Week 3 fantasy football injury report

This week’s key game-time decisions: RB James Conner, WR Gabriel Davis, WR Jerry Jeudy, WR T.J. Hockenson, WR Keenan Allen, QB Justin Herbert, WR Jakobi Meyers, QB Jameis Winston, RB Alvin Kamara, TE Taysom Hill, WR Corey Davis, WR Russell Gage, WR Julio Jones, RB J.K. Dobbins

ARIZONA CARDINALS 
WR Rondale Moore
(hamstring) will not dress for the third straight week. RB James Conner (ankle) will be a game-time decision. He’s questionable after a limited session Friday. DE J.J. Watt (calf) fully practiced Friday and isn’t on the final report.

ATLANTA FALCONS
No fantasy injuries of note

BALTIMORE RAVENS
RB J.K. Dobbins (knee) is questionable, while WR Devin Duvernay (concussion) has cleared the protocol and will play. Both fully practiced Friday. TE Isaiah Likely (groin), who was limited Friday, is questionable, and CB Marlon Humphrey (groin) joins him with the same status. OT Ronnie Stanley (ankle) is doubtful. QB Lamar Jackson (elbow) fully practiced Thursday and Friday. He’s off the report.

BUFFALO BILLS 
WR Gabriel Davis (ankle) was limited all week and is questionable. He’s a game-time decision. Buffalo’s defense will be without S Micah Hyde (neck), CB Dane Jackson (neck), DT Ed Oliver (ankle), and DT Jordan Phillips (hamstring), in addition to star CB Tre’Davious White (knee) already being on the Physically Unable to Perform list. S Jordan Poyer (foot) was upgraded to limited in Friday’s practice and is questionable.

CAROLINA PANTHERS
RB Christian McCaffrey (ankle) avoided a designation and will play.

CHICAGO BEARS 
WR Velus Jones (hamstring) is doubtful for Week 3. CB Jaylon Johnson (quadriceps) and LB Roquan Smith (hip) are questionable. Neither practiced Friday, which doesn’t bode well for their availability.

CINCINNATI BENGALS
TE Hayden Hurst (groin) went limited-full-limited in his three practice sessions this week, drawing a questionable tag. Consider him a game-time call. WR Tee Higgins (toe) was a full-go during Friday’s session and didn’t draw an injury tag.

CLEVELAND BROWNS — played Thursday
No fantasy injuries of note

DALLAS COWBOYS — Monday Night Football
LB Micah Parsons (illness), QB Dak Prescott (right thumb) and TE Dalton Schultz (knee) did not practice Friday, so check back Saturday for an update. WR Michael Gallup (knee) will make his season debut.

DENVER BRONCOS
WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) and WR Jerry Jeudy (rib, shoulder) are questionable. Hamler was a full participant Friday, though Jeudy was limited and is a game-time decision.

DETROIT LIONS
TE T.J. Hockenson (hip) was limited all week and is questionable. He’s a game-time decision. RB D’Andre Swift (ankle) is questionable following consecutive limited appearances, though he’s expected to play again. DE Aidan Hutchinson (thigh) is questionable, as is C Frank Ragnow (foot). Both were limited Friday.

GREEN BAY PACKERS 
WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) managed to survive two weeks before his injury-prone ways caught up with him — he has been ruled out. OT David Bakhtiari (knee), WR Randall Cobb (illness) and WR Christian Watson (hamstring) are all questionable. Bakhtiari was limited, but the wideouts didn’t practice and are trending the wrong direction. WR Allen Lazard (ankle) sat Thursday and returned to a limited session Friday. He escaped the injury report.

HOUSTON TEXANS 
With TE Brevin Jordan (ankle) out and TE Pharaoh Brown (shoulder) questionable, TE O.J. Howard could see a larger role.

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS 
LB Shaquille Leonard (back) won’t play once again. DE Yannick Ngakoue (back) is questionable and a gameday decision. WRs Alec Pierce (concussion) and Michael Pittman Jr. (quad) will play without injury designations.

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS 
No fantasy injuries of note

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS 

PK Harrison Butker (ankle) will not be available, though WR Mecole Hardman (heel) avoided an injury designation.

LAS VEGAS RAIDERS 
WR Hunter Renfrow (concussion) has been ruled out. RB Josh Jacobs (illness) is questionable and didn’t practice Thursday or Friday. RB Brandon Bolden (hamstring) fully practiced Friday and evaded the injury report.

LOS ANGELES CHARGERS
CB J.C. Jackson (ankle) returned last week but suffered a setback and is doubtful. Starting C Corey Linsley (knee) joins him as doubtful. WR Keenan Allen (hamstring), QB Justin Herbert (ribs) are questionable. None of these players practiced Friday, and the latter two are true game-time calls.

LOS ANGELES RAMS 
WR Van Jefferson (knee) remains out of action.

MIAMI DOLPHINS
CB Xavien Howard (groin) is questionable and was limited the final two days of practice, suggesting he’ll be a game-time call.

MINNESOTA VIKINGS Standout S Harrison Smith (concussion) was ruled out, while LB Eric Kendricks (toe) is questionable.

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS 
WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) is questionable after consecutive DNPs prior to Friday’s limited session. He’ll be a game-time decision.

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS 
TE Taysom Hill (rib), RB Alvin Kamara (rib), S Marcus Maye (rib), OT Ryan Ramczyk (elbow) and QB Jameis Winston (back, ankle) are questionable. They all were limited the entire week of practice and should be treated as game-time decisions.

NEW YORK GIANTS — Monday Night Football
No fantasy injuries of note

NEW YORK JETS 
QB Zach Wilson (knee) has been ruled out, and QB Joe Flacco will again start for the Jets. WR Corey Davis (knee) was limited Thursday and Friday, earning himself a questionable designation. That usually creates a game-time decision.

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES 
No fantasy injuries of note

PITTSBURGH STEELERS — played Thursday
No fantasy injuries of note

RB Tyrion Davis-Price (ankle) has been ruled out. TE George Kittle (groin) is off the injury report and will make his 2022 debut.
