Injuries

It does look like Andrew Luck should return next Sunday, but with two wins under the belt of Matt Hasselbeck, who knows? 

Steve Smith, Sr., who is as tough as they come, but similarly, not a spring chicken any longer, is having a great year, but it looks like he is down with a back injury. Smith is officially "doubtful" but try just taking a step when your back hurts, you know?

LeSean McCoy (hamstring), Sammy Watkins (calf), and Karlos Williams (concussion) are all down making a Buffalo play a wing and a prayer

Alshon Jeffery, Jay Cutler, and Jimmy Clausen are all questionable for the Bears, but expect Cutler to play for sure. Also expect the Chiefs defense, in Kansas City, to get some muscle out of their systems against the strugglings Midway guys.

Dez Bryant (leg) and Tony Romo (shoulder) are still down.

Eric Ebron (knee) is down for three weeks which is tough. Ebron was developing as the #1 Tight End in Detroit, but don't count on him for a spell (think Richard Rodgers as a substitute, as available).

Cecil Shorts (shoulder) is out, as are Victor Cruz and DeSean Jackson.

Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) is out, and Fred Jackson (knee) is not to be depended upon either.

Rosters/Plays

Julio Jones and Leonard Hankerson are both probable for the red hot Falcons, and both make fun plays, especially Hankerson who has two solid weeks in a row and is the #2 guy for Matt Ryan.

Antonio Gates and Julius Thomas are active and plays today.

Jeremy Hill? Ok, Zack Crockett syndrome. 40 yards last week, but three scores. Take the points where you can, and Hill gets the goal line touches.

Travis Kelce (groin/thumb) looks fine against the Bears, so watch Alex Smith et al get some points healthy.

Marques Colston and Brandin Cooks are both ready to go for the Saints.

I have long been a Ronnie Hillman fan, and I do like him today facing the Raiders in Oakland.

Similarly, Thomas Rawls gets the bulk of Seattle touches with Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch down. And, well, it is hard to not like Todd Gurley no matter what.

Moving to baseball, but with the injury to Ruben Tejada, Wilmer Flores becomes the guy for the Mets. He quietly hit 16 homers last year, and should have been starting anyway.

Milestones

The Fish resigned Ichiro Suzuki for one more season, giving the wonderful outfielder a chance to pick up the 49 hits he still needs to hit 3000 as an American Major Leaguer. Nice move cementing a Hall of Fame career that never should have been questioned in the first place. 

Again, remember you can play against us at the Mastersball 50-team 50/50 Challenge and you can follow me @lawrmichaels.
