Justin Herbert, Chargers:  Herbert jammed his throwing hand in Week 3, but ended up not missing any plays and is fully expected to be fine for Week 4.   


Running backs: 

James White, Patriots:  White hurt his hip severely enough that the entire season could be in jeopardy.  Brandon Bolden should become the primary pass-catching back for now.   

Giovani Bernard, Bucs:  Hurt his MCL in the final minutes of the Week 3 loss in Los Angeles.  Week 4 is currently uncertain; Leonard Fournette gets a bump if Bernard is out.   

Darrell Henderson, Rams:  Missed Week 3 due to bruised ribs, leaving Sony Michel to carry the load.  May return in Week 4 but would likely be limited even if he does.   

Christian McCaffrey, Panthers:  Left Week 3 with a hamstring injury and is expected to miss a few weeks.  Chuba Hubbard becomes the workhorse with McCaffrey not around.   


Wide Receivers: 

AJ Brown, Titans:  Brown tweaked his hamstring in what could turn into a 2-4 week injury.  Chester Rogers and/or Josh Reynold could benefit in Brown’s absence.   

Julio Jones, Titans:  Missed much of the second half of Week 3 in what was later determined to be a leg injury, something Jones is no stranger to.  With AJ Brown also out, the Titans may look to sign someone off the street.   

Tee Higgins, Bengals:  Higgins missed Week 3 with a shoulder injury and isn’t practicing yet, which doesn’t make his playing in a short Week 4 (Thursday night) look good.  Tyler Boyd becomes a lot more attractive in Higgins’ absence.   

JuJu Smith-Schuster, Steelers:  Left Week 3 with rib bruising, in which X-Rays were negative.  Status for Week 4 is up in the air; Chase Claypool would be the biggest beneficiary if Smith-Schuster misses time.   

Sterling Shepard/Darius Slayton, Giants:  Both left Week 3 with a hamstring injuries.  Status for Week 4 is unknown.  Kadarius Toney will be forced into a bigger workload if one or both miss the game.   

KJ Hamler, Broncos:  Hamler tore his ACL and is lost for the season.  Broncos will look to pick up the slack with Tim Patrick getting a large boost.   

Elijah Moore, Jets:  Left Week 3 with a concussion; status for Week 4 is unknown.   


Tight Ends: 

Tyler Croft, Jets:  Croft left Week 3 with a chest injury, and his status is currently unknown.  Ryan Griffin would be the target benefit if Croft remains out.
