Player News 9/23

Falcons RB Michael Turner was a full participant in practice Thursday and is expected to play this weekend against the Saints. Turner could have a big day based on what we saw out of Frank Gore Monday night.

Arizona RB Beanie Wells is expected to make his season debut Sunday at home against Oakland. He has a great matchup this week and should be installed back into all lineups barring any sudden setback. He’s a decent RB2 and great flex play. SOURCE: Darren Urban on Twitter

Browns RB Jerome Harrison sat out practice again today and is a risky play Sunday against the Ravens. Peyton Hillis will get bulk of carries if Harrison can’t go along with 2nd year back James Davis will see an increased role regardless of Harrison’s status.

Jake Delhomme, has a high ankle sprain. Seneca Wallace is expected to make his second consecutive start, but Tony Grossi of Cleveland Plain Dealer believes Jake could return next week. Source: Tony Grossi on Twitter

Mardy Gilyard, Rams rookie WR, will see more snaps this Sunday and has some potential in big play leagues because of his speed. Keep an eye on this kid as he could be a waiver gem in the coming weeks.

Ryan Mathews, Chargers RB, has a high ankle sprain and believes he will play Sunday. I can’t imagine Norv Turner taking a chance of his prized rookie making this injury worse and expect him not to play this week. If Mathews is out RB’s Mike Tolbert and Darren Sproles will see alot of snaps. Tolbert would handle bulk of carries with Sproles being more of a pass catcher with a few carries sprinkled in and makes a decent flex play.
