Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (concussion) practiced Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday. Coach McCarthy said Rodgers is “ready to play” barring any unforeseen setbacks. Keep him in your lineups in a solid home matchup against the Dolphins.

Colts RB’s Joseph Addai(shoulder) and Mike Hart(hip) returned to full practices Friday and will both play, with Hart backing up Addai. Donald Brown (hamstring) didn’t practice Friday and is unlikely to play again this week. WR’s Austin Collie(foot) and Pierre Garcon(hamstring) practiced without limitations Friday and will start Sunday night in Washington.

Maurice Jones-Drew(wrist,ankle) returned to practice Friday and will start Monday night against the Titans.

Lions WR Calvin Johnson(shoulder) had his most intense practice of the week Friday and it looks like he’ll go Sunday against the Giants in a tough matchup. SOURCE: Dave Birkett on Twitter

Lions WR Nate Burleson(ankle) was limited in practice Friday but is officially listed as probable for Sunday’s game against the Giants. RB Jahvid Best (toe) was also limited Friday but will start in a tough matchup Sunday.

Saints RB Pierre Thomas(ankle) has been officially ruled out for Week 6 against Tampa Bay. This was not unexpected as Thomas has been unable to practice all week. We’ll just wait and see how he feels going into week 7. Ladell Betts and Chris Ivory will once again split backfield duties. UPDATE: Thomas’s ankle sprain was originally diagnosed as a 4-6 week injury, which mean’s he’ll likely miss week 7 game as well. This is unfortunate as he is already expected to miss again and with their bye week not until week 10, it’ll be at least 5 games fantasy owners will be without Thomas.

Vikings QB Brett Favre(elbow) is being considered a game time decision as to whether he will play or not. He did do some light throwing Friday and should be good to go. This game could be do or die for the Vikings so I can’t imagine him not going. SOURCE: Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews practiced in full Friday and is line for more touches this week. Mike Tolbert still has value as a flex play against the Rams, but this could very well be his last week as a fantasy starter. SOURCE:  Kevin Acee on Twitter

WR Legedu Naanee (hamstring) missed practice again today and is expected to sit against the Rams. He hasn’t had any value since his great week one performance, so if you still own him, its time to cut bait. SOURCE:  Kevin Acee on Twitter

Texans WR Jacoby Jones (calf) fully practiced Friday and is expected to play Sunday against the Chiefs. SOURCE: Nick Scurfield on Twitter

RB Darren McFadden(hamstring) has still not been able to practice and is unlikely to play Sunday against the 49ers. Michael Bush will get the start and is a solid flex play this week.

Raiders QB Bruce Gradkowski (shoulder) isn’t expected to play Sunday and missed practice all week with this injury. Jason Campbell will get the start against the 49ers. SOURCE: Vittorio Tafur on Twitter

Broncos WR DeMaryius Thomas (head/neck) and RB Knowshon Moreno both practiced today and are looking like they’ll play Sunday against the Jets, but are both still being considered game time decisions. Neither are good plays this week, especially Thomas who has fallen to 4th on the depth chart. SOURCE: Andrew Mason on Twitter

Tampa WR Mike Williams (foot) is expected to be a game time decision Sunday against the Saints. He hasn’t practiced all week which is starting to worry me, so stay tuned early Sunday for an update. He’s a solid WR3 if he can play. SOURCE: Bucs on Twitter
