Rams' David Edwards in concussion protocol, ruled out Monday

Sat Oct 1 9:22pm ET

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) Rams left guard David Edwards will miss Los Angeles' game at San Francisco on Monday night after reporting possible symptoms of a concussion.

Rams coach Sean McVay said that Edwards ''said he was a little bit foggy'' after individual drills at practice Saturday. The Rams (2-1) immediately put him in the concussion protocol.

Edwards is in his fourth season as a starter on the Rams' line. The Wisconsin product has started 44 of his 52 games with Los Angeles, and he started all 21 games last season in the Rams' run to their Super Bowl championship.

''It was great for him to be able to kind of communicate,'' McVay said. ''We took the right steps, especially, with the situation that occurred on Thursday. But really just in general, regardless of whether or not that happened with Tua (Tagovailoa), it's something we take very serious, and I appreciate him handling it the right way. I know he wants to be out there with his teammates.''

Edwards will miss Monday's game along with starting center Brian Allen and backup right guard Tremayne Anchrum. Bobby Evans is likely to take over at left guard, while Alaric Jackson will play right guard with Coleman Shelton sliding over to center.

Los Angeles' line depth has been seriously tested this fall after the offseason departures of starters Andrew Whitworth and Austin Corbett. Rookie offensive guard Logan Bruss, the Rams' highest draft pick last April, already was ruled out for the season after tearing knee ligaments in their second preseason game.

McVay also ruled out defensive backs David Long (groin) and rookie Cobie Durant (hamstring) for a second straight game, but safety Jordan Fuller and rookie cornerback Derion Kendrick are expected to play despite being limited in practice with injuries.

Player Notes
Julio Jones Oct 2 2:20am ET
Julio Jones

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Julio Jones (knee) will likely play in Week 4 versus the Kansas City Chiefs, per ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. The veteran didn't practice on Friday, which is usually not a good sign. However, barring a setback during pregame warmups, he will be out there. Jones began his tenure with the Bucs by catching three of his five targets for 69 yards during the Week 1 encounter against the Cowboys but hasn't been available since. Chris Godwin (hamstring) is also expected to suit up, and with Mike Evans returning from a one-game suspension, Jones should be viewed as a flex option. But since his official designation won't be revealed until after the early lock time, fantasy managers should consider keeping him on the bench.

Zay Jones

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Zay Jones (ankle) is expected to play on Sunday against the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles. The 27-year-old is dealing with an ankle injury, although it appears he was going to suit up all along. Jones is entering Week 4 with 19 catches for 173 yards and a touchdown, and despite the task ahead, he has at least earned a flex spot for fantasy managers in deep leagues.

Chris Godwin Oct 2 2:10am ET
Chris Godwin

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 4 against the Chiefs. However, the veteran will test things out pregame before he's given an definitive designation. Godwin was heading into the season fresh off a knee injury. Yet, he injured his hamstring during the season opener versus the Cowboys and hasn't been seen since. With an official word surrounding Godwin's status not expected to come until after the first set of games begin, fantasy managers should consider holding him out another week if possible, especially since he may be limited anyway.

Dawson Knox Oct 2 1:50am ET
Dawson Knox

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox (hip, back) is expected to suit up for the Week 4 meeting with the Baltimore Ravens. The 25-year-old practiced sparingly during the week and was classified as questionable. However, it appears he'll be good to go, so Josh Allen will have one of his favorite targets on the field in a game that may turn into a shootout. With that said, Knox only has nine catches for 71 yards this season. While he remains one of the better tight ends in the league, he has always been a hit-or-miss option for managers, especially since his fantasy usefulness is usually contingent on whether or not he finds the end zone

Gabriel Davis Oct 2 1:40am ET
Gabriel Davis

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Gabe Davis (ankle) is expected to suit up against the Ravens on Sunday, per ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. The 23-year-old has been burdened by an ankle injury for most of the year and practiced sparingly throughout the week. Davis has had a decent season thus far, hauling in seven of his 11 targets for 125 yards and a touchdown. He has a chance to thrive in Week 4 in a game that could turn into a shootout. However, while he is a must-start candidate, fantasy managers should acknowledge that he may not be fully healthy.

Marquise Brown Oct 2 1:30am ET
Marquise Brown

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown (foot) is expected to play on Sunday against the Panthers, per ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. Hollywood didn't see much practice time throughout the week, logging a limited session on Friday. The 25-year-old is coming off a stellar Week 3 performance versus the Los Angeles Rams, finishing with 14 receptions for 140 yards. Although managers shouldn't expect that type of production in Week 4, Brown is always a threat to make things happen on the fantasy end, regardless of the matchup.

Christian McCaffrey Oct 2 1:20am ET
Christian McCaffrey

Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (thigh) is expected to play in Week 4 against Arizona, according to NFL insider Adam Schefter. The veteran missed a few practices throughout the week before logging a limited session on Friday, so it appeared he was at least trending in the right direction. McCaffrey has played in all three of the Panthers' games this season, accumulating 243 yards and a touchdown off 50 carries while catching 10 passes for 57 yards. Fantasy managers should navigate this situation carefully, especially since McCaffrey's official designation won't be revealed until after Sunday's first set of games commence. However, if he gets the green light, he's a must-start despite a semi-challenging matchup versus an adequate Cardinals run-stopping unit.

Patrick Mahomes Oct 2 12:30am ET
Patrick Mahomes

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense/special teams will look to contain star quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs explosive offense in Week 4. Sunday Night Football between the two teams has a projected over/under of 48.5 points. Tampa Bay's defense has been stingy towards opposing offenses, allowing just nine points per game, which ranks first in the NFL. The Bucs' defense allows 289 total yards per contest to opposing offenses, which is good for the fourth-best in the league. Sunday night versus Kansas City will be their most formidable challenge so far this season. Still, the Bucs' defense should provide solid numbers and is considered a borderline starting option in Week 4.

Ryan Succop Oct 2 12:20am ET
Ryan Succop

Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Ryan Succop has converted eight of nine field goal attempts and is perfect 3-for-3 in extra-point tries in 2022. The 36-year-old is one of the most reliable kickers and has tallied 27 points this season. He will look to keep things going against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4. Sunday's game between the Chiefs is projected to be a high-scoring affair, evidenced by the over/under being set at 48.5 points. The Bucs will also be getting back Mike Evans (suspension) and potentially Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Julio Jones (knee), who are game-time decisions. Succop should have plenty of opportunities to rack up points and is considered a top-five option in Week 4.

Tua Tagovailoa Oct 1 10:40pm ET
Tua Tagovailoa

Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (head, neck) remains in concussion protocol. However, per NFL insider Ian Rapoport, all of his latest tests "came back clean." Tagovailoa has been taking a beating over the last few weeks, and he was recently carted off the field on a backboard during the Thursday night loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. With that said, even though the Dolphins have some time to rest before the Week 5 divisional matchup against the New York Jets, fantasy managers may not see the signal-caller in uniform. In any event, as long as the 24-year-old is on the shelf, Teddy Bridgewater will be under center.

Danny Gray Oct 1 10:20pm ET
Danny Gray

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Danny Gray (hip) is doubtful for the Monday night divisional meeting with the Los Angeles Rams. The 2022 third-round pick hasn't practiced all week as he tends to a hip issue. With that said, Gray has only been targeted twice in his two games this season, so even if he's active, he's not someone who should be in any fantasy lineup.

Ross Dwelley Oct 1 10:10pm ET
Ross Dwelley

San Francisco 49ers tight end Ross Dwelley (rib) is questionable for the Monday Night Football showdown against the Rams. Tyler Kroft (knee) has already been ruled out with an MCL sprain, his second consecutive absence. As a result, the Niners may be down to George Kittle and Charlie Woerner to handle things at the tight end position. With that said, no matter who is available, Kittle is by far the No. 1 guy for fantasy purposes.

Tyler Kroft

San Francisco 49ers tight end Tyler Kroft (knee) won't play on Monday night against the Rams. The 29-year-old has been plagued by an MCL sprain, an injury that held him out of the Week 3 meeting with the Broncos. With Ross Dwelley (rib) questionable, George Kittle and Charlie Woerner may be the only healthy tight ends on the roster. Of course, the former will do most of the heavy lifting in Week 4, regardless of who else is active behind him on the depth chart.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (abdomen) plans to suit up for Sunday's meeting with Tampa. The 27-year-old missed Thursday's practice session while being limited during a few sessions throughout the week. Valdes-Scantling has caught 10 of his 18 targets for 105 yards in his first three games with the Chiefs. However, he has yet to find the end zone. Under normal circumstances, he would be considered a flex option at best. Yet, since there's a chance Valdes-Scantling won't be 100% despite his availability, fantasy managers may want to consider holding him out of this one.

DE Arik Armstead (foot), TE Ross Dwelley (rib), and DT Javon Kinlaw (knee) are listed as questionable, and WR Danny Gray (hip) is listed as doubtful on the final injury report.

Dynasty | Eagles backup running back Trey Sermon could see snaps on Sunday following the news that Boston Scott will likely be downgraded to "out" Dynasty Analysis: It would be Sermon's first action of the year and he should operate as the team's RB3 behind Miles Sanders and Kenneth Gainwell. Any opportunity for the young back is a good one but Sermon has a long road before recapturing any dynasty intrigue. He's listed as DLF's RB71.

Daniel Carlson

Las Vegas Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson has been perfect to start the 2022 season after finishing as the best fantasy kicker in 2021. Although the Denver Broncos' defense has looked stout through three weeks, Derek Carr and the Raiders' offense will likely be its toughest test yet in Week 4. A fair amount of points should be scored in this AFC West showdown and Carlson remains a top-tier fantasy option at the kicker position.
