Gates returned from a four-game PED suspension and caught nine passes for 92 yards and two touchdowns in the Chargers' 24-20 loss to Pittsburgh on Monday night.
Analysis: Fantasy owners should be thrilled with Gates' return. He should continue to play a big role in the San Diego offense. However, backup Ladarius Green still chipped in with five receptions and 50 yards.
Bell rushed 21 times for 111 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' 24-20 win at San Diego on Monday night.
Analysis: Bell's TD against the Chargers was a 1-yard surge on the final play of the game. He's scored once in each of his first three games of the season, and he's rushed for 240 yards while averaging 5.6 per carry in the last two.
Wilkerson will have precautionary X-rays on his sore ribs that limited him at practice in the team's return from its bye-week break.
Analysis: Coach Todd Bowles says Wilkerson, who leads the team with 3 1/2 sacks, only made the team aware of the injury Monday. The injury isn't believed to be serious or potentially keep him out Sunday against Washington.
Bortles sprained his throwing shoulder in a 38-31 loss at Tampa Bay on Sunday.
Analysis: The team says Bortles suffered a "Grade 1 AC joint sprain" early in the game but played through it. Coach Gus Bradley adds, "We think he should be in good shape" to play against Houston on Sunday. Bradley added, "don't be surprised if you don't see him out there Wednesday. If he could practice Wednesday, it would be a situation where we don't want him to be sore and affect his throwing mechanics. But we think he should be OK."
Jacquizz Rodgers, Chi, RB
Rodgers will miss the rest of the season with a broken right arm.
Analysis: Rodgers, one of the backups to Matt Forte, suffered the injury in a win over Kansas City.
Haden will likely miss one game with a concussion sustained during Sunday's overtime win at Baltimore.
Analysis: Haden, who was already playing with a broken right ring finger, got hurt when he came up to stop a screen pass on the first play of the fourth quarter. Browns coach Mike Pettine said Monday that Haden has been placed in the NFL's concussion protocol.
Richardson has returned to practice after serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. He was added to the active roster and New York waived tight end Wes Saxton to make room.
Analysis: Richardson was back with the team Monday following the Jets' bye-week break and coach Todd Bowles says he will play in New York's home game against Washington on Sunday, although his role is uncertain. Richardson could face additional discipline from the league later this season or next after his arrest on charges of resisting arrest in Missouri in July. His next court hearing is Nov. 9.
Luck was a full participant in Monday's practice for the first time in two weeks, though his availability for Sunday night's showdown with New England remains unknown.
Analysis: Luck is still day-to-day with a sore right shoulder and had been limited in practice since leading Indianapolis to a 35-33 win at Tennessee on Sept. 27. "It feels better every day," Luck said. "It was good to go through practice without limitations in a sense, get out there and throw. It's feeling better." Practice wasn't open to the media on Monday and Luck wouldn't go into detail about what exactly he did.
The Bills filled an open roster spot on Monday by activating defensive end Ikemefuna Enemkpali, who finished serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's player personal conduct policy.
Analysis: Enemkpali was suspended for a punch that broke the jaw of New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith during a locker room altercation in August. The Bills, who claimed Enemkpali on waivers, were granted a one-week roster exemption and had until Monday to activate or cut the player. He takes the roster spot of Cierre Wood, who tore his ACL on Sunday.
Cierre Wood, Buf, RB
Wood will miss the remainder of the season after tearing his ACL on Sunday.
Analysis: Wood was placed on injured reserve after he was hurt in Buffalo's 14-13 win at Tennessee. Starting running back LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is out indefinitely. Backup Karlos Williams (concussion) has a chance to return Sunday, when Buffalo (3-2) hosts Cincinnati (5-0).
Manning had a career-best 41 completions in 54 attempts in Sunday's win, and his throw to the double-covered Larry Donnell finished off an 82-yard drive with a 12-yard touchdown with 21 seconds left.
Analysis: The two-time Super Bowl MVP threw for three scores and has 10 TD passes in his last four games, though next week's trip to Philadelphia is a daunting one since Manning laid an egg there last year as the Giants were blanked in embarrassing fashion.
