NFL Actives/Inactives: T.J. Yeldon out, Alshon Jeffery in for Week 6
Welcome to Week 6 of the NFL season! There are 12 games scheduled for Sunday, and news is trickling out about whether or not players listed as questionable on injury reports earlier this week will be starting. Stay up do date on who’s playing, and who’s sitting out in Week 6.
• Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon is INACTIVE with a groin injury, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. Yeldon left the team’s Week 5 loss to Tampa Bay in the fourth quarter and did not return. He sat out practice all week and was listed as questionable. Toby Gerhart and Denard Robinson will see an increased workload in the Jacksonville backfield against Houston.
• Bears wideout Alshon Jeffery is ACTIVE after sitting out four straight weeks due to a hamstring issue. Jeffery sustained the injury during practice leading up to Week 2. He’ll be paired with quarterback Jay Cutler once again after Chicago’s starting signalcaller returned last Sunday. Wide receiver Eddie Royal and tight end Martellus Bennett are also ACTIVE.
• Bills running back Karlos Williams is INACTIVE for a second straight week due to a concussion. LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is ACTIVE and will start. Other notable Buffalo INACTIVES are quarterback Tyrod Taylor and wide receiver Percy Harvin.
• Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (sprained ankle) is improving, but not expected to suit up against the Chargers, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport. Randall Cobb and James Jones will once again be the top targets for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
• Browns tailback Isaiah Crowell is ACTIVE after practicing on a limited basis due to a toe injury. Crowell gets the Broncos in Week 6, who have allowed the fifth-fewest rushing yards per game this year.
Ravens running back Justin Forsett, who injured his ankle near the end of regulation last week, is looking likely to play, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The Ravens think he should be available, though that’s not 100%. Forsett has said he will be a game-time decision. In the event he isn’t able to go, rookie Buck Allen will receive an increased workload.
