The Bears activated Damien Williams from the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Williams was unvaccinated, which is a big reason it took him so long to be able to return to the team under the NFL’s rules. But it’s good to hear that he’s back. We’ll see how much the versatile running back will play tomorrow after being out of practice for two weeks. The Bears could certainly use his skillset against a Buccaneers defense that’s incredibly difficult to run the ball on.
T.Y. Hilton (quad) has been ruled out for Week 7.
Hilton made a strong return to the lineup last week in his season debut, but he’ll now miss tomorrow night’s matchup against the 49ers and is presumably being ruled out while not making the trip to San Francisco. Hopefully Hilton doesn’t miss much time because of this quad issue.
Dawson Knox (hand) is expected to return in about three weeks, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.
There hasn’t been any clear recovery timetable given up until now, but the thought had been that it would be around this long for a recovery given that Knox isn’t expected to go on injured reserve. Hopefully Knox is back in two or three games and continue his breakout campaign.
The Seahawks have designated Rashaad Penny to return from injured reserve.
Penny is now able to practice, and we’d say there is a chance he returns for Monday night, especially with Alex Collins (hip) banged up. Even if he were to be in line to start, though, Penny wouldn’t be a highly recommended fantasy option for a difficult matchup versus the Saints.
Trey Lance (knee) is out for Week 7.
Jimmy Garoppolo is fortunately off the injury report to start, but Nate Sudfeld will be the No. 2 quarterback for the second game in a row. Hopefully Lance can get healthy in time to return in Week 8.
Jimmy Garoppolo will play in Week 7.
Garoppolo missed just one game with his calf injury, and the Niners will have their starter back on Sunday night. Jimmy G should have a slightly higher floor and ceiling this week with Trey Lance (knee) out.
Julio Jones (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 7.
While Jones is listed as questionable, he indicated to the media today that he’d be out there on Sunday against the Chiefs. It’s been a relatively disappointing season to this point for Julio, but the super-talented receiver has upside in a potential shootout this week.
