Week 4 injury report: Alvin Kamara out; CMC is set to play; Dalvin Cook, Gabe Davis, Marquis Brown questionable

Godwin (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Chiefs after having limited practice on Wednesday and Friday this week. According to early Sunday reports, there is optimism that Godwin will be able to play. However, whether he’ll handle a normal load is another matter, considering he only made it through the first half of the first game against the Cowboys before being benched. Julio Jones (knee), assuming he plays through his questionable tag, Russell Gage, also questionable but likely to play with his hamstring problem, and guys like Scotty Miller and Cole Beasley could help take over any workload Godwin saved.

St. Brown (ankle) will not play in Sunday’s game against the Seahawks after missing practice all week. The second-year star’s absence naturally creates a significant vacuum in Detroit’s passing game, considering he’s drawn 33 targets through three games. With fellow DJ Chark (ankle) also ruled out, the likes of Josh Reynolds (ankle), Kalif Raymond, Quintez Cephus and even tight end TJ Hockenson should benefit to varying degrees.

Thomas (foot) will not play in Sunday’s game in London against the Vikings after missing practice all week. Thomas’ absence is naturally a significant downgrade for the Saints’ air attack, which will be led by Andy Dalton in place of Jameis Winston (back/ankle). Jarvis Landry, who is questionable with an ankle injury but appears to have a solid chance to play, will likely take many of Thomas’ short-to-intermediate routes, with Tre’Quan Smith also expected to enjoy a shot at opportunity.

Allen (hamstring) will remain out for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars, though he played a few limited practices before missing Friday’s session. Mike Williams, Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter should continue to serve as Justin Herbert’s top three wideouts against Jacksonville.

Brown (foot) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Panthers after finishing the week with limited practice on Friday. However, according to early Sunday reports, Brown will line up and should once again serve as the clear top receiver for Kyler Murray after registering 17 targets in Week 3, although he will be joined by Rondale Moore for the first time this season.

Gallup (knee) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday’s game against the Commanders, leaving him in line to serve as at least a No. 3 receiving capacity against Washington, likely stepping in on Noah Brown’s snaps.
headshot-image

Davis (ankle) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Ravens after receiving some limited practice around Thursday’s missed session. According to early reports Sunday, Davis is expected to play through his issue for a second straight game after logging a whopping 86 snaps in the Week 3 loss to the Dolphins.

Hopkins will play the fourth game of his six-game suspension early in the season on Sunday. Kyler Murray plans to work with Marquise Brown (foot), debutant Rondale Moore (hamstring) and Greg Dortch as his top three wideouts.
headshot-image

Chark (ankle) was demoted to out for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks after taking a few limited practices surrounding Thursday’s missed session. Chark entered the weekend as questionable, but his updated status, combined with the confirmed absence of Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle), leaves Josh Reynolds as the de facto No. 1 receiver against Seattle.

Gage (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Chiefs after finishing the week by missing Friday’s practice. Gage will likely continue to play with his hamstring issue, which he has dealt with to some extent since camp, and could split snaps at No. 3 receiver with Julio Jones (knee) if the veteran is fit but his workload is handled .

Jones (knee) is questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Chiefs, but finished the week by missing practice after logging limited action on Wednesday and Thursday. According to early reports Sunday, the team was optimistic Jones and fellow tight end Chris Godwin (hamstring) could handle Kansas City. However, if Jones is out, Russell Gage will serve as the No. 3 receiver full-time while playing through his hamstring injury, as expected.

Landry (ankle) is questionable for Sunday’s showdown in London against the Vikings after finishing the week with two limited practices. If the veteran is fit, he’ll be in line for an expanded role with Michael Thomas (foot) on the sidelines, especially with Landry adept at handling many of the short-to-mid-range targets his absent teammate often sees.

Renfrow (concussion) will not play in Sunday’s game against the Broncos after missing practice all week. In Renfrow’s second straight absence, Mack Hollins, who exploded for eight receptions for 158 yards and a touchdown against the Titans in Week 3 with a 63-snap workload, should once again serve as the No. 2 receiver, with Keelan Cole likely to step up to third on the depth chart.
headshot-image

Myers (knee) was ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Packers after practicing on a limited basis all week. Myers’ absence should again give extra opportunities to Devante Parker, Kendrick Bourne and Nelson Ahlor, though the trio will catch passes from Brian Hoyer in place of Mack Jones (ankle).

Green (knee) will not play in Sunday’s game against the Panthers after missing practice all week. In his absence, Andy Isabella is expected to serve as the No. 4 tight end for Arizona against Carolina.

Jones (ankle) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Eagles but returned to limited practice Friday after missing Thursday’s session. According to early Sunday reports, Jones is expected to play.
headshot-image

Moore (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Panthers after practicing on a limited basis all week, but according to early reports Sunday, he will make his season debut against Carolina. The second-year wideout could step into a significant role immediately, given that AJ Green (knee) is already out and Marquise Brown (foot) could be less than full health.

Valdes-Scantling (abdomen) is questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Buccaneers after sandwiching limited sessions on Wednesday and Friday around Thursday’s absence. According to reports Saturday night, Valdez-Scantling is expected to line up and fill his usual role as the No. 2 receiver. If there was a setback, McCall Hardman would likely be the most immediate beneficiary.
headshot-image

Reynolds (ankle) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks, but finished the week with two limited practices after starting the week by missing Wednesday’s session. Assuming he’s fit, Reynolds, who has plenty of experience working with quarterback Jared Goff, could play a significant role with both Amon-Ra St. Brown and DJ Chark sidelined against Seattle with ankle injuries.
headshot-image

Toney (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bears after missing practice all week. In the absence of Toney, as well as Wan’Dale Robinson (knee) and Sterling Shepard (IR-knee), Kenny Golladay, Darius Slayton and David Sills will be in line for some additional snaps behind Richie James.
headshot-image

Shepard (knee) was on injured reserve Wednesday after suffering a torn ACL in Monday night’s Week 3 loss to the Cowboys, an injury that will sideline him for the rest of the season. In the context of Week 4, his absence will push Richie James into the de facto No. 1 receiver role, while Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton may also finally see significant snaps given Kadarius Toney (knee) and Wan’Dale Robinson (knee) are also out.

Watson, who missed the Week 3 win over the Buccaneers with a hip injury, will play in Sunday’s game against the Patriots after completing the week with two full practices.
headshot-image

Perriman (knee) is doubtful for Sunday night’s game against the Chiefs after missing practice all week. In his likely absence, Scotty Miller and Jaylon Darden could help fill Perryman’s role down low.
headshot-image

Philips (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Colts after practicing on a limited basis all week. If Phillips returns after a one-game absence, he could share the No. 3 spot with Nick Westbrook-Ihein.
headshot-image

Chenault (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals, but was able to take limited practice both Wednesday and Friday. If Chenault, who posted a 3-90-1 line in Week 3 against the Saints, goes down, Rashard Higgins, who has plenty of experience working with Baker Mayfield since their Browns days, will step up to the No. 4 receiver role.
headshot-image

Robinson (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bears after missing practice all week. With Kadarius Towney (hamstring) also out and Sterling Shepard (knee) on injured reserve, Richie James, Kenny Golladay, Darius Slayton and David Sills should serve as New York’s top four wideouts.
headshot-image

Jones (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Giants, but returned to full practice Friday. According to early reports Sunday, Jones is expected to line up and make his NFL debut, likely serving as the No. 4 receiver.

Kumerov (ankle) will not play in Sunday’s game against the Ravens after missing practice all week. Khalil Shakir will likely serve as the No. 5 receiver if Buffalo decides to keep that many wideouts active.
