49ers hired ex-Raiders DC Ken Norton Jr. as assistant head coach.

He'll focus on coaching inside linebackers where the Niners have 2017 first-rounder Reuben Foster looking to stay healthy and become one of the best at his position. Norton is a longtime Pete Carroll assistant who coached with Carroll at both USC and in Seattle as a linebackers coach. His tenure in Oakland as defensive coordinator lasted 2.5 seasons before he was fired in November.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms Julian Edelman (questionable, heel) is expected to play against the Bears in Week 7.

Sony Michel (knee) and Josh Gordon (hamstring) will also be active for Week 7. With Rob Gronkowski (back, ankle) sidelined, Edelman should see a steady diet of targets from Tom Brady Sunday in the Windy City. He's No. 19 in RotoPat's Week 7 wide receiver rankings.

Melvin Gordon (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 7 against the Titans.

Gordon was downgraded to questionable Saturday after his hamstring injury was more serious than initially thought. His status was tipped when Detrez Newsome was promoted from the practice squad. Hamstring injuries can linger, but Gordon has a bye next week to get healthy. Austin Ekeler will start for Gordon and is a plug-and-play RB2, with Justin Jackson backing him up.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Carlos Hyde has a chance to make his Jaguars debut against the Texans in Week 7.

It's been a whirlwind 48 hours for Hyde, who arrived in Jacksonville around midnight on Friday, passed his physical Saturday morning, then attended the team's walkthrough later that afternoon. Hyde reportedly got a "crash course" on the team's playbook, though obviously if he sees the field Sunday it won't be for more than a handful of snaps. T.J. Yeldon is still safe to fire up as a borderline RB1 in all formats.

Allen Robinson (groin) is expected to play against the Patriots in Week 7.

Robinson practiced Friday and was considered on track to play. He'll continue to start in 3-WR sets with Taylor Gabriel and slot wideout Anthony Miller. Robinson arguably has the toughest matchup (albeit a winnable one) among Chicago's wideouts as he'll likely draw shadow coverage from Stephen Gilmore. He remains a risky WR2 considering he tweaked his groin only four days ago.

Isaiah Crowell (foot) is expected to play against the Vikings in Week 7.

Crowell followed the same practice schedule as last week, getting in a limited session on Friday before eventually suiting up against the Colts. He'll again play through his questionable tag in a much tougher matchup against the Vikings' nightmarish front-seven. Crowell has been a boom-bust weekly performer reliant of long runs and/or short TDs, and that won't change in Week 7.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Rob Gronkowski (back) is not expected to play Week 7 against the Bears, but he is expected back for Week 8.

There was at least some concern about Gronkowski's long-term outlook after he tweaked his troublesome back, but Schefter reports it will just be a one-game absence. With Jacob Hollister (hamstring) also out, Dwayne Allen should play nearly every snap against the Bears.
Oct 20 - 11:53 PM

Travis Benjamin (foot) is expected to play against the Titans in Week 7.

Benjamin hasn't played since re-aggravating his foot in Week 4. Although he's off the fantasy radar, his presence alone plummets Mike Williams' usage. Williams played just 53% of the Chargers' offensive snaps in Week 1, but hasn't played less than 63% since Benjamin's been out. Williams is a boom-bust WR4 in this particular matchup against the Titans' secondary.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Khalil Mack (ankle) is expected to play Week 7 against the Patriots.

It is not a surprise considering Mack played through the same injury last week, but he was noticeably hobbled in that game. Even so, he should be able to find success against a Patriots line which will be without RT Marcus Cannon.

The Miami Herald confirms the Dolphins have "spoken to multiple teams" about trading DeVante Parker.

Parker trade rumors have been out for awhile, but talks are starting to heat up with the deadline approaching. The Dolphins don't need Parker and are higher on Albert Wilson and Danny Amendola behind Kenny Stills. Miami is going to have to lower their third-round asking price if they want to move the perennially-injured Parker. Parker's fifth-year option was picked up before the season, so he's signed through 2019.
Oct 20 - 8:02 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Rob Gronkowski (doubtful, back/ankle) is "highly unlikely" to play in Week 7 against Chicago.

This became obvious after Gronkowski didn't travel with the team to Chicago. Gronk's ankle is fine, but his back injury is going to sideline him for at least one week. This has the makings for a potential multi-game absence given Gronk's longstanding back problems. Julian Edelman (questionable, heel) and Chris Hogan will see more underneath targets with Gronkowski out.

Texans activated S Andre Hal from the reserve/NFI list.

It's an impressive recovery after Hal was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in June. The Texans will likely ease Hal back after missing all of training camp and the last six weeks, but this is an upgrade to their safety rotation. Houston released OLB Daeshon Hall to clear a roster spot.
