Updates/analysis (most recent first)

Sam Bradford (10:45 a.m.): According to ESPN NFL Nation’s Courtney Cronin, Sam Bradford’s pregame warmup lasted only 10-15 minutes and did not include any running and very little footwork. It sounds a lot like Case Keenum will indeed get the call for Minnesota today.

Josh Doctson (10:05 a.m): ESPN’s John Keim reports that the Redskins receiver will be able to play on Sunday, though he could be limited in terms of how many snaps he sees. Jamison Crowder is still likely to be the better fantasy performer among Washington wideouts.

Jordan Howard (7:35 a.m.): ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Bears running back is expected to play today against the Buccaneers, despite his shoulder injury. Still, Week 1 standout Tarik Cohen might be the “safer” play, especially with the Chicago offensive line missing Kyle Long (ankle).

Sam Bradford (7:30 a.m.): It looks like Bradford (knee) will be a gametime decision for the Vikings, who are unlikely to decide on their starting quarterback until after pregame workouts. If Minnesota goes with either Case Keenum or Kyle Sloter, all Vikings receivers take a fantasy value hit.

Official Sunday inactives should begin coming in at approximately 11:30 a.m. ET for the early games, 2:30 p.m. ET for the late games and 7 p.m. ET for the Sunday night game.
