Darren Sproles looks to be on his way back. Les Bowen via twitter has stated, "Sproles said he was full practice participant today, was close Sunday, hopeful this week but won’t know until he gets more full practices."
Pyro's take: Even though its not official, I say he plays. Great news for owners, as he has played solid all season.
Nate Ulrich, Cleveland Browns beat writer has stated via twitter that "HC Mike Pettine: We would like to see Crowell get more touches. Gave Tate more late in game b/c of ball security concerns w/ Crowell"
Pyro's take: Crowell, Tate, West, who knows who is getting touches and who isnt anymore in Cleveland. The rotating running back head of Mike Pettine has been interesting thus far, and as long as they keep winning nobody will put pressure on him to stop, for our fantasy benefits.
Rookie Charles Sims could be in-line for more playing time, according to Tampa Bay Buccaneers reporter Tom Krasniqi "From the sound of things, RB Charles Sims will play a TON when he's ready."
Sims was the 69th overall pick in May's draft. There's an outside chance that Sims could become a flex option as early as Week 10 against the Falcons. The Bucs play the Browns this week.
Pyro's take: The Buccs season is virtually over, and they would like to see what they have on their roster in live game situations. If Sims plays well enough, he could turn that into more of a full-time position starting the next season, and forcing a trade with Doug Martin.
Can Inman, 49ers reporter is stating that "Marcus Lattimore will make season debut on practice field Wednesday"
Pyro's take: Maybe the 49ers will finally be able to get Lattimore out on the field. He has been with the 49ers two years now. He must be one great talent, because most teams wouldn't even consider keeping a player this long, with this kind of injury. We shall see what they were hanging on to very soon.
Stepfan Taylor may be out for two-four weeks according to Mike Jurecki via twitter "Hearing RB Stepfan Taylor will be out 2-4 weeks a lot will depending how quick the calf heals in the next couple of weeks, in walking boot."
Pyro's take: Taylor brings more of the goal-line duties than anything else. Look for Ellington to be considered now down by the end zone, which is good news for PPR owners.
