Jordy Nelson – Green Bay Packers receivers continue to fight the injury bug. Jordy Nelson missed practice Monday with tweaked a hamstring. Coach Mike McCarthy said Nelson is day to day and the injury is nothing serious. Owners should monitor practice reports, but as of now I am keeping Nelson as my 6th ranked wide receiver.

Davante Adams – Nelsons teammate, Davante Adams also missed practice Monday with an injured wrist. The injury came while returning a punt Saturday against the Tennessee Titans . Like Nelson, Adams’ injury is not said to be serious. He and Jarrett Boykin are competing for playing time. Boykin could create separation the longer Adams is out.

Marvin Jones – Marvin Jones had a pin put in his fifth metatarsal of left foot. This injury will keep him out through the beginning of the season likely into week two or three. I’m not taking Jones until very late in drafts if at all. I’ll likely find guys with more upside, then look to add Jones in free agency if I have a need at receiver. With Jones gone, Mohammed Sanu is likely to get looks opposite AJ Green.

Carlos Hyde – 49ers rookie Carlos Hyde saw his first action of his NFL career on Thursday night. With Frank Gore sidelined primarily for rest, Hyde was able to run with the first team offense and show flashes of what he could be if he was thrust into the starting role. The 49ers also proved their offensive line is very talented and will be able to create holes for whomever is running behind their offensive line.

Montee Ball – Denver Broncos running back Montee Ball underwent an appendectomy last Monday. Word out of Broncos camp is that Ball should be ready for week 1. While most reports state there is nothing to worry about with Ball in regards to this procedure, back-ups CJ Anderson and Ronnie Hillman will vie for more carries come the regular season.

CJ Anderson – Thursday night Broncos running back CJ Anderson suffered a concussion against the Seattle Seahawks. Ronnie Hillman, the third back in the mix for carries, looked good and scored a touchdown. Like Ball, Anderson should be fine but its definitely worth monitoring.
