Situations To Watch :

  • Darius Leonard has missed the last two games due to a concussion he suffered against the Tennessee Titans in Week Two. Monitor his practice participation throughout the week as he works to clear the league’s concussion protocol. If Leonard were to be absent again, Anthony Walker would vault into the top 30 after another solid outing in Week Four.
  • Roquan Smith was a surprise inactive for the Chicago Bears on Sunday. At the moment, Smith is considered out indefinitely as the team says he is dealing with a personal issue. Nick Kwiatkoski is the linebacker to grab should Smith miss considerable time. Kwiatkoski only played 55% of the snaps in Week Four, but produced an impressive stat line of 10 total tackles (9 solo), two tackles for loss, one sack, and a forced fumble.
  • Rookie, Devin White, has missed the past two weeks after suffering a MCL sprain early in his Week Two contest. Watch his practice participation as the week progresses. Veteran, Kevin Minter, would draw another start in White’s absence.
  • After suffering a groin injury in the season opener, C.J. Mosley missed the next two games and is still not ready to return to practice, according to head coach, Adam Gase. Mosley is currently ranked, but watch his situation closely as more information is released. If Mosley were to be out, Neville Hewitt would be the man in the middle and rookie Blake Cashman has filled in admirably with his added snaps.
