Mahomes stayed down on the field for quite some time after picking up a first down on fourth-and-short in the second quarter. He put an arm around each trainer as he made his way off the field. Mahomes, who entered the game with a sore ankle, then slowly made his way into the locker room.

|10/16/2019||Todd Gurley II, LAR, RB|
|Gurley (quad) was limited in practice after missing last week's game.
Analysis: A struggling Rams offense desperately needs its cornerstone weapon back, but it could come down to a game-time decision.
|10/16/2019||Alvin Kamara, NO, RB|
|Kamara (knee, ankle) won't practice this week and all signs point to him missing Sunday's game against the Bears.
Analysis: If Kamara can't go, Latavius Murray becomes a tremendously valuable pickup.
|10/16/2019||David Johnson, Ari, RB|
|Johnson returned to practice Thursday after missing Wednesday's session with an ankle injury.
Analysis: Johnson should be out there when the Cardinals visit the Giants this Sunday, and he should be a no-brainer fantasy start if he is active. The versatile running back had two touchdowns against the Falcons last week and is averaging over 100 yards from scrimmage through Arizona's first six games.

|Ryan Fitzpatrick will return as the 0-5 Dolphins' starting quarterback Sunday at Buffalo.

The Browns have a bye this week, giving Mayfield time to recover before Cleveland visits New England on Oct. 27. Mayfield has struggled in his second season. He leads the NFL with 11 interceptions - the most in six games by a Browns quarterback since 1984.

|10/14/2019||Geronimo Allison, GB, WR|
|Allison was forced out of Monday's game against the Lions late in the second quarter with a concussion and chest injury.
Analysis: Allison had been very active prior to departing, receiving seven targets and catching three of them for 40 yards with Green Bay's top receiver, Davante Adams, inactive. Allison should be considered iffy to play next week against the Raiders, which would leave the Packers quite thin at wide receiver if Adams can't return.

|Leonard is expected to return for Sunday's key AFC South matchup with the Texans after missing the last three games due to a concussion.
Analysis: Leonard led the NFL with 163 tackles as a rookie in 2018 and racked up 18 in the first two games this season.
