Khalil Mack (ankle) active for Bears versus Patriots

Chicago Bears linebacker Khalil Mack (ankle) is active for Week 7 versus the New England Patriots.

What It Means:

Even at less than 100 percent, Mack is better than most and should be able to take advantage of a Patriots offensive line that will be without its starting right tackle, Marcus Cannon (concussion).

numberFire's models currently Mack for 4.0 tackles, 0.6 sacks, and 0.3 pass deflections versus the Patriots. The Bears D/ST is 20th in numberFire's Week 7 fantasy rankings.

DeVante Parker inactive in Week 7 for Miami

Miami Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker will not play in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions.

What It Means:

Parker has been a full participant in practice all week, so the absence is not injury related. With rumors circulating regarding his availability on the trade block, Parker can be considered a healthy scratch.

In sparse snaps across some of two games, Parker has just two catches for 40 yards.

Carlos Hyde inactive for Jacksonville in Week 7

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Carlos Hyde will not play in Week 7 against the Houston Texans.

What It Means:

Hyde wasn't expected to play after being traded down south just two days ago, as he hasn't gotten an ample amount of time to learn the playbook.

Our models project Hyde for 201.97 rushing yards, 85.50 receiving yards, and 1.90 touchdowns going forward.

Joey Bosa (foot) expected to make season debut in Week 9 for Los Angeles

Los Angeles Chargers defensive lineman Joey Bosa could make his return to the team in Week 9 against the Seattle Seahawks.

What It Means:

The timing would make sense, as the Chargers are on a bye week during Week 8. The superstar pass-rusher has been held out since suffering the injury during preseason, and he's a vital part of the defense.

Our models currently project Bosa for 20.78 tackles, 1.80 sacks, and 0.68 forced fumbles going forward this season.

Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul was ejected in the fourth quarter of a 124-115 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday night.

What It Means:

Brandon Ingram ejected for throwing punch in Lakers' loss

Los Angeles Lakers small forward Brandon Ingram was ejected for throwing a punch in the second half of a 124-115 loss to the Houston Rockets on Saturday.

What It Means:

Ingram shoved James Harden out of frustration late in the fourth quarter, which instigated a fight between Chris Paul and Rajon Rondo. Ingram then inserted himself in the confrontation and threw punches. He is looking at a multi-game suspension.

Ingram scored 12 points (5-of-8 field goals, 2-of-2 free throws) with 4 rebounds, 1 steal, 1 block, and 3 turnovers in 28.9 minutes on Saturday, finishing with 19.8 FanDuel points. He's averaging 26.6 FanDuel points through two games.

Carlos Hyde could make Jacksonville debut in Week 7

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Carlos Hyde has a chance to play in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns.

What It Means:

Hyde was traded just two days ago, and while it was originally thought to be unlikely he could grasp the playbook that quick. But it seems that he could be available, and if he suits up, he'd eat into TJ Yeldon's workload.

So far this season, Hyde has 382 rushing yards, 29 receiving yards, and five touchdowns.
