Austin Ekeler Back On Practice Field Again Thursday

Thursday, September 28, 3:39 PM

Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler (ankle) was seen stretching with the team on Thursday after he was limited in Wednesday's practice. Ekeler will likely be listed as limited in practice again on Thursday, giving him a chance to return this Sunday against the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders after he missed Weeks 2 and 3 due to a high-ankle sprain. The 28-year-old still isn't a lock to be active on Sunday, but things are certainly trending in the right direction. Ekeler is a must-start fantasy asset when he's on the field for the Bolts. Backup Joshua Kelley failed to deliver as the starting RB for LA the last two weeks with Ekeler sidelined, and he's being dropped in a lot of fantasy leagues with Ekeler trending towards returning against Vegas.

Rashaad Penny Used Sparingly In Week 2 Victory

Friday, September 15, 9:25 AM

Philadelphia Eagles running back Rashaad Penny took three carries for nine yards and added one reception for five yards during the team's 34-28 win over the Minnesota Vikings. After being a healthy scratch last week against New England, the 27-year-old was able to make his way onto the active roster after Kenneth Gainwell (ribs) was ruled out Wednesday. However, it led to only four total touches as D'Andre Swift dominated the snap share out of the backfield to the tune of 181 total yards. Boston Scott (concussion) was given carries before Penny, and he could have taken them all if he had not exited the game early. The former Seattle Seahawk is buried on the depth chart and can safely be dropped to the waiver wire unless injuries occur ahead of him. We will have to wait and see if he will be active for the Eagles' next game against Tampa Bay.
