Miles Sanders (hip) logs full practice Thursday for Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders was a full participant in practice on Thursday.

What It Means:

After a limited session Wednesday afternoon due to a hip ailment, the fourth-year back was able to bounce back with a full one just one day later. That would most certainly line him up for a full workload in Sunady's game against the Jaguars.

Our models project Sanders for 65.2 rushing yards, 11.3 receiving yards, 0.5 total touchdowns and 11.4 FanDuel points.

AJ Dillon (knee) upgraded to full Thursday for Green Bay

Green Bay Packers running back A.J. Dillon was a full participant at practice on Thursday.

What It Means:

Dillon was limited Wednesday afternoon due to a knee injury. However, it appears that was a minor ailment, as he was instantly upgraded to a full session the next day. The third-year back out of Boston College has had two mediocre games in a row, and hopefully he'll have a chance to bounce back Sunday against the Patriots.

Our models project Dillon for 61.7 rushing yards, 18.3 receiving yards, 0.4 total touchdowns and 11.7 FanDuel points.

Update: Tua Tagovailoa (head, neck) will not return in Week 4 for Miami

Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has been ruled out for the rest of Week 4 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

What It Means:

Tagovailoa hit his head very hard on the ground when taking a sack in the second quarter, prompting a neurological response that locked his arms off. Taking all precautions possible, trainers stabilized his neck and carted him off on a stretcher. It didn't take long for the team to rule him out for the reminder of the game, as Tagovailoa is headed to the hospital for an examination of "head and neck" injuries. Teddy Bridgewater will take over at quarterback.

Before exiting, Tagovailoa was 8-of-14 passing for 110 yards and an interception, posting 3.4 FanDuel points.

J.K. Dobbins (chest) a full participant in practice Thursday

Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins was a full participant in practice Thursday afternoon.

Keep an eye out for a larger role for the third-year back.

Our models currently project Dobbins for 49.4 rushing yards, 12.7 receiving yards, 0.5 total touchdowns and 9.7 FanDuel points.

Before exiting, Tagovailoa was 8-of-14 passing for 110 yards and an interception, posting 3.4 FanDuel points.
