Washington was expected to be missing at least one of its main wide receivers today, and that will indeed be the case. But another key starter who's expected to sit is Chris Thompson, shaking up the backfield.

Thompson is dealing with rib and knee injuries, banged-up in the Monday night game against the Saints. Him being out would probably mean more snaps for Adrian Peterson, though Peterson is also hurt (ankle, knee and shoulder). And he's not really the same kind of back, so more likely they plug another third-down type of ballcarrier into the Thompson role: Kapri Bibbs.

Bibbs, out of Colorado State, was with the Broncos at the start of his career, getting some work a couple of years ago (including a 69-yard touchdown reception at Oakland). He then scored against the Saints. If you're in a bind at running back in a PPR league -- maybe you were planning on using Thompson -- Bibbs might be the best available option on the waiver wire.

As for the wideouts, Jamison Crowder probably won't play. Paul Richardson is being called a gametime decision. It should be Josh Doctson and Maurice Harris in two of three spots, with probably Brian Quick and/or Vernon Davis picking up chances if both the wideouts are inactive.

Other Sunday morning news:

  • Deshaun Watson (chest) will start.

  • A couple of banged-up tight ends, Greg Olsen (foot) and O.J. Howard (knee) are expected to play.

  • Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) might not play for Miami. Brock Osweiler would start, making the Bears defense look even better than really, really great.

  • All of New England's questionable players (Michel, Gronkowski, Hogan, Gordon) are expected to play.

  • Isaiah Crowell (ankle) is expected to play for the Jets.

  • Dalvin Cook (hamstring) is expected to play for Minnesota, but on a snap count. So, is he healthy enough to play, or what? Risky to use Cook.

  • People reporting non-update updates on guys like LeSean McCoy and LeVeon Bell. McCoy might not be traded, Bell might not report. Useless information.
