Robert Turbin (shoulder) is probable for Sunday's game against Carolina.

Impact

Turbin has practiced all week, including two full practices to finish up the week, so he's at or near full strength for his usual off-the-bench role behind workhorse Marshawn Lynch.

Calais Campbell (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against Philadelphia.

Impact

Campbell logged two limited practices to close out the week, giving hope that he might return from his MCL injury in what could be a profitable matchup with a run-heavy, fast-paced Philadelphia offense. Still, even if he's active Sunday, Campbell probably won't see a full workload in his initial return.

John Brown (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against Philadelphia.

Impact

Brown's health isn't a major issue since he practiced all week, including a full practice Friday. Although he lacks the build of a prototypical outside wideout, his owners should hope he avoids Philadelphia slot corner Brandon Boykin and instead faces off against the likes of Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher on Sunday. In any case, Brown is little more than a deep league consideration at the moment, as he's averaging just 6.0 yards per target so far this year.

Brian Cushing (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans, the Texans' official site reports.

Impact

Cushing slots in as a game-day call, and even if he does play Sunday, it's possible that he will be limited, per the Houston Chronicle.

Eric Weddle had nine tackle (seven solo) and forced a fumble in Thursday night's loss at Denver.

Impact

Weddle also had an interception which was nullified by a suspect defensive holding call. He continues to be one of the leaders of the defense in San Diego and does not look like he is slowing down any time soon.

Andre Johnson (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against the Titans, the Texans' official site reports.

Impact

Johnson, who practiced fully Friday, figures to see his share of looks once again in Week 8, having combined for 21 targets over his last two outings.

Ladarius Green had one reception on one target for nine yards in Thursday night's loss at Denver.

Impact

In a very crowded San Diego offense, Green has yet to carve out a consistent space for himself on a weekly basis. Outside of two four-catch performances in Weeks 3 and 5, Green has basically been a non-factor this season.

Justin Tuck (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Impact

Tuck's ability to practice all week, albeit in a limited capacity, suggests a Week 8 return from the knee injury is realistic. The 31-year-old has recorded just one sack in five games, however, after notching 11 in his final year with the Giants.

Luke Willson (groin) is probable for Sunday's game against Carolina.

Impact

Willson saw third-string tight end Cooper Helfet have a nice game against St. Louis while Willson sat, but Willson should get a chance to take the lead once again while incumbent starter Zach Miller (ankle) sits. Willson is a relatively rare size/speed specimen who's worth monitoring, especially in deeper formats.

Byron Maxwell (calf) is out for Sunday's game against Carolina.

Impact

Maxwell was aiming to return to practice this week, but he wasn't quite able to make it. Hopefully his goal of returning to practice this week forecasts an ability to get back on the field following Sunday's game.

Toby Gerhart (foot) practiced fully Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, the Jaguars' official site reports.

Impact

Gerhart is thus poised to return to action after missing the last two games, though Denard Robinson is expected to remain the team's lead back Sunday. Those digging deep should be aware that coach Gus Bradley indicated that Gerhart will likely see more Week 8 reps than Storm Johnson, but a wait-and-see approach is in order with Gerhart in most cases.

Tharold Simon (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against Carolina.

Impact

Simon is an athletically talented corner in the big-build mold the Seahawks look for, so he could be a useful component of the Seattle defense if he stays healthy going forward.

Marshawn Lynch (non-injury) is probable for Sunday's game against Carolina.

Impact

Lynch has had two disappointing games in a row, but his health is not an issue and he's a prime bounce-back candidate as he takes on a Carolina defense allowing a league-worst 5.3 yards per carry.

Brandon Gibson (hamstring) is not listed on the Dolphins' injury report for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, the ESPN.com reports.

Impact

Having been overtaken on the Dolphins' wideout depth chart by Jarvis Landry, however, Gibson is a break or two away from fantasy reliability.

David Ausberry (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Impact

As expected, Ausberry will sit after hurting his foot in Week 7, an injury which interim coach Tony Sparano said "could be serious." The door is thus open for Mychal Rivera and perhaps Brian Leonhardt to play additional snaps in the weeks ahead.

Eddie Royal had three catches on three targets for 29 yards in Thursday night's loss at Denver.

Impact

The pecking order in San Diego is fairly clear and consistent with Keenan Allen and Malcom Floyd serving as the wide receivers who always receive the most targets and Antonio Gates getting his fair share of looks from the tight end position. The Bolts also like to throw to their running backs a fair amount, so there typically isn't too much left for Royal after all is said and done. Since a spectacular Week 4 performance, Royal has averaged just two catches on three targets over the past four games.

Kam Chancellor (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against Carolina.

Impact

Chancellor is evidently close to full health after logging two full practices to close out the week, making him a justifiable DB1 consideration in most formats. He has 44 tackles in eight games.

Charles Clay (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, the Dolphins' official site reports.

Impact

Clay will be out there if you need him Sunday, drawing a favorable matchup on the heels a Week 7 effort against Chicago that saw him catch four passes (on five targets) for a season-high 58 yards and a TD.

Vincent Brown (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Impact

A limited participant both Wednesday and Thursday, Brown was unable to take the practice field Friday, suggesting the hamstring did not responded especially well throughout the week. Brown is now set to miss a third straight game as a result of the injury, leaving Brice Butler, Denarius Moore and Kenbrell Thompkins to compete for looks behind James Jones and Andre Holmes.

Jonathan Casillas (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota, FOX Sports 1's Jenna Laine reports.

Impact

Casillas was a limited practice participant all week, so he should have a decent chance of suiting up. Even if he does, though, he's unlikely to be more than a rotational linebacker.
