Injuries, fantasy football news and more

Andrew Luck (QB - Indianapolis Colts) threw for a little over 100 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts' win over the New York Giants Sunday night. Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton were on the receiving ends of those passes.

EJ Manuel (QB - Buffalo Bills) will be considered day to day after pre-season ends, and could start game one of the NFL season. He underwent the knife Sunday morning, and although there were signs of swelling, the procedure was considered so minor, it shouldn't impact his playing time more than these couple of weeks.

Victor Cruz (WR - New York Giants) left the game early last night for X-rays on his foot. Reports are negative for injuries and it turns out he simply had a bruised heel. No word on his return to practice.

Arian Foster (RB - Houston Texans) is still considered out of team practices with a sore back. Head coach Gary Kubiak was hoping to have his All-Pro running back back on the field by this morning, but that isn't going to happen. Injections and rest have been the order of the day for the young running back, and no time-table for his return to practice has been set.

Jamaal Charles (RB - Kansas City Chiefs) was practicing without hesitation Sunday, after sustaining a leg strain earlier this week. It was the first time Charles had this kind of foot strain, calling the injury "weird" and that "it was definitely scary" because it affected the way he runs.

That's it for me. Tonight, Steelers at the Redskins, and tomorrow, the Fantasy Football Toolkit returns. Take it easy everybody.
