Lots of injury talk for fantasy football Week 2 as already many lineup are in flux.  Let's get to all the latest:

-Already with QB Aaron Rodgers not practicing this week and look quite iffy for Week 2, top wideout Davante Adams has been limited with soreness in his shoulder. Adams did say he felt "great" on Thursday which speaks to the likelihood he will be able to give it a go.  Still, if Rodgers were to miss the game, Adams would drop to WR 2/3 status.

-It didn't take long for New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead to get hurt as the oft-injured speedster is in serious jeopardy of missing Week 2 due to a concussion.  This is par for the course for Burkhead who has been an intriguing running/receiving talent but he can't ever seem to be able to hold up to NFL pounding. 

On the flip side, top rookie back Sony Michel got in a limited practice on Thursday but he may not be able to get enough reps to be a go himself in Week 2.  That means James White all of a sudden becomes a major RB 2 asset if both Michel and Burkhead can't go. 

-Tennessee Titans wideout Corey Davis is dealing with some hamstring soreness that kept him from putting in a full practice on Thursday but he claimed he was good to go for Sunday versus the Houston Texans.  Davis finally looked like a potent wideout in Week 1 as he drew a high amount of targets from QB Marcus Mariota and the latter should be good to go himself as his thumb injury from Week 1 is healed enough for him to go out there. 

-Texans wideout DeAndre Hopkins was limited again Thursday with an injured foot but there are zero indications that he won't be able to go.  As a result, Hopkins will once again be the second wideout in all of fantasy football behind only Antonio Brown. 

-Marlon Mack continues to be plagued by the hamstring he injured in the preseason and he is iffy at bets to go in Week 2 because of it.  Even if Mack were to go, Nyhiem Hines and Jordan Wilkins will both be involved which keeps each as a RB 3/4. 

-Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is now dealing with an elbow injury after a concussion issue plagued him during the summer.  Big Ben doesn't seem at risk to be a no-go Sunday but his availability at practice tomorrow should tell more the story of what will take place with the veteran.
