Niles Paul's concussion was his first 10-02-2014
Niles Paul WR WAS
Niles Paul said the concussion he suffered last Thursday night was the first of his career.

Washington Post
It's good news as Paul makes his way through the NFL's protocol. However, he admitted to not remembering the hit that knocked him out against the Giants, always a bad sign. Paul's on-field outlook is also complicated by the impending return of Jordan Reed (hamstring), who projects to reclaim starting duties.
Torrey leads NFL in pass interference drawn 10-02-2014
Torrey Smith WR BAL
Torrey Smith leads the NFL with five pass interference penalties drawn.

ESPN.com
Smith's miserable stats through four games (8-138-1) don't show the value he's brought to the Ravens in the form of PI penalties. It's not a fluke, as Smith led the NFL in 2012 as well by drawing 16. Of course, fantasy owners don't get points for drawn penalties and Torrey has clearly taken a backseat to Steve Smith. He'll be a boom or bust WR3 as long as he keeps running these low-percentage shot plays.
Beckham expects a limited number of plays 10-02-2014
Odell Beckham Jr. WR NYG
Odell Beckham (hamstring) said he'd be happy with a limited number of plays in Sunday's game against the Falcons.

NJ.com
Beckham went through a hard practice Wednesday and will do the same Thursday. As long as he emerges without any setbacks, coach Tom Coughlin said the No. 12 overall pick will be part of the gameplan. However, Beckham won't be startable in fantasy until his snap count gets up around the 70-75 percent mark we eventually expect.
Brandon Boykin not practicing 10-02-2014
Brandon Boykin CB PHI
Eagles slot CB Brandon Boykin (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

CSN Philly
Boykin's hamstring tweak didn't appear too severe on Sunday as he was able to come back into the game. One of the game's premier inside corners still has a shot to play against the Rams in Week 5.
Mychal Kendricks still not practicing 10-02-2014
Mychal Kendricks LB PHI
Eagles ILB Mychal Kendricks (calf) has still not resumed practicing.

Watkins: Orton reads it quicker than Manuel 10-02-2014
Sammy Watkins WR BUF
Sammy Watkins noticed that Kyle Orton "reads it quicker" and the "ball is coming out faster" with Kyle Orton.

ESPN.com
It sounds like Watkins was getting sick of E.J. Manuel's shortcomings. "The way he talked, the way he handles business, the way he looks at plays and breaks down defenses, it's kind of different than EJ," the rookie wideout said. Through four games with Manuel, Watkins was on pace for 68-788-8. Orton is a bottom-barrel NFL starter, but he can only help Sammy's box scores.
