Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler, who missed last week due a strained hamstring got in a limited session with individual drills on Wednesday. WR Alshon Jeffery was also able to get in a limited practice despite his hamstring injury. (Source: Adam Jahns on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: If Cutler can play on Sunday it will give the Bears a huge chance to pick up their first win of the season after dropping their first three games against NFC contenders Green Bay, Arizona and Seattle. Right now it appears Cutler could be on track to suit up, but nothing is for sure. However, whoever starts at QB for the Bears this week will likely be without LT Jermon Bushrod, who missed Wednesday due to a concussion.

Fantasy Impact: The extent of the injury isn’t known, but it’s certainly concerning for owners of the QB. This could wind up being nothing more than general soreness, but you’ll want to keep an eye on his practice status through the week. Luck and the Colts have a very favorable matchup in Week 4 against he Jaguars.
Marshawn Lynch is dealing with a hamstring injury that has him at “50-50” for suiting up Sunday, according to Adam Schefter. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: This will certainly be a situation to monitor, checking practice reports later in the week to determine whether or not Lynch will be good to go. He could wind up a game-time decision. If he doesn’t go, Thomas Rawls would be a nice sleeper candidate coming off a strong performance against the Bears.
Early reports indicate that LeSean McCoy will not play in Week 4 against the New York Giants as he continues to deal with a hamstring injury. (Source: Rand Getlin on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: If the concerns weren’t already there before, they should be there now. LeSean McCoy hasn’t been 100% from the start of the season and Karlos Williams has been playing well in his limited snaps. Williams is a must own handcuff for McCoy owners and has a chance to earn a bigger role if he continues to run with success.
