Downs has quietly been one of the most reliable flex starters in the league over the past few weeks, so landing on the injury report is definitely something to monitor moving forward. It’s worth mentioning that Downs was not on the team’s injury report on Wednesday, which suggests that the injury is a new one for Downs heading into their Week 9 clash with the Panthers. Given that the situation is relatively new, there’s no reason to panic just yet about Downs missing any time, but if he doesn’t participate in some capacity at today’s practice, fantasy managers should be prepared for life without him this weekend. If he would end up being good to go, Downs would profile as a mid-low WR3 in a relatively tough matchup against Carolina.
