The postseason rolls on beginning Saturday afternoon with the divisional round, and the injury outlook is a fairly positive one overall. One prominent running back appears back at full health and raring to go after a multi-week absence, although another notable name may be heading in the opposite direction. Additionally, there are a couple of returns from injured reserve at other positions potentially on tap. Without further ado, let's plug into the latest health-related news relevant to your postseason Fantasy lineups:
The Eagles' Carson Wentz (back) will not suit up for Sunday's Divisional Round showdown against the Saints, as expected. That once again affords Nick Foles a blank page on which to potentially pen yet another postseason classic, after he helped Philadelphia advance out of a Wild Card battle against the Bears with a last-minute, go-ahead touchdown to Golden Tate. However, he'll have an uphill battle against a Saints defense that allowed the second-fewest points per game (18.5) of any team on its home field this season.
The Rams' Todd Gurley doesn't carry an injury designation into Saturday night's clash versus the Cowboys after apparently having overcome his recent knee issues. Gurley was back up to a full practice by Thursday after opening the week with a pair of limited sessions.
