Fantasy Football injuries: Cooper Kupp, Clyde Edwards-Helaire and more status updates for key players

We’re down to the final eight teams this weekend, with the divisional round featuring four intriguing matchups. The health outlook is mostly optimistic, although the running back and receiver positions do have some prominent names carrying some injury designations. Without further ado, let’s dive into the latest information available on the walking wounded as of Saturday morning..

Quarterbacks

The Saints’ Taysom Hill (knee) is questionable for Sunday evening’s divisional-round contest against the Buccaneers after only managing a limited Friday practice this week. Hill apparently sustained the injury in last Sunday’s wild-card win over the Bears, and if he’s unable to suit up Sunday, Jameis Winston will continue to serve as Drew Brees’ backup, while Hill’s versatility will be missing from New Orleans’ ground and air attacks. 

The Rams’ John Wolford (neck) is out for Saturday’s divisional-round game against the Packers after missing practice all week. Wolford suffered his injury on

Ole Miss ended its thrilling overtime matchup with Auburn on Saturday in dramatic fashion as guard Devontae Shuler stepped up to save the day. Shuler, who finished with 26 points, shot a fadeaway jumper that found nothing but net as time expired to lift the Rebels to an 86-84 win.

Shuler’s walk-off winner ended a frenzied final minute that saw Auburn star Sharife Cooper drill a game-tying 3-pointer the possession before. He marched the ball up the court, called for a screen, and sunk his shot with Cooper draped over him.

At the end of regulation, it was Shuler who Ole Miss went to as he took the team’s final shot and missed it. But in overtime, he assisted or scored on six of the team’s 14 points, and came up clutch when he was given a second opportunity to win it.

Pierre Cardin, fashion’s savvy futurist

Pierre Cardin, who died Tuesday aged 98, was a man of many paradoxes — a designer who sought flamboyant yet simple styles, an aesthete with a head for business, and a futurist now associated with retro.

He rose to the pantheon of France’s post-war fashion giants only to shake it all up by leading what was in the 1950s a revolutionary concept — designing “ready-to-wear” collections for the high street.
