All you procrastinating fantasy football owners out there, you have about an hour left to set your lineups, and you might want to consider some late-breaking NFL injury news.

Sunday morning brought with it a torrent of injury updates on high-profile players.

We’ll start with bad news for Patriots fans and Rob Gronkowski fantasy owners. Per Ian Rapoport and Adam Schefter, Gronk will not play Sunday against the Dolphins, as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

Another star who will watch from the sidelines Sunday is Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles. Charles tore his ACL last season, and Kansas City has been very careful with his rehab, afraid to rush him back. According to Schefter, Charles will debut next week.

Schefter also reported that Ravens linebacker Elvis Dumervil and Packers cornerback Sam Shields will miss their teams’ contests this week.

Now for some happier updates. Russell Wilson won’t be 100 percent Sunday when the Seahawks play the Rams, but he will be in there, per Schefter. We’ll probably see the QB stay in the pocket more than usual given his limited mobility, however.

Meanwhile in Denver, receiver Demaryius Thomas is somewhat of a gametime decision but appears likely to play through the hip injury he suffered during Week 1.

And with that, enjoy Week 2.
