Tyler Higbee (hand) is questionable for Week 8 against the Dolphins. "He's participated," coach Sean McVay said about Higbee's status in practice. "I’d say limited in terms of – he took part in everything that we did practice wise today, but it's a limited practice anyways on a Friday.” It sounds like Higbee is trending towards being active, but that hasn't mattered in the past; he's still averaging the 16th-most fantasy points per game at his position as a non-factor. Gerald Everett's status as a fringe starter boils down to Higbee's availability on Sunday.

DeVante Parker (groin) remained "limited" on Thursday. We haven't seen any indication this is serious, but it is a new ailment for Parker coming off the Dolphins' bye week. That's never something you like to see, especially since Parker has already been playing at less than 100 percent. Parker is shaping up as a boom/bust WR3 for Week 8 against Jalen Ramsey and the Rams as Tua Tagovailoa makes his first NFL start.
