We break down fantasy implications. Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins did not practice Wednesday as his surgically repaired foot continues to ail him, reports SirusXM radios Vic Carucci. Watkins has been battling soreness in his injured foot since camp. There appears to be no structural issues with the foot, but the third-year WR was inactive for the Bills Week 3 matchup against Arizona. According to NFL Networks Mike Garafolo , Watkins plans to test out his foot at some point this week and his ability to go is only about pain tolerance at this point. Watkins status for Sundays division matchup with the New England Patriots remains unknown. Fantasy Impact: Watkins surgically repaired foot has hindered him greatly this season. Before being sidelined in Week 3, Watkins had only six receptions for 63 yards in the first two weeks of the regular season. With no way to gauge Watkins ability or pain tolerance, look for Robert Woods and Greg Salas to play bigger roles in Week 4. Reblog

“The school was safe before this case arose and it still is.” The U.S. sees only about 150 leprosy cases occur each year, and over 95 percent of the population is naturally immune to it. Despite its reputation as an incredibly infectious plague that makes sufferers shed body parts, the disease can only be passed through prolonged contact, and is fairly easily treated with antibiotics. It is not spread through short-term contact like handshakes or even sexual intercourse. Those most at risk are family members who are in constant contact with an untreated person, and by travelers to places such as India, Brazil and Angola where it’s more common. Health and school officials will say nothing about how the child contracted the disease, or about the identity of either child who was tested. “The only way to protect the two students is for nobody to know who they are,” district Superintendent Elliott Duchon told the Riverside Press-Enterprise. The school district sent an email to parents informing them of the diagnosis, and Duchon was at the school on Thursday afternoon to answer questions from concerned parents. clickbunion wedgeLeprosy remains a problem in tropical hot spots of the world with some 250,000 new infections reported each year.
