Joe Gibbs Racing | Denny Hamlin won't race this weekend

Joe Gibbs Racing driver Denny Hamlin (back) will not return to the Sprint Cup Series this weekend at Richmond International Raceway. He has missed the last three races with a compression fracture in his lower back. Hamlin likely will start next weekend's race at Talladega Superspeedway, though. However, he'll give way to a backup driver after the first caution to allow him to collect points.

Fantasy Tip: If you had Hamlin in your lineup for this weekend already, remove him now. It's probably not wise to count on him for a race until after he's come back and demonstrated that he's completely healthy and capable of staying in a race car for an entire race.
