Broncos FS Rahim Moore (lateral compartment syndrome) said he expects to be medically cleared in January.
Moore is currently on short-term injured reserve and will miss the entire regular season, but is on track to return for the playoffs. He hasn't had any setbacks in his recovery from lower leg surgery and was cleared to resume weight training this week. An every-down player before getting hurt, Moore should immediately regain his starting role from Mike Adams when healthy. He had 44 tackles and two interceptions in 10 games prior to going down.
Coach Pete Carroll said Percy Harvin (hip) remains day to day.
Harvin is dealing with continued soreness in his surgically repaired hip. It's uncertain if he'll even be able to practice on Wednesday. Harvin won't be a fantasy option against the Giants in Week 15.
Aaron Rodgers will be evaluated by team physician Dr. Pat McKenzie on Wednesday.
Rodgers will work out on Tuesday and is scheduled to do more than he did last week during a similar session. Then he'll sleep on it and be examined by the medical staff Wednesday. In between there, Rodgers will do his weekly radio show so perhaps we'll get some clues then. For now, he's simply questionable for Sunday's finger-licking matchup against the Cowboys.
Jacob Tamme played on 45-of-46 snaps following Wes Welker's Week 14 concussion.
Not only did Tamme move into an every-down role, but he moved into an every-down slot role. We all know that's a massive job in a Peyton Manning offense, one that yielded a 4/47/0 line on five targets for Tamme in barely more than two quarters of playing time against the Titans. Rob Gronkowski owners seeking upside can make a plug-n-play ahead of Thursday's potential shootout with the Chargers. Welker is extremely doubtful.
Dolphins signed S Michael Thomas off the 49ers' practice squad.
A 2012 undrafted rookie out of Stanford, Thomas spent the last two seasons on his college coach's practice squad. He slides in as depth for a Miami team in the hunt for a Wild Card berth.
Michael Crabtree played on 61-of-69 snaps in Sunday's win over the Seahawks.
So far, Crabtree's return from his Achilles' tear has been seamless. He's quickly gone from 62.6 percent of the snaps in Week 13 to 88.4 in Week 14 (when he saw eight targets). Crabtree will just be a WR4 when he faces Darrelle Revis Sunday, but the real payoff for owners will come in Week 16 when the Niners host the Falcons.
Impending free agent Ben Tate said he "can't answer" when asked if he wants to be back with the Texans next season.
Like most free agents, Tate will be seeking maximum money and playing time. It's unlikely the Texans will lead the way in either of those categories once March hits. Tate will play out these final three games highly motivated to put good work on tape as he continues to run as the feature back. He'll be a RB2 against the Colts' No. 29 run defense Sunday.
The Giants have not yet decided whether to shut down Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) for the season.
With the Giants officially eliminated from playoff contention, getting Pierre-Paul some rest would make a ton of sense. Coming off back surgery, he was a shell of himself and then things got even worse after he injured his right shoulder against the Raiders in Week 10. By sitting JPP down, the Giants could also give rookie Damontre Moore some much-needed reps.
