Keenan Allen (shoulder) practiced in full Monday.
The Chargers conducted a walkthrough -- they didn't actually practice -- but it's still good news. Allen will be fine for Thursday night's game against the Broncos after he sprained his shoulder Sunday against the Giants.
Eddie Royal (toe) did not practice Monday.
This is just an estimation, as the Chargers simply conducted a walkthrough. Royal will play through his toe issue Thursday night against the Broncos.
Coach Jeff Fisher says Tavon Austin (ankle) is day-to-day.
Austin got his ankle pinned underneath him at the end of a 56-yard run on an end-around Sunday against the Cardinals. He attempted to return to field a punt but headed back to the sideline after the play to ice up his ankle. The No. 8 overall pick never returned, though he appears to have avoided a serious injury. Austin isn't worth owning in re-draft leagues for the playoffs.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports Rashad Jennings has passed his concussion test.
That's all beat writer Vic Tafur tweeted regarding Jennings. It's positive news, though, after Jennings was unable to suit up Sunday. He traveled with the Raiders to New York to face the Jets, but Jennings couldn't progress quickly enough through the NFL's concussion protocol in order to play. Jennings should practice in full this week and be ready to start against the Chiefs next Sunday at home. He'll be a mid-to-low RB2 and put Marcel Reece's volume back in question.
Bills coach Doug Marrone wants to get Marquise Goodwin more involved in the offense for the final three games of the season.
"I think Marquise Goodwin — and I talked to (OC Nathaniel) Hackett about this — I think we have to get him in there more," Marrone said. Marrone said the same is true of T.J. Graham, but that Graham needs to "work on becoming more consistent." Sitting at 4-9 with one of the league's youngest offenses, the Bills should be in full-on evaluation mode for Weeks 15-17. Goodwin is worth a gander as a boom-or-bust WR4/5.
Raiders DT Vance Walker suffered a concussion in Oakland's Week 14 loss to the Jets.
Speaking Monday, coach Dennis Allen hinted Walker's concussion was severe. Playing on a one-year deal, Walker has been a solid run plugger along the Raiders' defensive line, playing 677 snaps. He should be considered week to week, but it sounds like there's a chance he ends up on injured reserve.
The Union-Tribune San Diego fully expects Keenan Allen (shoulder) to be ready for Week 15.
Chargers coach Mike McCoy said "we're very healthy right now" in Monday's presser, and emphasized that the team escaped Sunday's win without any serious issues. Allen played through the issue against the G-Men, and said he was prepared to do so for the rest of the season. He'll remain a high-end WR2 for Week 15 against the Broncos.
Patriots placed TE Rob Gronkowski on injured reserve with a torn right ACL and MCL, ending his season.
TE D.J. Williams has been re-signed in a corresponding roster move. Gronk also suffered a concussion on the hit that tore up his knee, sending him into the offseason in exceedingly rough shape. The serious injury is just the latest for a player who's undergone five surgeries in the past 13 months, and missed his entire junior year of college after undergoing a back operation. Gronk is still only 24, but it's fair to wonder if he can overcome yet another major injury to remain the historically dominant tight end he's been through the first four years of his career. You can compensate for only so many ailments. Gronk should be considered highly questionable for Week 1 2014. His $3.75 million base salary is fully guaranteed.
