Coach Mike McCarthy said Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) is "preparing to play" Week 15 against the Panthers.

Rodgers was medically cleared to return to the field late Tuesday night and should be under center Sunday against the Panthers. Brett Hundley had some flashes in Rodgers' absence but was more bad than good, and Rodgers' return gives the 7-6 Packers a shot to sneak into the playoffs. The schedule won't be easy, particularly starting this week in Charlotte against the Panthers.
Dec 13 - 1:23 PM

Kyle Rudolph (ankle) is in a walking boot after getting hurt late in Week 14.

Rudolph missed the final handful of plays last week against the Panthers and looks to be in jeopardy of missing Week 15 against the Bengals. Rudolph has been scoring at will of late, but his targets have been down the past few weeks. If he sits, David Morgan and Blake Bell are next up at tight end.

Broncos placed S Justin Simmons on injured reserve with an ankle injury, ending his season.

The Broncos let T.J. Ward go at the end of the preseason in order to get Simmons in the lineup as a full-time player. He has received strong marks for his run defense from Pro Football Focus and is the site's No. 34 overall safety out of 86 qualifiers. Simmons has been a problem in pass coverage.

Joe Mixon remains in the league's concussion protocol Wednesday.

Mixon was concussed nine days ago and missed Week 14. Giovani Bernard got the start in his absence and played 85.2% of the snaps while turning 17 touches into 130 scoreless yards. If he gets another start this week, it will be a tough road test against the Vikings' top-notch defense. Bernard will be a volume-dependent RB2, but expectations would need to be tempered.

Coach Jim Caldwell said he expects Ameer Abdullah (neck) to return Week 15 against the Bears.

"I do, as long as things keep trending in the right direction," Caldwell said. The Lions and Bears kick off the early Saturday game at 4:30 ET. Abdullah's return will make none of the Lions' running backs attractive fantasy plays.
Dec 13 - 10:56 AM

Jaguars WLB Telvin Smith has cleared the league's concussion protocol.

Smith missed the last two games after a setback. He should be ready to return this Sunday against Houston. The Texans' implied team total of 14 points is the lowest of Week 15. Continue to ride the Jaguars' D/ST.
Dec 13 - 10:54 AM

Allen Hurns (ankle) remains sidelined at practice Wednesday.

Hurns has been out since Week 10. In his absence, Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole have emerged as solid second and third wideouts behind Marqise Lee.
Dec 13 - 10:51 AM

Zach Ertz has cleared the league's concussion protocol and will practice Wednesday.

Ertz was said to be making steady progress late last week but was still dealing with headaches over the weekend and had to sit out the Week 14 thriller against the Rams. Trey Burton had a huge game in Ertz's absence but will be sent back to backup duties with Ertz healthy. Ertz will remain a TE1, even in the absence of Carson Wentz (knee). He gets a date against the Giants next.
