Carson Palmer remained limited in Thursday's practice, and "didn't throw as much" as the other quarterbacks in the portion of practice open to the media.
Andre Ellington (knee) returned to Cardinals practice Thursday.
Ellington will undoubtedly be listed as limited, but it gives him a chance of returning for Week 14. Ellington has insisted he'll be ready to go against the Rams, but what he's able to do on Friday will be key. Owners penciling in Ellington as their FLEX play need to continue monitoring his status.
Michael Floyd (shoulder, ankle) returned to Cardinals practice Thursday.
Floyd should officially be listed as "limited," but barring a setback, he'll be ready for his usual role against the Rams. Fantasy's No. 3 receiver over the past three weeks, Floyd has barged onto the WR2 scene.
Jordan Reed (concussion) returned to Redskins practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.
It puts Reed on track to get cleared for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, but he's obviously not out of the woods after he was surprisingly scratched in Week 13. Owners can pencil Reed into their lineups for the first week of the fantasy playoffs, but have to have a back-up plan ready. The good news is, Washington takes on the Chiefs at 1PM ET, so we'll know Reed's status Sunday morning.
Jets coach Rex Ryan expects Santonio Holmes (hamstring) to be active for Sunday's game.
Holmes was limited to just three snaps in last week's loss to the Dolphins, but sounds ready for a bigger role against the Raiders. At far less than 100 percent with Geno Smith under center, Holmes is not a desirable fantasy option.
Jeremy Kerley (elbow) looked "outstanding" in Thursday's practice, and is expected to return for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
The same is true of Santonio Holmes. Kerley last played in Week 9. His return is undoubtedly a boost for the Jets' tattered offense, but isn't going to make that much a of a difference in the grand scheme of things. Geno Smith is playing that poorly. Kerley can't be trusted as more than a WR5.
The Giants are "hopeful" Brandon Jacobs (knee) can resume practicing on Friday.
The "hope" comes from coach Tom Coughlin. Even if Jacobs suits up Friday, he'll be no better than 50-50 to play against the Chargers. Our guess is that Peyton Hillis will back up Andre Brown in San Diego. Jacobs' status will be updated on Friday.
Brandon Myers (groin) is expected to practice on Friday after missing Thursday's session.
Myers was limited to exercise-bike duties on Thursday, but it sounds like his injury is minor. The mid-range TE2 should be good to go against the Chargers.
