NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) doesn't have any more scans scheduled this week, meaning he's unlikely to gain clearance to face the Falcons.
The Packers have already said that Rodgers won't play without clearance from a doctor, and that would be impossible to get without a new scan. It's worth noting that it was Rapoport who reported the Pack had discussed shutting Rodgers down, a report shot down by the Packers and refuted by FOX's Jay Glazer. Either way, it's looking like it would take a miracle for Rodgers to be active for Week 14.
Bears WLB Lance Briggs (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 14.
Per coach Marc Trestman, Briggs will be re-evaluated "early next week." Briggs is officially behind schedule, as he was given a 4-6 week timetable upon going down in Week 7. For the sake of Chicago's run defense, Briggs can't return soon enough.
Carson Palmer says his elbow injury affected his play in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.
Palmer has been extremely limited in this week's practices, attempting only "soft throws" in Thursday's session. It's certainly a concern heading into Sunday's game against the Rams, but for now, Palmer appears likely to start. What he's able to do on Friday will be key.
Demaryius Thomas (shoulder) remained limited in Thursday's practice.
Thomas is fully expected to start Sunday's game against the Titans. He's locked and loaded as a high-end WR1 for Week 14.
Lions CB Darius Slay was listed as "limited" after suffering a knee injury in Thursday's practice.
The severity is unknown, but the Lions' official website saw fit to report on Slay's status. It's a sign Slay could be dealing with more than just a tweak. The second-round rookie had his best game of the season in Detroit's Thanksgiving victory over the Packers, playing all 43 snaps.
Tony Gonzalez (toe) was limited in Thursday's practice.
Gonzalez isn't getting in much practice time, but continues to play through his toe injury without issue. He's a mid-range TE1 for Week 14.
Le'Veon Bell (concussion) remained "full" in Thursday's practice, and says he's "fine" for Week 14.
Barring a setback, Bell is locked and loaded for Week 14. He'll be squaring off with a Dolphins defense allowing the seventh most fantasy points to running backs. Locked into an every-down role and leading all running backs in receiving over the past five weeks, Bell is in the RB1 conversation for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.
Jay Cutler (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 14 against the Cowboys.
Cutler returned to practice on Thursday, but it was with an eye toward potentially returning in Week 15. Coach Marc Trestman "absolutely" expects Cutler to play again this season. As it is, Josh McCown will get the start against the Cowboys' sub-par pass defense, and is locked in as a QB1 for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.
