Packers WR Jared Abbrederis (ribs) is practicing in full for Week 13.
He'll be active for Thursday's game against the Lions, and should serve as the Packers' No. 4 receiver. With Aaron Rodgers' top three wideouts struggling to make plays, Abbrederis could get a decent amount of targets.
The Arizona Republic believes the earliest Chris Johnson (broken leg) could return is the NFC Championship Game.
That's in 54 days. It's not far fetched that the Cardinals could reach the conference title tilt, but we'd guess injured reserve is Johnson's most likely destination. Johnson is in the midst of his best season since 2012, but heading into free agency with a major injury will dent his appeal as he goes on 31.
Broncos promoted S Josh Bush from the practice squad.
The Broncos needed safety help with T.J. Ward (ankle) expected to miss Week 13. TE Richard Gordon was waived in a corresponding roster move.
Dolphins waived/injured DT C.J. Mosley.
Mosley was in a walking boot after injuring his calf on Sunday. He'll revert to injured reserve if/when he clears waivers. Playing on a one-year deal, the 11-year veteran had been active for all 11 games, but played a limited role. Mosley turns 33 before next season.
Patriots signed WR Damaris Johnson.
The ex-Eagle and Texan spent the first three months of the season on the street. He could provide help in the slot, and should immediately slide in on special teams. Even with the Pats majorly banged up at wideout, Johnson won't come into fantasy value.
Dolphins signed DT Robert Thomas.
Thomas was plucked off the Patriots' practice squad. Battling a bevy of interior line injuries, the Dolphins needed some depth.
Giants signed OG Adam Gettis.
Gettis had been on the Raiders' practice squad. The G-Men need some depth with basically their entire interior line injured.
Josh McCown has been diagnosed with a broken right collarbone, and is done for the season.
The 36-year-old quarterback does not need surgery. It's an unfortunate, if not surprising, ending to what had been a good season. Truly reckless, McCown simply can't stop getting hurt. Coach Mike Pettine has yet to decide if he'll be replaced by Austin Davis or Johnny Manziel. With the team seemingly itching to move on from Manziel, we wouldn't be surprised if Davis got the call in Week 13. Due $4.375 million, McCown will likely be back with the team in 2016, but that's a fairly steep sum for a quarterback who's proven incapable of staying on the field the past few seasons.
