Cowboys placed RB Lance Dunbar on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.
This was purely a procedural move. Dunbar underwent surgery on his left knee last week and already confirmed he would miss the rest of the season. Dunbar suffered some ligament damage in his knee in the Thanksgiving Day game against the Raiders. Joseph Randle and Phillip Tanner will back up DeMarco Murray.
Tony Gonzalez (toe) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
Gonzalez's toe injury is no longer an issue, but he's been taking Wednesdays off for precautionary reasons. He'll be just a low-end TE1 for Week 14 at Green Bay.
Patriots waived TE D.J. Williams.
Williams was signed last week. Now the Michael Hoomanawanui (knee) is back at practice, Williams is no longer needed.
Adrian Peterson (groin) is not practicing Wednesday.
Peterson didn't suffer any setbacks with his groin injury in Sunday's win and is just sitting out for rest purposes. He'll be a top-five RB1 in Week 14 against the Ravens.
Updating a previous item, Darren McFadden missed Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury.
Here we go again. Coach Dennis Allen says McFadden hurt the ankle in the Thanksgiving Day game against the Cowboys. This guy simply can't stay on the field. The Raiders and McFadden are hopeful he'll be back soon, but we're not going to hold our breath. The Raiders running back fantasy owners do care about, Rashad Jennings, returned to practice Wednesday after being concussed Thursday.
Browns placed DE Desmond Bryant (irregular heartbeat) on the reserve/non-football illness list.
Bryant has been battling heartbeat issues for the past couple seasons. In Week 5, he was forced from the game and taken to the hospital due to shortness of breath and an irregular heartbeat. Bryant didn't miss any game action, but he'll now be sidelined indefinitely. Bryant, who has 31 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 12 starts in his first season with the Browns, will undergo a "minor" procedure later this week and is fully expected to be able to resume his career.
Percy Harvin (hip) did not practice Wednesday.
Harvin underwent a hip injection last week and almost certainly won't play in Sunday's game against the 49ers. He was able to resume a running program, but hasn't been cleared to practice. The Seahawks are considering holding Harvin out for the rest of the season in order to get him ready for the playoffs.
Andre Ellington (knee) did not practice Wednesday.
"I’m fine right now. It’s a day by day thing," Ellington said. "I’ll be ready to go on Sunday." We'll see. Coach Bruce Arians said Ellington was "never close" to playing last week. The Cardinals plan to take a cautious approach with Ellington. If he does suit up, Ellington will be on the flex map against the Rams.
