Panthers MLB Luke Kuechly (concussion) still isn't practicing.
Kuechly won't play this week and remains out indefinitely. The Panthers are going to have a tough time guarding Jimmy Graham on Sunday Night Football.
The Patriots will host Rams rookie QB Jared Goff in Week 13, who has completed just 58.7 percent of his pass attempts in two starts.
The Rams own the NFL's worst offense, checking-in 32nd in scoring and total yardage through 12 weeks. Los Angeles has been held to 10 or fewer points in six of 11 games this season and will struggle to find success on the road as nearly two-touchdown underdogs. The Patriots D/ST turned in two mediocre performances as large road favorites in recent weeks, but should be a top-tier fantasy option upon returning home to face the Rams.
49ers WR Quinton Patton (concussion) is questionable for Week 13 against the Bears.
Patton returned to practice on Thursday but has not officially passed the concussion protocol. There's a high likelihood of him playing this week, but he won't be a fantasy option if he does.
Kelvin Benjamin (shoulder) practiced again on Friday.
He'll be all systems go for Sunday night's game in Seattle.
Dolphins CB Xavien Howard (knee) is doubtful for Week 13 against the Ravens.
There was some hope earlier this week that Howard would return to action on Sunday but DC Vance Joseph said he's still a week or two away. Tony Lippett and Byron Maxwell will continue to start at cornerback for the Dolphins.
Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (hip) has been ruled out for Week 13.
He remains "week to week" The Dolphins are getting back Branden Albert and Laremy Tunsil at Baltimore, but Anthony Steen will continue to start at center.
The Buffalo Bills will rely on rookie CB Kevon Seymour to fill-in for CB Ronald Darby (concussion) in Week 13.
"It's a big step," Seymour said. "Big responsibility, filling in for Darby and being that corner the team is relying on. I'm excited for it." It will be a downgrade for Buffalo's eighth-ranked pass defense, a group that has allowed just two 300 yard passing performances this season. The Bills D/ST will be a mid-range fantasy option on the road against the Raiders, who have allowed the fewest sacks in the NFL.
Despite returning to practice Friday, Mark Ingram (toe) was noncommittal when asked about his Week 13 availability.
"We'll see," said Ingram, adding that his Wednesday and Thursday absences from practice were due to "soreness" in the toe. Ingram said the toe "felt good" during Friday's practice. Still, it's conceivable his role is scaled back a bit on Sunday, with Tim Hightower shouldering more of the load. Reports on Ingram's toe will be worth monitoring closely into Sunday morning.
