Cowboys DE Jack Crawford suffered a broken thumb in Week 12 and will miss four weeks.
The backup defensive end has amassed eight tackles and two sacks across 143 defensive snaps this season. Crawford will undergo surgery on Tuesday.
The Saints declared WR Robert Meachem, RB Khiry Robinson, CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB Terrence Frederick, LB Kyle Knox, OT Nick Becton, and DL Brandon Deaderick inactive for Week 12 against the Ravens.
Meachem has an ankle injury. His absence is even better news for Kenny Stills. Robinson remains without a timetable for return from a forearm injury.
Ravens declared WR Michael Campanaro, NT Terrence Cody, LB Arthur Brown, DE DeAngelo Tyson, C Gino Gradkowski, CB Rashaan Melvin, and OT Jah Reid inactive for Week 12 against the Saints.
Campanaro has a thigh injury, while Reid is sidelined with a hand issue. The rest of the Ravens' inactives are healthy scratches.
Texans signed QB Thad Lewis.
With Ryan Mallett (pectoral) done for the season, Lewis will be the Texans' No. 3 quarterback. He may actually be active on game days if the Texans deem fourth-round rookie Tom Savage not ready for NFL action. Lewis was brutal in the preseason for the Bills after entering summer the favorite for No. 2 duties.
Cowboys S Jeff Heath will undergo thumb surgery on Tuesday.
Heath, a reserve safety and special teamer, has been good covering kicks, racking up eight tackles and playing 93 defensive snaps. The second-year UDFA out of Saginaw Valley was forced to start nine games for Dallas in 2013. Heath is expected to be back before the end of the regular season.
Jets declared RB Bilal Powell, QB Matt Simms, WR Walter Powell, CB Josh Thomas, LB I.K. Enemkpali, and OL Wesley Johnson inactive for Week 12 against the Bills.
With Powell inactive, Chris Johnson may be tasked with an uptick in passing-down touches and snaps. Powell is the Jets' best pass protector. He is down for this game due to an illness.
Chris Ivory (shoulder) is active for Week 12 against the Bills.
Ivory practiced in full this week despite being listed on the injury report. He's on the RB2 borderline for a matchup against the Bills' top-ten run defense. The Jets inactives are RB Bilal Powell, OG Dakota Dozier, LB Ikemefuna Enemkpali, OL Wesley Johnson, WR Walt Powell, QB Matt Simms, and CB Josh Thomas.
Fred Jackson is active for Monday night's game against the Jets.
He was listed as questionable with a groin injury. F-Jax's workload is unclear, but we suspect he'll end up playing the most snaps in Buffalo's backfield. The Bills' inactives are FB Frank Summers, WR Marquise Goodwin, TE MarQuies Gray, OT Cyrus Kouandjio, DL Jarius Wynn, DE Bryan Johnson, and LB Randell Johnson.
