LaGarrette Blount (shoulder) rushed 10 times for 62 yards Week 17 against the Bills.
The Patriots rested most of their starters, but Blount was featured all the way into the fourth quarter despite coming into the game with a shoulder injury. That usage does not say much for his standing in the New England offense, though Jonas Gray (ankle) being inactive may have force Blount into more work. With his shoulder at almost 100 percent, Blount should be ready to rock when the Patriots return from their first-round bye.
Jimmy Garoppolo completed 10-of-17 passes for 90 yards and no scores after replacing Tom Brady at halftime of the Patriots' Week 17 matchup with the Bills.
Garoppolo made a couple wow plays on the ground, but overall struggled to move the ball against the Bills' stout pass defense. The Patriots' only points of the second half came on a short field after a long Danny Amendola punt return. Garoppolo will resume clipboard duties when the Patriots return from their first-round bye.
Sammy Watkins caught 3-of-5 targets for 57 yards Week 17 against the Patriots.
Watkins hit the rookie wall hard in the second half of the season, but finished with a touchdown or 100 yards receiving in two of his last four games. Watkins finishes his rookie season with 65 catches for 982 yards and six touchdowns. One of the most talented receivers in what will turn out to be the best receiver class in the history of the NFL, Watkins' 2015 success hinges on how the Bills address their quarterback situation this offseason.
Browns SCB K'Waun Williams suffered an apparent head injury Week 17 against the Ravens.
Williams' head slammed into the ground has he made a diving pass breakup in the end zone early in the fourth quarter. He is being evaluated for a concussion. Williams has been solid across 328 snaps this season.
Reggie Wayne left Sunday's Week 17 game at Tennessee in the second quarter with a groin injury.
Wayne made an acrobatic sideline catch and took off toward the end zone. But he blew a tire halfway there, finishing with an 80-yard catch that ended at the 2-yard line. It's a fitting end to the regular season for Wayne, who tried valiantly to help the team one year removed from ACL surgery, but was often a liability. The 36-year-old had 65 catches, 779 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games as a 14-year veteran.
49ers declared RB Carlos Hyde, QB Josh Johnson, WR Stevie Johnson, CB Perrish Cox, CB Tramaine Brock, S Eric Reid, and LB Ahmad Brooks inactive for Week 17 against the Cardinals.
Frank Gore will close out the season as the 49ers' every-down back.
Seahawks declared WR Jermaine Kearse, CB Tharold Simon, TE Cooper Helfet, C Max Unger, OG Keavon Milton, and DE Demarcus Dobbs inactive for Week 17 against the Rams.
Kearse has a hamstring injury, leaving Paul Richardson as the starter opposite Doug Baldwin.
Denarius Moore (knee) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 game at Denver.
Moore wraps his fourth NFL season with 12 catches for 115 yards and zero touchdowns in 10 games, tumbling down the depth chart. The one-time intriguing deep threat will have to settle for a non-guaranteed contract in free agency. The rest of the Raiders inactives: WR Vincent Brown, CB Chimdi Chekwa, CB TJ Carrie, G Tony Bergstrom, T Menelik Watson and DT Stacy McGee.
