Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) returned to practice Friday.
Julius Thomas (ankle) was also in attendance, though he wasn't doing as much. Sanders appears to have progressed through the league's concussion protocol, though it's unclear if he's been cleared by an independent neurologist, which is the final step. We'll have another update on Sanders this afternoon.
Dwayne Allen (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Jaguars.
As expected. Coby Fleener will get the start and be an every-down player in place of Allen. He's a plug-and-play TE1 against Jacksonville's bottom-third defense.
Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the 49ers.
Niles Paul will get the start and handle pass-catching duties with fellow TE Logan Paulsen chipping in as a blocker. Paul is a dart-throw TE2 at a position lacking any sort of depth behind Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, and Antonio Gates.
Matt Asiata (concussion) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.
He appears extremely doubtful for Week 12. Jerick McKinnon will be the lead back with newcomer Ben Tate possibly pitching in on short-yardage work.
Jordan Cameron (concussion) returned to Browns practice Friday.
Cameron has missed the past three games with a concussion and hadn't practiced since. It's unclear what this means for his Week 12 availability against the Falcons, so we'll have to wait for an update from coach Mike Pettine after practice.
Jordan Reed (hamstring) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.
He's unlikely to play Week 12 against the 49ers, leaving Niles Paul atop the depth chart at tight end. Paul would make for an interesting dart-throw in daily leagues.
Dwayne Allen (ankle) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.
Allen has missed practice all week and is fully expected to sit out Week 12 against the Jaguars. Coby Fleener is a plug-and-play mid-to-high TE1. Allen is believed to be dealing with a high-ankle sprain. Consider him week-to-week.
Julio Jones (illness) returned to practice Friday.
As expected. There's a bug going around the Falcons' locker room, but Julio is fine for his date with Joe Haden on Sunday. He's our No. 11 receiver for Week 12.
