Brandon LaFell (shoulder) was limited on Wednesday.

LaFell will continue to play through his shoulder injury. He's on the WR2 radar against the Jets in Week 16.
Dec 17 - 4:21 PM

Shane Vereen (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Vereen hasn't had any setbacks with his ankle injury. He'll be a boom-or-bust FLEX option against the Jets for the fantasy finals.
Dec 17 - 4:19 PM

Julian Edelman (concussion) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

The fact that Edelman is practicing is a good sign, but his Week 16 status is up in the air. Edelman will be a high-floor WR2 if active for Sunday's matchup with the Jets.
Dec 17 - 4:12 PM

LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Blount was out-snapped and out-touched by Jonas Gray last week but did rush for 17 yards and one touchdown on eight carries. We'd tentatively expect Blount to play against the Jets, but he's barely on the RB3 radar.
Dec 17 - 4:10 PM

Keenan Allen (ankle, collarbone) has been ruled out for Week 16 against the 49ers.

As expected. Seyi Ajirotutu will fill the No. 3 receiver role behind Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal. Look for Antonio Gates to see a bump in targets. Those hanging onto Allen in re-draft leagues can safely cut ties with him.
Dec 17 - 4:07 PM

Calvin Johnson (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

The Lions have been limiting Johnson's practice reps the last three weeks. He'll be a top-five receiver play for Sunday's game with the Bears.
Dec 17 - 4:06 PM

Andre Johnson (concussion) practiced on Wednesday.

Johnson was inactive last week due to his concussion. He's expected to return for Sunday's matchup with the Ravens. Johnson isn't a recommended fantasy option with Case Keenum or Thad Lewis expected to start.
Dec 17 - 4:01 PM

49ers waived LE Ray McDonald.

It's been a long time coming for McDonald. Wednesday's announcement that McDonald is a suspect in an alleged rape from last week that took place at his home was the final straw for the 49ers. It also helps that they're out of the playoff race. McDonald has had a number of off-field red flags, ranging from DUI, all-night partying, felony domestic violence arrest in August, and now this. The 49ers will eat over $4.6 million in dead money against the 2015 salary cap by releasing him.
