NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms Dolphins LT Branden Albert (wrist, questionable) is expected to play Sunday in Week 13 against the Ravens.
So is Laremy Tunsil (shoulder). Both were absent last week against the Niners. According to Rapoport, Albert is expected to play with a cast on his injured wrist. It's a boost to Jay Ajayi's rushing outlook, though he still has a difficult matchup against Baltimore's front seven.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tom Brady (knee, questionable) will play Week 13 against the Rams.
Schefter also reports Julian Edelman (ankle), Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder), and Chris Hogan (back) are "good to go." With Rob Gronkowski (back) done for the year, Brady will have to lean on Edelman and Bennett especially in the passing game, but Hogan and rookie Malcolm Mitchell should have expanded roles as well. Even with Gronk out, Brady remains a high-end QB1.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Eagles are expected to "make a strong push" to sign impending free agent DeSean Jackson this offseason
Aaron Rodgers (hamstring, questionable) is expected to play Sunday in Week 13 against the Texans.
Rodgers' status was never in much doubt after putting in a limited week of practice. After getting off to a relatively slow start, Rodgers has gone ballistic over his last six games, contributing 17 touchdowns and only three interceptions during that span. Even at less than 100 percent, he'll be an elite QB1 Sunday against Houston.
Nelson Agholor is expected to be active Sunday.
Agholor was a healthy scratch last week after his mistake-filled Week 11. With Jordan Matthews (ankle) likely to miss Sunday's game, the Eagles need him back in the lineup. Agholor was playing the most snaps behind Matthews before getting benched, but isn't a lock to resume his starting role. Zach Ertz is the favorite to lead the Eagles in targets.
Rams DE Robert Quinn (concussion, questionable) is expected to miss Sunday's Week 13 game against the Patriots.
Quinn didn't practice all week and remains in the league's concussion protocol. Consider him week to week. It's a big blow to the Rams' pass rush and should give Tom Brady more time to throw, which is never a good thing for opposing defenses.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Colin Kaepernick will void his contract after the season to become a free agent.
Rapoport added voiding the deal would not "rule out a return" to the 49ers next season. Kaepernick is set to make $14.5 million in base salary if he sticks around in San Francisco next season, and it is unlikely he would get much more than the $7.5 million per year Robert Griffin III landed from the Browns on the open market even after a strong finish. Perhaps he is so ready to get away from the 49ers he will take his chances, but this is more likely a negotiating ploy.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jordan Matthews (ankle, questionable) is expected to miss Sunday's Week 13 game against the Bengals.
It would be the first game he's missed in his three-year career. Matthews is still feeling the effects of a sprained right ankle he suffered in Monday night's loss to Green Bay. He tried to practice on Thursday but never felt right. Beat writer Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ Advanced Media called him a "true 50/50 game-time decision" for Week 13, but it looks like the decision has already been made. Nelson Agholor will return to the lineup this week in place of Matthews. He was benched for Week 12.
