Chargers TE Ladarius Green (ankle, concussion) has resumed practicing.
Green is now on track to return for Saturday's game against the 49ers. With Keenan Allen (sidelined), the Bolts could feature more two-tight end sets than usual, giving Green more run than he's typically been getting in 2014.
Philip Rivers (back, chest) returned to Chargers practice Thursday.
Rivers took a rare rest day on Thursday, but will be ready to go for Saturday's game against the 49ers. Playing at well less than 100 percent without No. 1 receiver Keenan Allen, Rivers isn't a realistic QB1 for the fantasy finals.
Ryan Mathews (ankle) remained sidelined Thursday.
Mathews "wasn't close" to playing in Week 15, and appears all but guaranteed to miss his second-straight game. The oft-injured 2010 first rounder could be heading into free agency having appeared in just 6-of-16 games this season. Branden Oliver and Donald Brown will form a low-upside committee against the 49ers.
Percy Harvin returned to Jets practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.
Harvin will be fine for Week 16, but going up against one of the league's best secondaries with Geno Smith at quarterback, he's not a realistic WR3 for the fantasy finals.
Peyton Manning (thigh) was given a day of rest on Thursday.
Twitter panic is already ensuing, but Manning's Week 16 status is in zero doubt. Today is the Broncos' first practice of the week since they're playing on Monday Night Football. Manning will be back for Friday's session, and can confidently be fired up as a QB1 for the fantasy finals.
Browns LCB Joe Haden (shoulder) has yet to resume practicing.
Haden was riding a stationary bike at Thursday's session. That's a sign he's yet to be ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. With the Browns fighting for a .500 record or better, they'd undoubtedly let Haden suit up even if he doesn't practice this week. His status will be updated in the next 48 hours.
Andrew Hawkins missed Thursday's practice.
It's likely just a day of rest, or perhaps Hawkins is under the weather. He's going to be fine for Sunday's game against the Panthers, but won't be on the WR3 radar.
A.J. Green was held out of Thursday's practice.
Per Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson, the "thinking is" that Green is under the weather. Whatever it is, we're not in any way concerned about his Week 16 availability. Green's status will be updated later Thursday afternoon.
