Kenbrell Thompkins (hip) remained limited in Thursday's practice.
Limited tags are useless with the Patriots, offering zero clues as to his Thompkins' Week 15 status. It's entirely unclear if he's ready to resume "X" receiver duties. Fantasy owners can't be counting on Thompkins for the second week of the fantasy playoffs.
Tom Brady (throwing shoulder) remained limited in Thursday's practice.
Brady's status isn't a concern for Week 15. Adjusting to life without Rob Gronkowski, he'll be a mid-range QB1 against the Dolphins' solid pass defense.
Dexter McCluster was added to the Chiefs' injury report Thursday, missing practice with an ankle issue.
Typically, a practice injury earns a "limited" tag, so it's possible McCluster got hurt at the very end of Wednesday's session. Either way, it throws his Week 15 status into doubt. Coming off an excellent all-purpose effort against the Redskins, McCluster is a WR4 in leagues that count return yardage.
Eagles RCB Cary Williams was added to the injury report with a hamstring issue Thursday, getting in a limited session.
Williams was "nowhere to be seen" in the locker room after suffering the injury. Healthy all season, Williams should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Williams has graded out as the No. 86 cornerback (out of 111) in Pro Football Focus' ratings.
Carson Palmer (elbow) remained limited in Thursday's practice.
It's the same pattern Palmer followed last week before looking like his usual self against the Rams. Palmer is a mid-range QB2 in a tough road matchup with the Titans' stout pass defense.
Andre Ellington (knee) remained limited in Thursday's practice.
The Cardinals are just managing Ellington's reps ahead of a solid matchup with the Titans. Ellington is an RB2/FLEX for Week 15.
Marvin Jones (shoulder) remained limited in Thursday's practice.
We don't have many details on Jones' injury, but it doesn't appear to be a concern for his Week 15 status. Jones will be a touchdown-dependent WR4 against the Steelers.
Speaking Thursday, Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) said he would "need to take the majority of the reps" in Friday's practice to suit up against the Cowboys.
Rodgers also said he'd have to get back a positive scan to be cleared to play. The Packers are dragging out Rodgers' status longer than they have the past few weeks, but he still appears ultimately unlikely to give it a go. That is not to say there's a zero percent chance, however. We should get a final answer on Friday.
