Andre Johnson has passed the concussion protocol.

Johnson ends up missing one game due to his brain injury. He returns in a plus matchup against the Ravens' brutal corners, but will have to deal with Case Keenum at quarterback. Both Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins are risky WR3 types.

Cam Newton (back) took the majority of first-team reps at practice Thursday.

Newton appears on track to return after missing just one game. He'd slide in as a back-end QB1 against the Browns, although he'd come with risk. When Newton is hesitant to use his legs, his fantasy projection is severely capped.

Kyle Rudolph (knee, ankle, groin) is not practicing again Thursday.

Rudolph's inability to completely put his sports hernia surgery behind him is a concern. If he is held out Sunday at Miami, Chase Ford will start.

Julian Edelman (concussion) is practicing again Thursday.

We have no word on if Edelman has merely been cleared for practice, or if he's been cleared for full contact. But given his presence each of the last two days, he's on track to suit up as a WR2 against the Jets Sunday.

T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) was not spotted at the beginning of Colts' practice Thursday.

It's a concern after the Colts said they tentatively expected Hilton back on the practice field Thursday. Given that they've already clinched the AFC South yet can't realistically earn a first-round bye, it's possible they'll exercise caution with their stud No. 1 wideout. If Hilton does sit against Dallas, Donte Moncrief and even Hakeem Nicks would be worth a look as streamers. Reggie Wayne (triceps) could be on a snap count.

LeSean McCoy admitted that Chris Polk is taking over as the Eagles' primary goal-line back.

Polk played three snaps in Week 15, turning two of them into short touchdowns. A third goal-line carry went to Darren Sproles. "Polk's obviously a little bit more powerful back, so they've been giving him some of the runs in short-yardage in a couple games, especially last game. ... "There's just some plays on 3rd-and-1 type of situations where I probably wouldn't have gotten it, where I see him kind of hit a guy, drag a guy and get in there," McCoy candidly conceded. It's not out of the question that Shady gets some goal-line chances in the flow of the Eagles' hurry-up scheme, but Polk is a drain on touchdown projections. We already know McCoy was struggling to churn up yards and has lost significant pass-game work to Sproles.

Harry Douglas (foot) returned to practice Thursday.

Douglas has routinely been sitting out Wednesdays this season. It has not affected him on Sundays, as evidenced by the 10-131-0 line he put on the Steelers in Week 15. Douglas will be a WR2 against the Saints this week if Julio Jones (hip) sits.

Roddy White (knee) returned to practice Thursday.

White was just taking a maintenance day Wednesday. The knee doesn't appear to be a real issue, but the 33-year-old's upside is capped by a lack of juice in his legs.
