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.

Yahoo! Sports' Rand Getlin reports Oregon senior CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu suffered a "serious knee injury" -- believed to be a torn ACL -- in practice Tuesday.

Ekpre-Olomu is believed to be one of the top cornerbacks available in the 2015 draft. He was expected to be a first- or second-round pick. At 5'10/185, he projects as an ideal slot corner at the NFL level. If it's a torn ACL, Ekpre-Olomu won't be available until midseason next year. Now-Jaguars CB Aaron Colvin tore his ACL at the Senior Bowl last year and made his NFL debut in November.

Harry Douglas (foot) did not practice Wednesday.

The Falcons are getting Douglas a rest day. Roddy White (knee) was also held out of practice. Douglas will remain a WR2 option if Julio Jones (hip) doesn't return this week.
Dec 17 - 3:30 PM

DeAngelo Williams (hand) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Williams is on track to return this week after sitting out the last two games. He'll cut into Jonathan Stewart's workload, but won't be a fantasy option.
Dec 17 - 3:20 PM

Jordan Matthews (knee) is practicing in full for Week 16 against the Redskins.

Matthews is coming off a goose egg on one target in Week 15. He'd make for an intriguing DFS play after back-to-back down weeks. The Redskins' secondary is brutal.
Dec 17 - 3:14 PM

Broncos signed S Josh Bush off their practice squad.

After losing backup safety and special teamer Quinton Carter to I.R. last week, Bush gets the call. He'll fill the exact same role as Carter. Bush appeared in 35 games for the Jets across the 2012-2014 seasons.
Dec 17 - 3:07 PM

Eddie Lacy (eye) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

The Packers listed Lacy with an eye injury, so this isn't related to his hip issue. With 100 total yards in seven straight games, Lacy is locked in as an RB1 for Week 16 against the Bucs.
Dec 17 - 2:49 PM

Philip Rivers (chest) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Rivers hasn't practiced the last two days, but isn't in danger of missing Saturday's game against the 49ers. He'll be a low-end QB1 for Week 16.
