Reggie Bush (undisclosed) is not practicing Wednesday.
Calvin Johnson (knee, back) is not practicing Wednesday.
It's another simple rest day for Johnson, who has rarely practiced on Wednesdays this season. He's fully expected to get some work in on Thursday and suit up in a tasty matchup at Philly Sunday.
Jason Campbell (concussion) and Brandon Weeden (concussion) have still not been cleared to practice.
Campbell and Weeden have been cleared for exercise, but not practice. It leaves Alex Tanney and Caleb Hanie to take the first-team reps at Wednesday's session. Even owners desperate for a quarterback in the deepest of leagues can simply ignore the situation, but owners of Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron need to be monitoring. A tough spot (at New Engalnd) would become even tougher if Tanney or Hanie end up starting.
A source tells ESPN that Christian Ponder (concussion) is still not cleared.
Ponder appears unlikely to gain clearance in time to practice and play in a brutal spot at Baltimore on Sunday. Coach Leslie Frazier said Wednesday he'll likely turn to Matt Cassel instead of Josh Freeman. The only Viking we'd want to use in fantasy formats this week is Adrian Peterson.
Michael Hoomanawanui (knee) returned to practice Wednesday.
It's Hoomanawanui's first practice since going down in the Week 11 loss to the Panthers. He'll return as a strict situational blocker.
Kenbrell Thompkins (hip) was spotted riding a bike at Wednesday's practice.
It doesn't look like Thompkins is going to participate in practice, which would make him questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns. Aaron Dobson (foot) wasn't even spotted at all at practice. Look for Tom Brady to rely heavily on Rob Gronkowski, Shane Vereen, Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola again.
Aaron Dobson (foot) is not practicing Wednesday.
Per the Boston Herald, there's no specific timetable for Dobson's return. His sprained foot simply needs time to rest. Consider both Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins (hip) very questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns.
The NFL has fined Steelers coach Mike Tomlin $100,000 for the sideline incident during the Thanksgiving game against the Ravens.
The league will also consider stripping the Steelers of a draft pick once the order is set and compensatory picks are handed out. In the third quarter last Thursday, Jacoby Jones broke a kickoff return down the sideline near the Steelers bench. He was shockingly slowed down by Tomlin, who was standing too close to the field with his back to the play. He says it was an unintentional mistake. Either way, Tomlin is lucky to have avoided a suspension.
