Dwayne Allen (ankle) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

Nov 21 - 11:22 AM

Julio Jones (illness) returned to practice Friday.

As expected. There's a bug going around the Falcons' locker room, but Julio is fine for his date with Joe Haden on Sunday. He's our No. 11 receiver for Week 12.

Adrian Peterson admitted "maybe it's best for me to get a fresh start somewhere else" in 2015.

Peterson sat down for an exclusive interview with USA Today's Tom Pelissero, a former Vikings beat writer. You can read it in its entirety at the link below. Peterson has supporters in the Vikings organization, including coach Mike Zimmer, but a change of scenery may be best for all parties. There's no way the Vikings are going to pay Peterson the $15 million-plus he's owed in 2015. They can try and trade him in the spring. Turning 30 in March, A.D. still has gas in the tank.

The Indianapolis Star expects Trent Richardson to handle third-down duties with Ahmad Bradshaw (broken leg) done for the season.

Bradshaw played 84 percent of the third-down snaps the first 11 weeks. That work now falls into Richardson's lap, which means more touches and opportunities for big plays. It's up to Richardson to make the most of it. Expect Richardson to flirt with 20 touches per game the final six weeks, giving him a high floor as an RB2 in one of the most explosive offenses in the league.

The Giants have benched rookie LG Weston Richburg.

Adam Snyder will get the start between LT Will Beatty and C J.D. Walton in Week 12 against the Cowboys. Activated off I.R./recall this week, Geoff Schwartz will make his Giants debut at right tackle, replacing an injured Justin Pugh (quad) next to RG John Jerry. Richburg, the 43rd pick in May, needs to get stronger.

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner expects a 65:35 split favoring Jeremy Hill in the Bengals backfield Week 12 against the Texans.

Sounds about right. Hill has severely outplayed Bernard this season, averaging 5.73 YPC in his three starts compared to 4.09 for Gio. Earlier this week, OC Hue Jackson hinted at easing Bernard back into the mix after his three-game absence. Bernard also worked with the receivers last week, suggesting he'll be featured more as a pass-catcher out of the backfield while Hill hammers it between the tackles. Hill is a strong RB2 with RB1 upside. Bernard is merely a FLEX.

Coach Tony Sparano admits Latavius Murray "earned more snaps" after his four-carry, 112-yard, two-touchdown effort against the Chiefs on Thursday night.

Ya think? Murray didn't get the start Thursday, but entered early in the first quarter and capped off the second and fourth possessions with 11- and 90-yard touchdown runs, respectively. Murray has always been long on talent; it just took Sparano taking over as the coach for the Raiders to realize it and start giving him more snaps. Murray has 10 days to get cleared of his concussion before Week 13 at St. Louis. He has maybe the toughest Weeks 13-16 schedule of any running back.
Nov 21 - 9:38 AM

ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure expects Devonta Freeman to see more touches in the wake of Antone Smith's season-ending broken leg.

Smith broke his leg last week. Freeman saw six carries -- his second-highest total of the season -- against the Panthers. He's the clear No. 2 to Steven Jackson, but Jackson has pulled ahead as the top dog in Atlanta's backfield. Smith wasn't getting more than 2-4 touches per game before his injury anyway. Don't expect a drastic uptick in Freeman's workload. There's no standalone appeal.
