The Denver Post suggests the artificial turf at Cincinnati's Paul Brown Stadium makes it less likely Ronnie Hillman (questionable, foot) plays this week.

Hillman is "close" to returning, but the Broncos won't rush him back after doing so with Montee Ball (groin) and ultimately losing him for the season. "I'm better than I was," Hillman said. "Getting better. Progressing. I'm just waiting for them to say, 'You're up this week.' Whenever that happens, it happens. Playoffs, next week, I don't know." Look for Juwan Thompson to spend one more week as C.J. Anderson's primary breather back.

Coach John Fox said Peyton Manning (thigh) "looked good" in Saturday's practice.

Manning's participation in practice this week was "fairly normal," according to Fox. He should be far closer to 100 percent this week than last, when he only attempted 20 passes in a win at San Diego. Denver's shift toward a run-heavy, ball-control team is a concern, but Manning is still a no-brainer top-6 fantasy quarterback this week.

Coach John Fox said Emmanuel Sanders (illness) is fully expected to play in Monday's game at Cincy.

Sanders was sent home from practice Saturday because he was dealing with flu-like symptoms. It's not a real concern as he will make the trip and will almost certainly be in the starting lineup. Lock Sanders in as a WR2.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Joe Haden (shoulder) will not play Sunday at Carolina.

It's a nice boost to Kelvin Benjamin and Cam Newton's matchups. When healthy, Haden has been a top-five cover corner in the second half of this season. Look for Buster Skrine to now shadow Benjamin all over the field, much as he did to A.J. Green after Haden left last week's game against Cincinnati.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports DeAndre Hopkins (questionable, ankle) is "good to go" Sunday against the Ravens.

Hopkins missed practice all week. His activity takes some air out of Andre Johnson's balloon as a Week 16 sleeper. The Texans are facing a Ravens defense capable of dominating with its pass rush, and are starting Case Keenum at quarterback. Hopkins is a low-floor WR3 play in fantasy championship week.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Philip Rivers has a bulging disk in his back, and offseason back surgery "may be (an) option."

Rivers has been playing through significant pain for more than a month. It's been borne out in his on-field play, although Rivers was still able to rally back for a Saturday night win over San Francisco in a gutty and highly impressive performance. Rivers is not in danger of missing the Chargers' Week 17 game at Kansas City. San Diego remains squarely in the playoff hunt. For as long as he's been in the league, Rivers has been one of the toughest players in football. He's even played through a torn ACL before.

Danny Amendola's role is expected to spike with Julian Edelman (concussion) out for Sunday's game at the Jets.

Amendola is projected to work in two-wide sets along with Brandon LaFell and then move into the slot for three-wide formations. On paper, it's a big opportunity for him. But Amendola has been wildly ineffective ever since joining the Patriots, and we'd expect the roles of Tim Wright and Shane Vereen to rise sharply as well. Don't trust Amendola as much more than a low-end WR3 or WR4 despite the opportunity.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported on Sunday Countdown that Julio Jones' specific injury is a strained oblique.

Mort also reiterated that the Falcons are "optimistic" Jones will play today. The Falcons visit the Saints in a 1pm ET game, so we will have Julio's activity or lack thereof posted on the website no later than noon ET today.
