Lions C Travis Swanson (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 14.
Swanson has been enjoying a bounce-back year after a dreadful 2015 season. The Lions will turn to third-round rookie Graham Glasgow at center.
Adam Humphries (concussion) is out for Week 14 against the Saints.
Humphries has practiced on a limited basis the last two days but remains in the league's concussion protocol. Tampa Bay's receiving corps is paper-thin right now with Humphries and Cecil Shorts (knee) both sidelined. Mike Evans and Cameron Brate should draw most of the targets from Jameis Winston in Week 14.
Texans ILB Brian Cushing (back) is expected to play in Week 14 against the Colts.
Cushing has a questionable tag, but he's going to keep gutting out two broken bones in his back. Despite the injury, Cushing has been having a solid season, making an impact in run support and not getting embarrassed in pass coverage.
Braxton Miller (shoulder) is out for Week 14 against the Colts.
He's dealing with a sprained shoulder and is week to week. Tyler Ervin (ribs), Tom Savage (elbow) and Jaelen Strong (ankle) have also been ruled out for Sunday. Miller has been a non-factor this year with just 15 catches for 99 yards and one touchdown over 10 appearances.
Dolphins coach Adam Gase said MLB Kiko Alonso will be a game-time decision (thumb, hamstring, doubtful) against the Cardinals in Week 14.
It's odd that Gase would make this claim but still list Alonso as doubtful. If there was a real chance of him playing, the Dolphins easily could have listed him as questionable. Earlier, beat writer Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald said Alonso would be absent this week, barring a "miraculous improvement to his hamstring." Mike Hull will be at the ready in the likely event that Alonso sits.
NFL suspended Browns WR Jordan Payton four games for violating the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy.
It'll end Payton's season. A fifth-round pick out of UCLA, Payton earned only 30 snaps on offense while wallowing behind Terrelle Pryor, Corey Coleman, Andrew Hawkins, Ricardo Louis, and Rashard Higgins on the Browns' wide receiver depth chart. Payton may be hard pressed to make the Browns' 2017 roster, but he will be given every opportunity in next year's training camp.
DeVante Parker (back) is questionable for Week 14 against the Cardinals.
He was upgraded to a full practice on Friday and should be all systems go for Sunday. Facing a difficult matchup against Patrick Peterson, Parker will be a tough sell as a WR3 this week.
John Brown (illness) is questionable for Week 14 against the Dolphins.
He put in two limited practices this week. Brown's sickle-cell issues haven't gone away and it looks like he'll be on a snap count until further notice. Fantasy owners should be looking elsewhere.
