Mike Wallace (calf) remained limited on Thursday.
Wallace's status isn't in doubt for Sunday's showdown with the Broncos. He's a low-end WR2 for Week 12.
Lamar Miller (shoulder) was downgraded to "limited" on Thursday.
A mid-week downgrade would typically be a concern, but we haven't come across any information about Miller tweaking his shoulder in Wednesday's practice. More than likely, the Dolphins are just limiting his practice reps ahead of a tough matchup with the Broncos. Miller will be a low-end RB2 for Week 12.
Jarvis Landry (shoulder) remained limited on Thursday.
The Dolphins have become arguably the league's most-zealous injury reporters. Landry's status is not a concern for Week 12. He's in the WR4 conversation in what should be a high-scoring game with the Broncos.
Charles Clay (hamstring, knee) missed Thursday's practice.
Now we know where ESPN's Adam Caplan's report that Clay is a game-time decision for Week 12 came from. Clay was not listed with a hamstring on Wednesday, meaning he suffered the injury in his limited practice. The fact that he couldn't go today is a major concern for his Sunday status. Clay's availability will be updated no later than Friday, but owners need to begin making other plans.
Ravens RCB Jimmy Smith's season-ending foot injury was of the "Lisfranc" variety.
Smith recently underwent surgery. It doesn't affect Smith's 2014 status as he's already on injured reserve, but it means he has a tough six months of rehab ahead of him. Lisfranc injuries are among the trickier ailments a football player can suffer. Going into the final year of his rookie contract, Smith was playing at a high level before going down.
The Raiders are on pace for 1,008 rushing yards, which would be the fewest ever for a 16-game season.
If you've found the Raiders' run game to be monumentally futile, that's because it has been. Nevertheless, Oakland has trudged on giving carries to has-beens Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew. That might change in Thursday's game against the Chiefs, as ESPN's Adam Caplan has reported Latavius Murray will finally be in for a bigger workload. There's no reason to expect Murray to be a star, but it's long past time for the Raiders to find out what they have in the 2013 sixth-rounder. DMC and MJD are done.
Speaking Thursday, Raiders owner Mark Davis said GM Reggie McKenzie still had "strong support," but declined to guarantee he'll be back for 2015.
Davis tried to be effusive in his praise, but his lack of a guarantee speaks volumes. McKenzie appears to have had a productive draft, but his free-agent class has proven downright embarrassing for the second-consecutive season. There remains no real excuse for letting LT Jared Veldheer walk in free agency. Davis' lack of a guarantee is likely tied up in the fact that he could be open to hiring a coach who would name his own general manager, a la Jeff Fisher in St. Louis.
Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) returned to Bears practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.
Jeffery's Week 12 availability isn't believed to be in any danger. His status will be updated on Friday.
