Chip Kelly said Sam Bradford (non-throwing shoulder) will practice Tuesday.
How his injured shoulder responds to the practice will determine his availability for Week 13 against the Patriots. Kelly expressed some doubt Bradford will be ready to play. "If you have some instability in your left shoulder . . . you're susceptible to something if you get hit," Kelly said. "Can he handle that? Can he take a hit so it's not something that's going to affect him long-term?" Mark Sanchez has not played well in place of Bradford, but it is not like Bradford was setting the world on fire when he was starting. Neither player will be worth streaming consideration against the Patriots this week.
Rams coach Jeff Fisher said Stedman Bailey remains in intensive care but is "improving."
Bailey was the victim of an apparent drive-by shooting last week. He suffered two head wounds, one of which required more than six hours of surgery to remove a bullet. Bailey was in a medically induced coma to keep swelling down, but Fisher reported Bailey's girlfriend sent a video of Bailey awake and able to sign his name to teammates before Sunday's game.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot reports Josh McCown suffered a "possible broken collarbone" Monday night against the Ravens.
Mike Pettine said after the game McCown was dealing with a collarbone injury, but said the team will know more after tests Tuesday. If the collarbone is indeed broken McCown's season will be over. The Browns are now faced with the interesting decision of starting Austin Davis, who put them in a position to win Monday night, or Johnny Manziel, who the team spent the last week throwing under the bus. Manziel is the right choice, but he has been all along.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports an MRI confirmed Chiefs OLB Justin Houston suffered a sprained PCL Week 12 against the Bills.
He will miss at least a couple weeks. Tamba Hali is having a great season, but Kansas City does not have a ready-made replacement for Houston with 2014 first-rounder Dee Ford dealing with a back injury. Frank Zombo was an almost every down player once Houston exited against the Bills.
Brian Hartline caught 8-of-12 targets for 74 yards in the Browns' Week 12 loss to the Ravens on Monday night.
The targets and catches were both season-highs. Hartline has posted back-to-back 77- and 74-yard receiving games and appears to have cemented his spot as the No. 2 receiver with Andrew Hawkins and Taylor Gabriel both battling concussions. Still, Hartline has zero upside and a low floor. He's a WR5/6.
Crockett Gillmore caught 3-of-4 targets for 20 yards in the Ravens' Week 12 win over the Browns on Monday night.
Gillmore was expected to be a bigger part of the offense with Matt Schaub taking over at quarterback, but his four targets were third on the team behind Kamar Aiken (10) and Buck Allen (five). Those three will see the majority of the targets the remainder of the season. Gillmore will remain a back-end TE1 next week against the Dolphins, who've allowed the 18th-most points to tight ends.
Travis Benjamin caught 6-of-13 targets for 90 yards and one touchdown in the Browns' Week 12 loss to the Ravens on Monday night.
Benjamin was pretty quiet most of the night before catching a long 42-yard touchdown from Austin Davis late in the fourth quarter to tie the game at 27-27. The Browns tried a couple deep shots to Benjamin previously, but they didn't hit and Josh McCown (collarbone) was injured on one. Benjamin's 13 targets paced the team, and he's now seen double-digit looks in six of the past nine games. With the Browns having no running game, both Benjamin and Gary Barnidge soak up targets. Benjamin will be a solid WR3 play with upside next week against the Bengals.
Chris Givens caught 1-of-3 targets for 48 yards in the Ravens' Week 12 win over the Browns on Monday night.
Matt Schaub hit Givens perfectly in stride deep down the middle of the field to set up Buck Allen's 13-yard catch-and-run touchdown two plays later. It was all the noise Givens made, and his three targets were sixth-most on the team. Givens isn't a serious fantasy option behind default No. 1 WR Kamar Aiken.
