According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Cedric Benson has been diagnosed with a Lisfranc foot injury and is out a minimum of eight weeks.

He could miss the season's remainder if doctors determine he needs surgery. Benson insisted after Sunday's game that his injury wasn't serious, but he was clearly overly optimistic. This is devastating news for Green Bay's ground game, and Benson can now be dropped in all fantasy leagues. Alex Green and James Starks will likely handle the load, but there isn't much upside to the two. Green Bay could scour the free agent market, but aside from Tim Hightower and Steve Slaton, there isn't much available. Lisfranc injuries have notoriously ended seasons, so we're not holding our breath for a return to action.

Sterling Shepard (migraines) is inactive for Week 12 against the Redskins.

Keenan Allen caught 11-of-14 targets for 172 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 12 Thanksgiving win over Dallas.

The Cowboys simply could not cover Allen in the middle of the field, and his cherry on top was a 42-yard score that included numerous broken tackles. Allen is a top-ten NFL wide receiver when healthy, and healthy he has been all season, putting to rest "injury-prone" nonsense of years past when he dealt with fluky injuries. Expect Allen to stay white hot in Week 13 against the Browns.

Chargers WR Mike Williams was carted off the field with a knee injury in the first quarter of Week 12 and will not return.

He entered the game nursing a bum knee. It's a disappointing development for the seventh overall pick in the draft, who missed the first part of the year with a back injury. Williams set a season high by playing 55% of the snaps last week.

Ameer Abdullah rushed six times for 14 yards in the Lions' Week 12 loss to the Vikings, adding three receptions for 29 additional yards.

Abdullah also lost yet another fumble. It was credited to Matthew Stafford, but it was 100 percent Abdullah's fault. Stafford put the ball right in Abdullah's mitts. He flat dropped it, and the Vikings made the Lions pay three plays later with a touchdown to go up 13-0. Abdullah's yards per carry is now down to 3.36. Abdullah isn't busting big plays and is rarely scoring. In Year 3, he's proven to be a role player who lacks an obvious role.

Kyle Rudolph caught 4-of-4 targets for 63 yards and two touchdowns in the Vikings' Thanksgiving win over the Lions.

Rudolph's fourth and fifth touchdowns of the season were his first in three weeks. Left alone on score No. 1, Rudolph caught a beautiful rainbow from a pressured Case Keenum for score No. 2. Amazingly, the 60-yard effort was Rudolph's first of the season. He'll be a back-end TE1 for Week 13 against the Falcons.
Nov 23 - 4:16 PM

Adam Thielen caught 8-of-11 targets for 89 yards in the Vikings' Thanksgiving win over the Lions.

The 80-yard effort was Thielen's fourth straight, and pushed him over 1,000 for the season. Thielen and Antonio Brown are the only players currently past the 1K mark. Thielen made a number of tough grabs, and seemed to always be open. What else is new. Playing genuinely superb football, Thielen will be a high-end WR1 for Week 13 against the Falcons.
Nov 23 - 4:16 PM

Marvin Jones caught 6-of-9 targets for 109 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Lions' Thanksgiving loss to the Vikings.

Doing battle with Xavier Rhodes, Jones surprisingly got the better of the Vikings' lockdown corner. His first touchdown was a tough-handed, six-yard grab at the goal line. No. 2 was the real highlight. Jones split double coverage from Rhodes and Terence Newman down the right sideline to secure a 43-yard grab. The real stunner is that Newman was the 12th defender on the field, and was trying to spring off to avoid a penalty. When he realized it was too late, he stayed on to defense Jones, who won the play anyways. White hot, Jones has three 100-yard games in his past five, and has scored five times in the process. He's up to eight on the year. He'll be an upside WR2 against the Ravens for Week 13.

Matthew Stafford completed 20-of-35 passes for 250 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Lions' 30-23 Thanksgiving loss to the Vikings.

It was a game of missed opportunities for Stafford, who was off on a number of "gimme" throws. That was especially true after Stafford tweaked his ankle/knee early in the fourth quarter. In the process of delivering a 43-yard bomb to Marvin Jones — one Jones housed for a score against double coverage — Stafford got his right leg rolled into. He went down in a heap, and was in serious pain. He eventually limped to the sideline and remained in the game, albeit clearly limited. The FOX broadcast said Stafford got his ankle re-taped. He was already wearing a knee brace. It's something to monitor ahead of Week 13, though Stafford has 10 days to get healthy for a tough matchup with the Ravens.
Nov 23 - 4:11 PM

Case Keenum completed 21-of-30 passes for 282 yards and two touchdowns in the Vikings' 30-23, Thanksgiving win over the Lions, adding a nine-yard rushing score.

Keenum came out smoking, relentlessly targeting Adam Thielen while finding Kyle Rudolph for a pair of first half scores. Touchdown No. 2 was one of the best throws of Keenum's career. With a free rusher closing in, Keenum delivered a perfect, 22-yard rainbow to Rudolph in the end zone. The game manager has now generated multiple scores in three of his past four starts, and is playing genuinely solid football. He'll have to keep doing so to avoid Teddy Bridgewater being inserted under center. Keenum should be called on to throw a lot in Week 13 against the Falcons.

Matt Forte (knee) was officially "DNP" on Thursday.

The Jets media thought Forte had returned, but the team evidently didn't feel he did enough to earn a "limited" tag. Forte still seems likely to miss Week 12, leaving the Jets' backfield to Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire.
Nov 23 - 3:58 PM

Tom Brady (Achilles') returned to practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

The Pats are just managing Brady's reps. As Richard Sherman proved, playing through even a "minor" Achilles' issue can be hazardous, but there's little doubt Brady will be out there on Sunday against the Dolphins.
