The Packers declined to update the status of WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring, ankle) following Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

According to teammates, Nelson had no problems at all with the hamstring injury that kept him out of Week 8. Instead, it was an ankle injury he sustained in the first quarter that kept him sidelined. The good news is that Nelson never left the bench area and did try to put a cleat on to test the ankle at one point. It sounds like a standard sprain as the Packers head into their bye. We should know more Monday.

Jimmy Clausen completed 23-of-39 passes for 181 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 20-14 Week 16 loss to the Lions.

Dec 21 - 4:13 PM

Cam Newton completed 18-of-31 passes for 201 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Panthers' Week 16 win over Cleveland, adding 12 carries for 63 yards and an additional score.

The Panthers' passing game struggled, but Newton plunged in for a two-yard touchdown on a second-quarter bootleg to give Carolina a 10-3 lead. OC Mike Shula was surprisingly aggressive utilizing Cam as a runner under two weeks removed from his scary car accident. Cam dominated on bootleg runs in this game, finishing with his third highest rushing total of the season. Newton threw his lone TD pass to Jonathan Stewart from nine yards out in the fourth quarter, which proved the game winner. At 6-8-1, the Panthers will face the Falcons in Week 17 for the NFC South title.

Joique Bell rushed 13 times for 74 yards with one touchdown and caught two passes for 13 yards in Sunday's 20-14 Week 16 win at Chicago.

Bell was oddly benched for the entire first quarter, perhaps due to some kind of rules violation. But it was business as usual after he got his first snap with 12:36 left in the second quarter. Bell was the feature back, hogging clock-killing and red-zone work even though Reggie Bush was looking extremely spry. The highlight was a madden-style 17-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter that gave the Lions a lead they would hold. Earlier, Matthew Stafford barely missed Bell on a wheel route that would have gone for a touchdown. The Lions close the regular season at Green Bay next week, a game that will decide the NFC North.
Dec 21 - 4:07 PM

Matt Ryan completed 30-of-40 passes for 322 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' Week 16 win over the Saints.

The story of the game was pressure. The Saints defense rarely put Ryan under pressure, recording zero sacks and only hitting the quarterback twice all game. With nothing but time, Ryan was able to surgically pick apart the Saints' secondary, spreading the ball between 10 different pass catchers. Ryan has now thrown for 300 yards four straight weeks. He can lead the Falcons to the playoffs with a win against Carolina Week 17.

Donte Moncrief is the Colts' starting wide receiver opposite Reggie Wayne in Sunday's game against Dallas.

Third-round rookie Moncrief got the nod over Hakeem Nicks. Moncrief is a high-upside WR3 play in fantasy football leagues, with a raised floor due to T.Y. Hilton's (hamstring) inactivity.
Dec 21 - 3:16 PM

Percy Harvin was forced from the Jets' Week 16 game against the Patriots with a rib injury, and will not return.

Harvin went down midway through the third quarter, and was ruled out early in the fourth. The injury-prone wideout had four catches for 44 yards before going down, adding two rushes for one yard. With only one game left, it's possible Harvin has played not only his final snap of the season, but as a Jet.

DeMarco Murray (hand) is officially active for Week 16 against the Colts.

As expected Murray will play, but he may be limited by the cast on his left hand. Lance Dunbar should see more work in the passing game while Joseph Randle could siphon off some carries as well. With both RT Doug Free (ankle) inactive and RG Zack Martin (ankle) banged up, Murray could also be hindered by the health of the Cowboys' offensive line. Even with all the concerns, Murray has proven this season is a must-start option. Along with Free, the Cowboys declared DE Kenneth Boatright, DT Josh Brent, DB Jakar Hamilton, T Donald Hawkins, QB Dustin Vaughn and OLB Dekoda Watson inactive for Week 16.
Dec 21 - 3:15 PM

T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is officially inactive for Week 16 against the Cowboys.

Hilton tested out his hamstring before the game, but the Colts eventually made the correct decision to sit their talented wide receiver. With the division locked up and a first-round bye a pipe dream, there is no reason to risk Hilton against Dallas. Donte Moncrief is a high-upside play against the Cowboys burnable defense. Colts also declared T Gosder Cherilus, G Joe Reitz, CB Jalil Brown, CB Sheldon Price, G Hugh Thornton and DT Montori Hughes inactive for Week 16.
Dec 21 - 3:03 PM

C.J. Spiller (collarbone) is active for Week 16 against the Raiders, as expected.

Spiller was listed as probable. He's back after an eight-week stay on I.R./recall. With Spiller active, Bryce Brown is a healthy scratch. Also inactive for the Bills are WR Deonte Thompson, CB Ross Cockrell, LB Larry Dean, LB Randell Johnson, OL Cyrus Kouandjio, and TE Chris Gragg.
Dec 21 - 3:00 PM

Johnny Manziel exited Sunday's game after taking a hit from Panthers S Colin Jones in the second quarter.

On a designed run in the second quarter, Johnny Football took a blow to the head from Jones. Brian Hoyer entered the game. Manziel ultimately went to the locker room with a towel on his head and surrounded by trainers. Officially, the Browns are saying Manziel suffered a hamstring injury. Before leaving, Manziel was 3-of-8 passing for 32 yards and three rushing yards. We don't expect Manziel to reenter Sunday's game.
Dec 21 - 2:17 PM

DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is officially active for Week 16 against the Ravens.

He didn't practice all week, so we don't feel great about Hopkins. Pair that with the Texans' starting QB situation, and Hopkins is a WR3. But he should see decent targets against an injury-ravaged Ravens cornerback group. Inactive for the Texans are QB Tom Savage, TE Garrett Graham, ILB Mike Mohamed, LG Xavier Su'a-Filo, WR DeVier Posey, S Josh Aubrey, and OLB Jason Ankrah.
