Hakeem Nicks (knee) is listed as probable to face the Bengals in Week 10.

Despite some early-week "puffiness," Nicks' knee has held up just fine in practice the past two days. Although his production has been disappointing, Nicks believes he's close to regaining 2011 form. He's 25th among receivers in Rotoworld's Week 10 ranks.

The league has announced that Sunday's game between the Bills and Jets will not be played in Buffalo.

"Due to public safety concerns in light of the ongoing weather emergency in Western New York, Sunday's Jets-Bills game will not be played in Buffalo," the league said in a statement. It remains unclear where the game will be moved, but most signs point to a Monday tilt in Detroit or Washington D.C. New York apparently isn't an option because of the unfair advantage it would afford the Jets.

Pierre Thomas (shoulder) returned to Saints practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

It's Thomas' first practice of any kind since he went down in Week 7. Speaking afterward, Thomas played coy on his status, but was in "high spirits." The Saints have badly missed Thomas in the screen game, and need him back more than ever with Brandin Cooks (thumb) done for the season. Thomas' return shouldn't put a huge dent in Mark Ingram's workload, as the backs play much-different roles. Khiry Robinson (arm) remains sidelined.

Arian Foster (groin) will be a game-time decision for Week 12.

It's the same thing coach Bill O'Brien said last week, though Foster didn't come close to suiting up against the Browns. He appears to have better odds of going in Week 12, but his status still remains murky, at best. Foster will be a top-five RB1 if he goes, but owners can't be counting on it. Keep Alfred Blue on speed dial as a plug-and-play RB2.

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.

Giovani Bernard (hip) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

According to ESPN's Coley Harvey, Bernard was "was back at No. 1 (duty) during open portion of practice." Bernard is perhaps fantasy's biggest wild card for Week 12, but it's beginning to appear as if he'll be returning to a workload resembling the one he was handling before going down. We still expect Jeremy Hill to maintain a bigger role on early downs, however. With the situation uncertain, both backs can be utilized as RB2s for Week 12.

Delanie Walker (concussion) is practicing in full for Week 12, and fully expected to play against the Eagles.

Barring a setback, Walker will be good to go. Walker remains on the TE1 radar, but an uncertain fit with Zach Mettenberger, he's just a lower-end option for the time being.
Nov 20 - 2:55 PM

Julio Jones (illness) will return to practice on Friday, and is fully expected to play in Sunday's game against the Browns.

Jones' health is not a concern for Sunday's showdown with Joe Haden. Jones' matchup makes him a lower-end WR1 for Week 12, but Jones is a WR1 any time he takes the field.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Sunday's game between the Bills and Jets is expected to be moved from snowbound Buffalo.

Schefter's colleague Adam Caplan reports Bills coaches are "preparing for the chance the game is moved to another venue on Monday night." Per Schefter, the Bills are unsure if Ralph Wilson Stadium will even be ready for Week 13 as Buffalo battles a biblical lake-effect snowstorm. MetLife Stadium and Pittsburgh are two possibilities were the game to indeed be moved. Schefter reports Detroit and Washington are also in play.

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) remained sidelined at Cardinals practice on Thursday.

Fitz is unlikely to get in any practice reps this week, and will at best be "questionable" on Friday's injury report. Speaking Wednesday, coach Bruce Arians said Fitz was "more sore than expected" as he battled a sprained MCL. It's hard to see the upside in playing Fitz at less than 100 percent against the Seahawks in Seattle. We'd ultimately expect him to sit.

Vikings OC Norv Turner insists Jerick McKinnon is still the team's top back despite the addition of Ben Tate.

"We’re excited about Jerick and what he’s done and I see him as our running back," Norval said. According to Turner, Tate is just an "insurance" policy with McKinnon battling a minor back injury and Matt Asiata (concussion) unlikely for Week 12. If Tate is going to threaten McKinnon's No. 1 status, it's not going to be in Week 12 with just four days to learn the playbook. McKinnon will be a boom-or-bust RB2 against the Packers. He returned to practice on Thursday.
Nov 20 - 1:29 PM

Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) and Julius Thomas both remained sidelined at Broncos practice Thursday.

Both players were observing practice, which leaves open the possibility they could return on Friday. Sanders' injury is obviously more tricky, as it involves escaping the league's concussion protocol. Thomas could theoretically suit up for Week 12 without practicing on Friday. For now, both players should be considered no better than 50-50 to play against the Dolphins. Their status will be updated on Friday.
