Donald Brown (knee) was downgraded to out in Thursday's practice.

Brown was "full" on Wednesday. This would normally be cause for alarm, but it's the same pattern Brown followed two weeks ago. Brown didn't practice last week with the Colts on a short week, but split time evenly with Vick Ballard in Indy's Thursday evening win. Brown's status will certainly be worth double-checking on Friday, but for now there's no reason to believe he won't be ready to split the load with Ballard against the Patriots.

Arian Foster rushed for 96 yards on 25 carries in the Texans' 25-13, Week 16 win over the Ravens.

He added 23 yards on one catch and even threw a five-yard touchdown as the Texans' do-it-all offensive centerpiece on Sunday. With Case Keenum drawing the start six days after signing off the Rams' practice squad, the Texans leaned heavily on Foster. He took snaps out of the Wildcat -- albeit without much success -- and tossed the Texans' only touchdown to C.J. Fiedorowicz on a toss play to the right. Foster and the 8-7 Texans have a faint pulse in the AFC playoff picture. They'll host the Jaguars in Week 17.

Joe Flacco completed just 21-of-50 passes for 195 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions in the Ravens' 25-13, Week 16 loss to the Texans.

Flacco was brutal all afternoon, and now the 9-6 Ravens are behind the eight ball in the AFC playoff picture. They're currently the first team out behind the No. 6-seed Chargers. All three of Flacco's interceptions came in Ravens territory, setting the Texans up for easy points. He was picked off on back-to-back passes in the first half and missed open receivers ad nauseam. It didn't help that Flacco couldn't step into his passes because of the havoc J.J. Watt and Jared Crick were wreaking on Baltimore's offensive line. It led to arguably Flacco's worst game of his career. The Ravens have to beat the Browns at home in Week 17.

Ben Roethlisberger completed 18-of-25 passes for 220 yards and a touchdown in Pittsburgh's 20-12, Week 16 win over the Chiefs.

Big Ben was slowed by the Chiefs' elite pass defense, but found just enough cushions to propel the Steelers to their 10th win, and a Wild Card berth. Pittsburgh can still clinch the division if they beat the Bengals in Week 17. Ben was lucky to escape without a turnover, as he appeared to lose a first-half fumble, but it was ruled an incomplete pass upon a dubious review. Ben also tweaked his right knee, but was no worse for the wear after running to the locker room for some brief treatment.

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.

Facing the league's No. 2 defense, Clausen played far better than his numbers looked. Bears receivers dropped an absurd seven passes, many of them easy catches on third downs that would have kept drives alive. Clausen's lone turnover was a fourth-down Hail Mary with under two minutes left in the game. He was very confident and calm both in pre-snap reads and in the pocket, executing Marc Trestman's offense far better than benched Jay Cutler has in the last month. It reaffirms our belief that Cutler was the issue for the Bears' offense, not Trestman. Cutler just won't listen to the whispers.

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.

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.
