Danny Amendola missed Wednesday's practice with a foot injury, and is in a walking boot.

The word comes straight from coach Jeff Fisher. It's not good news, but it would be a much bigger concern had Amendola not played through the injury in the second half of Sunday's loss. That doesn't mean he'll be a go for Week 12, but there's still a strong chance Amendola plays against the Cardinals. However, it's possible he'll do so as a game-time decision who gets in zero practice reps. With the Rams not playing until 4:25ET, owners need to begin making contingency plans.

Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) admitted he is not 100 percent healthy.

We did not need the confirmation after watching him on the field the last couple weeks, but Bennett said he plans to keep playing through the issues. "I never thought about [sitting out]. I just keep going," Bennett said. "I’m like the Energizer Bunny. I just try to find a way." At less than 100 percent and being asked to do less in the passing game, Bennett is a risky option in the first week of the fantasy playoffs.

Bills GM Doug Whaley said the team will decide whether to retain Tyrod Taylor after the season.

"He's got 4 more games to write this chapter," Whaley said. "Then after this season, like everybody on the team, we're going to do an evaluation and then we'll go from there." Whaley was equally cryptic about Taylor's future last offseason before signing him to a "six-year, $92 million" contract in August which was really a one-year deal with a $27.5 million option for 2017. Taylor has played well enough to cement himself as the starter in Buffalo, and the Bills really do not have any other option but to retain him. Whaley could be soft-playing his hand in an attempt to finagle a renegotiation, but Buffalo has to retain Taylor at this point.

Jadeveon Clowney (elbow, wrist) said he will play this week against the Colts.

Clowney sat out last week's game against the Packers, but he is on track to play against Indy after returning to practice Thursday. "I feel good. I feel good enough to go," Clowney said. "Yeah, I'll be out there." With CB Johnathan Joseph expected to sit with an injury to his ribs, the Texans will need Clowney to get after Andrew Luck on Sunday.

Tyreek Hill caught 6-of-6 targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 14 win over the Raiders, adding a 78-yard punt return score.

Hill also had a two-yard rush. Hill is turning into one of the most dangerous players in the league with the ball in his hands. He scorched David Amerson on his 36-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter. He was shot out of not one, but two cannons on his special teams score. The big night came even with Jeremy Maclin back in the lineup. Hill should maintain WR3 value down the stretch.

Jeremy Maclin caught 1-of-3 targets for 16 yards in the Chiefs' Week 14 win over the Raiders.

Maclin was invisible as Alex Smith shredded the Raiders in the first half, and even more invisible as Smith struggled in the second. Pro Football Focus charted him as playing 42-of-55 snaps, so it wasn't a playing-time issue. Maclin has legitimately struggled this year. He'll be a low-upside WR4 in Week 15 against the Titans. Travis Kelce is the Chiefs' new No. 1 receiver.

Chiefs ILB Derrick Johnson has been diagnosed with a ruptured left Achilles' tendon, and is done for the season.

Johnson knew it the second he went down in non-contact fashion in the first half. Coach Andy Reid simply called it a "sad deal." Reid couldn't be more right, as the 34-year-old linebacker was having another solid year as an every-down player after tearing his right Achilles' tendon in 2014. The Chiefs still have a loaded defense for the stretch run, but were already having problems up the gut against the run. This won't help. As for Johnson, it's fair to say his career is now in doubt. He's due $4.75 million in 2017, but probably won't be back at that price, and likely won't be ready for Week 1.

Travis Kelce caught 5-of-8 targets for 101 yards in the Chiefs' Week 14 win over the Raiders.

The 100-yard effort was Kelce's fourth straight, and fifth in seven games. Like he's done for the entirety of his hot streak, Kelce was gashing the defense for huge gains up the seam. Kelce could have had an even bigger game had Alex Smith not gone into witness protection after halftime. Most encouragingly, the big night came with Jeremy Maclin back in the lineup. Kelce will be a top-three tight end for next week's home matchup with the Titans.

Amari Cooper caught 5-of-10 targets for 29 yards in the Raiders' Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

This is a game the second-year wideout would like to have back. Cooper caught two extremely lucky breaks in the first half. A should-have-been fumble was ruled an incomplete pass, and Cooper's offensive pass interference in the end zone was called defensive pass interference. His luck ran out after the break, as he committed one of the most baffling non-catches in recent memory. With Derek Carr scrambling out of the pocket to deliver a nearly-perfect deep strike, Cooper somehow lost the ball in flight. It was an inexcusable play, one that cost the Raiders a 72-yard touchdown. Cooper keeps inventing new ways not to score. He's now been held below 60 yards in five straight games, and below 30 in 2-of-3. The Chargers aren't a stay-away matchup for Week 15, but Cooper is a volatile fantasy option right now.

Alex Smith completed 17-of-26 passes for 264 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Chiefs' 21-13, Week 14 win over the Raiders.

Even by Smith's standards, it was a deeply bizarre performance. Smith played like 2011 Aaron Rodgers in the first half, completing 11-of-16 passes for 203 yards and his score. He was legitimately gunslinging, and taking accurate shots deep. It was like he was a completely new quarterback. The switch flipped at halftime. He was picked on an awful throw on his second attempt of the third quarter, and lost a fumble to begin Kansas City's next drive. The game was an atrocious slog from there on out. Despite the rough half, Smith has been playing legitimately better of late thanks to Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill. He'll be a decent QB2 against the Titans in Week 15.
Dec 8 - 11:48 PM

Derek Carr completed 17-of-41 passes for 117 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Raiders' 21-13, Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

At least for one week, the MVP talk will be put on ice. Carr's 2.85 yards per attempt was the second lowest in NFL history for a quarterback attempting at least 40 passes. With the temperature checking in at "frigid plains," Carr was noticeably bothered by his pinkie injury. He flat missed throws all evening. This being the Raiders, however, he was also hurt by a number of awful drops/misconnections, none worse than Amari Cooper's baffling inability to haul in a would-be 72-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. It's a score that would have changed the game, and kept Carr out of the history books. With his finger an issue, the Raiders' 10-day break couldn't be coming at a better time. Carr has a get-right Week 15 matchup in the Chargers.

Raiders LG Kelechi Osemele (illness) is inactive for Week 14 against the Chiefs.

Osemele couldn't get healthy on a short week. It's a big blow for what's been one of the league's top offensive lines. Osemele has been worth every penny as a free agent this year. He should be back for Week 15. Inactive for the Raiders are QB Connor Cook, CB Antonio Hamilton, S Karl Joseph, DT Darius Latham, LB Shilique Calhoun and DT Stacy McGee.
