Dez Bryant (finger) returned to a limited Cowboys practice Thursday.

Bryant emerged with a padded white glove on his left hand and some bulky tape around his fractured left index finger. Bryant has informed the Cowboys he wants to play in Sunday's game despite the long-term risks -- now the team just has to make sure he can be effective. Thursday's participation was a positive sign, as Bryant took "quite a few reps" and and reportedly looked good catching passes. After practice, Bryant told reporters, "Only thing y'all need to know is I'm playing."

Philip Rivers completed 20-of-36 passes for 227 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions in the Chargers' Week 15 loss to the Chiefs.

A gambler attempting high-risk throws into double coverage all night, Rivers was made to pay on a third-quarter deep attempt intended for Tyrell Williams when Williams lost track of the ball in the air and Marcus Peters easily picked off Rivers’ pass, returning it deep into Chargers territory. It was Rivers’ first interception in 164 pass attempts, previously the NFL’s longest active streak. Rivers threw his second pick in the fourth quarter on a forced fourth-down throw; FS Ron Parker was on the receiving end. Rivers’ third interception occurred in garbage time on yet another pick by Peters. On the season, six of Rivers’ ten interceptions have come against Kansas City. Rivers will be a low-end QB1 play when the Bolts visit the Jets in Week 16.

Kareem Hunt rushed 24 times for 155 yards and a touchdown and caught 7-of-9 targets for 51 yards and an additional score in the Chiefs' Week 15 win over the Chargers.

In the third quarter, Hunt passed Joe Delaney for the Chiefs’ all-time rookie rushing record; Delaney ran for 1,121 yards in 1981. (Hunt now has 1,201.) On the same drive, Hunt caught a three-yard touchdown from Alex Smith to give Kansas City a 17-13 lead. Hunt got robbed of a second would-be receiving score when officials ruled the ball grazed the grass before Hunt brought it into his body. Running for 40 yards in the first two quarters and 115 after the break, Hunt’s dominant second half and five-yard rushing score in the fourth quarter iced the Chiefs’ much-needed win. With touch totals of 28 and 31 in the last two weeks, Hunt will remain an elite RB1 play when Kansas City hosts Miami’s burnable run defense in Week 16.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Kyle Rudolph (ankle, questionable) is expected to play Week 15 against the Bengals.

It is quite the turnaround for Rudolph, who was listed as doubtful Friday after sitting out the entire week of practice. He was upgraded to questionable on Saturday, however, and now looks set to play. In a bad week for tight ends, he will be worth using in most situations.

Keenan Allen was carted to the locker room with a back injury in Saturday night's Week 15 loss to the Chiefs.

Allen didn't look to be in pain as he rode off on the cart, but this will be a situation to monitor ahead of the Chargers' Week 16 date with the Jets. Held to five catches for 54 yards on eight targets, Allen was mostly limited to short catches by a Chiefs secondary that played one its best games all year. Allen entered this one with 100-plus yards in four straight. Assuming he is healthy, Allen will remain a high-end WR1 against a leaky Jets pass defense in Week 16.

Chargers WLB Denzel Perryman (hamstring) was carted to the locker room in the second quarter of Saturday's Week 15 game in Kansas City.

Perryman could put very little weight on his leg as he made his way off the field following the injury, and trainers on the sideline quickly determined he needed to go indoors, never a good sign. A difference maker for the Chargers' run defense, Perryman's second-half loss will be felt versus Kareem Hunt.

Leonard Fournette (questionable, quad) won't play in Week 15 against Houston.

Fournette was trending toward sitting after missing practice all week. He's still dealing with ankle issues in addition to his quad injury. The early rule out suggests Fournette wasn't close to playing, but he should have a good chance at returning in Week 16. T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory will pick up Fournette's snaps.

Matt Stafford completed 25-of-33 passes for 237 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday’s Week 15 win over the Bears.

Stafford wasn’t asked to much on Saturday as the Bears hardly put up a fight on the offensive end. 21 of Stafford’s pass attempts came in the first half. Stafford’s first touchdown was a 3-yard score to T.J. Jones set up by a 58-yard completion to Marvin Jones where Jones bullied the ball away from a defender. Stafford then connected with Eric Ebron for an 8-yard touchdown to put the game away in the third quarter. Stafford has turned in four consecutive QB2 lines for fantasy, but will get a favorable draw against the Bengals in Week 16 that will have him as a QB1 option.
Dec 16 - 7:38 PM

Eric Ebron caught 5-of-7 targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in Saturday’s Week 15 win over the Bears.

After setting career highs in receptions and yards a week ago, Ebron led the Lions in opportunity for the second straight week. He converted a third down on the opening drive of the game with a 19-yard reception that set up the first points of the game for the Lions, then reeled in a 8-yard touchdown that put Detroit 20-3 in the third quarter. Ebron has quietly put himself back on the streaming map once again at the tight end position for next week’s game against the Bengals.
