Jaguars claimed OL Mark Asper and TE Allen Reisner off waivers from the Vikings.

The Bills, Eagles and Bucs also put in a claim for Asper. He didn't play a single snap with the Vikings this year, but will provide depth behind Brad Meester if active on Sunday. Reisner made a brief appearance filling in for John Carlson earlier this season.

After speaking with Browns coach Mike Pettine Sunday morning, FOX's Jay Glazer refutes a report that Josh Gordon will be limited to 20-30 snaps in Sunday's game at Atlanta.

Gordon showed up to work this week in far better shape than the Browns expected and "really improved" as practices went on. So although the original plan was 20-30 snaps, we could see last year's leading receiver on the field for way more than that. "We have the full gamut in store for him," Glazer relayed from Pettine. They'll check in with Gordon at halftime and see how he feels. "As long as he can deal with the pounding, we are going to run him and run him and run him." Gordon should be in all season-long lineups.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen confirmed Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) suffered no setbacks ahead of Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Listed as probable, Sanders is ready to rock just seven days after a jarring hit from Rams FS Rodney McLeod. He can comfortably be fired up as a WR1.

ESPN's Adam Schefter said on Sunday NFL Countdown that Dan "Boom" Herron is a guy to watch "today and moving forward" in the Colts' backfield.

Herron was a preseson darling, rushing for 112 yards on 22 carries and catching 11 passes for 55 yards and one touchdown. He's a downhill, north-south runner. The Colts see the writing on the wall with Trent Richardson; he doesn't hit the hole hard and sometimes doesn't even see the gaping holes in the running game. Richardson will get the first carries Sunday against the Jaguars, but it may not be long before we see Herron. He's a worthy add for the stretch run.

Sources tell ESPN's Chris Mortensen that Robert Griffin III will be on a short leash in Sunday's Week 12 game at San Francisco.

The Redskins dysfunction continues. Taking over as "Raiders East," they're now leaking that they could yank RG3 in favor of Colt McCoy -- either during Sunday's game or ahead of Week 13. Head coach Jay Gruden sharply criticized Griffin's fundamentals this week and even said the 2012 No. 2 overall pick has been "coddled." The Redskins, 0-2 since RG3 returned from a dislocated ankle, are 9.5-point underdogs Sunday. There's a disconnect between Gruden, who clearly wants a new franchise quarterback, and the front office.

Arian Foster is inactive for Week 12 against the Bengals.

Alfred Blue gets the start in place of Foster. For the second straight week, Blue is a candidate for a lot of volume in a plus matchup. The Texans' Week 12 inactives, in addition to Foster, are CB Kareem Jackson, QB Tom Savage, WR DeVier Posey, S Josh Aubrey, LB Max Bullough, and T Jeff Adams.

Lions declared RB Reggie Bush, DT Nick Fairley, DE Larry Webster, QB Kellen Moore, WR Ryan Broyles, RG Larry Warford, and TE Kellen Davis inactive for Week 12 against the Patriots.

PFT reported Sunday morning that Bush is targeting Thanksgiving against the Bears to make his return. The Lions are smart to hold him out on the Foxboro grass. They will play their next two games on the Ford Field turf.

Giovani Bernard is listed as the Bengals' starting running back for Week 12 against the Texans.

This was expected. Bernard gets veteran deference despite being outplayed by Jeremy Hill all season. Despite Gio getting the technical "start," beat writers anticipate Hill handling more work against Houston. The Bengals' Week 12 inactives are WR Dane Sanzenbacher, RB Rex Burkhead, CB Chris Lewis-Harris, LB Vontaze Burfict, OT Tanner Hawkinson, WR Greg Little, DE Margus Hunt.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports "it would take a miracle" for Larry Fitzgerald (knee) to play Week 12 against the Seahawks.

Fitzgerald didn't practice at all this week and appears to be on the wrong side of the questionable tag. He's battling a sprained MCL. If Fitzgerald sits, Michael Floyd and John Brown will start at receiver with Jaron Brown filling in as the No. 3. John Brown would make for an interesting play against a Seahawks defense that tends to get burned by smaller, faster receivers.

Isaiah Crowell is listed as the Browns' starting running back for Week 12.

As beat reporter Tony Grossi notes, "we've seen this change before, however." For instance, Ben Tate was listed as the Browns' starter in Week 11. The Browns proceeded to start Crowell and utilize him as a full-on feature back, while Terrance West was the change-of-pace runner and Tate was almost strictly used on third downs. Crowell is the best Week 12 fantasy start in Cleveland's backfield, but there is still plenty of volatility with this situation. Keep in mind the Browns' offensive coordinator is Mike Shanahan's son.

A source tells the Miami Herald that Lamar Miller (knee) will play in Sunday's game at Denver.

Miller's shoulder is not thought to be a real concern anymore, but he did pop up with a knee injury sustained in practice this week. It sounds like nothing to be overly concerned with. Miller was able to practice on a limited basis both Thursday and Friday, and the Herald's sources have been spot on with injuries this season. Owners can pencil Miller in as a low-end RB2 for Sunday's 4:25pm ET start.
Nov 23 - 9:37 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Julius Thomas (ankle) will be "a true game-time decision."

Not even Thomas knows if he'll be playing yet, according to RapSheet. Thomas didn't practice at all this week. If he plays, expect him to be limited against the Dolphins. Owners need to make other plans with the 4:25 PM ET kickoff. Jacob Tamme would start for Thomas, but makes for a weak replacement.
