Cardinals placed TE Rob Housler on injured reserve with a sprained shoulder, ending his season.

The Cardinals announced Housler's season was over on Monday. WR Kerry Taylor was promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move. Housler's injury is just a sprained AC joint, which isn't an overly serious issue. Housler remains one of the more promising young tight ends in the game, but his 2013 fantasy value will rely almost solely on who's under center for the Gridbirds. If it is anyone like Derek Anderson/Max Hall/John Skelton/Ryan Lindley/Brian Hoyer, he'll be in trouble.

Julian Edelman (concussion) has been declared inactive for Week 17 against the Bills.

A Saturday report said any Patriot carrying even the slightest of injuries would be inactive in the meaningless season finale, so Edelman appears to be a victim of that policy. He got in limited practices this week and should be good to go following the Patriots first-round bye. New England also declared TE Rob Gronkowski, RB Jonas Gray, OG Dan Connolly, OT Sebastian Vollmer, LB Donta Hightower and CB Brandon Browner inactive against the Bills.

Jets declared WR Percy Harvin, QB Matt Simms, WR Walter Powell, S Jaiquawn Jarrett, G Wesley Johnson, C Nick Mangold, and DT T.J. Barnes inactive for Week 17 against the Dolphins.

The absence of Harvin makes Eric Decker a sneaky-if-contrarian DFS play against the Fins. Even versus Miami's fading defense, New York's running game is probably going to struggle with All-Pro center Mangold on the shelf.

T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is active and Dwayne Allen (knee) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 game at Tennessee.

Even though the Colts have almost nothing to play for, Hilton is a go as they try to get their offense on track. It's unclear how long he'll play. Meanwhile, Allen's absence gives Coby Fleener a big boost. The rest of the Colts inactives: DB Sheldon Price, LB Jerrell Freeman, OL Joe Reitz, OL Gosder Cherilus, LB Bjoern Werner, DL Zach Kerr.

Patriots declared TE Rob Gronkowski inactive for Week 17 against the Bills.

With the No. 1 seed already locked up, New England is smartly holding Gronk out of a meaningless Week 17 contest with Buffalo. Tim Wright will earn the start in Gronk's place, but he is not a recommended option against the Bills' suffocating pass defense. Buffalo has allowed eight catches for 78 yards TOTAL to tight ends the last five games.

Eagles declared LCB Bradley Fletcher inactive for Sunday's Week 17 finale against the Giants.

Fletcher was listed on the injury report with a hip injury, but this is more of a healthy scratch ahead of a matchup with Odell Beckham. Fletcher, who is headed for free agency, has been among the worst corners in the league all year and a weekly target for savvy fantasy football owners. The bigger question is how bad replacement Nolan Carroll must be in practice if he's not replacing Fletcher until Week 17. Don't downgrade ODB at all. The rest of the Eagles inactives: QB Nick Foles, S Jerome Couplin, OL Julian Vandervelde, OL Dennis Kelly, WR Jeff Maehl and DE Taylor Hart.

Jamaal Charles (ankle, hamstring) is active for Week 17 against the Chargers.

Charles was listed as questionable, but practiced throughout the week. He should be locked into a heavy workload with Chase Daniel starting. The Chiefs inactives are QB Alex Smith, WR Donnie Avery, CB Phillip Gaines, CB Marcus Cooper, C Eric Kush, OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, and DL Nick Williams.
Dec 28 - 11:30 AM

Andre Williams (shoulder) and Rashad Jennings (ankle) are both active for Sunday's Week 17 game against the Eagles.

Expect a relatively even timeshare for Williams and Jennings in this one. We'd rather try to exploit the Eagles' defense with Eli Manning, Odell Beckham and the pass game. The Giants inactives: CB Jayron Hosley, LB Devon Kennard, G Eric Herman, OL Adam Gettis, TE Jerome Cunningham and DT Dominique Hamilton.

Johnny Manziel (IR, hamstring) didn't show up on time for treatment on his injury Saturday and was fined.

Manziel threw a big party Friday night, one that was attended by Josh Gordon and other teammates. It was apparently a good time, as Gordon and Justin Gilbert both missed the Saturday walkthrough and got suspended. Meanwhile, Manziel wasn't at the facility ether Saturday and wasn't answering his phone, so team security was sent to find him. We can't imagine a worse rookie year for JFF, who lost a camp battle to Brian Hoyer, looked wildly unprepared and overwhelmed in two starts and failed to conduct himself well off the field. The Browns will be on the hunt for quarterback help again this offseason.

According to ESPN's Bob Holtzman, A.J. Green (bicep) will play in Sunday night's game against the Steelers but is "uncertain what to expect."

Green "badly" bruised his bicep during last week's win over the Broncos. He attempted to play through it briefly, but was in too much pain and left for good in the third quarter. Green has obviously gotten some of the soreness out over the last six days and earned a "probable" tag, but he doesn't sound close to 100 percent.
Dec 28 - 10:14 AM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Terrance West will start against the Ravens in Week 17.

Literally laughing out loud. This comes a week after West played zero snaps because of poor practice habits. But he's getting the nod over Isaiah Crowell. It'll be hard not to fire up the Ravens defense anywhere and everywhere in fantasy. The Ravens need a win, and the Browns will trot out UDFA Connor Shaw at quarterback, West in the backfield, and be without Josh Gordon.
