Joe Flacco is active for Week 17 against the Bengals but will only play a series or two before joining the rest of the Baltimore starters on the sideline.

Flacco, Ray Rice, and Torrey Smith will get in a few snaps just to stay sharp and get the competitive juices flowing. Tyrod Taylor will then come in and handle quarterback duties for the rest of the day. Flacco will wrap up a less-than-stellar regular season, but he can earn himself some money by performing well in the playoffs.

Eric Decker (hamstring) remains a true game-time decision for Monday night against the Bears.

"Even if he plays, you have to wonder how effective he'll be," said beat writer Manish Mehta. Decker did get a limited practice in on Saturday, giving owners some hope. He'll likely test the hammy out in pregame with trainers before making a final call. If Decker can go and is anywhere near 100 percent, he'll have a very tasty matchup against a Charles Tillman-less Bears secondary.

Lions MLB Stephen Tulloch tore his left ACL during Sunday's win over the Packers.

Tulloch suffered the injury in humiliating, Bill Gramatica fashion: Celebrating a sack with an attempt at a discount double-check. The sturdy veteran had previously never missed a game in his nine-year career. "It's unfortunate, man, you're passionate about the game," Tulloch said. "You want to get up and celebrate and it happened." The Lions compensated Sunday by moving DeAndre Levy to the middle and inserting Tahir Whitehead at weak-side linebacker.

Eagles C Jason Kelce reportedly needs surgery to repair a hernia.

It's the latest blow to a mangled Eagles offensive line. Kelce will reportedly be out 6-8 weeks, leaving David Molk to step in at center. This is a unit that was already without RT Lane Johnson (4-game suspension), RT Allen Barbre (ankle) and stud LG Evan Mathis (knee). An offensive line that was nothing short of dominant last season is now playing at a bottom-five level.

The Bears remain optimistic that Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) will play in Monday night's game against the Jets.

The Bears have been expecting each of their starting wideouts to play all week. In fact, there's reason to believe they're healthier now than they were against the 49ers when they combined for eight catches, 95 yards and three touchdowns. We'll have official word around 7pm ET.

The Bucs are reportedly confident that Doug Martin (knee) will return for Week 4 against the Steelers.

Martin was a late scratch last Thursday night, giving Bobby Rainey a chance to run toward the lead of this committee. Instead, Rainey lost two fumbles, averaged 3.72 YPC and the Bucs got whipped 56-14 by the Falcons. In other words, things couldn't have gone much better for Martin owners. If truly healthy, he'll likely start against a Steelers defense that is both shaky and injured.

Steelers ILB Ryan Shazier has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL.

Shazier is undergoing an MRI Monday to determine how long he'll be out. It's a major blow to an already shaky Steelers defense, as the No. 15 overall pick gave this unit the sideline-to-sideline speed it desperately needs. Now they'll move forward without RCB Ike Taylor (arm), OLB Jarvis Jones (wrist) and Shazier. William Gay, Arthur Moats and Sean Spence are the respective backups.

Jarrett Boykin dropped two more catchable balls in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

A red-zone drop in Week 2 is what got Davante Adams going initially and Boykin continued to struggle Sunday. Per the Green Bay Press-Gazette, "Aaron Rodgers' confidence in him as the No. 3 receiver has to be eroding." Note that Boykin played on 36-of-54 snaps against the Lions, while Adams was in on 35 snaps. We'd expect the more talented Adams to eventually emerge from this rotation, making him the one to stash where possible.

Steelers CB Ike Taylor will be out indefinitely after breaking his forearm in Sunday night's Week 3 win over the Panthers.

It's bad news for matchup-savvy fantasy owners as Taylor is a weekly target. Last year, he was PFF's No. 98 corner out of 110 qualifiers. Look for Taylor to head to short-term injured reserve and William Gay to take over at right corner in the meantime. Gay was PFF's No. 9 corner last season.

Lamar Miller rushed 15 times for 108 yards and caught 4-of-5 targets for 24 yards in the Dolphins' Week 3 loss to Kansas City.

Sunday's playcalling performance by Fins OC Bill Lazor was very disappointing. While Miller ripped off over seven yards per carry, Ryan Tannehill was head-scratchingly allowed to attempt 43 passes despite almost complete ineffectiveness. Tannehill averaged 4.8 yards per pass attempt. Lazor has a run-devoted background, so look for him to get this ratio corrected when the Dolphins take on the Raiders in London next week. As long as Knowshon Moreno is out -- and he's expected to miss at least three more games -- Miller will offer upside as a weekly RB2. Miller is now averaging 5.76 yards per carry on the season.

Emmanuel Sanders caught 11 passes for 149 yards in Sunday's Week 3 loss at Seattle.

Wes Welker returned from suspension, but Sanders still racked up 15 targets as the featured player in this offense. He repeatedly got open against the vaunted Legion of Boom, separating in man coverage and finding holes in zones. Sanders' target count is bound to take a hit as Demaryius Thomas picks it up and Welker gets more involved, but the ex-Steeler is here to stay as a WR2. He's earned the trust of Peyton Manning.

Marshawn Lynch rushed 26 times for 88 yards with a touchdown and caught three passes for 40 yards with another touchdown in the Seahawks' 26-20 overtime Week 3 win over the Broncos.

It was as memorable of a game as February's Super Bowl was forgettable. Peyton Manning forced overtime with an 80-yard touchdown plus 2-point drive and 59 seconds left in regulation. But he never got the ball in overtime, as Russell Wilson marched the Seahawks down the field and Lynch capped it with a 6-yard run. Lynch's first touchdown was a bit more out of the ordinary, as he lined up split wide and caught a slant from five yards out. Don't expect any more receiving days like this, but Lynch is a touchdown machine (four in three games so far this year, 44 in his last 50 regular season games). He'll face the Redskins following a Week 4 bye.
