Lions agreed to terms on a five-year, $25 million deal with CB Chris Houston.

The first cornerback domino finally falls. Houston was clearly the Lions' top cover man last season, often used to shadow opposing No. 1 receivers. He's miscast in that role, but would be an excellent No. 2 corner if the Lions choose to add a legit shutdown guy via the free agency or the draft. Now that Houston has signed, the markets for Aqib Talib, Sean Smith, Brent Grimes and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie could develop quickly.

Ex-Colts, Broncos and Falcons TE Jacob Tamme has announced his retirement from the NFL after 10 seasons.

Tamme caught 22 passes in eight games for the Falcons last season, but couldn't generate any interest on the open market. He ended 2016 on injured reserve after undergoing shoulder surgery. Now 32, Tamme finishes his career with 259 grabs for 2,570 yards and 14 touchdowns. He played in Super Bowl XLVIII with the Broncos. He had a fine decade of football.

Jake Elliott (concussion) has resumed practicing in full.

Barring an unexpected setback, Elliott will be out there against the Bears. He's always an elite kicking option because of his big leg and place in a high-scoring offense.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Sterling Shepard (migraines) is unlikely to play Thursday evening against the Redskins.

Earlier Thursday, FOX's Jay Glazer reported there was a "slight possibility" Shepard suits up, but it has always appeared unlikely. It seems like we won't get final word until after pre-game warmups, but owners should plan on a Week 12 without their would-be WR2. Tavarres King, Roger Lewis and Travis Rudolph will serve as the Giants' "top three" receivers.

Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) returned to Broncos practice Thursday.

Wednesday was just a maintenance day. Even with the Broncos making yet another quarterback change, Sanders will remain in the WR2/3 mix against the Raiders' barely-there defense.

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports there is a "slight possibility" Sterling Shepard (migraines, game-time decision) plays Thursday night against the Redskins.

Shepard seemed highly unlikely to play after sitting out the final two practices of the week, but he apparently woke up feeling better on Wednesday and now has a shot to suit up. Still, he appears on the wrong side of questionable. If he can go, Shepard would be a solid WR2 play in a great matchup.

Jacoby Brissett (concussion) is practicing Thursday.

It is not a surprise after he got in a full practice Wednesday, but it is good to see he has not suffered any setbacks. He is fully expected to be cleared before Sunday's game against the Titans.

Bears placed OLB Leonard Floyd on injured reserve with a knee injury.

Howard Jones was promoted from the practice squad to take his place. Floyd was carted off the field with a knee injury Week 11. The Bears said he did not suffer any damage to his ACL, but he obviously is still dealing with a serious injury. Floyd finishes his sophomore campaign with 5.5 sacks in 10 games.
Nov 23 - 11:53 AM

Greg Olsen (foot, injured reserve) is practicing again Thursday.

Olsen remains on injured reserve, but he is almost certain to return this week after practicing Monday, Wednesday, and now Thursday. Even coming back from a serious injury, he will be a back-end TE1 in a good matchup against the Jets.
Nov 23 - 11:35 AM

Matt Forte (knee) returned to practice Thursday.

Forte was out on Wednesday, but he was able to get in some work and run some routes during practice on Thursday. He will almost certainly be listed as limited on the official report, but this does give him a chance to return against the Panthers. If he does, he will be in the FLEX conversation.
Nov 23 - 11:29 AM

Devonta Freeman (concussion) will practice on a limited basis Thursday.

Freeman remains in the concussion protocol, but this is a step in the correct direction after he was sidelined during Wednesday's practice. He is still questionable at best to face the Bucs, but he now at least has a shot. If Freeman cannot go, Tevin Coleman will once again have a workhorse role, this time in a better matchup.
Nov 23 - 11:20 AM

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith (groin, questionable) is expected to play Thursday against the Chargers.

Despite a questionable tag, Smith always seemed likely to return following a limited week of practice. His presence is a massive upgrade for the entire offense and a downgrade for the Chargers DST.
