Latest Headlines

A source tells the Boston Herald that Rob Gronkowski will indeed need a fourth operation on his forearm.

The fourth procedure will be to remove the plate that's securing the broken bone in Gronk's troublesome left forearm. If the following tests show that the infection has been completely flushed out, then a new plate will be put in and the recovery will begin. In that scenario, Gronk will almost certainly be ready for Week 1. The concern is that if there are still signs of the infection, he'll need a fifth surgery. In that case, the Herald says Gronkowski's "participation for the start of the season and perhaps beyond would be in jeopardy."

Packers OLB Nick Perry (hand) could miss the rest of the season.

He suffered what coach Mike McCarthy called a "significant" left hand injury and has already had surgery on it. The injury occurred in the first half of Sunday's win over Houston. He returned to the game with a large cast on his hand but only lasted a few plays. Perry has never played a full season since arriving in the league in 2012.

Michael Thomas (foot) didn't practice Wednesday.

It's a surprise after Thomas played the entire game last week. There's not going to be many updates on Thomas with this being the Saints. Thomas is a borderline WR1 if he plays against the Bucs.

Updating a previous item, Theo Riddick missed Wednesday's practice with a wrist injury.

Riddick has been missing practice time for the past several weeks. As of now, there's little concern about his Week 14 availability, but we'll have to check back in on him Thursday. Riddick will be an RB3 if he plays Sunday.

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports the Browns plan to start Robert Griffin III against the Bengals.

Coming out of the bye week, coach Hue Jackson refused to name a starter after Wednesday's practice, a practice in which all four of RGIII, Josh McCown, Cody Kessler, and Kevin Hogan took snaps. Signs have pointed to Griffin getting the start for the past couple weeks. He does very little to move the needle from a fantasy standpoint, but Terrelle Pryor's floor remains safe.

Jeremy Maclin (groin) was removed from the Week 14 injury report and will play Thursday night against the Raiders.

It's unclear what kind of role Maclin will have after missing four weeks, but there's been no indication he'll be on any sort of snap count. Look for Maclin to see his customary 5-8 targets, which takes some air out of the balloon for Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill. Treat Maclin as a WR4 coming off a long layoff.

Marquess Wilson (groin) did not practice Wednesday.

Neither did Eddie Royal (toe), leaving Josh Bellamy and Cameron Meredith as the Bears' top two receivers with Daniel Brown at tight end. The Bears are going to ride Jordan Howard as hard as they can the final four weeks.
Dec 7 - 3:06 PM

Trevor Siemian (foot) returned to a limited practice Wednesday.

Paxton Lynch was an utter disaster once again in last week's spot start against the Jaguars. He and Siemian split the reps Wednesday, putting Siemian on track to return this week against the Titans. He won't be a fantasy option on the road, but Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas will get a boost.

Coach Gary Kubiak said Justin Forsett will play Week 14 against the Titans and "split" the running back work with Devontae Booker.

Forsett was just claimed off waivers on Monday, but he knows Kubiak's offense after playing for him with the Texans earlier in his career. Booker has averaged a pitiful 2.80 YPC in the five games since taking over as the Broncos' starter, and it appeared Kapri Bibbs was getting set to overtake him before landing on I.R. earlier this week. Neither back is a great Week 14 fantasy option.
Dec 7 - 2:53 PM

Luke Kuechly (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.

Kuechly has missed the Panthers' past two games after suffering a concussion in the Week 11 Thursday night game against the Saints. Kuechly's concussion was one of the scarier ones, but he seems to be on his way back.

The Tampa Bay Times' Greg Auman believes Doug Martin is still the Bucs' "primary" running back heading into Week 14 against the Saints.

Martin sat out the final three drives of last week's win over the Chargers, suggesting he may have some sort of injury or possibly was simply losing work to Jacquizz Rodgers. But Martin practiced on Wednesday and is fine. OC Todd Monken said Rodgers has earned an "expanded role" after his Week 13 performance, but we doubt that actually translates to a bunch more work. Charles Sims (knee) will also be activated off I.R. in time for Sunday's game, but he figures to see most of his work as a pass catcher with the Bucs' wide receiver depth chart shredded by injuries. Martin remains a strong RB2 with a floor of around 15 carries in a plus spot.
Dec 7 - 2:15 PM

Jordan Reed (shoulder) participated in individual drills Wednesday.

According to ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim, Reed caught passes with both hands, showing no discomfort. But once the Redskins got into one-on-one and team drills, Reed was an observer from the sideline. We likely won't know Reed's Week 14 status against the Eagles until later in the week.
