Saints agreed to terms with WR Robert Meachem, formerly of the Chargers, on a one-year contract.

In theory, Meachem fills a need as the deep threat the Saints lost when Joe Morgan went down for the season, but to say his recent play has been discouraging would be an understatement. Going on 29, Meachem appears to have lost a good deal of his signature deep speed. He was so bad for the Chargers last season, they were willing to eat $5 million guaranteed and release him at final cuts. Perhaps reuniting with Sean Payton and Drew Brees will be what the doctor ordered, but never a fantasy dynamo even before his dismal 2012, Meachem is off the re-draft radar.

Luke Kuechly (concussion) returned to practice 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 healthy.

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.

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.

Theo Riddick (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

He's been battling the ankle "injury" for weeks now, but isn't in any danger of missing Week 14 against the Bears where he'll merely be a flex play.

Adrian Peterson (knee, I.R.) said he won't return this season if the Vikings are eliminated from playoff contention before he is ready.

Asked if he still plans to play this season, Peterson said, "That's something I envision." He's progressed to making cuts, and says he can pretty much do everything right now, though he admits it's different on a practice field than in game situations. Peterson isn't going to play this week against the Jaguars, but there have been whispers he could play as soon as Week 15.

Bucs OC Todd Monken said Jacquizz Rodgers will be in "a more expanded role" this week against the Saints.

Rodgers returned from a foot injury last week to run seven times for 29 yards and catch one pass for 21 yards. He was also playing late in the win over the Chargers, ahead of Doug Martin. We doubt Rodgers all of the sudden gets 12-plus touches, but he's worth stashing for the fantasy playoffs in case something happens to Martin. Martin is believed to be healthy right now.

Julio Jones (toe) is not practicing Wednesday.

Jones is battling turf toe. Coach Dan Quinn said Jones will likely play this week, but that's not a given. The Falcons don't necessarily need Jones in order to beat the lowly Rams and 49ers over the next two weeks.

Sammy Watkins (foot) is not practicing Wednesday.

It's not viewed as a setback. According to coach Rex Ryan, Watkins came out of Week 13 feeling better than he did after his Week 12 return. Look for him to return to practice Thursday before playing Sunday.

Robert Woods (knee) returned to a limited practice Wednesday.

He's missed the past two games after spraining his knee in Week 11. Woods' return will be a boost to the offense with the Bills is must-win mode on the outside looking in at the playoffs. This puts Woods on track for Week 14.

Jordan Matthews (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday.

Coach Doug Pederson expects Matthews to play against the Redskins after he missed the Week 13 blowout loss to the Bengals. Matthews will have to avoid setbacks, which he was unable to do last week, but he should be fine.
Dec 7 - 10:59 AM

Ryan Mathews (knee) returned to practice Wednesday.

Jordan Matthews (ankle) also returned. Mathews has missed the previous two games with a sprained MCL, but coach Doug Pederson expects him back this week. The Eagles' rushing offense has provided nothing in those two contests as they've been blown out by double-digits in both games.
