Raiders TE David Ausberry (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Ausberry has been sidelined since the second preseason game and should be considered questionable, at best, for Week 3. The Raiders will go with Mychal Rivera and Jeron Mastrud at tight end.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) is "preparing to play" Week 15 against the Panthers.

Rodgers was medically cleared to return to the field late Tuesday night and should be under center Sunday against the Panthers. Brett Hundley had some flashes in Rodgers' absence but was more bad than good, and Rodgers' return gives the 7-6 Packers a shot to sneak into the playoffs. The schedule won't be easy, particularly starting this week in Charlotte against the Panthers.

Kyle Rudolph (ankle) is in a walking boot after getting hurt late in Week 14.

Rudolph missed the final handful of plays last week against the Panthers and looks to be in jeopardy of missing Week 15 against the Bengals. Rudolph has been scoring at will of late, but his targets have been down the past few weeks. If he sits, David Morgan and Blake Bell are next up at tight end.

Joe Mixon remains in the league's concussion protocol Wednesday.

Mixon was concussed nine days ago and missed Week 14. Giovani Bernard got the start in his absence and played 85.2% of the snaps while turning 17 touches into 130 scoreless yards. If he gets another start this week, it will be a tough road test against the Vikings' top-notch defense. Bernard will be a volume-dependent RB2, but expectations would need to be tempered.

Coach Jim Caldwell said he expects Ameer Abdullah (neck) to return Week 15 against the Bears.

"I do, as long as things keep trending in the right direction," Caldwell said. The Lions and Bears kick off the early Saturday game at 4:30 ET. Abdullah's return will make none of the Lions' running backs attractive fantasy plays.

Zach Ertz has cleared the league's concussion protocol and will practice Wednesday.

Ertz was said to be making steady progress late last week but was still dealing with headaches over the weekend and had to sit out the Week 14 thriller against the Rams. Trey Burton had a huge game in Ertz's absence but will be sent back to backup duties with Ertz healthy. Ertz will remain a TE1, even in the absence of Carson Wentz (knee). He gets a date against the Giants next.

Leonard Fournette (quad) will not practice Wednesday.

The quad thing is a new issue for Fournette, who never seems to be 100% healthy. The rookie rebounded last week with 101 yards and a score in a home win over the Seahawks, but he'd been struggling a bit the previous month. Fournette is fighting through small nicks and bruises and ultimately should play Sunday against Houston, though it's obviously something to monitor moving forward. Remember when Fournette said the NFL was easier than college?

Kelvin Benjamin (knee) will be limited in Wednesday's practice.

Benjamin predictably hurt his troublesome knee playing in the Buffalo blizzard last week. It doesn't sound like he was any worse for the wear than normal, giving Benjamin a chance to suit up this week against the Dolphins.

Tyrod Taylor (knee) is practicing Wednesday.

Nathan Peterman is in the concussion protocol after last week's win over the Colts. Per coach Sean McDermott, Taylor remains the starter when healthy, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports it's likely going to be Taylor under center against Miami. Taylor is getting the starter's reps Wednesday.

Both Gerald McCoy and the Bucs are hoping he can play through his Week 14 biceps injury.

Three days after the injury, we've yet to see concrete word on what the plan is moving forward with McCoy. He injured his right biceps last Sunday, and it's the one he tore in 2011. McCoy is likely dealing with some sort of strain, which is technically a tear. He admitted he was essentially playing with one arm last week, so it's hard to envision McCoy being dominant the final three games.

Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) announced he's been medically cleared to return.

"It's been a long road from that day to this, but I'm happy to say I've been medically cleared to return," Rodgers announced Tuesday night. "Thanks for all the love, support, prayers, and well wishes over the past 8 weeks." Rodgers' Week 15 status had been up in the air earlier in the day, but this seems to point to him being under center against the Panthers this week. The 7-6 Packers have treaded water in Rodgers' absence and now have a chance to run the table and get into the playoffs with arguably the league's best passer back in action. Jordy Nelson also gets a huge boost back up the receiver ranks with Rodgers back. Davante Adams remains a WR2. The Vikings and Lions are on the schedule after Carolina.

Redskins placed RB Byron Marshall on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ending his season.

TE Jordan Reed and LB Chris Carter have also been sent to injured reserve. Chris Thompson's fill-in as the Redskins' pass-catching back, Marshall injured his hamstring on a Week 14 kick return. Marshall averaged a modest seven touches in two healthy games in place of Thompson. A second-year UDFA, Marshall will have to work to crack someone's 53-man roster in 2018.
