Giants placed RB David Wilson on injured reserve with a herniated disc in his neck, ending his season.

The Giants announced on Monday that Wilson had made "significant improvement," but he wasn't going to improve to the point that he could help in the next two months. ESPN reported Thursday that Wilson is expected to avoid surgery, and make a "full recovery." It's a bitterly disappointing end to what was expected to be a breakout season for the 2012 first-rounder, but Wilson should get every opportunity to claim the Giants' starting job next summer. Still only 22, he remains a strong hold in Dynasty leagues despite his rocky first two seasons.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Marqise Lee (ankle) is expected to return "by the playoffs or sooner."

Lee suffered a sprained ankle Week 15 against the Texans. Despite the good news, it does not seem likely he is ready to face the 49ers on Sunday. Unless Allen Hurns (ankle) makes a surprise return, Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole will be the Jaguars' top two receivers in San Francisco.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Tom Savage (concussion) may miss the rest of the season.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported it is likely Savage sits out the rest of the season after suffering a nasty concussion in Week 14, and O'Brien admitted it is a possibility during Monday's press conference. T.J. Yates will continue to start while Savage is sidelined.

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said he has yet to decide who will start at quarterback this week.

Brock Osweiler played well in relief of Trevor Siemian last week, but Joseph admitted they "want to see Paxton [Lynch] play some" to close out the season. If Lynch's ankle injury allows him to suit up this weekend -- he is expected to practice on Wednesday -- he will almost certainly be the one under center against the Redskins. Lynch was awful in his only other start this season before being forced from the game by the ankle injury. No matter who starts, Washington will be a good DST option this week.

Broncos placed Trevor Siemian (shoulder) on injured reserve.

This was expected after Siemian dislocated his shoulder last Thursday night. Unfortunately, this was the only quarterback news out of Denver on Monday as coach Vance Joseph said he has yet to decide who will start the final two games. Following a promising debut last season, Siemian took a big step back in his third year. The Broncos need to find a better answer at the position this offseason.

Browns coach Hue Jackson did not commit to starting DeShone Kizer the final two games of the season.

Kizer was dreadful against the Ravens and committed three bad turnovers including his sixth red-zone interception of the season, which "leads" the league. Jackson has said Kizer will finish the season as the starter, but he left the door open for a benching after the game. "If the best decision is to move forward in a different direction, we will," Jackson said. "At the same time, I want him to finish this if he can. We will see." The coach also said he thinks it "is a fair question if [Kizer] will ever get it," which unfortunately is not the worst thing Cleveland's power structure has said to the media about their players in the last week. The Browns travel to Chicago on Sunday before ending their likely 0-16 season in Pittsburgh.

Aaron Jones played 26-of-70 (37 percent) snaps Week 15 against the Panthers.

Jones had not played more than eight snaps since returning from injury, so this was a big step in the correct direction. Jones also out-rushed Jamaal Williams despite seeing seven fewer carries. That said, he will be impossible to trust in a tough matchup against the Vikings in the fantasy Super Bowl.

Ameer Abdullah played 8-of-63 (13 percent) snaps Week 15 against the Bears.

Theo Riddick led the backfield with 33 snaps despite leaving early with a wrist injury, and Tion Green (23 snaps) took over from there. The Lions will not say it, but it is clear Abdullah has been benched, and it looks like Green will be the back to own if Riddick's injury ends up being serious. Abdullah can be sent to the wire in redraft leagues.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Patriots believe Rex Burkhead suffered a sprained knee Week 15 against the Steelers.

Burkhead is also reportedly dealing with a bruise. An MRI on Monday will confirm the diagnosis, but a sprained knee would match reports from Sunday of Burkhead avoiding a serious injury. Still, he is likely done for the regular season. Dion Lewis should handle the bulk of the backfield work with Burkhead sidelined while James White and perhaps even Mike Gillislee could see their roles expand.

Ezekiel Elliott has completed his six-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Elliott is expected to report to the team on Monday, and it would be a shock if he is not back in the lineup against the Seahawks on Christmas Eve. It is great news for a Cowboys team which is still in the playoff hunt and any fantasy teams which managed to survive Elliott's absence. Considering what Todd Gurley did to the Seahawks on Sunday, Elliott could have a big day in his return.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Rex Burkhead has avoided an ACL tear and serious knee injury.

It sounds like Burkhead and the Patriots have caught another break this Sunday. Per Schefter, Burkhead could miss some time, but it doesn't seem to be something that will keep Burkhead out for an extended period. Burkhead should be okay to return for a playoff run for the 11-3 Patriots. In the meantime, Dion Lewis and James White will handle backfield duties sans Burkhead.

Panthers owner Jerry Richardson has announced he is selling the team after allegations of misconduct surfaced against him on Friday.

The Panthers will be put on the block at the end of the season. In a five-paragraph statement announcing the move, Richardson made no mention of the allegations against him, which include wide-ranging sexual misconduct and the use of a racial slur against a former Panthers scout. Richardson, 81, has owned the Panthers since their founding, and is the only current owner to have actually played in the NFL. It's unclear how voluntary Richardson's decision is. It's quite possible things would have unfolded similarly to the Donald Sterling Clippers fiasco in the NBA had Richardson not agreed to give up the team.
