NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Seahawks CB Walter Thurmond will be suspended for games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Per RapSheet, Thurmond was not popped for performance-enhancing drugs like Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman last year. (They both used ADD medicine to enhance their in-game focus.) Thurmond has been Seattle's slot corner all year, and is starting with Browner shelved by a significant groin injury. Thurmond's loss is a major blow to a Seahawks defense that will now have to rely on its depth. They have Jeremy Lane and Byron Maxwell in reserve.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Reggie Bush (questionable, ankle) is not expected to play in Week 12.

Bush practiced on a limited basis this week, but still isn't ready to return from his ankle injury. Theo Riddick will continue to replace him as the Lions' passing down back, and is on the RB3/FLEX radar. Bush should have a decent chance of returning in Week 13. Joique Bell will be a mid-range RB2 against the Patriots.

ESPN Texans reporter Tania Ganguli said the chances Arian Foster (groin, questionable) plays Week 12 against the Bengals are "very, very low."

Foster did not practice on Thursday or Friday. The Texans are still calling Foster a "game-time decision," but every indication is Foster will miss his second straight game. Alfred Blue saw 36 carries as Foster's replacement Week 11. He will be a borderline RB1 against the Bengals' struggling run defense.

Lamar Miller is now fighting a knee injury in addition to the shoulder issue he's been battling.

Miller suffered a shoulder sprain back in Week 9, but got over it reasonably quickly and earned a "probable" tag ahead of Week 11. That appears to be on the back burner now as a mid-week knee injury is what has him listed "questionable." The good news is Miller got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, and stated he expects to play. The bad news is that Sunday's game at Denver is a 4:25pm ET start and the backup situation is murky. In Week 11, Daniel Thomas played 25 snaps and got five touches (all rushes). More talented Damien Williams played nine snaps and got two touches (all catches).

Arian Foster (groin) didn't practice on Friday and is listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Bengals.

Foster didn't practice on Thursday or Friday. The Texans continue to claim he'll be a "game-time decision," but at this point it would be a major surprise if he played. Look for Alfred Blue to continue to carry the mail in Houston's backfield. Jonathan Grimes will be the third-down and change-of-pace back.

FOX Sports' Mike Garofolo reports Jonas Gray was late to the Patriots' facility on Friday because he overslept.

Per Garofolo, Gray's "phone died," which he was ostensibly relying upon as an alarm. He drove straight to Gillette Stadium, but was promptly sent home by the Patriots' coaching staff. Garofolo reports Gray has texted teammates to apologize, including Tom Brady. He is "hoping" to get Bill Belichick to hear his side of the story "this afternoon." We wish young Jonas the best of luck.

Adrian Peterson's suspension appeal hearing has been scheduled for December 2.

His appeal will be heard by Harold Henderson, not Roger Goodell. Henderson also heard Josh Gordon's suspension appeal, which resulted in a ten-game ban as opposed to a full-season ban. Perhaps this creates a glimmer of hope Peterson will play in a few games late in the season. After December 2, the Vikings face the Jets in Week 14, the Lions in Week 15, and the Dolphins in fantasy title week.

ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss reports Jonas Gray was not permitted to practice on Friday because he showed up late to the Patriots' facility.

Uh oh. The Patriots are a zero-tolerance team when it comes to matters like this, and for as great as Gray was in fantasy football last week, he is a replaceable player. That is especially the case after New England signed LeGarrette Blount to a two-year deal on Thursday. Gray's usage for Week 12 against the Lions is now entirely uncertain. Blount could steal his role.

Julius Thomas (ankle, questionable) is expected to be a game-day decision in Week 12.

Thomas "appeared a limited participant" in Friday's practice. "If I can go, I will go," Thomas said Thursday. Our guess at this stage of the week is that Orange Julius will be held out, but that's pure speculation. Ultimately, the Broncos are unlikely to decide on Thomas' availability until a few hours before kickoff. Broncos-Dolphins has 4:25PM ET start, creating a trick situation in fantasy football. Thomas owners would be smart to grab Jacob Tamme.

According to the Denver Post, "all signs point toward" Emmanuel Sanders playing Sunday versus Miami.

He's officially listed as probable. Sanders returned to practice Friday and has cleared all of the necessary hurdles the NFL has designed for players coming off concussions. Cody Latimer and Andre Caldwell can be safely dropped if they were added as speculative stashes in fantasy leagues. The status of Julius Thomas (ankle) is expected to come down to a game-time decision. Sanders could get more targets if Thomas doesn't play.

Jordan Cameron (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 12 at Atlanta.

The good news is he practiced and is making progress. The bad news is the few fantasy owners who've continued to roster Cameron through his injury-plagued year will not have him available in a favorable matchup. Cameron does seem to be on track to return for Week 13, although that's not a guarantee. We'll have several updates on his chances of playing next week.
Nov 21 - 1:28 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) missed his third straight practice Friday.

As expected. Fitzgerald is dealing with a relatively severe MCL sprain and will try to play Sunday, although there's a very good chance he'd be doing so at significantly less than 100 percent. He's someone to avoid in fantasy.
