ESPN's Ed Werder reports the "current expectation" is owner Jerry Jones will fire head coach Jason Garrett if the Cowboys fail to make the playoffs.

The Cowboys need to win out to qualify for the postseason. Specifically, Werder writes Garrett is expected to be axed "unless the Cowboys win NFC East, make playoffs." Garrett's 7-7 team closes out the season at Washington, and at home versus Philadelphia in Week 17. Dallas has collapsed defensively on a weekly basis, and struggled to establish a week-to-week identity on offense.

Fred Jackson is active for Monday night's game against the Jets.

He was listed as questionable with a groin injury. F-Jax's workload is unclear, but we suspect he'll end up playing the most snaps in Buffalo's backfield. The Bills' inactives are FB Frank Summers, WR Marquise Goodwin, TE MarQuies Gray, OT Cyrus Kouandjio, DL Jarius Wynn, DE Bryan Johnson, and LB Randell Johnson.

Chiefs placed SS Eric Berry on the reserve/non-football illness list, ending his season.

Per ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher, the team believes Berry has lymphoma. If so, it's a scary time for Berry and his family. It's also a huge loss for the Chiefs, who may have to reinsert Marcus Cooper as a starting corner after moving Ron Parker from safety the past few weeks. The fifth overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft, Berry turns 26 in December. This is his contract year.

Reggie Bush (ankle) was limited in Monday's practice.

It's just an approximation, as Detroit didn't actually practice ahead of Thursday's game against the Bears. Profootballtalk reported Sunday that Bush is targeting Turkey Day for his return, but Bush has been wildly inaccurate with his own injury predictions in the past. For now, he should be considered no better than 50-50 to suit up on Thanksgiving. If he does, he'll be a middling FLEX play.

Robert Griffin III will remain the Redskins' starter for Week 13.

Speaking Monday, coach Jay Gruden said he had "every intent" to start RGIII against the Colts. RGIII was positively dreadful in Sunday's loss to the 49ers, but received little help from his teammates, particularly his offensive line. Nevertheless, 11 completions for 106 yards is not acceptable at the NFL level, and Griffin will be at risk of in-game benchings for the rest of the season. Even in a potentially high-scoring game with the Colts, RGIII will be a high-risk QB2.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Browns FS Tashaun Gipson has been diagnosed with a torn MCL, and is done for the regular season.

Specifically, he'll be sidelined 6-8 weeks. Per Rapsheet, Gipson has avoided ACL damage, however, and could return for the postseason if the Browns elect to hold him off injured reserve. It's a huge blow for 7-4 Cleveland, as Gipson's six interceptions lead the league. Gipson has graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 3 safety. Jim Leonhard and Jordan Poyer are the next men up on the depth chart.

The Houston Chronicle reports Ryan Mallett (pectoral) is done for the season.

Brutal. Mallett waited over three years for his chance to become an NFL starter, and it ends after two games, only one of which he was healthy for. Mallett's reward for playing hurt in Sunday's loss was 60 minutes of bad film heading into the open market. It's unclear if the Texans will turn back to Ryan Fitzpatrick, or perhaps go into full-on evaluation mode with fourth-round rookie Tom Savage. Heading into his age-27 season as a statue-esque pocket passer with only 79 career throws, Mallett is going to be a strange case in free agency.

Vikings WR Charles Johnson played on 67-of-69 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Packers.

Even with Greg Jennings (ribs) and Jarius Wright (hamstring) active, Johnson was a full-time player. It's an exciting revelation for a player we've long been tracking because he goes 6'2/217 and runs a 4.38. Over the last two weeks, Johnson has totaled 9-139-1 on a team-high 18 targets, emerging as the No. 1 receiver for Teddy Bridgewater. Johnson makes for an intriguing deeper-league streamer in a home game against the Panthers' weak corner corps in Week 13. Jennings is done, Patterson is far too raw and Wright is a sub-average player that's been passed on the depth chart.

Odell Beckham had 10 catches for 146 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 12 loss to Dallas.

Beckham made a highlight one-handed 43-yard touchdown over Cowboys CB Brandon Carr in the second quarter. He easily won one-on-one matchups, and was able to get open against double teams. Beckham was targeted a team-high 11 times, but briefly exited in the fourth quarter with a back injury. He's now posted 90-plus yards in four straight weeks and is averaging at least seven catches since entering the starting lineup. Beckham will be a top-ten receiver play in Week 13 and has a favorable rest-of-season schedule with games against Jacksonville, Tennessee, and Washington.

Texans QB Ryan Mallett played through an injured right pectoral muscle during Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Bengals.

Mallett suffered the potentially season-ending injury in warmups, perhaps explaining his erratic play against the Browns. He's headed for an MRI and if it shows a tear, the chance he's been awaiting for so long is over. The Houston Chronicle is already suggesting that Ryan Fitzpatrick is "likely back" for the foreseeable future, although we wouldn't be shocked if the Texans turned to fourth-round rookie Tom Savage. Bill O'Brien has seen Fitzpatrick's ceiling and hit his head on it.

Demaryius Thomas caught 10-of-13 targets for 87 yards and three touchdowns in Denver's Week 12 win over the Dolphins.

With Peyton Manning struggling with his deep-ball accuracy and the Dolphins trying to keep everything underneath, Thomas got to work on short-to-intermediate routes, and scored his seventh, eighth and ninth touchdowns of the season, none of which went for more than 14 yards. Thomas is now the owner of a ridiculous 82/1,192/9 line with five games to go.
Nov 23 - 8:01 PM

Larry Fitzgerald's knee sprain is not responding as the Cardinals had hoped.

Coach Bruce Arians conceded that Fitzgerald "couldn't run" during pregame warmups. It's not overly surprising considering he sustained a Grade 2 MCL sprain in Week 11, which is often a multi-week injury. We'd consider Fitz very questionable for Week 13 at Atlanta, which makes impressive rookie John Brown a must-add. Brown had 3-61-0 at Seattle Sunday and has shown an ability to do much more in plus matchups.
