NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reports Teddy Bridgewater is "throwing better than he was" before his knee injury.

Bridgewater has been setback-free over the last two weeks of practice. He’s expected to be active Sunday, but won’t start after a 15-month layoff. It’s a conservative move with Bridgewater close to fully healthy. The Vikings have four straight wins but are a limited offense with Case Keenum — a game-managing journeyman on an expiring deal. It’s possible Bridgewater regains his starting role in Week 11.

Coach Vance Joseph announced Paxton Lynch will start Week 12 against the Raiders.

It was reported Tuesday that this would be the decision out of Denver, and it's now official. The Broncos have lost six in a row and are in a complete free fall after Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler took turns seeing who could be worse at quarterback. We're not sure Lynch is any better, but he at least offers playmaking ability and upside and gets a cake matchup out of the gate against the Raiders' dreadful defense that just fired DC Ken Norton on Tuesday. Oakland has set an NFL record going 10 games in a row without an interception to start the season.

Coach Sean McDermott said Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is day to day and will not practice Wednesday.

Day to day seems to be the go-to for McDermott when talking injuries; he's been using it all year, even when it's been certain players will miss multiple games. Benjamin avoided damage to his ACL, but we'd consider him a long shot for Week 12 against the Chiefs. Jordan Matthews (knee) is expected back, and Zay Jones is healthy after injuring his knee back in Week 9.

Coach Sean McDermott announced Tyrod Taylor will start Week 12 against the Chiefs.

There was no way McDermott could have seriously gone back to rookie Nathan Peterman after he tossed five picks in the first half of his first NFL start last week against the Chargers and had to be yanked at halftime. If McDermott would have gone back to him, he would have risked mutiny from his players. Taylor deserves the job. He's on the fantasy radar this week against a below-average Chiefs defense, though it's important to note Taylor is much better at home than on the road, and Arrowhead Stadium is one of the more difficult environments.

Devonta Freeman remains in the concussion protocol.

ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure reports Freeman "feels ready to play," but the team is going to let the process play out. (Not that they have a choice.) This is Freeman's second concussion in the past four months. Tevin Coleman handled 21 touches against the Seahawks with Freeman out.

Jordan Reed (hamstring) missed Monday and Tuesday's practices ahead of Thursday's game against the Giants.

In other words, he's extremely unlikely to return on Thanksgiving. That sets up Vernon Davis for a huge game against the Giants' league-worst tight end defense. Always injured, Reed hasn't played since Week 8.

49ers GM John Lynch wouldn't commit to the 49ers starting Jimmy Garoppolo against the Seahawks in Week 12.

Lynch said that decision will be made by head coach Kyle Shanahan, though Garoppolo certainly doesn't seem like a lock to start, even after getting the bye week to familiarize himself with the team's playbook. "You guys obviously know what we think of Jimmy in terms of why we brought him here," said Lynch. "But we also think highly of C.J. [Beathard], enough to trade up to the third round to get him." Beathard is coming off his best game of the season against the Giants, though Garoppolo remains San Francisco's quarterback of the future. We'd still bet on Garoppolo starting at some point this year, but it may not happen for another week or two.

Seahawks waived DE Dwight Freeney.

Signed in late October, the 16-year veteran lasted four games in Seattle. Freeney tallied three sacks as a situational pass rusher, so it's a bit surprising he's being cut loose. 2017 is the longtime Colt's age-37 season. It's possible he gets a look elsewhere. Despite being a vested veteran, Freeney must go through waivers since it's after the trade deadline.

Patriots waived DE Cassius Marsh.

DE Eric Lee was signed in a corresponding roster move. Acquired from the Seahawks before Week 1, Marsh played 266 snaps over nine games, making one start. He tallied one sack. The No. 108 overall pick of the 2014 draft by the Seahawks, Marsh turned 25 in July.

Raiders fired DC Ken Norton Jr.

In many ways, Norton is the scapegoat for an underachieving team, but his firing is also completely justifiable. The Raiders have a league-low six takeaways, including an historic zero interceptions. No team has ever gone this late in the year without picking off a pass. Despite having reigning Defensive Player of the Year Khalil Mack up front, the Raiders are tied with the Giants for the fewest sacks (14). Opposing passers are posting a 113.3 QB rating when they face the Raiders. Something had to change. Ex-Chargers DC John Pagano is taking over.

Texans claimed RB Andre Ellington off waivers from the Cardinals.

The Texans needed help at running back after D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') was lost for the season. Averaging a healthy nine yards on 33 receptions, it remains surprising that Ellington was cut loose by the Cardinals. He should see immediate playing time for the Texans, and will help keep plodder Alfred Blue off the field behind Lamar Miller. What Ellington is unlikely to do is provide legitimate PPR value in the Texans' Tom Savage-led offense.
Nov 21 - 4:24 PM

Falcons waived CB Jalen Collins.

Collins was set to be activated from a 10-game PED ban, his second steroid suspension. Instead, the Falcons are moving on from the No. 42 overall pick of the 2015 draft. Still only 24, Collins played well down the stretch in 2016. Collins may clear waivers so teams don't have to pick up his contract, but he will undoubtedly get another chance.
