Duke Johnson (personal) returned to practice Friday.

Johnson was reportedly gone the last two days to tend to a personal family matter. With him returning to the club Friday, he should play Week 14.

DeSean Jackson (thumb) did not practice Friday.

Jackson hasn't practiced all week, likely elevating Chris Godwin into another start against Baltimore's daunting secondary on Sunday. Despite the poor matchup, Godwin's 10 targets sans Jackson in Week 14 keep him as a strong usage-based bounce-back WR2. Adam Humphries will continue manning (and having the higher floor of the two) in the slot.

Keke Coutee (hamstring) won't play in Week 15 against the Jets.

Coutee was downgraded mid-week and won't travel with the team. DeAndre Hopkins has played three games without Will Fuller (torn ACL, IR) and Coutee since Week 9, amassing an exquisite team-high 37% target share in those contests. Hopkins is the only matchup-proof option worth playing in Houston's low-volume passing game.

Isaiah Crowell (foot) was placed on injured reserve, ending his 2018 season.

New York will move forward with second-year pro Elijah McGuire, sixth-round rookie Trenton Cannon, and practice squad call-up and ex-Broncos RB De'Angelo Henderson manning their backfield to close out the year. Crowell was a formidable scoring option for the Jets, having hit pay dirt six times this season, but ultimately recorded a majority of his rushing yardage (685) in his Week 5 219-yard explosive against the Broncos. It's possible the Jets simply move on from Crowell in the offseason after inking him for $12 million in 2018.

Coach Doug Pederson said Carson Wentz (back) is questionable for Week 14 against the Rams.

"He has a stress injury, this thing has involved over time and it requires zero surgery to heal," Pederson said. With the team's playoff hopes still (just barely) alive, it's possible Wentz plays through injury. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport added that Wentz will travel with the team, but backup Nick Foles is still expected to start. As it stands, consider Wentz a long shot to suit up against the Rams Sunday night. Owners should have a backup plan.

Keenan Allen (hip) did not return to the Chargers' Week 15 win over the Chiefs after going down in the first half.

Allen was injured with 10:37 remaining in the second quarter. He briefly returned but was not seen again after halftime. If there is good news, it's that Allen did spend the second half on the sideline. Seriously injured players do not do that. Allen has 10 days to heal up for next week's all-important home date with the Ravens.

Damien Williams rushed 10 times for 49 yards and two touchdowns in the Chiefs' Week 15 loss to the Chargers, adding six receptions for 74 additional yards.

If you spent the rest of your FAAB budget on the Chiefs' third No. 1 running back, congratulations. He probably just won you your semifinals matchup. The Chiefs ran just 53 plays on a night with weird game flow, otherwise Williams would have racked up even more work. He showed some shake and bake on an early 22-yard run and looked springy for most of the affair. He was more than capable of holding down the fort in Spencer Ware's absence. Ware (shoulder, hamstring) would seem to have a decent shot at returning in Week 16, which would throw the Chiefs' backfield into full-blown chaos from a fantasy perspective.

Mike Williams caught 7-of-9 targets for 76 yards and two touchdowns in the Chargers' 29-28, Week 15 win over the Chiefs, adding a 19-yard touchdown rush and game-sealing two-point conversion.

Williams was simply everywhere this evening, almost single-handedly willing the Chargers to victory after Keenan Allen was lost for the night with a hip injury in the first half. Williams' first score was a perfectly-placed ball from Philip Rivers where Williams displayed strong hands in the end zone. No. 2 was a rush where Williams took a toss, shed the Chiefs' contain and hit the hole like a running back. No. 3 came with four seconds remaining and was controversial because Williams slightly juggled the ball going out of bounds. He also appeared to get away with a pushoff one play earlier that instead resulted in a Chiefs DPI. For his final act, Williams was left all alone to catch the game-winning two-point conversion. Williams gets to follow up his dominant effort with a tough Week 16 home matchup with the Ravens.
Dec 13 - 11:49 PM

Patrick Mahomes completed 24-of-34 passes for 243 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Chiefs' 29-28, Week 15 loss to the Chargers.

The Chiefs went up 28-14 with 8:15 remaining but could only watch as Philip Rivers rallied the Bolts to a stunning road victory. (The refs, who were omnipresent all night, helped out.) With the Chargers dominating time of possession, the Chiefs could never quite seem to get in rhythm even though Mahomes engineered four separate touchdown drives. Mahomes missed a few more throws than usual, but he also supplied his usual highlight reel passes, including an 11-yard first quarter touchdown to Demarcus Robinson where he initially appeared to be throwing the ball away. Mahomes also attempted a(nother) left-handed pass but could not get the conversion. Looking like a man who is missing Sammy Watkins and Kareem Hunt, Mahomes has 10 days to get ready for the Chiefs' now critical Week 16 road trip to Seattle.
Dec 13 - 11:39 PM

Philip Rivers completed 26-of-38 passes for 313 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Chargers' 29-28, Week 15 win over the Chiefs.

The Chargers went down 28-14 with 8:15 remaining but rallied to stun the Chiefs in a stadium that's been their Waterloo. Rivers connected with Mike Williams with :04 remaining, and the Bolts went for two instead of kicking the extra point. Williams was then left all alone to catch the game-sealing conversion. Rivers' night got off to a nightmarish start, as he tossed a ghastly pair of first half picks. Under constant duress, he took five sacks. The Chargers now head home to face the Ravens before traveling to Denver in Week 17. Both Kansas City and Los Angeles are 11-3, but the Chiefs currently hold the tiebreaker (division record).
Dec 13 - 11:38 PM

Doug Baldwin (hip) returned to limited practice Thursday.

It gives Baldwin a chance to return after missing Week 14. Another limited session on Friday would have Baldwin on track to play against the 49ers, whom he went 2/22/1 against two weeks ago.
Dec 13 - 8:10 PM

Speaking with The Athletic's Calvin Watkins, Amari Cooper said it was Raiders owner Mark Davis who wanted to trade him, not coach Jon Gruden.

This is a hard one to decipher. It's possible Davis was just falling on Gruden's sword so as not to make the coach the bad guy. It will also fuel the somewhat persistent rumors that the Raiders are having "cash flow" issues, which remains nearly impossible to believe for an NFL franchise. Although Cooper has blown up for the Cowboys, trading him was not an indefensible decision. With GM Reggie McKenzie recently forced out, Gruden and Davis are an uninspiring duo to have trying to turn around a team.
