Dwayne Washington (ankle) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

Washington is on track to suit up as the Lions' primary early-down back against the Bears. With Washington at less than 100 percent, it's possible Zach Zenner gets more work than usual.
Dec 8 - 4:06 PM

Andrew Luck (shoulder) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

The Colts are just monitoring their quarterback's reps. Luck has a strong claim to No. 1 overall status in a jumbled week at quarterback.
Dec 8 - 4:03 PM

Jamison Crowder (hip) is practicing in full for Week 14.

Crowder tweaked his hip on the final play against the Cardinals, but he didn't miss a rep on Wednesday or Thursday. Crowder remains in the low-end WR2 mix.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Jamaal Charles (knee) is doing well in his recovery from knee surgery and hopes to be back for the playoffs.

It's a nice thought, but it's probably not going to happen. Charles has had two knee surgeries this year on top of the torn ACL that caused him to miss most of last season. It doesn't make much sense for the Chiefs to rush Charles back when he isn't even going to be the starter. If Charles does return this year, it will be as a change-of-pace option behind workhorse Spencer Ware. With all the injuries he's suffered over the years, it's fair to wonder how much Charles has left in the tank.
Dec 8 - 3:51 PM

Brandon LaFell (knee) was upgraded to "full" on Thursday.

LaFell will be fine for Sunday's game against the Browns. LaFell has re-established WR4 appeal since A.J. Green went down with injury.
Dec 8 - 3:33 PM

Updating an earlier report, Jordan Matthews (ankle) was upgraded to full at Thursday's practice.

There's no longer any doubt about his Week 14 status, not that there ever was. Matthews will be a WR3 Sunday in his return from a one-week ankle injury.
Dec 8 - 3:20 PM

Dorial Green-Beckham (oblique) remained sidelined Thursday.

DGB is looking unlikely to suit up against the Redskins, keeping Nelson Agholor in the mix opposite Jordan Matthews. DGB could be formally ruled out on Friday.
Dec 8 - 3:19 PM

Michael Thomas (foot) remained sidelined Thursday.

The Saints are arguably the league's most opaque team when it comes to injuries, but missing back-to-back practices is always an ominous sign. Thomas needs to get in at least a limited session on Friday to have a realistic shot at suiting up. Thomas will remain in the low-end WR1 mix if he can give it a go against Tampa. His absence would make Brandin Cooks a no-brainer WR1.
Dec 8 - 3:15 PM

Jordan Reed (shoulder) said he expects to play Week 14 against the Eagles.

We're not sure what to make of all this as ESPN's John Keim said Reed looked to be in "obvious pain" at Thursday's practice. Despite what Keim saw, Reed claims to have his full range of motion back and coach Jay Gruden said he "looked pretty good" on Thursday. This is shaping up as a classic game-time decision. Fortunately the Redskins play at 1 PM ET this week, so we'll know his status relatively early.
Dec 8 - 3:09 PM

Dolphins MLB Kiko Alonso (thumb, hamstring) was noncommittal about his status for Week 14 against the Cardinals.

"I don't know yet," said Alonso, who said he felt "good" at Thursday's practice. Alonso had surgery to repair a broken thumb earlier this week but said he's more concerned about his hamstring. Mike Hull would fill in at middle linebacker if Alonso can't get the green light for Sunday.
Dec 8 - 3:00 PM

Jets placed C Nick Mangold on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

It's just a formality as Mangold has already been ruled out for the rest of the season. Wesley Johnson will finish out the year at center for the Jets.
Dec 8 - 2:57 PM

Julius Thomas (back) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Thomas hasn't played since Week 11. Barring some a miracle, he won't be active this week. Ben Koyack and Neal Sterling have been sharing tight end responsibilities during his absence.
Dec 8 - 2:53 PM

Allen Hurns (hamstring) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Hurns hasn't played or practiced since injuring his hamstring in Week 12. All signs point to him missing another game. Even when healthy, Hurns has been a non-factor this year. His absence will open up more targets for Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee.
Dec 8 - 2:41 PM

Chris Ivory (hamstring) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

Coach Gus Bradley said Ivory will be a game-time decision this week, but he should get the green light as long as he can avoid setbacks. Ivory has only topped 50 rushing yards once this year and won't be more than a back-end RB3 in a tough matchup against the Vikings.
Dec 8 - 2:38 PM

The Dallas defense ended a four-game turnover drought in Week 13, but still register 26th in takeaways among NFL defenses.

The Cowboys recovered an Adam Thielen fumble for their first forced turnover since Week 8. The Cowboys D/ST has managed to produce double-digit fantasy points just once in 2016 thanks to the lack of takeaways, although the group does have the second-best run defense in the league. Even on 10 days of rest, the Cowboys D/ST will be a middle-tier fantasy option Sunday night on the road in an NFC East battle against the New York Giants.
