Dolphins declared RB Damien Williams, QB Matt Moore, CB Cordrea Tankersley, OG Isaac Asiata, G/T Jermon Bushrod, DE Cameron Malveaux, and TE AJ Derby inactive for Week 14 against the Patriots.

Williams was already ruled out with a shoulder issue, and Tankersley has ankle and shoulder injuries. Kenyan Drake will remain a volume-driven RB2.

Patriots declared RB Mike Gillislee, RT Marcus Cannon, DE Trey Flowers, OLB Kyle Van Noy, S Brandon King, LB David Harris, and OL Cole Croston inactive for Week 14 against the Dolphins.

Gillislee was listed questionable with an illness but has long been out of the plans.
Dec 11 - 7:10 PM

Dion Lewis (illness) is active Week 14 against the Dolphins.

Lewis was limited in practice but was never in real danger of sitting this one out. He ran for 112 yards on 15 carries when these two teams linked up two weeks back. Lewis should continue to be treated as an RB2 with upside.
Dec 11 - 7:08 PM

Chris Hogan (shoulder) is active for Monday night's Week 14 game against the Dolphins.

Dion Lewis (illness) and Stephon Gilmore (ankle) are also both active after all three were listed questionable. Hogan is expected to play "a lot" after missing the past several weeks with a shoulder issue. He should immediately be reinserted as a WR1 in fantasy lineups. Brandin Cooks remains one.

Coach Jack Del Rio announced OC Todd Downing will remain with the Raiders the remainder of the season.

Ex-OC Bill Musgrave was let go at the end of last season, as the Raiders failed to even make him an offer as a free agent coach. The move was made in order to promote Downing, who was believed to be a riser in the coaching ranks. His first season running the show in Oakland has been a total disaster. Derek Carr has taken multiple steps back and looks like one of the most overpaid players in the league, while Amari Cooper has been a non-factor most weeks. Oakland is 19th in total offense, 15th in passing, and 26th in rushing. Downing may be one-and-done, with Del Rio possibly on the hot seat as well.

Donte Moncrief (ankle) remained sidelined at Monday's practice.

Moncrief missed all of last week's practices and sat out the blizzard game in Buffalo on Sunday. The Colts play Thursday night. Moncrief looks doubtful.

Seahawks rookie DT Malik McDowell was arrested for disorderly conduct in Atlanta over the weekend.

McDowell was booked following a dispute over a bar tab outside an area nightclub. McDowell issued an apology, and coach Pete Carroll said the rookie was "remorseful." McDowell remains out indefinitely with a concussion and head injuries following an ATV accident over the summer after the draft.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Carson Wentz will undergo ACL surgery "within a couple days," and Dr. James Andrews anticipates Wentz being sidelined 9-12 months.

Per Mortensen, Andrews hasn't spoken directly with Wentz, but the noted orthopedic specialist said expectations need to be tempered for ACL recoveries, saying repairs need 9-12 months. Wentz is almost certain to start next summer's training camp on active/PUP with a chance he misses the start of the season. The Eagles will roll with Nick Foles the remainder of the 2017 season.

Broncos signed TE Matt LaCosse off the Giants' practice squad.

LaCosse was an offseason favorite among Giants beat writers in New York, but he never actually did anything in real games. The Broncos are in constant search of tight end help. They curiously gave up on AJ Derby earlier this year.
Dec 11 - 5:29 PM

Broncos placed RG Ronald Leary (back) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Leary was a successful signing by GM John Elway, earning positive grades from Pro Football Focus for both his pass and run blocking. Unfortunately, he couldn't overcome a back injury that kept him out of Weeks 13-14. The Broncos are expected to give Connor McGovern a stretch-run look at right guard.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy remained noncommittal on Monday when asked about Aaron Rodgers' (collarbone) Week 15 availability.

McCarthy said he's expecting a final decision to come from team Dr. Pat McKenzie on Tuesday. "In (Rodgers') mind, he's ready to go if you watch him process," said McCarthy. "But this is a medical decision. Dr. McKenzie is in touch with a number of medical experts." Rodgers underwent a CT scan on Monday, and doctors are still evaluating the results. Rodgers has reportedly impressed in practice, but he won't be cleared to play until his collarbone has fully healed.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero's "understanding" is that Chris Hogan (shoulder) will play "a lot" Monday night in Miami.

Pelissero cautioned Hogan may not play his usual, full complement of snaps, but it does sound like he'll be involved in most three-receiver formations along with Brandin Cooks and Danny Amendola. The Pats need Hogan in the red zone; despite so much missed time, Hogan is still tied with Rob Gronkowski for the team lead in targets inside the ten-yard line (7). Gronk, of course, is out tonight.
Dec 11 - 4:47 PM

Chargers RB Andre Williams (wrist surgery) is done for the season.

Williams has been playing special teams while operating as the Chargers' No. 4 running back behind Melvin Gordon, Austin Ekeler, and Branden Oliver.
Dec 11 - 4:30 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey confirmed Monday that Marcus Mariota's knee injury is not serious.

Mariota suffered some sort of mild knee sprain in Sunday's loss to Arizona, but he never missed a snap and is expected to practice on Wednesday. In both fantasy and real life, Mariota has been one of the NFL's biggest 2017 disappointments regardless of injuries. The Titans badly need an influx of fresh-thinking coaching talent, but Mike Mularkey will probably return in 2018 because 8-5 Tennessee has a good won-loss record.
Dec 11 - 4:08 PM

Vikings LT Riley Reiff's (ankle) Week 15 availability is uncertain.

Coach Mike Zimmer said the Vikings got better news than expected on Reiff's injury, but wouldn't commit to Reiff suiting up for Sunday's tilt with Cincinnati. Although Reiff has been far from impenetrable on Case Keenum's blind side, he has allowed just two sacks on the year as part of the Vikings' O-Line turnaround.
