The Kansas City Star's Lynn Worthy says its "unlikely" that Kelvin Benjamin will play an extended amount in the Week 15 game against the Chargers.

Benjamin has only been in the building for one week and the Chiefs haven't guaranteed that Benjamin will be active on Thursday. If he does suit up, beat reporters don't expect Benjamin to be used as a starting receiver despite Sammy Watkins (foot) being week to week. Even with Patrick Mahomes leading one of the best offenses in the league, Benjamin will be no more than a low-floor WR5 if he ends up being active in Week 15.

Chad Williams (ankle, hamstring) was listed as a starter on the Cardinals' Week 15 depth chart.

Williams has been inactive for five straight games, but it looks like a return is possible against the Falcons. If Williams does return, it limits the deep sleeper appeal of J.J. Nelson and Trent Sherfield in DFS tournaments.

DeSean Jackson (thumb) is hopeful to play again this season, but he hasn't been able to squeeze the ball at all.

Jackson still has his injured thumb immobilized after re-injuring it in Week 11, so things would need to quickly change for him to have any shot at playing in Week 15. For now, expect Adam Humphries and Chris Godwin to fill in behind Mike Evans while Jackson follows the doctor's timetable for return, but all three receivers are in a tough spot playing on the road against the Ravens. Humphries and Godwin will be risky WR3 options on Sunday, assuming Jackson is unable to play.

Keke Coutee (hamstring) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said that Coutee is "trending toward being able to play" and Tuesday's practice status confirms his statement. With DeAndre Hopkins and to a lesser degree Demaryius Thomas hogging most of the team's targets, Coutee shouldn't be counted on in Saturday's road contest against the Jets.

The NFL informed clubs that projections for the 2019 salary cap are between $187 million and $191.1 million.

The current salary cap is set at $177.2 million, so it's another sizable, yet expected, jump. Over the last five seasons, the cap has increased by 40% -- it was $133.0 million in 2014 -- and the cap has now climbed more than $10 million six years in a row. Despite the numerous PR battles, the business of the NFL continues to grow.

Bills placed CB Taron Johnson on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, ending his season.

The No. 121 overall pick of April's draft was injured making his second start in Week 13. Johnson was serving as the Bills' primary slot corner before going down. Although far from elite, he was playing promising football and could maintain nickel duties for 2019.
Dec 11 - 5:22 PM

Raiders placed OL Jon Feliciano on injured reserve with a calf injury, ending his season.

A jack-of-all-trades swing man, fourth-year pro Feliciano had made four starts this season. The 2015 fourth-rounder is headed to free agency.
Dec 11 - 5:20 PM

Raiders waived RB C.J. Anderson.

With Doug Martin's health no longer a question mark, Anderson has been cut loose after one week in Oakland. With Spencer Ware's (shoulder) health in doubt, perhaps the Chiefs will consider a waiver claim after they worked out Anderson last week.
Dec 11 - 5:11 PM

Saints signed OT Derek Newton.

31-year-old Newton has not played since rupturing both his patellar tendons in 2016. He will be the last-lineman on the bench for playoff-bound New Orleans.
Dec 11 - 5:08 PM

Saints placed OL Michael Ola on injured reserve with a high-ankle sprain, ending his season.

The swing reserve had played just 32 snaps this season. Derek Newton is taking his roster spot.
Dec 11 - 5:07 PM

Melvin Gordon (knee) returned to Chargers practice Tuesday, getting in a limited session.

There is now a real chance that Gordon returns from his two-game absence against the Chiefs on Thursday. For his part, Gordon has said he expects to be a game-time decision. If Gordon does suit up, it's possible he will not be in for his usual workload, though Austin Ekeler (concussion) is expected to be sidelined.
Dec 11 - 5:04 PM

Eagles placed DE Josh Sweat on injured reserve with an ankle injury, ending his season.

The No. 130 overall pick of the draft, Sweat had played just 68 snaps on defense. He will turn 22 in March.
Dec 11 - 4:42 PM

Tyreek Hill (heel) was officially "limited" in Tuesday's practice.

Most signs have pointed toward Hill suiting up for Thursday night's game against the Chargers. His status will be updated on Wednesday.
Dec 11 - 4:36 PM

Eagles placed RB Corey Clement on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

Clement has "just" a sprain, but the Eagles can't afford to save his roster spot for the final three games of the season as they play for their playoff lives. The Eagles are well covered in the "pace changing" department with Wendell Smallwood and Darren Sproles behind Josh Adams. A second-year UDFA, Clement was underwhelming this season, averaging 3.80 yards per carry and finding the end zone only twice on 90 touches. 2019 will be his age-25 campaign. Clement will not be guaranteed to make the Eagles' 53-man roster.
Dec 11 - 4:36 PM

Colts waived TE Erik Swoope.

It's the second time this season the ex-basketball player has been waived. Swoope can make some splash plays but not much else. His release is a sign that Mo Alie-Cox (calf) is trending in the right direction.
