Cowboys DE Jack Crawford suffered a broken thumb in Week 12 and will miss four weeks.

The backup defensive end has amassed eight tackles and two sacks across 143 defensive snaps this season. Crawford will undergo surgery on Tuesday.

The Saints declared WR Robert Meachem, RB Khiry Robinson, CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB Terrence Frederick, LB Kyle Knox, OT Nick Becton, and DL Brandon Deaderick inactive for Week 12 against the Ravens.

Meachem has an ankle injury. His absence is even better news for Kenny Stills. Robinson remains without a timetable for return from a forearm injury.
Nov 24 - 7:16 PM

Ravens declared WR Michael Campanaro, NT Terrence Cody, LB Arthur Brown, DE DeAngelo Tyson, C Gino Gradkowski, CB Rashaan Melvin, and OT Jah Reid inactive for Week 12 against the Saints.

Campanaro has a thigh injury, while Reid is sidelined with a hand issue. The rest of the Ravens' inactives are healthy scratches.

Texans signed QB Thad Lewis.

With Ryan Mallett (pectoral) done for the season, Lewis will be the Texans' No. 3 quarterback. He may actually be active on game days if the Texans deem fourth-round rookie Tom Savage not ready for NFL action. Lewis was brutal in the preseason for the Bills after entering summer the favorite for No. 2 duties.
Nov 24 - 6:44 PM

Cowboys S Jeff Heath will undergo thumb surgery on Tuesday.

Heath, a reserve safety and special teamer, has been good covering kicks, racking up eight tackles and playing 93 defensive snaps. The second-year UDFA out of Saginaw Valley was forced to start nine games for Dallas in 2013. Heath is expected to be back before the end of the regular season.
Nov 24 - 6:39 PM

Jets declared RB Bilal Powell, QB Matt Simms, WR Walter Powell, CB Josh Thomas, LB I.K. Enemkpali, and OL Wesley Johnson inactive for Week 12 against the Bills.

With Powell inactive, Chris Johnson may be tasked with an uptick in passing-down touches and snaps. Powell is the Jets' best pass protector. He is down for this game due to an illness.
Nov 24 - 5:43 PM

Chris Ivory (shoulder) is active for Week 12 against the Bills.

Ivory practiced in full this week despite being listed on the injury report. He's on the RB2 borderline for a matchup against the Bills' top-ten run defense. The Jets inactives are RB Bilal Powell, OG Dakota Dozier, LB Ikemefuna Enemkpali, OL Wesley Johnson, WR Walt Powell, QB Matt Simms, and CB Josh Thomas.
Nov 24 - 5:39 PM

Fred Jackson is active for Monday night's game against the Jets.

He was listed as questionable with a groin injury. F-Jax's workload is unclear, but we suspect he'll end up playing the most snaps in Buffalo's backfield. The Bills' inactives are FB Frank Summers, WR Marquise Goodwin, TE MarQuies Gray, OT Cyrus Kouandjio, DL Jarius Wynn, DE Bryan Johnson, and LB Randell Johnson.
Nov 24 - 5:34 PM

Colts re-signed OLB Victor Butler.

They waived DL Kelcy Quarles to make room. Butler is a once-promising pass rusher who missed all of 2013 with a torn ACL, and has been cut by several teams since. 27 years old, he'll try to earn snaps in Indy's sub-package defense.
Nov 24 - 5:33 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expressed confidence Monday that Marshawn Lynch (back, illness) will play on Thanksgiving against the 49ers.

"We'll expect he'll be ready to go," said Carroll. "He won't want to miss this." It's obviously a huge division game in primetime. Lynch missed a number of plays in Sunday's win over the Cardinals because he was "sick to his stomach," Carroll said after the game. Carroll also acknowledged Lynch's longstanding back woes haven't gone away. He'll be a low-end RB1 against the 49ers.

Chiefs placed SS Eric Berry on the reserve/non-football illness list, ending his season.

Per ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher, the team believes Berry has lymphoma. If so, it's a scary time for Berry and his family. It's also a huge loss for the Chiefs, who may have to reinsert Marcus Cooper as a starting corner after moving Ron Parker from safety the past few weeks. The fifth overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft, Berry turns 26 in December. This is his contract year.

Jarvis Landry and Mike Wallace both played 46 snaps in the Dolphins' Week 12 loss to the Broncos.

Brian Hartline was third in line with 43 snaps. Although Landry primarily aligns in the slot, he has "started" six of Miami's last seven games and quietly but surely emerged as the favorite for targets in the Dolphins' pass-catcher corps. He's an every-week WR3 in fantasy leagues, particularly in PPR.
Nov 24 - 4:55 PM

The Broncos will work out free agent K Jay Feely on Tuesday.

Former Bucs kicker Connor Barth will be at the same tryout. The Broncos are putting current PK Brandon McManus on notice. McManus has missed four field goals, and Denver's playcalling has shown little confidence in him.

Bishop Sankey suffered a stinger in the Titans' Week 12 loss to Philadelphia.

Sankey suffered the injury on a lost fumble. He returned to the game and should be all systems go for Sunday's Week 13 clash with the Titans.
Nov 24 - 4:39 PM

Dexter McCluster is currently in the NFL's concussion protocol.

If McCluster can't play Sunday against the Texans, the Titans might be forced to put more on Bishop Sankey's plate in obvious passing situations.
