Browns CB Joe Haden (shoulder) is active for Week 17 against the Ravens.

Haden only got in limited practices this week, but will give it a go in the season finale. It is a bit of a downgrade for Steve Smith, but Smith was not a quality starting option either way.

Titans declared LT Taylor Lewan (ankle) inactive for Sunday's Week 17 game against the Colts.

Lewan hasn't played since going down in Week 12. It was still an encouraging season for the No. 11 overall pick, who performed at a higher level than Greg Robinson or Jake Matthews when he was on the field. The rest of the Titans inactives: Zach Mettenberger, Jemea Thomas, Rico Richardson, Dontay Much, Ropati Pitoitua, Terren Jones, Ropati Pitoitua and Terren Jones.
Dec 28 - 11:50 AM

Dolphins declared WR Rishard Matthews, RB LaMichael James, DB Walt Aikens, DL Deandre Coleman, OT Dallas Thomas, G/C Sam Brenner, and WR Matt Hazel inactive for Week 17 against the Jets.

There are no surprises anmongst the Dolphins' Week 17 inactives.
Dec 28 - 11:45 AM

Saints S Kenny Vaccaro is a healthy scratch for Week 17.

Vaccaro wasn't on the injury report, so he's a healthy scratch for the Saints' meaningless finale. It's been quite a fall for Vaccaro after he was one of the league's best rookies in 2013. Also inactive for the Saints are WR Seantavius Jones, WR Brandon Coleman, CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste, LB Moises Fokou, LB Jerry Franklin and LT Terron Armstead (neck).
Dec 28 - 11:44 AM

Julian Edelman (concussion) has been declared inactive for Week 17 against the Bills.

A Saturday report said any Patriot carrying even the slightest of injuries would be inactive in the meaningless season finale, so Edelman appears to be a victim of that policy. He got in limited practices this week and should be good to go following the Patriots first-round bye. New England also declared TE Rob Gronkowski, RB Jonas Gray, OG Dan Connolly, OT Sebastian Vollmer, LB Donta Hightower and CB Brandon Browner inactive against the Bills.
Dec 28 - 11:43 AM

Bears declared K Robbie Gould, QB Jimmy Clausen, CB Al Louis-Jean, S Chris Conte, OT Charles Leno, DE Austen Lane, and DT Brandon Dunn inactive for Week 17 against the Vikings.

Jay Feely will close out the season as the Bears' kicker.
Dec 28 - 11:42 AM

Texans declared TE Garrett Graham, WR DeVier Posey, QB Tom Savage, ILB Mike Mohamed, S Josh Aubrey, LG Xavier Su'a-Filo, and OLB Jason Ankrah inactive for Week 17 against the Jaguars.

Graham has an ankle injury. His season ends with 18 catches for 197 yards and one touchdown on 500-plus snaps. Su'a-Filo, the Texans' second-round pick, has been a routine healthy scratch the past few weeks after playing just 130 snaps scattered across the first three months. Houston has amazingly gotten very little out of its draft class. Posey and Savage are out with injuries.
Dec 28 - 11:42 AM

Tony Romo (back) is active and starting for Week 17.

The Cowboys are essentially locked into the No. 3 seed, but appear poised to play their starters for at least a half against the Redskins. Inactive for the Cowboys are ILB Rolando McClain, DT Josh Brent, RT Doug Free, QB Dustin Vaughan, S Jakar Hamilton, LB Dekoda Watson and OT Donald Hawkins.
Dec 28 - 11:40 AM

Browns declared QB Brian Hoyer (shoulder) inactive for Week 17 against the Ravens.

A free agent following the season, Hoyer has likely played his final game in Cleveland. Rookie Connor Shaw will start at quarterback with Johnny Manziel (hamstring) on injured reserve. Without Josh Gordon as well, the Browns offense will struggle to move the ball. The Ravens DST is an excellent option Week 17. Cleveland also declared CB Justin Gilbert, LS Charley Hughlett, OL Ryan Seymour, DT Ahtyba Rubin, OL Andrew McDonald and WR Phil Bates inactive for Week 17.
Dec 28 - 11:40 AM

Jets declared WR Percy Harvin, QB Matt Simms, WR Walter Powell, S Jaiquawn Jarrett, G Wesley Johnson, C Nick Mangold, and DT T.J. Barnes inactive for Week 17 against the Dolphins.

The absence of Harvin makes Eric Decker a sneaky-if-contrarian DFS play against the Fins. Even versus Miami's fading defense, New York's running game is probably going to struggle with All-Pro center Mangold on the shelf.
Dec 28 - 11:40 AM

Ravens declared LT Eugene Monroe (ankle) inactive for Week 17 against the Ravens.

Starting RT Rick Wagner was placed on injured reserve with a Lisfranc injury earlier in the week, meaning Baltimore will be without both their starting tackles against Cleveland. Baltimore also declared DE Chris Canty, S Brynden Trawick, TE Phillip Supernaw, DL Terrence Cody, DE Steve Means and CB Chris Greenwood inactive.
Dec 28 - 11:38 AM

T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is active and Dwayne Allen (knee) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 game at Tennessee.

Even though the Colts have almost nothing to play for, Hilton is a go as they try to get their offense on track. It's unclear how long he'll play. Meanwhile, Allen's absence gives Coby Fleener a big boost. The rest of the Colts inactives: DB Sheldon Price, LB Jerrell Freeman, OL Joe Reitz, OL Gosder Cherilus, LB Bjoern Werner, DL Zach Kerr.
Dec 28 - 11:38 AM

Keenan Allen (collarbone) is inactive for Week 17 against the Chiefs.

The Chargers will go with Malcom Floyd, Eddie Royal, and Dontrelle Inman in three-wide sets. Also inactive for San Diego are RB Ryan Mathews, C Chris Watt, CB Greg Ducre, DE Damion Square, NT Ryan Carrethers, and OLB Cordarro Law.
Dec 28 - 11:37 AM

Jaguars declared WR Tommy Streeter, QB Stephen Morris, DB Jeremy Harris, S Matt Daniels, OL Tyler Shatley, DT Roy Miller, and LB Chris Smith inactive for Week 17 against the Texans.

No surprises here. Miller was listed as doubtful with a knee injury.
Dec 28 - 11:36 AM

Vikings declared RB Henry Josey, S Ahmad Dixon, CB Shaun Prater, LB Chad Greenway, LB Brandon Watts, OL Carter Bykowski, and OG David Yankey inactive for Week 17 against the Bears.

The Vikings have just two running backs active today: Matt Asiata and Joe Banyard. The Vikings grabbed Josey off waivers late in the season and will carry him on their offseason roster. He's a highly explosive scatback type.
