Texans claimed RB Andre Ellington off waivers from the Cardinals.

Nov 21 - 4:24 PM

Falcons waived CB Jalen Collins.

Collins was set to be activated from a 10-game PED ban, his second steroid suspension. Instead, the Falcons are moving on from the No. 42 overall pick of the 2015 draft. Still only 24, Collins played well down the stretch in 2016. Collins may clear waivers so teams don't have to pick up his contract, but he will undoubtedly get another chance.

Redskins placed LG Shawn Lauvao on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his season.

Lauvao is 1-of-4 Redskins to hit injured reserve on Tuesday, including fellow starting lineman C Spencer Long. Oft injured, this is the second season in three Lauvao will finish on I.R.. At least according to Pro Football Focus, he was performing as one of the worst interior linemen in the league before going down. Lauvao is headed for free agency. Ty Nsekhe finished Week 11 in Lauvao's place, and will presumably replace him going forward.

Giants RT Justin Pugh (back) hopes to return in Week 13.

Speaking Tuesday, Pugh said he is "feeling better," but does not want to rush his return. With the 2-8 Giants playing on Thursday night, it's a sensible policy from their right tackle. Chad Wheeler is filling in during Pugh's absence.

Lions waived DT Khyri Thornton.

Thornton had played just 68 snaps in four appearances since returning from a six-game PED ban. Turning 28 on Tuesday, Thornton will hunt for work as a run stopper if he clears waivers.

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports the Broncos plan to start Paxton Lynch against the Raiders in Week 12.

Things have been trending this way since Sunday's (latest) loss. Official word is expected to come Wednesday. Lynch showed very little in two rookie starts, but the Broncos have nothing to lose as they play out the string of a lost season. They need to find out if their 2016 first-rounder has anything resembling a future under center. Lynch couldn't ask for a softer opponent than a Raiders team generating essentially zero pressure or turnovers.
Nov 21 - 3:34 PM

Browns placed DT Jamie Meder (high-ankle sprain) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Meder is a run stopper who was playing 20-25 weekly snaps. A 2014 UDFA, he's headed for restricted free agency. Turning 27 in April, it's possible he's not tendered a contract by the rebuilding Browns.

Byron Marshall will take over as the Redskins' passing-down back following Chris Thompson's season-ending leg injury.

Marshall was signed off the Eagles' practice squad just one week ago. "(He's) a bright kid and willing to learn," coach Jay Gruden said. "He’s not going to have much of a choice. He’s going to have to." The third-down back is a heavily utilized position in Gruden's offense, but Marshall won't simply assume Thompson's lost targets. For now, Marshall should not be considered PPR viable.

Sterling Shepard (migraines) was officially "DNP" in Tuesday's practice.

It's a downgrade from Monday's limited session. Coach Ben McAdoo said Shepard is "not feeling well," and that the team is trying to determine the source of his migraines. Shepard is now on the wrong side of questionable for Thursday night's game against the Redskins, though a Wednesday return would have him on track to suit up.
Nov 21 - 2:46 PM

Seahawks RG Oday Aboushi will miss Week 12 with a dislocated shoulder.

Aboushi suffered the injury in the fourth quarter on Monday night. It's possible he misses multiple games. Presumably, Mark Glowinski will now slide back into the starting lineup. Like Glowinski before him, Aboushi has been a liability on Russell Wilson's right side.

Cardinals promoted WR Carlton Agudosi from the practice squad.

With John Brown out for Week 12, the Cards needed an extra body at receiver. An UDFA out of Rutgers, Agudosi caught four passes for 52 yards in the preseason.
Nov 21 - 1:45 PM

Sterling Shepard (migraines) was "not spotted" at Tuesday's practice.

It's possible Shepard shows up after the media departs, but it would be a downgrade after he was listed as "limited" on Monday. It's also possible the Giants simply slap Shepard with another limited tag, even if he essentially doesn't participate. Right now, Shepard should be considered on the wrong side of questionable for Thursday night's game against the Redskins.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Mike Davis (groin) is "unlikely" to play Week 12 against the 49ers.

It is a tough break for a player who seemed to be taking advantage of his opportunity on Monday night, especially considering the Davis' former team, the 49ers, are next up on the schedule. With Davis out, Thomas Rawls will jump back into the rotation, but this is a situation to avoid outside of J.D. McKissic in PPR formats.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: While Davis was sidelined Monday, McKissic worked as the primary back and finished with 12 touches while Eddie Lacy saw three. Even if Rawls is active in Week 12, it could be McKissic's backfield against the 49ers. He couldn't have a much better spot; the 49ers are giving up the most PPR points per game to RBs while allowing the most receiving yards and 2nd-most receiving touchdowns to the position. At just $3.7k on DraftKings, McKissic looks like a solid value but it’ll be worth monitoring the situation this week before pulling the trigger.
Nov 21 - 12:50 PM

49ers released DE Datone Jones.

Because the trade deadline has passed, he will be subject to waivers. The 2013 first-round pick lasted three games with the 49ers, his third team this season. Jones was likely cut to make room for Tank Carradine (ankle), who is eligible to return from injured reserve.
Nov 21 - 12:39 PM

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer confirmed Case Keenum will start Thursday against the Lions.

It was the only decision Zimmer could make after Keenum played well in a big win over the Rams on Sunday. The matchup with the Lions is not great, but Keenum has good enough weapons and has flashed a high enough ceiling to keep him in the streaming conversation.
