Lions placed RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

The 43rd pick in April's draft, Johnson hasn't played since Week 11. Seldom-used to start the season as part of a committee, it didn't take long for Johnson to separated himself from the pack in Detroit. He had a pair of 100-yard rushing games and an 87-yard effort his last game. Johnson finishes with a 118-641-3 rushing line and 32 catches for 213 yards and another touchdown as a receiver. Johnson should be fine by OTAs. Zach Zenner has been the lead back.

Chargers send a league-high seven players to the 2019 Pro Bowl.

Those players are WR Keenan Allen, RB Melvin Gordon, DE Melvin Ingram, FS Derwin James, ST Adrian Phillips, QB Philip Rivers, and C Mike Pouncey, who earned an NFL-high $500,000 bonus for making the Pro Bowl. The Chargers narrowly beat the Steelers (6), Chiefs (6), Bears (5), Cowboys (5), and Saints (5) for the most Pro Bowl selections. There will be others added to the team as players drop out, so the final roster could change these standings. The current list can be found in the link below.

Phillip Lindsay became the first undrafted offensive player to be selected to the Pro Bowl as a rookie.

Lindsay earned his selection by scoring nine rushing touchdowns while averaging 5.4 yards on his 182 carries. The undrafted rookie has also snagged 33-of-45 targets for 230 yards and an additional touchdown. The other running backs to be selected to the Pro Bowl are James Conner, Melvin Gordon, Todd Gurley, Saquon Barkley, Ezekiel Elliott, and Tarik Cohen (return specialist). The full list can be found in the link below, but remember that many others are added as players drop out from participating. Just ask Andy Dalton.

Packers placed NT Kenny Clark (elbow) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Clark was inactive for Week 15, and the Packers are choosing to sideline him for the last two games. It's a big loss for Green Bay -- Pro Football Focus grades him as the No. 8 interior defensive lineman -- especially with Mike Daniels (foot, I.R.) out as well. Jets RB Elijah McGuire will be a RB2 with Clark and Daniels out of commission.

New York Upstate reports free agent Nathan Peterman will work out for the Raiders.

Peterman is "drawing a lot of interest" from the league, and his next stop will be in Oakland. The ex-Bills quarterback will work out for Jon Gruden, who is reportedly "very high" on Peterman's abilities. New York Upstate's Ryan Talbot wouldn't be surprised if Peterman landed on the Raiders' practice squad.

Dolphins signed DT Kendrick Norton.

The 2018 No. 242 overall pick has been on the Panthers' practice squad this season, but the Dolphins have signed him to the active roster. The rookie surprisingly entered the draft after his junior season at Miami and will likely be an early-down run defender if he can get on the field.
Dec 18 - 6:50 PM

Joe Flacco was left off the injury report on Monday.

It's the first time Flacco has been completely left off the injury report since his November 4th hip injury. Flacco will remain Lamar Jackson's backup for the Week 16 game the Chargers.
Dec 18 - 6:28 PM

Raiders waived LB Emmanuel Lamur.

The ex-Vikings and Bengals reserve had struggled to get on the field this season. Lamur's Raiders career ends after 145 snaps. 2019 will be his age-30 campaign.
Dec 18 - 5:38 PM

Seahawks placed OG Jordan Simmons on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

A second-year UDFA, Simmons had made three starts this season. He was filling in at right guard when injured in Week 15. Provided he is healthy, he will fight for one of the final spots on the Seahawks' 53-man roster in 2019.

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn believes Keenan Allen (hip) could end up a game-time decision for Saturday's game against the Ravens.

Allen did not practice on Thursday, getting his week off on the wrong foot. Allen would ideally rest, but Saturday is a game the Chargers have to have to keep their hopes of earning the AFC's No. 1 seed alive. Even having Allen as a decoy would be a big boost against the Ravens' strong secondary.
Dec 18 - 5:28 PM

Rams signed RB C.J. Anderson.

With Todd Gurley dealing with knee inflammation, the Rams are taking out a Week 16 insurance policy. Were Gurley to sit against the Cardinals' soft run defense, CJA would likely see immediate run alongside existing backups John Kelly and Justin Davis.
Dec 18 - 5:26 PM

Raiders placed RG Gabe Jackson on injured reserve with an elbow injury, ending his season.

This will help the Raiders in their pursuit of the No. 1 overall pick. Jackson played all 67 snaps in Week 14 but was missing in Week 15. He should be back to 100 percent health well ahead of next summer's training camp. Going on 28, Jackson is signed through 2022. He has earned sub-replacement level marks from Pro Football Focus each of the past two years.
Dec 18 - 5:15 PM

Jordan Reed (ankle, foot) remained sidelined on Tuesday.

It would be highly surprising if Reed played again this season.
Dec 18 - 5:12 PM

Marcus Mariota was limited in Tuesday's practice with a foot issue.

Mariota is often battling some sort of ailment but has usually played through them this season. His Week 16 job against the Redskins will be to put the ball in Derrick Henry's gut as many times as possible.
Dec 18 - 5:07 PM

Melvin Gordon (knee) was "full speed" in Tuesday's practice.

Gordon was officially designated as "full." He will return for Saturday's game against the Ravens. Even in a tough matchup, Gordon will immediately slot back in as a top-eight RB1.
