Kyle Rudolph (ankle/knee) is listed as doubtful for Week 16.

Chase Ford and Rhett Ellison will share tight end duties at Miami.

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells believes "it would be surprising" if T.Y. Hilton (questionable, hamstring) played Sunday at Dallas.

The Colts have already locked up the AFC South. From a postseason standpoint, the only reason they'd want to ensure a win in Sunday's game would be to avoid the No. 4 seed, which could end up as trip to New England in the Divisional Round. If the Colts are going to do anything in the playoffs, however, they need Hilton's hamstring healthy first and foremost. He's on the doubtful side of his questionable tag for Sunday's game at JerryWorld.

A.J. Green (illness) returned to a full practice on Friday.

He'll be all systems go for Monday night's game versus Denver.
Dec 19 - 2:45 PM

DeMarco Murray (hand) is listed as questionable for Week 16 after getting in a third straight limited practice on Friday.

This was expected. It's also expected that Murray will be active and start Sunday's game versus the Colts. Fantasy owners should continue to monitor the situation and have Murray handcuffed with Joseph Randle, but it would be a major surprise if DeMarco weren't out there with the ones for Sunday's game.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians suggested Friday that Drew Stanton (knee) could be active for Sunday's game versus Seattle to serve as Ryan Lindley's backup.

Arians confirmed Lindley will start. Stanton is dealing with ACL and MCL sprains in his knee, but the Cardinals obviously have very little confidence in rookie Logan Thomas. We still don't see any scenario where Stanton plays.

Despite Drew Stanton's (knee) "limited" return to practice, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians confirmed Friday that Ryan Lindley will start at quarterback in Week 16 against the Seahawks.

Lindley has been beyond horrendous any time he's taken the field in his three-year career. Seattle's fantasy defense should be fired up with excitement.

Updating a previous item, T.Y. Hilton (hamstring, questionable) stated "I don't know" when asked if he will play Sunday against the Cowboys.

It's a red flag because players are typically overly optimistic about their own odds of playing. "I don't know," conceded Hilton, who did not practice all week. "I'm going to go talk to Coach. Did some field work. I feel all right. So I'm going to go talk to him and see what's up." Hilton is officially a game-time decision, but we're still guessing he won't play. "If our conversation goes well and (Pagano) wants me to play, then I'll play," T.Y. added. "If not, I'll sit out."

Texans ILB Mike Mohamed (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 16.

Mohamed is not a well-known player, but he quietly overtook Brian Cushing as the Texans' best inside linebacker this year. Mohamed's run defense stood out on tape in recent weeks. This is a Week 16 matchup boost for Justin Forsett.
Dec 19 - 2:14 PM

Vikings SLB Anthony Barr underwent knee surgery on Friday and is done for the season.

We suspect it's a routine scope, and Barr will be healthy well in advance of the offseason conditioning program. The ninth overall pick in last May's draft, Barr had an excellent rookie season, piling up 70 tackles, four sacks, and two forced fumbles across 12 games. Pro Football Focus gave Barr strong marks for both his pass rush and run defense. Turning 23 in March, Barr has a bright future as a versatile edge presence in Mike Zimmer's defense.
Dec 19 - 2:09 PM

Bears K Robbie Gould (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Week 16.

Gould will be replaced by Jay Feely in Sunday's clash with Detroit
Dec 19 - 2:00 PM

Steelers LCB Ike Taylor is listed as doubtful for Week 16.

The fantasy moneymaker will join SS Troy Polamalu (knee) on the sideline. 34-year-old Taylor is battling injuries to his knee, shoulder, and arm.
Dec 19 - 1:57 PM

Eddie Lacy (eye) is listed as probable for Week 16.

Goggled or not goggled, Fat Eddie is a top-five RB1 Sunday at Tampa Bay.
Dec 19 - 1:51 PM

Browns LCB Joe Haden (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 16.

Haden got very little practice work in during the week, but indications out of Cleveland still seem more optimistic than pessimistic. Officially, he'll likely be a game-time call. Kelvin Benjamin would get a very nice matchup boost if Haden could not play Sunday at Carolina.
Dec 19 - 1:50 PM

T.Y. Hilton (hamstring, questionable) told reporters Friday afternoon that he feels "50-50" to play Sunday at Dallas.

Per beat writer Stephen Holder, Hilton's words were "cryptic." The Colts have very little to gain by pushing Hilton to play against the Cowboys, and much more to gain if he's 100 percent for the playoffs. We're just speculating, but would bet against Hilton being active at Dallas. Reggie Wayne and Donte Moncrief would then likely be Indianapolis' starters in two-wide sets.
Dec 19 - 1:39 PM

Drew Stanton (sprained ACL, MCL) "did nothing" during the portion of practice that is open to the media Friday.

The Cardinals listed Stanton as "limited" in Thursday's practice, but there's no way he's playing on Sunday Night Football. Perhaps the Cards were trying to create the illusion he might start ahead of a division game versus Seattle.
