Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) announced he's been medically cleared to return.

"It's been a long road from that day to this, but I'm happy to say I've been medically cleared to return," Rodgers announced Tuesday night. "Thanks for all the love, support, prayers, and well wishes over the past 8 weeks." Rodgers' Week 15 status had been up in the air earlier in the day, but this seems to point to him being under center against the Panthers this week. The 7-6 Packers have treaded water in Rodgers' absence and now have a chance to run the table and get into the playoffs with arguably the league's best passer back in action. Jordy Nelson also gets a huge boost back up the receiver ranks with Rodgers back. Davante Adams remains a WR2. The Vikings and Lions are on the schedule after Carolina.

Hunter Henry (calf) was limited in Tuesday's practice.

Henry ultimately should be fine for Saturday night's tilt with the Chiefs.

The Boston Herald reports the Patriots consider WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee, injured reserve) unlikely to return this season.

Beat writer Jeff Howe reports that's been the Pats' assumption "for weeks." The Pats signed Kenny Britt on Tuesday to bolster their receiver corps. A promising second-year fourth-rounder who can't shake persistent knee woes, Mitchell was placed on injured reserve ahead of Week 1. Despite his upside, Mitchell's Patriots future is likely up in the air.

Browns waived WR Bryce Treggs.

A popular sleeper type in Dynasty leagues, Treggs is a 2016 UDFA with eight catches in 15 career games. The fact that he couldn't stick on the rebuilding Browns' 53-man roster doesn't bode particularly well for his NFL future. Treggs turns 24 in April.

Bengals QB Jeff Driskel (thumb, injured reserve) has resumed practicing.

It opens Driskel's three-week window to come off injured reserve. With only three weeks left in the season and Andy Dalton and A.J. McCarron both healthy, it's possible Driskel is never added to the 53-man roster.
Dec 12 - 4:52 PM

Ameer Abdullah (neck) is practicing in full for Week 15.

The Lions were cagey on Abdullah's health after he was scratched for Sunday's win over the Bucs, but it sounds like he could have played. The Lions are over Abdullah's poor 2017 performance. His best-case scenario for Week 15 is being part of a committee with Theo Riddick, Tion Green and perhaps Zach Zenner. The Lions are playing the Bears on Saturday.

Redskins signed RB Kapri Bibbs, LB Otha Peters and LB Pete Robertson.

Bibbs worked out for the Redskins last month. With Byron Marshall (hamstring) headed to injured reserve, Bibbs could immediately slide in as the new No. 2 running back. He's far from an ideal Marshall/Chris Thompson replacement, as pass catching is not part of his game. UDFA LeShun Daniels Jr. might take over in that department, though he also rarely caught passes at Iowa.

Redskins placed RB Byron Marshall on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ending his season.

TE Jordan Reed and LB Chris Carter have also been sent to injured reserve. Chris Thompson's fill-in as the Redskins' pass-catching back, Marshall injured his hamstring on a Week 14 kick return. Marshall averaged a modest seven touches in two healthy games in place of Thompson. A second-year UDFA, Marshall will have to work to crack someone's 53-man roster in 2018.

Redskins placed TE Jordan Reed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ending his season.

It's the only logical end to what was a lost 2017 for the would-be star tight end. Always injured, Reed was limited to a career-low six games. Reed reported to camp with a toe injury that had been bothering him since 2016. Things went downhill from there as he battled shoulder, chest and hamstring ailments, amongst others. When Reed was on the field during his age-27 campaign, he was ineffective, averaging a fullback-like 7.8 yards per catch. Signed through 2021, Reed will head into 2018 having averaged 10 games across five NFL seasons.

Patriots signed WR Kenny Britt to a two-year contract.

Waived by the worst team in football four days ago, Britt will try to stick to the Super Bowl-or-bust Patriots' 53-man roster. Especially while Chris Hogan (shoulder) was sidelined, the Pats were lacking depth at receiver. Hogan is back now, but another body was still needed. It's an open question as to whether Britt will be able to keep his roster spot, though the two-year deal suggests he will. Britt was all the way checked out for the Browns, making awful errors and few, if any, big plays. Although he will be catching passes from Tom Brady, Britt won't have any fantasy value in his new home.
Dec 12 - 4:01 PM

Rob Gronkowski's one-week suspension is over.

Gronk's presence was sorely missed in Monday night's beatdown loss to the Dolphins. Gronk, as usual, will be the top tight end play on the board for Week 15 against the Steelers.
Dec 12 - 3:57 PM

49ers signed WR Max McCaffrey.

Christian's brother, Max was plucked off the Packers' practice squad. McCaffrey appeared in five games for the Jaguars earlier this season, catching his first and only pass. If he lasts through the end of the year in San Francisco, he should get a reserve/future contract in January.
Dec 12 - 3:45 PM

Broncos NT Domata Peko (knee) is expected to return for Week 15 against the Colts.

Peko missed the Broncos' past two games. Having a solid year as a run-stuffer, Peko's return will provide a boost for the Broncos against Frank Gore.
Dec 12 - 3:28 PM

Rams coach Sean McVay wants to be more "mindful of" sticking with the run.

The Rams went away from Todd Gurley for long stretches of Sunday's narrow loss to the Eagles, especially in the first half. Gurley's rush attempts (13) were doubled up by Jared Goff's passes (26) even though Gurley averaged 7.38 yards per carry. "I look at it myself and say, ‘You’ve got to make sure that you’re cognizant of giving the runs a chance and trying to stay balanced,’" McVay said. "And that’s something that I haven’t done. ... That’s something that I’ve got to be mindful of." Gurley hasn't reached 20 carries in seven games. It's going to be hard to stick with the run against the Seahawks in Week 15.
Dec 12 - 2:32 PM

Tevin Coleman (concussion) did not practice Tuesday.

It is not a surprise after he was placed in the concussion protocol following the game on Thursday. The good news is the Falcons do not play until Monday night, so he has a better chance than most to be cleared in time. Atlanta will release their first practice report on Thursday.
