Seahawks RB Mike Davis exited Week 11 against the Falcons with a groin injury.

Promoted from the practice squad earlier in the week, Davis actually made the start for the Seahawks while Thomas Rawls was a healthy scratch. It was mostly Davis on run downs and J.D. McKissic in the pass game before Davis was hurt early in the third quarter. He finished the night with 18 yards on six carries and 41 yards on two catches. He had a huge run where Davis absolutely trucked Falcons hard-hitting S Keanu Neal. Eddie Lacy is now mixing in.

Denver radio host Benjamin Allbright reports the Broncos shopped Demaryius Thomas at last month's trade deadline and may look to move him in the offseason.

Allbright isn't a typical Rotoworld source, but he has connections and has broken stories. Per Allbright, the "team feels [Thomas] lost strength when he switched to a vegan diet and hasn't been the same player." Thomas barely got to the 1,000 yards mark last season (1,083) and is on pace for just 1,012 yards this year after having 1,300-plus from 2012-2015 with Peyton Manning. Thomas doesn't deserve the sole blame here when given Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler as his quarterbacks. Thomas turns 30 next month and is signed through 2019.

Coach Sean McVay said Robert Woods (shoulder) will miss at least a "couple weeks."

It's a huge loss for an offense that has been going through Woods in the pass game. McVay admitted there was concern this might end Woods' season, but he said the team got "positive news" that he'll only miss a couple weeks at best. In Woods' absence, possibly Sammy Watkins will get more involved and see more than 3-4 targets per game. It'll be a committee approach.

Seahawks LT Duane Brown (ankle) is active for Week 11 against the Falcons.

Brown was considered a game-time call but is ready to roll after going through a pregame warmup routine. It's obviously good news for the offense.

Thomas Rawls is inactive for Week 11 against the Falcons.

He's a surprising healthy scratch, though Rawls has done nothing to warrant playing time. That leaves Eddie Lacy, Mike Davis, and J.D. McKissic in the backfield. It's anyone's guess who will lead it, but the best bet is Russell Wilson doing all the playmaking for this offense. Also inactive for Seattle are SS Kam Chancellor (neck), LB Michael Wilhoite, LG Luke Joeckel, DT Jarran Reed, DT Garrison Smith, and DE Quinton Jefferson. LT Duane Brown is active.

Falcons declared RB Devonta Freeman, LB Duke Riley, WR Nick Williams, OT Austin Pasztor, CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, OG Sean Harlow, and S Sharrod Neasman inactive for Week 11 against the Seahawks.

Freeman was already ruled out with a concussion. Riley has a knee injury.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera doesn't expect Ryan Kalil (neck) to return this week.

Kalil has been shut down since a Week 7 setback. He's practicing this week, but still has some hurdles to clear coming off Carolina's bye. Tyler Larsen looks likely to make at least one more start before Kalil returns.
Nov 20 - 5:52 PM

Saints re-signed CB Sterling Moore.

Moore has been out of the league since the Saints released him last month. His return isn't a good sign for Marshon Lattimore's (ankle) status.
Nov 20 - 5:31 PM

49ers claimed DT Sheldon Day off waivers from the Jaguars.

A 2016 fourth-rounder, Day played just 126 snaps this year before getting waived. He reunites with DC Robert Saleh, who was a position coach in Jacksonville. Day will push for a rotational role behind DeForest Buckner and Earl Mitchell.

ESPN's Field Yates considers the Redskins a possible landing spot for Andre Ellington.

The Redskins have a screen-heavy offense that runs through the short pass game and are in need of a Chris Thompson replacement. Ellington could complement Samaje Perine and add depth with Byron Marshall the only other healthy back. Washington is a scheme fit for Ellington, but he could draw interest from multiple teams.
Nov 20 - 5:09 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms Kelvin Benjamin (knee) has avoided ACL damage.

The Bills are unsure of Benjamin's Week 12 availability, but he's likely to miss some time given his history of knee issues. Buffalo should get Jordan Matthews back this week after he was close to playing Sunday.
Nov 20 - 4:50 PM

Cardinals released RB Andre Ellington.

Ellington's role had been fading behind Adrian Peterson, and he was a healthy scratch last week. The Cardinals saw more upside in Bronson Hill, who was promoted from the practice squad. Playing for the veteran minimum, Ellington should resurface as a pass-down back.
Nov 20 - 4:36 PM

Orleans Darkwa (hamstring) was limited at Monday's practice.

It's a new injury for Darkwa. The limited practice suggests he should fine, but his status can't be taken for granted on a short week. Darkwa will be updated Tuesday.
Nov 20 - 4:35 PM

Sterling Shepard (migraines) was limited at Monday's practice.

Shepard was inactive Sunday and still isn't fully healthy. He's in a race to get cleared with New York playing on Thanksgiving night. The Giants will be forced to go with Roger Lewis and Tavarres King on the outside if Shepard sits.
Nov 20 - 4:31 PM

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports Robert Woods (shoulder) isn’t dealing with structural damage.

Woods went down in the fourth quarter against the Vikings, but his shoulder injury isn’t considered serious. He could potentially play through it without missing time. There should be more clarity on Woods when the Rams return to practice Wednesday.
