49ers signed TE Vance McDonald to a five-year, $35 million extension with $16 million guaranteed.

The deal locks up McDonald through 2021. Turning 27 next June, McDonald has enjoyed a mini-breakout season in Chip Kelly's offense, parlaying 24 catches into 391 yards with four touchdowns and averaging 16.3 yards per reception. Long prone to dropped passes, McDonald has dropped only three balls this year and has always possessed adequate blocking ability. McDonald played a season-high 91 percent of the 49ers' snaps in Week 13.

C.J. Prosise (shoulder) will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

Prosise is likely out the rest of the regular season but could be back for the playoffs. Thomas Rawls will remain an every-down back until Prosise returns.
Dec 9 - 8:05 PM

Falcons LT Jake Matthews (knee) is questionable for Week 14 against the Rams.

Matthews was able to get in a limited practice Friday, but that was his only action of the week. Atlanta could decide to play it safe with their left tackle in a game they should be able to win going away. Tom Compton took over for Matthews after he left last week's game.
Dec 9 - 8:04 PM

Jets SS Calvin Pryor has been removed from the Week 14 injury report.

He's cleared the concussion protocol. Pryor will miss only one game after sitting out last week. His return upgrades the Jets run defense.
Dec 9 - 7:31 PM

Titans DE Jurrell Casey (questionable, foot) is a game-time decision for Week 14.

Casey didn't practice all week but coach Mike Mularkey isn't ruling him out for Sunday. It doesn't sound like he'll play more than limited snaps even if he manages to be active. Casey's status is an upgrade to Devontae Booker and Justin Forsett's matchups.
Dec 9 - 7:02 PM

Josh Bellamy (shoulder) is questionable for Week 14 against the Lions.

Bellamy got in limited practices all week. He will likely play, and he is not a bad flier in deeper leagues after seeing 15 total targets the last two weeks.
Dec 9 - 6:45 PM

Marquess Wilson (groin) is questionable for Week 14 against the Lions.

Wilson was able to practice on a limited basis Thursday and Friday. He will likely play, but Wilson is too risky to trust in fantasy lineups after his four-snap debacle last week. Josh Bellamy is looking like Chicago's No. 1 receiver. What a world.
Dec 9 - 6:43 PM

Chargers GM Tom Telesco declined to say if coach Mike McCoy will be back next season.

"We're not looking toward 2017 yet," Telesco said. "We've had some tough games that we've lost. Mike has kept this team together. So there's some good things, but the other side is we've got seven losses with four games to go, which is where nobody wants to be." McCoy signed a one-year extension in January to avoid lame-duck status. He's on the hot seat after losing three of his last five games. The Chargers offense has rebounded under McCoy this year but their defense and fourth quarter collapses have remained a big part of their struggles. McCoy (.450 winning percentage) may need to win out to avoid being fired.

The Detroit Free Press reports WLB DeAndre Levy (questionable, knee) "finally appears ready" to return.

Levy is trending toward playing after he was more involved in practice this week. Per beat writer Dave Birkett, "all indications" are he’s going to be active. Levy has been out since Week 1 and should see limited snaps in his first game back. A healthy Levy is a huge upgrade for Detroit's stretch-run defense.
Dec 9 - 6:12 PM

Bucs RT Demar Dotson (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 14.

Dotson wasn't cleared after not practicing all week. It's a downgrade to an already struggling run game. Gosder Cherilus will start in Dotson's place.
Dec 9 - 5:41 PM

Steelers LG Ramon Foster (chest) is questionable for Week 14 against the Bills.

Foster did not practice at all this week after taking a helmet to the chest against the Giants. B.J. Finney will get the nod at left guard if Foster misses the game. Foster sitting out would be a blow for the entire offense.
Dec 9 - 5:36 PM

Detroit will host Chicago QB Matt Barkley in Week 14, who has managed to completed just 51.7 percent of his pass attempts in 2016.

In addition to the low completion percentage, Barkley has four interceptions in limited action this season and has thrown an interception once every 17.1 pass attempts in his career. The Lions D/ST has been solid over the second half of the season and is a prime streaming target for Week 14 while owned in just 23 percent of Yahoo leagues.
Dec 9 - 5:31 PM

Saints LT Terron Armstead (knee, quad) is questionable for Week 14.

Armstead only got in two limited practices this week. He'll likely be a game-time decision against the Bucs. Andrus Peat will start if Armstead is held out.
Dec 9 - 5:30 PM

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith (back) is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Smith has dealt with back issues all year. The Cowboys limited his reps in practice this week. Smith should be fine for Sunday night's game against the Giants.
Dec 9 - 5:22 PM

Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) was limited in Friday's practice.

Bennett admitted he's not 100 percent but is going to continue playing through his injuries. He's a touchdown-dependent TE1 for Monday's game with Baltimore.
