Frank Gore (concussion) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Gore says he feels normal, but has yet to be cleared by an independent neurologist. With Gore and Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) uncertain for Saturday's game against the Chargers, the 49ers signed RB Phillip Tanner on Wednesday.
Dec 17 - 4:46 PM

Brandon LaFell (shoulder) was limited on Wednesday.

LaFell will continue to play through his shoulder injury. He's on the WR2 radar against the Jets in Week 16.
Dec 17 - 4:21 PM

Shane Vereen (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Vereen hasn't had any setbacks with his ankle injury. He'll be a boom-or-bust FLEX option against the Jets for the fantasy finals.
Dec 17 - 4:19 PM

Julian Edelman (concussion) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

The fact that Edelman is practicing is a good sign, but his Week 16 status is up in the air. Edelman will be a high-floor WR2 if active for Sunday's matchup with the Jets.
Dec 17 - 4:12 PM

LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Blount was out-snapped and out-touched by Jonas Gray last week but did rush for 17 yards and one touchdown on eight carries. We'd tentatively expect Blount to play against the Jets, but he's barely on the RB3 radar.
Dec 17 - 4:10 PM

Keenan Allen (ankle, collarbone) has been ruled out for Week 16 against the 49ers.

As expected. Seyi Ajirotutu will fill the No. 3 receiver role behind Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal. Look for Antonio Gates to see a bump in targets. Those hanging onto Allen in re-draft leagues can safely cut ties with him.
Dec 17 - 4:07 PM

Calvin Johnson (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

The Lions have been limiting Johnson's practice reps the last three weeks. He'll be a top-five receiver play for Sunday's game with the Bears.
Dec 17 - 4:06 PM

Andre Johnson (concussion) practiced on Wednesday.

Johnson was inactive last week due to his concussion. He's expected to return for Sunday's matchup with the Ravens. Johnson isn't a recommended fantasy option with Case Keenum or Thad Lewis expected to start.
Dec 17 - 4:01 PM

49ers waived LE Ray McDonald.

It's been a long time coming for McDonald. Wednesday's announcement that McDonald is a suspect in an alleged rape from last week that took place at his home was the final straw for the 49ers. It also helps that they're out of the playoff race. McDonald has had a number of off-field red flags, ranging from DUI, all-night partying, felony domestic violence arrest in August, and now this. The 49ers will eat over $4.6 million in dead money against the 2015 salary cap by releasing him.

Yahoo! Sports' Rand Getlin reports Oregon senior CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu suffered a "serious knee injury" -- believed to be a torn ACL -- in practice Tuesday.

Ekpre-Olomu is believed to be one of the top cornerbacks available in the 2015 draft. He was expected to be a first- or second-round pick. At 5'10/185, he projects as an ideal slot corner at the NFL level. If it's a torn ACL, Ekpre-Olomu won't be available until midseason next year. Now-Jaguars CB Aaron Colvin tore his ACL at the Senior Bowl last year and made his NFL debut in November.
Dec 17 - 3:32 PM

Harry Douglas (foot) did not practice Wednesday.

The Falcons are getting Douglas a rest day. Roddy White (knee) was also held out of practice. Douglas will remain a WR2 option if Julio Jones (hip) doesn't return this week.
Dec 17 - 3:30 PM

DeAngelo Williams (hand) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Williams is on track to return this week after sitting out the last two games. He'll cut into Jonathan Stewart's workload, but won't be a fantasy option.
Dec 17 - 3:20 PM

Jordan Matthews (knee) is practicing in full for Week 16 against the Redskins.

Matthews is coming off a goose egg on one target in Week 15. He'd make for an intriguing DFS play after back-to-back down weeks. The Redskins' secondary is brutal.
Dec 17 - 3:14 PM

Broncos signed S Josh Bush off their practice squad.

After losing backup safety and special teamer Quinton Carter to I.R. last week, Bush gets the call. He'll fill the exact same role as Carter. Bush appeared in 35 games for the Jets across the 2012-2014 seasons.
Dec 17 - 3:07 PM

Eddie Lacy (eye) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

The Packers listed Lacy with an eye injury, so this isn't related to his hip issue. With 100 total yards in seven straight games, Lacy is locked in as an RB1 for Week 16 against the Bucs.
