Jeremy Maclin (groin) got in a limited practice Monday.

Indications earlier Monday suggested Maclin will return to the lineup Thursday night against the Raiders. While he's nothing more than a WR4, Maclin also figures to affect the production of Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill.
Dec 5 - 8:09 PM

Jets RE Muhammad Wilkerson (ankle) is active for Week 13 against the Colts.

He suffered a setback in Saturday's practice, but apparently it wasn't enough to keep him out. Inactive for the Jets are QB Christian Hackenberg, WR Devin Smith, S Calvin Pryor, OLB Lorenzo Mauldin, OL Dakota Dozier, WR Jalin Marshall, and NT Steve McLendon. Rontez Miles will start for Pryor.
Dec 5 - 7:12 PM

T.Y. Hilton (back) is active for Week 13 against the Jets.

As expected. Hilton will be a rock-solid WR1 against a burnt-to-crisp Jets pass defense. Inactive for the Colts are OLB Robert Mathis, CB Patrick Robinson, SS Clayton Geathers, ILB Deon King, OT Le'Raven Clark, OG Austin Blythe, DE Lavar Edwards.
Dec 5 - 7:07 PM

Seahawks signed FB Marcel Reece.

Reece is from the area and played his college ball at Washington. The 31-year-old was cut by the Raiders back in September. He'll fill in as Thomas Rawls' backfield mate while FB Will Tukuafu is in the concussion protocol.
Dec 5 - 6:54 PM

Raiders SS Karl Jospeh is in a walking boot Monday.

Joseph has been solid in pass coverage since being promoted to the starting lineup in Week 3. The 14th overall pick in this year's draft has graded out as PFF's No. 35 safety out of 89 qualifiers. His status for Thursday night against the Chiefs is up in the air. Nate Allen replaced him on Sunday.

Raiders designated DE Mario Edwards (hip) their I.R.-return player.

He began practicing on Monday and will have 21 days to be activated from the I.R. list. If the Raiders can get back Edwards and suspended pass rusher Aldon Smith ahead of the playoffs, it will only make Oakland better.

Coach Pete Carroll confirmed FS Earl Thomas suffered a broken tibia in Week 13 and is done for the season.

He'll likely be placed on I.R. sometime this week. Thomas was hurt by friendly fire from SS Kam Chancellor in Sunday night's win and had to be carted off the field. It's a massive loss for a team with Super Bowl aspirations. Fourth-year UDFA Steven Terrell filled in for Thomas after he was hurt.
Dec 5 - 6:13 PM

Jonathan Cooper will be the Browns' starting right guard in Week 14.

Cooper was claimed off waivers from the Patriots back in October. The former No. 7 overall pick of the Cardinals has yet to play an offensive snap this season. After RG John Greco was sent to IR during the bye week, the Browns will now use the final four weeks to see what they have in Cooper.
Dec 5 - 6:05 PM

Bears claimed CB Johnthan Banks off waivers from the Lions.

This was the corresponding move when Jay Cutler (shoulder) was placed on I.R. A second-round bust in the 2013 draft, Banks has now spent time with the Bucs, Lions, and Bears this year. Banks will get a month-long look-see in Chicago. The 27-year-old's contract expires in March.

9 News Denver's Mike Klis believes Devontae Booker was about to get "overtaken" by Kapri Bibbs before Bibbs suffered a year-ending ankle injury.

Grain of salt advised here because Klis was wrong about Bibbs potentially overtaking Booker once before, and because he allowed this was entirely his own opinion/guess by using the phrase "in my estimation." Still, it's a possible indication that the Broncos are indeed growing frustrated with Booker's lack of decisiveness and inability to generate positive gains. He has averaged just 2.80 yards per carry over the last five games. The Broncos claimed longtime Gary Kubiak pal Justin Forsett off waivers on Monday, and it would not be surprising if Forsett were mixed into the game plan as soon as Week 14 at Tennessee.
Dec 5 - 5:20 PM

Broncos placed RB Kapri Bibbs on injured reserve with a high ankle sprain, ending his season.

It's a shame after Bibbs gave the Broncos some of their most explosive runs of the season in Sunday's win at Jacksonville. The Broncos will move forward with Justin Forsett as their No. 2 back behind shaky starter Devontae Booker, whose performance is seemingly getting worse every week. Bibbs is primarily a special teamer and not someone worth stashing in any Dynasty leagues.
Dec 5 - 5:16 PM

Browns coach Hue Jackson said Monday that it's "too soon" to say whether Robert Griffin III will start in Week 14 against the Bengals.

Although Jackson was noncommittal in this presser, seemingly all of the Browns' beat writers believe RG3 will be under center versus Cincinnati. The growing consensus among reporters covering the team suggests they already know the Browns' Week 14 starter based on scuttlebutt at team headquarters. Hopefully Jackson will be more willing to publicly name his starter later in the week.
Dec 5 - 5:15 PM

Lions CB Quandre Diggs is expected to miss the rest of the season with a torn pectoral.

After a promising rookie campaign in 2015, Diggs took a step back in coverage as a sophomore. The Lions do have him under control cheaply for the next two seasons, but they will bring in competition for Diggs in 2017 training camp.
Dec 5 - 5:07 PM

Coach Dirk Koetter said Monday the Bucs will activate RB Charles Sims from the I.R./return list this week.

If Sims is in shape -- he has spent the last two months recovering from a knee injury -- he should step in as the Bucs' primary passing-game and catch-up back. Sims' activation will occur after a game where Doug Martin missed the final three drives due to an apparently innocuous injury. Sims' versatility should come in especially handy due to Tampa Bay's growing concerns at wide receiver, where they lost Cecil Shorts (knee) and Adam Humphries (concussion) in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Sims' return makes Doug Martin an easier Week 14 fade. Bucs will be heavily targeted vs. the Saints, especially the passing game. Not only did Martin lose some late game work (due to injury) in Week 13, but he'll take on a Saints defense that has allowed the 2nd fewest FPPG to RBs over the past month. That improvement for New Orleans has coincided with Sheldon Rankins' return from an injury.
Dec 5 - 5:01 PM

Bills placed WR Percy Harvin (migraines) on the reserve/NFI list.

He's done for the year. The Bills talked Harvin out of retirement in early November, only for Harvin to appear in just two games and eventually suffer another bout of migraines. At age 28, Harvin's career is once again in doubt.
