Saints TE Josh Hill suffered a broken fibula Week 13 against the Lions.

Dec 5 - 12:18 PM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Jordan Matthews (ankle) should return to practice Wednesday.

Matthews was able to get in a limited practice last Thursday, but he was held out on Friday after getting "a little sore." A return Wednesday would tentatively put Matthews on track to play, but another setback cannot be ruled out. Devoid of reliable weapons in the passing game, the Eagles need Matthews healthy as soon as possible.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Ryan Mathews (knee) is expected to practice Wednesday.

Mathews has missed the last two games with an MCL sprain. A practice Wednesday would put him on track to play against the Redskins, but Pederson said just last week the injury "could linger." Mathews should be considered questionable.
Dec 5 - 12:15 PM

Dorial Green-Beckham suffered an "oblique contusion" Week 13 against the Bengals.

Coach Doug Pederson said he likely will not practice Wednesday but will play against the Redskins. We have heard similar claims from Pederson before only to see players miss multiple games, but DGB should be fine if it is only a bruise. He will take a backseat to Jordan Matthews this week, who looks set to return from an ankle injury.

ESPN's Pat McManamon wrote "all signs point" to Robert Griffin III getting the start this week.

Hue Jackson has yet to name a starter, and McManamon's prediction comes with the important caveat of "provided he makes it through practice and looks like he has shaken off three months of rust." Still, it makes sense for the Browns to see what Griffin can do, especially considering they averaged fewer than 10 points in their last four games. Even if Griffin gets the nod, the offense around him is too poor and the chance of an in-game injury is too high to trust him in the first-round of the playoffs.

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (hip) is unsure if he will play again this season.

"I don't know. We'll see how it goes," Pouncey said. The center did say his hip "feels good" and he is making progress, but that progress has clearly been slow. On the bright side, the Dolphins did get LT Branden Albert and LG Laremy Tunsil back against the Ravens.

Bill Belichick said DE Jabaal Sheard has been good the last couple weeks.

Sheard did not even travel with the team for the Week 11 game in San Francisco, but he has played 44 percent and 54 percent of the defensive snaps in the last two games with seven tackles and a couple pass breakups over that span. Too good not to play for a struggling defense, Sheard should remain involved the rest of the way.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer (eye surgery) returned to work Monday and will travel with the team to Jacksonville for Sunday's game.

Zimmer underwent emergency surgery to repair a detached retina last Wednesday and was forced to miss Thursday night's game against the Cowboys. There was some concern he would not be cleared to fly in time to travel with the team for Week 14, but that no longer appears to be a concern. He should be back on the sidelines against the Jaguars.

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph exited Week 13 against the Packers with an injury to his ribs.

Joseph left the game in the fourth quarter and never returned. The corner said after the game, "It's a little hard to breathe right now." Relying on their defense to carry them to the playoffs, the Texans cannot afford to be without Joseph.
Dec 5 - 9:59 AM

Malcolm Mitchell played 67-of-79 (85%) snaps Week 13 against the Rams.

As expected with Rob Gronkowski out, Mitchell became an almost every-snap player as the Patriots transitioned to a more three-wide offense. With Danny Amendola looking likely to miss the rest of the regular season with a high-ankle sprain, Mitchell should continue to play the vast majority of the snaps. Coming off a 10-target game, Mitchell will be a solid WR3 next week against the Ravens.
Dec 5 - 9:46 AM

Doug Martin (back?) said he was "doing fine" after sitting out the final three drives Week 13 against the Chargers.

Martin said he was "bent back" late in the game, and that is why he sat out. Coach Dirk Koetter also said the running back was fine after the game. It looks like Martin will be healthy enough to play this week against the Saints, but his workload is suddenly in question, especially with Charles Sims (knee, injured reserve) potentially returning.
Dec 5 - 9:34 AM

Broncos RB Kapri Bibbs was spotted with a boot on his left ankle after Sunday's game.

Bibbs reportedly suffered a high-ankle sprain against the Jaguars, meaning he is going to be out at least a couple weeks. With Devontae Booker struggling and not much else on the depth chart, the Broncos will need to add someone off the street. Justin Forsett was just cut by the Lions.
Dec 5 - 9:31 AM

Denver 7's Troy Renck reports there is "hope" Trevor Siemian (foot) will play this week.

Renck reports Siemian's foot "has improved" since last week. He will be evaluated on Monday. The Broncos got the win against Jacksonville, but they won despite Paxton Lynch. With a tougher test against Tennessee on tap, the Broncos need Siemian on the field if possible.
Dec 5 - 9:24 AM

Danny Amendola suffered a high-ankle sprain Week 13 against the Rams.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the "plan is to make sure he's ready for the playoffs," suggesting he will be out for the rest of the regular season. Amendola does not have much fantasy value on his own, but his absence solidifies Malcolm Mitchell's spot in the offense. Mitchell is shaping up as a solid WR3 despite a tough schedule the rest of the way.
Dec 5 - 9:20 AM

ESPN Giants reporter Jordan Raanan reports "there was optimism" about Jason Pierre-Paul's groin injury on Sunday night.

Pierre-Paul left Week 13 against the Steelers late in the second quarter and never returned. The defensive end said after the game the injury "doesn’t concern me at all." We should know more following a Monday MRI.
