Kyle Fuller DB CHI 9 Hrs
Fuller (knee) is expected to play in Thursday's game against the Lions, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.
A final call on Fuller's status will not be made until Thursday, but it appears he will be available for the Bears' Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Lions.
Cortland Finnegan DB MIA 10 Hrs
Finnegan (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday, according to the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley.
Finnegan still isn't at full speed but his return to practice is a positive sign for his chances of playing Monday night versus the Jets.
Jared Cook TE STL 10 Hrs
Cook (back) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, the Rams' official site reports.
Cook's usage has ramped up with Shaun Hill under center the past two games, but the tight end has failed to do much with 14 targets, recording six receptions for 46 yards. If Cook continues to earn such a substantial workload, though, an outburst could soon come to pass.
Kenny Britt WR STL 10 Hrs
Britt (back) didn't take part in practice Wednesday, the Rams' official site reports.
Britt has brushed off a number of minor ailments to his knee, ankle, and hip this season, but no DNP has been handed down from high. A 128-yard outburst in Week 11 aside, he has recorded between 31 and 52 yards receiving in four of the past five games. However, with no real game breaker at Shaun Hill's disposal, Britt is a decent bet to go off in a given week. The final injury report of the week will reveal whether such an outcome is possible.
Matt Asiata RB MIN 10 Hrs
Asiata was limited in practice Wednesday, after receiving clearance from the league's concussion protocol, Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
The Vikings will understandably ease Asiata into drills in order to avoid a setback, and a cap could hold throughout the week. If he gets the all clear for Sunday's game versus the Panthers, he would likely supplant Joe Banyard as the goal-line back, which could be fruitful against a defense that has given up 14 touchdowns in 11 outings this season.
Jerick McKinnon RB MIN 10 Hrs
McKinnon (back) missed Wednesday's practice, the Vikings' official site reports.
McKinnon is entering his third week with a lower back injury, which will continue to be managed via rest during practice. In the previous two games, he's tallied 23 rushes for 92 yards and seven receptions (on 10 targets) for 29 yards. If he upholds past weeks and takes the field Sunday, he'll attempt to break a Panthers run defense that has been more stingy over the last four contests, surrendering 3.1 YPC but four rushing touchdowns to running backs.
Jordan Reed TE WAS 11 Hrs
Reed (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Washington's official site reports.
In his first appearance on the field since Week 11, Reed's activity level was predictably capped. No matter, according to Chris Russell of ESPN 980 Washington, the tight end intends to suit up Sunday at Indianapolis, which could very well be confirmed on the final injury report of the week.
Odell Beckham WR NYG 11 Hrs
Beckham (back) practiced in full Wednesday, the Giants' official site reports.
Beckham followed through with coach Tom Coughlin's contention that the rookie wideout would be a "full go" in drills to start the week. With the Jaguars next on the docket, he'll aim to continue his recent tear against a defense that has allowed a striking 17.6 YPC and six touchdowns to wide receivers over the last four contests.
Zach Ertz TE PHI 11 Hrs1 Comment
Ertz (oblique) is probable for Thursday's game against the Cowboys, the Eagles' official site reports.
Ertz has recorded four catches on six targets in each of his last two games, but he's a hit-or-miss option these days, thanks to the presence of fellow TE Brent Celek.
Jordan Matthews WR PHI 11 Hrs
Matthews (knee) is probable for Thursday's game against the Cowboys, the Eagles' official site reports.
While Matthews had a three-game touchdown streak snapped this past Sunday against the Titans, the productive rookie still managed to catch six passes for 77 yards, while seeing eight targets for the second contest in a row.
