Everson Griffen DL MIN 2 Hrs
Griffen (neck) is active for Sunday's game versus the Packers.
Griffen failed to extend his sack streak to six contests last Sunday, but a new one could begin against Aaron Rodgers, who doesn't mind taking a sack over making a fair worse mistake downfield.
Anthony Barr LB MIN 2 Hrs
Barr (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers.
As the Vikings' starting strongside linebacker, the rookie posted six tackles (three solo) in the team's previous matchup in Green Bay.
Joe Banyard RB MIN 2 Hrs
Banyard's teammate, Ben Tate, is active for Sunday's game against Green Bay.
It's not clear if Tate or Banyard will be the backup to Jerick McKinnon with Matt Asiata out with a concussion. However, it seems likely Tate will be the backup and have a goal-line role since he's active only a few days after being added to the roster.
Dominique Easley DL NE 2 Hrs
Easley (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Easley's absence is a hit to the Patriots' defensive line depth, but with 10 tackles and a sack in nine games to date, he's off the IDP radar.
LeGarrette Blount RB NE 2 Hrs1 Comment
Blount is active for Sunday's game against the Lions, the Providence Journal reports.
The newly re-acquired Blount's Week 12 role is unclear, but he does provide the Patriots with another power back option to go along with Jonas Gray, while fellow RB Shane Vereen is also a candidate to see his share of touches Sunday, notably in passing situations.
Josh Morgan WR CHI 2 Hrs
Morgan (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Morgan's 10 targets are scattered across four of his nine active outings this season, confirming his status as a fantasy non-entity.
Jonas Gray RB NE 2 Hrs
Gray (not injury related) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Gray missed Friday's practice due to tardiness, but ultimately it didn't affect his active status for Sunday's game. That said, while Gray is coming off a 201-yard, four-touchdown effort against the Colts this past Sunday, he figures to find running lanes harder to come by this weekend, with the Patriots facing a Lions' defense that is giving up a league-low average of 68.8 rushing yards per game to date. Moreover, there's the possibility that the team's Week 12 game-plan could feature more touches for Shane Vereen, who is adept at catching passes out of the backfield, with bruising back LeGarrette Blount now back with Patriots, in uniform, and also potentially in the mix for some carries Sunday.
Blidi Wreh-Wilson DB TEN 2 Hrs
Wreh-Wilson (back) is officially inactive for Sunday's game at Philadelphia.
Wreh-Wilson has been fairly productive on the year with 50 total tackles and one interception, but he is not available for IDP consideration today. Coty Sensabaugh should step into the starting lineup.
Alshon Jeffery WR CHI 2 Hrs
Jeffery (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Jeffery, who built up to a full practice by the end of the week, is good to go against a Buccaneers defense that has given up 13.7 YPC and 15 combined touchdowns to wideouts in 10 contests this season.
Derrick Morgan LB TEN 2 Hrs
Morgan (knee) is active for Sunday's game at Philadelphia.
If Morgan is one of your IDP options, he is available for consideration, but he may be less than 100% since being limited in practice this week.
