Daniel Thomas RB MIA 19 Hrs
Thomas (knee) did not practice Thursday, the Sun-Sentinel reports.
More on Thomas' status Friday, though the running back is off the fantasy radar in most cases as long as Lamar Miller remains healthy.
DeMarco Murray RB DAL 19 Hrs
Murray (hand) was limited in practice Thursday, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Murray was contained to a handful of individual drills Wednesday but was still deemed a non-participant. In lockstep with the upgrade in activity, he seemingly participated in all individual work and perhaps some team drills. However, his status remains clouded by the prospect of the broken bone in his left hand, which must be protected in some fashion in order to play Sunday against the Colts. If Friday's injury report doesn't provide the necessary clarity, a game-time decision could very well come to pass.
Andrew Hawkins WR CLE 19 Hrs
Hawkins missed Thursday's practice due to an illness, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
We'll revisit Hawkins' status Friday, but with no injury in play, we'd imagine that the wideout should be able to bounce back from his illness in time to be ready for Sunday's game against the Panthers.
Eddie Lacy RB GB 19 Hrs
Lacy was limited in practice Thursday, Paul Imig of FOX Sports Wisconsin reports. Afterward, Lacy told Mike Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that his eye concern is related to irritation from a contact lens.
Now that his eye issue is common knowledge, Lacy further stated that he doesn't intend to wear goggles Sunday at Tampa Bay but will instead power through it using a contact. While he clearly intends to play in Week 16, the final injury report of the week should clear up his availability.
K. J. Wright LB SEA 19 Hrs
Wright signed a four-year extension with the Seahawks on Thursday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.
Wright, who is four tackles shy of the first 100-tackle campaign of his career, has solidified outside linebacker in Seattle across from Bruce Irvin.
Toby Gerhart RB JAC 19 Hrs
Gerhart could be in for a slightly heavier workload Thursday against the Titans.
Coach Gus Bradley indicated that Gerhart could receive more carries than the 13 he saw against the Ravens on Sunday, when he rushed for a season-high 54 yards. Gerhart will continue to share rushing duties with Storm Johnson and Jordan Todman, but Bradley said, "it would not surprise me if you saw him (Gerhart) get a little bit more work." Tennessee allows the most rushing yards of any team in the NFL at 139.6 per game.
Philip Rivers QB SD 20 Hrs
Rivers (chest, back) practiced fully Thursday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Gehlken further notes that coach Mike McCoy indicated that Rivers "had an outstanding day" at practice Thursday, while adding that he expects the QB be ready to go Saturday night against the 49ers.
Chris Conte DB CHI 20 Hrs
Conte (back) was limited in Thursday's practice.
For a second day in a row, Conte's practice reps were capped, which isn't surprising after a DNP in Week 15. If he's able to take the field Sunday against the Lions, he'll likely slot into his typical spot at free safety.
Denard Robinson RB JAC 20 Hrs
Robinson was placed on IR on Wednesday, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Robinson suffered a partially torn ligament in his foot, which led to him being ruled out for the final three games of the season. He faces a 6-to-8 week recovery timetable, so the injury shouldn't linger into next season. Jacksonville did not immediately make a corresponding move, leaving the team with 52 active players.
Alshon Jeffery WR CHI 20 Hrs2 Comments
Jeffery (non-injury) didn't take part in practice Thursday.
The reason for Jeffery's absence isn't clear, but an ailment has been ruled out as the impetus. As the week continues and Friday's practice participation report is released, the wideout's status for Sunday's contest against the Lions may experience clarification.
