Brandon Bostick TE GB 6 Hrs

Bostick (hip) participated in Wednesday's practice, Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin reports.

Sidelined since Week 10 due to a hip injury, Bostick is trending in the right direction with an appearance in drills. His activity level has yet to be revealed, though, which will ultimately set the table for his potential to take the field Sunday against the Patriots.

Ryan Mallett QB HOU 6 Hrs

Mallett (torn right pectoral muscle) has been placed on IR, the Texans' official site reports.

Meanwhile, the team confirmed the addition of fellow QB Thad Lewis, with Mallett's injury paving the way for Ryan Fitzpatrick to regain the Texans' starting QB job.

Jordan Reed TE WAS 6 Hrs

Reed (hamstring) took part in individual drills at Wednesday's practice, John Keim of reports.

In Week 11, Reed strained his right hamstring, which has nixed any activity in the meantime. His return is an encouraging sign that the ailment is waning, but as the week unfolds, we'll get a better indication of his ability to suit up Sunday at Indianapolis.

Karlos Dansby LB CLE 6 Hrs

Coach Mike Pettine noted Wednesday that Dansby (knee) is getting closer to a return, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

While Dansby should still be considered iffy for Sunday's game against the Bills, Pettine indicated Wednesday that at this stage, the Browns aren't yet ready to rule the linebacker out for this week.

Jordan Cameron TE CLE 6 Hrs

Coach Mike Pettine indicated Wednesday that Cameron (concussion) is still day-to-day, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

While Cameron appears to be progressing toward a possible return as soon as this weekend, Pettine noted "we're looking for him to practice symptom-free for a couple of days in a row." In such a scenario, and in the absence of any setbacks, Cameron could potentially draw a questionable, or even a probable injury designation, for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Ron Parker DB KC 6 Hrs

Parker will start at strong safety Sunday in place of Eric Berry (chest), Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.

Parker was Berry's fill-in earlier in the season when he was dealing with a high-ankle sprain, and he will now shift back to the spot with Berry out for the season.

Anthony Fasano TE KC 6 Hrs

Fasano (knee) will not participate in practice Wednesday, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.

While Fasano's reason for missing is unclear at this point, it could be related to the knee injury that caused him to miss Week 11 against the Seahawks. If he happened to be unavailable Sunday against the Broncos, Travis Kelce could be in line for extra snaps as the team's top tight end.

Junior Hemingway WR KC 6 Hrs

Hemingway (concussion) will not practice Wednesday, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.

Hemingway suffered a concussion in Thursday's game against the Raiders. The Chiefs are already down A.J. Jenkins and likely Donnie Avery at wide receiver, meaning Jason Avant could have a big role in the offense if Hemingway can't go.

Kevin Vickerson DL KC 6 Hrs

Vickerson (calf) will not practice Wednesday, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.

Vickerson's injury likely originated in Thursday's game against the Raiders, where he contributed by batting down a pass. The 31-year-old's status for Sunday's games against the Broncos is unclear at this point.

Charles Clay TE MIA 7 Hrs

Clay (hamstring/knee) was spotted at practice Wednesday, the Palm Beach Post reports.

Clay missed this past Sunday's game against the Broncos, but his presence on the field Wednesday -- in any capacity -- is a positive sign with regard to his potential availability for Monday's game against the Jets.
