Visanthe Shiancoe TE TEN 6 Hrs
Titans waived TE Visanthe Shiancoe.
C Kevin Matthews was re-signed in a corresponding roster move. Shiancoe's release is an indication Delanie Walker (concussion) will be ready for Week 15. Shiancoe played 27 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Broncos. Going on 33, Shiancoe is near the end of the line.
Jawan Jamison RB WAS 6 Hrs
Redskins promoted RB Jawan Jamison from the practice squad.
The Redskins needed a running back after Evan Royster was sent to injured reserve with an ankle injury. A seventh-round pick in April's draft, Jamison was released at final cuts after an unimpressive training camp. He's unlikely to get any run in the season's final three games.
Ryan Seymour SF 7 Hrs
49ers signed OG Ryan Seymour.
A seventh-round pick in April's draft, Seymour was signed off the Seahawks' practice squad. Seattle and San Francisco love to steal players from each other. Seymour will provide interior line depth. Whether he's active for Week 15 will depend on LG Mike Iupati's (knee) status.
Tank Carradine LB SF 7 Hrs
49ers placed DE Tank Carradine on injured reserve, ending his season.
A year removed from tearing his ACL during his senior year at Florida State, Carradine was activated off the reserve/NFI list in October, but had yet to be active. The No. 40 overall pick of April's draft, Carradine wasn't selected with contributing in 2013 in mind. It's unclear where his knee is at, but in theory, Carradine should be a full participant in the 49ers' offseason program. He'll likely begin 2014 as a situational pass rusher.
Robert Griffin QB WAS 7 Hrs
The Washington Post reports Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has no plans to interfere with the team's Week 15 quarterback decision.
It's been widely speculated that coach Mike Shanahan's bizarre Monday soliloquy about potentially benching Robert Griffin III for Weeks 15-17 to preserve his health was a power play aimed at getting Snyder to intervene - either via overruling Shanahan or firing him - but the owner isn't going to take the bait. Practically begging to be fired, Shanny will now have to look for another way to ruffle his boss' feathers. He's supposedly going to announce his quarterback decision on Wednesday. The situation in Washington is deteriorating into a pathetic melodrama.
Eddie Royal WR SD 7 Hrs
Eddie Royal (toe) returned to Chargers practice Tuesday.
It's Royal's first practice of any kind since October, and a sure sign he'll be ready to go on a short week. Royal sat out in Week 13, but returned for Sunday's win over the Giants, catching three passes for 13 yards. He's not on the fantasy radar in 12-team leagues.
