OUTTrevor Siemian QB DEN (11) 10 minutes ago
Siemian has shed his walking boot and hopes he'll be healthy enough to play Sunday against the Titans, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
Siemian missed Sunday's win over the Jaguars, but he reportedly is now moving around better, and news that he's no longer wearing a walking boot works to support that notion. According to coach Gary Kubiak, Siemian will be evaluated on a day-to-day basis this week, Broncos Vice President of Public Relations Patrick Smyth reports. Knowing that, fantasy owners can expect to receive daily updates on Siemian's condition and accompanying practice involvement in the buildup to Sunday's game in Tennessee.
QMohamed Sanu WR ATL (11) 20 minutes ago
Sanu, who injured his groin Sunday against the Chiefs, could practice Thursday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
Sanu finished with two catches for 26 yards in Sunday's contest, and although he joined teammate Julio Jones (toe) in surfacing with an injury, his ailment might not cause him to miss any action. While that would obviously bode well for the Falcons' pass-catching options, Sanu's involvement in practice this week will still need to be monitored before shaping expectations of him for this Sunday's game versus the Rams.
DeMarco Murray RB TEN (13) 31 minutes ago
Head coach Mike Mularkey said Monday that Murray's sore toe improved during the Titans' bye week, Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com reports.
Murray's toe injury did not prevent him from playing in the Titans' last game in Week 12, but it may have played a role in him totaling just 43 yards in 17 carries in the contest. Murray is presumably healthier now after a week off, and Mularkey indicated he will continue seeing the bulk of the work in the Titans' backfield despite the recent success of rookie running back Derrick Henry.
OUTJeremy Maclin WR KC (5) 37 minutes ago
The Chiefs are optimistic about Maclin's (groin) chances of returning for Thursday's game against the Raiders, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Maclin has been sidelined by a groin problem since Week 9, but he appears to be edging closer to a return after being a limited participant in practice last week. Although the Chiefs only have a few practices before they're scheduled to play the Raiders this Thursday, the team seems encouraged by Maclin's recent progress. Whether that culminates in a return to game action remains to be seen, so Maclin's situation will have to continue to be tracked for further updates prior to Kansas City's early Week 14 kickoff.
QJulio Jones WR ATL (11) 44 minutes ago1 Comment
Jones suffered a turf toe injury during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, but Falcons coach Dan Quinn said the ailment doesn't appear serious, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.
Jones downplayed the issue following Sunday's contest, describing it as just another nagging injury that he'll play through, but this news is hardly what Jones' fantasy owners would've wanted heading into their playoffs. Despite missing some plays late in Sunday's game, Jones still finished with seven catches for 113 yards on his nine targets. Although he intends to play through any discomfort, Jones' practice participation should bare monitoring this week as the Falcons prepare to take on the Rams this Sunday.
IRDRobert Griffin QB CLE (13) 1 hour ago
Griffin (shoulder) is a candidate to start Sunday's game against the Bengals, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
The Browns will not make a final call on their starting quarterback for Week 14 for a few more days, but if Griffin -- the team's Week 1 starter who was cleared for contact during last week's bye -- is able to make it through practice this week without a setback, it seems there is a good chance he gets the nod over Josh McCown and Cody Kessler as the Browns look to pick up their first win of the season.
QDoug Martin RB TB (6) 1 hour ago
Martin (undisclosed) logged just 36 of 65 offensive snaps during Sunday's win at San Diego, likely due to getting "bent back" on a third-quarter carry, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Martin was on pace for a fruitful outing prior to his departure, boasting 68 yards from scrimmage and a two-yard touchdown plunge on 18 touches. He yielded backfield duties to Jacquizz Rodgers the rest of the way, and while head coach Dirk Koetter said afterward that Martin was "doing fine," the backfield equation again seems to be in flux in Tampa Bay, especially with Charles Sims (knee) available for activation from IR. The upcoming week of practice will aid in determining who among Martin, Rodgers, and Sims gets the call, but the former is the presumptive favorite, assuming he's healthy.
Bruce Irvin LB OAK (10) 1 hour ago
Irvin notched five tackles (four solo) and one sack during Sunday's win over the Bills.
Irvin now has a sack in each of the Raiders' last three games after a bit of a dry spell during the middle on the season. Irvin along with defensive end Khalil Mack are wreaking havoc on opposing offensive lines, and they'll look to make it happen again next week versus the Chiefs.
Khalil Mack DL OAK (10) 1 hour ago
Mack recorded seven tackles (four solo), one sack, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery during Sunday's win over the Bills.
Mack extended his impressive sack streak to seven games Sunday, and he has now forced four fumbles throughout his past five games. He's doing everything he can to put his name in consideration for defensive player of the year honors, and has become an elite IDP option at defensive end in the process. He'll look to ride the momentum in next week's game against the Chiefs.
Seth Roberts WR OAK (10) 1 hour ago
Roberts caught two passes on five targets for 18 yards during Sunday's win over the Bills.
Roberts was held in check Week 13 while fellow receiver Michael Crabtree saw a majority of the volume in the Raiders' passing game. Despite finding the end zone five times so far this season, Roberts' fantasy value remains limited to deeper leagues.
