Randall Cobb WR GB 16 Hrs
Packers coach Mike McCarthy says next Tuesday will be a "big day" for Randall Cobb's (leg, short-term I.R.) rest-of-season availability.
The Packers are going to "see how it sorts out then." Cobb remains roster worthy only in deeper leagues as a possible Week 16 fantasy start, though that's a long shot. Cobb still hasn't even been cleared to practice.
Aaron Rodgers QB GB 16 Hrs
Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) has been formally ruled out for Week 14.
It's conceivable that the Packers will determine Rodgers' Weeks 15-17 availability based solely on their Week 14 result. If Matt Flynn "leads" them to a Sunday victory versus Atlanta, they'll bring Rodgers back for the final three games in an effort to make an unlikely playoff push. If they lose to the Falcons, Rodgers could be shut down for the year. Expect coach Mike McCarthy to give another update on Rodgers' health at his Monday day-after presser.
Eddie Royal WR SD 16 Hrs
Eddie Royal (chest/toe) missed practice again Friday.
San Diego's slot receiver hasn't practiced since October, and didn't play in last week's game. His Week 14 status is up in the air. With Royal out, the Chargers have begun playing two-tight end offense featuring Ladarius Green.
Jordan Reed TE WAS 16 Hrs
Jordan Reed (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Chiefs.
The good news is Reed is practicing. The bad news is he had a setback the day before last week's game after being cleared to play, and was shut down for the second straight week. Reed will be a locked-in fantasy TE1 if active against Kansas City. Chiefs-Skins has a 1PM ET start, so we'll know his status early.
Andre Ellington RB ARI 16 Hrs
Andre Ellington (knee) participated in Cardinals practice again Friday.
While we wouldn't be overly comfortable using Ellington in a fantasy league as he attempts to play through an injury, his ability to bounce back and practice again after Thursday's return suggests he's squarely on track to play against the Rams. Fellow rookie Stepfan Taylor will go back to the bench after replacing Ellington in the Cards' passing-back role last week.
