T. Y. Hilton WR IND 3 Hrs
Hilton (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports.
With Hilton out Sunday, Donte Moncrief is a candidate to see added looks in the Colts' Week 16 offense, while working with fellow wideouts Hakeem Nicks and Reggie Wayne.
DeMarco Murray RB DAL 3 Hrs22 Comments
Murray (hand) is listed as active Sunday against the Giants, Lindsey Jones of USA Today reports.
Upholding the optimism displayed by the Jones family all week, Murray is suiting up after breaking a bone in his left hand last Sunday. As expected, Murray's hand will be protected by a padded glove, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, but the protection may not be enough to salvage his normal pass-catching prowess. Moreover, the possibility exists for an aggravation of the injury, meaning Joseph Randle is a decent bet to make his presence felt in some capacity.
Bryce Brown RB BUF 3 Hrs
Brown is inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
Brown is the odd man out in the Bills' Week 16 backfield, with C.J. Spiller in uniform for the team on Sunday.
C. J. Spiller RB BUF 3 Hrs
Spiller (collarbone) is active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
With some uncertainty regarding Spiller's potential workload in his return to the Bills' backfield -- with Fred Jackson and Anthony Dixon also in the mix -- he's a speculative Week 16 play, but a respectable showing Sunday on Spiller's part would put him back on the fantasy map in advance of the team's regular season finale.
Pierre Thomas RB NO 3 Hrs
Thomas (foot) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Falcons, ESPN's Mike Triplett reports.
With Thomas on the shelf, look for the Saints to lean heavily on Mark Ingram in the rushing attacking, with Khiry Robinson set to see work in a complementary role. Not much is known regarding the exact nature of Thomas's injury at the moment, but we'll be sure to monitor his practice status in advance of Week 17.
Percy Harvin WR NYJ 3 Hrs
Harvin was forced out of Sunday's game against the Patriots with a rib injury, Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports.
Prior to his exit from Sunday's contest, Harvin had recorded four catches for 44 yards and carried twice for one yard.
Steven Jackson RB ATL 4 Hrs
Jackson (quad) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's matchup against the Saints.
Jackson exited the game in the second quarter, and it looks like the Falcons won't be taking any chances with his return. Look for a combination of Jacquizz Rodgers and Devonta Freeman to take over in the Atlanta backfield for the remainder of the contest.
Chris Long DL STL 4 Hrs
Long (ankle) is listed as active Sunday versus the Giants, Myle Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.
Long has increased his percentage of defense snaps in three consecutive games since returning to action in Week 13, taking the field for 48 of 68 snaps (70.6 percent) in the Rams' last outing on Dec. 11. With four solo tackles, one sack, and one fumble recovery to date, though, he has yet to uphold his standard from previous seasons.
Jameel McClain LB NYG 4 Hrs
McClain (knee) is active for Sunday's game in St. Louis, the Giants' official site reports.
Since assuming duty as the Giants' starting middle linebacker for good in Week 9, McClain has notched at least six tackles in six of seven outings, totaling 61 (41 solo) in all to go with two sacks and one forced fumble. As a result, he should continue to be utilized in IDP formats.
Johnny Manziel QB CLE 4 Hrs1 Comment
Manziel was forced out of Sunday's game against the Panthers in the second quarter with an injured hamstring, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Manziel, who was replaced by Brian Hoyer, had completed 3-of-8 passes for 32 yards prior to heading to the locker room to be checked out by the Browns' medical staff.
