Benjamin (knee) did not take part in Friday's practice, Joe Buscaglia of 7 ABC Buffalo reports.

EDGE Analysis

Unless Benjamin gets some work in behind the scenes Friday he will not practice at all this week, so the chances of him taking the field this week are not promising. Expect an official update on Benjamin's Week 12 status following the conclusion of Friday's session.

Jake Elliott

Elliott was cleared from the concussion protocol Friday morning, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Elliott put in a full practice Thursday, so clearing the concussion protocol was the last hurdle he needed to cross before being given the green light to play in Week 12. He will have a favorable matchup this week, squaring off against a Bears team that allowed opposing kickers to total seven field goals -- three between 40-49 yards and two from 50 yards and beyond -- and seven extra points over its last three games.

OUTCordy Glenn
BUF (6)
2 hours ago

Glenn (foot/ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Kansas City, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rookie Dion Dawkins, who's done a pretty solid job during Glenn's absences, will serve as the starting left tackle again. However, Glenn is the Bills' best tackle and the offense takes a step back when he's not in there, which will become five missed games once Sunday rolls around.

Travaris Cadet
RB BUF (6)
2 hours ago

Cadet's teammate Mike Tolbert (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

That means Cadet will serve as the exclusive backup to LeSean McCoy again, where he'll probably see some looks in the passing game. The Bills have been giving McCoy nearly all the carries all season, but there's a chance Cadet could see some of those as well if the game gets out of hand, as it has for the Bills in the last three games, all losses.

OUTMike Tolbert
RB BUF (6)
2 hours ago

Tolbert (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Joe Buscaglia of 7 ABC Buffalo reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tolbert practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, but that was the only activity he got in over the last two weeks, so he will sit out for the second time in as many games. With Tolbert out for Week 12, LeSean McCoy should receive the short-yardage work Tolbert generally sees, and Travaris Cadet will assume the backup running back duties for the second straight week.

OUTDonte Deayon
DB NYG (8)
3 hours ago

Deayon was diagnosed with a broken right forearm after exiting Thursday's 20-10 loss to the Redskins, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Deayon also injured his jaw in the contest, but the broken forearm is the greater concern for the first-year cornerback, whose season is most likely over. The Boise State product has made four appearances for the Giants in 2017, collecting 10 tackles and one pass breakup.

Jaylon Smith
LB DAL (6)
3 hours ago

Smith recorded a team-high eight tackles in Thursday's 28-6 loss to the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

It was his highest total since Week 4. Smith is no longer in the starting lineup, even with Sean Lee (hamstring) sidelined, but if he continues making plays he'll see his snap count start trending back up at the expense of veteran Justin Durant.

Jason Witten
TE DAL (6)
3 hours ago

Witten caught all seven of his targets for 44 yards in Thursday's 28-6 loss to the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

He was once again Dak Prescott's favorite checkdown option, but the aging tight end wasn't able to do much with the ball after the catch. Witten's erratic target volume -- he's alternated games of seven targets and one target over the last month -- make him a risky fantasy play even in PPR formats, but with injuries mounting on the Cowboys' offensive line, his role could become steadier down the stretch as Prescott finds himself with less time in the pocket.

QMatthew Stafford
QB DET (7)
3 hours ago

Stafford said Thursday that his right ankle was "not 100 percent" after he injured it during the Lions' 30-23 loss to the Vikings, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stafford hurt his ankle early in the fourth quarter on his 43-yard touchdown pass to Marvin Jones, with the injury seemingly derailing the Lions' comeback effort. Though he remained in the contest, Stafford completed only three of six passes for seven yards the rest of the way, with his final third-down pass proving especially costly, as he overthrew an open Golden Tate on what was essentially a game-sealing interception. Though his Thanksgiving Day ended on a sour note, Stafford indicated that he expects to be "alright" for the Week 13 matchup with the Ravens, with the nine full off days in between games surely helping his cause.

Terrance Williams
WR DAL (6)
3 hours ago

Williams caught four of five targets for 54 yards in Thursday's 28-6 loss to the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Aside from a 38-yard grab in the fourth quarter when the Cowboys were trying to mount a desperate comeback, Williams and the entire passing game were ineffective on the day. It still resulted in his third best yardage total of the season, which speaks to how risky a fantasy play the 27-year-old is right now, especially with Dak Prescott having the worst stretch of his career.
