Week 12 Players in the News


The Latest News

Quarterback

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Tyrod Taylor (BUF) partially participated in Wednesday's practice. Taylor (shoulder) said he only did handoffs Wednesday, Nov. 25, and plans to throw in practice Thursday, Nov. 26. Taylor is feeling better and likely to play in Week 12, according to head coach Rex Ryan. "I think Tyrod is going to play," Ryan said. "He feels better than he did. The doctors feel he's going to be just fine."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Johnny Manziel (CLE) Manziel's tenure with the Browns may not be over, according to head coach Mike Pettine. "I certainly hope not," Pettine said, when asked if Manziel has played his last game as a Brown. "He's made great progress and there was no better proof than last Sunday against Pittsburgh. But sometimes, you gotta take a step back to take a few forward. We told him yesterday - this isn't a dead end. This is a hurdle. It's an obstacle. So, part of success in athletics is dealing with adversity, and this will be an example of it."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Tony Romo (DAL) practiced fully on Wednesday and is expected to play this week.

Palmer faces his former team in Week 12. "It was time," Palmer said. "Anytime you are somewhere for five, six, seven, eight years, sometimes it is just time for a fresh start, a change, something new, and that's obviously what I thought, and obviously, the ownership there didn't - until the last second." Palmer said he informed Bengals owner Mike Brown of his intentions to move on after the 2010 season. "Just a culmination of things," Palmer said. "Some things that I had learned that ownership - just some things that built up over time, and it was just time for a change."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Matt Ryan (ATL) partially participated in Wednesday's practice.

Ryan said he will not dwell on his five-interception performance in Week 11 and is moving forward. "You can't worry about it," Ryan said. "Part of playing this position in this league is knowing that there will be times when you make mistakes and fall flat on your face. You just have to get up and keep playing and keep throwing." Ryan will have to try not to get so many of his passes tipped. "The batted balls, there were some poor decisions, there were balls going off of receivers hands," head coach Mike Smith said. "It was just one of those games where the ball wasn't going to bounce our way, and it didn't bounce our way. We were able to overcome that."

QB Matt Ryan (ATL) showed that he was comfortable running the no-huddle offense against the Tennessee Titans in Week 11, calling 45 to 50 plays out of the no-huddle attack. "I think Matt continues to show his (maturity) in terms of what he's able to handle," head coach Mike Smith said. "I thought he did a very good job running the no-huddle offense." Roddy White also became more involved, catching seven passes for a season-high 147 yards. Ryan threw for 316 yards and hooked up with seven different wideouts. It was the first time he has gone for two straight 300-plus yard games.

QB Matt Schaub (BAL) will visit with a foot specialist Wednesday, Nov. 23, to get another look at the right foot injury that could end his season. "He will make his trip to Charlotte tomorrow and he will be looked at Wednesday morning," head coach Gary Kubiak said. "We'll hold out hope on Matt ... He's in a boot. We're trying to keep him into what we're doing mentally."

Schaub was monitored by trainers as he took limited drop steps for about 15 to 20 minutes. “I was watching him from afar,” HC Gary Kubiak said. “He was two fields over, but from here he looked like he took a step forward. He was gingerly dropping and just trying to get back in the flow of planting his feet and making a throw.”

QB Matt Schaub (BAL) Schaub's damaged MCL in his left knee will keep him out longer than the 2-4 weeks initially projected for his recovery. HC Gary Kubiak said that at one point he didn't believe that Schaub would see the field again this season. "I guess I'm beginning to think and feel more confident that he will play this year," Kubiak said. "But we'll see; he's made a lot of progress this past week."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Jay Cutler (CHI) is out for this weekend's game.

QB Jay Cutler (CHI) A Chicago Bears source said there is no way that Josh McCown could push for Jay Cutler's job if McCown continues to play well. "No, Jay is our quarterback," the team source said. Cutler, however, continues to be out with a high ankle sprain and will not play in Week 12. Cutler said he hopes to be able to play in the team's Week 13 game but is not sure if he will able to play that week because there are some ligament issues in his injured ankle.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Jay Cutler (CHI) partially participated in Wednesday's practice. Cutler reiterated Wednesday, Nov. 21, that he's not sure if he'll be able to play in Week 12 as he recovers from a concussion, but he hopes to practice Thursday, Nov. 22. "I don't know, we'll see," Cutler said. "Going through the process, still a few things to go through this week and we'll see how it goes. Got to see some more doctors. Got to go out on the field and make sure you can exert yourself, and it's a personal thing making sure you feel OK." Bears head coach Lovie Smith said Cutler has been cleared to practice but will have to be cleared by an independent neurologist in order to play in a game.

QB Jay Cutler (CHI) said he was feeling good Tuesday, Nov. 20. Cutler said there are still more things that need to be done for him to be cleared, but did not rule himself out for Week 12. "I feel good, I feel good ... as normal as can be," Cutler. "We're going through the process (of being cleared to return). I met with them on Monday morning, the doctor.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Jay Cutler (CHI) is out for this weekend's game. Cutler had surgery on his right thumb Wednesday, Nov. 23, and he will be able to start his rehab in a couple of days. Head coach Lovie Smith still hopes to have Cutler back before the end of the season.

QB Jay Cutler (CHI) has an unstable fracture of the thumb on his throwing hand, according to a hand surgeon Mark Cohen. "Jay Cutler having the surgery now means the bone is broken and shifted or displaced and is not what they call a stable fracture," Cohen said. "It's an unstable fracture. On those you can't wait because they'll heal crooked or won't heal properly. The guy had a significant thumb injury, and he's got to have the bone fixed so the bone can heal. He has no choices. The doctors have no choices. This is cut-and-dried." Due to the specific nature of the injury, Cutler may need longer than six weeks to return to the lineup. "It will take the bone four to six weeks to heal and he will need at least a couple of weeks to get his mobility back and be able to grip a football with that thumb even after the six weeks," Cohen said. "I don't know the details of the schedule, but to me the earliest possible return to play for an injury like that is closer to eight weeks." The team is still holding out hope that he can return this season.

QB Andy Dalton (CIN) completed 16 of his 22 pass attempts for 220 yards and three touchdowns in Week 11 against the New Orleans Saints, posting a career-high passer rating of 143.9 in the process. He credited former Bengals quarterback Boomer Esiason for a conversation earlier in the week. "He said, 'Go play your game'," Dalton said Sunday, Nov. 16. "'Get this thing going. Don't let that Thursday game mean anything. Get everyone going because we're talented.' It meant a lot to me. I'm glad he reached out. He's somebody I can talk to."

QB Andy Dalton (CIN) is confident in the midst of a rough three-game stretch. "I'm confident as ever," Dalton said. "You have to have confidence. For us, as a team, we feel like we're in control of everything and that's where we want to be at this point." He had three touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns in Week 11 but compiled just 93 yards passing for a 48.1 percent completion rating, a 62.7 passer rating and a career-low 3.7 QBR rating. Dalton has tossed at least one interception in his last four games, including eight in his last three.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Johnny Manziel (CLE) Manziel's tenure with the Browns may not be over, according to head coach Mike Pettine. "I certainly hope not," Pettine said, when asked if Manziel has played his last game as a Brown. "He's made great progress and there was no better proof than last Sunday against Pittsburgh. But sometimes, you gotta take a step back to take a few forward. We told him yesterday - this isn't a dead end. This is a hurdle. It's an obstacle. So, part of success in athletics is dealing with adversity, and this will be an example of it."

QB Johnny Manziel (CLE) has been benched after a video surfaced of Manziel partying. Head coach Mike Pettine said, "It's disappointing - very," Pettine said.

*** Friday Update *** QB Vince Young (CLE) Titans head coach Jeff Fisher said Vince Young's apology via text message did not improve the standing between the player and coach, according to John Glennon, of The Tennessean. "I don't think so, no," Fisher said. "Someone could have grabbed his phone and texted." Fisher said he would eventually meet with Young; however, his focus is currently on the Houston Texans, the team's Week 12 opponent. "Of course there's going to be a meeting," Fisher said. "But right now we're on to the Texans. That's the most important thing."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Vince Young (CLE) Titans head coach Jeff Fisher said Vince Young apologized to him in a text message about his behavior after the team's Week 11 game, reports ESPN.com. Fisher said he would have preferred Young apologizing to him during a face-to-face meeting. A source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that the Young's text thanked Fisher for letting he play quarterback this season and wished the team good luck the rest of the season. Young also asked Fisher to have more faith and confidence in him.

QB Vince Young (CLE) said he is frustrated with head coach Jeff Fisher's lack of confidence in him, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Young felt he could have kept playing in Week 11 with his thumb injury. "It was very frustrating," Young said. Young said he knows he made mistakes dealing with the situation in Week 11 and didn't react the way he should have. However, he said his frustration of not playing and not having Fisher's faith had built up to the point in which he didn't know how to handle it. "It was just an awkward situation," Young said. "I just want to play football. I want to win games. I want to go to the Super Bowl. That's it." Meanwhile, Young denied throwing his jersey in the stands, as was widely reported. He said he was simply giving it to the daughter of team executive vice president Don MacLachlan. Young also denied throwing "half his uniform" in the stands, as Fisher said his quarterback did after the game. "I throw my shoes into the stands after every game, my hat into the stands after every game, my wristbands into the stands after every game," Young said. "If it's a problem, I'll pay for my jersey."

Titans owner Bud Adams said Fisher and Young will have to work together and get past their dispute after the team's Week 11 game, reports Jim Wyatt, of The Tennessean. "They are going to have to work together. I haven't given up on Vince, and I am sure Fisher hasn't either," Adams said. "Vince was upset and said some things he regretted after doing it, but you have to get to the bottom of it, straighten it out and move on. It is one of those things that happened. It has happened, it is all over with and we want to get Vince back and playing again for us. ... These things happen. I have been at this thing for a long time, about 51 years now. I have seen a lot of things happen and I don't want to go jumping off the building over something happening one time." Adams said he has no intention of releasing Young.

Adam Schefter, from ESPN, reported Monday via Twitter that Young will need season-ending thumb surgery and will be placed on Injured Reserve.

QB Vince Young (CLE) bruised his right quadriceps muscle. HC Jeff Fisher said the injury might limit Young in practice this week, but the quarterback is expected to play in week 12.

While head coach Romeo Crennel didn't make a decision publicly, Cassel indicated he knew which way his coach would go. But he wouldn't speculate on what his second benching of the season would mean for his future in Kansas City. "I'm not going to go into that right now," Cassel said. "I don't know what my future holds, but I'm going to continue to be the same guy. I'm going to continue to work hard and do whatever I can to help this team win. It's a tough situation. Anytime you're the quarterback. There is a lot of weight put on you whether it goes good or whether it goes bad."

QB Matt Cassel (DAL) The Chiefs have placed Matt Cassel (hand) on Injured Reserve, ending his 2011 season. In a corresponding move, the team signed practice squad WR Jeremy Horne to their active roster.

In injury-related news, Romo attempted some passes during Wednesday's practice without a splint on his injured pinkie finger. Romo said the splint gave him a few problems last week with his grip, and there's a chance he'll play without it Week 12. "Every day that goes by, it gets a little bit better," Romo said. "I feel confident it's definitely improving. We'll see." He also practiced fully on Thursday.

QB Tony Romo (DAL) admitted that the splint he wears to protect his injured pinkie finger makes it difficult to grip the ball and can affect some throws. "I threw a slant behind T.O. by a good yard or two, and I just couldn't get the grip on the ball. And you try and adjust with your shoulders on the throw and stuff, but I didn't adjust enough obviously," he said. HC Wade Phillips said Romo will continue to wear the brace through Thanksgiving. "He will have the splint on one more week and then after that, since we play two games in ten days it may be after that, but only a couple more games, it should be healed completely."

When asked if the injury was a big deal, he said: "Nah, it's all right. It's good." Romo was injured in the first half and had trouble squeezing the ball the rest of the game. Because the Cowboys' defense played so well, Romo decided not to take many chances and throw safer passes. Coach Wade Phillips said the injury was "no problem."

Manning will miss at least the next two weeks as he continues to recover from a partially torn plantar fascia and a rib injury, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Stafford has completed only 14 percent of his passes at least 20 yards downfield to Johnson the last two weeks, and he's thrown an interception on deep targets in each of the pair's four full games together.

Brooks was also able to avoid a sack making it the first game all season the Raiders did not have one against them.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Jason Campbell (FA) It's common for young QBs to look for their TEs as they learn the game. Jason Campbell is no exception to this phenomenon. Both of Campbell's TD passes in his first NFL start were to his TEs. Chris Cooley has already become a steady option for Campbell. "Cooley is a real tough guy, like on that touchdown catch," Campbell said. "He was a guy that was kind of out of the picture, but he worked his way all the way back down to the football to get open and make a touchdown catch." Campbell's other TD pass was to backup TE Todd Yoder.

He wants to be out there. We want backups that want to be out there. I'd much rather have that situation with Daunte than a guy that just tips his cap and says, 'Fine.' He still views himself as a starting quarterback, and rightfully so. But Matt's our starter, and when he's healthy enough, he'll be out there," head coach Jim Schwartz said.

*** Friday Update *** QB Brett Favre (FA) practiced fully on Friday and is expected to play this weekend.

Favre hinted that he thinks the team's offense has been too complicated this season, according to The Associated Press. "Every playbook across this league is way too thick," Favre said. "You never practice it all. How can you become consistent if you're running a different play every week out of a different formation with a different motion with different guys?" Interim head coach Leslie Frazier said he will welcome Favre's input with the offense. "He's a Hall of Fame quarterback. He's seen just about every defensive front and coverage that you can see, so his input will be invaluable," Frazier said. "But at the same time, there are going to be some ideas and some thoughts that may not necessarily be a part of what we do, and he'll understand that."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Brett Favre (FA) partially participated in Wednesday's practice.

Favre said he has no plans of leaving the team before the end of the season and hopes to play in the team's remaining six games, reports Judd Zulgad, of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "I want to finish on a high note if my body will allow me and I can play up to my expectations, my standards. I want to do it. After the game, I wasn't implying that I wouldn't do it. I want to get this team back on track and that's my goal," Favre said.

In other news, Favre is unlikely to be suspended for sending inappropriate texts and photos to former New York Jets employee Jenn Sterger, according to NFL Network's Jason LaCanfora. However, commissioner Roger Goodell is expected to hand down some sort of discipline before the end of the season.

*** Friday Update *** QB Brett Favre (FA) and HC Mike McCarthy both have indicated that all signs point to the quarterback being under center against the Seahawks even though he is listed as questionable with elbow and groin injuries. Favre fired tight spirals in practice Friday and even joked around by playing a little defense against wide receiver Donald Driver. The play of the 37-year-old quarterback, listed as questionable with groin and a nerve injury in his right elbow, comforted the coaching staff. "That guy's a gamer," offensive coordinator Jeff Jagodzinski said. "I've seen that guy with a torn knee and all that and still make the plays. I never doubt he'll be there." Favre said the only way he wouldn't play Monday is if the ball kept flinging out of his hand.

QB Brett Favre (FA) is expected to play this weekend. "I think his elbow is going to be fine," HC Mike McCarthy told reporters in Green Bay. "He's been in for treatment. We'll re-evaluate him Wednesday, but he doesn't seem very concerned about it."

QB Donovan McNabb (FA) HC Andy Reid said he hasn't thought about pulling Donovan McNabb in favor of backup Kevin Kolb. In a loss to the Giants and a tie against the Bengals, McNabb was intercepted a total of four times and lost a fumble. In those two games, he completed 45 of 94 passes (47.9 percent). His passer rating against the Giants was 80.1. Against the Bengals, it was 50.9 as he went 28 for 58 with three interceptions. "The easy thing is to point fingers at Donovan," Reid said. "I'm not saying he isn't responsible, but there are other people that also have a piece of that, and we need to get that straightened out."

*** Saturday Update *** QB Donovan McNabb (FA) will miss the game this Sunday against the New England Patriots because of a sprained ankle and injured thumb.

*** Friday Update *** QB Donovan McNabb (FA) did not practice on Friday and the feeling is that he's not expected to play this weekend. He'll be a game time decision though. "If I feel like he can get out there and function then I'd go that direction," Reid said. "He'd love to play. You just got to make sure that he's okay. I'm not going to put him out there with swollen ankles and swollen thumbs. I'm not going to do that. We'll just see how it goes here. Today's important, the rest of today is important, and then tomorrow. We'll just see how it goes."

*** Thursday Update *** QB Donovan McNabb (FA) rested his sprained right ankle on Thursday. The ankle injury moved in front of his swollen right thumb as the reason he might not be able to play this weekend. "Both things are sore, but right now the ankle is more swollen than the thumb," Reid said. "He had a little bit more swelling Tuesday. We're working to get that out of there." McNabb was noncommittal when asked if he would play this weekend. "It's hard to say right now," McNabb said. "I can definitely say it has progressed the last two days. I've been working with the training staff and I've tried to alleviate the pain and swelling." Shortly thereafter, McNabb described his sprain as severe. "Any sprained ankle is severe," McNabb said. "I think the way it swelled up, it kind of took me away from a lot of different things. A lot of us have had sprained ankles - severely sprained ankles - so it takes time. You want to make sure you have all your faculties intact before you get competitive again." As for McNabb's thumb, he is still not able to grip the football as well as he would like. "It was jammed, and the swelling just came quickly," McNabb said. "I guess that would be a positive."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Donovan McNabb (FA) sat out of Wednesday's practice with a swollen ankle and thumb on his throwing hand. His status remains up in the air for this Sunday. "Right now the ankle is a little more swollen than the thumb," HC Andy Reid said. "We'll take it day by day and see how he goes."

QB Donovan McNabb (FA) HC Andy Reid said Monday that an MRI revealed swelling in QB Donovan McNabb's injured ankle. However, he also has a swollen thumb on his throwing arm is just as much of a concern to Reid. "I'm as worried about the thumb as I am the ankle," Reid said. "Both are day-to-day situations." Reid said McNabb injured his right thumb at some point late in the first quarter and it swelled up later. McNabb left the game late in the second quarter with the ankle injury, which Reid reiterated is not a high ankle sprain. 'An MRI showed he has some swelling in there," Reid said. "We can kind of pinpoint the tender spots."

QB Donovan McNabb (FA) is out for the year with a torn ACL. Coach Andy Reid will make a decision here soon as to whether Jeff Garcia or A.J. Feeley gets the start. Garcia replaced McNabb Sunday after the injury.

QB Donovan McNabb (FA) is officially done for the season after the Eagles placed him on injured reserve Tuesday. McNabb will undergo surgery for a sports hernia.

*** Friday Update *** QB Jake Plummer (FA) A season-long slump that ended with back-to-back losses to the Chargers and Chiefs just might have finally cost Broncos QB Jake Plummer his starting job. HC Mike Shanahan isn't saying who will be under center when the Broncos host the Seahawks on Dec. 3, but the buzz is that he'll turn to QB Jay Cutler. "I'm the starter right now," Plummer said, "and if Mike feels that he wants to put Jay in there, then my play hasn't warranted him to not do it."

*** Saturday Update *** QB JaMarcus Russell (FA) will have to wait at least another week before getting a chance to start. Raiders HC Lane Kiffin said Russell will remain the No. 3 emergency quarterback for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. "I would phrase it as it's likely that the first time that JaMarcus will play will probably not be in a starting role," Kiffin said. "I would say that's safe to say. Most likely, if JaMarcus plays this year, it'll be in a limited role initially."

QB Matt Simms (FA) Jets head coach Rex Ryan said Matt Simms could receive more snaps with the first-team offense during practice.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB John Skelton (FA) will serve as the team's No. 3 quarterback behind Ryan Fitzpatrick and Rusty Smith. Skelton isn't expected to be active in Week 12 against the Oakland Raiders. "We thought we had a need just because of the way quarterbacks get hurt," head coach Mike Munchak said. "Rusty will go in if anything happens to Fitz, but this allows us to have somebody else here learning our offense in case we have another injury." The Titans would likely run a wildcat offense with Chris Johnson and Shonn Greene taking snaps if both Fitzpatrick and Smith are injured.

*** Thursday Update *** QB John Skelton (FA) said he is frustrated with being benched in favor of Ryan Lindley. "Obviously, losing six in a row is frustrating," Skelton said. "What transpired on Sunday and then now, the benching, obviously is frustrating." Lindley, meanwhile, said he is looking to improve as he sees more game action. "I told you guys that my main goal was to just get better every week," Lindley said. "I knew the chips were going to fall as they were. I don't think anybody can predict the future, so I didn't spend much time doing that. I just made sure if it ever happened, I was ready and I got better every week."

QB John Skelton (FA) Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt would not say who the starting quarterback will be for Week 12. John Skelton started Week 11 but was benched in favor of Ryan Lindley. Whisenhunt said Kevin Kolb (ribs) is working his way back from injury. However, Lindley is likely to remain the starter until QB Kevin Kolb (ribs) is able to return. "Statistically, obviously, there's nothing to write home about," Whisenhunt said of the rookie. "But he did a nice job I thought in a lot of areas - managing the game, handling the noise, doing some of the things he needed to do in protection. He looked comfortable in the pocket, made some good throws." Whisenhunt said he's currently undecided on the starting quarterback for Week 12, but he pulled Skelton out of the Week 11 contest after he missed a wide open Larry Fitzgerald in the end zone and said players needed to be held accountable for mistakes.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Troy Smith (FA) Smith, who has been confirmed as the team's starter for Week 12 against the Arizona Cardinals, has been sacked 11 times in 59 pass attempts in two games (one every 5.4 attempts), according to Eric Branch of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. Conversely, Alex Smith has attempted 242 passes and taken just 13 sacks (one every 18.6 attempts). "If you can avoid a sack, if you can avoid a costly mistake, you do just that," Troy Smith added. "I just have to continue to get better."

QB Aaron Rodgers (GB) is throwing without any pain in his collarbone, and he was seen tossing the ball around before the team's Week 11 game. He isn't experiencing pain while running either, but has yet to take any snaps. "I think the biggest issue is not the pain at this point," Rodgers said. "It is the risk of taking a shot like that and what it would do if (the collarbone) displaced. Obviously, I'd be out for the season and worried about any type of complications going forward." Scott Tolzien has already been named the starter in Week 12 against the Minnesota Vikings.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Matt Hasselbeck (IND) did not practice on Wednesday as expected. He is still on track to start this weekend.

QB Matt Hasselbeck (IND) HC Mike Holmgren said on Monday that Matt Hasselbeck would likely not practice much during the coming week, allowing him time to rest his injured ribs. "I talked about it with him today. What he has to do is prepare himself to play without getting the practice time. And I think he can do this. It's not unprecedented at the quarterback position. He can pull it off," Holmgren said.

*** Friday Update *** QB Matt Hasselbeck (IND) HC Mike Holmgren threw a curve ball earlier this week saying that Matt Hasselbeck has to prove he can run and cut effectively enough to earn the starting job for Week 12. Hasselbeck responded with his best practice since spraining his right knee in Week 7. "To me, it was decided on Monday. It wasn't like, 'OK, we've got to see him each day.' We did, but on Monday, I was thinking, 'He's all right.' ", QB Coach Jim Zorn said. Hasselbeck has not been named the starter officially, and is listed as probable on the team's injury report. Backup QB Seneca Wallace will play if should Hasselbeck suffer a setback.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Matt Hasselbeck (IND) HC Mike Holmgren said Wednesday it is not yet a certainty Hasselbeck will start Monday night's game against the Green Bay Packers. Hasselbeck, listed as probable, has to prove to Holmgren during practices this week that he can avoid pass rushers and escape more harm on his sprained right knee, which has caused him to miss the last four games. "Hasselbeck worked pretty well this morning. I think there is a good chance he'll play," Holmgren said. "We're going to put him through the tests. ... I've got to see him move and get out of trouble, run around a little bit." Holmgren is going to take the unusual step of having backup Seneca Wallace share first-team snaps with Hasselbeck this week. But Wallace, who has made his first four NFL starts while Hasselbeck has been out, is missing at least one day of work this week to be with his mother. Holmgren said on Monday that Linda Wallace is seriously ill. Unlike the Packers, the Seahawks are practicing on Thanksgiving Day.

QB Matt Hasselbeck (IND) is expected to play this weekend. "Matt, I think, will play in the football game," HC Mike Holmgren said Monday. Hasselbeck concurred with that prognosis. "I feel I'm right in that range where they can use me again, and hopefully they do," said Hasselbeck. "But it's really my job just to show that I can do some of the stuff that they're worried about: Can I avoid? Can I move around? Can I run? Those kinds of things."

*** Friday Update *** QB Tyler Palko (KC) Chiefs head coach Todd Haley is not yet ready to commit to Kyle Orton for the team's Week 13 game. Tyler Palko will start in Week 12, and he could remain the starter based on his performance. "It will depend on Tyler," Haley said. "He's worked hard. He understands the offense. There's a lot to be encouraged about. I'm excited to see the progression here Sunday night ... (Orton is) a smart guy. I was very clear to him about where he was coming and what he was coming into. Tyler is the starter, but the guy that gives us the best chance to win will always play at any position. Tyler understands that, and every other position understands that."

QB Tyler Palko (KC) Chiefs head coach Todd Haley was impressed with Tyler Palko, who finished 25 of 38 for 236 yards but three interceptions in Week 11. "Overall, I thought Tyler did a terrific job of handling the offense, the tempo, we were changing the tempo and trying to create some energy for our side," Haley said. "Interceptions are things that can't happen and sacks at inopportune times can't happen, but it's something to build on. He'll get better."

"If you can't be happy for your teammate's success you're playing the wrong sport. Go play tennis or golf or something," Smith said. "That's ridiculous, I think. That doesn't belong in team sports, in my opinion. It's the quarterback position. It gets a lot of attention. We're going to get talked about."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Alex Smith (KC) Lowell Cohen, of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, reports 49ers head coach Mike Singletary said he will limit how often Alex Smith is used out of the shotgun formation, instead continuing to rely on a run-first philosophy. "One of the worst things we could do right now is to put Alex Smith in shotgun and say, 'OK, let's go get it, guys,' and let him throw 40, 50 times a game," Singletary said. "Alex is throwing as well as any quarterback in the league right now. He is as accurate as any quarterback in the league. The smartest thing for us to do is not to take all of training camp and just throw it out and say, 'We're going to go to the shotgun.'"

QB Alex Smith (KC) Gwen Knapp, of the San Francisco Chronicle, reports Alex Smith said he does not think the team should change to the spread offense this late in the season even though they have had success in that offense in games earlier this season.

Kevin Lynch, of the San Francisco Chronicle, reports 49ers head coach Mike Singletary is hesitant to switch to a spread offense moving forward. "I don't care if we have to throw it 100 times a game, I really do not," Singletary said. "I don't care if we run the ball 100 times a game. Do I think that's better, yes. Why? Because if I'm throwing it 100 times a game, the chances are there are going to be some picks in there. I don't want to give the [other] team anything if I can. But I'm not opposed to that." He is also hesitant because he feels Alex Smith does not have enough repetitions with the spread offense in practice.

Adrian Peterson defended Ponder after he threw two interceptions against the Seattle Seahawks in a Week 11 loss. "You can't base it off of last game," Peterson said.

According to ESPN.com, the Eagles had their doubts about Michael Vick throughout the offseason. They looked into trading up for the No. 2 pick overall, to potentially pick Robert Griffin III, and they arranged a private workout with Ryan Tannehill before using their third-round pick on Nick Foles. The Eagles spent last offseason trying to upgrade at the quarterback position, and are expected to do the same thing this offseason as well.

*** Friday Update *** QB Michael Vick (PIT) Eagles head coach Andy Reid said the issue of dealing with the contract situation of Michael Vick will be dealt with at the appropriate time, according to Jonathan Tamari, of the Philadelphia Inquirer. However, the team has been limited by uncertainty over the NFL's labor dispute. "There'll be a time and a place (the contract) needs to be addressed and we'll address it," Reid said. "It's a crazy deal with the collective bargaining agreement ... we really haven't done anything with anybody, it's just a different year here."

*** Saturday Update *** QB Colin Kaepernick (SF) 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said that reports he's told Colin Kaepernick he's starting in Week 12 are not factual and offered no comment when asked if Kaepernick or Alex Smith knew who the starter would be. "We feel like there's no competitive advantage for us to release that information for our organization and our team," Harbaugh said. "Like any position, we don't get into what the roles going to be and how we're going to use it." It is widely believed that Kaepernick will get the start this weekend.

*** Friday Update *** QB Colin Kaepernick (SF) 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said he will not name a starting quarterback in Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints between Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Colin Kaepernick (SF) 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh reportedly has opted for Colin Kaepernick over Alex Smith in Week 12 is because he wants to find out what he has in Kaepernick. Harbaugh knows Smith isn't hard for opponents to prepare for, and he doesn't have a huge arm. Kaepernick, meanwhile, is a wildly athletic quarterback with clearly improving accuracy, and he is coming off a strong performance in Week 11.

QB Robert Griffin III (WAS) Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan disagreed with Robert Griffin III's comments that indicated the Philadelphia Eagles knew the Redskins' plays in Week 11. "Our first year everyone played us with eight-man fronts, sometimes almost nine-man fronts," Shanahan said. "When you do that you have guys wide open like we did last year. That's one reason the play-action was so good. This year (teams are saying), 'We're playing you more passing and you have to earn the right in that run game.' Which we've been able to do. You're not always going to get that deep ball so you have to dump it off and be patient. That's part of the NFL. No matter what quarterback you're going against, no matter what system you go against, you have to relate or adjust your game plan accordingly. That's one of the reasons we ran the ball so much against a team that was very good at stopping the run."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Rex Grossman (WAS) expects to be in uniform for the first time this season when the Chicago Bears visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. "Just to be able to suit up again will be a milestone for me," said Grossman, now the third-stringer behind rookie Kyle Orton and Jeff Blake. He practiced on Wednesday and is listed as questionable.

RB Chris Johnson (ARI) Titans head coach Mike Munchak said he holds the play of the offensive line accountable for Chris Johnson's struggles in Week 11. Johnson had just 13 yards on 12 carries. "As a group, for the limited time we had to run it, we didn't block well. We were very average and inconsistent and that's where you go when you do that for eight carries," Munchak said. "I'm not going to give any excuses. We would have liked to have had more opportunities, and that's my fault. So if you only get 10 carries, you've got to do a much better job than we did with 10 carries. So that starts with the offensive line, and anytime you have this conversation, it starts with them. They know that, and we need to do better than that."

RB Jalen Parmele (ARI) Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey said Jalen Parmele will continue to get most of playing time over Rashad Jennings while Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) is out.

*** Friday Update *** RB Chester Taylor (ARI) and his Vikings’ teammates and coaches insist he isn't running low on fuel after 10 games, but his diminishing rushing totals tell a different story. The Vikings' rushing game has been stagnant the past few weeks, particularly in the second halves of games, and Taylor's durability has been questioned. The Vikings insist Taylor isn't showing signs of fatigue, even though he has carried the ball more than all but two NFL running backs, Kansas City's Larry Johnson and Arizona's Edgerrin James. For now, the Vikings have no problem with the way Taylor is shouldering the load.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Ronnie Hillman (DEN) practiced fully on Wednesday.

RB Ronnie Hillman (DEN) will likely get the first crack at carries after the loss of Willis McGahee. However, pass blocking will remain the biggest factor in which running back sees the majority of work with McGahee out. "For a smaller guy, he's pretty feisty in protection," head coach John Fox said about Hillman. "That's the thing that's always hard to learn for a rookie." Lance Ball and Knowshon Moreno could also be mixed in. Moreno has been inactive for the last eight games but hasn't been injured. Hillman is not feeling any stress at the idea of taking over the starting running back job after Willis McGahee (knee) was lost to injury in Week 11. "If my number is called, then it's called and I'll go in and do my job," Hillman said. "There's no kind of stress factor."

RB Theo Riddick (DET) saw more playing time in Week 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers after Reggie Bush lost his second fumble in the last three games. However, head coach Jim Schwartz refuses to say that Bush was benched in the contest. "It was just a couple of plays," Schwartz said. "We didn't have Joique Bell at that time, he had gone out of the game. Reggie had been taking a lot of reps. We wanted to take a little bit of that load off of him. It wasn't more than anything there."

*** Saturday Update *** RB Kevin Smith (DET) may have a less serious ankle injury than had been feared. ProFootballTalk.com is reporting: "Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Smith has a mild sprain. He could be back next week, when the Lions face the Saints on Sunday Night Football." There are other reports that Smith's injury is a high ankle sprain which would keep him out longer. This one will be tough as Lions head coach Jim Schwartz is in the Belichick mold when it comes to releasing injury news. We'll monitor this one for you closely but likely won't have a lot more on this until next week when the Lions practice.

*** Friday Update *** RB Kevin Smith (DET) suffered an injury to his right ankle in Week 12. Smith said after the game that an X-ray was negative. "It wasn't that bad, it's just a matter of I couldn't cut," Smith said. "My X-ray came back negative ... I think we've just got to do further tests." The early reports were that it was a high ankle sprain but there are reports now that the injury might be less serious. Stay tuned.

HC Jim Zorn commented he would rather not deactivate Alexander for his first game in Seattle since being released by the Seahawks, but the head coach went on to say that the possibility exists because "having four running backs active would be a luxury."

RB Shaun Alexander (FA) said his left foot felt "great" after missing six games from a broken bone. But last season's MVP could only muster 37 rushing yards, and just nine in the first half in Seattle's 20-14 loss to the 49ers. His struggles are a matter of timing, he said. "The sooner I get back in there and catch up with the speed of the game, I would finally be realistic with what I can do." Alexander failed to convert a fourth down conversion, losing a yard on fourth and one with two minutes remaining.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Tiki Barber (FA) showed his frustration on Wednesday, lashing out against the play calling in the Monday night loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Barber said abandoning the running game was "a slap in his face and a sure way to lose more games." The Giants only called a total of 14 running plays during the game with Barber amassing 27 yards on 10 carries. "I am not here to be a cheerleader, someone who fades into the background," said Barber. "My job is to help this team win. The opportunities I get will dictate that."

*** Friday Update *** RB Tatum Bell (FA) For the third game in five weeks, Tatum Bell was inactive. He has been bothered by turf toe issues on both feet the past month, but he has been participating in all recent workouts. "It was the coaches' decision that they wanted me to be 100 percent," Tatum Bell said. "And not 60, 70, 80 or 90 percent. Next week I should be ready to go." A spot should be waiting for him as neither Mike Bell nor Damien Nash ran well against the Chiefs. Mike Bell gained just 28 yards on 10 carries and Nash had zero yards on four carries.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Tatum Bell (FA) practiced fully on Wednesday and has been upgraded to probable.

RB Tatum Bell (FA) HC Mike Shanahan said he wouldn't know the status of Tatum Bell for Thursday's game in Kansas City until he saw him practice this week. Bell has been a game-day inactive two of the past three games because of turf toes. "If Tatum's ready to go and he's full speed, he'll go," Shanahan said. "If he's hesitant and can't make the cut he's capable of making, we'll go another direction." Bell will continue to be evaluated on a daily basis after being scratched from the active roster Sunday night due to the turf-toe problems that have plagued him on both feet during the past month. "One of the reasons we went in a different direction this weekend is how these backs practiced," Shanahan said. "Both Mike and Damien practiced extremely well and looked quick and played that way."

RB Tatum Bell (FA) left Sunday's game because of a chest injury and did not participate Monday in special teams practice. Bell received treatment in the morning, and coach Shanahan said it was likely he could have practiced at least some. However, because of Bell's injury and only three days of practice before the game Thursday, Ron Dayne will be in uniform and available against the Cowboys.

RB Jahvid Best (FA) partially participated in Tuesday's practice.

RB Jahvid Best (FA) Best's turf toe injury has progressively gotten worse, according to Dave Birkett, of the Detroit Free Press. Best did not start and played a limited role in Week 11. He finished with three carries for a season-low two yards and had another 15 yards receiving. "Jahvid's been struggling with his toe since the Minnesota game," head coach Jim Schwartz said. "And it's been something that has, rather than progressively get better, it's been one of those ones that's progressively hindered him more and more. We tried to stop that slide and tried to limit his play time, get him in certain packages." Best said he expects to play in Week 12.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Chris Brown (FA) is expected to resume his role as LenDale White's primary backup and change of pace back now that Chris Henry has dropped his appeal. Henry will miss the next four games on NFL suspension.

*** Saturday Update *** RB Ronnie Brown (FA) HC Nick Saban said Saturday it would be "difficult" for Ronnie Brown to play against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Dec. 3 and that the running back may miss "several weeks" with his broken left hand. Brown had surgery Friday to stabilize a fracture in the second metacarpal. While it was a similar procedure to that of safety Travares Tillman - who had surgery on Monday is expected back to face the Jaguars - Saban said positional difference makes it harder for Brown to return as quickly. "His return is going to be based on the time he needs to get some healing relative to how we can protect his hand so that he can play his position," Saban said. "There's a pretty good chance this week is going to be a difficult (situation) and we'll go week to week and it may be several weeks before he gets back but we don't know that and nobody knows that right now."

*** Friday Update *** RB Ronnie Brown (FA) had surgery Friday to repair his broken left hand. The Dolphins did not specify a timetable for Brown's return, but the normal recovery time is one to four weeks.

RB Ronnie Brown (FA) practiced on Tuesday and is expected to play in the team’s Thanksgiving Day game. According to an AP report Monday, Coach Nick Saban said Brown emerged from Sunday's game "no worse for wear".

RB Michael Bush (FA) has carried 30 times in each of his past two games, and he might see another huge workload in Week 12 with Darren McFadden (foot) still uncertain, and Taiwan Jones (hamstring) nursing an injury. "That'd be 90 in three games. That's pretty good," head coach Hue Jackson said Monday, Nov. 21. Jackson said Bush didn't appear to be showing any signs of strain under the load. Bush is just 15 rushing yards shy of the team lead behind the injured McFadden.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Michael Bush (FA) is far from thrilled, but he is getting some work at FB in practice. "I kind of don't really want to talk about it or say nothing wrong," Bush said. "But we did some [fullback] today. There's nothing I can do. I told [HC Tom Cable] no the first time, you know? I guess it's either I do something or I don't. I don't know. It is what it is. Do I like it? Do I want to play there? Do I think I'm a fullback? No." Bush has been asked to play fullback more than once. It was first mentioned when Oren O'Neal was hurt in August. The talk picked up more when Justin Griffith went down for the season October 26th. Bush said he "never had the kind of mentality to go run into a wall." "I just want people to know what position I play," Bush said. "I'm not a fullback. I think it's a waste of my talent. I'm not trying to be any negative person that [doesn’t] want to help the team. I'm doing it so they can't say I'm not helping this team. What can you say?"

RB Michael Bush (FA) HC Tom Cable wants Michael Bush to convert to the FB position, though Bush is resisting the position change. "He can be a special, special fullback in this league," Cable said. "And we've talked about it with him, and I don't think it's something he's real comfortable with yet. We'll continue to do it. I think he wants to be on the field, and that may give him the opportunity to do that."

*** Thursday Update *** RB Michael Bush (FA) won’t play this year, but he will have a shot to be the team’s starting RB in 2008. “I talked to him about today he’s competing to be the starting running back next year, and he should go about every day that way,” HC Lane Kiffin said. “The way he works in the weight room, the way he pays attention in the meetings and how serious he prepares.”

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Michael Bush (FA) was expected to be activated this week (in place of either LaMont Jordan or Dominic Rhodes). However, he wasn't practicing with the team this morning, and the Raiders have chosen not to activate him. This means he can't play this season. A reason cited by HC Lane Kiffin for not activating Bush was that they didn't want a division rival (read Kansas City, who has a glaring need at the position) to sign either Jordan or Rhodes.

*** Friday Update *** RB Corey Dillon (FA) has indicated he won’t play Sunday against the Chiefs. He said he hoped to return next week, Dec. 4 against the Jets. “We’re going to see how it goes and see what I can do next week,” he said. “I’ve rested up, and I want to be close to 100 percent when I step back out there.”

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Corey Dillon (FA) partially participated in Wednesday’s practice and is questionable for this weekend.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Reuben Droughns (FA) is expected to start for the team this weekend. With Brandon Jacobs likely out and Derrick Ward still hobbled a bit, Droughns is the healthiest back on the roster. “I’m very excited,” Droughns said. “This is an opportunity for me and Ahmad Bradshaw. We’re going to go in there with confidence and hopefully we can keep up the pace.”

*** Friday Update *** RB Reuben Droughns (FA) HC Romeo Crennel said Friday that Reuben Droughns, who returned to practice Wednesday, is moving around "pretty decent" and Crennel thinks "he might be able to do something in the game." Even if Reuben Droughns is healthy enough to return Sunday against the Bengals, he'll probably sacrifice some of his carries to backup Jason Wright. Crennel indicated Wednesday the 1-2 punch of powerful Droughns and shifty Wright might help jumpstart the Browns' rushing offense. "If we can get everybody into the game, it would be intriguing to have that mix," Crennel said.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Reuben Droughns (FA) was dressed for practice Wednesday after missing the last week with a sprained foot. "I think he's better," HC Romeo Crennel said. "We'll see as the week goes along."

*** Friday Update *** RB Warrick Dunn (FA) practiced fully on Friday and is expected to play in Week 12.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Warrick Dunn (FA) practiced fully on Thursday. Dunn will be the feature back in Week 12 against the Lions, while the status of Cadillac Williams remains in question. Dunn had 20 carries for 53 yards last week, but has a 4.4 YPC for the season and feels up to the challenge - even without Earnest Graham available to take some of the heat off. "Actually, I think because of how the season went - going from sharing time with Earnest - if I have to carry the ball a little bit more in the second half of the year. It's only what? Six games? So I can do that."

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Warrick Dunn (FA) partially participated in Wednesday's practice.

*** Saturday Update *** RB Joe Echemandu (FA) is expected to be active for a game for the first time as a Raider on Sunday, HC Art Shell said. He takes the spot of injured starter RB LaMont Jordan, though RB Justin Fargas will assume Jordan's starting job. Echemandu has appeared in six games the past two seasons, four with the Browns in 2004 and two with the Vikings last season.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB DeShaun Foster (FA) and missed practice on Wednesday and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins. Foster, who hyperextended his left elbow last Sunday against the St. Louis Rams, will be reevaluated again Thursday.

RB DeShaun Foster (FA) said he hyper-extended his left elbow during Sunday’s game, but hopes to play this week against the Redskins. Foster appeared to be on his way to his third 100-yard rushing game of the season when he left the game in the second quarter. He finished with 63 yards on nine carries. There’s no word yet on whether Foster or rookie RB DeAngelo Williams will start against the Redskins.

*** Friday Update *** RB DeShaun Foster (FA) practiced on Thursday and Friday and has been upgraded to probable for this weekend.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB DeShaun Foster (FA) did not practice on Wednesday and is questionable to play this weekend.

*** Saturday Update *** RB Johnathan Franklin (FA) Packers running backs coach Alex Van Pelt said this week that RB Johnathan Franklin is not a forgotten man, and that the rookie would get another shot at some point. Franklin might offer a different dimension. "Obviously he's quite different than the other two, size-wise, quickness, ability to make guys miss," Van Pelt said Friday, Nov. 22. "Things like that that he brings to the table. I'll still say we'll see him before the year is out."

*** Friday Update *** RB Samkon Gado (FA) said he believes there’s a good chance he will start Sunday’s game at Philadelphia, as long as he finishes the week with strong practices. “I’ll speculate that, yeah, I will (start), because I’ve been getting in there first in the base package,” Gado said. “I will say the coaches have been very patient with me, but I don’t think it would be good for me to fumble again.” He did not fumble in practice this week.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Samkon Gado (FA) may lose his starting job due to excessive fumbling. "I'll wait until end of the week and see how he practices," Sherman said. Asked if he thought Gado was a fumbler, Sherman said he wasn't sure. "I don't know enough about him," Sherman said. "I didn't have him in mini-camp or training camp. Anything you see I'm seeing for first time."

RB Samkon Gado (FA) may have fumbled himself out of a job. He was benched Monday after another fumble and replaced by Tony Fisher.

*** Saturday Update *** RB Mike Goodson (FA) said Friday, Nov. 23, that he has shed the protective boot that he spent more than two weeks in while recovering from a high-ankle sprain. He said he is disappointed that he missed out on the opportunity to be the lead back while Darren McFadden has been sidelined. "You see McFadden go down, and I was the next guy in line," Goodson said. "You kind of want to get out there and show everybody what you can do, and then I go down with an ankle. The exact same injury (as McFadden), the exact same game." Goodson has been ruled out for the Week 12 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

*** Friday Update *** RB Mike Goodson (FA) is out for this weekend's game.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Mike Goodson (FA) did not practice on Thursday .

*** Friday Update *** RB Jonas Gray (FA) did not practice on Friday but is still expected to play this week. Gray, however, overslept and might be subject to discipline in the game vs. Detroit. He wasn't a good play against the top-end Lions rush defense anyway, so this should give you the extra nudge to bench him.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Jonas Gray (FA) The Patriots signed free-agent running back LeGarrette Blount to a two-year deal for the veteran's minimum plus incentives Thursday, Nov. 20. This is likely to cap Jonas Gray's ceiling, although to be honest, he wasn't going to be hitting 30-plus carries again any time soon anyway. Shane Vereen is still is still the better play, although that just means a high-end RB3. Gray is really just an RB4 with some upside.

RB Jonas Gray (FA) rushed for a career-high 199 yards and scored a franchise-record four touchdowns in Week 11. Gray was on the field for 53 snaps and carried the ball 38 times.

RB Ahman Green (FA) may not play this week or the rest of the season for that matter. HC Gary Kubiak said waiting on Green's injury to heal is becoming harder and harder when other areas on the team need to be addressed. "But we're trying to be as patient as we can and make sure that we give him every opportunity to feel like he can fight through this and help us before we would make a decision of that nature (placing him on IR)." Kubiak said.

Also, an anonymous source who is close to the situation said on Tuesday that running back Travis Henry may have a chance of winning his appeal with the league over a recent failed drug test. "He's got a shot to win this. They [the National Football League] [messed] up," said the inside source.

RB Dan Herron (FA) is expected to take on a much larger role in the offense with the season-ending injury to Ahmad Bradshaw. "Now Boom (Daniel Herron) will have an opportunity. We've seen glimpses of Boom in the preseason and at other times. We know he's more than capable. I know Boom will prepare. He always prepares as a starter. I think he'll do fine, and he'll take advantage of this opportunity," Pagano said.

Shurmur would not say which running back will start in Week 12.

He'll see specialists this week to determine his next move. Holmes returned from a nearly two-year hiatus earlier this season, an absence that was also a result of a neck injury.

RB Steven Jackson (FA) Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said the team should have given Steven Jackson more work in the team's Week 11 game. "I think in retrospect, we probably got away - probably should've fed 'Jack' a little more," Fisher said Monday. "I talked to him today about it. But we got behind. When you get behind like we did, you want to close the gap and catch up. But he was running really well. You know, he looks young." The Rams will look to have a better balance of run and pass plays moving forward.

However, HC Wade Phillips revealed that "some other things came up during his injury rehab." While neither Phillips nor Owner Jerry Jones was forthcoming, it seems Felix Jones is plagued by something beyond the original hamstring issue. "There is more. What we are doing is evaluating that," Jerry Jones said Wednesday. "There are parts of it we are having to look at intently and see if he has his strength in some areas, and some direction. We are trying to see if he can play at full strength. It's not the hamstring. We are trying to see if the ‘more’ will allow him to play."

*** Wednesday Update *** RB LaMont Jordan (FA) did not practice on Wednesday.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB LaMont Jordan (FA) told team officials Monday he wanted out after being benched the past two games, a source familiar with the situation said on the condition of anonymity.

RB LaMont Jordan (FA) has fallen out of favor with HC Lane Kiffin and will watch RB Justin Fargas start the remainder of the season. Kiffin said Jordan lost his effectiveness after an injured back. Jordan is publicly taking it well, declining comment other than to say, "They have to sit somebody out. This week, I was the guy." Jordan, whose salary jumps from $1 million this season to $4.7 million next season, will likely hit the free agent market during the offseason.

*** Friday Update *** RB LaMont Jordan (FA) While no official word has been given from the Oakland Raiders, LaMont Jordan admitted that his season is over after suffering a torn MCL in his left knee in Week 11. "I have to get ready to return to the football team next year," Jordan said. RB Justin Fargas will take over as the starting running back in place of Jordan.

RB LaMont Jordan (FA) looks to be out for week 12 but the team hasn't said much beyond that. The initial fear was that Jordan could miss the rest of the year. That could still be the case. According to the Contra Costa Times, Jordan said he had been informed by team doctors that he won't need surgery to repair the torn medial collateral ligament in his left knee.

"I felt my knee pop before," Jordan said Monday. "Sometimes your bone can pop. But when I felt it, I knew it was just one of those things, 'Oh, boy.'"

Jordan said he contemplated a return to the game but got talked out of it by team trainers. "It's just a little frustrating," Jordan said soon after he set down his crutches. "It's two years in a row now that I've been injured. The last thing I'm trying to do is be labeled as a guy who can't go 16 games." He'll be evaluated further this week.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Willis McGahee (FA) will be placed on Injured Reserve, ending his season. This is not the season ending Injured Reserve. Instead, he'll be designated to return. If the Broncos make it to the AFC Championship Game then McGahee would be eligible to return.

RB Willis McGahee (FA) suffered a torn Medial Collateral Ligament in the team's Week 11 game, and is expected to miss six to eight weeks. This injury won't need surgery but McGahee could be lost for the rest of the regular season. John Fox was non-committal when asked who would be the starter in week 12 against the Chiefs. We think Ronnie Hillman will be the featured back with Lance Ball and Knowshon Moreno playing as backups.

*** Friday Update *** RB Willis McGahee (FA) practiced for the second day in a row and the team is considering starting him in Week 12. McGahee broke three ribs, Nov. 5, but HC Dick Jauron said McGahee has taken part in some contact drills while wearing extra padding to protect the injury. McGahee said he was encouraged after taking a few hits in practice. McGahee was able to full practice on Friday, his third straight day, in his return from broken ribs. Jauron is hopeful he'll be able to play Sunday. "He's been in every drill and taken part in all of them," said Jauron. "So I'm fairly optimistic. He's less sore on a daily basis. We'll just leave him as a game time decision." McGahee was scheduled for another MRI Friday afternoon. "My understanding is they'll take another picture of it to stay on top of it as we move forward," said Jauron. Backup RB Anthony Thomas was seen practicing with the punt return team, his former assignment when he was not starting for McGahee.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Willis McGahee (FA) returned to practice on Wednesday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. HC Dick Jauron was concerned about McGahee's physical status after missing two weeks with broken ribs. "It's going to affect him in terms of conditioning and he'll have to get used to the twisting and turning," Jauron said. McGahee had a similar take on his status for this weekend saying, "We're just trying to see if I can go out there and do certain things as far as moving around, so we can't make that decision right now." McGahee wants to see how he feels coming out of his first practice before assessing how close he is to returning. "We won't know until (Thursday)," he said shortly after practice. "I'm warm right now, but I'm feeling pretty good." If McGahee does dress and play on Sunday, Jauron says he'll be closely monitored. "If he's up he won't be the only running back on the roster on game day, so we can watch him closely," said Jauron. "We can limit his play time, we can divide carries. There are lots of ways we can go if he's healthy enough to play."

*** Thursday Update *** RB Knowshon Moreno (FA) QB Peyton Manning said he sees the injury to Willis McGahee as a great opportunity for Knowshon Moreno. Moreno will split duties with Ronnie Hillman and Lance Ball. "He hasn't played, but he will be a part of it. It's going to be a three-man committee," Manning said. "Hey, this is the NFL. You are kind of used to where it doesn't matter what year you are or how old you are. If you're on an NFL roster, you're expected to go in there and contribute and do your job."

RB Knowshon Moreno (FA) Lindsay H. Jones, of The Denver Post, reports Knowshon Moreno and Brandon Marshall got into an altercation on the sidelines in Week 11 after Moreno lost a fumble into the end zone. Marshall bumped facemasks twice with Moreno before Moreno pushed him away. Both players downplayed the altercation saying it was a heat of the moment thing out of frustration.

The Associated Press reports Marshall said he is not sorry for berating Moreno during the game. In fact, Marshall said more of his teammates should have shown some fire during the game.

RB Willie Parker (FA) said he wants the Steelers to get back to what he calls "Steeler football." Except for one final drive against the Chargers Week 11, he said that wasn't the case Sunday. "The defense knows we're about to run and they just can't stop it. That's Steeler football to me. It was really important. I think we came together for once in the game." Ben Roethlisberger threw 41 times to the team's 28 run attempts last week in an 11-10 victory. Under OC Bruce Arians, the Steelers have passed more often and limited the use of a fullback. The only time the Steelers had a winning record with that strategy was 2002.

*** Friday Update *** RB Clinton Portis (FA) Portis, who was placed on Injured Reserve earlier Wednesday, Nov. 24, had an MRI and head coach Mike Shanahan said the test showed no new damage, according to Ryan O'Halloran of CSNWashington.com. However, the decision to place Portis on IR was made after speaking with team consultant Dr. James Andrews. It's the third time Portis has had a season-ending injury.

Portis is unlikely to return to the team next season unless he is willing to restructure his contract, according to Matt Mosley, of ESPN.com. Head coach Mike Shanahan doesn't think Portis' career is over, however. "I don't think there's any question about it," Shanahan said. "He's got such a strong will. It all depends on does he come back a hundred percent? Does he want to come back and play? He's got that inner drive that most people don't have. He wants to compete. But obviously, he's got to get well."

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Clinton Portis (FA) Jason Reid, from the Washington Post, reports via Twitter that Clinton Portis was placed on season ending Injured Reserve. Portis will need to undergo surgery after an MRI revealed a tear in his abdomen area, reports The Washington Post. He will need to sit out a few months to recover.

RB Trent Richardson (FA) said he doesn't think he's having that bad of a season since being traded to the Colts, despite averaging only 2.8 yards per carry. "I'm not frustrated at all because I think I've been playing good," Richardson said. "If you turn on the film, I don't have any missed assignments. I haven't had any missed reads. I've been playing good. Stuff just hasn't matched up like we thought it would when I'm in there. I think teams match up differently when I come in." Head coach Chuck Pagano also somewhat agrees that opposing defenses have sold out against the run when Richardson is on the field. Donald Brown remains the complementary back to Richardson, and he's stated his case for a bigger role on offense with his performances the past few weeks.

"Maybe we found something with Gary Russell," HC Mike Tomlin said. "We will see. I think that based upon what he showed us in this football game, he is a strong candidate for that."

Williams will be available if HC Cam Cameron decides to activate him, something the coach wasn't yet ready to discuss.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Brandon Jacobs (NYG) has been named the starter per coach Tom Coughlin. Coughlin said Jacobs would share carries with Ahmad Bradshaw. Jacobs said he believes him starting is only temporary because Ahmad Bradshaw has the ability to make big plays with his explosiveness, reports the New York Daily News' Ralph Vacchiano. "Even if I go in and rush for 200 yards in each of these games, it's temporary. He is an explosive runner and I want to see him in there myself, other than anybody else. I want to see him in and see him do well. It's only going to be temporary. That's what I believe in my heart, that it is that way," Jacobs said.

This year it's just a nagging thing that's been there, but I don't think it will hold me out." Asked if the depth at running back will affect his decision on Jacobs, HC Tom Coughlin said, "We'll see.

"Reggie in horse racing wouldn't be called a mudder. He's an explosively quick guy. He's better on a fast track," Schwartz said. For his part, Bush disagreed with Schwartz and thinks that he is a running back that can perform well in all conditions. "I pride myself on being able to run in all conditions, you know what I mean, and I think the opposite," Bush said. "I think running in those types of conditions is, for me, I think is better because now the defenders have to be constantly on their heels and toes and we can get guys off-balanced in mud and when it's rainy and slippery, it's kind of an advantage to the running back." However, he agreed that he didn't play well in adverse conditions against the Steelers.

So much so that the team has used other returners for short punts and is currently considering using CB Daniel Manning more often in the return game. "I set a high standard for myself. I'm that guy that's going to take five, six returns to the house, and I haven't taken [any]," said Hester, who signed a four-year, $40 million contract extension at the start of training camp. The Bears have been looking at what worked the previous two seasons, when they returned 11 kickoffs and punts for touchdowns. "I don't know, we just had that swagger where we knew that each and every week we were going to have a big game returning, and we've just got to find that swagger and bring it back." Hester said.

*** Saturday Update *** WR Devin Hester (ATL) has only two receptions in the last three games, but that doesn't mean he's not continuing to make progress at his new position. "It's tough to jump from cornerback to receiver in one year and immediately play well," QB Rex Grossman said. "He has all the physical tools, runs good routes and catches the ball well. I think he needs more experience in the timing and the depth of the routes and getting out of his break and having more experience with our system. I would expect him next year to be challenging to be a full-time starting wide receiver."

Gordon was amped up and excited to take part in his first practice with the team this year Wednesday, Nov. 19, but Brian Hoyer cautioned that Gordon may need some time to acclimate to offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's new offense. "It's not so much the physical aspect as knowing the plays, the heat of the battle," said Hoyer. "We do a lot of no-huddle stuff. Obviously, we're working with him on that." Hoyer mentioned that last year's offense was more set on getting the ball downfield, and he said he's never been one to force the ball to one specific player.

*** Wednesday Update *** WR Josh Gordon (CLE) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Nov. 19. Gordon looked happy and was in great shape, and he caught passes from the quarterbacks in the portion that was open to the media. Head coach Mike Pettine indicated that Gordon will be limited throughout the week. "The trap to fall into is, 'Hey, he's back and let's just go ahead and throw him out there for a bunch of plays.' There's certainly danger inherent in doing that and we have to be smart with how we do it and have a plan to progress through the week," Pettine said. Pettine also cautioned that Gordon isn't back to full football shape, and it'll take him some time to learn a new offense.

However, Gordon has big plans in his return to game action in Week 12. He told NFL Media's Nate Burleson that he plans to tear up the league when he returns. "He told me: 'Starting on practice this Wednesday, I'm going to outwork everybody on the field,'" Burleson said Tuesday. "(He said) 'I'm going to try to evoke a pride in Cleveland that can hopefully lead us to the playoffs.' He's excited about coming back."

WR Josh Gordon (CLE) has been reinstated Monday, Nov. 17, after serving his 10-game suspension. Gordon will make his season debut against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12, and Falcons head coach Mike Smith doesn't expect the Browns to ease their best receiver back in. "Absolutely I do," Smith said. "They've stated that they want to get him out on the field as quickly as possible. And he's a game-changer. He's a guy that with the ball in his hands, he can make plays. So we're anticipating that we're going to get a full dose of him this week.' Gordon had a league-leading 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games in 2014. Smith said they aren't afraid to put Desmond Trufant, their best cornerback, in a shadow role on Gordon.

*** Saturday Update *** WR Denarius Moore (FA) QB Carson Palmer has targeted Denarius Moore 25 times in their last three games and completed only nine of those passes for 165 yards and one touchdown. In Week 11, Palmer was just 1-for-7 for nine yards throwing to his top wideout. Moore often will cut outside while Palmer is throwing inside; however, head coach Dennis Allen doesn't think their chemistry is getting worse.

WR Hakeem Nicks (NYG) is dealing with compartment syndrome in his lower right leg, swelling in the lower leg which compresses nerves and blood vessels, according to ESPNNewYork.com's Ohm Youngmisuk.

*** Thursday Update *** TE Rob Gronkowski (NE) partially participated in Thursday's practice.

*** Wednesday Update *** TE Rob Gronkowski (NE) is out for this weekend's game.

TE Rob Gronkowski (NE) has had surgery for his broken forearm, according to a league source. He will "probably" be out a few weeks, although an exact timetable for his return remains up in the air. Most medical experts feel this injury will keep Gronkowski out for four to six weeks. It's not a season ending injury and Gronkowski should be back in time for the Patriots playoff run.

TE Rob Gronkowski (NE) and Aaron Hernandez play two different positions within the team's offense. There is the traditional 'Y' position, who is 6-foot-5 or taller, at least 255 pounds, can run but absolutely must be a standout blocker. He has to be a viable receiver, but not a great one. There is also the 'F' or flex tight end, who is 6-foot-3 or taller, around 235 pounds, must be able to run and be an excellent pass receiver. He does not need to be a good blocker. If the team wants to stick with that system while Gronkowski is out, Michael Hoomanawanui and Daniel Fells could fill Gronkowski's 'Y' position, while Hernandez and Visanthe Shiancoe would serve as the flex tight ends.

TE Rob Gronkowski (NE) said he did not suffer a concussion on his second touchdown reception in Week 11. Gronkowski dove for the end zone and landed awkwardly on his head and neck. Gronkowski was clearly dazed after the touchdown. The training staff examined him on the sidelines and he continued to play in the game. "I remember the moment and everything," Gronkowski said. "If I didn't I still wouldn't even say I didn't. I'm trying to play this week."

*** Friday Update *** TE Antonio Gates (SD) did not practice on Friday and is questionable to play this weekend. Gates was in pain as he tried to practice in a limited role Thursday, Nov. 25, according to The Associated Press. "I did this kind of running last week and then I couldn't go for two day," Gates added. "I don't know what my response is going to be, but I feel like I'm making progress. But it's so painful, and I have to figure out if I can play through that."

Coach Norv Turner stressed that missing Friday's practice did not mean that Gates' condition has worsened. "It didn't get worse," said Turner. "He went through the walk-through. It doesn’t help him to go two days in a row, so we’ll see where he’s at Sunday."

*** Wednesday Update *** TE Antonio Gates (SD) did not practice on Wednesday.

*** Saturday Update *** TE Antonio Gates (SD) remains a game-time decision. Asked if he could play with his foot feeling the way it did Friday, Gates said, "It'd be tough. We're going to have to really sit down and we're going to have to talk. It'll definitely be a game-time decision." HC Marty Schottenheimer added: "He did OK. We'll see. The thing that does give me cause for some optimism is that he's no more uncomfortable today than he was yesterday. We'll wait and see. We've still got some time. We'll make a decision just before the game."

*** Friday Update *** TE Antonio Gates (SD) practiced a bit on Thursday - his first workout with the team since spraining his right foot last weekend. He worked again on Friday. Gates was upbeat about his chances of playing Sunday at Washington. "I'm going to constantly prepare to play this weekend and take care of the foot," said Gates after practice. "He did some work out here today," added HC Marty Schottenheimer, who again stated that Gates' availability will probably be decided at game time. "We are cautiously optimistic. He ran and he cut. It was positive." Gates practiced again on Friday. "It was basically the same as yesterday - it got a little bit better," Gates said. "I think it's still going to be a game-time decision for us."

*** Wednesday Update *** TE Antonio Gates (SD) did not practice on Wednesday but is improving. "It feels good, man,” Gates said. “It feels better than it felt yesterday. That's always a good sign. I really didn't try to do much with it. I think the key for me is not to try to do anything, put no pressure on it, stay off it and let it rest, let it heal." Gates added that he will definitely test his foot on Thursday or Friday. It looks like he’ll be a game-time decision.

TE Antonio Gates (SD) said he might be able to play this week. According to the team, an MRI confirmed the initial diagnosis of a sprain in Gates' right foot. He wore a protective boot yesterday, which he said he has not taken off since first affixing it Sunday afternoon.

*** Wednesday Update *** OL Kansas City Chiefs (KC) T Willie Roaf seems to be on track to play this weekend according to HC Dick Vermeil (remember of course that Vermeil also said Priest Holmes would be fine two weeks before he was placed on season-ending IR). “He said he’s much better,” said Vermeil. “He said he’s ready to go. Worked out yesterday morning and finished with great confidence. Now we have to see if he can apply it to football. The trouble with hamstrings is you go from a rehabilitation program of gradual acceleration to where you feel confident in going full speed. Now, you get into playing football and because of how explosive he is; it puts tremendous pressure on those hamstrings.”

Also, C Robbie Tobeck is in a Seattle-area hospital indefinitely with an abscess in his left hip. Tobeck reported to practice last Monday in preparation to start Monday night's game against Green Bay (4-6) with pain in his left hip. That left him questionable with what the team thought was a muscle pull or a tear. A midweek MRI exam revealed the abscess. Now, the 36-year-old veteran of two Super Bowls is spending his Thanksgiving weekend in the hospital under a regimen of antibiotics to fight the infection. "They've got to watch this thing. He is under heavy antibiotics, I think," Holmgren said. "He's sick." Chris Spencer, the team's first-round draft choice in 2005, will almost certainly make his third career start at center Monday; Tobeck was downgraded to doubtful on Friday.

T Orlando Pace did not practice on Wednesday.

The Rams signed T/G Anthony Davis to their active roster Tuesday. "With Orlando (Pace) being out a couple of weeks, we just needed some insurance," said Billy Devaney, the Rams' executive vice president for player personnel. Davis probably won't be up to speed in time to suit up for Sunday's game with Chicago, but the Rams plan to have rookie John Greco on the game-day roster to back up at tackle and guard. To make room for Davis on the roster, the Rams released running back Samkon Gado.

OL St. Louis Rams (STL) The Rams and Todd Steussie reached an injury settlement on Sept. 5 after Steussie fractured his left foot, Aug. 30. But at the rate the team has been losing offensive linemen, Steussie will be a sight for sore eyes this week when he rejoins the team in practice. Steussie will play either right guard or tackle and there's a good chance he'll start despite a three month layoff. "When you look at it, we've brought guys in off the street this season that have been active and have become starters in less than two weeks. So that's not unrealistic at all. We're real excited to get him back," OC Greg Olson said.

*** Friday Update *** OL St. Louis Rams (STL) The Carolina defense blitzed the Rams 18 times Sunday in just 49 plays. A week earlier, Seattle sent extra rushers 30 times in 64 plays. With the Rams down on manpower on the offensive line, they are expecting more of the same this week from San Francisco. After seeing QB Marc Bulger sacked 11 times over the past two games, the Rams are bracing for the worst. C Andy McCollum was lost for the season with a knee injury in the opener. OT Orlando Pace was lost for the season with a torn triceps on Nov. 12. Wednesday, OG Adam Timmerman did not practice because of bruised ribs. However, he returned to practice on Thursday and was upgraded to probable from questionable on the injury report. He practiced again on Friday and is expected to play this weekend.

OL St. Louis Rams (STL) LT Orlando Pace had surgery Friday to repair the torn triceps he suffered Oct. 15 at Seattle. The seven-time Pro Bowler probably won't be fully healed until near the start of training camp next summer. The operation "was relatively routine, as far as going in there and reattaching the tendon," Linehan said. "But it's going to be six months, at best, before he's active and playing again."

TM Chicago Bears (CHI) The Bears plan to rely heavier on the running game in the absence of QB Jay Cutler (thumb), according to head coach Lovie Smith.

Also, Kyle Orton, who was waived by the Denver Broncos Tuesday, Nov. 22, would like a chance to return to the Bears after QB Jay Cutler broke his thumb in Week 11. Orton and his agent, David Dunn, initiated talks for the Broncos to release him after they found out that Cutler may miss the rest of the season. The Bears and/or the Kansas City Chiefs will put in waiver claims on Orton. The Chiefs have first priority because they have an inferior record. The Bears could turn to free-agent QBs Josh McCown or J.T. O'Sullivan if they lose out on Orton. There are indications that Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz isn't very comfortable with Caleb Hanie for the rest of the season.

*** Wednesday Update *** TM Chicago Bears (CHI) WSCR-AM 670 reports someone in the Chicago Bears organization at a level above general manager Jerry Angelo has begun surveying options for changing the head coach or general manager, or both, according to WSCR-AM 670's Hub Arkush. Arkush said, "Inquiries have been made, feelers have been put out." Akrush specifically named former NFL head coaches Mike Shanahan, Bill Cowher and Jon Gruden during his radio appearance Tuesday, Nov. 24. When asked about the report, a team source said, "There's absolutely no truth" to the report.

Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports a source close to former NFL head coach and offensive coordinator Mike Martz said Martz could become the next offensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears. "Martz would love to work with Jay Cutler," said the source, who cited the close relationship between head coach Lovie Smith and Martz in sharing the information. Smith is expected to stay with the Bears in 2010 because of more than $10 million in walking-away money.

TM Chicago Bears (CHI) In Week 11, the Bears had Danieal Manning replace Devin Hester on several kickoff returns. Hester' drought without a return touchdown has reached 10 games. Manning returned three kickoffs in the fourth quarter, averaging 27.3 yards, 4.5 better than Hester on five returns. Special teams coordinator Dave Toub said he was looking for a spark, and Biggs thinks he might have found one from Manning, who led the league in kickoff returns in the preseason. "He did a nice job," Toub said. "He runs hard. You want that out of a kick returner, a guy that hits it up the field fast."

*** Friday Update *** TM Cincinnati Bengals (CIN) Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis, who is in the final year of his contract, is "very, very unlikely" to return next season, according to Jason La Canfora, of NFL Network.

*** Saturday Update *** TM Cincinnati Bengals (CIN) HC Marvin Lewis is looking toward the future and says the younger players on the team will play more as the season winds down. "I'm going to try to see as much as I can. We're going to try to get as many of the young guys involved as we can, to get their feet wet," Lewis said. "So their second year is not like they came off a redshirt, that they had a chance to get their feet wet and understand what it takes, the physicality of the AFC North Division and what it takes to play in it and win football games in it." With two years left on his deal, speculation about Lewis' status surfaced when he told NFL.com this week, "It's not a shock to say that we have to make some changes for the future for me to remain here." But on Friday it sounded like he was staying. "I wish it wasn't quite framed that way," Lewis said of the quote. "The big thing is, for everybody -- Cincinnati Bengals fans and the organization -- it's important that all of us put together a better football team. We're going to continue to work at it these last five games, try to win these last five football games and end the season with a better taste in our mouths than we have right now after losing the game last night. So that makes a big difference. That's what's important to me: if we win these last five games, starting with Baltimore coming here next Sunday in front of our fans, who were very loud and disruptive a week ago against the Eagles."
