    • Jermaine Kearse doesn't practice Wednesday
      Jermaine Kearse (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

      Advice: Kearse is expected to miss at least one week with a Grade-1 hamstring strain and isn't a lock to be ready for Seattle's first playoff game. Paul Richardson will start opposite Doug Baldwin in his absence. Rotoworld.com

    • Ronnie Hillman practices in full
      Ronnie Hillman (foot) practiced in full Wednesday for the first time since his Week 10 injury.

      Advice: Hillman practiced on a limited basis last week, but was ruled inactive on Monday night against the Bengals. The Broncos often make their injured players practice for two weeks before activating them. So we'd consider Hillman on track to play against the Raiders in Week 17, serving as one of C.J. Anderson's backups. It's hard to see Hillman stealing anything more than 3-5 touches from Anderson, who has played at an extremely high level in his six starts. Rotoworld.com

But he's certainly earned a new deal, emerging as a stud in terms of both pass rushing (15.5 sacks in his last 28 games) and run defense. Wilkerson was PFF's No. 15 3-4 DE last season and No. 3 this season -- only behind J.J. Watt and teammate Sheldon Richardson. The Jets would do well to lock up Wilkerson prior to the 2015 season.

    • Keenan Allen not practicing Wednesday
      Keenan Allen (ankle, collarbone) is not practicing Wednesday.

      Advice: As expected. Battling a bum ankle and a broken collarbone, we're not expecting Allen to play Saturday night against the 49ers. He's likely done for the season. Rotoworld.com

      Rashad Jennings (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

      Advice: Jennings played one offensive snap last week against the Redskins and aggravated his previous ankle injury on the play. If Jennings can't play -- and it seems unlikely that he will -- Andre Williams will handle a big bulk of the carries against the Rams. Williams would come into play as a back-end RB2. Rotoworld.com

    • Carlos Hyde misses practice Tuesday
      Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) did not practice Tuesday.

      Advice: Hyde hurt both his ankle and back on a third-quarter play against the Seahawks. With Frank Gore (concussion) also sidelined, Alfonso Smith and FB Bruce Miller are the only other ball-carriers on the roster. We'd consider Hyde more likely than Gore to play Saturday night against the Chargers. Rotoworld.com

    • Keenan Allen taking things 'week by week'
      Keenan Allen says he's taking things "week by week" with his broken right collarbone.

      Advice: According to the Union-Tribune San Diego, Allen is "not considered a candidate for injured reserve." He has yet to undergo surgery, and "no such procedure is currently planned." It's interesting Allen and the Chargers are apparently so optimistic about an injury that typically sidelines players for the better part of two months, but we strongly suspect he's played his final snap of the 2014-15 campaign. Allen should be formally ruled out for Saturday's game against the 49ers some time in the next 48 hours. With Allen out, Seyi Ajirotutu will serve as the Bolts' No. 3 receiver behind Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal. Rotoworld.com

    • Keenan Allen diagnosed with broken collarbone
      Keenan Allen has been diagnosed with a broken collarbone in addition to his ankle injury, and is likely done for the regular season.

      Advice: Strangely, the Chargers have yet to formally rule Allen for Week 16, but barring a Bolts Super Bowl run, he's almost certainly played his final snap of the 2014-15 season. It appears the only reason for hope is that Allen briefly played through the injury in Week 15. It's a massive blow for the Chargers' scuffling offense, as Allen had really come on of late, catching 49 passes over his past eight games. He'll close the book on his second regular season the owner of a 77/783/4 line. Not a bad year, but a major downgrade from Allen's rookie campaign. He averaged just 10.2 yards per catch after posting a 14.7 mark in 2013. Nevertheless, Allen is only 22, and an elite route runner. He remains a strong hold as a WR2 in dynasty leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Carlos Hyde undergoing MRI on ankle
      Carlos Hyde is undergoing an MRI on his injured ankle.

      Advice: He also injured his back in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. "I just went down awkwardly," Hyde said. "I was trying to torque my body. ... I was trying to dip my shoulder but he caught on to me and pulled back." Frank Gore is currently nursing a concussion. Both players are uncertain for Week 15. Rotoworld.com

    • Tom Coughlin doesn't update Jennings' status
      Giants coach Tom Coughlin didn't update Rashad Jennings' (ankle) status at Monday's presser.

      Advice: What Coughlin did have to say wasn't exactly encouraging. "Whether or not we're all the way back to Square 1, I don't know that." At best, Jennings will be limited for Week 16. At worst, he's played his final down of the season. Fantasy owners can't be counting on Jennings suiting up against the Rams, while Andre Williams is a must add on the off chance he's still available. Rotoworld.com

    • Keenan Allen in walking boot, will have MRI
      Keenan Allen (ankle) left the stadium in a walking boot Sunday evening and will undergo an MRI on Monday.

      Advice: Allen was forced from the Week 15 game against the Broncos in the third quarter. He tried to return a couple times before he was eventually whisked away to the locker room on a cart. The Chargers offered no updates after the loss. We'll provide an update when results of the MRI are revealed this afternoon. Rotoworld.com

    • Jermaine Gresham to visit toe specialist Tue.
      Jermaine Gresham will visit a toe specialist Tuesday after being inactive for Week 15 against the Browns.

      Advice: Gresham reportedly "looked great running around" in pregame warmups but was ultimately inactive Sunday. It ruffled some feathers, causing Gresham to confront a sideline reporter following the game after that reporter said Gresham "quit" during a pregame segment. Gresham hurt the toe in practice last week. Kevin Brock started at tight end. Gresham is a free agent in March. Rotoworld.com

    • Carlos Hyde says back, not ankle, is hurt
      Carlos Hyde said he injured his back, not his ankle, in Sunday's loss at Seattle.

      Advice: Hyde went down awkwardly in the third quarter and didn't return. Although it was announced as a right ankle issue, the rookie back said his back is the one he was going for X-rays on. With Frank Gore in the concussion protocol, it's a situation worth monitoring. Rotoworld.com

    • Rashad Jennings aggravated ankle on Sunday
      Rashad Jennings aggravated his lingering ankle injury during Sunday's win over the Giants.

      Advice: Jennings re-sprained the joint on his very first carry of the game. Andre Williams finished it out, rushing 18 times for 44 yards and catching one ball for nine yards. With just two games left in this lost season for the Giants, we wouldn't be surprised if Jennings shuts it down. Williams would be a weak plug-n-play at St. Louis in Week 16. Rotoworld.com

    • Jermaine Kearse has 78-yard day vs. 49ers
      Jermaine Kearse caught 5-of-6 targets for 78 yards in the Seahawks' Week 15 win over the 49ers.

      Advice: The 78 yards were Kearse's most of the season. He might have gone over 100, but couldn't corral what would have been a long gain on his sixth target. Kearse's big-play upside is well established, but he doesn't get nearly enough looks to be on the WR3/4 radar in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Carlos Hyde was forced from San Francisco's Week 15 game against the Seahawks with a right-ankle injury, and will not return.

      Advice: Hyde got rolled up in ugly fashion in the fourth quarter, but was able to hobble off the field under his own power. He appeared to have a chance to return, but was ruled out with a little over five minutes remaining. Hyde was running well before going down, taking the rock six times for 55 yards. Five of Hyde's six carries went for at least five yards. With Frank Gore (concussion) also sidelined, FB Bruce Miller and Alfonso Smith are the next men up on the depth chart. Rotoworld.com

      Dwayne Bowe caught 3-of-7 targets for 69 yards Week 15 against the Raiders.

      Advice: Bowe's 37-yard catch in the second quarter was his longest reception of the year, and he was ruled out of bounds on another long catch. Bowe had more than 45 yards in a game for the first time since Week 10, and it was only the fourth time all season he surpassed 60 yards receiving. Even with the "breakout," Bowe should not be owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Mort: Drew Stanton (knee) likely out 4 weeks
      Appearing on Sunday NFL Countdown, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Drew Stanton (knee) is likely to miss four weeks.

      Advice: Stanton has sprained ACL and MCLs, which means they're partially torn. The four-week timetable would put Stanton back for the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Arizona desperately needs to win the NFC West and clinch a first-round bye, though we don't believe the talent gap between Stanton and Ryan Lindley is as great as some are making it out to be. Both players are very mediocre. Rotoworld.com
