    • 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

    • Pierre Thomas not at practice
      Pierre Thomas did not practice Wednesday due to a rib injury.

      Advice: When Thomas left the Week 16 loss to the Falcons early, it was announced as a foot injury. Now he's listed with a rib issue. Regardless, we should consider Thomas very questionable for Sunday's meaningless game at Tampa. His absence would upgrade the situation for Mark Ingram and give Khiry Robinson a shot at a few extra touches. Rotoworld.com

    • Steven Jackson (quad) expected to sit Sunday
      Steven Jackson (quad) is not expected to play in Sunday's Week 17 game against the Panthers.

      Advice: At age 31, Jackson wasn't going to recover from a pulled quad muscle in seven days. So the Falcons will roll into their showdown for the NFC South with a committee of Devonta Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers at running back. Practice squad callup Jerome Smith will be the No. 3 back. Note that following S-Jax's injury last week, Rodgers played 25 snaps compared to 18 for Freeman. Quizz will handle more of the third-down work and pass game duties, while the rookie handles more base work. We far prefer Freeman as the plug-n-play -- he's more versatile and a better inside runner. Rotoworld.com

    • Julio Jones (oblique) held out Wednesday
      Julio Jones (oblique) did not practice Wednesday.

      Advice: Jones didn't look fully healthy last week, but still managed seven catches for a team-high 107 yards. The Falcons are resting him leading up to Sunday's NFC South championship. Roddy White (ankle) was also held out. Rotoworld.com

    • Carlos Hyde still not practicing
      Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

      Advice: Hyde will likely miss his second straight game against the Cardinals. Alfonso Smith should continue to back up Frank Gore. Rotoworld.com

    • Marquess Wilson (knee) limited Wednesday
      Marquess Wilson (knee) was limited on Wednesday.

      Advice: Wilson missed just seven snaps last week due to his knee injury. It's not a concern for his Week 17 status. Wilson is averaging five catches for 41 yards and a touchdown over the last two games. Rotoworld.com

    • Dwayne Allen (knee) unlikely to play Week 17
      Dwayne Allen (knee) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

      Advice: Coach Chuck Pagano confirmed Allen is unlikely to play in Week 17. Allen should return for the Wild Card round. Rotoworld.com

    • Aaron Rodgers (calf) limited Wednesday
      Aaron Rodgers (calf) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

      Advice: Rodgers played through his calf injury last week, but his mobility was limited throughout the game. His status isn't in doubt for Sunday's NFC North championship. With the Packers playing for a first-round bye, Rodgers is safe to use in DFS leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Keenan Allen (collarbone) misses practice
      Keenan Allen (collarbone) did not practice Wednesday.

      Advice: Allen isn't expected to play in Week 17, but the Chargers are holding off on placing him on I.R. Malcom Foyd and Eddie Royal will continue to start, with Dontrelle Inman getting time in three-wide sets. Rotoworld.com

    • Ryan Mathews unable to practice Wednesday
      Ryan Mathews (ankle) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

      Advice: Mathews hasn't played the last two games and has yet to resume practicing. Coach Mike McCoy said there's a "possibility" he returns for Sunday's must-win game against the Chiefs, but he's trending in the wrong direction. The Chargers will go with a committee of Branden Oliver, Donald Brown and Ronnie Brown if Mathews sits out. Rotoworld.com

    • Kyle Rudolph (ankle/knee) not practicing
      Kyle Rudolph (ankle/knee) is not practicing Wednesday.

      Advice: It's not a good sign for his Week 17 status. Chase Ford will continue to start if Rudolph is held out. Rotoworld.com

    • A.J. Green (arm) not practicing Wednesday
      A.J. Green (arm) is not practicing Wednesday.

      Advice: No surprise. Green will likely miss most of the practice week, but the Bengals have expressed optimism regarding Green's ability to play Week 17 vs. Pittsburgh. Rotoworld.com

    • Dwayne Bowe not at practice
      Dwayne Bowe (shoulder) is not practicing Wednesday.

      Advice: Bowe sprained his shoulder during last week's loss at Pittsburgh. He'll likely try to gut it out this week with everything on the line against the Chargers. Rotoworld.com

    • Julian Edelman back at practice
      Julian Edelman (concussion) is practicing Wednesday.

      Advice: Edelman also practiced throughout last week, but could not clear the final part of the concussion protocol. Danny Amendola stepped up against the Jets with a 8-63-0 line on 11 targets. Edelman figures to be cleared for Week 17, although he's a risky play as the Patriots have already clinched the AFC's No. 1 seed. Rotoworld.com

    • Rashad Jennings back at practice
      Rashad Jennings (ankle) resumed practicing Wednesday.

      Advice: Jennings isn't going to just pack it in even though he's repeatedly aggravated his ankle sprain in meaningless games down the stretch. If he can play against Philly Sunday, he'll likely share the work with Andre Williams. Rotoworld.com

    • T.Y. Hilton practicing second straight day
      T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is practicing again Wednesday.

      Advice: After not practicing at all last week and then watching the Colts offense fall flat at Dallas, Hilton has now practiced two straight days. He's on track to start at Tennessee Sunday. The bigger question is how motivated the Colts will be, as they're essentially locked into the AFC's No. 4 seed. For what it's worth, coach Chuck Pagano has said all his starters will play as he wants to offense to get some confidence back before the Wild Card round. Hilton is shaping up as a strong fantasy play. Rotoworld.com

    • Percy Harvin not back at practice
      Percy Harvin (ribs) is not practicing Wednesday.

      Advice: Harvin has all but been ruled out of Sunday's finale at Miami. Geno Smith will ride with Eric Decker and Jeremy Kerley as his top-two wideouts. Rotoworld.com

    • Philip Rivers says he's feeling better
      Philip Rivers (back) practiced Tuesday.

      Advice: Rivers didn't practice on Tuesday or Wednesday last week, so he's ahead of pace. He said he'll be a full participant all week long. "I definitely feel better than last week," said Rivers, who fought through the injury to throw for 356 yards and four touchdowns in the Week 16 win at San Francisco. Rotoworld.com

    • GM Baalke says he wants Frank Gore back
      49ers GM Trent Baalke said he wants impending free agent Frank Gore back in 2015.

      Advice: Baalke is only going to want the career-long Niner to return under his terms. That likely means on a very cheap contract with an understanding that the team needs to feature Carlos Hyde more. Gore, who will turn 32 in May, takes a 230-962-4 line into Sunday's finale against the Cardinals. "Frank is going to want to discuss his role, and what that role is going to be moving forward," Baalke said. "What is the contract itself going to look like? We can both want each other's company, but to make that happen, there are hurdles that are going to have to be crossed." Rotoworld.com
