    • Patriots add Josh Boyce from practice squad
      Patriots promoted WR Josh Boyce from the practice squad.

      Advice: It's a sign that Julian Edelman (concussion) and Brandon LaFell (shoulder) could be held out or have limited roles. The Patriots placed CB Alfonzo Dennard on I.R. in a corresponding move. Rotoworld.com

    • Saints promote QB Ryan Griffin
      Saints promoted QB Ryan Griffin from the practice squad.

      Advice: Griffin has been on the practice squad all year after failing to beat out Luke McCown for backup duties. He'll serve as the No. 3 quarterback for Sunday's finale. Rotoworld.com

    • Report: Gordon unlikely to return with Browns
      ESPN Cleveland doesn't expect Josh Gordon to remain with the Browns in 2015.

      Advice: The Browns suspended Gordon after he failed to show up for Saturday's walk-through. The move means he'll finish with just five games active this season, which could prevent him from being eligible for unrestricted free agency when his contract runs out in 2015. According to ESPN's Tony Grossi, "it appears doubtful" that Gordon will be back with the team. The Browns nearly traded Gordon prior to the 2013 deadline and could shop him again this offseason.

    • Andrew Hawkins questionable for Week 17
      Andrew Hawkins (thumb) is listed as questionable for Week 17.

      Advice: Hawkins missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, but was able to get in a limited session on Friday. With Josh Gordon suspended, the Browns could be forced to start Taylor Gabriel and Travis Benjamin if Hawkins is held out. Rotoworld.com

    • Report: Julian Edelman could be inactive
      Patriots.com believes "anyone dealing with any sort of injury could very very well be inactive" Week 17 against the Bills.

      Advice: Bill Belichick said earlier in the week the Patriots "will do what we feel is best for our football team, period." That could include resting players dealing with nagging injuries like Julian Edelman (concussion) and LaGarrette Blount (shoulder). Both are listed a questionable for this week, and it would not be surprising if both are inactive. Rotoworld.com

      Jets signed WR Quincy Enunwa off their practice squad.

      Advice: Enunwa will take the roster spot of S Rontez Miles, who was placed on injured reserve with a leg injury. Waived at final cuts, Enunwa has spent his rookie season on the Jets' practice squad. Rotoworld.com

    • Bucs and TE Brandon Myers restructure deal
      Bucs restructured the contract of TE Brandon Myers.

      Advice: The details are not yet available, but the restructuring will lower Myers $2.25 million base salary in 2015 while adding another year to the contract. This deal will likely keep Myers in Tampa Bay for at least one more season. Rotoworld.com

    • Cowboys' starters saw full reps in practice
      ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Cowboys' starters practiced this week as if they were playing in a "regular role."

      Advice: Needing basically a miracle to earn a first-round bye, the Cowboys have little reason to play their starters against Washington. That appears to matter little to coach Jason Garrett, who has been consistent the starters will play a normal role Week 17. A full game may be Dallas' intent, but it would not be surprising if Tony Romo, DeMarco Murray and Dez Bryant are pulled at some point in the game. All three are risky targets in daily formats.

    • Browns officially promote QB Connor Shaw
      Browns signed QB Connor Shaw off their practice squad.

      Advice: Shaw has taken all the first-team reps in practice this week and will start the Browns' Week 17 matchup with the Ravens. Cleveland also promoted DL Jamie Meder from the practice squad. LB Eric Martin and TE Ryan Taylor were waived in corresponding moves. Rotoworld.com

    • Free agent WR Pettis works out for Chargers
      Free agent WR Austin Pettis worked out for the Chargers on Wednesday.

      Advice: Pettis has also worked out for the Seahawks and Panthers since being released by the Rams in October. With Keenan Allen sidelined for likely the rest of the season, the Chargers may give Pettis a look if they qualify for the postseason. Pettis had 107 catches and nine touchdowns across four seasons with the Rams. Rotoworld.com

    • DeAngelo Williams may not return to Carolina
      ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton believes the Panthers will move on from RB DeAngelo Williams following the season.

      Advice: After years of struggling under the dead-money weight of Williams' contract, the Panthers will finally be in a position to cut loose the aging running back this offseason. Williams is only due $1.85 million in base salary in 2015, but carries a cap hit of $6.33 million for next season. The cap-strapped Panthers could save around $2 million on the 2015 cap by designating Williams a post-June 1 cut. With his play on the field slipping, it is an easy move for Carolina to make.

    • Williams probable, but Stewart will start
      DeAngelo Williams (hand) is listed as probable for Week 17 against the Falcons, but Jonathan Stewart is still expected to start.

      Advice: Coach Ron Rivera was unwilling to discuss the specifics of the running back rotation, but it is safe to assume the red-hot Stewart will retain most of the work even if Williams plays. Stewart has rushed for a league-high 437 yards over the past four games and has helped spark the Panthers to three straight wins. He is a solid RB2 against the Falcons. Rotoworld.com

    • Tom Brady expected to play only one half
      The Boston Globe's Ben Volin expects Tom Brady to only play a half Week 17 against the Bills.

      Advice: This report echoes an earlier report from ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss, who said the Patriots could treat the meaningless game as a fourth preseason contest. Regardless of the exact snap count, it is becoming clear Brady and the Patriots' starters will not play a full game against the Bills. Already in a tough matchup, Brady needs to be avoided in both seasonal and daily formats. Rotoworld.com

    • Gronkowski to see 'little-to-no playing time'
      The Boston Globe's Ben Volin believes Rob Gronkowski will receive "little-to-no playing time" in the Patriots' season finale against the Bills.

      Advice: With nothing on the line Week 17, it makes little sense for the Patriots to play their dynamic but oft-injured tight end. Gronkowski could very well put up a goose egg Week 17, making him unplayable in both seasonal and daily formats. Tim Wright will likely see a bump in snaps with Gronk limited, but would be a poor option against the Bills' suffocating pass defense. Rotoworld.com

    • Crabtree (knee) officially listed as probable
      Michael Crabtree (knee) is listed as probable for Week 17.

      Advice: Crabtree was limited to 15 snaps last week due to his knee issue. He's played through multiple injuries this season, leading to a disappointing 64/657/4 line. An impending free agent, Crabtree faces an uncertain future with the 49ers. Rotoworld.com

    • Percy Harvin practices, questionable
      Percy Harvin (ribs) returned to a limited practice on Friday and is listed as questionable for Week 17.

      Advice: Harvin is often nicked up, but he's also a fast healer. Early-week indications were that Harvin would definitely not play in Sunday's finale against the Dolphins, but he may now be available. He's likely a game-time decision. Rotoworld.com

    • Alex Smith out 6 weeks with lacerated spleen
      Alex Smith has been ruled out for Week 17 against the Chargers with a lacerated spleen.

      Advice: Smith was hurt in Week 16, but played through it and practiced earlier this week. He went to the training staff and said he didn't feel right. The injury was revealed, and Chase Daniel is now in the saddle as the starting quarterback in an extremely important finale against San Diego. In order to make the playoffs, the Chiefs need to win and have the Texans and Ravens lose. Much like Smith, Daniel is a game manager with a weak arm and plus athleticism. Smith needs six weeks to recover and likely wouldn't be available until the Super Bowl. Rotoworld.com
