Player Notes

  • Mark Ingram (shoulder) limited Wednesday
    Mark Ingram (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday’s practice.

    Advice: It’s the same injury Ingram played through in Week 10. He’s not in any danger of missing Sunday’s matchup with Houston. Ingram's a top-12 running back play. Today, 3:15 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Alfred Morris (ribs) practicing fully
    Alfred Morris (ribs) is practicing in full for Week 12.

    Advice: Morris was sidelined for most of last week's game, but that was mostly due to gameflow. Matt Jones struggled in his absence, rushing for no yards and losing a fumble. Morris is a low-end RB3 against the Giants. Today, 3:02 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Chris Polk (hamstring) practicing fully
    Chris Polk (hamstring) is practicing in full for Week 12.

    Advice: Polk was held out despite practicing on a limited basis last week. He'll return to a minor committee role, but isn't a fantasy option. Today, 2:20 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Eddie Lacy (ankle) probable for TNF
    Eddie Lacy (ankle) is listed as probable for Thursday night's Week 12 game against the Bears.

    Advice: Lacy is coming off his biggest workload of the season, but will remain in a timeshare with James Starks. He's a boom-or-bust RB2. Today, 1:28 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Jay Ajayi (elbow) added to injury report
    Jay Ajayi (elbow) is listed on the Week 12 injury report, but is practicing in full.

    Advice: It's not a concern for his Week 12 status. Ajayi is averaging 6.8 YPC (15 carries) over his first three games. Today, 1:09 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Forte, Alshon officially questionable for TNF
    Matt Forte (knee) is listed questionable for Thursday night's Week 12 game against the Packers.

    Advice: As is Alshon Jeffery (shoulder, groin), but both are fully expected to play. Forte is returning from a three-game absence, and is unlikely to step back into his 18-plus carries per game workload after Jeremy Langford impressed as the workhorse. Both Forte and Langford should have roles moving forward, though Forte is a high-end RB2 and borderline RB1 against Green Bay. Today, 11:58 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Ka'Deem Carey ruled out for Week 12
    Ka'Deem Carey (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Packers.

    Advice: With Matt Forte set to return from his knee injury, Carey wasn't slated for a big role anyway behind Forte and Jeremy Langford. He may go back to being a weekly inactive since he doesn't contribute on special teams. Today, 11:51 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Carlos Hyde (foot) still not practicing
    Carlos Hyde (foot) remains sidelined at practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Coach Jim Tomsula continues to say Hyde is "day-to-day," but we're not expecting him to play Sunday against the Cardinals. Shaun Draughn is the lead back. Today, 10:39 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Charcandrick West (hammy) not practicing Wed
    Charcandrick West (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Coach Andy Reid said there's a chance West will play Sunday against the Bills, but in the same breath said he has full confidence in Spencer Ware and Knile Davis. Signs point to West sitting out with his hamstring strain. Today, 10:07 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Ryan Mathews ruled out for Thursday at Lions
    Ryan Mathews (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Lions.

    Advice: Darren Sproles will back up DeMarco Murray on Thanksgiving. Mathews remains in the league's protocol. Consider him questionable for Week 13. Today, 10:03 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Bills cut RB Dan Herron
    Bills waived RB Dan Herron.

    Advice: Herron averaged 3.36 YPC on 11 carries for the Bills across four games earlier this season when both LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams were hurt. Herron had been inactive the past couple weeks. He's now 26. Today, 9:24 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Devonta Freeman still in Phase 1 of protocol
    Devonta Freeman (concussion) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: He remains in the first phase of the league's concussion protocol. It's not a good sign for Freeman's prospects of suiting up Week 12 against the Vikings, but we'll have to keep an eye on his progress the rest of the week and into the weekend. If he can't go, Tevin Coleman will get the start in the backfield. Today, 9:13 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Frank Gore (knee, quad) misses practice Wed
    Frank Gore (knee, quad) isn't practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Gore missed time on Sunday after an early knee/quad issue and was spotted with a noticeable limp late in the game on the sideline. The Colts are likely just giving the 32-year-old the practice off and will probably limit his reps the remainder of the week. Gore should be fine for Week 12 against the Bucs. Today, 8:41 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Ravens could use Mostert more at running back
    Coach John Harbaugh said RB Raheem Mostert could see more reps on offense moving forward.

    Advice: Mostert tore up the preseason with the Eagles, totaling 361 yards on 53 touches. He didn't make the final roster and spent time with the Dolphins earlier this season before being claimed off waivers by Baltimore last month. Mostert (5'10/195) is small, but has off-the-chart measurables and athleticism. Today, 8:13 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Joseph Randle arrested for assault in Kansas
    Suspended free agent RB Joseph Randle was arrested at a Kansas casino Tuesday night.

    Advice: He's facing several charges, including felony criminal threats, misdemeanor assault of a law enforcement officer, battery, and disorderly conduct. Randle was reportedly told to leave the casino because he was too drunk. On the way out, he spit on the floor and "went berserk" on the cops. Randle has a history of legal troubles and is still in custody on $25,000 bail. Today, 7:10 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Marshawn Lynch having sports-hernia surgery
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Marshawn Lynch is undergoing sports-hernia surgery Wednesday morning.

    Advice: Lynch is expected to miss "about a month," as FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reported Tuesday. That's on the optimistic side. According to Dr. David Chao, former Chargers team physician, six weeks is "average" return. Arian Foster, who's of similar age to Lynch, missed eight weeks after sports-hernia surgery this summer. Lynch can probably be cut from re-draft teams now. Thomas Rawls sits atop the depth chart for the foreseeable future. Lynch might be back for the playoffs. Today, 6:19 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Kendall Hunter works out for the Jets Tuesday
    Free agent RB Kendall Hunter worked out for the Jets on Tuesday.

    Advice: He was one of four free agents to work out along with Rob Housler, Tim Jamison and Ryan Mueller. The Jets are already well-stocked at running back so they might just be updating their emergency list. Hunter has also tried out for the Patriots, Seahawks and Jaguars since the Niners released him in September. Yesterday, 2:47 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Gruden confident Matt Jones can fix fumbles
    Redskins coach Jay Gruden is confident Matt Jones can fix his fumbling issues.

    Advice: "If you don’t protect the ball then you won’t be a running back in the NFL for very long," Gruden said. "We have total faith in him that he’s going to fix this, but he has to himself make sure he understands the importance of the ball." Jones has fumbled four times this season on just 104 touches including a costly cough up last week against the Panthers. Jones likely would have been benched following the latest fumble, but Alfred Morris was out of the game with a rib-cage injury. As it was, Jones lost most of his snaps to third-down back Chris Thompson. Jones will find himself sitting on the bench if he cannot hold onto the ball. Yesterday, 7:02 am
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • Karlos Williams rushes for 11 yards in defeat
    Karlos Williams rushed six times for 11 yards in the Bills' Week 11 loss to the Patriots on Monday night.

    Advice: Williams made more of an impact as a lead blocker in this one, helping pave the way on LeSean McCoy's 27-yard touchdown run on a sweep to the right. With McCoy firing on all cylinders, Williams is merely a change-of-pace and breather back. His touchdown streak ends at six games. Williams is more an RB3. Monday, 9:34 pm
    Week 12 Projected Rank
  • LeGarrette Blount rushes for 56 yards in win
    LeGarrette Blount rushed 16 times for 56 yards in the Patriots' Week 11 win over the Bills on Monday night.

    Advice: He also caught 1-of-2 targets for five yards. Blount was stuffed early and often and headed into halftime with five yards on five carries. He came out in the third quarter and broke off a strong 17-yard run off the edge, but overall, the Bills did a pretty good job containing him. As a whole, the Buffalo defense played really well Monday night. Unfortunately for them, the offense stunk up the joint. Blount will again be an RB1 with big scoring upside Week 12 at the Broncos. Monday, 9:31 pm
