  Jets | Week 14 injury report for NYJ    Fri Dec 8, 06:17 PM

New York Jets LB Bruce Carter (groin) did not practice Friday, Dec. 8, and he has been ruled out for Week 14 against the Denver Broncos. RB Matt Forte (knee) did not practice, either, and he is listed as questionable, while LB Demario Davis (non-injury related) did not practice and is off the report. OG Brian Winters (abdomen, ankle) practiced on a limited basis and is listed as questionable. WR Robby Anderson (hamstring), S Terrence Brooks (non-injury related), CB Juston Burris (knee), OG James Carpenter (knee), DL Xavier Cooper (knee), WR Jermaine Kearse (shoulder) and RB Bilal Powell (hamstring) each practiced in full and have been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: Forte's status is uncertain for Week 14. If he can't go this week, Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire will split the work and both be low ceiling flex plays.

Footballguys view: Forte is probably just getting a rest day, but it is possible that his knee is acting up again. If he ends up out this week, Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire become better desperation RB2/Flex plays.

  49ers | San Francisco makes three moves    Tue Oct 24, 03:29 PM

Free-agent CB Leon Hall (49ers) was re-signed by the San Francisco 49ers Tuesday, Oct. 24. Additionally, TE Logan Paulsen and DT Xavier Cooper were released.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick of the Browns in the 2015 NFL draft, Cooper has not made any impact at the pro level. The 49ers picked him up in early September, and Cooper couldn't make it in two months as a rotational player on a defense that could use depth on the defensive line.

  Browns | Coaches intrigued with Xavier Cooper    Sat Jul 16, 12:05 PM

Cleveland Browns DE Xavier Cooper is an intriguing player for the coaching staff because of his speed. They believe he has a chance to make an impact as a pass rusher.

Footballguys view: We liked Cooper in last year's draft class. A third-round pick out of Washington State, Cooper has the quickness and burst to create pressure from the edge. He played 345 snaps in 14 games as a rookie in 2015 and had 1.5 sacks. We'll see if he can do more this year.

Cleveland Browns DLs Xavier Cooper and Carl Nassib are expected to compete for snaps when training camp opens, as the team has a huge hole with DE Desmond Bryant (pectoral) expected to miss the season. DE Armonty Bryant will also be in the mix once he serves his four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Footballguys view: Bowe is already looking like a big free agent bust for the Browns and Justin Gilbert a top 10 draft bust. Rob Housler is active over the rookie Bibbs at tight end.
