Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as probable for Week 16.

Footballguys view: The Roddy rule is satisfied for this week as White has practiced in full this week. He could lead the Falcons passing game with Julio Jones' status in doubt Sunday.

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as probable for Week 16.

  Texans | Andre Johnson probable     Fri Dec 19, 04:09 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is probable for Week 16.

Footballguys view: If Case Keenum starts, Johnson could have a revival, as the two combined for two multi-TD games last year. Baltimore's secondary is also an issue with more than one street free agent on the field.

  Panthers | Cam Newton expected to start    Fri Dec 19, 04:07 PM

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) has yet to officially be cleared to play in Week 16 against the Cleveland Browns, but head coach Ron Rivera is 'very comfortable and confident' that Newton will start. 'Right now, everything is pointing in the right direction,' Rivera said. 'The reason I haven't said anything (definitive) is because of that one big thing, waiting for doctors to tell me they feel good about it.' Newton hasn't shown any signs of pain in practice this week.

Footballguys view: Check back on Sunday morning, but if Newton looks like your best QB for the championship, it looks like you'll have him available on Sunday.

  Colts | Reggie Wayne should play    Fri Dec 19, 03:43 PM

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (rest) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 19, but is listed as probable for Week 16.

Footballguys view: Wayne just got some veteran rest. He needs it with his multiple injuries. TY Hilton is probably not going to play, so Wayne could be leaned on more by Andrew Luck, but he's still not a good play against he Cowboys.

  Falcons | Julio Jones a game-time decision?    Fri Dec 19, 02:37 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) missed another day of practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 16 against the New Orleans Saints. Jones will be a game-time decision, and he will test his hip Saturday, Dec. 20, before the team leaves town.

Footballguys view: Jones hasn't sounded close to playing this week, so even if he's active, that's no guarantee that he'll produce and play well. It's hard to leave a name of his caliber on the bench, but there are few signs that he'll be able to contribute much this week, if he plays at all.

  Colts | T.Y. Hilton questionable    Fri Dec 19, 02:28 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) missed practice all week but is questionable for Week 16 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Footballguys view: It would be a surprise if Hilton played in a game that can't offer much help to the Colts in playoff seeding unless the Broncos or Patriots drop a game to a last-place team. Even if Hilton does go, he is at risk of limited snaps and effectiveness.

  Eagles | Friday practice report for Week 16    Fri Dec 19, 02:21 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (collarbone) and LB Trent Cole (hand) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and have been ruled out for Week 16. LB Emmanuel Acho (groin), DT Beau Allen (shoulder), DE Brandon Bair (knee), DT Bennie Logan (pectoral), FS Chris Maragos (hamstring) and RB Chris Polk (ankle) fully participated in practice and are listed as probable.

Footballguys view: Cole being out gives Brandon Graham a full time role just in time for IDP league finals. He has been very productive in limited duty and Washington is a terrific matchup for pass rushers.

  Broncos | Julius Thomas back to full health?    Fri Dec 19, 02:16 PM

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas (ankle) looks closer to 100 percent at practice Friday, Dec. 19, than he has at any time since suffering his left ankle injury against the St. Louis Rams.

Footballguys view: Thomas isn't quite a top five option, but he's still one of the best of the rest now that he's healthy and Peyton Manning isn't sick.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning back to full practice    Fri Dec 19, 02:15 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as probable for Week 16.

Footballguys view: Matthews has been quiet the last two weeks, but you couldn't pick a better matchup for him than Washington in Week 16. He's a boom/bust WR3/Flex option.

  Browns | OC still has confidence in Johnny Manziel    Fri Dec 19, 01:52 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel remains an explosive playmaker, and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan isn't giving up on the young quarterback after a rough outing in his first career start last week. 'I feel the same about Johnny as I always have,' Shanahan said. 'Johnny is a playmaker. He's done that throughout his career. Nobody can argue with that at all. There were a couple times in that game he did make some plays. We weren't able to capitalize on it.' However, Shanahan acknowledged that success for Manziel won't come immediately. The Browns also know that Manziel's three starts to end the season won't be enough data to know for sure if he's their QB of the future.

Footballguys view: Lots of quarterbacks that ended up being good have looked bad in their first start, or even their whole first season. That being said, Manziel needs to make some plays and get some positive momentum going or this will cast a shadow on his offseason.

  49ers | Frank Gore knows the end is near    Fri Dec 19, 01:17 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore, who is set to be an unrestricted free agent after this season, knows that these next two games with the team are likely to be his last. "I've been here 10 years and it could be last two games here this year," Gore said. "It's weird knowing that I won't be under contract any more. But I've been in the league long enough to understand it's a business." Gore could post his eighth 1,000-yard season if he gains 196 yards in the final two games.

Footballguys view: Gore will try to go out with a bang. He has the backfield mostly to himself on Saturday with Carlos Hyde likely out. He's a boom/bust RB2 this week.

  49ers | Tony Jerod-Eddie to start Saturday    Fri Dec 19, 01:17 PM

San Francisco 49ers DT Tony Jerod-Eddie will start in Week 16 against the San Diego Chargers in place of DT Ray McDonald, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh.

  Panthers | DeAngelo Williams won't play    Fri Dec 19, 12:51 PM

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (hand) is questionable for Week 16 against the Cleveland Browns, but he will not play in the game, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Williams could be an emergency back this week.

Footballguys view: Jonathan Stewart owners get one last week of a feature back workload, and in a great matchup to boot. Consider him a strong RB2 against the Browns defense that Jeremy Hill ran all over last week.

  Panthers | Cam Newton probable against Browns    Fri Dec 19, 12:49 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) is listed as probable for Week 16 against the Cleveland Browns.

  Bills | C.J. Spiller probable for Week 16    Fri Dec 19, 12:47 PM

Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller (shoulder) has been added to the active roster and is probable for Week 16 against the Oakland Raiders.

Footballguys view: Spiller might not play a large role, so don't play him in any format, but it does take a little edge off of Fred Jackson's upside this week.
