Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Dec. 5.

  Bills | Robert Woods making progress    Mon Dec 5, 06:12 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Robert Woods (knee) is doing well but his status for Week 14 will be determined by how he feels during the week, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Footballguys view: Woods sprained his knee in Week 11 against the Bengals, and he's been trying to get healthy ever since. Fantasy owners shouldn't be looking to the Bills WR corps for any help outside of Sammy Watkins.

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (illness) will have his snaps limited to about 20 per game until the Cardinals can maintain Brown's sickle cell trait.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners should have already moved on. The Cardinals haven't yet figured out how to manage this problem, and Brown's production has suffered because of it.

  Raiders | Aldon Smith to meet with commissioner?     Mon Dec 5, 04:53 PM

Oakland Raiders LB Aldon Smith is scheduling a meeting with commissioner Roger Goodell in an effort to make a case for his reinstatement.

Footballguys view: Smith is eligible to be reinstated by the league, and his return to the Raiders would be a tremendous boost for that defense with the playoffs approaching. Smith is trying to come back from an indefinite ban for multiple arrests/violations of the league's substance-abuse policy.

  Broncos | Denver claims Justin Forsett    Mon Dec 5, 04:13 PM

Free-agent RB Justin Forsett (Lions) was claimed by the Denver Broncos Monday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: Forsett has had an odd year to say the least. He was cut by the Ravens after camp, but the team brought him back. They later cut Forsett and the Lions picked him up. The Lions just cut him last week, so the Broncos have now picked him up. Forsett had a career-best 1,266 yards rushing under Gary Kubiak when the Broncos head coach was the OC of the Ravens in 2014. Watch to see if Forsett can outperform a disappointed Devontae Booker in the Broncos backfield.

Atlanta Falcons OT Jake Matthews (knee) suffered a sprained knee in Week 13, but he could still practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Footballguys view: The team is hopeful he can practice on Thursday, but it's Friday's practice which will determine his status. If Matthews can't play in Week 14, then Tom Compton will fill in.

  Falcons | Mohamed Sanu has groin injury    Mon Dec 5, 03:27 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) suffered a groin injury in Week 13, but he could still practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Footballguys view: He was injured late in the game against the Chiefs. The Falcons will be cautious with Sanu as he deals with this injury...especially with Julio Jones battling a turf toe.

  Falcons | Julio Jones has turf toe    Mon Dec 5, 03:21 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) is dealing with turf toe, according to head coach Dan Quinn. The injury is not believed to be long-term.

Footballguys view: Turf toe is an extremely painful injury to deal with...or try to play through. We should see Jones limited in practice all this week. At this time, Quinn expects Jones to play in Week 14 but it's too soon to know for sure.

  NFL | Leonard Fournette given high praise    Mon Dec 5, 03:07 PM

LSU RB Leonard Fournette has officially declared for the NFL Draft Monday, Dec. 5. Two anonymous high-level evaluators told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that Fournette is better than Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley. Fournette is considered by many pundits to be a top-five draft pick next year.

Footballguys view: Fournette is one of our favorite RBs in college. He's a big, swift and physical running back who gets stronger as the game goes on. Fournette's size, speed, and power combination reminds some in the scouting community of Vikings RB Adrian Peterson.

  Dolphins | Surgery for Kiko Alonso    Mon Dec 5, 02:50 PM

Miami Dolphins LB Kiko Alonso (thumb) underwent surgery to repair his broken right thumb Monday, Dec. 5. Alonso could still play in Week 14, though, according to head coach Adam Gase.

Footballguys view: Mike Hull is next man up if Alonso misses time. We'll know more about his status during the week of practice, but expect Alonso to be limited this week.

  Chiefs | Jeremy Maclin uncertain for Thursday    Mon Dec 5, 02:00 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) continues to make improvement from his groin injury, but head coach Andy Reid suggested he didn't know if Maclin would be able to play Thursday, Dec. 8, in a Week 14 game against the Oakland Raiders.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs would get a boost to the offense with Maclin back in the lineup. At this time, Maclin is trending in the right direction. We'll know more about his availability on Wednesday. This is a huge, must-see game on Thursday in the league's toughest division.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Cecil Shorts (knee) tore his right ACL, MCL, PCL and dislocated his right knee in a Week 13 win over the San Diego Chargers.

Footballguys view: This injury could end his career. Shorts has been productive at times during his pro career, but he could not shake the injury bug. During six years in the NFL, Shorts has 229 catches, 2,979 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns.

  Panthers | Too much too soon for Kelvin Benjamin?    Mon Dec 5, 01:22 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin has scored only once since Week 4 and failed to catch more than three passes in any of his last three games. When asked about the team's top receiver Monday, Dec. 5, head coach Ron Rivera said, 'Maybe we did get him out there too soon, too much (after last year's torn ACL).'

Footballguys view: The season hasn't gone the way the Panthers wanted, but it will be nice to see Benjamin jump-started late in the year if at all possible. The Panthers are evaluating for next season, and Benjamin can be a big part of the offense if at full strength.

  Eagles | Ryan Mathews expected back soon    Mon Dec 5, 01:08 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (knee) should return to practice Wednesday, Dec. 7, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Footballguys view: The Eagles aren't running the ball well without Mathews on the field. We'll see if he can practice this week and work as the team's lead back against Washington.

  Eagles | DGB diagnosed with oblique contusion    Mon Dec 5, 01:00 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Dorial Green-Beckham (oblique) suffered an oblique contusion in a Week 13 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. He is not expected to practice Wednesday, Dec. 7, but should be back in time to play versus the Washington Redskins in Week 14.

Footballguys view: Without Jordan Matthews, there was an opportunity for Green-Beckham to do more. The injury held back his numbers against the Bengals, but it sounds like he'll be able to play against Washington.

  Eagles | Jordan Matthews expected back soon    Mon Dec 5, 12:52 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (ankle) should return to practice Wednesday, Dec. 7, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Footballguys view: Matthews missed the game against the Bengals in Week 13 because of this ankle problem. The week of rest should help him as the team prepares to take on Washington in Week 14. We'll see if Matthews can at least be limited on Wednesday.

  Saints | Josh Hill done for the season    Mon Dec 5, 12:38 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill (leg) was diagnosed with a broken fibula following a Week 13 loss to the Detroit Lions and will miss the remainder the season.

Footballguys view: Hill was on his way to career-best numbers this year as his role continued to grow for the Saints. He finishes this year with 15 catches for 149 yards and one touchdown. The Saints will continue with Coby Fleener as their lead tight end, but now without Hill taking away any snaps.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian feeling better    Mon Dec 5, 12:24 PM

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (foot) is 'ahead of last week' in regards to his sprained left foot and will be reevaluated Monday, Dec. 5, but there is hope he'll be able to return in Week 14 against the Tennessee Titans.

Footballguys view: Siemian was out against the Jaguars due to this foot injury. The team will monitor him during the week of practice, but barring any setbacks we should see him against the Titans on Sunday.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins did get LT Branden Albert and LG Laremy Tunsil back against the Ravens on Sunday, but it sounds like Pouncey may not be able to return.

  Browns | 'All signs point' to RG3 starting    Mon Dec 5, 12:02 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) is likely to get at least one more chance to prove he can be the team's quarterback of the future and 'all signs point' to it happening over the final month of the season, according to ESPN's Pat McManamon.

Footballguys view: Never say never, and Griffin looks to be on track to play again for the Browns. This could be a four-game audition for Griffin as the Browns are just looking to the future. If he impresses, there's a chance he could stick around in 2017. He has a cap hit of $9.25 million next year with only $1.75 million in dead money.

  Giants | Victor Cruz sees sporadic play    Mon Dec 5, 11:20 AM

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz played 26 snaps (43 percent of the offense) Sunday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: Cruz didn't get a single target against the Steelers on Sunday. He's not a fantasy factor, and even in deep leagues we'd advise against rostering him.

  Patriots | Danny Amendola to miss time    Mon Dec 5, 11:19 AM

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (ankle) suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 13, and the team's plan is to have him ready for the playoffs.

Footballguys view: That means Amendola could be shut down for the rest of the regular season. A high-ankle sprain can linger if not given enough time to heal. With Chris Hogan back in action, the Pats offense won't miss a beat without Amendola.

  Bears | Marquess Wilson injured    Mon Dec 5, 09:14 AM

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson (groin) left the game Sunday, Dec. 5, in the first quarter with a strained groin.
