  Chargers | Philip Rivers has legit back injury    Thu Dec 18, 09:17 AM

Updating previous reports, San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back) is battling a back injury that is more severe than the team has acknowledged, according to a league source. Rivers' back injury was quietly added to San Diego's injury report last week, to go along with the rib injury he has been battling for weeks. By now, Rivers' rib injuries are improved, making his back injury the significant issue, a league source said.

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy opened practice on the sidelines Wednesday, Dec. 17, while RB Chris Polk opened with first-team reps. After practice McCoy did not seem too concerned. 'We rotate all the time,' McCoy said. '(Running backs coach Duce Staley) pulled me out. (RB Darren Sproles) wasn't in either.'

  Cardinals | Drew Stanton has no timetable    Wed Dec 17, 07:17 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) said this injury is different from any other he's ever had, and he said it's too soon to know if he could return to play in Week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks. He hasn't had any setbacks and started jogging with a brace on his right knee this week. Stanton watched practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, and has thrown a ball recently. 'It's felt good,' Stanton said. 'It's one of those things you just go to kinda take time and the healing process is different for everybody.'

Footballguys view: The Cardinals are going to play it by ear so to speak. In the meantime, get ready for the Ryan Lindley era! The Cardinals will also have a package of plays in place for athletic rookie Logan Thomas as well.

  Bills | C.J. Spiller not yet on roster    Wed Dec 17, 07:00 PM

Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller (collarbone) has not yet been added to the active roster from the short-term Reserve/Injured list. The Bills must add him by Dec. 24, but they must make that move by Saturday, Dec. 20, if they want him to be eligible to play in Week 16 against the Oakland Raiders.

Footballguys view: Spiller was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, and he said he's feeling good. The team hasn't made a decision on whether he'll play against the Raiders.

  49ers | Frank Gore, Carlos Hyde sit out    Wed Dec 17, 06:56 PM

San Francisco 49ers RBs Frank Gore (concussion) and Carlos Hyde (ankle) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to watch this closely. With both banged up, we could see Alphonso Smith start at running back on Saturday against the Chargers.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee, ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

  Bears | Jimmy Clausen to start in Week 16    Wed Dec 17, 06:34 PM

  Bears | Jay Cutler benched this week    Wed Dec 17, 06:34 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will be benched in favor of QB Jimmy Clausen in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Should anyone be surprised? Cutler has phenomenal natural talent, but even Jeff George thinks he needs to play better. Cutler is a lot like George--big arm, big attitude, gets coaches fired, and never plays up to his potential. This move could be a last-ditch desperation move by Marc Trestman so he can keep his job as the head coach. We had high hopes for Trestman when he took over in Chicago, but he's been held back by Cutler's play. Oh yeah, it didn't help the Bears extended Cutler's contract in January of 2014 either. What a mess.

  Chiefs | Dwayne Bowe sick Wednesday    Wed Dec 17, 06:26 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (illness) sat out of practice with an illness Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners are sick of Bowe underperforming, but they're not taking the day off. In all seriousness, Bowe should be back for another underwhelming performance in Week 16.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers says he's playing    Wed Dec 17, 05:56 PM

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (chest, back) took part in a walkthrough Wednesday, Dec. 17, but didn't take part in practice, but he fully expects to play in Week 16 against the San Francisco 49ers. 'At this point in the week I think there's no doubt,' Rivers said. TE Antonio Gates said Rivers has been dealing with a 'very severe rib injury' in mid-November. Rivers has started 142 straight games, and he thinks sitting out practice this week will help him play this weekend.

Footballguys view: Rivers may play, but you're not starting him. He just hasn't played well in recent weeks, and now he's probably playing without top target Keenan Allen (collarbone) in Week 16.

  49ers | Carlos Hyde doesn't expect to play    Wed Dec 17, 05:31 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (knee, back) received good news from his MRI results, but he said it would take a miracle for him to play in Week 16 against the San Diego Chargers.

Footballguys view: Frank Gore is dealing with a concussion right now, so the 49ers may be forced to start Alphonso Smith on Saturday against the Chargers. Stay tuned.

  Vikings | Limited practice for Matt Asiata    Wed Dec 17, 05:05 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (foot) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: Asiata makes for an interesting RB2 with upside this week. The Vikings play the Dolphins in Week 16, and Miami has been getting gashed on the ground. Asiata is a tough inside runner, and he's surprisingly used more as a receiver than some think.

  Vikings | Greg Jennings limited    Wed Dec 17, 05:03 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: Charles X. Johnson looks like Teddy Bridgewater's favorite target. However, Jennings has scored a TD in three of the last four weeks. Fantasy owners can rely on him as a low-end WR4 with upside.

  Texans | Andre Johnson has connection with backups    Wed Dec 17, 04:43 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson has a pretty good connection with both QBs Thaddeus Lewis and Case Keenum, who will be battling for the start in Week 16 against the Baltimore Ravens. Lewis was coached by head coach Bill O'Brien back in college, and Lewis also worked with Johnson in the offseason in South Florida.

Footballguys view: Keenum connected with Johnson for five touchdown passes last year (including three in one game), and Johnson likes Keenum's approach at the QB position.
