  • Patriots' Ezekiel Elliott: Limited by thigh issue

    Elliott (thigh) was limited at practice Wednesday.

    Elliott, who was one of 10 New England players listed as limited Wednesday, was on the field for 15 of a possible 68 snaps on offense in this past Sunday's 10-7 loss to the Giants. With a limited session to start the week, the running back's status is now worth monitoring as this weekend's game against the Chargers approaches. If Elliott is available for Week 13 action, however, he'll be in line to continue to work behind fellow RB Rhamondre Stevenson, a context that limits his fantasy utility to deeper formats.

  • Tyrus Wheat DE | DAL

    Cowboys' Tyrus Wheat: Will be available Thursday

    Wheat (concussion) does not carry an injury designation into Thursday's game versus the Seahawks, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

    Wheat will be one of the very few players this season to sustain a concussion during a game and still be available for the following contest. With Dallas' defensive line essentially at full strength, Wheat will likely be involved only sparingly, if at all, in Week 13.

  • Packers' Dontayvion Wicks: Limited in practice Wednesday

    Wicks was limited at Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury.

    Wicks sustained a concussion near the end of the Packers' Week 11 win against the Chargers, and a knee injury also appeared on the team's Week 12 practice reports, capping him to one limited showing at last Wednesday's walkthrough. In the end, he didn't have enough time to get through the protocol for head injuries, but coach Matt LaFleur revealed Monday that Wicks had cleared its five phases, per Rob Demovsky of Having said that, the knee issue still is impacting Wicks' on-field work, so his status will continue to be watched as the weekend draws closer.

  • Chase Claypool WR | MIA

    Dolphins' Chase Claypool: Still working through injury

    Claypool (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports.

    Claypool hasn't played since Week 9 with the injury and will likely head into the weekend questionable again. However, if he's able to ramp up his activity level Thursday or Friday, he could still suit up Sunday against the Commanders.

  • Steelers' Montravius Adams: Appears ready to play Sunday

    Adams (ankle) was a full participant at practice Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Adams has missed Pittsburgh's last three games due to an ankle injury, but it now looks like he's finally back at 100 percent strength. He's still on pace for a career-best season despite already having missed time, and he should be heavily involved when he returns in Week 13.

  • Will Levis QB | TEN

    Titans' Will Levis: Limited by ankle issue

    Levis was a limited participant at practice Wednesday due to an ankle injury, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Per John Glennon of, Levis appeared to be hampered to some degree by his ankle during Wednesday's session, but given that the quarterback was able to work through the issue -- albeit in a limited fashion -- he'll most likely be available Sunday against the Colts. That said, Levis will need to practice fully by Friday in order to avoid carrying an injury designation into the weekend.

  • Alex Anzalone MLB | DET

    Lions' Alex Anzalone: Receives day off

    Anzalone (hand) was a non-participant during practice Wednesday.

    Anzalone likely suffered the injury in the Lions' Thanksgiving Day loss to the Packers, although it's not clear that is the case. The veteran linebacker will work to get back on the field Thursday ahead of the team's Week 13 matchup with the Saints.

  • Kyle Trask QB | TB

    Buccaneers' Kyle Trask: Makes second appearance Week 12

    Trask played two of the Buccaneers' 60 snaps on offense in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Buccaneers, throwing an incompletion on his lone pass attempt.

    Trask has been active for every game this season as the Buccaneers' No. 2 quarterback, but Sunday marked just the second time he's seen the field. He was pressed into action in a key spot in the first quarter, when starter Baker Mayfield injured his ankle on a goal-line carry. Trask stepped in on second-and-goal, but after a false-start penalty and then a three-yard Rachaad White run, Trask was unable to connect with Chris Godwin on a potential touchdown on third down. The Buccaneers proceeded to kick a field goal, and Trask remained on the sideline the rest of the game after Mayfield was cleared to return for the team's next possession. Mayfield was a full practice participant Wednesday and is on track to start Sunday against the Panthers, so Trask will be sticking in a backup role once again this weekend.

  • Trey McBride TE | ARI

    Cardinals' Trey McBride: Dealing with groin issue

    McBride was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice due to a groin injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    McBride was emerging as one of Arizona's top pass catchers before Kyler Murray returned from his torn ACL in Week 10, and since then the second-year tight end has combined for 20 catches (on 25 targets) for 234 yards over the last three games. Now, though, McBride is dealing with a health concern that isn't allowing for any on-field reps to kick off Week 13 prep. As a result, his status will be one to monitor closely as the weekend approaches to get a sense of his potential to suit up Sunday at Pittsburgh.

  • Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: Primed for Week 13 return

    Fitzpatrick (hamstring) was a full participant at practice Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Fitzpatrick finally appears to be back to full strength after he sat out of Pittsburgh's last four games due to a hamstring injury. He projects as a good IDP option for Week 13, when the Steelers host the Cardinals.
