Forbath kicking for Jags today

Not that any of you are down to using the Jacksonville kicker at this point (we hope), but it will be newly signed KAI FORBATH today vs. Washington. Usual starter JOSH LAMBO turned up on the injury report late in the week after tweaking his groin at practice.

Bills down to fumes at running back

NOW OFFICIAL: Buffalo running backs LESEAN MCCOY and CHRIS IVORY are both inactive today. Previous post: Buffalo is expected to be without running back LeSean McCoy (hamstring) for today's game againstMore the Lions, and usual backup Chris Ivory (shoulder) will be a game-time decision and sounds like he's probably on the doubtful side of questionable. MARCUS MURPHY and KEITH FORD would be the next men up -- to say nothing of quarterback JOSH ALLEN, who has handled a substantial part of the rushing work himself in recent games. Less

T.Y. Hilton will tough it out again

Colts receiver T.Y. HILTON is officially active for today's game vs. Dallas, despite not practicing all week with an ankle injury. We are a little nervous about using him given theMore new injury and the fact that he was a game-time call last week with a different (shoulder) injury, such that he could leave if he suffered a setback to either. On the other hand, he played hurt last week and had an enormous game, and how many comparable options can you possibly have? Less

Cowboys going without Martin

Dallas guard ZACK MARTIN is out this week after aggravating the same knee injury that has bothered him for much of the season. Big loss for the Cowboys, obviously, and aMore milestone of sorts for Martin himself, who has reportedly never missed a game at any level in his football-playing life. We wish him a speedy return and another long streak of games played thereafter. Less

Steelers downgrade Conner, activate Rogers

Pittsburgh has downgraded running back JAMES CONNER to doubtful for today's showdown with New England, and it sounds like he's pretty much certain not to play. JAYLEN SAMUELS gets another crackMore at making an impact, although he failed to do much in Week 14 at Oakland. Elsewhere on the roster, the Steelers have activated receiver ELI ROGERS, who suffered a torn ACL in last season's playoff loss to Jacksonville. Rogers was never exactly great and probably has a good bit of rust to knock off, but he could help to diversify a passing game that will likely be very busy (particularly if Conner is out) against the Patriots.

REMINDER: Wentz is out

No surprise here, but the Eagles have made official what was rumored for much of this week: quarterback CARSON WENTZ will not play tonight at the Rams. Wentz has a fractured vertebra that may cost him the rest of the season. NICK FOLES takes over for Week 15 at least.

REMINDER: OBJ is out

In case you've been busy catching up on your holiday shopping, a reminder: the Giants have ruled receiver ODELL BECKHAM JR. out for Week 15 with the same bruised quad thatMore caused him to sit out last week as well. There is some disagreement over whether or not Beckham suffered a setback with the injury this week, but whatever; he isn't playing. Less

OBJ skips Wednesday practice

Giants wide receiver ODELL BECKHAM JR. did not practice Wednesday as he continues to nurse the quad injury that held him out in Week 14. Beckham was spotted stretching on theMore field despite not doing much else, so there is some hope that he is progressing toward a return to game action. We'll be watching him closely the rest of the week. Less

Saints release Brandon Marshall

Another big-bodied wide receiver just saw his time with the Saints end before he ever appeared in a game for the team, as New Orleans cut BRANDON MARSHALL on Wednesday, oneMore month after signing him. Marshall was never the team's first choice at the position, but fellow signee Dez Bryant had suffered an Achilles tear in practice before he could make his season debut. The next vaguely similar player to try his luck will be tight end ERIK SWOOPE, apparently, as the Saints have claimed him after he was waived by Indianapolis earlier in the week. Swoope will now draw superficial comparisons to one-time Saint Jimmy Graham -- both played basketball at the University of Miami (FL) and neither had much of a pre-NFL football background -- but he obviously has a long, long way to go before he will be compared to Graham on the field.

Ekeler out, Gordon questionable for Chargers

The Chargers have officially ruled RB AUSTIN EKELER (neck, concussion) out of Thursday night's game at Kansas City, but there is cause for optimism at the position even so. MELVIN GORDONMore (knee) drew an official designation of questionable, signaling a 50/50 chance of playing, and did travel with the team. Just how much work Gordon would get if he did suit up, and how long it would take him to shake off the rust after being out since late November, is anyone's guess -- but at least he might not be sticking his fantasy owners with another zero.

Hill questionable, Ware doubtful for Thursday night

Kansas City's final injury report ahead of Thursday night's game vs. the Chargers has receiver TYREEK HILL (heel, wrist) listed as questionable and running back SPENCER WARE (shoulder, hamstring) listed asMore doubtful. It appears all but certain that Hill will play after practicing Tuesday and Wednesday, and just as certain that Ware will not play, but be sure to check the official inactives list before setting your lineup.

Ravens staying with Jackson over Flacco

The writing that was already on the wall for Baltimore quarterback JOE FLACCO appears to have dried completely by now: coach John Harbaugh announced Wednesday that rookie LAMAR JACKSON will remainMore the Ravens' starter, even now that Flacco has been medically cleared to return from his hip injury. Flacco will serve as the backup for this weekend's game vs. Tampa Bay, and it seems certain that he will be looking for a new team in the coming offseason. Less

Wentz unlikely to play this week, maybe not again in 2018

Philadelphia quarterback CARSON WENTZ is dealing with a back injury, and the story seems to be escalating by the hour. Early Wednesday came word that Wentz might not play this weekendMore at the Rams. Then that progressed to being unlikely to play, and there were whispers about the team shutting him down for the rest of the season. Now he sounds all but certain to sit out in Week 15, and the Eagles are probably turning to NICK FOLES as their late-season starter, including in the playoffs should they make it that far. And, sure, that turned out OK the last time it happened -- but this Eagles team is not that Eagles team. Stay tuned for additional word on Wentz. Less

Bolts could be without top two RBs

A week ago there was much speculation that Chargers running back MELVIN GORDON (knee) could be back for this Thursday's crucial game at Kansas City, but as of Tuesday the newsMore appeared to be doubly worse. Not only is Gordon still very iffy, but RB2 AUSTIN EKELER is also unlikely to play after picking up a neck injury and concussion in Week 14. This is a good moment to get around to adding rookie JUSTIN JACKSON if you still can. Less

Hill back at practice for KC

Kansas City receiver TYREEK HILL participated in practice Tuesday, and while nothing is certain quite yet, he appears to be on track to suit up for the team's Thursday night showdownMore with the Chargers. ESPN's Michele Steele tweeted that Hill was running and cutting at practice and "looks fine." Sounds like you're probably going to want to leave him in your lineups. Less
