NFL Recent Player News
|11/25/2015||Rob Gronkowski, NE, TE|
|Gronkowski did very little Monday night.
Analysis: Gronkowski had two catches for 37 yards in an awful showing for fantasy owners. Keep in mind Denver could bottle him up next week too so the superstar could have another poor effort.
|11/24/2015||Case Keenum, StL, QB|
|Keenum returned to St. Louis Rams practice on a limited basis after missing one workout due to a concussion. The Rams (4-6) did not make Keenum available to the media Wednesday because he's still in the concussion protocol. Coach Jeff Fisher said he was optimistic, but would know better Friday about Keenum's availability.
Analysis: Nick Foles would regain his starting spot this week at Cincinnati if Keenum can't come back. Foles was benched after several poor outings and Keenum wasn't much of an improvement, going 12 for 26 for just 136 yards and one touchdown.
|11/24/2015||Nick Moody, Sea, LB|
|Seattle placed Moody on injured reserve Tuesday.
Analysis: Moody hurt his hamstring in Sunday's win against San Francisco.
|11/24/2015||Bryce Brown, Sea, RB|
|Seattle re-signed Brown on Tuesday for additional depth in the backfield.
Analysis: Brown is in his second stint with the Seahawks, but could be active for the first time this season with Marshawn Lynch not expected to play on Sunday against Pittsburgh. Seattle played last week against San Francisco with just two running backs active, Thomas Rawls and Fred Jackson.
|11/24/2015||Jimmy Clausen, Bal, QB|
|The Ravens have claimed Clausen off waivers to serve as backup to Matt Schaub. Clausen was waived by the Bears on Monday. He played in two games with Chicago this season, starting once.
Analysis: The six-year veteran was chosen by Carolina in the second round of the 2010 draft after playing college ball at Notre Dame. Clausen has played in 19 games, starting 12. He has five touchdown passes and 11 interceptions over his career.
|11/24/2015||Quinton Coples, Mia, DE|
|Coples has been claimed by the Miami Dolphins one day after he was waived by the New York Jets. The Dolphins, who play the Jets on Sunday, have been hit hard by injuries at linebacker and reinforced the position Tuesday.
Analysis: The Jets' decision to part with Coples was a surprise despite his diminished role this season. They made him the 16th overall pick in the 2012 draft. Coples had 16 1/2 sacks in three seasons under coach Rex Ryan, including 6 1/2 in 2014, but had none this season while starting only two games in Todd Bowles' 3-4 system. The Dolphins play a 4-3 scheme.
|11/24/2015||Josh Martin, NYJ, LB|
|The New York Jets have signed Martin to their active roster from the Indianapolis Colts' practice squad. He replaces Quinton Coples, the Jets' 2012 first-round draft pick who was waived on Monday.
Analysis: Martin was signed by the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent in 2013 out of Columbia University, where he was an All-Ivy League first-team selection. He spent two seasons in Kansas City before being signed by Tampa Bay in September. He was waived/injured by the Buccaneers last month and signed to the Colts' practice squad on Oct. 31.
|11/24/2015||Danny Amendola, NE, WR|
|Amendola's injury doesn't appear serious.
Analysis: Amendola suffered a knee sprain Monday and isn't expected to miss time.
|11/24/2015||Mario Williams, Buf, DE|
|Williams is uncertain for Sunday's game against Kansas City.
Analysis: Williams has a foot injury.
|11/24/2015||Tyrod Taylor, Buf, QB|
|Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan says Taylor should be healthy enough to play against Kansas City on Sunday.
Analysis: Taylor's status was a concern. Though he finished Monday's game against New England, he was hampered by an injury to his right shoulder in the final quarter. He went 20 of 36 for 233 yards without a TD or an INT.
|11/24/2015||Josh McCown, Cle, QB|
|Coach Mike Pettine said Josh McCown will start Monday night's game against Baltimore in place of Johnny Manziel, who was recently handed the starting job but couldn't keep it while the team had a week off.
Analysis: McCown gets the nod even though the 22-year-old Manziel has shown progress on the field during his second NFL season. However, despite saying he had learned from his past, Manziel, who spent 70 days during the offseason in a rehab facility specializing in alcohol and drug treatment, he has not shown the maturity the Browns are looking for from their quarterback.
|11/24/2015||Kevin White, Chi, WR|
|The Chicago Bears opened a three-week practice window for White to determine if they will activate him this season. White, the No. 7 pick in this year's draft, has spent the season on the physically unable to perform list because of a stress fracture in his left shin. The Bears have until the end of this 21-day period, which began Tuesday, to place the West Virginia standout on the active roster or season-ending injured reserve.
Analysis: The Bears saw him as a potential starter with Alshon Jeffery. But White started experiencing pain in his shin in June during organized team activities. He had surgery in August after therapy failed to cure his discomfort.
|11/24/2015||Johnny Manziel, Cle, QB|
|Browns coach Mike Pettine says he benched Manziel because the quarterback violated the team's trust with his behavior during the bye week. Manziel was demoted from starter to third string on Tuesday by Pettine, who was upset after a video emerged of the second-year QB partying last week in Texas while the Browns were off. Before Manziel left town, Pettine said he made it clear to Manziel that he needed to act in a responsible manner.
Analysis: Pettine said Josh McCown will start Monday night's game against Baltimore in place of Manziel, who was recently handed the starting job but couldn't keep it while the team had a week off. Manziel's benching comes in the wake of a video surfacing of him partying last weekend in Texas. He had promised not to bring any embarrassment to the team during its week off, but Pettine said he was both disappointed and frustrated by Manziel's actions.
|11/24/2015||Charles Clay, Buf, TE|
|Clay sustained a neck injury in Monday's night loss to New England.
Analysis: Clay's status wasn't immediately known.
|11/24/2015||Bacarri Rambo, Buf, S|
|Rambo, one of the top playmakers on the Bills' defense, suffered a shoulder injury Monday night.
Analysis: His status is uncertain.
|11/24/2015||Aaron Dobson, NE, WR|
|Dobson suffered an ankle injury in Monday night's win.
Analysis: His status is uncertain at this point.
|11/23/2015||Andy Dalton, Cin, QB|
|Dalton threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's 34-31 loss to Arizona.
Analysis: Dalton bounced back nicely after struggling in a 10-6 loss to Houston in Week 10. The Bengals, though, have lost back-to-back games.
|11/23/2015||Patrick Peterson, Ari, CB|
|Peterson left Sunday's game late with an ankle injury.
Analysis: His status will be updated at a later time.
|11/23/2015||Frostee Rucker, Ari, DT|
|Rucker left Sunday's game early in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury.
Analysis: His status wasn't immediately known.
|11/23/2015||Darqueze Dennard, Cin, CB|
|Dennard left Sunday night's game with a shoulder injury in the first half.
Analysis: His status is uncertain at this point.
