Quarterback

QB | Robert Griffin III | Washington Redskins | Injury, Fantasy
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (groin) was able to continue playing in the second half of the Week 12 game against the San Francisco 49ers despite being kicked in the groin by LB Aldon Smith.

QB | Jay Cutler | Chicago Bears | Injury, Fantasy
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (ankle) said he hopes to be able play in the team's Week 14 or Week 15 game. He said he definitely will be able to play again this season.

QB | Aaron Rodgers | Green Bay Packers | Injury
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) did not participate in practice Monday, Nov. 25. The Packers did not practice and this is an estimation.

QB | Geno Smith | New York Jets | Fantasy
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said QB Geno Smith will be the starting quarterback Week 13.

QB | Case Keenum | Houston Texans | Fantasy
Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said QB Case Keenum will be the starting quarterback for Week 13 even though he is 0-5 as a starter.

QB | Matt Flynn | Green Bay Packers | Injury, Fantasy
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) likely will not play in the team's Week 13 game. McCarthy said either QB Matt Flynn or QB Scott Tolzien likely will start the game.

It appears likely Rodgers is at least a week away from returning to the field. It is not known if Flynn or Tolzien will start, but only desperate owners should consider starting either one this week.

QB | Josh McCown | Chicago Bears | Injury, Fantasy
Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman said QB Jay Cutler (ankle) is not expected to play in the team's Week 13 game.

Josh McCown likely will receive another start and can be a starting option for owners this week.

QB | Brandon Weeden | Cleveland Browns | Injury, Fantasy
Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski said QB Brandon Weeden may get the start in the team's Week 13 game, even though QB Jason Campbell (concussion) has not been ruled out yet.

QB | Mike Glennon | Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Fantasy
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon has 10 touchdowns and one interception in the last six games. He has also improved his accuracy on deep passes, which was his top weakness coming out of college.


Running Back

RB | Knowshon Moreno | Denver Broncos | Injury, Fantasy
Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno (ankle) has a bone bruise in his ankle, but coach Jack Del Rio said he should be ready to practice by the end of the week. That may be a stretch because of how hobbled he was Monday, Nov. 25.

It's still early in the week, but the beat writer seems to think the team will pass the ball more and utilize their other running backs Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson in Week 13. It sounds like Moreno may not be much of a factor this week, even if he plays.

RB | Darren McFadden | Oakland Raiders | Injury, Fantasy
Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) said Monday, Nov. 25, that he is hopeful of playing in the Week 13 game against the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Nov. 28. He was able to run on the side at practice Monday, and was listed as a limited participant.

RB | Chris Ivory | New York Jets | Injury, Fantasy
An update on the status of New York Jets RB Chris Ivory (ankle) will come Wednesday, Nov. 27. Ivory suffered an ankle sprain on his first carry in the Week 12 game against the Baltimore Ravens, but he was still able to rush nine times.

RB | Zac Stacy | St. Louis Rams | Injury, Fantasy
The St. Louis Rams provided no definitive update on RB Zac Stacy (concussion), who suffered a head injury in the Week 12 game against the Chicago Bears. Head coach Jeff Fisher said Monday, Nov. 25, that Stacy, and CB Trumaine Johnson (head) and OG Chris Williams (head), will each be monitored this week before any determination is made on their availability for the Week 13 game against the San Francisco 49ers. "We have a series of things that we do today, tomorrow and Wednesday," Fisher said. "Right now everybody is doing fine."

If Stacy is unable to go in Week 13, Benny Cunningham did a solid job replacing him Sunday, and would be the odds-on favorite to start. He will be a popular pick off the waiver wire. He is worth using as an RB3 or flex play if he indeed gets the starting nod.

RB | Ben Tate | Houston Texans | Injury, Fantasy
Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said RB Ben Tate (ribs) will remain the team's starting running back even though RB Dennis Johnson rushed for more yards in the team's Week 12 game. Tate rushed for one yard on seven carries while Johnson rushed for 74 yards on 13 carries.

Tate likely will be a risky play while he is dealing with his injured ribs because he probably will be limited by the injury. Johnson likely will be at least a flex option most weeks.

RB | Johnathan Franklin | Green Bay Packers | Injury
Green Bay Packers RB Johnathan Franklin (concussion, neck), TE Brandon Bostick (concussion), OG Josh Sitton (back), DE C.J. Wilson (ankle) and LB Jamari Lattimore (quadriceps) did not participate in practice Monday, Nov. 25. OT Don Barclay (knee), OT Marshall Newhouse (shoulder), DE Mike Neal (abdomen), DT Johnny Jolly (groin), LB Nick Perry (ankle, foot) and CB Sam Shields (hamstring) were limited during practice. The Packers did not practice and this is an estimation.

RB | Rashad Jennings | Oakland Raiders | Injury, Fantasy
Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) did some running Monday, Nov. 25. Head coach Dennis Allen said the team will see how McFadden feels before deciding on his status for Week 13.

McFadden likely will regain his starting job if he is able to play. If he is able to play, he should be a low-end No. 2 or flex option that comes with some risk because he could be limited. Rashad Jennings would be a solid No. 2 running back if McFadden misses another game.

RB | Montee Ball | Denver Broncos | Injury, Fantasy
Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno (ankle) is expected to be questionable at best for the team's Week 13 game. If he is not able to play, RBs C.J. Anderson, Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman could receive playing time.

Ball likely would have the most fantasy value this week if Moreno is not able to play. Anderson and Hillman could also have value depending on how much playing time they would receive. Ball and Anderson should be considered as options for starting lineups this week.

RB | Justin Forsett | Jacksonville Jaguars | Injury, Fantasy
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Justin Forsett (foot) is expected to miss four to six weeks because of a non-displaced fracture in his foot. Forsett could be placed on Injured Reserve.

Jordan Todman likely will receive more reps during games but probably is not a starting option for owners at this point.

RB | Matt Forte | Chicago Bears | Injury, Fantasy
Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte (knee) is dealing with a slightly hyperextended knee. It is not known if he will be able to practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Owners will have to monitor Forte's practice participation during the week to get a better idea of his status for Week 13.

RB | Daniel Thomas | Miami Dolphins | Injury, Fantasy
Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (ankle) suffered a torn ligament in his ankle in the team's Week 12 game that will keep him out for an extended period of time.

RB | Ryan Mathews | San Diego Chargers | Injury, Fantasy
Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (hamstring) aggravated his hamstring injury in the third quarter of the Week 12 game.

RB | Eddie Lacy | Green Bay Packers | Injury, Fantasy
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (asthma) was struggling with asthma in overtime in Week 12. "It's worse in the winter time," Lacy said. "I've had it since I was little. Sometimes it's worse than others. And it's going to get worse, I think."


Wide Receiver

WR | Denarius Moore | Oakland Raiders | Injury
Oakland Raiders SS Tyvon Branch (ankle), DE Jason Hunter (foot) and WR Denarius Moore (shoulder) were unable to practice Monday, Nov. 25. LB Kevin Burnett (quadriceps), CB Mike Jenkins (concussion), LB Kaluka Maiava (ribs), LB Sio Moore (shoulder), DT Daniel Muir (knee) and TE Mychal Rivera (concussion) were listed as limited participants.

WR | Dez Bryant | Dallas Cowboys | Injury, Fantasy
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (back) was listed as a full participant for practice Monday, Nov. 25.

Bryant was able to go for over 100 yards in the Week 12 game in New York, and barring any setbacks, he should be good to go for Thursday's game. Start him in all fantasy leagues as you normally would.

WR | Miles Austin | Dallas Cowboys | Injury, Fantasy
Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) was able to take part in a full practice session Monday, Nov. 25.

Denver Broncos interim head coach Jack Del Rio said he expects TE Julius Thomas (knee) to play Week 13.
