He was reportedly throwing the ball and moving around well.

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

RB | Jonathan Stewart | Carolina Panthers | Injury, Fantasy
Carolina Panthers LB Jordan Senn (hamstring, illness) and RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 12. OT Nate Chandler (elbow), DT Dwan Edwards (non-injury), OT Jordan Gross (non-injury), OG Chris Scott (knee) and OG Travelle Wharton (non-injury) practiced in full.

RB | Andre Ellington | Arizona Cardinals | Injury, Fantasy

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

RB | Ben Tate | Houston Texans | Injury, Fantasy

RB | Matt Asiata | Minnesota Vikings | Injury, Fantasy
Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said the team is in wait-and-see mode on RBs Adrian Peterson (foot) and Toby Gerhart (hamstring) for Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles, and the team isn't optimistic that either back will be able to play. "No, not at this stage. We're getting Matt Asiata ready to roll," Musgrave said.

It's not looking good for AD or Gerhart. The final determination will come down to if either can practice Friday. If you own one or both, Asiata is not an option to start if you want to advance in the fantasy playoffs. Look elsewhere if neither runner plays this weekend.

WR | Josh Gordon | Cleveland Browns | Fantasy
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has at least 125 receiving yards in each of the last four games. That's the third-longest streak in league history. Calvin Johnson (2012) and Pat Studstill (1966) have each done it five times in a row.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said WR Percy Harvin (hip) will be considered week-to-week until he is ready to return to practice.

WR | Denarius Moore | Oakland Raiders | Injury, Fantasy
Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said WR Denarius Moore (shoulder) appears to be on track to play Week 15, but a decision has not been made at this point.

WR | Reggie Wayne | Indianapolis Colts | Injury, Fantasy
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (knee) said he is not sure if he will participate in the offseason workouts but expects to be ready for training camp. He said he recently had his knee examined and indicated things are looking good in the knee.

WR | Mario Manningham | San Francisco 49ers | Injury, Fantasy
San Francisco 49ers WR Mario Manningham (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

WR | Michael Crabtree | San Francisco 49ers | Injury, Fantasy
San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders (foot) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

WR | Tavon Austin | St. Louis Rams | Injury, Fantasy
St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

Austin is being listed as day-to-day, and he may be questionable for Week 15 against the New Orleans Saints. Austin is a flex play, at best. Keep tabs on his status leading up to Sunday.

WR | Danny Amendola | New England Patriots | Injury, Fantasy
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (groin) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

WR | Kenbrell Thompkins | New England Patriots | Injury, Fantasy
New England Patriots WR Kenbrell Thompkins (hip) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

WR | Dexter McCluster | Kansas City Chiefs | Injury, Fantasy
Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

This is a new injury; McCluster was not on the injury report yesterday. The Chiefs would miss him on special teams the most if it's significant enough to keep him out against the Oakland Raiders. If he plays, he's a flex, at best, in deeper leagues.

WR | Aaron Dobson | New England Patriots | Injury, Fantasy
New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (foot) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

WR | Santonio Holmes | New York Jets | Injury, Fantasy
New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (foot, hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

The Carolina Panthers are good at getting pressure on opposing quarterbacks, so it may be difficult for Geno Smith to have much success in this one. However, the Panthers' secondary is their weakness. Still, Holmes is a flex play, at best.

WR | Michael Floyd | Arizona Cardinals | Injury, Fantasy
Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

WR | Roddy White | Atlanta Falcons | Injury, Fantasy
Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.


Tight End

TE | Virgil Green | Denver Broncos | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green started over TE Jacob Tamme in the slot in Week 15. Green didn't record a reception.

TE | Brent Celek | Philadelphia Eagles | Fantasy
With just 25 catches and 348 receiving yards, Philadelphia Eagles TE Brent Celek is on a 31-catch, 428-yard pace. Both numbers would be the lowest since his second year in the league in 2008. However, Celek is being used more as a blocking TE this year in the Eagles' No. 1 run offense.

TE | Owen Daniels | Houston Texans | Injury, Fantasy
Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (leg) has been ruled out for Week 15.

TE | Zach Miller | Seattle Seahawks | Injury, Fantasy
Seattle Seahawks TE Zach Miller (ribs) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

TE | Jordan Reed | Washington Redskins | Injury, Fantasy
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) will be held out for the final three regular season games, according to multiple sources. The team reportedly doesn't want to risk further serious injury to Reed with the team eliminated from playoff contention. Reed has yet to practice this week.

Logan Paulsen will be the primary tight end at Kirk Cousins' disposal now. Young quarterbacks typically rely heavily on their tight ends, meaning Paulsen could have intrigue as a sleeper TE in the final couple of weeks.

TE | John Carlson | Minnesota Vikings | Injury, Fantasy
Minnesota Vikings TE John Carlson (concussion) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

TE | Jordan Cameron | Cleveland Browns | Injury, Fantasy
Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (ribs) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

TE | Greg Olsen | Carolina Panthers | Injury, Fantasy
Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

Olsen's injury doesn't appear to be serious. He's a strong play as a midrange TE1 against the New York Jets in Week 15.

TE | Rob Housler | Arizona Cardinals | Injury, Fantasy
Arizona Cardinals TE Rob Housler (groin) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 12. OG Paul Fanaika (back) was limited.
