    11/26/15TEOwen DanielsKneeQUESTIONABLEDaniels (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday.

    With no reported setbacks in Week 11, we suspect that Daniels' limitations Wednesday were maintenance-related, with a probable designation for Sunday night's game against the Patriots a likely outcome Friday.

    11/26/15TEVirgil GreenFingerPROBABLEGreen was targeted once in Sunday's win over Chicago, recording a nine-yard reception.

    Following a three-catch performance in Week 8, Green has been targeted just once in each of the past three contests. In Brock Osweiler's first game under center, head coach Gary Kubiak implemented his multi-tight end scheme to full effect, with 12 of 27 passes directed at tight ends. Eleven of those targets, however, went to Owen Daniels and Vernon Davis. Green saw the field just 26 times as compared to Daniels, 59, and Davis, 50, and is unlikely to benefit much from Denver's adjusted offense.

    11/26/15QBPeyton ManningFootQUESTIONABLENFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggested Thursday that Manning (foot) is at least three weeks away from playing again.

    When explaining the basis of the estimate, Rapoport noted Thursday that Manning is "going to be in a cast for up to 10 days, then he's got another week of rehab, and then he's got to try to get on the field." Based on that, Rapoport suggests that "the date to circle on your calendar is Dec. 20 against the Steelers. That's the most realistic date that Manning could be back, but no one has guaranteed to me that he'll definitely be back on the field, especially if Brock Osweiler is playing well." In any case, the Broncos have already acknowledged that Manning -- who continues to recover from a plantar fascia tear -- is expected to miss at least the next two games, with Osweiler slated to fill in for him at QB in the meantime.

    11/26/15WREmmanuel SandersAnkle, fingerQUESTIONABLESanders (ankle/finger) practiced for the second straight day Thursday, the Denver Post reports.

    Sanders missed this past Sunday's win over the Bears with a left high ankle sprain, but the report relays that wideout "ran well both days in practice this week," which bodes well for his chances of suiting up Sunday night against the Patriots.

    11/26/15DEAntonio SmithHipPROBABLEBroncos defensive end Antonio Smith is being investigated for child abuse, TMZ reported early Thursday morning. 
    11/26/15DEVance WalkerShoulderQUESTIONABLEDefensive tackle Vance Walker has signed a two-year contract worth $5 million with the Broncos, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.
    11/26/15LBDeMarcus WareBackQUESTIONABLEWare (back) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

    More on Ware's status Friday, but at this stage he looks iffy for Sunday night's game against the Patriots.

    11/26/15LBAnthony BarrHandPROBABLEBarr (hand) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers.

    With a varied line in his second campaign -- 47 tackles (39 solo), 1.5 sacks, one interception, and one forced fumbled in nine contests -- Barr will line up at strong-side linebacker in an attempt to corral Aaron Rodgers and company.

    11/26/15SRobert BlantonAnkleQUESTIONABLEVikings safety Robert Blanton is likely to start at strong safety this week against Denver with Andrew Sendejo out with a knee injury, ESPN reports.

    Blanton had lost out on the starting job and had a limited role off the bench as he didn't even play a snap on defense in Week 2. He should get a full workload Sunday with Sendejo out.

    (Updated 10/02/2015)
    11/26/15QBTeddy BridgewaterLeft shoulderPROBABLEBridgewater completed 25 of 37 passes for 296 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-13 loss to the Packers. He was sacked six times, and finished with 43 rushing yards on four carries.

    Bridgewater took a number of big hits, and had to leave the game briefly in the first half. While he showed toughness throughout, he couldn't make enough plays in the end. His fantasy production continues to be limited, with just one 300-yard passing game, and one touchdown or less in nine of 10 contests this season. The second-year QB has added some fantasy value as a runner, with a couple of touchdowns on the ground. Next week, he and the Vikings will travel to Atlanta to play the Falcons, who have generally held opposing QBs in check this year.

    11/26/15DTSharrif FloydAnkleQUESTIONABLEFloyd (ankle) is listed as active Sunday in Oakland, Ben Goessling of ESPN.com reports.

    Floyd missed three games following surgery to remove cartilage from his knee, but after building up his practice reps during the week, the defensive tackle will make his first appearance since Week 6.

    (Updated 11/15/2015)
    11/26/15DEEverson GriffenHip, shoulderQUESTIONABLEGriffen (neck) is active Sunday against the Rams.

    After putting in limited practices earlier in the week, Griffen put in a full practice on Friday and will be in the lineup at right defensive end. His presence will help the Vikings defensive line as they try to slow down Todd Gurley and the Rams offense.

    (Updated 11/08/2015)
    11/26/15LBEric KendricksRibsPROBABLEKendricks had seven total tackles and a tackle for a loss while playing 68 snaps in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

    Kendricks missed two games with injured ribs, but was back as the starter at middle linebacker and played a full game.

    (Updated 11/23/2015)
    11/26/15SHarrison SmithKneeQUESTIONABLESmith did not practice Wednesday due to a sore knee but expects to play Sunday against Atlanta, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Smith hurt his knee early in last week's loss to Green Bay but was able to play a full game. It sounds like he just needs some rest for the injury, but check to see if he practices Friday.
