    11/29/15WRDanny AmendolaKNEEQUESTIONABLEAmendola (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos, the Boston Herald reports.

    Though Amendola practiced in a limited fashion both Thursday and Friday, his Week 12 status may come down to a game-day call, which is a bit tricky for his fantasy owners, considering that the Patriots kick off at 8:30 ET on Sunday.

    11/29/15DTAlan BranchELBOWPROBABLEThe Patriots have reportedly re-signed defensive tackle Alan Branch to a two-year deal worth a maximum of $6.6 million, according to Albert Breer of the NFL Network.

    11/29/15CBJustin ColemanHANDOUTThree injured players have been placed on the inactive list by the Patriots for their season opener Thursday night against Pittsburgh. They are running back Travaris Cadet (hamstring), defensive lineman Trey Flowers (knee) and safety Tavon Wilson (quad).
    11/29/15LBJamie CollinsILLNESSDOUBTFULCollins (illness) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Broncos, the Boston Herald reports.

    On a positive note, Collins returned to to a limited practice Friday, but at this point it looks likely that the linebacker's return to game action won't occur until Week 13's tilt against the Eagles.

    11/29/15WRJulian EdelmanFOOTOUTEdelman underwent foot surgery Monday on the Jones fracture he suffered Sunday against the Giants, and he could return in 6-to-8 weeks, according to Albert Breer of NFL Network.

    Breer notes that the recovery timeframe is a rough one, so while it could theoretically allow Edelman to return during the postseason, it's certainly no guarantee. Danny Amendola is expected to get an increase in offensive snaps with Edelman sidelined, while Brandon LaFell, Aaron Dobson and Rob Gronkowski could all see more targets as well.

    11/29/15DEChandler JonesABDOMENPROBABLEJones (abdomen) was on the field for 63 of the Patriots' 71 defensive snaps in Monday's win over the Bills, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

    Per the report, Jones had a chance to rack up a sack Monday, but QB Tyrod Taylor slipped out of the defensive end's grasp, with Jones thus limited to one tackle in the game. Through 10 games overall, Jones has notched 31 tackles and 10.5 sacks.

    11/29/15WRKeshawn MartinHAMSTRINGQUESTIONABLEMartin (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos, the Boston Herald reports.

    As is fellow wideout Danny Amendola, though with Martin not having suited up since Week 6 and the Patriots not kicking off until 8:30 ET on Sunday, Martin looks like a risky roll in Week 12. Down the road though, when his health and role in the team's offense are re-established, Martin could carve out some deep league utility in the absence of Julian Edelman.

    11/29/15CBBrandon BoykinANKLEPROBABLEThe Eagles traded cornerback Brandon Boykin to the Steelers for a conditional fifth-round draft pick in the 2016 draft, the team announced on Sunday.
    11/29/15LBTerence GarvinKNEEPROBABLELinebacker Terence Garvin, who made his first start in Week 16, won't make his second on Sunday. He is the lone Steelers player ruled out for the game against the Browns. Fellow linebacker Jason Worilds (abdomen) is questionable while the other injured are probable.
    11/29/15LBJames HarrisonKNEEPROBABLEHarrison (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game, Chris Adamski of the Tribuen Review reports.

    Harrison didn't practice all week, so this news doesn't come as much of a surprise. The 37-year-old will miss his first game of the season, but with the Steelers slated for a bye next week, Harrison will have plenty of time to recuperate for the next matchup against the Seahawks in Week 12.

    (Updated 11/13/2015)
    11/29/15LBRyan ShazierKNEEQUESTIONABLEThe Steelers list Shazier (knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

    Shazier was listed as a full practice participant Friday, but the questionable designation suggests that his Week 12 status must still be verified in advance of Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff. The linebacker remains on the IDP radar, having notched 47 tackles, three sacks and two forced fumbles in six games to date.

    (Updated 11/27/2015)
    11/29/15TEMatt SpaethKNEEQUESTIONABLESpaeth caught his only target for four yards in the Steelers' 16-10 loss to the Bengals on Sunday.

    Used primarily as a blocker and on special teams, the catch was the first for Spaeth, and only his second target of the season. Even if Heath Miller were to miss significant playing time, Spaeth is not worth a spot on fantasy rosters.

    11/29/15SShamarko ThomasKNEEPROBABLEThird-year safety Shamarko Thomas has the unenviable task of replacing future Hall of Famer Troy Polamalu in the Steelers defensive backfield, but Thomas is trying his best to fill some very big shoes, per The Associated Press
