Tom Brady is 2-5 in games at Denver and the Patriots' offense is running low on offensive weapons. Can they keep the streak going? Three teams that look playoff worthy? The Seahawks, Texans and ... Bucs.
Can Big Ben and the Steelers keep pace with the division-leading Bengals? They'll have to get past the Seahawks -- in Seattle. Will Brock Osweiler give the Broncos a fighting chance against the 10-0 Patriots?
Bennett (ribs) was ruled out for Thursday's game at Green Bay.
Bennett turned in limited practices both Tuesday and Wednesday, likely in order to test out his injured ribs, but the Bears will opt for caution and rest the tight end on a short week. In his stead, Zach Miller should have an ample workload, which could expand further if Alshon Jeffery (groin/shoulder) and Matt Forte (knee) are eventually ruled out.
Rolle (knee) is not expected to play in Thursday's game against the Packers, ESPN.com reports.
Rolle missed Sunday's game against the Broncos after injuring his knee during Saturday's walkthrough. Chris Prosinski figures to start for a second straight week, following a six-tackle, one-sack showing Sunday afternoon. He's a better IDP option than rookie free safety Adrian Amos, who has just 39 tackles this season despite starting every game.
Royal (knee) was ruled out for Thursday's contest at Green Bay.
Royal will miss his fourth consecutive game due to a knee injury, which he suffered in Week 8. With Martellus Bennett (rib) also sidelined, and Alshon Jeffery (groin/shoulder) and Matt Forte (knee) questionable Thursday, the Bears may again trot out Marquess Wilson (groin) as the No. 1 wide receiver.
Gerhart (groin) is active for Thursday's game against the Titans, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.
Gerhart was a healthy scratch the past two weeks, but with Bernard Pierce (calf) unable to play, the former Viking is now in line to serve as the No. 3 running back. With T.J. Yeldon (groin) and Denard Robinson also active, Gerhart is unlikely to get more than two or three touches, unless Yeldon's injury flares up during the
Hurns (foot) is listed as probable for Sunday's matchup with San Diego, Jaguars.com reports.
Hurns has been nursing minor injuries to his foot and thigh, and he was limited in practice Wednesday. However, neither ailment appears to be overly serious, and the expectation is that Hurns will be available to line up opposite Allen Robinson in Week 12. Hurns' seven-game touchdown streak was snapped last week against Tennessee but he remains a productive option in what's been a surprisingly fantasy-friendly Jaguars passing attack.
Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart was among the notable players listed on the final injury report for Week 8 at home against Miami. Gerhart was listed as probable after missing two straight games with a foot injury. Craig Loston (hamstring) and Luke Bowanko were also labeled probable.
Jaguars defensive lineman Roy Miller is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery on Wednesday, according to the Florida Times-Union on Monday. Miller hopes that the surgeon is able to repair his torn meniscus instead of removing it.
Pierce (calf) is considered doubtful to play Sunday against the Chargers, Jaguars.com reports.
Pierce has been battling a calf injury for the last couple of weeks, and he was inactive for last Thursday's win over the Titans. The former Raven appears destined for a second straight inactive designation, though he likely wouldn't hold a major role in the offense, regardless.
Wide receiver Justin Blackmon , who hasn't practiced or played since 2013 after being suspended for the third time for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, is unlikely to return to the Jaguars according to GM David Caldwell, per ESPN.com.
