Colts wide receiver LaVon Brazill returned to practice Thursday after missing the Week 15 game against Houston with a foot injury. Brazill caught nine passes for 130 yards in three games previous to his injury and snagged two touchdowns in the Week 14 loss to Cincinnati.
Colts running back Donald Brown bowed out early Week 15 vs. Houston because of a stinger, but he made it onto the practice field Wednesday, indicating he's got a strong chance to be on the field Week 16 at Kansas City. If that happens, Fantasy owners need to give strong consideration to putting Brown into active Fantasy lineups.
Colts safety Sergio Brown (hand), cornerback Josh Gordy (groin), wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) and linebacker Robert Mathis (not injury related) were all cleared to play Week 14 at Cincinnati. All four players were listed as probable.
Colts defensive lineman Aubrayo Franklin (not injury related) and offensive lineman Hugh Thornton (neck), who were listed as probable on Friday's injury report, are active for Week 15 against the Texans.
A nagging shoulder ailment kept Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton out of Thursday practice, though it's likely he was just given the day off to rest it. His status for Sunday at Kansas City will be clearer when the team releases its Friday injury report.
Colts cornerback Greg Toler took a step back Thursday in his quest to return to game action for the first time since Week 7. He did not participate in practice after having returned Wednesday as a full participant. He has been nursing a groin injury for two months.
Cardinals linebacker Karlos Dansby picked up a half-sack in the win over Tennessee, giving him 6 1/2 this season. He made six tackles, five solo, and is up to 111 tackles this season. That puts him 15th in the NFL entering Week 16 at Seattle.
Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald is not practicing Wednesday as he continues to go through the league-mandated concussion protocol. However, Fitzgerald is expected to gain clearance before Sunday's game at Seattle.
Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd, who has been questionable the last couple weeks with an ankle injury, has an ugly Week 16 matchup against the Seahawks, who have allowed the fewest Fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season.
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians revealed Monday safety Rashad Johnson suffered a high ankle sprain during Sunday's overtime win at Tennessee. It is an injury that could keep Johnson from playing Week 16 at Seattle.
Cardinals running back Rashard Mendenhall has five touchdowns in his last five games. He's gotten 17 or more carries in his last three, and has run for 69 or more yards in two of his last three. It's been a late-season surge for the 26-year-old, who has hit double digits in Fantasy points in three of his last four games.
There was good news and bad news on the Carson Palmer injury front Wednesday. The Cardinals quarterback reported his elbow is feeling "much better," but now he's dealing with an ankle injury, according to the team's website. Palmer was limited in practice Wednesday ahead of Sunday's game at Seattle.
