While Pryor played quarterback in the past, he is presumably being brought in for wide receiver depth with a couple Browns receivers banged up, and not to help at the quarterback position despite the injury to starter Josh McCown (collarbone).
Johnson took a step back Tuesday after getting in a limited session Monday, but he was likely just being given the day off to rest, as the report notes he will likely be able to play Thursday despite the injury. The Lions will release an official update on Johnson's status following Tuesday's practice.
Herron was with the Colts until he was released in September. He then signed with Buffalo until he was released by the Bills in November. He re-signed with the Colts last week and is now the No. 2 running back. It's possible he could split any backup carries with Zurlon Tipton however.
Williams will miss the season due to a surgical procedure on his knee, so the Bills decided to place him on injured reserve to open up a roster spot, which was filled by fellow defensive tackle T.J. Barnes. It remains to be seen if Williams will play for the Bills again next season, as the team could opt to cut him to save some cap space.
Head coach Rex Ryan is hopeful that Williams will be able to play this week, but it appears he is either still dealing with soreness in his arm, or is being sent on the precautionary route in his recovery. Williams' participation, or lack thereof, in practice over the next few days figures to ultimately determine whether he will be able to play in Week 13.
Lockett had three targets, which is about par for him. With Jimmy Graham out for the season, there's a chance Lockett sees a couple more targets per game, but probably not enough to make a fantasy difference. And it's not like he and Graham were running the same routes. Lockett's always a deep threat, but it's not something to count on each week.
Roethlisberger's comments alone don't officially remove him from the league's concussion protocol, but they do provide optimism that he will be able to start like he usually does Sunday against Colts. It's not yet clear if Roethlisberger will practice Wednesday, but as long as he does at some point this week he figures to suit up in Week 13.
Graham was signed to fill in for the injured Matt Bryant, and he did his job Sunday. It's uncertain how long Bryant may be sidelined with the quadriceps injury, so Graham will continue to handle the kicking duties for the foreseeable future.
Hardy has caught nine balls for a total of 66 yards in four games this season. He's still getting acclimated with the system, but it's hard to argue that his rookie season has been anything but a disappointment.
He was the only Falcon to find the endzone on the day, but he still trailed Julio Jones, Roddy White and Jacob Tamme in targets. He's better suited for deeper leagues.
