Kellen Moore will be promoted from the practice squad to serve as Matt Cassel's backup for the remainder of the season, the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports.
The former Boise St. standout has yet to take a regular season snap in the NFL, but Moore could see some work if and when the Dallas Cowboys are officially eliminated from playoff contention in the weak NFC East and begin looking ahead to 2016.
Crockett Gillmore caught three passes (on four targets) for 20 yards in Monday night's win over the Browns.
Gillmore didn't get much going Monday night with promoted backup Matt Schaub leading the Baltimore Ravens ' offense. In fact, Gillmore's 20 receiving yards marked his second-lowest tally of the season. Nonetheless, Gillmore had a 100-yard performance and two touchdowns over his three games prior to Monday, so he'll look to bounce back in Week 13 against the Dolphins.
Kosta Koufos returned to a bench role for Monday's 112-98 win over the Mavericks, finishing with no points (0-3 FG, 0-4 FT), five rebounds, and an assist over 12 minutes.
After averaging 29.3 minutes per game over the Sacramento Kings ' previous three contests, Koufos unsurprisingly saw his usage decline with the return of DeMarcus Cousins (back) on Monday. Cousins didn't seem to be facing any restrictions in the contest and finished with 38 minutes, leaving precious little time left over for the likes of Koufos and Willie Cauley-Stein (12 minutes). The latter two players will continue to share the frontcourt spot next to Cousins, but coach George Karl has also shown an inclination for using Rudy Gay at power forward while Cousins slots in at center, which could limit Koufos' playing time on any given night. As a result, Koufos doesn't really offer much value at present outside of deeper formats.
Josh McCown (collarbone) may miss the rest of the season, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
The Cleveland Browns haven't provided any confirmation, but a broken collarbone is the most likely injury. If McCown can't play again this season, the team would then have to decide between Austin Davis and Johnny Manziel at quarterback, just one week after benching the latter for off-field reasons. Davis replaced McCown in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Ravens, engineering a game-tying touchdown drive but also making a couple of key mistakes. There should be another update available at some point Tuesday.
Kamar Aiken caught six passes (on 10 targets) for 80 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's win over the Browns.
Aiken led the Baltimore Ravens in all receiving categories Monday, which marked his second straight game with a red zone touchdown. While that's surely a promising development for Baltimore's make-shift No. 1 wideout, Aiken's rapport with promoted backup quarterback Matt Schaub also helps his case looking ahead. Over his past four games, Aiken has accumulated 24 catches on 38 targets, evidencing his consistent role in the Ravens' injury-ravaged offense.
