Position Listing
D'Anthony Smith
Defensive tackle D'Anthony Smith has re-signed with the Seahawks, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan.

Smith has played in 10 games over his career, totaling 15 tackles.

Khari Lee
The Texans traded tight end Khari Lee to the Bears on Wednesday, the Bears announced. In exchange for Lee, the Texans will receive a sixth-round draft pick in the 2017 draft.
Vladimir Ducasse
The Bears have signed guard Vladimir Ducasse, according to the team. It is a one-year deal for Ducasse who spent last year with the Vikings.

The 27-year-old is entering his sixth season in the NFL. He started six games last year for the Vikings.

Kyle Long
Bears safety Chris Conte will miss Sunday's game against the Vikings with a back injury. Conte was unable to practice all week. He played 12 games this season, recording 43 tackles and three interceptions. Also out are quarterback Jimmy Clausen (concussion) and kicker Robbie Gould (quad).

Defensive end Jared Allen (ribs), defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff, and cornerback Al Lewis-Jean (hamstring) are all listed a questionable for Sunday.

David Bass (knee), Ego Ferguson (ankle), Kyle Long (hip) and Marquess Wilson (knee) are all listed as probable.

The Bears are 6-point underdogs for Sunday's game.

Matt Forte
Forte (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game in Green Bay.

Forte is expected to be a part of the Bears' offense Thursday for the first time since Week 8, but head coach John Fox hasn't indicated how he'll be used. With Jeremy Langford faring well in his absence, Forte may have a situational role versus anything sustainable, making him a difficult fantasy option to trust in his return.

Knee - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 12 at Green Bay
Willie Young
Young recorded his first sack of the season in Sunday's 18-17 win over the Chiefs.

After an outstanding 10-sack season with the Bears in 2014, Young found himself on the roster bubble through most of training camp with the team transitioning to a 3-4 system that made the longtime down lineman an awkward scheme fit at outside linebacker. As a result, Young had seen limited snaps through the Bears' first four games while assuming a backup role, but he gradually seems to be getting a little more comfortable. Although it appears Lamarr Houston and Sam Acho will serve as the primary replacement for the recently-traded Jared Allen, Young will continue to rotate in off the bench in pass-rushing situations.

Antone Smith
Smith is inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Smith was first added to the Bears' roster this week after Jacquizz Rodgers (arm) landed on IR, so it's no surprise he'll sit out Sunday as he looks to familiarize himself with the playbook. He'll have a greater chance to crack the Bears' active lineup in the weeks to come.

Danny Mason
No Updates
Barrett Jones
As the Rams start the final week of OTAs, three players are still battling in a wide-open race to be starting center. 

Tim Barnes, Barrett Jones and Demetrius Rhaney are vying for the job, and the competition will liekly last far into training camp. 

"We’re not going to make a decision real early,” coach Jeff Fisher said, per StLToday.com. “We’ll let them all play. We’re rotating them. They’re all getting opportunities to work with (QBNick Foles), so he’s familiar, not only with the exchanges, but also the communication. We’ll make that decision when somebody shows us he’s earned the job."

Jermon Bushrod
Bears offensive tackle Jermon Bushrod (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Already facing the possibility of playing without QB Jay Cutler and WR Alshon Jeffery -- both questionable with hamstring injuries -- for a second straight week, the Bears will now be missing their starting left tackle. That's never a good thing, but it's especially worrisome when Khalil Mack is on the other team. Mack normally moves all over the place, but Oakland may have him spend more time on the offense's left side to test out replacement LT Charles Leno.

Jarvis Jenkins
Defensive end Jarvis Jenkins had a huge game for the Bears in Sunday's 26-0 loss to the Seahawks, finishing with a career-high 10 tackles and two sacks.

Jenkins played 56 of 57 total snaps and submitted arguably the best performance of his career. As a 3-4 defensive end, Jenkins hadn't shown much pass-rushing ability in the past, as he only collected two sacks during his previous 44 games with the Redskins. However, he showed plenty of explosiveness from the interior line Sunday, nearly reeling in a third sack on the afternoon before Russell Wilson evaded the rush.

Given his career track record, Jenkins probably can't be counted on to build on this performance, but it at least solidified him into a starting role with Jeremiah Ratliff's pending return from a suspension Week 4.

Chest - Full practice. Probable for Week 12 at Green Bay
Jalen Saunders
Saunders was suspended four games by the NFL on Tuesday for violating an undisclosed league policy, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

Saunders is currently on Chicago's practice squad and has been unable to see time on the field this season after beginning the year with New England. The 23-year-old has made a total of nine outings since leaving Oklahoma and turning pro, but his future outlook as a viable NFL wideout looks bleak, especially after Tuesday's suspension.

Mitch Unrein
The Chargers announced Wednesday that they have signed defensive lineman Mitch Unrein to a two-year deal. The contract is worth $1.9 million.

Unrein visited the team and now he has signed a contract to provide depth along the defensive line. The 27-year-old has 49 total tackles in his career.

Martin Wallace
The Browns claimed two more players off waivers, wideout LaRon Byrd from the Cowboys and offensive lineman Caylin Hauptmann from the Seahawks. In addition, Cleveland waived offensive linemen Karim Barton and Martin Wallace and wideout Charles Johnson.
Patrick Omameh
Among the Buccaneers inactives for Week 16 against the Rams, three are sidelined as a result of injuries. Offensive lineman Carl Nicks (foot), defensive lineman Da'Quan Bowers (knee) and defensive back Mark Barron (hamstring) headline the team's inactive list.

Additionally, linebacker Danny Lansanah, defensive lineman Matthew Masifilo , running back Lonnie Pryor and offensive lineman Patrick Omameh are all out of uniform Sunday.  

Eddie Royal
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.

Knee - Did not practice. Questionable for Week 12 at Green Bay
Jason Weaver
The Bears announced Monday they have signed guard Lucas Nix to a one-year contract and waived injured guard Jason Weaver, per a team release. 

Nix played in 15 games with the Raiders, but has not appeared in one since 2013, when he made 10 starts. 

Matt Slauson
The Bears placed guard Matt Slauson on injured reserve Saturday and promoted tight end Blake Annen to the active roster.

Slauson tore a pectoral muscle a few weeks ago and was ruled out for the season in late October. The move opened up a roster spot for Annen, who may be active Sunday if Martellus Bennett (rib, questionable) is unable to go.

Lamarr Houston
New Bears coach John Fox said he'll play Lamarr Houston at outside linebacker, not defensive end, in the team's base 3-4 defense, reports the Chicago Tribune. Houston, 27, is coming back from a torn ACL he suffered against the Patriots while celebrating a sack in a Week 8 loss.

Houston has 17 sacks in his five-year career.

Charles Leno
The Bears have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's season finale against Minnesota: Jimmy Clausen (concussion), Robbie Gould (right quadriceps), Al Louis-Jean (hamstring), Chris Conte (back), Charles Leno, Austen Lane and Brandon Dunn.
Sherrick McManis
McManis made a season-high eight stops in the Bears' 37-34 loss to the Lions on Sunday.

Despite not working as one of the Bears' starting cornerbacks, McManis still saw the field plenty often, as the Lions took 76 offensive snaps in the overtime thriller. The tackle output Sunday represents nearly half of McManis' total stops (17) for the season.

Demontre Hurst
The Bears announced they've reached a two-year extension with cornerback and special teams player Demontre Hurst

Hurst recorded 35 tackles and one interception in 2014. 

“It’s a blessing to be where I started and get to be with a different set of coaches but still with the same teammates," Hurst said. "I’m just happy to be back with the guys. They pretty much helped me throughout the season last year to keep growing with them.”

Marquess Wilson
Wilson (groin) practiced in full Tuesday, the Bears' official site reports.

Estimated as a limited participant in Monday's walkthrough session, Wilson has cleared himself for active status in Week 12 due to his ability to take on a full allotment of reps Tuesday. His eventual workload Thursday at Green Bay will depend on whether Alshon Jeffery (groin) is able to take the field, but the expected return of Matt Forte (knee) may have already sealed Wilson's fate. Nevertheless, Wilson is coming off one of his most productive outings of the season, as he tallied four receptions of more than 20 yards en route to 102 yards overall on seven targets.

Groin - Full practice. Probable for Week 12 at Green Bay
Ego Ferguson
Ferguson has been handed a four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago reports.

After notching three tackles in four games, Ferguson was placed on season-ending injured reserve in October due to a nagging knee injury. Thus, his ban won't kick in until he's healthy enough to take the field during the 2016 campaign.

Knee - IR. Out for season
John Timu
No Updates
Robbie Gould
Gould (illness) was removed from the injury report ahead of Sunday's game in St. Louis.

Gould missed Wednesday's practice but returned as a full participant Thursday. He'll be fine for Sunday's unfavorable matchup in St. Louis.

Jonathan Anderson
No Updates
Cornelius Washington
A quad injury caused the Bears to place defensive lineman Cornelius Washington on injured reserve, the team announced Monday. With an open roster spot, the team re-signed linebacker Sam Acho.
Quad - IR. Out for season
Ka'Deem Carey
Carey suffered a concussion during Sunday's game against the Broncos, ESPN.com reports.

Carey rushed nine times for a team-high 32 yards before leaving with the head injury suffered on a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit by Broncos safety T.J. Ward. Carey was backing up Jeremy Langford on Sunday, as Matt Forte was out with a knee injury, but Forte may be able to return in Week 12 against the Packers, leaving Carey with limited fantasy upside even if he completes the league's concussion protocol quickly.

Head - Did not practice. Questionable for Week 12 at Green Bay
Will Sutton
Bears defensive end Will Sutton (biceps) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Sutton was expected to slide back to a bench role with Jeremiah Ratliff (ankle) returning from a three-game suspension, but both players are listed as questionable for Sunday, after logging limited practices throughout the week. If both suit up, Ratliff will probably get the start and play more snaps. Neither warrants IDP consideration.

Justin Worley
No Updates
Paul Lasike
No Updates
Will Montgomery
Bears center Will Montgomery suffered a fractured left tibia in Sunday's win over the Raiders and has been placed on season-ending injured reserve, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Montgomery, who signed a one-year contract with the Bears this offseason due in large part with his familiarity with coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Adam Gase from his days in Denver, started the first four games at center for the Bears.

The team is expected to replace him in the lineup with rookie Hroniss Grasu, who has been inactive for all four games, or move left guard Matt Slauson over to center.

LaRoy Reynolds
Reynolds will enter the starting lineup Sunday against the Lions, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Shea McClellin is set to miss his first game of the season due to a knee injury, paving the way for Reynolds to pick up his first extended snaps of the season. While his placement at middle linebacker should lend itself to plenty of tackle opportunities, Reynolds will need to make good on that production over multiple games before those in IDP leagues look to him for help.

Knee - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 12 at Green Bay
Ziggy Hood
Hood signed with the Bears on Thursday, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Hood's signing coincides with the release of veteran defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff, who was dismissed from the team following a heated exchange with GM Ryan Pace outside of the Bears' practice facility Wednesday. A former first-round pick in 2009, Hood was placed on injured reserve by the Jaguars to open the season due to a foot ailment, but was released earlier this week. Given that he's now listed on the Bears' 53-man roster, Hood has presumably recovered from the injury and should be available in a backup capacity for the team's next game Nov. 1 against the Vikings.

Foot - IR. Out for season
Jay Cutler
Cutler completed 18 of 32 passes for 265 yards and an interception Sunday against the Broncos. He also rushed three times for 29 yards and lost a fumble.

Playing without starting running back Matt Forte (knee) and starting wideouts Alshon Jeffery (groin) and Eddie Royal (knee), Cutler connected with seven different receivers, as Marquess Wilson led the way with four catches on seven targets for 102 yards. It was the first time all season that Cutler failed to throw a touchdown pass and it came after he threw five in the last two games. Forte and Jeffery could return next week, though they'll have a tall task against the Packers at Lambeau Field.

Alshon Jeffery
Jeffery (groin/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Thursday's contest at Green Bay.

On Tuesday, Jeffery indicated his hope that he'll return from a one-game absence, but the Bears didn't tip their hand this week, as he turned in limited practices each day. Expect the team's training staff to test out his injuries in a pregame workout, at which point a decision will come down with the release of their inactive list.

Groin - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 12 at Green Bay
Nathan Palmer
The Broncos declared these players inactive for Sunday night's game against the Colts: running back Ronnie Hillman, wideout Nathan Palmer, defensive back Kayvon Webster, linebacker Danny Trevathan (leg), offensive linemen Michael Schofield and Ben Garland and defensive lineman Mitch Unrein.
Kyle Fuller
Fuller made a season-high eight tackles in Sunday's win over the Lions.

The high tackle total wasn't exactly indicative of a good performance from Fuller, though he nearly came away with a huge turnover. With the Lions at the Bears' two-yard line late in the second quarter, Fuller forced a fumble on a Golden Tate catch, but the officials ruled Tate crossed the goal line before losing the ball. In any case, it went down as a touchdown against Fuller, an occurrence that has become all too common during his young career. He'll need to show improvement in locking down opposing wideouts if he hopes to convince coach John Fox he's a capable franchise cornerback.

Harold Jones-Quartey
Jones-Quartey will make a second straight start at safety in Sunday's game against the Lions, Bob LeGere of the Daily Herald reports.

Antrel Rolle remains sidelined with an ankle injury, allowing the undrafted rookie to see additional defensive snaps. Jones-Quartey finished with a modest four tackles in the Week 5 win over the Chiefs, and he'll probably need to double that output over a span of multiple weeks before he gains much traction as an IDP option.

Gannon Sinclair
The Cardinals relased punter Dave Zastudil, LB Lorenzo Alexander, ILB Glenn Carson, G Nate Isles, ILB Edwin Jackson, ILB Andrae Kirk, S Shaq Richardson, TE Gannon Sinclair, WR Ryan Spadola and S Darren Woodard on Monday.

They also waived/injured wide receiver Travis Harvey (hamstring), who will be placed on injured reserve if he clears waivers.

Adrian Amos
Amos recorded five tackles in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

It's been a rather nondescript rookie season at the midway point for Amos. He's recorded no more than five tackles in any of his eight games, and has yet to produce a turnover, despite starting every contest.

Antrel Rolle
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.

Knee - Did not practice. Questionable for Week 12 at Green Bay
Tayo Fabuluje
What was reported is now official - the Bears have announced that they have signed three of their 2015 draft picks to four-year contracts.

Included is fourth-rounder Jeremy Langford, a running back who rushed for 1,522 yards and 22 touchdowns for Michigan State last season. Safety and fifth-rounder Adrian Amos, as well as 353-pound offensive tackle and sixth-rounder Tayo Fabuluje are also in the fold.

David Fales
Fales was promoted from the Bears' practice squad to the active roster on Monday, NFL Network's James Palmer reports.

Fales was promoted to the active roster earlier this season when Jay Cutler was injured. This time around, Fales' activation is the result of his team's decision to move on from backup quarterback Jimmy Clausen. Though highly unproven, Fales probably can't be any worse than his former teammate.

Sherrod Martin
Safety Sherrod Martin signed a one-year contract with the Bears on Tuesday, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Martin, who was cut by the Bears in training camp, re-signed with the team after Antrel Rolle suffered a foot injury in Sunday's win over the Raiders. If Rolle is unavailable for Week 5, Martin or backup Harold Jones-Quartey could see the start at strong safety.

Neck - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 12 at Green Bay
Zach Miller
Miller caught all five of his targets for 107 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's game against the Rams.

Miller continued his ascent Sunday after last week's game-winning catch, finishing second on the Bears in targets and yards in addition to the two scores. With a lack of depth at receiver for Chicago, Miller could continue to play a regular role, although this type of production should not be expected every week. Week 11 presents a tough home matchup against the Broncos and their dominant defensive unit.

Cameron Meredith
Meredith (ankle) is listed as active Monday in San Diego.

Meredith is on the periphery of the passing attack in Chicago, but the absence of Eddie Royal (knee) could result in his first snaps since Week 6. On the season, Meredith has managed eight catches (on 11 targets) for 95 yards in five appearances.

Marc Mariani
Mariani made his first catch of the season in Sunday's loss to the Vikings, gaining 19 yards on the reception.

Mariani saw two targets in the game, bringing his total in the department up to six for the season. Although Eddie Royal (knee) seems unlikely to play in the Week 9 tilt with the Chargers, Mariani isn't expected to see a dramatic increase in offensive snaps as a result. His primary utility will continue to come in the return game.

Hroniss Grasu
No Updates
Chris Prosinski
The Eagles have signed strong safety Chris Prosinski to a two-year contract worth $1,048 million, per ESPN, which is further reporting that none of it is guaranteed.

Prosinski was picked up by Philadelphia recently after losing his spot with Jacksonville in late September. He played in three games early this year before losing time to an elbow/triceps strain.

Jacquizz Rodgers
Rodgers has been placed on the Bears' injured reserve list after suffering a fractured arm in Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Rodgers' broken right arm will end his season after just five games and likely result in rookie Jeremy Langford seeing even more snaps behind starter Matt Forte at running back. While Ka'Deem is in the mix as well, Chicago also signed free agent Antone Smith on Monday to replace Rodgers going forward.

Arm - IR. Out for season
Lamin Barrow
The Bears elevated linebacker Lamin Barrow from the practice squad and terminated the contract of linebacker Sam Acho, the team announced.
Josh Bellamy
Bellamy got the start Sunday against the Broncos and finished with four catches on five targets for 57 yards.

With Alshon Jeffery (groin) and Eddie Royal (knee) both sidelined, Bellamy saw a big increase in snaps and looks, as he had been targeted just once in the previous four games combined. Jeffery was questionable heading into the game and if he's able to return in Week 12 against the Packers, Bellamy will likely go back to his minimal role.

Christian Jones
Jones tallied a season-high nine tackles and defended a pass in Sunday's win over the Lions.

It was one of Jones' more active efforts of the season, but he likely needs to provide double-digits stops over a span of multiple weeks before fantasy players will feel comfortable trusting him as an IDP.

Ryan Mundy
As anticipated, Bears safety Ryan Mundy has been given the thumbs-up to play in Week 4 against the Packers. He practiced in full the last two days in overcoming a shoulder problem.

Undisclosed - IR. Out for season
Senorise Perry
The Bears placed running back Senorise Perry on injured reserve Tuesday to reach the 75-man roster limit. He is in his second season out of Louisville.
Undisclosed - IR. Out for season
Sam Acho
Acho started Sunday's game against the Vikings and finished with four tackles in 55 snaps, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Meanwhile, last season's holdovers from the Marc Trestman regime, Willie Young and Lamarr Houston, finished with seven and four snaps, respectively at outside linebacker. It appears neither of those players are deemed appropriate fits for defensive coordinator Vic Fangio's 3-4 scheme, so look for Acho to continue to dominate the snaps at the linebacker spot opposite Pernell McPhee.

Jacoby Glenn
No Updates
Jeremy Langford
Langford rushed 13 times for 25 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes on six targets for 17 receiving yards during Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

Starting again in place of the injured Matt Forte (knee), Langford really struggled against one of the league's best defenses, though he was able to punch in a two-yard touchdown with 24 seconds left to bring the Bears within two (he was stopped on the two-point conversion attempt on a similar run). Forte is reportedly getting close to returning, and when he does Langford will likely be relegated to his old backup duties despite scoring three touchdowns in the last two games.

Nick Becton
The Saints declared defensive back Corey White, wideout Seantavius Jones, defensive back Stanley Jean-Baptiste, linebacker Moise Fokou, nose tackle Lawrence Virgil, offensive tackle Nick Becton and linebacker Ronald Powell inactive for Monday's game at Chicago.

It's the first time all season White has been inactive. He's a healthy scratch despite starting nine games and racking up 52 tackles, two interceptions, a forced fumble and a sack.

Kevin White
The Bears opened the 21-day practice window for White (leg) on Tuesday, ESPN.com reports

White has spent all season recovering from offseason shin surgery, and he has finally recovered to the point where he can begin working on the side during practice. His return to the practice field does not necessarily ensure he will play this season, but the Bears will have three weeks to decide whether to activate him from the PUP list or place him on injured reserve.

Shin - PUP. Out indefinitely
Bruce Gaston
The following players have been deemed inactive for the Packers in Sunday's NFC Championship Game: DuJuan Harris, Demetri Goodson, Carl Bradford, Garth Gerhart, Justin Perillo, Jeff Janis and Bruce Gatson.

The Packers are currently 8-point underdogs against the Seahawks Sunday.

Tracy Porter
Porter (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Porter was able to log limited practices on Thursday and Friday to put himself on course to play Sunday. The veteran continues to work as a starting corner for the Bears, but has yet to generate any interceptions or produce more than four tackles in any of his six games this season.

Eddie Goldman
Goldman will enter the starting lineup Sunday against the Lions, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Ego Ferguson's season-ending knee injury will open the door for Goldman to see extended snaps at nose tackle, while Jeremiah Ratliff moves over to defensive end in the Bears' 3-4 scheme. Since most of his duties will involve clogging running lanes to set up tackle opportunities for others, Goldman isn't expected to attain much fantasy value, even if he excels upon gaining a full-time role.

Bryce Callahan
No Updates
Martellus Bennett
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.

Ribs - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 12 at Green Bay
Pat O'Donnell
Bears kicker Robbie Gould missed Tuesday's practice due to quad soreness, coach Marc Trestman told reporters. Trestman said the team is working on a contingency plan in case Gould can't play Thursday against the Cowboys.

Punter Pat O'Donnell did some placekicking Tuesday, reports the Chicago Tribune.

Thomas Gafford
The Bears signed long snapper Thomas Gafford to a one-year contract on Wednesday, the organization announced. 

Gafford spent the previous seven games and has appeared in 105 consecutive games. 

Pernell McPhee
McPhee (knee) is active Sunday against the Broncos.

McPhee (knee), who did not play in Week 10, returned to practice on a limited basis Friday, which was apparently enough to get him back on the field. He has three sacks in his last four games.

Knee - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 12 at Green Bay
Alan Ball
Ball (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

The groin injury limited Ball throughout practice this week, but it was likely the case where the Bears just wanted to preserve his health in advance of the Week 5 tilt. Ball saw his snap count drop significantly a week ago, as it appears Tracy Porter has now passed him up on the depth chart and taken his starting role.

Shea McClellin
McClellin (knee) is active Sunday against the Broncos.

McClellin missed three games before returning last weekend, finishing that game with eight tackles, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery, and he'll now line up against a Broncos' offense with Brock Osweiler under center.

Deonte Thompson
The Bills have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's Week 16 game against the Raiders: running back Bryce Brown, cornerback Ross Cockrell, linebackers Larry Dean and Randell Johnson, tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, wide receiver Deonte Thompson and tight end Chris Gragg (knee).

The only player on the inactive list dealing with an injury is reserve tight end Gragg, who was listed as probable, leaving the Bills as one of the healthier teams in the league heading into Week 16. They are a 6 1/2-point favorite in Sunday's road matchup with the Raiders.
