  • Logan Thomas TE | BUF

    Bills' Logan Thomas: Low production

    Thomas caught his only target for one yard during Sunday's win over the Jets while seeing action on 41 percent of the offensive snaps. He also completed a 15-yard pass on a fake punt.

    The trick play was a thing of beauty and certainly contributed to the big win, but other than that Thomas didn't have much production. Neither he nor Jason Croom (no catches) took advantage of starter Charles Clay being shelved with a hamstring injury, as the Bills simply spread Clay's usual modest targets elsewhere in the offense. The Bills are taking a good look at many of their younger players in what's turned out to be a rebuilding season, so Thomas will continue to have a small role even if Clay returns to action following the team's Week 11 bye. That role won't yield more than a few sprinkled catches, however.

  • Robert Alford CB | ATL

    Falcons' Robert Alford: Struggling in coverage

    Alford collected five tackles during Sunday's 28-16 loss to the Browns.

    The sixth-year defensive back has dealt with an ankle injury for the past two weeks, but his level of play overall this season has been well below par. Alford owns a season-long performance grade of 48.5 from Pro Football Focus, a career low for him, and easily the worst of any of the Falcons' top four cornerbacks. After Atlanta got diced up by Baker Mayfield on Sunday (85 percent completion rate, three passing touchdowns), Alford and the Falcons secondary look to get back on track in Week 11 facing Dak Prescott and the Cowboys' bottom five pass offense (194 yards per game).

  • Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins: Should play through wrist issue

    Jenkins was a full participant at Wednesday's practice despite a wrist injury, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Jenkins was a late addition to the injury report but his full participation should quell any major concerns. The 30-year-old was sporting a wrap/light cast on his right wrist Wednesday but the injury shouldn't affect his availability for Sunday's game at New Orleans.

  • Redskins' Trent Williams: Won't play Week 11

    Williams (thumb) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, John Keim of reports.

    Williams underwent thumb surgery at the start of November and will miss his third consecutive game. Ty Nsekhe is set for another start at left tackle, assuming he is able to play through his ankle injury.

  • Bengals' Davontae Harris: Cleared to practice

    Harris (knee) was designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, opening a 21-day window for the Bengals to activate him to the 53-man roster.

    Harris will be able to practice with the team for three weeks without being counted against the roster limit, during which time the Bengals will decide whether to return him to the 53-man roster or allow him to remain on IR for the rest of the season. The rookie was initially placed on IR on Sept. 3, and will serve a depth role in Cincinnati's secondary if he returns to the active roster.

  • Kaleb Eulls DT | JAC

    Kaleb Eulls: Waived off injured reserve

    Eulls (undisclosed) was waived off injured reserve by the Jaguars on Tuesday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Eulls signed with the Jaguars in late July and sustained the undisclosed injury shortly thereafter, leading to him being waived with an injury designation. The 27-year-old has since been on injury reserve but will now have the chance to latch on elsewhere, assuming he is able to play.

  • Phil Dawson K | ARI

    Cardinals' Phil Dawson: Absent from practice Wednesday

    Dawson missed Wednesday's practice with a right hip injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Since picking up the issue during Week 8 prep, Dawson has hit all three point-after tries and his sole field-goal attempt (a 31-yarder) across two games. Although he's proved his ability to play with a compromised hip, his production has been lacking (2.9 points per game) in support of the Cardinals' 31st-ranked scoring offense (13.8 points per game).

  • Packers' Bashaud Breeland: Listed as questionable

    Breeland (groin) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Seahawks.

    Breeland suffered a groin injury during a Week 10 win over the Dolphins, and his status for Thursday Night Football remains uncertain. With Kevin King (hamstring) and Kentrell Brice (ankle) both ruled out for Thursday's contest, Breeland's availability would be a notable boost for Green Bay's secondary, which faces a difficult matchup against Russell Wilson and Seattle's air attack.

  • Darian Stewart SS | DEN

    Broncos' Darian Stewart: Returns as full practice participant

    Stewart (neck) was a full participant at practice Wednesday, Zac Stevens of reports.

    Stewart missed the last two games with the neck injury that he sustained against the Cardinals on Oct. 18, but seems primed for a return following the Broncos' Week 10 bye. The 30-year-old should take up his usual starting role at strong safety Sunday against the Chargers.

  • Chad Williams WR | ARI

    Cardinals' Chad Williams: Remains sidelined at practice

    Williams (ankle) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Williams hasn't practiced since the Cardinals embarked on a Week 9 bye due to an ankle injury. Until he fits in some activity on the practice field, the second-year wideout doesn't seem like a great candidate to suit up on gameday. In his place this past Sunday at Kansas City, Trent Sherfield (39 of 73 snaps on offense) surprisingly slotted in as the No. 3 wide receiver behind Larry Fitzgerald (70) and Christian Kirk (65). Meanwhile, J.J. Nelson earned 20 offensive snaps and Kendall Wright was inactive.
