Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) said he's highly unlikely to play in Week 13 Sunday, Nov. 30.
Huddle Up: Fitz is two weeks removed from what is being reported as a Grade 2 MCL sprain, so his unavailability hardly comes as a surprise. The Cards will lean on Michael Floyd and John Brown to pick up the passing game slack this week.
Philadelphia Eagles K Cody Parkey has made all nine of his field goals in the past two games, including four Thursday, Nov. 27 against the Dallas Cowboys. The nine field goals are a team record.
Huddle Up: The Philly offense continues to roll, and Parkey is more than just along for the ride. He's become a solid, reliable fantasy kicking option.
Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has shown signs of regression during his second season on the job, so the team is holding off talks about a new contract or extension. The willingness to give Wilson a new deal will depend on how far Seattle gets in the postseason.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks would be lost without Wilson, especially if the plan is to kick Marshawn Lynch to the curb. The club cleared more than enough cap space by getting out from under the Percy Harvin deal, so look for them to lock up Wilson sooner rather than later--or regret dragging their feet for doing so.
Michael Crabtree - WR - San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (ribs) left the team's game with a rib injury Thursday, Nov. 27, but he was able to return after being examined by trainers.
Huddle Up: Crabtree finished with only 3 catches for 10 years on a brutal offensive night for the Niners (164 total yards) and hopefully you didn't start him against a surging Seattle D that's starting to resemble last season's dominant unit following back-to-back 19-3 division wins.
LeSean McCoy - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy ran for a season-high 159 yards and a score on 25 carries in a 33-10 victory over the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: That's back-to-back 100-yard games and three outings in the last four with a TD for Shady, who's rounding into form at the perfect time for his fantasy owners.
Julius Thomas - TE - Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: Another practice, same status for Thomas is trying to make it back after missing Week 11. See if Friday's practice report is any more illuminating.
The Seattle Seahawks have declared TE Cooper Helfet, LB Allen Bradford, , CB Jeremy Lane, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, C Max Unger, TE Rashaun Allen, DL Travian Robertson inactive for Week 13.
Huddle Up: In case you missed it, Helfet -- Seattle's most productive TE of late -- will miss the Thanksgiving nightcap with an ankle injury. Luke Willson and Tony Moeaki will handle the TE duties against the Niners.
Charles Sims - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: Sims has been a partial participant in both practices this week after getting only eight touches for 33 yards last week in Chicago. Steer clear of the T.B. RBs if at all possible.
Arian Foster - RB - Houston Texans
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 27. Coach Bill O'Brien, though, told ESPN he expects Foster to play Week 13 against the Titans.
Huddle Up: Foster has missed the last two games and there's even a possibility his status might not boil down to a game-time decision.
Jordan Cameron - TE - Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: The Browns have said they expect the TE to play Sunday in Buffalo but you would've thought he would have had a full practice by now. See if that happens Friday.
Jerick McKinnon - RB - Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: McKinnon has missed both of the Vikes' practices this week but did play through the issue last week. We should gain more clarity after Friday's practice.
Ryan Mathews - RB - San Diego Chargers
San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: The shoulder injury Mathews suffered Sunday doesn't look like it'll be an issue at all as the RB was a full-practice participant for the second straight day. Be more concerned about the looming matchup against the rugged Ravens' run defense.
Latavius Murray - RB - Oakland Raiders
Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: The outlook remains positive for Murray, but he still has one more step to pass in the concussion protocol. That decision likely will come Friday.
Khiry Robinson - RB - New Orleans Saints
New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: Robinson remains out with an injury that's developed into a quite an issue as he's on the verge of missing a sixth straight game. Meanwhile, the team's other three backs practiced Thursday, leaving Robinson as the forgotten man.
Robert Woods - WR - Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills WR Robert Woods (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: Woods was limited a second straight day, but there's no indication that his Week 12 in danger as he tries to follow up on his best fantasy outing (9-118-1) of the season.
Jordan Reed - TE - Washington Redskins
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: Reed, who sat out Week 11, was limited for the second straight day and there's a cautious optimism he might be able to give it a go Sunday in Indy. Friday's practice report should be a little more telling.
Roddy White - WR - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: White missed a second straight day of practice, but the Falcons are confident he'll be able to get in some work Friday and play Sunday against the Cards.
Dwayne Allen - TE - Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: Allen still hasn't practiced since injuring his ankle in Week 11, and will likely need to get in some practice work Friday if he's to avoid missing a second straight game.
Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: Fitz's Week 12 status remains very much up in the air as he tries to avoid missing a second straight game. Stay tuned, but this appears headed toward another game-time decision.
Cecil Shorts - WR - Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (illness) returned to practice, Thursday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: Sounds like just a one-day bug for Shorts, who should be fine for Sunday's game against the Giants.
