Delanie Walker - TE - Tennessee Titans
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (concussion) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: Things are looking up for Walker after missed the Week 11 Monday night loss to the Steelers. He was also scheduled to visit a doctor Thursday, so expect the official word on his status to come out Friday at the latest.
Owen Daniels - TE - Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (non-injury) is taking the day off practice Thursday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: No worries for the TE who will be good to go for the Ravens on Monday night coming off a bye week.
Alshon Jeffery - WR - Chicago Bears
Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: The Bears' leading receiver made some definite strides after sitting out Wednesday, and we'll see if the momentum carries over into Friday.
Lavonte David - LB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Lavonte David (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 20. CB Alterraun Verner (hamstring) was limited.
Huddle Up: Definite IDP league alert here as David, the Bucs' leading tackler, sat out entirely Thursday after getting in limited work Wednesday. Friday will be an important day.
Pierre Thomas - RB - New Orleans Saints
New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 20. Thomas has missed the last four games, but he said there's a chance that he plays in Week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday, Nov. 24.
Huddle Up: The Saints could use a timely return by Thomas as fellow RBs Khiry Robinson (forearm) and Travaris Cadet (hamstring) missed practice for a second straight day Thursday.
Julian Edelman - WR - New England Patriots
New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (thigh) was limited again in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: Something to definitely monitor as the Pats' receptions leader is a question mark after getting injured late in the team's win Sunday night.
Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (non-injury related) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: It might turn out to be nothing, but there's been no immediate reason given for the absence. All in all, it's rather strange considering it was to be the WR's second practice after returning from suspension.
Arian Foster - RB - Houston Texans
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 20, after being limited the previous day.
Huddle Up: It's never usually good when a player's status trends the wrong direction during a week, but see if Foster can get back on the field Friday.
Trent Richardson - RB - Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: T-Rich should be fine -- the Colts certainly need him to be -- after he sat out Wednesday with a reported illness.
Jerick McKinnon - RB - Cleveland Browns
Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (back) will retain the lead-back role, even after the team claimed RB Ben Tate off waivers from the Cleveland Browns Wednesday, Nov. 19, according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. Turner said Tate was brought in for insurance because both McKinnon and RB Matt Asiata (concussion) were dealing with injuries this week. McKinnon said he will be ready for Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers. However, Asiata's status is in doubt. "We're excited about Jerick and what he's done, and I see him as our running back,' Turner said. "He's been limited in practice last week and couldn't practice (Wednesday) So you got to protect yourself, obviously with Matt not being able to practice (Wednesday) and in doubt as to whether he'll play or not.'
Huddle Up: The lead-back designation is one thing, but McKinnon's fantasy owners would like to see Turner and the Vikes back that up with more touches as the rookie has been averaging only 13.4 per outing over the last seven games.
Steven Jackson - RB - Atlanta Falcons
Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson was out of practice with an illness Thursday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: Perhaps it's the same bug which has sidelined Julio Jones the past 2 days, but both should be good to go for Sunday's home date with the Browns.
Dwayne Allen - TE - Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) missed his second straight day of practice Thursday, Nov. 20, and The Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer would bet on Allen sitting out this weekend against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: It's most definitely looking like Coby Fleener time Sunday against the Jags. Fleener had a career-high 144 receiving yards on seven catches in the Week 11 loss to the Pats.
Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was not participating during the media-access portion of practice Thursday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: That two straight missed practices for Fitz. See what transpires Friday, but it has the look of a game-time decision Sunday afternoon in Seattle.
Fred Jackson - RB - Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson said he believes the team is at a disadvantage for its Week 12 game against the New York Jets because the snow in the Buffalo area has prevented the team from practicing. Jackson said the players are using their iPads to study the game plan for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Yeah, we'd say being unable to practice is certainly a setback. The new date -- likely Monday -- and location for the contest should be announced soon with Ralph Wilson Stadium and the Buffalo area blanketed by ongoing snowfall.
Giovani Bernard - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (clavicle, hip) is fully participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: Don't look now, but that's now two straight days of workouts for Bernard, who's missed the last three games. Nothing's official yet, but start tinkering with idea of having Bernard available Sunday.
Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Denver Broncos
Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) is able to exercise as part of his concussion protocol. He missed a second straight day of practice Thursday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: Getting exercise clearance is a good sign, but fantasy owners are going to have wait and see on the final call for Week 12, which will likely come Friday.
Charles Clay - TE - Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay (knee) is expected to be a game-time decision for Week 12 because of a knee injury.
Huddle Up: The late-afternoon kickoff in Denver isn't in the favor of Clay's fantasy owners so make other TE plans if you prefer to play it safe.
Julius Thomas - TE - Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas (ankle) is not participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: Thomas missed a second straight day, but still has a chance to play Sunday, especially if he can get in some work Friday.
Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (illness) is not participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20. It appears like Jones will still be ready for the team's Week 12 game.
Huddle Up: Sounds like a bug is making the rounds in Atlanta, but go ahead and count on having Jones available Sunday, especially if he can return to practice Friday.
Le'Veon Bell - RB - Pittsburgh Steelers
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will receive as many carries as he can handle, according to offensive coordinator Todd Haley.
Huddle Up: With the release of LeGarrette Blount the Steelers are thin at running back, but Bell has handled large workloads before and fantasy-wise now there's no risk of someone sniping him at the goal line.
