Jadeveon Clowney - LB - Houston Texans
Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee) was officially placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: Clowney isn't even a lock to be ready for the start of the 2015 season. His rookie campaign ends with zero sacks and a knee injury that is a concern going forward.
Lamar Miller - RB - Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, expressed frustration that his client is not being used enough in the offense. Miller has been receiving 10 to 12 carries per game, yet he's averaging 4.8 yards per carry this year. Miller's 12.4 carries per game ranks him 16th in the league. Also, the Dolphins have run the ball fewer than the previous game for three straight weeks now.
Huddle Up: Rosenhaus has a right to be upset. For some reason the Dolphins coaching staff refuses to let Miller be the team's feature back. This has been the case for two years now, despite the fact that Miller has proven to be the most talented runner on the team. Miller remains a RB2 for fantasy purposes but he's being held back by poor coaching.
Andre Johnson - WR - Houston Texans
Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 10, and he remains day-to-day as he goes through the league's concussion protocol this week. Head coach Bill O'Brien would not say where Johnson stands in the concussion protocol.
Huddle Up: Nothing new or unexpected here as the WR's fate won't be decided until later in the week.
Ryan Mathews - RB - San Diego Chargers
San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: It is the first workout of the week but definitely something to keep an eye on as we get closer to Sunday.
DeSean Jackson - WR - Washington Redskins
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10 and is 50-50 to play in Week 15 against the New York Giants, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Jackson has a decent chance of playing this week after sitting out in Week 14, but let's see what he's able to do Thursday and Friday.
Julius Thomas - TE - Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10 but expects to play in Week 15 against the San Diego Chargers.
Huddle Up: For those Thomas owners who've survived despite the TE's month-long absence, it's looking like this will be the week he returns barring any practice setbacks.
Eddie Lacy - RB - Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (hip) appeared to be limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: Lacy and the Pack have downplayed the hip issue which cropped up Monday night and seeing him at least get in some work two days later is encouraging. Something, though, to monitor the rest of the week.
Larry Fitzgerald - WR - Arizona Cardinals
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) fully practiced Wednesday, Dec. 10, and is probable for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Green light for Fitzgerald owners again this week, albeit in a tough matchup against one of the league's best defenses over the last month.
Denard Robinson - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson (foot) is out for the remainder of the season with a foot sprain.
Huddle Up: As suddenly as he burst on to the fantasy scene in midseason, Robinson's year has come to an abrupt end, and it'll now be a combo of Toby Gerhart, Jordan Todman and Storm Johnson finishing out the season at RB for the woeful Jags.
C.J. Anderson - RB - Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: Despite his three-touchdown day Sunday, Anderson was in and out of the game. At this point, there's no reason not to expect him to play Sunday in San Diego, but backup Juwon Thompson might be in line for extra work even if he does.
Julio Jones - WR - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: No real surprise as the team's first practice of the week comes only 2 days after Jones was hurt Monday night, and coach Mike Smith said Wednesday that he's hopeful the WR will be able to play against the Steelers. Definitely stay tuned ...
Demaryius Thomas - WR - Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (ankle) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: Thomas played Sunday after getting his ankle stepped on in practice last week, but he clearly wasn't himself with 2 catches for 11 yards. He should be able to show something more in practice the rest of the week if he's going to avoid a repeat.
LeGarrette Blount - RB - New England Patriots
New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount will have his marijuana possession charge in Pittsburgh dropped if he serves 50 hours of community service by February. Blount could still receive a punishment from the NFL once his case is resolved, according to his attorney.
Huddle Up: It appears as if the RB will be able to finish out the season without any kind of suspension or the like, but who really knows when it comes to league discipline these days? Just something to keep in the back of your mind if you're counting on Blount down the stretch.
Colt McCoy - QB - Washington Redskins
Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (neck) said he is making good progress in his rehab from a neck injury. He was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10 said the injury does not affect his throwing motion and that he can't make the injury worse if he plays.
Huddle Up: Washington's starting QB decision for Sunday remains up in the air, and we'll see what the rest of the practice week reveals.
Denard Robinson - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson (ankle) is in a walking boot Wednesday, Dec. 10. Robinson is dealing with a mid-foot sprain.
Huddle Up: The signs continue to point in the wrong direction for Robinson, who has netted only 99 yards on 35 carries over the last three games.
Roddy White - WR - Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (ankle) played 63 of 67 offensive snaps in Week 14, and head coach Mike Smith conceded White is not 100 percent healthy. "Roddy is a guy that's going to fight through injury, and he was injured," Smith said. "He's had an ankle injury. He played, by the way, the most snaps of any wide receiver in the game (Monday) night. It's hard to keep him out."
Huddle Up: White is coming off a 3-42-1 performance on five targets and remains a solid WR option as long as he's suiting up.
Jamaal Charles - RB - Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee, ankle) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: A late-season first practice of the week so don't get too concerned -- especially given the Sunday Charles just went through.
Joseph Fauria - TE - Detroit Lions
Detroit Lions TE Joseph Fauria (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Dec. 10, with an ankle injury, and the team re-signed TE Kellen Davis.
Huddle Up: Fauria finally caught a TD this past Sunday, but don't get too excited about Davis as Eric Ebron and Brandon Pettigrew remain around as well.
Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) was discharged from the hospital Wednesday, Dec. 10. Newton is sore, but in good spirits as he continues his recovery. Newton will not be at the team's facilities Wednesday, and it is unknown how long it will be until he's ready to return to action. 'That will be determined really on a day-to-day basis and we'll see how fast the soreness goes away,' team spokesman Charlie Dayton said. 'He'll start the recuperation process today.' QB Derek Anderson was taking first-team repetitions in practice Wednesday.
Huddle Up: Good news that he's out of the hospital, but he certainly remains a definite longshot to play Sunday against the Bucs.
Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers
Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (back) remained hospitalized Wednesday, Dec. 10, and there are no updates on his health.
Huddle Up: Words is that Cam has a Tony Romo-like back injury with two fractured bones that would still allow him to play. But he'll have to get out of the hospital and rejoin his team before a determination can be made about his availability, so those banking on Newton for fantasy help this week should be implementing Plan B sooner rather than later.
