-Andre Johnson won’t practice Wednesday and coach Kubiak said he’ll be a game-time decision Sunday against the Bengals. MRI revealed a mild strain. We think he’ll be held out a few games, maybe the rest of the season, to avoid reaggravation.
-Brandon Jacobs is dealing with a hamstring strain, in addition to being a bad running back. You can do better than him this week.
-Fred Davis has been officially suspended for four games for a failed drug test. As of now, there is no appeal as they’d have to go through, both the NFL and NFLPA. Davis, is however, looking into options other than serving. Not sure how he’d even think he’d win an appeal. Owners in re-draft leagues can look to the wire for other options.
-Steve Corkran think that Darren McFadden has an 85-90 percent shot at playing in week 15 against the Lions. McFadden hasn’t been officially ruled out for week 14, but week 15 does seem more realistic, however, coach Jackson has not offered any type of timetable.
-Adrian Peterson said his ankle is only 70 percent right now. The Vikes are 2-10, so there’s little reason to rush their franchise player back too soon. ADP will test his running and cutting on Friday, but it’s looking like Toby Gerhart will start his third straight game.
-Matt Forte has undergone the platelet rich plasma injection therapy so that he can speed up the healing. It really depends on how his body responds.
-Peyton Hillis was limited in practice, but did take first-team reps. Coach Pat Shurmer expects him to start against the Steelers, but is a risky fantasy play against the stout Steeler defense.
-Jerry Jones is planning on Miles Austin to be a full go in practice this week.
-A trio of Raiders missed Wednesday practice; Jacoby Ford, Denarius Moore and Darren McFadden. Ford didn’t receive his medical clearance like he hoped he would and Moore is still battling an ankle injury that is putting his week in doubt. DMC doesn’t come as too much of a surprise, with week 15 looking like his target return.
-Laurent Robinson held out of practice with a shoulder injury. Definitely keep an eye on this one.
-Mark Ingram missed practice today with turf toe, and these injuries are usually nagging in nature. He looked to be healthy, finally, in Sunday’s game but that doesn’t appear to be the case. Check his status throughout the week, but he could be doubtful this week.
