Week 15 Essential NFL Practice News & Notes for Thursday
Eagles QB Sam Bradford (left shoulder) took full practice reps again Thursday. Bradford is expected to start against the Cardinals, but he’s not an appealing streaming option. He has only accounted for more than one touchdown in three of his 11 games this year.
Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck (back, ribs) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Hasselbeck is expected to start against the Texans, though he’s severely banged up, so it’s no sure thing.
Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) missed practice again Thursday. Hoyer won’t play. It’s going to be T.J. Yates this week. This isn’t necessarily bad for DeAndre Hopkins, though it is a bit of a concern.
Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Brock Osweiler will start Week 15. It’s a fairly nice matchup for a Steelers defense that has fared pretty well, fantasy-wise.
