Stokley has a lengthy history of concussions.
Source: Adrian Peterson 'unlikely' to play Week 15

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will not need surgery on his sprained right foot, but is unlikely to play on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
Peterson sustained a mid-foot sprain in the second quarter on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens, as linebacker Arthur Brown tackled him while he tried to stretch for a first down. X-rays were negative on Peterson's foot, a MRI showed no structural damage or risk of a Lisfranc injury, and Peterson said on Monday afternoon he planned to play Sunday. But he was still scheduled to undergo a CT scan on his foot, and the Vikings planned to send the results of Peterson's medical exams to a foot specialist.
When the Vikings got the results on Monday evening, they determined Peterson would have to spend time in a walking boot and prove he can run once he gets out of the boot, according to the source.
While AD avoided surgery and Lisfranc, it looks like he's still going to miss at least this week. And in reality, owners should probably prepare for him to be shut down for the season given the Vikings have no chance at the playoffs and there isn't much of a reason to bring him back. Toby Gerhart is a must-add in a pretty good matchup against the Eagles in Week 15.

Raves HC John Harbaugh says WR Brandon Stokley has a concussion and will go through concussion testing protocol, could be 'problematic' given how many.

We all know what happened this past week as Bush was injured in warmups and didn't play despite being active. To make matters worse for owners, the Lions play on Monday night at home against the Ravens in Week 15. Hopefully if you're a Bush owner, you're a Joique Bell owner as well, because the switch would be easy despite it not being the greatest of matchups.
Dennis Pitta added to active roster

It's a remarkable comeback for Pitta, whose dislocated hip was originally considered a season-ending injury in late July. He returned to practice on Nov. 20 and increased his workload in practice this week. On Friday, coach John Harbaugh said Pitta had a "reasonable chance" of playing.
Pitta, the second-leading receiver on last season's Super Bowl team, will provide a boost for quarterback Joe Flacco and the NFL's 29th-ranked offense, the story pointed out. Pitta has been on the injured reserve-designated to return list since dislocating his hip on July 27, the Ravens' first contact practice of training camp. It would make sense for him to be on some sort of snap count his first game back, but even so, those snaps could include the red zone. Even so, we have Pitta well down our list of TEs this week making him a risky play in what is likely a playoff game.

According to Jeff Dickerson of ESPNChicago.com, the Browns signed QB Caleb Hanie to fill out the depth chart. The former Bears and Broncos backup has been out of the league since he was cut by the Ravens this summer.
Le'Veon Bell suffered a concussion
Tuesday, December 3, 2013, 8:52am
A violent goal-line collision in a 22-20 loss to the Ravens left Le'Veon Bell concussed, but the Steelers' rookie running back did some running Monday and is hopeful of playing Sunday against the visiting Dolphins.
"I'm going to take it day by day and see where we're at," Bell said. "The goal is obviously to play, but if [I'm] not able to, I'm not able to."
Bell and Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith rammed helmets when they met near the goal line as the former tried to score on a 1-yard touchdown run. Bell fell forward and into the end zone even though the force of the collision caused his helmet to pop off.
The played was ruled a TD at first but was reversed because his helmet came off before crossing the goal line. He doesn't remember the hit but said he hasn't experienced side effects. Speaking Tuesday, Tomlin said Bell "looked good." His fate is in the hands of NFL protocol, however. The Steelers would likely rely on a committee of Felix Jones and Jonathan Dwyer in Week 14.
Dennis Pitta decision likely end of week
Monday, December 2, 2013, 8:41pm
"We'll go through this week and see how he does," Harbaugh said Monday. "If he can play, he will. We want to get him up. That's our goal. It's not 100 percent certain at this point."
HC John Harbaugh said he believes Pitta is doing well but the question will be how well, and if the doctors give the OK. That decision will likely come later this week. Pitta could be eased back in or be on a snap count if he plays this week. His Week 14 matchup against the Vikings (28th) would be a good one while the rest of the season offers just OK matchups (Detroit 18th, New England 14th). Given it's the TE position, it's not out of the question he could step in and have TE1 potential if all goes well.
