Jay Cutler ruled out for Week 14
Thursday, December 5, 2013, 5:04pm
Josh McCown has been playing very well, so there's no need to rush Cutler back. Temperatures will be low on Monday night (11 degrees at kickoff), so that's something to consider when owners set their lineups.
Brandon Weeden reports concussion symptoms
Sunday, December 1, 2013, 8:53pm
It's not clear when Weeden suffered the concussion, but he told the team after the game that he was suffering from concussion like symptoms, according to Cleveland.com.
Weeden was only starting against Jacksonville because last week's starter, Jason Campbell, suffered a concussion of his own against Pittsburgh.

Coughlin had said Nicks didn’t play against the Cowboys because of how much practice time he missed last week. So if nothing else, at least he’s giving himself a chance to play this Sunday against the Redskins.

Rashad Jennings still the RB1 in Oakland
Wednesday, November 27, 2013, 12:35pm
The question is how much McFadden will play based on the production of Rashad Jennings in his absence.
Raiders coach Dennis Allen said if McFadden is "fully healthy," both backs would play, but it doesn't sound as if Jennings is taking a back seat to anyone.
"You can't deny Rashad Jennings over the last month of the season has led the NFL in yards from scrimmage," Allen said. "I think he's earned the right and deserves the right to continue to get his carries and touches and we'll still do that."
Over the past four weeks, Jennings has been the #2 RB in fantasy, so it wouldn't make much sense to send him to the bench. McFadden's return is a concern, but Jennings still looks like a strong low-end RB1 play in a great matchup with a depleted Cowboys rush defense.
Nick Foles claims starting QB job
Tuesday, November 26, 2013, 1:23pm
Michael Vick is back healthy and will backup Foles this week against the Cardinals. But the good news for Foles' owners is there is no more worry about Vick taking the job. Vick even said last week that Foles has earned the job the rest of the way. Foles had one awful game against the Cowboys this season but bounced back from that to throw 7 TDs against the Raiders. We've had Foles as a mid-range QB1 in some recent starts and that will likely continue.

Lack of sufficient practice time last week was the reason wide receiver Hakeem Nicks was inactive for the New York Giants' game against the Dallas Cowboys, according to coach Tom Coughlin, who seemed annoyed by the circumstances surrounding Nicks' situation.
"On Wednesday, as you have tracked it, he had an issue with the abdominal area, thought it might be a hernia, so he went through all the tests, etc., and did not practice. Was not able to practice," Coughlin said. "You asked me the question late in the week, and I answered: 'What would be the issue? Speed. He probably can't be full speed.'"
As the story points out, it's unclear whether Nicks will be ready to practice this week or play Sunday night against the Washington Redskins. It doesn't help the game is a Sunday night of course, but, if you happened to have handcuffed Nicks with Rueben Randle you'd be in good shape.

He also had a package of plays the Raiders could have used, but HC Dennis Allen felt it better to give him another week of rest -- hence the use of Marcel Reece as the wildcat quarterback instead of Pryor.
Something to watch for Thursday against the Cowboys. Pryor won't be a starting fantasy option, but if you're playing McGloin, it could certainly take away from his production.
