Aaron Hernandez not expected to play vs. Colts
Friday, November 16, 2012, 3:51pm
Rob Gronkowski should continue to post strong numbers with Hernandez sidelined.
Blaine Gabbert hopes to be ready for Week 11
Friday, November 9, 2012, 1:05pm
Blaine Gabbert, the Jaguars’ starting quarterback for the last 23 games, aggravated a left shoulder injury in the fourth quarter of a 27-10 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday. He left the game and did not return.
HC Mike Mularkey said he didn’t know the extent of the injury after the game. Gabbert had sustained a shoulder injury against Oakland October 21. He left that game, and played the last two games after practicing throughout the week.
Gabbert, who said he reinjured the same area he injured against Oakland, said he hopes to play against Houston November 18.
“I’m going to do my best and be ready to roll,” he said.
Maurice Jones-Drew "two weeks away"
Friday, November 9, 2012, 11:53am
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has been out of the lineup since he injured his foot on Oct. 21 against the Oakland Raiders. The latest news comes from NFL Network's Alex Flanagan, and she is reporting that Jones-Drew is "about two weeks away" from returning to the lineup.
Colts RB Donald Brown, WR Donnie Avery ACTIVE for TNF
Thursday, November 8, 2012, 7:12pm
Brown is active, and technically listed as starter, but we would not be putting him into any fantasy lineups and would not be surprised if he has a very limited role. Brown did not practice at all this week and saw very limited action last week before sustaining the injury. Vick Ballard has a great matchup and makes for a decent flex play or bye week fill in at RB. Avery practiced fully Tuesday and Wednesday and should return to his normal role, although T.Y. Hilton has been playing better of late. Dwayne Allen will continue to see more looks with Coby Fleener sidelined.

Colts TE Coby Fleener (shoulder) — He was sporting a sling this week and how long that partially dislocated shoulder takes to heal is anyone’s guess. The best guess for now is at least a couple more weeks, but it could be longer.
As long as Fleener is sidelined, Dwayne Allen should continue to be a solid low-end TE1 option.
