“If there are no setbacks, he should be OK,” Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said of TE Jordan Reed (head).

Giants HC Tom Coughlin did not say if Hakeem Nicks’ injury has shown much improvement. “Hopefully we're going to see," Coughlin said. "That's why he's going to practice. Hopefully he will."

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.

RGIII will remain the starter

Newark Star-Ledger - [Full Article]

Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan brushed aside any notion that he could bench Robert Griffin III.

He will indeed be behind center for Sunday night's game against the New York Giants at FedEX Field, even after another middling performance in a 27-6 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Monday.

"The growth of the quarterback, the maturation process, he needs those repetitions," Shanahan told reporters at the team's training facility on Tuesday when asked if backup Kick Cousins would be a better option. "That's why he's going through these repetitions: to get better.

"One of the reasons why we had the success where he separated himself from every other rookie in the history of the game was he was able to do things that other quarterbacks couldn't do. He had that threat. That threat is not quite there like it was a year ago."

Fantasy Impact:

Things are starting to get ugly in Washington. RGIII ripped the play calling and 49ers LB Ahmad Brooks said Griffin shouldn't even be playing because of his knee. We've had a lot of questions about benching RGIII in our Discuss Your Team forum as owners are getting fed up too. Coming off a very poor matchup against the 9ers, RGIII's got a couple more tough matchups vs. the Giants and Chiefs, but does play Atlanta and Dallas in Weeks 15 and 16 of the fantasy playoffs - two very favorable matchups.

Michael Crabtree activated, expected to play Week 13

49ers will activate WR Michael Crabtree off PUP today and he is expected to play Sunday.

Fantasy Impact:

This was the sense all along after Crabtree wasn't activated for Monday Night Football against the Redskins. Crabtree will be a bit of a risk to play in Week 13 against the Rams, just based on the possibility of a limited snap count coming off a torn Achilles injury. But if all goes well, snaps should increase going forward. Keep in mind the 9ers play the Seahawks (12th against WRs) Week 14. But, that's followed by much better matchups with the Bucs and Falcons in Weeks 15 and 16. This is also good news for QB Colin Kaepernick as he now has a full arsenal of weapons for the first time this season.

ESPN New York - [Full Article]

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.'"

Fantasy Impact:

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.

MNF Injury Report - Reed OUT
Saturday, November 23, 2013, 7:44pm

49ers

OUT
CB Tarell Brown (ribs), G Mike Iupati (knee), WR Quinton Patton (foot)

QUESTIONABLE
TE Garrett Celek (hamstring), WR Mario Manningham (knee), DT Ray McDonald (ankle)

PROBABLE
DT Quinton Dial (ankle), RB Frank Gore (ankle), QB Colin Kaepernick (back), LB Dan Skuta (foot), DT Justin Smith (shoulder)

Redskins

OUT
TE Jordan Reed (concussion)

QUESTIONABLE
DE Stephen Bowen (knee), S Jose Gumbs (ankle), RB Darrel Young (hamstring)

PROBABLE
CB E.J. Biggers (knee), CB Josh Wilson (toe)

Fantasy Impact:

Logan Paulsen and Fred Davis will try to fill in for Reed in a not-so-favorable matchup against the 49ers. Paulsen had a TD in Week 10 vs. the Vikings but only finished with three yards, so neither is really a safe play. For the 49ers, WR Mario Manningham is questionable while QB Colin Kaepernick and RB Frank Gore are probable.
