Ravens WR Breshad Perriman (knee) should be ready to play this spring

Baltimore Ravens - [Full Article]

Ravens WR Breshad Perriman, who missed his entire rookie season after injuring his knee in the first training camp practice, still isn’t cleared to play football. However, he should be ready to do so when football activities resume.

“I can anticipate at some point this spring that he’ll be out there, ready to play,” GM Ozzie Newsome said.

After being placed on injured reserve in November, Perriman said he suffered a partially torn PCL on July 30, then tore it more while trying to test the knee out before a game on Sept. 27. He didn’t practice again after having a minor arthroscopic surgery.

Fantasy Impact:

Due to the opportunity in the Ravens' receiving corps, Perriman looked like a nice sleeper prior to his injury. Steve L Smith is expected to return and Kamar Aiken emerged as a viable WR2, so Perriman is not guaranteed starter's snaps even though he brings deep speed that neither Smith nor Aiken possess.

Colts hire Ravens LB coach Ted Monachino as defensive coordinator.

Fantasy Impact:

According to his Wikipedia page, Monachino has not served as a defensive coordinator since running the Hannibal High School (MO) defense. He has coached in the NFL since 2006, serving as the defensive line coach for the Jaguars from 2006-10, followed by a long stint (2010-15) as the Ravens' LB coach.

The Ravens, who are finishing their 20th season in Baltimore, now have 20 players on season-ending injured reserve.

They reached that number on Tuesday, when they officially placed wide receiver Marlon Brown on I.R., ending his disappointing season.

A.J. McCarron has 'significant' wrist sprain, could play Week 17

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Bengals quarterback A.J. McCarron suffered a sprained left wrist during Monday night’s loss to the Broncos.

Citing a source, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport tweeted Tuesday that an MRI on McCarron’s non-throwing arm revealed no fracture and that there’s still a chance he plays next Sunday vs. the Ravens, though in a separate tweet Rapoport called the sprain “significant.”

Fantasy Impact:

The Bengals have clinched the AFC North. They’d only get a first-round playoff bye if they win Sunday and the Broncos lose to the Chargers, the story went on to say. So, this is a meaningful game and the extra week off would be nice to give to starter Andy Dalton. The other healthy quarterback on the roster is Keith Wenning, a 2014 Ravens draft pick who’s never played in a regular season game.

A.J. McCarron to get MRI on wrist

The Bengals already had quarterback concerns. Now they have to wait on the results of an MRI today to see if it’s a full-blown panic.

Via Paul Dehner of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Bengals backup A.J. McCarron said he was getting an MRI to determine the severity of a left wrist injury that happened on the overtime fumble that cost the Bengals the game.

“I hope not,” McCarron said, when asked if it would keep him out this week against the Ravens. “Going to wait until [Tuesday], but hopefully not.”

Fantasy Impact:

The Bengals still don’t know if starter Andy Dalton’s broken thumb will be healed in time for a potential first-round game, since they lost their best chance at a bye week Monday night. Keith Wenning is next up on the depth chart.

49ers sign DuJuan Harris

ESPN - [Full Article]

Jarryd Hayne fans waiting in joyful hope for the Australian rugby league star’s return to the San Francisco 49ers' active roster were likely dealt a blow to the gut with Tuesday’s signing of running back DuJuan Harris off the Baltimore Ravens' practice squad.

The thinking was that with Shaun Draughn nursing a knee injury suffered in Sunday’s 24-14 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals and the Niners extremely thin at running back, they would contemplate promoting Hayne from the practice squad, where he has resided since Nov. 2, two days after the team surprisingly waived him.

Instead the Niners signed Harris, 27, who has been with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks and Ravens since entering the league as an undrafted free agent out of Troy in 2011.

Fantasy Impact:

Harris filled in after Thomas Rawls went down in Seattle two weeks ago. Harris got the bulk of the work that game, but fumbled, and was cut when it looked like he might be the Seahawks top back until Marshawn Lynch returned. With Draughn's status up in the air for Week 16, it's possible the team turns to Harris.

Chiefs expect to use Spencer Ware on offense Week 16

The Kansas City Chiefs survived nicely Sunday against the Ravens without running back Spencer Ware. He got in for two plays on special teams in the Chiefs’ 34-14 victory, but didn’t play on offense.

In the bigger picture, the Chiefs need Ware. He’s been a nice complement to Charcandrick West.

Coach Andy Reid indicated that Ware, who injured his ribs in a game against the Chargers two weeks ago, would be ready to resume his normal offensive role this coming Sunday against the Browns at Arrowhead Stadium.

Fantasy Impact:

With Ware on the sideline in Baltimore, the Chiefs went with West and Knile Davis at running back. West rushed for 76 yards, including a 38-yard touchdown. Davis had 14 yards on five carries. Ware should at the very least take over Davis' role next week.

Javorius Allen benched for fumbling

Monday, December 21, 2015, 12:44pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Rookie running back Javorius Allen learned the harsh consequences of fumbling for the second straight week for the Baltimore Ravens.

After his costly turnover was returned by the Kansas City Chiefs for a touchdown in the first quarter, Allen was benched for the final 47 minutes, 49 seconds of the game. The Ravens went with Terrance West and Terrence Magee at running back the rest of the game.

Will Allen remain on the sideline for the remainder of the season, or will he get a chance to redeem himself next Sunday?

"It probably won’t carry over, but you play the best players," coach John Harbaugh said. "At running back, the best players don’t fumble. Fumbling – it is what it is. You have to hold onto the football. He knows that. I have a lot of love and respect for Buck. No way is Buck going to be banished, by any stretch."

Fantasy Impact:

Allen had gone his first 131 touches in the NFL without fumbling. After he coughed the ball up a week ago against Seattle, Harbaugh said he didn't need to talk to Allen because he didn't have a history of fumbling. This is certainly something that could hurt Allen's value heading into Week 16.
