Indianopolis Star - [Full Article]

Now, the Indianapolis Colts could be down two quarterbacks.

Matt Hasselbeck was pulled late in Sunday’s lopsided 45-10 loss in Pittsburgh after injuring his neck on two separate plays. According to Hasselbeck, he isn’t sure if he’ll be able to play next Sunday when the team faces the Jaguars in Jacksonville.

“I don’t know about that yet,” he said. “I would hope that I could.”

Hasselbeck later added that, if he had to, he believes he could’ve finished Sunday's game.

Fantasy Impact:

Hasselbeck said he hurt his neck on one first-quarter play and one third-quarter play. After the second hit, he remained on the field for several seconds, in obvious pain. He returned after both hits, but was subbed out for third-stringer Charlie Whitehurst with six minutes left and the game well out of reach.

Colts QB Andrew Luck (abdomen, kidney, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 13. Matt Hasselbeck will continue to start.

Friday, December 4, 2015, 6:28pm

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (concussion, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 13. Roethlisberger is all set to play in a nice matchup with the Colts. He is averaging 20.9 FP in the six games where he’s played at least 86% of the snaps. That would be the 3rd-highest average at his position.

Friday, December 4, 2015, 6:28pm

Steelers WR Martavis Bryant (hip, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 13. Bryant didn’t miss any snaps that we know of last week, so we’re expecting him to play against the Colts. He’s tied with DeAndre Hopkins with the highest PPG (14.7) at his position.

Friday, December 4, 2015, 6:28pm

Colts WR Phillip Dorsett (ankle, out) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is out for Week 13.

Friday, December 4, 2015, 6:28pm

Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (knee, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 13. Jackson wasn’t on the injury report last week, but he played his usual complement of snaps against the Colts, so he should be fine for Sunday. The probable tag confirms this.

Colts WR Andre Johnson (not injury related) took full practice reps again Friday.

Colts WR Griff Whalen (heel) was removed from the injury report Friday after taking full practice reps Thursday.

Falcons place WR Leonard Hankerson on season-ending IR

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Atlanta Falcons activated wide receiver/return specialist Devin Hester from injured reserve Friday and placed wide receiver Leonard Hankerson on season-ending IR.

The move with Hester was expected, as he is set to make his season debut against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. He missed the first 11 games after tearing two ligaments in his right big toe during the preseason.

As for Hankerson, he had been battling a hamstring strain for a while and aggravated it two games ago against the Indianapolis Colts. He had missed three games because of the injury.

Related players: Jacob Tamme

Fantasy Impact:

Hankerson’s absence directly impacts the number of targets that TE Jacob Tamme will see. Tamme has averaged 6.0-67-0.25 on 8.5 T/G in the four games that Hankerson has missed. He’s averaging just 3.3-41 on 4.7 T/G in the six games in which Hankerson has played. Tamme becomes a low-end TE1 for rest-of-season purposes.
