Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Veteran wideout Cecil Shorts blew out his knee in yesterday’s win over the Chargers. According to Britt McHenry of ESPN, Shorts suffered a torn ACL, MCL, PCL and dislocated his kneecap.

That effectively leaves skin as all that was holding his lower leg to his upper leg, and would obviously mean Shorts is out for the rest of the season.

Bucs RB Doug Martin 'bent back' but says he's fine

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Buccaneers closed out Sunday’s 28-21 win over the Chargers with running back Doug Martin on the bench, but it doesn’t look like the veteran is going to be out for another extended period.

He said after the game, via Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, that he was “bent back” before heading for the sideline and that he expects to be fine.

Fantasy Impact:

The Bucs got Jacquizz Rodgers back this week. Martin missed six games with a hamstring injury this year which allowed Rodgers to make a fantasy impact. In Week 13, Rodgers made a big catch on the game-winning touchdown drive and then ran the clock out on the next Tampa possession. Rodgers may be worth owning for Martin owners.

The Chargers play late on Sunday.

Wednesday, November 30, 2016, 6:36pm

Chargers WR Tyrell Williams may have labrum injury

Tuesday, November 29, 2016, 5:11pm

Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

In 2014, Tyrell Williams played through a torn right labrum during his senior year at Western Oregon. He underwent offseason surgery. Come May, the Chargers signed the undrafted rookie wide receiver to a three-year deal, and he steadily developed to earn an opportunity first on special teams and then, by season’s end, offense.

Williams has played through a right shoulder injury before.

He may need to again.

To what degree the second-year pro will be limited these final five games will be wait-and-see. This week, his status is worth monitoring. Players have a Tuesday off-day before returning to practice Wednesday leading up to Sunday’s home game against the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact:

Labrum issues can be tricky. Not all are alike, the story said. The full scope of his labrum damage is not known. Coach Mike McCoy expressed optimism Monday about his status moving forward. Williams, 24, exited in the fourth quarter Sunday against the Texans. He landed on the shoulder following an incompletion, finishing the day with a team-high eight catches for 70 yards, including a 21-yard touchdown.

Friday, November 25, 2016, 6:43pm

Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) took limited practice reps all week. Miller only had an ankle injury last week and now he’s dealing with sore ribs as well. He should be able to play against the Chargers.

Friday, November 25, 2016, 6:43pm

Chargers WR Travis Benjamin (knee, questionable) took full practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 12. It looks like Benjamin will return this week. He’s difficult to trust in a bad matchup coming off of a knee injury.

Friday, November 25, 2016, 6:43pm

Chargers WR Jeremy Butler (ankle, questionable) took full practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 12.

Friday, November 25, 2016, 6:43pm

Chargers TE Asante Cleveland (concussion, knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 12.

Friday, November 25, 2016, 6:43pm

Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (shoulder) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Fiedorowicz is the #5 TE since Week 4, and has the #9 per game average in that span. He will be fine to face the Chargers.
