The Bills made it official on Monday moving WR Marcus Easley to injured reserve in the wake of his severe knee injury suffered Sunday in the win over Dallas. Claimed off waivers to fill the void left by Easley the Bills were awarded WR Leonard Hankerson.

Hankerson (6-2, 211) was most recently with the New England Patriots, who was claimed off waivers following his release by the Atlanta Falcons. The former third-round pick of the Washington Redskins (2011) was placed on injured reserve by Atlanta in early December with a hamstring injury, but was waived a week later in an injury settlement.

Dez Bryant to get more tests on foot

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Dallas Cowboys have yet to rule Dez Bryant out of Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins, but the wide receiver will have more tests this week on his surgically-repaired right foot and his ailing ankle.

When asked if there is a worry if there is another fracture in Bryant’s foot, coach Jason Garrett said, “just evaluating where he is.”

Bryant had surgery Sept. 14 to repair a broken fifth metatarsal in his right foot suffered in the season opener. He had a bone graft done at the time of the surgery to help promote healing, which is how the Cowboys dealt with the same fracture to defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence last year. He later had a stem-cell injection for his foot in October.

Fantasy Impact:

Earlier in the month Bryant said he was feeling as good as he had felt all season but Garrett said the receiver’s foot and ankle have gotten progressively worse in the last few weeks.

Washington could rest starters Week 17

It’s a good problem to have if you’re Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden.

With the NFC East Division championship and the No. 4 seed in the NFC playoffs already in hand, the Redskins could decide to keep the momentum of a three-game winning streak going into Sunday’s regular season matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.

Or they could decide not to risk any major injuries and rest their starters against the Cowboys, potentially keeping them as fresh as possible for the next week’s first round of the playoffs.

Fantasy Impact:

Gruden first wants to meet with his coaching staff and evaluate how his players have recovered from Saturday’s victory against the Eagles, the story said. The Redskins have Monday off and return to the building Tuesday for meetings and a walkthrough session before hitting the practice field on Wednesday.

Matt Jones INACTIVE vs. Eagles

Redskins Inactives
Matt Jones RB
Robert Griffin QB
Perry Riley LB
Arie Kouandijo OL
Marcel Jensen TE
Frank Kearse DE
JeRon Hamm TE

Fantasy Impact:

Alfred Morris and Chris Thompson will pick up the load in this contest, but Thompson especially in the passing game. The Eagles were gashed by David Johnson last week for 180 yards and three TDs so Morris has some potential here. Morris hasn't been a great play much of the year, however.

Friday, December 25, 2015, 10:17pm

Eagles QB Sam Bradford (left shoulder, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 16. Bradford is a Sneaky Start against the Redskins.

Friday, December 25, 2015, 10:17pm

Redskins RB Matt Jones (hip, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 16. He and Alfred Morris have a nice matchup against the Eagles. If Jones is out, Morris will become a Sneaky Start.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (shoulder, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 16.

Friday, December 25, 2015, 10:17pm

Friday, December 25, 2015, 10:17pm

Friday, December 25, 2015, 10:17pm

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (shoulder, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 16. Reed is good to go for a tough matchup with the Eagles.

Thursday, December 24, 2015, 6:12pm
