This clears up an earlier post that said Palmer has a high ankle sprain. He's expected to play in a tough matchup at Seattle this week.

Manuel didn't miss a snap and is expected to be OK for Week 16.
Kelly: Eagles won't rest starters if Dallas wins
Monday, December 16, 2013, 2:28pm
If the Cowboys win at 1 p.m. over the Redskins, the 8:30 Sunday night game becomes meaningless for the Eagles, and the division comes down to a Week 17 showdown between the teams. If the Cowboys lose, an Eagles win over the Bears clinches the division. It's something to think about for owners of Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson, though. It's one thing for Kelly to say this on a Monday before the game, but when you're looking at a meaningless game, it's possible Kelly could change his mind and make sure everyone is healthy for Week 17. A terrible Eagles performance last week against the Vikings keeps hope that Kelly goes the distance with his horses, but this is something to monitor.
Cam Newton's toe injury 'not a bid deal'
Monday, December 16, 2013, 2:16pm
Newton injured his toe at the end of a 7-yard scramble on the Panthers' final offensive play of the first half, and was taken into the locker room before halftime to be examined.
Newton did not undergo X-rays on the toe, and Rivera said it is not being characterized as "turf toe."
Newton was the last Panthers' player to return to the field after halftime. But he didn't miss a snap.

Jags WR Cecil Shorts not ready to be shut down yet.
HC Gus Bradley said Shorts' groin is not improving, though, so it's certainly possible he is shut down for the season. Shorts was inactive this past week. It looks like he's trying to get back in the lineup but won't be a safe play if he's successful, and it's a tough matchup against the Titans on top of it. We could see Ace Sanders and Mike Brown as the team's top-two WRs again this week.

Coming off the toughest statistical game of his rookie season — 14 carries, 25 yards, 1.8 per carry in a road loss to the Arizona Cardinals — Zac Stacy bounced back in a big way Sunday, helping the Rams knock off the NFC South-leading New Orleans Saints 27-16 Sunday afternoon at the Edward Jones Dome.
The 5-foot-8, 214-pound Stacy had a career-high 28 carries, rushed for 133 yards and scored a career-long 40-yard run late in the first half that allowed the Rams to take a 24-3 lead to the break.
Stacy had 106 yards at halftime, setting a team rookie record.
All that after suffering a hip injury on the game’s first drive.
“I just took a shot ... (the doctors and trainers) fixed it up for me and I went back out there,’’ he said. “I’m a competitor. I want to get back on the field as much as I can to help this team and this organization be successful.’’
Stacy will get the Bucs for what is likely your fantasy finals in Week 16. He doesn't seem too concerned with the hip injury that kept him out of just one drive. It's not a great matchup yet again, but Stacy has been pretty solid since taking over as the Rams RB1 so he should be a worthy RB2 option.

The Cards are banged up heading into a game with Seattle in Week 16. Larry Fitzgerald suffered a concussion, Michael Floyd was questionable leading up to Week 15 and now RB Andre Ellington has a hip injury that he says is fine. Palmer will be a risky play as anything other than an average QB2 this week in a tough matchup.
