Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (not injury related) was removed from the injury report Friday. Blount is fully expected to play against Miami, who has struggled against the run in recent weeks.

Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 15. Bush gained a meager 34 yards on 12 touches in Week 14, but the workload gives him some flex appeal (especially in PPR formats) against a shaky Minnesota rush defense. Joique Bell is expected to carry most of the rushing load against the Vikings. The Lions play late on Sunday.

Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee, ankle, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 15. Charles is dealing with soreness in his ankle and knee, but HC Andy Reid said on Friday that he should see his usual workload against the Raiders.

Browns RB Isaiah Crowell (hip, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 15. The full participation and probable tag are great signs for Crowell who was limited last week and saw fewer than half the touches as a result. He has a very good matchup with the Bengals, who are last in the league in RB aFPA. It also doesn’t hurt that Johnny Manziel represents a serious running threat from the quarterback position.

Texans RB Arian Foster (groin, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 15. Foster appears to be all systems go for a good matchup against the Colts. He has averaged 123 rushing yards and 1.0 TD in his last three games against Indianapolis.

Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (ankle, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 15. Gerhart likely takes over as the lead back for Jacksonville with Denard Robinson out for the year with a mid-foot sprain. The team said that Jordan Todman and Storm Johnson will also play, so it’s tough to get too excited about Gerhart in a bad matchup with Baltimore.

Redskins RB Roy Helu (toe, out) took limited practice reps again Friday and is out for Week 15. Alfred Morris could see some extra work on passing downs with Helu out.

Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (foot, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 15. Hillman’s return shouldn’t threaten C.J. Anderson’s status as the team’s primary running back.

Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 15. We like Johnson given the revenge narrative in this week’s game against his old team. Beat writer Rich Cimini wrote “Johnson will be highly motivated for this game. He's been talking about it since he signed nine months ago.” It doesn’t hurt that he has averaged 15.0 touches in his last three games, and the matchup is great — Tennessee is #28 in RB aFPA.

Friday, December 12, 2014, 6:26pm

Packers RB Eddie Lacy (hip, probable) took limited practice reps all week and is probable for Week 15. Lacy is now considered likely to play against the Bills. It’s a homecoming game for James Starks (born in Niagra Falls, NY), and we’re expecting Starks to see more than the usual five or so carries this week due to Lacy’s injury.

Friday, December 12, 2014, 6:26pm

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back, probable) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice and is probable for Week 15. No worries here. Lynch has averaged 132 total yards and 2.0 TD in his last three regular season home games against the 49ers. He also racked up 109 rushing yards and a TD against the 49ers in last year’s playoffs.

Friday, December 12, 2014, 6:26pm

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (ankle, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 15. This looks like a game-time decision, and the Chargers play late on Sunday. If Mathews is unable to play, look for Branden Oliver to lead the team in carries — he has 23 in the last four games compared to Donald Brown’s three — though Brown has been playing extensively on passing downs. The matchup against Denver isn’t appealing.

Eagles RB Chris Polk (ankle, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 15.

Friday, December 12, 2014, 6:26pm

Buccaneers RB Bobby Rainey (ankle, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 15. The Tampa backfield is a mess and Rainey’s return makes it even messier.
