Week 16 Essential NFL Practice News & Notes for Friday

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (right shoulder) took full practice reps all week. Bortles is a Sneaky Start given a juicy matchup with the Titans’ 32nd-ranked pass defense (in QB aFPA).


Patriots QB Tom Brady (thigh, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 16. Brady will be fine for Saturday’s game against the Jets.


Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger/right hand) took full practice reps all week. Carr will be fine to face the Colts.


Bears QB David Fales (right thumb, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 16.


Rams QB Jared Goff (concussion) took full practice reps all week. Goff will start Week 16. He has a fantastic matchup with the 49ers.


Colts QB Andrew Luck (right shoulder, right thumb) took full practice reps again Friday. He will be out there against the Raiders.


Redskins QB Colt McCoy (illness, questionable) missed practice Friday and is questionable for Week 16.


Panthers QB Cam Newton (right shoulder) took full practice reps again Friday. Newton will be able to play through the shoulder injury as he did last week.


Jets QB Bryce Petty (chest) took full practice reps all week. Petty will start against the Patriots. It’s good news for Robby Anderson, who has 240 yards and two touchdowns over the last three weeks.


Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (calf) took full practice reps all week. Rodgers is no longer listed on the injury report, so he’s good to go to face the Vikings. He should be more mobile than last week.


Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (not injury related) was removed from the injury report Friday. Big Ben is locked in as a quality QB1 since the Ravens will be without top corner Jimmy Smith.


Cowboys QB Mark Sanchez (not injury related) missed practice Friday.


Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (foot, hip) took full practice reps all week. Siemian will try to bounce back after a poor outing against the Patriots.


Lions QB Matthew Stafford (finger/right hand) took full practice reps again Friday. Stafford will be fine to face the Cowboys.
