Bengals RB Jeremy Hill (knee, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 17. There’s no reason for Jeremy Hill to play other than to tough it out. The team promoted Tra Carson from the practice squad, so it looks like Rex Burkhead will serve as the lead back against the Ravens.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) goes on IR

Bengals.com - [Full Article]

The IR designations of tight end Tyler Eifert (back) and left guard Clint Boling (shoulder), who both missed Saturday night’s game in Houston, leave two open spots on the 53-man roster for the game against the Ravens (1 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 12) at Paul Brown Stadium.

Both have been hurt for much of the year. Eifert didn’t play the first six games with torn ankle ligaments and a back issue.

Fantasy Impact:

It’s a tough break for Eifert. It means his break-out year of 2015 with 13 touchdown catches is bracketed by two seasons he missed 23 of 32 games with injury. He still has five TD catches in eight games this season, one behind club-leader Brandon LaFell’s six.

Ravens WR Steve Smith ACTIVE vs. Steelers

Sunday, December 25, 2016, 3:13pm

Ravens Inactives
Brennen Beyer LB
Crockett Gillmore TE
Ryan Jensen OG
Alex Lewis OG
Lamar Louis LB
Jimmy Smith CB
Javorius Allen RB

Related players: Steve L. Smith

Fantasy Impact:

Smith is a go today as expected. Like we pointed out this week, he hasn't cracked 60 yards receiving since Week 11.

Friday, December 23, 2016, 5:51pm

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.

Friday, December 23, 2016, 5:51pm

Ravens WR Steve L Smith (thigh, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 16. Smith is good to go to face the Steelers, though he hasn’t cracked 60 yards since Week 11.

Thursday, December 22, 2016, 6:27pm

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (not injury related) was removed from the injury report Thursday. Big Ben is good to face the Ravens, who will likely be without star CB Jimmy Smith.

Thursday, December 22, 2016, 6:27pm

Ravens WR Steve L Smith (thigh) was added to the injury report Thursday after taking limited practice reps. Smith should be okay to play, but this does qualify as a midweek downgrade. Stay tuned.

Thursday, December 22, 2016, 6:27pm

Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) missed practice again Thursday. Green looks doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. If he can’t play, look for Jesse James to see an increase in snaps, though he wasn’t very involved earlier in the season other than the occasional touchdown.

Wednesday, December 21, 2016, 6:42pm

Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) did not practice Wednesday. Green looks doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. If he can’t play, look for Jesse James to see an increase in snaps.

Skins TE Jordan Reed ACTIVE vs. Panthers

Monday, December 19, 2016, 7:20pm

Redskins Inactives
Will Compton ILB
Su'a Cravens ILB
Matt Jones RB
Kory Lichtensteiger C
Vinston Painter OT
Rashad Ross WR
Nate Sudfeld QB

Related players: Jordan Reed

Fantasy Impact:

Reed is active despite not being 100-percent with a shoulder issue. The hope is he's more active than the one catch he had last week against the Eagles - in what was a tough matchup. This week it's a much more friendly matchup against the Panthers on Monday night. Vernon Davis will likely see some time as well.

Eagles expect back RB Darren Sproles; RB Kenjon Barner out

Monday, December 19, 2016, 4:48pm

NJ.com - [Full Article]

Running back Darren Sproles will be back when the Eagles host the Giants on Thursday Night Football.

Kenjon Barner, who replaced Spoles in Sunday's 27-26 loss to the Ravens, is out. And offensive lineman Allen Barbre, well, his status seems to be up in the air.

Sproles, who missed the loss to the Ravens while he was in concussion protocol, has been cleared according to Eagles head coach Doug Pederson.

"He's good to go,'' Pederson, who also ruled out Barner with a hamstring injury, said. "(Barner) is going to miss the game. Being Thursday night, he's not going to make back.''

Related players: Ryan Mathews, Byron Marshall

Fantasy Impact:

The Eagles have missed Sproles in the passing game as well as on punt returns. He'll also serve as a change of pace back, although Ryan Mathews is coming off an impressive performance against the Ravens. Sproles could take away carries from Byron Marshall.

Week 15 MNF Injury Report - Jordan Reed, Kelvin Benjamin qestionable

Saturday, December 17, 2016, 5:01pm

CAROLINA Panthers at WASHINGTON Redskins on Monday night
PANTHERS
OUT
DE Charles Johnson (hamstring), T Daryl Williams (ankle)

QUESTIONABLE
WR Kelvin Benjamin (back), LB Luke Kuechly (concussion), LB David Mayo (concussion), QB Cam Newton (right shoulder)

REDSKINS
OUT
S Su'a Cravens (upper arm, illness)

DOUBTFUL
LB Will Compton (knee)

Fantasy Impact:

For the Panthers, QB Cam Newton and WR Kelvin Benjamin are questionable. We reported earlier today that Newton is expected to play despite the tag. Benjamin practiced fully on Saturday which should be a good sign he'll be a go. For the Redskins, Jordan Reed is questionable. After playing last week, Reed should be OK to play on Monday night. Having Vernon Davis as a handcuff would be an ideal situation for fantasy owners, just in case.

Friday, December 16, 2016, 6:08pm

Eagles RB Darren Sproles (concussion, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 15. Sproles will sit against the Ravens. It looks like Ryan Mathews may carry the load in a tough matchup, but Kenjon Barner is likely to see an increase in touches as well.
