NFL Recent Player News
|11/24/2015||Danny Amendola, NE, WR|
|Amendola's injury doesn't appear serious.
Analysis: Amendola suffered a knee sprain Monday and isn't expected to miss time.
|11/24/2015||Mario Williams, Buf, DE|
|Williams is uncertain for Sunday's game against Kansas City.
Analysis: Williams has a foot injury.
|11/24/2015||Tyrod Taylor, Buf, QB|
|Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan says Taylor should be healthy enough to play against Kansas City on Sunday.
Analysis: Taylor's status was a concern. Though he finished Monday's game against New England, he was hampered by an injury to his right shoulder in the final quarter.
|11/24/2015||Josh McCown, Cle, QB|
|Coach Mike Pettine said Josh McCown will start Monday night's game against Baltimore in place of Johnny Manziel, who was recently handed the starting job but couldn't keep it while the team had a week off.
Analysis: McCown gets the nod even though the 22-year-old Manziel has shown progress on the field during his second NFL season. However, despite saying he had learned from his past, Manziel, who spent 70 days during the offseason in a rehab facility specializing in alcohol and drug treatment, he has not shown the maturity the Browns are looking for from their quarterback.
|11/24/2015||Kevin White, Chi, WR|
|The Chicago Bears opened a three-week practice window for White to determine if they will activate him this season. White, the No. 7 pick in this year's draft, has spent the season on the physically unable to perform list because of a stress fracture in his left shin. The Bears have until the end of this 21-day period, which began Tuesday, to place the West Virginia standout on the active roster or season-ending injured reserve.
Analysis: The Bears saw him as a potential starter with Alshon Jeffery. But White started experiencing pain in his shin in June during organized team activities. He had surgery in August after therapy failed to cure his discomfort.
|11/24/2015||Johnny Manziel, Cle, QB|
|Manziel partied his way out of the lineup during Cleveland's bye week. Browns coach Mike Pettine benched the polarizing quarterback on Monday for his off-field behavior, a move that could signal Manziel's days with the team are numbered.
Analysis: Pettine said Josh McCown will start Monday night's game against Baltimore in place of Manziel, who was recently handed the starting job but couldn't keep it while the team had a week off. Manziel's benching comes in the wake of a video surfacing of him partying last weekend in Texas. He had promised not to bring any embarrassment to the team during its week off, but Pettine said he was both disappointed and frustrated by Manziel's actions.
|11/24/2015||Charles Clay, Buf, TE|
|Clay sustained a neck injury in Monday's night loss to New England.
Analysis: Clay's status wasn't immediately known.

|11/24/2015||Aaron Dobson, NE, WR|
|Dobson suffered an ankle injury in Monday night's win.
Analysis: His status is uncertain at this point.
|11/23/2015||Charcandrick West, KC, RB|
|West suffered a hamstring injury and was forced to leave Sunday's 33-3 win at San Diego.
Analysis: West was ineffective with 16 yards on 11 carries. After he left, Spencer Ware was much better with 96 yards and two touchdowns on 11 attempts. This could pose an issue for West, who is considered day to day.
|11/23/2015||Tyler Eifert, Cin, TE|
|Eifert has been a touchdown machine this season, scoring twice more Sunday night in a loss to the Cardinals.
Analysis: Eifert has 11 touchdowns after scoring twice over his previous two seasons.
|11/23/2015||Giovani Bernard, Cin, RB|
|Bernard only had 18 rushing yards Sunday night, but he made up for it by finishing with eight catches for 128 yards against the Cardinals.
Analysis: Bernard is probably ahead of Jeremy Hill right now in Cincinnati's frustrating backfield.
|11/23/2015||Philip Rivers, SD, QB|
|Rivers completed 19 of 30 passes for 178 yards with one interception in the Chargers' 33-3 loss to Kansas City on Sunday.
Analysis: Rivers' performance was his worst of the season. He's dealing with a slew of injuries to his receivers.
|11/23/2015||Jeremy Hill, Cin, RB|
|Hill rushed for 45 yards and two scores in Sunday night's loss to Arizona.
Analysis: Hill continues to drive owners batty. He hasn't rushed for more than 63 yards in a game all season and the touchdowns were his first since Week 4.
|11/23/2015||Carson Palmer, Ari, QB|
|Palmer completed 20 of 31 passes for 317 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday night's win over Cincinnati.
Analysis: Palmer led the Cardinals on the winning drive that result in Chandler Catanzaro's 32-yard field goal with two seconds remaining.
|11/23/2015||Alex Smith, KC, QB|
|Smith completed 20 of 25 passes for 253 yards in the Chiefs' 33-3 win at San Diego on Sunday.
Analysis: Smith hasn't thrown an interception for seven straight games, but he's only tossed six TDs over that stretch. He's a steady force for the Chiefs offense but rarely puts up big fantasy numbers.
|11/23/2015||Andy Dalton, Cin, QB|
|Dalton threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's 34-31 loss to Arizona.
Analysis: Dalton bounced back nicely after struggling in a 10-6 loss to Houston in Week 10. The Bengals, though, have lost back-to-back games.
|11/23/2015||Patrick Peterson, Ari, CB|
|Peterson left Sunday's game late with an ankle injury.
Analysis: His status will be updated at a later time.
|11/23/2015||Frostee Rucker, Ari, DT|
