Report: Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald unlikely to play Week 12
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:58 am ET) NFL.com National Insider Ian Rapoport said Sunday morning "it would take a miracle" for Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald to play Sunday against the Seahawks.

Fitzgerald missed practice all week due to a sprained MCL in his left knee. He is listed as questionable. John Brown is listed as Fitzgerald's backup on the team's depth chart.


Jets' Eric Decker admits 'it's hard to watch' former team
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:46 am ET) Jets wide receiver Eric Decker indicated this week it's difficult to watch his former team -- the Broncos -- since they continue to enjoy a successful run, according to the New York Daily News.

"Honestly, sometimes it’s hard to watch them when they’re playing," Decker said. "When they’re clicking on all cylinders, they’re a tough football team. They got the right pieces."

Decker also commented on the success of wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, who was signed in free agency to replace Decker. Sanders has totaled 67 catches for 954 yards and seven touchdowns through 10 games.

"Emmanuel Sanders is playing well in my spot, so to speak," Decker said. "Sometimes, you know, it’s tough to see all the success. But that’s football. It’s going to go in swings. Who says we can’t be a great football team? We got to obviously do some right things to get there, but I’m happy for Peyton and Demaryius (Thomas). I respect them so much. They’re all good friends, so I like to see them do well, but sometimes it’s hard."


Report: Bucs' Sims, Martin will play Week 12 at Chicago
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:34 am ET) Buccaneers running back Charles Sims (ankle) and running back Doug Martin (ankle) will play Sunday against the Bears, barring a setback, according to NFL.com National Insider Ian Rapoport. Both players are listed as questionable for Week 12.

Zimmer: Peterson likely to return to Vikings after reinstatement
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:27 am ET) Vikings coach Mike Zimmer believes running back Adrian Peterson will return to the team when he's reinstated by the NFL, according to ESPN. Peterson has been suspended for the rest of the season following a plea deal in his child abuse case and has been told he will not be reconsidered for reinstatement before April 15 for his violation of the league's personal conduct policy.

"I think Adrian wants to be back here," Zimmer said. "You have to ask him. I don't know. But I know he does have an awful lot of people here who have supported him, and I don't know who he's speaking of who doesn't. All I know of Adrian is that he's always been great with me, always done what I've asked him to do, and I kind of go by what I see."

However, in an exclusive interview with USA Today on Thursday, Peterson hinted that he hasn't received support from some within the Vikings organization and playing for a different team is a possibility.

"I know who loves me. The coaches and the players, it's not going to be a problem. I've felt so much support from those guys," Peterson said. "The organization, I know there's people in the organization that support me and there's people that I know internally that has not been supporting me. Maybe it's best for me to get a fresh start somewhere else.

"I would love to go back and play in Minnesota to get a feel and just see if my family still feels comfortable there. But if there's word out that, hey, they might release me, then so be it. I would feel good knowing that I've given everything I had in me."

Peterson will have his appeal of the suspension heard Dec. 2. If he loses the appeal, he might explore his legal options and seek damages for missing the season, according to NFL.com National Insider Ian Rapoport.


Report: Benching RG3 is 'not out of the question'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:14 am ET) Redskins coach Jay Gruden has the authority to bench quarterback Robert Griffin III, if his play isn't good enough, according to NFL.com National Insider Ian Rapoport. A source told Rapoport that benching Griffin is "not out of the question."

The landscape has changed for RG3 and there are no more special rules for him, including his family having all-access to the team's facilities. 

However, the Redskins will try to make it easy on Griffin during Sunday's game against the 49ers. The game plan is for Griffin to make quick throws to the team's playmakers. They want to give Griffin easy reads, so he can get rid of the football quickly. They have tinkered with the game plan all week, according to Rapoport.

Team sources said Gruden received support from upper management on his critical assessment of Griffin's play.

"He's auditioned long enough," Gruden told NFL Network recently. "Clock's ticking. He's gotta play. We'll see. ... We want Robert to excel, we really do. But the last two games, it hasn't been very good, anywhere. We gotta play better around him. And the biggest thing for us as play-callers, and for him, we just have to come together and jell with plays he's comfortable with. That takes time. But we don't have a lot of time."


Report: Vikings RB Ben Tate will be active and have role Week 12
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:00 am ET) Vikings running back Ben Tate will be active and have a role on offense Sunday against the Packers, a source told NFL Network. Tate joined the Vikings just four days ago after being claimed off waivers from the Browns.

The Vikings' backfield is banged up heading into Week 12. Running back Matt Asiata will be sidelined due to a concussion, while running back Jerick McKinnon is listed as probable due to a lower back injury.


Report: Dolphins RB Lamar Miller will play at Denver
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:53 am ET) Dolphins running back Lamar Miller will play Sunday at Denver despite knee and shoulder injuries, a source told The Miami Herald.

Miller practiced in full Wednesday before being a limited participant Thursday and Friday. He is listed as questionable.


Ruling on Ray Rice's reinstatement expected early this week
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:46 am ET) A ruling on running back Ray Rice's reinstatement is expected early this week, according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Rice is serving an indefinite suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

Rice's appeal of an indefinite suspension has been under review for 10 days. The judge's ruling is expected before Thanksgiving, with it possibly happening Monday.

Even if Rice is reinstated, he has been advised teams might shy away from him in the current climate. A return in 2015, however, could still be a possibility.


Broncos TE Julius Thomas unlikely to play Week 12
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:35 am ET) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas is unlikely to play Week 12 vs. Miami due to a sprained left ankle, sources told CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Thomas is listed as questionable after missing practice all week.

Report: Browns' Josh Gordon to line up for 20-30 plays Sunday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:29 am ET) Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon is expected to be on the field for 20-30 plays during his season debut Sunday against the Falcons, a league source told ESPN. 

Gordon is expected to start or rotate in quickly, according to NFL.com. The Browns are open to more reps, if Gordon is feeling good.

Gordon is returning from a 10-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. He spent the last 11 weeks working out on his own. He did attend team meetings, but he couldn't participate in on-field team activities until this past week, when he practiced with the team for the first time since August.
