Titans place RB Dexter McCluster on IR
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:53 pm ET) What was expected is now official - the Titans have placed running back Dexter McCluster on season-ending injured reserve.

McCluster is dealing with a knee injury sustained in Week 15 against the Jets. He finishes the year with 328 total yards.


Ron Rivera: QB Cam Newton 'on target' to start Sunday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:45 pm ET) Panthers coach Ron Rivera told reporters that quarterback Cam Newton did every drill in Thursday's practice and is "on target" to start Sunday against the Browns. Rivera indicated Newton probably will start but said he did not want to get ahead of himself and noted there's still a lot of time until kickoff.

Newton sustained two small fractures in his back when he was involved in a car crash nine days ago. On Wednesday he split reps with Derek Anderson, and on Thursday, Newton handled the bulk of the first-team snaps.

Newton has accounted for 19 touchdowns and 16 turnovers in 12 games. With Newton now fully expected to play, the Panthers have been installed as 3-point favorites at most Vegas sportsbooks.


Philip Rivers practices, expected to play Saturday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:27 pm ET) Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers (back, chest) returned to a full practice Thursday and is expected to play Saturday against the 49ers, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune. Rivers "didn't do cartwheels out there," the paper said, but he stood in the pocket and made throws.

Rivers has thrown one or zero touchdowns in five of his past six games. The Chargers are 1-point underdogs at San Francisco.


Ravens DE Canty gets thumbs-down again Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:23 pm ET) An ankle problem sidelined Ravens defensive end Chris Canty for the second straight practice Thursday. He has started each of the last six games, but it remains to be seen if he's available Sunday at Houston.

Canty has contributed to 30 tackles and has just a half-sack this year.


Chargers RB Ryan Mathews could miss last two games
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:13 pm ET) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews (ankle) missed his second straight practice Thursday ahead of Saturday's visit to San Francisco. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, it's unclear if Mathews will return during the regular season.

Running backs Branden Oliver and Donald Brown will carry the load against the 49ers, assuming Mathews sits out. Mathews has played in just six games this year.


Cam Newton: 'I'm fine either way it goes'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:03 pm ET) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said he's experienced no pain while practicing the past two days, but wouldn't say whether he expects to start Sunday against the Browns, reports the Associated Press. "I'm fine either way it goes," he said. "I don't want to be a distraction."

Newton suffered two small fractures in his lower back in a car crash nine days ago. He took most of the first-team reps Thursday, ahead of Derek Anderson. The Panthers likely won't announce a starter until Friday at the earliest.

"The truth of the matter is, whoever gets the start, the team is going to back 100 percent," Newton said.


Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray practices, but how much?
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:51 pm ET) Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray participated in the early part of practice for the second straight day Thursday, but it wasn't yet clear if he joined team drills after watching those Wednesday, reports the Dallas Morning News. Murray's left hand was wrapped.

He had surgery Monday to fix a broken bone in his hand. If Murray can't play Sunday against the Colts, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar would share backfield duties.

The Cowboys are 3-point favorites over the AFC South champs.


Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman returns Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:50 pm ET) Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman was back at practice Thursday after missing the last five games with a foot injury. He looked good running pass routes early in the session, per ESPN.

It remains to be seen if Hillman is healthy enough to play Monday night at Cincinnati.


Cam Newton dominates first-team reps Thursday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:33 pm ET) After splitting reps with Derek Anderson on Wednesday, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton dominated the first-team snaps at practice Thursday, reports NFL.com. The Associated Press said Newton "did not appear to have any problems throwing the ball and moved around well."

A car accident nine days ago left Newton with two fractures in his lower back. He sat out Week 15 and watched Anderson throw for 277 yards and a touchdown in a win over Tampa Bay.

Newton will address the media later on Thursday. Coach Ron Rivera has said he hopes to name a starter Friday for Sunday's game against Cleveland.


Peyton Manning leaves practice to get treatment on thigh
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:18 pm ET) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning stretched with the team Thursday, then left practice to get treatment on his injured thigh, reports the Denver Post. Manning had to leave the Week 15 win at San Diego due to the thigh injury but returned quickly and finished the game.

The paper said Manning went in for "normal treatment" and did not suffer a setback. "No reason for concern yet," the paper said, adding Manning is expected to practice Friday. ESPN.com called Manning's absence a "planned rest day."

Manning gets an extra day to prepare for Week 16 as Denver visits Cincinnati on Monday night. He has one touchdown pass over his past two games.

The Broncos are laying 3 or 3.5 points at Vegas sportsbooks.
