Player News
Lions WR Calvin Johnson puts in limited practice
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:30 pm ET) Lions wideout Calvin Johnson (ankle) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday ahead of his Week 16 visit to Chicago. Johnson has caught 23 balls for 357 yards and three touchdowns over the past three weeks, and is not expected to be limited in any way Sunday.

The Bears rank 31st in passing defense, giving up 272 yards per game. They've given up a league-high 33 passing touchdowns.

Detroit is favored by 6.5 or 7 points at Vegas sportsbooks.


Patriots WR Edelman, RB Blount dealing with injuries
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:30 pm ET) Two Patriots skill position players have suffered injuries that could affect their playing statuses for the Sunday game against the host Jets.

Wide receiver Julian Edelman was limited in practice Wednesday with a concussion, though it's unclear when it was sustained. He must pass protocol to be cleared for Week 16 action.

Running back LeGarrette Blount, meanwhile, has a hurt shoulder.


Browns QB Manziel on reported snubbings: 'Ridiculous'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:22 pm ET) Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel has called "ridiculous" a Fox Sports report that some teammates snubbed him during pregame introductions Sunday, per The Associated Press.

There have been rumblings much of the season that some Browns have little respect for Manziel, who has admitted that he didn't work particularly hard when he was a backup to Brian Hoyer.


Chargers QB Rivers misses practice, but should play in game
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:11 pm ET) Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers was absent from practice Wednesday with chest and back issues, but is expected to play Saturday at San Francisco.

'Pretty slim' chance Giants RB Rashad Jennings plays Sunday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:10 pm ET) Giants running back Rashad Jennings (ankle) expects to sit out practice Thursday for the second straight day, and his chances of playing Sunday at St. Louis are "pretty slim," reports ESPN.com. Rookie Andre Williams would start in Jennings' place. He's carried 42 times for 175 yards and a touchdown the past two weeks.

The website expects Orleans Darkwa to back up Williams and possibly play on passing downs.

Jennings reinjured his sprained right ankle on the first play from scrimmage Week 15. He's been a non-factor since the Nov. 30 loss at Jacksonville.

The Giants are 5-point underdogs at most Vegas sportsbooks.


Texans WR Johnson back on practice field Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:02 pm ET) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson has taken a step forward toward his goal of playing Sunday against Baltimore by practicing Wednesday.

He missed the Week 15 game against Indianapolis with a concussion.


Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams gets in limited practice
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3:56 pm ET) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams, who's missed two straight games with a hand injury, practiced on a limited basis Wednesday. Running back Jonathan Stewart averaged 21.5 touches the past two weeks, and his workload could take a hit if Williams returns.

Carolina hosts the Browns on Sunday.


Troubled DE Ray McDonald released by 49ers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:39 pm ET) Defensive end Ray McDonald has been released by the 49ers after a second assault charge had been levied against him in the last four months, per CSNBayArea.com. The latest are sexual assault allegations for which he is being investigated.

The team had stood by McDonald after the first incident, but apparently have lost faith in his innocence.

McDonald, who was finishing his eighth season with San Francisco and has started every game this year, ends 2014 with three sacks and having contributed to 39 tackles.


Harry Douglas among Falcons wideouts watching Wednesday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3:24 pm ET) Like starters Julio Jones (hip) and Roddy White (ankle), Falcons receiver Harry Douglas (foot) was held out of practice Wednesday. White and Douglas are expected to play Sunday at New Orleans, while Jones' status won't be decided until shortly before kickoff.

Normally the No. 3 receiver, Douglas started in Jones' place Week 15 and caught 10 passes for 131 yards. He figures to be targeted heavily Sunday if Jones sits out again.

The Falcons are 6-point underdogs at every major Las Vegas sportsbook.


Eye issue limits Packers RB Eddie Lacy on Wednesday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3:04 pm ET) Packers running back Eddie Lacy was limited in practice Wednesday due to an eye problem that coach Mike McCarthy said is not game-related, reports ESPN.com. Lacy is fully expected to start Sunday against the Buccaneers.

He has piled up 1,336 yards from scrimmage and 12 total touchdowns through 14 games.
