Giants LB Jameel McClain ready to roll
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:31 pm ET) Giants linebacker Jameel McClain is active for the game at St. Louis after being listed as probable with a knee injury. He has 101 tackles, 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble.

Giants announce Week 16 inactives
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:28 pm ET) The Giants declared running back Rashad Jennings (ankle), cornerback Jayron Hosley, tight end Jerome Cunningham, guard Adam Gettis, guard Eric Herman, linebacker James Davidson and defensive tackle Dominique Hamilton inactive for Sunday's game at St. Louis.

Saints RB Pierre Thomas exits Week 16 with rib injury
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2:26 pm ET) Saints running back Pierre Thomas exited Sunday's game against the Falcons in the first half with an injury to the ribs.

Thomas sustained the injury in the second quarter and was ruled questionable to return to the game, per the team's official website. He caught two of three targets for 24 yards before departing. 


Redskins give up some yards
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2:26 pm ET) The Redskins, who had allowed an average of 338.2 yards in their last nine games, gave up 495 to an explosive Eagles offense in Week 16. But they limited the visiting Eagles to 24 points, recording three sacks with one interception and one fumble recovery.

The Redskins DST finished with nine Fantasy points. It was its fourth straight game with less than 10. It has scored in double digits only four times all season.

Though the Redskins did a fine job of bending but not breaking in an upset victory, their DST remains a Fantasy unit best left for the most favorable matchups, which means it belongs on waivers for Week 17 against Dallas.


Falcons RB Steven Jackson departs with quad injury
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2:24 pm ET) Falcons running back Steven Jackson was forced out of Sunday's divisional clash at New Orleans in Week 16 with a quad injury.

Jackson sustained the injury in the second quarter and was escorted back to the locker room for further evaluation. He rushed for 9 yards on four carries and caught one pass for 14 yards before departing. His return is questionable.


Browns QB Manziel (hamstring) leaves Sunday game
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:23 pm ET) Browns ballyhooed rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel has been knocked out of the Sunday game at Carolina late in the second quarter.

Manziel took a hard hit to the shoulder after sprinting for no gain to the left sideline. He was down for a bit before trainers took him to the sideline, then to the locker room. They were checking his left leg. He has been deemed questionable to return with a hamstring injury

Previous starter Brian Hoyer replaced him.

Manziel struggled again during his stint against the Panthers. He completed just 3 of 8 for 32 yards.


Lack of big plays sinking Eagles DST
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2:13 pm ET) The Eagles weren't exactly crushed by the hosting Redskins in Week 16, allowing 27 points on 305 yards, but their DST once again fell short in Fantasy, scoring eight points in standard CBSSports.com leagues. It was its third straight game with less than 10 points.

It was its fourth straight game without a touchdown, which is notable since the Eagles DST scored 10 touchdowns in its first 11 games. It was also big on sacks early in the year but had only two in this one to go along with an interception and a fumble recovery.

The Eagles DST has proven to be a unit that's dependent on big plays for its Fantasy production. Big plays can lead to big points, but they're awfully hard to predict from week to week. The Giants have allowed their share this season -- the Eagles sacked quarterback Eli Manning eight times when the teams last met in Week 6 -- so the Eagles DST remains a viable Fantasy option despite its lackluster production of late.


Jets C Nick Mangold carted off with left ankle injury
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:59 pm ET) Jets center Nick Mangold was carted off the field with a left ankle injury during the second quarter of Sunday's contest against New England. Mangold went down after being rolled up by Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork. He was unable to put any weight on his leg, and was taken back to the locker room on a cart for further testing.

The Jets will likely provide an update on the extent of his injury in the near future.


Texans RG Brandon Brooks leaves game with ankle injury
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1:54 pm ET) Texans guard Brandon Brooks suffered a left ankle injury and had to leave Sunday’s game against the Ravens.

The team reported his return is questionable. Offensive lineman  Derek Newton replaced Brooks at right guard.


Buccaneers linebacker Mason Foster leaves with Achilles injury
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1:33 pm ET) Buccaneers linebacker Mason Foster injured his Achilles tendon and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Packers.
