Panthers list DeAngelo Williams as probable for Sunday's game
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:52 pm ET) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Falcons and is being listed as probable. 

Williams has missed the last three games for Carolina while dealing with a broken bone in his hand. He has 219 yards on 62 carries in six games this year.

Linebacker A.J. Klein is considered questionable for the game with an akle injury.

The Panthers are 3-point underdogs against Atlanta.


Saints release final injury report for Week 17 against the Bucs
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:41 pm ET) The Saints have listed tackle Terron Armstead (neck), defensive end Akiem Hicks (ankle) and safety Jamarca Sanford (hamstring) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Armstead and Sanford were unable to practice all week after missing Week 16 against the Falcons.

Hicks was only able to practice Friday on a limited basis.

The Saints are 4-point favorites for Sunday against Tampa Bay.


Browns' Brian Hoyer skips practice Friday; Connor Shaw to start?
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:30 pm ET) Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer was unable to practice Friday because of injuries to his right shoulder and biceps, according to the Associated Press. At this point it seems as if Hoyer is unlikely to play, leaving the door open for Connor Shaw to make his first career start.

Cleveland opened as a 7-point road underdog. The line has now moved to 10 points in favor of the Ravens.


Falcons list Jones, Jackson as questionable, White probable for Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:28 pm ET) Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (hip) and running back Steven Jackson (quad) have been deemed questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Jones was able to practice Friday for the first time in two weeks, despite playing through the hip injury in Week 16. Jackson was unable to practice most of the week, but was seen Friday doing limited work on the sidelines.

Wide receiver Roddy White is also listed as probable after practicing both Thursday and Friday.

The Falcons are 3 1/2-point favorites against Carolina Sunday.


Chiefs' Alex Smith will sit out finale with lacerated spleen
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:17 pm ET) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith has been diagnosed with a lacerated spleen, an injury that will keep him sidelined for his team's pivotal Week 17 divisional showdown against the Chargers, trainer Rick Burkholde told reporters, per ESPN.

Smith sustained the injury after taking a brutal hit to the abdomen against the Steelers in Week 16. He noticed the discomfort following the game, but did not believe it to be serious.

Smith will not need surgery, although his injury will require a six-week timetable which will virtually keep him out for the remainder of the season, if Kansas City advances to the playoffs. The Chiefs will need to win against the Chargers and have the Ravens and Texans lose in order to clinch a spot in the postseason.

Smith signed a five-year, $76 million contract before the start of the season. In 15 games, Smith passed for 3,265 yards with 18 touchdowns and six interceptions. For the second straight season, Chase Daniel will make a start in Week 17. Daniels completed 21 of 30 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown in a last-minute overtime loss to the Chargers in 2013, which clinched San Diego a playoff spot.

Kansas City opened as a 3-point home favorite. The line has moved to 3 1/2 points, as of Friday.


Nick Foles officially out, Bradley Fletcher questionable for Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:05 pm ET) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles will miss the final game of the season with a collarbone injury. It will be Foles' eighth straight game out after suffering the injury Nov. 2 against the Texans. 

Cornerback Bradley Fletcher is also questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants witha a hip injury.

Jordan Matthews (knee), Beau Allen (shoulder), Brandon Bair (knee), Trent Cole (hand), Mychal Kendricks (ankle), Chris Maragos (Hamstring) and Casey Matthews (non-injury related) are all considered probable for the game.

The Eagles are 3-point underdogs against the Giants Sunday.


Patriots' Jonas Gray skips practice on Friday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:05 pm ET) Patriots running back Jonas Gray, who was a limited participant Thursday with an ankle injury, was not spotted at practice Friday, leading up to New England's Week 17 showdown against the Bills, ESPN reports.

Gray carried the ball six times for 5 yards and a score in Week 16 against the Jets. He has 412 rushing yards this season. If he's unable to play, the team will likely turn to LeGarrette Blount and Shane Vereen to shoulder the rushing workload.

The Patriots opened as an 8 1/2-point favorite at home on Sunday. The line has dropped to 4 1/2 points, per Vegas Insider.


Falcons WR Julio Jones practices for first time since hip injury
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(11:44 am ET) Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones was seen at practice Friday, working in individual drills with teammate Roddy White for the first time since injuring his hip against the Packers in Week 15.

Jones had seven catches for 107 yards in Week 16 against the Saints without being able to practice all week. 

His official status for Sunday will be released later in the day. Jones has 1,535 yards and six touchdowns this year.


Raiders' Sparano: Latavius Murray can handle being a No. 1 guy
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11:21 am ET) During an interview with Sirius XM radio, Raiders interim coach Tony Sparano indicated that Latavius Murray could be the running back of the future, per Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. 

"Early in the season, it took us a while to figure that part of it out," Sparano said. "He's a guy that was hurt all year last year. Latavius has really come into his own, and I think he can handle the workload of being a No. 1 guy."

Murray has appeared in 14 games this season, rushing for 387 yards and two touchdowns on 72 attempts. He has rushed for 333 yards over the past four weeks and will look to end the season on a high note Sunday against Denver.

Oakland is 14-point underdog at Denver.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(11:10 am ET) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton may be out for the season following arthroscopic surgery to fight an infection, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Stanton was still recovering from an MCL sprain when the infection was discovered Wednesday and is believed to be from an outside medical treatment, according to Rapoport.

Stanton threw for 1,711 yards with seven touchdowns and five interceptions this year and was hoping to make a return for the playoffs.
