Vikings coach Zimmer: RB Matt Asiata still in concussion protocol
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3:25 pm ET) Vikings coach Mike Zimmer told reporters that running back Matt Asiata is still going through the league's concussion protocol, per the Star Tribune. Asiata suffered the injury in Week 10 and was unable to play on Sunday vs. Green Bay.

Asiata has rushed for 279 yards and six touchdowns this season. He will need to be medically cleared by a independent neurologist in order to play Week 13 against the Panthers.


Redskins have 'high hopes' Trent Williams will play Sunday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3:25 pm ET) Redskins coach Jay Gruden told reporters Monday he has ‘high hopes’ offensive tackle Trent Williams will be available to play Sunday at Indianapolis.

Williams was inactive during Washington’s Week 12 loss to San Francisco after suffering an MCL sprain and an ankle sprain the previous week.


Doug Baldwin showing his limitations
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3:25 pm ET) When the Seahawks traded wide receiver Percy Harvin to the Jets prior to Week 7, the natural assumption was that Doug Baldwin would inherit a lot of his looks. And that's exactly what happened that first week at St. Louis, when Baldwin caught seven passes for 123 yards and a touchdown.

But his numbers have steadily waned since that season-best performance. He hit a new low Week 12 against Arizona, catching just two passes for 6 yards. Worse yet, those were his only two targets on the day.

Baldwin has had less than 50 receiving yards in four straight games, averaging 4.3 catches for 30.0 yards during that stretch. The good news is no other Seahawks wide receiver has really stepped up during that time. The bad news is quarterback Russell Wilson has averaged just 185.0 passing yards and has done his best to divide it between as many targets as possible.

Because he's the most notable player in the Seahawks receiving corps, Baldwin is still capable of delivering a big game, but with the direction the Seahawks offense has taken in recent weeks, you should no longer expect it, not even when he has a favorable matchup. His matchup couldn't be any less favorable Week 13 at San Francisco.


Bengals waiting on long-term prognosis for tackle Andre Smith
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:20 pm ET) Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said Monday he doesn't yet know the long-term prognosis on tackle Andre Smith, who left Sunday's game at Houston with a triceps injury, according to ESPN.

Redskins LB E.J. Biggers going through concussion protocol
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3:17 pm ET) Redskins coach Jay Gruden told reporters on Monday that cornerback E.J. Biggers is going through concussion protocol, per the team's official website. Biggers left Week 12 with the injury and will need to be medically cleared by an independent neurologist in order to play Week 13.

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will start Sunday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3:16 pm ET) Despite struggling since coming back from a dislocated ankle, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said quarterback Robert Griffin III will start Sunday at Indianapolis.

Gruden is not pleased with the offense’s lack of production and said the entire offense will be evaluated to find areas of improvement.

The Redskins have scored a total of 20 points over the last two games and Griffin has yet to throw multiple touchdown passes in a game this season.


Redskins CB Tracy Porter (shoulder) could miss significant time
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:14 pm ET) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Monday cornerback Tracy Porter could miss significant time due to an AC joint injury he suffered Sunday against the 49ers. Porter has appeared in three games this season, totaling five tackles (three solo) and one pass defense.

Vikings confirm RT Phil Loadholt's season-ending injury
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3:13 pm ET) Vikings coach Mike Zimmer confirmed right tackle Phil Loadholt's injury on Monday, per the Star Tribune. Loadholt suffered a torn pectoral muscle during Sunday's loss to the Packers in Week 12. He will have season-ending surgery on Friday.

Redskins coach Gruden: LB Adam Hayward will be placed on IR
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3:11 pm ET) Redskins linebacker Adam Hayward will be placed on the season-ending injured reserve list with tibial plateau fracture, coach Jay Gruden confirmed to the media on Monday, per the team's official website.

Hayward left Week 12 in the third quarter with the injury. His season ends with 13 total tackles.


Drew Stanton comes back down to earth
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3:10 pm ET) If Drew Stanton's performance Week 11 against Detroit, when he threw for 306 yards and two touchdowns, got Fantasy owners thinking the Cardinals wouldn't really miss Carson Palmer at quarterback, his performance Week 12 at Seattle was a dose of reality. He threw for just 149 yards and an interception.

Granted, it was against one of the league's best defenses, but still, it was closer to what you'd expect from a career backup. So in five starts between two different injuries for Palmer, Stanton has had two games in which he's offered relevant Fantasy production. In the other three, he's fallen well short -- perhaps even embarrassingly short considering his receiving corps.

When ranking all 32 starting quarterbacks for Fantasy purposes, he may not be at the very bottom, but he's not far off. Most likely, even owners in two-quarterback leagues will want to pass on him.
