Pettine not ruling Browns LB Dansby out for Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:58 pm ET) Browns linebacker Karlos Dansby would need to be a fast healer to return to action Sunday in Buffalo, but Mike Pettine has not ruled him out. The timetable was 3-4 weeks when he injured his knee in Week 11, but he had been deemed only doubtful heading into the Week 12 game in Atlanta.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:54 pm ET) Vikings offensive tackle Phil Loadholt has confirmed that he is set to have surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle. He added that he will remain with the team the rest of the season.

Loadholt sustained the injury against the Packers in Week 12.


Dolphins welcome TE Clay, CB Finnegan back to work
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:48 pm ET) Dolphins tight end Charles Clay and cornerback Cortland Finnegan both participated in practice Wednesday, which bodes well for their possible return to game action Monday night against the host Jets.

Clay missed the Week 12 game with knee and hamstring issues. Finnegan has been out the last two games with an ankle injury.


Vikings' Zimmer expecting Sharrif Floyd to play Week 13
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:39 pm ET) Vikings coach Mike Zimmer indicated Wednesday he expects defensive lineman Sharrif Floyd to return to action Week 13 vs. Carolina. Floyd sat out Week 12 due to a knee injury. 

The second-year defensive lineman has 34 tackles (23 solo) and 3 1/2 sacks through 10 games.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:31 pm ET) The Titans have added rookie outside linebacker Chaz Sutton to their practice squad. He had been released by the Redskins in early September.

Giants safety Antrel Rolle excused from practice Wednesday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:31 pm ET) Giants safety Antrel Rolle was excused from practice Wednesday due to personal reasons. The Giants will play the Jaguars in Week 13.

Lewis: Bengals LB Burfict could return to practice this week
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:24 pm ET) A knee injury that has prevented Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict from playing since Oct. 26 has him out of practice again Wednesday. But Marvin Lewis has stated that he could return to a session later this week.

Burfict contributed to 29 tackles in five games before going down. Only a quick and successful return this week would give him a chance to playing more than on a limited basis Sunday at Tampa Bay.


Gruden: Colt McCoy to start Week 13, RG3 will be backup QB
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:10 pm ET) Redskins coach Jay Gruden confirmed in a conference call with Colts reporters Wednesday quarterback Robert Griffin III has been benched in favor of Colt McCoy for Sunday's game at Indianapolis. Gruden added Griffin will be the backup quarterback Week 13. 

"Colt (McCoy) is going to start this week at quarterback. I felt like he deserved a bit of a promotion," Gruden said.

McCoy will be facing a Colts defense yielding 249.4 passing yards per game. Indianapolis has also allowed 18 passing touchdowns, while recording nine interceptions and 28 sacks in 11 games.


Steelers CB Ike Taylor relieved now that he's back
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:52 am ET) Steelers veteran cornerback Ike Taylor has admitted at getting antsy over when he would return to action after missing eight games to a broken forearm. He is back at practice and should play Sunday against New Orleans.

"The first thing I thought about was how long until I get back," Taylor told the team website. "The first thing I asked the doctors was about the two long plates in my arm. He said you just broke your forearm, what do you know about the plates? I am not a doctor, but I stayed at a Holiday Inn. At the same time that is how it is. That's my mind frame, how long it's going to take to get back."

Taylor added, however, that he never feared the injury was career-threatening.


Pettine: Incident would not bench Browns QB Manziel
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:32 am ET) An incident early Saturday morning involving Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel, which prompted general manager Ray Farmer to criticize him for being out so late, will not prevent Mike Pettine from playing him if needed.

"Unless something unforeseen comes up, just given what I know, it would not have an impact on any decision to play him," Pettine told the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

Barring an injury to starter Brian Hoyer, who has guided the team to a 7-4 record and playoff contention despite personal inconsistencies, such a circumstance is unlikely to occur. Pettine said he "never considered" playing Manziel at all in Week 12 in Atlanta. But the coach did address the current situation with Manziel, who allegedly struck a man who claimed to be a big Browns fans and asked for a hug.

Manziel's party is claiming that he was accosted.

"I've had a talk with Johnny, as has (Farmer)," Pettine said. "I mean, he was very upfront and notivied us immediately what had occurred. But as far as in the building, he's been a true professional, he's done everything that's been asked of him - but obviously this is something that's unfortunate."
