Report: Bears DE Young diagnosed with torn Achilles
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:37 pm ET) The preliminary diagnosis on Bears defensive end Willie Young is a torn Achilles tendon, a source has told Pro Football Talk.

He will undergo an MRI on Monday. He is certainly out of the season finale next Sunday and if it is a serious tear, it could affect his 2015 season as well.


Falcons WRs Roddy White, Harry Douglas combine for 102 yards
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6:36 pm ET) Falcons receivers Roddy White and Harry Douglas combined for 102 receiving yards in Sunday's win over New Orleans in Week 16.

White came down with six of the nine passes thrown in his direction for 55 yards. Douglas was targeted seven times and finished with four catches for 47 yards in a 30-14 victory.

Atlanta will face Carolina in Week 17. The winner will advance to the playoffs.


Lions PK Prater recovers from block to help Lions win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:34 pm ET) Lions placekicker Matt Prater had a 37-yard field goal attempt blocked Sunday against Chicago, but was otherwise fine. He nailed a 39-yarder in the third quarter, added a 30-yarder in the fourth and hit two extra points through the uprights.

Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham nails two field goals in win
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:32 pm ET) Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham made both of his field goal attempts as well as both of his extra points in Pittsburgh's 20-12 win over Kansas City.

Both of Suisham's field goals were from 23 yards out. He is now 27 for 30 on field goal attempts this year. 

The Steelers will take on the Bengals in Week 17. 


Bears PK Jay Feely all but shut out in Week 16
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:31 pm ET) Bears placekicker Jay Feely did little but sit on the sideline Sunday against Detroit. He was called upon for two extra points and hit them both, but attempted no field goals.

Martavis Bryant manages just one catch in Pittsburgh's win
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:29 pm ET) Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant had just one catch for 44 yards in Pittsburgh's 20-12 win over Kansas City. 

Bryant's only catch came in the first quarter when quarterback Ben Roethlisberger faked the run and threw a fade to the receiver on the right side.

This is Bryant's second consecutive week under 50 yards receiving.

Bryant will look to bounce back in Week 17 against the Bengals. He had four catches for 109 yards and a touchdown in their last game.


Colts QB Andrew Luck lifted in third quarter of blowout
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6:29 pm ET) Trailing 35-0 in the third quarter at Dallas, the Colts pulled franchise quarterback Andrew Luck and replaced him with Matt Hasselbeck. Luck hit 15 of 22 throws for a career-low 109 yards with two interceptions.

It was Luck's first game without a touchdown this season.

The Colts have wrapped up the AFC South, and don't want to put Luck at further risk of injury. He was hit five times by a fired-up Cowboys' defense.

Luck is scheduled to visit Tennessee in the regular-season finale.


Panthers PK Graham Gano misses long one Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:28 pm ET) Panthers placekicker Graham Gano blew his first field goal attempt wide right Sunday against Cleveland, but did boot through a 23-yarder later in the first quarter.

He also hit both extra point tries in the win.


Branden Oliver nothing special
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6:27 pm ET) For a two-week stretch in his first stint replacing Ryan Mathews earlier this year, Chargers running back Branden Oliver looked like a legitimate standout in Fantasy, rushing for 100 yards in back-to-back games with some receiving yards to boot. But he faded in the weeks thereafter, making it easy for the Chargers to go back to Mathews when he returned from a shoulder injury in Week 11.

Unfortunately, in the two weeks since Mathews went down with what may be a season-ending ankle injury, Oliver hasn't regained his form from those two 100-yard games, averaging 39.5 rushing yards and 36.0 receiving yards.

One difference is that Donald Brown, who was second on the depth chart coming into the year, is healthy now and cutting into Oliver's production. The two actually had a combined 20 carries Week 16 at San Francisco, but Brown got seven of them. As much the issue, though, is that the Chargers aren't playing from ahead as often as they were earlier in the season. The turn actually began in Week 7, which was also when Oliver's production slipped.

Obviously, if you're still in the hunt for a championship in your league but have major issues at running back, you won't find too many players who are their team's primary ball carrier on waivers this time of year. But Oliver shouldn't be a priority for any Fantasy owner right now, whether or not Mathews returns for Week 17.


Falcons' Julio Jones works past injured hip, racks up 107 yards
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6:26 pm ET) Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones told reporters following a 30-14 victory over New Orleans his injured hip is not 100 percent.

Jones shrugged off the injury and racked up 107 yards on seven catches. He was targeted eight times. Through 14 games, Jones has 1,535 receiving yards and six touchdowns.

He indicated he expects to play Week 17 against the Panthers. The winner clinches the NFC South division.
