Raiders QB Carr on Sparano: 'I love him to death'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:52 am ET) Raiders rookie Derek Carr is hoping to play well in the last two games for his current coach and perhaps the coach of the future.

Carr has been a rare bright spot on a 2-12 team. He has played for the dismissed Dennis Allen and for current coach Tony Sparano. The Raiders are expected to make plenty of changes in the offseason, but Carr hopes Sparano is not a casualty.

"Right now, I am focused on playing my heart out for [Sparano] because I love him," Carr told ESPN. "I love him to death. I love playing for him. He pushes the heck out of me, and I love it. That's how I like to be coached. ... Not knowing [what the future holds] is hard, but I am grateful that I do get to play for him now."


Eagles QB Matt Barkley feels 'light years ahead of last year'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:36 am ET) Eagles second-year quarterback Matt Barkley has thrown one pass this season and has not taken any first-team snaps in practice, reports Philly.com. But as the No. 2 quarterback behind Mark Sanchez, Barkley is an injury away from playing.

He said he feels ready, should that situation arise.

"I feel like I’ve grown a lot," Barkley told the webiste. "I have. My comfortability with the receivers and our personnel. The knowledge of the offense. I feel light years ahead of last year – that’s for sure."


Texans seem set to name Keenum starting QB for Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:17 am ET) The Texans appear destined to name Case Keenum as their starting quarterback for the Sunday game against the Giants, per CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

Keenum was waived by Houston in late October before re-signing on Monday. He could be considered a better candidate than Thad Lewis due to his participation in offseason and training camp.


Report: Reggie Wayne might play less in last two games
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9:52 am ET) With the Colts having locked up their division but unlikely to earn a first-round bye, receiver Reggie Wayne "might see less action" during the final two regular-season games, reports the Indianapolis Star. Wayne is playing with a torn triceps.

He played 52 snaps Week 15 after playing 63 the week before. If Wayne's snaps keep dropping, rookie Donte Moncrief and veteran Hakeem Nicks should see more playing time.

Moncrief played 37 snaps and Nicks 21 in last Sunday's win over Houston. The Colts visit Dallas on Sunday as 3-point underdogs.


Ravens RB Justin Forsett not on injury report
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9:33 am ET) Ravens running back Justin Forsett, who's dealt with a knee injury the past few weeks, is no longer on the injury report, reports the Baltimore Sun. "I feel good," he said.

"This is actually one of the best Wednesdays that I've had in a while. So, my body is feeling good, maintaining, feeling ready to go."

Forsett practiced fully Wednesday ahead of Sunday's visit to Houston. He has run for 1,128 yards and eight touchdowns and leads all running backs with 5.4 yards per carry.


Philip Rivers skipping practices so he can rest up for Saturday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9:24 am ET) Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has started 142 straight games, the second-longest active streak behind Eli Manning's 166. With San Diego on a short week before Saturday's game against the 49ers, Rivers missed practice Tuesday and Wednesday with chest and back injuries, though he did participate in a Wednesday morning walkthrough.

"I hate not practicing," he told ESPN.com. "But I think at some point you have to do what's best for me and the team. And practicing [Wednesday] wouldn't have been beneficial to moving toward Saturday."

Added Rivers about his playing status: "At this point in the week, I think there's no doubt."

If Rivers surprisingly sits out, backup Kellen Clemens would start. He went 4-5 as a starter with St. Louis last year.

"One of the reasons we brought Kellen in here is that he was very competitive last year, thrown into a tough situation," offensive coordinator Frank Reich told the website. "He played well against some really tough defenses. He's a very smart competitive guy."

The Chargers are 1-point underdogs at San Francisco.


Broncos promote S Josh Bush
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9:06 am ET) The Broncos elevated safety Josh Bush to the actie roster. The third-year pro had been on the team's practice squad for a month.

Eagles' Chris Polk gets first-team reps in practice
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Eagles running back Chris Polk received first-team reps in practice on Wednesday, according to CSNPhilly.com.

Polk opened practice with the starters and ran a couple of plays. LeSean McCoy watched the plays from the sideline. Following practice, McCoy stressed that it wasn't a big deal. "We rotate all the time," he said. "[Running back coach Duce Staley] pulled me out. [Darren] Sproles wasn't in either." Polk is coming off a three touchdown performance in Week 15. It's possible he could find his way into more playing time given the practice situation. 


Seahawks without three offensive lineman on Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) The Seahawks did not have three of their offensive linemen at practice on Wednesday, according to ESPN.

Max Unger, Russell Okung and J.R. Sweezy were all held out. Unger has missed the past four games due to an ankle and knee issue. He was able to practice last Friday, but did not play on Sunday. Okung is dealing with a bruised lung, but there's a chance he'll recover in time for Sunday's game. "[Okung is] going to have some stuff done [Thursday] that will let us know where he sits and all that," head coach Pete Carrol said. "He’s not out of the plan yet."

Sweezy is dealing with an ankle injury. His appearance on the injury report comes as somewhat of a surprise.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) The Lions have claimed cornerback Josh Thomas on waivers, according to the New York Post

Thomas was cut by the Jets on Tuesday, but found a new job quickly. He's played in three games this season, registering two tackles.
