by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:42 pm ET) The Browns have officially promoted rookie quarterback Connor Shaw from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster on Saturday, according to FOX Sports Ohio. With Brian Hoyer (shoulder, biceps) doubtful and Johnny Manziel (hamstring) on injured reserve, Shaw will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's season finale against the Ravens.

Cleveland opened as a 7-point road underdog. The line has now moved to 13 1/2 points in favor of the Ravens.


Saints TE Jimmy Graham on injured shoulder: It 'was a battle every game'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11:23 am ET) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham acknowledged that playing with a bum shoulder "was a battle every game," according to the Times-Picayune. Graham told reporters Friday he may need offseason shoulder surgery, depending on the results on an MRI exam, which he'll undergo as soon as the season comes to an end.

Graham injured his shoulder Week 5 against Tampa Bay but returned two weeks later without missing any game action. He has clearly not been the same since the injury and was on a snap count his first two games back.

"I'm not going to make any excuses for it," Graham said. "I think everyone plays hurt in this league. That's just a part of the job."

Graham has the fewest receiving yards since his rookie year in 2010. He needs 165 yards in Sunday's season finale against Tampa Bay in order to surpass the 1,000-yard threshold for the second consecutive season.

(10:02 am ET) The Vikings announced a pair of roster moves on Saturday, according to the Star Tribune. The team placed rookie linebacker Anthony Barr on injured reserve with a knee injury and signed linebacker Josh Kaddu to the 53-man active roster. Kaddu was previously on the practice squad.

Barr's season comes to an end with 70 combined tackles, four sacks, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in 12 games.


Report: Chargers hold workout for Austin Pettis
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) The Chargers held a workout for former Rams wideout Austin Pettis, according to ESPN.

Pettis was cut by St. Louis in October, and hasn't hooked on with a team just yet. The Chargers are dealing with a number of injuries at the receiver position, and are looking to sign Pettis as depth. Pettis caught 12 passes for 118 yards and a touchdown before he was cut. 


Report: Chargers punter Mike Scifres could end up on IR
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) Chargers punter Mike Scifres could wind up going on injured-reserve, according to FoxSports.

Scifres is progressing from a shoulder injury, but the team is pressed for roster spots. Scifres has already missed two games due to the injury, and was ruled out of for the team's regular season finale. The Chargers need to add a center to the active roster, and Scifres could be in danger of losing his spot so the team can add another lineman. 


Saints' Marques Colston reflects on down year
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) Saints wideout Marques Colston reflected on his less than stellar season on Friday, according to the New Orleans Advocate.

Colston, who rarely gives interviews, expressed his frustrations with the season. He's currently on pace to register his second-lowest yardage total in his nine seasons, and needs one touchdown in order to avoid setting a career-low in the category. Colston admitted the struggles got to him during the year. "It’s not a secret I didn’t play up to my own standards," he said. "I’ve got to live with that." He added, "I pride myself on trying to be part of the solution. Instead this year, I feel like I was part of the problem at times."

Colston did not want to address his future in New Orleans, instead opting to look forward to the team's final game this Sunday.


Marshawn Lynch among Seahawks' probables
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is listed as probable for Week 17 against the Rams.

Lynch was listed on the injury report with a back injury, but has been able to battle through the issue all season. He did not practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but was able to put in a full practice on Friday.

The team should also have Tony Moeaki and Russell Okung. Both players were listed as probable on the final injury report. 

Cooper Helfet, Chris Matthews, Tharold Simon and Max Unger are listed as questionable, and will be game-time decisions. 

Both Demarcus Dobbs and Jermaine Kearse have already been ruled out for the contest.
