Eagles' Zach Ertz: Ruled out for Thursday's contest
With only three days to recover from a concussion suffered Sunday versus the Buccaneers, Ertz was able to progress to a limited showing in Wednesday's practice, according to Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Eagles' Ryan Mathews: Ruled out for Thursday's game
Ryan Mathews (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's game in Detroit.
Mathews has made little progress in his quest through the concussion protocol, leaving the Philadelphia Eagles to trust in DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles, and, to a lesser extent, Kenjon Barner out of the backfield. His next chance to take the field arrives on Dec. 6 at New England.
Bills' Marcus Thigpen: Signed by Bills
The Buffalo Bills have signed Marcus Thigpen .
With Leodis McKelvin having some issues holding on to the ball as a punt returner of late, and Boom Herron and Denarius Moore having been let go by the team, Thigpen will once again join the Bills' return mix in advance of Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Denarius Moore: Let go by Bills
The Bills have released Denarius Moore .
Moore, who did not catch a pass in six games with the Bills this season, will now look to catch on elsewhere as a depth wideout/return option.
Bills' Dan Herron: Released by Bills
The Buffalo Bills have released Dan Herron .
With fellow running backs LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams healthy these days, Herron was deemed expendable by the Bills. He'll now look to catch on with a team in need of some backfield depth at this time.
Panthers' Ted Ginn: Probable for Thursday
Ginn emerged from Week 11 with a knee injury, but it was revealed to be slight due to his ability to practice in full both Tuesday and Wednesday. He currently ranks second among
Broncos' Christian Ponder: Set to sign with Broncos
The Denver Broncos plan to sign Christian Ponder , NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
With Peyton Manning out, initially Ponder will work as the team's No. 3 QB as he learns the team's offense. For now, he'll slot in behind Brock Osweiler and Trevor Siemian.
Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Still in first phase of concussion protocol
Devonta Freeman won't take part in practice Wednesday, as he remains in the first phase of the concussion protocol.
Head coach Dan Quinn relayed Monday that Freeman had already received clearance to attend meetings, but Wednesday's development indicates otherwise. As the week progresses, the Atlanta Falcons will tread carefully with their star running back due to the murky nature of concussions. While Freeman's availability could come down to a game-time call, the team kicks off at 1 PM ET on Sunday, affording his owners a chance to make necessary adjustments. If he's unable to play, Tevin Coleman will head Atlanta's backfield.
Colts' Frank Gore: Misses practice Wednesday
Frank Gore (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Kevin Bowen of Indianapolis Colts .com reports.
The report suggests that it was a "rare rest day" for Gore, but it's worth noting that per Stephen Holder of the Indy Star, the running back dealt with a knee issue in Week 11 against the Falcons, though afterward Gore indicated that he'd be fine. We'll let you know if that assessment changes.
Giants' Larry Donnell: Will not practice Wednesday
Larry Donnell (neck) will not practice Wednesday, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.
Donnell was cleared by team doctors to resume football activities Monday, so it's somewhat surprising to see the New York Giants list him as inactive on their pre-practice report. His game-time status should gain more clarity as the week progresses, so fantasy owners should check back in closer to Friday for more information.
