Ravens' Marlon Brown: Doubtful for Monday's game
Marlon Brown (back) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Browns, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
It doesn't seem as if the 24-year-old receiver will be able to suit against the Browns on Monday, considering Brown hasn't been able to practice this week due to a back injury. The Baltimore Ravens are desperately thin at the wide receiver position, but Brown hasn't been much of a factor this year, recording just 14 catches for 112 yards. Jeremy Butler or Kaelin Clay could see some additional targets if Brown is unable to play, but neither receiver figures to factor much into the offense with backup quarterback Matt Schaub set to lead the Ravens the rest of the season after Joe Flacco (ACL/MCL) was placed on IR.
Frankie Hammond: Promoted to active roster
Frankie Hammond was promoted to the 53-man roster Saturday.
Hammond has been on the Chiefs' practice squad, but with De'Anthony Thomas out Sunday against Buffalo, he'll join the active roster to serve as the fifth receiver. The Florida product saw time in all 16 games for Kansas City last season, catching four passes on 12 targets for 45 yards.
Dolphins' Rishard Matthews: Questionable with illness
Rishard Matthews (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, Greg Likens of Miami Dolphins .com reports.
The nature of the illness is unclear, but it's apparently serious enough to jeopardize Matthews' status for Sunday's game. The Nevada product is coming off of his least-productive game of the season, as he hauled in just one catch on three targets for 15 yards against the Cowboys. If he's held out, the likes of Kenny Stills, Greg Jennings and possibly DeVante Parker could see increased targets.
Rams' Case Keenum: Won't play Sunday
Case Keenum (concussion) will not start Sunday's game against the Bengals, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.
Keenum remains in the league's concussion protocol, and he'll be held out Sunday after taking a hit to the head late in last week's loss to Baltimore. The St. Louis Rams had initially hoped that Keenum would be cleared in time to play Sunday, but they'll hand the reins of the offense back over to Nick Foles, who was benched after nine uninspiring games as the starter.
Rams' Nick Foles: Will start Sunday
Nick Foles will get the start Sunday in place of Case Keenum (concussion), Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.
This news comes as no surprise after Keenum suffered a blatant head injury during the St. Louis Rams ' final drive last week against Baltimore. Foles, who began the season as the starter, was benched following a loss to the Bears on Nov. 15, but he'll take back the reins and look to improve upon what's been a struggle-filled season. In nine games, Foles has completed just 56.6 percent of his passes while tossing six interceptions compared to only seven touchdowns. Considering St. Louis faces the Bengals in Cincinnati, the Rams' offense figures to be among the least productive fantasy options in Week 12.
Zach Hocker: Signing with Rams
Zach Hocker will sign with the Rams on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.
The Rams' regular kicker, Greg Zuerlein, is considered questionable with a groin injury, so the addition of Hocker simply adds insurance in the event Zuerlein is held out. Hocker appeared in six games for the Saints before being waived on Oct. 19. He converted 9-of-13 field goals, including all three of his attempts within 30 yards.
Giants' Mark Herzlich: Upgraded to questionable
Mark Herzlich (quad) has been upgraded from "out" to "questionable" for Sunday's game against Washington, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.
Herzlich was initially ruled out earlier in the week, but his condition has apparently improved and he'll make the trip to Washington, D.C. with the team. Herzlich has recorded 20 combined tackles in 10 games this season.
Ravens' Marlon Brown: Not practicing Saturday
Marlon Brown (back) did not practice Saturday, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
While the Baltimore Ravens have not issued an official designation, Brown's chances of playing Monday against Cleveland do not appear to be overly high, as he's now missed three straight practices with a back injury. The Georgia product was not targeted in last week's win over St. Louis, and he has just 14 catches for 112 yards on the season.
Patriots' Danny Amendola: Not playing Sunday
As of Friday night, there was still a chance Amendola would make the trip to Denver with the team, but after being evaluated Saturday, the receiver has been ruled out and will remain back in Foxboro. Amendola suffered the knee injury against the Bills on Monday, and he was limited in practice Thursday and Friday after not participating on Wednesday. With Julian Edelman (foot) out and Aaron Dobson, Brian Tyms, Josh Boyce and Brandon Gibson all on IR, the Pats are currently left with only three healthy receivers heading into Sunday: Brandon LaFell, Chris Harper and Keshawn Martin. All three figure to see expanded roles, with tight end Rob Gronkowski likely seeing even more attention than usual from the Denver defense.
Vikings' Harrison Smith: Ruled out Sunday
Harrison Smith (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Smith sustained the injury early in last week's loss to Green Bay, but he played through the ailment for the better part of the contest. Despite practicing Friday, Smith has been ruled out, so the Minnesota Vikings will likely turn to Antone Exum Jr. to fill the void.
