Bills' Mario Williams: Iffy for Week 12
ESPN's Mike Rodak relays that coach Rex Ryan indicated that Mario Williams ' (foot) chances of playing Sunday against Chiefs don't look good.
On the plus side, Ryan noted that Williams is not dealing with a foot fracture, but in the short-term, it looks like the Buffalo Bills will be without the defensive end in Week 12.
Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Parctices again Thursday
Emmanuel Sanders (ankle/finger) practiced for the second straight day Thursday, the Denver Post reports.
Sanders missed this past Sunday's win over the Bears with a left high ankle sprain, but the report relays that wideout "ran well both days in practice this week," which bodes well for his chances of suiting up Sunday night against the Patriots.
Broncos' DeMarcus Ware: Misses another practice
DeMarcus Ware (back) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.
More on Ware's status Friday, but at this stage he looks iffy for Sunday night's game against the Patriots.
Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Resumes throwing Thursday
As expected, Tyrod Taylor (right shoulder) resumed throwing at practice Thursday, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.
The report adds that Taylor, who noted Wednesday that he "kind of jammed" up his right shoulder "a little bit" Monday night against the Patriots, is expected to play Sunday against Chiefs, according to coach Rex Ryan. More on Taylor's Week 12 status no later than Friday, upon the release of the Buffalo Bills ' final injury report of the week.
Bears' Jeremy Langford: Will work in tandem with Matt Forte
While Forte figures to be the starter in his expected return, the
Broncos' Peyton Manning: Absence could extend beyond the next two weeks
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggested Thursday that Peyton Manning (foot) is at least three weeks away from playing again.
When explaining the basis of the estimate, Rapoport noted Thursday that Manning is "going to be in a cast for up to 10 days, then he's got another week of rehab, and then he's got to try to get on the field." Based on that, Rapoport suggests that "the date to circle on your calendar is Dec. 20 against the Steelers. That's the most realistic date that Manning could be back, but no one has guaranteed to me that he'll definitely be back on the field, especially if Brock Osweiler is playing well." In any case, the Denver Broncos have already acknowledged that Manning -- who continues to recover from a plantar fascia tear -- is expected to miss at least the next two games, with Osweiler slated to fill in for him at QB in the meantime.
Falcons' Joplo Bartu: Waived on Thursday
The Atlanta Falcons have waived Joplo Bartu .
The move was made to free up a roster spot for the team's signing of kicker Shayne Graham. Bartu, who recorded 82 tackles last season, has been limited to just 11 stops in seven 2015 contests.
Falcons' Matt Bryant: Dealing with quad issue
With Matt Bryant having strained his quad Wednesday during practice, the Atlanta Falcons have signed Shayne Graham.
The Falcons haven't ruled Bryant out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, but the fact that the team move so swiftly to add another kicker suggests that Bryant is in danger of missing the contest.
Eagles' Mark Sanchez: Starting Thursday
Mark Sanchez will start Thursday's game in Detroit, Geoff Mosher of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Earning his second start in a row for an inactive Sam Bradford (concussion/shoulder), Sanchez will direct the Philadelphia Eagles ' offense against a Detroit defense that has given up multiple touchdown passes in six of 10 contests this season. However, in back-to-back appearances, Sanchez has completed 40 of 64 passes for 417 yards and two touchdowns versus four interceptions.
Lions' Eric Ebron: Listed as active Thursday
Eric Ebron (quadriceps/hand) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Eagles.
Ebron will thus look to bounce back from a zero-catch effort against the Raiders this past Sunday. Prior to his quiet effort in Week 11, Ebron had caught 27 passes for 320 yards and three TDs over his first seven outings.
