Cowboys' Darren McFadden: Probable for Thursday
Darren McFadden (groin) is listed as probable for Thursday's contest against the Panthers.
Since taking over the No. 1 RB role in Dallas in Week 7, McFadden has recorded three 100-yard rushing performances in five games, while recording between 20 and 32 touches in each outing. Given such a massive workload, he should be able to produce against a staunch Carolina defense that has conceded 120.5 total yards and seven touchdowns to running backs in 2015.
Cowboys' Dez Bryant: Probable for Thursday
Dez Bryant (foot/knee) is listed as probable for Thursday's game versus the Panthers.
Bryant has been playing with a balky foot and knee the past two contests, but the return of Tony Romo on Sunday helped the wide receiver tally his second touchdown of the season. While he'll aim to keep up the pace, Bryant may find difficulty achieving that end against a Carolina defense that has allowed just 6.5 YPT and seven total touchdowns to WR this season.
Bills' Charles Clay: Not on injury report
Charles Clay , who left Monday's game against the Patriots for a time with a neck issue, is not listed on the Buffalo Bills ' Week 12 injury report.
Coming off a one-catch, 14-yard effort on three Week 11 targets, Clay is a speculative play Sunday against the Chiefs, a team that has reeled off four straight wins and held San Diego tight ends Ladarius Green and Antonio Gates to a combined two catches for 15 yards this past weekend.
Cowboys' Tony Romo: Probable for Thursday
Tony Romo (back/shoulder) is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Panthers.
Following his normal practice routine, Romo took part in drills the past two days, even logging a full showing Wednesday. Thus, he's set to take on a Carolina defense that has allowed eight total passing touchdowns to quarterbacks not named Aaron Rodgers this season.
Chargers' Malcom Floyd: Present for practice Wednesday
Malcom Floyd (shoulder) was present for Wednesday's practice, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
It remains to be seen how the San Diego Chargers will officially list his participation, but Floyd's presence on the field Wednesday suggests that the wideout is headed in the right direction as Sunday's game against the Jaguars approaches.
Giants' Larry Donnell: Not expected to play Sunday
Larry Donnell isn't expected to play Sunday at Washington, after the New York Giants found a "troubling result" on an MRI on his neck, Dan Graziano of ESPN New York reports. "It's not looking good," Donnell said.
On Monday, Donnell stated that he felt 100 percent after doctors cleared him, but Wednesday's development leaves the tight end without a return date. While he'll likely be ruled out in advance of Sunday's game, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com speculated that Donnell may be in danger of missing the rest of the season. In the meantime, Will Tye and Jerome Cunningham will handle TE reps for the Giants, but a free-agent addition to the corps isn't out of the question.
Patriots' Aaron Dobson: Dealing with high ankle sprain
Aaron Dobson is dealing with a high ankle sprain, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.
We'd expect the New England Patriots to rule the wideout out for Sunday night's game against the Broncos later this week, and beyond that it's plausible he will miss additional time. With Julian Edelman out, plus Danny Amendola and Keshawn Martin also hobbled, the Patriots' depth at wideout is currently taxed.
49ers' Carlos Hyde: No practice Wednesday
Carlos Hyde (foot) won't participate in Wednesday's practice, Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
With each passing week and no practice participation, there's no telling when Hyde may be able to return from the stress fracture in his left foot. The sinking San Francisco 49ers also have little reason to trot him out there until he's completely healthy, which will keep Shaun Draughn at the top of the RB pecking order. In back-to-back starts, Draughn has managed 28 carries for 95 yards and 12 receptions (on 16 targets) for 78 yards.
Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Limited at practice Wednesday
Tyrod Taylor (right shoulder) was limited at practice Wednesday, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.
Per Rodak, Taylor relayed that he rested his shoulder Wednesday, but plans to resume throwing at Thursday's practice. Assuming that occurs without any setbacks, we'd expect the QB to remain on course to be able to play Sunday against the Chiefs.
Redskins' Alfred Morris: Practices fully Wednesday
Alfred Morris (rib) practiced fully Wednesday, Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.
In Week 10, Morris suffered a rib injury but played through the pain, totaling 15 rushes for 92 yards and three receptions for 14 yards. He attempted to do the same Sunday at Carolina, but his early aggravation resulted in no production whatsoever. Head coach Jay Gruden confirmed the nature of the ailment Wednesday, calling it a bruised rib, with no fractures or cartilage damage, according to Brian McNally of 106.7 the Fan DC. As a result, Morris' availability for Sunday's game versus the Giants isn't really in question, but his workload could be curtailed if he's unable to handle the discomfort.
