Trent Richardson speaks philosophically about losing starting job
"It was different when I went out there," he told the team website. "It was kind of like, 'This is a place in your life where you need to learn.' (I could) really see the offense and see how everything flows. I learned a lot about myself Sunday. It's a humbling job at the same time. Like I always tell people, 'The game's much bigger than me.'"
Richardson has averaged less than three yards a carry in five of the last six games. This exception was Sunday in his first non-start, when he rushed for 19 yards on five carries.
DeAngelo Williams limited Thursday
Williams has been dealing with a quadriceps injury, but was able to play through it Week 13. Jonathan Stewart was held out Thursday, so the team is dealing with two injured backs at the moment.
Le'Veon Bell says he's healthy again
Bell has become more productive with time. He has rushed for 153 yards on 39 carries and a touchdown in the last two games combined and caught a season-high seven passes in Week 13.
Calvin Johnson limited Thursday
Johnson has been dealing with a knee injury. He’s been able to play on Sunday despite missing practices during the week.
Two key Broncos are full-go at Thursday practice
Thomas has not played since Week 11 while Rodgers-Cromartie was sidelined Sunday at Kansas City.
Josh McCown to start Week 14
Jay Cutler was able to return to practice Thursday, but head coach Marc Trestman said he would not play Week 14. McCown has started, and played well, the past three weeks. He’ll get another shot to show what he can do Monday night.
Adrian Peterson misses practice Thursday
Peterson is dealing with a groin injury, which has prevented him from practicing the past couple weeks. He’s been able to play through the injury despite missing practices.
Jay Cutler ruled out Week 14
Cutler was able to participate in limited practice Thursday, but head coach Marc Trestman said he would not play Week 14. As long as Cutler continues to get through practices, he should have a good chance of returning Week 15.

Danny Amendola a weak Fantasy option in Week 14
Conservatism can be an admirable trait for Fantasy owners once the playoffs begin. One lousy performance by a skill position player can spell doom. And that makes
Amendola has been far too inconsistent for owners to feel comfortable starting him Sunday against Cleveland, especially given the risk that he could be covered by Browns top cornerback Joe Haden. He has just 14 catches for 116 yards and no scores in his last three games combined. Amendola has had just one start-worthy performance since the season opener.
The three CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers are recommending caution as well. They all have Amendola ranked near the bottom of their top 48 wide receiver options this week. That position is rich with talent. It would be best to keep Amendola on your bench until he gets on a roll, though that ship might have already sailed in 2013.
Ed Reed planning on playing two more seasons
Reed added that he doesn't worry about media or fan criticism. He might soon be spending more time not worrying on the sideline, however. The team is planning to increase the game reps of promising second-year safety Antonio Allen, who lost his starting job to Reed earlier in the year.
