Falcons' Leonard Hankerson: Partially participates in practice Friday
Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) was a limited participant at Friday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.
Hankerson is seemingly headed for a game-time decision Sunday against the Vikings with a hamstring issue that's plagued him over the past month. He was able to play through the injury last week against the Colts, but there's no guarantee he'll be able to do it again Sunday.
Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Unable to practice Friday
Devonta Freeman (concussion) was unable to practice Friday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.
Freeman now seems doubtful for Sunday's game against the Vikings as he remains under the league's concussion protocol and out of practice. Barring something unexpected, Tevin Coleman is in store for the lion's share of touches out of the backfield Sunday.
Cowboys' Tony Romo: Will miss remainder of season with fractured clavicle
Tony Romo will miss the remainder of the season after being diagnosed with a hairline fracture to his left clavicle Friday, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Romo's clavicle won't actually require surgery but he'll still need to sit out the rest of the season after sustaining the break during Thursday's loss to the Panthers. Matt Cassel will seemingly take over from here on out as the Dallas Cowboys fade out of playoff contention after Romo's second left clavicle injury in just a matter of months.
Jets' Darrelle Revis: Unable to practice Friday
Darrelle Revis (concussion) was unable to practice Friday, Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post reports.
Revis now seems highly doubtful for Sunday's game against the Dolphins after missing the entire week of practice with a concussion.
Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: Expects full return by 2016 training camp
Darqueze Dennard expects to be available for 2016 training camp after undergoing shoulder surgery sometime in the next couple of weeks, Geoff Hobson of Cincinnati Bengals .com reports.
Dennard hasn't made much of an impact during his two years in the league but appeared to be turning a corner shortly before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury last week. While he's expected to make a full recovery, it seems likely that he'll be in store for another ancillary role on the Bengals' defense next season.
Packers' Damarious Randall: Picks up knee injury
Randall only registered two tackles during his abbreviated time on the field Thursday. Given the upbeat report on his status, it would be surprising if he wasn't able to take the field Thursday against the Lions.
Ravens' Justin Forsett: Heads to IR
Justin Forsett (arm) was officially placed on the injured reserve list Friday.
Forsett was already ruled out for the remainder of the season with his broken arm and his move to the IR comes as no surprise. The Baltimore Ravens will now look to a combination of Javorius Allen, Raheem Mostert, and Terrance West to fill the void.
Bills' Sammy Watkins: Coach wants him to see the rock
Coach Rex Ryan says he'd like to see more passes thrown Watkins' way, The Buffalo News reports. "We've got to find ways to get him the football," Ryan said this week, "because he is that talented and that's a challenge to our staff. Even our quarterback. Let's get
The ledger for Watkins receiving more looks now has Ryan, Watkins, Watkins' agent, and about seven million
Packers' James Starks: Rushes for 39 yards on seven carries
James Starks rushed for 39 yards on seven carries, and caught four balls on five targets for 41 yards in Thursday's Thanksgiving loss to the Bears.
Starks was notably in a backup role as Eddie Lacy got 17 carries to Starks' seven. It appears as Lacy has full control over the lead back role for Green Bay again. Starks should continue to see a few drives of action per game, including two-minute drill and comeback situations.
Bears' Jeremy Langford: Records 48 rushing yards, touchdown in win
Jeremy Langford carried the ball 12 times for 48 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 17-13 win over the Packers. He also caught one pass for five yards.
Though Langford didn't get the start for the Thanksgiving Day game, coach John Fox divvied up the workload fairly evenly between Langford and Matt Forte, who returned from a three-game absence due to a knee injury. Forte ended up finishing with a slight edge in carries (15), but Langford showed a little bit more burst between the tackles, averaging four yards per attempt compared to Forte's 2.9. Langford was also able to punch in his lone goal-line carry for a touchdown, while Forte actually lost yardage on his two attempts near the goal line during a similar scenario early in the fourth quarter. While Langford was probably the better of the two players Thursday, it's unlikely that Fox will move back to a more one-sided approach during next week's matchup with the 49ers. Just as he did during his time coaching in Carolina with DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, Fox has stated an affinity for dual-back systems, much to the chagrin of fantasy players.
