Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Ready to roll, per Ryan
Though Tyrod Taylor (right shoulder) was limited at practice this week, coach Rex Ryan said Friday that the QB is "ready to roll" for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Taylor, who relayed earlier this week, that he "kind of jammed" up his right shoulder "a little bit" Monday night against the Patriots, increased his throwing at practice Friday to the point that Ryan signed off on the QB's Week 12 availability, confirming that Taylor is "good to go." With Taylor a little banged up and the Chiefs' D on something of a roll, it wouldn't surprise us, however, to see the Buffalo Bills employ a ground-heavy attack on the road this weekend.
Vikings' Everson Griffen: Returns to practice
Everson Griffen (hip) returned to practice Friday and is listed as questionable against Atlanta, but head coach Mike Zimmer said he expects him to play, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Griffen missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday with hip and shoulder ailments, but it sounds like he'll be ready to play Sunday.
Ravens' Terrance West: Expected to serve as top backup
Terrance West will likely serve as the No. 2 running back in Monday's game against the Browns, the Baltimore Ravens ' official website reports.
West is next in line behind Javorius Allen for early-down work, but the Baltimore native's lack of quickness and pass-catching skills doesn't portend much upside. Even if Allen suffers an injury, West would likely just be the early-down back in a Matt Schaub-led offense that's been decimated by injuries. Allen will likely have a three-down role Monday night, after playing every offensive snap in the second half of a Week 11 win over the Rams.
Vikings' Harrison Smith: Returns to practice
Harrison Smith (knee) returned to practice Friday and is listed as questionable against Atlanta, but head coach Mike Zimmer said he expects him to play, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Smith hurt his knee early in last week's loss to Green Bay but was able to play a full game. He didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday, but it sounds like he just needed some rest. Still, check to make sure he's active Sunday.
Giants' Hakeem Nicks: Won't necessarily be active Sunday
Hakeem Nicks won't necessarily be active for Sunday's game at Washington, NJ.com's Jordan Raanan reports.
Though he didn't say that Nicks will be inactive, head coach Tom Coughlin did say that special teams will factor into the decision. Even if he ends up playing, Nicks will likely just be the fourth or fifth wide receiver.
Giants' Prince Amukamara: Listed as probable to face Washington
Prince Amukamara (pectoral) is listed as probable for Sunday's game at Washington.
With Amukamara set to play for the first time since Week 5, the New York Giants will have both halves of their impressive cornerback duo. The Big Blue defense has had some ugly showings this season, but the group they'll put out on the field for Sunday's game isn't lacking in talent.
Giants' Uani Unga: Probable to return
Uani' Unga (neck) is listed as probable for Sunday's game at Washington.
Unga used the bye week to regain his health, but it isn't entirely clear that he'll have a three-down role, as Jasper Brinkley proved to be a more than capable replacement. It's a situation best avoided for IDP purposes until there's some clarity.
Colts' Mike Adams: Doubtful for Sunday
Mike Adams (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's matchup with the Buccaneers, Kevin Bowen of Indianapolis Colts .com reports.
Adams may miss his second game in a row due to a lingering ankle injury. The 34-year-old did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday, so it seems unlikely he'll make it on the field Sunday. If he is out, look for Colt Anderson to pick up the start in his place.
Giants' Larry Donnell: Ruled out for Sunday
Larry Donnell (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins.
Donnell was cleared at the beginning of the week, but a follow-up MRI found an issue in his neck, which may threaten his availability for the remainder of the season. Will Tye and Jerome Cunningham, neither of whom has impressed thus far, will serve as the team's top tight ends. Tye has been getting more playing time, but his struggles could create an opening for Cunningham.
Browns' Joe Haden: Unable to practice Friday
Joe Haden (concussion) did not practice Friday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Dealing with his second concussion of the season, Haden is in danger of missing a third straight game, even with the Cleveland Browns coming out of a bye week. He has struggled when healthy this season.
