Cowboys' Darren McFadden: Held in check Sunday
The receptions salvaged some of his value in PPR leagues, but otherwise it was a disappointing performance for McFadden. Tony Romo was re-injured in the game and could be lost for the rest of the season, so McFadden could begin to lose touches to Robert Turbin and other, younger backs as the
Panthers' Fozzy Whittaker: Fails to see a carry Thursday
Though Whittaker was one of two running backs active for Thursday's game, coach Ron Rivera's continued reliance on starter Jonathan Stewart (21 carries), and to a lesser degree, quarterback Cam Newton (12 carries) and fullback Mike Tolbert (four carries) left no room for Whittaker to make an impact. He has yet to see more than two carries in any game this season and figures to play a limited role the rest of the way, barring an injury to Stewart.
Panthers' Jonathan Stewart: Goes for 77 total yards Thursday
Stewart's volume in the running game has been about as it consistent as it gets in the league, as he finished with between 20 and 24 carries for the seventh consecutive week. However, his 3.2 yards per carry went down as his second-lowest mark of the season, and he was denied a touchdown in both of the
Cowboys' Matt Cassel: Takes over for injured Tony Romo in Sunday's loss
The score, to Cole Beasley, was the
Panthers' Cam Newton: Runs for TD, throws for 183 yards in win
It's the first game all season in which Newton didn't throw for a touchdown, but the quarterback did well to help the
Saints' Keenan Lewis: Placed on IR
Keenan Lewis (knee, hip) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Thursday, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.
Lewis finishes his season with just six tackles in six games, as the knee and hip injuries he's nursing -- along with a preseason sports hernia -- conspired to shorten his campaign. The depleted New Orleans Saints secondary signed Chris Owens earlier this week to add depth in place of Lewis.
Packers' Micah Hyde: Inactive Thursday
Micah Hyde (hip) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Bears.
With 45 tackles and a pick in 10 games to date, Hyde has carved out some utility in deeper IDP formats, with his absence Thursday representing a hit to the Green Bay Packers ' Week 12 safety corps.
Cowboys' Tony Romo: Diagnosed with left clavicle injury
Romo suffered the injury when he fell on his shoulder after being sacked by the Panthers' Thomas Davis, and finishes the game with 11 completions on 21 attempts for 106 yards, no touchdowns, and three interceptions. The fact that the
Bears' Ka'Deem Carey: Inactive Thursday
Ka'Deem Carey (concussion) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Packers.
Carey's absence is cushioned by the fact that Matt Forte is back in the Chicago Bears ' backfield mix Thursday.
Bears' Alshon Jeffery: Suits up Thursday
Alshon Jeffery (groin/shoulder) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Packers.
Jeffery returns to the mix after sitting out Week 11's game against the Broncos, and assuming no in-game setbacks we'd expect him to see his share of targets Thursday. Prior to a four-target mark recorded by the Chicago Bears ' top wideout in Week 10, Jeffery racked up 53 looks over his first four outings of the season.
