, RB, MIN
Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon
told reporters he won't play Sunday
against the Panthers because of a lower back injury, the Star Tribune
reports. The injury kept McKinnon out of practice the entire week leading up to the game. He has 538 yards on 113 carries this season.
McKinnon's next chance to return will come Week 14 against Jets.
Report: Raiders RB Murray likely to be red-lighted Sunday
, RB, OAK
Raiders running back Latavius Murray
is all but set to sit Sunday against St. Louis with a concussion, sources have told 957 The Game Bay Area.
The team had been optimistic in regard to his return from a concussion, but he has yet to be cleared.
49ers' Frank Gore, Carlos Hyde sputter in loss vs. Seahawks
, RB, SF
The 49ers couldn't find much success on the ground in Thursday's 19-3 loss to the Seahawks, with running back Frank Gore
leading the way with 10 carries for just 28 yards and an eight-yard reception in Week 13.
Rookie Carlos Hyde was the more explosive of the two backs Thursday, rushing for 19 yards on five carries while catching all three of his targets for a team-high 38 receiving yards, but the Seahawks defense virtually shut down the entire 49ers offense on Thanksgiving. The pair will look to bounce back in a much better matchup against the Raiders in Week 14.
Seahawks' Robert Turbin scores lone TD in win vs. 49ers
, RB, SEA
Seahawks running back Robert Turbin
caught both of his targets for 47 yards and a touchdown while adding eight rushing yards on four carries in his team's 19-3 win over the 49ers in Week 13.
Turbin grabbed a short pass to the left and was able to work his way towards the end zone and maintain his balance to score a 13-yard touchdown that put his team up 7-0 in the first quarter. The Seahawks would pile on two field goals before halftime in a game where the 49ers had virtually no answers for the Seattle defense. Turbin's touchdown was just his second of the season and his first since Week 2. He'll match up with the Eagles in Week 14.
Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch racks up 104 rushing yards Thursday
, RB, SEA
Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch
rushed for 104 yards on 20 carries while adding a seven-yard reception in his team's 19-3 win over the 49ers in Week 13.
Lynch took a heavy portion of the workload on Thanksgiving as the Seahawks jumped out to an early lead and leaned on the defense. Despite struggling against the Cardinals in Week 12, Lynch has posted three 100-yard performances on the ground in his last four games. However, he hasn't reached the end zone in any of his last three games. He'll look to rectify the recent lack of scoring against the Eagles in Week 14.
Cowboys backup runners combine for five touches
, RB, DAL
Cowboys backup running backs Joseph Randle
and Lance Dunbar
were barely used in Thursday's loss to the Eagles. Randle ran twice for 6 yards and caught one pass for minus-1 yard. Dunbar rushed twice for 15 yards, including a 14-yard gain.
They'll visit the Bears next Thursday.
RB DeMarco Murray held to season-low 73 rushing yards
, RB, DAL
NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray
averaged under 4.0 yards per carry for the first time this season in the Cowboys' Thanksgiving loss to the Eagles. Murray carried 20 times for a season-low 73 yards (3.7 ypc) but did punch in a 1-yard touchdown, his first score since Week 7.
Murray tied his season high with six catches for 40 yards. It was the fourth time this year he's hauled in six passes.
Murray, who's been held under 100 yards rushing only twice, visits the Bears next Thursday.
Eagles get offensive contributions Week 13
, RB, PHI
The Eagles got several offensive contributions in their Thursday blowout of the Cowboys. Wideout Riley Cooper
caught four of seven targets for 32 yards, and tight end Brett Celek
had a 7-yard reception.
Running back Darren Sproles caught all three of his targets for 19 yards and had a 13-yard run. Running back Chris Polk, playing mainly in garbage time, ran 11 times for 49 yards. Receiver Josh Huff added a 7-yard rush.
They'll all play the Seahawks in Week 14.
LeSean McCoy busts out on Thanksgiving
, RB, PHI
Eagles RB LeSean McCoy
busted out for a season-high 159 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries in Thursday's win at Dallas. McCoy sprinted 35 yards around right end on his second rush and averaged 6.4 yards per carry on the day.
Midway through the third quarter, McCoy used a vicious stiff-arm to scoot 38 yards for a touchdown, his third score in the past four games and fourth this season. McCoy has run for 289 yards over the past two weeks. He was not targeted in the passing game.
McCoy coughed up his second fumble of the season, but it didn't matter in this blowout. He plays the Seahawks in Week 14.
Lions RB Theo Riddick totals six catches Week 13
, RB, DET
Lions running back Theo Riddick
had no carries during a 34-17 win Week 13 vs. Chicago, but he made his presence felt in the passing game. He totaled six catches for 54 yards, with his longest reception going for 19 yards.
Riddick has had five or more catches three times this season. He has 27 catches for 272 yards and three touchowns in 10 games.
