As long as he sustains such a workload this week, Willson will uphold head coach Pete Carroll's belief that the tight end is poised to end his DNP streak at one game Sunday in Green Bay. By doing so, Willson will serve as the primary backup to Jimmy Graham.
Clay missed Sunday's game against the Raiders so he could be home for the birth of his child, but he should be back in the fold for this week's game against the Steelers, where the Buffalo offense could have an improved look with Clay and Robert Woods expected back in action.
Supernaw missed the two games prior to Tennessee's Week 13 bye, but his availability at Wednesday's practice suggests he isn't expected to miss any more time.
Thomas's status for Sunday's game against the Vikings is cloudy, and if he remains sidelined this weekend, Ben Koyack and Neal Sterling would be in line to head the Jaguars' TE corps in Week 14.
Ebron previously missed three games this season due to a knee injury, but his ability to practice in some capacity Wednesday dampens some of the uncertainty surrounding his imminent availability. Still, his status should be watched closely as the week goes on to ensure he's trending toward active status Sunday against the Bears.
Sterling will be fine for Sunday's game against the Vikings, though his fantasy utility in deeper formats is linked to the status of Julius Thomas (back), who did not practice Wednesday. The same applies to fellow TE Ben Koyack, who Sterling has worked in tandem with in Thomas' absence.
Cleveland missed each of the past two games with a concussion, but appears to have cleared protocol. Thus, he could be back in action during Sunday's game in Carolina.
During individual drills, Reed hauled in passes, yet he skipped 1-on-1 work, which included blocking. Clearly unable to take contact at this time, he likely won't do so until the AC joint separation in his left shoulder allows such activity. On a positive note, he returned to practice for the first time since sustaining the injury on Thanksgiving day, meaning he's making inroads in his recovery effort.
Stocker was unable to return to Sunday's game against San Diego after suffering the ankle injury, and his status for Week 14's matchup with the Saints appears to be in danger at this point. If he's ultimately unable to play, Brandon Myers figures to slide into the No. 2 spot at tight end behind starter Cameron Brate.
Barnidge suffered a knee injury against the Giants in Week 12, but the tight end obviously benefited from the Browns' subsequent bye week and is on track to suit up Sunday against the Bengals. Through 12 contests, Barnidge -- who scored nine times last season -- has recorded just one TD, while averaging 3.3 catches and 39 receiving yards per game in that span. While he's still an option in deeper fantasy formats, Barnidge is well off his 2015 pace, which resulted in a final 79/1,043/9 stat line.
