      Willson (knee) practiced fully Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: 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.

  • Josh Doctson WR - WAS IR View News
    • Wed, Dec 7, 5:43pm

      The Redskins tabbed Kory Lichtensteiger (calf) as their designee to return from injured reserve, meaning Doctson (Achilles) won't play again this season, Brian McNally of 106.7 The Fan DC reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Plagued by a sore left Achilles throughout the offseason program and preseason slate, Doctson toughed it out the first two games of the season. Among his two catches on six targets, he showed off his first-round pedigree with a 57-yard reception. Unfortunately, Week 2 marked his last appearance, he was placed on injured reserve in Week 7, and teams can only designate one player for potential activation from IR. He'll thus focus his efforts on an injury-free offseason in anticipation of a sustained role within the Redskins' offense in 2017.

      Draughn (ribs) was limited in practice Wednesday, Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Over the last three games, Draughn has made an impact as either a receiver or rusher, but never in both realms in a given contest. During that span, he's totaled five carries for 20 yards and nine receptions (on 11 targets) for 92 yards, so he continues to hold some utility as Carlos Hyde's primary backup. As a result, deep league owners should keep an eye on Draughn as the week unfolds.

      Kuechly (concussion) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports. "All three [also Kurt Coleman and Daryl Worley] are in the concussion protocol, but being on the practice field means they've moved to the next step," head coach Ron Rivera said. "Tomorrow morning will be very important when they visit with the medical staff."

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Rivera seems to be hinting that Kuechly and company are approaching the end of their respective journeys through the concussion protocol. It's unclear if Kuechly himself only requires clearance from an independent neurologist, but his workload Thursday will impart where he stands. In the end, though, he seems poised to miss one fewer game than he did a season ago due to a concussion.

      Ryan (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Ryan came back from a two-game absence last Sunday against the Texans only to re-injure his balky ankle. His availability in practice throughout the remainder of the week will likely provide further insight towards his status for this weekend's game against the Seahawks.

      Bellamy (shoulder) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: With Matt Barkley under center the last two games, Bellamy has surpassed his catch count (six) from the previous 10 contests, reeling in eight of 15 passes for 134 yards. Included in that stretch are three catches of 20-plus yards, exhibiting his emergence as the deep threat in the current iteration of the Bears' offense. Although a shoulder injury could hinder his range of motion in upcoming contests, he's set a good foundation with a limited practice to start the week.

      Strong (ankle) was listed as limited at Wednesday's practice.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Per the Houston Chronicle, coach Bill O'Brien considers Strong, who has been sidelined since spraining his ankle on Oct. 30, day-to-day as Houston's Sunday matchup against Indianapolis approaches. In three career games against the Colts to date, Strong has five catches for 112 yards and three touchdowns.

      Austin (chest) practiced fully Wednesday, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: No practice last week translated to a doubtful designation and eventual inactive status Sunday at New England. With an uncapped return to drills, though, Austin appears to be over his brief episode with a chest injury. Looking ahead to this Sunday's matchup against the high-powered Falcons, the Rams may be forced to the air early and often, which could benefit Austin, who has gathered in five of six passes for 66 yards and one touchdown in two games with Jared Goff (illness) under center.

      Cunningham (neck) did not practice Wednesday, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Cunningham has been an afterthought in the Rams' offensive attack as of late. If he's unable to practice this week due to this unspecified neck injury, he could be removed from the game plan entirely.

      Clay (knee) was listed as limited for Wednesday's practice.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: 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.
