Broncos TE Julius Thomas (ankle) remained sidelined on Wednesday.  He's yet to practice since getting hurt 10 days ago.  Consider him 50-50 for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs.

Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Bears.  He remained limited in practice this week but is expected to play on Thanksgiving.  It's a plus matchup at home, but Bush is tough to trust in fantasy lineups.  He's been held under 45 total yards in his past 3 games.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien says that RB Arian Foster (groin) has a "good chance" to play against the Titans this weekend.  Foster practiced on Wednesday and "looked good," according to O'Brien.  Of course, the Texans have been optimistic about Foster the past 2 weeks before deactivating him for the games.  We'll continue to track his progress over the next couple days.  Tennessee ranks 29th in fantasy points allowed to RBs.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) says he'll play against the Colts this weekend.  He returned to a limited practice on Wednesday -- his 1st since going down 10 days ago.  We'll see if Reed can avoid a setback over the next couple days.  He caught 7 balls for 40 yards in QB Colt McCoy's 1st start this season.

Raiders RB Latavius Murray (concussion) has been cleared to practice.  He still has another stage of the concussion protocol to get through, but he's on track to do so ahead of Sunday's game against the Rams.  Murray will be the best bet to lead Oakland's backfield in touches in that one, but Darren McFadden will likely still be involved.  And the tough matchup leaves Murray as just a RB3 or flex for Week 13.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians says WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is making "some progress."  He was unable to practice on Wednesday, though, and remains iffy for this weekend's game against the Falcons.  Even if Fitz suits up for that one, he'll be tough to trust in fantasy lineups.

Bucs TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (back) returned to the field for Wednesday's practice.  He should be ready for this weekend's game against the Bengals' 23rd-ranked TE defense, but ASJ has totaled just 3 catches over his past 2 outings.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice.  This ankle injury is turning out to be more serious than initially believed.  We'll continue to track Allen's status, but fantasy owners can't be counting on him playing against the Redskins on Sunday.

Browns HC Mike Pettine wouldn't commit to TE Jordan Cameron (concussion) returning for this weekend's game against the Bills.  "We're looking for him to practice symptom-free for a couple of days in a row," Pettine said Wednesday.  "Still day-to-day."   We're expecting Cameron to play, assuming he avoids a setback this week.  We'll have a better idea of his status by Friday.

Dolphins TE Charles Clay (hamstring, knee) returned to practice on Wednesday.  If he can avoid a setback over the next few days, he should play against the Jets on Monday night.  He'd be a low-end TE1 vs. the league's 31st-ranked TE defense.

Jets QB Geno Smith will start Monday night's game against the Dolphins.  Previous reports that HC Rex Ryan leaning toward QB Michael Vick, so it looks like he was over-ruled by upper management.  Either way, it makes sense for New York to go back to their younger, slightly less crappy QB.  Smith obviously isn't a fantasy option against Miami's 2nd-ranked QB defense.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Redskins will start QB Colt McCoy against the Colts on Sunday.  QB Robert Griffin has struggled all year in HC Jay Gruden's offense.  And it's only gotten worse the past 2 weeks, with Griffin totaling just 313 yards with 1 TD and 2 INTs.  According to Schefter, though, RG3 "still appears to be a significant part of the Redskins' long-term plan ... Washington is hitting the reset button, though it might not last long."  It sounds like the QB situation might be a week-to-week ordeal the rest of the way.  But considering RG3 has a $16 million team option in 2015, we wouldn't consider him a lock to be back with the 'Skins next season.  Avoid both Washington QBs for the rest of this year.

Jets TE Jace Amaro suffered a concussion in Monday night's loss to the Bills.  He has 7 days to get cleared in time for this coming Monday's game against the Dolphins.  Amaro has totaled just 2 catches for 6 yards in his last 3 games and shouldn't be anywhere near your fantasy lineup.

The Cardinals have signed RB Michael Bush.  The 6'1, 245-pounder appeared washed-up in Chicago last year, averaging 3.1 yards per carry on 63 totes.  That followed YPCs of 3.6 and 3.8 the previous 2 seasons.  Bush isn't even guaranteed to be active on game days for the Cardinals, and he certainly won't be a fantasy factor.  We'll see if he shows enough to steal any goal-line work from RB Andre Ellington.

The Broncos have signed K Connor Barth, according to insider Jeff Legwold.  Barth beat out Jay Feely in a competition to replace Brandon McManus.  Barth last kicked for the Bucs back in 2012, connecting on 28 of 33 FGs.  He sports a solid 84.2% conversion rate for his career.  Unfortunately for his fantasy prospects, he figures to be kicking more XPs than FGs in Denver.  McManus ranked 30th in the league with just 13 FG attempts through 11 games.

The Broncos have released K Brandon McManus.  He missed 4 of his 13 FG attempts this season, including 2 from under 50 yards.  Denver simply lost faith in him as their guy heading down the stretch.  We'll see who the Broncos bring in to replace McManus, but he won't be a strong fantasy option.  McManus attempted just 13 FGs in 11 games -- 30th league wide.

Jets insider Rich Cimini hears that HC Rex Ryan is planning to go back to QB Michael Vick for Monday night's game against the Dolphins.  Vick was yanked from last night's game after completing just 7 of 19 passes for 76 yards and an INT.  On the season, he's connected on just 52.9% of his throws and averaged 5.0 yards per attempt.  Both marks are worse than QB Geno Smith's 55.8% completion rate and 6.0-yard average.  Going back to Vick for Week 13 would be a clear indication that the Jets have given up on Smith.  Stay far, far away from the situation in fantasy football.

Cowboys WR Terrance Williams broke the tip of his index finger in Sunday night's win over the Giants.  He doesn't need surgery but will play through it with a splint.  It's a concern for a WR.  Williams has finished with 2 or fewer catches in 6 of his last 7 games.  Thursday's matchup with the Eagles brings upside, but Williams is a high-risk Week 13 fantasy start.

Broncos TE Julius Thomas' (ankle) status for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs remains uncertain.  Insider Mike Klis believes that Thomas has a "chance" to play, but Thomas sounded iffy on Monday.  "I have had better days, and I have had worse days," he said. "You hope you just wake up one day and it feels good again, but that didn't happen last week. But it has improved."  We'll track Thomas' progress throughout the week.  He posted a 4-39-1 line against the Chiefs back in Week 2.

"All signs" point to Browns TE Jordan Cameron (concussion) returning for this weekend's game against the Bills, according to insider Tony Grossi.  Cameron got back on the practice field last Friday and should receive full medical clearance if he avoids a setback this week.  He hasn't topped 3 catches in any of his 6 games this season and has been held under 50 yards in 5 of 6.  But Cameron remains one of the most physically gifted pass-catching TEs in the league.  And he'll now have WR Josh Gordon to pull coverage away.  Cameron will be a boom/bust TE1 if he returns for Week 13.
