Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders left Thursday night's game against the Colts early with a right ankle injury and will not return. That's the same ankle he sprained in Week 6 before missing the next 2 games. We'll see how serious the issue is this time.
Broncos insider Mike Klis hears that QB Trevor Siemian has been diagnosed with a dislocated left shoulder that'll cost him the final 2 games of the season. With QB Paxton Lynch still recovering from a high-ankle sprain, it'll likely be Brock Osweiler under center vs. the Redskins and Chiefs to close out Denver's disappointing season.
The Cardinals have placed RB Adrian Peterson on IR. We still don't have any details on his neck injury, but he never returned to practice after going down in Week 12. It ends another disappointing season that saw Peterson muster just 3.4 yards per carry across 10 games with New Orleans and Arizona. He's signed for 2018 for a little more than $1 million, but there's no guarantee the Cardinals bring him back. Peterson turns 33 in March.
Broncos QB Trevor Siemian injured his left (non-throwing) shoulder in the 1st half of Thursday night's game against the Colts. He was carted back to the locker room and is officially questionable to return. Siemian had surgery on this same shoulder last offseason and injured it again back in Week 6. QB Brock Osweiler has entered for Denver.
Update: Siemian was ruled out a short time after exiting.
Seahawks RB Mike Davis (ribs) put in a full practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. He's good to go for this weekend's game against the Rams. Davis has carried 31 times for 130 yards (4.2 YPC) and caught 5 balls for 36 more in his last 2 outings.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) is expected to play against the Jets this weekend. The rookie put in his 2nd straight full practice on Thursday. Kamara -- and Mark Ingram -- should be busy with New Orleans whopping 16-point favorites.
Smith-Schuster added to injury report with hamstring
Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster was added to Thursday's injury report as limited with a hamstring. Remember that he missed Week 12 with a hamstring injury -- although it's unclear if this is related. Check back tomorrow for another update on Smith-Schuster's status. He'll be a WR3 with upside if the hammy isn't an issue against the Patriots on Sunday.
Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins did not practice on Thursday and is listed on the injury report with a toe. It's unclear if Hopkins just got the day off or is dealing with a legitimate injury. We'll learn more tomorrow.
Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday -- his 1st since going down in Week 10. It gives him a chance to play against the Texans this weekend. Hurns' presence would make rookie Dede Westbrook tougher to trust as a WR3. We'll get another update on Hurns tomorrow.
Bills WR Jordan Matthews announced Tuesday that he underwent knee and ankle surgeries. He's dealt with knee tendonitis for the better part of the past 2 years and missed 2 games with an ankle injury last season -- although it's unclear if the surgeries are related to either. Regardless, Matthews has had all sorts of trouble staying healthy, also fracturing his sternum and breaking his thumb this year. He's set to hit free agency in March.
