Shark Bites

Steelers RB Benny Snell (knee) was a full-go in Wednesday's practice. That puts him on track to play against the Bengals this weekend. Snell figures to mix in on early downs alongside Jaylen Samuels -- assuming James Conner is out.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) remained limited in Wednesday's practice. He was limited all last week before missing the Patriots game. Howard is still waiting for full medical clearance. We'll see if he can get it over the next few days. If not, Miles Sanders will again serve as Philly's lead back against the Seahawks on Sunday.

Titans WR Corey Davis (hip) put in a full practice on Wednesday. So he's on track to return for this weekend's game against the Jaguars after missing Tennessee's last game before the bye week. Davis was sitting just 50th among WRs in PPR points through 9 weeks.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a shot to return for this weekend's game against the Jaguars after missing the previous 3 games. It's unclear how Tennessee would divvy playing time between Walker and Jonnu Smith.

Falcons TE Austin Hooper (knee) remained sidelined on Wednesday. He's unlikely to play against the Bucs this weekend. Jaeden Graham served as Atlanta's lead pass-catching TE last week but isn't a viable fantasy option.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him to play against the Bucs this weekend. That'd mean another game as lead back for Brian Hill.

Falcons WR Julio Jones missed Wednesday's practice with a foot issue. ESPN's Vaughn McClure observed Jones walking around practice with a "noticeable limp," so this looks like a legit injury. We'll see if he's able to get back on the field tomorrow.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (concussion) put in a full practice on Wednesday. He's on track to play against the Bengals this weekend. With JuJu Smith-Schuster expected to miss this one, Johnson and James Washington will serve as Pittsburgh's top 2 WRs.

Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) didn't practice on Wednesday. Consider him worse than 50/50 to play against the Bengals this weekend. His absence would thrust RB Jaylen Samuels back into the lead role in a plus matchup.

WRs Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) and Deebo Samuel (shoulder), RB Matt Breida (ankle) and TE George Kittle (knee) all missed Wednesday's practice. HC Kyle Shanahan said it'll "come down to the wire" whether they can play against the Packers on Sunday night. Samuel seems most likely to play after returning from his injury last week. And we're betting on Sanders suiting up after playing 36 snaps last week. Breida and Kittle are truly questionable.

Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Colts. He'll be a game-time decision. Check back around 7 pm ET tomorrow night for Fuller's official status. He'll be a risk/reward WR3 if active.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (leg) didn't practice on Wednesday, although he did participate in the walkthrough. HC Pete Carroll said that he expects Lockett to play against the Eagles this weekend -- but we wouldn't expect any different from him. We'll get another update on Lockett tomorrow.

Rams WR Robert Woods was still away from the team on Wednesday, HC Sean McVay said. We still don't have any details on the situation and can't consider Woods a lock to be back for Monday night's game against the Ravens. We'll continue to update his status.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (hip) put in a full practice on Wednesday. So he should be available for this weekend's game against the Giants -- and HC Matt Nagy said a healthy Trubisky is still the starter. Even in this plus matchup, though, Trubisky remains a low-end QB2.

Redskins RB Chris Thompson (toe) put in a limited practice on Wednesday -- his 1st since going down back in Week 6. We'll see if he's able to return for Sunday's game against the Lions. Thompson would figure to replace Wendell Smallwood as Washington's primary passing-down back and put a dent in Derrius Guice's stock.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. It's a good sign after he wasn't able to practice at all last week. We'll see how he progresses leading up to Sunday's game against the Seahawks. WR Nelson Agholor missed Wednesday's practice with a knee issue.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee, concussion) isn't expected to play against the Bengals on Sunday. Fowler adds that the knee injury isn't serious, so JuJu seemingly has a shot to return for Week 13. We'll see if WR Diontae Johnson is able to clear the concussion protocol before the weekend. James Washington is Pittsburgh's top healthy WR right now.

Patriots WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) missed practice on Wednesday. We noticed Sanu tweak an ankle in Philadelphia on Sunday, but he was able to play through it. We'll see if he's able to get back on the practice field tomorrow.

Colts RB Jordan Wilkins (ankle) isn't listed on the final Week 12 injury report and will play against the Texans on Thursday night. That puts a wrench in the plans of anyone who was hoping to use RB Jonathan Williams. It's completely unclear how early-down work will be divvied between Williams and Wilkins -- and Nyheim Hines figures to dominate passing-down snaps.

Colts TE Eric Ebron (ankle) is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Texans. He was listed as a full-go on Wednesday's estimated practice report, so we're expecting Ebron to play. We'll get his official status around 7 pm ET tomorrow night.
