  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire KC RB
    Chiefs' Clyde Edwards-Helaire: Misses practice
    28m ago

    Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

    Edwards-Helaire was a limited participant Wednesday in the Chiefs' first practice of the week, so his absence a day later suggests the running back either received some extra maintenance or experienced a setback with his injured shoulder. If it's the latter case, Edwards-Helaire would likely be at major risk of missing his third straight game Sunday, when the Chiefs host the Steelers in the wild-card round. On a positive note, Darrel Williams (toe) was on the practice field again Thursday after joining Edwards-Helaire as a limited participant at Wednesday's session, so Kansas City should have at least one of its top two backs available for the start of the postseason.

    Steelers' Najee Harris: Set to resume practicing Friday
    1h ago

    Harris (elbow) remained a spectator for Thursday's practice, but head coach Mike Tomlin said the running back will be back on the field for Friday's session, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

    Tomlin mentioned that how Harris fares in Friday's workout will be telling for the rookie's availability for Sunday's wild-card game in Kansas City. Harris proved supremely durable during the regular season, approaching each of the Steelers' 17 contests without an injury designation while finishing with a league-high 381 touches (307 carries, 74 catches). However, after injuring his elbow early in Pittsburgh's Week 18 win over Baltimore, Harris could be at risk of taking a questionable tag into the playoff opener if he's anything less than a full participant at Friday's practice.

    The Cowboys activated Kearse (hamstring/undisclosed) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

    Kearse was ruled out for Saturday's Week 18 win over the Eagles due to a hamstring injury before landing on the reserve/COVID-19 list. While he'll now be able to rejoin the team, it's unclear whether his hamstring injury will impact his availability for Sunday's wild-card matchup against San Francisco.

    Watt was cleared to return to practice last week but still has limitations ahead of Monday's wild-card matchup against the Rams. The Cardinals will presumably continue to monitor the 32-year-old's participation in practice Friday and Saturday before determining his status.

    Ya-Sin suffered ankle and hip injuries in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Jaguars. General manager Chris Ballard didn't sound too concerned about the 25-year-old's potential procedure, so it's unlikely that his offseason progression will be significantly impacted.

    Dolphins' Jacoby Brissett: Makes five starts in 2021
    5h ago

    Brissett logged five starts (11 appearances) in 2021, and concludes the campaign with 141 completions on 225 pass attempts, for 1,283 yards, five touchdowns and four interceptions.

    Brissett was only able to lead Miami's offense to two wins during his time at the helm, and on the season he only averaged 5.7 yards per pass attempt. Though Brissett added 19 carries for 3.7 yards and a score, he also lost three of six fumbles. The 29-year-old veteran is now scheduled for free agency, meaning he will likely have to pursue his next backup gig elsewhere.

    Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Toe issue almost behind him
    21h ago

    Rodgers said Wednesday that his fractured left pinkie toe won't be an issue in the postseason, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

    Rodgers has been contending with the injury since his return from a stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list that forced him to sit out a Week 9 matchup with the Chiefs. While he didn't record a touchdown in his return Week 10 against the Seahawks, he's been on an absolute tear in the meantime, throwing for 20 scores versus no interceptions while racking up 1,929 yards over the last seven games. Rodgers relayed he hasn't taken a pain-killing injection in his toe since it was stepped on just before halftime of a Christmas Day win over the Browns, a span of two contests. He also practiced Wednesday, after which he noted that he was "close to 100 percent." The Packers won't play their first playoff game until Jan. 22 or 23.

    Hurts (ankle) was a full participant at Wednesday's walk-through practice.

    While it wasn't a traditional practice session, Hurts has still received the full participation label on two straight injury reports dating back to last week. The Eagles opted to keep the second-year pro on the sideline this past Saturday versus the Cowboys, allowing Gardner Minshew to make a spot start under center Week 18. With Hurts continuing to demonstrate improved health since first sustaining the ankle injury Week 12, he's slated to lead the offense again for Sunday's postseason opener in Tampa Bay.

    Roethlisberger (pectoral/right shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Roethlisberger continues to manage the pair of injuries, but there's little doubt regarding his status for Sunday's wild-card game against Kansas City. With that in mind, the veteran quarterback will likely return to a full practice participation Thursday and avoid taking an injury designation into the weekend.

    The move frees up a spot for the team's addition of wideout John Brown to the practice squad.

    Ahmed appeared in 12 contests in 2021, recording 54 carries for 149 yards without a touchdown. He also secured 12 of 19 targets for 117 yards.

    Ahmed was the least efficient member of Miami's regular backfield rotation (2.8 YPC), and he found himself a heathy scratch during the final four games of the year. As an exclusive rights free agent this offseason, and with the Dolphins making a chance to the coaching staff, Ahmed's time with the team could well be nearing an end.

  • Travis Homer SEA RB
    Seahawks' Travis Homer: Registers 338 yards from scrimmage
    19h ago

    Homer rushed 21 times for 177 yards and a touchdown and caught 16 of 20 targets for 161 yards over 14 games during the 2021 season.

    Homer mostly played on special teams this season. Both he and DeeJay Dallas rarely played on offense; Chris Carson (neck) and Alex Collins (abdomen) handled most of the reps through the first 11 games while Rashaad Penny hit his stride over the final five games. Head coach Pete Carroll doesn't seem to trust either Homer or Dallas with a consistent role, meaning both running backs will likely face competition in training camp if Penny walks in free agency and Carson isn't 100 percent for the start of the 2022 campaign.

  • DeeJay Dallas SEA RB
    Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: Rarely utilized on offense in 2021
    19h ago

    Dallas finished the 2021 season with 33 carries for 138 yards and two touchdowns and 21 catches (23 targets) for 133 yards through 17 games. He also recorded 764 yards on 33 kick returns.

    Dallas played more than 40 percent of the offensive snaps just twice this season, and he averaged a mere 8.9 snaps per game. The second-year running back had a chance to secure an increased role when Chris Carson (neck) and Alex Collins (abdomen) suffered injuries. Instead, Rashaad Penny burst onto the scene over the final five weeks with 671 rushing yards (7.3 YPC) and six rushing touchdowns. Penny will be an unrestricted free agent in March but could be re-signed by the Seahawks, and Carson is expected to be back for training camp. Even if both Penny and Carson are out of the picture, the Seahawks will almost certainly bring in competition for Dallas and Travis Homer.

    Pittsburgh activated Washington (illness) activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

    Washington landed on the list Jan. 8 and didn't play in the the Steelers' regular-season finale against the Ravens, but the wideout will be available for Sunday's playoff opener against Kansas City. While his return bolsters Pittsburgh's wideout depth, Washington's fantasy upside is capped by the fact that Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool and Ray-Ray McCloud also are in the mix. Additionally, JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) has progressed to the point that he's been designated to return from injured reserve, which gives him a chance to return to the lineup Sunday.

    Smith-Schuster (shoulder) returned to practice Thursday after the Steelers designated him for return from injured reserve.

    Smith-Schuster was placed on IR back on Oct. 16 after suffering a shoulder injury that required surgery, but now that he's been cleared to practice, the Steelers will have a 21-day window in which to activate the wideout to the 53-man roster. While the transaction potentially paves the way for Smith-Schuster to play in Sunday's wild-card game in Kansas City, his availability likely will hinge on how he fares in practice Thursday and Friday.

  • Josh Palmer LAC WR
    Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Scores in season finale
    5h ago

    Palmer caught four of his nine targets for 45 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 35-32 overtime loss to the Raiders. The rookie finished the 2021 season with 33 receptions for 353 yards and four touchdowns.

    It took COVID-19 absences from both Keenan Allen and Mike Williams to force the issue, but Palmer quietly seemed to earn confidence from quarterback Justin Herbert toward the latter half of the season, accumulating 18 receptions, 185 yards and three touchdowns in his last five games. Both Williams and nominal No. 3 starter Jalen Guyton are technically free agents entering this offseason, but given that the Chargers boast the sixth-highest cap space among NFL teams, the team could certainly choose to bring back both players. The rookie's lack of breakaway speed seemingly doesn't make him an ideal candidate to play outside where the aforementioned duo operate, which also throws a wrench in 2022 projections, but it's at least encouraging to have seen Palmer develop some chemistry with Herbert, Los Angeles' ascending franchise signal-caller.

  • Jalen Guyton LAC WR
    Chargers' Jalen Guyton: Excels in final game
    5h ago

    Guyton caught six of his nine targets for 52 yards in Sunday's 35-32 loss to the Raiders. The third-year wide receiver finished the season with 31 receptions for 448 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games.

    It took until the final game of the season, but Guyton recorded season highs in receptions and targets while tallying his third effort with at least 50 receiving yards over his last five contests. Part of that extra volume was due to the Chargers furiously attempting a double-digit fourth quarter comeback, but it underscores what had been an encouraging month of December for Guyton after what looked liked a subpar season for the 24-year-old. That being said, it's hard to have much optimism from a fantasy standpoint moving forward for Guyton, who under the Anthony Lynn last season saw a high volume of snaps only for Joe Lombardi's scheme to effectively neutralize the speedster in 2021. The emergence of rookie third-round pick Joshua Palmer also factored into Guyton's downturn as the duo essentially split reps as the team's No. 3 pass catcher by the end of October. A restricted free agent this offseason, expect Guyton to be retained on a short-term deal as a depth piece capable of starting if pressed into action.

    Smythe put together the best statistical season of his career at an opportune junction, as both he and Mike Gesicki are scheduled for free agency this offseason. As a solid blocker and a capable, if unspectacular, receiver, Smythe shouldn't have much difficulty drumming up interest if he does hit the open market.

    Chargers' Jared Cook: Finishes season with 48 catches
    5h ago

    Cook tallied four receptions on seven targets for 80 yards in Sunday's 35-32 overtime loss to the Raiders. The veteran tight end finished the 2021 campaign with 48 receptions for 564 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games.

    It's hard to say Cook disappointed in his first season with the Chargers considering he posted more receptions, receiving yards and 20-plus yard catches than his final year with the Saints, but he averaged only 11.8 yards per catch which marked a career low as a starter. Still, the 34-year-old was more or less able to fill the massive vacuum left by the departure of Hunter Henry. It'll be interesting to see what the team opts to do at tight end next season. Donald Parham quietly emerged as a capable red-zone threat this year and was beginning to pick up steam as a reliable pass catcher before suffering a concussion in Week 15, ending his season. It's possible Parham could step into the starting role if healthy, leaving Cook -- who signed a one-year deal with the Chargers this offseason -- looking for another team to extend his career.

  • John Bates WAS TE
    Football Team's John Bates: Finishes year with key role
    5h ago

    Bates finished his 2021 rookie campaign with 20 catches for 249 yards and a touchdown on 25 targets, starting eight of 17 games.

    The fourth-round pick never missed a game, but it wasn't until Week 10 that he saw more than 17 snaps or one target in a contest. From that point on, he played over half of Washington's snaps in each game, averaging 2.0 catches for 26.4 yards on 2.6 targets over the final nine games of the season. Bates may fall back to a reserve role in his second year, however, as Logan Thomas' season-ending ACL injury was a big factor in the rookie taking so many snaps. That could leave Bates as Washington's No. 1 TE for the offseason program, if nothing else, depending on the team's transactions this spring. Plus, the timing and severity of Thomas' injury mean he's no lock to be ready for Week 1 of 2022.

    Swaim recorded one reception on one target for two yards in Sunday's 28-25 win over the Texans.

    Swaim continued to make minimal impact on the Titans' offense, as he failed to surpass 10 receiving yards for the fourth consecutive game. While he recorded at least three receptions in seven of his 16 contests, he still managed only 210 yards on 31 catches for the campaign. Meanwhile, the recent re-emergence of Anthony Firkser likely means that Swaim will only take a further step back during the Titans' playoff run. Once the season concludes, Swaim will be a free agent, though he could be a fit to return to Tennessee on a short contract.

    McManus connected on his only field-goal attempt, while making all three of his extra-point attempts in Saturday's 28-24 loss to the Chiefs.

    McManus ended the season on a high note, making every kick in a close game with the Chiefs. On the year, McManus made 26 of 31 field-goal attempts and missed just one of his 34 extra-point attempts. The 30-year-old could have had a much bigger year if the Denver offense didn't struggle to move the ball as much as it did in 2021, so improvements on that side of the ball could go a long way in providing a boost to McManus' scoring opportunities. The veteran is under contract until he becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2025, so barring injury, he'll be a kicking for the Broncos in 2022.

    McLaughlin did not attempt a field goal and converted all three extra-point kicks in Week 18's 21-16 win over the Bengals.

    McLaughlin converted his final seven kicks (all extra points) of the season, but a spate of misses in the second half left his hold on the job tenuous. A waiver wire pickup in the offseason, the 25-year-old McLaughlin won the job out of camp and initially stabilized Cleveland's shaky kicking game before cracks emerged. He made 15 of 21 field-goal attempts and missed six of 10 between 40 and 49 yards. There's a reason why he's been with six organizations in six NFL seasons. The Browns are likely to hold a kicker competition next summer, which could include McLaughlin if they choose to re-sign him. Cleveland general manager Andrew Berry did not rule out drafting a kicker, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports, and the team signed kicker Chris Blewitt to a reserve/future contract.

The 25-year-old served as Jacksonville's kicker for 14 games, and he went 21-for-24 on field goals and 13-for-15 on extra points.

While he started the year slow and took some blame as one of the veteran leaders of an underperforming defense, Fuller ultimately put together another solid campaign, tying for sixth in the league in passes defended and getting the second-best PFF grade (81.5) of his career. He'll turn 27 in February and should be back as a key starter next year, with two seasons remaining on a four-year, $40 million contract.
