Boston Scott (illness) is questionable for Week 13.
Scott has missed practice time this week due to his illness, and hopefully he’s feeling better soon and can play Sunday against the Jets. Jordan Howard (knee) is already out for the Eagles, but at least Miles Sanders is ready to go.
Jordan Howard (knee) is officially out for Week 13.
As expected, Howard will miss his second consecutive game with his knee injury. The hope is that he will be able to return following Philadelphia’s Week 14 bye.
Breshad Perriman is being signed to the Buccaneers’ active roster.
Perriman had been a practice squad call up for the Bucs, but he’s now being signed to the active roster outright with Antonio Brown suspended for violating COVID protocols. The big-play receiver is someone to keep an eye on in deep leagues.
D’Andre Swift (shoulder) has officially been ruled out for Week 13.
Jamaal Williams will lead the Lions backfield this week against the Vikings. Swift was called day-to-day after the shoulder injury suffered on Thanksgiving, but the second-year running back can probably be considered week-to-week. Detroit won’t want to rush him back if he’s at less than 100%.
Antonio Brown has been suspended three games for violating the NFL-NFLPA COVID protocols.
Brown is already set to miss the next two games because of his ankle injury, but now fantasy owners can expect to not have him for an additional game beyond that—leaving his earliest return date at Week 16. The determination was that AB misrepresented his vaccination status, so the league must have investigated and found he did indeed have a fake vaccination card—and teammate Mike Edwards is also being suspended three games for the same reason. Tampa Bay’s passing attack will continue playing through Chris Godwin, Mike Evans, and Rob Gronkowski until the day after Christmas when Brown is eligible to return.
Alvin Kamara (knee) will not play tonight, according to NFL Network.
New Orleans will also be without starting offensive tackles Terron Armstead and Ryan Ramczyk, so the offense will be far less than full strength for Taysom Hill’s first start of 2021. The Kamara news in particular is disappointing with a return seeming hopeful, but he’ll now miss his fourth game in a row, and Mark Ingram is back on the RB2 map. There would seem to be a decent chance Kamara is also out in Week 14 against the Jets before returning against Tampa Bay.
The Seahawks are signing Adrian Peterson to the practice squad.
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll announced the news at his Wednesday press conference. While Peterson will start on the practice squad, the full expectation is that he’ll be called up to the active roster when he’s comfortable in the offense. It’s interesting that the future Hall of Famer will be playing for two different teams this season after a short stint with the Titans. Peterson is 367 rushing yards from Barry Sanders for fourth on the all-time rushing list.
