ESPN's Josina Anderson reported on Sunday that A.J. Green (toe) has a "good chance" to return Week 12 against the Browns.

Green tested out his toe in pregame warmups ahead of last week's Ravens game, suggesting he's getting close. He's missed the past two games, both of which have been Bengals losses. Falling fast, the 5-5 Bengals need Green back ASAP. His presence would be a massive boost to everyone on offense.

Updating a previous item, Tre'Quan Smith (foot) did not practice Tuesday.

Previous reports had Smith listed as limited, but it was corrected Tuesday evening. Smith has now been sidelined both Monday and Tuesday and is looking awfully uncertain for Thursday night's showdown with the Falcons. If he misses it, Keith Kirkwood and Austin Carr are next up at wideout.

Stephon Tuitt (elbow) said his strength is still an issue.

Tuitt missed Week 11 after suffering his elbow injury Week 10, and he's still feeling some of the effects. Tuitt is hopeful that he can play Week 12. Tuitt is Pro Football Focus' No. 9 ranked interior defensive lineman against the run.

Coach Matt Patricia said the Lions are "very confident" in Zach Zenner.

Kerryon Johnson (knee) is in danger of missing multiple weeks, so the Lions are looking to replace his 12-18 touches. The Lions, of course, have one-dimensional running backs Theo Riddick and LeGarrette Blount, but they combined for one yard on eight carries last week, so Zenner may be involved for Thursday's matchup against the Bears, who have only allowed 3.6 yards per carry this season.

Marcus Davenport (toe) was limited at Tuesday's practice.

Davenport hasn't played in a game since Week 8, but he's inching closer to a return after practicing for the first time since injuring his toe. When asked about his availability for Thursday's game, Davenport said, "I'm just taking it day by day, so we're going to have to really see how I feel." The first-round pick has four sacks and seven quarterback hits on the season.

Colts promoted RB Jonathan Williams from the practice squad.

The Colts are not known to be dealing with any running back injuries, so Williams will likely be a healthy scratch for Sunday's game against the Colts.
Nov 20 - 5:50 PM

Lions TE Michael Roberts (shoulder) has resumed practicing, getting in limited practices on Monday and Tuesday.

With Marvin Jones (knee) headed for his second-straight absence, Roberts could be in for 4-5 targets if he gets cleared.
Nov 20 - 5:40 PM

Marvin Jones (knee) remained sidelined on Tuesday.

Jones is looking likely to miss his second-consecutive game when the Lions host the Bears on Thanksgiving. With Kerryon Johnson (knee) also sidelined, the Lions will be severely short-handed against a team looking likely to start Chase Daniel at quarterback.
Nov 20 - 5:39 PM

Tre'Quan Smith (foot) returned to Saints practice on Tuesday, getting in a limited session.

This puts Smith on track to suit up Thursday night against the Saints. Boom or bust this season, Smith will have a good chance at booming against the Falcons' sub-par defense on the Superdome's fast track.

Speaking Tuesday, Rams coach Sean McVay confirmed Todd Gurley was limited by an ankle issue against the Chiefs but is expected to be fine going forward.

Gurley rolled his ankle early in the proceedings but stayed in the game. He was never announced with an injury. In one of the more tilting fantasy moments of the season, he failed to find the end zone in the Rams' 54-51 victory. With the Week 12 bye to heal up, Gurley will resume dominating against the Lions in Week 13.

Ryan Tannehill admits he is still experiencing pain in his shoulder but believes he can make "all the throws."

"I feel really good," Tannehill claimed. "Not quite 100 percent, but I feel confident and have made all the throws I’m going to need to make over the course of a game." It doesn't sound like Tannehill is particularly close to 100 percent after experiencing a setback a few weeks ago, but the Dolphins are desperate to move on from Brock Osweiler and keep their faint playoff hopes alive. Tannehill will be a barely-there QB2 against the Colts. Daily Slant: It's safe to say Tannehill will be low-owned in DFS this week, and for good reason: He's coming off injury without two of his receivers. For his price, though, he does have some tournament appeal as he'll likely be playing from behind as nine point underdogs in Indy. If he can rush for a score and throw for one or two TD's, he could be a GPP winner at miniscule ownership stacked with a couple of his also very cheap WR's.

The Chicago Tribune reports "plenty of signs" point toward Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) missing Thursday's game against the Lions.

Trubisky was officially "DNP" on Tuesday. Coach Matt Nagy sounded pessimistic at his presser. Were Trubisky to sit, 10th-year pro Chase Daniel would be in line for his first start since 2014. Daniel played for Nagy in Kansas City and raked in $7 million guaranteed last offseason, so Nagy clearly has some level of confidence. It would still be an across-the-board downgrade for every Bears skill player.

Broncos waived CB Adam Jones.

Pacman simply had not been seeing the field, playing 37 snaps since Week 4. Jones has endured in the NFL for a stunningly long time considering his early-career off-the-field issues but now 35, he is running on fumes. Perhaps a contending team will add him for depth and experience down the stretch.
Nov 20 - 4:25 PM

Calvin Ridley (thigh) remained "limited" in Tuesday's practice.

Ridley is frequently limited in practice but has yet to miss a game. He will remain an upside WR3 for Thursday night's likely shootout with the Saints.
Nov 20 - 4:11 PM

Bucs placed TE O.J. Howard on injured reserve with foot and ankle injuries, ending his season.

Howard suffered both injuries on the same play late in Sunday's loss to the Giants. It's the second-straight season the No. 19 overall pick of last year's draft will end on injured reserve. Howard was also felled by his ankle as a rookie. Howard was in the midst of a genuine breakout campaign, turning 34 catches into 565 yards (16.6 YPC) and five touchdowns. He cleared 50 yards in 8-of-10 healthy appearances. Still only 24, Howard will be a TE1 pick in next year's drafts. As for 2018, Cameron Brate is now a must add in all formats and will be in the TE1 mix from here on out. Daily Slant: Cameron Brate's extremely cheap on all sites and will be a big part of the Buccaneers offense against the 49ers. He's been irrelevant this season, but with had a couple of nine target games with Winston last season, and could be looking at similar upside this week in the highest game total (55) of Sunday's slate.
