NFL Recent Player News
|11/23/2014||Odell Beckham Jr., WR|
|Beckham has returned Sunday night.
Analysis: Beckham left briefly after he hurt his back early in the fourth quarter for struggling New York. Earlier in the game, he made a jaw-dropping one-handed touchdown catch that lit up social media and stunned the football world and even impressed NBA superstar LeBron James.
|11/23/2014||Ja'Wuan James, T|
|James suffered a stinger on a play in the second quarter Sunday against Denver and his return was listed as questionable.
Analysis: Jason Fox took his place.
|11/23/2014||Jamar Taylor, CB|
|Taylor is out after suffering a shoulder injury in the third quarter against the Denver Broncos.
Analysis: Taylor appeared to be clutching his left shoulder soon after a run play. Taylor was starting in place of Cortland Finnegan, who was deactivated with an ankle injury.
|11/23/2014||Aqib Talib, CB|
|Talib tweaked a hamstring in the first quarter against the Miami Dolphins and later returned.
Analysis: Rookie Bradley Roby took Talib's place on the left side. Talib has two interceptions this season.
|11/23/2014||Jordan Cameron, TE|
|Cameron is inactive Sunday.
Analysis: Cameron, who has suffered three concussions in less than two years, practiced Friday for the first time since Oct. 24.
|11/23/2014||Arian Foster, RB|
|Foster was inactive on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals with a groin injury.
Analysis: It's the second straight week that Foster has been out with the injury. Foster is third in the NFL with 822 yards rushing this season.
|11/23/2014||Dwayne Allen, TE|
|Allen is inactive Sunday against Jacksonville.
Analysis: He's suffering from an ankle injury.
|11/23/2014||Reggie Bush, RB|
|Bush is out for the second game in a row with an ankle injury.
Analysis: This could have been a big game for Bush, too, with the Patriots ranking among the worst in the league against the run.
|11/23/2014||Brandon Pettigrew, TE|
|Pettigrew is active against the New England Patriots.
Analysis: Pettigrew missed one game with a foot injury.
|11/23/2014||Doug Martin, RB|
|Martin is active against Chicago after missing three games with an ankle injury.
Analysis: Martin is still a risky fantasy play, though he could see a good amount of carries with rainy conditions possibly slowing the passing games for both teams.
|11/23/2014||Ben Tate, RB|
|Tate is active just four days after being claimed off waivers from Cleveland.
Analysis: Tate will backup rookie Jerick McKinnon.
|11/22/2014||Josh Gordon, WR|
|The Browns activated Gordon, clearing the way for him to make his season debut on Sunday in Atlanta.
Analysis: Cleveland officially activated the All-Pro from the exempt/commissioner permission list Saturday and waived backup outside linebacker Keith Pough. The roster move with Gordon was a formality after he was reinstated earlier in the week after serving a 10-game league suspension for violating the drug policy. He'll be on the field at the Georgia Dome when the Browns (6-4) take on the Falcons (4-6). Gordon led the NFL with 1,646 yards receiving in just 14 games last year.
|11/22/2014||Charles Brown, T|
|The New York Giants have signed linebacker Justin Anderson from their practice squad and have waived Brown.
Analysis: Brown, who was inactive for six of the first nine games, played poorly last week after replacing an injured Justin Pugh at right tackle.
|11/22/2014||Justin Anderson, LB|
|The New York Giants have signed Anderson from their practice squad and have waived offensive tackle Charles Brown.
Analysis: Anderson was added to the Giants active roster last weekend and played on special team against the 49ers. He was waived on Monday when offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz was activated off injured reserve and re-signed to the practice squad.
|11/22/2014||Virgil Green, TE|
|Green, the team's best blocking tight end, expects to return to the lineup this weekend after missing three games with a strained right calf.
Analysis: Green said he started feeling better last week but the training staff suggested he needed another week to let it fully heal so it won't be a lingering problem down the stretch.
|11/21/2014||Lamar Miller, RB|
|Miller is questionable for Sunday's game at Denver because of shoulder and knee injuries.
Analysis: Miller has played the past two games with the shoulder injury and was limited in practice this week. Undrafted rookie Damien Williams is listed behind him on the depth chart.
|11/21/2014||Jamaal Charles, RB|
|Charles totaled 122 yards and scored on a 30-yard pass Thursday.
Analysis: He has eight total TDs in six games.
|11/21/2014||Alex Smith, QB|
|Smith threw for 234 yards with two TD passes for the Chiefs (7-4) on Thursday, who had won five in a row.
Analysis: This snapped a two-game TD drought for Smith, who is losing value as a fantasy starter even in two-QB leagues.
|11/21/2014||Derek Carr, QB|
|Carr threw for 174 yards with a TD and no picks Thursday to help the Raiders earn their first win in more than a calendar year.
Analysis: Carr is nothing more than an emergency QB in deeper fantasy leagues, so don't get excited because he hasn't thrown a pick in two games.
|11/21/2014||Latavius Murray, RB|
|Murray ran for two touchdowns and 112 yards on just four carries Thursday against Oakland before leaving with a concussion.
Analysis: Murray's 90-yard touchdown run was the longest by a Raiders running back since Bo Jackson's 92-yarder against Cincinnati in 1989. It's especially disappointing to see him suffer a setback given how impressive he looked in limited action.
