Stefon Diggs Min - WR
News: Diggs (hip) did not practice Friday and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Chicago. (Dec 30)
Impact: It looks very unlikely that Diggs will play since he didn't practice all week. Adam Thielen and Cordarrelle Patterson will be the top to receivers with Diggs likely out. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 3:00p ET)

Doug Martin TB - RB
News: Martin is leaving the Buccaneers in order to enter a treatment facility, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "I was notified last week of a four-game suspension for violating the league's drug policy," Martin wrote in a statement. "I am starting the suspension immediately so I can enter a treatment facility and receive the help I truly need." (Dec 28)
Impact: In particular, Martin violated the NFL's policy regarding performance-enhancing substances, precipitating a suspension that will begin this Sunday and extend into next season. Under the rare circumstance that the Bucs earn a playoff berth, the ban will account for those contests. However, he'll more than likely miss the first three games of the 2017 campaign. Considering his bulky salary, he'll likely be handed the No. 1 gig at running back upon his return, but Charles Sims and potentially Jacquizz Rodgers, an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, will cover for Martin during his absence.

Doug Martin TB - RB
News: Martin will be inactive for Tampa Bay's final regular season game Sunday against Carolina, the Tampa Bay Times reports. (Dec 27)
Impact: Tampa Bay plans to sign Russell Hansbrough from the Giants' practice squad to add depth with Martin out. Martin was inactive for last week's game even though he was healthy and health isn't a factor for him missing Week 17, according to head coach Dirk Koetter. Martin's future with the Bucs looks in doubt as a result. Koetter wouldn't disclose his starting running back against Carolina, but Jacquizz Rodgers started in place of Martin last week.

Derek Carr Oak - QB
News: Carr suffered a broken leg in Saturday's victory over the Colts, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. (Dec 24)
Impact: Videos taken of Carr immediately after suffering the injury showed him saying that he broke something in his leg, and it turns out he was unfortunately correct. Carr will undergo surgery Sunday and will be out indefinitely, so it seems highly unlikely he will be able to play again this season. Matt McGloin is set to take over as the Raiders' starting quarterback moving forward. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 7:39p ET)

Carlos Hyde SF - RB
News: Hyde won't return to Saturday's contest at Los Angeles due to a knee injury, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports. (Dec 24)
Impact: Recipient of a low hit from cornerback E.J. Gaines in the left flat, Hyde fumbled on the 49ers' first offensive play of the fourth quarter. In the process, Hyde's left knee took a direct hit, and while he was able to walk slowly to the locker room under his own power, he exhibited a significant limp, according to Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com. A thorough examination should reveal the extent of the injury, but an absence in the season finale would place Shaun Draughn at the head of the 49ers' backfield. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 7:06p ET)

Derek Carr Oak - QB
News: Carr was helped off the field in the fourth quarter of Saturday's game against the Colts with an apparent right lower leg injury. (Dec 24)
Impact: At first glance this does not look good for Carr and the Raiders, who headed into the weekend atop the AFC West standings with an 11-3 record. Carr is backed up by Matt McGloin. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 6:41p ET)

Marcus Mariota Ten - QB
News: Mariota suffered a broken fibula in his right leg during Saturday's game at Jacksonville and will miss the rest of the season. (Dec 24)
Impact: After a third-quarter sack, Mariota's lower right leg was placed in an air cast prior to his departure from the field on a cart. With the devastating ruling handed down, the signal caller will finish with 3,426 yards, 26 touchdowns, and nine interceptions, all career bests through two seasons. More impressively, he remains unblemished in the red zone as a professional, with 33 touchdowns versus no picks. For the regular season finale on Jan. 1, the Titans will bestow veteran Matt Cassel with a spot start. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 4:48p ET)

Marcus Mariota Ten - QB
News: Mariota was forced out of Saturday's game against the Jaguars with an ankle injury. (Dec 24)
Impact: Mariota, who completed eight of 20 passes for 99 yards and a TD prior to suffering his injury, was replaced by veteran QB Matt Cassel. Mariota was carted off the field with an air cast on his right ankle, so this has the look of an injury that could sidelined the QB beyond Saturday. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 3:28p ET)

A.J. Green Cin - WR
News: The Bengals confirmed Saturday morning that Green (hamstring) won't play in the team's evening contest against the Texans. (Dec 24)
Impact: Per the report, the team wouldn't confirm that Green will also be held out in Week 17, with no announcement on that front expected until after this weekend. With both Green and Tyler Eifert unavailable Saturday, Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd profile as the Bengals' top pass catchers in Week 16. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 12:28p ET)

Randall Cobb GB - WR
News: Cobb (ankle) is inactive for Saturday's game against Minnesota, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. (Dec 24)
Impact: Cobb was limited throughout the practice week, but it's still a surprise that he's inactive. Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams will remain the top two receivers in Green Bay with Cobb out. Geronimo Allison or Jeff Janis may see a larger role as a result. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 11:40a ET)

Julio Jones Atl - WR
News: Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Monday that he's hopeful that Jones (toe) will be available for the team's Week 16 matchup with the Panthers, ESPN.com's Vaughn McClure reports. (Dec 19)
Impact: Jones has missed the Falcons' last two games with a sprained toe, though Atlanta has been able to win easily against two of the NFL's weakest squads in the Rams and 49ers. The Panthers should prove to be a more competitive opponent, and having Jones suit up for that contest would surely help the Falcons' chances of clinching the NFC South title. A clearer picture of Jones' health should be known following the Falcons' practices Tuesday and Wednesday, NFL Network's Tiffany Blackmon reports, but if he fails to show enough improvement to suit up on Christmas Eve, Aldrick Robinson, who had a career-high 111 receiving yards in the Week 15 win, and Taylor Gabriel would continue to take on additional snaps at wideout.

Aaron Rodgers GB - QB
News: Rodgers (calf) is active for Sunday's game at Chicago. (Dec 18)
Impact: Rodgers' mobility has been a bit compromised in recent weeks due to hamstring and calf injuries, the latter of which wiped away all practice reps in anticipation of this divisional tilt. With low single-digit temperatures and gusty conditions expected in the Windy City, he'll have to contend with weather not especially conducive to lower-body concerns. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the preceding induced the Packers to add a third quarterback (Joe Callahan) to the 53-man roster. Nevertheless, Rodgers will attempt to extend his streak with multiple touchdown throws to nine contests. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 11:34a ET)

Adrian Peterson Min - RB
News: Peterson (knee) is expected to start Sunday against the Colts, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. (Dec 18)
Impact: Peterson was officially activated from the IR-R on Saturday, and while he is likely to start, the number of carries he gets will depend on how his knee feels during the game. He has been out since Week 2 because of the injury, and if he is limited at all, Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon could still get meaningful touches. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 8:42a ET)

Adrian Peterson Min - RB
News: The Vikings officially activated Peterson from the IR-R on Saturday. (Dec 17)
Impact: Peterson somewhat surprisingly returned to practice this week, and announced his intention to play in Sunday's matchup against the Colts. Given the Vikings' struggling offense, and playoff hopes, it makes sense that Peterson would want to return as soon as possible. However, given that he has not played since Week 2, it is unclear what type of limitations, in terms of potential touches, the team will put on him. He could become the focal point of the offense again sooner than later however, due to the lack of other offensive options. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 12:20p ET)

Adrian Peterson Min - RB
News: Peterson (knee) told an online radio show, Dash Radio, that he plans to play Sunday against the Colts, Darren Wolfson of ESPN 1500 AM Twin Cities reports. (Dec 16)
Impact: The Vikings have not official activated him from injured reserve, but he's been able to practice all week. It sounds like he'll play Sunday, but he could be eased back into action. However, there's a good chance he quickly becomes the focal point of the offense again. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 2:40p ET)

A.J. Green Cin - WR
News: Green (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports. (Dec 16)
Impact: Green, who was once again a limited practice participant Friday, is thus almost certain to miss a career-high fourth straight game Sunday. In his anticipated absence, Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd are in line to continue to head the Bengals' wideout corps in Week 15, while top TE Tyler Eifert should also remain a vital cog in the team's passing attack.

Julio Jones Atl - WR
News: Jones (toe) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the 49ers, ESPN's Vaughn McClure (Dec 16)
Impact: Jones will miss a second straight game due to his turf toe problem, unfortunately leaving fantasy owners without his services at a crucial part of the campaign. The wideout was slated to test pushing off his toe at Friday's practice, and although it's unknown how that went, the fact that he's already been ruled out for Sunday suggests Jones still has some way to go in improving his condition. On the bright side for the Falcons, No. 2 wideout Mohamed Sanu (groin) is destined to return in Week 15, giving the team another option to go with Taylor Gabriel, Justin Hardy and company.

Donte Moncrief Ind - WR
News: Moncrief (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Minnesota, the Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star reports. (Dec 16)
Impact: Phillip Dorsett will likely get more targets as a result, but he's been limited by a groin injury in practice as well. The Colts may throw more to the tight ends this week and fourth-string wide receiver Chester Rogers could be more involved as a result. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 1:06p ET)

T.Y. Hilton Ind - WR
News: Hilton (back) did not practice Thursday. (Dec 15)
Impact: Hilton missed practice last week on Friday with a back ailment, but played a full game without any issues Sunday. This is likely a similar scenario, but check to see if he's able to practice Friday. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 4:11p ET)

A.J. Green Cin - WR
News: Green (hamstring) suited up for Thursday's practice, Jim Owczarski reports. (Dec 15)
Impact: It won't be clear until after practice how much work Green was able to get in Thursday, but his presence alone for a second straight day bodes well for his chances of returning to action in Week 15. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 11:29a ET)

Michael Floyd NE - WR
News: The Cardinals released Floyd on Wednesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. (Dec 14)
Impact: Floyd's season has been rife with miscommunication and drops on the field, but his Monday morning arrest for DUI was seemingly the last straw for the Cardinals. In his final campaign with the team, he hauled in just 33 of 70 passes for 446 yards and four touchdowns in 13 games, all career lows. Now subject to waivers, his talent may be too much for another team to pass up as he auditions for free agency in the offseason. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 3:28p ET)

Ryan Tannehill Mia - QB
News: According to coach Adam Gase, Tannehill (knee) only suffered a sprained ACL and MCL in Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. (Dec 12)
Impact: Tannehill was widely feared to have suffered fully torn ligaments in his left knee, so Monday's news that he only sustained sprains was better than expected. While that development will likely allow Tannehill to avoid needing surgery, the fact that he damaged multiple ligaments still makes it unknown whether he'll be able to play again this season. It's almost certain Tannehill will be sidelined Saturday against the Jets, which figures to result in Matt Moore starting at quarterback for the Dolphins. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 1:18p ET)

Ryan Tannehill Mia - QB
News: The Dolphins believe that Tannehill tore his ACL on Sunday against the Cardinals, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. (Dec 11)
Impact: Per the report, Tannehill is slated to undergo an MRI to determine if there is any additional damage to his knee, but at this stage, it looks like the QB's season is probably over and that the team will turn to veteran signal-caller Matt Moore down the stretch.

Julio Jones Atl - WR
News: Jones (toe) is listed as inactive Sunday at Los Angeles. (Dec 11)
Impact: According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, Jones' availability was contingent upon his ability to push off on his turf toe injury. After attempting a workout prior to Sunday's game, the training staff has come to the conclusion that Jones shouldn't press the issue. With Mohamed Sanu (groin) sidelined as well, Taylor Gabriel is the Falcons' presumptive No. 1 wide receiver. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 2:20p ET)

Theo Riddick Det - RB
News: Riddick (wrist) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bears, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. (Dec 11)
Impact: Riddick missed Wednesday's practice after injuring his wrist, but he returned with limited sessions on Thursday and Friday, so this is a surprise. Dwayne Washington and Zach Zenner will see an increased workload as a result. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 11:38a ET)
