Broncos DE Derek Wolfe (illness) is not expected to play in Thursday nights game vs the Chargers.
Wolfe suffered a seizure on the team bus just before Week 13 and was just recently released from the hospital. It is unlikely that he plays again in the regular season and has to be highly questionable for the Broncos playoff run as well. Analyst: Jeff Mans View Profile
Jaguars will place WR Stephen Burton on Injured Reserve, ending his season.
Burton's concussion that he suffered in Week 10 against the Titans must have been far more severe than initially thought. Granted this move was likely made in order to shuffle up the roster due to injuries to Maurice Jones-Drew among others. Analyst: Jeff Mans View Profile
This is more about taking Justin Forsett's place on the roster than it is about Maurice Jones-Drew and his injured hamstring. Still, Carter will provide some depth at the position. Fat, slowwwww depth. Analyst: Jeff Mans View Profile
Last Friday, Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew said he would “definitely” play in Week 15 after injuring his hamstring in Thursday night’s victory over the Texans.
The weekend seems to have clouded the outlook up a little bit. Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union reports that Jones-Drew said Monday that he hopes to return to practice on Friday, which is a schedule for the week that lends itself to a questionable designation more than a definite one.
Listen, I've hosted the show right after MJD for two years now and if there is one thing I have learned from listening to MJD's outlook on himself it is to not buy a single word of what he says. Last year he had a Lisfranc injury and told us that he would be back "in a couple of weeks." Please don't count on him this week and if he somehow manages to play consider it an early Christmas Present. Analyst: Jeff Mans View Profile
