Redskins placed S Brandon Meriweather (toe) on injured reserve, ending his season.
The NFL's most notorious headhunter also happens to be an ineffective safety, though by his standards 2014 was a relatively good year for Meriweather. He finished with 55 tackles, three sacks, and three forced fumbles across ten games. Turning 31 next month, Meriweather will be a free agent this offseason.
Julian Edelman listed as questionable

Julian Edelman (concussion) was limited in practice again Friday and is listed as questionable for Week 16.
Due to the nature of his injury and the Patriots' unwillingness to reveal any injury-related info, Edelman's status is entirely unclear for Sunday's game against the Jets. The good news is Pats-Jets has a 1PM ET start, so we'll know Edelman's status early. Rob Gronkowski and Brandon LaFell could add a few targets if Edelman can't play, with Danny Amendola's role possibly increasing.

Dwayne Bowe expected to play Sunday

Dwayne Bowe (illness, questionable) didn't practice all week, but is expected to play Sunday against Pittsburgh.
Coach Andy Reid said he's planning on having Bowe out there against the Steelers. Pittsburgh is without SS Troy Polamalu and LCB Ike Taylor. If Bowe were ever going to score a touchdown, this week is as good a bet as any.

Kyle Rudolph (ankle/knee) is listed as doubtful for Week 16.
Chase Ford and Rhett Ellison will share tight end duties at Miami.
T.Y. Hilton not expected to play Sunday
T.Y. Hilton | IND
(December 19, 2014 3:14 PM EST)
ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells believes "it would be surprising" if T.Y. Hilton (questionable, hamstring) played Sunday at Dallas.
The Colts have already locked up the AFC South. From a postseason standpoint, the only reason they'd want to ensure a win in Sunday's game would be to avoid the No. 4 seed, which could end up as trip to New England in the Divisional Round. If the Colts are going to do anything in the playoffs, however, they need Hilton's hamstring healthy first and foremost. He's on the doubtful side of his questionable tag for Sunday's game at JerryWorld.
A.J. Green practices in full

A.J. Green (illness) returned to a full practice on Friday.
He'll be all systems go for Monday night's game versus Denver.
DeMarco Murray listed as questionable
DeMarco Murray | DAL
(December 19, 2014 2:41 PM EST)
DeMarco Murray (hand) is listed as questionable for Week 16 after getting in a third straight limited practice on Friday.
This was expected. It's also expected that Murray will be active and start Sunday's game versus the Colts. Fantasy owners should continue to monitor the situation and have Murray handcuffed with Joseph Randle, but it would be a major surprise if DeMarco weren't out there with the ones for Sunday's game.
Stanton might back up Lindley vs. Seahawks
Drew Stanton | ARZ
(December 19, 2014 2:39 PM EST)
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians suggested Friday that Drew Stanton (knee) could be active for Sunday's game versus Seattle to serve as Ryan Lindley's backup.
Arians confirmed Lindley will start. Stanton is dealing with ACL and MCL sprains in his knee, but the Cardinals obviously have very little confidence in rookie Logan Thomas. We still don't see any scenario where Stanton plays.

Ryan Lindley will be Seahawks Week 16 starter
Ryan Lindley | ARZ
(December 19, 2014 2:37 PM EST)
Despite Drew Stanton's (knee) "limited" return to practice, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians confirmed Friday that Ryan Lindley will start at quarterback in Week 16 against the Seahawks.
Lindley has been beyond horrendous any time he's taken the field in his three-year career. Seattle's fantasy defense should be fired up with excitement.
