Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith (groin) was limited once again during practice on Thursday. The 24-year-old has been limited in back-to-back practices, which could possibly be for rest purposes. Fantasy managers should consider Smith on the optimistic side of questionable for the Week 13 matchup with the Tennessee Titans. This season, Smith has been a top-30 wideout, but the Titans have a good secondary. Fantasy managers should consider Smith a low-end WR2, assuming he plays. Otherwise A.J. Brown could see his usage skyrocket.
The Miami Dolphins have signed defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul off the New Orleans Saints practice squad. Pierre-Paul, who signed with the Saints on Nov. 13, will be heading to Miami following the season-ending injury to outside linebacker Jaelan Phillips. The 34-year-old played in his first game of the season in Week 12, totaling two tackles on 17 snaps against the Atlanta Falcons. Pierre-Paul will bring extra depth to Miami's defensive line and a veteran presence for the remainder of the year. In IDP leagues, he likely won't see enough playing time to warrant an add, even in deeper formats.
Miami Dolphins linebacker Jaelan Phillips (Achilles) was officially placed on the Injured Reserve list on Tuesday. Phillips suffered a non-contact injury in the Dolphins' 34-13 win over the New York Jets last week, which turned out to be a torn Achilles for the young defensive star. Before the season-ending injury, the 24-year-old was on his way to a career year. He had 6.5 sacks, 43 tackles (seven for loss), and 11 quarterback hits in just eight games this season. With Phillips now out for the year, Emmanuel Ogbah is likely to see more snaps for Miami's defense.
The New Orleans Saints signed veteran kicker Austin Seibert to their practice squad on Tuesday after Blake Grupe injured his groin during practice earlier in the day. Seibert appeared in one game for the New York Jets this season and has previously kicked for the Detroit Lions, Cincinnati Bengals, and Cleveland Browns. For now, the team is calling Grupe's injury minor but Seibert could get elevated from the practice squad for his team's Week 13 game against the Lions if Grupe isn't able to play through the groin issue.
New Orleans Saints kicker Blake Grupe injured his groin during practice on Tuesday and is now listed as questionable for a Week 13 matchup against the Detroit Lions. The injury is being called minor and Grupe still has a chance to play Sunday according to reports, but the Saints still worked out several kickers on Tuesday. That list includes Mason Crosby and James McCourt. New Orleans also signed veteran kicker Austin Seibert to their practice squad. Grupe's ability to get back on the practice field by Friday will be a good indication of his status heading into Week 13. Fantasy gamers rostering Grupe will want to begin thinking about having a backup plan in place in case he doesn't kick on Sunday.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Dee Eskridge (ribs) missed practice on Tuesday ahead of his team's Thursday night matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. Eskridge was limited on Monday and his downgrade on Tuesday isn't a great sign as to his availability heading into Thursday night, although it's possible that the Seahawks are just taking it easy on their kick returner. Eskridge's practice status on Wednesday will be a good indication of his status for Week 13 so stay tuned.
Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly (hip) was upgraded to a limited practice on Tuesday after he didn't practice on Monday. The veteran tight end injured his hip during his team's loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving but he's trending in the right direction ahead of a Week 13 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday night. Dissly's ability to practice again on Wednesday will be a good sign as to his status heading into Thursday night.
Dallas Cowboys tight end Peyton Hendershot (ankle) practiced fully on Tuesday ahead of his team's Thursday game against the Seattle Seahawks. Hendershot was designated to return from injured reserve a few weeks back and looks likely to make his return to the field after having not played since Week 3. Hendershot's return to action will likely cut into rookie Luke Schoonmaker's opportunities slightly.
Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss stands to benefit from Jonathan Taylor's thumb injury, starting in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans. Taylor will have thumb surgery on Wednesday and is expected to miss at least two to three weeks. Moss filled in nicely during the early portion of the season while Taylor was on the Physically Unable to Perform list while recovering from ankle surgery. If Moss is available, fantasy managers should make picking him up off of waivers this week a priority in all formats.
The New England Patriots re-signed quarterback Will Grier to their practice squad on Tuesday after they released him this past weekend. It was a bit odd that the Patriots waived Grier from the QB room with Mac Jones being benched yet again in the Week 12 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday. The Patriots didn't even really announce a starter in the lead-up to the Week 12 contest coming out of their bye. After another multi-interception performance and benching after halftime, it would be a surprise if Jones made the starter over Bailey Zappe in Week 13 against the Los Angeles Chargers. The 28-year-old Grier hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2019, but if things continue to get worse at the position for New England, we could see him in there before the end of the year.
Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons (illness) was added to the Week 13 injury report on Tuesday after he was unable to practice due to an illness. The Cowboys play on Thursday night for the second straight week against the Seattle Seahawks. We'll keep a close eye on Parsons' status for this week's game, but he's likely to suit up. The 24-year-old former Defensive Rookie of the Year continues to be a disruptive pass-rushing force in his third NFL season, as he currently has 11.5 sacks, 40 tackles (22 solo), 13 tackles for loss, 23 QB hits, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery through 11 games. The two-time All-Pro is a must-start in all IDP fantasy leagues if he's active. Check back on Wednesday to see if he's cleared from the final injury report for Thursday's game.
