NFL Recent Player News
|11/21/2018||Chase Daniel, Chi, QB|
|Daniel is expected to start at quarterback for the Bears' Thanksgiving Day game at Detroit with Mitchell Trubisky doubtful with a right shoulder injury.
Analysis: Daniel has started just two games in nine NFL seasons and none since the 2014 finale, while then a member of the Chiefs. The 32-year-old is well-versed in Matt Nagy's offense, though, after spending the 2013-15 seasons with Kansas City while Nagy was the quarterbacks coach.
|11/20/2018||Tre'Quan Smith, NO, WR|
|Smith did not practice Tuesday, even though earlier reports had him returning on a limited basis.
Analysis: Smith's status for Thursday's game could be in question now as he deals with a foot injury. If he does play, he could put up some big numbers in a potential shootout against the Falcons.
|11/20/2018||Todd Gurley II, LAR, RB|
|Rams coach Sean McVay said Tuesday that Gurley has been limited by an ankle issue but should be fine with a bye week to heal up in Week 12.
Analysis: Gurley hurt his ankle early against the Chiefs and only finished with 55 yards on 12 carries without a touchdown. We expect him to be great against the Lions in Week 13.
|11/20/2018||Calvin Ridley, Atl, WR|
|Ridley was limited in practice on Tuesday due to a thigh issue.
Analysis: Ridley doesn't figure to be in jeopardy of missing the game against the Saints. He could be a nice play in what figures to be a high-scoring affair.
|11/20/2018||O.J. Howard, TB, TE|
|The Bucs have placed Howard on injured reserve due to foot and ankle injuries, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Analysis: Howard left the team's loss to the Giants with an apparently ankle injury. The Bucs will now turn to Cameron Brate, though Howard is a tough loss after recording at least four catches and 53 yards in five of his last six games, a stretch in which he's hauled in four touchdown passes.

|Malcolm Brown ran for 15 yards on four carries Monday in the Los Angeles Rams' 54-51 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.|
|11/19/2018||Mitchell Trubisky, Chi, QB|
|Trubisky (right shoulder) did not participate in Wednesday's walkthrough and is officially listed doubtful for the Bears' Thanksgiving Day game at Detroit.
Analysis: Chase Daniel is almost certain to make his first start since 2014 and the Bears will reportedly elevate quarterback Tyler Bray from the practice squad to serve as the backup. The short week likely factored in the decision to likely hold Trubisky out, so this is looking like only a one-game absence.
|11/19/2018||Geoff Swaim, Dal, TE|
|Swaim broke his wrist in Sunday's game against the Falcons and will undergo surgery, according to The Athletic. The tight end won't play in the Cowboys' Thanksgiving Day game against the Redskins.
Analysis: Swaim has been a dependable safety valve for Dak Prescott but is hardly an elite fantasy tight end, as he's averaged just 9.3 yards with one touchdown on 26 catches this season. The Cowboys have a few candidates to replace him, though none rate as must-adds.
