InjuryMissed practice all week with ankle injury

Active/inactive news: #Colts WR TY Hilton (ankle) is officially active. #Bills RBs LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and RB Chris Ivory (shoulder) are out. #Ravens RB Ty Montgomery is a healthy scratch. #Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde is a healthy scratch, too, and Kai Forbath will kick. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Hilton is active which is good news for the Colts offense. He does carry some risk and we don’t have any indication he’s going to be limited in any fashion so he’s probably safe to start against the Cowboys in Week 15.

LeSean McCoy not expected to play

InjuryHamstring injury

LeSean McCoy, listed as Q for Sunday due to hamstring, not expected to play vs. Lions, per source. Bills also could be without RB Chris Ivory, who won’t decide till pre-game whether he can play w/ shoulder injury. If Ivory can’t go, Keith Ford + Marcus Murphy would be Buffalo RBs. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Chris Ivory is also a gametime decision making the Bills running game a mess for fantasy owners. Marcus Murhpy could get some extended playing time in this game but wouldn’t be anything more than a flex option given. Quarterback Josh Allen has led the Bills in rushing the last three weeks.

James Conner unlikely to play

InjuryShould be good to go Week 16

On our NFL GameDay Kickoff show: #Steelers RB James Conner, listed as questionable with an ankle injury, is unlikely to play vs. the #Patriots, source said. He should be good to go Week 16, though. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Conner got in a limited practice Friday but is headed for the inactive list on Sunday against the Patriots. That will give Jaylen Samuels more run as the Steelers lead running back who will likely be limited in rushing attempts but should see 4-7 targets in the passing game. Samuels is a viable RB2 in PPR leagues.

InjuryBaldwin expected to play

The Seahawks have ruled out RB Rashaad Penny (knee) for Sunday’s game. LB K.J. Wright (knee) and S Maurice Alexander (concussion) are also out. RG D.J. Fluker (hamstring) is doubtful. WR Doug Baldwin (hip), DT Jarran Reed (oblique) and S Bradley McDougald (knee) are questionable (Brady Henderson on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: The Seahawks will roll with Chris Carson and Mike Davis against the 49ers who represent a neutral matchup against running backs. Carson, Penny and Davis combined for 24 carries, 144 yards and 1 TD on the ground in their meeting two weeks ago. Baldwin was limited on Thursday and Friday but is expected to play.
