A.J. Green exited Week 16 against the Broncos with an arm injury but returned after missing eight snaps.

Green got popped by T.J. Ward on Andy Dalton's pick-six on the Bengals' fourth offensive play of the game. Dalton threw the ball high, and Ward delivered the blow. The trainers wrapped Green's bicep with some sort of padding. He's not 100 percent, but owners can breathe with fantasy titles on the line.

Free agent QB Rex Grossman has rejected an offer to sign with the Browns for Week 17.

Grossman is choosing instead to spend the holiday with his family. We can't blame him. The Browns have nothing to play for, and Grossman isn't in need of a one-week paycheck at the league minimum at the expense of missing Christmas. The Browns will turn to undrafted rookie Connor Shaw vs. Baltimore.

Bengals declared WR Greg Little, WR James Wright, QB A.J. McCarron, OL Tanner Hawkinson, OLB Emmanuel Lamur, and CB Chris Lewis-Harris inactive for Week 16 against the Broncos.

None are real surprises. Little is a healthy scratch. McCarron is sick. Lamur has a hamstring injury, and Wright is battling a knee problem.

Ronnie Hillman (foot) is inactive for Week 16 against the Bengals.

Hillman was listed as questionable and a game-time decision. He should be back for Week 17 and the Broncos' playoff run as a change-up to C.J. Anderson.
Dec 22 - 7:12 PM

Emmanuel Sanders (illness) is active for Monday night's Week 16 game against the Bengals.

As expected. Sanders had been battling the flu all week, but looked good in pregame warmups. He's locked and loaded as a WR2.
Dec 22 - 7:10 PM

Peyton Manning (thigh) and Emmanuel Sanders (illness) are both active for Monday night's Week 16 game against the Bengals.

As expected. Despite being listed as questionable, both players were never in any real doubt for the Monday night finale. Inactive for the Broncos are RB Ronnie Hillman, LB Brandon Marshall, OT Paul Cornick, CB Tony Carter, OT Michael Schofield, TE Dominique Jones, and DE Quanterus Smith.

Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Eddie Lacy (leg) is "fine."

Lacy was rested late in Sunday's easy win over the Bucs with an injury. It was never believed to be serious, and McCarthy confirms that. "I have no concerns about Eddie," said McCarthy. He'll be good for Week 17 against the Lions.
Dec 22 - 6:34 PM

Chargers placed RG Johnnie Troutman (knee, ankle) on injured reserve, ending his season.

The Bolts will turn to UDFA Jeremiah Sirles as their starting right guard Sunday at Kansas City. Troutman's 2014 season ends with 15 starts. Pro Football Focus charted Troutman with atrocious grades in both run and pass blocking. Ideally, Troutman would return in a reserve role next season.

ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi expects the Browns to sign free agent QB Rex Grossman for Week 17.

We'd much rather see Terrelle Pryor or even Tim Tebow, but Grossman is probably the most sensible choice. He spent nearly three weeks with the Browns in training camp, and is known to be tight with OC Kyle Shanahan, with whom Grossman spent time in both Houston and Washington. It's not out of the question that Grossman ends up starting in Week 17 against Baltimore, though Connor Shaw is the favorite, assuming Brian Hoyer (shoulder) can't go.

Former 49ers draft pick Marcus Lattimore has re-enrolled at the University of South Carolina with a projected graduation date of January 2016.

He'll also take on an "ambassador" role with the university and its football program. Lattimore is still South Carolina's all-time leader in touchdowns. He tried to spend about a season and a half in the NFL recuperating from two devastating knee injuries, but couldn't get his body in optimal condition to play in the pros, understandably. Lattimore turned 23 this past October.

Following Sunday's blowout win over the Cardinals, Seahawks OL coach Tom Cable said Marshawn Lynch missed the first quarter because Lynch was "the sickest I've ever seen him."

Twitter conspiracy theorists came out in droves Sunday night to suggest Lynch had been suspended, but it sounds like Lynch was genuinely under the weather. Coach Pete Carroll corroborated Cable's story, saying Lynch was "trying to throw up but couldn't." The NBC telecast also showed Lynch being stretched out on the sideline between possessions, after entering the game. Lynch should be a full go for Week 17 against the Jekyll & Hyde Rams defense.

The woman accusing free agent DE Ray McDonald of sexually assaulting her claims McDonald did so after she passed out.

The woman says McDonald raped her after she "hit her head on the ground" by a pool, passing out. Her story gets suspicious when she admits she woke up the next day and continued to party with McDonald and 49ers OLB Aldon Smith. McDonald has not been formally charged with any crime.

The San Francisco Chronicle believes there's a "very good chance" the Raiders retain GM Reggie McKenzie for a fourth season.

McKenzie's first three years were an abject disaster, and his 2014 free agent class was an embarrassment. Oakland has some hope based on its 2014 draft, however, hitting big on first-round SLB Khalil Mack and third-round LG Gabe Jackson, and potentially on second-round QB Derek Carr and seventh-round CB T.J. Carrie. The Raiders are 3-0 over their last three home games.
Dec 22 - 4:36 PM

Coach Chuck Pagano stated Monday that the Colts will play their starters in Week 17 against the Titans, despite the fact that they can't improve or hinder their playoff seeding much.

Pagano, understandably, believes the Colts "need to build some steam" entering the postseason after Sunday's 42-7 loss to Dallas. Indianapolis is locked into either the No. 3 or No. 4 seed in the AFC. They've obviously locked up the AFC South, but can't get a first-round bye. Andrew Luck & Co. will be in play for fantasy leagues still going on in Week 17, and in DFS formats.
Dec 22 - 4:24 PM

Dwayne Allen underwent a Monday MRI on his knee.

The Colts are calling him "day to day." Allen missed two games earlier this season with an ankle injury. His Week 17 status is up in the air.
