Derek Anderson Headshot

Anderson was held out of Monday's practice due to an illness, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Like Anderson, third-string quarterback Garrett Gilbert was also absent from the practice due to an illness, leaving Cam Newton as the only healthy signal caller on the roster. The Panthers will likely quarantine both Anderson and Gilbert to avoid contaminating Newton or any other players, but head coach Ron Rivera is hopeful that at least one of the two quarterbacks will be healthy enough to dress for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Garrett Gilbert Headshot

Gilbert was held out of Monday's practice due to an illness, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

As the third-string signal caller for the Panthers, Gilbert's illness wouldn't normally be anything noteworthy, but his health is of more importance with top backup Derek Anderson also being held out of Monday's session while he was under the weather. The Panthers will keep both quarterbacks away from the team while the two remain contagious, but head coach Ron Rivera is hopeful that at least one of the two will be healthy enough to back up Cam Newton by the time Sunday's game against the Jets arrives.

Tommy Fleetwood Headshot

Fleetwood closed with a two-over 74 on Sunday at the DP World Tour Championship to finish 11-under and tied for 21st. The result was good enough for Fleetwood to remain in the No. 1 spot on the Euro Tour's Race to Dubai standings as the season came to a close.

Fleetwood was mathematically heavily favored to win the Race to Dubai heading into the season's final event in Dubai this past week, and the 19th-ranked golfer in the world capitalized on the opportunity. His week was also highlighted by a pair of seven-under 65s during his second and third rounds. This marked six consecutive top-25 finishes for Fleetwood to close out the season, while he also notched wins at the HNA Open de France and Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship earlier in the year. Having also earned a PGA Tour card for the 2017-18 season, expect to see a bit more of Fleetwood in the United States moving forward.

Kelvin Benjamin Headshot

Bills head coach Sean McDermott said Monday that Benjamin didn't suffer any ligament damage to his right knee in Sunday's 54-24 loss to the Chargers, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.

Benjamin, who was making his second appearance with the Bills since being acquired at the trade deadline, suffered the injury while hauling in a 20-yard reception on the team's first offensive series. He was able to limp off the field before being carted off to the locker room and ruled out for the remainder of the contest. While it's a good sign that Benjamin's knee seems to be structurally sound, the Bills likely won't have knowledge about the full extent of the wideout's injury until after he undergoes further testing. If Benjamin is sidelined for the Week 12 matchup with the Chiefs, rookie Zay Jones, who led the team with 68 receiving yards against the Chargers, could be in store for another high snap total.
1:38 pm (EST)
Anton Rodin Headshot

Rodin was placed on unconditional waivers Monday in order to release him from his contract.

After coming over from his native Sweden ahead of the 2016-17 campaign, Rodin never quite gelled with the Canucks -- partially due to injuries -- and seems prepared to return back home assuming he goes unclaimed. The winger had been sent down to AHL Utica at the start of November and with no clear path to return to the NHL, likely approached the organization about his release.
1:37 pm (EST)
Pekka Rinne Headshot

Rinne will get the starting nod in the confines of Bridgestone Arena against the Jets on Monday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Rinne has been nearly unbeatable in the Music City, as he has posted a 27-6-6 record at home over the course of the previous two campaigns. Regardless of where he is playing, it's been a strong start to the year for the netminder, considering he has 10 wins in 15 outings along with a .922 save percentage. The Finn will square off with perhaps the hottest goalie in the NHL on Monday -- Winnipeg's Connor Hellebuyck.
1:33 pm (EST)
Jordan Weal Headshot

Weal (upper body) will likely return Tuesday against the Canucks, Wayne Fish of The Courier Times reports.

Weal only missed one game with this injury, so the Flyers haven't had to manage without him for very long. The winger has six points and 25 shots on goal through 17 games.
1:32 pm (EST)
Dan Bailey Headshot

Bailey (groin) was able to test the strength of his leg on field-goal attempts during warmups Sunday prior to the Cowboys' 37-9 loss to the Eagles, Matthew Martinez of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. "I'm definitely better than I was," Bailey said after the game. "It's still kind of a day-to-day thing."

Bailey missed his fourth straight game in Week 11, with veteran Mike Nugent once again handling kicking duties for the Cowboys. Nugent has been a capable replacement with a 7-for-9 mark on field-goal tries and an 8-for-8 success rate on extra points, and could stick on the Cowboys' roster to handle longer kicks and kickoffs if Bailey's leg isn't at optimal strength once the latter is deemed ready to return. Before Bailey's status for the Thanksgiving Day game against the Chargers is determined, however, the Cowboys will likely want to see how he fares during practices this week.
1:30 pm (EST)
Georgios Papagiannis Headshot

Papagiannis was recalled from the G-League on Monday, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports.

The second-year big man has not been a part of the Kings' regular rotation this season and has appeared in only four NBA games, logging a total of just 26 minutes. He'll likely continue to shuttle between Sacramento and Reno throughout the season.
1:29 pm (EST)
Niklas Hjalmarsson Headshot

Hjalmarsson (upper body) will return to action Monday against the Maple Leafs, < a href="https://twitter.com/reporterchris/status/932654768530505729">Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.

The longtime Blackhawk has played in 12 games this year, notching three assists and eight shots on goal. Hjalmarsson has averaged 21:42 per game, so the Coyotes will be glad to get his minutes back in the lineup.
