Charles Clay Headshot

Clay (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Following a three-game absence, Clay hauled in just two of three targets for 13 yards in last Sunday's 47-10 loss to the Saints, but with that contest under his belt, he could be more involved this weekend, assuming no setbacks with his knee. That's a scenario that could be in effect Sunday if the tight end holds up well enough to provide Buffalo's new starting signal-caller, Nathan Peterman, with a safety valve in the team's passing game.

Jerry Hughes Headshot

Hughes (shin) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Hughes avoided missing his first game since the 2011 season, and he'll slot back into his top defensive end role. However, Philip Rivers has been a tough man to sack this season, ranking third in the league in sack percentage (3.29 percent). Hughes hasn't had a sack in five weeks either, making him an unfavorable IDP option in Week 11.

Jordan Matthews Headshot

Matthews (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Matthews practiced to some degree most of the week, so this is a bit of a surprise. Since the Bills' passing attack has been inconsistent all season and will now try rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman at quarterback, perhaps the absence takes some of the guesswork out of things for Matthews owners.
2:36 pm (EST)
Clay Matthews Headshot

Matthews (groin) will not return to Sunday's game against the Ravens, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Matthews suffered the injury in the first half and was subsequently ruled out after a halftime evaluation. Kyler Fackrell and Ahmad Brooks will step in opposite Nick Perry at outside linebacker for Green Bay.
2:35 pm (EST)
Evan Smith Headshot

Smith is being evaluated for a concussion during Sunday's game against Miami, Jenna Laine of reports.

Depending on the results of this evaluation, Smith may be placed into the league's concussion protocol. For the time being, though, the experienced Kevin Pamphile will slot into the left guard position.
2:35 pm (EST)
Shawn Lauvao Headshot

Lauvao is questionable to return to Sunday's game with a neck injury, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Lauvao was questionable for Sunday's game as he has been dealing with a neck stinger since late October, and he appears to have aggravated the injury. Tony Bergstrom stepped in at left guard in his absence.
2:24 pm (EST)
Jamie Meder Headshot

Meder (ankle) won't return to Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Mary Kay Cabot of reports.

The out designation could signal long-term ailment for Meder, and he'll have one week to recover before Week 12's matchup with the Bengals. Expect more updates on this injury when the Browns resume practice on Wednesday, and Larry Ogunjobi will fill in for the time being.
2:15 pm (EST)
Marshon Lattimore Headshot

Lattimore sustained an ankle injury and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Redskins, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.

Lattimore would represent a huge loss for the Saints defense should he be unable to return. New Orleans is already without safety Kenny Vaccaro (groin), and De'Vante Harris and P.J. Williams will see increased workloads if Lattimore remains out.
2:14 pm (EST)
Terrell McClain Headshot

McClain injured his toe against the Saints on Sunday and is questionable to return.

McClain has rarely logged a full workload this season, only accruing 19 tackles (16 solo) and two sacks through nine games. Having a strong threat on the edges is important against a red-hot Saints' offense that features two top-tier running backs and QB Drew Brees. Until McClain can return, expect Anthony Lanier to take over his duties on the Redskins' defensive front.
2:10 pm (EST)
Clay Matthews Headshot

Matthews is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Ravens with a groin injury, Jason Wilde of reports.

Matthews had his first sack since Week 4 prior to exiting with the injury. Ahmad Brooks and Kyler Fackrell should see increased reps at outside linebacker if Matthews is unable to return Sunday.
