St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter, CL Trevor Rosenthal and OF Oscar Taveras arrived to camp early Tuesday, Feb. 11.
The Cardinals as a whole will be trying to get that bitter taste out of their mouths after losing in the World Series to the Red Sox a season ago and these three players are a little anxious. Both Carpenter and Rosenthal are going to have immediate fantasy impacts this season, while Taveras is slated to be a call-up at some point later in the season. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Sam Bradford returned to practice Tuesday.
Bradford is done with the concussion but now it is all about how his shoulder feels. If Bradford's shoulder feels up to it, he will be the starter in Week 13 against the Patriots but Chip Kelly displayed doubt that Bradford would be ready. He said, "If you have some instability in your left shoulder . . . you're susceptible to something if you get hit." That's the key here, can Bradford take a hit and get back up on Sunday. Mark Sanchez would be in line to get another start if Bradford is unable to go but you should avoid the situation if possible in your Fantasy Football leagues. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Zach Ertz (concussion) is practicing Tuesday.
This is a good sign but he is not out of the woods yet. We will have to see if Ertz can get through a few more limited practices before he can be completely cleared of the concussion. We expect him to be back on the field this Sunday against the Patriots in Week 13. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Walter Thurmond is not practicing Tuesday.
There is no report from any of the local beat writers as to why he is sitting out of practice on Tuesday. He has split his time playing corner back and safety for the Eagles this season. The team could be giving him a day of rest before their match up on Sunday against the Patriots. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Terrelle Pryor is signing with Browns Tuesday.
It was a long road to end up right back where he started the season. Pryor had tried out for multiple teams around the league but was never signed. The Browns have decided to bring him back and continue with their project of turning him into an NFL wide receiver. Pryor has all the physical gifts you'd want in a wide receiver but can he make the transition. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Calvin Johnson is not practicing Tuesday.
This is precautionary for the Lions. It is basically every week that the Lions limit Calvin Johnson in practice and with good reason. He is their premiere player and they do not want to risk injury and assure that he plays on Thursday against the Packers. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Lance Moore is not practicing Tuesday.
Lance Moore was forced to leave the Lions Thanksgiving Day game against the Eagles with an ankle injury. He is obviously still feeling the effects and will be limited this week. You should consider him questionable at best for this Thursday's game against the Packers. Corey Fuller will get his snaps, if Moore can't go. Analysis: Drew Phelps
The Bills have placed DT Kyle Williams on injured reserve.
The move officially frees up a spot for the Bills to help replace Williams on the active roster. Williams had surgery on his meniscus last week which ended his season. The Bills defensive line has been torn apart by injuries and now will have to rely on recently signed players like T.J. Barnes, LaVar Edwards and Kevin Reddick. Analysis: Drew Phelps
