Browns head coach Mike Pettine said QB Johnny Manziel's reps with the first team Monday was "part of plan," and is no reflection on QB Brian Hoyer who is expected to start in Detroit, but is not 100% certain he will.
If you read the note we have in the previous Manziel post here at Fantasy Alarm we told you not to blow things out off proportion. Pettine doesn't want a big media circus regarding his starting quarterback but he also wants to keep some sort of a fire lit under Hoyer's ass so he doesn't get complacent. The Fantasy Alarm NFL Draft Guide has Johnny Football ranked 34th amongst quarterbacks and that isn't going to climb just by getting a few first-team reps.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Weston Richburg (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 12.
Richburg is one of the Giants' best offensive lineman, and plays a pivotal position at center. The second year player left Week 10 with an ankle injury, and the bye week was not long enough for him to recover. Richburg is questionable for Week 13. Dallas Reynolds will start at center on Sunday against the Redskins. Analysis: Ben Diamond
Rams have waived TE Justice Cunningham.
Zach Hocker signed with the Rams as insurance for the injured Greg Zuerlein, who is questionable for Sunday with a groin injury. Cunningham does not have a reception this season. He could join the Rams' practice squad if he goes unclaimed through waivers. Analysis: Ben Diamond
