Johnny Manziel still might take some snaps in Week One against the Steelers. Browns coach Mike Pettine told Ross Tucker on SiriusXM NFL Radio that a Manziel package is on the table. We could potentially look at a two-quarterback system down the road, Pettine said.

Oh jeez. Here we go. A day ago there was no specific package set up for Manziel and now, likely because or moronic public backlash from idiots who don't understand the difficulty in becoming a legit NFL quarterback, Pettine is back-pedaling and talking about giving Manziel early work. That couldn't be a worse plan. Brian Hoyer is perfectly capable of captaining this ship and Pettine needs to sac-up and stand by his decision. Manziel is not ready and everyone knows it. Pettine is making a major mistake here as he gets his coaching feet wet.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Patriots have waived LB Eric Martin.

Eric Martin has mostly played special teams for the Patriots but he was released by New England. Martin has three special-teams tackles over the last two games but with a myriad of injuries to the receivers, New England needs his spot to fill other needs. Martin will be able to catch on with another team if there is interest.  Analysis: Greg Jewett

Johnny Manziel could be inactive for Browns on Monday night .

As the downward spiral continues, Johnny Manziel may be inactive for the Browns game with Baltimore on Monday night. After a video went viral of Manziel partying, he has not only been demoted to third string, but he may not suit up on Monday. Austin Davis has moved to the back-up spot over Manziel. Manziel is 1-2 as a starter for Cleveland but may not play again unless necessary this season.  Analysis: Greg Jewett

Tyson Chandler (illness) will start Friday night.

After sitting out on Wednesday due to an illness, Tyson Chandler will start on Friday night for the Suns. This will shift Alex Len back to the bench. Chandler is averaging 5.4 points and 9.3 rebounds per game this year for Phoenix.  Analysis: Greg Jewett

Rams K Greg Zuerlein (groin) was limited in Friday's practice.

As a late addition the injury report, K Greg Zuerlein may have been hurt during practice this week. Zuerlein was limited in practice due to a groin injury. The Rams have a tough match-up, a struggling offense and Zuerlein is 15-for-23 this year on field goals so if you have another option at kicker it is advised to use him over "Greg the Leg".  Analysis: Greg Jewett

Dolphins optimistic about Jarvis Landry's chances of playing Week 12.

After injuring his knee in Week 11, it has been a difficult week at practice to figure out Jarvis Landry's status for Week 12. Landry sat out on Friday but his coach feels that Landry will be able to play on Sunday. Landry has caught 63 passes for 651 yards with five touchdowns this season. If he does play on Sunday, Landry probably will not be returning kicks in order to preserve his health.  Analysis: Greg Jewett

Mo Williams will start Friday at PG.

After returning to the Cavaliers lineup on Wednesday, Mo Williams will once again start at point guard on Friday night. Williams' ankle seems healthy once again. He has averaged 15.5 points, 3.4 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game for Cleveland.  Analysis: Greg Jewett

Saints have ruled out CB Damian Swann for Week 12.

Damian Swann has not played since suffering a concussion on November 1st against the Giants. Swann is needed to help the failing pass defense in New Orleans. He did some light work while reporters were at practice but Swann will not return until Week 13 at the earliest as he has been ruled out this week as the Saints will face the Texans.  Analysis: Greg Jewett

Michael Williams (knee) is questionable for Week 12.

Not only is MIchael Williams listed as questionable for the Patriots in Week 12, but New England has signed a tight end off the practice squad. This could signal Williams being out although he is more of a pass blocker than a receiver in the Patriots system.  Analysis: Greg Jewett

Danny Amendola (knee) is questionable for Week 12.

With the Patriots already short handed at wide receiver, Danny Amendola is officially questionable for Week 12 versus Denver. Tom Brady could use the services of a reliable Amendola but his status may come down to a game time decision. Factor this in with Amendola's past injury woes, and he may be best left on the bench for fantasy purposes.  Analysis: Greg Jewett

Jamie Collins is listed as doubtful for Week 12.

Jamie Collins has been out of practice for New England for over 20 days but he did return on Friday. Collins has lost weight due to a case of the shingles. His status for Sunday against Denver is doubtful. Having him at practice though, is a good sign for a very surprising defense and Collins will improve the line backing corps when he can return.  Analysis: Greg Jewett

The Steelers have released RB Isaiah Pead and promoted RB Fitzgerald Toussaint to the active roster.

Peed has only appeared in two games this season, none for the Steelers. Pead becomes a free agent hoping he can catch on with someone in need of running back depth. Analysis: James Grande

Ahmad Brooks (concussion) returned to practice Friday.

This is a good sign for the 49ers linebacker for Week 12. Brooks has been saddled with a concussion and was able to get back onto the field Friday. Brooks is second on the team in sacks with four. Analysis: James Grande

Travis Kelce is listed as questionable for Week 12.

Kelce is questionable for Week 12's game with an ankle injury. Kelce is the team's leading receiver and his loss would be a crushing blow for the offense. He ranks fourth among all tight-ends in yards and fifth in catches. Analysis: James Grande

Nikola Pekovic participated in shootraround Friday.

Pekovic was finally seen doing a little basketball activities for the first time this season. The Wolves will definitely benefit from getting Pek back when he returns. The teams front-court depth is slim and he'll be the perfect antidote for that. Analysis: James Grande
