T.J. Lang Headshot

Lang is questionable to return to Saturday's game versus the Bears due to a foot injury, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Plagued by injuries all season, Lang's most-recent concern seems to have flared up. As long as Lang is sidelined, expect Don Barclay to slot in at right guard.
5:38 pm (EST)
Darius Slay Headshot

Slay has avoided a concussion and re-entered Saturday's game against the Bears, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

Slay exited earlier in the contest to be evaluated for a concussion but is apparently clear of symptoms. The Lions' top cornerback is available for the rest of Saturday's game in Detroit.
5:30 pm (EST)
Kemba Walker Headshot

Walker (wrist) will play Saturday against the Blazers, Rick Bonnell off the Charlotte Observer reports.

Walker landed on the injury list with a strained left wrist, but his status never appeared to be in too much doubt. The point guard played 33 minutes Friday against Miami, finishing with 25 points, five assists, four rebounds and two steals.
5:23 pm (EST)
Aaron Rodgers Headshot

Rodgers (collarbone), who was activated from injured reserve Saturday, doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game in Carolina.

Although the Packers tacked Rodgers onto the injury report Saturday, the lack of a designation is the final bit of information needed to pencil him in as the starting quarterback Sunday. In four career appearances against the Panthers, he's averaged 307.5 passing yards per game and posted a 12:2 TD:INT.
5:22 pm (EST)
Delon Wright Headshot

Wright reported "no soreness" in his shoulder following Friday's game against the Nets, Blake Murphy of Raptors Republic reports.

Wright made his return to action Friday after missing a month with a dislocated shoulder. The backup point guard played 16 minutes, finishing with seven points, two assists and a steal. Prior to the injury, Wright was averaging more than 20 minutes per game, and he'll now compete with Fred VanVleet for playing time off the bench behind Kyle Lowry.
5:12 pm (EST)
Michael Thomas Headshot

Thomas (knee) was downgraded to out and won't travel with the team to Buffalo, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Thomas was originally listed as questionable and was expected to play, but the knee injury seems to have acted up. The 28-year-old has been playing through a partially-torn PCL for a few weeks and his availability is subject to change day-to-day, and he will likely require surgery once the season is over.
5:05 pm (EST)
Christopher Tanev Headshot

Tanev (groin) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, per the NHL's official media site.

This move comes as no surprise, as Tanev is expected to be sidelined for 2-to-3 weeks due to a groin injury. The Canucks should release an update on the 27-year-old blueliner's practice once he's able to return to practice with his teammates.
5:00 pm (EST)
Darius Slay Headshot

Slay left Saturday's game against the Bears to be evaluated for a concussion, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Slay lasted just three plays before he had an evaluation in the sideline tent and went to the locker room. With the nature of his concern known, the Lions will follow the protocol for head injuries before making a decision on whether a return is possible. In the meantime, D.J. Hayden will line up at cornerback with the first unit.
4:59 pm (EST)
Chris Prosinski Headshot

Prosinski has entered the concussion protocol and won't return to Sunday's game against the Lions.

Prosinski looked shaken up following a first quarter tackle and went straight to the locker room after exiting the field. Deon Bush stepped in to replace him and should see a significant defensive role with Adrian Amos (hamstring) also inactive Saturday.
4:58 pm (EST)
Damien Williams Headshot

The Dolphins ruled out Williams (shoulder) for Sunday's game in Buffalo, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

After a limited showing at Thursday's practice, Williams seemed to test out the state of his left shoulder, but ultimately a lack of activity Friday and a doubtful designation for Week 15 sealed his fate. Out of the lineup for a third consecutive game, he'll yield the backfield to Kenyan Drake, who has reeled off 334 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown the last two contests.
