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)
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)
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)
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.
4:52 pm (EST)
Kache Palacio Headshot

Palacio was signed to the Seahawks' 53-man roster Saturday.

Palacio has spent the bulk of the past two seasons on the team's practice squad. The 23-year-old is likely to be a depth linebacker for the Seahawks, but with Bobby Wagner (hamstring) listed as questionable and K.J. Wright (concussion) as doubtful, defensive opportunities could be available against the Rams on Sunday.
4:46 pm (EST)
Michael Tyson Headshot

Tyson was promoted to the Seahawks' 53-man roster Saturday.

Tyson was waived by the Seahawks in early September and has since been a member of the team's practice squad. The 24-year-old takes the roster spot of safety Kam Chancellor (neck), who was finally placed on injured reserve. Tyson should serve as a depth option in the Seahawks' injury-depleted secondary.
4:41 pm (EST)
Nick Rose Headshot

Rose was waived by the Redskins on Saturday.

Head coach Jay Gruden indicated Rose would compete with recently-activated kicker Dustin Hopkins for the job earlier this week, but that competition was apparently short-lived. Rose converted 10 of 11 field goals and 18 of 20 extra points with the Redskins, but was rarely tested beyond 40 yards. The 23-year-old may not see another opportunity as the 2017 season draws to a close, but should have a chance to prove himself somewhere come training camp next fall.
4:36 pm (EST)
Kam Chancellor Headshot

The Seahawks placed Chancellor (neck) on injured reserve Saturday, Tony Drovetto of the team's official site reports.

Head coach Pete Carroll is nearly three weeks removed from ruling Chancellor out for the remainder of the season, but the Seahawks avoided the obvious roster move with no clear needs elsewhere on the roster. The linebacker corps is bracing for potential absences from Bobby Wagner (hamstring) and K.J. Wright (wright), though, forcing the team's hand. Opening up a roster spot with the placement of Chancellor on IR, the Seahawks bolstered depth at linebacker with the promotion of Kache Palacio from the practice squad.
