Tyler Higbee (elbow) did not practice on Wednesday.
Higbee played 72 percent of the team's snaps in Week 11. His absence could simply be due to the Rams being on a short week after playing on Monday. If Higbee does miss time, Gerald Everett would see an increase in receiving work and Johnny Mundt would play more inline snaps.

Philip Rivers (toe) was held out of Wednesday's practice.
If you watched Sunday's game against the Packers, you noticed Rivers limping heavily along the sideline. He was able to finish the game and help the Colts overcome a significant second half deficit. We have seen Rivers consistently play through injuries throughout his career, so expect him on the field in Week 12 against the Titans.

A.J. Brown missed Wednesday's practice with a knee injury.
This is becoming routine for Brown after returning from injury in Week 5. The last time Brown faced this Colts team he caught just one pass for 21 yards on four targets. That will need to drastically change in order for the Titans to win on Sunday.

Alvin Kamara (foot) practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday.
This is becoming routine for Kamara, who either opens the week of practice on the sideline or with a limited session. Kamara always ends up playing that weekend. The only note this time is that Latavius Murray did handle 14 touches in Week 11.

Hayden Hurst did not practice on Wednesday due to an ankle injury.
Hurst did not record a catch in Sunday's loss to the Saints and faces another stiff matchup against the Raiders, who have only allowed one top 10 scoring week at the position to a player not named Travis Kelce. If Hurst cannot play, Jaeden Graham likely fills in as the receiving option with Luke Stocker operating more as a blocker.

Todd Gurley did not practice on Wednesday due to a knee injury.
We know all about Gurley's history of knee injuries, so hopefully this is just a rest day after playing in 10 games this season. However, Brian Hill did play 26 snaps on Sunday in comparison to Gurley's 23. Gurley has not cleared 63 rushing yards in five games and a very large portion of his fantasy production is reliant on finding the endzone.

D.J. Chark did not practice on Wednesday with a ribs injury.
This is a new one. Chark caught 4-of-8 targets from Jake Luton last Sunday for 41 yards. The Jaguars spent this week sending players to injured reserve, mostly on the defensive side of the ball, so it would not be shocking to see a few offensive players join them. We already expect the passing offense to struggle with Mike Glennon in control, but if Chark misses any time then Jacksonville will be in dire straits outside of running the ball with James Robinson.

Nick Foles (hip) was held out of Wednesday's practice.
It is too early to know if Foles or Mitchell Trubisky will start on Sunday Night Football against the Packers. The Bears were on a bye last week, so it is not a good sign that Foles missed the first practice ahead of Week 12 after seven days off.
