Tua Tagovailoa was limited for Wednesday's practice with a thumb injury.
As you all know, Brian Flores benched Tua for performance reasons and not for injury, despite mentioning a foot ailment and now landing on the injury report with the thumb issue. Still, the expectation is for Tua to be under center against the Jets in what is (hopefully) a get right spot.

Jerry Jeudy (ankle, Achilles') was limited in Wednesday's practice.
Jeudy was on the injury report with an ankle issue last week and played through it, posting a measly 3-37 line on eight targets against the Dolphins. He'll be a WR2/3 for Week 12 against the Saints, assuming he plays.

Calvin Ridley (foot) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
Ridley returned last week and caught 5-of-9 targets for 90 yards in the blowout loss to the Saints. He should be good to go as a WR1 for Week 12 against the Raiders' poor secondary.

Julio Jones (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
It's a good sign for Julio's Week 12 status that he starts his week off with a limited session. Jones was hobbled through the second half of Week 11 against the Saints and has battled hammy issues seemingly all year. But if he plays, Jones is a cinch WR1 against Vegas' secondary.

Mark Andrews (thigh) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
It's the first we've heard of a thigh issue for Andrews, but his status for Week 12 against the Steelers -- now being played Sunday -- shouldn't be in doubt. The Ravens didn't actually practice Wednesday amid their COVID-19 outbreak.
Added 4:52 pm (EST)
Giovani Bernard (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.
This is the first anyone's hearing of a Bernard concussion, so perhaps it's a new issue that popped up Wednesday, similar to the D'Andre Swift situation last week. Bernard now has four days to progress through the league's strenuous protocols. If he can't play in Week 12, Samaje Perine is next man up followed by Trayveon Williams. It's another lost season for the Bengals.

K. Williams - DB
The NFL rescinded 49ers CB K'Waun Williams' two-game suspension.
The NFL cited issues with testing procedures, and Williams is eligible to play again after initially being handed the ban on Tuesday. Williams maintains he didn't violate the PEDs policy.
Added 4:08 pm (EST)
Sammy Watkins (calf, hamstring) practiced in full Wednesday.
Watkins has been out since Week 5 with various nicks and dings. He's looking to make it back this week against the Bucs. Watkins' return would be fantasy hits to Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson behind Tyreek Hill.
