Perine slogged his way through an illness Sunday against the Chargers, notching 17 carries for 45 yards and four receptions (on four targets) for seven yards. When he departed with 13:38 left in the contest, he joined reserve running back Byron Marshall on the sideline. Marshall has since been placed on IR due to a hamstring injury, leaving Perine as the last man standing in a backfield that's already lost Chris Thompson (fibula), Rob Kelley (ankle) and Keith Marshall (knee) for the season. Perine should continue to receive a healthy dose of touches on a weekly basis with LeShun Daniels and Kapri Bibbs as the backups.
Johnson logged 56 of 76 defensive snaps Sunday, the most of any Bengals' defensive linemen. He'll have a tough time accruing more sacks in Week 15 against the Vikings, since QB Case Keenum is second in the league with a sack on just 3.58 percent of his dropbacks.
We'll have to see if Savage progresses to the point where he might suit up Sunday (even as a backup) against the Jaguars, but at this stage it looks like T.J. Yates will probably draw the Texans' starting QB assignment this weekend, ESPN.com reports.
Fejedelem was allowed his highest snap count of the season because starter Shawn Williams (hamstring) was ruled out. Williams was able to practice in a limited fashion Wednesday -- something he couldn't do last week -- so Fejedelem may be snubbed from having another high-caliber performance.
The Rams' medical staff must clear Woods before he can return, but he's been listed as limited on the team's last two injury reports, indicating he's closing in on his goal. Sandwiched between those reports was a questionable designation for Week 14 against the Eagles, something he may be able to avoid if he turns in a full practice Thursday and/or Friday.
The carries were the first of the Wyoming rookie's career. In fact, he received his first seven offensive snaps of his career in the game. With both Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard banged up in practice Wednesday, Hill might garner a closer look by the Bengals this week.
McGuire could still rally in time to suit up Sunday against the Saints, but given that the Jets promoted running back Akeem Judd to their active roster Wednesday, McGuire's Week 15 availability may truly be in question.
Miller sat out last week's game, however, head coach Bill O'Brien characterized the concussion as a minor one. Prior to the concussion, Miller had the best two-game stretch of his career, catching nine balls for 114 yards. If he can get back on the field this week against the Jaguars, he'll slot in at third on the depth chart.
Clowney typically misses practice time, but eventually plays Sunday, so this is nothing to fret about at this time. The fourth-year linebacker has a career-high nine sacks this season, a notable outcome given the losses to key personnel (J.J. Watt, Whitney Mercilus, Brian Cushing) on defense.
Evans was able to play 68 of 76 defensive snaps Sunday, but it was only because Vontaze Burfict (concussion) sat out. Burfict still wasn't practicing Wednesday, and if he doesn't play again, expect Evans to have another chance to post another solid showing against the Vikings in Week 15.
