Winston was on the wrong end of a huge hit from Brooks Reed as the Bucs inexplicably went for two after scoring a touchdown to bring them within 20 late in the game. Mike Glennon came in relief and will be looked upon should Winston miss time. It's still too early to tell if Winston will be available next week against the Bears but we should know more once Tampa Bay takes him though proper testing.
Having already missed eight games, Hopkins is eligible to return from injured reserve as soon as Sunday's game against the Cardinals. The Redskins may want to give him a bit more time to practice, but it sounds as if Hopkins could put Nick Rose out of a job before the end of the season. Rose has made 10 of his 11 field-goal attempts, albeit with just two of those coming from 40 yards or more.
Burgess played 71 of 76 defensive snaps Sunday, tying his season-high and allowing him to post the second-best tackle total of his career. He'll have a tough Week 15 matchup against the Ravens and RB Alex Collins, who has been tough to tackle of late.
It wouldn't surprise us if the Texans are simply managing Miller's practice reps here, a notion that would be solidified if he returns to a full practice Thursday. On the plus side, Miller's workload has been steady of late, with 22, 17, 15 and 17 carries over his last four games. He hasn't topped 61 rushing yards in that span, but more often that not he chips in some in the passing game, so at the very least Miller's fantasy floor is decent and he may be counted on this weekend, with likely Week 15 starting QB T.J. Yates looking at a daunting matchup on the road against the Jaguars.
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.
