Shawn Williams Headshot

Williams (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns, Richard Skinner of WKRC-TV reports.

It appears as though a hamstring issue that plagued Williams in Week 10 has resurfaced, as despite playing in Week 11's win over the Broncos, the safety will be held out against Cleveland. Both Clayton Fejedelem and Brandon Wilson will have to fill in at strong safety in Williams' absence Sunday.

Carey Price Headshot

Price (lower body) will guard the cage in Saturday's home game against the Sabres, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Price has been sidelined for the Canadiens' last 10 games due to a lower-body injury, and his owners will hope his extended absence will lead to better play upon his return to action. The 30-year-old netminder has struggled this season, compiling an ugly 3-7-1 record while registering a 3.77 GAA and .877 save percentage in 11 appearances. However, it's quite possible those poor numbers can at least be partially attributed to Price's lingering injuries, so now that he's back to 100 percent, he could return to form. Now may be the perfect time for fantasy owners to target Price as a buy-low option.
1:11 pm (EST)
Rishard Matthews Headshot

Matthews (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts after not practicing Friday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Rather than see his outlook brighten Friday after being added to the Titans' injury report Thursday following a limited practice session, Matthews' status for Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff is now very uncertain. If he is out for the contest, or limited, Corey Davis, Taywan Taylor and Eric Decker would head the Titans' wideout corps this weekend. It's worth noting that Matthews is the only player listed on the team's Week 12 injury report.
1:10 pm (EST)
Jake Dotchin Headshot

Dotchin (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

Dotchin is eligible to come back Tuesday against the Sabres, but there is no guarantee that happens. He has averaged 14:53 per game in ice time, but while he wasn't their most important defenseman they still have to replace those minutes. This could mean more time for Dan Girardi.
1:09 pm (EST)
Devonta Freeman Headshot

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Freeman (concussion) won't play in Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, William McFadden of the team's official website reports.

Freeman was a limited practice participant Wednesday and Thursday, but it sounds like he didn't do much actual work Friday in the Falcons' final practice this week. The need for a multi-game absence doesn't come as a surprise, considering Freeman previously dealt with concussions in November 2015 and August of this year. Tevin Coleman will get another shot to lead the Atlanta backfield, with Terron Ward serving as the No. 2 option. Coleman logged 68 percent of the offensive snaps in a 34-31 win over the Seahawks last week, matching his career-high mark from the previous game. His 21 touches also equaled a career best that had been established the week prior in the game Freeman suffered his brain injury. The veteran back will hope to clear the NFL's concussion protocol in time for a Week 13 game against the Vikings.
1:09 pm (EST)
Derron Smith Headshot

Smith (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Smith is in danger of missing his seventh game of the season. However, he isn't worthy of fantasy considerations with just one defensive snap this season, but he could have a higher contribution if Jabrill Peppers (toe) sat out.
1:07 pm (EST)
Ian Cole Headshot

Cole (undisclosed) didn't take part in pre-game rushes Friday and is likely to be scratched, Jonathan Bombulie of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Cole has only three points in 20 games, but contributes in both hits (26) and blocks (35). With Matt Hunwick healthy, Cole will get a day of rest.
1:06 pm (EST)
Carter Rowney Headshot

Rowney (hand) will return to the lineup Friday against the Bruins.

This is Rowney's first game after missing 14 contests with his injury. He's slated into the center spot on the third line in this tilt.
1:04 pm (EST)
Jalen Ramsey Headshot

Ramsey jammed his hand in Friday's practice and is technically listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports. However, Ramsey says he isn't playing Sunday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

It's odd to see a player ruling himself out before the team, so keep an eye on Ramsey just in case. The second-year pro has been playing solid football this season, accruing 36 tackles, 14 pass breakups and two interceptions, making him a key part of the Jags' top-ranked defense. If he's in face unable to play, expect Aaron Colvin and Tyler Patmon to see an increased snap count.
1:03 pm (EST)
Vincent Rey Headshot

Rey (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns, Richard Skinner of WKRC-TV reports.

Rey was knocked out of last Sunday's game against the Broncos with the hamstring injury, and there was no report of the linebacker being able to participate in practice this week. Carl Lawson is expected to see additional snaps off the bench in Rey's absence this weekend.
