Jalin Marshall (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.

Impact

Marshall was concussed in practice last week and went on to miss Monday night's game against the Colts. He'll need to clear protocol prior to Sunday's matchup with the Niners in order to play.

Antonio Allen (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.

Impact

Allen suffered a head injury Monday against the Colts and will need to clear protocol in order to play this weekend in San Francisco.

Muhammad Wilkerson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Impact

Wilkerson injured his ankle during Saturday's practice but was still able to suit up for Monday Night Football. Thus, his absence Wednesday could realistically be maintenance-related due to the Jets playing on a short week.

DeVante Parker (back) was limited at practice Wednesday, the Miami Herald reports.

Impact

Though Parker appeared to be trending toward Week 13 inactive status, he suited up this past Sunday against the Ravens, logging 49 (out of a possible 62) snaps on offense, en route to catching three passes for 34 yards and a TD. With no reported setbacks, we'd expect Parker to be a go this weekend against the Cardinals.

John Brown (illness) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Impact

Brown's sickle-cell trait has reared its head in both practices and games since he was diagnosed just two days before a Week 7 divisional clash with the Seahawks. Aside from donning street clothes in that contest, he's at least attempted to play in each of the last five games, yet he's gathered in a modest seven of 15 passes for 98 yards and one touchdown as his snap count waned. On Monday, Arians noted that Brown will hover around 20 snaps per game until the Cardinals get a better handle on how to manage symptoms, namely fatigue and cramps, related to the trait. With such a workload for the foreseeable future, Brown can safely be jettisoned in the majority of leagues, if he hasn't been already.

Phillip Supernaw (concussion) does not appear on the Titans' injury report Wednesday.

Impact

Supernaw missed the two games prior to Tennessee's Week 13 bye, but his availability at Wednesday's practice suggests he isn't expected to miss any more time.

Daimion Stafford (hamstring) does not appear on the Titans' injury report Wednesday.

Impact

Stafford missed his first game of the season in Week 12 against the Bears but has since been afforded the Titans' bye in Week 13. Due to his absence from the injury report, the former seventh-rounder should be available this weekend against Denver.

Jason McCourty (knee) does not appear on the Titans' injury report Wednesday.

Impact

McCourty bruised his knee in Week 12 but he evidently recovered well during the Titans' bye. With his health now confirmed, the Rutgers product is expected to start at corner Sunday against the Broncos.

Julius Thomas (back) did not practice Wednesday.

Impact

Thomas's status for Sunday's game against the Vikings is cloudy, and if he remains sidelined this weekend, Ben Koyack and Neal Sterling would be in line to head the Jaguars' TE corps in Week 14.

Jurrell Casey (foot) did not practice Wednesday.

Impact

Casey is dealing with a sprained foot. While he has a chance to play this weekend, his continued absence at practice suggests expectations should remain tempered.

Neal Sterling (hip) practiced fully Wednesday.

Impact

Sterling will be fine for Sunday's game against the Vikings, though his fantasy utility in deeper formats is linked to the status of Julius Thomas (back), who did not practice Wednesday. The same applies to fellow TE Ben Koyack, who Sterling has worked in tandem with in Thomas' absence.

Bennie Fowler (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Impact

Fowler was unable to suit up in last weekend's matchup with the Jaguars. However, his appearance at Wednesday's practice suggests he likely isn't in store for a multi-week absence.

Eric Ebron (knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.

Impact

Ebron previously missed three games this season due to a knee injury, but his ability to practice in some capacity Wednesday reduces some of the uncertainty surrounding his imminent availability. Still, his status should be watched closely as the week goes on to ensure he's trending toward active status Sunday against the Bears.

Casey Kreiter (calf) did not practice Wednesday.

Impact

Kreiter, the Broncos' long snapper, was unable to play last week due to an injured calf. If he's unable to return to practice in time for Sunday's game against the Titans, Thomas Gafford will be destined for another appearance.

Brandon Marshall (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Impact

Marshall aggravated his hamstring during Sunday's victory over the Jaguars and could be in line to miss time.

Billy Winn (neck) does not appear on the Broncos' injury report Wednesday.

Impact

Winn injured his neck Sunday against the Jaguars. He isn't expected to miss any time, though, and his absence from the injury report only affirms that notion.

Head coach Dan Quinn told Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com on Wednesday that Mohamed Sanu (groin) likely won't suit up Sunday at Los Angeles.

Impact

Sanu was a mere onlooker at Wednesday's practice, only catching passes on the side, which equated to no practice on the Falcons' first injury report of the week. There's no telling if Sanu will buck Quinn's assessment and participate in one (or both) of the remaining sessions this week. If not, Sanu could be ruled out before week's end, thereby ensuring Taylor Gabriel is the nominal No. 2 wideout behind Julio Jones, assuming the latter plays through his bout with turf toe.

Brandon Flowers (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.

Impact

Flowers hasn't suited up the past two games as he remains under the NFL's concussion protocol. He'll need to get back on the practice field in order to have any chance at playing Sunday against the Panthers.

Asante Cleveland (concussion) does not appear on the Chargers' injury report to commence Week 14.

Impact

Cleveland missed each of the past two games with a concussion, but appears to have cleared protocol. Thus, he could be back in action during Sunday's game in Carolina.

Jatavis Brown (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Impact

Brown missed the past four games with an injured knee. His return to practice is an encouraging development for his potential return to game action this Sunday against the Panthers.
