Latest Player News

Nick Perry is dealing with a significant hand injury and has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Impact

Perry suffered the hand injury during Sunday's win over the Texans, and its severity could impact Perry for weeks to come. He may be able to return in Week 15 against the Bears but would likely need to wear some sort of protective cast in order to prevent further injury.

Marquess Wilson (groin) didn't practice Wednesday, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

Impact

In his attempt to back up an eight-catch, 125-yard effort from Week 12, Wilson was stymied by constant snowfall Sunday against the 49ers and only lasted four snaps before sustaining a game-ending groin injury. He won't press his luck to start preparation for Sunday's contest in Detroit, but two sessions are left to make an impression on the coaching and training staffs. If he's deemed inactive, he may join Eddie Royal (toe) on the sideline, which could leave fellow wideouts Cameron Meredith, Deonte Thompson, and Josh Bellamy unfettered access to targets if the aforementioned duo had to sit Sunday.

Coty Sensabaugh (ribs) was not on the Giants' injury report Wednesday, SNY.tv reports.

Impact

Sensabaugh was sidelined during Sunday's game against the Steelers, but he appears to have practiced in full Wednesday and should be good to go for Week 14 against the Cowboys.

Brandon Wilds was promoted to the Jets' active roster from the practice squad Wednesday, Randy Lange of the team's official site reports.

Impact

Wilds will be buried on the team's depth chart at running back behind Matt Forte, Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson. The undrafted rookie out of South Carolina has yet to play a regular season snap in the NFL.

C.J. Uzomah (calf) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

Impact

Uzomah has missed multiple games due to the calf injury, and hasn't recorded a single catch since Week 6 against the Patriots. Tyler Eifert and Tyler Kroft figure to lead the way at tight end for the Bengals on Sunday against the Browns regardless of Uzomah's potential availability.

Eddie Royal (toe) didn't partake in Wednesday's practice, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

Impact

After missing practice the past two weeks and earning an inactive tag once, Royal is clearly taking a cautious approach with his injured toe. If he indeed sits out again Sunday in Detroit, he could be joined by Marquess Wilson (groin), leaving Matt Barkley to work with wide receivers Cameron Meredith, Deonte Thompson, and Josh Bellamy if the top two guys were forced to sit.

Mike Pouncey (hip) did not practice Wednesday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Impact

Pouncey has missed three consecutive games due to the hip issue, and at this point there's no guarantee he'll be able to return this season. Anthony Steen is slated to continue starting at center during Pouncey's potential absence.

Aaron Rodgers (hamstring) will be a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. "Aaron will be limited today, and then we'll see where he is tomorrow," head coach Mike McCarthy said. "Probably very similar to what he did last week."

Impact

With a balky hamstring in tow, Rodgers won't be subject to much heavy lifting outside of game days, hence the limited workload for the fourth consecutive practice. Although McCarthy left the door open for Rodgers to log an uncapped showing before week's end, the quarterback will very likely maintain a limited regimen, which would be the prudent approach with a Sunday afternoon showdown against the Seahawks on tap.

Kory Lichtensteiger (calf) has been designated to return from injured reserve.

Impact

Lichtensteiger was originally placed on IR following the Redskins' Week 3 win over the Giants when he suffered the calf injury, but he'll be eligible to return during the last few weeks of the season. The team demoted cornerback Dashaun Phillips to the practice squad in order to help make room for Lichtensteiger on the active roster.

Trevor Siemian (sprained left foot) was present for Wednesday's walk-through practice.

Impact

Siemian was inactive for this past Sunday's win over the Jaguars, but he has shed the walking boot that he sported last week and approaches this weekend's game against the Titans in the day-to-day category.

Stephen Houston was signed to the Ravens' practice squad Wednesday.

Impact

Houston potentially could be promoted to the active roster if reserve running back Lorenzo Taliaferro's thigh injury lingers. Houston, a former undrafted free agent out of Indiana, has yet to record an NFL snap.

Jarvis Landry (personal) did not practice Wednesday, the Miami Herald reports.

Impact

Landry had previously been working through a shoulder issue, but he was not listed on the Dolphins' Week 13 injury report, suggesting that he's now past the ailment. Meanwhile, the wideout's absence Wednesday was excused, with the report relaying that Landry is dealing with a non-football personal issue.

Curt Maggitt is in the league's concussion protocol as of Wednesday, Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Impact

Maggitt may have suffered the head injury during Monday's win over the Jets, but he'll have to clear through the protocol before potentially being able to return for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Luke Kuechly (concussion) was in pads and holding a helmet before the start of Wednesday's practice.

Impact

Once a player reaches a certain point in the concussion protocol, he's allowed to take on non-contact work in practice. If Kuechly indeed practices Wednesday, he'll likely be a limited participant, but the major hurdle he must surpass is clearance from an independent neurologist. Failing to do so this week would result in a three-game absence, the same number of contests he missed last season due to a concussion.

Zach Kerr is in the NFL's concussion protocol, Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Impact

Kerr must have suffered a head injury during Monday's win over the Jets, and he'll have to clear necessary tests in order to return for Week 14's game against the Texans.

Denzelle Good remains in the league's concussion protocol as of Wednesday, Zac Keefer of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Impact

Good suffered a head injury during Monday's win over the Jets, and the concussion symptoms are lingering into the week. He may be in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Texans as a result.

Clayton Geathers (concussion/neck) is considered week-to-week with no guarantee of returning this Sunday against the Texans, Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Impact

Geathers has missed back-to-back contests due to his neck and head injuries, and he's in danger of missing Week 14 as well. T.J. Green is in line to start at free safety once again if Geathers ultimately is held out.

Randall Telfer (thumb) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Impact

Telfer remains sidelined after undergoing thumb surgery in late November, but he could be able to return later in the week. With starting tight end Gary Barnidge dealing with a knee injury of his own, Seth DeValve figures to get most of the reps in practice at this point.

Derek Kindred has broken his ankle and will be placed on the NFI list as a result.

Impact

Kindred apparently suffered the ankle injury while training during the bye week, which will ultimately end the fourth-rounder's rookie season. Ibraheim Campbell will likely fill in as the Browns' starting strong safety during Kindred's absence.

Theo Riddick (undisclosed) didn't practice Wednesday, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Impact

Prior to racking up only 17 yards from scrimmage Sunday in New Orleans, Riddick averaged 87.5 such yards per game in four outings since missing two due to an ankle sprain. However, he made up for the dour production, yardage-wise, with a one-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter. Perhaps his ankle concern has become so bothersome that he must focus on rehabilitation rather than practice, but the imminent posting of the injury report will clarify the reason for his lack of work Wednesday.
