QB | Peyton Manning | Denver Broncos | Fantasy
Denver Broncos head coach John Fox said he was not aware of any health issues Peyton Manning may have been dealing with in the team's playoff game.

Running Back

RB | Knowshon Moreno | Denver Broncos | Injury, Fantasy
Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) was in a knee brace after injuring himself in the Division Round game last weekend, but he wasn't walking with much of a limp the following day.

RB | Jonathan Stewart | Carolina Panthers | Injury, Fantasy
Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (ankles) said he expects a full recovery from the arthroscopic surgery he had on his left ankle last week. Stewart believes the surgery will allow him to rehab both of his ankles during the offseason. He sprained his right ankle twice during the season and suffered a high ankle sprain in the left ankle.

Wide Receiver

WR | Brandon Stokley | Denver Broncos | Free Agents, Fantasy
Denver Broncos impending free-agent WR Brandon Stokley isn't sure about his future, but he'd like to remain with the team for at least the 2013 season. "I definitely would still love to play. I still love to compete and I feel this is the only thing that I do halfway good, so why stop now? So, for me, hopefully I get another opportunity," Stokley said. He was third on the team in reception touchdowns with five this year and was fourth in catches (45) and yardage (544).

WR | Greg Jennings | Green Bay Packers | Free Agents, Fantasy
Green Bay Packers WR Greg Jennings may struggle to find legitimate money on the free-agent market in the offseason after playing in only five regular season games this year. "I put Vincent Jackson last year up in the elite spectrum, a Pro Bowl-caliber player," a scout said. "He's also 6-foot-5 and still can do a lot more things. Greg can't compete with Vincent right now. I'd say the market is going to be much smaller than that."

WR | DeVier Posey | Houston Texans | Injury
Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said he does not know what the timetable will be for when WR DeVier Posey's (Achilles') will be able to return from torn Achilles' tendon.
