Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (chest) returned to the Week 14 game against the Chicago Bears before the end of the first half. He fell on top of the ball and knocked the wind out of himself. The Cowboys took a timeout, and he ended up not even missing one play as a result.

Minnesota Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes (ankle) is expected to miss a few weeks due to an ankle injury.
FANTASY TIP: With just three games remaining in the regular season, he might be placed on the season-ending Injured Reserve list by the team.

Updating a previous report, the Minnesota Vikings sent the MRI results of RB Adrian Peterson (foot) to a specialist Monday, Dec. 9, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. It's possible that unless the specialist gives Peterson a clean bill of health, and can convince the team he will not do any further damage by playing, the team will shut him down for the final three games. Two of the games are on the synthetic home turf at Mall of America Field.
FANTASY TIP: If Peterson is limited or unable to play, Toby Gerhart figures to be the biggest beneficiary of more touches. He was solid in a relief role in Week 14. Add Gerhart as a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy play for Week 15 if Peterson is ruled out.
