Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said RB Le'Veon Bell (concussion) will try to play in the team's Week 14 game.
FANTASY TIP: Let's see what kind of work he is able to get in on the practice field this week, but the fact that there is this much optimism at this point is a good sign for Bell owners.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) will have scans performed on his shoulder Tuesday, Dec. 3, to determine how much healing has occurred. The team intends to have the results back later Tuesday, which should determine whether he'll play in Week 14 against the Atlanta Falcons. Sources from the team say the medical staff is proceeding very cautiously, knowing Rodgers' collarbone could be reinjured if he returns too quickly.
FANTASY TIP: You'll have to continue sitting on Rodgers in hopes that he can return this weekend. The Packers medical staff is notoriously cautious with serious injuries, so don't be surprised to see him miss this week and maybe the rest of the season. Continue to cover your bases with a solid backup QB.

Carolina Panthers LB Chase Blackburn (foot) might be able to return to practice Wednesday, Dec. 4. Head coach Ron Rivera said Monday, Dec. 2, that it hasn't been determined if Blackburn will get his starting job back from LB A.J. Klein though he was playing well before the injury. "We'll see," Rivera said. "We're going to play the guys that gives us the best chance to win the game."
