Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano said the team blitzes because he does not think the team's defensive line can get to the quarterback on its own. "I'd love and I long for the day when we can have four guys put their hand in the dirt and say go get them," Schiano said. "Right now I think we'd all agree we don't have that level like we did in the past."

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (foot) is out of his walking boot and will attempt to practice Friday, Dec. 13. However, the team is more optimistic that RB Toby Gerhart (hamstring) will be able to play in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles than Peterson. Peterson will have to practice Friday in order to play Sunday.
FANTASY TIP: Be fully prepared to bench AD this weekend. If he plays, there's a good chance he'll be limited in some fashion. To be safe during the fantasy semis, you'll probably want to go in another direction.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (calf) said he expects to play in the team's Week 15 game. Bush said he is not sure how he aggravated his calf injury during pregame warmups last week.
FANTASY TIP: Bush should be in all starting lineups if he is able to play.

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said the team is more optimistic about RB Toby Gerhart (hamstring) being able to play Week 15 than they are about RB Adrian Peterson (foot) but that Peterson is a fast healer and is determined to play. Neither is expected to practice Wednesday, Dec. 11, but the team is hoping they will be able to practice by Friday, Dec. 13.
FANTASY TIP: Owners will have to monitor the practice participation of both players to get a better idea on who will be able to play. Peterson should be in starting lineups if he is able to play. Gerhart should be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option if Peterson misses the game.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Jordan Todman likely will start Week 15 if RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) is not able to play. Jones-Drew will not practice until Friday, Dec. 13, at the earliest.
FANTASY TIP: Owners will have to monitor the situation to see if Jones-Drew has any chance to play this week. Todman likely will be nothing more than a flex option if he starts.
