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.

Medical experts believe Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is unlikely to be cleared to play in Week 15 because he is less than six weeks removed from suffering his broken collarbone. Complete bone formation typically takes eight to 10 weeks, meaning he'd be risking more serious injury if he played before the eight weeks. The Packers' medical staff is among the most conservative in the league in returning players to the field too soon. "We would need different results and different responses to be able to get on the field this week," Rodgers said.
FANTASY TIP: It's looking highly unlikely that Rodgers plays this weekend again, and depending on the outcome of the game, he could very well be shut down for the rest of the regular season. We fully expect Matt Flynn to start against the Dallas Cowboys.

Ivan Golde, attorney for Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch, said Lynch will take his driving under the influence case to trial, but it likely will be postponed until after the Super Bowl. The case stems from a 2012 arrest for driving under the influence.
