apparently, bruce carter is also out --- didn't even know he was hurt.

I think durant returns to action

Lee and Carter out could mean a good opportunity for Wilber to put up numbers. 10 tackles last week and he's DE eligible at least on ESPN, probably on other platforms too.

that's a good angle, but I'd be a little concerned about snaps -- I'd expect nickel around 70% and wouldn't it maybe be sims and durant in nickel?

bennett was only on the field for 44% of the snaps for the bears, and durant wasn't even active when they were shuffling in subs later in the game.

ps

Lions CB Chris Houston (toe) is listed as doubtful for Week 15.

Titans WLB Zach Brown was benched during the first quarter of Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Cardinals.

Brown gave up a 26-yard completion to Andre Ellington on the second series of the game and was strapped to the pine. Third-round rookie Zaviar Gooden has taken over.

that's a pretty interesting development

Cowboys LB Justin Durant was forced from Dallas' Week 15 game against the Packers with a hamstring injury, and will not return.

The Browns are calling CB Joe Haden's injury a hip pointer.

Bills DT Marcell Dareus exited Sunday's Week 15 game against the Jaguars with an ankle injury and will not return.

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph suffered a groin injury in Sunday's loss.

Linebacker Zach Brown played poorly early against the Cardinals, which is why there was a quick decision to replace him, Munchak said.

Brown started and played only six snaps, replaced after a 26-yard completion to Cardinals running back Andre Ellington. Rookie linebacker Zaviar Gooden stepped in and played 43 snaps.

Brown is the team’s second-leading tackler (104) and is tied for second in sacks (four).

“We have high expectations for Zach,” Munchak said. “Last year, he came on strong the last part of the year with some big plays, with some sacks and interceptions, and things kind of fell his way, so we expected a lot from him.

“We feel the last few weeks isn’t quite what we want to see. ... We felt that when the game started off, he was a little flat, so we gave Zaviar a chance to play. We thought he was pretty solid when he was in there.”

Asked what Brown needed to improve upon, Munchak said: “A little bit of everything — (he’s) just inconsistent on what he’s being asked to do. He just needs to play better.”

00:03: The time on the left in the first half when the Packers ran their final play, the aforementioned 34-yard pass to Lacy. It was on that play that Ernie Sims suffered a hip injury - after "starting" MLB Justin Durant had already left the game due to a re-aggravation of his hamstring injury. That meant that the Cowboys would be down to their third MLB on the gameday depth chart, rookie DeVonte Holloman. Given that Durant and Sims were manning the position due to injuries to starter Sean Lee, Holloman was essentially the team's fourth string middle 'backer - and might have been their fifth-stringer had Bruce Carter been healthy enough to move to the middle.

For the final thirty minutes, the Cowboys ran a starting LB corps of Holloman (a sixth-round rookie who has missed much of the season due to injuries), Kyle Wilber (who spent all of training camp and the first ten games of the season as a defensive end) and Cam Lawrence (a try-hard camp body who eked out a spot on the practice squad).

Colts placed ILB Pat Angerer on injured reserve, ending his season.

Angerer was a healthy inactive in Week 15, but dealt with a knee injury earlier this year that is expected to require surgery.
