Nelson Agholor (knee) is inactive, leaving the Eagles with just 3 WRs for MNF (Jeffery, Arcega-Whiteside, Ward). Eagles will play a lot of 12 personnel and hope for no injuries. Inactives: Agholor, Howard, Miller, Grugier-Hill, Herbig, Opeta, Barnett

Janoris Jenkins may actually have a different role Monday night vs. Eagles. Don't be surprised to see him playing out of the slot with Corey Ballentine (concussion) sidelined. That would leave Sam Beal and DeAndre Baker on the outside.

T Jared Veldheer, who came out of retirement two weeks ago, was added to the Packers' active roster, a source to ESPN's Field Yates. They had a roster exemption for Veldheer after claiming him off waivers. Backup G/T Adam Pankey was waived to make room.

After Jameis Winston's visit with a hand specialist this afternoon, the team is "optimistic" about him continuing to play this season, I'm told. ‬The issue was determining if he could risk further injury by continuing to play.

Jets injury report: S Jamal Adams (ankle) is a question mark for Thursday. Adam Gase said he's "not going to count him out," adding, "I know where Jamal stands with it. We just have to make sure we do the right thing with him." The Jets didn't practice today. If they had, Adams, TE Ryan Griffin (ankle), RB Bilal Powell (ankle/illness), DT Quinnen Williams (neck), and CB Brian Poole (concussion) would've been out, per Gase.

Positive news on the Le'Veon Bell/flu front: Bell is "pretty close to 100 percent," per Adam Gase. They're optimistic about Thursday. Bell no longer is contagious and is expected to be back tonight for a weight-lifting session. "The fact that they're letting him back in the building is a positive," Gase said. "So, hopefully, everything should be lined up to where he can play Thursday." Bilal Powell is battling an ankle injury and his own illness, making his status uncertain.

Darius Slay said he's blocked over 1,000 people on Twitter since Week 2. Say something negative, he said, and you're getting blocked. Permanently. Less so on Instagram. Joked that now he knows how LeBron James feels.

Golden Tate and Sterling Shepard will be on the field together for just the third time this season. In the two games they've played together, Tate has outsnapped Shepard out of the slot by a wide margin, 55-19. Shepard has outproduced Tate 10-64-0 vs. 6-46-1 in those games.

Frank Reich on kicker Adam Vinatieri, who will turn 47 years old later this month: "It is my understanding that Adam's mindset is he's not done. That doesn't surprise me. I love that."

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Matt LaFleur wouldn't have any talk about winning out equaling a first-round playoff bye. "You know what I'm going to say, right?" LaFleur said with a smile. And then several in the room said in unison: "Got to go 1-0 this week." LaFleur has taught the local media well and with the Bears coming up next he said: "We better have our mind right."

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

"Anytime you score 20 points, you always know there's more out there," said Packers coach Matt LaFleur. But it's not all on the QB, he said. He lamented misses plays and missed opportunities abound in yesterday's win over the Redskins.

Rookie CB Kyron Brown, a surprise starter yesterday who didn't finish because of a quadriceps injury, has been placed on injured reserve. The Jets called up WR Jeff Smith from the practice squad.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

Colts have placed kicker Adam Vinatieri and rookie receiver Parris Campbell on the injured reserve list. Vinatieri's 24th season ends with him making a career-low 69 percent of his field goal attempts. Campbell, a speedy receiver out Ohio State, broke his foot early in Sunday's game at Tampa. He had a subpar rookie season, having only 18 receptions for 121 yards in just seven games played.

Broncos coach Vic Fangio on rookie quarterback Drew Lock: "I do think he played much better (Sunday) than he did the week before, thought his passing was more accurate and more crisp than it was the week before ... I think overall he's had a good two-week start to his career.'' And Fangio added: "He's done well for two games, that's about all it is.''

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Matt Patricia, when I asked if he's been told that he'll be back next year, said he's not going to get into discussions he's had with ownership. He had said just prior that he'll worry about next year, next year.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Derrius Guice won't play this week because of a knee injury, interim coach Bill Callahan said. But Callahan said he did not yet know the results of an MRI taken earlier today. So he did not know the severity of the injury or how long he'd miss.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

Vic Fangio also said Monday tight end Noah Fant has both a foot injury -- "he got stepped on'' -- and what Fangio called a "little hip irritation injury.'' Fangio said Fant was still being evaluated by the medical staff, "but hopefully optimistic.'' Fant has also already set the team's rookie record for catches by a tight end -- 35 receptions through 13 games -- and has two 100-yard receiving including Sunday's win in Houston.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

On defensive end Dre'Mont Jones' injury, Broncos coach Vic Fangio said Monday: "It's a high-ankle sprain, we're not sure of the severity, could be that he might be able to play this week or it could be he could miss a couple weeks, the next couple days will tell.''

As a father of three, DeMarcus Lawrence's holiday visit to Children's Medical Center in Dallas with teammates, hits home. “It fills me up with joy and that's what the Christmas holiday is all about,” Lawrence said. “Spreading the love. Spreading the joy and being able to come back and give to the kids that are less fortunate, whatever they're going through in their lives, it's just really truly a blessing to show them that we are and their community cares.”

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

As one of the defensive captains, DeMarcus Lawrence is accepting blame for what has gone wrong in the Cowboys' three-game losing streak. “I testify and take ownership of those last couple games,” Lawrence said. “I haven't been playing like myself. I haven't been taking up a leadership role I should be taking. It's time for me to step up. The Lord has blessed us with another opportunity to make these playoffs and it's time to do so.”

Regarding Jameis Winston seeing a hand specialist: He suffered a small fracture in his thumb Sunday. He's dealing with swelling and soreness today. It's also impacted his ability to grip the football, which is why he came out of Sunday's game initially. The hand specialist will help determine long-term prognosis, Bruce Arians said.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

The Panthers (5-8) are on a five-game losing streak with Seattle coming to town. Says defensive lineman Gerald McCoy: ‘'How do you right your wrong? You beat Seattle.'' He is not giving up on the season. He is headed home to watch tape on the Seahawks. ‘'No fan is more disappointing than the people playing the game.''

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Bruce Arians said there is no tear in Mike Evans' hamstring. It's a pull. He said, "We're gonna let it bleed out. He was a quick healer when he had it in the spring. He'll be very doubtful for this week." Arians also said Jameis Winston will have a second opinion with a hand specialist on his thumb injury this afternoon.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers interim coach Perry Fewell, responding to cornerback Donte Jackson's claim that the two touchdown passes Atlanta had in his coverage area was "two horrible calls, two calls that we didn't call in those situations at all this week in practice,'' said:he has spoken to Jackson and that will be handled internally.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Interim Panthers coach Perry Fewell says the quarterback situation will be evaluated week to week but he still believes Kyle Allen gives the team the best chance to win. Allen will start this week.
