Audibles Podcast: Players to watch on bad teams
Sunday November 30th, 2014

Who's in and who's out for Week 13 of the NFL season? We're tracking all the key actives and inactives for this Sunday's action.


Arian Foster, RB, Texans (groin): When Foster has been on the field this season, he has been borderline unstoppable, rushing for 822 yards in eight games. Sunday's matchup with the hapless Titans run defense offers another opportunity for a big day, even if Foster is at slightly less than 100 percent.

Jordan Reed, TE, Redskins (hamstring): Instability at quarterback and Reed's own nagging injuries have limited the second-year tight end's production in 2014. He will try to get back on track Sunday at Indianapolis, with QB Colt McCoy running the offense.

Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Giants (back): New York's emerging superstar was almost a cursory inclusion on the injury report this week, listed as probable as he participated in every practice leading up to Sunday's matchup with Jacksonville. Eli Manning should target him early and often. 

Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Vikings (knee, ankle): Despite being in and out of practice this week, Patterson will suit up in Week 13. He is Minnesota's second-leading receiver with 350 yards, although he has topped the 50-yard mark just once in his previous eight games. 

Mike Tolbert, RB, Panthers (knee): Inexplicably, the Panthers are right in the NFC South title hunt despite a 3-7-1 record and six-game winless streak. Their playoff push will get a little boost Sunday in the presence of Tolbert, who has spent eight games on short-term injured reserve.


Lavonte David, LB, Buccaneers (hamstring): Tampa Bay's defensive leader will miss a second consecutive game. Tampa Bay entered the weekend with David listed as questionable, but he was ruled out Sunday morning.

Jerick McKinnon, RB, Vikings (back): McKinnon broke the news Friday that he would be a no-go against the Panthers. The rookie has emerged as Minnesota's leading rusher -- 538 yards so far this season -- so the onus will fall on Matt Asiata and Ben Tate to keep the ground game moving in McKinnon's stead. 

Latavius Murray, RB, Raiders (head): Murray suffered a concussion during  last Thursday's upset of Kansas City -- he rushed for 112 yards and two touchdowns before suffering the injury. The Raiders ruled him out for Week 13 action earlier this week.

Jadeveon Clowney, LB, Texans (knee): Bordering on a lost rookie season for the No. 1 overall pick, who admitted he's feeling discomfort in his surgically repaired right knee. Clowney has played just four games for the Texans this season and has yet to record his first career sack.

Justin Gilbert, CB, Browns (illness): Another top-10 pick struggling through year one, Gilbert will sit Sunday. How much of a hit is that to the Browns as they take on Buffalo? Probably not much. Gilbert did not play any snaps last week. The Browns also will be without TE Jordan Cameron (head) and S Tashaun Gipson (knee), though they're hoping to have Cameron back by Week 14.
