Giants placed RB Devonta Freeman on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Freeman is already on I.R. with ankle and hamstring injuries, but he's ben eligible to be activated. That won't be the case. If Freeman tested positive, he'll be sidelined a minimum of 10 days. In Freeman's absence, Wayne Gallman has become an every-week RB2 with six touchdowns over the last five weeks. He gets the Seahawks in Week 13.

I. Wilson - OT
Titans suspended OT Isaiah Wilson for Week 13 against the Browns for violating team rules.
Wilson was already ruled out for the game with an illness. The Titans' first-round pick in April, Wilson's career has experienced a very messy start. He was popped for DUI in September and has already had two stints on the COVID list. He's played four snaps this season.

C. Linsley - C
Packers placed C Corey Linsley (knee) on injured reserve.
Linsley had already been ruled out for Week 13 against the Eagles after getting hurt last Sunday night. One of the league's best centers this season, it's an underrated loss for Green Bay. Linsley will miss a minimum of three weeks.

I. Ford - WR
Patriots waived WR Isaiah Ford.
Acquired from the Dolphins at the trade deadline for a late-round pick in 2022, Ford didn't play a snap for the Patriots. By cutting Ford, the Patriots made room for Donte Moncrief on the 53-man roster. Ford could be back on the practice squad.

Ben Roethlisberger (knee) is questionable for Week 13 against Washington.
Big Ben was listed as DNP Thursday with a non-injury, and a knee issue was added to his status Friday and Saturday. He didn’t practice all week. Ben isn’t someone who has to practice to play, but we genuinely don’t seem to have much info on which way this one will go. Odds would seem to be in Ben’s favor for suiting up Monday night, however, based on previous history.
Added 4:37 pm (EST)
Alexander Mattison (illness) is out for Week 13 against the Jaguars.
He had an appendectomy. Mattison has been phased out of the offense almost completely over the last month with Dalvin Cook racking up the touches. Ameer Abdullah and Mike Boone will back up Cook this weekend.
Added 3:54 pm (EST)
Dolphins activated RB Myles Gaskin (knee) from injured reserve.
Gaskin hasn’t played since Week 8 but is expected to be out there for Week 13 against the Bengals in his first game back from a sprained MCL. With Salvon Ahmed (shoulder), Matt Breida (COVID), and DeAndre Washington (hamstring) out this week, Gaskin could slide right back into 20-plus touches with Miami installed as heavy home favorites. He should be in season-long lineups.
Added 3:47 pm (EST)
D'Andre Swift (illness) has been downgraded to doubtful for Week 13 against the Bears.
Swift isn't going to play, missing his third straight game. In his absence, look for Adrian Peterson to grind the clock for the Lions and handle the money touches at the goal line as a TD-or-bust fantasy proposition. Kerryon Johnson will likely lead the backfield in playing time as a safer-floor but lower-upside RB3/4.
