November 28, 2017
Some Notes:

• Miami Dolphins running back Damian Williams will miss a few weeks with a shoulder injury. 

• New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett's season is over with a shoulder and hamstring injury. 

• New Orleans Saints tight end Coby Fleener's season is in jeopardy, as he suffered his fifth concussion Sunday. 

• Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin left Week 12 with a concussion.

• Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper left Week 12 with a concussion and a sprained ankle, so his status is up in the air for this weekend. 

• Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen returned in Week 12 but left very early due to a tweak in his foot.

• Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon will return this week.

• Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree will miss Week 13 and 14 with a suspension. 

• Denver Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian will start Week 13 for the injured and ineffective Paxton Lynch.
