12/18 Player News

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (concussion) has been officially ruled out for Sunday nights game in New England. Matt Flynn will get the start.

TE Heath Miller (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Jets. Safety Troy Polamalu (achilles) has also been ruled out for Sunday and potentially miss the remainder of the regular season.

Vikings QB Joe Webb will get his first start Monday night with Brett Favre ruled out and Tavaris Jackson placed on IR. He’s not a start at QB this week but if your league has him eligible at wide receiver, he’s not a terrible play there especially in standard scoring leagues. Adrian Peterson (knee) returned to practice Saturday after missing the last few days and is going to be a go Monday night.

Broncos QB Kyle Orton (ribs,forearm) could get the nod Sunday but will have a short leash if he is unable to generate any type of offense. Rookie Tim Tebow would be next in line if Orton doesn’t go or is pulled.

Lions RB’s Jahvid Best (toe) and Maurice Morris (toe) were both limited in practice Friday but are listed as probable. Neither is anything more than a desperate flex play however.
