    • Henry has been diagnosed with a...

      Henry has been diagnosed with a minor laceration of his kidney, putting his status up in the air for the final two weeks of the season, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

      Analysis: While it isn't quite clear when he was injured, Henry didn't make any appearances in the box score after the opening drive of the second half in Saturday's 30-13 loss to the Chiefs. He finished the night with only three catches for 28 yards on three targets, falling shy of four catches and 50 yards for the first time since Week 11. Should Henry end up missing Sunday's game against the Jets, his usual role likely would be filled by some combination of Antonio Gates, Jeff Cumberland and Sean McGrath. The Chargers do still have a slim shot to reach the playoffs, but internal injuries aren't to be treated lightly in any scenario.

      Amendola caught two of his four targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Steelers.

      Analysis: With Chris Hogan (shoulder) out Sunday, Amendola was on the field for 37 of the Patriots' 60 snaps on offense in Week 15, but the return of target-gobbling tight end Rob Gronkowski (nine catches on 13 targets) contributed to Amendola seeing less attention from QB Tom Brady than he did in Week 14, when the slot man hauled in six of nine targets for 76 yards. Looking ahead, Amendola figures to remain involved in the Patriots' passing attack next weekend against the Bills, but both Gronkowski and Brandin Cooks will continue to offer more fantasy upside.

      Allen (foot) will not return this season.

      Analysis: Coach Jay Gruden had originally said back in November that the plan was to bring Allen back before the end of the year, but the team is electing to take a cautious route with the 2017 first-round pick and leave him out for the remainder of the season. The former Alabama standout appeared in just five games for the Redskins during his rookie season, recording 10 total tackles and one sack.

    • Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said...

      Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Collins made it out of Sunday's 27-10 win over the Browns without any health concerns, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.

      Analysis: Javorius Allen's increased workload (13 carries) may have created some concern, but it seems the Ravens were merely trying to preserve Collins for more competitive scenarios. Collins actually held a 12-3 advantage over this teammate before Allen took the final 10 carries of the game. It is possible the Ravens find themselves in a similar situation this Saturday against the Colts, but Collins should at least have more early success in a better matchup. He's been healthy all season with the exception of some migraines, an on-and-off issue that's yet to cost him a game.

      Gould was perfect on all six of his field-goal attempts Sunday, adding an extra point in a 25-23 win over the Titans.

      Analysis: Jimmy Garoppolo has not only improved the 49ers' receiving options, but his presence has made Gould one of the best fantasy kickers with 15 field goals made over the past three weeks. The 35-year-old has been as accurate as ever, missing just one field goal (the other was blocked) and going a perfect 4-for-4 from 50-plus yards. San Francisco's offense will face one of their stiffest tests against the Jaguars' vaunted defense next week, so it would be realistic to assume a reduced number of scoring opportunities for the red-hot placekicker.
