Patriots TE Martellus Bennett, who is questionable with an ankle injury, did not practice on Friday. He is coming off a 1-catch, 5-yard game.

LB Jamie Collins was officially removed from the Patriots' injury report Friday. He had been limited because of his hip, missing the Oct. 16 win over the Bengals.

Chargers injury report: OUT -- CB Craig Mager (concussion), LB Jerry Attaochu (ankle). DOUBTFUL-- S Jahleel Addae (clavicle). QUESTIONABLE-- TE Hunter Henry (concussion), WR Travis Benjamin (knee), WR Tyrell Williams (knee), LB Denzel Perryman (shoulder), TE Hunter Henry (concussion). FULL -- CB Brandon Flowers (concussion), LB Joshua Perry (knee).

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Final Jets-Browns injury report: My sense is that DE Mo Wilkerson and LT Ryan Clady will play. RT Breno Giacomini could be activated from the PUP list, which would allow Ben Ijalana to back up Clady. C Wes Johnson will start for Nick Mangold. CB Marcus Williams probably will start for Buster Skrine, but it's unclear who will be the slot corner. LB Julian Stanford is expected to start for Darron Lee. Bottom line: the Jets are pretty banged up.

Texans running back Lamar Miller (shoulder) said he expects to be out there for Sunday's game against the Lions, but isn't positive how much he will play. He injured his shoulder on Monday night against the Broncos and was in and out of the game.

A standing ovation for Will Smith's widow, Racquel, after her beautiful speech on his behalf at Saints Hall of Fame induction. Racquel, speaking publicly for the first time since his shooting in April, said he gave her the strength when it was hard to get out of bed. "Will, you always told me to shine my light for the world to see. Here I am shining my light on your behalf. ... I love you Will. Congratulations baby. You did it again."

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

Emotions high as Will Smith's widow, Racquel, accepts his Saints Hall of Fame induction on his behalf. Said he is here with everyone today, including their three children. "Today I am definitely his voice. I'm nervous. But for him I would do anything."

The Chiefs will go with Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West at running back in Indianapolis. They will have no plans to promote Darrin Reaves from the practice squad. Receivers Tyreek Hill and De'Anthony Thomas can play running back in a pinch.
