Rams announced they have promoted CB Kevin Peterson from the practice squad. They need help at the position with Kayvon Webster (concussion) and Nickell Robey-Coleman (thigh) on the mend this week. If they can't go, I expect Blake Countess and Troy Hill to replace them. The Rams had an open spot on the 53-man roster after waiving TE Johnny Mundt on Tuesday.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan says rookie C.J. Beathard will be his starting quarterback heading into Sunday's game against Seattle. Beathard's performance against the Giants a factor in that decision. Garoppolo will continue to get two out of about every 10 reps with the first team in practice as he works toward getting a better handle on the offense.

RB Kareem Hunt and QB Alex Smith are among the top 10 vote-getters in early fan voting for the Pro Bowl. Hunt is seventh and Smith 10th but each trails at his respective position. Smith is sixth among quarterbacks behind Carson Wentz, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Jared Goff and Russell Wilson. Hunt is third among running backs behind Le'Veon Bell and Todd Gurley. The only Chiefs player leading at his position is Tyreek Hill as a kick return specialist.

Officially, Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is listed as a non-participant in practice. The soon-to-be 32-year-old hasn't done anything football-related since Nov. 2 — the Jets' win over the Bills. CB Morris Claiborne (foot), DE Mo Wilkerson (toe/shoulder) and G Brian Winters (abdomen) were limited. This was Wilkerson's first practice since early in the season.

Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore was not present for the portion of practice open to the media Wednesday after he suffered an ankle injury Sunday. Left tackle Terron Armstead was present at the beginning but did not participate -- which has become his usual routine on Wednesdays. Everyone else participated, including LB A.J. Klein and S Kenny Vaccaro, which is a good sign they'll be able to return to the lineup this week.
