The Tennessee Titans have signed Cudjoe-Virgil from their practice squad and have waived wide receiver Rico Richardson.
Analysis: Cudjoe-Virgil joined the Titans in the spring as an undrafted free agent out of Maryland. He was injured in the Titans' first preseason game and placed on injured reserve, with the player and team reaching an injury settlement. The Titans re-signed him to the practice squad two weeks ago.
Smith has been downgraded and is now listed as out for the Atlanta Falcons game because of a knee injury.
Analysis: Smith was listed as questionable on Friday, but the team said on Saturday that he will be scratched. Smith was injured last week against Green Bay. He missed the first two practices of the week, but was able to do some work on Friday, giving the Vikings (7-3) some hope that he could be ready to face the Falcons in Atlanta. Smith leads the Vikings with 54 tackles this season.
Darqueze Dennard, Cin, CB
Dennard was placed on a season-ending injury list with a separated shoulder on Friday.
Analysis: Dennard was hurt during a 34-31 loss at Arizona on Sunday night. He was a backup most of the season, but started against the Cardinals because Adam "Pacman" Jones had an injured foot. Dennard had one interception and 16 tackles in 10 games.
Jeffery caught seven passes for 90 yards in rainy conditions on Thursday in Green Bay, though he was kept out of the end zone for the third straight game.
Analysis: He caught a Jay Cutler pass while falling out of the end zone, but he could not get his second foot down in bounds. Another ball thrown his way for a potential score zipped threw his hands on a diving attempt.
Forte finished with 44 rushing yards on 15 carries against Green Bay on Thursday in his return from a knee injury.
Analysis: He was mostly ineffective in his return after missing Chicago's previous three games. Forte's absence left an opening for rookie Jeremy Langford, who figures to steal carries from Forte the rest of the way. Langford carried the ball 12 times against the Packers and rushed for 48 yards and a touchdown.
Cobb had six receptions for 74 yards in the Packers' 17-13 loss to Chicago on Thanksgiving.
Analysis: Cobb continues to struggle, failing to score a touchdown in six of his last eight games. His targets have steadily dropped from 12 to seven over the past four weeks, and he hasn't put up 100 yards since getting a season-high 116 in Week 2 against Seattle.
Analysis: The 6-foot-4, 323-pound Bryant started all 16 games with the Jacksonville Jaguars last season, when he had 22 tackles, one forced fumble and two tackles for loss. Bryant, in his eighth NFL season, spent his first six with the Seattle Seahawks, who drafted him in the fourth round out of Texas in 2008. He was in Buffalo's training camp before being released by the Bills on Sept. 5.
LaMarr Woodley, Ari, LB
The Arizona Cardinals have placed Woodley on season-ending injured reserve.
Analysis: Woodley appeared in nine games, six as a starter before being injured in the Cardinals' Nov. 15 game at Seattle. The nine-year NFL veteran had 14 tackles, four solo, and one sack.
Joplo Bartu, Atl, LB
The Falcons have placed Bartu on waivers.
Analysis: Bartu started 27 games over the last two seasons under Atlanta's previous coaching regime but was mostly limited to special-teams duties in Dan Quinn's first year. He recorded just 11 tackles in seven games this season.
Johnson tied a career high with three touchdown catches in Thursday's easy win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: Listed questionable coming into the contest, Johnson proceeded to abuse the Eagles' secondary for 93 yards on eight catches. Though this hasn't been one of his best seasons, he's now had at least 81 yards in six straight games.
Analysis: Matt Bryant injured his quad during Wednesday's practice, so Graham may be filling in for Sunday's game against Minnesota. The well-traveled kicker made 19 of 22 field goals for New Orleans last season but has yet to play in 2015.
