NFL Nation colleagues evaluate the biggest harms all over the league for Week 17.
Scan through all 32 teams from division, or click here to jump forward to your Favourite group:
Chris Ivory (shoulder) was a complete participant in clinic, as he was the past a couple of weeks prior to playing against either the Lions or Patriots. Coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday the Ivory should be”in good shape” to perform at Sunday’s finale versus Miami, but has also said Ivory’s injury will not be completely cured until the off season. Expect the Bills to get undrafted rookie Keith Ford into their backfield mixture. — Mike Rodak
Xavien Howard appears to be likely to overlook his fourth consecutive game Sunday unless he convinces Adam Gase he is 100 percent. The Dolphins are likely to protect their wounded players like Howard, T.J. McDonald and Kiko Alonso, given that Miami is eliminated from playoff contention. — Cameron Wolfe
Cordarrelle Patterson, who has included a spark on crime on jet sweeps (four rebounds, 66 yards vs. Buffalo on Sunday), has a knee injury that had knocked him out of activity in the next quarter. The Patriots held a walk through Wednesday, also Patterson was present for its media-access portion. The club is treating the summer season finale against the Jets as a play off game (a victory locks up a first-round bye), therefore if Patterson is near the Patriots would like to have him given his growing value to the crime following Josh Gordon‘s suspension. But additionally there is merit on the line of thinking playing it safe for the playoffs could be the wisest course of action.
The Jets could possibly be down their No. 2 and No. 3 recipients with Quincy Enunwa (ankle) and also Jermaine Kearse (Achilles tendon) esophageal injuries. Enunwa is likely to miss his third successive game; Kearse appears doubtful. It’ll mean more reps for Andre Roberts and Deontay Burnett. Rookie tight end Chris Herndon could be featured in the passing game. — Rich Cimini
The Ravens remain in relative good health at this point in the entire year. Linebacker Terrell Suggs and wide receiver John Brown on average get veteran days away throughout the week, but both missed Wednesday’s practice with regular injuries. Neither is deemed serious. It wouldn’t be a surprise if most of Ravens players are fully practicing at the close of the week.
Vontaze Burfict lasted a seventh career concussion Sunday, also also second in a month, which might put his career in peril. Wide receiver Tyler Boyd, who’s from Pittsburgh, might overlook his return to his home with a knee injury that kept him out in Week 16. — Katherine Terrell
Cornerback Denzel Ward did not practice and it is in the NFL’s concussion protocol. Ward incurred his second concussion of the summer season in the win over Cincinnati on Sunday. He’d missed the previous two games with a concussion. It’d have been a surprise if he were on the field at Baltimore. — Pat McManamon
Running back James Conner (high ankle sprain) practiced in full on Wednesday for its first time since Nov. 30. The complete workload this early in the week can be really a fantastic indication for Sunday’s match up with the Bengals, but Conner offered up just two words about his progress”becoming better” Safety Sean Davis (quad) and LB Vince Williams (toe) didn’t practice Wednesday. — Jeremy Fowler
Defensive back Kareem Jackson was removed from Sunday’s game because of knee injury. Jackson was recorded as restricted in clinic on Wednesday. Running-back Lamar Miller missed a week’s game because of an ankle injury. He was limited in practice, but if really be on pace to play against the Jaguars. DeAndre Hopkins was questionable heading into the week’s game. Hopkins fought with the ankle injury when he arranged against the Eagles, also flipped into a different 100-yard performance. He was limited in practice with a ankle injury.
Tight-end Eric Ebron is still in the transplant after having a concussion in the first half of last Sunday’s game against the Giants. There is a belief that Ebron,” with a team-high 1-2 touchdowns, was going to be in a position to apply on a limited basis Wednesday, that will have been a step in the perfect direction for him draining protocol. However, a knee injury brought him never to practice. Receiver T.Y. Hilton‘s ongoing ankle injury continues to keep him out of practice. Nevertheless, the 1,200-yard receiver said Wednesday he’ll be playing in Sunday’s game in Tennessee at which the winner advances to the match. Hilton called it a”Game 7″ — Mike Wells
Running-back Leonard Fournette didn’t practice Wednesday as a result of an ankle/foot injury, also if he is not able to play against Houston he will have overlooked seven full games and chunks of 2 others due to harms (and yet still another due to a suspension). That would virtually make his second season a tragedy (he would finish with 439 yards, and 3.3 yards per carry). Carlos Hyde, that which the team acquired at a Mid Season trade, also T.J. Yeldon, that was a healthy scratch a week, would find the bulk of the job against Houston on Sunday.
Quarter back Marcus Mariota missed practice Wednesday but is optimistic about acting Sunday. Mariota said his right side felt numb when he got the stinger. In addition, he admitted to having a prior nerve-related injury in faculty. The Titans recorded Mariota on the injury report using a throat and foot injury. The injury isn’t regarded as regarding the knee injury which plagued Mariota earlier in the summer season. By this moment, it’s a wait-and-see strategy. Mariota will last to experience treatment. Your choice will likely end up being a game-time decision, much like the Week 3 game against the Jaguars in which Blaine Gabbert got the start.
At a season when the Broncos’ crime has already been gutted by harms and also the Oct. 30 trade of wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, the Broncos will shut out the season without their leading rusher, rookie running Phillip Lindsay. Lindsay suffered a perfect wrist injury in Monday night’s loss to the Raiders, also won’t play at the season finale against the Chargers. He will be the eighth player, for example Thomas, who’s started multiple matches on crime for the Broncos this season that will not be in uniform against the Chargers Sunday; the other six will be on injured reserve. It means fellow newcomer Royce Freeman figures to capture most of the early-down work while Devontae Booker will find some of the team more open formations, including plenty of snaps in the Broncos’ three-wide recipient collection. The Broncos have played a smattering of snaps in recent weeks with Freeman and Lindsay at precisely exactly the identical creation, therefore that it remains to be seen if they’ll take to that with Freeman and Booker. The Broncos, have been one of the team leaders in rushing earlier this year, have dropped to 11th.
Guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif will not play Sunday against the Raiders, but may rejoin the Chiefs in time for the match. He practiced Wednesday for its first time since October. Duvernay-Tardif was placed on injured reserve after breaking his leg and tearing ankle ligaments at a Week 5 game against the Jaguars. The Chiefs have three weeks at which they can trigger Duvernay-Tardif for game duty. “It’s only a matter of getting into and becoming trapped with the speed of the game… Obtaining back himself in as far football shape since you can enter into this period of year, and then examining it against ace athletes and also perhaps not the coaches,” coach Andy Reid said. “He is going against enormous bodies and guys that are quick. How does this feel that there?”
After missing the past two matches because of bruised nerve in his throat and also a shoulder difficulty, RB Austin Ekeler proved to be a complete participant in practice on Wednesday, an indicator he might possibly be available for your Bolts’ final game of the season on the trail against the united states. “He sounded great today in clinic,” Chargers coach Anthony Lynn stated. “He just needs to receive his timing back, grabbing the ball and running things such as this.” — Eric D. Williams
Cornerback Gareon Conley (concussion) and defensive tackle Maurice Hurst (foot ) were limited in clinic on Wednesday, two weeks following the defensive starters missed Monday night’s victory over the Broncos in a mental home finale. The 2 are mini-revelations for a defense that’s shown signs of improvement late in the summer season. Since Oakland has won three of its last six matches following a 1-8 start. Conley and Hurst are apparently foundation pieces for Jon Gruden’s rebuild.
Pro Bowl right guard Zack Martin (knee) won’t play Sunday against the Giants, owner and general manager Jerry Jones told 105.3 The Enthusiast in Dallas. Meanwhile, the defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford (throat ) will be likely to sit out the game too well after leaving last week’s game onto a stretcher. Martin is really just a certainty to play at the wild-card round, but the hope is that the others for both players can boost their amount of playwith. Cornerback Anthony Brown did not practice due to a back injury, but he looked to be moving well in his rehabilitation job.
(quad) is stilln’t practicing, even though it’s believed he has a chance to go back for the finale Sunday against the Cowboys. He functioned across both sides Wednesday with a coach. Beckham has missed the previous 3 games plus it would seem curious if the Giants attracted back him if he wasn’t 100 percent. — Jordan Raanan
Wide receiver Mike Wallace (broken leg), out since Week 2, was activated from injured reserve and can be practicing this week. It’d have been a big ask to throw him right into game action Sunday at the finale against the Redskins. However, it can’t hurt to get him ready for that postseason if the Eagles get it.
Tight end Jordan Reed (foot/toe) didn’t practice Wednesday and it’s difficult to imagine him acting at the finale. Reed had said earlier that he wanted to reach the postseason healthy, therefore he could focus on training as opposed to rehabbing to its very first time in three phases. Defensive end Matt Ioannidis (hamstring) functioned with coaches on a negative field throughout training. He played Saturday vs. Tennessee and was dealing with this issue for a few weeks. — John Keim
Bears head coach Matt Nagy reiterated that the team won’t rest starters in Week 17, but the Bears are working caution with Pro Bowl safety Eddie Jackson (ankle) and outside linebacker Aaron Lynch (elbow), either of whom are predicted to break much of the week. “We do think they’re becoming better, which is good,” Nagy said. “But we’ll just kind of track that this week and see in which they’re in. Nevertheless they are becoming better” The Bears are also keeping a close eye on wide receiver Allen Robinson, that suffered a rib injury in last week’s victory over San Francisco. — Jeff Dickerson
Kenny Golladay (torso ), Damon Harrison (foot ) and Quandre Diggs (ago ) were among the notable no-practice participants to the Lions on Sunday. With the Lions entering the season’s last week, it will be well worth tracking if Detroit chooses to play some one of them at the finale; Thursday practice’s, as usual, might give an indicator of that. In case Golladay were not able to play, Detroit’s crime would be exceedingly rough, without a overhaul catchers of importance to the roster. The quarterback casting to Golladay, Matthew Stafford, practiced in full with his back injury, therefore he seems on pace to begin every Detroit game for its eighth consecutive season. — Michael Rothstein
Four of the Packers’ seven WRs are on the injury report, for example Davante Adams (knee). Adams chose a shot on his right knee in the first quarter of Sunday’s win at the proceeded and went on to catch 11 passes. With 111 captures this season, he’s two lacking putting that the Packers’ only season record. Left tackle David Bakhtiari (hip) was included with the report that week later he was injured but finished the game against the Jets. — Rob Demovsky
The Vikings were missing a few prominent starters from the very first day of clinic through the most critical week of the growing season. Six players were non participants, for example C.J. Ham (elbow), Marcus Sherels (foot) and Xavier Rhodes (groin), all three of whom sustained injuries in Detroit. After Minnesota’s Week 16 triumph, coach Mike Zimmer addressed Rhodes’ injury saying,”I’m convinced he is going to be okay. That is virtually Xavier. I’m convinced he will be okay.” Eric Kendricks (hamstring), that did not play against the Lions, Linval Joseph (knee) and also Mike Remmers (low back) were sidelined on Wednesday.
The two WR Julio Jones and RB Tevin Coleman were held from Wednesday’s practice, as coach Dan Quinn stated would happen resulting in the week. Jones is dealing with rib and hip injuries, while Coleman strained his butt. Neither player was eliminated for Sunday’s season finale in Tampa Bay, but Quinn said he will do what’s in the best interest of these players. Jones on average plays during pain, even while if Coleman overlooks the game, it would give more opportunities to Brian Hill. — Vaughn McClure
Taylor Heinicke‘s first NFL start ended with a left knee injury which put him on injured reserve. Owing to that, also Cam Newton (shoulder) being shut down to the growing season, the Panthers are down to their next championships, Kyle Allen, that is likely to get his first NFL start in the finale in New Orleans. Allen fared okay in his brief appearance last game, completing all four of his pass attempts for 38 yards. However he may not have Pro Bowl right guard Trai Turner (ft ) protecting him.
The Saints have not yet revealed whether they’ll break starters in Week 17, but the line may certainly use a rest. Offensive tackles Terron Armstead (pectoral) and Jermon Bushrod (hamstring) in addition to OG Larry Warford (knee) didn’t participate in team drills during an abbreviated Wednesday evening practice. Tackle Ryan Ramczyk (shoulder) was limited. Of the category, Armstead will be out. It’d be great to break others, too, though the Saints do need to have enough active linemen to make it through the game. — Mike Triplett
Wide receiver DeSean Jackson missed clinic with an Achilles tendon injury he suffered last week against the Cowboys. Defensive end Carl Nassib, arguably the most Bucs’ second best pass rusher into Jason Pierre-Paul, also missed practice with a shoulder injury. Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy (shoulder), Pierre-Paul (shoulder/knee) and right tackle Demar Dotson (knee) were all limited.
Defensive end Markus Golden continues to miss time due to an ankle injury, setting an appearance at the season finale Sunday against the Seahawks in peril. Not needing Golden would be a blow against the Cardinals’ effort to contain Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson, and it will not help that fellow DE Benson Mayowa missed practice Wednesday with a back and neck injury; coach Steve Wilks labeled Mayowa as day-to-day. — Josh Weinfuss
Todd Gurley II is day-to-day due to his knee, which kept him sidelined last Sunday against the Cardinals. Safety Lamarcus Joyner is day-to-day due to an ankle injury suffered against the Cardinals, Sean McVay stated. — Lindsey Thiry
Coach Kyle Shanahan has recently ruled out WR Dante Pettis (MCL sprain) and RB Matt Breida (ankle) for this week, but the Niners could have a trio of different contributors to track through the entire week. Tight end Garrett Celek (concussion), CB K’Waun Williams (knee) and WR Marquise Goodwin (bruised calf) will need to get strides since the week proceeds to be available for that finale, and also the Niners could use them given that the injuries they have continued at other spots on the depth chart. — Nick Wagoner
It’s a good thing that the Seahawks have locked up a wild-card berth, because three fifths of their offensive line is banged up heading into their regular-season finale against Arizona. Right tackle Germain Ifedi is practicing Wednesday, therefore he generally appears to have the best chance of both to play Sunday after missing a week with a groin injury. But shields J.R. Sweezy (foot sprain) and D.J. Fluker (hamstring) are day-to-day, accordingto coach Pete Carroll. Do not expect to do much in practice this week, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if Sweezy does not play in Week 17 with Carroll saying Wednesday he’s still”pretty sore.” — Brady Henderson
