Impact: Even though he had an illness this week, he was still able to practice. The signs point to the beginning of Sunday.

Sam LaPorta, TE, DETDoubtful
Impact: He practiced on Friday and says he’s looking forward to playing on Sunday. It feels like a game time call.

Jahmir Gibbs, RB, DETOutside
Impact: David Montgomery will likely handle roughly 20 touches in Detroit’s backfield.

JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, NEOutside
IMPACT: Tyquan Thornton has been activated from IR to join the pool in 3-WR sets.


Sunday night game

Dawson Knox, TE, BUFDoubtful
Impact: He has trained in a limited way all week and is heading towards the start, which is good news as…

Dalton Kincaid, TE, BUFDoubtful
IMPACT: … Kincaid has not yet cleared the league’s concussion protocol, so his Sunday is currently on hold.

Daniel Jones, QB, NYGOutside
Impact: Tyrod Taylor is at center for the Giants this week, so temper your expectations.

Saquon Barkley, RB, NYGDoubtful
Impact: He has been training this week and looks like he is finally ready to return to action.

Darren Waller, TE, New YorkDoubtful
Impact: Assuming he plays, he could end up being Taylor’s favorite target.


9:30 AM ET

Keaton Mitchell, RB, BALactive
IMPACT: The rookie practiced all week in anticipation of joining Judge Hill in backup to Gus Edwards.

Trelon Burks, WR, TENOutside
Impact: Nick Westbrook-Ikhine will get a raise, but DeAndre Hopkins is still the top WR option on the Titans.


Games are at 1 p.m. ET

Miles Sanders, RB, CAROutside
Impact: Chuba Hubbard should get most of the running back touches for the Panthers, and Laviska Shenault Jr. will probably watch. Some hardware operations.

Roshawn Johnson, RB, CHIOutside
IMPACT: With Khalil Herbert (ankle) now on IR, D’Onta Foreman gets a chance to handle backfield duties.

Travis Homer, RB, CHIOutside
Impact: A missed opportunity to get some touches for a homer. Darrenton Evans will support Foreman.

T Higgins, WR, CINactive
Impact: The Bengals had a bye in Week 7, so with Higgins active, he’s likely close to 100%.

Deshaun Watson, QB, CLEOutside
Impact: PJ Walker will start in Week 6, but we may see Dorian Thompson-Robinson at some point this week, or in the coming weeks if Walker struggles.

David Njoku, TE, CLEactive
Impact: He played before last week’s bye, so it’s no surprise he’s ready to leave today.

Robert Woods, WR, HOUactive
IMPACT: He’s had some practice this week, so Woods may start alongside Nico Collins.

TANK DELL, WR, HOUInactive
IMPACT: Noah Brown has been activated from IR and may take over Dell’s quick stake.

Z Jones, WR, JacksOutside
Impact: The Jaguars will likely rely heavily on the duo of Christian Kirk and Calvin Ridley.

Jeff Wilson Jr., RB, MIAOutside
Impact: There was talk of activating it from IR this week, but it doesn’t appear to be ready. Salvon Ahmed should back Raheem Mostert once again.

Chase Claypool, WR, MIAInactive
Impact: Apparently, Miami isn’t ready to send its recently acquired receiver into game action.

Joan Johnson, TE, NOOutside
Impact: Once again, the tandem of Jimmy Graham and Foster Morrow will get its share of targets.

Elijah Mitchell, RB, SFactive
Impact: Jordan Mason may still be in line for some backup touches.
