With plenty more key news to cover, let's jump right into the latest as of early Sunday morning:?

Week 17 Injuries
Week 17 Preview
Injury Report Update
Quarterback injuries
BAL Baltimore ? #8
Age: 22 ? Experience: 2 yrs.
Injury
Rest
Jackson will sit out Sunday's game against the Steelers. Robert Griffin has been preparing as the starter throughout the week, while rookie Trace McSorley could also see time during the contest according to coach John Harbaugh's remarks earlier in the week. Either quarterback will be working with a backup supporting cast for the most part, as Harbaugh is expected to rest most of his starters or play them for limited time.
HOU Houston ? #4
Age: 24 ? Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Back/rest
Watson is questionable to face the Titans in Week 17 after a trio of limited practices this past week. Early Sunday morning reports indicate the Texans plan to rest key starters, with Watson naturally a candidate for such. If he were to indeed sit, Houston, which can only improve to the No. 3 seed if the Chiefs lose to the Chargers at Arrowhead Stadium earlier in the afternoon, would roll with AJ McCarron at quarterback throwing to what could be a backup group of receivers.
MIN Minnesota ? #8
Age: 31 ? Experience: 8 yrs.
Injury
Rest
Cousins will not play in Sunday's game versus the Bears as per early Sunday morning reports, although the team has yet to officially rule him out. Sean Mannion would presumably draw the start for Minnesota if Cousins indeed sits. The absence of Cousins would normally mean a downgrade for the rest of the team's skill position players, but there is a high likelihood that the likes of Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and Kyle Rudolph will also potentially sit or see limited snaps as per early Sunday morning reports.
ARI Arizona ? #1
Age: 22 ? Experience: Rookie
Injury
Hamstring
Murray is questionable for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Rams after practicing in limited fashion all week. Late-week reports indicate Murray appears to be trending toward sitting out the contest, with Brett Hundley taking most of the first-team reps all week at practice and Arizona also calling up undrafted rookie signal-caller Drew Anderson from the practice squad Friday. Hundley logged emergency duty in Week 16 after Murray went out against the Seahawks and completed four of nine attempts for 49 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions while adding 35 yards on six rushes.
TB Tampa Bay ? #3
Age: 25 ? Experience: 5 yrs.
Injury
Thumb/knee
Winston is questionable for Sunday's NFC South season-ending matchup against the Falcons, but he wrapped up the week with two full practices. There's been no indication Winston is in any danger of missing the contest, although he'll once again be operating with an abbreviated receiving corps that will be missing both Mike Evans and Chris Godwin due to hamstring injuries.
JAC Jacksonville ? #15
Age: 23 ? Experience: Rookie
Injury
Shoulder
Minshew is questionable for Sunday's season finale versus the Colts after practicing in limited fashion throughout the week. Minshew was reportedly bothered by the injury heading into the Week 16 loss to the Falcons, although he did not carry an injury designation for that contest. Minshew appears set to start against Indianapolis, with Nick Foles and Joshua Dobbs waiting in the wings should the rookie suffer a setback.
WAS Washington ? #7
Age: 22 ? Experience: Rookie
Injury
Ankle
Haskins is out for Sunday's NFC East matchup against the Cowboys after sitting out practice all week. Haskins wraps up his rookie campaign with 1,365 yards and a 7:7 TD:INT, and he appears set to have to learn a new offense next season under a new coaching staff this offseason. Veteran Case Keenum will be under center for Washington in the finale versus Dallas.
Running back injuries
MIN Minnesota ? #33
Age: 24 ? Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Chest
Cook will not play in Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Bears. Cook did manage to practice in limited fashion throughout the week, but he'll be held out with the Vikings having a Wild Card game next weekend. Alexander Mattison (ankle) is out as well, so Mike Boone and Ameer Abdullah are set to fill in for both Cook and Mattison, with Boone likely to see a larger role.
JAC Jacksonville ? #27
Age: 24 ? Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Illness/neck
Fournette is officially doubtful for Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Colts after missing the last two practices of the week, and he declared on his social media accounts Saturday that he would be sitting out the contest. Ryquell Armstead and Devine Ozigbo would handle running back duties for Jacksonville if Fournette does indeed sit.
SEA Seattle ? #32
Age: 25 ? Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Hip
The Seahawks placed Carson on injured reserve this week, where he was joined by C.J. Prosise (arm). That pair of injuries led to the signing of Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin this past week, with both players expected to play Sunday night against the 49ers as per head coach Pete Carroll. Rookie Travis Homer is also available to take snaps out of the backfield for Seattle.
NE New England ? #26
Age: 24 ? Experience: 2 yrs.
Injury
Ilness
Michel was a Saturday addition to the injury report and is now listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Rex Burkhead and James White would lead New England's backfield should Michel miss, with the two likely to split his workload fairly evenly, though Sunday morning reports indicate Michel is expected to play.
PIT Pittsburgh ? #30
Age: 24 ? Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Quadriceps
Conner will not play in Sunday's AFC North showdown versus the Ravens after missing practice all week. Benny Snell Jr., Jaylen Samuels and Kerrith Whyte will handle backfield duties for Pittsburgh against Baltimore.
TEN Tennessee ? #22
Age: 25 ? Experience: 4 yrs.
Injury
Hamstring
Henry does not have an injury designation for Sunday's pivotal AFC South matchup against the Texans and was a full practice participant throughout the week for the first time since Week 12. He's set to assume his usual workload and will send Dion Lewis back into his usual complementary role.
BAL Baltimore ? #21
Age: 30 ? Experience: 9 yrs.
Injury
Calf
Ingram will not suit up for Sunday's AFC North battle against the Steelers after suffering his injury in the Week 16 win over the Browns. Gus Edwards and rookie Justise Hill are expected to handle the majority of the backfield workload for Baltimore.
PHI Philadelphia ? #24
Age: 25 ? Experience: 4 yrs.
Injury
Shoulder
Howard is off the injury report after working back to a full practice Friday, leaving him poised to see his first game action in since Week 9. Coach Doug Pederson did declare Miles Sanders as his primary running back earlier in the week following Sanders' impressive multi-week stint in Howard's absence, so it remains to be seen how much work the latter will see.
OAK Oakland ? #28
Age: 21 ? Experience: Rookie
Injury
Shoulder
Jacobs has been ruled out for Sunday's 2019 finale against the Broncos, ending his rookie campaign at 13 games and 1,150 rushing yards. Jacobs will once again be spelled by Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington in the season finale.
GB Green Bay ? #30
Age: 24 ? Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Shoulder
Williams is doubtful for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Lions after missing practice all week. Aaron Jones should be a beneficiary of Williams' absence, while Dexter Williams and Tyler Ervin could see expanded workloads if/when Green Bay has the game against Detroit in hand.
IND Indianapolis ? #20
Age: 25 ? Experience: 2 yrs.
Injury
Knee
Wilkins will not suit up for Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars despite finishing the week with two limited practices. Nyheim Hines and Jonathan Williams will handle backup duties behind starter Marlon Mack.
Wide receiver injuries
CLE Cleveland ? #13
Age: 27 ? Experience: 6 yrs.
Injury
Groin
Beckham is questionable for Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Bengals after downgrading to a non-practice participant Friday following a pair of limited sessions to open the week. If he were to sit, Jarvis Landry, and Damian Ratley could be the primary beneficiaries.
HOU Houston ? #10
Age: 27 ? Experience: 7 yrs.
Injury
Illness
Hopkins is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Titans after sandwiching a pair of missed practices around a limited Thursday practice. With word emerging early Sunday morning that Houston is planning to rest/limit key players, it appears Hopkins is set to play less than a full game if he does suit up. With Will Fuller V (groin) already ruled out and Kenny Stills (knee) questionable, Keke Coutee and DeAndre Carter could be in for expanded roles against Tennessee, although they could be catching passes from backup AJ McCarron for most of the contest.
MIN Minnesota ? #19
Age: 29 ? Experience: 6 yrs.
Injury
Rest
Thielen and Stefon Diggs could among the starters the Vikings reportedly plan to limit or hold out altogether for Sundays' game against the Bears, as per an early Sunday morning report. However, the team may not make an official announcement of such prior to game time, and it's also possible Thielen and other players are declared active but play minimally or not at all.
TB Tampa Bay ? #12
Age: 23 ? Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Hamstring
Godwin will not play in Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Falcons after sitting out practice all week. Breshad Perriman is expected to serve as Tampa's top wideout again in Week 17.
PHI Philadelphia ? #13
Age: 26 ? Experience: 5 yrs.
Injury
Knee
Agholor will not play in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Giants, one the Eagles must win to get into the postseason.

NYJ N.Y. Jets ? #11
Age: 26 ? Experience: 4 yrs.
Injury
Calf

BAL Baltimore ? #15
Age: 22 ? Experience: Rookie
Injury
Illness
Brown is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers after failing to practice Friday. As per early Sunday morning reports, Brown is not expected to play. His expected absence could open up more opportunities for the likes of Willie Snead, Seth Roberts, Miles Boykin and Chris Moore, depending on how long coach John Harbaugh plays his starters.
NE New England ? #11
Age: 33 ? Experience: 11 year
Injury
Knee
Edelman is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Dolphins after a week of limited practices. As he's done numerous times this season, Edelman is expected to play through his injury.
WAS Washington ? #17
Age: 24 ? Experience: Rookie
Injury
Concussion
McLaurin will miss the Week 17 final against the Cowboys after failing to practice all week. The likes of Kelvin Harmon and Steven Sims Jr. should be the primary beneficiaries of McLaurin's absence, with Sims likely to play McLaurin's downfield role due to his elite speed.
CAR Carolina ? #12
Age: 22 ? Experience: 2 yrs.
Injury
Concussion
Moore will not play in Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Saints after missing practice throughout the week. Jarius Wright, Chris Hogan and Brandon Zylstra are expected to pick up the slack in Moore's absence, with Curtis Samuel and potentially tight end Greg Olsen beneficiaries in the form of extra targets as well.
JAC Jacksonville ? #12
Age: 26 ? Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Neck/shoulder
Westbrook is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Colts after downgrading to a missed practice Friday following two full sessions to start the week. If Westbrook were to miss, Chris Conley and Keelan Cole would bump up to the No. 2 and No. 3 spots on the depth chart, respectively.
CIN Cincinnati ? #18
Age: 31 ? Experience: 9 yrs.
Injury
Ankle
Green will remain out for Sunday's finale versus the Browns, meaning he'll have missed the entire 2019 season. Tyler Boyd and John Ross will head up the receiver corps once again, while Green will head into the offseason hoping to return fully healthy in 2020.
CHI Chicago ? #18
Age: 28 ? Experience: 6 yrs.
Injury
Concussion
Gabriel will not play in Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Vikings after missing practice all week. Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller will continue serving as Mitchell Trubisky's top two wideout options.
TEN Tennessee ? #10
Age: 26 ? Experience: 5 yrs.

Injury
Concussion

BAL Baltimore ? #89
Age: 24 ? Experience: 2 yrs.
Injury
Ankle
Andrews is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, although he managed to work back to a limited practice Friday after missing the first two sessions of the week.

PHI Philadelphia ? #86
Age: 29 ? Experience: 7 yrs.
Injury
Ribs
Ertz is out for Sunday's NFC East showdown versus the Giants. Dallas Goedert, who has come on in recent weeks and put together a 9-91-1 line in the big Week 16 win against the Cowboys, will operate as the top tight end against New York.

Age: 30 ? Experience: 9 yrs.
Injury
Rest
Rudolph could one of the starters the Vikings reportedly plan to limit or hold out altogether for Sundays' game against the Bears, as per an early Sunday morning report.

Age: 24 ? Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Illness
Seals-Jones is questionable for Sunday's AFC North matchup versus the Bengals, but he did manage to work back to a limited Friday practice after missing the first two sessions of the week.

The Giants placed Ellison on injured reserve this week.

JAC Jacksonville ? #86
Age: 27 ? Experience: 4 yrs.
Injury
Shoulder
O'Leary is questionable for Sunday's finale against the Colts after three limited practices this week. Seth DeValve remains the top tight end option for Jacksonville irrespective of O'Leary's status.
