QDontari Poe DL KC (5) 2 days ago
Poe (back) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Poe was unable to practice throughout the week, so he may be limited Sunday if he ends up getting the all-clear to play. Jarvis Jenkins figures to get the start at nose tackle if Poe is ultimately sidelined.
QRobert Quinn DL LA (8) 2 days ago
Quinn (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's tilt with Patriots.
Quinn will need to pass concussion protocol testing before he can return to the field, which doesn't bode well for his chances Sunday at New England. If he is ultimately ruled out, look for Eugene Sims to pick up the spot start.
D.J. Reader DL HOU (9) 2 days ago
Reader (shoulder) did not appear on the Texans' injury report in advance of Sunday's game against the Packers.
Reader injured his shoulder last week against the Chargers. While he was limited in practice this week, his restrictions were likely a precautionary measure to ensure his availability for Week 13.
Chris Conley WR KC (5) 2 days ago
Conley (Achilles) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Conley was limited at practice Thursday, but returned to a full session Friday. He should be fine for Sunday's game, but Conley could see his workload impacted by the potential return to action of starting (when healthy) wideout Jeremy Maclin.
QJustin Houston LB KC (5) 2 days ago
Houston (shoulder) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Houston's shoulder injury is a bit of a mystery, having practiced in full on Wednesday before missing Thursday's session, and returning Friday on a limited basis. He's coming off a three-sack performance, so hopefully for the Chiefs he'll be able to suit up on Sunday. If he's unable to play, however, Dee Ford (hamstring) and Frank Zombo figure to see expanded roles at outside linebacker.
QBrian Cushing LB HOU (9) 2 days ago
Cushing (back) is questionable to play Sunday against Green Bay.
This is a new injury for Cushing. He was able to take part in every practice this week, though, so he should be good to go come Sunday. If he's ruled out, both Brian Peters and Max Bullough project to see additional playing time.
OUTJeremy Maclin WR KC (5) 2 days ago
Maclin (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Maclin was able to practice in a limited fashion all week, which suggests that he should be a go this weekend, though in such a scenario it remains to be seen if he'd be up for a full workload in his first full game since Week 8.
OUTJadeveon Clowney DL HOU (9) 2 days ago
Clowney (elbow/wrist) is questionable to play Sunday against Green Bay.
Though Clowney was limited in every practice this week, nothing suggests he's in actual danger of missing Sunday's game. Look for his status to be confirmed prior to kickoff.
OUTTyler Ervin RB HOU (9) 2 days ago
Ervin (chest) is ruled out of Sunday's matchup with the Packers.
Ervin injured his chest in Week 11 and wasn't ready to play last Sunday against the Chargers. Now, he's set to miss his second consecutive game. In his absence, Akeem Hunt will take over kick return duties while Braxton Miller becomes the punt return specialist.
DTavon Austin WR LA (8) 2 days ago
Austin (chest) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Austin didn't practice at all this week, so it's not expected that he'll be able to suit up Sunday. That situation would leave rookie quarterback Jared Goff without one of his top weapons versus the Patriots, and would figure to open more opportunities for Brian Quick and Pharoh Cooper to get involved offensively.
