QDontari Poe
DL KC (5)
2 days ago

Poe (back) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.
