J.J. Nelson WR ARI (8) 3 hours ago
Nelson (chest) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
With John Brown (chest) ruled out and Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey (hand) also potentially absent, Nelson finds himself in a decent spot for the first time since September. of course, a matchup with Jacksonville still looks quite tricky, and Cardinals coach Bruce Arians hinted that he may use Brown's absence to give rookie third-round pick Chad Williams some playing time. On top of all that, starting QB Blaine Gabbert isn't exactly known for taking shots down the field.
Jacoby Brissett QB IND (11) 3 hours ago
After practicing fully all week, Brissett (concussion) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Titans.
Per the Indianapolis Star, Brissett still needs to pass the evaluation of an independent neurologist to be fully cleared from his concussion, but that visit is slated for Friday afternoon. Barring any unexpected setback on that front, Brissett is on track to remain the Colts' starting QB in Week 12.
QMuhammad Wilkerson DL NYJ (11) 3 hours ago
Wilkerson (toe) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers.
Wilkerson was listed as a limited participant in practice this week while dealing with a broken toe, but the fact that he was able to put in any work at all is a good sign for Sunday. Wilkerson will likely be a game-time decision this weekend.
Julius Thomas TE MIA (1) 3 hours ago
Head coach Adam Gase relayed that he expects to get Thomas more involved in the offense as the season continues, Roy Cummings of Florida Football Insiders reports. "Yeah, with Julius, I didn't get him going enough early in the season," Gase said this week. "But I feel like we've gotten [back] into a little bit more of a groove with him now, and I still think there are some other things we can do."
Through the first seven games of the season, Thomas accumulated 17 receptions (on 28 targets) for 168 yards and no touchdowns. After a 40-0 shellacking at Baltimore in Week 8, Gase reevaluated the offense and noticed a lack of reliance on Thomas. Since then, Thomas has been targeted four times in the red zone, finally reaching the end zone twice in the midst of 12 catches (on 17 targets) for 122 yards across three contests. Assuming his usage remains consistent, he'll aim to keep up the pace Sunday versus a Patriots defense that has conceded just 10 catches for 88 yards and no scores to tight ends over the last four outings.
QBrian Winters NYJ (11) 4 hours ago
Winters (abdomen) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers.
Winters was active two weeks ago in the Jets' game against Tampa Bay, and it seems unlikely, following a bye week that Winters would not play Sunday. The expectation is that Winters will be active, but look for an official announcement to come Sunday.
Cameron Brate TE TB (1) 4 hours ago
Brate (ankle) was a full practice participant Friday and doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game in Atlanta.
Brate was limited at practice the previous two days, but there was never any report to suggest he was in danger of missing a game. His waning involvement in the Tampa passing attack sans Jameis Winston (shoulder) is the real concern, with Brate looking to end a streak of three straight games with exactly one catch for 12 yards or less.
OUTJay Cutler QB MIA (1) 4 hours ago
Cutler (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
As a result, Matt Moore will draw his second start of the season, while the report relays that the Dolphins have elected to proceed with caution and shut Cutler down in the short-term, with a reevaluation on tap next week. David Fales is thus slated to back up Moore on Sunday.
Matt Moore QB MIA (1) 4 hours ago
Jay Cutler has not cleared the NFL's concussion protocol, so Moore is slated to start Sunday's game against the Patriots, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Overall, the Patriots are allowing a league-high average of 282.0 passing yards per game, but they've been tightening things up on defense of late, so this is not necessarily a great matchup for Moore. In relief of Cutler in Week 11's 30-20 loss to the Buccaneers, Moore completed 17 of 28 passes for 282 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions. He's an option for those scrambling for Week 12 QB help, or looking a low-priced option to roll with in daily formats.
Marqise Lee WR JAC (8) 4 hours ago
Lee (knee) does not have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game in Arizona.
Lee has often been listed as questionable this season but has yet to miss a game. He avoided the designation the past two weeks despite being limited at practice. Lee figures to spend much of Sunday's game doing battle with Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson.
Leonard Fournette RB JAC (8) 4 hours ago
Fournette (ankle) does not have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game in Arizona.
A limited participant at every practice this week, Fournette never seemed to be in any real danger of requiring an absence, after rumbling for 111 yards on 28 carries in Week 11 against a stingy Cleveland run defense. He draws a slightly better matchup Sunday, facing an Arizona defense that's limited opposing running backs to 3.6 yards per carry and 82.8 rushing yards per game.
