OUTBryan Bulaga GB (8) 14 hours ago
The Packers could potentially opt out of Bulaga's (knee) contract this spring, Ryan Wood of PackersNews.com reports.
Green Bay would be left with $3.2 million in dead money if they were to part ways with Bulaga, but ACL injuries to both knees put a major question mark on his future. The veteran right tackle has been in the league for eight seasons despite being only 28 years old, and still has two years and $13.5 million remaining on his contract. Bulaga has yet to even officially be placed on injured reserve and his recovery process will be paramount to what the team ultimately decides.
OUTDavid Andrews NE (9) 15 hours ago
Andrews was officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders with an undisclosed illness.
Andrews was added to the injury report Thursday and did not participate at Friday's practice. Ted Karras will likely fill in at center with Andrews not playing Sunday.
OUTMatt Slater WR NE (9) 15 hours ago
Slater (hamstring) was officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
Slater sustained the injury in last Sunday's win over the Broncos and was unable to practice this week. The 32-year-old has battled hamstring issues for much of the season and the Patriots will miss his presence on special teams.
OUTMarcus Cannon NE (9) 15 hours ago
Cannon (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
Cannon did not practice this week so this is hardly surprising. The 29-year-old will need to hope for a Week 12 return, and will likely need to string together a couple a practice sessions.
Jeremy Lane DB SEA (6) 15 hours ago
Lane is set to start at cornerback going forward, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
Weeks after returning to the Seahawks after a rescinded trade due to a failed physical, Lane will now be the starting left corner back in place of the injured Richard Sherman. Justin Coleman was another candidate for the role, but will instead remain the nickelback. The 27-year-old recorded two tackles in his return to action last week.
QGeoff Swaim TE DAL (6) 15 hours ago
Swaim (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Swaim was a limited participant in practice this week after sitting out last Sunday's loss to the Falcons. Blake Jarwin would fill in as the Cowboys' No. 3 tight end again if Swaim is unable to suit up.
Isaiah McKenzie WR DEN (5) 15 hours ago
McKenzie will be inactive for the Broncos' Week 11 matchup against the Bengals, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
It is unclear why the Broncos have opted to sideline McKenzie, but he has lost fumbles in two of the previous three weeks. Jordan Taylor will return punts in the rookie's absence.
Earl Thomas DB SEA (6) 15 hours ago
Thomas (hamstring) was a full participant at Friday's practice, Michael-Shawn Dugar of SeattlePI.com reports.
Thomas has been sidelined for the Seahawks' previous two contests while nursing a hamstring injury. The 28-year-old free safety appears on track for a return though, as he has seen his practice workload increased throughout the week. Assuming he avoids any setbacks, Thomas should resume his usual role anchoring the team's secondary in Week 11.
QEddie Lacy RB SEA (6) 16 hours ago
Lacy (groin) logged a full practice Friday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of SeattlePI.com reports.
Prior to the Seahawks' first practice of the week Thursday, head coach Pete Carroll intimated that Lacy would be able to return from a one-game absence Monday against the Falcons, and the running back's full session Friday seemingly validates that sentiment. Assuming he incurs no setbacks prior to the Week 11 matchup, Lacy might take back starting duties from Thomas Rawls, but the two could end up splitting the carries in a fairly even fashion unless one one of the backs performs dramatically better than the other early on in the contest.
QTyron Smith DAL (6) 16 hours ago
Smith (groin/back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Smith did not practice for the second consecutive week but still earned the questionable tag. It seems unlikely that the veteran left tackle is going to play, which would leave Byron Bell to take the start after disastrous results from himself and Chaz Green against the Falcons in Week 10.
