Date Player
12/9/2016 Kenny Vaccaro, NO, S
Vaccaro will serve his four-game suspension starting Sunday at Tampa Bay, meaning he will miss the rest of the regular season.

Analysis: The possibility of a suspension was originally announced nearly a month ago, but the NFL didn't confirm that he violated the league's policy on performance enhancing drugs until Friday. The Saints decided it was better he accept the ban now rather than appeal and have it possibly drag into next year. His absence is a huge blow to the Saints defense. He was in on 67 solo or assisted tackles and had two interceptions.
12/9/2016 Jordan Payton, Cle, WR
The NFL has suspended Payton four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Analysis: Payton, a fifth-round pick of the Browns in this year's draft, appeared in only four of the team's 12 games and recorded one catch totaling three yards.
12/9/2016 Sammy Watkins, Buf, WR
Watkins is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers due to a foot injury.

Analysis: We'd expect Watkins will play after he was able to go in the last two games.
12/9/2016 Mark Ingram, NO, RB
Ingram is questionable for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, though his return to practice on Friday means he's trending in the right direction.

Analysis: Ingram has been dealing with toe and knee injuries.
12/9/2016 Chris Ivory, Jax, RB
After missing last week's contest, Ivory is considered questionable this weekend due to a hamstring injury.

Analysis: T.J. Yeldon is expected to carry the load for the Jaguars in the backfield even if Ivory is well enough to play.
12/9/2016 Theo Riddick, Det, RB
Riddick came up on the injury report Friday as questionable for this weekend's game due to a wrist injury.

Analysis: He's been limited in practice this week, but is expected to play against the Bears.
12/9/2016 Marquess Wilson, Chi, WR
Wilson is questionable for this weekend's game with a groin injury.

Analysis: Wilson had a breakout game a couple of weeks ago, but he just can't seem to stay healthy long enough to make an impact.
12/9/2016 Eddie Royal, Chi, WR
Royal is doubtful for Sunday's game because of a toe injury.

Analysis: Royal missed last weekend's game against the 49ers. He's been dealing with this issue for months now.
12/9/2016 DeVante Parker, Mia, WR
Parker is questionable again this week because of his ailing back.

Analysis: Parker has been dealing with this problem for quite some time now. He has been able to play through it.
12/9/2016 Tyrann Mathieu, Ari, S
Mathieu out for Sunday's game at the Miami Dolphins due to a lingering shoulder injury.

Analysis: Mathieu will miss his second straight game, six weeks after suffering a shoulder subluxation against the Carolina Panthers on Oct. 30. He missed two games in November and returned for one game before aggravating the shoulder. Cardinals coach Bruce Arians did not know when the "Honey Badger" would return. Mathieu did not practice this week.
12/9/2016 Jelani Jenkins, Mia, LB
The Miami Dolphins might be without two starting linebackers Sunday against Arizona. Kiko Alonso has an injured thumb and hamstring. Jenkins has an ailing knee and hand.

Analysis: Both were both listed as doubtful Friday.
12/9/2016 Brandon Pettigrew, Det, TE
The Detroit Lions waived Pettigrew on Friday after moving him earlier this week from the physically unable to perform list to the non-football injury list.

Analysis: Pettigrew, 31, had not played since tearing his ACL in December 2015. He spent the offseason rehabbing and was placed on the PUP list prior to training camp. Pettigrew, the 20th overall pick out of Oklahoma State in 2009, played 93 career games (85 starts) with the Lions, making 301 receptions for 2,965 yards and 17 touchdowns. Pettigrew averaged 64 receptions from 2010-13, but the past two seasons he caught just 17 passes for 137 yards and one touchdown in 22 games.
12/9/2016 Malcolm Mitchell, NE, WR
After accumulating just seven catches in the first nine games, Mitchell has 13 catches and three touchdowns in the past two weeks.

Analysis: His progression is now even more important with tight end Rob Gronkowski gone for the rest of the season with a back injury, Danny Amendola gone for the regular season with a high ankle sprain, and Martellus Bennett banged up, causing him to be used mostly as a blocker last week.
12/9/2016 Kyle Williams, Buf, DT
Williams is questionable for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers because of a back injury.

Analysis: Bills coach Rex Ryan says Williams' back locked up on him Thursday night, placing his availability for the game in doubt.
12/9/2016 Jordan Reed, Was, TE
Reed practiced on Friday and appears to be on target to be a game-time decision Sunday.

Analysis: Reed did not play last weekend because of a shoulder injury.
12/8/2016 Derrick Johnson, KC, LB
Chiefs coach Andy Reid confirmed following Thursday's win over Oakland that Johnson ruptured his left Achilles tendon during the second quarter.

Analysis: It's a major blow for the playoff-hopeful Chiefs, as Johnson is one of the club's most important defenders and leads the team with 90 tackles. It's the second time in three years that the 34-year-old has sustained this type of injury, having torn his right Achilles during the 2014 season opener.
12/8/2016 Kelechi Osemele, Oak, G
Osemele will be inactive for Thursday night's game at Kansas City after coming down with an illness.

Analysis: The Raiders will have to make do without one of their best offensive linemen for this critical AFC West showdown. Osemele has been a key part of a front that's allowed a league-low 12 sacks.
12/8/2016 Jeremy Maclin, KC, WR
Maclin will be active for the first time since Week 9 when the Chiefs host the Raiders on Thursday night.

Analysis: Kansas City's expected No. 1 receiver has missed the last four games with a groin injury. With Travis Kelce and rookie Tyreek Hill having stepped up in his absence, Maclin's role may be a bit limited for this key AFC West matchup.
12/8/2016 Nick Mangold, NYJ, C
The Jets are placing Mangold on injured reserve with an ankle injury, ending the star center's season and possibly his tenure with the only NFL team he has played for.

Analysis: Mangold aggravated an ankle injury during the Jets' 41-10 loss to Indianapolis on Monday night. He was flying to North Carolina on Thursday to visit orthopedic specialist Dr. Robert Anderson to get another look at his sprained right ankle. The team decided to shut down Mangold, who will be replaced by Wesley Johnson at center.
12/8/2016 Von Miller, Den, LB
Miller's lead-leading sack total jumped to 13 1/2.

Analysis: The NFL belatedly credited Miller with a strip-sack for his play late in the fourth quarter that sealed Denver's 20-10 win at Jacksonville on Sunday. Miller shoved tackle Kelvin Beachum into quarterback Blake Bortles, forcing the ball free. Linebacker Shane Ray recovered the fumble at the Jaguars 29 with 1:27 remaining.
