Date Player
9/30/2016 Joey Bosa, SD, DE
Bosa has been ruled out of his fourth straight game due to a hamstring injury.

Analysis: Bosa missed all of training camp during a nasty contract dispute and then hurt himself after he signed.
9/30/2016 Russell Wilson, Sea, QB
Wilson will start Sunday against the New York Jets despite a knee sprain.

Analysis: Coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Wilson made it through the week of practices with no setbacks. Wilson missed the first snap of his career due to injury last weekend after getting pulled down by San Francisco's Eli Harold, spraining the MCL in Wilson's left knee. It's the second injury Wilson has dealt with this season after spraining his right ankle in the opener against Miami.
9/30/2016 Jamaal Charles, KC, RB
The Chiefs listed Charles as questionable for Sunday night's game at Pittsburgh.

Analysis: Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Friday that how well Charles comes out of the final practice of the week would dictate whether he makes his season debut. The four-time Pro Bowl selection has not played since Week 5 last season, when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
9/30/2016 DeAndre Levy, Det, LB
The Lions say Levy and defensive end Ezekiel Ansah will not play Sunday against the Bears because of injuries.

Analysis: Levy has a quadriceps injury. He missed much of last season with a hip injury.
9/30/2016 Ezekiel Ansah, Det, DE
The Lions say Ansah and linebacker DeAndre Levy will not play Sunday against the Bears because of injuries.

Analysis: Ansah sprained his ankle two weeks ago in Detroit's loss to Tennessee and didn't return to the game.
9/30/2016 Dez Bryant, Dal, WR
Bryant is questionable for Dallas' game against San Francisco, and remorseful about going AWOL on the Cowboys early in the week over fear about his knee injury.

Analysis: The 2014 All-Pro receiver didn't practice all week after sustaining a hairline fracture in a bone in his right knee in last week's win over Chicago. He was officially listed as questionable Friday. Owner Jerry Jones said on his radio show Friday that an X-ray the night of the game revealed the hairline fracture, and Bryant missed a follow-up MRI on Monday and team meetings Tuesday because he didn't want to get some bad news.
9/30/2016 Julius Thomas, Jax, TE
Thomas remains a game-time decision for Sunday's game in London against the Colts.

Analysis: Thomas tested a brace on his injured elbow in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for the game at Wembley Stadium. He has caught 11 passes for 148 yards and a touchdown in three games this season. If Thomas can't play, the Jaguars would have just two healthy tight ends -- 11-year veteran Marcedes Lewis and second-year player Neal Sterling.
9/30/2016 Josh Gordon, Cle, WR
The Browns appear to be done with the suspended Gordon, who put his football career on hold Thursday to enter an in-patient rehabilitation facility.

Analysis: Coach Hue Jackson told reporters Friday that Gordon is out of chances in Cleveland. "What's best for our football team is that we move forward and move on," Jackson said. "He's not going to be with us and we wish him well, but we're moving forward. We're going to move on." Gordon, who was suspended for the first four games in 2016, was scheduled to rejoin practice on Monday but instead he is out indefinitely.
9/30/2016 Delanie Walker, Ten, TE
Walker practiced Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Houston due to a hamstring injury.

Analysis: The injury prevented Walker from playing in the Titans' last game, a 17-10 loss to the Oakland Raiders. "I didn't even practice last Friday, so to be able to practice this Friday and make it through a whole practice, I feel there's a good opportunity that I can be playing Sunday," Walker said. Walker was officially limited on Friday, as he was on Thursday. Titans coach Mike Mularkey indicated that Walker's workload increased throughout the week.
9/30/2016 Eric Decker, NYJ, WR
The Jets will be without Decker this weekend - and maybe for a while longer. The star wide receiver has a partially torn rotator cuff that will sideline him for at least the Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Coach Todd Bowles announced Friday that Decker will be "week to week" with the right shoulder injury.

Analysis: Decker was injured against Buffalo on Sept. 15, but the shoulder worsened last Sunday during the Jets' loss at Kansas City . He said after the game that the shoulder was sore, but an MRI revealed that it was worse than that."I fell on it the second game against Buffalo and I've had issues with my shoulder for a while now," Decker said. "It doesn't mean you can't play through it."
9/30/2016 Sammy Watkins, Buf, WR
The Bills placed Watkins on the injured reserve list Friday.

Analysis: The move came hours after the team had ruled out Watkins for Sunday's game at the undefeated New England Patriots due to soreness in his surgically repaired left foot. Watkins, the No. 4 overall draft pick in 2014, will not be eligible to return to the Bills for eight weeks.
9/29/2016 Russell Wilson, Sea, QB
Wilson put to rest any question about his availability for Sunday's game when the Seahawks' quarterback said there is "no doubt" he will start for Seattle against the Jets.

Analysis: Wilson sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee Sunday as Seattle improved to 2-1 this season with a win over the 49ers. Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that the injury might lead the Seahawks to resting Wilson in Week 4 with a bye the following week. Wilson as a full participant in practice Wednesday and Thursday. "I feel great," Wilson said before Thursday's practice.
9/29/2016 Jay Cutler, Chi, QB
Cutler sat out Thursday's practice, strengthening the possibility that backup Brian Hoyer will make his second straight start on Sunday when the winless Bears host the Lions.

Analysis: Cutler, who had limited participation on Wednesday, is nursing a sprained right thumb that is expected to require two to three weeks of recovery. "We just didn't want to aggravate it more," coach John Fox told the Chicago Tribune. "The thumb on the throwing hand of a quarterback is a delicate situation. So we just figured we wouldn't go out there and have any stress on it."
9/29/2016 Rashad Jennings, NYG, RB
Jennings was limited in practice on Thursday after missing last weekend's game with a thumb injury.

Analysis: Stay tuned to see how Jennings progresses as the week goes on.
9/29/2016 Braxton Miller, Hou, WR
Miller will sit out for the second straight game this weekend.

Analysis: Miller is dealing with a hamstring injury.
9/29/2016 Delanie Walker, Ten, TE
Walker returned to practice on Thursday after missing Week 3 due to a hamstring injury.

Analysis: Walker should be a nice play this weekend against the Texans, if he's able to stay healthy.
9/29/2016 Alshon Jeffery, Chi, WR
Jeffery remained limited in Thursday's practice due to what is now being described as hamstring and knee issues.

Analysis: We think Jeffery will play this weekend, but stay tuned.
9/29/2016 Elvis Dumervil, Bal, LB
Dumervil confirmed to reporters on Thursday what teammate Terrell Suggs initially divulged by saying that he expects to make his season debut against the visiting Oakland Raiders on Sunday (1 p.m., ET).

Analysis: Dumervil returned to practice last week, but sat out on Friday and remained inactive two days later in Baltimore's 19-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
9/29/2016 Sammy Watkins, Buf, WR
Bills coach Rex Ryan isn't yet ready to rule out Watkins from playing at New England on Sunday after the receiver missed his second straight practice on Thursday because of a sore left foot.

Analysis: Ryan doesn't expect Watkins to practice on Friday either, and says the plan is to see how Watkins feels on Sunday before determining if he'll play. The starter has been out since last week when a teammate stepped on his surgically repaired foot during a walk-through.
9/29/2016 Dez Bryant, Dal, WR
Bryant missed medical appointments and team meetings over two days away from the Dallas Cowboys this week. Coach Jason Garrett says the star receiver was trying to avoid bad news about his injured right knee.

Analysis: Garrett said Bryant missed an MRI on Monday and a team meeting on Tuesday before finally getting the exam Wednesday. The MRI revealed a hairline fracture in a bone in his right knee, which he injured in last Sunday's win over Chicago. It's possible Bryant won't miss Sunday's game at San Francisco because the Cowboys have had similar scenarios with injury in the past.
