Indianapolis Colts (-2) at New England Patriots(Germany)

  • Colts: CB JuJu Brents (quad), TE Drew Ogletree (foot) OUT; WR Josh Downs (knee), LB Zaire Franklin (knee) QUESTIONABLE
  • Patriots: OT Trent Brown (personal/ankle), CB J.C. Jackson (personal), WR DeVante Parker (concussion) OUT; DL Christian Barmore (knee), LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (hamstring), CB Myles Bryant (chest), WR Demario Douglas (ankle), CB Jack Jones (knee), CB Jonathan Jones (knee), WR Matthew Slater (ankle), OL Vederian Lowe (ankle), DL Deatrich Wise Jr. (shoulder) QUESTIONABLE

Franklin's status improved during the week to the point where he was a full practice participant on Friday. Downs, however, did not practice throughout the week. He did make the trip over to Germany ahead of Sunday's game.

For the Patriots, Brown won't play after he missed Wednesday's practice for unspecified personal reasons. Like Brown, Jackson did not travel to Germany with the rest of the team due to reliability and performance issues. Bill Belichick said he expects Jackson to rejoin the team next week.

Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens (-6.5)

  • Browns: WR David Bell (knee), WR Marquise Goodwin (concussion), T Dawand Jones (knee/shoulder) OUT; CB Greg Newsome II (groin), RB Pierre Strong Jr. (hamstring) QUESTIONABLE
  • Ravens: CB Jalyn Armour-Davis (illness), CB Marlon Humphrey (hamstring), RB Keaton Mitchell (hamstring), T Morgan Moses (shoulder) QUESTIONABLE

Both Newsome and Strong were limited during Friday's practice for the Browns. For the Ravens, every questionable player sans Humphrey was a full participant during Friday's practice.

Houston Texans at Cincinnati Bengals (-6.5)

  • Texans: FB Andrew Beck (ankle/elbow/shoulder), K Ka'imi Fairbairn (quad), LB Jake Hansen (hamstring/hand), TE Brevin Jordan (foot), RB Dameon Pierce (ankle), S Jimmie Ward (hamstring), WR Nico Collins (calf), LB Henry To'oTo'o (concussion) OUT; DE Jerry Hughes (back) QUESTIONABLE
  • Bengals: DE Sam Hubbard (ankle), WR Tee Higgins (hamstring) OUT; DT Josh Tupou (shoulder) DOUBTFUL; WR Ja'Marr Chase (back), WR Charlie Jones (thumb) QUESTIONABLE

Houston's injury report this week was longer than the opening scroll in a Star Wars film. Of their questionable players, Woods and Hughes are trending upward as both players were full participants on Friday.

Cincy will be down at least two starters in Hubbard and Higgins. Both did not practice on Thursday and Friday. The headline is Chase, however, who is officially listed as questionable with a back issue. He was limited on Thursday and Friday after missing practice Wednesday. The Bengals announced on Saturday that two wide receivers -- Shedrick Jackson and Stanley Morgan -- have been elevated from the practice squad to the active roster.

New Orleans Saints (-2.5) at Minnesota Vikings

  • Saints: RB Kendre Miller (ankle), DE Isaiah Foskey (quad) OUT; FB Adam Prentice (knee) QUESTIONABLE
  • Vikings: QB Jaren Hall (concussion), WR Justin Jefferson (hamstring) OUT; DL Dean Lowry (groin) DOUBTFUL; LB Brian Asamoah II (ankle), TE T.J. Hockenson (ribs), WR K.J. Osborn (concussion), OG Chris Reed (foot) QUESTIONABLE

Prentice was a full practice participant all week after he was designated to return from injured reserve.

Vikings star wideout Justin Jefferson was initially listed as questionable to return to the lineup after being limited in practice all week, but he has since been downgraded to out and will miss Sunday's game due to the hamstring injury that put him on IR. Hockenson is questionable with injured ribs after being limited in practice all week, as is Osborn, who suffered a concussion last Sunday. He was a full participant in practice on Friday.

Tennessee Titans at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-1)

  • Titans: OG Daniel Brunskill (ankle), WR Treylon Burks (concussion), CB Sean Murphy-Bunting (thumb), OT Nicholas Petit-Frere (shoulder), S Mike Brown (ankle) OUT; CB Anthony Kendall (hamstring), QB Ryan Tannehill (ankle) QUESTIONABLE
  • Buccaneers: DB Josh Hayes (concussion) OUT; OG Matt Feiler (knee) DOUBTFUL; CB Carlton Davis (toe), CB Jamel Dean (concussion), DL Logan Hall (groin), WR Trey Palmer (neck/illness), DL Calijah Kancey (quadriceps) QUESTIONABLE

The Titans will be without four starters on Sunday, including two on the offensive line in Brunskill and NPF. Murphy-Bunting won't get to play against his former team, as he has been ruled out with a thumb injury. Tannehill is questionable to suit up for the first time since Week 6, although if he does, he will be the backup to rookie quarterbackWill Levis.

The Bucs could be shorthanded in the secondary, as Davis and Dean are questionable to play. Davis was limited on Friday after missing Wednesday and Thursday, while Dean was a full participant on Friday. Feiler is doubtful even after being a limited participant in practice all week, and then the rookie Kancey is questionable after being limited in practice on Thursday and Friday.

San Francisco 49ers (-3) at Jacksonville Jaguars

  • 49ers: G Aaron Banks (toe), DE Drake Jackson (knee) OUT; Robert Beal (hamstring), LB Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles (ankle), DT Javon Hargrave (knee), CB Darrell Luter (knee), T Trent Williams (ankle), CB Samuel Womack (knee) QUESTIONABLE
  • Jaguars: WR Zay Jones (knee) OUT; CB Tyson Campbell (hamstring), S Andre Cisco (hamstring), S Daniel Thomas (hamstring), OL Ezra Cleveland (toe) QUESTIONABLE

A big positive for the 49ers is the return of Deebo Samuel, who is back in the lineup after missing the team's past two games. Williams, meanwhile, is listed as questionable after returning to practice in a limited capacity Thursday and Friday.

Every player on the Jaguars' injury report was limited throughout the week. Jones, who hasn't played since Week 5, will miss another week, but a positive is that this was the first week he practiced since getting injured.

Green Bay Packers at Pittsburgh Steelers (-3)

  • Packers: CB Jaire Alexander (shoulder), LB Quay Walker (groin) DOUBTFUL; DL Kenny Clark (shoulder), S Rudy Ford (calf), C/G Josh Myers (knee), T Josh Nijman (back), G Jon Runyan (neck) QUESTIONABLE
  • Steelers: S Minkah Fitzpatrick (hamstring), DL Montravius Adams (ankle) OUT

Alexander and Walker didn't practice this week, while each of the Packers' questionable players were limited during Friday's practice. When asked about Walker, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said that he doesn't think his injury is a "long-term concern."

Fitzpatrick will miss his second straight game after initially getting injured during Pittsburgh's Week 8 loss to Jacksonville. Damontae Kazee, who had an interception in the Steelers' loss to the Jaguars, will continue to start in Fitzpatrick's place.

Atlanta Falcons (-1.5) at Arizona Cardinals

  • Falcons: DB Dee Alford (ankle), WR Mack Hollins (ankle) OUT; DT David Onyemata (ankle) QUESTIONABLE
  • Cardinals: OL Trystan Colon-Castillo (calf), RB Emari Demercado (toe) OUT; RB James Conner (knee), OL Will Hernandez (knee), OL D.J. Humphries (ankle), OL Carter O'Donnell (ankle), TE Geoff Swaim (back), LB ZekeTurner (hamstring), WR Michael Wilson (shoulder) QUESTIONABLE

Onyemata is an underrated player for the Falcons defense. He missed practice Wednesday with an ankle injury, but did return as a limited participant on Thursday and Friday. He's listed as questionable. Atlanta gets wide receiver Drake London back this week. He was a full participant in practice on Thursday and Friday after being limited with a groin injury on Wednesday, and has no game designation.

Kyler Murray is back under center for the Cardinals, and his running back, Conner, is trending in the right direction to return to the lineup for the first time in five weeks. He was limited in practice all week with his knee injury. Michael Wilson is questionable after being limited all week with a shoulder injury.

Detroit Lions (-3) at Los Angeles Chargers

  • Lions: Halapoulivaati Vaitai (back) OUT; Levi Onwuzurike (hip) DOUBTFUL; WR Donovan Peoples-Jones (ribs), Dan Skipper (ribs) QUESTIONABLE
  • Chargers: None

Onwuzurike appeared on the injury report Thursday and did not practice each of the past two days. Peoples-Jones was limited all week, while Skipper was a full practice participant Friday.

"Everyone is a go," is how the Chargers described their injury front ahead of Sunday's game.

Washington Commanders at Seattle Seahawks (-6)

  • Commanders: WR Curtis Samuel (toe) QUESTIONABLE
  • Seahawks: G Anthony Bradford (knee/NIR) OUT; LB Jordyn Brooks (hamstring), RB DeeJay Dallas (shoulder), TE Colby Parkinson (biceps), RB Kenny McIntosh (knee) QUESTIONABLE

As you can see, Washington is about as healthy as you can be at this point in the season (with the exception being the Chargers). It is hoping to have Samuel after he missed last week's win over the Patriots.

Fortunately for Seattle, all of its questionable players were full practice participants Friday. When asked about Brooks, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said there is a "good chance" the former first-round pick suits up against Washington.

New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys (-17)

  • Giants: CB Adoree' Jackson (concussion/neck), RB Deon Jackson (concussion), OT Evan Neal (ankle) OUT; WR Parris Campbell (hamstring), RB Jashaun Corbin (hamstring), OG Mark Glowinski (personal), DE Azeez Ojulari (ankle) QUESTIONABLE
  • Cowboys: WR KaVontae Turpin (shoulder) QUESTIONABLE

The Giants are the biggest underdogs of the 2023 NFL season this week in Dallas, and they will be without several starters. Jackson and Neal have already been ruled out, and then Glowinski is questionable with a personal matter after missing practice on Thursday and Friday. Andrew Thomas will play Sunday after being limited earlier in the week with a hamstring injury.

For the Cowboys, Turpin is questionable to play after not practicing all week with a shoulder injury. Defensive tackle Osa Odighizuwa (hamstring) and offensive tackle Tyron Smith (illness) were upgraded to full participants in practice on Friday, and have no game designations. Linebacker Markquese Bell was limited all week, but has no game designation either.

New York Jets at Las Vegas Raiders(PICK)

  • Jets: OL Duane Brown (hip), LB Chazz Surratt (ankle), OL Billy Turner (finger) OUT; DL Will McDonald (ankle) QUESTIONABLE
  • Raiders: OT Kolton Miller (shoulder) DOUBTFUL; FB Jakob Johnson (concussion), CB Marcus Peters (knee) QUESTIONABLE

McDonald's injury occurred late in the week. While his absence would hurt, the Jets have good depth at EDGE rusher with Jermaine Johnson II, John Franklin-Myers, Carl Lawson and Micheal Clemons and Bryce Huff.

Las Vegas had a slew of players on their injury report but only three players received injury designations. Miller did not practice all week, while Johnson was limited after not practicing the previous two days. Peters was limited the past two days.

Denver Broncos at Buffalo Bills (-7.5) (Monday)

  • Broncos: No injuries to report
  • Bills: CB Christian Benford (hamstring), S Micah Hyde (neck, stinger) OUT; LB Terrel Bernard (concussion) OUT

Denver has no players listed with a game designation as everyone on the 53-man roster is fully healthy.

Stefon Diggs was once again a limited participant during Saturday's practice, but the Bills receiver does not carry a designation in the final injury report. That indicates that the back injury he's been dealing with is not serious enough that it'll keep him sidelined for this matchup against Denver. Diggs himself noted that he is "100%" playing.
