Quarterbacks

Ryan Tannehill (MIA)–The Dolphins are very pleased with Ryan Tannehill’s recovery from a knee injury he sustained in Week 8 and is considered probable for Week 10 against the Titans. Tannehill played through the injury in last week’s loss to the Colts but appears to be almost completing over the injury.

Mark Sanchez (NYJ)–The Jets will have Mark Sanchez under center on Sunday, despite the fact that he has been dealing with a lower back injury for most of the season. He was a full participant in practice on Thursday and will be listed as probable on the team’s official injury report.

Jake Locker (TEN)–For the first time in almost a month, the Titans will have Jake Locker back under center on Sunday. Locker was dealing with a shoulder injury for most of the last month but appears to be on track to start against the Dolphins in Week 10.

Running Backs

C.J. Spiller (BUF)–The Bills are hopeful that C.J. Spiller will be available on Sunday and considering he was a full participant in practice on Thursday he should be. Spiller is dealing with the same shoulder injury that he sustained late in September but the injury does not appear to be serious at this point.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis (CIN)–Although BenJarvus Green-Ellis is not suffering from an injury, he missed practice on Wednesday due to illness. He was back on the practice field on Thursday and was a full participant so expect him to be out there on Sunday.

Felix Jones (DAL)–The Cowboys are hopeful that Felix Jones will be on the field on Sunday against the Eagles after fully participating in practice on Thursday. Jones is suffering from a knee injury but it does not appear to be serious at this point.

DeMarco Murray (DAL)–After missing practice all week, DeMarco Murray is considered doubtful for this week’s game against the Eagles. Murray missed the team’s last three games with the same foot injury and it does not appear like it is getting any better, so he may miss even more time moving forward.

Mikel LeShoure (DET)–After fully participating in practice on Thursday, Mikel LeShoure is considered probable for this week’s matchup against the Vikings. LeShoure is dealing with an ankle injury but it doesn’t appear to be serious at this point.

Ben Tate (HOU)–The Texans are hopeful that Ben Tate will be ready to go for Sunday’s game against the Bears, but he has yet to practice this week. Tate is dealing with a hamstring injury that has given him trouble for most of the season and will be considered questionable once the team’s official injury report is released.

Jamaal Charles (KC)–It does not appear that Jamaal Charles will miss any time after suffering a neck injury in last week’s game after he was able to fully participate in practice on Thursday. Expect him to be listed as probable once the team’s official injury report is released on Friday.

Adrian Peterson (MIN)–Although Adrian Peterson did not practice on Thursday, the Vikings consider him to be probable form this week’s matchup against the Lions. Peterson is dealing with both an illness and a minor ankle injury, but neither appears to be serious enough to hold him out this week.

Darren Sproles (NO)–The Saints will be without Darren Sproles with weekend after he suffered a hand injury two weeks back. He has yet to be ruled out of this contest, but he is expected to miss a significant amount of time.

Ahmad Bradshaw (NYG)–There is no doubt that Ahmad Bradshaw will play on Sunday against the Bengals as he continues to deal with a foot injury. He was a limited participant in practice on Thursday and should be on the practice field the next two days as well, so don’t worry about his status too much at this point.

Darren McFadden (OAK)–The Raiders will likely be without Darren McFadden on Sunday after he suffered a high ankle sprain in last week’s loss to the Buccaneers. He has yet to practice this week and if he doesn’t on Friday, he should be listed as doubtful for Week 10 against the Ravens.

LeSean McCoy (PHI)–Although LeSan McCoy has yet to practice this week, the Eagles expect him to be on the field on Sunday when they take on the Cowboys. McCoy is dealing with an illness and should be listed as probable when the Eagles release their official injury report on Friday.

Jonathan Dwyer (PIT)–The Steelers expect to have Jonathan Dwyer back in their backfield on Sunday after he was able to practice fully on Thursday. Dwyer missed last week’s game with a quadriceps injury, but appears to have moved past it and is on track to rejoining the team.

Rashard Mendenhall (PIT)–After being a limited participant in practice on Thursday, the Steelers will likely list Rashard Mendenhall as questionable for this week’s game against the Chiefs. The team will get an extra day of practice with the game being played on Monday night, so that will only help Mendenhall as he continues to deal with an Achilles’ injury.

Marshawn Lynch (SEA)–The Seahawks are hopeful that they will have Marshawn Lynch in their backfield on Sunday after he was unable to practice for the second straight day on Thursday. Lynch is dealing with both back and wrist injuries and unless he practices on Friday, there is a chance he may be out so monitor his status for the next few days.

Wide Receivers

Alshon Jeffery (CHI)–The Bears held rookie Alshon Jeffery out of practice on Thursday and is considered questionable for Sunday’s game against the Texans. Jeffery suffered a hand injury in Week 5 and is expected to miss at least one more week before returning to the starting lineup.

Dez Bryant (DAL)–Although Dez Bryant is dealing with a hip injury, he was still able to practice fully on Thursday making him probable for this week’s game against the Eagles. Bryant has been dealing with this injury for a few weeks now, but it doesn’t appear to be serious at this point.

Calvin Johnson (DET)–Despite being a missing practice on Thursday the Lions consider Calvin Johnson to be questionable for this week’s game against the Vikings. Johnson is dealing with a minor knee injury that he sustained in the team’s Week 7 loss to the Bears, but it does not appear to be too serious.

Titus Young (DET)–Although Titus Young did not practice on Thursday, he is expected to play against the Vikings on Sunday. Young is dealing with a knee injury that has been troubling him over the last month of the season but it does not appear to be serious.

Percy Harvin (MIN)–After injuring his ankle in last week’s loss to the Seahawks, Percy Harvin was spotted using crutches to walk around at practice earlier in the week. Harvin is not expected to suit up in Week 10, but the Vikings appear to be holding onto some hope since they have yet to rule him out.

Brandon Lloyd (NE)–Although Brandon Lloyd was a limited participant in practice on Thursday, the Patriots expect to have him on the field on Sunday when they take on the Bills. Lloyd is dealing with a minor knee injury and should be listed as probable once the team’s official injury report is released.

Wes Welker (NE)–Like Brandon Lloyd, Wes Welker was a limited participant in practice on Thursday but is expected to play against the Bills. He is currently dealing with a nagging ankle injury that has forced him onto the injury report the last few weeks, but it’s nothing that should be considered too serious.

Hakeem Nicks (NYG)–Although Hakeem Nicks appears to be getting over his most recent knee injury, he was a limited participant in practice on Thursday and is considered questionable for Week 10 against the Bengals. There were no reports of him re-injuring his knee so I don’t see a situation where he would not be out there come Sunday.

Antonio Brown (PIT)–The Steelers will likely be without Antonio Brown on Monday night after he failed to practice once again on Thursday. Brown suffered an ankle injury that forced him out of the Steelers Week 9 win over the Giants and may be out past this week’s game.

Danny Amendola (STL)–The Rams may have Danny Amendila back in their lineup for the first time in over a month after he was able to participate in practice the last few days. He is trying to come back from a shoulder injury he sustained in October and will likely be listed as questionable on the Rams official injury report.

Kenny Britt (TEN)–After fully participating in practice on Thursday, the Titans expect to have Kenny Britt on the field when they take on the Dolphins in Week 10. Britt has been dealing with a nagging knee injury for the last few weeks but it looks like it won’t slow him down enough to hold him out of this game.

Kendall Wright (TEN)–The Titans expect to have Kendall Wright in their lineup on Sunday when they take on the Dolphins after he was able to fully participate in practice on Thursday. Wright suffered an elbow injury in Week 9 but it does not appear to be serious enough to force him to miss any time.

Tight Ends

Aaron Hernandez (NE)–The Patriots hope to have Aaron Hernandez on the field on Sunday after he was able to be a limited participant in practice on Thursday. Hernandez has been dealing with an ankle injury for most of the season and will need to step it up at practice if he wants to play this week.

Brandon Myers (OAK)–Although Brandon Myers was a limited participant in practice on Thursday, the Raiders expect him to be ready to go on Sunday when they take on the Ravens. Myers is dealing with a shoulder injury that does not appear to be serious at this point.
