Pro Playoff Pick'em

Latest Player News

Mark Nzeocha (Achilles) is questionable to play in Week 4, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Impact

Nzeocha hasn't been healthy enough to play in any contest this season. He was able to participate in each practice this week, though, but his status will be confirmed before kickoff nonetheless.

Jeff Heath (knee) is questionable to play in Week 4, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Impact

Heath was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but managed to fully participate on Friday. He's expected to play.

Tyler Lockett (knee) logged a full practice Friday and does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jets, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

Impact

Lockett's availability was never in much question, as he played through the same injury last week without aggravating the issue. However, he didn't draw any targets in a win over the 49ers, suggesting he may have been playing at less than full strength. Friday's full practice is encouraging for his odds to be more involved this time around.

Andrew Gachkar (neck) is questionable to play in Week 4, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Impact

After missing practice on Wednesday, Gachkar was ultimately upgraded to a full participant on Friday and seems likely to play on Sunday.

Doug Free (quadriceps) is questionable to play in Week 4, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Impact

Free was questionable for Week 3 as well, but ultimately played on every snap. He's expected to play this week as well, but his status will be confirmed prior to the start of the game.

Tony Romo (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in San Francisco, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Impact

Romo was initially listed as questionable, but it appears that was nothing more than a mistake. He's expected to miss at least three or four more weeks.

Sheldon Price is listed as doubtful for Week 4 due to a thigh injury.

Impact

It's unclear how Price suffered his injury but he'll likely miss at least one game with the setback. As he's just a depth corner it shouldn't impact the team greatly.

Jack Crawford (shoulder) is questionable to play in Week 4, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Impact

Crawford was questionable to play prior to Week 3 as well, but ended up playing. He should again be fine for Sunday's tilt.

Sammy Watkins (foot) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

Impact

Watkins underwent foot surgery in April to repair a Jones fracture in the fifth metatarsal, a procedure that required a screw to be inserted in his left foot. Historically, that surgery comes with a high risk for re-injury due to complications associated with the surgical hardware, which is exactly what occurred when Watkins' foot bothered him again during Week 1. Since then, he's notably been limited by the discomfort, resulting in a Week 3 absence and subsequent missed practices, and now lands on injured reserve due to the issue. With Watkins sidelined, the Bills signed Justin Hunter on Friday, but with Greg Salas (groin) out for Week 4, Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin figure to lead Buffalo's receivers this weekend against the Patriots.

Ronnie Stanley (foot) is doubtful to play in Sunday's Week 4 contest.

Impact

Stanley played through his foot injury last week but it appears as though the situation has since worsened, though it still isn't considered overly serious. Look for James Hurst to start if Stanley is held out.

Quintin Demps (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's contest against Tennessee.

Impact

Demps was limited in practice this week and his status looks to be up in the air for Sunday. Eddie Pleasant will be in line for the spot start if Demps is held out.

Josh Hill (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in San Diego.

Impact

With Hill missing a third straight game, Coby Fleener once again has virtually no competition for snaps. Unless he gets healthy and Fleener heads in the other direction, Hill won't have much of a role in the New Orleans offense.

Justin Hunter has been claimed off waivers by the Bills.

Impact

Hunter was released by the Dolphins earlier this week, which followed him being cut from the Titans ahead of the regular season. However, in wake of Sammy Watkins (foot) being placed on injured reserve, and with Greg Salas (groin) also out Sunday, the Bills could certainly use some depth at wide receiver going into this weekend. While Hunter will be hard-pressed to know much of Buffalo's offensive playbook by Sunday's game against the Patriots, the team's wide receiver injuries could open opportunities for him in the weeks to come.

Brian Cushing (knee) is questionable to play in the Texans' Week 4 matchup with the Titans.

Impact

Cushing hasn't played since spraining his MCL against the Bears in the team's season opener and he was initially ruled out for six weeks. However, he practiced in a limited fashion all week and could return after just two games off. Look for Max Bullough to continue to see additional snaps if Cushing is held out again or limited in a return.

Russell Wilson (knee/ankle) is slated to play in Sunday's game against the Jets.

Impact

A full practice participant throughout the week, Wilson doesn't have a designation on the final injury report. He'll start Sunday's game in New York, but his mobility could be quite limited, just as it was the past two weeks. Wilson will wear a brace to help stabilize his sprained left knee.

Garrett Celek (back) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, CSN Bay Area reports.

Impact

Celek seemingly had a good opportunity to lead the 49ers' tight ends after Vance McDonald (hip) was forced to exit in Week 3, but his own back ailment has kept him limited this week. As a result, both players are listed as questionable in advance of Sunday's contest, leaving the sparingly-used Blake Bell as San Francisco's only healthy option at the position.

Duane Brown (knee) has officially been listed as out for Week 4.

Impact

The team stated as far back as last week that Brown would not play this Sunday but after he returned to practice in a limited fashion there was some thought he could make his season debut. There's a chance he's able to return in Week 5.

Parker Ehinger (concussion) was removed from Kansas City's final Week 4 injury report.

Impact

Ehinger missed the Chiefs' last two games due to his concussion but has finally been cleared to return to action after he practiced in a limited fashion all week.

Josh Norman (illness) was not listed on the Redskins' injury report on Friday and is healthy to play in Week 4, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Impact

Norman missed practice on Thursday, but returned on Friday and participated in full. His availability will go a long ways for a Redskins team already without his fellow starting cornerback, Bashaud Breeland.

Jimmy Graham (knee/back) was a full participant at Friday's practice, after experiencing back spasms earlier in the week, Sports Radio KJR's Curtis Crabtree reports.

Impact

According to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times, head coach Pete Carroll said Graham was fine Friday and is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Jets. Owners will still want to check back when inactives are released, as Carroll is notoriously deceptive when discussing injuries, and Graham is still technically listed as questionable. That being said, the veteran tight end seems likely to suit up for Sunday's 1:00 P.M. ET kickoff.
