Date Player
10/18/2017 Brian Orakpo, Ten, LB
Orakpo was held out of Wednesday's practice, but it was more to give the veteran pass rusher a rest and was not injury related.

Analysis: Orakpo has just one sack in six games thus far after leading the team in 10.5 a year ago.
10/18/2017 Paul Perkins, NYG, RB
Perkins (ribs) will miss a third straight game Sunday.

Analysis: With Orleans Darkwa showing great promise the last two weeks, it's very possible Perkins' days as the Giants' lead back are over.
10/18/2017 Jake Butt, Den, TE
Butt took snaps with the starters Wednesday for the first time since being drafted in April while recovering from knee surgery.

Analysis: The star at Michigan slipped from a projected first-round draft pick to the fifth round after tearing his right ACL in the Orange Bowl. Butt is eligible to be activated anytime over the next three weeks, although coach Vance Joseph said it's unlikely he'll play Sunday when the Broncos visit the Chargers.
10/18/2017 Melvin Gordon, LAC, RB
Gordon has been limited in practice this week with an injured shoulder and he's listed as questionable for Sunday, but all signs point to him suiting up in Week 7.

Analysis: Gordon has been a beast of the last two weeks, totaling 188 yards on the ground, 125 receiving yards and four touchdowns. This Sunday, the Chargers host a Broncos team which is second in the NFL against the run, yielding just 70.2 rushing yards per game.
10/18/2017 Mike Wallace, Bal, WR
Wallace missed practice for the second straight day Friday after being limited Wednesday due to a back injury, but he said earlier in the week he would play Sunday in Minnesota.

Analysis: Wallace, who had one catch in each of the first three games, had three receptions last week, failing to take advantage of Jeremy Maclin's absence.
10/18/2017 Rex Burkhead, NE, RB
Burkhead was limited in Wednesday's practice with a rib injury.

Analysis: Burkhead, who has missed the last four games, was New England's starting running back for the seasons for two contests, but only managed five carries and four receptions.
10/18/2017 Chris Hogan, NE, WR
Hogan was limited in Wednesday's practice with a rib injury, which could help explain his weak showing against the Jets last week. He says he will play Sunday night versus the Falcons.

Analysis: Hogan caught just one pass in Week 6 after having 32 targets and five TDs over his previous four games.
10/18/2017 Marcus Mariota, Ten, QB
Mariota was a full participant at Wednesday's practice and is on track to play Sunday against the Browns.

Analysis: Mariota didn't move around much after missing a game with a strained left hamstring, but still managed to throw for a season-high 306 yards Monday against the Colts.
10/18/2017 Andrew Luck, Ind, QB
Luck is being shut down due to soreness in his surgically repaired right shoulder.

Analysis: Luck, who has yet to take a snap this season and only recently returned to practice, is without a timetable for his return. Colts general manager Chris Ballard emphasized that Luck was not being shut down for the season and there are no plans to place him on season-ending injured reserve. He said he doesn't expect his franchise quarterback to be out of practice long.
10/18/2017 NaVorro Bowman, Oak, LB
Bowman will make his debut with the Raiders on Thursday against the Chiefs.

Analysis: Bowman was released after seven-plus seasons with the 49ers on Friday and made the short move across the Bay, signing a $3 million, one-year contract with Oakland on Monday. Once one of the top insider linebackers in the league, Bowman brings a veteran presence to Oakland's young linebacker group that started rookie Marquel Lee and second-year player Corey James for most of the year.
10/18/2017 Kelvin Benjamin, Car, WR
Benjamin returned to practice Friday after sitting out the previous two days with knee swelling, and he's active for Sunday's game in Chicago.

Analysis: After a slow start to the season, Carolina's No. 1 receiver has hauled in 17 receptions for 261 yards and a touchdown over his past three games.
10/18/2017 Demaryius Thomas, Den, WR
Thomas was back at practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's practice due to an injured leg and expects to play Sunday against the Chargers.

Analysis: Thomas is coming off his best performance with 10 receptions for 133 yards, but is still seeking his first touchdown on the season.
10/18/2017 Stefon Diggs, Min, WR
Diggs (groin) will not play in Week 7 against the Ravens despite returning to practice Friday. He also missed last week's win over Green Bay.

Analysis: Diggs had totaled 13 catches for 271 yards in his two previous games before catching just one pass in Week 5.
10/18/2017 Albert Wilson, KC, WR
Wilson (knee) is active for Thursday's game in Oakland.

Analysis: Wilson sat out this past Sunday after starting Kansas City's previous two games. Even as a starter he still wasn't getting a lot of balls thrown his way with just seven targets in Weeks 4 and 5.
10/18/2017 Charcandrick West, KC, RB
West has officially been ruled out for Thursday's game in Oakland with a concussion.
10/18/2017 DeVante Parker, Mia, WR
Parker didn't practice this week and won't play in Sunday's game against the Jets after missing last week's game in Atlanta with an ankle injury.

Analysis: Parker was targeted 27 times in Miami's first three games before leaving after just three snaps in Week 5 against the Titans.
10/17/2017 Deonte Thompson, Buf, WR
The Buffalo Bills have restocked their injury-thinned offense by signing receiver Deonte Thompson.

Analysis: Thompson has five-plus seasons of NFL experience and had 11 catches for 125 yards and a touchdown with Chicago before being released by the Bears last week. Thompson played his first two seasons with Baltimore and then had no catches in playing one game for Buffalo in 2014.
10/17/2017 DeMarco Murray, Ten, RB
Murray returned to practice Friday and will play in Week 7 despite having a tight hamstring.

Analysis: He was seen limping on the field Monday night and ended up with seven fewer carries than Derrick Henry. The injury along with Henry rushing for 131 yards Monday would seem to make Murray a less attractive option this week, especially against a Browns defense which has been good against the run.
10/17/2017 Josh Lambo, Jax, K
The Jags signed Lambo to replace the ineffective Jason Myers.

Analysis: Lambo made 54 of 64 field goals (81.2 percent) and 70 of 78 extra points (89.7 percent) in two seasons with the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers cut Lambo in September and went with rookie Younghoe Koo, who has since been released. Lambo was 2 for 2 in the preseason, with a longest of 53 yards. He will make his debut Sunday at Indianapolis.
10/17/2017 Jason Myers, Jax, K
The Jacksonville Jaguars have parted ways with Myers, waiving him two days after he hooked two 54-yard field goals in a loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Analysis: Myers missed 12 extra points and 15 field goals in 38 career games. He was 0 for 3 from beyond 50 yards this season.
