While most of the NFL has turned the page to 2021, eight teams still have aspirations to hoist the Lombardi Trophy in February.

Here is a breakdown of which injuries could impact this weekend’s action:

Los Angeles Rams at Green Bay Packers, (Sat.) 4:35 PM

Rams

Player Position Injury Tue Wed Thu Game Status
John Wolford
QB Neck DNP DNP DNP Out
David Edwards
OL Ankle DNP DNP DNP Questionable
Aaron Donald
DL Ribs DNP DNP LP (-)
Cooper Kupp
WR Knee DNP DNP DNP Questionable
Terrell Lewis
OLB Ankle DNP DNP DNP Out
Andrew Whitworth
OL Knee LP LP FP (-)
Nsimba Webster
WR Hamstring LP FP FP (-)
Jared Goff
QB Right thumb FP FP FP (-)

Injured Reserve: RB Darrell Henderson, ankle; DB Taylor Rapp, knee; DB Terrell Burgess, ankle; LB Travin Howard, knee.

  • The two obvious injuries to keep an eye on are Aaron Donald and Cooper Kupp. Donald has torn rib cartilage but is expected to play. Kupp has a knee injury and is questionable.
  • Starting LG David Edwards is questionable with an ankle injury. He is graded as the 15th best overall Guard in the NFL by PFF, but 37th as a pass blocker. Joseph Noteboom is presumably the backup as he has taken 116 snaps at LG this season. Noteboom is a much worse graded run blocker than Edwards and has allowed virtually the same number of pressures as Edwards but on over 200 less snaps.
  • OLB Terrell Lewis has been declared out. Lewis is not a starter but has received snaps as a good rotational player as a pass rusher. He does grade out as the 3rd best front 7 defender for the Rams by PFF.

Packers

Player Position Injury Tue Wed Thu Game Status
Kingsley Keke
DL Concussion DNP DNP DNP Doubtful
Kevin King
CB Achilles LP LP LP (-)
Allen Lazard
WR Core/Wrist LP LP LP (-)
Marcedes Lewis
TE Knee LP DNP FP (-)
Za’Darius Smith
LB Ankle/Thumb LP LP LP (-)
Equanimeous St. Brown
WR Knee/Ankle LP LP LP (-)
Rick Wagner
T Knee LP LP LP (-)

Injured Reserve: T David Bakhtiari, knee; DE Billy Winn, triceps; DT Montravius Adams, toe; G Lane Taylor, knee.

  • David Bakhtiari is obviously out this week but so LT Billy Turner will fill in again. Turner has played snaps at LT in four games this season and has allowed 7 pressures and 1 sack on 148 pass block snaps (4.7% pressure rate). He did struggle a bit in his last start against the Bears, allowing 3 pressures The Packers signed Jared Veldheer off the Colts practice squad as a possible replacement, but he is out after testing positive for COVID-19.

Baltimore Ravens at Buffalo Bills, (Sat.) 8:15 PM

Ravens

Player Position Injury Tue Wed Thu Game Status
Matthew Judon
OLB Illness DNP DNP FP (-)
Marcus Peters
CB Back DNP DNP LP Questionable
D.J. Fluker
G Knee LP LP LP Questionable

Injured Reserve: QB Robert Griffin III, hamstring; TE Nick Boyle, knee; T Ronnie Stanley, ankle; CB Tavon Young, knee.

  • Two potential injury issues for the Ravens come in the way of CB Marcus Peters and RT DJ Fluker. Harbaugh did say he expects Peters to play but Fluker is questionable. Fluker and Tyre Philips have split snaps at RT the last 4 games so if Fluker can’t go, they have a viable fill in. Both guys have struggled this season, but Philips has allowed the most sacks on the Ravens OL.

Bills

Player Position Injury Tue Wed Thu Game Status
Cole Beasley
WR Knee LP LP LP (-)
Stefon Diggs
WR Oblique LP LP FP (-)
Tremaine Edmunds
LB Hamstring LP LP FP (-)
Jake Fromm
QB Not injury LP LP LP (-)
Darryl Johnson
DE Knee DNP DNP DNP Questionable
Ed Oliver
DT Ankle LP LP FP (-)
Justin Zimmer
DT Groin LP LP FP (-)

Injured Reserve: RB Zack Moss, ankle; T Cody Ford, knee; LB Del’Shawn Phillips, quadriceps.

  • Rookie RB Zack Moss is out for the playoffs so Devin Singletary should take all the RB snaps with veteran Devonta Freeman potentially giving him a random rest.

Cleveland Browns at Kansas City Chiefs, 3:05 PM

Browns

Player Position Injury Wed Thu Fri Game Status
Jack Conklin
T Hamstring/Knee DNP DNP LP Questionable
Myles Garrett
DE Shoulder LP LP FP (-)
B.J. Goodson
LB Shoulder DNP DNP LP Questionable
David Njoku

Sheldon Richardson
DT Neck LP LP FP (-)
Malcolm Smith
LB Ankle FP FP FP (-)
Wyatt Teller

Injured Reserve: T Michael Dunn, calf; DB Robert Jackson, hamstring; C Nick Harris, knee; DE Olivier Vernon, Achilles; T Chris Hubbard, knee; WR Odell Beckham Jr., knee; CB Greedy Williams, shoulder; WR Jojo Natson, knee; S Grant Delpit, Achilles.

  • The Browns received great news with the return of Guard Joel Bitonio and defensive starters in CB Denzel Ward and CB Kevin Johnson.
  • The biggest potential injury issue this week is from RT Jack Conklin who left the Steelers game with a bad hamstring. Kendall Lamm would get the start if Conklin doesn’t go. He only allowed 1 pressure on 30 pass block snaps last week against the Steelers. He has allowed 6 pressures on 103 pass block snaps on the season.

Chiefs

Player Position Injury Wed Thu Fri Game Status
Rashad Fenton
CB Foot / Ankle DNP LP LP Questionable
Willie Gay
LB Ankle DNP DNP DNP Out
Sammy Watkins
WR Calf DNP DNP DNP Out
Clyde Edwards-Helaire
RB Ankle / Hip LP DNP DNP Questionable
Deon Yelder
TE Groin LP DNP DNP Questionable

Injured Reserve: T Mitchell Schwartz, back; DE Taco Charlton, ankle; G Kelechi Osemele, knee.

  • RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire is questionable and Willie Gay is out. Gay is a rookie LB but has been the best Chiefs LB this season, posting a 68.1 PFF grade and ranks 13th best in the NFL in tackling efficiency among NFL LBs. Darius Harris could start, and he is graded 178 out of 186 LBs overall by PFF.
  • WR Sammy Watkins is out Sunday and helps the Browns with one less weapon to deal with.

  • RB Ronald Jones is a game time decision. Leonard Fournette will start either way according to Bruce Arians.
  • Starting Guard Alex Cappa broke his ankle last week and is out Sunday. Starting in his place will be little used Aaron Stinnie, who only has played 46 snaps in his career including 30 this season. He has not allowed a pressure on any snap this season.
  • Backup LB Kevin Minter will be inactive after being added to the reserve/COVID-19 list this week. He had started two-straight games for Devin White, who spent the last two weeks on the reserve/COVID-19 list. White will be available on Sunday.
  • Multiple players are listed as questionable, but all should play including CB Carlton Davis, WRs Mike Evans and Chris Godwin.

Saints

Injured Reserve: G Nick Easton, concussion; LB Kwon Alexander, Achilles.

  • Nobody has been ruled out yet for New Orleans on offense, but Latavius Murray and Taysom Hill are questionable. None of those guys practiced this week. Trey Hendrickson, Jared Cook and Terron Armstead were limited but all should play. Hendrickson terrorized the Bucs this season with 10 pressures and 3 sacks in two games. He did miss last week’s game against Chicago.
  • Will Clapp will be inactive on Sunday after testing positive for COVID-19.
