Team-by-team review of any key fantasy player and their prospects for playing based on this week’s practice activity and team statements. Only those players listed on the team’s final official injury report will be addressed unless the situation warrants.

PLEASE NOTE: The NFL releases their final official injury report late on Friday (after 5:00pm ET) and teams on the west coast often report their injuries late and are not included.

This week’s key game-time decisions: QB Jacoby Brissett (IND)

ARIZONA CARDINALS
RB David Johnson
(ankle) will return to action after practicing fully all week and not being included on the team’s final injury report. RB Chase Edmonds (hamstring) remains out this week.

QB Matt Ryan (ankle) put in a limited week of practice but he didn’t make the team’s final injury report and is expected to return to action. RB Ito Smith (neck) remains out.

BALTIMORE RAVENS
QB Lamar Jackson (illness) didn’t practice Thursday but hit the field in full Friday and is expected to suit up despite his questionable status. WR Marquise Brown (ankle, thigh) was rested in a limited practice Friday but is expected to play Sunday with his questionable tag.

TE Ricky Seals-Jones (knee) didn’t practice all week and is on the downside of his questionable tag and not likely to play Sunday.

DALLAS COWBOYS
WR Amari Cooper (knee, ankle) had a very limited week of practice but is expected to play through his questionable tag.

DENVER BRONCOS – Bye Week
TE Jeff Heuerman (knee) was inactive in Week 9 and his return to action is unclear at this time.

DETROIT LIONS
QB Matthew Stafford (hip, back) was limited in practice all week and is expected to play through the pain and his questionable tag. He hasn’t missed a game since 2010.

No injuries of fantasy note.

HOUSTON TEXANS – Bye Week
WR Will Fuller (hamstring) was ruled out last week and is expected to miss several more.

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS – Bye Week
The Jaguars activated QB Nick Foles (clavicle) from injured reserve this week and is expected to be the starter in Week 11. WR Dede Westbrook (shoulder) made the trip to London last week but didn’t get on the field. He should return to action following this week’s bye.

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS
QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) practiced fully all week, didn’t make the team’s final injury report and is expected to return to the playing field Sunday.

LOS ANGELES CHARGERS – Played Thursday Night
No injuries of fantasy note.

NEW YORK GIANTS
WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) was placed back into concussion protocol after his symptoms reappeared. He’s out this week and is week-to-week going forward. TE Evan Engram (foot) has been diagnosed with a mid-foot sprain and is also out and considered week-to-week.

NEW YORK JETS
RB Le’Veon Bell (knee, ankle) only put in limited practices this week on Thursday and Friday but the team is optimistic he’ll play despite them tagging him as questionable. Typical veteran week for WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) with limited practice time and a questionable tag he’ll play through.
