Quarterbacks Kevin Kolb (ARI)--As expected, Kevin Kolb has not practiced this week and is expected to miss his third straight game with a rib injury. He should be out for at least two more games before returning to the Cardinals starting lineup. Brandon Weeden (CLE)--Despite suffering from both groin and thigh injuries, Brandon Weeden was a full participant in practice on Thursday and is considered probable for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. The injuries are not to be considered serious, but expect to see him on the team’s injury reports over the next few weeks. Peyton Manning (DEN)--The Broncos are not worried about Peyton Manning’s right thumb injury and that was shown on Thursday when he was a full participant in practice. Those who own Manning should not sweat this injury as it appears to be minor.   Aaron Rodgers (GB)--As expected, Aaron Rodgers was a full participant in practice on Thursday and will play this weekend against the Cardinals. Rodgers is dealing with a minor calf injury, but it wasn’t enough to hold him out of practice or limited him in any way. Andrew Luck (IND)--The Colts were not worried about Andrew Luck’s knee injury, but it was nice to see him be a full participant in practice on Thursday just to make that statement even stronger. Luck will be leading the Colts against the Dolphins on Sunday as the two 4-3 teams faceoff trying to stay in the playoff hunt. Blaine Gabbert (JAC)--The Jaguars are hopeful that Blaine Gabbert will be ready to go on Sunday after he was able to be a full participant in practice on Thursday. Gabbert is dealing with a shoulder injury that knocked him out of the team’s Week 7 matchup with the Raiders, but is considered probable for Sunday’s matchup with the Lions. Ryan Tannehill (MIA)--The Dolphins are concerned that Ryan Tannehill may be out this week when they take on the Colts, but he was a limited participant in practice on Thursday. Tannehill suffered a knee injury in last week’s win over the Jets and if he can’t play on Sunday it will be Matt Moore under center. 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. Trent Richardson (CLE)--The Browns has limited Trent Richardson’s participation in practice this week but they expect to have him in their backfield when they face off with the Ravens on Sunday. Richardson is dealing with chest and ribs injuries that he sustained a few weeks back and appears to be getting better as the weeks go on.   Felix Jones (DAL)--The Cowboys are hopeful that Felix Jones will be on the field on Sunday against the Falcons, but he was a limited participant in practice on Thursday. Jones is suffering from a knee injury and if he can’t play this week look for Phillip Tanner to get the bulk of the team’s carries.   DeMarco Murray (DAL)--After missing practice all week, DeMarco Murray is considered doubtful for this week’s game against the Falcons. Murray missed the team’s last two 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.    Ben Tate (HOU)--The Texans are hopeful that Ben Tate will be ready to go for Sunday’s game against the Bills, 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. Donald Brown (IND)-- The Colts are being careful with Donald Brown’s knee injury and have held him out of practice the last two days. He played last week so he is expected to be on the field this Sunday, but he will likely be considered questionable once the team’s injury report is released. Maurice Jones-Drew (JAC)--As expected, Maurice Jones-Drew has not practiced all week and has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Lions. Jones-Drew suffered a foot injury two weeks ago and is expected to miss an extended amount of time due to the severity of the injury. Daniel Thomas (MIA)-- The Dolphins expect to have Daniel Thomas in their backfield on Sunday after he was able to be a full participant in practice on Thursday. Thomas is dealing with an elbow injury he sustained last week, but the injury does not appear to be serious. Adrian Peterson (MIN)--Despite being a limited participant in practice on Thursday the Vikings expect to have Adrian Peterson in their backfield when the team takes on the Seahawks. Peterson is dealing with a minor ankle injury and it should not keep him out of the lineup. Darren Sproles (NO)--The Saints are hopeful that Darren Sproles will be able to play on Sunday night when the team takes on the Eagles, but he was unable to practice on Thursday. Sproles suffered a hand injury in last week’s loss to the Broncos and will likely be considered questionable once the Saints release their injury report. Ahmad Bradshaw (NYG)--There is no doubt that Ahmad Bradshaw will play on Sunday against the Steelers 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.   Darren McFadden (OAK)--After being a full participant in practice on Thursday, Darren McFadden is considered probable for Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers. McFadden has been dealing with a shoulder injury but it doesn’t appear to be anything to worry about moving forward. Rashard Mendenhall (PIT)--For the second straight day Rashard Mendenhall was a limited participant in practice and will be considered questionable for Sunday’s showdown with the Giants. Mendenhall missed last week’s game with the same Achilles’ injury and will need to improve over the new two days if he wants to play on Sunday. Isaac Redman (PIT)--The Steelers are hopeful that Isaac Redman will be in their backfield on Sunday after fully participating in practice on Thursday. Redman missed last week’s game with an ankle injury, but appears to be improving at a good pace. Jonathan Dwyer (PIT)--The Steelers may be without Jonathan Dwyer for this weekend’s game against the Giants after being limited in practice on Thursday. Dwyer suffered a quadriceps injury in last week’s win over the Redskins and will be considered questionable on the team’s official injury report. Marshawn Lynch (SEA)--The Seahawks have no doubt that Marshawn Lynch will play on Sunday, but he has been dealing with a back injury through the first half of the season. He was a full participant in practice on Thursday and should do the same over the next two days leading up to the team’s matchup with the Vikings. Wide Receivers Brandon LaFell (CAR)--Although Brandon LaFell has yet to practice this week, the Panthers are holding onto hope that he will be on the field on Sunday against the Redskins. LaFell suffered a concussion in last week’s loss to the Bears and will have to pass a few tests if he wants to play on Sunday. Alshon Jeffery (CHI)--The Bears held rookie Alshon Jeffery out of practice on Thursday and has already been ruled out for this weekend’s matchup with the Titans. 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)--The Cowboys are considering Dez Bryant questionable for this week’s game against the Falcons after he was unable to practice the last two days with he deals with a hip injury. If he doesn’t practice on Friday there is a chance he won’t play this week, so be sure to check his status after practice the next two days. Calvin Johnson (DET)--Despite being a missing practice on Thursday the Lions consider Calvin Johnson to be probable for this week’s game against the Jaguars. 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)--The Lions have limited Titus Young’s participation in practice the last two days as he deals with a knee injury but expect to have him on the field on Sunday against the Jaguars. Young has been dealing with the injury are a few weeks now, but it does not appear to be serious. Jordy Nelson (GB)--For the second day in a row Jordy Nelson did not practice and is considered questionable for this weekend’s game against the Cardinals. Nelson is suffering from a hamstring injury and if he doesn’t practice either Friday or Saturday don’t expect to see him take the field on Sunday. Greg Jennings (GB)-- The Packers have already ruled out Greg Jennings for this week’s game against the Cardinals while he continues to deal with a groin and abdomen injury. He underwent an abdominal surgery last week as well and is expected to be out another two weeks, so things continue to get worse for Jennings and his fantasy owners. Brian Hartline (MIA)--Despite being a limited participant in practice on Thursday the Dolphins expect to have Brian Hartline on the field on Sunday. Hartline is dealing with a groin injury, but the injury does not appear to be serious so in order for him not to play he would have to suffer a setback. Percy Harvin (MIN)--The Vikings expect to have Percy Harvin in action on Sunday despite the fact that he missed practice on Thursday. He is dealing with a hamstring injury, but the cause of him missing practice was not injury related so he should be fine to play this weekend when the Vikings take on the Seahawks. Victor Cruz (NYG)--The Giants will have Victor Cruz in the lineup on Sunday despite the fact that he is dealing with a calf injury. He was a full participant in practice on Thursday and will be listed as probable once the team releases their official injury report. Pierre Garcon (WAS)--As expected, Pierre Garcon has yet to practice this week and is consider doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Panthers. Garcon is dealing with a serious foot injury at this time and does not look to be on track to play anytime in the near future. Tight Ends Brandon Pettigrew (DET)--The Lions expect to have Brandon Pettigrew in their starting lineup on Sunday despite being a limited participant in practice on Thursday. Pettigrew is dealing with a minor knee injury but unless something drastic happens between now and Sunday he is going to be ready to play this weekend. Jermichael Finely (GB)--The Packers are being very cautious with Jermichael Finley and continued to limit his participation in practice on Thursday. Finley is dealing with a shoulder injury that he sustained a few weeks back, but he is expected to play Sunday against the Cardinals.   Owen Daniels (HOU)--Despite being a limited participant in practice on Thursday, the Texans believe they will have Owen Daniels on the field on Sunday when they take on the Bills. Daniels is dealing with a hamstring injury but coming off of a bye-week he should be ready to go.
