Quarterbacks Andrew Luck (IND)–The Colts will be with the services of Andrew Luck on Sunday after he was a full participant in practice this week. Luck has been dealing with a minor knee injury for the last few weeks, but it is not serious enough for fantasy owners to worry about it. Carson Palmer (OAK)--The Raiders have already ruled out Carson Palmer for Sunday's game against the Chargers after being forced ot of last week's game. Palmer is dealing with a rib injury and it is not worth it for the Raiders to force him out there and make the injury worse in a meaingless game. Robert Griffin (WAS)–The Redskins will have the services of Robert Griffin on Sunday after fully participating in practice all week. Griffin missed the Redksins Week 15 game with a knee injury, but appears to have rested it enough to give it a go when the Redksins take on the Cowboys Sunday. Running Backs C.J. Spiller (BUF)–After fully participating in practice on Thursday, the Bills will likely listed C.J. Spiller as probable for this weekend’s game against the Jets. Spiller is still dealing with a shoulder injury he sustained in the early weeks of the season, but it does not appear to be anything to worry about if you are a fantasy owner. Jonathan Stewart (CAR)–The Panthers will likely be without the services of Jonathan Stewart on Sunday after he sustained a high ankle sprain in Week 12 against the Eagles.  This type of injury usually takes at least a month to clear up, so don’t expect to see him in action any time soon. BenJarvus Green-Ellis (CIN)--The Bengals will likely list BenJarvus Green-Ellis as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens after failing to practice this week. Green-Ellis is dealing with an illness, so despite being questionable, as long as he is feeling better by Sunday he will be out there. Trent Richardson (CLE)–The Browns will likely list Trent Richardson as questionable for Sunday's game after failing to practice all week. Richardson is dealing with an ankle injury he sustained last week, and there is no reason for the Browns to rush him back for a meaningless game. Felix Jones (DAL)–The Cowboys expect to have the services of Felix Jones on Sunday after being a full participant in practice on Thursday. Jones has been dealing with a knee injury but it does not appear to be anything owners need to worry about at this time. DeMarco Murray (DAL)–After fully particiapting in practice all week, the Cowboys consider DeMarco Murray probable from Sunday’s game against the Redskins. Murray has looked good since returning to the starting lineup, and appears to finally be over the foot injury. Knowshon Moreno (DEN)–After fully participating in practice this week, the Broncos with have the services of Knowshon Moreno when they take on the Chiefs. Moreno is dealing with a minor rib injury, but it does not appear to be anyhitng fantasy owners should worry about. James Starks (GB)–The Packers will be without the services of James Starks this weekend when they take on the Vikings. Starks suffered a knee injury in a Week 13  win over the Vikings and will likely be out for the rest of the season. Ben Tate (HOU)–After fully participating in practice on Thursday, the Texans consider Ben Tate probable for Sunday’s game against the Colts. Tate has played the last four weeks, but was not involved in the offense, but now in his fifth game he should see an increased workload. Maurice Jones-Drew (JAC)–As expected, Maurice Jones-Drew has yet to practice this week making him doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Titans. Jones-Drew is still dealing with a foot injury that has held him out for a month now, but reports indicate that he is getting closer to a return. Adrian Peterson (MIN)–The Vikings will be with the services of Adrian Peterson for Week 17 despite missing practice on Thursday. His reason for missing practice was an abdominal and groin injuries, but that won’t be enough to keep him from suiting up for his game against the Packers on Sunday. Ahmad Bradshaw (NYG)–Despite the fact that he has yet to practice this week, the Giants are hopeful that Ahmad Bradshaw will be able to play on Sunday.  Bradshaw is dealing with knee and foot injuries and should suit up, but his touches may be limited. Frank Gore (SF)–After fully participating in practice on Thursday it appears Frank Gore will be ready to go for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. Gore is dealing with a lingering knee injury, but it does not appear to be serious at this point. Steven Jackson (STL)–The Rams are hopeful that they will have Steven Jackson on Sunday when they take on the Seahawks. Jackson is dealing with a foot injury, but at this point it does not appear to be anything that owners should be worried about for the sesaon finale. Wide Receivers Roddy White (ATL)–Despite not practicing all week, the Falcons will likely consider Roddy White probable for Week 17 against the Buccaneers. If White plays, there is a chance it will be in limited fashion, considering the team has nothing to play for, so use with caution. Anquan Boldin (BAL)--The Ravens expect to have Anquan Boldin for Sunday's showdown with the Bengals despite being limited in practice this week. Boldin is dealing with a shoulder injury, and at this point it does not appear to be anything serious. Brandon LaFell (CAR)–After fully participating in practice all week, Brandon LaFell will likely be listed as probable for Sunday’s game against the Saints. LaFell injured his toe in a Week 13 loss to the Chiefs and it has yet to get better, so be sure to monitor his situation the next two days. Dez Bryant (DAL)–The Cowboys expect to have the services of Dez Bryant on Sunday despite suffering a broken finger in the Cowobys Week 14 win over the Bengals. Bryant has been a full participant in practicea all week, and has decided to try and play through the pain, pushing off surgery for as long as possible. Calvin Johnson (DET)–After being a limited participant in practice this week, the Lions will likely list Calvin Johnson as questionable for this week’s game against the Bears. Johnson is dealing with a lingering knee injury, but it is not serious enough for him to miss any time. Randall Cobb (GB)--After failing to practice all week, there is a good chance that Randall Cobb will be out for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Cobb suffered both knee and ankle injuries last week, and will need to rest up for the playoffs, so don't be surpirsed if he is ruled out prior to kickoff. Jordy Nelson (GB)–After fully participating in practice this week, the Packers will likely list Jordy Nelson as probable when the team releases it’s official injury report. Nelson suffered a hamstring injury during Pakcer’s Week 14 win over the Lions and was unable to return to action, but he appears to have taken steps forward in his recovery over the last few weeks. Wes Welker (NE)–Despite being limited in practice this week, the Patriots consider Wes Welker probable for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. Welker is dealing with a lingering ankle injury, but it does not appear to be serious enough to keep him out of the lineup. Hakeem Nicks (NYG)–Despite being a limited participant in practice on Thursday, the Giants expect to have the services of Hakeem Nicks when they take on the Eagles. Nicks has been bothered by a knee injury for most of the season, but he has shown the ability to play through the pain, so expect him out there come Sunday. Jeremy Maclin (PHI)--The Eagles are hopeful that Jeremy Maclin will be able to play in Sunday's game against the Giants, but he has yet to practice this week. Maclins is dealing with a knee injury and will need to practice Friday if he want to suit up in the season finale. Mike Wallace (PIT)--After failing to practice this week, Mike Wallace will iekly be out for the Steelers in Sunday's game against the Browns. Wallace suffered a hip injury in last week's game and there is no reason for the Steelers to rush him back considering the game in meaningless. Sidney Rice (SEA)–The Seahawks will likely list Sidney Rice as probable on their official injury report this week after fully particiapting in practice this week. Rice is dealing with a foot injury and at this point it appears he has moved past the worst part of the recovery and is ready to go. Tight Ends Dennis Pitta (BAL)--The Ravens expect to have Dennis Pitta for Sunday's game against the Bengals after he was able to practice fully all week. Pitta is dealing with a knee inury, and at this point it does not appear to be anyhting owners should worry about. Brandon Pettigrew (DET)–After failing to practice all week, the Lions will likely list Brandon Pettigrew as questionable for this week’s game against the Bears. He suffered an ankle injury in the Lions Week 14 loss to the Packers and if he doesn’t practice on Friday don’t expect to see him out there in Week 17. Rob Gronkowski (NE)–After participating in practice in a limited basis this week, there is a chance Rob Gronkowski suits up for the Patriots on Sunday. Gronkowski has miss over a month of the season after breaking his forearm, but appear to be on track to return, if the Patriots think he is back at 100 percent. Aaron Hernandez (NE)–Despite being a limited participant in practice on Thursday, Aaron Hernandez will likely be listed as probable for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. Hernandez has been dealing with an ankle injury for most of the season so it is not a surprise he was limited. Vernon Davis (SF)--After being a limited participant in practice this week, the Niners will likely list Vernon davis as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Davis suffered a concussion in last week's loss to the Seahawks and will need to be cleared by team doctors in order to play.
