Andre Ellington Headshot

Ellington (quadriceps) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Rams in London, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

With the Cardinals' bye on tap in Week 8, Ellington will be handed three whole weeks to recover from his bout with an injured quad. None of the team's other running backs are accomplished pass catchers, meaning Adrian Peterson should only leave the field in order to get the occasional breather from Kerwynn Williams and Elijhaa Penny.
11:45 am (EST)
Jameis Winston Headshot

Winston (shoulder) is active for Sunday's Week 7 battle against the Bills, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

The status is fully expected, given that head coach Dirk Koetter had anointed Winston as his Week 7 starter following a successful practice Friday. Despite the AC joint sprain currently plaguing him residing in his throwing shoulder, Winston apparently will not face any limitations Sunday, outside of a generally unfavorable matchup against a solid Bills secondary, that is.
11:45 am (EST)
Kenny Britt Headshot

Britt (groin/knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Britt, who had missed the Browns' previous two games due to injury, was limited in practices throughout the week, but proved healthy enough for the team to sign off on his return to action. However, while he was sidelined with the injuries in the Week 6 loss to the Texans, Britt drew the Browns' ire after missing a curfew with fellow injured wideout Corey Coleman (hand), resulting in the team sending both players home early from Houston, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network. Britt, who has had numerous off-field issues during his career, could be at risk of losing his roster spot if he has any further transgressions before the season ends.
11:44 am (EST)
DeMarco Murray Headshot

Murray (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Browns, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Murray, who returned to a limited practice Friday will give it a go Sunday, but it remains to be seen how heavily the Titans will utilize him, with Derrick Henry coming off a big game in Week 6. With the Titans on bye in Week 8, it's not hard to imagine the team using Murray judiciously this weekend against the 0-6 Browns, an approach made more plausible by the presence of the capable Henry.
11:44 am (EST)
Mackensie Alexander Headshot

Alexander (hip) is inactive for Sunday's tilt against Baltimore.

Alexander was limited in practice throughout the week and was considered a toss-up prior to Sunday's game. Look for Terence Newman to see some extra snaps with Alexander out.
11:44 am (EST)
Mike Wallace Headshot

Wallace (back) is active for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

The Ravens are missing three receivers -- Jeremy Maclin (shoulder), Breshad Perriman (concussion) and Chris Matthews (thigh) -- in Week 7, but Wallace will be able to take the field despite dealing with an injury of his own that limited him in practice this week. Wallace will reprise his usual starting role and shouldn't see a restricted snap count due to the lack of alternatives available, which could make him a worthy lineup cog in deeper season-long leagues.
11:43 am (EST)
Charles Johnson Headshot

Johnson (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Johnson was listed on Friday's injury report with a groin injury, but he was able to practice without limitations. He's slated to start at defensive end per usual, though Julius Peppers figures to see his share of snaps as well.
11:43 am (EST)
Jeremy Maclin Headshot

Maclin (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

One of four Ravens receivers listed on the team's injury report this week, Maclin was expected to return from a one-game absence, but after he tested his shoulder in warmups, the wideout wasn't deemed healthy enough to give it a go. With Maclin, Breshad Perriman (concussion) and Chris Matthews (thigh) all inactive, the Ravens will have a skeleton crew at wideout led by Mike Wallace, who is dealing with a back injury of his own that rendered him questionable heading into Sunday. The Ravens believe that Maclin will be able to return to the field for a quick turnaround Thursday against the Dolphins in Week 8.
11:42 am (EST)
Willie Snead Headshot

Snead (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's Week 7 tilt against the Packers.

The designation comes as little surprise, as whispers of Snead's inability to suit up were heard earlier Sunday. The speedster's absence bumps up the prospects of Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn, Jr. and Brandon Coleman in what should be competitive matchup against the Packers despite the absence of Aaron Rodgers (collarbone).
11:42 am (EST)
Michael Floyd Headshot

Floyd (hamstring) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Ravens.

The Vikings' decision comes on the heels of only one practice this week in which Floyd managed no more than individual drills. Floyd will join Stefon Diggs (groin) in street clothes, leaving Adam Thielen, Laquon Treadwell and Jarius Wright as the primary options at wide receiver.
