A. Rodgers - QB
Interim coach Joe Philbin relayed that he's "hopeful" Rodgers (groin) will practice Wednesday and added that the Packers would take the full week to decide if the quarterback will play Sunday against the Jets, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Rodgers tweaked his groin late in the first half of the Week 15 loss to the Bears, but ultimately stayed in the contest and completed 25 of 42 attempts for 274 yards, no touchdowns and an interception, his first since Week 4. With the loss officially ending the Packers' bid for the playoffs, there's reason to think the team could exercise some caution with its star signal-caller for the final two games of the regular season. Philbin noted earlier in the week that Rodgers won't be automatically shut down, however, so if the 35-year-old is able to log some practice reps by Friday, there's a good chance he'll be under center this weekend.

R. Lewis - DB
Lewis (concussion) will not practice Wednesday.
Lewis missed the Week 15 win over Detroit with the lingering issue and he's running out of time to get in one more audition ahead of next season. In the meantime, it seems like fellow youngster Levi Wallace has passed him on the cornerback depth chart, perhaps permanently.

L. McCoy - RB
Coach Sean McDermott said McCoy (hamstring) is in a "pretty good spot" but the Bills will have to see how he does in practice Wednesday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
McCoy seemed close to playing in Week 15, but the out-of-contention Bills chose to play it safe and give some younger players looks in the running game. This is Patriots week, however, and there may be more impetus to at least see how the young team stacks up against a stronger division rival. That said, Shady would have to get through the practice week unfettered before he's a surer bet to play.

J. Lambo - K
Lambo (groin) isn't expected to participate in Wednesday's practice.
The right groin injury forced Lambo's first absence of the season in the Jaguars' Week 15 loss to the Redskins, resulting in the newly signed Kai Forbath handling the kicking duties. Lambo's absence from practice to begin Week 16 preparations isn't a good sign for his early outlook for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, but he'll have two more opportunities to prove his health.

L. Fournette - RB
Fournette (foot) is expected to practice in some capacity Wednesday.
The release of the Jaguars' first injury report of Week 16 will reveal whether Fournette's foot issue renders him a limited or full participant. Even if his reps are capped Wednesday, the fact that Fournette is merely on the field is a positive sign after the injury resulted in the Jaguars' lead back taking on a more muted role than usual (11 carries for 46 yards, three receptions for 18 yards) in the Week 15 loss to the Redskins. He should be ready to go for this weekend's matchup with the Dolphins and could reclaim a heightened workload if he makes it through the next couple of practices without incident.

C. Latimer - WR
The Giants activated Latimer (hamstring) off injured reserve Wednesday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.
Latimer had served as the Giants' primary No. 3 receiver through the first six weeks of 2018 before being shut down after suffering the hamstring injury Oct. 16. The 26-year-old only tallied six receptions for 108 yards over his four appearances, but he could assume an enhanced role on offense Sunday against the Colts with fellow wideouts Odell Beckham (quadriceps) and Russell Shepard (ankle) uncertain to play. Latimer should also take over as the gunner on the team's kick-coverage units after cornerback Antonio Hamilton (quadriceps) was moved to IR in a corresponding move.

D. Freeman - RB
Coach Dan Quinn confirmed Wednesday that Freeman (groin) wouldn't be activated from injured reserve ahead of either of the Falcons' final two games of 2018, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.
With the 5-9 Falcons officially eliminated from playoff contention, there wouldn't be much upside to bringing Freeman back after an extended absence following surgery to address a core-muscle injury. Freeman, who had also been dealing with a foot injury prior to being shut down, will likely be back to full strength for OTAs and should have a clear path to the lead-back role in 2019 with impending free agent Tevin Coleman unlikely to be retained. Coleman should at least dominate the backfield snaps for the Falcons' last two games after the team elected to place his top complement, rookie Ito Smith (knee), on IR earlier this week.

M. Gallup - WR
Gallup failed to see a target in Sunday's loss to the Colts.
The goose egg comes one game after the rookie saw a season-high nine targets against the Eagles, although he was only able to turn them into four catches for 24 yards. Gallup has shown flashes of his upside this season, but for the most part he's struggled with his consistency and has yet to develop strong chemistry with Dak Prescott. Look for significant improvement from the young receiver in 2019, especially with Amari Cooper remaining the focus of attention for opposition secondaries.
