The Saints will be understaffed, at least at some capacity. The biggest absence will likely come in the center, where Winston is recovering more slowly than expected from lingering problems.

The Vikings are much healthier and star running back Dalvin Cooke (Shoulders) is off the report after returning to full practice. Starting defenders Eric Kendricks (toes) and Harrison Smith (concussion) are ready too.

Allen didn’t practice on Friday and was ruled out for the third straight game. Justin Herbert (ribs) is a full entrant and JC Jackson (ankle) will play for the Chargers on Sunday.

Garrett, the Browns’ top edge rusher, is still recovering from injuries sustained in a car accident earlier this week. I said yes.

If Patterson can’t go to the Falcons, Arthur Smith’s team will likely turn to backup Tyler Allgaier and Avery Williams.

The Seahawks are relatively healthy heading into this. Rookie Kobe Bryant is set to start his third straight game in the slot with Coleman in doubt whether he will play.

Jared Goff lacks some of his best weapons at home, Jamal Williams is set to take on RB1 duties, and tight end TJ Hockenson is also looking for some extra looks in the passing game.

Giants Bears (-3)

New York’s receiving team will once again be without 2021 first-round pick Tony, who didn’t make an appearance in Week 3. Cowboys last week.

The Bears will also lose some top players. Khalil Herbert was slated to start running back with Montgomery at his side, and in Johnson’s absence, Chicago lost its number one coverman.

The Commanders are battered by an offensive line that gave up the most sacks in the NFL this season. Leno is dealing with this shoulder injury and is restricted on Friday.If he can’t go, Cornelius Lucas will start at left tackle. Nick Martin started in center, Schweitzer out. He is his third starting center in his four games for Washington. Right tackle Sam Kosumi (knee) will play.

Michael Gallup (knee) returns to the Cowboys to make his season debut after being undesignated for an injury. Dak Prescott (ankle) has yet to throw, so he is out and the Cooper Rush is started. Dalton Schultz is in a situation of uncertainty as to whether he will play after being restricted on Friday.

Hooker will miss Sunday’s game after failing to clear the league’s concussion protocol in time. The Titans are lean in the secondary with all injuries leading to slot McCreary and outside cornerback Christian Fulton. Tralon Burks will fit wide receiver after taking sick leave from practice earlier in the week.

Against Derrick, Henry & Co, the Colts’ defense could be without some key starters if Buckner doesn’t fit. The star’s interior defender didn’t practice leading up to the game. Leonard, meanwhile, could make his linebacker debut in 2022 after missing the first three games while recovering from back surgery. , coach Frank Reich revealed that it’s not 100% either way.

The biggest news here is the exclusion of Zach Wilson from the Jets report. This is because the QB is completely free from the knee surgery that kept him out in his first three games.

The Steelers got good news that Minka Fitzpatrick has cleared concussion protocol, so he’ll play Sunday.

The Cardinals, who are missing DeAndre Hopkins due to suspension, may be aiming for the bottom of the receiver depth chart this year. With Green out and both Brown and Moore banged, reserve Greg Dorch got to see another barrage of targets from Kyler Murray, along with tight end Zach Aerts. Running back James Conner (knee) is also good.

Baker Mayfield will have a strong supporting cast at best, and McCaffrey “wants” to play despite practicing in a limited manner only once this week. Chenault, who appeared in the week, is a gametime decision.

Jones cleared concussion protocol, so he’s eligible to play on Sunday. Meinerz fell behind in practice and was ruled out for Sunday. The Broncos also play Thursday night, so it might have been wise to give him a few extra days.

With the Raiders’ Renfrow absent again, Mack Hollins will take over as No. 2 wide receiver for another week. Ya-Sin’s practice is limited and his status will be determined after Saturday’s walkthrough. Denzel Perryman has been sidelined this week with his ankle injury, but he will play.

Despite Mac Jones’ attendance at practice Friday, the second-year quarterback is ruled out and veteran backup Brian Hoyer will start.

David Bakhtiari (knee) and AJ Dillon (knee) have not been declared injured. They play for the Packers on Sunday. So do Elgton Jenkins (knee) and Allen Lazard (ankle).

Butker got a “wait and see” from Andy Reed regarding his playing status on Sunday. He is the match time decision. Valdez’s scantling was limited in Friday’s practice, but so was Mekor He Hardman, who was not given injury designation. Skyy Moore may get more snaps this week.

For the Buccaneers, Tom Brady could lose many top targets again. The Buccaneers’ top three receivers could be Evans, Cole Beasley, and Scotty Miller, as Perryman is suspicious. Jones is expected to be included in the pitched count if the play is allowed.

Stay tuned for analysis.
