This column is meant to offer our best predictions on what players will/will not play, as of 9 AM ET on Sunday. For the official active/inactive reports, please see our Latest NFL Player News.
We have what could be considered a normally sized late-season injury report for this stage of the season as the fantasy playoffs begin in many leagues, with running backs and receivers setting the pace in terms of position groups with the most concerns. There are a few notable names set to miss with their bumps and bruises and one notable Saturday COVID-19 list addition as well, while several other players are shedding that designation and returning to action. With plenty of news as early inactives approach, so let's dive into the latest as of early Sunday morning:
The Lions' Matthew Stafford (thumb) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Packers after practicing in limited fashion all week. Stafford originally suffered his injury on Thanksgiving against the Texans and played through it in a Week 13 win over the Bears, completing 27 of 42 passes for a season-high 402 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. As per late Saturday reports, the veteran signal-caller is expected to suit up against a Green Bay squad he threw for 244 yards and two touchdowns against in a 42-21 loss back in Week 2.
The Giants' Daniel Jones (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals but managed to work back to a full practice Friday
