Rams RB Cam Akers (ankle) remains a game-time decision for today's tilt with the Rams, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Akers probably isn't anywhere close to 100% after suffering a high-ankle sprain just 2 weeks ago, but he might push through it for this win-and-in game. The issue is that we won't find out whether he's active until 3 pm ET today. Akers will be a shaky fantasy play if active, but his presence would obviously put a major dent in RB Malcolm Brown's projection.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Akers is "likely to try to play."

Lions QB Matt Stafford (rib, thumb, ankle) is expected to start tomorrow's game vs. the Vikings, "barring any overnight setbacks," according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Stafford is at risk of not making it through this game, so he's a shaky fantasy play. But whatever he can give Detroit is good news for RB D'Andre Swift, WR Marvin Jones and TE T.J. Hockenson. It also boosts the chances that this game shoots out.

Rams RBs Cam Akers (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Cardinals. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but it sounds like he’ll be a game-time decision for this win-and-in game for the Rams. RB Darrell Henderson (ankle) is out, so it’ll be RB Malcolm Brown in a workhorse role if Akers can’t go.

The Rams have ruled LB Micah Kiser (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. They activated him off IR earlier this week, but Kiser clearly isn't yet ready to play. He missed the entire week of practice. That keeps Troy Reeder as your top IDP option among Rams LBs. OLB Leonard Floyd is questionable for the game after sustaining an abdominal injury during the week. He missed Friday's practice after not being listed the previous 2 days. We'll check his status Sunday afternoon.

Lions QB Matt Stafford (rib, thumb) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Vikings. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. It sounds like Stafford has a real shot to start this one, despite Detroit having nothing to play for. We’ll find out whether he’s active around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp is out for Week 17 after testing positive for COVID, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We're expecting WR Robert Woods to play more snaps in the slot and get a boost in target share vs. the Cardinals. WRs Josh Reynolds and Van Jefferson should also get more playing time. Of course, the upside is capped on this passing game with QB John Wolford under center.

Lions QB Matt Stafford (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. "Sounds like he’s 50-50 whether he plays on his sprained ankle," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweets. We'll see if Stafford gets on the practice field the next 2 days in preparation for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson (ankle) has been placed on IR. So he's out for Week 17 and would also miss the Rams' first 2 playoff games. RB Cam Akers seems unlikely to play vs. the Cardinals this weekend due to his high-ankle sprain, so it'll be RB Malcolm Brown in a workhorse role.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp has been placed on the COVID list. We'll see whether he tested positive for the virus or if he was merely deemed a close contact. We'll also see if any of Los Angeles' other WRs land on the list. Stay tuned.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson is believed to have suffered a high-ankle sprain in yesterday's loss to the Seahawks and is considered unlikely to play vs. the Cardinals on Sunday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. RB Cam Akers suffered the same injury in Week 15 and isn't a good bet to be available this weekend. Look for RB Malcolm Brown to play something close to an every-down role vs. Arizona.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Lions QB Matthew Stafford's ankle injury "doesn't appear too serious." The issue was enough to keep Stafford out for the rest of Saturday's loss to the Buccaneers, but it seems like he'll be available for the finale against the Vikings. Even in a meaningless contest, we'd bet on Stafford playing if he's able. We'll see how the practice week goes for him.

Rams RB Darrell Henderson injured his left ankle in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Seahawks. We'll update his status when we know more. With RB Cam Akers inactive with his own ankle injury, the Rams are down to RB Malcolm Brown.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Jaguars. He tweaked that hammy in practice this week but was able to return to a limited practice on Friday. There’s a bit more risk here than usual, but Robinson remains a WR1 in the plus matchup.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) is expected to play vs. the Jaguars today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. A-Rob was added to the injury report and sidelined on Thursday but returned to a limited practice on Friday. There's some added risk here, but Robinson remains a WR1 in today's plus matchup.

Lions QB Matt Stafford was knocked out of Saturday's game vs. the Bucs with an ankle injury. Now dealing with right thumb, rib and ankle injuries, Stafford should call it a season. QB Chase Daniel figures to start next weekend's finale vs. the Vikings.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Jaguars. It looks like he hurt his hamstring in practice on Wednesday or Thursday. He was listed as a full-go Wednesday, was sidelined on Thursday and returned to a limited practice on Friday. Check back at noon ET on Sunday to see if he's active for Week 16.

Rams RB Cam Akers has a high-ankle sprain, HC Sean McVay said Monday. The rookie was surprisingly able to play through it in the loss to the Jets but will miss at least Week 16 vs. the Seahawks, McVay said. We wouldn't bet on him playing in Week 17, either, considering the injury. Akers' absence figures to put RB Darrell Henderson back in the lead ball-carrying role, with RB Malcolm Brown also taking on an expanded role.

5:12pm EST 12/20/20

Rams RB Cam Akers suffered an ankle injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Jets and is officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for an update.

Update: Akers returned in the 2nd quarter.

Lions QB Matthew Stafford (rib, thumb) is active for today’s game vs. the Titans. He’ll be playing through the previous right thumb injury, plus a rib-cartilage injury suffered last week. It leaves him as just a QB2, despite the plus matchup.

Lions QB Matt Stafford (rib) is now expected to start Sunday's game against the Titans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's a sweet matchup vs. the league's 31st-ranked QB defense. But Stafford will be playing through what's been described as a very painful rib-cartilage injury, adding risk to his Week 15 profile. We'd only consider him in 2-QB and superflex leagues. Stafford's availability is obviously good news for RB D'Andre Swift, WR Marvin Jones and TE T.J. Hockenson.
