Seahawks RB Chris Carson has been placed on IR with his neck injury. He's out for at least the next 3 games. Seattle has a Week 9 bye, so Week 10 is the earliest we could see Carson back on the field. It's unclear if he'll even be ready then. Carson is certainly droppable if you're hard up for a roster spot. Alex Collins will serve as the Seahawks' lead back the next 3 weeks vs. the Steelers, Saints and Jaguars.

The Seahawks placed QB Russell Wilson (finger) on IR. That knocks him out for at least the next 3 games. Seattle then has a Week 9 bye, so Week 10 is the earliest Wilson could return. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport recently called a Week 10 return the "best-case scenario" for Wilson. QB Geno Smith is in line to start the next 3 games vs. Pittsburgh, New Orleans and Jacksonville.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf (foot) is not listed on the final injury report. He was limited on Wednesday, sidelined on Thursday and then limited again on Friday. Metcalf should be ready to play his usual role in Sunday night's game vs. the Steelers.

Browns DE Myles Garrett (knee, ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He was questionable last week for the same issues and played. Garrett finished the week with a limited Friday practice -- an improvement over last week, when he sat out Friday. DE Jadeveon Clowney (elbow, knee) is also questionable. He missed last week's game. CB Denzel Ward (neck) and CB Greg Newsome (calf) are questionable as well. LB Malcolm Smith has been ruled out. We'll update statuses for the questionable defenders come Sunday afternoon. Plan on using Garrett as usual in IDP lineups. You can probably find better options than the risk of waiting on the others.

Cardinals LB Jordan Hicks (toe) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns. He managed just a limited Friday practice after missing Wednesday and Thursday. We'll see about his status Sunday, but the 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff might mean you can't wait for him. If Hicks sits, then rookie Zaven Collins would likely get his 1st starting turn. Arizona CBs Byron Murphy (ribs) and Marco Wilson (ribs) are also questionable.

Broncos RB Melvin Gordon (hip) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Raiders after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. We haven’t heard anything to suggest that he’s in danger of missing this one, but his status is worth checking on Sunday morning.

Washington LB Cole Holcomb finished the week with no injury status for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He opened with limited Wednesday and Thursday practices because of a shoulder injury. But Holcomb put in a full Friday workout and should be ready for a solid IDP scoring matchup.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (illness) isn't listed on the final injury report. He was sidelined on Wednesday and Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. Hopkins should be ready for his usual role in Sunday's game vs. the Browns.

Chargers RB Justin Jackson (groin) isn't listed on the final injury report and will return for Sunday's game vs. the Ravens. He figures to pick up a few touches behind RB Austin Ekeler.

The Chiefs have ruled DL Chris Jones (wrist) and CB Charvarius Ward (quad) out for Sunday's game at Washington. LB Anthony Hitchens (knee) is questionable. He finished the week with a full Friday workout, though. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

The Cowboys list RB Ezekiel Elliott (ribs) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots. He was limited in practice all week. Zeke played through this injury last week and is fully expected to play on Sunday.

Giants WRs Sterling Shepard (hamstring), Kadarius Toney (ankle) and Darius Slayton (hamstring) were limited in practice all week. Shepard was left off the final injury report, while Toney and Slayton are listed as questionable. All 3 guys are expected to play vs. the Rams on Sunday, but it looks like Shepard is healthiest. WR Kenny Golladay (knee) is out.

Broncos S Kareem Jackson (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. We'll check his status Sunday afternoon.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (shoulder) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Browns. Edmonds played through this injury last week but tallied a season-low 6 carries and matched a season low with 4 targets. He’s a risky Week 6 fantasy play.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt (wrist, knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Cardinals. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, although we haven't heard any concern about his status. Assuming those injuries aren't a limiting factor on Sunday, Hunt should get workhorse usage with RB Nick Chubb out.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers. Mack missed practice all week, a step down from last week, when he put in a limited Friday workout. Mack played through that questionable tag, though, and has done so multiple times this season. Also questionable for the Bears defense are: DL Akiem Hicks (groin), CB Duke Shelley (ankle) and S Eddie Jackson (knee). We'll update the statuses for all 4 on Sunday morning.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (ribs) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Cowboys. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. Besides the rib injury, Harris also lost a goal-line fumble last week. It all has his Week 6 role a bit uncertain. If Harris doesn't play on Sunday, rookie Rhamondre Stevenson would be the favorite for lead-back duties.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Rams. We’ll see if he can make it back for Week 7. Devontae Booker should dominate backfield work this weekend and is a volume-based RB2 in fantasy lineups.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (concussion) isn't listed on the final injury report. He's been cleared to start Sunday's game vs. the Rams. Jones finished as a top 12 fantasy QB in 3 of the season's first 4 weeks and is back in the low-end QB1 discussion for Week 6.

Lions DE Trey Flowers (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. He put in limited practices all week. We'll check his status Sunday morning.
