NFL Week 14 kicked off Thursday with the Raiders and Rams and now we’re full steam ahead towards the Sunday slate. Unlike the past few weeks, we have several goodbye clubs — Falcons, Bear, Packers, Foals, Saints and Commanders. While missing some of the teams, this list is loaded with games that will have direct impacts on the playoff picture in both conferences, thanks to six divisional games. With that in mind, you won’t want to miss a second.
Of course, with a new week of games comes a new collection of injuries that we need to track. As teams wrap up the week of training, they’ve released their final injury reports and rolled out game statuses for Week 14. Below, you can find each of those reports and a breakdown of some of the biggest ones. wounds.

New York is largely healthy heading into Week 14, despite an illness that has spanned the locker room and seen a number of players miss time over the week, including Corey Davis, George Fant and DJ Reed. However, they were all back in training as full participants on Friday, so they look set to take part in this AFC East fixture.
The Bills saw Milano practice for the first time this week on a limited basis on Friday, raising hopes he’ll be able to play despite his knee injury. Meanwhile, Dawkins was a full participant in Friday’s practice, which is trending favorably for Week 14 despite his questionable tag. Fellow offensive lineman David Quessenberry (ankle) has no injury designations after training hard Friday.
Cleveland should be fully healthy heading into Week 14. Cooper injured his hip in practice Thursday and did not compete Friday, but is officially active. Head coach Kevin Stefanski told reporters the team had to “take this over the next few days and see where it lands.” The Browns are also expected to see the return of tight end David Njoku after missing last week with a knee injury.
Cincinnati is set to bring running back Joe Mixon back into the fold this week after training hard and does not carry an injury designation for Week 14. Mixon had previously missed time with a concussion cerebral. Although the Bengals are reinserting Mixon into the roster, they won’t have Hurst, who was ruled out with a calf injury that forced him to miss all week of practice.
The Texans again lost multiple receivers in Sunday’s game as Collins and Cooks will miss this week. Houston’s top receivers will be Phillip Dorsett and Chris Moore. For a team struggling on offense, the top two absentee receivers are less than ideal.
For the Cowboys, Kelvin Joseph is in line to secure Brown’s departure. Jayron Kearse (shoulder) and DeMarcus Lawrence (foot) did not receive injury designations.
Darrisaw missed the previous two games with a concussion but practiced all week. Still, he will miss Sunday’s game against Detroit.
If the Lions beat Brown and Awosika this week, they’ll be thin on guard again. Logan Stenberg will be in line to start at right guard.
The Jaguars saw Lawrence practice for the first time this week on Friday, and he is active on Sunday. Due to a toe injury, he was a limited participant in the Jags’ final practice. One of his best receivers, Zay Jones, is active.
The Titans will lose Burks and Board on Sunday, leaving them thin at wide receiver. Robert Woods and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine are the top two receivers, while Cody Hollister is No. 3. In good news for the Titans, star defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons is active.
Bradley is the Eagles’ only injury this week. One of the key special teams players, look for Christian Elliss to earn promotion to the practice squad this weekend.
Head coach Brian Daboll told reporters on Friday that Saquon Barkley’s neck was “a bit sore”, but confirmed on Sunday that RB would play.
The Ravens have officially classified Jackson as questionable after not practicing all week due to a knee injury he suffered against Denver last week. Head coach John Harbaugh told reporters on Friday that “it looks like it will be Tyler [Huntley]’ starting, and it is. JK Dobbins is also active after sitting out the last six games with a knee problem.
Pittsburgh’s injury report is clear after the Steelers withdrew the designations of TJ Watt (rib), Diontae Johnson (hip) and Malik Reed (back).
Thuney and Toney are questionable for the Chiefs, but head coach Andy Reid has been optimistic and both will play this week. Toney was “moving pretty well” and Thuney “felt better” the past few days.
For the Broncos, Risner did not practice Wednesday and Thursday with shoulder and back injuries — but was limited Friday. It will be a game-time decision. The return of Jerry Jeudy (ankle) as a primary target will be huge for Russell Wilson. Kendall Hinton will be No. 2.
Fournette didn’t practice Friday for the Buccaneers, which may predict his status for Sunday. Winfield and Wirfs haven’t practiced all week.
Whether Bosa plays for the 49ers on Sunday is up in the air. Head coach Kyle Shanahan hopes Bosa can go even though he hasn’t practiced all week. Remember, the 49ers face a short week with a Thursday game coming up. Christian McCaffrey (knee) did not receive an injury designation.
Carolina is as healthy as a team could hope to come out of the bye because they didn’t have to rule out any players for Sunday’s game in Seattle on Friday. Only four players were listed on the final injury report and all are designated as questionable and were either limited or full participants in Friday training. For Littleton, it was his first practice of the week after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. His limited participation gives him some hope of playing in Week 14.
The Seahawks could lose their top two skill position players in Metcalf and Walker for Sunday. Metcalf was limited Thursday and didn’t practice Friday, but Seattle is giving him a few days to rest from a mysterious hip injury that appeared in the injury report this week. As Metcalf appears to be playing on Sunday, head coach Pete Carroll said Walker and Dallas are in “wait and see” mode – as both are real game time decisions, although both are apparently we don’t expect to play. Travis Homer will be ready as the No. 1 back.
Armstead tends to play for the Dolphins after being restricted to Friday practice. The star left tackle was inactive last week after being a game-time decider with a pectoral injury. Head coach Mike McDaniel says he “feels good” that Armstead can play.
The best news for the Chargers is that Mike Williams (ankle) hasn’t received an injury designation, so he’s ready for Sunday. Los Angeles has been sick with the injury bug all year – and Sunday will remain the same. James, Joseph-Day, Callahan and Pipkins are also doubts for Sunday’s game – that’s four starters.
With Myers out, expect a bigger role on Monday night for Kendrick Bourne — who caught just 19 passes in the first 11 games of the season. Conor McDermott, a six-year veteran with 44 regular-season games under his belt, is expected to replace Wynn in the starting lineup. Fourth-round rookie pick Jack Jones is expected to fill Mills’ starting spot on the defensive end. Jones has two interceptions this season, including a six pick in New England’s Week 4 loss to the Packers.
DeAndre Hopkins will play after missing practice on Thursday due to illness. The former All-Pro caught 49 passes for 574 yards and three touchdowns in six games this season.
