1 p.m. ET games


Trevor Siemian, QB, CHI: Oblique — OUT/IR
Impact: It’s a good thing that Justin Fields appears to be ready to return this week. Nathan Peterman will back him up.

David Njoku, TE, CLE: Knee — OUT
Impact: Harrison Bryant becomes an interesting TE option.

KJ Hamler, WR, DEN: Hamstring — OUT/IR
Impact: Kendall Hinton could see some extra targets…

Courtland Sutton, WR, DEN: Illness — Questionable
Impact: … as could Jalen Virgil or Montrell Washington, if Sutton takes a turn for the worse.

Jerry Jeudy, WR, DEN: Ankle — Questionable
Impact: Barring a pre-game setback, Jeudy is currently expected to give it a go.

Romeo Doubs, WR, GB: Ankle — Questionable
Impact: While he could eat into Christian Watson‘s and Allen Lazard‘s numbers, the more the merrier for the Packers’ passing attack.

Rex Burkhead, RB, HOU: Concussion — Questionable
Impact: He should be able to clear the league’s protocol by the time this game kicks off.

Brandin Cooks, WR, HOU: Calf — OUT
Impact: It’s “The Nico Collins Show” in Houston.

Travis Etienne Jr., RB, JAX: Foot — Questionable
Impact: All signs point to a full workload for the Jaguars’ No. 1 RB option.

Darrell Henderson Jr., RB, JAX: Illness — Questionable

Impact: Marcus Johnson and Isaiah Hodgins are on standby.

Darius Slayton, WR, NYG: Illness — Questionable

Michael Carter, RB, NYJ: Ankle — Doubtful
Impact: The surprise ascendancy of Zonovan Knight continues, with Ty Johnson in tow.

Impact: Joshua Palmer keeps his flex candidacy alive for yet another week.

Impact: John Wolford gets another chance to start, but expect Bryce Perkins to also play at least a little bit.

Lance McCutcheon, WR, LAR: Shoulder — OUT
Impact: Tutu Atwell emerges a “last-ditch dart throw” kind of flex option.

Brandon Bolden, RB, LV: Calf — Questionable
Impact: … with Ameer Abdullah also in the mix for touches.
