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.
The injury report is once again a star-studded affair in Week 6, much to the chagrin of fantasy owners. While several key pieces do stand a good chance of shedding their injury designations when inactives are officially announced, multiple prominent running backs will either be out of uniform altogether or limited Sunday. With plenty to sort through as usual, let's dive right into the Week 6 medical outlook as of early Sunday morning:
The Texans' Deshaun Watson (chest) is questionable to face the Bills after a trio of limited practices this week. Watson took several hard hits against the Cowboys in Week 5 that led to his current status, but as per early Sunday morning reports, he's expected to suit up and play without limitations against Buffalo. Veteran Brandon Weeden is Watson's backup.
The Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's home game against the Bears despite having put in full sessions in two of three practices this week. All indications appear to be that Tannehill will take the field without limitations. Brock Osweiler would be next in line under center in Miami if Tannehill were to suffer a setback.
