This column is meant to offer our best predictions on what players will/will not play, as of 8 AM ET on Sunday. For the official active/inactive reports, please see our Latest NFL Player News.
We head into the final Sunday of November with another robust injury report that once again includes plenty of big names, but that's devoid of as much uncertainty as in previous weeks. We have definitive word on the status of several prominent Fantasy pieces, even if that news is not the type we may have been hoping for. There are some early Sunday morning updates on others with murkier outlooks, however, so without further ado, let's break down the latest:
The Patriots' Tom Brady (elbow) is officially questionable for Sunday's showdown with the Cowboys after turning in a limited practice Friday. However, as per Friday reports, Brady is fully expected to play versus Dallas and his limitations in the final prep session of the week had to do with managing some discomfort he's dealing with in his elbow. What limitations, if any, Brady might face remain to be seen, but there's been nothing to suggest downgrading the outlook for New England's skill position players. Rookie fourth-round pick Jarrett Stidham is Brady's primary backup, with Cody Kessler as the No. 3 option.
The Lions' Matthew Stafford (back) will not play in Sunday's Week 12 battle versus the Redskins after once again missing practice all week. Reports on a potential recovery timeline for Stafford's multiple fractures
