Bears buyers have run out, so it’s optimistic that Claypool is questionable after being limited in Friday’s practice. This was Claypool’s first practice since Week 13, so let’s see what the Bears decide with two weeks left of the season. Pettis was also limited on Friday, but Equanimeous St. Brown endorsed the concussion protocol.

Ragnow was limited to practice Friday for the Lions after missing practice earlier in the week. It will probably start. Jackson was added late to the injury report, so Craig Reynolds will be on guard duty as RB2 if Jackson doesn’t make it.

There’s no reason to be concerned with Lawrence, even though he’s limited to practice on Thursdays and Fridays. While the match didn’t affect the Jaguars’ chances of winning the AFC South, Lawrence should be good to go on Sunday. Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson was optimistic about Walker’s play this week.

Ogunbowale is ahead of Rex Burkhead as number 2 on the Texans offense with Dameon Pierce as a backup. If he doesn’t go, Burkhead will be number 2 behind Royce Freeman.

Olave has been limited for the Saints all week, so essentially playtime will be a decision. If Olave misses his second game in a row, the Saints will count on Rashid Shaheed, Tre’Quan Smith, Marquez Callaway and Kirk Merritt in the wide receiver. Lattimore has also been limited in practice all week, so he’s a player to watch on Sunday.

Hurts for the Eagles, gametime will be a decision as Friday’s practice is limited. The news that the Hurts are suspicious is a little discouraging for Sunday, but the Eagles could compete with Gardner Minshew for a second week in a row.

Jack and Ogunjobi were limited in Friday’s practice so we’ll see if they can try it on Sunday. The big name for the Steelers, who wasn’t given an injury description, was wide receiver Diontae Johnson (hip) as he was fully involved in Friday’s practice.

Again no Jackson for the Ravens this week, so Tyler Huntley will start first on the AFC North line against Pittsburgh. Jackson may not be available until the playoffs at that rate, but the Ravens’ Week 18 bets will tell the story. Jason Pierre-Paul and DeSean Jackson (disease) were not given injury definitions.
