Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back-out) isn’t practicing and won’t play for several weeks. QB Dak Prescott will make his NFL debut in a good matchup vs. the Giants.
Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (right shoulder) was upgraded to full and will be all systems go for the Lions.
Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee-out) isn’t practicing and won’t play for a while. RB Justin Forsett is expected to lead their RBBC vs. Buffalo.
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (calf-questionable) was limited for a third day but is expected to join T.J. Yeldon in their new RBBC vs. Green Bay with regular touches.

Miami Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi (not injury related-out) didn’t travel with the team and won’t play in Seattle. RB Arian Foster will see a big load against the Seahawks’ defense.
Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (foot-questionable) was only upgraded to limited practice and is iffy for Tennessee. If he can’t go, Matt Asiata would be the top backup to Adrian Peterson against the Titans.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (knee) was upgraded to full practice over two days and is a full go for Tampa Bay.
Chicago Bears WR Kevin White (hamstring-questionable) was added to the injury report late in the week as limited. There’s a good chance he misses Houston, with WR Alshon Jeffery dominating targets.

New England Patriots LT Nate Solder (hamstring-questionable) and RG Jonathan Cooper (foot-questionable) were both limited for a third day and are set to miss Arizona and leave them very thin against a good Cardinals front.
New Orleans Saints LT Terron Armstead (knee/quadriceps-questionable) remained limited but is expected to play against Oakland to protect QB Drew Brees’ blind side.
Seattle Seahawks RG Germain Ifedi (ankle-questionable) was held out of practice and likely won’t play. His absence hurts their run blocking a little vs. Miami.
Atlanta Falcons DE Adrian Clayborn (shoulder) was upgraded to full and will be in there for Tampa Bay. FANTASY SPIN: It’s still a good spot for QB Jameis Winston.
Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) is no longer limited and will be a full go against Chicago. FANTASY SPIN: With him leading Houston in wreaking havoc at home, it’s a tough spot for anything in the Bears’ offense this week.
Indianapolis Colts DE Kendall Langford (knee) remained limited but will play. DT Henry Anderson (knee-out) remained limited and won’t play. FANTASY SPIN: This is a boost to the Lions’ limited running game.

Atlanta Falcons S Keanu Neal (knee-out) isn’t practicing and won’t play for a while. FANTASY SPIN: It’s a very good matchup for Buccaneers RB Doug Martin and their tight ends this week.
Chicago Bears CB Kyle Fuller (knee-questionable) was limited for a third day and is now iffy to play against Houston. FANTASY SPIN: This is a terrific matchup in every way for Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins.
