Andre Ellington (knee): Ellington returned from his knee injury last week and is expected to play once again this week despite dealing with a knee injury. He’s one of my top sleepers this week against a Titans defense that’s been weak against the run.

Michael Floyd (ankle): Floyd returned to practice on Thursday, a positive sign that he will play this week.

Carson Palmer (elbow): Palmer has been limited in practice but he’ll play.

Rob Housler (groin): Housler was still absent from practice on Thursday and is questionable for Sunday.

Roddy White (knee): Roddy has been limited in practice, this time with a knee injury, but should be able to play through it.

Tony Gonzalez (toe): Gonzalez was finally a full participant in practice on Thursday and will play this week against the Skins.

Greg Olsen (foot): Olsen returned to practice on Thursday and will play on Sunday. He figures to have a big day against a Jets defense that has not been able to stop opposing tight ends. Or receivers.

Jay Cutler (ankle): Cutler is back and is expected to start on Sunday against the Browns.

Willis McGahee (concussion): McGahee has been ruled out for Sunday’s game which could mean good things for Chris Ogbonnaya.

Wes Welker (concussion): Welker has been ruled out for Thursday’s game against the Chargers which could mean good things for Jacob Tamme.

Reggie Bush (calf): Bush hasn’t practiced this week as a precaution but say’s he will practice on Friday which is a good sign that he could play on Monday.

Aaron Rodgers (collarbone): Rodgers has a chance to play on Sunday but no one seems to know for sure. You’ll have to wait until gameday approaches to see if you can plug him back into your lineup.

Eddie Lacy (ankle): Lacy is in a walking boot and not practicing. He’ll be evaluated tomorrow to see if he’ll be able to practice. If he can’t play, be sure to grab James Starks off of waivers.

DeAndre Hopkins (ankle): Hopkins will play this week despite dealing with an ankle injury.

Ben Tate (ribs): Tate will play once again despite dealing with broken ribs.

Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring): MJD hasn’t practiced all week and will be re-evaluated on Friday. If he can’t play, Jordan Todman figures to get the nod.

Jordan Todman (shoulder): Todman is dealing with a shoulder injury but he’ll play, and possibly make his first NFL start.

Cecil Shorts (groin): Shorts hasn’t practiced all week and will be a gametime call for Sunday’s game against the Bills.

Lamar Miller (concussion): Miller is fully expected to play this week despite suffering a concussion last week.

Adrian Peterson (foot): Peterson has a foot sprain and is not expected to play on Sunday.

Toby Gerhart (hamstring): Gerhart, who would start in place of Peterson, is dealing with a hamstring issue and hasn’t practiced all week either. The Vikes could be down to just fullback Matt Asiata in their backfield.

John Carlson (concussion): Carlson is highly questionable for this week’s game as he recovers from a concussion.

Aaron Dobson (foot): Dobson still hasn’t practiced this week and is highly questionable for this week’s game.

Kenbrell Thompkins (hip): Unlike Dobson, Thompkins has a solid chance to play against the Dolphins this week.

Santonio Holmes (hamstring): Holmes has been dealing with all sorts of injuries but he’ll play against the Panthers.

Denarius Moore (shoulder): Moore practiced for the second straight day on Thursday and is looking more likely to play this week after missing the Raiders’ last two games.

Darren McFadden (ankle): McFadden continues to be absent from practice and is not expected to play the Chiefs this week.

Marshawn Lynch (shoulder): Lynch hasn’t practiced this week as he deals with a shoulder injury but he’s still likely to play on Sunday.

Percy Harvin (hip): Harvin remains out of practice and is not expected to play this week.

Doug Baldwin (neck): Baldwin hasn’t practiced this week and is questionable for Sunday’s game.

Frank Gore (ankle): Gore has been limited in practice but he’s expected to play on Sunday.

Tavon Austin (ankle): Austin hasn’t practiced this week and is questionable for Sunday’s game.

Vincent Jackson (hamstring): Jackson hasn’t practiced this week and is questionable but has a solid chance to play after he played through his injury last week.

Jordan Reed (concussion): Reed is still not practicing and may miss yet another game with a concussion.
