    NFL Nation reporters assess the biggest injuries across the league for Week 10. Glenn Hubbard Jersey .AFC East | AFC North| AFC South | AFC West NFC East | NFC North | NFC South | NFC WestAFC EASTBuffalo BillsThe Bills lost starting center Eric Wood to a broken right leg in Monday nights loss to Seattle. Rex Ryan has yet to decide whether Ryan Groy or Patrick Lewis will replace Wood, a Pro Bowler last season, in the starting lineup. Not only are the Bills losing their offensive lines longtime signal-caller, but also one of the leaders in the locker room. -- Mike RodakMiami DolphinsDolphins starting outside linebacker Jelani Jenkins suffered his third and most significant injury of the season last week when he broke his left hand in a win over the Jets. Hell skip surgery and opt to play with a cast because he doesnt want to miss time -- but it remains to be seen how effective Jenkins will be trying to tackle and cover with one good arm. -- James WalkerNew England PatriotsBill Belichick has noted how the Patriots are significantly healthier at this point of the season than they were in 2015, and they are also coming off their bye. The only player who hasnt been available because of injury is fourth-string defensive tackle Woodrow Hamilton, which reflects the positive outlook health-wise. A few things to watch for this week: How did the week off help tight end Martellus Bennett (ankle) and wide receiver Julian Edelman (foot) in terms of coming back stronger? -- Mike ReissNew York JetsBarring a setback in practice, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick (mild knee sprain) should be good to go Sunday against the Rams. He said hes definitely optimistic after a limited practice on Wednesday. He cant afford to sit out, knowing backup Bryce Petty is closing the gap, but Fitzpatrick said that doesnt enter his mind as he prepares. It would be an upset if he doesnt start this week. -- Rich CiminiAFC NORTHBaltimore RavensThe Ravens are expected to be without Pro Bowl right guard Marshal Yanda for the third time this season. Yanda is listed as doubtful for Thursdays game against the Browns with a shoulder injury. Its a significant loss for the Ravens, who will start either John Urschel or Ryan Jensen in his place. -- Jamison HensleyCincinnati BengalsThe Bengals dont have any. Really. Theyre coming off a bye and have gotten relatively healthy. Their only question now is if and when they activate Cedric Peerman or William Jackson III from injured reserve.?-- Katherine TerrellCleveland BrownsThe Browns have only one injury going into Thursday nights matchup in Baltimore, but its significant. Cornerback Jamar Taylor will not play with a groin muscle issue, which means that Tramon Williams should take his place. Williams has struggled this season. He will have to cover one of the Ravens talented wideouts.?-- Pat McManamonPittsburgh SteelersTight end Ladarius Green (ankle) could provide a boost to a sagging offense, and theres momentum for him to return after two weeks of practice. The Steelers have until Tuesday at 4 p.m. to activate Green from the physically unable to perform list. This, from coach Mike Tomlin, is encouraging: Hes proven his health. Hes in the process of proving his overall level of conditioning. The Steelers plan to be smart with how they use him (think packaged plays on passing downs). -- Jeremy FowlerAFC SOUTHHouston TexansThe Texans are coming off their bye week, when they had time to recover and treat nagging injuries. Running back Lamar Miller, who has been limited for the past two weeks after he injured a shoulder, said the time off was a huge help and he hoped to be at full strength Sunday in Jacksonville. He has practiced this week. Wide receiver Will Fuller (leg) and nose tackle Vince Wilfork (groin) both missed practice on Monday. Head coach Bill OBrien said both players are day-to-day. Im not sure that they would be available for Jacksonville. It looks like they might. I wouldnt know that until the end of the week, OBrien said. ?-- Sarah BarshopIndianapolis ColtsThe Colts are hoping the bye will help heal some of the players battling injuries. The biggest question mark is starting left guard Jack Mewhort, who missed the past three games with a triceps injury. Coach Chuck Pagano said its up in the air on if Mewhort will be able to practice when the team returns from the bye next week. -- Mike WellsJacksonville JaguarsWide receiver Allen Hurns remains in the concussion protocol, but indications are that hell be cleared before the end of the week and available to play against Houston on Sunday. Right tackle Jermey Parnell is battling a minor knee injury that kept him out of Wednesdays practice. Hes been bothered by a groin pull all year, but has played through it. A few other players are battling minor injuries that wont keep them from playing, so the Jaguars remain remarkably healthy this late in the season. -- Mike DiRoccoTennessee TitansThe Titans expected Marcus Mariota would at least warrant a mention on the injury report, but after suffering a minor ankle injury Sunday early in the loss at San Diego, the quarterback was a full participant in practice Wednesday and looked comfortable running all out. The Titans will certainly monitor it, but Mariota isnt on the injury report and the team has no concern about him for Sunday against Green Bay in Nashville. -- Paul KuharskyAFC WESTDenver BroncosCornerback Aqib Talib has missed Denvers past two games with a back injury. He received an epidural injection last week that the Broncos hope will allow him to play sooner than later. Talib did not participate in Wednesdays practice, but the team has tried to keep him involved. Hes day-to-day, hes doing really good. Remember he had an injection, so everythings tied to the injection and the time frame with how were working him now, said head coach Gary Kubiak. Talib was on the practice field observing the teams work Wednesday, something he had not done last week. He likely would have to improve significantly to play Sunday in New Orleans, but they could use his help given Saints quarterback Drew Bress has topped 400 yards in two of four home games.?-- Jeff LegwoldKansas City ChiefsAlex Smith began preparing for the game against the Panthers last week. He wasnt going to play in Sundays game against the Jaguars, but he still practiced (albeit with the scout team) and threw for more than an hour on the Arrowhead Stadium field before the game. He said the combination of the two made him feel like he never missed any time last week, though the Chiefs held him out of the game while he was being checked for a concussion. Both Smith and the Chiefs said the quarterback was never concussed. Coach Andy Reid said theyll accommodate Smith in practice this week by working at a faster tempo than usual. Weve got to make sure were practicing fast, he said. This is a very fast defense. -- Adam TeicherOakland RaidersThe Raiders enter their bye week with a pair of walk-through-type practices Wednesday and Thursday before getting Friday through Monday off. What better time, then, for cornerback Sean Smith to rest and rehab his injured left shoulder, which kept him out of Sunday nights victory over the Broncos. Same with defensive tackle Stacy McGee, who has not played since injuring an ankle at Jacksonville on Oct. 23. -- Paul GutierrezSan Diego ChargersAfter missing last week with a knee issue, rookie tight end Hunter Henry was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday. The Arkansas product is hopeful to play on Sunday if all goes well at practice this week. Henry has been an impact player for San Diegos offense, totaling 22 receptions for 340 yards and three touchdowns in eight games. -- Eric D. WilliamsNFC EASTDallas CowboysMorris Claibornes absence this week due to a groin injury could be felt considerably more than when the Cowboys played the Browns last week. The Steelers Antonio Brown represents the biggest challenge the Cowboys will face this season -- even bigger than Odell Beckham Jr. The familiarity with the Giants scheme helps the Cowboys in preparing for Beckham, whereas the unfamiliarity with Pittsburgh hurts in preparing for Brown. Claiborne, who could miss another month, was the Cowboys best corner. Orlando Scandrick is healthier and more confident because of it. Brandon Carr has had a solid season. Rookie Anthony Brown is the Cowboys third corner, and Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley knows how to create matchups thatll pit Antonio Brown against Anthony Brown.??-- Todd ArcherNew York GiantsWide receiver Victor Cruz could miss his first game of the season after spraining his ankle on Sunday. Cruz conceded earlier this week it was a possibility even though the results from an MRI came back positive. There is no serious damage, and its not a high ankle sprain. Fortunately, he also has an extra day of rest to try to get ready with the Giants hosting the Bengals on Monday night. -- Jordan RaananPhiladelphia EaglesDefensive tackle Bennie Logan could very well be back in the fold this weekend against the Falcons after missing the past three games with a groin injury. He practiced in full Wednesday and indicated afterward that he is on track. Thats key as the Eagles get set to take on the leagues most prolific offense. Tight end Brent Celek has a broken rib, but head coach Doug Pederson expects him to play. -- Tim McManusWashington RedskinsWide receiver DeSean Jackson did not practice, but thats becoming a standard approach for him on Wednesdays. The player the Redskins have to worry about is right tackle Morgan Moses, who was limited Wednesday with a sprained ankle. With Trent Williams suspended on the left side, Washington is already starting a backup in Ty Nsekhe. If Moses cant play, the Redskins would have to start Vinston Painter, who has appeared in three games in his brief career. Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Wednesday that Moses is getting stronger and the hope is that hell increase his practice time by Friday. -- John KeimNFC NORTHChicago BearsProbably the biggest injury question mark is nose tackle Eddie Goldman, who has missed six games because of a high ankle sprain. But Goldman returned to practice this week and thinks there is a chance he can play on Sunday in Tampa. I know for me, its possible that I [come back for the Bucs game], he said. Selected by the Bears in the second round of the 2015 NFL draft, Goldman is the clubs best interior defender. Goldman had 4.5 sacks and five tackles for loss as a rookie. Starting guards Kyle Long and Josh Sitton and receiver Eddie Royal are also back on the practice field. -- Jeff DickersonDetroit LionsDetroits goal during the bye is to get as healthy as possible for a potential run at the playoffs. The Lions took almost the entire week off in hopes of getting as close to healthy as possible. Among the players on the mend: starting cornerbacks Darius Slay (hamstring) and Nevin Lawson (hamstring), linebacker DeAndre Levy (knee), running back Theo Riddick (ankle) and right tackle Riley Reiff (illness). If Detroit can be healthy after the off week, that could bode well for its postseason chances. -- Michael RothsteinGreen Bay PackersTwo things the Packers offense has missed the most -- a deep-threat tight end and a traditional running back -- could be back in the mix Sunday at Tennessee. Jared Cook (ankle) and James Starks (knee surgery) were finally out of the rehab group and back on the practice field without any restrictions after lengthy absences. Were going to cut them loose [Wednesday] and then [Thursday] is the padded work, coach Mike McCarthy said. So thatll be the best indication on where they are. -- Rob DemovskyMinnesota VikingsWith Captain Munnerlyn sitting out the Vikings first practice of the week because of a sprained ankle and knee injury, the team will spend at least the first part of the week making alternative plans at cornerback. Munnerlyn has been a dependable nickel corner the past two seasons, and the Vikings used Terence Newman in his place after he was hurt on Sunday, putting Trae Waynes at Newmans typical left cornerback spot. If Munnerlyn isnt able to play on Sunday, the Vikings could use Newman in the slot instead of rookie Mackensie Alexander.?-- Ben GoesslingNFC SOUTHAtlanta FalconsFalcons coach Dan Quinn took an optimistic approach in discussing the status of Pro Bowl cornerback Desmond Trufant, who suffered a left shoulder injury last week. Quinn didnt specify what type of injury Trufant suffered, but he said the second opinion checked out fine, leaving his status as day-to-day; Trufant did not practice Wednesday. Quinn sounded hopeful about Trufant possibly practicing by the end of the week, but it seems more likely that the cornerback will miss Sundays game at Philadelphia, in which case second-year player Jalen Collins will get a chance to prove he belongs on the field. -- Vaughn McClureCarolina PanthersPro Bowl center Ryan Kalil did not practice on Wednesday after missing Sundays game with a shoulder injury. His status could remain up in the air until late in the week again. Defensive tackle Vernon Butler (ankle) is progressing and possibly could return, and its the same case for linebacker Shaq Thompson (knee). But Kalil is by far the biggest issue since his calls on the line are crucial to the offense. -- David NewtonNew Orleans SaintsThe Saints defense is getting much healthier, but left tackle Terron Armstead remains a critical question mark as New Orleans prepares to face Denvers pass-rushing duo of Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware. Armstead has been fighting through a lingering knee issue over the past few weeks, while rarely practicing. He left last Sundays game at San Francisco early and did not return, so his status is more uncertain than usual this week. Second-year pro Andrus Peat has been a decent alternative, while right tackle Zach Strief is having a very good season, but the Saints would be much better off with Armstead at close to full strength. -- Mike TriplettTampa Bay BuccaneersWide receiver Mike Evans practiced again Wednesday but is still in the concussion protocol, according to head coach Dirk Koetter, who said Evans could be cleared in the next day or two after a test. Pro Bowl running back Doug Martin also returned to practice for the first time since suffering a hamstring injury in Week 2, then having a setback when he tested it just prior to the Monday Night Football game in Week 5. He was limited. Jameis Winston is also on the teams injury report with a knee injury, but he was a full participant Wednesday. -- Jenna LaineNFC WESTArizona CardinalsArizonas top concern is wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who was limited in practice as he continues to recover from an ankle injury. Head coach Bruce Arians said Fitzgerald did some things, ran around, looked pretty good. The receiver suffered the sprained ankle in the Cardinals loss to the Panthers in Week 8, before their bye. He had last week off from practice. Both tight end Darren Fells (ankle) and linebacker Alex Okafor (calf) were suited up for practice but were limited. -- Josh WeinfussLos Angeles RamsThe Rams are actually the epitome of health right now. All 22 of their starters are healthy enough to play, which is crazy at this juncture of the season. Their primary cornerback, Trumaine Johnson, returned from a high ankle sprain on Sunday and played every defensive snap. Their defensive line is basically at full strength, too. Their only question marks -- guard Jamon Brown and receiver Nelson Spruce -- probably wouldnt play anyway. It is quite the luxury, but the Rams have to take advantage of it.?-- Alden GonzalezSan Francisco 49ersFor the third week in a row, 49ers running back Carlos Hydes status seems up in the air. He started the week in the blue no-contact jersey as he continues to work his way back from a sprained AC joint in his shoulder. Hyde wore that same jersey for all three days of practice last week, then didnt play against New Orleans. If he cant go to Glendale, DuJuan Harris likely would get another start in his place.??-- Nick WagonerSeattle SeahawksThe Seahawks are expecting to get strong safety Kam Chancellor (groin) back after a four-week absence. Theyve given up 50 points in the past two games, and they rank 26th overall in third-down defense. Seattle has played more snaps (244) than any other defense in the NFL over the past three weeks. They Seahawks are hoping to get a boost from the presence and leadership of Chancellor against Tom Brady and the Patriots high-powered offense. -- Sheil Kapadia Dave Henderson Jersey . Numbers Game looks into the Canadiens securing the services of Thomas Vanek in a trade with the New York Islanders. The Canadiens Get: LW Thomas Vanek and a conditional fifth-round pick. Stephen Piscotty Jersey . Miller reached right to deflect Mikhail Grabovskis attempt with just over 2 minutes remaining in regulation, and then made two more saves in the shootout Sunday to give the Sabres a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals. ;. Third-seeded Murray had the easiest path to victory on New Years Eve, barely breaking a sweat during his 6-0, 6-0 win over 2,129th-ranked Qatari wildcard recipient Mousa Shanan Zayed. The Edmonton Oilers have traded disappointing former first overall draft pick Nail Yakupov to the St. Louis Blues for a prospect and conditional draft pick, the teams announced Friday evening.It marks the second time in just more than three months that the Oilers have traded a former first overall draft pick. On June 30, they dealt Taylor Hall, the first overall pick in 2010, to New Jersey for defenseman Adam Larsson.The return for Yakupov, the first pick in 2012, was significantly lower and illustrates just how far his stock has fallen since he was drafted.The Oilers will receive Zach Pochiro and a third-round pick in 2017. That pick will become a second-round pick in 2018 if Yakupov scores 15 goals or more during the coming season.Pochiro is a center who was drafted in the fourth round, 112th overall, in 2013. He is 22 years old and played in the ECHL last season. He has not played in an NHL game.Yakupov, 23, has scored 50 goals in 252 NHL games and has never scored more than 17 in a single season. Jed Lowrie Jersey. He scored 17 in his rookie season with the Oilers during the lockout-shortened 2013 campaign. He had just eight goals last season and had been rumored to be on the trade block for months.The Oilers retained none of Yakupovs salary in the deal, a source told ESPNs Pierre LeBrun.Edmonton also finalized a one-year contract with unrestricted free-agent defenseman Kris Russell. The new deal between the Oilers and Russell is worth $3.1 million, a source told LeBrun. Russell has remained on the market all summer despite being a top-four defenseman.In 573 games in the NHL, Russell has scored 177 points playing for the Columbus Blue Jackets, Calgary Flames, St. Louis Blues and Dallas Stars.Russell, 29, led the League in 2014-15 with 283 blocked shots. Cheap Jerseys Online NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys White NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Online NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Store Discount Jerseys Cheap Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Discount NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys China China NFL Jerseys White ' ' '
