Week 12 of the NFL season has arrived after fans of the Buffalo Bills, Minnesota Vikings and Dallas Cowboys celebrated wins after three competitive games with their turkey on Thursday.
Here's how the upcoming slate will be impacted by injury.
Kyler Murray and Marquise Brown expected to return Sunday
Kyler Murray missed the last two weeks with a hamstring injury that he sustained against the Vikings in Week 8 and aggravated the following week against the Seahawks.
Now, he is expected to start against the Chargers after two consecutive days of practice.
Wide receiver Marquise Brown is expected to be activated off injured reserve and also play Sunday, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury. This will be the first time he plays with receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
Bears QB Justin Fields game-time decision
Chicago officially listed quarterback Justin Fields as questionable for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets due to his shoulder injury. Though he left the door open to playing, Fields was limited at practice all week.
Rookie defensive backs Kyler Gordon and Jaquan Brisker are both ruled out with concussions.
Joe Mixon ruled out against Titans
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon was listed as out of Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans in the team's injury report. Mixon sustained a concussion in last week's victory over the Steelers.
Star wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase injured his hip a month ago and is officially listed as questionable. According to coach Zac Taylor, he had a “good week” in his limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday.
Chiefs WR Juju Smith-Scheuster making return from concussion protocols
Kansas City wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster has cleared concussion protocol and will play Sunday against the Rams. He was injured Week 10 while taking a hit in the second quarter against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
This news coincides with his fellow receiver Kadarius Toney being ruled out with a hamstring injury, putting Smith-Scheuster right back at WR1.
