NFL injuries in Week 12: Rachaad White questionable after showing up on injury report; Steelers, Bengals are stars

NFL Week 12 kicked off with a Thanksgiving tripleheader, as the Green Bay Packers upset the Detroit Lions, the Dallas Cowboys blew out the Washington Commanders and the San Francisco 49ers defeated the rival Seattle Seahawks. Next up was the Miami Dolphins at New York Jets on Black Friday, which Miami won easily. Now we have eleven games to look forward to on Sunday.

As every week, injuries are a central storyline here in Week 12. Below we’ll list the latest injury reports for Sunday’s games. Who is in? Who’s out? Everything you need to know can be found here.

Odds thanks to SportsLine consensus.

Lattimore will not play for the Saints due to the ankle injury he suffered in New Orleans’ last outing against Minnesota. Miller is also out with an ankle injury. Both players did not train at all this week.

Hollins will not play for Atlanta after not practicing Thursday or Friday. Heinicke is doubtful to support Desmond Ridder due to his hamstring injury. He was limited in training all week. In some good news for the Falcons, kicker Younghoe Koo is without a game title due to his back injury and is good to go.

Fitzpatrick will miss another game due to his hamstring injury. He hasn’t trained all week. Adams will also be inactive this weekend, but he was limited in practice all week. Pierre is doubtful after missing Friday’s training with a shoulder injury.

The Jake Browning era is upon us in Cincinnati, but the Bengals’ new QB won’t have Higgins to throw the ball on Sunday as he will miss another game due to a hamstring injury. He did not train all week, nor did Taylor-Britt, who is also out with a quad injury. Pratt, who is questionable to play, appeared on the injury report Friday after missing practice due to illness.

Jacksonville will be without a top corner this week as Campbell did not practice at all. Jones was limited in practice all week due to a knee injury. He is doubtful to play, as is Robertson-Harris with an ankle problem.

The Texans will be without Brown on offense and Ward on defense as neither has practiced all week. Pierce and Scruggs both have great chances to play Sunday, as both were full participants in practice all week. This would be Scruggs’ NFL debut.

The Buccaneers have been hammered on the defensive side of the ball, as Todd Bowles won’t have his defensive leader David on the field this weekend, or one of his best cornerbacks in Dean. To make matters worse, Davis and White are also questionable to play. Davis was a full participant in practice on Friday, while White was limited. Greene and Hall first appeared on the injury report Friday and did not practice. Saturday, the team announced Greene would not travel, while White was added to the report with a knee injury and is officially questionable to play.

Indy will be without Brents and Ogletree, who haven’t practiced all week. Kelly was limited on Wednesday, a full participant on Thursday, but missed practice on Friday due to a concussion. He is also excluded.

Each of the Patriots’ questionable players was limited all week. Brown will try to suit up on Sunday after being inactive in each of the last two games.

Neal will miss another match due to injury, having not trained all week with his ankle problem. Lawrence is hesitant to play, and like Neal, he hasn’t practiced all week. Slayton was limited in practice Thursday and Friday and it is doubtful he will play.

Carolina will be without Hurst on Sunday, who missed practice all week with his concussion. Chinn is not yet ready to return to the lineup, but was limited in practice all week. Henderson is listed as questionable with a concussion despite being a full participant in practice on both Thursday and Friday. Fellow cornerback Horn is also questionable after being limited all week. Luvu is one to watch as he was limited in practice on Wednesday with his shoulder injury and returned to full participant status on Thursday, but was limited again on Friday. He is officially listed as doubtful.

Burks will miss his third straight game this week as he has yet to return to practice after suffering a concussion against the Steelers earlier this month. Hubbard will reportedly miss the remainder of the season due to a biceps injury, and he has been officially ruled out for Sunday. Quarterback Will Levis was on the injury report with a foot/ankle injury, but he was a full participant all week.

Rams coach Sean McVay announced Friday afternoon that Cooper Kupp will face the Cardinals. Injuries have limited the former Super Bowl MVP to just six games this season.

Brown was the Cardinals’ only questionable player who wasn’t a limited practice participant Friday. Brown did not practice the past two days after being limited on Wednesday.

With Ward out, veteran backup Mike Ford is expected to start alongside fellow cornerback Greg Newsome II. Ford, a six-year veteran, recorded his first career interception during Cleveland’s come-from-behind win over Baltimore in Week 10.

For the Broncos, Locke’s status is moving up as he was a full practice participant on Friday.

Hardman will not play on Sunday because he has not trained all week due to a thumb injury. Patrick Mahomes will not have McKinnon in the backfield this week due to a groin injury, which could open the door for more playing time for Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

Raiders interim coach Antonio Pierce said Crosby will receive around-the-clock treatment in hopes of facing the Chiefs.

β€œOne thing about him: If he can be there on Sunday, he will be there,” Pierce said of Crosby via the team’s website.

Buffalo got some good news when defensemen Micah Hyde (neck/stinger) and Cam Lewis (shoulder) were taken off the injury report after a full practice on Friday.

Goedert’s status is high, given that Jake Stoll β€” the Eagles’ second-best tight end in terms of receiving β€” has just three catches this season.

Beckham, Flowers and Williams are on the rise for Sunday, as each player was a full practice participant on Friday. Beckham said he will make a decision during the match.

On the plus side for the Chargers, Everett practiced fully on Friday after being limited the previous two days. Everett’s status on Friday was even more important, as Vannett will be inactive on Sunday.

Analysis is yet to come.
