The injury report for this week is dotted with fantasy stars. Running back was hit particularly hard—Dalvin Cook, D’Andre Swift and Melvin Gordon were all ruled out ahead of time. The Cardinals should get the tandem of Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins back on the field. Deebo Samuel and Jalen Hurts, two of the top scorers at their respective positions, are out.
Catch up on the latest injury news before Sunday’s games begin.
Teams on bye: Browns, Packers, Titans, Panthers
Kyler Murray, Cardinals—ACTIVE
Murray (ankle) is expected to make his return for the NFC-leading Cardinals against the Bears, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. He last played in Week 8. Arizona is 2-1 without him.
Update: Murray will play.
Jalen Hurts, Eagles—OUT
Hurts (ankle) may miss his first game of the season against the Jets, according to multiple reports. The team wants to see how he feels on Sunday before making any final decisions. If Hurts cannot go, backup Gardner Minshew would start in his place.
Justin Fields, Bears—OUT
Fields (ribs) is doubtful against the Cardinals. He was out for the team’s Week 12 win against the Lions. Andy Dalton started in his place on Thanksgiving and will do so again on Sunday.
Update: Fields will not play.
Daniel Jones, Giants—OUT
Jones (neck) has been ruled out against the Dolphins and will miss his first game of the season. Backup Mike Glennon will start in place of Jones.
Dalvin Cook, Vikings—OUT
Cook (shoulder) was ruled out against the Lions. He was carted off the field in Week 12 and will miss his third game of the season. Alexander Mattison will start in Cook’s place. The expectation is for Cook to miss at least two games, which would mean a Week 15 return against the Bears.
D’Andre Swift, Lions—OUT
Swift (shoulder) left Week 12’s game early and will not play against the Vikings. This will be the first game of the season that Swift will miss. Jamaal Williams will start in his place.
Darrell Henderson Jr., Rams—QUESTIONABLE
Henderson (thigh) will be tested prior to the game against the Jaguars, though Schefter reported the Rams are not optimistic about his availability. He has only missed one game this season. Sony Michel is in line for an expanded workload with or without Henderson.
Melvin Gordon, Broncos—OUT
Gordon (hip/shoulder) was ruled out against the Chiefs and will miss his first game of the season. This opens the door for Javonte Williams, whom the Broncos drafted in the second round, to shoulder the bulk of the running back work.
James Robinson, Jaguars—QUESTIONABLE
Robinson (heel, knee) plans to try to play against the Rams, according to Schefter. Robinson has only missed one game so far this season.
Josh Jacobs, Raiders—QUESTIONABLE
Jacobs (ankle) is expected to play against Washington, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Jacobs has not missed a game since Week 3 and is coming off his best rushing output of the season.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Chiefs—QUESTIONABLE
Edwards-Helaire (illness) is expected to play against the Broncos, according to multiple reports. He made his return from a five-game absence in Week 11 and Kansas City was on bye last week.
J.D. McKissic, Washington Football Team—OUT
McKissic (concussion) was ruled out against the Raiders. Sunday will be his first missed game of the year.
Alex Collins, Seahawks—QUESTIONABLE
Collins (abdomen) remains questionable heading into Sunday against San Francisco. Seattle just signed veteran Adrian Peterson and is activating him off the practice squad. Rashaad Penny and Travis Homer are both questionable as well.
Boston Scott, Eagles—ACTIVE
Scott (illness) is expected to play against the Jets, according to Schefter. Jordan Howard is out.
Update: Scott will play.
Deebo Samuel, 49ers—OUT
Samuel (groin) was ruled out against the Seahawks. He has been utilized more as a running back than as a receiver in recent weeks to great success.
DeAndre Hopkins, Cardinals—ACTIVE
Hopkins (hamstring) will play against the Bears, according to NFL Network’s Stacey Dales. He has not played since Week 8. Arizona returns its top pass catcher and quarterback after sustained absences.
Update: Hopkins will play.
Brandin Cooks, Texans—ACTIVE
Cooks (illness) is expected to play against the Colts, according to Schefter. Houston’s top wide receiver has not missed a game this season.
Update: Cooks will play.
Corey Davis, Jets—ACTIVE
Davis (groin) is a game-time decision against the Eagles. He missed his third game of the season in Week 12.
Update: Davis will play.
Odell Beckham Jr., Rams—QUESTIONABLE
Beckham (hip) is expected to play against the Jaguars, according to Rapoport. He should also be a bigger part of Los Angeles’ offense, according to the same report.
Allen Robinson, Bears—OUT
Robinson (hamstring) remains doubtful against the Cardinals. He has not played since Week 9.
Update: Robinson will not play.
Kadarius Toney, Giants—OUT
Toney (oblique/quad) remains doubtful heading into Sunday against the Dolphins. He was out for Week 12, his third missed game of the season.

Waller (back/knee) was ruled out against Washington. This marks the second game Las Vegas’ top option has missed this season. Foster Moreau will start in his place.
