Mike Daniels

Packers DL Mike Daniels (foot) is expected to be sidelined a "few weeks."
Analysis: Daniels met with foot-specialist Dr. Robert Anderson last week. He's going to miss some time after going down in Thursday's game. Losing Daniels is a huge hit to an undermanned Packers defensive line. Montravius Adams will pick up Daniels' snaps.
Connor Williams
Connor Williams healthy, but may not start

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Cowboys LG Connor Williams (questionable, knee) will be available for Week 11 against the Falcons, though he may not start.
Johnathan Joseph
Jonathan Joseph likely to play Sunday
Sun, Nov 18, 2018, 7:36 AM
Ian Rapoport on Twitter
Texans CB Jonathan Joseph (knee, ankle) is expected to play in Week 11 against Washington.
Analysis: Joseph is ready to return coming off Houston's bye. He ended up missing only one game. Joseph has been one of the best corners in the league this year, grading in the top-15 of PFF's coverage ratings.
Lane Johnson
Lane Johnson (knee) expected to suit up in NO
Sun, Nov 18, 2018, 7:34 AM
Ian Rapoport on Twitter
Eagles RT Lane Johnson (questionable, knee) is expected to play Week 11 against the Saints.
Analysis: This will be his first game action since Week 8 when he suffered a sprained MCL in a win over Jacksonville. Johnson has been a stud when healthy this year, earning PFF's No. 10 grade among tackles. His return pushes Halapoulivaati Vaitai back to the bench.
Rob Gronkowski
Gronkowski (back) expected back for Week 12
Sun, Nov 18, 2018, 7:30 AM
Adam Schefter on Twitter
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Rob Gronkowski (back) is expected to return for Week 12 against the Jets.
Analysis: Gronkowski has missed New England's last two games with back and ankle injuries but had the bye to heal up. The injury-prone 29-year-old has disappointed this year, going six straight games without either a touchdown or 100 yards receiving. Gronk will always be at risk of an in-game setback, though obviously the future Hall of Famer remains a must-start in all formats.
Joe Flacco
Joe Flacco (hip) could return in Week 12
Sun, Nov 18, 2018, 7:27 AM
Tom Pelissero on Twitter
NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Joe Flacco (hip) doesn't need surgery.
Analysis: Flacco is out Sunday, but this isn't a season-ending injury. He's expected to missed 1-2 weeks, potentially returning for Week 12 against Oakland. Flacco isn't a lock to get his starting job back when healthy if Baltimore is out of playoff contention. The Ravens have a window to get out of Flacco's contract this offseason.
Chris Godwin
Godwin (ankle) expected to play vs Giants
Sun, Nov 18, 2018, 7:14 AM
Ian Rapoport on Twitter
Chris Godwin (questionable, ankle) is expected to play in Week 11 against the Giants.
Analysis: Godwin created some concern after missing two practices early in the week, but he got in a full session Friday. It's possible the Bucs cut back his snaps at less than 100 percent, giving Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries all higher floors. Godwin is a risky FLEX.
Trent Williams

Redskins LT Trent Williams (questionable, thumb) is not expected to play Week 11 against the Texans.
Zack Martin
Zack Martin (knee) cleared for Week 11

Cowboys RG Zack Martin (questionable, knee) is expected to play Week 11 against the Falcons.
A.J. Green
A.J. Green to test out injured toe in warmups
Sun, Nov 18, 2018, 7:08 AM
Ian Rapoport on Twitter
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports A.J. Green (doubtful, toe) made the trip to Baltimore and will work out on the field prior to Week 11 against the Ravens.
Analysis: Green still seems unlikely to play, though the fact that he hasn't officially been ruled out and did indeed travel to Baltimore with the team is an interesting wrinkle. In the off-chance that Green does suit up, he could be limited or used as a decoy coming off a painful toe injury. If he sits, which remains the most likely outcome, it will open up targets for Tyler Boyd, John Ross and C.J. Uzomah, among others.
John Ross
John Ross (groin) good to go vs. Ravens
Sun, Nov 18, 2018, 7:05 AM
Ian Rapoport on Twitter
John Ross (questionable, groin) is expected to play Week 11 against the Ravens.
Analysis: The second-year speedster is all systems go after getting in a limited week of practice. With A.J. Green (doubtful, toe) likely to sit, Ross should see an added workload Sunday at Baltimore. That said, the 2017 first-rounder makes for a risky fantasy bet in a tough matchup.
Joe Flacco
Joe Flacco (hip) will not play vs Bengals
Sat, Nov 17, 2018, 10:52 PM
Adam Schefter on Twitter
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Joe Flacco (hip) will not play Week 11 against the Bengals.
Analysis: The Ravens milked this situation for all it was worth, but it has been fairly clear all week Flacco would sit, and it was all but confirmed when he drew a doubtful tag on Friday. Lamar Jackson is expected to start in his place. If the rookie shows well, Flacco might not ever get his job back.
Lamar Jackson
Lamar Jackson expected to start Week 11
Sat, Nov 17, 2018, 10:51 PM
Adam Schefter on Twitter
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Lamar Jackson is expected to start Week 11 against the Bengals.
Analysis: There was some thought the Ravens would turn to Robert Griffin III with Joe Flacco (hip) out, but Schefter called Jackson the "expected starting QB." The rookie could not have a better matchup for his career debut. The Bengals are banged up on the defensive side of the ball, and they were having trouble stopping opposing quarterbacks even when they were healthy. Jackson carries risk in his first start, but he also has high-end QB1 upside.
Joey Bosa
Joey Bosa (foot) expected to be active Wk 11
Sat, Nov 17, 2018, 10:50 PM
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Chargers DE Joey Bosa (foot) is expected to play Week 11 against the Broncos.
Antonio Gates
Antonio Gates (knee) expected to play

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Antonio Gates (knee) is expected to play Week 11 against the Broncos.
Keke Coutee (hamstring) expected to play
Sat, Nov 17, 2018, 10:48 PM
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Keke Coutee (hamstring) is expected to play Week 11 against the Redskins.
A.J. Green
A.J. Green (toe) not expected to play Week 11
Sat, Nov 17, 2018, 10:47 PM
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports A.J. Green (toe) is not expected to play Week 11 against the Ravens.
Joey Bosa
Chargers DE Joey Bosa could play 10-15 snaps
Sat, Nov 17, 2018, 7:02 PM
ESPN
Chargers DE Joey Bosa (questionable, foot) is expected to see limited snaps if active for Sunday's game with the Broncos.
Analysis: Bosa returned to practice this week but didn't get in any full sessions. He's not going to have an every-down role if he plays, with the Chargers likely limiting him to 10-15 snaps. Bosa's status should be known early Sunday.
Brandon Marshall
Brandon Marshall not expected to play Sunday
Sat, Nov 17, 2018, 5:05 PM
Josh Katzenstein on Twitter
The New Orleans Times-Picayune doesn't expect Brandon Marshall to play in Week 11 against the Eagles.
Analysis: Marshall had only five days to learn the Saints' playbook. He also may not be in game shape after sitting the last three weeks. Marshall doesn't figure to play many snaps even if he's active. He's likely going to have to wait until Week 12 for his Saints debut.
Nathan Peterman
Nathan Peterman works out for Lions
Sat, Nov 17, 2018, 3:42 PM
Field Yates on Twitter
Free agent Nathan Peterman worked out for the Lions.
Analysis: It's the first interest in Peterman since his Buffalo release. Despite starting experience, Peterman is a third-string talent. He isn't a lock to resurface this year.
