Week 10 of the NFL season is upon us.
Josh Allen reportedly expects to play the Vikings vs
Josh Allen is still officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s matchup with the Minnesota Vikings, but his status just got a major boost.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the work Allen did in Friday’s practice went well, so the Buffalo Bills will start their franchise quarterback on Sunday, even though he’s nursing an elbow sprain.
Allen finished practice on Friday, which marked his first work all week.
“We’re literally hour by hour here,” coach Sean McDermott said Friday, via ESPN, “we’re just looking at how he’s going to go throughout the day and while he’s going to go through various medical tests, he’s sure that he’s going to be able to check the boxes and the progress we can see if We can go through the course of the day here.”
Allen injured himself in their loss to the New York Jets last week after receiving a sack on his last drive. He is reportedly dealing with a right elbow UCL injury.
If Allen can’t go on Sunday for some reason, it will mark his first game missed since his rookie season in 2018. He missed four games that season due to a similar elbow injury. In that case, Case Keenum would be the starting point for the Bills.
The Bills also listed safety Jordan Poyer with an elbow injury and defensive end Greg Rousseau with an ankle injury.
Rams’ Matthew Stafford is progressing through concussion protocol
Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford practiced on a tight schedule on Friday, though his status for Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals is still unknown.
Stafford, who entered the concussion protocol this week, suddenly reported to the Rams on Wednesday, though it’s unclear what exactly happened. He was tested after the loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he was hit eight times and had four sacks.
While Friday’s limited practice is a good sign, it’s unclear if he’ll be ready on Sunday. If he can’t, he’ll go back to John Wolford – which will be his third start.
TJ Watt set for a comeback
Pittsburgh Steelers running back TJ Watt said Friday he will play in Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints after missing seven games with a pectoral injury.
Watt went down in his season opener with a pec injury and then opted to have a kneeling procedure last month while on injured reserve.

David Njoku Dolphins vs
Browns running back Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah and both tight end David Njoku for a matchup with the Miami Dolphins this week.
Owusu-Koramoah is back in practice on Friday for the first time since suffering a knee injury last month, but is not yet ready to take the field in full. Njoku sustained a high ankle sprain against the Baltimore Ravens on Oct. 23. on Friday he did not practice at all.
Cornerback Denzel Ward said he will play Sunday after missing more than a month with a concussion.
The Rockets will once again be without their top two receivers team announced Friday
Allen will miss the seventh game this season as he continues to nurse a hamstring injury. He didn’t practice all week after missing 9 weeks. Allen returned briefly in Week 7, following an initial five-game absence, but saw only two targets on just 23 snaps.
Williams, meanwhile, will miss his second game after spraining his ankle in Week 7. Williams is also expected to be out for at least a month, but he also had his sidekicks in Week 8. It’s unclear if he will miss his season. pay better.
Live LB Shaq Leonard at IR
The Colts sent linebacker Shaquille Leonard to injured reserve on Friday, which will keep him out for at least four games because of his lingering injury.
Leonard had a setback in practice this week, and said he still has nerve issues. He played in just three games this season while dealing with that back hand injury that came out of the offseason. Then he suffered a concussion again in the first game, which sent him out.
It is unclear if Leonard will be able to return to the field at all this season.
Cubs running back Deon Jackson and tight end Jelani Woods are also out for the game against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Kenny Golladay, it seems, is finally ready to play again for the New York Giants.
Golladay, after missing nearly six weeks with a knee injury, is officially questionable for Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans. As for the handicap, coach Brian Daboll said he is “optimistic that he will be ready to go.”
Golladay has just two catches for 22 yards in four games this season. He missed four games with a knee injury.
The Giants are also expected to have cornerback Cor’Dale Flott back from a calf injury, and linebacker Oshane Ximines is back with an injury. Tight end Daniel Bellinger is still out with an eye injury.
Packers CB Eric Stokes is likely out for the season
The Green Bay Packers are going to be without cornerback Eric Stokes for the rest of the season.
Stokes went down with ankle and knee injuries in last week’s loss to the Detroit Lions, and coach Matt LaFleur said Sunday that it was “respectfully unlikely” he could return at all.
Their first round of draft picks starts with twenty-five picks this season.
The Packers will also be without linebacker Rashan Gary, who will sustain a season-ending knee injury next week as well.
The Packers, who have lost five straight games, will host the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday afternoon.
The Tennessee Titans will be without several defensive players on Sunday against the Denver Broncos.
The Titans ruled out defensive linemen Jeffery Simmons, Bud Dupree and Zach Cunningham and safety Amani Hooker with various injuries.
Simmons first injured his ankle in Week 7 against the Colts in Indianapolis and aggravated it again the following week. Dupree will miss the fourth game this season with a hip injury he sustained in early September.
Hooker is out with a shoulder injury and will miss his second straight game. Cunningham is out again with an elbow injury after missing practice this week. Last month he lost to injury, but he played last week.
The Steelers will lose Minkah Fitzpatrick to the appendix
The Steelers get TJ Watt back, but now they lose safety Minkah Fitzpatrick. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Fitzpatrick will miss Sunday’s game against the Saints because of appendicitis.
Here we all know he will miss Sunday’s game, but he may need more time to recover. Rapoport did not say whether Fitzpatrick had surgery, but the conclusion is that he did so because the inflamed appendix cannot remain inside the body.
Fitzpatrick leads the Steelers with three interceptions and has 45 tackles and one touchdown. Damonte Kazee will likely start in his place.
