Seahawks @ Falcons

Newly acquired safety Quandre Diggs (hamstring) is questionable for his first game with the Seahawks, not that anyone expected him to start so soon after being traded from Detroit. Free safety Bradley McDougald (back) is questionable this week. His replacement would be Lano Hill. Defensive lineman Ziggy Ansah is questionable with an ankle injury. His backup is Rasheem Green.

For Atlanta, starting cornerback Desmond Trufant (toes) has been declared out this week. Blidi Wreh-Wilson is listed as his backup.

Broncos @ Colts

No IDP relevant defensive players were listed on the injury report for the Broncos.

For the Colts, safety Malik Hooker (knee ) and defensive end Jabaal Sheard (foot) was limited to start the week, but aren’t listed on the final injury report as of Friday, therefore, both should be good to go on Sunday.

Buccaneers @ Titans

IDP starters are good to go for Tampa Bay this week. The Titans, however, will be without cornerback Adoree Jackson (foot). Therefore, Tye Smith will be the backup for Logan Ryan this week.

Cardinals @ Saints

For Arizona, linebackers Jordan Hicks (calf) and Haason Reddick (knee) are both questionable to play on Sunday versus New Orleans. If they cannot go Joe Walker and Dennis Gardeck would fill in for them respectively.

All IDP relevant players on the Saints are good to go.

Bengals @ Rams

In Cincy, starting cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick has been ruled out with a knee injury. Tony McRae will fill in for Kirkpatrick this week. All other IDP starters for the Bengals are active. For L.A., Clay Matthews is still sidelined with a broken jaw leaving Natrez Patrick to fill in for him.

Eagles @ Bills

For Philly, linebacker Nigel Bradham (ankle/illness) has been ruled out. T.J. Edwards should get the start in his place. For Buffalo, linebacker Matt Milano is questionable with a hamstring injury. Maurice Alexander is his backup.

Chargers @ Bears

All IDP relevant starters for the Charger and the Bears are active.

Giants @ Lions

IDP starters for the “G-Men” are available for Sunday’s matchup in Detroit. For the Lions, cornerback Darius Slay (hamstring) has been ruled out this week. Filling in for him would be Rashaan Melvin.

Jets @ Jaguars

For the Jets, linebackers C.J. Mosley (groin) and Albert McClennan (concussion) have been ruled out this week. Fellow linebacker Neville Hewitt (neck/knee) is listed as doubtful. The only linebacker that seems healthy enough to start as an IDP-LB is Blake Cashman.

All IDP stars for the Jaguars will start on Sunday.

Panther @ 49ers

All relevant IDP stars for both teams are all active this week!

Raiders @ Texans

No IDP injury news out of Oakland. For Houston, only safety Tashaun Gipson (back/hamstring/wrist) is questionable for Sunday’s matchup. Filling his role would be Jahleel Addae.

Browns @ Patriots

Defensive backs Greedy Williams, Denzel Ward, and Damarious Randall (hamstrings) are all declared active for their week 8 showdown with the Patriots. Defensive end Myles Garrett (knee) was limited on Thursday, but he is good to go this week!

For New England, safety Patrick Chung (heel/chest) was limited all week and is declared questionable. His back up is Duron Harmon.

Packers @ Chiefs

Rookie strong safety for the Green Bay Packers, Darnell Savage, is still suffering the effects of an ankle injury he suffered a few weeks ago and was limited in practice this week. He’s officially listed as questionable. If he doesn’t suit up Will Redmond would normally fill in for Savage, BUT it just so happens that Redmond started the week participating fully in practice but an ankle injury has caused him to participate in a limited fashion to end the week. While he’s officially not listed on the injury report anymore this is a situation that’s worth monitoring.

For Kansas City, defensive end Frank Clark (neck) and defensive tackle Chris Jones (groin) have been declared out for Sunday’s matchup. You might see some rotation of Emmanuel Ogbah and Tanoh Kpassgnon at defensive end for Clark and Khalen Saunders would fill-in at defensive tackle for Jones.

Dolphins @ Steelers

For the Dolphins, Rashaad Jones (chest) still has not practiced this week and there is a good chance he doesn’t play on Monday night. If he doesn’t suit up Steven Parker would be assuming his safety duties. For the “black and yellow” T.J. Watt has been suffering from an abdominal injury but was full practice on Friday and will more than likely suit up on Monday.
