Packers' Davante Adams: Listed as questionable
Listed as a non-participant throughout the week of practice, Adams is unlikely to be available for Sunday's game. If Adams can't play, Ty Montgomery figures to work alongside Randall Cobb and James Jones (probable-hamstring) in three-wide formations.
Packers' Morgan Burnett: Listed as questionable
Burnett didn't practice during the week, making him a long shot for Sunday's game. If he does indeed miss another contest, Micah Hyde will start next to Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
Seahawks' Thomas Rawls: Expected to start
Thomas Rawls ' teammate Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Cincinnati, ESPN's Field Yates reports.
With Fred Jackson (ankle) also expected to sit, Rawls may end up playing nearly every snap, as the Seattle Seahawks don't have another true running back. They may sign someone before Sunday, but it appears fullback Derrick Coleman will be the top backup. Even with the expectation of a huge snap count, Rawls is no sure thing to have a solid game, as the Cincinnati defense is far superior to the Seattle offensive line.
Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch: Officially ruled out
Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Cincinnati, ESPN's Field Yates reports.
Lynch was officially ruled out just a few hours after head coach Pete Carroll said his star running back would be a game-time decision. It's unclear what caused the change of heart, but there's little question that Thomas Rawls will lead the Seattle backfield, potentially playing close to every snap. Fred Jackson (ankle) is also unavailable, and the Seattle Seahawks have yet to sign a running back for depth, leaving fullbacks Derrick Coleman and Will Tukuafu as the only backup options.
Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah deemed probable for Sunday
Detroit Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) has been designated as probable for the Week 5 game against Arizona.
A regular on the injury report this season, Ansah has yet to miss a game and already has four sacks. He should be fine for Sunday, but his matchup with Cardinals left tackle Jared Veldheer is a tough one.
Steelers LB Ryan Shazier practiced in full Friday
Ryan Shazier (shoulder) was a full participant at practice Friday.
Shazier missed the previous two games with a shoulder injury, prompting some frustration from the 23-year-old linebacker according to Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. While his status for Monday will likely be decided by head coach Mike Tomlin, early indications seem to suggest Shazier should be able to suit up against the Chargers.
Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew probable for Week 5
Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Pettigrew would normally be restricted to a role that's mostly focused on in-line blocking, but with Eric Ebron (knee) out for at least one week, Pettigrew could see some extra targets in his return from a three-game absence. He still offers minimal upside in the passing game, and Tim Wright will likely absorb some of Ebron's snaps.
Lions TE Eric Ebron ruled out for Week 5
Eric Ebron (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
With Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring) listed as probable, the impact of Ebron's absence is at least somewhat mitigated. It's still a tough loss for the Detroit passing game, but there's some chance Pettigrew's return will help get the rushing attack on track. Though it's been reported that he could miss up to three games, Ebron ran on the side with trainers at Friday's practice, suggesting he has some shot to return for Week 6 against the Bears.
Lions RB Joique Bell set to sit out Week 5
Joique Bell (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
According to MLive.com, Bell had a procedure on his ankle back in March, in addition to the reported surgeries on his Achilles and knee. The third surgery explains his slow recovery leading up to the season, and he's reportedly been bothered by the ankle all along. Bell's early-season struggles now come with more context, but he seems to be in danger of missing games beyond Week 5. With the Detroit offensive line struggling and the backfield still crowded, Bell offers very little upside.
Browns' Shaun Draughn: Doubtful for Sunday
Shaun Draughn (back) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's contest, Andrew Gribble of clevelandbrowns.com reports.
Draughn has largely been passed over in the Cleveland Browns ' running back rotation as Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson have received the majority of the opportunities in recent weeks. With Robert Turbin (ankle) likely coming back in a week or two, Draughn's role in the offense, and his dwindling fantasy value, may have to hinge on multiple injuries to players above him on the depth chart.
