Haden was limited in Friday's practice, but defensive coordinator Ray Horton expects to have him available in some capacity Sunday. That would serve as a boost to Cleveland's secondary, especially since fellow starting cornerback Tramon Williams (shoulder) is listed as doubtful to face a pass-happy Redskins offense.
With Sammy Watkins (foot) also absent, Marquise Goodwin will likely get the start across from Robert Woods, with Walter Powell serving as the No. 3 wideout. The Bills will try to win on the legs of LeSean McCoy and Tyrod Taylor.
In addition to ruling Watkins out, head coach Rex Ryan admitted there's serious concern regarding the wideout's availability for the rest of the year, according to Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News. This isn't exactly breaking news, as it was previously reported that Watkins might have to manage pain in his surgically-repaired foot all season. He's thus far losing the battle, now sitting out for a second straight week after playing two ineffective games to start the campaign. Marquise Goodwin will likely get another start across from Robert Woods on Sunday.
Jennings has participated in the Giants' first two practice sessions of the week, but he was spotted with a larger wrap on his thumb than he had Thursday and took part in fewer drills than he did the day before, so his injured thumb does not appear to be trending in the right direction.
Bryant will be able to get some rehab work in Friday, but he will be held out of practice for the third day in a row. Head coach Jason Garrett did not rule him out for Week 4 when asked about Bryant's status prior to Friday's session, but the Cowboys will announce his official status for Sunday's matchup with the 49ers at some point Friday afternoon.
It's not clear how much work Jones was able to get in Friday, but it's a good sign that he was on the field after being added to the Lions' injury report Thursday. The Lions will reveal his injury status for Week 4 when they release their injury report Friday afternoon.
Decker was able to take part in stretches at the beginning of practice, but he did not have his helmet with him, so it's possible that could be the extent of the work he gets in Friday. The Jets will update his status for Week 4 when they release their final injury report of the week Friday afternoon.
With Watkins not present during the media portion of Friday's practice, it appears he will sit out for the third day in a row. The Bills are hopeful that Watkins will still be able to play Sunday, but the team will release his official Week 4 injury designation sometime after Friday's session.
It's not clear how much work Thomas was able to get in Friday's practice, but he will have a chance to take the field Sunday. Thomas will be a game-time decision for Week 4, according to Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com, and the Jaguars and Colts will kick off at 8:30 AM ET, so those considering using Thomas in Sunday's lineups should be sure to check in on his status early in the morning.
The second-year signal-caller has already tallied two games with 50-plus pass attempts in 2016, a mark he only reached once all of his rookie campaign. The extra drop-backs have unsurprisingly resulted in more turnovers, as Winston has six interceptions and two lost fumbles through the first three weeks. He's also been much less efficient in the two games, both losses, that have featured the elevated number of throws, as he's seen a 14-point drop in completion percentage (down to 57.3 from 71.9) and almost three yards less per attempt (down to 5.89 from 8.78) when compared to his numbers in those respective categories in the season-opening victory over the Falcons. Head coach Dirk Koetter has expressed a desire for a much more balanced attack leading up to the Week 4 tilt against the Broncos, but achieving that will be challenging without the steady chain-moving presence of Doug Martin (hamstring) in the backfield for what figures to be at least another two games. Although Charles Sims did provide some reason for optimism by averaging a solid 4.2 YPC in Week 3 versus the Rams, the going on the ground figures to be a lot tougher against a stalwart Denver front seven come Sunday, which could lead to another heavy workload for Winston's arm.
