Head coach Rex Ryan said Thursday that it would be "a reach" to expect Williams to play this week, and a missed practice for the third day in a row does not help his chances. The Bills will update Williams' status sometime following the conclusion of Friday's practice.
Thomas was able to get on the practice field Friday for the third day in a row, but he was limited all week, leaving his availability for Week 5 uncertain. Thomas' status figures to be ultimately determined when the Jaguars release their inactives Sunday morning, but given that he is still not 100 percent, it should not come as a surprise if he is held out of another game.
"[He's been] Getting in condition without putting too much stress and strain on his foot, so he has not been out running routes or anything like that up to this point," coach Jason Garrett said. "There are different ways to run where you can kind of get yourself in as good a shape as possible leading up to it, so he's been involved in that."
The Cowboys still haven't ruled out a return for Bryant in Week 7 following their bye, but that timetable seems extremely optimistic if he isn't able to put full weight on his surgically repaired foot yet. More likely, the wide receiver will be able to rejoin the lineup some time in November.
Jackson was able to take part in drills earlier this week, so it's not clear if he is simply being held out Friday, or if he is feeling renewed soreness after practicing for a couple days. The Redskins will provide an update Jackson's status when they release Friday's injury report.
Bell's Week 5 status will not officially be revealed until Friday afternoon, but it was reported Thursday that he is not expected to play this week, and a missed practice Friday certainly does not help his chances of suiting up Sunday.
While Ebron was able to run around Friday, he did not log any practice participation this week and is almost certainly out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. It was reported earlier in the week that he could miss up to three games, but with him already back up on his feet, he could have a chance to return to action after missing just one game.
Culliver played through the knee injury in Week 4 but gave up two touchdowns. It's unclear if he will play this week.
Culliver played through the knee injury in Week 4, but gave up two touchdowns in the process and did not look like himself. Head coach Jay Gruden said he's confident in veteran cornerback Will Blackmon, who will play in Culliver's place on Sunday.
Carroll noted that Lynch is "really close" to being ready to play, but a final call on his status will not be made until sometime Sunday. Expect him to be listed as "questionable" when the Seahawks release their final injury report of the week following Friday's practice.
The team and Rex Ryan have been talking all week about "Boobie Time" and now he'll receive that chance. Dixon will get the first crack at getting the ground game going against a Titans defense that hasn't been great against the run.
On the flip side, Dixon doesn't have a track record of being a feature back and there are already rumblings that that team will mix in Dan Herron and Cierre Wood if he turns into a bust. That all said, he's the Buffalo back to own if you're in a Week 5 pinch.
