11/23/2017 Tom Brady, NE, QB
Brady returned to practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday with an Achilles issue.

Analysis: Brady will be just fine to play Sunday against the Dolphins.
11/23/2017 Travis Benjamin, LAC, WR
Benjamin is active for Thursday's game against the Cowboys.

Analysis: Benjamin has 20 catches for 325 yards and three TDs this season.
11/23/2017 Tyron Smith, Dal, T
Smith is active for Thursday's game against the Chargers after missing two with a groin injury.

Analysis: This is a huge addition for the Cowboys, who had been struggling to protect Dak Prescott without him.
11/23/2017 Kelvin Benjamin, Buf, WR
Benjamin (knee) still isn't practicing, so his status for Sunday's game against the Chiefs is very up in the air.

Analysis: Benjamin injured the knee last week, and though it's nothing major, it could keep him out for one week.
11/22/2017 David Johnson, Ari, RB
Johnson isn't expected to return this season.

Analysis: This isn't particularly surprising. The Cardinals are out of the playoff hunt and there's no sense risking his long-term health.
11/22/2017 Cam Newton, Car, QB
Newton was limited in practice with a right thumb injury, but the Panthers don't seem too concerned.

Analysis: Newton should be fine for Sunday against the Jets. Keep an eye on the weather in New Jersey, as that's more likely to affect his throwing than his thumb.
11/22/2017 Ryan Grant, Was, WR
Grant is questionable for the Redskins' game against the Giants on Thursday.

Analysis: Grant is good for about three catches a week and has totaled three TDs this season.
11/22/2017 Albert Wilson, KC, WR
Wilson returned to practice on Wednesday for the first time since pulling his hamstring in Week 8.

Analysis: He seems to be on track to return for Sunday's home game against the Bills, where he'll likely retake the starting No. 2 job from Demarcus Robinson.
11/22/2017 Leonard Fournette, Jax, RB
Fournette was limited in practice Wednesday, but remains on track to play Sunday in Arizona.

Analysis: Fournette knows his ankle may both him all season, but he still topped 100 yards last week against the Browns.
11/22/2017 Dan Bailey, Dal, K
Bailey (groin) is active Thursday against the Chargers for the first time since getting hurt in Week 7.

Analysis: One of the game's top kickers being in means Mike Nugent is inactive.
11/22/2017 Zach Brown, Was, LB
Brown is questionable for Thursday's game against the Giants with an Achilles injury.

Analysis: Brown is the league's leading tackler. He's been limited in practice but should be good enough to play on Thanksgiving.
11/22/2017 Anthony Hitchens, Dal, LB
Hitchens is questionable for Thursday's game against the Chargers because of a groin injury.

Analysis: The fourth-year pro has become an even more important part of the defense with star linebacker Sean Lee sidelined. Hitchens has 36 tackles in six games.
11/22/2017 Samaje Perine, Was, RB
Perine is listed as questionable for a Thanksgiving matchup with the Giants because of a finger injury.

Analysis: Though this is something to keep an eye on because Perine has been limited in practice, he is expected to play and be the every-down back now that Chris Thompson is out.
11/22/2017 Olivier Vernon, NYG, DE
Vernon (shoulder) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Redskins.

Analysis: He has missed time with an ankle problem, then hurt his shoulder on Sunday. Vernon has two sacks in six games.
11/22/2017 Jordan Reed, Was, TE
Reed won't play Thursday against the Giants, the fourth straight game he's missed with a hamstring injury.

Analysis: Reed has 27 catches for 211 yards and two touchdowns this season in five games.
11/22/2017 Tevin Coleman, Atl, RB
Coleman should start this week with Devonta Freeman reportedly still in concussion protocol.

Analysis: Coleman only had 43 yards on 20 carries against the Seahawks, though perhaps he'll find things better against the Bucs.
11/22/2017 Devonta Freeman, Atl, RB
Freeman remains in the concussion protocol and is unlikely to return Sunday against the Bucs, but he did return to practice Thursday on a limited basis.

Analysis: This would mean another start for Tevin Coleman if Freeman sits out again, so plan accordingly. Freeman is listed as questionable.
11/22/2017 Jay Cutler, Mia, QB
Cutler did some light throwing Thursday as he remains in concussion protocol, but he hasn't been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Analysis: Coach Adam Gase declined to say whether he would consider starting Cutler even if the veteran doesn't get in a full practice.
11/22/2017 Nathan Peterman, Buf, QB
Peterman is back on the bench this week after his five-interception debut.

Analysis: If you were reading this looking for advice on whether you should play Nathan Peterman in a fantasy league, you've already lost.
11/22/2017 Tyrod Taylor, Buf, QB
Taylor is the Bills' starter again this week at Kansas City after Nathan Peterman's disastrous debut.

Analysis: Taylor should be extra motivated to play well this week and Kansas City's pass defense was in bad shape until facing Eli Manning and a stiff breeze last week.
