Lamar Jackson, Ravens — ACTIVE
Jackson (illness) was “fine” on Friday and is expected to play against the Lions, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport .
Update: Jackson will play.
Tua Tagovailoa, Dolphins — OUT
Tagovailoa (rib) was ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Raiders after sustaining an injury in the first quarter last week against the Bills. Jacoby Brissett will start in his place. Tagovailoa was placed on injured reserve on Saturday, which will keep him out for at least three weeks.
Carson Wentz, Colts — ACTIVE
Wentz (ankles) is expected to start against the Titans, according to Rapoport . The team has contingency plans if he can’t play, Rapoport said, but Wentz will “give it a go.” He practiced on Friday.
Dalvin Cook, Vikings — OUT
Cook (ankle) did not participate in Friday’s practice. It’s “unlikely” that he plays against the Seahawks, according to a report from Schefter. He left the game last week early with an injury but ultimately returned.
Update: Cook has been ruled out.
D’Andre Swift, Lions — ACTIVE
Swift (groin) was a full participant in Saturday’s practice but remains questionable heading into the game against the Ravens.
Update: Swift will play.
Josh Jacobs, Raiders — OUT
Jacobs (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. If he doesn't play, he will miss his second straight game.
Update: Jacobs is inactive.
Darrell Henderson Jr., Rams — OUT
Henderson (ribs) is unlikely to play against the Buccaneers. Sony Michel and Jake Funk will take carries in the Rams backfield in his place.
Update: Henderson has been ruled out.
Trey Sermon, 49ers — QUESTIONABLE
Sermon (concussion) is expected to play on Sunday against the Packers. He fumbled and was ruled out for the remainder of last week’s game on his only carry.
Elijah Mitchell, 49ers — DOUBTFUL
Mitchell (shoulder) was injured in his start last week against the Eagles. Sermon is expected to take his place on Sunday.
JaMycal Hasty, 49ers — OUT
Hasty (ankle) was placed on injured reserve, which takes him out of Sunday’s game against the Packers and sidelines him for a few weeks.
Rashaad Penny, Seahawks — OUT
Penny (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Vikings and will miss his second consecutive game.
DeAndre Hopkins, Cardinals — ACTIVE
Hopkins (ribs) did not practice Friday. According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter , a source is “pretty confident he will play” but it’s not a guarantee.
Update: Hopkins will play against the Jaguars.
Diontae Johnson, Steelers — OUT
Johnson (knee) was ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Bengals. He was injured on the final play of last week’s loss to the Raiders.
Jarvis Landry, Browns — OUT
Landry (knee) was injured in last week’s game and was placed on injured reserved, which will keep him out against the Bears and for a few more weeks while he recovers.
Darnell Mooney, Bears — ACTIVE
Mooney (groin) was limited in practice this week. The second-year wideout leads the team in receiving through two games and could get a boost with Justin Fields making his first career start against the Browns.
Update: Mooney will play.
Antonio Brown, Buccaneers — OUT
Brown (COVID-19) did not travel with the Buccaneers to Los Angeles for the Rams game, according to Schefter. His status depended on him being asymptomatic for 24 hours and producing multiple negative COVID-19 tests prior to travel.
Jamison Crowder, Jets — DOUBTFUL
Crowder (groin) did not practice this week and the expectation is that he doesn’t make his season debut against the Broncos.

Brown (ankle) practiced Friday in a limited capacity. He was also listed as questionable heading into Week 2 with the same injury and ended up playing and continuing his strong start to the season.
Update: Brown will play against the Lions.
Russell Gage, Falcons — OUT
Gage (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Giants.
Tee Higgins, Bengals — OUT
Higgins (shoulder) is not expected to play against the Steelers, according to Schefter .
