      McDougald will start at strong safety if Kam Chancellor (neck) is out for Monday's game against the Falcons, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: McDougald filled in for Earl Thomas (hamstring) at free safety the past two weeks, notching nine tackles and one pass defensed. With Thomas expected to return and Chancellor expected to sit, McDouglad should have a few more tackle opportunities in a role that allows him to come up into the box. Chancellor has averaged at least 5.4 tackles per game every season since his rookie campaign in 2010. McDougald had similar production as a starter for Tampa Bay the past two seasons.

      Seahawks teammate Earl Thomas (hamstring) provided a strong hint that Chancellor (neck) isn't expected to play in Monday's game against the Falcons, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Chancellor missed Thursday's practice and isn't expected to take part Friday. Thomas is on track to return from an injury of his own, but the Seahawks still are likely to be without two standouts in the secondary -- Chancellor and Richard Sherman (Achilles) -- when they face the Falcons. Bradley McDougald could get another start at safety, this time replacing Chancellor instead of Thomas.

      Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said Friday that Lynch's performance during practice this week would dictate whether or not the quarterback is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Lynch has been inactive the entire season while recovering from an injury to his right shoulder that he originally suffered in training camp. That has allowed either current starter Brock Osweiler or Trevor Siemian to act as the top backup through the team's nine contests, but with Lynch having worked with the second unit in practice this week, it appears he could displace Siemian for those duties in Week 11. Osweiler hasn't been overly impressive in his two starts since displacing Siemian, so it's conceivable that Lynch could soon ascend to the top spot on the depth chart, particularly if the Broncos fade further from the playoff picture.

      Read Analysis

      Dial (chest) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Dial was a full participant in practice Wednesday through Friday, so despite getting the questionable tag for the Week 11 matchup, he seems likely to play. The nose tackle missed the Packers' previous two games with the injury.

      Burnett (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Burnett will be sidelined for a second straight game due to the groin issue he sustained in the Week 9 loss to the Lions, and the Packers haven't issued a timeline for his return. Josh Jones is expected to hold down a starting role at safety until Burnett is ready to play again.

      Vaccaro (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Washington, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Vaccaro started the week with a limited session, but was a non-participant Thursday and Friday. Vonn Bell started at strong safety in his absence against the Bills in Week 10 and would likely fill in again if Vaccaro is sidelined for a second consecutive week.

      Brooks (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Brooks followed up limited practices Wednesday and Thursday with a full session Friday, which should be enough for him to take the field Sunday. He was questionable heading into the Week 10 victory over the Bears, but ultimately suited up and played 28 snaps (27 on defense) in the contest, recording no tackles and one pass breakup.

      Fitzgerald's decision to sign a one-year extension doesn't necessarily mean he'll play in 2018, ESPN.com's Josh Weinfuss reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The one-year, $11 million deal, which includes a no-trade clause, simply ensures that Fitzgerald will stay in Arizona if he does indeed continue his career. It also hints that he plans to do so, but he could still opt for retirement in the offseason. As for the more immediate future, Sunday brings a road matchup against a Houston defense that has surrendered three straight 300-yard passing games. Blaine Gabbert will start at quarterback and may prove to be an upgrade from Drew Stanton (knee).

      Pryor (foot/ankle) admitted that he's worried about his status for the rest of the season, ESPN.com's John Keim reports. "I'm concerned," said Pryor. "I don't want to do surgery. [Dr. Robert Anderson] said the stuff he saw in there, he couldn't believe I was still playing on it. ... Hopefully they don't put me on [injured reserve] and I can come back and help them do something."

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Pryor originally suffered the injury Week 2 but wasn't listed on the injury report until Week 9. He's now saying it's been an issue all along, which raises some questions about whether player and team have made honest use of the injury reports. In any case, Pryor missed practice Thursday and Friday and has now been ruled out for Sunday's game in New Orleans. A recent MRI apparently was concerning, as he's scheduled to meet with Anderson on Monday in Charlotte. Given that he's already tumbled down the depth chart and is set to hit free agency again after the season, Pryor figures to prioritize his long-term health over his short-term availability.
