The Tampa Bay Buccaneers already know they’ll be without one starter versus the Giants on Monday Night Football. The status of two others won’t be clear for a couple more days.
Bucs coach Bruce Arians reiterated that the “arrow’s trending up” for tight end Rob Gronkowski as well as safety Sean Murphy-Bunting.
“We’ve got a couple game-time decisions,” Arians said.
Wideout Antonio Brown, who hasn’t played since Week 6 because of a lingering ankle injury, was again ruled out.
Gronk is listed as questionable. The former All-Pro tight end missed last week’s loss to Washington after suffering a back injury in the previous game, which marked his return from a four-game absence because of fractured ribs.
Murphy-Bunting, meanwhile, still needs to be activated from injured reserve to be cleared for action. The third-year safety is looking to return from a dislocated elbow suffered in Tampa Bay’s season opener.
“Sean has shown me he’s probably ready to go,” Arians said. “Getting him back’s one thing, playing 60 plays is another. We can’t overload him, but there are spots that if we get him back in there that he can help us, for sure, and gradually get his role back.”
Arians said wideout Scotty Miller (toe) could also be activated from IR depending on need. Defensive tackle Vita Vea (knee) is doubtful.
The Chiefs are getting one of their top weapons back this weekend ahead of a potential high-scoring affair. Clyde Edwards-Helaire was activated off injured reserve Saturday, clearing his path to play Sunday versus the Cowboys. The second-year RB has been sidelined since spraining his MCL in Week 5.
Lamar Jackson is still sick. And it’s left his status for Sunday’s game against the Bears in question. One day after being a full participant in practice, the Ravens QB was added to the injury report and listed as questionable with an illness.
The Eagles’ front office has kept busy of late building the team’s future. Its latest investment is in the secondary. Cornerback Avonte Maddox agreed to terms with Philadelphia on a three-year contract extension worth $22.5 million with $13.3 million guaranteed, Mike Garafolo reports.
Big Ben is back. The Steelers announced Saturday that QB Ben Roethlisberger has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list “after passing the NFL’s required” protocols. He’s expected to start Sunday night versus the Chargers.
Denver’s receiving corps includes a trio of notable names. A less-heralded target has emerged as the group’s fourth and now has a significant pay raise to show for it. The Broncos are signing Tim Patrick to a three-year contract extension worth up to $34.5 million with $18.5 million guaranteed, Tom Pelissero reports.
Chris Carson’s 2021 season will soon be finished. The running back is having season-ending neck surgery and will remain on injured reserve.
Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) will miss his second consecutive game after being ruled out for Sunday versus the Eagles on the team’s injury report. 
Lions quarterback Jared Goff is officially doubtful to play Sunday against the Browns. That designation sets up Tim Boyle to likely make his first NFL start.
Fresh off a dominant win over the Falcons, the Cowboys won’t have a go-to target for at least the next two games with WR Amari Cooper being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Rest didn’t help Khalil Mack’s foot injury. The star pass rusher is undergoing season-ending foot surgery and has been placed on injured reserve.
Kyler Murray will once again be a game-time decision for the Arizona Cardinals. Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Friday that the Cards would take it down to the wire with the MVP candidate, noting that Murray has to be able to protect himself from re-injuring his ankle to play Sunday against the Seahawks.
