Greg Olsen, Dont'a Hightower AP

Over the course of the week, there are a lot of posts about the most prominent injured players but we know that you might not see all of them and that some others may fall through the cracks. As a result, we’ll comb through all the injury reports every Friday afternoon so that there’s one stop for all the news from every team playing on Sunday. In Week 17, that’s all 32 teams so, without further delay, the final injury report roundup of the regular season.

Saints at Falcons

Wide receiver Marques Colston (chest), linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (hip) and offensive lineman Andrus Peat (concussion) will not play for the Saints. Tackle Terron Armstead (knee) is questionable. Falcons running back Tevin Coleman (concussion) remains out after his ill-fated shower tumble and the Falcons’ 53-man roster is otherwise in good shape for the final game of the year.

Jets at Bills

Tackle Breno Giacomini (ankle) and running back Bilal Powell (ankle) are both questionable and Powell missed practice all week. The Bills will try to spoil the Jets’ playoff hopes without the help of linebacker Nigel Bradham (ankle) and running back LeSean McCoy (knee).

Lions at Bears

Lions center Travis Swanson (shoulder) won’t play and defensive end Jason Jones (neck, doubtful) is expected to miss the game as well. Running back Ameer Abdullah (shoulder) and wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) are listed as questionable and expected to play. Center Hroniss Grasu (knee) and wide receiver Eddie Royal (illness) are doubtful for the Bears. Running back Matt Forte (back) is questionable, but expressed no doubt about what could be his final game for the franchise.

Ravens at Bengals

Linebacker Albert McClellan (ankle) is questionable for the Ravens and the rest of the current roster is healthy for Week 17. Quarterback Andy Dalton (right thumb) and tight end Ryan Hewitt (knee, illness) won’t play for the Bengals, but tight end Tyler Eifert (concussion) is expected back in the lineup and quarterback AJ McCarron (left wrist) is probable.

Steelers at Browns

Wide receiver Martavis Bryant (illness) and cornerback Doran Grant (groin) are questionable to play in a must-win game for the Steelers. Quarterback Johnny Manziel (concussion), wide receiver Marlon Moore (concussion), cornerback Tramon Williams (concussion) and running back Glenn Winston (concussion) are all out for the Browns. Tackle Joe Thomas (knee) is questionable, but his consecutive games and snaps streaks are expected to continue.

Redskins at Cowboys

The Redskins ruled out cornerback Quinton Dunbar (quadricep) and safety Dashon Goldson (shoulder, rib). Running back Matt Jones (hip) and linebacker Perry Riley (foot) are doubtful to play and five regulars — cornerback DeAngelo Hall (calf), defensive end Jason Hatcher (neck, knee), wide receiver DeSean Jackson (knee), running back Pierre Thomas (knee) and tackle Trent Williams (knee, foot) — are questionable. Dallas rookie guard La’El Collins (ankle) is doubtful while cornerback Morris Claiborne (hamstring) and linebacker Sean Lee (hamstring) are questionable.

Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon (knee) will miss the final game of his rookie season. Defensive tackle Abry Jones (knee) and linebacker Telvin Smith (shoulder) are going to miss the game as well. Texans quarterback Brian Hoyer (concussion) is set to return to the lineup, but linebacker Jadeveon Clowney (foot) and wide receiver Cecil Shorts (hamstring) won’t play.

Titans at Colts

The season is already over for Titans tackle Taylor Lewan (concussion), quarterback Marcus Mariota (knee) and wide receiver Kendall Wright (knee). The same is true for Colts linebacker Trent Cole (concussion), quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder, rib) and quarterback Andrew Luck (abdomen, kidney) unless a perfect storm of results lifts Indy into the playoffs.

Patriots at Dolphins

Cornerback Justin Coleman (concussion), wide receiver Julian Edelman (foot), linebacker Jonathan Freeny (hand), linebacker Dont’a Hightower (knee), defensive end Chandler Jones (abdomen, toe) and tackle Sebastian Vollmer (ankle) will all sit out for the Patriots.

Eagles at Giants

Eagles interim coach Pat Shurmur won’t have wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu (ankle), defensive tackle Bennie Logan (calf) and cornerback Byron Maxwell (shoulder) in the lineup for a finale between disappointing clubs. The Giants will go without safety Craig Dahl (concussion), tackle Marshall Newhouse (concussion) and safety Cooper Taylor (concussion). Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (ankle) is questionable.

Seahawks at Cardinals

It’s another game without running back Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) for the Seahawks. Guard J.R.

Safety Kam Chancellor (pelvis) is questionable. Wide receiver Michael Floyd (knee), linebacker Dwight Freeney (knee), safety Rashad Johnson (ankle, illness) and defensive tackle Frostee Rucker (ankle) are questionable for the Cardinals after getting in limited practices on Friday. Linebacker Markus Golden (knee) and defensive tackle Josh Mauro (calf) are out.

Buccaneers at Panthers

The Buccaneers placed safety Chris Conte (knee) on injured reserve Friday, leaving them with no one listed as anything other than probable. Running backs Jonathan Stewart (foot) and Fozzy Whittaker (ankle) are out for Carolina. Wide receiver Ted Ginn (knee) and safety Kurt Coleman (foot) are likely out after being listed as doubtful.

Chargers at Broncos

Offensive line injuries have been a constant for the Chargers this season and Week 17 brings more of the same. Guard Orlando Franklin (concussion) is out, tackle King Dunlap (ankle) is doubtful and tackle Chris Hairston (abdomen) and center Trevor Robinson (concussion, shoulder) are questionable. Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (foot) is probable and expected to back up Brock Osweiler on Sunday. Linebacker Brandon Marshall (ankle) and safety T.J. Ward (ankle) are questionable.

Raiders at Chiefs

Cornerbacks D.J. Hayden (ankle) and Neiko Thorpe (neck) are questionable for the Raiders. Safety Charles Woodson (shoulder) is probable for his final NFL contest.

He’s listed as questionable, as are safety Husain Abdullah (concussion), linebacker Tamba Hali (thumb, knee) and tackle Jah Reid (knee).

Rams at 49ers

Rams running back Todd Gurley (foot) is doubtful for the final game of a strong rookie season and tackle Andrew Donnal (knee) is questionable. 49ers defensive tackle Quinton Dial (back) and linebacker Michael Wilhoite (ankle) won’t play and center Marcus Martin (concussion) and safety Jaquiski Tartt (knee) are expected to join them on the inactive list after drawing doubtful tags.

Vikings at Packers

Vikings defensive tackle Linval Joseph (foot) is expected to miss the game after being listed as doubtful, but the Vikings are otherwise in good shape healthwise for Sunday night. Tackle David Bakhtiari (ankle), defensive tackle Mike Daniels (groin), linebacker Mike Neal (hip), defensive tackle B.J. Raji (concussion) and cornerback Sam Shields (concussion) are questionable for the Packers, who didn’t practice Friday and often update the status of players after a Saturday workout.

    Frauds vs. Dolphins should be boring. Hopefully Suh can do America a favor and permanently take out the crybaby with hair plugs. That cheater doesn’t deserve the privilege of playoff football.

    Unfortunately for you I’m retired. If the rest of America is forced to tolerate cheating going unpunished and to listen to cheater apologists, then I’ll be here fighting the good fight. Better get used to me, boss.

    Seriously son, you need to get out of your mom’s house and get on with things. Angry and clueless are now way to go through life.

    @footballfan58 while venting on the internet is cathartic, please take it elsewhere. This year Brady and the Pats have been under intense scrutiny by the NFL. Look at the 10 million articles about teams taking extra precautions. None have turned up anything. So this year they are not cheaters. The legal pressure has made no impact on Brady’s stats. He is in the running (admittedly well behind Newton and Palmer) for MVP. Whine about last year? Okay you may have a case. This year? Not a chance.

    @dartmouthstevens: Excuse me?? Where have I ever “whined” about the Patriots? I am a lifelong, loyal fan and a lifelong native of New England. You have me confused with someone else. I accept your apology.

    This Injury Report is completely inaccurate- the entire Miami Dolphins roster should be listed as Questionable and all the miserable Fans as Doubtful 😩

    Hmmmm, so now Peyton is healthy enough to to play……..how long does it take for HGH to wash out of your system?

    You can always tell the biggest losers on these chat sites….they have the worst teams, aka the Dolphins.
