The first Sunday of the 2016 season is just around the corner, which means that it is time to catch up on all of the injuries that could impact this weekend’s games.
The injury report roundup will look a bit different this season. The NFL has abolished the probable designation for players who appeared on the practice report during the week and are considered certain to play on Sunday, leaving only questionable, doubtful and out.
Questionable players are uncertain to play, doubtful players are unlikely to play and out should be self-explanatory. Players who are on active rosters and don’t appear below should be considered in the lineup barring any announcements on Saturday. The teams playing on Monday night won’t release their injury reports until Saturday and are not listed here.
With that housekeeping out of the way, here are all the injury reports for Sunday.
Buccaneers at Falcons

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (knee), LB Elvis Dumervil (foot) and CB Jerraud Powers (ankle) are all out. TE Dennis Pitta (finger), G John Urschel (shoulder), TE Maxx Williams (knee) and CB Shareece Wright (foot) are questionable
