Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs is "questionable" and will be a game-time decision with a torn right biceps. After missing the offseason workout program, OTAs, minicamp, training camp, preseason and the first six games of the regular season while recovering from a torn Achilles tendon, Suggs has 19 tackles, two sacks,  five hits on opposing quarterbacks and four passes defensed in 324 defensive snaps. The Ravens have already ruled out tight end Ed Dickson (knee) and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (ankle) and cornerback Jimmy Smith is "doubtful" following surgery to repair a sports hernia. The Washington Redskins listed left tackle Trent Williams (thigh), linebacker London Fletcher (ankle) and cornerback DeAngelo Hall (ankle/knee) as "questionable". Both Williams and Fletcher were "questionable" last week, but played in Monday night's 17-16 win over the Giants.

The Pittsburgh Steelers ruled linebacker LaMarr Woodley, cornerback Ike Taylor, and second round right tackle Mike Adams out for Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers with ankle injuries. The Steelers will have quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who missed the three previous games with a sprained sternoclavicular joint in his right shoulder. Three-fifths of the Chargers' current offensive line are on the injury report, with right tackle Jeromey Clary (knee) ruled out and left guard Tyronne Green "doubtful" with a hamstring injury. Undrafted rookie left tackle Mike Harris is "questionable" with an ankle injury.

Five Green Bay Packers have been ruled out, including linebacker Clay Matthews and wide receiver Jordy Nelson, who have hamstring injuries. Nelson will lose a $12,500 "per game active" roster bonus, which is nothing compared to what safety Charles Woodson will lose by missing a sixth game with a broken collarbone. Woodson's "per game active" roster bonuses are worth $62,500, which means he'll lose out on $375,000. Packers defensive end Mike Neal is "doubtful" with a shoulder injury, while guard/tackle T.J. Lang is "questionable" with an ankle. Both have an opportunity to play against the Detroit Lions on Sunday night.

Lions safety Louis Delmas missed practice on Friday and is "questionable" for the Packers game with a knee injury. Even if Delmas does suit up, he'll likely play a limited role, perhaps exclusively taking the field in passing situations. Lions defensive tackle Corey Williams missed practice on Friday, as well, and while he's listed as "questionable", he's a game-time decision on Sunday night. Four other Lions listed as questionable — left tackle Jeff Backus (hamstring), defensive tackle Nick Fairley (quadriceps), cornerbacks Chris Houston (ankle) and Jacob Lacey (foot/Achilles) — are expected to be available against the Packers.

After already ruling out middle linebacker Brian Urlacher (hamstring), the Chicago Bears will be without starting cornerback Tim Jennings, who has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings due to a shoulder injury he sustained while attempting to tackle Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson in overtime of last Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss. Bears wide receiver Earl Bennett will miss the Vikings' game with a concussion. Though the Vikings are hardly healthy after placing wide receiver/return specialist Percy Harvin, the entirety of their 53-man roster should be available as eight players are listed as "probable".

Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Jay Ratliff has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals with a groin injury. Ratliff's absence could aide in BenJarvus Green-Ellis' attempt for a fourth straight 100-yard game, which could put him over the 1,000-yard mark on the season. The Bengals ruled out first round cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick out with a concussion and kicker Mike Nugent is unlikely to play due to a right calf injury. The Bengals signed kicker Josh Brown on Thursday to step in for Nugent.

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks has a sore left knee that has him listed as "questionable" for Sunday afternoon's game against the New Orleans Saints. Nick missed three games earlier this season, in part, to swelling in the same knee earlier this season. Safety Kenny Phillips is "doubtful" after aggravating a knee injury that cost him six games this season. The Saints have ruled out No. 3 offensive tackle Charles Brown (knee), while rookie cornerback Corey White will miss a fourth game with a knee injury of his own. White, a fifth round pick out of Samford, had averaged over 62 snaps per game over the first eight games of the season.

New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller is "doubtful" with an ankle injury, but the 2008 first round pick out of Purdue is not expected to play against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

"Yeah, and it doesn't look like (he's going to play)," head coach Rex Ryan said via Jane McManus of ESPN New York. "I say it's doubtful whether he goes and you guys know me, doubtful generally means that he's not going. It's unfortunate, but this is like the sixth time this season that we haven't had Dustin."

Jets nose tackle Sione Po'uha (back) and No. 2 quarterback/personal punt protector Tim Tebow (ribs) are "questionable" for the game against the Jaguars, who ruled six players out, including running backs Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) and Rashad Jennings (concussion). Wide receiver Cecil Shorts will also miss the Jets game with a concussion.

Seattle Seahawks nickel cornerback Marcus Trufant will miss a second consecutive game due to a hamstring injury. With Brandon Browner beginning his four-game suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy, the Seahawks will start Walter Thurmond opposite Richard Sherman and use rookie Jeremy Lane in nickel packages against the Arizona Cardinals. For the Cardinals, quarterback Kevin Kolb (ribs) is listed as "questionable," but is not expected to dress as John Skelton will start while Ryan Lindley backs him up. Defensive end Calais Campbell (calf), wide receiver Andre Roberts (ankle) and running back Beanie Wells (knee) are "questionable."

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Mario Manningham is "doubtful" with a shoulder injury. The free agent signee from the Giants is second on the 49ers with 41 receptions and his 77 percent catch rate is tops among receivers with 42 or more targets. If Manningham is unable to play, he'll lose another "per game active" roster bonus worth $15,625. For the Miami Dolphins, nickel defensive back Jimmy Wilson is "questionable" with a hip injury. R.J. Stanford would step into that role if Wilson is unable to play.

St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola is "questionable" with a foot injury that limited him to a handful of snaps in a 31-17 win over the Cardinals in Week 12 and had inactive for last Sunday's 16-13 overtime win over the 49ers. Amendola will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills, who ruled out center Eric Wood and defensive end Mark Anderson with knee injuries. Six Bills are "questionable," including wide receiver Stevie Johnson, who has a hamstring injury.

The Atlanta Falcons listed four players as "questionable," including running back Michael Turner (elbow), cornerback Asante Samuel (shoulder) and safety William Moore (hamstring). Samuel and Moore did not practice at all this week and their playing status against the Carolina Panthers will likely be determined on Sunday morning. The Panthers will likely be without running back Jonathan Stewart, who is "doubtful" with an ankle injury. Five Panthers are "questionable", including wide receiver Brandon LaFell (toe), defensive tackle Dwan Edwards (wrist), linebacker James Anderson (eye/back) and safety Charles Godfrey (back).

Seven Kansas City Chiefs were listed as "questionable," including left tackle Branden Albert (back) and left guard Jeff Allen (illness), linebacker Derrick Johnson (hamstring), cornerback Brandon Flowers (hamstring) and safety Eric Berry (hand/illness). Ten Cleveland Browns are "probable."

As expected, the Philadelphia Eagles ruled quarterback Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy out with concussions, with Nick Foles and Bryce Brown getting the starts in their place. Defensive tackle Mike Patterson is out after being hospitalized with viral pneumonia. For the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, run-stopping defensive tackle Roy Miller returned to practice on Friday and is "questionable" with a head injury.

Tennessee Titans middle linebacker Colin McCarthy has a concussion and will miss Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Left tackle Michael Roos (knee) and defensive end Kamerion Wimbley (toe) are "questionable." The Colts ruled running back Donald Brown (ankle), safety Tom Zbikowski (knee) and left guard Joe Reitz, who has a concussion. Right tackle Winston Justice also has a concussion and is "questionable."
