Dalvin Cook is back for the Minnesota Vikings from a one-game absence, his injured groin cleared to play in Green Bay.

Cook was hurt on Oct. 18 and benefited from extra rest during Minnesota's bye week. He was listed as questionable for Sunday but in the lineup for a team missing regular cornerbacks Holton Hill (foot) and Mike Hughes (neck), who were previously declared out. The Vikings did activate cornerback Cameron Dantzler from the COVID-19 reserve list on Saturday, with any and all help needed against Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams.

The high-scoring Packers will play without two of their most important offensive players. Running back Aaron Jones (calf) was previously declared out for the second straight game. Left tackle David Bakhtiari (chest) is on the inactive list after being listed as questionable, with Rick Wagner moving into the lineup at right tackle and Billy Turner switching to left tackle. Kicker Mason Crosby, who was also listed as questionable with calf and back injuries, is active for the game.

In Miami, with quarterback Tua Tagovailoa set for his first start, fellow rookie Malcolm Perry, a wide receiver/running back from Navy, is active and on track for his NFL debut with the Dolphins. The Los Angeles Rams will have tight end Tyler Higbee (hand) available, after listing him as questionable following his absence from the previous game.

The Baltimore Ravens will be without running back Mark Ingram (ankle) against Pittsburgh, after listing him as doubtful. Ingram was hurt in the last game and able to rest during the team's bye week but didn't recover in time. The Steelers have cornerback Mike Hilton (shoulder) on the inactive list.

The New England Patriots are short-handed against Buffalo with several injured starters, putting defensive tackle Lawrence Guy (ankle) on the inactive list after previously listing him as questionable. Cornerback Stephon Gilmore (knee) was previously ruled out and wide receiver Julian Edelman (knee) was placed on injured reserve on Saturday.

For the Bills, cornerback Levi Wallace (ankle) is back from injured reserve, but safety Micah Hyde (concussion) and cornerbacks Josh Norman and Cam Lewis are out. Lewis was placed on injured reserve on Saturday. Cornerback Dane Jackson and safety Josh Thomas were promoted from the practice squad and are active for the game. Jon Feliciano is active, on track to start at one of the guard spots after missing the past three months recovering from surgery for a torn pectoral muscle.

The New York Jets are playing at Kansas City without leading receivers Jamison Crowder, who had been doubtful with a groin injury, and Breshad Perriman, who remains in the concussion protocol after getting hurt last week and was already ruled out. They elevated Jaleel Scott from the practice squad to provide some depth. The Chiefs remain without wide receiver Sammy Watkins (hamstring) and right tackle Mitchell Schwartz (back), both of whom were previously ruled out.

The Las Vegas Raiders will again be without right tackle Trent Brown, who is ill and inactive for the game at Cleveland. Brown recently tested positive for COVID-19 and was activated from the reserve list on Friday. The Raiders said he wasn't feeling well before the game and that his absence was not COVID-related. Brown missed the previous game as well.

The Browns will again be without starting tight end Austin Hooper, who was previously declared out and missed the previous game after undergoing an appendectomy.

The Indianapolis Colts are at full strength coming off their bye week, with tight end Mo Alie-Cox and center Ryan Kelly in the lineup at Detroit after listing both starters as questionable with injuries. Pro Bowl linebacker Darius Leonard (groin) returns, too, after missing the previous two games.

Lions left tackle Taylor Decker, who was questionable with a shoulder injury, is active to protect quarterback Matthew Stafford’s blind side against one of the NFL’s best defenses. Cornerback Desmond Trufant is inactive with a hamstring injury for the third straight game and fifth this season.

In Cincinnati, rookie Joe Burrow will play against Tennessee behind an almost completely rebuilt offensive line. Left tackle Jonah Williams (stringer), left guard Michael Jordan (back), center Trey Hopkins (concussion) and right tackle Bobby Hart (knee) are all inactive because of injuries. Jordan was the only one who was not already ruled out on Friday. Cincinnati also deactivated starting running back Joe Mixon (foot) and disgruntled wide receiver John Ross.

Rookie Hakeem Adeniji gets his first start for the Bengals in place of Williams. Shaq Calhoun, recently activated from the practice squad, takes over for Jordan. Billy Price replaces Hopkins and Fred Johnson replaces Hart.
