Poyer is listed as questionable with an elbow injury, but was a full participant in practice on Friday. Elam is questionable as well due to an ankle injury, but he was a full participant on both Thursday and Friday. In what is good news for Buffalo, star quarterback Josh Allen carries no injury designation into this weekend with his elbow issue. He was a “limited participant” in practice all week.

Baker Mayfield returns to the starting lineup for the Panthers this week and Walker won’t even suit up, as he has been ruled out with an ankle injury.

Neither player practiced all week. Second-year cornerback Horn is questionable to play due to a foot injury, but he was a full participant in practice on both Thursday and Friday.
Jackson is listed as questionable as he sat out of Friday practice with an illness. Head coach John Harbaugh expects him to play.

- Chargers: K Dustin Hopkins (right hamstring) DOUBTFUL; WR Keenan Allen (hamstring), TE Gerald Everett (groin), WR Mike Williams (ankle) QUESTIONABLE
Allen and Williams were both limited on Wednesday and Thursday before being full practice participants on Friday. Chargers coach Brandon Staley said that both players would be game-time decisions.
Lammons and Smith-Schuster are out, but the other four players who appeared on the Chiefs’ midweek injury report will face the Chargers. Running back Jerick McKinnon (hamstring/shoulder) and cornerback L’Jarius Sneed (knee) where limited all week. Wideout Marquez Valdes-Scantling (illness) was a full participant on Friday after being limited on Thursday and not practicing on Wednesday.
San Francisco 49ers (-8) at Arizona Cardinals (Monday)
- 49ers: DL Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) OUT; DL Samson Ebukam (quadricep, Achilles) QUESTIONABLE
- Cardinals: TE Zach Ertz (knee), T D.J. Humphries (back), CB Byron Murphy (back) OUT; G Max Garcia (shoulder), WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring), QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) QUESTIONABLE
The 49ers will be without Armstead for the sixth consecutive game due to foot and ankle injuries. He did not practice all week, so his status for Week 11 isn’t ultimately that surprising. Meanwhile, Ebukam returned to practice on Friday and was a limited participant on Saturday. After missing Friday’s session due to a personal matter, Charvarius Ward returned to practice on Saturday and is expected to start.
Both Murray and Hopkins were limited participants in practice on Saturday and are officially listed as questionable for Monday’s matchup in Mexico. Murray missed last week’s game due to a hamstring injury but was able to practice on a limited basis all week, which suggests he has a shot to play this week. If Murray is ultimately held out, Colt McCoy would get the start again under center.
