NFL injury report, Week 10: E.J. Manuel, Jay Cutler to return

Seahawks vs. Falcons

Seattle will be without the contributions of defensive tackle Red Bryant, who is listed as out for Sunday, although the Seahawks should have Marshawn Lynch ready to go, as the running back is listed as questionable.

The Falcons have been without the contributions of receiver Roddy White since Week 5, but he might be ready for Week 10. After limited participation in practice, White is listed as questionable for Sunday and told reporters that he will play. Also questionable for Atlanta are Peria Jerry, Sam Baker, Stephen Nicholas and Corey Peters.

Bengals vs. Ravens

Keepers Week 10

Matt Ufford offers you fantasy advice on Aaron Rodgers, finding a sub for Jamaal Charles and more.

Rookie running back Giovani Bernard garnered a lot of attention for his Week 9 performance, and it appears as if he'll be ready to go in Week 10, although he's listed as questionable. Also listed as questionable is tight end Jermaine Gresham, who appears less likely to play.

Cornerbacks Jimmy Smith and Corey Graham are both listed as questionable for the Ravens, who enter Sunday without many significant injuries. Also questionable are linebacker Daryl Smith and wide receiver Brandon Stokley.

Lions vs. Bears

The Lions will be without wide receiver Nate Burleson, who has been ruled out with an arm injury, but that just means more targets for Calvin Johnson, who is listed as probable for Sunday.

For the Bears, all eyes will be on the return of Jay Cutler, who participated fully in practice this week and is listed as probable to return from his groin injury. Unlikely to play on Sunday is defensive end Shea McClellin, who is suffering from a hamstring problem and is listed as doubtful, which is a big blow to the already-struggling Bears defense.

Eagles vs. Packers

Quarterback Michael Vick is doubtful for Sunday's game as he continues to deal with nagging hamstring issues, although he likely wouldn't have started ahead of Nick Foles anyway after Foles' record performance in Week 9.

The health of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is one of the biggest injury stories of the year, and he is obviously ruled out for Sunday, just a few days removed from suffering a shoulder injury against the Chicago Bears on Monday night. Expected to contribute, though, is linebacker Clay Matthews, who is recovering from thumb surgery earlier in the season.

Rams vs. Colts

The most important player on the Rams offense with Sam Bradford still out of the lineup is certainly running back Zac Stacy, who should be ready to go against the Colts despite practicing on a limited basis. Listed as probable, Stacy is expected to be the centerpiece of the St. Louis offense.

Indianapolis also has an injured running back in Trent Richardson, who is listed as questionable for Sunday with an ankle injury. However, Richardson seems more likely to play than not. Greg Toler, Josh Chapman, Josh Gordy and Delano Howell have all been ruled out.

Raiders vs. Giants

Running back Darren McFadden did not participate in practice all week and is unsurprisingly out for Sunday as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury. Ready to go, though, is kicker Sebastian Janikowski, who is listed as probable against the Giants.

For New York, the concern will be in the secondary where there are multiple injuries. Cornerback Corey Webster is out for the game, while Trumaine McBride and Jayron Hosley are both listed as questionable for the team. Terrell Thomas is also listed on the injury report, but he is probable for Sunday.

Bills vs. Steelers

The Bills are expected to finally have rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel back from injury, after the first rounder sat out of the lineup since Week 5 with a knee injury. Listed as probable, Manuel will be backed up by Thad Lewis, who is also listed as probable for the game.

Pittsburgh should have all of its major contributors ready to go in Week 10, including the return of wide receiver Markus Wheaton. The rookie sat out the last four games with a finger injury, but is listed as probable after participating fully in practice.

Jaguars vs. Titans

The Jaguars have several key contributors on their injury report, but the biggest playmakers on the team are all expected to play in Week 10. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew and wide receiver Cecil Shorts, the team's top two offensive threats, are both listed as probable.

Tennessee has four players listed as questionable for Sunday, but the biggest loss is linebacker Moise Fokou who has been listed out for the game. Although he returned to practice on Thursday, Fokou will not play and will be replaced in the starting lineup by Colin McCarthy.

Panthers vs. 49ers

There is no injury mystery for the Panthers, as only three players are listed on the injury report and all three are ruled out for Sunday. The team announced on Friday that Chase Blackburn, James Dockery and Chris Scott will not play on Sunday.

For the 49ers, it'll be another week without Mario Manningham, as the receiver again did not appear on the team's injury report and remains off the team's active roster. Four-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Justin Smith did appear on the injury report and is listed as questionable.

Texans vs. Cardinals

Running back Arian Foster will sit out Sunday's game against the Cardinals and is hopeful that he won't miss the remainder of the year due to his back injury. Also out for the Texans is linebacker Mike Mohamed, while the rest of the team's injury report features 11 players listed as probable.

Arizona's injury report is relatively light, as only four players appear, and three are listed as probable. Matt Shaughnessy, Daryl Washington and John Abraham are all expected to play, and offensive tackle Bradley Sowell is listed as questionable after missing practice with an illness.

Broncos vs. Chargers

Cornerback Champ Bailey sat out another week of practice after reaggravating a foot injury that kept him out of the first five weeks of the season, as the veteran cornerback is ruled out for another game. The rest of the Broncos injury report features 11 players listed as probable and Duke Ihenacho listed as questionable.

For the Chargers, wide receiver Eddie Royal and defensive end Lawrence Guy are both questionable for Sunday. Royal has played in each of the last two weeks despite being listed as questionable, so he should be ready to make it three weeks in a row with a game against the Broncos.

Cowboys vs. Saints

Outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware is expected to return to the lineup for the Cowboys after sitting out for a month. Listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Saints, Ware should see the field for the first time since Week 6. The Cowboys don't expect Miles Austin to be ready, listing the veteran receiver as doubtful.

New Orleans will try to stop the Cowboys with injuries in their secondary, as three safeties are listed on the team's injury report. Both Roman Harper and Malcolm Jenkins are listed as questionable, and rookie first-round pick Kenny Vaccaro is listed as probable.
