Rivalry Week will result in some big wins and a lot of unemployed coaches. With the coaching carousel ready to go into full swing, here's the names and games to watch ahead of what should be a dark Sunday.
Alonso (knee) is active Sunday against the Dolphins.
Alonso will suit up for the Week 10 contest, but with DeMeco Ryans (hamstring) active as well, he may not see enough snaps to contribute reliable IDP productivity. He's safe to deploy for owners in a pinch, however.
Bradford (left shoulder, concussion) was a limited participant at Tuesday's practice.
Though he's still listed with both issues on the injury report, Bradford has already passed through the concussion protocol. His availability for Thursday's game against the Lions is still in serious question, as the injury to his left shoulder is a potential multi-week issue. If healthy, Bradford figures to start, given how poorly Mark Sanchez played in Sunday's blowout loss to Tampa Bay.
Ertz (concussion) will not play in Thursday's game against the Lions, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Ertz was quickly cleared to participate in team meetings, which suggests he has a good chance to be ready for Week 13. However, with the Eagles facing a short turnaround ahead of a Thanksgiving contest, Ertz simply doesn't have enough time to make it through the NFL's concussion protocol. His absence will likely leave more snaps and targets for Brent Celek, with Trey Burton serving as the No. 2 tight end.
Mathews (concussion) was a non-participant at Tuesday's practice.
Mathews reportedly hasn't made much progress in the NFL's concussion protocol, making him a long shot to suit up for Thursday's game against the Lions. Assuming Mathews misses another game, his snaps and touches will go to some combination of DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner. None of the three gets a big boost.
Ryans (hamstring) is active Sunday against the Dolphins.
Ryans will suit up for the first time since Week 6, but with a healthy linebacking corps in Philadelphia, his exact role will be a bit unclear. The 31-year-old has 23 combined tackles so far this year, but has made his presence known with both an interception and fumble recovery.
Amukamara (pectoral) said he is ready to return for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports.
This isn't exactly surprising, after Amukamara managed limited practices leading up to the two games before the Giants' bye week. He'll likely return to full participation at some point this week, pushing Jayron Hosley back to a second-team role.
Donnell (neck) will not practice Wednesday, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.
Donnell was cleared by team doctors to resume football activities Monday, so it's somewhat surprising to see the Giants list him as inactive on their pre-practice report. His game-time status should gain more clarity as the week progresses, so fantasy owners should check back in closer to Friday for more information.
49ers cornerback Leon McFadden is questionable to return to Saturday's Week 16 game against the Chargers due to a head injury, the team announced. McFadden had yet to record a tackle in Saturday's game at the time of his injury.
Unga (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Jasper Brinkley will step in at middle linebacker, but he didn't get much playing time in nickel packages last week, so he isn't a recommended IDP option for Sunday's game against the Patriots. Unga won't necessarily have an every-down role once he's healthy.
