We have an interesting injury landscape In Week 12 with no quarterbacks carrying designations. The running back group is fairly light on potential absences as well, although there are a couple of big names on that list. However, the wide receivers have plenty of walking wounded heading into game day, with the Giants and Titans set to be particularly short-handed.

Let's look at the latest as of early Sunday morning:

Week 12 Injuries
Week 12 Preview
Injury Report Update
Quarterbacks
Zach Wilson New York Jets QB
Wilson (knee) is off the injury report after recovering from his PCL sprain and will start Sunday's contest against the Texans. Wilson had shown some signs of improvement in his last two full games before his four-game absence, throwing for 489 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions against the Titans and Falcons. With Joe Flacco and Mike White both on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Josh Johnson will serve as Wilson's backup versus Houston.
Running Backs
Aaron Jones Green Bay Packers RB
Jones (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams after practicing in limited fashion all week. As per early Sunday reports, Jones is pushing to play but Green Bay is considering holding him out with a Week 13 bye on tap, and his status will come down to how he looks in pregame warmups. If Jones sits out, A.J. Dillon will continue to serve as the lead back.
Saquon Barkley New York Giants RB
Barkley (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles after practicing in limited fashion all week. As per early Sunday reports, Barkley, who handled 12 touches in his return to action against the Buccaneers on Monday night, is expected to suit up, with Devontae Booker serving as his backup.
Kareem Hunt Cleveland Browns RB
Hunt (calf) was activated from injured reserve Saturday after a five-game absence and is expected to play in Sunday night's divisional clash against the Ravens in his usual role alongside Nick Chubb.
Elijah Mitchell San Francisco 49ers RB
Mitchell (finger) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings after practicing in limited fashion all week. As per early Sunday reports, Mitchell has a pin inserted in his injured finger but is expected to play, with Jeff Wilson in line to work alongside him in complementary fashion.
Damien Harris New England Patriots RB
Harris (neck) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans after practicing in limited fashion all week. If Harris were to sit out, rookie Rhamondre Stevenson, who's questionable with a knee injury, would be in line for lead-back duties, while Brandon Bolden and J.J. Taylor would be set for much bigger roles should both players sit out.
Rhamondre Stevenson New England Patriots RB
Stevenson (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans after finishing the week with two limited practices.

Taylor would be in line for much bigger roles should both players sit out.
Cordarrelle Patterson Atlanta Falcons RB
Patterson (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars after practicing in limited fashion all week.

Michael Carter New York Jets RB
Carter (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, sidelining him for the next three games at minimum. Tevin Coleman and Ty Johnson are expected to head up New York's backfield in the interim beginning with Sunday's game against the Texans.

Corey Davis New York Jets WR
Davis (groin) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Texans after sandwiching a pair of limited practices around a missed Thursday session this week.
