Injuries are a mainstay in the NFL, and they've already wrecked several teams entirely this season (looking at you, Dallas Cowboys). Which teams are healthy entering Week 11, however? And which banged-up players have a chance of suiting up for this weekend's action? We've got you covered below with a full rundown of Wednesday practice reports, plus injury updates ahead of Thursday night's clash between the Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks.

Cardinals at Seahawks (-3)
- Cardinals: OL Justin Murray (hand), DL Corey Peters (knee), DL Jordan Phillips (hamstring) OUT; LB De'Vondre Campbell (calf), TE Darrell Daniels (ankle), S Charles Washington (groin), TE Maxx Williams (ankle) QUESTIONABLE
- Seahawks: CB Shaquill Griffin (hamstring), CB Quinton Dunbar (knee), C Ethan Pocic (concussion), G Jordan Simmons (calf) OUT; RB Travis Homer (wrist/knee/thumb) DOUBTFUL; RB Chris Carson (foot), G Kyle Fuller (ankle), WR Tyler Lockett (knee) QUESTIONABLE
With Phillips out, Angelo Blackson, a six-year veteran with one sack and 12 tackles this season, is slated to fill in at right defensive end. The only healthy tight end currently on the Cardinals' roster is Dan Arnold, who caught a career-high four passes for 34 yards in Arizona's 32-30 win over Buffalo.
Despite missing most of this week's practices, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expressed optimism when asked about Carson's possible status for Thursday night. The Seahawks will have running back Carlos Hyde, who missed the past three games with an injury. Carroll said that he does not think that there "is any doubt" that Lockett will play after having an encouraging practice on Wednesday.
Wednesday practice reports
Injury-wise, Cleveland is in decent shape, but right tackle Jack Conklin, kicker Cody Parkey and long snapper Charley Hughlett all landed on COVID-19 reserve Wednesday, throwing their status in question. Star pass rusher Myles Garrett also missed Wednesday's session with an illness.
Per usual, the Steelers' Wednesday practice did not include quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. Cornerback Mike Hilton (shoulder) was a full participant after missing Pittsburgh's last four games. Also practicing in full was rookie running back Anthony McFarland, who missed last Sunday's win over the Bengals with an illness.
Receiver Laviska Shenault (hamstring) and tight end James O'Shaughnessy (knee) were the only Jaguars players who missed Wednesday's practice due to injury. Jacksonville had 10 players practice in a limited capacity that included quarterback Gardner Minshew (right thumb), running back James Robinson (shoulder), rookie cornerback C.J. Henderson (groin) and defensive end Josh Allen (hip). Despite his progress, Minshew will not face the Steelers on Sunday.
Ravens starting offensive tackle Orlando Brown was limited on Wednesday. Defensive end Calais Campbell (calf), cornerback Jimmy Smith (ankle) and defensive tackle Brandon Williams (ankle) did not practice.
Among the Titans' nine players that did not practice on Wednesday include pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney (knee), receiver Adam Humphries (concussion) and cornerback Adoree' Jackson (knee). Receiver Corey Davis, who played last week despite the recent death of his older brother, missed practice Wednesday for personal reasons.
The Patriots did not have a single player miss practice on Wednesday. They did have 13 players practice in a limited capacity that included cornerback Stephon Gilmore (knee) and running back Damien Harris (ankle/chest). While Harris has proven to be an effective starter, his touches may be impacted this week if the Patriots activate Sony Michel, who hasn't played since Week 3.
The Texans were without running back Duke Johnson (illness), receiver Kenny Stills (back) and offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil (illness) on Wednesday. The Texans cannot afford to lose Johnson after the team placed David Johnson on injured reserve over the weekend.
Bengals at Washington (-1)
For the Bengals, running back Joe Mixon (foot) and defensive tackle Geno Atkins (personal reasons), who both missed Sunday's loss over the Steelers, did not practice on Wednesday. Cornerback Mackensie Alexander (concussion) was limited on Wednesday after he was unable to finish Cincinnati's Week 10 loss to the Steelers.
Washington did not have several starters practice Wednesday that includes receiver Dontrelle Inman (hamstring), left tackle Geron Christian (knee), and free safety Deshazor Everett (ankle). Each player was inactive during last Sunday's loss to Detroit.
Detroit didn't have wide receiver Danny Amendola (hip) at Wednesday's practice, but it did welcome back fellow pass catcher Kenny Golladay (hip), who's on track to return against the Panthers. Quarterback Matthew Stafford (thumb) suffered a partial ligament tear in Week 10, per NFL Network, but is fully expected to play.
Carolina won't have star running back Christian McCaffrey (shoulder) for a second straight week, with Mike Davis already declared the starter for Week 11. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (knee), meanwhile, was a limited participant Wednesday and remains a question mark for Sunday's game against Detroit, with Will Grier and P.J. Walker tabbed as emergency fill-ins.
Atlanta may or may not have wide receiver Calvin Ridley (foot) against New Orleans, as the pass catcher remained limited at Wednesday's practice.
The Saints will likely turn to former Buccaneers starter Jameis Winston at quarterback with Drew Brees (chest) reportedly set to miss at least two weeks as he recovers from fractured ribs and a punctured lung. Utility man Taysom Hill is officially also in the mix to take over, but Winston was the first man off the bench in Week 10.
Wide receiver Breshad Perriman (shoulder) was a limited participant for the Jets on Wednesday, leaving his status up in the air against Los Angeles. Left tackle Mekhi Becton (chest) is expected to suit up despite a Week 10 scare against the Patriots.
After missing out on a chance to take over for Myles Gaskin, Matt Breida (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday and could be in line to start at running back for Miami, especially with Jordan Howard now off the depth chart as well.
Denver likely won't know the status of quarterback Drew Lock (ribs) until later in the week, when the team plans to ramp up his participation in practice. No. 2 QB Brett Rypien would be in line to start in Lock's absence.
Rookie guard Ezra Cleveland (ankle) was the only Vikings player who missed Wednesday's practice due to injury. Tight end Irv Smith (groin), defensive tackle Hercules Mata'afa (ankle), center Garrett Bradbury (shoulder) and cornerback Cameron Dantzler (concussion) were limited.
The Cowboys, fresh off their Week 10 bye, only had two players miss practice due to injury: center Tyler Biadasz (hamstring) and defensive end Randy Gregory (illness). Guard Zack Martin (calf) was limited, while quarterback Andy Dalton (concussion) and running back Ezekiel Elliott (hamstring) were full participants.
Packers, receivers Davante Adams (ankle), Allen Lazard (core), Darrius Shepherd (shoulder) and Equanimeous St. Brown (shoulder) were limited. Adams is hoping to play on Sunday, but his progress should continued to be monitored over the next several days. The Packers will continue to evaluate the progress of Lazard, who was activated from injured reserve on Tuesday.
Cornerback Bopete Keyes (illness) and defensive end Taco Charlton (ankle) were the only Kansas City players that did not practice Wednesday. Offensive lineman Mike Remmers (rib) was limited, while defensive tackle Chris Jones (groin) and receiver Sammy Watkins (hamstring) were full participants.
The Raiders placed more than half of their starting defense on the team's reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday after defensive end Clelin Ferrell tested positive for the virus. As it relates to Wednesday's practice, running back Jalen Richard (chest) was the only Raiders player that did not participate. Safety Erik Harris (oblique), defensive Mauuice Hurst (ankle), fullback Alec Ingold (ribs) and offensive tackle Kolton Miller (ankle) were limited.
