Gameday Injuries: Wild-Card Round
Gameday Injuries: Wild-Card Round

This column is meant to offer our best predictions on what players will/will not play, as of 11 AM ET on Saturday. For the official active/inactive reports, please see our Latest NFL Player News.

The so-called "second season" kicks off in earnest Saturday afternoon in Houston with the Texans-Colts matchup, and four games are on tap overall in the Wild-Card round this weekend. The medical report is most populous at the receiver position, where several notable names are among the walking wounded. Without further ado, let's get to the latest pertinent health updates for your Fantasy postseason lineups:

QUARTERBACKS

The Eagles' Carson Wentz (back) will not suit up for Sunday's Wild Card showdown against the Bears, as expected. Nick Foles who'd suffered bruised ribs himself in the Week 17 win over the Redskins that helped clinch Philadelphia its playoff spot, doesn't carry an injury designation. Foles' three-game run as a starter to cap off the regular season consisted of 962 passing yards and a solid 6:3 TD:INT, so the defending champions' offense remains in good hands with the veteran at the controls. Naturally, Foles' postseason run last season was even more remarkable, as he completed 72.6 percent of his passes and averaged 9.16 yards per attempt while posting a 6:1 TD:INT over three games, including the Super Bowl. He'll have a tall order on his hands Sunday, however, given that the Bears allowed the third-fewest Fantasy points (14.88) to quarterbacks in standard scoring formats during the regular season.
