  • WR T.Y. Hilton and WR Phillip Dorsett of the Indianapolis Colts assuming CB Kareem Jackson of the Houston Texans misses the Sunday Night game (game time decision).
  • QB Matthew Stafford, WR Marvin Jones, and WR Anquan Boldin of the Detroit Lions as 75% of the Rams starting defensive line will be a game time decision and CB Trumaine Johnson has been ruled out.
