The evolution of the NFL:
Take a look at how the NFL has evolved from its humble roots, and the efforts being made to ensure it continues to grow.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported on NFL GameDay First on Sunday morning that those close to running back Marshawn Lynch expect him to play against the Kansas City Chiefs with a calf injury. The team later announced that the running back is officially active. 

"Marshawn Lynch is basically a tank, expect him to play today and expect them to give him the ball a lot as they've done recently," Rapoport reported Sunday on NFL GameDay First.

This meshes with NFL Media's Albert Breer's reporting from Arrowhead Stadium, where teammates expect the running back to be fine in a pivotal matchup with playoff implications for both teams.

Lynch was officially listed as questionable.

Seattle's running back will have to do work without guard James Carpenter, who was ruled inactive with his ankle injury.

Fortunately for the Seahawks' defense, safety Kam Chancellor (groin) is active after skipping two games.

What other injuries are we tracking?

1. As Rapoport reported earlier Sunday, the Lions will be without Reggie Bush against the Cardinals.

2. Falcons wide receivers Devin Hester (ankle) and Harry Douglas are expected to play against the Panthers.

3. Anthony Fasano is inactive for the Chiefs with a knee injury.

4. Bengals cornerback Terence Newman (knee) is inactive against Drew Brees and the Saints. Offensive tackle Andre Smith is inactive, too.

5. After leaving last week's game but returning with a knee injury, Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis (knee) is active.

6. Running back Montee Ball returns to the Broncos after his Week 5 groin injury.

7. Niners cornerback Tramaine Brock is inactive with a bum hamstring.

8. The Buccaneers will miss cornerback Alterraun Verner (hamstring) and running back Doug Martin (ankle). Crezdon Butler starts in Verner's place. Defensive end Michael Johnson is in after being questionable with a hand injury.

9. With linebacker Jacquian Williams out, the Giants will start Mark Herzlich.
