Eighteen things to know about Friday's injury report

DeSean Jackson's status for his return to Philadelphia remains up in the air. Jackson was listed as questionable on the Week 3 injury report with a shoulder injury. It sounds like he'll be a game-time decision after returning for a limited practice Friday.

Kirk Cousins will have fewer weapons than ideal whether Jackson plays or not. Tight end Jordan Reed is out again, as expected. 

Here are 17 more things to know from Friday's injury report:

  1. The Philadelphia Eagles ruled out linebacker Mychal Kendricks for Sunday's game against Washington. That means Casey Matthews could be on the field plenty, which is good news for the Redskins.
  1. Jacksonville Jaguars wide receivers Allen Hurns (ankle) and Cecil Shorts (hamstring) are both probable. Great news for a struggling offense.
  1. New York Giants linebacker Jon Beason (foot) is out of this week's game, according to NFL Media's Kimberly Jones.
  1. The Buffalo Bills will have Robert Woods (ankle, probable) available despite missing practice during the week.
  1. Cornerback Brandon Flowers (groin) is probable for the Chargers and is likely to start Sunday after missing last week.
  1. Baltimore Ravens running back Bernard Pierce (thigh) is questionable, but he practiced fully. He should play.
  1. Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan Cameron (shoulder) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable. Running back Ben Tate (knee) is out again.
  1. Dallas Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain's surprising season probably will hit a roadblock Sunday. He's doubtful with a groin injury. Dez Bryant (shoulder, questionable) is expected to play.
  1. Denver Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan (knee) surprisingly returned to practice this week and is questionable. Wes Welker is not even on the injury report.
  1. Three Detroit Lions defensive linemen are questionable: Ezekiel Ansah (knee), Nick Fairley (biceps) and George Johnson (groin).
  1. Indianapolis Colts wideout Hakeem Nicks (illness) is questionable after missing practice Thursday and Friday.
  1. Oakland Raiders running back Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is questionable, but it sounds like he'll play.
  1. Carson Palmer (shoulder, questionable) will be Drew Stanton's backup for the Arizona Cardinals even if he suits up.
  1. Vontaze Burfict (concussion) is doubtful to play for the Cincinnati Bengals. Wideout A.J. Green (foot) is probable after missing most of last week's game. 
  1. Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams (thigh) returned to practice Friday in a limited fashion, but he's far from a safe bet to play. 
  1. Bears starting receivers Brandon Marshall (ankle) and Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) are listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the New York Jets.
  1. Jets receiver Eric Decker (hamstring) is also listed as questionable.
