Injuries: Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree set to play

Derek Carr is expected to have his full allotment of weapons available against the Chargers.

Despite Amari Cooper battling a shoulder injury and Michael Crabtree fighting through a finger injury, both Raiders receivers are expected to play, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.

Here are other injuries we're tracking early Sunday morning:

  1. As expected, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (calf) will play against the Bears, Rapoport reported. Though the Packers will have three quarterbacks active just in case Rodgers can't make it through the game.
  1. Ty Montgomery will get the start at running back for the Packers with James Starks (concussion) out, Rapoport reported.
  1. Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant popped up on the injury report with a back injury late this week, but Rapoport reported the big wideout is expected to play against the Buccaneers. Linebacker Sean Lee (knee) is also expected to play, Rapoport reported.
  1. Eagles receivers Jordan Matthews (ankle) and Dorial Green-Beckham (abdomen) are set to play vs. the Ravens. Both are active for Sunday's matchup.
  1. Vikings running back Adrian Peterson(knee) will start against the Colts.
  1. Jets quarterback Bryce Petty will undergo tests today to see if he has a punctured or otherwise injured lung. X-rays taken on his chest Saturday night were negative.
  1. Tight end Eric Ebron (knee), defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder), linebacker DeAndre Levy (knee) and cornerback Darius Slay (hamstring) are all active for the Lions. Running back Theo Riddick (wrist), however, is inactive.
  1. Chiefs pass rusher Justin Houston (illness, knee) is active and will play against the Titans.
  1. Patriots ight end Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder), cornerback Malcolm Butler (hip) and linebacker Dont'a Hightower (knee) are all expected to play against the Broncos, Rapoport reported.
  1. Bucs linebacker Lavonte David (hamstring) and defensive tackle Gerald McCoy (foot) are both expected to play against the Cowboys, Rapoport reported.
  1. Bengals receiver A.J. Green (hamstring) is iinactive versus the Steelers.
  1. Ryan Tannehill's status for the rest of the season is "very uncertain," Rapoport reported. The Dolphins quarterback had his injured knee in a cast on the sideline during the Dolphins' win over the Jets on Saturday night.
  1. Bills GM Doug Whaley told the Bills' official website that wideout Sammy Watkins (foot), who is listed as active against the Browns, has been playing well despite his injured state.

"We've been pleasantly surprised," Whaley said. "Obviously he's not 100 percent, but an 80-90 percent Sammy looks pretty good to me. And I'm sure everybody would agree.

  1. Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams (knee) was removed from the injury report earlier this week and practiced fully, but is inactive for Sunday's tilt against Bengals.
