Injury roundup: Odell Beckham a game-time decision

Two days ago, there was little hope that New York Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham (ankle) would play Sunday night against the Cowboys. Thanks to around-the-clock rehab, he's now a game-time decision, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. Still, there's a very good chance Beckham will not play Sunday, Rapoport reported.

Beckham hasn't seen a live snap since suffering an ankle injury that looked like it could have been much worse in a Week 2 preseason loss to the Cleveland Browns. NFL Network's Kimberly Jones reported Sunday she was told Beckham would "for sure" be a game-time decision, adding that Beckham will work out before the game to gauge how his ankle feels.

Here are the other injuries we're tracking on Sunday before games kick off:

  1. Despite being listed as questionable, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) and wide receiver Curtis Samuel (ankle) are expected to play against the San Francisco 49ers, according to Rapoport.
  1. Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross (knee) will not play against the Ravens, Rapoport reported.
  1. Jacksonville Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) will not play.
  1. Seattle Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls (ankle) practiced this week, but he might be held out to get to 100 percent, according to Rapoport.
  1. Oakland Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski was placed on injured reserve on Saturday, but his herniated disc issue may not require surgery and he could return in eight weeks, per Rapoport.

Raiders first-round pick CB Gareon Conley (shin) is inactive.

  1. Chicago Bears guard Kyle Long (ankle) told NFL Network's Stacey Dales that he's "not where I wanna be." He was ruled inactive for the Bears' game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Receiver Markus Wheaton (finger) is also inactive.

  1. Green Bay Packers tackle Bryan Bulaga (ankle) is also a longshot to play against the Seahawks, according to Rapoport.
  1. Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed is still battling a painful toe injury but is active and is expected to play against the Eagles. Wide receiver Jamison Crowder (hip) is active and is expected to play.
  1. Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche (calf) needs another week to get healthy and is inactive against the Lions.
  1. Ruled out for Week 1, Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett (ankle) arrived at FirstEnergy Stadium in a walking boot, according to NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala. He is out.
  1. New York Jets quarterback Bryce Petty (MCL) is inactive. Christian Hackenberg will backup starter Josh McCown at quarterback.
