Thursday's injury and roster news ahead of NFL Championship Sunday

Antonio Brown hasn't practiced this week but there's still a chance he plays in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday.

Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians said Thursday the veteran wideout will be a game-time decision against the Packers. Brown has been battling a knee injury this week.

Arians also said defensive lineman Vita Vea moved around well when the team went full speed in practice today. Vea's been out with a fractured ankle since Week 5, but was activated off injured reserve earlier this week.

Here are other injury and roster news we're tracking on Thursday:

  • The Green Bay Packers are signing cornerback Tramon Williams to their practice squad, coach Mike LaFleur said. The team later confirmed the move. Williams was released by the Ravens this week.
  • Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (concussion/toe) was limited at practice for a second time this week, coach Andy Reid said. Bashaud Breeland (concussion/shoulder) was also limited at practice. Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle/hip), Rashad Fenton (foot) and Sammy Watkins (calf) practiced in a limited capacity. Running back Le'Veon Bell (knee) and linebacker Willie Gay Jr. (ankle) did not practice.
  • Buffalo Bills receiver Cole Beasley was added to the injury report Thursday with a knee injury and was limited in practice. Stefon Diggs (oblique) was also limited again, and receiver Gabe Davis (ankle) and defensive tackle Vernon Butler (quad) were DNPs again.
