Late game inactives

Buffalo at Arizona

Cards RB William Powell is active this afternoon. Though it’s unclear who will get the majority of the carries today – Ryan Williams has been up and down this year – Powell could have a big day. Buffalo’s run defense – read: defense in general – is atrocious. John Skelton makes his return today as well. This may be the last week of the Kolb experiment. Jarius Byrd, Kyle Williams and Mario Williams are active as well – don’t suck, please.

New England at Seattle

Tom Brady will have a healthy core of at his disposable in what should be a spirited affair at CenturyLink Field. Wes Welker, Shane Vereen, Aaron Hernandez, Rob Gronkowski and Brandon Bolden are active. For the Seahawks, Marshawn Lynch will play today after fighting through back pains.

Minnesota at Washington

Pierre Garcon is inactive for the Redskins. Vikings WR Jerome Simpson joins Garcon on the sidelines. In positive news for Christian Ponder, Adrian Peterson and Percy Harvin are active.

New York at San Francisco

Hakeem Nicks and Martellus Bennett are in the lineup. Bennett had been battling knee issues this week.

We’ll provide updates as more information emerges.
