past two games with a foot injury, but coach Ron Rivera is optimistic Thompson will be ready for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay. That would be big news for a team that will be missing outside linebacker Thomas Davis, suspended by the NFL for targeting Green Bay wide receiver Davante Adams. -- David NewtonNew Orleans Saints

The worst injury news of the week was already delivered when linebacker A.J. Klein was placed on injured reserve with a groin injury. Klein has been a great asset for the revamped defense as both a playmaker and signal-caller. Fortunately, the Saints have good veteran depth at the position with Manti Te'o and Craig Robertson. The biggest injury question mark is whether standout right guard Larry DeAndre Hopkins Authentic Jersey Warford can play after suffering a concussion last week. Warford did not practice Wednesday, leaving his status in doubt. The other two veteran guards, Andrus Peat and Senio Kelemete, were both limited in practice. -- Mike Triplett

Tampa Bay Buccaneer Of the 10 players who suffered injuries against the Falcons on Monday night, four were placed on injured reserve. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson didn't practice Wednesday due to an ankle injury, and tight end Cameron Brate was limited with a knee/hip injury. Considering the loss of O.J. Howard, there's a lot more riding on Brate now. Defensive end Robert Ayers has a stinger in his shoulder and did not participate, and cornerback Ryan Smith has an ankle injury that limited him. -- Jenna Laine

NFC WEST Arizona Cardinals The best way to choose the biggest injury question this week will be to /a> throw a dart at the list. Eleven players didn't practice Wednesday because of injuries. Karlos Dansby and Josh Bynes are the most important to watch because if neither can play Sunday, Arizona will be down to two healthy inside linebackers: Deone Bucannon and Haason Reddick. Reddick has been taking snaps at outside linebacker, as well. Another player to watch closely is running back Kerwynn Williams, who missed practice with a quad and ribs injury. If he can't play, the Cardinals will have a skeleton backfield. -- Josh Weinfuss

Los Angeles Rams Greg Zuerlein, the NFL's best kicker this season, was placed on injured reserve Sunday with a back Womens Valtteri Filppula Jersey injury, ending his season just two weeks before the playoffs. Zuerlein, who had just been named to his first Pro Bowl on Tuesday, is set to have surgery Thursday morning to repair a herniated disk -- a procedure that typically comes with a 12-week Authentic Alex Pietrangelo Jersey recovery /a> process.

Zuerlein had been pushing through a sore back for a significant chunk of this season, coach Sean McVay said, and the disk flared up on him while he slept the night before last Sunday's game in Seattle. The Rams were surprised he was even able to play. They tried out about 10 kickers at their facility earlier Wednesday and wound up signing Sam Ficken, originally an undrafted free agent out of Penn State. -- Alden Gonzalez

The Niners were surprised when free safety Adrian Colbert reported concussion symptoms after last week's game against Tennessee. Now, Colbert is in the concussion protocol and his status for Sunday against Jacksonville is up in the air. Colbert had just returned from a thumb injury, but without him, the 49ers are very thin in terms of safety depth. Believe it or not, Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles has been one of the most productive signal-callers in the league over the past three weeks, and if Colbert can't go, the middle of the field becomes ripe for Bortles' picking. -- /a> Nick Wagoner

Seattle Dermontti Dawson Authentic Jersey Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll sounded optimistic that linebacker K.J. Wright will clear the concussion protocol this week after missing the blowout loss to the Rams. Bobby Wagner played in that game despite a bad hamstring that was clearly limiting him. Carroll said Wagner made it through without the injury worsening, so there's a good chance the Seahawks will have both of their Pro Bowl linebackers against the Cowboys. Good timing with Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott returning from his six-game suspension. -- Brady Henderson

It's crunch time. With two weeks left in the regular season, the man at the top is the same man who was there two weeks ago, but there have been major changes behind him. Can Todd Gurley bulldoze his way to No. 1 before it's all over? How far does onetime poll leader Carson Wentz fall due to his season-ending injury? And is that really Case Keenum still hanging onto a top-five spot? The race is starting to come into focus, but the final weeks could still shake things up. So let's get right to the poll, starting with its least surprising name.

Methodology: Our panel of 12 experts nominated their top five candidates. First-place votes are worth five points, second-place votes worth four, third-place votes worth three, fourth-place votes worth two and fifth-place votes worth one.
