1. Mike White

UPDATE (DEC. 31): White (ribs) participated in full practices on Wednesday and Thursday, and ESPN’s Rich Cimini reports that he will start against the Seahawks on Sunday.

Mike White has been cleared to return to action for the Jets’ Week 17 game after missing the previous two.

White has already been named the team’s starter in a must-win game, with Zach Wilson taking his place on the bench.

White has performed admirably under center for the Jets, but he is only a QB2 for championship weekend.

2. Derrick Henry

UPDATE (DEC. 31): Henry (hip) will not play against the Cowboys on Thursday night.

When a player appears on an estimated injury report, it’s difficult to determine what we should be concerned about and what we shouldn’t be concerned about.

Derrick Henry was listed as a “DNP” on Monday’s estimated practice report because Tennessee was playing on Thursday.

Henry has been getting limited reps and rest days throughout the week all year, so this could just be a game.

Also, even if Tennessee loses in Week 17, they can still win the division if they beat Jacksonville in Week 18. If Henry is injured, he may be rested for the final game of the season.

3. Lamar Jackson 

UPDATE (DEC. 31): Jackson has been ruled out of the Steelers’ game on Sunday night.

We don’t have much more information about Lamar Jackson’s situation today than we did yesterday.

After their Week 16 game, head coach John Harbaugh was asked about Jackson, and he didn’t have much to say.

All we know is that Harbaugh is upbeat and that Jackson could appear in Week 17. We’ll see about that, given that the Ravens have already clinched a playoff spot.

4. Aaron Jones

UPDATE (DEC. 31): Jones (knee/ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against Minnesota.

Nobody could figure out why Aaron Jones only got 25 snaps compared to AJ Dillon’s 38, and even third-stringer Patrick Taylor only got five.

That is, until Jones was asked about it and admitted that he had tweaked his ankle, the same ankle he had tweaked during practice leading up to the game. Jones should be expected.
