The Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs is set, and this weekend’s games should be good ones, but here is a look at the injury report for this weekend’s games.

Dallas Cowboys Receiving Core is shaken up as Beasley and Hurns suffer ankle injuries

The Cowboys are running thin at receiver as they prepare for their divisional round match-up with the Los Angeles Rams. Cole Beasley is questionable for the Cowboys with an ankle injury. Add in the ugly looking ankle injury that Allen Hurns suffered against Seattle in the wild-card round. Hurns is out, so the Cowboys will have to turn to others as they go on the road to Los Angeles with a shot at the NFC Championship game on the line. In all the Cowboys have five players questionable for Saturday’s game, that includes Darian Thompson (safety), David Irving (defensive tackle), Xavier Su’a-Filo (guard), Beasley, and Trey Williams (running back).

Tyquan Lewis, Ryan Grant, J.J. Wilcox, and Mike Mitchell  – Colts

The Colts have four players listed as questionable for the Colts divisional round match-up with the Kansas City Chiefs. Tyquan Lewis suffered a knee injury, that may be the most serious of the four players that are new additions to the injury report for the Colts. Ryan Grant is dealing with a toe injury. While defensive back J.J. Wilcox is being slowed by an ankle injury. Safety Mike Mitchell is being hampered by a calf injury.

Chiefs have five players questionable for their Saturday match-up with the Colts

Running Back Spencer Ware could be limited for the Chiefs as he is questionable with a hamstring injury. Derrick Nnadi (concussion) could finally be cleared for the Chiefs on Saturday, but it is definitely something to keep an eye on. Jordan Lucas is questionable with a neck injury. The Chiefs could be without a very key defender in their secondary as safety Eric Berry is questionable with a heel injury. It has been an injury-plagued first season in KC for wide receiver Sammy Watkins who hasn’t played since week 11. Ware hasn’t played since week 14 for the Chiefs. But a promising sign is that Watkins, Ware, and Berry have all showed progress and could be available on Saturday.

Melvin Gordon – Los Angeles Chargers

Gordon has left knee injury and it has not been determined whether or not he will suit up on Sunday against the Patriots in the divisional round. Gordon was able to manage 43 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown against the Ravens in the Wild Card round, but could still be slowed due to his knee. This is the kind of thing you would expect the Chargers to have him in uniform but, he might not see the field. He has had a successful season while dealing with multiple ailments. In 12 games this season he finished with 1,275 yards from scrimmage and 14 total touchdowns. Can rookie Justin Jackson help get a major playoff win on the road in Foxborough?

Alex Okafor – New Orleans Saints

The Saints defensive end is nursing a hyperextended knee and is questionable for the Saints divisional round game against the Eagles on Sunday. Okafor has had a big season, after missing last season with a knee injury. Will Okafor be ready to go and help the Saints defense get after Nick Foles?

Devin McCourty, Cordarrelle Patterson – New England Patriots

McCourty who is one of the leaders in the Patriots secondary is questionable for Sunday’s match-up with the Chargers. McCourty is in concussion protocol and might be unavailable for New England on Sunday. Cordarrelle Patterson sat out the Patriots week 17 game against the Jets due to a knee injury and is questionable for Sunday divisional round game against the Chargers.

Todd Gurley, Lamarcus Joyner – Los Angeles Rams

Gurley has sat out the Rams last two games due to knee inflammation but is projected to suit up against the Cowboys in the Divisional Round. Lamarcus Joyner was held out in the Rams final regular season game but is expected to be ready to go against Dallas.

Sidney Jones -Philadelphia Eagles

Jones has missed the last four games, due to a hamstring injury. It is unclear if he will be able to play when the Eagles square off with the Cowboys in the Divisional Round on Saturday.
