Jacksonville will be down potentially two key defensive starters in Jack and Robertson-Harris, but Miami is even more banged up for this overseas affair, with Parker and Howard -- two of their best players -- sidelined.

Minnesota is healthy for this NFC clash, with playmakers Dalvin Cook, Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson all completely off the injury report ahead of Sunday. The Panthers, on the other hand, will be counting on rookie Chuba Hubbard once again, with McCaffrey set to miss his third straight.Bengals: TBA Lions: TBA Packers: TBA Bears: TE J.P.
