|1/17/2018||Leonard Fournette, Jax, RB|
|Fournette (ankle) is not listed on Jacksonville's final injury report and will play in the AFC title game against the Patriots.
Analysis: Fournette has been dealing with the injury since mid-October, though he didn't look too gimpy in rushing for 109 yards and three touchdowns on 25 carries in last week's upset win at Pittsburgh. Expect the rookie to handle another heavy workload in the AFC Championship.
|1/17/2018||Adam Thielen, Min, WR|
|Thielen (back) played in Sunday's NFC championship game and had three receptions for 28 yards Sunday in the Minnesota Vikings' 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Analysis: Thielen clearly wasn't 100 percent, though it may not have mattered even if he was with Case Keenum turning in one of his worst performances of the year. The 2017 breakout star won't be overlooked in next season's draft after racking up 91 catches and 1,276 yards prior to the playoffs.
|1/17/2018||Tom Brady, NE, QB|
|Brady is on the field for warmups at Gillette Stadium wearing black tape over the inside part of his injured right hand - but no glove.
Analysis: Brady is throwing passes - with a glove only on his non-throwing left hand - about 45 minutes before kickoff for the AFC championship game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
|1/17/2018||Rex Burkhead, NE, RB|
|Burkhead is practiced again Friday and is expected to play in Sunday's AFC championship.
Analysis: Burkhead was inactive for last Saturday's AFC divisional round playoff game against the Titans after injuring his knee in a 27-24 win over the Steelers on Dec. 17.
