UNDERSTANDING THE NFL'S INJURY REPORT
The injury report released by the NFL is two reports. The first is the Practice Participation report, which lists which injured players were able to practice and how much. It also includes players who rested or missed practice for non-injury-related reasons. The second is the Game Status Report, which gives the probability a player will play, i.e., Questionable, Doubtful, Out. The Practice Participation Report is released every day of the week (Monday through Saturday). The Game Status Report is released with the Friday participation report (Wednesday for Thursday games, Saturday for Monday games).
In this feature, I'll include the Game Status Listing, my expectation of their likelihood to play, and the player's practice participation throughout the week.

Andrews is recovering from a painful AC sprain in his shoulder. He was cryptic with reporters on Thursday, saying, "you never know" when asked if he would return this week. John Harbaugh was more optimistic. He told reporters he "planned on having [Andrews] back." The full Friday practice suggests Andrews will play. Expect a full workload.
Sunday update: Ian Rapoport and Adam Schefter confirm Andrews will play.
