Nineteen teams are still in the playoff hunt, but that number should dip considerably after Sunday's games. Adding to the intrigue of Week 16 games is a list of prominent players who are battling injuries.

The New England Patriots, who are looking to avoid a home upset to the Buffalo Bills, will have one of Tom Brady's top targets available, as tight end Rob Gronkowski was taken off the injury report. Gronkowski has been limited in practice due to back and ankle injuries and his presence will be needed Sunday with wide receiver Josh Gordon off the team due to suspension. 

According to ESPN's Lindsey Thiry, the Los Angeles Rams will go through a pregame workout Sunday to decide if star running back Todd Gurley will play. Gurley, who has been listed as questionable, did not practice this week due to a knee injury.

The Rams, who are seeking the top spot in the NFC, are extremely thin at running back, as primary backup Malcolm Brown in on the injured reserve and Justin Davis is listed as questionable with a shoulder injury. New signee C.J. Anderson and reserve John Kelly could see a bulk of the carries Sunday when the Rams face the Arizona Cardinals.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, fresh off their big victory over the Patriots, won't have running back James Conner available due to a high ankle sprain in a pivotal road matchup against the New Orleans Saints. Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (groin) is listed as questionable.

After missing five games, Saints left tackle Terron Armstead returned to practice after recovering from a torn pectoral. New Orleans is favored to finish with the best record in the AFC.

The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport posted on Twitter that Houston Texans starting running back Lamar Miller and wide receiver Keke Coutee, were downgraded to "out" for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles are still in playoff contention, while the Texans are looking to capture the AFC South. 

Rapoport also noted that Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins (foot) won't play Sunday night against the Seattle Seahawks, while running back Spencer Ware is doubtful with a hamstring injury. The Chiefs' offense has taken a big hit with the loss of suspended running back Kareem Hunt. 

The Chiefs have the same record (11-3) as the Los Angeles Chargers in the AFC West, while the Seahawks have a strong shot at capturing an NFC wild-card berth. 

The struggling New York Giants won't have star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. available in a road game against the Indianapolis Colts, who are still very much in playoff contention with an 8-6 record. Beckham, who did not practice this week, will miss his third straight game due to a quad injury.
