Week 6 has arrived and we have an assortment of terrific matchups, including a monster NFC North tilt between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers, along with Mitchell Trubisky?s second career start ? this time against the Baltimore Ravens? rugged defense. Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson is on line for another massive performance Sunday against the Browns. Watson has put together a two-game stretch for the ages.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Packers safety Morgan Burnett will miss Sunday's game against Minnesota with a hamstring injury, and Green Bay might be down another starter in the secondary in cornerback Kevin King.
Burnett was ruled out on Friday, and the Packers
If Ezekiel Elliott had served his six-game suspension to start the season, the Cowboys running back would have one game remaining. The Cowboys celebrated when Elliott won a preliminary injunction, allowing him to start the season. Dallas likely wouldn?t have been any worse than that without Elliott.
The Minnesota Vikings have ruled out quarterback Sam Bradford?and top receiver? Stefon Diggs?for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers, coach Mike Zimmer said Friday. Case Keenum will return to the starting role for the Vikings. Bradford, who returned last week after missing three games, aggravated a knee injury late in the first half of Sunday's win against Chicago. Diggs has a groin injury, and starting left guard Nick Easton will also not play because of a calf injury. Keenum finished with 140 yards on 17-of-21 passing and a touchdown with a 110.3 passer rating and 79.4 QBR in leading the Vikings to the 20-17 win over the Bears.
The fast, clever and tough defense Minnesota has had in four seasons with head coach Mike Zimmer has given the Vikings as good a chance to beat rival Green Bay as they've had since Aaron Rodgers became Packers starting quarterback in 2008. Rodgers will be fresh from his latest mastery, a 35-31 comeback to beat Dallas last week that kept the Packers in first place in the NFC North.
San Francisco 49ers? NaVorro Bowman is reportedly being shopped for a trade. ESPN?s Adam Schefter said the 49ers are shopping Bowman and ?there are teams interested.? If the 49ers are willing to move Bowman and aren?t asking for a ridiculous return, there?s no reason Bowman shouldn?t change teams this month.
The Minnesota Vikings are going to be short-handed on offense heading into an important home game against the rival Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Quarterback Sam Bradford, receiver Stefon Diggs and left guard Nick Easton were all ruled out by head coach Mike Zimmer on Friday after not practicing during the week. For a team that has already lost promising rookie running back Dalvin Cook for the season with a torn ACL, the uncertainty only increases.

Injured Green Bay Packers running back Ty Montgomery has a chance to play Sunday at Minnesota. Montgomery was listed as full participant for a second straight day Thursday while wearing a flak jacket to protect broken ribs sustained against Chicago on Sept. 28. ''I played with one in high school,'' Montgomery said.
