NFL fans woke up to a bevy of injury updates on Sunday morning, hours before the first wave of games were slated to kick off. Saquon Barkley, Kenneth Walker III, Amari Cooper, and Lamar Jackson were just some of the notable names whose game day statuses were updated early Sunday morning ahead of Sunday's game.
Below is a run down of the most notable injury updates entering Sunday's games. The list includes several players whose statuses won't be officially revealed until teams issue their inactive reports 90 minutes prior to kickoff.

Giants running back Saquon Barkley's status for the Eagles is currently 50-50 as he is currently labeled as questionable to play. The Giants will see how Barkley (who is dealing with a neck injury) looks in pregame warmups before making a final decision.
Seattle's rookie running back is unlikely to face the Panthers on Sunday as he is dealing with an ankle injury. His main backup, DeeJay Dallas, is also unlikely to play as he is also nursing an ankle injury. Tony Jones Jr., Travis Homer and Godwin Igwebuike would split the workload in the event Walker and Dallas can't play.
While it was assumed that he wouldn't face the Steelers on Sunday, it is now being reported that the Ravens quarterback may miss the Ravens' next two games. Jackson continues to deal with a sprained PCL sustained during last Sunday's win over Denver. Baltimore (8-4) faces Pittsburgh on Sunday before traveling to Cleveland to take on the Browns next Sunday.
Seattle's wideout will face the Panthers on Sunday. Metcalf was labeled as questionable to play as he works through a hip injury. He is coming off a 127-yard, one touchdown performance (while catching each of his eight targets) during last Sunday's win over the rams.
The Browns' wideout is expected to face the Bengals on Sunday after being labeled as questionable to play with a hip injury. Cooper recorded a season-high 131 receiving yards in the Browns' Week 8 win over the Bengals on Halloween.
The Jaguars' quarterback is expected to face the Titans on Sunday despite missing significant practice time last week. Lawrence was initially labeled as questionable to play as he continues to deal with a toe injury.
The Buccaneers' running back is expected to face the 49ers on Sunday. Fournette was labeled as questionable to play as he is dealing with a foot injury. Fans should still expect to see a considerable among of backup Rachaad White against San Francisco.
The 49ers' menacing pass rusher will face the Buccaneers after being labeled as questionable to play. Bosa, who has been dealing with a hamstring injury, currently leads the NFL with 14.5 sacks.
