Date Player
1/16/2017 Julio Jones, Atl, WR
Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Jones (foot) will have his practice reps limited this week but will play in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

Analysis: The All-Pro receiver was never believed to be in any danger of sitting out, though he played just over half the offensive snaps in Saturday's 36-20 win over Seattle in the divisional round. Jones still managed six catches for 67 yards and a touchdown in his limited duty.
1/15/2017 Ty Montgomery, GB, RB
Ty Montgomery ran for 47 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries Sunday in the Green Bay Packers' 34-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys. He added six receptions for 34 yards.

Analysis: Next week, Green Bay visits the Falcons, who ranked 17th against the run. The Packers lost 33-32 at Atlanta in Week 8, and Montgomery missed that game with an illness.
1/15/2017 Jared Cook, GB, TE
Jared Cook had six receptions for 104 yards and one touchdown Sunday in the Green Bay Packers' 34-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Analysis: Cook's final catch was the biggest, as the tight end hauled in Aaron Rodgers' 36-yard pass by dragging his toes in bounds at the 33-yard line with 3 seconds on the clock. Mason Crosby followed with a game-winning field goal just inside the left upright.
1/15/2017 Mason Crosby, GB, K
Mason Crosby converted two of two field-goal attempts Sunday as the Green Bay Packers defeated the Dallas Cowboys 34-31. He made kicks of 56 and 51 yards. Crosby tacked on four PATs.
1/15/2017 Aaron Ripkowski, GB, RB
Aaron Ripkowski ran for 24 yards on four carries Sunday in the Green Bay Packers' 34-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
1/15/2017 Geronimo Allison, GB, WR
Geronimo Allison had three receptions for 46 yards Sunday in the Green Bay Packers' 34-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
1/15/2017 Richard Rodgers, GB, TE
Richard Rodgers had one reception for 34 yards and one touchdown Sunday in the Green Bay Packers' 34-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
1/15/2017 Dez Bryant, Dal, WR
Dez Bryant had nine receptions for 132 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in the Dallas Cowboys' 34-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Analysis: Bryant's TD was the first in the playoffs for the star receiver.
1/15/2017 Cole Beasley, Dal, WR
Cole Beasley had four receptions for 45 yards Sunday in the Dallas Cowboys' 34-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers.
1/15/2017 Terrance Williams, Dal, WR
Terrance Williams had four receptions for 68 yards Sunday in the Dallas Cowboys' 34-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers.
1/15/2017 Jason Witten, Dal, TE
Jason Witten had six receptions for 59 yards and one touchdown Sunday in the Dallas Cowboys' 34-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Analysis: Witten's touchdown was the first in the playoffs in his 14-year career.
1/15/2017 Ezekiel Elliott, Dal, RB
Ezekiel Elliott ran for 125 yards on 22 carries Sunday in the Dallas Cowboys' 34-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Analysis: Elliott had an outstanding playoff debut to complete a sensational rookie season and heads into 2017 as one of the top overall fantasy draft picks.
1/15/2017 Dan Bailey, Dal, K
Dan Bailey converted three of three field-goal attempts Sunday as the Dallas Cowboys lost to the Green Bay Packers 34-31. He made kicks of 50, 33 and 52 yards. Bailey tacked on two PATs.
1/15/2017 Dak Prescott, Dal, QB
Dak Prescott was 24 of 38 for 302 yards and threw three touchdown passes Sunday in the Dallas Cowboys' 34-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers. He threw one interception, didn't fumble and was sacked two times. Prescott added 13 rushing yards on two carries.

Analysis: The fourth-round pick, who was supposed to be the No. 3 quarterback before injuries changed everything, got Dallas' rally going with a 40-yard touchdown toss in the first half to Dez Bryant, the first playoff TD for the star receiver. He set the stage for the first tying score on a 6-yarder to Jason Witten, then the rookie signal-called bullied his way over the goal line for the 2-point conversion
1/15/2017 Ladarius Green, Pit, TE
The Steelers are without Green on Sunday versus Kansas City.

Analysis: Troubled all season by various injuries (ankle, knee) and maladies (headaches), he's on the inactive list while he remains in the NFL's concussion protocol.
1/15/2017 Justin Houston, KC, LB
Houston is active for the first time since a loss to Tennessee on Dec. 18.

Analysis: The star linebacker has been dealing with soreness in his surgically repaired left knee.
1/15/2017 Morgan Burnett, GB, S
Burnett will not return to Sunday's NFC Divisional Round playoff game at Dallas after sustaining a quad injury in the first quarter.

Analysis: Burnett, who led Green Bay with 91 tackles during the regular season, was hurt after colliding with teammate LaDarius Gunter while defending a pass on the game's opening drive. He's been replaced by undrafted rookie Kentrell Brice.
1/15/2017 Adrian Clayborn, Atl, DE
The Atlanta Falcons lost Clayborn for the remainder of the playoffs after he suffered a torn biceps in the 36-20 victory over the Seattle Seahawks in an NFC divisional playoff game on Saturday.

Analysis: The 6-foot-3, 280-pound Clayborn was injured early in the game and did not return after halftime. Clayborn, in his second season with the Falcons, finished second on the team with 4.5 sacks in 13 games. He missed three games because of a knee injury.
1/15/2017 Tyron Smith, Dal, T
Smith (knee) is active for Sunday's NFC Divisional Playoff against Green Bay.

Analysis: The All-Pro left tackle was fully expected to play despite being listed questionable on the final injury report and sitting out Dallas' meaningless regular-season finale at Philadelphia.
1/15/2017 Morris Claiborne, Dal, CB
The Cowboys will have Claiborne back for Sunday's clash with Green Bay in the NFC Divisional Playoffs.

Analysis: It'll be Claiborne's first appearance since Oct. 30, having missed the team's final nine regular-season games with a significant groin injury. The former first-round pick's return ensures Dallas' secondary will be at full strength for a tough matchup against the red-hot Aaron Rodgers.
