Most NFL teams delivered their final injury reports of the week on Friday. Here's who is playing and who is not among the league's biggest names, starting with a quarterback who seems to be fighting through plenty of pain to stay on the field.
Chargers injuries: Justin Herbert questionable after rib injury
Many wondered how Justin Herbert managed to keep playing last Thursday despite a clear injury to his side on a rough hit from the Kansas City Chiefs, but it's not clear if he will able to keep going on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Herbert, who is said to be day-to-day with a "rib cartilage fracture," was ruled questionable after being limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, then not participating on Friday.
