The NFL playoffs are finally here. After 18 weeks, we know the matchups, we know the strengths and weaknesses of each of the teams in the tournament, and we know all about the various storylines that will play a role in determining which of them advances to the next round. The last thing we’ll find out before the games actually kick off, of course, is who is actually going to play in these games, and who will be sidelined. 

That’s right, it’s time for final injury reports — Super Wild Card Weekend style. In the space below, we’ll keep you updated on who’s in, who’s out, and whose status may be in question. Plus, we’ll analyze any and all absences, and what effect they’ll have on the games. 

Las Vegas Raiders at Cincinnati Bengals (-5.5)

These two teams are remarkably healthy right now, with most starters available to play in this game. The most notable injury is to Bengals right tackle Riley Reiff, who is likely out for the year. That means the job of blocking star Raiders pass rusher Maxx Crosby falls to backup Isaiah Prince. For the Raiders, cornerback Trayvon Mullen is on injured reserve for the second time this year, leaving them somewhat thinner on the back end against a very good Bengals receiving corps. 

New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills (-4)

Among the many Patriots listed as questionable, only Wynn and Collins actually took any DNPs in practice this week. Collins was upgraded to limited later in the week and thus seems to be trending in the right direction, but Wynn was downgraded from limited on Tuesday to DNP on Wednesday and Thursday, making his status murkier. 

Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-8.5)
