Week 6 NFL injuries: Ryan Tannehill, Deshaun Watson questionable to play on Sunday – CBSSports.com

We know one team will be missing their top running back this week, but several others are also dealing with uncertain backfields heading into Week 6 play. But the biggest injuries of the week could be to quarterbacks.

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was downgraded to a limited practice on Friday due to an injury to his right shoulder, and he was listed as questionable on the team’s final injury report.

Eight other Dolphins were listed as questionable to play Sunday, including left tackle Laremy Tunsil and safety T.J. McDonald, while Cameron Wake was ruled doubtful after missing practice all week. The Bears come out of their bye healthy, with only depth defensive back Marcus Cooper on the shelf.

Coleman has rushed for 225 yards on 61 carries (3.7 yards per carry), while Smith has managed 21 carries
