Week one is among us, and a lot of ground breaking news is being released as Sunday approaches. Here is a list of who is in and out for this weekends matchups: 

Who’s in?
Julio Jones- After dealing with an ankle injury throughout the preseason, it has been announced that Julio Jones will be active for Sunday’s game against the Bucs. 

Brandon Marshall- Handling a minor hip injury, Brandon Marshall will be more than ready to go on Sunday against the Bengals. 

Shaun Hill- According to sources, it has been announced that the Vikings will give the nod to 36-year old Shaun Hill for Sundays game against the Titans. Sam Bradford will be placed as the backup for now. 

Steve Smith Sr- Even though it seemed like a long shot, Smith Sr will be active Sunday against the Bills. He won’t be as dominant, but look for him to pitch in with a few receptions this week. 

Who’s Out?

Rob Gronkowski- It has been reported on Friday that Gronkowski did not travel with the team to Arizona, and will not be playing on Sunday night. Along with Gronk, linemen Nate Solder and Jonathan Cooper also did not travel with the Patriots. 

Tyler Eifert- As expected, Eifert will not be playing on Sunday against the Jets. Look for the tight end to be back in action mid-way into the season.

Jay Ajayi- Expected to play, suddenly the Dolphins running back decided not to travel with the team (coach’s choice). Expect Foster to get plenty of touches against Seattle.
