Every week, we'll be covering the NFL's most significant injuries and how they're affecting numbers in the betting market. Here's the outlook for Week 6:

Note: Player statuses as of Friday afternoon

Davante Adams, WR Packers (toe)

Status: Doubtful

Green Bay fared just fine without Adams in last week's win over the Cowboys. The offense put up 34 points and leaned on running back Aaron Jones, who posted 107 yards and four touchdowns on the ground. However, there's some concern regarding quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who only completed four passes to wide receivers without Adams in the fold. The Lions had two weeks to prepare for this matchup and have allowed just four touchdown passes on the season, so Rodgers could be in tough if Adams can't go. The initial lean here would be under 46.5.

Sam Darnold, QB Jets (mono)

Status: In

Darnold's ready to go after missing three games with a bout of mononucleosis. He was subpar in the season opener, throwing for just 175 yards and one touchdown in a loss to the Bills. In his absence, the winless Jets turned to Trevor Siemian and Luke Falk, and things went even worse.

The Jets are seven-point home underdogs to the Cowboys with a game total of 44.5. But even with Dallas' offense coming to life this season under new coordinator Kellen Moore, Darnold can keep New York within striking distance. For the first time in a while, take the over in a Jets game.

Mason Rudolph, QB Steelers (concussion)

Status: Doubtful

Rudolph suffered a concussion on a vicious hit against the Ravens. He was relieved by third-stringer Devlin Hodges, who nearly led a comeback before Baltimore won in overtime. When the Steelers - who are 6.5-point underdogs for this game, which has a total of 41.5 - travel to face the Chargers on Sunday night, it'll be a matchup of underachieving teams. However, a cross-country trip to face an L.A. team coming off a home loss is difficult, so it probably doesn't matter who starts for Pittsburgh. Lay the chalk with the Bolts.

Jalen Ramsey, CB Jaguars (back)

Status: Probable

Ramsey was in danger of missing his third straight game this weekend, but Jaguars owner Shahid Khan expects the star cornerback to dress against the Saints. It would be a huge boost for a Jacksonville secondary that allowed 677 yards over the previous two weeks combined. Last week, we noted that Ramsey being out would make the Jaguars-Panthers over a great play. If he's back, we'd flip the script and go under on this weekend's total of 44.5.
