This Given Sunday is examining the biggest injury questions before each week of the NFL season. Here are the top-five health-related storylines entering Week 13.

If by chance he's a game-time decision, you won't know his status until after the early games have kicked off Sunday. Thus, it's a risk.

Fantasy owners are craving the return of the PPR star, but Harvin is still only practicing on a limited basis and has been walking with a noticeable limp.

The Steelers have had it rough the last couple of weeks, dropping two straight while the Cincinnati Bengals have closed the gap in the wildcard race.
