It's the end of the regular season, but for some, it's the start of the playoffs. There are two "win and in" games in the NFC, with the NFC East and NFC North titles on the line and a trip to the playoffs hanging in the balances. In both games, injuries are key, with Aaron Rodgers returning and Tony Romo watching after back surgery. 

It's not just in those games. Adrian Peterson and Steve Smith have been ruled out, but Calvin Johnson, Ray Rice, Emmanuel Sanders and Ryan Tannehill all have injury concerns. We'll be following all those stories and more today on this last Med Check of the 2013 season.

Welcome to Week 17 of the Sunday Morning Med Check with Will Carroll and Tyler Brooke, where we give you all of the latest news on injured players heading into the early afternoon games. We'll be working the phones and checking with sources for any news we can find to make sure your team is ready to win this week.

Will is going to be your injury consultant, working the phones to find out what he can about players and their current status. Meanwhile, Tyler will be checking in with other sources to give you the latest news provided by local beat writers and NFL insiders.

Remember, inactive lists come out 90 minutes before game time. We'll discuss the big ones, but for a complete list, check out NFL.com.

We'll also answer any fantasy football questions you may have. Be sure to tweet Tyler (@TylerDBrooke) and/or Will (@injuryexpert) using #BRFantasy, and we will respond to your questions on the live blog. Also be sure to watch Fantasy Live starting at noon ET for even more help with your lineup.
