Jan. 10 (UPI) -- Heading into the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, here are a few injury updates for some key players that will affect how the matchups on Saturday and Sunday play out.

Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin is expected to play when Seattle welcomes the New Orleans Saints to town in the weekend’s first game on Saturday. Harvin has been practicing for most of the week and is listed as “probable” on the official injury report for Saturday’s game against the Saints. A healthy Harvin will surely help out quarterback Russell Wilson.

Rookie tight end Luke Willson is also “probable” for Saturday’s game.

In the Saturday night matchup between the Patriots and Indianapolis Colts, New England wide receiver Aaron Dobson is listed as “out” with a foot injury. WR Kenbrell Thompkins is expected to take his spot on the lineup even though he is listed as “questionable” with a hip injury of his own. To call the Patriots offense depleted is a bit of an understatement.

After aggravating his ankle injury in last week's win at Cincinnati, San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews may now be in danger of missing Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos.

Luckily for the Charger, the game isn’t until Sunday so Mathews will have some extra time to heal up. The team has deemed him "questionable" in advance of the game, although it sounds as if he has a strong shot of playing.

Mathews rushed 29 times in San Diego's Week 15 upset of Denver.
