Welcome back to the latest Injury Report. There are only three weeks left in the Fantasy regular season. An interesting week of injuries has seen us lose some stalwart players, and has us with more game-time decisions than I can ever remember.
Peyton Manning sitting down with a bum foot was the shock of the year. Not that his play has been good, but that it might be the end of an era in the NFL, and it wasn’t a Norman Rockwell painting.
A high powered Cardinals offense is looking like it might be missing one or two of it’s important cogs.
The tough season for Alshon Jeffery continues, and he just can’t seem to stay healthy. Will he play this week?
These questions and more will be answered in the Week 11 injury report.
Week 11 Injury Report
John Brown, WR
Brown is looking like a game-time decision this week. He hasn’t done anything his last two games, but may be relied on more if Michael Floyd is out.
Michael Floyd, WR
Floyd missed practice all week and will be a game-time decision. I wouldn’t be counting on him this week.
Leonard Hankerson, WR
Hankerson was limited on Wednesday and Thursday, but returned to full practice on Friday. He is listed as probable this week. You should expect to have him this week.
No Fantasy relevant injuries for the Ravens.
Nothing to report for the Bills.
Corey Brown, WR
Brown is listed as doubtful this week with a shoulder injury. You should not be expecting him to play.
Matt Forte, RB
Forte is questionable this week. After missing practice on Thursday, Forte was listed as limited on Friday. Keep an eye on the inactive lists Sunday morning, but I would be shocked if Forte plays this week.
Alshon Jeffery, WR
Jeffery is questionable after missing practice on Thursday and Friday this week. He is likely to be a game-time decision this week.
Eddie Royal, WR
Royal is out this week.
Nothing to report for the Bengals.
Darren McFadden, RB
McFadden injured his groin in practice on Wednesday, but is expected to play this weekend for the Cowboys. After being limited in practice on Thursday and Friday, McFadden is officially listed as questionable.
Peyton Manning, QB
Manning is out this week.
Emmanuel Sanders, WR
Sanders is questionable this week after being only a limited participant in practice on Thursday and Friday. Keep your eye on the actives on Sunday morning for his status.
Owen Daniels, TE
Daniels progressed to a full practice this week, and is now listed as probable for this week.
Calvin Johnson, WR
Johnson is probable for this week at the Raiders. Logging limited practices on Thursday and Friday, Johnson can likely be counted on this week.
Green Bay Packers
Eddie Lacy, RB
Lacy is probable this week after turning in full practices all week.
Ty Montgomery, WR
Montgomery aggravated his ankle on Thursday. He is questionable for Sunday, and is not making the kind of progress you want to see from a player who has been out with an injury. I wouldn’t expect him this week.
Brian Hoyer, QB
Hoyer is out this week with a concussion.
DeAndre Hopkins, WR
Hopkins is listed as probable after turning in his first practice of the week on Friday. Hopkins said earlier this week that he would be able to play this week, and a limited practice and probable designation lend themselves to this notion. Expect him to play.
No new Colts info to update.
Kansas City Chiefs
No news is good news for the Chiefs.
Nothing Fantasy relevant to report for the Dolphins.
All Fantasy relevant players are looking good for the Vikings.
New England Patriots
Keshawn Martin, WR
Martin was limited in practice early in the week. With New England losing Julian Edelman last week, Martin might see an uptick in his targets moving forward. With the Pats playing on Monday night, keep an eye on Martin’s status Saturday if you were planning on using him this week.
New Orleans Saints
New York Giants
New York Jets
Nothing of note to discuss for the Jets this week.
Looking good for the Raiders this week.
Sam Bradford, QB
Bradford is out this week for the Eagles.
Ryan Mathews, RB
Mathews is out this week with a concussion.
San Diego Chargers
Malcom Floyd, WR
Floyd is out this week for the Chargers.
Antonio Gates, TE
Gates missed practice on Thursday, but returned in a limited capacity on Friday. He is probable for this weekend.
Ladarius Green, TE
Green was out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but returned to a limited practice on Friday. He is listed as questionable for this week. Being that his game is a late game on Sunday, you should either have another TE, or play another TE instead of him this week.
Marshawn Lynch, RB
Lynch is listed as questionable with an abdominal injury. Last week saw Lynch suffering from the same injury, and he was able to play then. I would expect to see him this week.
Doug Baldwin, WR
Baldwin is probable this week with his toe injury. He had the rainbow of flavors this week in practice, missing Wednesday, and progressing to full participant on Friday.
San Francisco 49ers
Carlos Hyde, RB
Hyde is out this week for the Niners.
Anquan Boldin, WR
Boldin is questionable this week with a hamstring injury. He has missed multiple games in a row, and will be a game-time decision for the late Sunday afternoon game. Have a contingency plan just in case.
St. Louis Rams
Nothing Fantasy relevant to report here.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Vincent Jackson, WR
Jackson was reportedly set to miss this week’s game, but then was able to participate in practice on Thursday and Friday. You will need to check his status on Sunday to see if he is playing.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE
Seferian-Jenkins is questionable this week after logging limited practices. I have no clue how to read his participation, and would have another plan if I could.
Nothing to report for Washington this week in regards to Fantasy.
So in the final stretch before the Fantasy playoffs begin, I hope that the Week 11 injury report will help you make the good decisions that will power you to a playoff spot. As always, you will need to make good decisions about the late game players, and also be sure to check the list of active and inactive players for your teams this week. Good luck this week.
