Week 9 Injury Report as of 11/5/2016

Bye Weeks: Arizona, Chicago, Cincinnati, Houston, New England, Washington

TNF: Atlanta, Tampa


Baltimore Ravens

Player: Steve Smith Sr., WR

Injury: Smith is questionable for Week 9 with an ankle injury, and was a full participant at Friday’s light practice.


Fantasy Impact: With Smith logging full participation on Friday, it would be surprising if he did not play on Sunday. Monitor the situation, as ankle injuries are easily aggravated. Aiken and Wallace would be the main beneficiaries from his absence.


Player: C.J. Mosley. LB

Injury: Mosley is expected to be back in the middle of the Ravens defense after missing two games with a pulled hamstring.


Fantasy Impact: This would be a hug addition to the Ravens this week, as they really missed him last week as he is one of their best players overall.



Buffalo Bills

Player: LeSean McCoy, LB

Injury: McCoy practiced on Saturday and is listed as questionable with a hamstring injury.

Source: Mike Rodak on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: Since he logged three practices this week, he should definitely suit up for the Bills this week. McCoy is the central focus of the offense, so look for him to continue to get a whole lot of work going forward, health willing.



Carolina Panthers

Player: Luke Kuechly, LB

Injury: Kuechly is questionable for Week 9 with a groin injury.         

Source: David Newton on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: With Kuechly missing the team’s last two practices, I would be cautious and check to make sure that he is playing on Sunday. Obviously, if he plays, you have to start this guy. Just check-in to be safe. I don’t like it when guys miss practices in the back-end of the week.



Dallas Cowboys

Player: Dez Bryant, WR 

Injury: Dez is listed as questionable with knee and back injuries, but was a full participant on Friday.


Fantasy Impact: Dez should be good to go as he is still a little banged up this season. Coming off a good week last week, look for the good times to continue to roll against the Browns.

Player: Barry Church, DB 

Injury: Church has been ruled out for Week 9 with a broken arm.


Fantasy Impact: Church will likely miss 3-5 weeks with this injury, and is a really big blow to this Dallas defense. He is worth hanging on to though, as he should be back before the season is over.



Detroit Lions

Player: Theo Riddick, RB

Injury: Riddick is listed as questionable with an ankle injury for Week 9.


Fantasy Impact: Riddick logged a few limited practices this week, and should be available for fantasy owners this week. The backfield is crowded in Detroit, but remains the top pass-catching option at RB.



Green Bay Packers

Player: Randall Cobb, WR

Injury: Cobb is questionable with a hamstring issue and is deemed a game-time decision for Sunday.


Fantasy Impact: Cobb was held out last week and practiced in a limited capacity at times this week. Do not be surprised if Cobb is held out another week to be given time to rest. Check in before the game if you plan on using him. Davante Adams and Jordy Nelson would receive additional targets again.


Player: Clay Matthews, LB

Injury: Matthews is listed as questionable with a hamstring injury as well, and is considered a possible game-time decision by Mike McCarthy.


Fantasy Impact: Monitor this one, as Matthews hamstring continues to give him all sorts of problems. He would not be a surprising scratch either if he struggles before the game. Check in prior to kickoff.



Indianapolis Colts

Player: Mike Adams, DB

Injury: Adams has been ruled out for Week 9 with a groin injury.


Fantasy Impact: With Adams down, the colts are without their back-end communicator on defense. This is a positive for Aaron Rodgers as he should continue his hot streak.



Kansas City Chiefs

Player: Jeremy Maclin, WR

Injury: Maclin is questionable with a groin injury for Week 9.

Source: Adam Teicher on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: Maclin got in a limited session on Friday and is fully expected to play against the Jaguars with intriguing backup QB Nick Foles at the helm.


Player: Alex Smith, QB

Injury: Nick Foles will start at QB for the Chiefs with Alex Smith getting the week off after being ruled out during last week’s game with a concussion.


Fantasy Impact: The Chiefs actually said that he does not have a concussion. He is pretty banged up and may have some symptoms, so look for Nick Foles to leading the Chiefs in Week 9.



Miami Dolphins

Player: DaVante Parker, WR

Injury: Parker is questionable for Week 9 with a hamstring issue.

Source: Armando Salguero on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: Parker logged full practices all week, so there is nothing to see here as he has dealt with hamstring problems all season.



Minnesota Vikings

Player: Eric Kendricks, LB

Injury: Kendricks has been ruled out for Week 9 after suffering a concussion.


Fantasy Impact: The Vikes will be without their top linebacker for this one, leaving a hole for the Lions to try and exploit. Hopefully he clears protocol and will be available to play next week.


Player: Jerick McKinnon, RB

Injury: McKinnon is questionable with an ankle injury, but will likely suit up.


Fantasy Impact: This is good news, as it gives the Vikings a change of pace to Asiata throughout the game. McKinnon does not hold much value due to the split workload.



New York Jets

Player: Muhammad Wilkerson, DL

Injury: Wilkerson is questionable to play with an ongoing ankle injury.         


Fantasy Impact: Wilkerson was able to play last week, and is expected to be a game-time decision this week, as he only recorded a limited practice on Friday. Keep an eye out here.



Oakland Raiders

Player: Amari Cooper, WR

Injury: Cooper is questionable with a back injury for Week 9, logging limited sessions this week.      


Fantasy Impact: Cooper was limited at every practice this week, but is expected to not miss this huge game against the Broncos. I expect him to be out there. He gets a bump with Talib being ruled out for the Broncos.



Pittsburgh Steelers

Player: Ben Roethlisberger, QB

Injury: Ben is questionable for Week 9 as he recovers from a meniscus repair.          


Fantasy Impact: Big Ben has actually put in limited practices all week just two weeks after his meniscus repair! This guy is crazy tough. He is expected to start and gives everyone on the Steelers’ offense a big time boost.



San Diego Chargers

Player: Hunter Henry, TE

Injury: Henry will miss Week 9 against the Titans with a knee injury.           

Source: Michael Gehlken on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: With Henry missing out this week, Gates will further tighten his grasp on the primary spot at TE for the Chargers. Hopefully Henry heals up for next week.


Player: Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin, WR’s

Injury: Williams and Benjamin were both full participants at Friday’s practice.         

Source: Michael Gehlken on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: This ensures that Rivers will have his top pass-catching options at WR this week, and should both get a boost with Hunter Henry missing out this week.



San Francisco 49ers

Player: Carlos Hyde, RB

Injury: Hyde is still dealing with a sprained AC joint, and has been wearing a non-contact jersey.      


Fantasy Impact: This does not bode well for Hyde, as he is not even sure if he will play. This is a true game-time decision if it makes it that far, so keep your ear to the ground. DaJuan Harris is the primary backup.



Seattle Seahawks

Player: Jimmy Graham, TE

Injury: Graham is questionable with a knee injury, but has practiced all week.


Fantasy Impact: Graham is fully expected to play this week, as the Seahawks are just managing his workload to keep him healthy.


Player: Michael Bennett, DL

Injury: Bennett underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on Wednesday.

Source: Liz Mathews on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: Bennett will miss 2-3 weeks with this injury, as the Seahawks will have Frank Clark fill in for him.



Tennessee Titans

Player: Delanie Walker, TE

Injury: Walker injured his groin at practice on Friday and will be a game-time decision for Week 9.  


Fantasy Impact: This is unfortunate. He is hopeful that he will still be able to play after a couple of days off, but he is a true game-time decision here. If he cannot go, look for Jace Amaro to continue to get work.
