NFL Injury Report: Week 1
The first week of NFL football is almost here and we already have a ton of injuries that are sure to alter the outcomes of a few higher-profile contests on Thursday, Sunday and Monday. Here’s what you need to know:
The Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots are in for an interesting contest because Buffalo rookie quarterback EJ Manuel is apparently healthy and going to start. Rob Gronkowski is still doubtful for New England, but there are rumors he could suit up at the last minute.
Other questionable players are Cleveland Browns linebacker Barkevious Mingo, Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey, Houston Texans safety Ed Reed, Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert, New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz and Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, who says he’s going to play and has for quite some time.
The really hairy situations are in the Big Apple and the Steel City as the New York Jets‘ horrific quarterback situation has gotten worse with an injury to Mark Sanchez, as head-shaking as that may sound, and now Geno Smith will get the start. The Pittsburgh Steelers are suddenly without injured running back Le’Veon Bell, but they’re apparently not worried after waiving Jonathan Dwyer and inserting Isaac Redman into the starting role.
So there you have it — nobody knows who is playing, but it’s possible none of these players could suit up for their respective teams this weekend. If you’ve got any of them on your fantasy team, you’d be wise not to start them until you get confirmation they’re playing.
