NFL Injury Report for Week 12
Once again, injuries are a major factor in the NFL as Week 12 approaches. Teams have been hit harder than ever this year it seems and that makes this weekend’s matchups more interesting. Here’s everything you need to know:
Julius Thomas is still day-to-day with a knee strain and Wes Welker missed practice this week while recovering from a concussion, so they’ll likely be game-time decisions for the Denver Broncos. Considering they is playing on Sunday night, don’t risk it if you have either of them on your fantasy football team.
Terrelle Pryor returned to practice this week, but Matt McGloin still took first-team reps and the feeling in the Bay Area is that he’ll start again in Week 12, so it’s best to sit Pryor for one more week.
The Oakland Raiders also aren’t expecting Darren McFadden to return on Sunday, so plan on Rashad Jennings toting the rock in Oakland for one more week.
Keenan Allen practiced this week, so his knee injury doesn’t appear to be serious. The San Diego Chargers say he’s going to play, so you’re fine putting him in your starting lineup.
Jordan Reed is recovering from a concussion and he’s still questionable for the Washington Redskins’ Monday night game. Since we won’t know if he’s playing until then, try to find an alternative at tight end this week if possible.
Finally, Hakeem Nicks also missed practice this week with an injured groin and right now, it doesn’t look like he’ll play agains the Dallas Cowboys. Or if he does, it will likely be in a limited role. Don’t count on him producing many fantasy points this week.
