Injury News

Ravens RB Danny Woodhead is sidelined with a hamstring injury, according to the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec. It's unclear when Woodhead was hurt or how serious the injury is, but Zrebiec doesn't expect him to play the rest of the preseason. Hammy issues are always concerning, especially for a 32-year-old RB coming off a torn ACL. Woodhead has a 37.7% chance of injury in 2017, according to our model.

Giants WR Odell Beckham (ankle) could "potentially" miss the season opener against the Cowboys, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan and Dan Graziano. A separate source said it's "not out of the question he could miss a week or two of the regular season." The Giants have only announced that Beckham has a sprained ankle. We don't have any details on the location (high vs. low) or severity. “Odell has an ankle, and we’ll see how he responds to treatment," HC Ben McAdoo said Tuesday. We'll obviously be keeping a close eye on Beckham's progress over the next 18 days leading up to the Giants' opener.

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise has missed 2 days of practice with a groin strain that he initially suffered in warmups for Saturday's preseason game, according to The News-Tribune. Prosise had an MRI over the weekend, but HC Pete Carroll said it came back negative. The RB has only done some running on the side on the 2 practice days since, however. We'll see if he gets more involved and returns to full action in time for the 3rd preseason game.

A source tells NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that Giants WR Brandon Marshall will "be fine" after injuring his shoulder in Monday night's preseason game. We didn't notice Marshall get hurt -- and it never seemed like a serious concern. Consider his fantasy football stock unaffected.

Colts HC Chuck Pagano admitted on Tuesday that there's still no timeline for QB Andrew Luck's return. We've heard whispers that Luck has resumed throwing, but he remains on the PUP list. The Indy Star's Stephen Holder notes that the team has just 6 practices after this week before their season-opener against the Rams. He's starting to look doubtful to be ready for that one.

Browns RB Isaiah Crowell was a surprise scratch from Monday night's preseason game against the Giants after hurting his groin in practice Thursday, Cleveland.com reports. The issue is reportedly minor, though, and the team is said to have held him out as a precautionary move. We'll see how quickly Crowell returns to the practice field.

Giants WR Brandon Marshall suffered a shoulder injury in Monday night's preseason game against the Browns, according to ESPN's Lisa Salters. He went to the locker room for an x-ray. We'll pass along an update on Marshall when we get one. He entered the game with just a 20.6% chance of injury in 2017.

Giants WR Odell Beckham injured his ankle in the 1st half of Monday night's preseason game against the Browns. He took a hit directly to the leg but luckily was able to un-plant his foot just in time. Beckham got off the field under his own power but was in obvious discomfort. ESPN's Lisa Salters reports that OBJ is also being evaluated for a concussion. We'll update his status as soon as we learn more.

Jets HC Todd Bowles "wouldn't say definitively" that RB Matt Forte (hamstring) will be ready for Week 1, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. Forte has missed the majority of training camp. We weren't sure whether that was due to veteran deference or a legit injury. It sounds like the latter. Forte turns 32 in December, has piled up over 2,200 NFL carries and missed 5 games over the past 2 seasons. We peg him with a 62% chance of injury in 2017.

Washington activated TE Jordan Reed off the PUP list Sunday. He had spent all of training camp and the preseason sidelined with a lingering toe issue. Reed recently got a custom orthotic, which has reportedly helped with the pain. We'll see if he can avoid further setbacks and/or any compensatory issues

Lions WR T.J. Jones left Saturday's preseason game in the 2nd quarter with a hamstring injury. He opened the contest working as the team's #3 wideout, ahead of rookie Kenny Golladay. According to mLive.com, the team doesn't "seem too worried about" Jones' injury. But we'll see if it lingers and/or impacts the competition for that 3rd receiver spot.

Steelers LB Ryan Shazier returned to a full practice Friday for the 1st time since suffering a hamstring pull in the 1st week of training camp. The injury was initially believed to be minor, but Shazier failed to stay on the field in several attempts to return before Friday. He said "it feels great" after putting in the most recent workout, though. We'll see if the 4th-year LB can avoid any further setbacks this month and be ready to start the regular season.

Bengals S Shawn Williams left Saturday's game after hurting his right elbow. He went to the ground on a tackle attempt, bracing with his right hand, and the elbow hyperextended. The team ruled him out for the game. We'll see what doctors say beyond that

Bears RB Jordan Howard is not expected to play in Saturday's preseason game after suffering a minor eye injury in the team's Friday walkthrough, NFL Network reports. This doesn't seem like an issue to worry about for fantasy football owners, though.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins will miss the 2nd preseason game with a hand injury. It's the 1st we've heard of it, and we don't have any other details. HC Bill O'Brien has said Hopkins is fine and that they're just making sure he's good to go for the regular season, according to the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson. Hopkins hasn't missed a single game through 4 NFL seasons and has just an 11.6% chance of injury in 2017, according to our model.

Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) has been sidelined all week after returning to practice last Friday. HC Jim Caldwell claims it's not a setback, though. "He's just got a couple issues that he's dealing with," Caldwell said. "He's got a couple things and not quite ready yet, so hopefully he'll continue to heal and we'll get him back out there soon." Ebron has had trouble staying on the field as a pro, missing 8 games through 3 seasons. He's not off to a good start in 2017.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette said he's been sidelined with a toe injury, rather than the previously reported foot. "Someone stepped on it in practice," he added. This doesn't seem like a big deal -- and we're glad it's not related to the ankle issue that hampered Fournette throughout his final season at LSU.

Chargers LB Denzel Perryman had surgery Tuesday to repair a torn ligament in his left ankle. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the team now expects him to miss 8-10 weeks, as opposed to the initial prognosis of 4-6 weeks. Korey Toomer and Nick Dzubnar are competing for MLB snaps with the starter out.

Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring) didn't practice on Thursday and won't play in the team's 2nd preseason game, according to insider Manish Mehta. Forte missed a week with the hammy early in training camp, and it sounds like he's been on and off the field since. It's not a good look for a 31-year-old back who's missed 5 games over the past 2 seasons. We project Forte to miss 3.6 games this year.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls will miss the 2nd preseason game with what HC Pete Carroll labeled a "minor ankle issue." Remember that Rawls fractured his ankle back in 2015 -- although it's unclear if this is related, or even the same ankle. We'll keep an eye on him. Our model gives Rawls a 59.7% chance of injury this season.
