Colts WR Donte Moncrief is "day to day" with a "mild" AC sprain in his shoulder, HC Chuck Pagano said on Friday. Moncrief missed 5 games last year with a broken shoulder blade, although it doesn't seem like this is at all related. Our model has Moncrief with a 27.8% chance of injury this season.
As we continue to await Miami's decision on whether to have QB Ryan Tannehill undergo surgery on his left knee, we've at least learned the best possible case for the former 1st-round pick. According to ESPN's Jeff Darlington, the non-surgical option is to have Tannehill rest for 6-8 weeks. The regular season kicks off in a little more than 5 weeks, so consider Tannehill a long shot to play in the opener. He'll likely miss at least the first 2-3 games. And, of course, it's still possible he's done for the year.
Redskins TE Jordan Reed spoke to the media on Thursday for the 1st time since we learned of his toe issue. He revealed that the toe bothered him all last year. It felt better this spring but became a problem again when he had stem-cell treatment. "That kind of flared it up a bit on me," Reed said. "Now I'm just letting it calm down before I get out there." The specialist he visited earlier this week recommended only rest. "I've just gotta take my time, let it heal and strengthen up, then get back out there," Reed added. He remains the biggest injury risk at his position.
NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports that tests revealed no structural damage to Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's knee. He's merely dealing with a hyperextension. Tannehill still figures to miss some time, but he should be ready for Week 1. It's extremely good news after what looked like a potentially serious injury this morning.
Titans HC Mike Mularkey said Thursday that RB DeMarco Murray is dealing with a hamstring injury. He didn't practice but was out on the field in uniform, according to insider Jim Wyatt. That suggests a minor issue, but we'll keep a close eye on this one. Murray has missed just 1 game over the last 3 seasons. Our model gives him a 58.4% chance of injury in 2017.
Titans WR Corey Davis is dealing with a hamstring injury, HC Mike Mularkey announced on Thursday. He's heading for an MRI, which will show the extent of the damage. Davis was off to a strong start at camp, running with the 1st-team offense. We'll see how long this injury keeps him shelved. The rookie was limited during the spring after undergoing ankle surgery in January.
Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill re-injured his left knee on a non-contact play in Thursday's training-camp practice. That's the knee in which he partially tore his ACL last December. ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that the team is "concerned" about Tannehill's injury. We should learn more over the next 24 hours.
After Washington TE Jordan Reed visited foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson on Tuesday, HC Jay Gruden said the check revealed "nothing earth-shattering," according to The Washington Post. He added that "everything looked pretty good." That's obviously good news for a player who has yet to practice in training camp. Reed put in a mild workout on a side field during Wednesday's practice.
WR Jamison Crowder hasn't put in a full practice since last Friday because of a strained hamstring, according to The Washington Post. The Washington wideout did take part in limited portions of Wednesday's workout, however, and called his status "day to day" afterward. Fantasy football owners should expect him back soon, but we'll need to keep an eye on the hamstring for potential setbacks.
The 49ers watched DT DeForest Buckner suffer a left ankle sprain in Wednesday's practice, according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. Buckner got the ankle taped on the sideline and reportedly tested it but wasn't able to return. The description makes the injury sound relatively minor.
Steelers RB James Conner has been diagnosed with a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. "It appears to be minor - days," Steelers HC Mike Tomlin said. Assuming that proves true, Conner still looks like the favorite for a handcuff spot behind Le'Veon Bell in fantasy football drafts.
Giants WR Sterling Shepard has been diagnosed with a low-ankle sprain, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. That's excellent news after what looked like a potential season-ending injury just a few hours ago. Consider Shepard week-to-week for now, but we'd bet on him being ready for the start of the regular season.
Texans WR Will Fuller is undergoing surgery on his broken collarbone and is expected to miss 2-3 months, according to the Houston Chronicle's John McClain. That's significantly longer than the 7.2 weeks WRs have missed with this injury on average. McClain's timetable would put Fuller back on the field sometime between Weeks 5 and 9.
The Dolphins got S Reshad Jones back from a calf injury Wednesday, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. Jones started training camp on the non-football injury list after straining the calf while working out away from the team. Dolphins HC Adam Gase said they were being cautious with the issue, so the fact that Jones is already returning to the field suggests the team isn't worried about setbacks. We'll see how the rest of camp and the preseason goes for the safety, who's also coming back from the rotator cuff tear that ended his 2016 in October.
Giants HC Ben McAdoo called WR Sterling Shepard's injury a "rolled ankle." We should get further details soon, but Shepard evidently escaped without a serious injury. He entered training camp with a relatively clean injury history.
NJ.com's Matt Lombardo reports that Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery is dealing with a minor shoulder injury. Jeffery went down in Monday's practice and then sat out Tuesday and Wednesday. "I'm alright," he reportedly said after missing Tuesday's session. It's certainly way too early to panic, but we'll see how long it takes Jeffery to return. It was lower-body issues, of course, that got in his way near the end of his Bears tenure.
Texans WR Will Fuller broke his collarbone in practice on Wednesday, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. He's considered to be out "indefinitely." Our data shows that WRs miss an average of 7.2 weeks with a broken collarbone. That timeline would keep Fuller out through Week 2.
Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi sustained a concussion in Monday's practice, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero, and will miss "at least" a week. It's the 1st known concussion for Ajayi. He should be cleared in plenty of time for the start of the regular season, which is still more than 5 weeks away. But we'll keep an eye on him -- and file this away if he suffers another concussion at some point.
Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) avoided the PUP list and was on the field for the start of training camp over the weekend. “He got his work done," HC Pete Carroll said. "He looks good. I’m really happy that he made it through all of the work to get to this point and he is ready to go, so we take it one day at a time, but really good first impression coming back for our first camp with him." Lacy was limited all spring after last October's ankle surgery, and Seattle figures to ease him in early on in camp. He's on track to be a full-go come Week 1, but our model still shows him as an elevated injury risk.
Redskins HC Jay Gruden revealed on Tuesday that TE Jordan Reed is visiting a specialist to check on his sprained big toe. Gruden labeled Reed "day-to-day," but we're officially worried. Sending Reed to a specialist is a sign that the team is a least a bit concerned about his status. And toe injuries have a tendency to linger anyway. Reed, of course, was already 1 of the biggest injury risks in fantasy football. Our model gives him a 79.5% chance of injury this season.
Zeke's gone for a while (or is he); Sammy Watkins is gone from Buffalo; and we have a whole weekend of preseason action to break down. Lots to get to as fantasy football drafts approach ...3:08pm EDT 8/15/17 Read More
