Injury News

The Bears believe WR Kevin White suffered a broken scapula (shoulder blade) in Sunday's loss to the Falcons, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That'd send White to IR and likely end his season. If that's the case, White will have played just 5 games through 3 NFL seasons.

Update: The Chicago Tribune reports that the team placed White on season-ending IR on Monday.

Steelers DE Stephon Tuitt suffered a left arm injury in the 1st quarter Sunday against Cleveland and did not return. HC Mike Tomlin called it a biceps injury after the game. An official diagnosis should be on the way by sometime Monday.

Texans WR Bruce Ellington suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. He'll need to pass through the league protocol before returning to the field.

Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz was knocked out of Sunday's opener with a concussion. He was also listed on this week's injury report with a concussion and suffered one last December. He's a long shot to be cleared ahead of Thursday night's game against the Bengals.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed is battling a fracture in his big toe, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Reed seemed to let the injury slip to the media back in mid-August. The injury "affected many other parts of his foot," and Reed "could be limited throughout the season," Rapoport adds.

Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook has been placed on IR. The rookie missed the 3rd preseason game with a core-muscle injury but returned for the 4th. It looks like he suffered a setback at some point since then. We'll keep our eyes open for more information.

Chiefs S Eric Berry ruptured the Achilles' tendon in his left leg in Thursday night's win over the Patriots. That will keep the veteran out for the rest of the season. We'll see if it impacts his availability for the start of the 2018 campaign.

Chiefs S Eric Berry suffered an Achilles' tendon injury in the 4th quarter of Thursday night's opener. It was not a promising seen as trainers and then HC Andy Reid gathered around him. We'll see about the official diagnosis, but the concern here is obviously a potential season ending rupture to the tendon.

Patriots WR Danny Amendola was knocked out of Thursday night's opener with a concussion. He was having a big one before the head injury, hauling in 6 of 7 targets for 100 yards. This is the 3rd known concussion for Amendola. We'll track his status through the protocol.

Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower hurt his right knee in Thursday night's opener. He left in the 3rd quarter and could be seen riding the stationary bike with a hot pack on the knee after being examined. New England deemed him questionable to return. The right knee is the same spot that kept him out of offseason workouts and on the training-camp PUP until late August.

The Patriots have placed WR Malcolm Mitchell on IR with a knee injury. We don't have any other details, but it's certainly worth noting that Mitchell tore an ACL in 2013 and required another surgery on the same knee in 2014. It's unclear if this latest issue is with the same knee.

Browns DE Myles Garrett suffered a high right ankle sprain in practice Wednesday. The team announced Thursday that he's expected to miss at least 2 weeks. We'll see if the issue keeps the rookie out longer.

Browns rookie DE Myles Garrett suffered a right ankle injury in Wednesday's practice. Mary Kay Cabot of reports that the #1 pick is likely headed for an MRI and that the team is worried he might miss multiple games. We'll see what further evaluation reveals.

Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz is listed on Wednesday's injury report with a concussion. It's the 1st we've heard of it. Fiedorowicz put in a full practice, putting him on track to play against the Jaguars this weekend. But the head injury is worth filing away. He also suffered a concussion last December.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll revealed on Wednesday that RB Thomas Rawls is dealing with a high-ankle sprain. He's been sidelined for about 3 weeks now and is questionable for Sunday's opener against the Packers. Rawls shouldn't be in your Week 1 fantasy plans, and it's possible he misses multiple games.

49ers TE George Kittle aggravated the hamstring injury that bothered him throughout August, HC Kyle Shanahan said. Kittle was able to put in a limited practice on Wednesday, so he has a shot to play against the Panthers this weekend. He shouldn't be in your fantasy plans, though.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has cleared the concussion protocol, according to ESPN's Field Yates. Barring a setback, he'll start against the Jets on Sunday.

The Broncos on Monday ensured that OLB Shane Ray will miss at least half the season while recovering from surgery for a torn wrist ligament. They placed him on IR to make room for QB Brock Osweiler. The team could still designate Ray for return, which seems likely given that his original return timeline would have put him back on the field before midseason.

The Broncos have placed WR Carlos Henderson (thumb) on IR. He had surgery in mid-August to repair a torn ligament in his thumb. He wasn't ready to contribute this year.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Niners will place rookie RB Joe Williams on IR with an ankle injury. Williams did leave Thursday night's preseason finale with the injury, but we hadn't heard about it being serious. This move might be motivated at least in part by Williams' lack of readiness to contribute this season. We'll see about the official diagnosis on the ankle.
