Injury News

Buccaneers S Justin Evans has opened training camp on the PUP list thanks to the combo of turf toe and a heel injury that ended his 2018 season early and kept him out all spring. HC Bruce Arians told the Tampa Bay Times this week that he has "no idea" when Evans will be ready to play. We'll see what happens with this situation.

Broncos LB Todd Davis strained his right calf (which could also be referred to as a "partial tear") in a training camp practice. ESPN's Jeff Legwold reports that Davis will miss the next 3-4 weeks. That still gives him time to be ready for the regular season. We'll see if Davis can make it back in time for the real games.

Bears S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix sustained a knee sprain at the "very end" of the team's offseason program, GM Ryan Pace told the team website. Pace expects the safety to begin training camp on the PUP list. That would mean no on-field drills initially, but Clinton-Dix could be reactivated at any time. We'll see how soon he can return.

Buccaneers DE Jason Pierre-Paul suffered a neck fracture in a single-car accident last week and is expected to require surgery, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Pierre-Paul will be visiting neck specialists later this week, with the hope that he'll be able to return at some point this season. For now, it looks like we can bet on JPP at least missing the beginning of campaign. We'll keep an eye out for further updates.

Buccaneers MLB Kwon Alexander tore the ACL in his left knee in Sunday's win over the Browns. He'll miss the rest of the season. Alexander lost 4 games to a hamstring strain in 2017 and saw his 2015 rookie campaign cut early by a 4-game PED suspension. He's set to become an unrestricted free agent at March, with his rookie contract in its final year.

Buccaneers MLB Kwon Alexander suffered a non-contact knee injury late in the 2nd quarter Sunday against the Browns. The team has ruled him out for the game. We'll see how soon a diagnosis arrives.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Bengals LB Nick Vigil will miss "about a month" after he suffered a sprained left MCL in the 1st quarter of Sunday's loss to the Steelers. Vigil lost time to right-ankle and back injuries in the 2nd half of last season, with the back injury landing him on IR. We'll see how soon he can rebound from this latest setback.

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports that Jets S Marcus Maye will miss at least 3 games after fracturing his right thumb in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's win over the Colts. Terrence Brooks replaced him in the game and could play ahead of previous fill-in Doug Middleton.

Cox Sports TV reports that Washington RB Adrian Peterson dislocated his right shoulder in Monday night's loss at New Orleans. The team announced after the game that Peterson will have an MRI on the shoulder Tuesday. We'll see about a recovery timeline after they get the results. Returns from shoulder dislocations vary, with some playing through the injury.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Titans S Kenny Vaccaro dislocated his right elbow in Sunday's win over the Eagles and is expected to miss the next 2-4 weeks.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert suffered a right ankle fracture in Sunday's win at Atlanta, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The injury will require surgery and cost Eifert the rest of the season. He hasn't played more than 13 games in a season since his 2013 rookie campaign. Eifert played just 10 total games over the past 2 years before going down in Week 4 of 2018.

Broncos TE Jake Butt tore his left ACL during Thursday's walkthrough, according to insider Mike Klis. He'll miss the rest of the season. This is Butt's 3rd ACL tear, although the first 2 were to his right knee.

Rams CB Aqib Talib will have surgery Thursday on his left ankle, HC Sean McVay confirmed in a press conference Tuesday. Talib has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain. McVay said doctors will determine his recovery timeline after the surgery.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Rams CB Aqib Talib suffered a high left ankle sprain against the Chargers on Sunday and will miss at least the next month. The 11th-year player has never played a full 16 games in a season, though his lone 2017 miss came because of a suspension for fighting with then Raiders WR Michael Crabtree.

Falcons S Ricardo Allen will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn left Achilles' tendon in Sunday's loss to the Saints, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Allen will join fellow starter S Keanu Neal on the sideline. Neal suffered an ACL tear back in Week 1 against the Eagles.

The Browns have ruled QB Tyrod Taylor out for the rest of Thursday night’s game after he suffered a concussion in the 2nd quarter against the Jets. That gives way to Baker Mayfield — possibly for good

Bills RB LeSean McCoy came away from Sunday's loss to the Chargers with multiple rib fractures, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. McCoy plans to try to play through the injury, which players have certainly done in the past. It often comes down to a pain-tolerance issue. We'll see how McCoy progresses through the week. A trip to Minnesota looms in Week 3.

UPDATE: Tests on McCoy' ribs Monday morning revealed no fracture, according to Rapoport. So it sounds like he's just dealing with a bruise. It's an injury McCoy should be able to play through.

The Ravens have announced that LB C.J. Mosley suffered a bone bruise in his right knee and is doubtful to return against the Bengals. Mosley left on the 1st defensive series and didn't return. We'll see about his availability heading into Week 3. Kenny Young filled in.

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead sat out Wednesday's practice because of a concussion, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Burkhead didn't leave Week 1 early, and Wednesday started the practice week. So we're assuming he developed symptoms sometime after the win over Houston. We'll see if Burkhead can pass through the league protocol in time for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Patriots RB Jeremy Hill will miss the rest of the season after suffering a right ACL tear in Sunday's win over the Texans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hill left the game after handling just 4 carries and blocking a punt on special teams. His injury removes 1 competitor from a crowded fantasy football backfield. Hill turns 26 in late October.
