Injury News

HC Pete Carroll confirmed Monday that MLB Bobby Wagner had platelet-rich plasma therapy on 1 of his knees over the weekend, according to multiple sources. Carroll said Wagner has had the procedure "a couple of times" previously and found success. Other Seahawks players have also sought the treatment in recent seasons. Wagner's expected to sit out the team's preseason opener Thursday but could return for the 2nd exhibition. The situation doesn't appear likely to affect his regular-season availability.

The Colts will miss DE Jabaal Sheard for an unspecified amount of time because of a knee injury. Fox59's Mike Chappell reports that the DE recently had surgery on a knee issue that has kept him out since the 2nd day of training camp. It's not yet clear what injury Sheard suffered or how long he'll be out. We'll watch for those details.

Buccaneers LB Lavonte David had a partial tear of his left meniscus repaired Sunday, according to multiple reports. HC Bruce Arians downplayed the arthroscopic surgery and said he expects David to be ready for the regular season. We'll see whether he can make it back in time.

Niners DE Dee Ford has tendinitis in his left knee that will keep him out of practice for at least the next week. HC Kyle Shanahan gave reporters that timeline Friday while revealing that Ford underwent plasma-rich platelet treatment on the joint. We'll see whether Ford can make it back in a week and remain on the field.

The Colts will continue to be without QB Andrew Luck for the next week, HC Frank Reich told reporters Saturday. Luck is still rehabbing his strained left calf. The player and the team have downplayed the issue, but it’s starting to get worrisome. We’ll keep an eye on the situation

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill bruised his right quad in Tuesday's practice and sat out the next couple of days. He returned Friday, however, according to BJ Kissel of the team website. We don't expect further issue with the area.

Rookie Seahawks DE L.J. Collier suffered a high right ankle sprain in Tuesday's practice, multiple outlets report. The team hasn't announced an expected return timeline, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Collier is likely to miss the preseason. We'll see if the rookie can get back in time to fight for a regular-season spot in the starting lineup.

Bengals WR A.J. Green is "now expected to miss a few games" based on what his Tuesday morning clean-out ankle surgery revealed, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Rapoport delivered several varying reports on Green's outlook Tuesday, but the latest seems like the best working assumption for now. We'll keep an eye out for further details of Green's specific injury.

Bengals WR A.J. Green suffered torn ligaments in his right ankle in Saturday's practice, according to multiple reports. An MRI revealed the extent of the damage after initial reports deemed it likely a mere low-ankle sprain. Green is expected to miss 6-8 weeks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the wideout will seek further opinions but that surgery is not currently planned.

Ravens QB Robert Griffin III suffered a hairline fracture in his right thumb in Saturday's practice. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Griffin will be out 4-8 weeks, while NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says the team expects Griffin to be ready for the regular-season opener. Griffin sustained the injury when his throwing hand hit the helmet of teammate Tim Williams on follow-through.

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.
