NFL Week 8 Injury Roundup

By Jake 12:10am EDT 10/26/14

Vincent Jackson is good to go at home against Minnesota

Wide Receivers

Vincent Jackson –

As the trade talks swirl around Bucs receiver Vincent Jackson, he’s been listed as questionable all week long with sore ribs. However, Jackson played through the injury during Week 6 and benefitted from extra time off with a bye week. He is a strong play at home against a patchy Vikings pass defense.

A.J. Green – OUT

A.J. Green says he will be at less than hundred percent for the rest of the season because of a toe injury and will NOT suit up for the Bengals Week 8 contest against the visiting Ravens. Fantasy owners should not expect Green to return any time before Week 10.

Reggie Wayne – OUT

Reggie Wayne will NOT be in the Colts Week 8 lineup on the road against the Steelers. He hurt his elbow during Week 7 against the Bengals and his numbers have been tumbling since a big game against the Titans during Week 4.

Running Backs

Shane Vereen –

Shane Vereen has been sick and missed Friday’s practice, but is not expected to miss any time during the Patriots home matchup against the visiting Bears. He’s a solid play against a shaky Chicago defense.

Darren Sproles – OUT

Eagles running back Darren Sproles has been struggling with a knee issue since he got injured two weeks ago in a Sunday night game against the Giants. He’s been limited in practice all week long and is certainly at less than 100%

Trent Richardson – Active

No final decision has been made yet, but it looks like the Colts are going to hold Trent Richardson out of this afternoon’s game against the Steelers. Richardson is struggling with a hamstring issue. If he’s held out of the game, Ahmad Bradshaw owners could see a nice boost in production against the subpar Steelers defense.

Tight Ends

Jimmy Graham –

Jimmy Graham fantasy owners are left in a tough spot again as the banged up tight end will likely play tonight against the visiting Green Bay Packers. Graham was used only as a decoy last week against the Lions and dropped a big fat ZERO on fantasy owners. However, he is Jimmy Graham and you have no choice but to plug him into your lineup tonight and hope for the best.
