Sunday Pre-Game NFL Injury News for Week 10
After a limited practice on Friday, Julio Jones is expected to play through a high ankle sprain today. He is no stranger to playing through injuries, but he remains a High Injury Risk and has been very inconsistent this season. With a Below Average Health Performance Factor, Jones could be in for a rough day against the Cowboys.
Like Jones, Bryant was limited at practice on Friday. His status is a bit more uncertain, but he has also been known to play through injuries. His numbers usually suffer when he plays hurt, and Inside Injuries analytics indicate that he will struggle if he is active. With a High Injury Risk, he is at a great risk of making his ankle injury worse or suffering another injury that could sideline him for weeks. He needs 3-4 weeks to heal fully.
Hilton was a late addition to the injury report with a groin strain and is listed as questionable. He shouldn’t play and needs three weeks to recover. Hilton has been very inconsistent this year, and his latest injury makes it very likely that he will struggle today if he does end up playing. Look for other options in your Fantasy lineups.
Crowder missed Week 9 with a hamstring strain but is on track to suit up today. Because this is a recurring injury, he needs 3-5 weeks to heal. That put him at least one week short of his Optimal Recovery Time. Crowder is a High Injury Risk and shouldn’t be in any Fantasy lineups.
After getting removed from the Broncos’ final injury report, Thomas will play today. His hamstring strain remains a concern due to his lengthy history of lower body injuries. He is a High Injury Risk and a Risky Fantasy Start due to both the injury and the quarterback situation in Denver.
Anderson tweaked his ankle in Week 9 and returned to the game. There hasn’t been much concern over how it will affect him this week, but it is a concerning injury. He has chronic ankle problems dating back to college. Anderson is now an Elevated Injury Risk with a Below Average predicted performance. Look for other options to plug into your Fantasy lineups.
Murray has been on the injury report almost every week this season. In the past it has been his hamstring, but this week it was his knee. Murray is going to suit up, but he remains a High Risk Fantasy option. If possible, keep him on your bench this week.
After a five-week layoff following knee surgery, Clay is expected to return today. He is still two weeks short of his Optimal Recovery Time, and the Bills may limit his reps in his first game back. It won’t be long before his numbers improve, but it’s too soon to trust him in Fantasy lineups unless you are desperate for a tight end.
