Weekly report of the most important injuries with Fantasy Football impact. The weekly injury report is very useful for Fantasy because it allows us to know the players who suffered an injury during the week, to know how serious it was and, most importantly, to be able to predict their availability for subsequent weeks.
Injuries are an issue that we must face, they happen every year and it is logical in a sport with so much contact. But you should not be discouraged by having injured players, that is what the players you chose as substitutes are for and also the waivers, free agency and trades that will help you improve your team.
AMON-RA ST. BROWN (WR, LIONS)
He left a few moments of the game against the Vikings, due to an apparent leg injury. He was evaluated and returned to the match. He finished with 6 receptions for 73 yards.
A.J. GREEN (WR, CARDINALS)
In the third quarter of the game against the Rams, he suffered a knee injury. We will have to monitor his injury during the week.
BYRON PRINGLE (WR, BEARS)
He suffered a calf injury in the first quarter of the game and did not return for the matchup against the Texans.
DALLAS GOEDERT (TE, EAGLES)
He briefly walked off the field of play with a shin injury, but returned for the game against the Commanders. He finished with 3 receptions for 26 yards and 1 TD.
DALVIN COOK (RB, VIKINGS)
He was forced out of the game with a dislocated shoulder in the game against the Lions. He will have to be monitored for his performance in workouts prior to Week 4. Before leaving he had 17 carries for 97 yards and 1 TD. His status is day to day, but if Cook misses a game, Alexander Mattison would be the Vikings’ starting RB.
DAVID MONTGOMERY (RB, BEARS)
He had to go out with a leg injury (ankle) during the first quarter of the game against the Texans. Coach Matt Eberflus commented that his recovery is day by day. He will have to monitor the injury in the week.
D´ANDRE SWIFT (RB, LIONS)
He suffered a sprained shoulder in the game against the Vikings. She doesn’t appear to require surgery, but coach Dan Campbell said it was likely she could take two weeks off and return after the Week 6 bye week. Without Swift, Williams will have a lot more volume and can produce Top 12 numbers.
JAKE KUMEROW (WR, BILLS)
He left the game with an ankle injury in the first half of the game against the Dolphins. He will have to monitor the injury in the week.
JARVIS LANDRY (WR, SAINTS)
He suffered a foot injury in the game against the Panthers. Apparently it’s not serious. He will have to be aware of the medical reports during the week.
JOSH ALLEN (QB, BILLS)
He underwent X-rays after the game against the Dolphins, after suffering a blow to his hand. There is no official word on the severity of the injury yet. He completed 42 of 63 passes for 400 yards, 2 TDs. Everything indicates that it is not a serious injury.
MAC JONES (QB, PATRIOTS)
He was forced out of the game in the fourth quarter against the Ravens, due to an ankle injury (sprain). He doesn’t appear to need surgery, but he likely won’t play against the Packers in Week 4 and maybe a few more weeks.
MICHAEL THOMAS (WR, SAINTS)

GARRETT WILSON (WR, JETS)
He had to leave the field with a rib injury, but returned for the game against the Bengals.

TUA TAGOVAILOA (QB, DOLPHINS)

Coach Mike McDaniel commented after the game that he also has ankle and back pain and that he doesn’t know for sure if he’ll be able to play. He will have to monitor the injury as his next game is Thursday night. He was placed on the Dolphins’ DNP list Monday but was not placed on concussion.
