The playoffs are right around the corner. Unfortunately, injuries seem to be mounting at the worst time. Our Fantasy Football Injury Rundown goes though all the injuries you need to be aware of.
Here are the key fantasy-relevant injury situations we’ll be monitoring with the fantasy football injury rundown. Both for this week’s action and moving forward. Also, be sure to check out our Week 10 waiver wire and FAAB recommendations.
Josh Allen (QB) Buffalo Bills – Allen injured his UCL on Buffalo’s final drive but finished the game. The severity of the elbow injury is still to be determined. But it appears that Allen has avoided a full ligament tear and should be able to practice and play through the injury. After the initial hit, Allen uncorked a 70-yard throw, which is a good sign.
Aaron Jones (RB) Green Bay Packers – Jones exited Week 9 with an ankle injury and did not return. Early indications are the team isn’t concerned about Jones’s Week 10 availability. However, monitoring this week’s practice participation will be a better indicator.
Ezekiel Elliott (RB) Dallas Cowboys – Elliott sat out last week with a “minor” knee injury. However, Elliott wasn’t seen at practice Monday. As long as Elliott is able to practice later this week he should be back in action Sunday. We will update Elliott’s practice participation in the FullTime Discord.
Damien Harris (RB) New England Patriots – Harris missed Week 9 with an illness but will have the bye to recover. He should be good to go for Week 11.
Romeo Doubs (WR) Green Bay Packers – A high-ankle sprain could sideline Doubs for the rest of the fantasy season. The recovery time for this injury is typically 4-6 weeks. Green Bay is riding a 5-game losing streak and will have little incentive to rush Doubs back into action.
Treylon Burks (WR) Tennessee Titans – Absent since Week 4 with a toe injury, Burks is eligible to return from IR. However, Tennesee’s 31st-rank passing attack won’t provide Burks enough opportunities to be anything more than a desperation WR4.
Kenny Golladay (WR) New York Giants – On Tuesday, Golladay returned to practice. This was the first time Golladay has participated in practice since Week 4. The veteran wideout missed four games but hasn’t recorded a single reception since Week 1. Even if he plays, Golladay is well off the fantasy radar.
Ryan Tannehill (QB) Tennessee Titans – Tannehill has now missed two starts with an ankle injury. However, he was pretty close to suiting up Sunday night. Considering how limited the Titans’ offense has been with Malik Willis under center, we tentatively expect Tannehill to start Week 10 versus Denver.
Chuba Hubbard (RB) Carolina Panthers – Hubbard thought he could suit up last week but the Panthers erred on the side of caution. As it turns out, Carolina could have used the sophomore back in a humiliating defeat. Hubbard should return on Thursday against the Falcons.
Gus Edwards (RB) Baltimore Ravens – Edwards missed Monday night’s win with a hamstring ailment. Baltimore has a bye this week so we expect Edwards to be good to go in Week 11.
Jarvis Landry (WR) New Orleans Saints – Landry was able to participate in limited practice sessions ahead of Monday but was ultimately declared inactive. There’s a very good chance Landry will return this week versus Pittsburgh. Once cleared, Landry will reclaim slot duties from Tre’Quan Smith.
Elijah Mitchell (RB) San Francisco 49ers – The 49ers designated Mitchell to return from Injured Reserve. Mitchell has 21 days to return to action for the first time since hurting his knee in the season opener. With Christian McCaffrey now atop the depth chart, Mitchell’s fantasy appeal is severely limited.
