You navigated troubled waters and have reached your destination: Championship week. Congratulations on advancing to the final week. FullTime’s Fantasy Football Injury Rundown will give you the latest news on players who may or may not be active in Week 17.
Also, be sure to join us in the FullTime Fantasy Discord Channel for injury updates throughout the week. And, check the Week 17 waiver wire suggestions for help. Now, let’s check out the Week 17 fantasy football injury rundown.
Tua Tagovailoa (QB) Miami Dolphins – Back in the NFL’s concussion protocol for the
third second time, fantasy managers should be prepared to be without Tagovailoa this week. The Dolphins should step in and protect their franchise signal-caller. Expect Teddy Bridgewater to be under center against the Patriots.
Lamar Jackson (QB) Baltimore Ravens – Jackson hasn’t practiced since injuring his PCL in Week 13. Also, since the Ravens have already clinched a playoff spot. There’s a good chance Jackson won’t be active again in the regular season.
Jalen Hurts (QB) Philadelphia Eagles – After missing one game, Hurts is angling to play this week. Philadelphia needs one win to clinch the NFC’s only bye. However, the Eagles have a more-than-capable backup in Gardner Minshew. At best, Hurts is a 50/50 proposition for Sunday’s tilt.
Tony Pollard (RB) Dallas Cowboys – Pollard (knee) missed a second consecutive practice Tuesday. The Cowboys travel to Dallas to take on the Titans on Thursday. As a result, Pollard is looking like a very questionable Week 16 option, especially on short rest.
Tyler Lockett (WR) Seattle Seahawks – Lockett sat out last week after having surgery on his broken finger. However, it is possible Lockett could return in a limited capacity this week. That said we’ll monitor Lockett’s practice participation throughout the week.
Christian Watson (WR) Green Bay Packers – Watson exited Week 16’s victory with an undisclosed left hip injury. Watson is listed as day-to-day.
Greg Dulcich (TE) Denver Broncos – Another hamstring injury is likely to end Dulcich’s season. It wouldn’t make any sense for a team that just dismissed their coach to rush a player back in a lost season. If Dulcich is done, Denver would resort to a tight-end committee in Week 17.
Antonio Gibson (RB) Washington Commanders – Gibson has an undisclosed sprain that puts his Week 17 status in doubt. Once we learn more about the location and severity of the ailment, we will update our Week 17 projections.
Antonio Gibson is dealing with a “sprain,” Rivera said. Wouldn’t reveal the body part, but sounds concerning. That injury led to more Jonathan Williams last week.

Hunter Henry (TE) New England Patriots – New England has issues with both tight ends. Henry is in danger of missing Week 17 with a knee injury. Meanwhile, Jonnu Smith exited Week 16 with a potential concussion. We’ll monitor the status of both players and update Discord when news breaks.
Will Dissly (TE) Seattle Seahawks – Seattle placed Dissly on IR with a knee injury. Because of that, Dissly’s 2022 fantasy season is over.
Jaycee Horn (CB) Carolina Panthers – A broken wrist will end Jaycee Horn’s regular season. Simultaneously, the Panthers signed veteran DB Josh Norman to fill in. However, if Carolina makes a lengthy playoff run, Horn could suit up again in January.
