Randall Cobb injury



The hits keep coming in this week's Injury Cavalcade...



The Week 7 Injury Cavalcade


Alas, injuries are an unfortunate part of football, and they do tend to have an impact on our pretend game. Here are some notable injury updates, and how they may affect your decision making process this week.




Blaine Gabbert (JAX): Out


Blaine is still dealing with a hamstring injury and could be out for a while. Keep your distance.


Thad Lewis (BUF): Probable


Lewis has a sprained foot, but has practiced without limitations this week, and should start on Sunday.


Jake Locker (TEN): Doubtful


Jake is back at practice with the hip thing, but is still quite limited and will likely not suit up this Sunday.


Matt Schaub (HOU): Questionable


Schaub injured his leg against the Rams and did not return. He is trying to rehab the injury, and is currently listed as questionable. It could go either way at this point.


Michael Vick (PHI): Questionable


Vick injured his hamstring in New York two weeks ago and has been limited in practice this week. His status is still somewhat murky.


Running Backs:


Steven Jackson (ATL): Out


Jackson has a lingering hamstring injury, and did not practice Wednesday. He will miss yet another game this week, and possibly beyond.


Brandon Jacobs (NYG): Questionable


Jacobs is nursing a hamstring injury, but should be fine for Monday night.


Marshawn Lynch (SEA): Probable


Lynch missed some practice this week with a hip thing, but is expected to play on Thursday night.


DeMarco Murray (DAL): Doubtful


Murray injured his knee against the Redskins and has yet to practice this week. He will almost certainly not play this week, and his status for beyond is uncertain.


Jason Snelling (ATL): Probable


Snelling appears to have recovered from a concussion, and practiced in full Wednesday. He has been upgraded to probable, and should play on Sunday.


C.J. Spiller (BUF): Questionable


Spiller did not practice Wednesday due to the ankle, but should be fine for Sunday.


Zac Stacy (STL): Questionable


Stacy is listed as questionable with injured ribs, and did not practice Wednesday. However, he played with the injury last week and should be fine for Sunday.


James Starks (GB): Out


Starks has been ruled out again for Sunday with a knee injury.


David Wilson (NY): Out


Wilson will avoid surgery on his injured neck, but could miss up to four weeks.



Wide Receivers:


Danny Amendola (NE): Questionable


Danny was concussed against the Saints, and has not practiced this week. It does not look good for Sunday.


Justin Blackmon (JAX): Questionable


Blackmon is dealing with a groin/hamstring dilemma, and missed practice Wednesday. He should play, but is questionable at this time.


Randall Cobb (GB): Out


Cobb injured his knee in Baltimore, and has been placed on injured reserve, although he could conceivably return later in the year. Tough break.


Julian Edelman (NE): Questionable


Julian has been limited this week with a thigh injury, but should play on Sunday.


Larry Fitzgerald (ARI): Probable


Fitz has been limited this week with the hamstring, but will be out there Thursday night.


Santonio Holmes (NYJ): Doubtful


Holmes is still dealing with the hamstring issue, and will likely miss at least one more game, perhaps more.


Andre Johnson (HOU): Questionable


Andre still has the shin thing, and has been limited in practice. However, he played last Sunday, and should be good to go this week.


Calvin Johnson (DET): Questionable


Calvin returned Sunday against the Browns after a one game absence. He is still limited, but will very likely play this week.


Steve Johnson (BUF): Questionable


Johnson is still limited with the lower back issue, and his status for Sunday is unclear at the moment.


James Jones (GB): Questionable


Jones has a knee thing, and missed practice Wednesday, but could still play on Sunday if the knee improves later this week.


Eddie Royal (SD): Questionable


Royal was knocked out of Monday night’s game with a toe injury, and missed practice Wednesday. His status for Sunday is unclear at this time.


Cecil Shorts (JAX): Questionable


Cecil injured his right shoulder early in Denver and did not return. Shorts claims he might play on Sunday, but that seems unlikely at this point.


Roddy White (ATL): Questionable


Roddy is dealing with a left hamstring injury, and has missed some practice this week. This does not bode well for Sunday.


Mike Williams (TB): Questionable


Williams missed the Philly game last week with the hamstring injury, and has been limited in practice this week, but is expected to play on Sunday.


Tight Ends:


Jimmy Graham (NO): Questionable


Jimmy injured his foot in the fourth quarter of the Patriots game, but he should return in two weeks after the Saints bye.


Rob Gronkowski (NE): Questionable


Gronk still has the back and forearm thing happening, and has been limited at practice. The wait may continue through another week.


Marcedes Lewis (JAX): Questionable


Lewis is still dealing with a calf injury, but may suit up this Sunday.


Zach Miller (SEA): Probable


Miller is back from the hamstring injury and has practiced in full this week. He is looking good for Thursday night.


Greg Olsen (CAR): Questionable


Olsen is currently in a walking boot, and did not practice Wednesday. His status is uncertain, but it does not look good for Sunday at the moment.


Tony Scheffler (DET): Doubtful


Tony has been concussed, and will probably not play again this week.




Not one kicker this week. Oh well.


Well, that is all for now. Until next time, denizens of Fantasyland. Remember, fortune favors the bold.
