Kipnis is dealing with a low-ankle sprain, one suffered during the ALCS winning celebrations. He's going to be in the lineup for Game 1 and should be fine moving forward. He hit .053/.100/.211 with one homer and one RBI in 20 plate appearances in the ALCS, and will need to pick it up in order to help the Tribe take home the championship.
He limped back into the locker room gingerly but was then seem working out on the sidelines to see if he can return. He had no catches before leaving and is an afterthought in the Cardinal's offense.
Zeller (bruised right knee) is questionable for opening night and it appears Roy Hibbert will start in his place. How long can he stay in the starting lineup? Not long. As soon as Zeller's up to full speed, he'll take his spot back and is a low-end fantasy big man.
This is a hit to the Falcon's pass rush if Freeney misses any time with this quad injury.
This is not surprising as McCoy has a history of hamstring injuries. The injury he was nursing coming into week 7 was more than likely not back to 100% as he had said. Mike Gillislee will start in his place if McCoy misses any time.
With John Brown out with an injury, Nelson is stepping into his starting WR spot.
In addition to McCoy re-injuring his hamstring, the Bills also lost starting safety Aaron Williams today. He suffered an injury to the head and neck area on a block from Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry. He went to the hospital for an MRI but has since rejoined the team to travel home.
Mangold had been extremely banged up entering this game. He was down on the ground for several minutes on the Jets' second drive, and limped off extremely gingerly. He will undergo an MRI on his ankle. Losing Mangold would be a huge blow to the Jets' offense.
Evans struggled with a shoulder injury this preseason and failed to score in two appearances. He was never expected to be a part of the rotation.
