Geno Smith Headshot

Geno Smith will undergo an MRI to his injured knee on Monday.

Smith got the start Sunday against Baltimore, but was knocked out of the game and replaced by Ryan Fitzpatrick. There's no telling who will be the starter going forward, but it appears Fitzpatrick has regained his job for the time being especially if Smith has to miss a few games.

Jahlil Okafor Headshot

Jahlil Okafor (knee) is optimistic he will be ready for the season opener.

Okafor played in limited action in Philadelphia's preseason finale on Friday night. He'll likely play in Wednesday's opener against Oklahoma City, but he'll probably be held to under 20 minutes of action. Because of the injury he's slated to come off the bench while Joel Embiid and Dario Saric will be in the starting rotation to begin the year.

Caraun Reid Headshot

Update: Caraun Reid is out for the remainder of the game.

Reid was carted off the field in the first quarter and there was an earlier report that he was Questionable to return. Being carted off the field usually signals a serious injury so it's not a surprise he'll miss the remainder of the game, but hopefully the injury isn't too serious and he won't have to miss too much time.

Sammie Coates Headshot

Update: Sammie Coates (hand) upgraded to probable.

Coates left in the first quarter with a cut on his hand and was originally questionable to return. If he is able to come back into the game his presence will help open up the passing game as the Steelers are without Ben Roethlisberger today.

Andrew Sendejo Headshot

Andrew Sendejo sprained his ankle during Week 7's loss against the Eagles.

The Vikings suffered their first loss of the season and the bigger loss was Andrew Sendejo. Jayron Kearse replaced Sendejo at strong safety and was lucky that poor throws by Carson Wentz bailed Kearse out of giving up a big play. If he's forced to miss any time then the Vikings secondary will have some big shoes to fill in his absence.

Sammie Coates Headshot

Update: Sammie Coates (hand) is questionable to return.

Coates suffered a cut to his hand and it appears he also may have fractured his finger. He's been battling other injuries recently that made him a sketchy play even heading in to today. When he's healthy he's a great option in the passing game when the Steelers don't go to Antonio Brown or Le'Veon Bell.

Sammie Coates Headshot

Sammie Coates (finger) is heading back to the locker room.

Early reports say that Coates has a cut and fractured finger. The Steelers passing attack is already hurting enough with Ben Roethlisberger out today and with Coates out it'll make it easier for the Patriots to key in on Antonio Brown.

Caraun Reid Headshot

Update: Caraun Reid (knee) is questionable to return.

The fact that Reid is even Questionable is a surprise considering he was carted off the field and that normally signals the end of a player's day. The Chargers defense has done well enough keeping Atlanta out of the end zone so far as they hold a 7-6 lead nearing the end of the first quarter.

Caraun Reid Headshot

Caraun Reid looks to have injured his left knee and has been carted off of the field.

It's never a good sign when a player is carted off the field. Hopefully the injury isn't too serious as the Chargers could have used his production to try and slow down the high-octane Falcons offense.
