Injuries are the bane of a fantasy football owner’s existence. The NFL does such an amazingly poor job at reporting and acknowledging injuries and thus it makes it incredibly difficult to find useful information.
But on Friday’s the NFL has an obligation to report the true status of each player on every roster. It’s the closest we’ll get to knowing who is in or out for this week in the NFL. So the thing to do is to use this information along with the daily practice reports to sort out who is likely to play and sit this week. Only after the status reports come out on Friday does the rest of the week’s activity really make sense.
So, every Friday I will be sending you reports of all at risk players across the NFL. I’ll include the players who are definitely OUT for the week as well as those who are definitely playing. So the focus will be on the questionable players for the week. These reports will tell you whether or not you can relax or wait for the NFL inactive reports on Sunday morning.
Let’s take a look at the Week 10 Practice Reports:
Owen Daniels, TE, Ravens – Knee
Marquise Goodwin, WR, Bills – Hamstring
Marcus Easley, WR, Bills – Knee
Charles Clay, TE, Dolphins – Knee
Calvin Johnson, WR, Lions – Ankle
Reggie Bush, RB, Lions – Ankle
Tony Romo, QB, Cowboys – Back
Cecil Shorts, WR, Jaguars – Hamstring
Percy Harvin, WR, Jets – Heel
Wes Welker, WR, Broncos – Back
Andre Ellington, RB, Cardinals – Foot
Doug Baldwin, WR, Seahawks – Groin
Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers – Hamstring
Michael Campanaro, WR, Ravens – Thigh
Donnie Avery, WR, Chiefs – Groin
Dion Sims, TE, Dolphins – Toe
Eric Ebron, TE, Lions – Hamstring

Rashad Jennings, RB, Giants – Knee
Zach Miller, TE, Seahawks – Ankle
Nick Foles, QB, Eagles – Collarbone
UP IN THE AIR
Sammy Watkins, WR, Bills – Groin
Watkins has been battling a sore groin for a couple of weeks now but reinjured it at Wednesday’s practice. He did not practice on either Thursday or Friday and is a full blown game time decision for week 10. I am not overly optimistic that Watkins will make a fantasy impact this week.
Fred Jackson, RB, Bills – Groin
It is amazing that F-Jax was back at practice this week after tearing his groin to the point where it actually detached from the bone three weeks ago. He was limited each day and is still a real longshot to play this week. This is good news that Jackson should be back by week 11 however.
Lamar Miller, RB, Dolphins – Shoulder
Miller practiced on a limited basis each day this week after spraining his AC joint in his shoulder last week against the Chargers. Everybody seems to think that is a no-brainer that Miller will play but I am not overly sure about that. Daniel Thomas would get the start if Miller cannot go.
Brandon Pettigrew, TE, Lions – Foot
The Lions may get one of their top three TE’s back this week as both Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria are questionable. None of them are really fantasy worth at this time though no matter how desperate you may be for a TE.
Mark Ingram, RB, Saints – Shoulder
I am willing to bet that 80% of you had no idea that Ingram was battling a shoulder injury all week. He was able to get in limited practice all week but took on absolutely no contact in any session. A shoulder injury is quite concerning for a RB and could result in fumbles and limited touches even if he does give it a go. I am pretty sure that Ingram will play but our expectations need to be curbed quite a bit.
Harry Douglas, WR, Falcons – Foot
Douglas has been battling this foot injury for over a month. He practiced in full on Friday and will play against the Buccaneers in week 10.
Vincent Jackson, WR, Buccaneers – Knee
V-Jax made the regular progression of practice this week. He sat out Wednesday, was limited on Thursday and gave it a full go on Friday. Jackson will play this week with hopes that new QB Josh McCown can revive his struggling fantasy value.
Charles Sims, RB, Buccaneers – Ankle
Those of you who have been sitting on Sims for weeks now had better be praying that he is active this week. But the problem is that Sims is still only practicing on a limited basis at this point. Even if he does play I would have to assume that he’ll be on a very limited snap count this Sunday.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Buccaneers – Thumb
ASJ jammed his thumb at practice on Wednesday and was only able to give it a limited session the rest of the week. He should be good to go this week.
Montee Ball, RB, Broncos – Groin
It’s surprising that Ball was healthy enough to practice on a limited basis this entire week. I would expect the Broncos to sit him out one more week before returning Ball to a limited role in week 11.
Martellus Bennett, TE, Bears – Ribs
Bennett hurt his ribs during Thursday’s practice and wound up missing Friday entirely. He is going to need some heavy treatment in order to get him ready for Sunday. I would really look for another TE to have ready to go in case Bennett cannot go. Dante Rosario is Bennett’s backup in case you want to go down that road.
