Injuries are a part of every sport, but because of the physicality of football, we tend to see more in the NFL than we do in others. It’s a little early to speculate on which players are going to be ready or not for the start of the season at this point in the year, but we are getting some clarity as minicamps ramp up across the league. Let’s look at some of these players with lingering injuries from the 2022 season and break down new injuries some have sustained during these offseason practices to get you ready for your fantasy football drafts.


2023 Offseason NFL Injury Report

Quarterback Injury News

Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals (Knee)

Update: August 26, 2023: As Murray remains on the PUP list and the Cardinals just traded for Joshua Dobbs, there's no clear timetable for Murray's return, if he returns at all this year.

Update: July 26, 2023: Murray will begin training camp on the PUP list. It's not surprising, but it does mean that it is more likely that he won't be ready for Week 1. 

Kyler Murray tore his ACL in Week 14 of the 2022 NFL regular season, and that doesn’t bode well for an early return, especially for a mobile quarterback. He began doing squats in April, but that is the last update we have received. As for a timetable for return, it could be in September, but it’s more than likely that the Cardinals will hold him out and let Clayton Tune take the reins for the first half of the season. Even if he does return in September, he’s a risky draft pick on a team that is currently listed with a win total of 4.5.

Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals (Calf)

Update: August 21, 2023: Burrow looks to be progressing well in his rehab. Hopefully, he'll be ready to go for Week 1.

Update: August 11, 2023: Prior to the Bengals' first preseason game, Burrow was seen running and throwing on the field. It's good news for the star quarterback (and everyone who has already drafted him).

Update: July 29, 2023: It is indeed a calf strain for Burrow. He'll miss several weeks and could even miss Week 1. Not great news for one of fantasy's top quarterbacks, but if we're looking on the bright side, it's better than some alternatives. 

At practice on July 27 during a routine scramble drill, Joe Burrow came up limping and was carted off the field. Zac Taylor has initially diagnosed it as just a calf strain, which, admittedly, is the best case scenario, but it's not what you want to see in one of the AFC's top signal callers. He missed training camp last year after an emergency appendectomy and started the 2022 season with some rust, so we're hoping A) the injury isn't any worse than they initially stated and B) that when he returns, he returns at full strength.

Jimmy Garoppolo, Las Vegas Raiders (Foot)

Update: July 23, 2023: Garoppolo reportedly passed his physical and will not start the season on the PUP list. Great news for the Raiders and their receiving corps.

There was a lot that was undisclosed when the Raiders signed Jimmy Garoppolo about the nature of his surgically repaired foot and his readiness to take the field. Las Vegas actually restructured his contract to protect themselves in case Jimmy G can’t pass a physical. There is no real timetable for when that could be, as he only had the procedure in March, so we could be speculating for a while. In the event he doesn’t pass the physical, he could be released outright, and playing in a loaded AFC West, he’s someone you should avoid on your fantasy football rosters.

Aaron Rodgers, New York Jets (Calf)

Update: July 20, 2023: Rodgers was removed from the injury report during the first day of training camp, so any lingering issues should be resolved. The new guy is a full-go.

Aaron Rodgers is with a new team for the first time in his career, and he’s already dealing with some injury issues, straining his calf during OTAs. He’s been practicing, wearing a sleeve around his knee and calf, so while this should be minor, any time he potentially misses in practice is valuable time he could be building connections with his receiver room. For now, though, it looks like he’ll be able to power through.

Brock Purdy, San Francisco 49ers (Elbow)

Update: August 14, 2023: Purdy is now totally cleared and should have the starting job locked up.

Update: July 25, 2023: Good news for the 49ers today, and they announced that Purdy would not be placed on the PUP list to start training camp. It now looks to be a three-way battle for starting quarterback.

After damaging his UCL in the NFC Conference Championship, Brock Purdy waited 40 days to have surgery, putting his status for the early part of the 2023 season in jeopardy. Fortunately, he seems to be on track in his recovery, as he resumed throwing in early June. While this is good news on the injury front, there is still some controversy in the 49ers’ quarterback room with Trey Lance and Sam Darnold.

Running Back Injury News

Cordarrelle Patterson, Atlanta Falcons (Undisclosed)

Update: August 17, 2023: Head coach Arthur Smith says he expects Patterson to miss the remainder of the preseason.

Update: August 14, 2023: Patterson missed practice today after suffering an undisclosed soft tissue injury earlier in the week. We're not exactly sure what happened, but with the duo of rookie Bijan Robinson and second-year man Tyler Allgeier, they're not going to rush him back.

J.K. Dobbins, Baltimore Ravens (Undisclosed/Knee)

Update: August 14, 2023: Dobbins has been removed from the PUP list and is ready to return to practice.

Update: August 3, 2023: Head coach John Harbaugh says that he has “no idea” when Dobbins will return to practice. It's not great for his fantasy outlook when he's also trying to get a contract extension.

The Ravens placed Dobbins on the active/PUP list on Friday, July 21. He was held out of minicamp earlier this summer with a soft tissue injury, and it looks like he may still be working his way back from that. Like so many other running backs, Dobbins is also trying to get a contract extension and was threatening a hold out, and this doesn't help his chances.

Damien Harris, Buffalo Bills (Knee)

Update: August 17, 2023: Harris will be “somewhat limited” in this week's practice.

Update: August 13, 2023: Damien Harris was missing from practice Sunday, but it doesn't appear to be too serious right now. It's still worth keeping an eye on, as it could scare off some of those drafters worried about his injury history. 

Nyheim Hines, Buffalo Bills (Knee)

July 24, 2023: Nyheim Hines suffered a severe knee injury off-site over the weekend and is expected to miss the entire 2023 season. A big blow to the Bills running back room.

Miles Sanders, Carolina Panthers (Groin)

Update: August 22, 2023: Sanders went on record saying he will “absolutely” be ready for Week 1. Maybe now all the Sanders managers can relax.

Update: August 17, 2023: Hopefully this is just precautionary, but Sanders won't suit up for Friday's preseason game and may miss the rest of the preseason as he continues to rehab a groin injury.

Update: August 14, 2023: Sanders wasn't practicing today due to a groin injury he suffered earlier in the week. This could end up keeping him out for the remainder of the preseason, so we'll just have to wait and see how he looks for another month or so.

D'Onta Foreman, Chicago Bears (Chest/Ribs)

Update: August 26, 2023: Foreman was evaluated for an injury to his chest/ribs during Saturday's game against the Buffalo Bills. We don't have an update on if or how long he'll miss, but we'll be sure to update you.

Jerome Ford, Cleveland Browns (Hamstring)

Update: August 22, 2023: It will be another week of missed practice for Jerome Ford.

Update: August 14, 2023: Ford is currently listed as week-to-week.

Update: August 7, 2023: Jerome Ford left practice Monday after suffering a hamstring injury in practice. The severity of the injury isn't known at the moment, but we'll be watching closely for the diagnosis.

Chris Evans, Cincinnati Bengals (Undisclosed)

Update: August 26, 2023: After missing practice last week, Evans didn't play in the final preseason game of the year. We haven't heard about the nature of his ailment, but as one of the primary backups to Joe Mixon, we'll be watching this intently.

Tony Pollard, Dallas Cowboys (Ankle)

Update: July 28, 2023: Everything looks good for Pollard in training camp so far. He's reportedly “taking it easy,” but it looks like he's on track for a full workload for the start of the season.

Tony Pollard experienced a horrific injury in the NFC Divisional Round against the San Francisco 49ers, breaking his fibula and suffering a high-ankle injury, and while that could be detrimental for a running back, it seems that his rehab is right on schedule. He’s expected to be present when training camp starts, and with the departure of Ezekiel Elliott, this backfield belongs to him. Keep an eye out for any setbacks, but if he’s healthy, Pollard is in line for a ton of work.

Javonte Williams, Denver Broncos (Knee)

Update: August 2, 2023: More good news today. Sean Payton indicated that Williams would play some in Denver's preseason games. If all goes well, this will go down as a miraculous recovery.

Update: July 27, 2023: He's a full, go, folks. Williams was cleared for contact today. 

Update: July 23, 2023: Williams will not start training camp on the PUP list, a great sign for his availability early on in the season. 

Despite suffering a catastrophic knee injury in Week 4 of the 2022 season, Javonte Williams has already returned to the field, participating in OTAs. While this may seem like an encouraging sign, we got bit with a similar situation last year with J.K. Dobbins; he participated in training camp, said he was ready to go, then ended up missing eight games. Taking the field too early after an ACL injury can cause problems down the road, so don’t expect Williams to play for the first few weeks of the season.

David Montgomery, Detroit Lions (Undisclosed)

Update: July 28, 2023: Montgomery is a full go at training camp.

David Montgomery was held out of Lions’ practice on June 1st, but head coach Dan Campbell said “it’s nothing serious.” Since little is known about the nature of this injury, it’s hard to speculate or assess, but it sounds minor.

Jonathan Taylor, Indianapolis Colts (Ankle)

Update: August 29, 2023: After failing to find a trade partner, Taylor will miss the first four weeks of the season, as he's still on the PUP list.

Update: July 25, 2023: Taylor will start training camp on the PUP list. Another surprise addition, and, like I said in June, it should trigger some alarm bells with where you're drafting him.

An ankle injury held Jonathan Taylor out of six games last season, and it looks like he’s still not completely ready to go, being held out of practice in early June. It’s likely precautionary, as he rehabs from surgery he had to clean up the area in December, but if he doesn’t take the field during training camp, it should trigger some alarm bells with where he’s currently going at ADP.

Zack Moss, Indianapolis Colts (Arm)

Update: August 30, 2023: Moss was seen without a cast on his arm today.

Update: August 29, 2023: There is some optimism that Moss could return as early as Week 1, and with Jonathan Taylor out for at least four weeks, he would likely be the starter.

Update: July 31, 2023: Zack Moss broke his arm on Monday's practice, keeping him out at least six weeks. With the current drama around Jonathan Taylor, it's the last thing the Colts needed.

Isiah Pacheco, Kansas City Chiefs (Hand/Shoulder)

Update: August 22, 2023: Pacheco looks to be on the right timeline to start Week 1, as he suited up for practice to start the week.

Update: August 8, 2023: We got some clarity as to when Pacheco should return to action, with Andy Reid saying he expects him to suit up for Week 1 against the Lions. 

Update: July 19, 2023: Pacheco was present at the first day of training camp, but he worked off to the side and wore a yellow non-contact jersey. It's an encouraging sign that he was available, but we'll still have to keep a close eye on the situation.

Update: July 18, 2023: Reports are that Pacheco could be added to the PUP list in the coming days, putting his training camp availability up in the air.

After having surgery to repair some bones in his hand and a torn labrum, Isiah Pacheco still has no timeline for return. Head coach Andy Reid says the running back is “doing well,” but if he doesn’t get in much practice before the beginning of the season, we could see him cede some snaps to Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

De'Von Achane, Miami Dolphins (Undisclosed)

Update: August 31, 2023: Mike McDaniels expects Achane to return to practice “sooner rather than later” but won't specify when.

Update: August 21, 2023: Achane suffered a shoulder injury in this weekend's preseason game and is currently listed as week-to-week. It looks like he avoided any serious damage.

Update: August 5, 2023: After failing to suit up for practice Saturday, Achane is listed as day-to-day with an undisclosed injury. He's been a favorite out of the rookie running backs, so we hope it's nothing serious.

Jeff Wilson, Miami Dolphins (Undisclosed)

Update: August 31, 2023: Well, it's not good news for Wilson. He'll be placed on IR after the 4PM ET deadline, keeping him out at least 4 games.

Update: August 9, 2023: Wilson left practice early due to an undisclosed injury. No other details are available at this time.

Alexander Mattison, Minnesota Vikings (Undisclosed)

Update: August 26, 2023: Mattison is still listed on the injury report with an undisclosed injury and didn't play in the final preseason game of the year.

Update: August 3, 2023: It seems that whatever took him out of practice on Tuesday wasn't serious. Mattison participated in Thursday's practice.

Update: August 1, 2023: Mattison left practice Tuesday after suffering an apparent injury. Although he stayed on the sidelines the remainder of the session, something was clearly wrong. We'll be eagerly awaiting updates.

Pierre Strong, New England Patriots (Undisclosed)

Update: August 22, 2023: Strong returned to practice this week.

Update: August 14, 2023: We don't know what exactly is going on with him, but Pierre Strong didn't participate in Monday's practice. With the Patriots signing Ezekiel Elliott on Monday afternoon, we've got to watch for some potential movement on the depth chart.

Kendre Miller, New Orleans Saints (Knee)

Update: August 31, 2023: Miller didn't practice Thursday with a hamstring injury.

Update: August 16, 2023: In a bit of a quick turn-around, Miller is accompanying the Saints to join practice with the Chargers.

Update: August 14, 2023: After leaving the Saints' preseason game over the weekend, Miller has been diagnosed with a minor knee sprain. It's expected to sideline him for up to two weeks.

Update: July 21, 2023: Miller is now off the NFI list. Nothing to see here, folks!

Update: July 18, 2023: Miller was placed on the non-football injury list with an undisclosed injury. No more details remain available at this time.

One of the most hyped up rookie running backs, Kendre Miller, is being held out of mandatory minicamp with a knee injury. He is coming off a meniscus injury, so the Saints could just be taking precautions with him, but these reps are extremely valuable to a rookie, and with a potential suspension for Alvin Kamara looming, they may need Miller on the field sooner rather than later.

Breece Hall, New York Jets (Knee)

Update: August 15, 2023: One day after signing Dalvin Cook, Hall is coming off the PUP list. We should get some much-needed clarity as to how the backfield will be split with both of them practicing next week.

Update: July 30, 2023: Robert Salah says he expects Hall to begin practice in “a couple weeks.” While we want him back on the field, it may be better for his long-term health if he stays out a little longer. We'll be watching the situation closely.

Update: July 19, 2023: Hall was placed on the PUP list on the first day of the Jets' training camp. He could be removed at any time, but it doesn't bode well for his Week 1 chances, especially when the Jets have the third-best odds to land Dalvin Cook.

Breece Hall only got to take the field for six games last season before tearing his ACL, but it looks like his rehab is going extremely well. Head coach Robert Salah said, “he’s very optimistic” about Hall’s chance to take the field in Week 1, but as we’ve seen, coach speak can sometimes get us. There’s no doubt that Hall is extremely talented, but if he’s limited at all in the early part of the season, his ADP may come back to bite us.

Zonovan Knight, New York Jets (Undisclosed)

We never like to see undisclosed injuries because it's very difficult to get a timetable on their return, but that's exactly the news we got on June 22 about Zonovan Knight. With Breece Hall's status also up in the air, the Jets may have very limited options with only Michael Carter and rookie Israel Abanikanda

Elijah Mitchell, San Francisco 49ers (Abdomen)

Update: August 3, 2023: Mitchell suffered an adductor strain in practice and is expected to miss about a week. While this isn't serious at the moment, Mitchell has dealt with his share of injuries in his first two seasons, so it's something to watch.

Zach Charbonnet, Seattle Seahawks (Shoulder)

Update: August 3, 2023: Charbonnet was back at practice today. It looks like the indefinite designation was a little premature.

Update: July 30, 2023: The Seahawks' second round draft pick has missed two days of practice in a row for a shoulder issue and is out indefinitely. It's not good for the rookie trying to solidify his position on the depth chart.

Kenny McIntosh, Seattle Seahawks (Knee)

Update: August 6, 2023: McIntosh is set to miss a few weeks after suffering a knee sprain in practice Sunday. The Seattle backfield is in bad shape heading into the season.

Kenneth Walker, Seattle Seahawks (Groin)

Update: August 22, 2023: Walker has returned to practice and should be good to go for the regular season opener.

Update: August 16, 2023: While Walker has been present at practice, he's still not participating in team drills. Hopefully they're just being cautious. 

Update: August 12, 2023: The second-year running back returned to practice over the weekend. Now we can finally start to get some clarity into how the depth chart will shake out.

Update: August 3, 2023: Walker was at Thursday's practice, but he didn't have his helmet. It remains to be seen whether the Seahawks are just playing it safe with him or if the injury is more serious than they've let on.

Update: July 30, 2023: Walker missed his third straight practice today with what was revealed to be a groin injury. Three days in a row is troubling, and although we hope it's nothing serious, he's losing out on valuable time to keep his RB1 role intact from Zach Charbonnet. There is currently no timetable for his return.

Sean Tucker, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Undisclosed)

Update: July 25, 2023: Tucker has been cleared and is ready to participate in full during training camp. With the current state of Tampa Bay's backfield, it will be interesting to see how quickly he can develop.

After going undrafted, rookie Sean Tucker signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but the reason he fell out of the draft was because of a medical issue. This is concerning since that particular medical issue involved his heart, and although we don’t want to speculate, it’s never good when coaches are mum on a situation. Tucker is expected to be on the field when training camp starts, but it is a situation to monitor.

Wide Receiver Injury News

Marquise Brown, Arizona Cardinals (Foot)

Update: August 2, 2023: Brown is ramping up his activity in practice, for whatever that's worth. With just a little over four weeks until the start of the season, time is running out for him to get healthy.

The early part of the 2022 season went very well for Marquise Brown, but he suffered a foot injury towards the middle of the year that caused him to miss five games. It looks like the injury may still be lingering, as he was held out of practice earlier this week. We need more information about the situation before making any rash decisions, but being hobbled in June with a lingering injury is definitely not a good sign.

Odell Beckham, Baltimore Ravens (Undisclosed)

Update: August 18, 2023: In a not-so-good turn of events, Beckham hasn't practiced for the second day in a row. There's no news on what is preventing him from practicing, but for someone who hasn't played football in two years and was cryptically contemplating retirement, this isn't good news.

Rashod Bateman, Baltimore Ravens (Foot)

Update: August 18, 2023: Bateman is back at practice!

Update: August 4 2023: Head coach John Harbaugh said that Bateman should be “return(ing) soon” but was also vague on just when that would be. We'll be monitoring this closely in case he suffers a setback.

Update: July 24, 2023: Bateman is beginning training camp on the PUP list. Discouraging news for the promising third-year receiver (and the Ravens passing game as a whole).

Rashod Bateman missed 11 games last year, and he has yet to complete a full season in his NFL career. We don’t like using the term “injury prone,” but the fact he’s already being held out of practice is a bit of a red flag. Head coach John Harbaugh says he expects Bateman to be ready for the start of training camp, but it’s something to watch for on an offense that added Odell Beckham and Zay Flowers in the offseason.

Khalil Shakir, Buffalo Bills (Ribs)

Update: August 26, 2023: Shakir is dealing with a rib injury that kept him out of Saturday's preseason game against the Chicago Bears. We'll keep you updated on the severity as we get more details.

D.J. Chark, Carolina Panthers (Hamstring)

Update: August 29, 2023: Chark should be ready to go Week one.

Update: August 25, 2023: After suffering a hamstring injury earlier in the week, Chark won't play in the final preseason game. He has dealt with injuries every year of his professional career, so although we're hoping it won't hold him out for an extended period of time, it's something we're going to have to watch with rookie Jonathan Mingo seeing quite a few reps.

Terrace Marshall, Carolina Panthers (Back)

Update: August 29, 2023: Marshall is back on the practice field.

Update: August 17, 2023: Marshall was carted off the practice field earlier in the week with a back injury, and he has now been ruled out for Friday's preseason match. He's had a disappointing two years in the league thus far and was looking to make a name for himself in his third season. Depending on the severity of his injury, it may open the door for rookie Jonathan Mingo.

Chase Claypool, Chicago Bears (Undisclosed)

Update: August 24, 2023: After rehabbing a hamstring injury the last couple of weeks, Claypool is expected to be ready to go Week 1.

Update: August 12, 2023: Claypool is now dealing with a hamstring injury and won't play in the Bears' preseason game.

Update: July 24, 2023: In a roller coaster move, the Bears removed Claypool from the PUP list a day after placing him on it. Puzzling, but good news.

Update: July 23, 2023: The Bears have placed Chase Claypool on the PUP list. No other details regarding his injury are available at this time. 

There’s not much information on the reason Chase Claypool wasn’t at practice earlier this week, but the Bears wide receiver room needs help. This is a situation worth monitoring, as Darnell Mooney is still unavailable at the current time.

Darnell Mooney, Chicago Bears (Ankle)

Update: July 25, 2023: Mooney has been cleared for practice. Unless he suffers a flair-up, he should be good to go.

Darnell Mooney missed the last five games of the 2022 season after suffering an ankle injury, and while he’s still not practicing, there’s a good chance he’ll be ready to go when training camp begins. If he does, he’ll fall back into his more natural role as WR2 on the depth chart behind DJ Moore.

Amari Cooper, Cleveland Browns (Undisclosed)

July 23, 2023: Cooper left practice on July 23 after aggravating an undisclosed body part. However, GM Andrew Berry did say hat it was unrelated to the core muscle surgery he had during the offseason. He's considered day-to-day, so the Browns hopefully avoided a scare.

Elijah Moore, Cleveland Browns (Ribs)

Update: August 15, 2023: Moore participated in individual drills this week, but it is unclear whether or not he will suit up for the Browns' preseason game on August 17.

Update: August 14, 2023: Moore exited the Browns' first preseason game and was taken to the locker room after suffering a hard blow to his ribs. He's currently being called day-to-day,

CeeDee Lamb, Dallas Cowboys (Leg)

Update: July 26, 2023: It's official; the Cowboys' WR1 is officially off the injury report. Great news for one of the top fantasy receivers!

After leaving practice after coming up limping on June 8, CeeDee Lamb gave us all a scare. Luckily, he’s reportedly “fine” and the injury won’t keep him out of practice or training camp. Don’t scare us like that, CeeDee!

Courtland Sutton, Denver Broncos (Undisclosed)

Update: August 22, 2023: Sutton is off the injury report and is practicing in full.

Update: August 14, 2023: Sutton hasn't been a formally diagnosed with an injury but was seen working off to the side Monday instead of participating in on-field practice. The Broncos can't really handle any further subtractions to their wide receiver depth, so we hope it's nothing serious.

Jerry Jeudy, Denver Broncos (Hamstring)

August 29, 2023: In a bit of good news, Jeudy will not go on short-term IR, so hopefully he'll be back sooner rather than later.

August 24, 2023: This is not the news that the Denver Broncos need; Jerry Jeudy pulled up in practice today and was carted off after suffering a hamstring issue. We're awaiting results of the MRI to determine the severity of the injury, but his Week 1 status is up in the air with the start of the season only two weeks away.

Tim Patrick, Denver Broncos (Knee)

Update: July 31, 2023: Patrick went down with a non-contact injury at Broncos' practice, and it is feared he tore his Achilles. It's a devastating blow after he missed all of last season due to injury.

Tim Patrick is far enough along in his rehab that he’s already sprinting and running routes, apparently being cleared for everything. This is excellent news, as he’ll need the extra practice to develop in new head coach Sean Payton’s system. While he may not be super fantasy relevant, it’s a good sign to have depth in the wide receiver room on a team that was running with Kendall Hinton at times in 2022.

Kendall Hinton, Denver Broncos (Knee)

On June 28, it was announced that Kendall Hinton is questionable for Week 1 of the NFL season after he underwent a knee scope earlier this month. Reports are promising, and the Broncos are hopeful he'll be ready for training camp, but it's another blow to Denver's receiving depth if he's unable to suit up.

KJ Hamler, Denver Broncos (Pectoral)

Update: July 31, 2023: Hamler posted on Instagram that he is being treated for a heart condition. In addition to rehabbing his torn pec, he's now dealing with a medical issue . Denver waived him shortly after the announcement, and even though the plan is to re-sign him in the future, it is a big blow to their already depleted wide receiver room.

Update July 23,2023: The Broncos have placed Hamler on the Non-Football Injury list.

We’ve seen a few times that freak accidents happen when you train on your own, and that’s exactly what happened to KJ Hamler. He recently underwent surgery to repair a torn pectoral that he suffered while training on his own. Right now there’s no timetable for return.

Marvin Mims, Denver Broncos (Undisclosed)

It was revealed on July 26 that Mims suffered an injury prior training camp, but that he should be available to practice within a week of camp starting..

Amon-Ra St. Brown, Detroit Lions (Ankle)

Update: August 22, 2023: Although they said this last week, St. Brown is expected to be back at practice next week. Hopefully they're just taking it easy on the star receiver and the injury isn't more serious than they initially let on.

Update: August 17, 2023: Luckily, the injury doesn't appear to be serious, and St. Brown should return to practice next week. Phew!

Update: August 16, 2023: We don't have many details yet about the nature of the injury, but St. Brown suffered a lower leg injury in practice today. 

Jameson Williams, Detroit Lions (Leg)

Update: August 17, 2023: The Lions are shutting down Jameson Williams for the rest of the preseason with a hamstring injury. With as few reps as he's taken throughout his NFL career, this may hamper his production even when he returns from suspension.

Update: August 16, 2023: The hits just keep on coming for the Lions receiving corps. Williams also went down with a leg injury in practice today. Unless it's serious, it shouldn't affect him when he returns from his six-game suspension.

Marvin Jones, Detroit Lions (Undisclosed)

Update: July 31, 2023: The Lions removed Jones from the NFI list Monday. He's good to start practicing, adding much-needed depth to Detroit's wide receiver room.

The Lions placed Jones on the Non-Football Injury List on July 23. No other details are available about his condition at this time.

Romeo Doubs, Green Bay Packers (Hamstring)

Update: August 30, 2023: In some concerning news, Doubs still hasn't practiced this week. His availability for Week 1 is officially up in the air.

Update: August 26, 2023: Doubs is being held out of the final preseason game after suffering a hamstring injury early in the week. There's currently no timetable for return, but hopefully it's just precautionary.

John Metchie, Houston Texans (Hamstring)

Update: July 26, 2023: Metchie was cleared to practice in full at training camp. A great sign for the promising young wide receiver.

John Metchie was cleared to get back on the field after beating a form of leukemia, but now he’s being held out of practice due to a hamstring strain. This is a big deal because he hasn’t played in over a year, and if he can’t get some reps with new quarterback CJ Stroud, there will definitely be rust to shake off.

Michael Pittman, Indianapolis Colts (Hip)

Update: July 25, 2023: Pittman is healed and ready to go for training camp.

After starting minicamp, Michael Pittman left practice with a hip injury that has held him out since. Although there isn’t much news surrounding the extent of the injury, head coach Shane Steichen seemed to indicate that it was minor and shouldn’t hold him out of training camp. Great news for the Colts WR1.

Josh Downs, Indianapolis Colts (Knee)

Update: July 25, 2023: Downs is getting reps at training camp. Good news for the shiny rookie out of North Carolina.

Rookie wide receiver Josh Downs started his training early with new quarterback Anthony Richardson, going so far to have a mini session in a parking lot, but now he’s dealing with a knee injury that kept him out of the first week of OTAs. Downs is expected to have an early impact on this offense working out of the slot, so hopefully it’s not serious and he can return by training camp.

Kadarius Toney, Kansas City Chiefs (Knee)

Update: August 26, 2023: Some good news ahead of Week 1; head coach Andy Reid expects Toney to return to practice next week ahead of the first game of the season.

Update: August 16, 2023: Although we still expect him to be ready for Week 1, Toney hasn't yet returned to practice.

Update: August 8, 2023: Toney is expected to be ready for Week 1. After some uncertainty surrounding his timetable for return, those who drafted him early can breathe a sigh of relief.

Update: July 25, 2023: It was revealed that Toney had surgery to clean up some cartilage in his knee. While Andy Reid says he's hopeful that Toney can be ready for Week 1, the “hopeful” adjectives don't make it sound like he has much faith. “Toney SZN” may be over before it even began.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said Toney “tweaked” his knee during practice on July 23 and sat out for the remainder of the session. The severity of the injury is unknown, but with Toney's injury history, it's worth monitoring.

Rashee Rice, Kansas City Chiefs (Undisclosed)

Update: August 8, 2023: Rice was seen limping off the field with a trainer during Tuesday's practice. We don't have any other details, but he's been making waves in camp. Hopefully, it's nothing serious.

Davante Adams, Las Vegas Raiders (Leg)

Update: August 16, 2023: Thankfully, Adams' time away from practice was short-lived. He returned today.

Update: August 11, 2023: Adams left practice early on Friday after suffering an injury to his lower leg. The good news is that the Raiders seem to believe it's not serious and may be even healed by the time of this publishing.

Hunter Renfrow, Las Vegas Raiders (Shoulder)

Update: August 29, 2023: Renfrow is still questionable with an apparent shoulder injury, but he has returned to practice.

Update: August 22, 2023: We don't know what's going on with him, but Renfrow was seen in a non-contact jersey to open this week's practice. Not great news for a guy who was already rumored to be on the bubble after the acquisition of Jakobi Meyers.

Jalen Guyton, Los Angeles Chargers (Knee)

Guyton was placed on the PUP list to start the Chargers training camp, as he's still rehabbing an ACL tear suffered at the end of last season.

Cooper Kupp, Los Angeles Rams (Ankle)

Update: August 31, 2023: Kupp apparently suffered a setback in today's practice and is now, once again, listed as day-to-day.

Update: August 22, 2023: Although it took a little longer than expected, Kupp returned to practice this week. 

Update: August 14, 2023: While he was initially considered day-to-day, it looks like Kupp is still nursing the hamstring injury that has kept him out for two weeks already. 

Update: August 4, 2023: Kupp is considered day-to-day and isn't expected to miss much time. Everyone who drafted him in the first round can breathe a sigh of relief.

Update: August 1, 2023: Well, we spoke too soon. Kupp suffered a hamstring injury in practice Tuesday that could sideline him for several weeks. While the severity isn't known at this moment, any soft tissue injury on an older receiver is concerning and could flare up throughout the season.

Update: July 29, 2023: Kupp has looked like his old self at training camp and is showing no lingering side effects of last year's ankle injury. Great news for a somewhat rebuilding Rams offense.

Cooper Kupp is still listed as questionable after tightrope surgery to repair his ankle, and although he missed the first week of OTAs, he was on the field beginning June 6. He should be just fine by the time training camp rolls around and, barring a setback, will remain one of the top wide receivers in the league.

Jaylen Waddle, Miami Dolphins (Abdomen)

Update: August 29, 2023: Although it's not official, Waddle is optimistic about his chances to play in Week 1. 

Update: August 22, 2023: Waddle still hasn't been cleared to play in Week 1. There have been reports that he was progressing well, but with just over two weeks util the start of the season, his absence is starting to become a larger concern.

Update: August 16, 2023: Despite his progress, Waddle won't participate in practice this week.

Update: August 13, 2023: After leaving practice this weekend with an apparent abdominal injury, the Dolphins are being quiet about Jaylen Waddle's timetable for return. Head coach Mike McDaniel says he's “happy” with where is in his rehab, but with the start of the season just weeks away, we'd like to see more clarity.

Tyreek Hill, Miami Dolphins (Undisclosed)

Update: July 27, 2023: While Hill has been on the practice field to start training camp, it's looking like the injury may still be bothering him. He's had a very quiet start this offseason, and it's not clear whether that's due to the muscle injury or something else. Keep an eye on him as camp rolls along. 

We don’t have much information on this injury, either the nature or severity, but Dolphins’ head coach Mike McDaniel has said that Tyreek Hill has been limited in OTAs due to an undisclosed injury. At least he’s limited and not completely out, and it’s still early in the preseason process, so he should be just fine going into training camp.

Jordan Addison, Minnesota Vikings (Undisclosed)

Update: August 22, 2023: Addison was present in practice, but he was wearing a non-contact jersey. 

Update: August 16, 2023: The rookie is currently in concussion protocol, although it is believed to be mild.

Update: June 20, 2023: Addison is reportedly expected to be a “full go” for training camp. Great news for the exciting rookie out of USC.

The rookie wide receiver out of USC is dealing with an undisclosed injury, but he’s expected to be ready to go for training camp. Let’s hope he stays healthy, because he’s in one of the best positions to succeed out of any of the rookie wide receivers in this class.

Juju Smith-Schuster, New England Patriots (Undisclosed)

Update: July 28, 2023: Whatever was ailing Juju is a thing of the past, as he's making waves in training camp. Great news for the Patriots and their potential WR1.

Is it just me, or does it seem like a lot of the wide receivers are dealing with undisclosed injuries? Add Juju Smith-Schuster to that list, as he missed yet another day of minicamp practice. As the presumed WR1 on this roster, keep a look out for any additional details surrounding his status.

Tyquan Thornton, New England Patriots (Undisclosed)

Update: August 3, 2023: The second-year receiver has been limited in practice and is dealing with an undisclosed injury. He's likely not high on your radar outside of dynasty and very deep leagues, but it's still something to monitor in an already thin receiving corps.

Chris Olave, New Orleans Saints (Achilles)

Update: July 28, 2023: Olave looks good to go and is making waves in his second training camp. He's building a connection with Derek Carr, and whatever was ailing him during OTAs looks to be long gone.

Second-year receiver Chris Olave is dealing with some inflammation in his Achilles that forced him out of minicamp Thursday. Early reports are that it’s not serious and that his absence is precautionary, but with the lack of depth in New Orleans’ wide receiver room could be cause for concern if it develops into something more serious.

Rashid Shaheed, New Orleans Saints (Groin)

Update: August 24, 2023: Shadeed was back at practice, albeit in a limited fashion today.

Update: August 7, 2023: Although the injury may sideline Shaheed for the preseason, the Saints are confident he will be available for Week 1.

Update: August 5, 2023: Shaheed left Saturday's practice with another groin injury. It's unclear if it's the same one that kept him out over the summer, but it's a big blow to the Saints' receiving room.

Update: July 28, 2023: Shaheed has shined during training camp, putting any injury worries to rest. 

The Saints wide receiving room is really going through it, with Rashid Shaheed going down with a groin injury on Tuesday June 13. We don’t have many details as to the severity or timeline, but if Michael Thomas or Chris Olave miss any time, Shaheed will have a solid role on this offense. His absence would be notable, so hopefully the issue is only a minor one.

Tre'Quan Smith, New Orleans Saints (Groin)

Update: August 29, 2023: Smith was once again held out of practice.

Update: August 13, 2023: Smith won't play in Sunday's preseason game.

Update: August 5, 2023: The injury woes continue for the Saints, as Smith also left practice early Saturday with a groin injury. 

Sterling Shepard, New York Giants (Knee)

Update: July 30, 2023: Shepard has been removed from the PUP list and is ready to begin participating in training camp drills.

Update: July 25, 2023: It's no surprise, but Shepard is starting training camp on the PUP list.

Coming off of back-to-back years of severe injuries, Sterling Shepard is presumably “right on schedule” in rehabbing his torn ACL. Even so, his injury history makes it difficult to trust him in any format. New York doesn’t have many elite options in their wide receiver room, so if he can stay on the field, he should be their number one option, but that’s a big “if.”

Wan’Dale Robinson, New York Giants (Knee)

Update: August 29, 2023: It's official. Robinson is coming off the PUP list today ahead of the deadline. He still may not start Week 1, but it at least puts him in the mix to start within the first four weeks.

Update: August 22, 2023: Robinson was running routes, giving some hope that he will be able to start the season off the PUP list.

Update: July 25, 2023: As with Shepard, it's no surprise that Robinson isn't ready for training camp and is starting off on the PUP list. 

Wan’Dale Robinson is also coming off an ACL injury, but it seems that the tear was relatively clean, giving him hope that he can suit up in Week 1. However, the addition of rookie Jalin Hyatt may limit his playing time until he is 100% or even after. 

Allen Lazard, New York Jets (Shoulder)

Update: August 29, 2023: Lazard was back at practice today.

Update: August 24, 2023: Lazard is dealing with an AC joint injury, but it's not anything major. He's still expected to be ready for Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills.

Garrett Wilson, New York Jets (Ankle)

Update: August 5, 2023: Wilson is expected to return to practice as a full participant this week after a low-ankle sprain kept him out last week. Great news as he looks to continue building a relationship with Aaron Rodgers

Update: July 30, 2023: It was revealed today that Wilson suffered a low ankle sprain earlier this week. The Jets aren't offering any timetable for return, but they'll likely play it safe with their star receiver. 

Uh oh. Garrett Wilson injured his ankle during July 27th's practice. Robert Saleh says he doesn't believe the injury is serious, but any time your number one receiver limps to the locker room and doesn't finish practice, it's cause for concern.

Mecole Hardman, New York Jets (Abdomen)

Update: July 30, 2023: Hardman is back on the field after missing OTAs.

After suffering an abdomen injury that needed surgery last season, Mecole Hardman seems to be on track in his rehab. However, with the added wide receivers that the Jets brought in, it’s unlikely they’ll rush him back too soon or work him too hard in training camp.

Allen Robinson, Pittsburgh Steelers (Foot)

Update: July 28, 2023: After two terrible seasons with the Bears and Rams, Robinson seems to be having a standout training camp with the Steelers. 

Allen Robinson is still rehabbing a foot injury that took him out late last season, but his progress has been good. He’s been participating in 11-on-11 drills in camp, so he should be good to go to start the season.

Diontae Johnson, Pittsburgh Steelers (Undisclosed)

Update: July 29, 2023: Johnson was back at practice Saturday, and it was revealed that he left practice due to “heat related issues.” Nothing to see here, thankfully.

Johnson left in the front of cart Friday, July 28 during practice. He fell hard on his knee the day before, so that may be the issue. Hopefully it's nothing serious.

Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Seattle Seahawks (Wrist)

Update: August 29, 2023: Just less than a week after surgery, JSN was already back at practice.

Update: August 22, 2023: The promising rookie suffered a wrist injury against the Cowboys over the weekend, and will have surgery to repair it later in the week. There's currently no timetable for return, but it's a big blow to fantasy managers who had been relying on a big season from the Ohio State product.

Mike Evans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Groin)

Update: August 31, 2023: After a brief absence, Evans returned to practice today. 

Update: August 27, 2023: Evans is apparently dealing with a groin injury, although we're not sure how severe it is or if it will keep him out Week 1.

Russell Gage, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Leg)

Update: August 16, 2023: Gage just can't catch a break. He went down with a non-contact injury today that will end his season before it even began.

Update: July 30, 2023: Gage is back on the practice field.

Gage isn't practicing after a leg injury he sustained in the off-season. Todd Bowles remains tight-lipped about the nature of the ailment, but since he didn't start on the PUP list, he will hopefully be available sooner rather than later

.Treylon Burks, Tennessee Titans (Leg)

Update: August 28, 2023: Burks returned to practice Monday.

Update: August 16, 2023: Phew, it seems like Burks missed the worst of it, being diagnosed with an LCL sprain. He should only be out a couple of weeks.

Update: August 16, 2023: It's not looking good for Treylon Burks. He went down after making a spectacular catch at practice and was carted off after getting up and grabbing his knee/calf area. We're hoping it's not serious, but it did not look good, with many speculating it was an ACL/MCL ailment.

Terry McLaurin, Washington Commanders (Toe)

Update: August 31, 2023: McLaurin is still not practicing.

Update: August 24, 2023: After injuring his toe in the second preseason game, McLaurin has been diagnosed with turf toe. While the Commanders have said the MRI came back good, there is still doubt around his availability to suit up Week 1.

Tight End Injury News

Zach Ertz, Arizona Cardinals (Knee)

Update: August 30, 2023: When asked about his availability for Week 1, Ertz sounded uncertain.

Update: July 26, 2023: Ertz will start training camp on the PUP list. Much like Kyler Murray, it's not a big surprise considering the timing of the injury, and it may open the door for second-year Trey McBride to take the reins as the starter.

We haven’t received much information on a return timetable for Zach Ertz with head coach Jonathan Gannon giving all the coach speak points of he’ll return when he’s ready and vague things of that nature. It’s likely his rehab takes longer than usual, both due to the timing of the injury and Ertz’s age and recovery speed.

Kyle Pitts, Atlanta Falcons (Knee)

Update: August 27, 2023: Good news for the Falcons and the third-year weapon; he's been removed from the injury report.

Update: August 10, 2023: It's been a rollercoaster with Pitts once again this season, as he missed practice on Wednesday due to his lingering knee issue.

Update: July 29, 2023: Pitts is back on the field building chemistry with second-year quarterback Desmond Ridder

Kyle Pitts had his fair share of injuries last season, missing the final six games of the year, and now another injury has popped up, causing him to miss minicamp. After having surgery to repair his knee injury last year, this is a big cause for concern, as the risk for setbacks is huge depending on the type of injury. While we certainly hope there aren’t any hurdles in his recovery, it’s something to monitor.

Isaiah Likely, Baltimore Ravens (Undisclosed)

Update: August 17, 2023: Likely missed practice Wednesday with an undisclosed injury. Hopefully it's not serious, as he factored in to have a potentially larger role this season.

Mark Andrews, Baltimore Ravens (Undisclosed)

Update: August 30, 2023: In a little bit of encouraging news, Andrews worked out to the side today.

Update: August 28, 2023: Andrews still isn't practicing, but he should be available for Week 1, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Update: August 23, 2023: We don't really know what's going on with Andrews, but he did miss practice Wednesday with an unspecified injury. Hopefully it's nothing serious, as the season is only two weeks away.

Dawson Knox, Buffalo Bills (Leg)

Update: July 26, 2023: Knox was removed from the injury report today after suffering an injury at OTAs. Now it just comes down to a battle with the rookie Kincaid for depth chart placement.

After bringing in rookie tight end Dalton Kincaid, Dawson Knox experienced another blow Tuesday the 13th after he injured his leg in practice. It’s likely that him sitting out was precautionary, as he was present at the session and was walking with no noticeable limp or other indications of pain. Hopefully this was just a precautionary move.

Luke Schoonmaker, Dallas Cowboys (Foot)

Update: August 27, 2023: Schoonmaker is no longer on the injury report and should be ready to go to start the season.

At the start of Cowboys training camp, it was revealed that Schoonmaker is dealing with a partial tear to his plantar fascia. This is apparently more severe than a complete tear, so it could hold the rookie out throughout the duration of the offseason. 

Tucker Kraft, Green Bay Packers (Knee)

Update: August 27, 2023: The rookie has been removed from the injury report.

Update: August 6, 2023: Kraft left practice early Saturday morning after suffering a knee injury in practice. He wasn't projected for a big role in the Packers' offense, but he was still in a depth chart battle with Luke Musgrave for the starting gig.

Dalton Schultz, Houston Texans (Ribs)

Update: August 27, 2023: Schultz has been removed from the injury report.

Update: August 3, 2023: Schultz wasn't practicing Thursday with sore ribs. Hopefully it's nothing serious; a good tight end is a rookie quarterback's best friend.

Jelani Woods, Indianapolis Colts (Hamstring)

Update: August 30, 2023: In an unfortunate turn of events, Woods was placed on IR Wednesday, ending his season.

Update: August 25, 2023: Woods was once again held out of the Colts' preseason game. It looks like this hamstring issue may be more severe than they are letting on.

Update: July 31, 2023: Woods missed practice Monday with a lingering hamstring issue.

Second year man Jelani Woods missed OTAs with a hamstring injury recently, and he could be limited in mandatory minicamp. This would be a big blow to the Colts’ receiving options and quarterback Anthony Richardson’s development, as Michael Pittman and Josh Downs are also listed as questionable. Woods isn’t necessarily high on anyone’s fantasy radar, but he did show some flashes last year in a rather anemic offense.

T.J. Hockenson, Minnesota Vikings (Back)

Update: August 23, 2023: After missing practice a couple of weeks back with an illness, Hockenson was once again absent from practice Wednesday due to lower back stiffness. 

Mike Gesicki, New England Patriots (Shoulder)

Update: August 27, 2023: After a couple of practices in a non-contact jersey, Gesicki is back.

Update: August 15, 2023: Gesicki dislocated his shoulder in yesterday's practice. Although the Patriots say that the injury is “minor,” any kind of damage to the AC joint will affect mobility and is cause for concern. Hunter Henry has been making waves in camp, so even though the Patriots say they're optimistic about Gesicki's Week 1 chances to play, there's no need to rush him back.

Taysom Hill, New Orleans Saints (Abdomen)

Update: August 15, 2023: Hill suffered an oblique strain during practice. There are no details on the severity of it at this time.

C.J. Uzomah, New York Jets (Leg)

Update: July 26, 2023: After being placed on PUP just a week prior, Uzomah has been removed and is ready to participate in training camp.

Update: July 18, 2023: Uzomah was placed on the PUP list prior to the start of Jets' training camp. It may clear the way for Aaron Rodgers to develop some chemistry with Tyler Conklin in his absence.

C.J. Uzomah left June 9th’s practice after injuring his lower leg. The extent of the injury is unknown, and since the Jets canceled their mandatory minicamp, we’ll have to wait for a few weeks to get more information on the severity and when he should return.

George Kittle, San Francisco 49ers (Abdomen)

Update: August 30, 2023: Kittle won't return to practice until at least next week.

Update: August 27, 2023: It looks like the 49ers were just being cautious with Kittle, as he returned to practice this week.

Update: August 10, 2023: Kittle missed practice Thursday with an adductor strain, the same ailment that is currently holding out Elijah Mitchell. There's no news on the severity of it yet, but Kittle has dealt with his fair share of injuries over his career.

Noah Fant, Seattle Seahawks (Knee)

Update: July 30, 2023: Fant is set to come off the PUP list and begin practice this week. 

Fant was placed on the PUP list on July 26 to begin the Seahawks' training camp. He was rumored to be a cap casualty in the offseason, so it's not good news if he can't participate in camp.

Logan Thomas, Washington Commanders (Calf)

Update: August 24, 2023: After missing the majority of the month with a calf injury, Thomas returned to practice but is only doing individual drills. His status for Week 1 is still up in the air.

Update: August 13, 2023: Thomas remains absent from practice while he's nursing that calf injury.

Update: August 4, 2023: It's not good news for Logan Thomas, as he is already dealing with a calf strain issue. We've talked about this a little with Joe Burrow, but the timeline for a calf strain can vary, as you don't want to push it and risk an Achilles injury.
