We are officially 10 weeks into the 2022 NFL season and there have been a lot of gut wrenching injuries and some players that have greatly impacted our fantasy football rosters with the likes of Cooper Kupp, Zach Ertz and JuJu Smith-Schuster going down.. As we head into Week 11, we’re getting to the point that injuries that players usually come back from earlier in the year may not later in the year based on where their team sits in the standings. Let’s take a look into this week's initial injury report for our fantasy football teams heading into Week 11.



2022 NFL Injury Report Fantasy Football Week 11


NFL Quarterback Injury News 

Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals - Hamstring

UPDATE: 11/18 @ 3:00 pm ET - According to head coach Kliff Kingsbury, Murray is progressing well but is still not certain for Week 11. He's been listed as a game-time decision, so it's likely we don't get anything concrete before the overnight reports from Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport.

UPDATE: 11/17 @ 5:00 pm ET - After a report on Wednesday that Murray was trending towards not playing this week, he was back on the practice field on Thursday, albeit in limited fashion. Hamstring injuries can linger, so we'll have to see how he feels on Friday and if he's able to get back onto the practice field on Friday.

UPDATE: 11/16 @ 2:00 pm ET - It hasn't been reported by the team, but it looks as if Kyler Murray is going to miss the Cards Week 11 game and possibly beyond that. According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, the quote used was “another week or so” in regards to how much time Murray could miss.

After practicing on a limited basis to end the week, Kyler Murray could not play in Week 10 and the Cardinals picked up a win with Colt McCoy under center. Murray has an extra day this week to get back on track as the Cardinals play on Monday Night Football against the 49ers. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury has listed him as “day-to-day.” We’ll learn more about Murray’s status come Wednesday’s practice report. 

Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams - Concussion

UPDATE: 11/18 @ 4:10 pm ET - Matthew Stafford has been removed from the injury report and he's going to suit up for the Rams in Week 11. Stafford will be without his top weapon in Cooper Kupp and it's going to be tough sledding for his fantasy owners.

UPDATE: 11/17 @ 10:30 pm ET - We saw Matthew Stafford practice in full on Wednesday and has all been cleared for the Rams Week 11 game. Stafford's return will be without Cooper Kupp, so even though he's healthy, his fantasy value is limited.

In the middle of the week, Stafford showed up on the team’s injury report in the middle of the week and was placed in concussion protocol. He couldn’t play in Week 10 after being listed as doubtful heading into Sunday. Stafford being so close to playing in Week 10 makes us believe he’ll be back for Week 11, but we’ll find out more on Wednesday.

PJ Walker, Carolina Panthers - Ankle

After picking up a win this past Thursday, PJ Walker has been diagnosed with a sprained ankle that will keep him out of the Panthers' Week 11 game. We’ve seen high-ankle sprains keep players out for multiple weeks, so this is something to monitor moving forward. At least Walker has had a little extra time with the Panthers' Week 10 game coming on Thursday. Baker Mayfield has been announced as the starter and Sam Darnold will be his backup.



NFL Running Back Injury News

Leonard Fournette, Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Hip

After a great start to Sunday’s Week 10 game, Fournette left and was unable to return due to a hip injury. It’s been diagnosed as a hip pointer and with a bye coming for Tampa Bay, it couldn’t come at a better time. Because of the two weeks until the next time Tampa plays a game, it has been reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter he’ll be ready to go in Week 12 as the Bucs play the Browns.

Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas Cowboys - Knee

UPDATE: 11/17 @ 10:30 am ET - After participating in the Cowboys Wednesday walkthrough, the team officially listed him as a limited participant. We saw Elliott practice on a limited basis last week and after originally being listed as likely to play he didn't, so that's something to monitor throughout the week.

Although we saw Elliott practicing on a limited basis this past week, he was unable to play in Week 10 despite some early week optimism he’d be back. Because he was so close to playing, it feels like Elliott is likely going to return in Week 11. VP of the team, Stephen Jones, believes Elliott will be back in Week 11, but again, Jerry Jones said that he was going to play in Week 10.

Khalil Herbert, Chicago Bears - Hip

UPDATE: 11/16 @ 2:00 pm ET - With Justin Fields stealing all of the shine in Chicago you may have missed that Khalil Herbert has been placed on IR. Head coach Matt Eberflus said on Wednesday that the team expects Herbert to return to action this year. If he does return after his four week stint on the IR, Herbert is worth a stash on your fantasy football IR.

After leaving Sunday’s game with a hip injury on a kick return, he was unable to return to the game. Head coach Matt Eberflus declined to comment on the injury when asked by the media on Monday. It sounds like we’ll have to wait until Wednesday’s practice report to find out anything new about Herbert and the severity of his injury.

Gus Edwards, Baltimore Ravens - Hamstring

UPDATE: 11/18 @ 3:00 pm ET - Edwards practiced on a limited basis all week and has officially been listed as questionable by head coach John Harbaugh. Harbaugh had game planned Edwards would be active and is hoping to have him back. Kenyan Drake would take on a large chunk of the backfield work if Edwards cannot play.

UPDATE: 11/17 @ 5:00 pm ET - We've now seen Gus Edwards practice on a limited basis for two consecutive days as he's nearing a return. Edwards left the Ravens' Week 8 game with a hamstring pull and we haven't seen him since. We have a chance to see him in Week 11.

UPDATE: 11/16 @ 2:00 pm ET - After listening to head coach John Harbaugh earlier in the week, he made it seem like Edwards was going to get back on the practice field this week and that's what happened on Wednesday. Edwards is back practicing and this is a good sign for his Week 11 status.

Although the Ravens were on a bye in Week 10, we still received news on Monday that Gus Edwards likely returns in Week 11. We last saw Edwards back in Week 8, but with Kenyan Drake running well and multiple injuries racking up throughout the last few seasons for Edwards, expect somewhat of a timeshare between the two.


NFL Wide Receiver Injury News

Cooper Kupp, Los Angeles Rams - Ankle

UPDATE: 11/16 @ 2:00 pm ET - Cooper Kupp is undergoing ankle injury on Wednesday and has been placed on IR. After being placed on IR, it makes you wonder if Cooper Kupp returns again this year with where the Rams are in the standings. It's been a forgettable year in 2022 for the Rams.

When you see the video of Cooper Kupp getting hit on the play where he injured his ankle, it looks WAY worse than it’s being reported. He’s been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain that will likely keep him sidelined anywhere from three-to-six weeks, at least that’s typically what these injuries do to players. With the Rams out of their division race, it makes us wonder if we see Kupp again this year.

JuJu Smith-Schuster, Kansas City Chiefs - Concussion

UPDATE: 11/18 @ 3:00 pm ET - Kanas City has officially ruled JuJu Smith-Schuster out for the teams Week 11 game. He did not practice at all this week and remains in concussion protocol.

UPDATE: 11/17 @ 5:00 pm ET - Smith-Schuster did not practice on Thursday and is recovering from a concussion he suffered in Week 10 after taking a brutal hit over the middle.

UPDATE: 11/16 @ 3:00 pm ET - We will not see JuJu Smith-Schuster at practice on Wednesday and that is not at all surprising after seeing the hit he took in Week 10. We haven't seen many players turnaround and clear concussion protocol a week after being diagnosed with one. Especially after the hit he took in Week 10.

I’m not sure anyone understands why there was no penalty on the hit or why the referees picked up the flag, but Smith-Schuster seemingly went unconscious for a few seconds after being rocked on Sunday. He was immediately ruled out for the remainder of the game and with how serious the hit was, makes you wonder how much time he’ll miss. His mother did post on her instagram stating her son was OK, however, so that’s great to hear. We’ll here more from the Chiefs throughout the practice week.

Jerry Jeudy, Denver Broncos - Ankle

UPDATE: 11/18 @ 3:50 pm ET - The Broncos have officially ruled Jerry Jeudy for the Broncos Week 11 game against the Raiders. Head coach Nathianel Hackett told the media on Friday that he hopes to have Jeudy back in Week 12.

UPDATE: 11/18 @ 3:00 pm ET - The Broncos receiver will go the entire week without practicing and that does not bode well for his Week 11 status. Although it was listed as a “mild” injury, it still looks like it's going to cause some missed time. 

UPDATE: 11/17 @ 5:00 pm ET - We have yet to see Jeudy back on the field since leaving the Broncos Week 10 game. There is no rush to put him back on the field before he's ready to return, especially with where the Broncos sit in the standings. It was initially described as a minor ankle injury but we've heard that song and dance with guys like Chuba Hubbard and Hubbard ended up missing two games. Keep monitoring his status throughout the practice week.

Typically when you hear injuries that occur around the back of the foot, you immediately think Achilles, but Jeudy avoided anything serious and the Broncos are calling it a minor injury. So minor he could very well suit up in Week 11. The Broncos also should be realistic about playoff expectations and not rush Jeudy back, so let’s wait and see what their practice report looks like on Wednesday.

Marquise Brown, Arizona Cardinals - Foot

UPDATE: 11/16 @ 2:00 pm ET - The Arizona Cardinals designated Marquise Brown for return, so he's eligible to return over the next three weeks. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury went on record on Wednesday and said it's possible Brown returns in Week 11. We'll see how he looks throughout the week of practice.

We haven’t seen Hollywood Brown since Week 6 but we are nearing a return, which couldn’t come at a better time for Arizona considering they just lose Zach Ertz for the rest of the year. It doesn’t sound like Brown will be back in Week 1, but with a Week 13 bye week, Brown could be back on the field in Week 14.

Keenan Allen, Los Angeles Chargers - Hamstring

UPDATE: 11/17 @ 4:55 pm ET - After practicing on Wednesday, Allen was back out there on Thursday and was even seen running routes, which hasn't been seen in quite a while.  Allen hasn't finished either of the two games he's played in this year, so this type of practice activity is important.

Head coach Brandon Staley started his Week 11 by saying both Keenan Allen and Mike Williams will both be back at practice this week. Allen has not played very much this season, but it’s hard to put any faith his hamstring is going to hold up at this point. He’s played one half of a football game since injuring his hamstring way back in Week 1.

Mike Williams, Los Angeles Chargers - Ankle

UPDATE: 11/17 @ 4:55 pm ET - Just like Keenan Allen, Mike Williams was practicing on Wednesday and for the first time since his ankle sprain, was running routes. Williams hasn't played since Week 7 and now that he's logged two straight practices, he's trending upwards and likely will make his return in Week 11.

Although we’re not as optimistic about Allen’s return from injury, we should be very excited about Mike Williams’ return. He’s going to practice this week according to head coach Brandon Staley. Williams had three 100-yard games and three touchdowns in seven games prior to the injury and with Keenan Allen being a constant question mark, he’s Justin Herbert’s go-to target.

Corey Davis, New York Jets - Knee

UPDATE: 11/18 @ 3:00 pm ET - Corey Davis has been officially ruled out for the Jets Week 11 game. He has yet to practice this week, despite having a Week 10 bye week.

UPDATE: 11/17 @ 5:00 pm ET - Davis missed practice again on Thursday with the knee sprain and his status for Week 11 is very much in question. It's likely we don't see him until Week 12 at the earliest.

We haven’t seen Davis suit up since he left the Jets’ Week 7 contest but he is nearing a return as he’s gone from “week-to-week” to “day-to-day” according to head coach Rob Salah. He stayed in the building during their bye and rehabbed his knee to hopefully expedite his return. We’ll see how much he practices this week when we get the first reports on Wednesday.

KJ Hamler, Denver Broncos - Hamstring

UPDATE: 11/16 @ 2:00 pm ET - It has been a very unfortunate season for KJ Hamler this year. Hamler hasn't played since Week 8 and it doesn't seem like he's going to be back on the field anytime soon. Head coach Nathaniel Hackett said it will be a couple of weeks before Hamler will be back. Makes you wonder if we see Hamler at all for the remainder of the year.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Kansas City Chiefs - Illness

UPDATE: 11/18 @ 3:50 pm ET - Marquez Valdes-Scantling has officially been removed from the Chiefs injury report heading into their Week 11 contest. It looks as if he's over his illness and it's perfect timing considering both JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman are out.

UPDATE: 11/16 @ 5:00 pm ET - We saw MVS leave the Chiefs Week 10 game with a head injury, but was cleared to return, but is missing practice for a completely different reason as he's come down with an illness. This is something to monitor throughout the week.

Mecole Hardman, Kansas City Chiefs - Abdomen

UPDATE: 11/17 @ 4:55 pm ET - With Hardman not practicing for nearly two weeks, they've made the decision to place Mecole Hardman on IR, meaning he'll miss at least the next four weeks.

Wan'Dale Robinson, New York Giants - Hamstring

UPDATE: 11/18 @ 3:00 pm ET - After not practicing on Thursday, the Giants have listed Wan'Dale Robinson as questionable for Week 11. They gave him Thursday off to see if the hamstring would respond to rest and we're unsure if that'll happen now that he's listed questionable. He did practice on Friday and that bodes well for his status.

DeAndre Hopkins, Arizona Cardinals - Hamstring

UPDATE: 11/18 @ 4:10 pm ET - After not practicing on Wednesday and Thursday, DeAndre Hopkins was back into the fold at practice on Friday. The hammy doesn't seem to be an issue and he should be good to go for Week 11. His production did not suffer with Colt McCoy under center if that is once again the case in Week 11.

NFL Tight End Injury News

Mark Andrews, Baltimore Ravens - Shoulder/Knee

UPDATE: 11/18 @ 3:00 pm ET - According to head coach John Harbaugh, Andrews is going to be a true game-time decision. He also said we're likely not going to know until Sunday. Isaiah Likely is as elite of a backup tight end there is if Andrews doesn't end up suiting up.

UPDATE: 11/17 @ 5:00 pm ET - Andrews was asked directly if he thinks he's going to suit up in Week 11 and there wasn't nothing definitive behind him. Not much conviction at all. He was able to practice on a limited basis on Thursday, but is dealing with shoulder and knee injuries.

UPDATE: 11/16 @ 2:00 pm ET - With Baltimore coming out of a bye week we expected to see Andrews on the field when they took the practice field but that wasn't the case on Wednesday. Andrews hasn't been on the field since October 27th. We'll see how much he practices this week, but this is not a good start.

We’ve heard good news coming out of Ravens camp as head coach John Harbaugh said Mark Andrews has a really good chance at playing in Week 11. He’s been dealing with multiple injuries, but the shoulder is what’s kept him off the field.

Zach Ertz, Arizona Cardinals - Knee

This is awful news for the Cardinals as they had their best offensive game of the year on Sunday, but Ertz will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury according to NFL’s Ian Rapoport. Ertz, now 32 years young, could have a long road back to the field. We’ll get more news in the coming days on how severe the injury is.

Gerald Everett, Los Angeles Chargers - Groin

UPDATE: 11/18 @ 4:20 pm ET - The Chargers have removed Gerald Everett from their injury report ahead of the divisional match-up against the Chiefs and has practiced on a limited basis all week long. Everett was able to return last week after initially injuring his groin.

It’s something to monitor moving forward because Gerald Everett left Sunday’s game and although he did return, he was not impactful at all. Groin injuries are fickle and it could cause Everett to miss time but it’s something we’ll have to monitor throughout the week. Head coach Brandon Staley said it’s possible Everett practices this week. Tre McKitty played 78% of the snaps and would be the guy filling in for Everett if he does miss time.

David Njoku, Cleveland Browns - Ankle

UPDATE: 11/18 @ 3:00 pm ET - Njoku logged a second consecutive practice on Friday and said he's going to return for the Browns Week 11 meeting against the Bills. His high-ankle sprain has kept him out over the last three weeks.

UPDATE: 11/17 @ 5:00 pm ET - After not playing any football for three weeks, Njoku returned to practice on a limited basis on Thursday. This bodes extremely well for Week 11 as Njoku's high-ankle sprain timeline isn't any different than anyone elses. 3-to-6 weeks is the normal timeline, so we could see a return here.

UPDATE: 11/17 @ 10:30 am ET - Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski is “hopeful” that Njoku can play this week but things didn't get off to a great start with him logging a DNP on Wednesday. He's been out for three weeks at this point. This is a typical high-ankle sprain absence as it generally spans 3-6 weeks.

Cole Kmet, Chicago Bears - Thigh

UPDATE: 11/18 @ 3:00 pm ET - After being elevated from a DNP to a limited participant from Wednesday to Thursday, Kmet has been totally removed from the injury report ahead of Week 11. In fact, he's going to serve as a honorary captain for the Bears this week.

UPDATE: 11/17 @ 4:55 pm ET - After not practicing on Wednesday, Kmet was upgraded to limited on Thursday with some sort of thigh contusion. The upgraded statuses as the week is nearing the end is a great sign to his status for Week 11.

UPDATE: 11/17 @ 10:30 am ET - Although Cole Kmet sat out of practice on Wednesday, it doesn't sound like anything that will keep him out of action in Week 11, but we still need to pay attention to Thursday and Friday at Bears practice. Kmet has been a fantasy monster over the last three weeks and if he isn't practicing Thursday and Friday, make sure you have a replacement in mind.
