The injury list coming out of Week 11 may not be all that long but it isn't short on impact players with notable names like Justin Fields, Kyle Pitts and Joe Mixon suffering injuries during Sunday's contests. With the fantasy football playoffs quickly coming potentially losing any of these players for extended periods of time can be a big blow. Of course, we'll still have to wait for more news Monday as there are always some bumps, bruises and soft-tissue injuries that crop up the day after. For now, we'll take the short list and figure out how to deal with it.





NFL Quarterback Injury Updates


Justin Fields, Chicago Bears (Shoulder)

Fields suffered a left shoulder injury at some point during the team's loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. He was seen after the game getting carted off to get looked at by team doctors.

Bears head coach Matt Eberflus told reporters that the team will have an update on Field's shoulder on Wednesday.


Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams (Concussion)

After missing the Rams Week 10 matchup due to a concussion Stafford returned to the lineup  in Week 11 but once again went down with a head injury during the third quarter and was eventually ruled out. 

Stafford will undergo further testing on Monday and will have to clear the leagues concussion protocols before he will be eligible to be active for the team's Week 12 matchup.

NFL Running Back Injury Updates


Joe Mixon, Cincinnati Bengals (Concussion)

During the third quarter of the Bengals matchup against the Steelers Mixon was evaluated for a concussion and ultimately ruled out. Samaje Perine has taken over as the lead back for the Bengals in his absence and has three receiving touchdowns in this game. 

Chase Edmonds, Denver Broncos (Ankle)

Edmonds was seen being carted off the sideline after suffering an apparent injury. The team soon ruled him out and some reports were that Edmonds was visibly frustrated on the sidelines prior to be taken to the locker room. Edmonds was acquired at the trade deadline by the Broncos but had limited involvement in the team's offense since his acquisition.

Jaylen Warren, Pittsburgh Steelers (Hamstring)

Steelers backup running back Jaylen Warren went down with a hamstring injury. Warren had just one catch for nine yards in this game before going down.

NFL Wide Receiver Injury Updates


Wan'Dale Robinson, New York Giants (Knee)

This is a tough blow for an already depleted Giants receiving group with reports that the Giants fear that Robinson suffered a serious knee injury. The timing of this injury comes after earlier reports in the day that free agent receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was going to be visiting that Giants following Thanksgiving with the potential that he re-signs with his former team. If Robinson is going to miss extended time the urgency to bring OBJ back to New York will be even greater.


NFL Tight End Injury Updates


Kyle Pitts, Atlanta Falcons (Knee)

Fantasy managers held their collective breaths when Pitts took a tough looking hit to his knee. While an MRI will determine the full extent of any injury suffered to the knee of Pitts there have been some reports post game that he may have avoided any serious injury.
