Week 7 Injury Report

Injuries are everywhere this week it seems.  Week 7 has proven to be one of the worst injury weeks we have had yet this season, especially at the running back position.  Here are some of the key injuries that might affect your Week 7 lineups.  We will also give our opinion on if the player will be in or out come Sunday.

LeSean McCoy – RB – Buffalo Bills – Questionable

The story seems to change every minute on what McCoy’s status is for Sunday.  As of now it looks like he will be a true game time decision.  Mike Gillislee is a very capable backup so if you are a McCoy owner do what you can to get Gillislee on your team if you haven’t already.

Backup to own: Mike Gillislee

 

Carlos Hyde – RB – San Francisco 49ers – Out

Hyde has already been ruled for Sunday’s game against the Bucs.  Mike Davis looks to be the lead back this week but Shaun Draughn should also see his usual work.

Doug Martin – RB – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Out

Martin suffered a setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury and will be out again this week and more than likely a few weeks after.

Backup to own: Jacquizz Rodgers

 

Terrell Pryor – WR – Cleveland Browns – Questionable

Pryor hasn’t practiced all week with a hamstring injury but coach Hue Jackson was optimistic he would be able to go Sunday.  Even if he plays chances are that he could be limited.  I would lean towards using a different option at wide receiver this week.

Backup to own: None

 

Joe Flacco – QB- Baltimore Ravens – Questionable

Flacco missed Wednesday and Thursday practices but was able to get some work in on Friday.  Flacco should be able to get the start against a poor Jets team.

Jordan Reed – TE – Washington Redskins – Out

Reed will once again miss a game with a concussion.  Vernon Davis will get the start in his place against a bad Lions defense.

Backup to own: Vernon Davis

 

DeSean Jackson – WR – Washington Redskins – Questionable

Jackson was able to get to practice Friday coach Jay Gruden said he looked pretty good.  I would expect him to play Sunday but if he doesn’t Pierre Garcon’s workload could go up.
