For our Week 10 injury report, the big news is about wide receiver Dez Bryant. In Week 9, Bryant left the fourth quarter because of an ankle injury.
And throughout the week, things got worse…
In addition to the ankle injury, the 29-year old receiver was also dealing with a minor knee issue. Bryant missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, and it looked like he was going to sit out in Week 10.
However, Bryant was able to get in a practice Friday and was reportedly “moving well.”
He’s still listed as questionable, but it looks like he’s going to try and be on the field against the Atlanta Falcons tomorrow.
Just make sure to double check his status on Sunday.
Here are the rest of the players who are battling through injuries this week.
Week 10 Injury Report for Quarterbacks
Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Winston was pulled after the first half in Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints because of a lingering shoulder injury. In the first half, Winston only completed seven passes and recorded just 67 passing yards.
He will miss a minimum of two games, and Ryan Fitzpatrick will get the start in his absence.
This may be the one game of the year you want to stream the defense for the New York Jets.
Week 10 Injury Report for Running Backs
Matt Forte, New York Jets
Forte had his best Fantasy performance of the season last week, scoring two touchdowns and racking up 21.60 Fantasy points.
Unfortunately, that might stand as his best game of 2017.
The veteran running back will miss Week 10, and the knee injury that’s keeping him out could cost him a few more games.
Damien Williams, Miami Dolphins
Without Jay Ajayi in the mix, Williams posted a 6-47-1 stat line as a receiver last week against the Oakland Raiders.
He’s expected to play in Week 10 despite dealing with an undisclosed illness, but he may lose touches to Kenyan Drake.
Williams averaged an abysmal 2.0 yards per carry (YPC) last week. In comparison, Drake turned nine carries into 69 rushing yards for a 7.7 YPC average.
Week 10 Injury Report for Wide Receivers
T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts
Hilton has been limited in practice this week thanks to a groin injury, and he’s listed as questionable against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Hilton went off in Week 9 against the Houston Texans, turning five receptions into 175 receiving yards and two touchdown grabs.
But with his groin injury and the fact the Steelers are allowing the second-fewest Fantasy points to wide receivers this season, keep your expectations modest for what Hilton can do if he suits up.
Zay Jones, Buffalo Bills
The rookie scored 17.3 Fantasy points in PPR leagues last week, but he’s ruled out for Week 10 because of a knee injury.
Kelvin Benjamin will make his debut as a member of the Bills this week, so we’ll see what type of rapport he has with Tyrod Taylor.
There may be too many mouths to feed and not enough passing attempts for Jones to repeat his Week 9 performance when he’s able to return.
Week 10 Injury Report for Tight Ends
Jordan Reed, Washington Redskins
Reed was able to practice in a limited capacity on Wednesday and Thursday, but he got the day off on Friday because of a hamstring issue.
But even if he can play, it’s going to be hard to trust him. Reed has only caught two touchdowns this season, and he’s averaging just 35.2 receiving yards per game.
Vernon Davis will get more work if Reed is on the sidelines.
Delanie Walker, Tennessee Titans
Walker is listed as questionable, but he’s expected to play through his ankle issues in Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
He was questionable in Week 9 against the Baltimore Ravens, but he was still able to play. Against Baltimore, Walker caught six passes for 71 yards.
