The day is nearly upon us. I can’t wait, and I bet you can’t either.
Time to check those lineups and look over any last minute waiver wire additions.
What’s that? You need to know how healthy your guys are? You need someone to write you a nice little injury report week 2 updated edition that includes the all-important Friday practices?
I’m looking out for you. I have what you need. And I’m ready and willing to share it with you right now.
So here we go with the Week 2 Injury Report, updated edition.
Week 2 Injury Report
Andre Ellington, RB
Ellington did not practice, nor did he travel with the team. He will be out this week. Get him out of your lineups.
Julio Jones, WR
Jones was a full participant in practice on Friday. This is in line with head coach Dan Quinn’s comments that Jones would be playing this week. Don’t fear Jones, and make sure he is in your lineups.
Justin Forsett, RB
Forsett was again a full participant in practice on Friday. You can insert him in your lineups this week.
Lorenzo Taliaferro, RB
Taliaferro was a full participant in practice on Friday. I’m not sure how many of you will be starting him, but if you have Forsett, I’d be rostering Taliaferro as well.
LeSean McCoy, RB
McCoy was a limited participant in practice Friday after aggravating his hamstring injury this week. Coach Rex Ryan has stated that McCoy will play, and you can take him at his word.
Jonathan Stewart, RB
Stewart was again a full participant in practice on Friday. He is safe to plug and play this week in your Fantasy lineup.
Alshon Jeffery, WR
Jeffery was not on the injury report prior to Friday. This is generally not a good thing for a player. It was reported that Jeffery did not practice on Friday after tweaking his hamstring. He is questionable this week and you will need to make sure he is active if you want to play him Sunday.
Johnny Manziel, QB
Manziel was a full participant in practice on Friday. The team has confirmed that it is Johnny time for the Browns on Sunday. I can’t imagine wanting to play anyone from this offense, but Manziel will in fact be on the field.
Josh McCown, QB
Obviously if Johnny is starting, McCown is not. He is still in the concussion protocol and has not been cleared to practice. Similarly to Manziel, I can’t imagine playing McCown, but if you were, this is not the week.
Golden Tate, WR
Tate was a limited participant on Friday with a quad injury, but is listed as probable. Unless there is a change to his health, you can expect him to play this week.
Green Bay Packers
Brian Bulaga, OT
Bulaga has been ruled out for Sundays game. This will be a boon to the Seattle defense, and a liability for the Packers offense.
T.Y. Hilton, WR
Hilton did not practice again on Friday. The colts play on Monday night so they are a day behind on practice. Keep an eye on the practice report tomorrow, but at this point I would say it seems unlikely that Hilton will play Monday night.
Rashad Greene, WR
Green was again a full participant in practice on Friday. Expect him to play this week.
Marqise Lee, WR
Lee was a limited participant in practice again Friday, but he is listed as probable for this week. I can’t imagine having him in my lineup, but if you want a speedy receiver from a team that will probably spend a fair amount of time throwing, lee fits that description.
Dion Sims, TE
Sims did not practice again Friday. It is unlikely that he will be playing on Sunday.
New Orleans Saints
C.J. Spiller, RB
Spiller was a limited participant in practice again on Friday. He is listed as questionable for the Saints game this week. You will need to see if he is active on game day before inserting him in your lineup.
New York Giants
Victor Cruz, WR
I realized this evening that I had omitted Cruz from the first injury report of the week. Allow me to fix that error. Cruz is not practicing and will not play in Week 2.
New York Jets
Antonio Cromartie, CB
Cromartie was able to be a limited participant on Friday. As the Jets game is Monday night, this is a great sign for Cromartie and the Jets. This will affect the wide outs of the Colts if he is able to get back this week.
Chris Ivory, RB
Ivory has a bit of a groin injury suffered in practice this week. He is still expected to play, but this is a Monday game. You could protect yourself by adding Zac Stacy if you are worried.
San Francisco 49ers
Reggie Bush, RB
Bush is out this week with a calf injury.
St. Louis Rams
Tre Mason, RB
Mason was again a full participant in practice on Friday. He is listed as questionable, but it is highly likely that he will play.
Todd Gurley, RB
Gurley has been practicing, but is listed as questionable. The team is preaching patience with Gurley and he may not be active. If he is active, I don’t think I would be inserting him in my lineup until I know a little more about his situation.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Mike Evans, WR
Evans was again a limited participant in practice. He told reporters that he feels 100% and is hoping to be on the field this week. Keep an eye on the actives on Sunday, but at this point I would expect him to play.
Delanie Walker, TE
Walker was a full participant in practice after missing the previous two with a wrist injury. Keep an eye on the actives, but at this point it seems like Walker is going to make it.
Jordan Reed, TE
Reed has stated that he will play after being a limited participant in practice on Friday. Check your actives on Sunday, but it sure looks like Reed will be in.
And thus ends another edition of the injury report Week 2. As always check out the active/inactive list on Sunday to make your final decisions. You are now empowered to make the changes you might need now as opposed to later and make sure you get your guy. Good luck in Week 2.
