It is crazy to think that we are already halfway through the Fantasy regular season. I hope all your teams are healthy and scoring lots of points for you.

I also hope that this injury report has been a helpful tool to let you know what is happening with the health of your players each week.

The Week 7 injury report is on tap and ready to pour you some knowledge about what players are hurt, and who is likely to make it back this week.

As we head into the home stretch of the Fantasy season and get looking forward to the playoffs, we hope to help you prepare your squad for the week, and weeks to come from a health standpoint.

So let’s take a look at the Week 7 injury report.

Week 7 Injury Report

 

Arizona Cardinals

John Brown, WR

Brown was limited on Thursday in practice, and missed practice on Friday with a hamstring issue. This is not the proper progression for a guy who is going to play on Monday night. Check his status Saturday, but be ready to make a contingency plan.

 

Atlanta Falcons

Leonard Hankerson, WR

Hankerson has been dealing with a hamstring and a rib injury the past few weeks. He was limited on Wednesday in practice, but has kept playing through his injuries so far this season.

Update:

Hankerson returned to full participant in practice on Friday. Expect to see him Sunday.

Roddy White, WR

White has chronic knee issues. It is never surprising that he is limited with a knee issue. When this happens on Wednesday for practices, you must watch his participation later in the week. Check here for an update on Saturday.

Update:

White was a full go in practice on Friday.

 

Baltimore Ravens

No Fantasy issues here.

 

Buffalo Bills

Tyrod Taylor, QB

Taylor was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday. This is a good sign for Taylor, who didn’t play last week. It remains to be seen if Taylor will play. The Bills play early on Sunday, as they are in London for the Yahoo game. Keep checking his status later in the week to see if he progresses.

Update:

Taylor is out this week.

Karlos Williams, RB

Williams did not make the trip to London with the team. He will be out this week.

Percy Harvin, WR

Harvin did not travel to London with the team. He will be out this week.

 

Carolina Panthers

No bad news for the Panthers.

 

Chicago Bears

Bye

 

Cincinnati Bengals

Bye

 

Cleveland Browns

Gary Barnidge, TE

Barnidge was limited in practice on Wednesday with an ankle injury. Limited is not terrible, but you will want to check back to see if Barnidge is hampered later this week.

Update:

Barnidge returned to full practice. He should be a go.

 

Dallas Cowboys

Dez Bryant, WR

Bryant is a long shot to get back this week, no matter what Dr. Jerry Jones says. While not out of the realm of possibility, it is not likely. Seeing any sort of progress is a positive for him, and if he practices, he might be able to play.

 

Denver Broncos

Bye

 

Detroit Lions

Joique Bell, RB

Bell was a full participant in practice on Wednesday. After losing Zach Zenner, and Ameer Abdullah having butterfingers, it seems likely a healthy Bell will get back in the swing of things this week.

Update:

Bell was limited on Thursday, but full practice on Friday. You should expect him to play Sunday.

Theo Riddick, RB

Riddick was limited Wednesday with a groin injury. He was able to go last week, but you will need to make sure the same is true later this week.

Update:

Riddick is listed as probably for Sunday. His groin injury doesn’t look like it will keep him out.

Eric Ebron, TE

Ebron has returned to full practices just in time for the Lions to be without Brandon Pettigrew. Expect to see Ebron this weekend.0

 

Green Bay Packers

Bye

 

Houston Texans

Arian Foster, RB

Foster was limited on Wednesday. This is not out of the ordinary for the veteran back. Keep an eye on him later in the week, but don’t panic.

Update:

Foster returned to full practices on Thursday and Friday.

Cecil Shorts III, WR

Shorts is unlikely to play this week after suffering a hamstring injury.

Update:

Shorts is out this week.

Nate Washington, WR

Washington was able to practice in full on Wednesday. With Shorts likely out this week, Washington is primed to have the second wide receiver role for the Texans.

Update:

Washington kept up his full practice slate. Expect him to get a lot of snaps on Sunday with Cecil Shorts III out.

 

Indianapolis Colts

Andre Johnson, WR

Johnson did not practice on Wednesday. This seems like it is a rest day for Johnson, but check back in case he misses more time.

Update:

Johnson returned to full practice Thursday and Friday, leading to the belief he will be full speed on game day.

Jacksonville Jaguars

T.J. Yeldon, RB

Yeldon was not at practice on Wednesday as he is still suffering from a groin injury. This early in the week it is unclear if he will make it back for the game in London. Make sure to monitor his status later in the week.

Update:

Yeldon is questionable with a groin injury. He was able to get in some limited practices this week, but you will need to get up early to see if he will be active for the London game.

Allen Hurns, WR

Hurns has been nursing injuries all season. So far they have not kept him out of game action. This week he is once again out of practice with an ankle injury. Check back to make sure he will play later in the week.

Update:

Hurns was a full participant in practice on Friday. Expect him to suit up on Sunday.

Marqise Lee, WR

Lee has been out more than he has played this year. I wouldn’t count on anything from him if you happen to roster him.

Update:

Lee is out this week.

Allen Robinson, WR

Robinson suffered a leg contusion last week. The good news here is that he was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday. Keep an eye on his status before Sunday in London.

Update:

Robinson was a full participant in practice on Friday. He is listed as probable for Sunday, so get him in your lineup.

Julius Thomas, TE

Thomas was a full participant in practice on Wednesday.

 

Kansas City Chiefs

Jeremy Maclin, WR

Maclin suffered a concussion last week. He has not passed through the protocol, and as such was not practicing Wednesday. He still has a chance to make it back this week so come back and see his progress.

Update:

Maclin returned to practice on Friday in a limited capacity. The return of symptoms can still sideline him, but it looks like he is trending toward playing. Check Sunday morning to see if he is active.

 

Miami Dolphins

Kenny Stills, WR

Stills was limited in practice on Wednesday with a back injury. His ability to participate at all lends itself to the idea that he will be able to play this weekend.

Update:

Stills returned to full practice on Friday. The newly promoted starter for the Dolphins should be a go.

 

Minnesota Vikings

Adrian Peterson, RB

Peterson was a limited participant in practice Wednesday. The finger injury he suffered last week is unlikely to keep him out this week.

Update:

Peterson was a full participant on Friday. Expect him to shine in your lineup Sunday.

Charles Johnson, WR

Johnson returned to full practice Wednesday.

Update:

Johnson was a full participant in practice all week and should be active.

Jarius Wright, WR

Wright was a full participant in practice on Wednesday.

Update:

Wright was a full participant in practice all week for the Vikings.

 

New England Patriots

Dion Lewis, RB

Lewis was limited in practice on Wednesday with an abdominal injury. He was suffering from this same affliction last week before playing. Check back later in the week, but expect him to play.

Update:

Lewis was limited all week. You will need to check his status Sunday before putting him in your lineup.

 

New Orleans Saints

Marques Colston, WR

Colston was a limited participant in practice. This is a positive development for Colston, but his shoulder injury seems like it might keep him out again this week. Come back later in the week for the update to see if he progresses.

Update:

Colston was limited all week, but is expected to be able to play this week.

New York Giants

Odell Beckham Jr., WR

Beckham Jr. was limited last week with a hamstring injury. It didn’t stop him from playing Monday night. I would suggest monitoring his status here.

Update:

Beckham returned to a limited practice on Friday. He is officially questionable so make sure he is active before starting him this week.

Reuben Randle, WR

Randle was limited in practice on Wednesday with a hamstring injury, but it was not enough to keep him out last week. I would expect to see him this week, but check again Saturday to be sure.

Update:

Randle is probable for Sunday.

 

New York Jets

Bilal Powell, RB

Powell is suffering from an ankle injury. He was not a participant in practice Wednesday, and his ability to play this week is unknown.

Update:

Powell is out this week.

 

Oakland Raiders

Nothing negative to report.

 

Philadelphia Eagles

Nelson Agholor, WR

Agholor was out of practice Wednesday. He also missed the game last Monday with an ankle injury. He will need to progress quickly to be able to play this week. Check back later in the week to see if he can do just that.

Update:

Agholor is out this week.

Riley Cooper, WR

Cooper has had some decent stats the past few weeks, but his knee is giving him issues this week. After not practicing on Wednesday, his status is not clear.

Update:

Cooper returned to a full practice on Friday. Expect him this week.

 

Pittsburgh Steelers

Ben Roethlisberger, QB

Roethlisberger has been out for a few weeks after suffering a bone bruise and MCL damage. His limited participation in practice on Wednesday is a step in the right direction. Check back to see if he will make it back later in the week.

Update:

Roethlisberger was limited all week in practice. He still has a chance to play this week, so you will need to make sure of his status pregame this week.

 

San Diego Chargers

Melvin Gordon, RB

Gordon didn’t practice on Wednesday with an ankle injury. Gordon was confident in his ability to play this weekend.

Update:

Gordon was able to get in two limited practices this week. He is officially questionable. Check his status on Sunday before the game.

Keenan Allen, WR

Allen was not participating in practice on Wednesday with a hip injury. The injury caused him to miss the fourth quarter of last week’s game, so you will need to monitor his status later in the week.

Update:

Allen is questionable, but feels like he has a shot to play. Check on him Sunday pregame.

Stevie Johnson, WR

Johnson has been out for a few weeks with a hamstring injury. Johnson was able to be a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, a good sign for his prospects.

Update:

Johnson was a full participant in practice on Friday. He should be able to go this week.

Antonio Gates, TE

Gates was not in practice on Wednesday with a knee injury. This is also possibly a veteran rest day worked in for the recently returned Gates. Keep an eye on his status later in the week.

Update:

Gates has not practiced this week. He is apparently suffering from an MCL sprain, which is often a two week injury. I don’t expect to see him, but make sure on Sunday.

 

Seattle Seahawks

No Fantasy implications for the offense here.

 

San Francisco 49ers

All offensive players look likely to go on Thursday.

 

St. Louis Rams

Tavon Austin, WR

Austin, who is suffering from a hamstring injury, was unable to practice on Wednesday. If you are using him, check back later in the week to see if he progresses.

Update:

Austin is questionable for Sunday. You need to check his status before the game this week.

 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE

Seferian-Jenkins was out of practice still as of Wednesday. He is nearing the timeline for return from his shoulder injury, but hasn’t made it back just yet. Keep an eye on his status later in the week to see if he happens to progress.

Update:

Seferian-Jenkins is out this week.

 

Tennessee Titans

Marcus Mariota, QB

Mariota was not a participant in practice on Wednesday. Mariota suffered an MCL sprain in his game last week. Mariota is hopeful he can suit up on Sunday, but it is far from certain. Check back later in the week to see how he is doing.

Update:

Mariota is out this week.

 

Washington Redskins

Matt Jones, RB

Jones returned to full practice.

Chris Thompson, RB

Thompson was unable to practice on Wednesday after suffering a neck injury last week. His status is in doubt, but he still has a shot to play this week.

Update:

Thompson is doubtful for Sunday. Don’t expect him this week.

DeSean Jackson, WR

Jackson is still not practicing with a hamstring injury. Jackson hasn’t played lately, and reportedly suffered a setback last week. Keep an eye on his status, but don’t expect him this week.

Update:

Jackson is out this week.
