Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson left Sunday's game with a hamstring injury, and he is having tests to see how severe the damage is.
The Eagles cannot afford another injury right now, especially to someone who has a significant impact on making their quarterback look good or bad.
The Eagles play the San Francisco 49ers this week, who are dealing with some significant injuries of their own.
In one of the most bone-headed plays from Sunday (and there were a lot, so that's saying something), Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson decided to punt on fourth-and-twelve during overtime, instead of going for it. In hindsight, Pederson admits that that wasn't the best idea.
Pederson's reasoning behind the decision to punt was that it would give the Cincinnati Bengals a chance to win. To me, this says more about the team's dwindling confidence in starting quarterback Carson Wentz than anything else.
Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson looked like the latest player to go out with a severe injury last night, appearing to hurt his ankle. Turns out it was a knee sprain, and it wasn't as bad as it looked.
Video of Carson's injury went around the Twitterverse, sparking debates on whether Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Trysten Hill committed a dirty hit. Looked like it to me, tbh.
Carson will have an MRI today to determine the severity of the injury, but this is the best-case scenario for Seattle.
New England Patriots center David Andrews missed practice with an injury earlier this week, and it didn't seem that serious. Fast forward to now -- apparently he had surgery on his broken thumb, and despite attempts to try things differently, he'll likely miss time.
The Patriots play the Las Vegas Raiders this weekend.
Left tackle Tyron Smith has not practiced all week for the Dallas Cowboys, but head coach Mike McCarthy says he still has a chance to play on this week.
This doesn't sound all that optimistic to me. They could definitely use him, as they're playing against the Seattle Seahawks this week.
Understatement of the century: The Philadelphia Eagles have been disappointing so far this season. Part of that is they're bad, the other part is injuries.
One of the pieces they are hoping to get back, wide receiver Alshon Jeffrey, is not done cooking yet.
Jeffrey practiced for the first time this week, which is what sparked the optimism. Jalen Reagor is also out this week.
With starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo sidelined with an ankle injury, less-handsome backup QB Nick Mullens is set to start Sunday's game against the New York Giants.
The word on the street is the team hopes to have Garoppolo back next week, as his ankle injury isn't as bad as originally thought. But they also don't want to put him out on that godforsaken turf, that has had so many complaints.
Jacksonville Jaguars safety Andrew Wingard left last night's game with an injury, but the results are in faster than Maury's paternity tests, and the results determine that it is 'relatively minor'.
The Jaguars are coming off of a tough loss, but this is some slight good news (unless you're a Jaguars fan). Jacksonville has some extra time to rest up, as well.
With an injury to starting quarterback Drew Lock, the Denver Broncos are starting Jeff Driskel for some reason. Denver also signed QB Blake Bortles just yesterday, meaning he won't be ready to back up Jeff..... Driskel..... with just a day's notice, but I'm sure that doesn't matter because it's Jeff..... Driskel.
Meanwhile, in order for Denver to have a backup, because something is sure to happen, they promoted QB Brett Rypien to the active roster. This seems like a mean joke, but it's true.
The Broncos are playing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend, and godspeed to them, they will need it.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith Schuster has missed most of this week's practices, but he says on the Gram that he's playing this weekend, and you should start him on your fantasy team.
It's Friday, so it will be telling to see if he ends up practicing today, regardless of if he missed practice earlier in the week. The Steelers play the Houston Texans on Sunday.
