Without a doubt, an injury changes the landscape of an NFL player, a team, and even a football season. For NFL fantasy football managers, it’s a nightmare to field a team with injured players. Bettors will always keep a close eye on the current NFL injury card and scrutinize the pro-football betting lines in search of bigger gains. In this NFL WeeK 8 Injury Report, we’ll take a look at the most notable absences that some NFL teams will endure in the upcoming week.
His status was questionable to start against the Colts, but he managed to be fit to play. He was forced to exit in the first quarter due to a concussion that was ruled out, but his shoulder injury worsened.
The Chargers’ tight end suffered a quad injury and had to leave the NFL matchup, adding 3 receptions, one of them for a touchdown.
While he’s not on this NFL WeeK 8 Injury Report, the discomfort he experienced in his back during the SNF game against the Eagles could impact the NFL scores for Week 8. Speedster Tyrek Hill will have to carry the offensive load if Waddle isn’t at 100%.
After the football game against the Commanders, he mentioned that he suffered an elbow hyperextension. It’s expected that it won’t escalate, and he will be the starter in the Week 8 game against the Jets, but a Saquon injury always raises alarm bells.
Detroit not only suffered a crushing defeat against Lamar Jackson’s Ravens but also lost their running back, Mohamed Ibrahim. He suffered a hip injury that required surgery on the same Sunday to heal.
