Uncover Exclusive Picks & Predictions From Our Experts.

Injuries Galore

Browns logo Deshaun Watson – QB, Cleveland Browns (shoulder)

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.

Chargers logo Gerald Everett – TE, Los Angeles Chargers (quad)

The Chargers’ tight end suffered a quad injury and had to leave the NFL matchup, adding 3 receptions, one of them for a touchdown.

Dolphins logo Jaylen Waddle – WR, Miami Dolphins (back)

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%.

Giants logo Saquon Barkley – RB, New York Giants (elbow)

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.

Lions logo Mohamed Ibrahim – RB, Detroit Lions (hip)

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.
