A Week That Delivered Some Heavy Blows
For this NFL Week 9 Injury Report Card, we’ve added many big and important football player names. Week 9 was an intriguing week full of surprises, with the recurrent and inevitable bad news: NFL injuries. And when we say “bad” it’s actually for the players, since the bettors will just amend their bets and go on their merry way.
Cousins will be out for the rest of the season due to an Achilles tendon rupture. The same injury that sidelined Jets’ superstar Aaron Rodgers in Week 1. Paraphrasing Cousins’s catchphrase, we can readily say: “We don’t like that!”
His absence will certainly be a nightmare for the Vikings, and their chances of climbing the NFL power rankings decrease. Cousins’s season is over with solid NFL stats, leading in touchdown passes, second in passing yards, and third in QBR.
The Giants added their tight end, Darren Waller, to the NFL injury report for Week 9. Waller has been playing with this injury since the beginning of the season, but in his last game against the Jets, he aggravated it. He’s expected to return in Week 14.
The Rams’ quarterback exited the game against the Cowboys with an apparent thumb sprain that was confirmed as a UCL sprain on Monday. Far from posting NFL 2023 MVP stats, Stafford’s absence could be a serious blow to the Rams’ slim hopes of rising in the pro football standings.
Heartbreaking news for the Pats, who were already facing quite a few problems this season. On Monday, the New England team announced that, after medical examinations, the ACL rupture in his knee is confirmed.
