Week 6: Injuries to monitor for all 32 teams

by Brady

Last update: 10/10/18 at 6:30pm

A lot of what I do is simply monitoring injuries. It’s very depressing. Anyway, here is what is going on with each team. Keep in mind I’m only tracking players that I think are impactful.

I’m now grouping players together by position. You’ll see them listed as QB, WR, TE, RB, OL, DL, LB, QB, S, K/P. The idea is to make it easier to see if a number of players from the same group are injured.

Arizona Cardinals:
-RT Andre Smith (hamstring) left his week 5 game and did not return.
-DT Robert Nkemdiche (foot) was INACTIVE week 5.

Atlanta Falcons:
