Week 9: Injuries to Monitor for all 32 teams

by Brady

Last update: 11/4/18 at 8:30am.

Welcome to week 9. This is a list of impactful injuries for all 32 teams. Here’s a quick breakdown of how I determine who to list:
-The player must be either a starter or part of a rotation
-The player must either miss the previous week or be injured during the previous weeks game and show up on the injury report. Or, if a player was injured mid week, I’ll include them as well.

The biggest example of players I won’t bother listing are guys that are limited in practice, but are still playing each week. For example, a player tweaks their hamstring week 3 and has to leave the game. Going into week 4, they are limited in practice. I would for sure list the player, since they missed the previous game. In week 4, they end up playing every snap. Week 5 roles around and they are still limited.  I’m not going to bother listing that player anymore – they’re clearly being limited in practice for precautionary reasons only. They are going to play, so adding them to the list is just noise.

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

Links are included for each team that will let you see their injury reports.
