Injury News

Last update: 2/6/21 8:00 AM

This page is used to track injury news for all 32 teams. I only include players that play regularly and have significant contributions to their teams.

Players are grouped 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.

New injury rule in 2020: IR means the player is out at least 3 weeks. I’ve also listed the COVID-19 opt outs (these players are out for the year) and suspensions in the IR sections. When players are designated to return from IR, they have a 21 day practice window to either be activated or moved back to IR for the rest of the season.

Super Bowl LV
Kanas City vs Tampa Bay (KC -3, O/U 56.5)
Kansas City Chiefs: (Week 10 bye)
-WR Sammy Watkins (calf) was injured week 16 and INACTIVE week 17 – Conference Championships. Ahead of the conference championships, he was limited in practice all week and questionable. He is officially QUESTIONABLE, but got in a full practice on Friday and should return.
-RB Le’Veon Bell (knee) was INACTIVE for the conference championships after missing practice Thursday/Friday. He was added to the injury report after experiencing swelling in his knee. He will play in the super bowl.
-LT Eric Fisher (Achilles) was injured during the conference championships. He will miss the super bowl.
