Several high-profile injuries this week. League waiver wires are gonna be as lively as an Amish butter churn. Instead of having 10 different threads, I thought we could provide updates here. Everything is very preliminary, but here is what we have thus far:
Jamal Charles - Ankle. Early indication is that it is a mild sprain. MRI scheduled tomorrow. Bear in mind that Gerhart played the week following a mild-moderate sprain....well, "played" might be an overstatement.
Ryan Matthews - Right knee. MRI upcoming. The Chargers are reportedly worried that it is a sprained MCL, which would likely mean a multi-week absence.
Knowshon Moreno - Elbow. Dislocated and possible fracture. More tests forthcoming, but early indications suggest a lengthy absence. Always possible he could get on the IR/Designated to return list. Several week absence...at best. Miller was unimpressive in relief, and left in the 4th quarter himself with an ankle..
Doug Martin - Knee. Many reports that he would start this week, but sat. Rainey had over 160 yards in relief.
DWill - Missed week 2 with a thigh issue.
RG3 - Ankle. Dislocation. Multi-week absence. May cede the job to Cousins, who played well.
Carson Palmer - Sat today with "nerve issues" in his shoulder. Drew Stanton not fantasy relevant in relief.
VD - Ankle. Left game in 4th quarter and didn't return.
A.J. Green - Right toe. MRI negative. Some speculation that this is the dreaded turf toe. Sanu with a good game, as a result.
DeSean Jackson - Left in first half with a shoulder injury, and did not return. He expressed optimism after the game that he would be fine.
Eric Decker - Hammy. Left game in 3rd quarter and did not return. Scored TD before injury.
"Hit Man" Hurns - Ankle. Reported as a sprain. X-ray results were not revealed. Was spotted on crutches after game. (Cecil Shorts missed again with a hammy).
I'm sure I missed a few. Please feel free to add other players or updates on the above players.
