The Injury Report – Week 10

By Michael Stephens

NFL Carolina Panthers at Arizona Cardinals

With almost all of the NFL’s injured offensive stars returning to action last weekend, this week’s Injury Report features a combination of small-time offensive players and big-name defensive stars. One notable situation to watch this Sunday will be the status of the Carolina Panthers’ running backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart – both are listed as questionable and will be game-time decisions versus the Falcons. On the defensive side of the ball, we have a couple of unfortunate season-ending injuries to cover as well as some “hot hands” of the IDP world (Jabari Greer and Keith Ellison) that will be missing time in week 10. Remember that this report deals only with injuries that involve an injury status of “questionable” or worse. Players who have missed significant time and remain out, or guys who are listed as probable for a given week, will be left off the report in the interest of time. So without further ado, let’s dive into the FFC’s weekly Injury Report!

The information in this injury report can also be heard as part of the Fantasy Football Cafe’s podcast, 4th and Goal by clicking THIS LINK or visiting the “podcasts” button on the left side of the page – the show also features the popular segments Cafe Talk, Locks and Flops and Would You Rather, and it goes “live” every Friday morning/early afternoon – we hope you’ll check it out!
