    Some key stars returned in Week 9, with more on the way to return this week. Check out the Offensive Players Injury Report to see who's in and who's out.

    Week 9 was the first week without Derrick Henry, but fantasy managers were at least able to see the return of Christian McCaffrey with some more stars potentially back in Week 10. Check out the NFL Week 10 Offensive Injury Report to keep up with all the offensive injuries.

    Be sure to check back for updates as more information comes in.

    For a quick reference tool, check out the new injury tracker that I will be updating up until kickoff.


    NFL Week 10 Injury Report for Offensive Players

    Chase Edmonds, RB - Out

    Edmonds suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 9 very early in the game. He is likely to miss multiple weeks and could be placed on short-term IR. I don't expect Edmonds to return until near or during the fantasy playoffs.

    DeAndre Hopkins, WR - Questionable

    Hopkins was inactive Week 9 with a hamstring injury and will likely come down to a game-time decision in Week 10.

    Kyler Murray, QB - Questionable

    Murry sprained his ankle in Week 8 and missed Week 9 as a result. He will remain questionable for Week 10, with Colt McCoy once again filling in if Murray misses time.

    Calvin Ridley, WR - Reserve/NFI-list

    Ridley was placed on the Reserve/NFI (Non-Football Injury) list prior to Week 9 while dealing with mental health issues. The move necessitates a minimum of three weeks' absence similar to short-term IR, but he could be done for the year. If your league allows NFI players to be placed on IR, I would strongly encourage you to do that for now until new information comes out.

    Sammy Watkins, WR - Questionable

    Watkins has not played since Week 5 and remains questionable with a hamstring injury. With rookie Rashod Bateman becoming more integrated with the offense and Marquise Brown's role secured, I don't see a high chance that Watkins becomes fantasy-relevant again this season short of an injury.

    Latavius Murray, RB - Questionable

    Murray missed Weeks 7 and 9 with an ankle injury. He remains questionable for Week 10.

    Zack Moss, RB - Questionable

    Moss left Week 9 with a concussion and will have to clear concussion protocol prior to Week 10 in order to play. While not impossible, the past two seasons have shown that players are unlikely to play the week following a concussion.

    Cole Beasley, WR - Questionable

    Beasley played the entirety of Week 9 but was questionable with a rib injury leading up to the game. He may have several limited practices leading up to Week 10 as well. With running back Zack Moss likely to miss next week, Beasley may continue to get a few carries out of the backfield in addition to his normal amount of targets.

    Dawson Knox, TE - Questionable

    Knox left Week 6 with a hand injury that was later revealed to be a broken bone that required surgery. The initial timeline for the injury was three weeks, meaning he should be back in Week 10 but remains questionable for the time being.

    Christian McCaffrey, RB - Questionable

    McCaffrey returned to the field in Week 9 and totaled 18 touches. Teammate Chuba Hubbard still had some involvement, so McCaffrey could see his opportunities and production increase as he gets back to full health.

    Sam Darnold, QB - Questionable

    Darnold cleared concussion protocol and started in Week 9 but also carried a shoulder injury into the game with him. He is expected to have an MRI performed on his shoulder and will be questionable for Week 10. Regardless of the injury, Darnold is in danger of getting benched in favor of P.J. Walker this week.

    Week 10 Bye
    Tarik Cohen, RB (knee - ACL)

    Remains on the PUP list.

    David Montgomery, RB - IR

    Montgomery was placed on injured reserve prior to Week 5. He will be eligible to return Week 8 but his initial timeline of four to five weeks would make a return Week 9 or 10 more likely. With the Bears' bye week in Week 10, I would expect Montgomery back Week 11.

    Damien Williams, RB - Questionable

    Williams left Week 8 with a knee injury and is questionable for Week 9. Fellow running back Khalil Herbert is likely to get significant opportunities if Williams is limited in any way.

    Week 10 Bye
    No new injuries were reported.

    Kareem Hunt, RB - Injured Reserve

    Hunt left Week 6 with a calf injury and was placed on injured reserve. He will be eligible to return this week, but may not be ready to come back yet.

    Nick Chubb and Demetric Felton, RB - Doubtful (COVID-19)

    COVID continues to wreak havoc on the NFL and our fantasy lineups. Both Chubb and Felton tested positive for COVID and are unlikely to clear protocol in time for Week 10. If Hunt is limited or inactive this week, D'Ernest Johnson would inherit a large workload.

    Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR

    With the departure of Odell Beckham from Cleveland, Peoples-Jones stepped into a bigger role in Week 9. He entered the game tagged with a groin injury but should be able to play in Week 10.

    Michael Gallup, WR - Questionable

    Gallup is coming off of injured reserve due to a Week 1 calf injury. He is expected to play Week 10.

    Ezekiel Elliott, RB - Questionable

    Elliott will most likely play but it should be noted that he missed stretches of Week 9 with a knee contusion. Watch his practice involvement as well as his injury designation late in the week.

    Ceedee Lamb, WR - Questionable

    Lamb played through an ankle injury in Week 9. He should be able to continue playing in Week 10 but monitor his status to be safe.

    Noah Fant, TE - Questionable (COVID-19)

    Fant was placed on the COVID list and is missed Week 9. I expect him to be back for Week 10 but watch for his activation to be sure.

    Tyrell Williams, WR - IR

    Currently on injured reserve with a previously reported concussion. Eligible to return at any time but there is no indication of when he might return.

    T.J. Hockenson, TE

    Hockenson has been questionable leading up to the past few games. Hopefully the added rest last week will allow him to fully recover. I would be surprised if he is inactive this week.

    Jamaal Williams, RB - Questionable

    Williams was a game-day inactive in Week 8. The bye week may give him enough time to recover from his thigh injury to return to his normal role in Week 10.

    Aaron Rodgers, QB - Out COVID-19

    Rodgers tested positive for COVID and missed Week 9. There is a high chance that the reigning MVP will miss Week 10 as well since he is unvaccinated. The minimum absence for unvaccinated players is 10 days as opposed to the requirement of two negative tests for vaccinated players.

    Week 10 Bye
    Tyrod Taylor, QB - Questionable

    Taylor returned to the starting lineup in Week 9. He should be good to go from here on out, especially with a bye week to recover further.

    T.Y. Hilton, WR - Questionable

    Hilton missed Week 9 and is currently still in the league's concussion protocol. His status for Week 10 is truly 50/50.

    James Robinson, RB - Questionable

    Robinson left Week 8 with a foot injury that turned out to be a bruised heel and missed Week 9. He is expected to be available for Week 10, but I expect the final decision to be on game-day.

    Trevor Lawrence, QB - Questionable

    Lawrence left Week 9 but was able to return after suffering a low ankle sprain. He is expected to be able to play in Week 10 but may have to be limited in practice this week.

    Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB - IR

    Edwards-Helaire is reportedly closer to returning from a Week 5 injury, but is unlikely to play yet. Watch for the team to open the 21 day window for him to practice in the coming weeks.

    No new injuries were reported. Check back for updates.

    No new injuries were reported. Check back for updates.

    Darrell Henderson, RB - Questionable

    Henderson missed part of Week 9 with an ankle injury but was able to return to the game. He should be fine for Week 10 but monitor him this week, especially late in the week.

    Jacob Harris, TE - IR (season-ending)

    The Rams' rookie tight end suffered season-ending ACL and MCL tears in Week 9. While not a factor for fantasy this year, Harris was thought to be a potential dark horse tight end for dynasty purposes. Hopefully, he is able to recover from the knee injuries and return next year.

    Tua Tagovailoa, QB - Questionable

    We found out late that Tagovailoa would be active for Week 9 but would be the backup to Jacoby Brissett due to a broken finger. He is expected to be a game-time decision for Week 10.

    Malcolm Brown, RB - IR

    Miami placed Brown on injured reserve with a quad injury and he will be out until at least Week 11.

    Will Fuller, WR - IR

    Fuller is on injured reserve with a previously reported fractured finger. He is eligible to return at any time but has already been ruled out for Week 10.

    DeVante Parker, WR - Questionable

    Parker returned from a hamstring injury to play in Week 8 but then reaggravated the injury in practice causing him to miss Week 9. The Dolphins have since placed him on injured reserve, sidelining him until at least Week 15 after the team's bye week.

    <a rel=

    Did not have any new injuries to report. Check back for updates.

    Damien Harris, RB - Questionable

    Harris left Week 9 with a head injury and is questionable for Week 10. As is usual with the Patriots, there isn't a clear indication of his availability.

    Rhamondre Stevenson, RB - Questionable

    Stevenson coincidentally suffered a head injury in Week 9 as well. Like his teammate, Damien Harris, Stevenson's likelihood to play in Week 10 is unknown.

    There were no new injuries reported. Check back for more updates

    Saquon Barkley, RB - Questionable

    Barkley has missed four games with an ankle injury, including last week. He is expected to have a good chance of returning for Week 10 but should be considered questionable until proven otherwise.

    Devontae Booker, RB - Questionable

    Booker, who has been seeing a higher workload while Barkley has been absent, exited Week 9 with a hip injury. He is currently questionable for Week 10.

    Sterling Shepard, WR - Doubtful

    Shepard was active for Week 8's game but left with a quad injury and missed Week 9. His status for Week 10 remains unclear early in the week.

    Zach Wilson, QB - Out

    Wilson left Week 7 after suffering a strained PCL in his knee. The injury is likely to keep him sidelined for 2-4 weeks making his likely return somewhere between Weeks 10 and 12. Head coach Robert Saleh has indicated that they won't put Wilson back out as the starter until they're sure he's healthy.

    Mike White, QB - Questionable

    White left Week 9 with an arm injury but is expected to be able to start in place of the injured Zach Wilson for Week 10.

    Corey Davis, WR - Questionable

    Davis is expected to return from a hip injury for Week 10, but may continue to be questionable until late in the week.

    Miles Sanders, RB - Injured Reserve

    Sanders suffered a low ankle sprain in Week 7 and was subsequently placed on injured reserve. He will be eligible to return in Week 11.

    Chase Claypool, WR

    Claypool suffered an undisclosed injury Monday night and should be considered questionable for Week 10. It's unclear if this is related to the hamstring issue that limited him in practice last week.

    Russell Wilson, QB - IR

    Wilson is on injured reserve with a previously reported finger injury. He is eligible to return this week and there is optimism that he will.

    Chris Carson, RB - IR

    Carson was placed on IR with the neck injury that kept him out of Week 6. He will be eligible to return in Week 10 but we'll have to monitor his involvement in practice (if he practices at all) this week.

    Jeff Wilson, RB

    Wilson returned from IR but did not play a snap in Week 9. It appears that Elijah Mitchell has taken command of the backfield in Wilson's absence but the 49ers are prone to changing the status quo without warning.

    Rob Gronkowski, TE - Questionable

    Gronkowski returned from his rib injury to play in Week 8 but left with back spasms. His is still uncertain for Week 10.

    Antonio Brown, WR - Questionable

    Brown missed Week 7 and 8 with an ankle injury and is still in a walking boot following the Buccaneers' Week 9 bye. I don't expect Brown to play in Week 10 but he should be monitored nonetheless.

    Julio Jones, WR - Questionable

    Jones should probably be considered a weekly game-time decision after missing Week 8 and being on and off the injury report most of this season.

    Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB – IR

    Fitzpatrick is on injured reserve with a previously reported injury.

    Curtis Samuel, WR - Questionable

    Samuel has missed the past few weeks with a long-standing groin injury and remains questionable coming out of the Football Team's Week 9 bye.

    Logan Thomas, TE - IR

    Thomas left during Week 4 with a hamstring injury and WFT placed him on injured reserve prior to Week 5. He is eligible to return and is expected to return to practice following the Week 9 bye, opening a 21-day window to be activated.

    Antonio Gibson, RB - Bye Week

    Gibson continues to play through a shin injury but more concerning is that his role may be changing in the offense.

    I am a veterinarian who has been playing fantasy football off and on since high school. About 12 years ago, I got more competitive and serious about fantasy football when I started a league with some other friends who were in vet school with me at the time. I started playing IDP about 3 years ago and have become even more obsessed with fantasy football. I have what I would call an evidence-based approach to fantasy football and love to track data in spreadsheets. I began writing for IDP Guys in the summer of 2021 and look forward to contributing to the amazing team moving forward. Thanks for reading!
