    NFL Week 11 Injury Report for Offensive Players

    Chase Edmonds, RB - Injured Reserve

    Edmonds suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 9 and was placed on injured reserve prior to Week 10. He will be eligible to return in Week 13.

    DeAndre Hopkins, WR - Questionable Out

    Hopkins was inactive in Weeks 9 and 10 due to a hamstring injury. Monitor his status throughout the week to see if he will be able to avoid missing a third straight game.

    Kyler Murray, QB - Questionable

    Murry sprained his ankle in Week 8 and missed the last two weeks as a result. He will remain questionable for Week 11 but seems close to returning.

    Colt McCoy, QB - Questionable

    The Cardinals' backup quarterback exited Week 10 with a chest injury and may not be healthy enough to start if Murray is not available.

    Team Update:

    DeAndre Hopkins has been ruled out of Week 11 while Kyler Murray and Colt McCoy are both listed as questionable. Murray was able to practice in a limited fashion on Friday and will come down to a game-time decision.

    Cordarrelle Patterson, RB - Doubtful

    Patterson suffered an ankle sprain and it looks as though he will miss Week 11. The Falcons play on Thursday night, so we will at least know his status early to be able to make backup plans.

    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 returned to the field in Week 10 but only saw three targets. If he is not active in Week 11 it may give a boost to the other receiving options on the Ravens.

    Latavius Murray, RB - Questionable

    Murray missed Weeks 7 through 10 with an ankle injury and remains questionable in Week 11.

    Marquise Brown, WR - Out

    Brown was downgraded to Out for Week 11's game against the Bears due to a thigh injury.

    Team Update:

    With Brown out, the Ravens will have to rely on Rashod Bateman and Sammy Watkins, both of whom were removed from the injury report this week. Unfortunately, quarterback Lamar Jackson left practice with an injury and is considered a game-time decision for Sunday, while Latavius Murray is questionable but appears likely to return this week.

    Cole Beasley, WR - Questionable

    Beasley has played through a rib injury the past few weeks and has been limited on gamedays as a result.

    Sam Darnold, QB - Questionable

    Darnold was diagnosed with a fractured scapula and was placed on injured reserve. He is expected to miss 4-6 weeks but it's possible that his recent poor performances may lead the Panthers to shut him down for the season, especially if newly acquired Cam Newton proves effective.

    Tarik Cohen, RB (knee - ACL)

    Remains on the PUP list.

    David Montgomery, RB

    Montgomery returned from injury in Week 9 and went right back to being the number one running back on the team.

    Damien Williams, RB - Questionable

    Williams left Week 8 with a knee injury and missed Week 9. Coming off the teams' bye Williams may be able to return potentially limiting the already reduced role of rookie Khalil Herbert.

    Allen Robinson, WR - Doubtful

    Robinson missed practice this week including the final practice of the week. Most managers were probably trying to pivot away from the wide receiver due to poor performance this year already, but this is one more reason if you still needed it.

    No new injuries were reported.

    Baker Mayfield, QB - Questionable

    The Browns' quarterback has been plagued by injuries this year. In addition to his previous shoulder injury, Mayfield is now day-to-day with a knee injury.

    Kareem Hunt, RB - Injured Reserve

    Hunt left Week 6 with a calf injury and was placed on injured reserve. He is eligible to return but has not yet been activated.

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

    Chubb and Felton each missed Week 10 after testing positive for COVID. Most vaccinated players have been able to make it back after missing only one week so the Browns may get their number one running back this week.

    Ceedee Lamb, WR - Questionable

    Lamb missed part of Week 10 with an arm contusion but is expected to play in Week 11.

    Week 11 Bye
    No new injuries were reported in Week 10.

    Jermar Jefferson, RB - Doubtful

    Jefferson filled in as the second back in the Lions' committee during Week 10 while Jamaal Williams was sidelined but could miss time with an ankle injury that ended his day early. The next man up alongside D'Andre Swift in Week 10 was household name Godwin Igwebuike.

    Jamaal Williams, RB - Questionable

    Williams missed Weeks 8 and 10 with a thigh injury and remains questionable for Week 11. Rookie Jermar Jefferson saw added work in Week 10 before being injured himself.

    Aaron Jones, RB - Out

    Jones suffered an MCL sprain and is expected to miss 1-2 weeks. AJ Dillon will get a large bump in opportunities in all likelihood, but the Packers' recent tendency to use multiple backs means that another option will probably be added. Free-agent Kerryon Johnson has reportedly worked out for the team.

    No new injuries were reported.

    No new injuries were reported.

    James Robinson, RB - Questionable

    Robinson played through a bruised heel in Week 10 and should be good to go for Week 11. Keep an eye on his status throughout the week as he may be limited, especially early in the week.

    Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB - IR

    Edwards-Helaire has a chance to return in Week 11, although he may not have as large of a share of the backfield once he returns.

    No new injuries were reported. Check back for updates.

    No new injuries were reported. Check back for updates.

    Week 11 Bye
    Robert Woods, WR - IR (season-ending)

    Woods suffered a torn ACL during practice last week and will be out for the rest of the 2021 season.

    Tua Tagovailoa, QB

    The Dolphins handling of Tagovailoa and the quarterback position continues to be puzzling. Tagovailoa was apparently not healthy enough to start in Week 10 but was healthy enough to backup Jacoby Brissett who eventually got injured. Then when Brissett was cleared to return, the Dolphins reversed course and chose to continue with Tagovailoa in the game. The second-year quarterback has been named the starter for Week 11 for what it's worth.

    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 a timeline has not been provided at this time.

    DeVante Parker, WR - IR

    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 and missed Week 10 while in the league's concussion protocol. He remains in the protocol but was able to return to practice on a limited basis providing some optimism that he could return in Week 11.

    Alvin Kamara, RB - Questionable

    Kamara was inactive in Week 10 due to a knee injury and remains questionable for Week 11. Keep an eye out for Kamara's practice involvement as the week goes on. Veteran Mark Ingram recorded 14 rushes and 7 targets in Week 10 with Kamara out and would be in line for more of the same if Kamara remains sidelined.

    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 11 but his practice participation should be monitored this week just in case.

    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 11.

    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 11 remains unclear.

    Zach Wilson, QB - Questionable

    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 so his status for Week 11 remains unclear for now.

    Dallas Goedert, TE - Questionable

    Goedert left Week 10 with a concussion and is questionable for Week 11. Be prepared to be without the Eagles' tight end in Week 11.

    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. Monitor his status to see if he returns to practice this week.

    Ben Roethlisberger, QB - Questionable (COVID-19)

    Roethlisberger was ruled out of Week 10 late due to COVID and remains questionable for Week 11. His status obviously has a large impact on the rest of the team's fantasy options.

    Chase Claypool, WR - Questionable

    Claypool suffered a toe injury that kept him out in Week 10 and is questionable for Week 11.

    Chris Carson, RB - IR

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

    DK Metcalf, WR

    Metcalf was ejected in Week 10 but will not be suspended for the altercation he was involved in. He should be unlimited in Week 11.

    Elijah Mitchell, RB - Questionable

    Mitchell suffered a broken finger in Week 10, but the team seems to think he has a chance to play in Week 11 depending on his ability to practice this week.

    Team Update:

    Mitchell is officially doubtful with both rib and finger injuries, while Jamycal Hasty has been ruled out. This clears out some opportunity for another running back to step up although the 49ers tend to be a little unpredictable.

    In some good news, wide receiver Deebo Samuel was a full participant in practice Friday and was removed from the injury report after having some limitations this week.

    Rob Gronkowski, TE - Questionable

    Gronkowski missed Week 10 with a back injury and remains questionable for Week 11.

    Antonio Brown, WR - Questionable

    Brown has been absent for several weeks and continues to be questionable for Week 11.

    Julio Jones, WR - IR

    Jones was placed on injured reserve and will not be eligible to return until Week 14.

    Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB – IR

    Fitzpatrick is on injured reserve with a previously reported injury. The Football Team now expects him to miss the remainder of the season.

    Terry McLaurin, WR

    McLaurin missed a few drives in Week 10 after suffering a collarbone injury. He was able to finish the game but the injury may keep him limited in practice this week.

    Curtis Samuel, WR - Questionable

    Samuel has missed the past few weeks with a long-standing groin injury and remains questionable for Week 11.

    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 but is not ready according to the team.

    Ricky Seals-Jones, TE - Questionable

    Seals-Jones has been filling in for Logan Thomas but left Week 10 with a hip injury and is considered day-to-day. The team signed a tight end on Tuesday indicating that both Thomas and Seals-Jones could miss Week 11.

    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!
