Every week we will break down the notable players that are on the injury report for the current week and who could replace them.
Below we will go over the injury report for Week 14. Let’s see who makes the list this week!
Colts @ Buccaneers
For the Colts this week, a lot of the IDP veterans such as Justin Houston, Clayton Geathers, and Darius Leonard were given time off not due to injury but are good to go for Sunday. Safety Malik Hooker (foot) is questionable, however, for Sunday. If he cannot suit up George Odum would take his place. In Tampa Bay, all IDP startable assets are good to go this week.
Ravens @ Bills
For the Ravens, cornerback Marlon Humphrey (thigh) is questionable for Sunday’s matchup. If he can’t go Marcus Peters would assume a full-time role at left cornerback. Inside linebacker Patrick Onwuasor (ankle) is also questionable for Sunday in Buffalo. His backup would be L.J. Fort. For the Bills, all IDP stars are good to go this week against the Ravens.
Lions @ Vikings
Defensive Tackle Damion Harrison got in a limited practice on Friday and has been given rest days throughout the week but is good to go for Sunday. Backup cornerbacks Rashaan Melvin (ribs) and Jamal Agnew (ankle) are questionable for Sunday. Chances are you won’t be starting them in your IDP matchups this week. However, IF you were planning on it and they can’t go Mike Ford and Dee Virgin would be their respective backups. In Minnesota, defensive lineman Everson Griffin and Linval Joseph were battling knee injuries throughout the week but are both set to play on Sunday. Safety Harrison Smith (hamstring) was also limited this week but was left off of the final injury report.
Redskins @ Packers
Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan (concussion) and defensive back Montez Nicholson (ankle) both got in full practices this week and are good to go. The only IDP asset for the Redskins to be declared out for Sunday’s matchup is DeShazor Everett with a shoulder injury. For the Packers, linebacker Blake Martinez (hand) and defensive back Will Redmond (foot) practiced in full this week and are set to go on Sunday.
Broncos @ Texans
For the Broncos, linebackers Von Miller (knee) and Malik Reed (ankle/shoulder) are questionable for Sunday. If they can’t suit up Justin Hollins and Jeremiah Attaochu would start in their respective places. In Houston, both cornerbacks Bradley Roby (hamstring/toe) and Gareon Conley (hip) are questionable for Sunday’s matchup. If they can’t suit up look for Vernon Hargraves to step into the starting left cornerback role.
49ers @ Saints
For the 49ers Jaquiski Tartt (ribs) is out for this Sunday’s matchup in New Orleans. Marcell Harris will take his place. For New Orleans, SAM linebacker A.J. Klein is out with a knee injury. Stephone Anthony will start in his place. Outside linebacker Kiko Alonso (thigh) is also out for this game making either Craig Robinson or Trey Hendrickson the next man up for the Saints at OLB.
Bengals @ Browns
For the Brownies, edge rusher Olivier Vernon is questionable with a knee injury this week. If he can’t go Bryan Cox would fill in for him. In Cincy, defensive end Sam Hubbard (knee) is out this week, so starting in his place will be Carl Lawson.
Panthers @ Falcons
For Carolina, edge rusher Mario Addison is questionable with a groin injury which, if he’s out this week, would put Brian Burns in the starting role. Safety Eric Reid was on the injury report with an ankle injury for most of the week but was left off of the team’s final injury report on Friday making him available in week 14. For Atlanta, all IDP options are on the table for you this week.
Dolphins @ Jets
All IDP starters for the “fins” are good to go this week. For the Jets, with linebacker C.J. Mosley FINALLY being placed on IR James Burgess will cement his spot as the starting ILB for the Jets. Safety Jamal Adams is doubtful for Sunday’s matchup with an ankle injury which means Blake Countess would get the start in his place.
Chargers @ Jaguars
For the Chargers, linebacker Thomas Davis, Jr. was missed practice this week, not due to injury, got in a full practice on Friday and is good to go on Sunday. For the Jaguars, safety Ronnie Harrison is questionable after suffering from a concussion a few weeks ago. If he can’t start Marcus Gilchrist would start in his place.

For the Chiefs, defensive end Frank Clark (shoulder) is ruled out for Sunday making Tanoh Kpassagnon the next man up there. All other IDP starters for the Chiefs are good to go. For New England, Patrick Chung is still battling from a heel injury. If he can’t play Duron Harmon would take his place. Cornerback Jason McCourty is also listed as questionable with a groin injury.
