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 8. Some big names on the list, let us see who will replace them.
Seahawks @ Falcons
Newly acquired safety Quandre Diggs (hamstring) is questionable for his first game with the Seahawks, not that anyone expected him to start so soon after being traded from Detroit. Free safety Bradley McDougald (back) is questionable this week. His replacement would be Lano Hill. Defensive lineman Ziggy Ansah is questionable with an ankle injury. His backup is Rasheem Green.
Broncos @ Colts
No IDP relevant defensive players were listed on the injury report for the Broncos.
For the Colts, safety Malik Hooker (knee ) and defensive end Jabaal Sheard (foot) was limited to start the week, but aren’t listed on the final injury report as of Friday, therefore, both should be good to go on Sunday.
Buccaneers @ Titans
Cardinals @ Saints
For Arizona, linebackers Jordan Hicks (calf) and Haason Reddick (knee) are both questionable to play on Sunday versus New Orleans. If they cannot go Joe Walker and Dennis Gardeck would fill in for them respectively.
All IDP relevant players on the Saints are good to go.
Bengals @ Rams
In Cincy, starting cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick has been ruled out with a knee injury. Tony McRae will fill in for Kirkpatrick this week. All other IDP starters for the Bengals are active. For L.A., Clay Matthews is still sidelined with a broken jaw leaving Natrez Patrick to fill in for him.
Eagles @ Bills
For Philly, linebacker Nigel Bradham (ankle/illness) has been ruled out. T.J. Edwards should get the start in his place. For Buffalo, linebacker Matt Milano is questionable with a hamstring injury. Maurice Alexander is his backup.
Chargers @ Bears
All IDP relevant starters for the Charger and the Bears are active.
Giants @ Lions
Jets @ Jaguars
For the Jets, linebackers C.J. Mosley (groin) and Albert McClennan (concussion) have been ruled out this week. Fellow linebacker Neville Hewitt (neck/knee) is listed as doubtful. The only linebacker that seems healthy enough to start as an IDP-LB is Blake Cashman.
All IDP stars for the Jaguars will start on Sunday.
Panther @ 49ers
All relevant IDP stars for both teams are all active this week!
Raiders @ Texans
Browns @ Patriots
Defensive backs Greedy Williams, Denzel Ward, and Damarious Randall (hamstrings) are all declared active for their week 8 showdown with the Patriots. Defensive end Myles Garrett (knee) was limited on Thursday, but he is good to go this week!
Packers @ Chiefs
Rookie strong safety for the Green Bay Packers, Darnell Savage, is still suffering the effects of an ankle injury he suffered a few weeks ago and was limited in practice this week. He’s officially listed as questionable. If he doesn’t suit up Will Redmond would normally fill in for Savage, BUT it just so happens that Redmond started the week participating fully in practice but an ankle injury has caused him to participate in a limited fashion to end the week. While he’s officially not listed on the injury report anymore this is a situation that’s worth monitoring.
For Kansas City, defensive end Frank Clark (neck) and defensive tackle Chris Jones (groin) have been declared out for Sunday’s matchup. You might see some rotation of Emmanuel Ogbah and Tanoh Kpassgnon at defensive end for Clark and Khalen Saunders would fill-in at defensive tackle for Jones.
Dolphins @ Steelers
For the Dolphins, Rashaad Jones (chest) still has not practiced this week and there is a good chance he doesn’t play on Monday night. If he doesn’t suit up Steven Parker would be assuming his safety duties. For the “black and yellow” T.J. Watt has been suffering from an abdominal injury but was full practice on Friday and will more than likely suit up on Monday.
