Carson left Sunday’s game against the Chargers with a hip injury. He was originally listed as doubtful to return, and he did not re-enter the game.

WR_Tyreek_Hill_KCC_2

Kansas City has not yet given any other updates regarding Tyreek Hill’s injury, so we don’t know the seriousness of it at this point. If Hill is forced to miss Week 9 against Cleveland, then Sammy Watkins would become the team’s No. 1 receiver, with Chris Conley being the likely starter opposite him.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 7 Injury Fallout

RB Sony Michel NEP

The Patriots have not released any information about Michel’s injury, but his inability to put weight on his leg is certainly concerning. He also appeared to be in a lot of pain following the injury, so don’t be surprised if he is forced to miss significant time. That would be a big blow to the Patriots, who have already placed Rex Burkhead and Jeremy Hill on IR.

Josh Bynes ARI and Cooper Kupp LAR

Kupp left Sunday’s game against the Broncos with a left knee injury in the second quarter. He suffered the injury when safety Darian Stewart dragged him down with a horse-collar tackle, causing his knee to bend awkwardly. After being carted to the locker room, Kupp briefly returned for the second half, but he was quickly removed from the game.

RB ROUNDUP: Analyzing the Committees

RB Alex Collins BAL

Although they experienced a small resurgence last year, workhorse running backs are still a rarity in today’s game. Instead, most teams employ a committee approach, splitting the workload to keep their players fresh. While that strategy can be useful on ...

RB_Derrick_Henry_TEN_1

It seems that this injury will bring an end to Murray’s frustrating and inefficient regular season, but the good news for Tennessee is that it has a capable backup in second-year running back Derrick Henry. The 2015 Heisman Trophy winner has averaged a solid 4.7 yards per carry this season, compared to just 3.6 yards per carry for Murray.

WR_Antonio_Brown_PIT_2

Brown’s injury came at an unfortunate time for fantasy owners, as they’ll now be without the league’s best wideout for the remainder of the fantasy playoffs. In Brown’s absence, second-round rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster and fourth-year receiver Martavis Bryant figure to be Ben Roethlisberger’s primary receiving weapons.

TE_Zach_Ertz_PHI_1

As of this writing, the Eagles have not yet stated that Ertz suffered a concussion, but given the severity of the hit, it seems likely that he is in the concussion protocol. If that’s the case, his future availability will obviously depend on how quickly he can clear the protocol.

WR Dez Bryant DAL

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett has described Bryant’s injury as a sprain, but he said the team is still waiting to learn more about the severity. Meanwhile, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News tweeted that Bryant doesn’t seem overly concerned about his ankle..

QB_Aaron_Rodgers_Brett_Hundley_GBP_1

It goes without saying that losing Aaron Rodgers is a huge loss for the Packers, although backup quarterback Brett Hundley will attempt to keep the team afloat while Rodgers recovers. From a fantasy perspective, Rodgers can be dropped in all formats that don’t include an IR spot.

RB_Darren_Sproles_PHI_1

Sproles left Sunday’s game against the Giants with a wrist injury early in the second quarter, and he remained sidelined for the rest of the game. Multiple sources are now reporting that Sproles is believed to have suffered a broken arm and will be out indefinitely.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 1 Injury Fallout

RB_David_Johnson_ARI_1

It was a tough day for Johnson, who overcame one injury scare, only to give us another. On a 24-yard reception, Johnson got hit hard and was seen holding his midsection in pain. He appeared okay on the sideline afterward and re-entered the game on the next drive, but he injured his wrist and fumbled on his next carry.

PRESEASON RECAP: Week 1 Standouts, Slip-Ups, and Sleepers

RB_Darren_McFadden_DAL_1

McFadden’s day could have been better too. He had two nice runs called back by holding calls on backup lineman Byron Bell, and backup quarterback Kellen Moore completely missed him on two check-down passes (those shouldn’t be issues when the starters are playing). If Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game suspension holds, McFadden looks like a strong fantasy fill-in.
