NFL Week 11 Injury Report – Early Games:
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Miami Dolphins
- Jameis Winston (O) will miss his second week in a row as he rehabs his shoulder injury in his right arm. The Bucs have been vocal stating that they won’t play Winston again until he’s back to full strength. It’s possible Winston misses Week 12 as well. Until he returns, Ryan Fitzpatrick will be under center for Tampa.
- Kenny Stills (Q) popped up on the injury report after injuring his back in Thursday’s practice. He didn’t practice on Friday, so his status is up in the air. He is looking like a game-time decision on Sunday.
Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears
Lions – No fantasy relevant players listed on the Week 11 Injury Report
Bears – No fantasy relevant players listed on the Week 11 Injury Report
Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Cleveland Browns
- Leonard Fournette (Q) continues to be hampered by an ankle injury this season. He didn’t practice on Friday so there’s a real chance he sits on Sunday. Owners need to make backup plans or grab Chris Ivory off the waiver wire.
- Allen Hurns (O) never really had a chance to suit up in Week 11 after an ankle injury in Week 10 put him on crutches. Hurns didn’t practice all week, so he is likely dealing with a multiple week injury. Expect to find his name on this list next week.
- Marqise Lee remains limited this year in practice due to a lingering knee injury. He was removed from the team’s final injury report, so he should be fine for Sunday. Lee has shown an ability to play through his ailments all year and play at a high level, so until further news comes out about a more serious injury, I have no concerns about Lee moving forward.
- Isaiah Crowell was limited early in the week with a shoulder injury but was upgraded to a full participant in practice on Friday. He’s in no danger of missing Week 11.
Baltimore Ravens vs. Green Bay Packers
- Danny Woodhead (Q) has a chance to make his return after a hamstring injury put him on IR for the past 10 weeks. He dealt with a hamstring injury in training camp, and he just never got right entering the season, going down in Week 1. Athletes coming off an ACL surgery tend to be more susceptible to soft tissue injuries. This, combined with the fact that Woodhead is coming off a serious hamstring injury, gives me hesitation with Woodhead for the rest of the year. Personally, I’m avoiding Woodhead for at least one week, as I prefer to see it before I believe it, and because I think the Ravens will ease the veteran back into the game plan with Buck Allen proving to be a viable pass-catching back.
- Ty Montgomery (O) won’t suit up in Week 11 after aggravating a rib injury from earlier this season. Montgomery originally broke multiple ribs in Week 4, and only sat out one game in Week 5 because of this injury. However, he’s been on the injury report all year as he continues to be limited by pain and soreness. Given that Ty-Mo only missed one game after he broke his ribs, I expect him to be back next week. With the rookie, Aaron Jones out 3-6 weeks with an MCL sprain, Jamaal Williams should have the backfield to himself.
Arizona Cardinals vs. Houston Texans
- Drew Stanton (Q) will not start against the Texans but appears as though he could be in a backup role on Sunday after getting in a limited session on Friday with a sprained knee. Blaine Gabbert will start in his place.
- Will Fuller (O) will not play in Week 11 after breaking multiple ribs last week. As we’ve seen with other players throughout the season, broken ribs can be difficult to play through due to pain. He should truly be considered week to week. Bruce Ellington is a sneaky start this week as Deandre Hopkins is likely to draw shutdown corner, Patrick Peterson in this matchup.
Los Angeles Rams vs. Minnesota Vikings
Rams – No fantasy relevant players listed on the Week 11 Injury Report
Vikings – No fantasy relevant players listed on the Week 11 Injury Report
Washington Redskins vs. New Orleans Saints
- Jordan Reed (O) will miss his second straight game with a hamstring injury after reportedly experiencing a setback this week in practice. No surprise, as hamstring injuries are most likely to recur within two weeks of the injury. This setback could keep Reed out beyond Week 11. Vernon Davis remains a TE1 while Reed is out.
Saints – No fantasy relevant players listed on the Week 11 Injury Report
Kansas City Chiefs vs. New York Giants

NFL Week 11 Injury Report – Late Games:
Buffalo Bills vs. Los Angeles Chargers
- Charles Clay (Q) should play an increased role in Week 11 after returning last week from a torn meniscus and MCL sprain. There were no reports of a setback from his return last week, so he should be fine for Sunday against the Chargers.
- Philip Rivers (Q) is questionable this week with a concussion. Rivers didn’t appear to take any obvious shots to the head on last Sunday, but he reported concussion-related symptoms on Monday. Players with a concussion don’t always have symptoms when the injury initially happens, and the onset of symptoms can be delayed, as seen with Rivers. He practiced this week, so he should clear the concussion protocol and be good to go on Sunday.
Cincinnati Bengals vs. Denver Broncos
- Brandon LaFell (Q) is dealing with a minor knee injury and is expected to play Sunday against Denver. He practiced on Friday as a full participant, so he should be fine for Week 11.
Broncos – No fantasy relevant players listed on the Week 11 Injury Report
New England Patriots vs. Oakland Raiders
- Chris Hogan (O) continues to miss time with a shoulder injury from Week 8. He has yet to practice since his injury, so he’s likely not close to returning. His status should be updated next week.
- Danny Amendola (Q) was limited in practice week again but is not in danger of missing Week 11. He hyperextended his knee a few weeks ago, and the Pats have been limiting his reps in practice ever since. However, he has been playing through his injury without any reported setbacks, so he should be fine for Week 11.
Raiders – No fantasy relevant players listed on the Week 11 Injury Report
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys
- Alshon Jeffery (Q) has managed to stay healthy this year unlike previous seasons, but he finds himself on the Week 11 injury report with an ankle injury. He was added to the report in the middle of the week, which always makes me nervous, but all signs point to Alshon suiting up on Sunday night after he practiced in full on Friday.
Cowboys – No fantasy relevant players listed on the Week 11 Injury Report
Atlanta Falcons vs. Seattle Seahawks
- Devonta Freeman is not expected to play on Monday night after suffering a concussion in Week 10. Head coach, Dan Quinn, was vocal early in the week stating that Freeman was a long shot to suit up on Monday. Freeman didn’t practice on Thursday or Friday, so he will likely miss MNF. Tevin Coleman will start in his place.
- Jimmy Graham was limited on Thursday with a knee injury. There hasn’t been any reported knee injury, and last time we saw Graham in game action he went off for 2 TDs on TNF against the Cardinals, so he should be fine for MNF. Owners will want to watch the practice reports on Saturday to ensure Graham will play.
