Week 13 injury report roundup

Week 13 kicked off on Thursday with a win by the Cowboys and it continues with 14 more games on Sunday, which means that the 28 teams in those games submitted their final injury reports of the week on Friday.

Questionable players are uncertain to play, doubtful players are unlikely to play and out should be self-explanatory. Players who are on active rosters and don’t appear below should be considered healthy enough to play barring any announcements on Saturday. The teams playing on Monday night won’t release their injury reports until Saturday and are not listed here.

With that housekeeping out of the way, here are all the injury reports for Sunday.

  1. “Good health is among the things the Eagles have enjoyed this season”

    hahaha… thats a good one.

    IR: Darren Sproles, Chris Maragos (special teams captiain), Jason Peteres, Jordan Hicks, Caleb Sturgis. Missed 1/2 the year: Ronald Darby.

  2. It is well known that injuries play a big role in the NFL. Teams that have Super Bowl years are those that have had very few injuries to their best players. It was one reason the San Francisco 49ers replaced the astroturf at Candlestick Park in the old days (circa 1070s just before the Bill Walsh era). Grass surfaces reduce injuries, especially leg injuries because the foot often gets caught under the body on astroturf instead of sliding on grass. The leg therefore is often caught in a bad position when a player is hit. The knee joint simply cannot withstand the force. It is true that players can run faster on the artificial stuff but is the tradeoff worth it

    Even though grass cost more money to maintain, it is well worth the extra money if minimizing injuries is the goal.

  3. My Christmas wish for the Cardinals is that when they play the Rams Sunday, the Rams don’t do their usual hit job and try to injure somebody and knock them out for the season. Tyrann Mathieu, Carson Palmer (twice), Drew Stanton………it started with Jeff Fish-head and still lives. Rams might as well find a new way to make themselves feel better about not being a contender.
