Week Two injury report roundup


Over the course of the week, there are a lot of posts about the most prominent injured players but we know that you might not see all of them and that some others may fall through the cracks. As a result, we’ll comb through all the injury reports every Friday afternoon so that there’s one stop for all the news from every team playing on Sunday. So, without further delay, the injury report roundup for Week Two of the 2015 season.

Patriots at Bills

Patriots offensive lineman Ryan Wendell (illness) is out and defensive tackle Dominique Easley (hip) is doubtful. Running back LeSean McCoy is questionable after a hamstring setback in practice this week. Cornerback Corey Graham is expected to play after getting through the concussion protocol.

Texans at Panthers

Reports this week said that Texans tackle Duane Brown (hand) is unlikely to play, but the team listed him as questionable. Safety Lonnie Ballentine (knee), running back Arian Foster (groin), linebacker Mike Mohamed (calf) and guard Xavier Su’a-Filo (calf) have all been ruled out. It doesn’t look good for Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly (concussion) after he drew a doubtful tag, but the team is holding out hope that defensive tackle Star Lotulelei (foot) can make his 2015 debut.

Cardinals at Bears

The Cardinals never expected to have running back Andre Ellington (knee) or guard Mike Iupati (knee) this week and ruled both out on Friday. A pair of safeties — Deone Bucannon (groin) and Tony Jefferson (hamstring) — are questionable for Arizona. Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is questionable for the Bears, as are defensive end Ego Ferguson (knee) and linebacker Pernell McPhee (wrist). Linebacker Jon Bostic (ankle) and cornerback Tracy Porter (hamstring) are out for a second straight week.

Chargers at Bengals

Safety Jahleel Addae (ankle), tackle D.J. Fluker (ankle) and wide receiver Jacoby Jones (ankle) are listed as doubtful by the Chargers. Linebacker Kyle Emanuel (shoulder) is questionable. The Bengals listed safety George Iloka (ankle) and cornerback Josh Shaw (groin) as questionable while defensive tackle Marcus Hardison (knee) is out.

Titans at Browns

Tight end Delanie Walker (hand) is questionable for Tennessee and cornerback Jason McCourty (groin) is doubtful after missing last week’s win. Quarterback Josh McCown (concussion), linebacker Scott Solomon (ankle) and running back Robert Turbin (ankle) are all out for Cleveland. Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe (hamstring), linebacker Karlos Dansby (foot) and cornerback Justin Gilbert (hip) are all questionable.

Lions at Vikings

The Lions ruled out tight end Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring) and linebacker DeAndre Levy (hip) is likely out after drawing a doubtful tag. Defensive tackles Haloti Ngata (shoulder) and Caraun Reid (ankle) are questionable while cornerback Darius Slay (ankle) is probable after a week of limited practices. Both players on the Vikings injury report — running back Jerick McKinnon (ankle) and defensive tackle Shamar Stephen (knee) — are probable.

Buccaneers at Saints

Tampa should have a good shot at getting wide receiver Mike Evans (hamstring) back after a full week of practice. He’s officially questionable along with linebacker Bruce Carter (ribs), cornerback Mike Jenkins (hamstring) and linebacker Danny Lansanah (ankle). The Saints aren’t offering hints about running back C.J. Spiller (knee) after listing him as questionable. Safety Jairus Byrd (knee), linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (toe) and cornerback Keenan Lewis (hip) remain out.

Falcons at Giants

Wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring) is probable, but the Falcons have ruled out defensive end Malliciah Goodman (elbow), wide receiver Devin Hester (toe) and linebacker Brooks Reed (groin). Giants linebacker Jon Beason (knee) is doubtful after missing last week’s game. Wide receiver Victor Cruz (calf), tight end Daniel Fells (foot), defensive tackle Markus Kuhn (knee) and defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa (foot) are all out for the home team.

49ers at Steelers

A brief 49ers injury report rules out running back Reggie Bush (calf) and lists wide receiver Bruce Ellington (ankle) as questionable. Cornerback Cortez Allen (knee) is questionable for the Steelers, who are otherwise free of major injury concerns this week.

Rams at Redskins

It could be the week for Rams rookie running back Todd Gurley (knee) to make his debut after he was listed as questionable. Running back Tre Mason (hamstring) is also questionable, but defensive end Eugene Sims (knee) has been ruled out. Washington won’t have wide receiver DeSean Jackson (hamstring), cornerback Justin Rogers (foot) or linebacker Martrell Spaight (concussion). Tight end Jordan Reed (quad) is questionable, but said he expects to play. Defensive tackle Terrance Knighton (ribs) is also questionable.

Dolphins at Jaguars

Safety Reshad Jones (hamstring), defensive end Derrick Shelby (eye) and defensive end Cameron Wake (hamstring) are all questionable for Miami and all of them practiced on Friday. Tight end Dion Sims (concussion) is out, however. There won’t be much intrigue to the list of Jaguars inactives. Defensive end Andre Branch (knee), cornerback Dwayne Gratz (ankle), defensive tackle Sen’Derrick Marks (knee) and tight end Julius Thomas (hand) were ruled out and safety Johnathan Cyprien (finger, calf) and running back Toby Gerhart (abdomen) are doubtful. Tackle Luke Joeckel (ankle) is questionable after missing practice all week.

Ravens at Raiders

Tackle Eugene Monroe (concussion) and wide receiver Breshad Perriman (knee) remain out for the Ravens. Cornerback Rashaan Melvin (thigh) and wide receiver Darren Waller (ankle) will be game-time decisions. The Raiders will have quarterback Derek Carr (thumb), but safety Charles Woodson (shoulder) is questionable. Defensive tackle Justin Ellis (ankle), defensive end Benson Mayowa (knee) and running back Jamize Olawale (ankle) have been ruled out.

Cowboys at Eagles

We’ve known for several days that the Cowboys will play without wide receiver Dez Bryant (foot) and defensive end Randy Gregory (ankle) and it looks like guard Ron Leary (groin, doubtful) will join them on the sideline. The Eagles had just two players on their injury report. Wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu (concussion, elbow) is out and linebacker Marcus Smith (hamstring) is probable.

Seahawks at Packers

The Seahawks will wait to make final calls on tackle Garry Gilliam (rib), linebacker Bruce Irvin (rib), cornerback Tharold Simon (toe) and running back Will Tukuafu (foot) after listing them as questionable. Linebacker Michael Morgan (hamstring) definitely won’t play. The Packers ruled out tackle Bryan Bulaga (knee) after a practice injury this week. Safety Morgan Burnett (calf) has a shot at playing after being listed as questionable.
