Week Two injury report roundup

Getty Images

Week Two of the 2018 NFL season kicked off on Thursday with a win by the Bengals 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.

    Viking fans know Rodgers will play and are beside themselves


    Last 5 games against the packers the Vikings are 4-1. Viking fans hope Rodgers plays. We can watch the Viking defense knock him out for the season again. SKOL!

  2. What’s causing all these injuries? Could it be all the no tackling practices all summer? Throw out the CBA!

    Vikings fans want Rodgers to play and we want him healthy so Packers fans will shut up already.


    Yep. You just want to yammer on about this incredible Viking dynasty to be in peace. It’s understandable.

  4. Big “Browns didn’t win” Ben will play. He always does his little drama queen act like Brady does.

  5. It’s crazy how Vikings fans constantly keep talking about taking Rodgers out again. Are y’all really proud of that? Stay classy folks. What goes around comes around.

    So far I am 1-0 on my locks of the week. Last week I commented Bengals over Ravens, Steelers over Chiefs, and Vikings over Packers.

    And yet you’re still 1-0?

    Last 57 years we have watched the Vikings go down in flames

  9. “No Fournette? Pats get lucky once again”

    And Pats are down Hill, Burkhead and Michel out of their RBs.

    Nice try cherry picking and acting like the Pats have no RB injuries.

    Just like Brady does? Huh? Oh, you must mean Kyle Brady. Gotcha. I thought he was retired?

  11. Nobody in Minnesota wants to have their team knock a quarterback out for the game, a season, or a career. That is not who we are. Lets face it…Quarterbacks who operate outside the pocket, and venture down the field through gaps, have a tendency to get hit occasionally, as when they leave the pocket, and get outside the “tackle box”, they are really becoming much like the running back, or any other player who is trying to advance the ball with their feet. If Tom Brady had spent more time outside the pocket over the past ten years, he probably would not still be playing, but he knows better. I am sure the coaches at GB discourage this kind of behavior out of their quarterback, but that is the way Rodgers chooses to play, and bad things can happen when the quarterback makes a habit of showing that he is possibly going to push the ball down field under his own power. It is the same with Cam Newton, and although he is huge, he won’t last for much of a long career, if he continues to challenge defenses with his own legs.
