Week Six injury report roundup

Getty Images

Week Six of the 2018 NFL season kicked off on Thursday with a win by the Eagles and it continues with 13 more games on Sunday, which means that the 26 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.

Bears at Dolphins

The Bears won’t have CB Marcus Cooper (hamstring), but everyone else is set to play after a bye week.

Derby (foot), WR Jakeem Grant (shoulder), DE Charles Harris (calf), CB Bobby McCain (knee), S T.J.

S Eric Murray (ankle) was ruled out by the Chiefs along with WR De'Anthony Thomas, who fractured his leg in Thursday’s practice.

    Jeepers if it ain’t the refs it’s the injury report. Packer fans are always looking for an excuse.



  3. the browns should beat san diego. good grief, the heart of their defense is out, their one deep threat is out, and 2 lbs are also out. browns should slaughter them fake bolts.


  4. Once again BB outsmarts everyone by listing half the team as questionable to confuse the other coaches. Best coach ever, he can make any QB look like a superstar.

  5. So the Bears are the healthiest team in the NFL? What about Shaheen? He is still out. This seems wrong and incomplete. I give credit though to whoever is heading their strength and condition team, a stark contrast from the last couple years. I believe they had 18 players on IR last year in retrospect.

  6. The pack waits till the end. Way too many guys trip over chalk lines at the last minute and are out for weeks. Beluga, springs, Cobb, perry.

  7. Your right “Unbiasednfltruth”. The Bears are healthy for a change and that is a Big change. You are correct that the Bears have had 18 guys on IR not only last year, but the last 2 years. Shaheen is on IR and should be eligible to come back after week 7. I think. But no kidding, what a different training and strength conditioning staff can mean is amazing. Nock on Wood . Go Bears.

    It’s sometimes hard to decipher who is pretending to be dumb on this site, and who is actually certifiably less than smart.

    The Packers wait until the end because like San Fran they play on Monday night. 2 of the 4 packers names are incorrect.
