Week Three of the 2021 NFL season kicked off on Thursday with a win by Carolina 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.

The teams playing on Monday night won’t release their final 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. Oh yea mike624
    That ONE MORE game will equal Armageddon.
    And YOU don’t watch or follow football, and you’ll REFUSE to watch that 17th game out of your concern for players, right?

    Spare me the self-righteous attitude. It’s getting old.

  2. Should the raiders win, it will be the first time in the history of the NFL, that a team beat three teams to start the season that had 10 wins each the season before.

    Let’s GO!!!!! 3-0!

  3. If I didn’t know any better it sound like you want lamar to be injured from his td celebration.

  4. Surely one of Texans, Colts or dolphins must call Cam. He deserves another shot.

    Cam would improvement over their backups. Pats offence was so bad last season, any QB would have looked bad.

  5. I’m sure it’s happened, but I don’t recall so many QB injuries this early in the season before. A reliable #2 QB seems more important than ever.

    What happens to the NFCW if any of the #1s get hurt? Yikes!

  6. LaFleur is going to give Elgton until Sunday night to see if he can go. Elgton is ready to play. It’s up to the docs now. LaFleur says: “If he checks out, we will let him play.”

    The Packers have the best depth in the NFL. If Elgton isn’t cleared by docs then Dennis Kelly is probable to start at LT. Kelly started for the Titans last season. Dennis is a beast at 6’8″ 325. Yosh Nijman is another incredible talent at T that has been chomping at the bit for 2 yrs to get in the starting 5.

    The Pack could also move Billy Turner to LT. That would put Kelly at RT where he was the starter for the Titans.

    It is so nice to have incredible depth. A lot of teams just don’t have that depth. It has to just destroy some fan bases that the Packers never miss a beat.
