NFL Week 12 injuries: Alvin Kamara out for Saints on Thanksgiving; Jared Goff questionable for Lions

Published

on


Week 12 of the NFL is set to be an exciting one with nine games featuring two teams with .500-or-better records, the most such games in Week 12 or later in league history. The appetizer for Sunday’s main course will be this year’s Thanksgiving games, as the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys continue their longstanding tradition of hosting a game on the holiday. 

As the league has three games on Thursday and a near-full slate of games over the weekend, the injury reports are starting to pile up as most of the teams had their bye week with a few other teams yet to have their week off. 

Here’s the first injury report from what is to be an exciting Week 12 in the NFL. All odds come courtesy of Caesars Sportsbook.

Thanksgiving games

Fields has officially been ruled out, so Andy Dalton will start at quarterback for the Bears. Head coach Matt Nagy said Fields will start again when he is healthy. Robinson hasn’t practiced all week, and the short week gives him the “doubtful” designation. Darnell Mooney was limited all week, but was not given an injury designation. 

For the Lions, Goff called himself a “game-time decision” earlier this week, so his status won’t be determined until the inactive report is released. Dan Campbell said Goff is on track to return, but Tim Boyle will get the start if Goff can’t go. Goff has been limited in practice all week. Flowers will miss his second consecutive game. 

Kwiatkoski will miss his third straight game for the Raiders, who have a light injury report heading into Thanksgiving. Jalen Richard (ribs) was a full participant, so he’ll be good to go for Thursday’s showdown. Guard John Simpson was limited in practice Wednesday. 

Lamb is the only player on the injury report for the Cowboys as he’s still in concussion protocol. Lamb did practice Wednesday as Dallas hopes he’s cleared on the short week. 

While Buffalo may be fully healthy, it’s a different story in New Orleans. The Saints officially ruled out running back Alvin Kamara after the star running back did not practice all week due to a knee injury. The club will also be without starting All-Pro right tackle Ryan Ramczyk and defensive end Marcus Davenport as well. Meanwhile, Mark Ingram did return to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday, which gives him chance to try and help the Saints backfield in the wake of losing Kamara once again.

Sunday games

The Steelers are getting healthier as they gear up for Week 12. Pass-rusher T.J. Watt (hip/knee),, safety Minkah Fitzpatrick (COVID list) and defensive end Isaiahh Loudermilk (groin) were all back at practice on Wednesday after missing last week. Watt and Loudermilk both practiced on a limited basis. Meanwhile, corner Joe Haden (foot) along with offensive linemen Trai Turner (knee) and J.C. Hassenauer (pectoral) did not practice. 

Cincinnati was without wide receiver Auden Tate as he continues to deal with a thigh injury. Meanwhile, guard Hakeem Adeniji (ankle), corner Darius Phillips (hip), and defensive tackle Tyler Shelvin (knee) were all limited. 

Michael Carter (ankle) was the lone Jets player missing from practice to begin the week. Meanwhile, five players were limited, including receiver Corey Davis (groin), defensive lineman Shaq Lawson (wrist), and linebacker C.J. Mosley (shoulder).  

Defensive back Lonnie Johnson Jr. and receiver Davion Davis were the two Texans held out of practice on Wednesday for injury reasons as they are about dealing with an illness. Meanwhile, defensive lineman Jonathan Greenard (foot), linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill (knee) and defensive back A.J. Moore Jr. (back) were all limited. 

In all, the Buccaneers had 11 players listed on their first injury report of the week after defeating the Giants on Monday night. That said, the team did hold a walk-through, so this is an estimation of what their statuses would have been had they held a full-fledged session. Wide receiver Mike Evans (back), linebacker Devin White (quad), left guard Ali Marpet (abdomen) and wide receiver Antonio Brown (ankle) were the four Bucs who did not practice. On a positive note, defensive tackle Vita Vea (knee) — who missed last week’s win over New York — was back at practice on a limited basis.

Indy saw linebacker Darius Leonard (ankle), receiver T.Y. Hilton (toe), and corner T.J. Carrie (knee) all practice in a limited capacity to begin the week. Meanwhile, guard Quenton Nelson was the lone player missing from action as he was held out due to an ankle injury. 

After missing last week’s loss to New England, Cordarrelle Patterson was limited in Atlanta’s first practice of the week. That’s certainly a positive sign for his chances to make his return against the Jags on Sunday. Meanwhile, Safety Jaylinn Hawkins, who also missed Week 11, was a full participant in practice. Defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard (ankle) and cornerback Kendall Sheffield (hamstring) were all missing from Wednesday’s session. 

Jacksonville had eight players listed on the initial injury report with three players missing from the session — receiver Tavon Austin (shoulder), corner Shaquill Griffin (concussion), and linebacker Myles Jack (knee). Running back James Robinson (heel, knee) was among those limited. 

Carolina has a small injury report to begin the week as they listed just three players on the opening report. Left tackle Dennis Daley (glute) was a full participant, while guard John Miller (ankle) was limited, and defensive back Myles Hartsfield (wrist) was the lone non-participant. 

Corners Byron Jones and Xavien Howard were both given a veteran rest day on Wednesday, while defensive back Elijah Campbell (toe, knee) and tight end Adam Shaheen (knee) were the two Dolphins who did not practice. Linebacker Elandon Roberts (hip), defensive tackle Christian Wilkins (quad) and safety Jevon Holland (knee, ankle) were among those limited.

Tennessee had a Thanksgiving grocery list-sized injury report on Wednesday. In all, 16 players were listed with 10 of those not participating in the week’s opening session. Key among them was wide receiver A.J. Brown who is dealing with a chest injury. Running back Jeremy McNichols (concussion) and Rashaan Evans (ankle) were two others that made up the big list. Meanwhile, Running back D’Onta Foreman (tricep) was limited. 

New England also had a rather large injury report, but no player was missing from practice. Defensive lineman Christian Barmore (knee), offensive tackle Trent Brown, Tight end Hunter Henry (neck), and running back Damien Harris (neck) were among the 11 Patriots listed as limited participants. 

The Eagles ran a walkthrough on Wednesday so their injury report is an estimation. Had they gone full speed, defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (rest), running back Jordan Howard (knee) and corner Darius Slay (concussion) all would have been held out. 

New York was missing a handful of players to begin the week of practice with receivers Kadarius Toney (quad) and Sterling Shepard (quad) along with tight end Kyle Rudolph (ankle) headlining the group of six Giants not practicing on Wednesday. Running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) was limited. 

L.A. was missing four players to begin the week — Safety Alohi Gilman (quad), defensive back Trey Marshall (ankle, hip), corner Asante Samuel Jr. (concussion), and defensive back Mark Webb Jr. (knee). Guard Matt Feiler (ankle) was the lone limited player.

The Broncos were without safety Kareem Jackson on Wednesday and head coach Vic Fangio did reveal that his neck/shoulder injury could impact his game status this week. Meanwhile, tackle Bobby Massie (ankle), running back Mike Boone (hip) and linebacker Baron Browning (back) all returned to practice on a limited basis. Fangio also noted that linebacker Bradley Chubb has looked good as he continues to sit on IR and possibly slated to make his return this week. 

Los Angeles was without three players to begin the week. Linebacker Leonard Floyd (concussion) and corner Donte Deayon (thigh) were missing due to injury, while veteran tackle Andrew Whitworth was given a rest day. 

Green Bay held a walkthrough, so this injury report is an estimation. Had they gone through a full session, Aaron Rodgers (toe), David Bakhtiari (knee), Kevin King (hip, knee), and Malik Taylor (abdomen) all would have been held out. Davante Adams (ankle) and Aaron Jones (knee) would have been limited. 

Everson Griffen was the only Vikings player not practicing on Wednesday. His absence is not injury-related and comes after an incident at his home where he is now in the care of mental health professionals. Meanwhile, linebacker Anthony Barr (knee), corner Bashaud Breeland (groin) and guard Wyatt Davis (ankle) were all limited. Defensive tackle Dalvin Tomlinson was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list and will miss the game.

After missing Week 11 with a finger injury that required surgery, running back Elijah Mitchell (rib, finger) was limited for the 49ers on Wednesday along with corner Josh Norman (rib), and offensive lineman Laken Tomlinson (ankle). Running back JaMycal Hasty (ankle) and defensive lineman Maurice Hurst (calf) were theoonly Niners players missing from practice due to injury reasons.

Cleveland held out quarterback Baker Mayfield from Wednesday’s practice as he deals with a left shoulder, foot, and groin injury. He was joined by linebacker Tony Fields (illness), defensive tackle Malik Jackson (knee), receiver Jarvis Landry (knee), receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones (groin), and receiver Anthony Schwartz (concussion). Pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney (neck, wrist, knee) was limited. The Browns also designated running back Kareem Hunt and tackle Jack Conklin to return off IR. 

Lamar Jackson practiced in full to begin the week after he missed last week’s game against Chicago due to an illness. Wide receiver Marquise Brown (thigh) was also back at practice, albeit on a limited basis. A total of 10 Ravens didn’t practice on Wednesday, including defensive tackle Calais Campbell (concussion) and right tackle Patrick Mekari (ankle).

Trent Dilfer Has A Strong Opinion About Today’s NFL Game

Published

Today’s NFL boasts many outstanding quarterbacks, including some who are just getting started, as well as more exciting high-powered offenses than it had a generation ago.

However, some people aren’t impressed, as all they can see is a league that has gotten softer due to rule changes.

One of those people who doesn’t seem to like the modern-day game is former quarterback Trent Dilfer, who made those feelings known to a wide audience.

Over the last decade or so, the NFL has made changes to numerous rules, such as pass interference penalties and rules having to do with protecting quarterbacks, and it has resulted in a game that is faster and more crowd-pleasing.

The downside is that the game is a little less physical than it used to be.

As a result, there are more quarterbacks putting up 4,000 yards in a season than there were decades ago.

Something similar has taken place in the NBA, where scoring is higher than it has been in about 50 years, thanks in part to rule changes on defense, and it has caused many fans to complain about the perceived lack of defense nowadays.

Oftentimes, people cannot have it both ways, as pro football can be tougher and more physical, but it would have to come at the expense of crowd-pleasing play.

Then there is the safety issue, which has been a big topic of discussion in recent years due to studies that have revealed the extent of CTE and other types of brain trauma among former NFL players.

Some of the rule changes Commissioner Roger Goodell has enacted have attempted to reduce the risk of brain trauma, but of course, players from past eras will lament that it has made the game, as well as today’s players, too soft.

PFF Reveals Their Franchise Tag Candidate For Chiefs

Whether they win the Super Bowl or not this Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs will have some roster roles to plug this offseason.

One decision they will have to make is what to do with offensive tackle Orlando Brown Jr., who will be a free agent this offseason.

Pro Football Focus feels he is their best candidate for their franchise tag.

Brown is one of the NFL’s best tackles, and the proof is in the pudding, as he was named to the Pro Bowl for the fourth straight year this season.

At age 26, he should have at least a few more good years left in him, which aligns perfectly with the relative youth of the Kansas City roster.

Brown is also a durable player, as he has appeared in almost every single game over the past four years despite playing one of the most grueling positions in football.

The Philadelphia Eagles possess a fearsome defense that was tops in passing yards allowed during the regular season, and Brown will have a big task in keeping that pass-rush attack at bay while protecting quarterback Patrick Mahomes and giving him time to work his magic.

Philly seems to be slightly favored in the Super Bowl, but Mahomes is always a singular threat, even though he has been dealing with a sprained ankle he suffered in the Chiefs’ Divisional round win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Even without star wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who was sent to the Miami Dolphins last offseason, it wouldn’t surprise anyone if Mahomes overcomes Philly’s defense to claim his second Vince Lombardi Trophy in four years.
