Week 10 was very kind to fantasy football players in terms of injuries. Following weeks where we’ve seen player after player go down with serious injuries, it was a nice change of pace. That being said, there were a guys that were dinged up on the Sunday gridiron. Here’s a quick update on them:
- The number one player in fantasy football Peyton Manning will undergo an MRI on Monday. While the Broncos sealed the victory with Manning connecting with Demaryius Thomas, it came at a cost. Manning was taken down by Chargers Corey Liuget and was seen with a noticeable limp. After the game Manning admitted that he was quite sore, but we’ll have to wait to see what the results of the MRI show. The only way that teams will be able to beat the Broncos is if they get hits on the 37-year old future Hall of Fame, and it’s been taking a toll. We’ll keep you updated on the results of his MRI.
- Speaking of ageless wonders, Tony Gonzalez injured his left toe and was limping around the Falcons locker room after the loss to Seattle. While they may be some of the smallest parts of the body, toe injuries are tough to overcome. That being said, Gonzalez is one of the toughest players in the game, so he may try and gut it out, especially considering this may be the last season of his career. He’s no Jimmy Graham at this point of his career, so he may not play well while hurt, but we’ll continue to monitor his status.
- While Bears QB Jay Cutler started the game against the Lions, a sprained ankle kept him from finishing it. He told reporters that he was feeling quite limited in terms of his mobility so he couldn’t continue on. With backup QB Josh McCown playing very well, the Bears will probably take it very slow with their baby-faced QB.
Quick hits: 49er TE Vernon Davis has been diagnosed with a concussion…Seneca Wallace lasted one quarter before pulling his groin. He likely won’t be healthy enough to play next week…Stevie Johnson is already unsure of his Week 11 unavailability, a poor sign…Ben Tate played hurt but looked much better than he did last week. It seems he came out unscathed…CJ Spiller‘s high ankle sprain is going to be a problem for the next few weeks…Terrelle Pryor has a sprained MCL…Jake Locker‘s season may be done. It’s too bad for a guy who was really making strides and leading a fantasy-relevant offense…Andre Brown is officially back…Roddy White played the majority of the snaps, so at least it isn’t his health that’s holding him back now…
