Week 14 NFL Coverage:
Denver Broncos: WR Emmanuel Sanders suffers torn Achilles at practice – December 5th, 2018
Shortly after being helped off the field by the Broncos coaching staff we officially have the medical diagnosis on the injury. Today, Sanders rolled his already injured heel which further injured him which could be the cause of this. The Broncos are having a huge turnaround after a slow start the year and Sanders as well. With Demaryius Thomas gone via trade and Sanders done for the year, the Broncos will depend a lot on Courtland Sutton down the stretch of the season. Denver is still in the playoff race.

Week 13 NFL Coverage:
San Francisco 49ers: RB Matt Breida re-aggravated ankle injury during pre-game warmups – December 2nd, 2018
Following today’s loss to Seattle, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said that Matt Breida re-aggravated his ankle in pregame warmups which lead to him not getting the majority of the carries today. The 49ers got a bit hurty at running back today with Breida’s injury and at one point Jeremy Wilson went to the locker room but luckily was able to return. Breida’s ankle injury will be something to monitor this week.
Carolina Panthers: TE Greg Olsen ruled out for the remainder of the game with leg injury – December 2nd, 2018
Another leg injury for Greg Olsen who will not return to the game. Earlier this season, Greg Olsen sustained a leg fracture which cost him a few weeks but now he faces a whole new leg injury. We will provide more updates once we get more information. (Update: Greg Olsen was seen wearing crutches following the game which is not a good sign for him and his ability to play the rest of the year. Ian Thomas served as his backup and will resume that role next week and beyond.)
San Francisco 49ers: RB Jeremy Wilson leaves game vs. Seattle with leg injury – December 2nd, 2018
Wilson checked out of the game and went to the locker room. We will have more once more news is reported. (Update: Wilson has returned to the ball game after checking out).
Detroit Lions: RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) out Sunday vs. Rams – November 30th, 2018
In back-to-back weeks, the Detroit Lions will be without Johnson. Also, this week vs. Los Angeles, they will be without fullback Nick Bellore. The Detroit Lions will enter Sunday’s matchup with LeGarrette Blount who will manage the bulk of the carries with Theo Reddick and Zach Zenner backing him up.
Week 12 NFL Coverage:
Pittsburgh Steelers: LB T.J. Watt left Sunday’s vs. Denver with wrist injury – November 25th, 2018
Watt sustained the injury attempting to punch a ball out of Case Keenum’s hand. Watt walked off the field and later to the locker room holding his wrist. More info to come once we get it.
Cincinnati Bengals: QB Andy Dalton out for the game with a thumb injury – November 25th, 2018
Not good news as it’s on his throwing hand. Dalton sustained the injury after he attempted to recover a fumble on a snap that went over his head. Quarterback Jeff Driskel has filled in for Dalton who is out for the game currently.
New England Patriots: TE Rob Gronkowski active this week vs. New York – November 25th, 2018
Having missed three games in four weeks, Rob Gronkowski will be active this week vs. the Jets.
Seattle Seahawks: LB K.J. Wright inactive this week vs. Carolina – November 25th, 2018
K.J. Wright’s once-injured knee is re-aggravated and will miss this week vs. Carolina. Earlier this season, Wright missed the first six games due to the knee injury but, bounced back and played in the team’s last three games. The Seahawks will continue to monitor this going into next week which could draw a questionable tag going into next week’s game.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: DeSean Jackson active vs. San Francisco – November 25th, 2018
DeSean Jackson has been dealing with a thumb injury and was listed as questionable all week. The Buccaneers will have a full build of health at receiver today vs. San Francisco.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Injury updates announced vs. San Francisco – November 24th, 2018
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced that the team will be without LaVonte David, Justin Evans and M.J. Stewart this weekend. Rookie running back Ronald Jones II and receiver DeSean Jackson has been listed as questionable. Ronald Jones is a notable name as he is possibly returning after being out of action since week 8. Should Jones play, he will serve as backup to striding running back Peyton Barber but should get a fair amount of carries. (Source: Greg Auman of The Athletic)
Los Angeles Chargers: Melvin Gordon (hamstring/knee) questionable vs. Arizona – November 23rd
Melvin Gordon has dealt with the same injury the week heading into the game vs. Tennessee in London and missed that game. He will be a game-time decision on Sunday vs. Arizona. Should he not suite up against Arizona, Austin Ekeler will get the start with Justin Jackson getting backup reps. (Source: Eric Williams of ESPN)
