As you all know things can change before Sunday kickoff so be sure to check back as we will be updating Injury status throughout the weekend and then every 10 minutes starting at 11:30 Sunday morning up until the 1pm kickoffs.
We will then check back in with updates starting at 3pm for the late games.
UPDATE: Darren Sproles has been ruled out with a fractured hand elevating Pierre Thomas to the primary RB for Monday night against Philadelphia.
At the RB position, those that feared an injury thanks to MJD’s holdout had their nightmares realized in the Black Hole as he has been ruled out for week 9 and might miss a large chunk of time if his injury is of the Lisfranc variety (as 2011 RUN DMC owners can attest to). Fragile Felix has been mediocre at best in relief of Demarco Murray. Phil Tanner could be a deep sleeper worthy rostering especially in TD heavy leagues as he could be the short-term goal line back in Big D.
At the WR position, multiple big names remained in street clothes during week 8 as Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson gave way to James Jones/Randall Cobb – talk about a wealth of riches for the Pack. Megatron’s Madden curse season continues as he missed Friday’s practice but the Lions still expect him to suit up. Titus Young and rookie Ryan Broyles are worth adding. Dez Bryant’s near miraculous last second catch against the G-men resulted in a hip injury but he’s fully expected to suit up for the Sunday Night in Hotlanta.
