Week 9 in the NFL started Thursday night with the Eagles Maintaining perfection in the season, moving to 8-0 for the first time in franchise history by defeating Texas in Houston. Now, we’ve got the rest of the Week 9 slate on the horizon and there are some interesting games our teeth are sinking into, including three divisional games and a head-to-head match between the two former Super Bowl champions.
Of course, with a new week of gaming comes a new batch of infections that we need to keep track of. As the teams wrap up their training week, they’ve released their final injury reports and posted match statuses for Week 9. Below, you’ll be able to find each of these reports and a breakdown of some of the biggest injuries.

Justin Herbert will have to have surgery without his two biggest wide arms on Sunday, with Allen and Williams out with hamstring and ankle injuries respectively. Carter is also dubious about playing because he fell ill this week. Josh Palmer is definitely someone you should consider starting with in fiction and/or DFS. Chargers won’t have the kicker this Sunday, as Hopkins walked out with a hamstring problem. It will be Decker Kicker (Cameron Decker) who will take over these duties on Sunday.
The Hawks won’t have their corner star Terrell for the second week in a row, as he’s still working through that hamstring injury. Wilkinson is out after not training all week, and then Harris comes into question with an ankle problem. It was limited to Friday’s training session.
Kracraft was the only Dolphin company to be disqualified on Friday. Jackson was activated from the injured reserve this week, and was a limited participant in practice on Friday. However, it has been listed as questionable to play. All four players listed as suspect at Armstead, Conner, Rowe and Phillips were at least a participant on Friday. Rowe was a full participant, which is a good sign he’s there, but Phillips was added to the report on Friday for the first time with a quad injury. It was limited.
Chicago saw Carter appear in the injury report on Friday and did not participate in training because he is dealing with an illness. Other than him, the entire club is in good health with Eddie Jackson and Stephen Jenkins among the players who trained fully on Friday and did not carry any rating. Right intervention Larry Borum (concussion) is also fully practiced and it’s good to go on a Sunday. Chicago is also activating left guard Cody Whitehair (MCL) from the injured reserve and may be on the starting line.
Hubbard’s rating was downgraded to Friday’s non-participant training and has since been disqualified from Sunday’s game with the Bengals. That means it will be another show for D’Onta Foreman, who rushed for 118 yards last week. Both Jackson and Barno are listed as suspects but trained on Friday, which is encouraging for their status.
Cincinnati will be a weak cornerback on Sunday after Hilton was left out after he was unable to train this week with a finger injury. The Bengals will also be without teammate Awuzie and they have listed the flowers as questionable.
- Packers: LB De’Vondre Campbell (knee), CB Shemar Jean-Charles (ankle) OUT; OT David Bakhtiari (knee), OG Elgton Jenkins (knee/foot), WR Allen Lazard (shoulder), LB Preston Smith (shoulder/neck), WR Christian Watson (concussion) Question
- black: CB Chase Lucas (ankle), S Eviato Melifono (ankle), T Matt Nelson (calf), CBAG Parker (hip) out; Josh Reynolds (back), T Taylor Decker (thigh), Dee Charles Harris (thigh), RBD Andre Swift (ankle and shoulder), T. E. Brock Wright (concussion)
The Packers won’t have their captain at line-back on Sunday, as Campbell picked up a knee injury in the loss to Buffalo on Sunday night and hasn’t trained all week. Aaron Rodgers has some liner guys, as both Bakhtiari and Jenkins are dubious. However, both players were limited participants in practice on Friday. The wide receiving team may be reduced again, as Lazard and Watson are both doubtful to play. Lazard was limited all week, while Watson was limited Thursday and Friday.
Swift was able to train on a limited basis on Thursdays and Fridays. This comes after Swift was able to return to action last week against Miami after sitting out since week three due to injury. Played 55% of the picks last week.
- ponies: RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle), CB Tony Brown (hamstring), QB Matt Ryan (right shoulder), LB Grant Stuard (chest) out; T Dennis Kelly (calf, ankle), LB EJ Speed (ankle) is questionable
- patriots: C David Andrews (concussion), WR DeVante Parker (knee), OT Marcus Cannon (concussion) out; RB Damien Harris (disease), DT Christian Barmore (knee), S Kyle Dugger (ankle), RB Pierre Strong Jr. (hamstrings), LB Josh Uche (hamstrings), DE Deatrich Wise Jr. (Ankle), CB Jack Jones (Illness) Doubtful
Taylor has been officially disqualified after not being able to train all week due to an ankle injury. That means Deon Jackson is about to get started and should see a greater workload after Indianapolis replaced Nyheim Hines earlier in the week. The Ponies also own Zack Moss, who they acquired in that deal with Buffalo.
McJones will not take center stage again this week, as Andrews is still dealing with the concussion he suffered against Chicago. Jones won’t have one of his best receivers either, as Parker will be inactive due to a knee injury. He hasn’t trained all week. There is little spread of disease, and it has affected important players in the Patriots. Both running back Harris, and Jones running back are questionable to play due to illness. Harris was tied up on Friday, while Jones sat down. There is some concern on the defensive side of the ball as well, with Barmore, Dogger, Uchi and Wise all being dubious. However, all four players trained throughout the week as limited participants.
Buffalo will be without the safety of Jordan Boyer after he injured his elbow last Sunday against the Packers. Poyer hasn’t trained all week, so it’s not particularly surprising that he was eventually left out. Meanwhile, von Miller, who missed the first two days of training due to what the team noted as an ankle injury in addition to rest, was a full participant on Friday and carried no injury.
Corey Davis was sidelined all week due to a knee injury he initially sustained in Week 7. It has been shelved ever since. New York has a 10th bye, so hopefully he can come back after that. James Robinson was added to the report after a knee injury on Saturday’s tour. He had five gigs for 17 yards on his debut with the Jets last week.
Everyone else on the Jets roster is healthy and ready to play in Week 9.
Tomlinson will miss his first game of the season as the Vikings defensive line man deals with a calf injury. Head coach Kevin O’Connell said Jerez Tonga will see a slight increase in business with Tomlinson sidelined.
Washington will again be without rookie Jahan Dotson, who has been sidelined since sustaining a hamstring injury before the Leaders face Green Bay in Week 7. On a more positive note, Logan Thomas was a full participant on Friday and holds no ratings beyond. Being limited on Wednesdays and Thursdays with a calf injury. Ron Rivera also told reporters that Chase Young – who is set to return to training this week – will not play against Minnesota, albeit after a good work week.
Darren Waller missed the last two games with a hamstring injury and was a limited participant all week in practice, which has him officially listed as a suspect in this match in Jacksonville. Coach Josh McDaniels said Waller was “working hard to try and get back as quickly as possible.” Meanwhile, after being handcuffed Wednesday due to illness, Davante Adams was a full participant on Thursday and Friday and did not hold any designation for this game.
Jacksonville is in good health entering this match as they only scored Jamal Agnew in the final injury report. He was tied up all week with a knee injury and is officially listed as suspect.
Gino Smith will not have the speedy Goodwin at his disposal this week, as he has been ruled out with a thigh injury. The same goes for Taylor. Both players have not trained at all this week. Hart was restricted all week with a hamstring injury, then Blount was out of training on Friday with a quadriceps injury. Both players are listed as questionable to play.
Arizona excluded Garcia, Hudson and Matthew on Friday. The three have not trained all week. Star Safety Baker is in doubt to play after missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday. However, he returned in limited capacity on Friday. In fact, all five players listed as questionable by the Cardinals trained as limited participants on Friday.
Allen and Jefferson are dubious to play on Sunday, but both players have been limited participants in each of the last training sessions. The Rams injury report brings good news, as Cooper Cup is not widely named a game for the weekend. He’s been dealing with an ankle injury, but was finally back in full engagement condition on Friday. Cam Akers may play back this week after resolving his issues with the team.
Gage and Goedeke have been disqualified after not training all week. For Brate, he was a limited participant all week, but he wasn’t healthy enough to go. Winfield is still working on a comeback from his concussion. Although he was limited on Thursday and Friday, he will not be playing. Hicks may return this week despite his foot injury. He was fully involved in practice on Wednesdays and Thursdays, but sat down on Fridays. It is questionable to play. As for Davis and Murphy-Banting, while they are dubious to play, they were both fully involved in training on Friday.
Tannehill was able to train in a limited fashion on Friday but coach Mike Frabel indicated the quarterback would be a player. Game time decision. Tannehill suffered an ankle injury in Week 7 and missed Tennessee’s 17-10 win over Texas. If he can’t go, that rookie will push Malik Willis to his second career start. Derek Henry, who stopped practicing on Thursday, returned as a full participant on Friday and did not carry any rating.
Kansas City is in good health as Sunday’s game with Tennessee approaches. Jodi Fortson is the only player included in the final injury report where every other player has been able to train fully.
Ravens star Mark Andrews missed training for the second day in a row with knee and shoulder injuries. Joss Edwards also ran not training again due to a hamstring injury. Cornback Marcus Peters sat out of training after being a limited participant on Thursday due to knee and quadruple injuries. Demarcus Robinson’s wide receiver was a new addition to the injury report, as he was limited on Friday with a thigh injury after his full participation on Thursday.
Running back Mark Ingram (knee) and Marshawn Lattimore (belly) did not train for the second day in a row, while wide receiver Saint Jarvis Landry (ankle), narrow side Adam Trautman (ankle), offensive tackle Ryan Ramchic (rest/knee), defensive tackle David Onimata (thigh) and middle Eric McCoy (shoulder) were limited participants on Friday.
