2018 NFL Injury Report - Week 15
It is getting down to the final weeks of the NFL’s regular season, and as the league enter week 15, here are some of the key players who are dealing with injuries: Here is the official NFL Injury Report.
Tyreek Hill – Chiefs
Hill has been the biggest weapon for the Chiefs since the start season as he has accounted 74 catches for 1,258 yards and 11 touchdowns. Hill played through a foot injury against the Ravens, which Hill came up big in the Chiefs victory. Hill should be ready for Kansas City’s Thursday night showdown with the Los Angeles Chargers.
Odell Beckham Jr – Giants
Beckham missed the Giants game against the Washington Redskins on Sunday with a quadriceps injury. It looks as if he will be ready for New York in their game against the Tennessee Titans. He brings a lot to the Giants offense, but they sure looked like they didn’t need him as the Giants put up a lot of points against the Redskins. This is definitely an injury to keep an eye on.
LeSean McCoy – Bills
Shady McCoy is listed as day-to-day after suffering a hamstring injury in the Bills game on Sunday. It is no surprise for McCoy as he has suffered from this injury in the past, most notably in 2015 and 2016. It looks like the Bills could be without McCoy the rest of the season, and if the Bills want him healthy for the start of the 2019 season, the Bills might be best off if they shut him down, for the rest of the season.
Ben Roethlisberger – Steelers
Roethlisberger got knocked out of the Steelers game late in the first half with a rib injury, before returning late in the game. The injury could limit Big Ben, but as the Steelers season is quickly slipping away, Pittsburgh needs him in the line-up no matter what. This injury could impact how well Ben will be able to play in the final weeks of the 2018 season. He’s always been an incredibly tough player, and although any rib injury is painful to play through, expect him to be ready to go for the Steelers on Sunday.
Corey Clement – Eagles
Clement suffered an ugly looking knee injury on Sunday, but for now, he seems to have avoided a season-ending injury that would require surgery. It looks like a knee sprain, but with how the injury happened it could be MCL or PCL injury. Clement’s recovery could at best be in four weeks, but the Eagles may not be in action in four weeks, as they are struggling for their playoff lives.
Jordan Reed- Redskins
Reed lasted far longer than he has in recent seasons, with injuries, especially around his foot and toes. That fear happened to Reed on Sunday and it looks to be an injury that will keep him out the rest of the season. Though this injury shouldn’t require surgery, the recovery time for Reed could be multiple weeks. It looks to be a toe sprain, and the Redskins will be without their star tight end for the rest of the season.
Lamar Jackson – Ravens
Jackson should be good to go for the Ravens in week 15 after tweaking his ankle against the Chiefs. Further evaluation will have to determine whether Jackson will be good to go for Baltimore on Sunday. If he isn’t they may have to a return Joe Flacco who should be returned from his month-long absence due to an injury of his own. Baltimore will need a healthy quarterback no matter what as they are in the thick of it with Pittsburgh for the AFC North division. Can Lamar Jackson lead the Ravens back to the playoffs?
