There was a notable late addition to this week’s injury report. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray seemed to fine all week, but then on Friday, his team reported him with a hamstring injury and slapped him with the questionable designation. There’s hope that he will end up playing against the Rams this week, since he did manage to practice right through Friday. However, if he does play, it leaves open the possibility that he’ll be less than 100 percent, always a dicey proposition for running quarterback. This is one of those injury situations where you’ll need to stay on top of the news this week.
The Eagles will most likely be without running back Jordan Howard this week for an enticing matchup against the Dolphins. Get Miles Sanders into your lineup. Matt Breida is expected to return to action for the 49ers this week. He’s still something of a 1b to Tevin Coleman, but the later’s struggles recently give Breida some upside worth your consideration. While we’re on running backs, Marlon Mack isn’t back this week, but there’s hope he could be back in action next week.
Yes, the Patriots’ top three receivers are all listed as questionable this week. And, yes, they are all expected to play. Of the three, Julian Edelman is a true No. 1, must-start. Colts receiver Parris Campbell is looking like a game-time decision. If he does get the green light, he’s a decent play this week.
Here’s a look at the skill players on the Week 13 injury report. Good luck!
