27 Dec Key injury updates for fantasy football Week 16 – NFL
Injury concerns regarding players heading into the Sunday and Monday games can be critical. Each week, this Saturday blog entry will be dedicated to those who appear on the official Friday NFL injury report, as well as how their statuses might impact fantasy teams.
For those who might be new to this blog, injury reports provide some insight to a player’s status. The NFL requires teams to submit injury reports several times a week and identify the body parts involved in the injuries. Early in the week, these reports will indicate whether a player is not practicing, is limited in practice or is a full participant in practice. On Fridays, all players on injury reports are assigned one of the following designations by their teams: probable, questionable, doubtful or out. The designations in this blog reflect the injury reports filed with the league office Friday evening. Teams playing Monday night do not have to issue their designations until Saturday. The explanation for each designation is as follows:
Out: This is the easy one; the guy’s not playing Sunday.
Probable (P): This designation indicates a player is expected to play, barring a setback between the final injury report and kickoff. read more at espn.go.com
