It was a very quiet this past Sunday in the NFL injury landscape. There was Jacoby Brissett, or Spicy Brisket, who did injure his knee, and a few other spots, but this week has mostly been a recovery week for stars like Patrick Mahomes, James Conner, T.Y. Hilton, and others. It’s important to keep up with all of the latest injury news and reports, especially as he slowly crawl to Week 14 and the start of the fantasy playoffs.Please, blog, may I have some more?

Really Todd Gurley? This is when you decide to get injured?
The Cable Guy is a classic underrated comedy — I don’t care what anyone says. Back to Gurley — he should play. Don’t worry.Please, blog, may I have some more?

Danny Amendola, WR, Knee: Amendola struggled with this injury last week to produce his worst fantasy game of the year. He didn’t practice on Wednesday so things are not looking good. My take: Will play, bench him. 1 catch for 13 yards was all he managed with this same injury.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Jimmy Graham, Thumb: After the notification went out that Graham broke his thumb in week 11 I think all of his owners threw their phones against the wall. Then a second notification went off saying Graham is going to try and play through it we all picked up our shattered phones confused. It’ll be interesting to see what type of metal claw the Packers medical staff rigs up to make Graham able to play. I hope it looks like Clay Matthews’s club hand with fake tape finger claws. My take: Won’t play. At least for this first week I don’t think he’ll be in the lineup until the Packers rebuild him. They have the technology.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I apologize for not being able to write an Ambulance Chasers last week — I was questionable going into Wednesday when I write this article, but it quickly turned to doubtful as the day went on. I tried going to my big boy job, but had to leave early Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I’m unfortunately and nerdily allergic to cough/cold medicines so every time I get sick it hits really hard and I just have to ride it out.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Four straight weeks of double-digit fantasy points has David Njoku trending upwards in the top TE pecking order. He was a limited participant on Wednesday which leads me to believe that he’ll be playing (and eating) this weekend. His opponent, the Steelers, have allowed double-digit points to TEs for 5 straight weeks and Njoku will make that 6 despite only catching 3 passes for 13 yards in week 1 against the Steelers. It’s a whole njew Njoku in week 8! My take: Will play, start him.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Dalvin Cook, RB, Hamstring: DALVIN! Everything I’m reading about Dalvin is about how he took handoffs from Kirk Cousins.
He’s missed two of the last three weeks and his owners are probably starting to get a wee bit frustrated. Well I have good news for you… My take: Will play, start him.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Some of the players on this list are overstaying their welcome. I’m looking at you Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, Will Fuller and DeAndre Hopkins. I wish they’d bring back the probable injury status. It would make my job a lot easier. Because 75% of the guys on this list are probable — just resting. Sterling […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’ve reached the final evolution of this column I think. From now on, these wounded warriors will be listed alphabetically and for each of them I’ll be giving you my take on whether or not they’ll play and whether or not you should start him in your line-up.
