Week 2 NFL Injury Updates: Toby Gerhart Expecting to Play
It’s only been one week of hard-hitting NFL action, yet there are a slew of injuries teams have to work through. The injuries themselves are key, but with less than a week to prepare for replacements or to try to get star players back closer to 100%, time is seemingly running out.
The Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs have it pretty bad on defense, as the Chiefs lost two starters to torn Achilles tendons and Miami should be without all three of their starting linebackers in week two.
For the bigger names and updates to their injuries, let’s break down the mid-week NFL injury report for week 2:
Shaun Hill, QB, St. Louis Rams
Hill is the only quarterback in real danger of missing time this week. He’s dealing with a minor calf injury but hasn’t practiced yet, suggesting backup Austin Davis will get the start against the Buccaneers.
Eddie Lacy, RB, Green Bay Packers
Lacy sustained a concussion in week one but with well over a week to get better, he looks like a safe bet to face the Jets at home in week two.
Toby Gerhart, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars
Gerhart suffered a scary injury in week one but luckily is only dealing with an ankle sprain. He rested early in the week and will practice on Thursday, making him a near-lock to face a depleted Redskins run defense this week.
Ben Tate, RB, Cleveland Browns
Tate has a banged up knee that will cause him to miss 2-4 weeks. Thanks to a long injury history, Cleveland is playing it safe with their top rusher and will rotate Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell in his absence.
Jordan Cameron, TE, Cleveland Browns
Cameron has a bothersome shoulder issue, but an MRI cleared him of any tears and he should be able to face the Saints in week two. His injury is all about pain management right now.
Jordan Reed, TE, Washington Redskins
Reed has had a long battle with concussions, so luckily his injury has nothing to do with his head. However, he has a low grade hamstring injury that should keep him out of week two and possibly a little longer.
