NFL Injury Round-Up: The Latest On Andrew Luck, Sam Bradford And Joe Flacco

It's Wednesday in the NFL, the day that injury reports start to matter and there are some big injuries out the to a few signal callers and play-makers that can really shake up some teams. Here is a round up of some of the biggest.Andrew Luck

The Indianapolis Colts will not be getting Andrew Luck back this week and likely not next week either. Expect to see Jacoby Brissett getting his second and third starts against the Cleveland Browns and Seattle Seahawks.

It's good news / bad news for the New England Patriots as Dont'a Hightower and Danny Amendola were limited in practice, but were out there. Tight end Rob Gronkowski was held out all together.

The Tennessee Titans are avoiding the weekend rush and ruling rookie wide receiver Corey Davis out for the game against Seattle.

Odell Beckham Jr  was limited in practice today with an ankle injury that kept him out of the first game, but the New York Giants wideout played in week two and should be there for week three.

Looks like the Philadelphia Eagles are down two defensive backs as both Jaylen Watkins and Rodney McLeod have hamstring injuries the suffered against the Kansas City Chiefs.

 

 

After cornerbacks Kevin Johnson (knee) and Jonathan Joseph (shoulder) suffered injuries last week, the Houston Texans signed cornerback Jonathan Banks.

First pick in the draft, Myles Garrett is now out of his walking boot and the Cleveland Browns hop to have their defensive end on the field soon.

Joe Flacco, quarterback for the 2-0 Baltimore Ravens, admitted his back was not 100% and is thankful that he just hasn't been hit that hard this season. The response from the Cincinnati and Cleveland defenses can not be printed on a family friendly website.

 

Part of the Carolina Panthers problem on Sunday was playing without starting center Ryan Kalil who woke with a crick in his neck and then losing tight end Greg Olsen. Kalil did not practice today and Olsen has been put on IR with a broken foot, the hope is he will return to the team in November. Ed Dickson will step up into his place.

After a good first game then missing the second, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford is considered day to day and was limited in practice today. Aren't we all day-to-day?

 

Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Marcus Gilbert (hamstring), receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (illness), tight end Jesse James (ankle) and center Maurkice Pouncey (illness) did not practice Wednesday. Defensive end Stephon Tuitt (biceps) and linebacker T.J. Watt (groin) were limited participants. Safety J.J. Wilcox (concussion) was a full participant, but was often time standing a lone on the field.
