The NFL injury report has some notable names heading into Week 12, including Marshawn Lynch, Carlos Hyde, Justin Forsett, Matt Forte, Alshon Jeffery, Devonta Freeman, Peyton Manning, Michael Floyd, Darqueze Dennard and Joe Flacco. Lynch was out for Week 11 for the Seahawks and is possibly dealing with a sports hernia, while Flacco and Forsett suffered serious injuries for the Ravens.
Lynch and Carlos Hyde were both out for Week 11 with injuries, while Matt Forte and Alshon Jeffery missed out for the Chicago Bears against the Denver Broncos. Devonta Freeman suffered a concussion for the Atlanta Falcons, while Peyton Manning and Michael Floyd were out for the Broncos and the Cardinals. Manning is dealing with foot and rib injuries and he likely will be out in Week 12 against the Patriots, leaving Brock Osweiler to make a second straight start.
Lynch has been dealing with an abdomen injury for multiple weeks for the Seahawks and now there is a chance that he could need surgery. According to Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com, head coach Pete Carroll said that Lynch will see an abdominal specialist in Philadelphia to take a look at the injury. Ian Rapoport at NFL.com reports that the "belief" is that Lynch is dealing with a sports hernia and he may need surgery. If Lynch has surgery, Thomas Rawls would take over as the starting RB and Lynch could return for the playoffs if the Seahawks make it.
Carlos Hyde remained sidelined in Week 11 with a foot injury and he could be out again this week if the injury continues to linger. Hyde has played in seven games this season and the Niners have been using Shaun Draughn as their lead back. Matt Forte and Alshon Jeffery were out for the Bears on Sunday, but Forte is reportedly "on track" to play on Thanksgiving, according to Jeff Dickerson at ESPN. Jeffery could suit up after dealing with a groin injury, but there has not been an update yet after Jeffery was held out this week.
Michael Floyd was held out in Week 11 with a hamstring injury for the Cardinals, while Joe Flacco and Justin Forsett suffered serious injuries for the Ravens. Forsett broke his arm and will be out for the season, while Flacco suffered multiple torn ligaments in his knee and he will be done for the year. The Ravens have already suffered injuries with Steve Smith and Terrell Suggs and now Flacco and Forsett are done for the season.
Some other injury news and notes:

The Bengals have Darqueze Dennard dealing with an injury after Dennard had to leave the game against the Cardinals in the third quarter. Dennard is dealing with a shoulder injury and Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the team is worried Dennard may have suffered a tear, which could end his season.
