There were a number of notable injuries around the NFL on Sunday, including with Andy Dalton, Thomas Rawls, Greg Olsen and Tyler Eifert. The Bengals saw Dalton leave the game against the Steelers after injuring his thumb and now he could miss some time moving forward. Rawls suffered a serious injury and now is going to be out for the season for the Seahawks. Olsen and Eifert suffered injuries at tight end along with Charles Clay, while Ware had to leave the game for the Chiefs. UPDATE: Blount went into the locker room during Sunday night football.
Vincent Jackson injured his knee against the Saints and had to leave the game for the Buccaneers. Jackson previously missed time this season with a knee injury and there is a chance that he aggravated the same injury for Tampa Bay. Spencer Ware had to leave for the Chiefs with a rib injury and he finished the day with eight carries for 52 yards. Charcandrick West handled the load for the Chiefs and fantasy owners should keep an eye on the injury report heading into next week.
Dalton is dealing with a fractured thumb and according to NFL Media, Marvin Lewis said that Dalton will be out for at least a week for the Bengals. Dalton suffered the injury and was replaced by AJ McCarron and afterwards Dalton said he suffered a fracture in his thumb and will be seeing a specialist. The Bengals came into the weekend with the top seed in the AFC, but with Dalton injured and a game against the Broncos coming up after the loss to the Steelers, Cincy may not be able to stay in the top part of the AFC standings.
Thomas Rawls had to leave the game for the Seahawks with an ankle injury and afterwards head coach Pete Carroll said Rawls will be out for the season. Carroll said that Rawls suffered a serious ankle injury and will not be able to return this season. Marshawn Lynch has been out while recovering from surgery and now that leaves Fred Jackson and DuJuan Harris as the main running backs coming out of Week 14, although the Seahawks could add another player this week.
Tyler Eifert had to leave the game for the Bengals with a head injury and he was evaluated for a concussion. Eifert previously came into the game dealing with a neck injury. Greg Olsen dealt with a left knee injury against the Panthers while trying to make a touchdown catch and he was taken out of the game after that. Matt Hasselbeck had to leave the game twice against the Jaguars for the Colts, while Jarvis Landry comes into the game against the Giants as probable with a knee injury. Landry only had one full practice for the team this week.
