2014 casualties (1 Viewer)

It may be a mix of Wolfe, Chris Maragos, and this year's fourth round pick, Jaylen Watkins, though. It's something to keep an eye on as the week progresses.

DeAngelo Hall re-tore his Achilles' tendon while at home this week.
Hall is already on season-ending I.R. because he tore his Achilles' in Week 3. It's unclear how he re-injured it at home, but it happened, and Hall had it repaired again on Thursday.

Not kidding: DeAngelo Hall was making a pizza in his kitchen and slipped. THAT is how he re-tore his repaired Achilles' tendon. I can't even

Browns BC Jim O'Neil said OLB Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) probably won't be healthy all season.
Mingo hurt his shoulder over the summer and has been playing with a harness to protect it. It's causing him to have trouble getting off blocks and also from wrapping up on tackles.

Matthews, Acho ... who will step up?
Good question: They used a rotation of Casey Matthews, Emmanuel Acho, and Marcus Smith when Kendricks was out. I'm guessing they do something similar, but I think we'll have to wait a day or two to see what the media says.

Cowboys LE Tyrone Crawford suffered an MCL injury in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.
A nine-game starter this season, Crawford is considered doubtful for next week's trip to London to take on the Jaguars
Rams DE William Hayes was carted to the locker room with an ankle injury during the Rams' Week 9 game against the 49ers.
Hayes was able to get off the field under his own power, but was placed on the cart after being examined on the sideline. He is questionable to return. Hayes had two sacks before leaving the game.
The Broncos fear MLB Nate Irving sustained a serious knee ligament injury in Sunday's loss at New England.
Irving got rolled up on by a teammate and was in severe pain
Steelers ILB Ryan Shazier was forced from Sunday night's Week 9 game against the Ravens with a right ankle injury.
Shazier attempted to play through the injury, but his return has been downgraded to out. Sean Spence has replaced him in the lineup.
Ian R. Rapoport , NFL Network, Sports Reporter
Doesn’t sound like the injury for #Steelers LB Ryan Shazier is a serious one. Just a twisted ankle was how it was described. Minor.

49ers LB Dan Skuta left the 49ers' Week 9 game against the Rams with a left-leg injury.
Skuta had his leg rolled up while missing a tackle on Tre Mason. He was able to limp off the field under his own power
Cowboys MLB Rolando McClain (right knee) is expected to be "fine" for Week 10.
McClain was in distress after getting rolled up late in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, but it was apparently just a scare.
Texans CB Johnathan Joseph left Sunday's Week 9 game against the Eagles in the first quarter with a concussion.

Texans CB Kareem Jackson left Sunday's Week 9 loss to the Eagles with a knee injury.
Jackson and Jonathan Joseph (concussion) both left in the first quarter
Steelers SS Troy Polamalu left Sunday night's Week 9 game against the Ravens with a sprained knee.
He's been ruled out for the rest of the game. Will Allen is expected to take over for Polamalu at strong safety.
Jets CB Antonio Allen was benched at halftime of the Week 9 loss at Kansas City.
Allen was getting whipped all over the field by Travis Kelce in the first half, giving up a 12-yard touchdown and a 34-yard completion. He was replaced by Josh Thomas. "I wanted to stop somebody," Ryan said when asked to explain why he benched Allen.
Bengals RT Andre Smith was forced from Week 9 against the Jaguars with an ankle injury.
Smith was hurt on Mohamed Sanu's 19-yard touchdown early in the second quarter. He immediately ripped his helmet off in pain and walked to the locker room. Veteran Marshall Newhouse has replaced Smith opposite LT Andrew Whitworth

Giants RCB Prince Amukamara exited Monday night's Week 9 game against the Colts with a torn biceps.
He'll likely require season-ending surgery and soon head to injured reserve. With Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie already playing through back and hamstring injuries and Walter Thurmond III lost for the season, the Giants' once-deep cornerback group will turn to Zack Bowman opposite DRC
The Bears are moving RT Jordan Mills to left guard.
With LG Matt Slauson tearing his pec in Week 8, the Bears are shuffling their line. Mills will slide inside between LT Jermon Bushrod and C Roberto Garza, with rookie Michael Ola taking over at right tackle next to RG Kyle Long.
Bengals CB Leon Hall is in the NFL's concussion protocol this week.
Dolphins S Michael Thomas will miss the rest of the season with a torn pectoral.
Thomas is the Dolphins' No. 4/5 safety, but has also seen time in the slot

The Ravens have engineered a shake-up at cornerback, cutting Dominique Franks and Chykie Brown and claiming cornerback Danny Gorrer off waivers from the Detroit Lions.

The Ravens also promoted rookie cornerback Tramain Jacobs from the practice squad to the active roster.
The Broncos fear MLB Nate Irving sustained a serious knee ligament injury in Sunday's loss at New England.
Irving got rolled up on by a teammate and was in severe pain
looks like lamin barrow or steven johnson will get the nod at mlb here. barrow is a rookie and hasn't done anything yet (except get a fine from the league office i think). i expect johnson to get the chance to start this week. all the chatter has been about how the coaches and players are ready for him to show something. he's been a reliable ST player to this point too.

don't they have that nelson dude?
from the Broncos website:

Nelson could return to the type of sub-package workload he received against the Jets. But in the base package, the next man on the depth chart is Steven Johnson, the Broncos' second-team middle linebacker, one spot ahead of rookie Lamin Barrow.
and an Interview with Demaryius Thomas just yesterday:

“(He’s) a hungry guy who’s been waiting for his opportunity,” Moore said. “Losing Nate has been tough, but I believe Steve is going to go in there and handle his business. Our staff trusts Steve. He knows the game. He knows our system, and he can play.”

Jaguars CB Peyton Thompson left Week 10 against the Cowboys with a rib injury.
Cowboys CB Tyler Patmon exited the team's Week 10 matchup with the Jaguars with ankle and knee injuries.

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks, who did not seem to take a liking to the reduction in his playing time caused by Aldon Smith's return to the lineup, illustrated his displeasure by taking himself out of Sunday's 16-10 win over the New York Giants, according to multiple media reports.

Brooks played only the first two-plus series in Sunday's game against the Giants.
Brooks did not play in the second half and played only the first two-plus series. He confirmed after the game that he is healthy.

"We're working through something," Niners coach Jim Harbaugh said.

At his locker after the game, Brooks declined to comment on his situation.

"I'm not taking questions today," he said. "Maybe later in the week. ... Yeah, we're working through something."

Brooks started over Smith on Sunday but saw much of his playing time split. Also getting plays in the nickel package was Aaron Lynch.
Browns OLB Jabaal Sheard left Sunday's Week 11 game with an ankle injury.
Saints FS Rafael Bush has been diagnosed with a fractured tibia.
Saints CB Keenan Lewis (knee) was limited to 11 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

Titans LT Taylor Lewan left Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Eagles in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury.

Bengals RT Andre Smith (arm) is done for the day in Week 12.
He suffered a left arm injury in the first quarter, which FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo later reported is believed to be a torn triceps Newhouse was inserted back into the lineup when Andre Smith left for good after eight snaps, and he responded with his third consecutive grade in the red.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans could enter Sunday's game at Houston without either of their starting offensive tackles.

Neither Taylor Lewan nor Michael Oher has practiced all week. Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt says both will be game-time decisions.

If Lewan and Oher are unable to play, backups Will Svitek and Byron Stingily would get the call. Tennessee already is without starting center Brian Schwenke, who was placed on injured reserve this week with a knee injury.

On defense, the Titans ruled out linebacker Kamerion Wimbley with a hamstring injury.

Cardinals LT Jared Veldheer suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's loss to the Falcons, but coach Bruce Arians is "hopeful" he'll be available for Week 14.
Jaguars RT Austin Pasztor tore his hamstring in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Giants.
Bengals placed LB Jayson DiManche (broken forearm) on injured reserve, ending his season.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- By the end of Sunday's loss to the Jaguars, the New York Giants were down to their fourth-string right tackle. This is not an ideal situation.

Starting right tackle Justin Pugh was inactive for the second week in a row with a quad injury, so Geoff Schwartz subbed for him as the starting right tackle. But Schwartz sprained his ankle in the first quarter and had to leave the game. He was replaced by longtime Giants backup lineman James Brewer, who suffered a concussion in the fourth quarter and had to come out of the game as well.

So the Giants, who had only seven offensive linemen active for the game, had to move right guard John Jerry out to right tackle and replace him with Dallas Reynolds at right guard.

Bucs DT Gerald McCoy exited Week 14 against the Lions with a right knee injury.

Bucs WLB Lavonte David exited Week 14 against the Lions with an apparent head injury.
David took a knee to the back of the head late in the third quarter that left him on the turf for several minutes.

Updating a previous item, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Antonio Cromartie's injury is not an Achilles injury.

GM Steve Keim said Antonio Cromartie is believed to have injured a peroneal tendon in his ankle during Sunday's win over the Chiefs.
Ike Taylor says he took himself out of Sunday's Week 14 win at Cincy because of a knee contusion.
