Injuries are an unfortunate reality of NFL life, but everyone who follows the league — fantasy football players, sports bettors, and fans of teams — wants the latest health information. In that vein, we’re tracking every NFL injury ahead of Week 13.

Let’s review the injury report for every game on the NFL’s Week 13 schedule. Remember, you can always stay updated on the latest injury buzz around the league with PFN’s NFL and Fantasy News Tracker.

NFL Week 13 Injury Tracker

Seattle Seahawks at Dallas Cowboys (TNF)

  • Seahawks: RB Kenneth Walker III, DOUBTFUL (oblique); WR Dee Eskridge, QUESTIONABLE (ribs); WR Dareke Young, DOUBTFUL (abdomen); TE Will Dissly, QUESTIONABLE (hip); G Phil Haynes, OUT (toe); DT Leonard Williams, QUESTIONABLE (ankle)
  • Cowboys: No injuries of note

Seahawks: Walker will likely miss his second straight game with an oblique injury after being listed with a “doubtful” designation. Second-round rookie Zach Charbonnet played 88% of Seattle’s offensive snaps and took 18 touches for 58 yards against the San Francisco 49ers last week with Walker sidelined.

Cowboys: Every Dallas player fully practiced on Wednesday and will be available for Thursday night.

Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans

  • Colts: RB Jonathan Taylor (thumb); WR Isaiah McKenzie (toe); DT DeForest Buckner (shoulder); CB JuJu Brents (quad)
  • Titans: QB Will Levis (ankle); WR Treylon Burks (concussion); G Daniel Brunskill (knee); LB Luke Gifford (shin)

ColtsTaylor underwent thumb surgery Wednesday and is expected to be sidelined for two to three weeks. Indy hopes he can return in Week 15 or 16, but Zack Moss will handle the Colts’ backfield until then.

McKenzie and Brents also failed to practice today, while Buckner was limited.

Titans: Levis appeared to be laboring in video from today’s practice. If he misses any time, Ryan Tannehill will take over under center.

Meanwhile, Burks was back for a limited practice after missing Tennessee’s last three games with a brain injury. The former first-round WR was sidelined for three other contests earlier this year while dealing with a knee issue.

Los Angeles Chargers at New England Patriots

  • Chargers: WR Keenan Allen (quadriceps); TE Nick Vannett (concussion); OT Rashawn Slater (back); OT Trey Pipkins (wrist); OL Zack Bailey (back); S JT Woods (illness)
  • Patriots: RB Ezekiel Elliott (thigh); RB Ty Montgomery (illness); WR Demario Douglas (concussion); WR Kayshon Boutte (shoulder); OT Trent Brown (ankle/chest); G Sidy Sow (ankle); C David Andrews (foot); DL Deatrich Wise Jr. (shoulder); LB Ja’Whaun Bentley (hamstring); LB Chris Board (back); ST Matthew Slater (ankle)

Chargers: Allen had been on Los Angeles’ injury report for the past two weeks with a shoulder issue, but now he’s dealing with a quadriceps injury. He didn’t practice on Wednesday, meaning we’ll need to keep an eye on his participation throughout the week.

First-round rookie Quentin Johnston has struggled mightily this year, but he’ll be in line for a significant target share against New England if Allen is sidelined.

Patriots: Douglas was New England’s only player who couldn’t practice due to an injury on Wednesday. The sixth-round rookie — the Pats’ leading receiver — said after Week 12 that he didn’t suffer a concussion, but Douglas must have developed symptoms.

Detroit Lions at New Orleans Saints

  • Lions: RB David Montgomery (foot); G Jonah Jackson (ankle/wrist); LB Alex Anzalone (hand); S Tracy Walker (shoulder)
  • Saints: RB Kendre Miller (ankle); WR Chris Olave (concussion); WR Rashid Shaheed (thigh); C Erik McCoy (shoulder); EDGE Cameron Jordan (ankle); LB Pete Werner (shoulder/oblique); S Marcus Maye (shoulder); K Blake Grupe (right groin)

Lions: Montgomery came up hobbling after scoring a touchdown in Week 12 but remained in Detroit’s eventual loss to the Green Bay Packers. He was limited on Wednesday, so we’ll need to keep watching his participation throughout the week. Craig Reynolds will pick up more work behind Jahmyr Gibbs if Montgomery sits.

Anzalone failed to practice today and is expected to miss multiple games after suffering a hand injury against the Packers. Fellow Lions LBs Derrick Barnes, Jack Campbell, and Malcolm Rodriguez will take on added responsibilities.

Saints: New Orleans is dealing with serious wide receiver problems. Olave was a limited practice participant on Wednesday but will need to clear the NFL’s concussion protocol in order to play against the Lions. Shaheed was a DNP and isn’t expected to suit up on Sunday. Expect A.T. Perry and Lynn Bowden to work as the Saints’ top two WRs.

The concerns don’t stop on the defensive side of the ball. One starter at each level — Jordan, Werner, and Maye — failed to practice today.

Atlanta Falcons at New York Jets

  • Falcons: WR Mack Hollins (ankle); OT Jake Matthews (hip); LB Nate Landman (thigh)
  • Jets: QB Aaron Rodgers (Achilles); RB Breece Hall (hamstring); RB Israel Abanikanda (illness); OT Mekhi Becton (ankle); OT Billy Turner (finger); OL Wes Schweitzer (calf); EDGE Will McDonald (shoulder); CB Michael Carter II (hamstring); CB Justin Hardee (hamstring)

FalconsLandman was the only injured Falcon who failed to practice today. The 2022 undrafted free agent has been one of this season’s breakout defenders, and Atlanta doesn’t want to lose him, even against a woeful New York offense.

Jets: Gang Green made news on Wednesday by designating Rodgers to return from injured reserve (IR). Head coach Robert Saleh cautioned that opening Rodgers’ 21-day return window wasn’t as much about preparing the veteran QB as it was “a progression in his rehab.” It remains unclear if Rodgers will play if New York is clearly out of the playoff race by the time he’s ready.

Hall was limited today, but there’s no indication he’s in danger of missing time. Abanikanda was the only Jet who missed practice on Wednesday.

Arizona Cardinals at Pittsburgh Steelers

  • Cardinals: WR Marquise Brown (heel); WR Michael Wilson (shoulder); TE Trey McBride (groin); OL Elijah Wilkinson (neck); DT Kevin Strong (knee); CB Antonio Hamilton (groin); CB Starling Thomas (ankle); S Jalen Thompson (ribs); S Joey Blount (knee)
  • Steelers: WR Calvin Austin (ankle)

CardinalsKyler Murray’s pass-catching options are undoubtedly banged up, as none of Brown, Wilson, or McBride practiced on Wednesday.

Wilson missed last week’s game, while Brown was listed as questionable but ultimately suited up and played 62 snaps. McBride also saw his regular action, so it’s possible both players were simply receiving rest today.

Steelers: Pittsburgh rested several veterans on Wednesday, but Austin was the only player not practicing due to injury. Safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, who missed the past month with a hamstring issue, was back on the field for a full practice.

Miami Dolphins at Washington Commanders

  • Dolphins: RB Raheem Mostert (ankle/knee); RB De’Von Achane (knee); RB Chris Brooks (knee); FB Alec Ingold (foot/ankle); WR Tyreek Hill (ankle); WR Chase Claypool (knee); TE Durham Smythe (ankle); OT Terron Armstead (quad/knee); OT Kendall Lamm (back); G Robert Hunt (hamstring); G Robert Jones (knee); C Connor Williams (illness); EDGE Bradley Chubb (knee); S Jevon Holland (knee); DB Elijah Campbell (shoulder); LS Blake Ferguson (ankle)
  • Commanders: FB Alex Armah (hamstring); C Tyler Larsen (knee); EDGE James Smith-Williams (hamstring); CB Emmanuel Forbes (elbow)

DolphinsMiami’s injury report is almost comically long, so we’ll focus on the four players who failed to practice to begin the week: Mostert, Hill, Lamm, and Holland.

Mostert and Hill are consistently given days off early in the week, so it’s probably not worth getting concerned about their Week 13 availability just yet. Still, Hill did roll his ankle against the Jets on Black Friday, so his participation on Thursday will be critical.

Lamm won’t be starting, assuming Armstead is healthy, while Holland’s knee injury isn’t considered serious.

For more on Miami, check out Adam Beasley’s Wednesday report from Dolphins practice.

Commanders: Washington is relatively healthy entering Week 13. Armah, Smith-Williams, and Forbes all missed last week’s game. Larsen played every snap, so his Wednesday DNP was likely rest-related.

Denver Broncos at Houston Texans

  • Broncos: WR Jerry Jeudy (groin); WR Marvin Mims Jr. (hamstring); WR Brandon Johnson (hamstring); TE Greg Dulcich (hamstring); K Wil Lutz (right hip)
  • Texans: WR Tank Dell (calf); WR Noah Brown (knee); TE Dalton Schultz (hamstring); OT Laremy Tunsil (knee); OT George Fant (hip); DT Sheldon Rankins (elbow); LB Jake Hansen (hamstring/hand); S Jimmie Ward (hamstring)

Broncos: Jeudy didn’t practice today, but head coach Sean Payton said the fourth-year wideout is “fine” and suggested Jeudy will practice on Thursday.

Mims was listed as limited on Wednesday. Johnson and Dulcich are still on IR, but the Broncos opened their 21-day return windows.

Texans: Although Dell didn’t practice today, his calf injury is considered minor, and he’s expected to play against Denver on Sunday. Brown is trending toward returning this week, but Schultz was a DNP on Wednesday, so his participation will be worth watching.

Other Texans who failed to practice today included Tunsil, Fant, Rankins, and Ward.

Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

  • Panthers: WR Laviska Shenault (ankle); TE Hayden Hurst (concussion); TE Tommy Tremble (hip); G Chandler Zavala (knee); G Cade Mays (ankle); EDGE Yetur Gross-Matos (hamstring); EDGE D.J. Johnson (elbow); EDGE Marquis Haynes (back); CB Jaycee Horn (hamstring); S Vonn Bell (shoulder); S Jeremy Chinn (quadriceps)
  • Buccaneers: EDGE YaYa Diaby (ankle); DT Mike Greene (calf); LB Lavonte David (groin); LB Devin White (foot); LB SirVoccea Dennis (illness); CB Carlton Davis (ankle); CB Jamel Dean (ankle/foot)

PanthersHurst has missed two games with a concussion, while Zavala, Johnson, and Bell all left Sunday’s game with injuries. That group, plus Shenault, Haynes, and Tremble, failed to practice on Wednesday. Zavala is a candidate for IR and could miss the rest of the 2023 season.

Buccaneers: Baker Mayfield injured his ankle on a QB sneak attempt in Week 12 and was sore after Tampa Bay’s loss to the Colts, but he was a full practice participant on Wednesday and is expected to start against the Panthers.

David and Dean missed last Sunday’s game and did not practice today. Greene and Dennis also sat out Wednesday’s practice, while Diaby, White, and Davis were limited.

Cleveland Browns at Los Angeles Rams

  • Browns: QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson (concussion); RB Kareem Hunt (groin); WR Marquise Goodwin (concussion); G Wyatt Teller (calf); EDGE Myles Garrett (shoulder); CB Denzel Ward (shoulder); S Juan Thornhill (calf)
  • Rams: DT Larrell Murchison (knee); S Quentin Lake (hamstring)

Browns: DTR didn’t practice today, while Cleveland also elevated Joe Flacco into its QB2 role ahead of P.J. Walker. If Thompson-Robinson can’t clear the NFL’s concussion protocol, Flacco will start against Los Angeles.

Hunt sat out of Wednesday’s session, too. He played just 26% of the Browns’ offensive snaps on Sunday and may have been limited by a groin issue. Pierre Strong Jr. will see more work behind Jerome Ford if Hunt misses game action.

Garrett also failed to practice today, but head coach Kevin Steanski suggested the All-Pro pass rusher should be able to suit up this week.

Rams: Cooper Kupp (ankle) and Puka Nacua (shoulder) practiced on Wednesday, so Matthew Stafford should have both of his top receivers available against the Browns. Lake was the only Ram not practicing.

San Francisco 49ers at Philadelphia Eagles

  • 49ers: RB Jordan Mason (hamstring); WR Ray-Ray McCloud (ribs); G Spencer Burford (knee); DT Arik Armstead (foot)
  • Eagles: RB D’Andre Swift (ankle); WR A.J. Brown (thigh); WR DeVonta Smith (knee); WR Julio Jones (knee) TE Dallas Goedert (forearm); TE Grant Calcaterra (ankle); OT Lane Johnson (groin); LB Zach Cunningham (hamstring); DT Fletcher Cox (groin); DT Jordan Davis (hamstring); DT Milton Williams (concussion); S Justin Evans (knee)

49ersArmstead didn’t practice on Wednesday, which is incredibly concerning heading into a critical NFC matchup against Philadelphia. We’ll need to monitor his practice participation throughout the week. Javon Kinlaw will see more snaps on Sunday if Armstead can’t suit up.

Mason and McCloud also sat out today’s practice. Burford missed Week 12 but was limited on Wednesday.

MORE: NFL Head Coaching Candidates

Eagles: Swift and Brown were listed on Philadelphia’s injury report entering Week 12 but ultimately had no issues suiting up against the Buffalo Bills.

Brown isn’t the only Eagles wideout dealing with an injury, but none of Philly’s WRs missed practice on Wednesday. Goedert is pushing to return this week but failed to practice today.

Cox also sat out practice after suffering a groin injury on Sunday. Cunningham’s hamstring issue has led the Eagles to explore a potential Shaquille Leonard addition.

Kansas City Chiefs at Green Bay Packers (SNF)

  • Chiefs: RB Jerick McKinnon (groin); LB Nick Bolton (wrist)
  • Packers: RB Aaron Jones (knee); RB AJ Dillon (groin); WR Jayden Reed (chest); TE Josiah Deguara (hip); LB De’Vondre Campbell (neck); EDGE Rashan Gary (shoulder); DT Kenny Clark (shoulder); CB Jaire Alexander (shoulder); CB Eric Stokes (hamstring); CB Robert Rochell (calf); S Rudy Ford (biceps)

ChiefsMcKinnon missed Sunday’s game and was the only Chief who didn’t practice today. Bolton got in a limited session as he works his way back from IR.

Packers: Jones still isn’t practicing after missing Green Bay’s Thanksgiving Day win over the Lions, while Dillon was also a Wednesday DNP. Dillon was limited during last week’s practices but ultimately handled  17 touches in Week 12. Patrick Taylor is the only other RB on the Packers’ active roster.

Reed didn’t practice today, either. He injured his chest during last Thursday’s practice but was a full Friday participant and played against Detroit.

Cincinnati Bengals at Jacksonville Jaguars (MNF)

Taylor Swift Is Shown Chugging a Beer on the Jumbotron at Super Bowl 58

Published

on

By


Global superstar Taylor Swift made it to the big game to support her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce. In the second quarter, it was evident that she was having a good time at the Super Bowl after taking a 12-hour flight from Tokyo the night prior.

Taylor Swift Seen Chugging Beer at Super Bowl

Swift’s attendance has been highly anticipated, as many fans questioned whether she would be able to make it to the big game since she had been in Japan until Saturday for her Eras Tour.

Sure enough, she made it to the Super Bowl and was seen making a grand entrance alongside Blake Lively and Ice Spice.

Swift made it back to the States with plenty of time to make it to Allegiant Stadium to support Kelce. After a leg of her Eras Tour, where she performed several nights in Japan, the singer appeared to let loose.

In a box full of friends, Swift was shown chugging a beer with Ashley Avignone. She was shown on the jumbotron and slammed her cup down after she finished her beer.

There was a mix of cheers and boos as Swift was shown on the big screen, and a long pass to Mecole Hardman was the only highlight of the first half for Swift and her friends. The 49ers led the Chiefs, 10-0, late in the second quarter.

On social media, Swift garnered plenty of support from NFL fans.

If you’re hating on her you can kick rocks man she’s the best,” one user posted on X

“The one thing I learned this season is that she is actually fun,” another said. 

“Booing Taylor Swift chugging a beer is so soft. She’s just one of us now and I respect it ,” another posted. 

At the time of the beer chugging, Kelce, Taylor Swift’s boyfriend, has had one catch for a single yard. It came on the first possession, which ended up being a three-and-out. The Kansas City Chiefs hadn’t done much otherwise.

They did have a deep pass play to Hardman, which put them in the red zone, but Isiah Pacheco fumbled on the very next play — one that Kelce was surprisingly on the sideline for.

Swift and Kelce have garnered much media attention as their romance has taken off throughout this NFL season.

Swift was able to support her boyfriend at many of his games throughout the final stretch of the season, as her Eras Tour was on a break. But starting on Feb. 7, she went back on the road.

Despite performing in Tokyo the night before the Super Bowl, she was able to make it in time to support her boyfriend due to the time difference and is having a good time doing so.

What Happened to the 49ers Linebacker?

Published

on

By


The San Francisco 49ers sustained a massive blow during the second quarter of Super Bowl 58, as linebacker Dre Greenlaw left the game on a medical cart.

CBS Sports confirmed that the veteran Greenlaw suffered an Achilles tear, ruling him out for the rest of the game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

What Happened to Dre Greenlaw?

The outside linebacker, who had already been battling past injuries to his hamstrings and calves, left with what appeared to be a leg injury.

And somehow, his left leg looked like it buckled as he tried to trot onto the field with the Niners’ defense.

Greenlaw clutched his left leg in agony before being helped off the field.

CBS Sports sideline reporter Evan Washburn reported that the outside linebacker left with what was ruled as a lower leg injury. He was later determined to sustain an Achilles injury.

Greenlaw was declared out for the rest of the game.

Greenlaw Carted Off in Passenger Seat

Even more noticeable was where Greenlaw sat on the cart.

He ended up leaving not in the back of the medical vehicle but ended up riding shotgun with his leg injury.

One would think that with an injury like an Achilles ailment, medical officials would try to make the player as comfortable as possible before they leave. It wasn’t the case here.

Regardless, Greenlaw was replaced by Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles for the rest of the first half. Greenlaw became the most significant injury of the game.

NFL World Reacts to Epic Super Bowl Intro From CBS

Published

on

By


Super Bowl 58 is here and it’s going to be exciting. The San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs are facing off in the final game of 2023.

CBS is broadcasting the game and the opening was nothing short of amazing. How is the NFL world reacting to the electric Super Bowl-opening video?

Epic CBS Super Bowl Intro Garners Reaction From NFL World

The video, which spanned four minutes and 19 seconds, featured players from both teams talking about the big game and what it means to them. It also featured their families talking about their journeys to this point.

“Amazing intro! Reminds me of my dad! Bravo on the intro!,” one NFL fan said on X (formerly known as Twitter)

Additionally, Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” played in the background, giving it a near-movie feel. “This was incredible.,” another person said on X. “And so, the @49ers and @Chiefs face that final curtain,” CBS Sports said.

The 49ers finished the regular season as the top seed in the NFC with a 12-5 record. After their first-round bye, they defeated both the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions to earn their trip to Las Vegas for the Super Bowl. Both of their victories came in comeback fashion, including an NFC Championship-record 17-point comeback.

The Chiefs, on the other hand, had a more uphill battle. Entering the playoffs as the AFC’s third seed, they finished the regular season with an 11-6 record. In the playoffs, they defeated the Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills, and Baltimore Ravens to punch their ticket.

Super Bowl 58 is a re-match of Super Bowl 54 when the Chiefs defeated the 49ers 31-24. The win was the first in Patrick Mahomes career, as he also won Super Bowl MVP. Four years later, the Chiefs have made three more and won another. For the 49ers, this is their first trip back to the big game since.

The game kicked off at 6:30 p.m. ET with the 49ers receiving the opening kick. In addition to being broadcast on CBS, the game is also being streamed on Paramount+.
