Who will step up if Jordan Howard is forced to miss some time?

Who will step up if Jordan Howard is forced to miss some time?

Well, friends, it seems we’ve reached injury nirvana. Barely anyone went down this week and those who did have decent outlooks.

You’ll finish this one faster than the Steelers finished caring about Sammie Coates. Let’s take a look at who’s okay, who might be okay, who’s going to miss some time and who you should target as a replacement.

Running Backs

Jordan Howard (CHI): undisclosed ankle/Achilles injury
John Fox is involved, so I wouldn’t count on getting any decent information until Wednesday. There’s certainly a fear of something season-ending when the Achilles’ tendon is involved, but there is some optimism that he’s okay.

Next up: Jeremy Langford, Ka’Deem Carey

I imagine Langford will get the first crack at the job since he was the starter at the beginning of the season, but it’s also possible Carey will be involved in a timeshare. Neither looks like a league-winner, but they could do the job if you’re desperate.

Wide Receivers

Larry Fitzgerald (ARI): undisclosed knee injury
Fitzgerald scheduled an MRI for Monday. He might miss some practice time this week but should be ready to play.

Next up: Michael Floyd, J.J. Nelson, John Brown

Fitzgerald got 18 targets on Sunday, which was more than Floyd, Nelson and Brown combined. No one is going to step in and get targeted that much, but all three would see a boost if Fitzgerald sits.

Reexaminations

Quarterbacks

Tony Romo (DAL)
Romo will return in Week 11, but Dak Prescott will be the starter.

Running Backs

Tevin Coleman (ATL)
Coleman should be back at practice this week.

Dion Lewis (NE)
Lewis was inactive Sunday night, but he is supposedly fully healthy.

Thomas Rawls (SEA)
Rawls plans to practice and is on track to play in Week 11.

Wide Receivers

Sammy Watkins (BUF)
Watkins is eligible to return to practice but won’t be participating just yet.

Victor Cruz (NYG)
It looks like Cruz won’t be playing Monday night.
