Welcome to the dreaded injury report. Professional football is a violent game, and your fantasy players are going to miss time because of it. Hopefully, you don’t have many names on this list.

Danny Amendola (WR – NE)
The delicate flower that is Danny Amendola couldn’t make it a full week without finding his way onto the injury report. Amendola was diagnosed with a concussion and will spend this week going through the protocol. Given that he will have had an extra three days off, there’s a better chance he’ll be ready to go in New Orleans, but obviously he will have to clear all of the steps before he can play. Chris Hogan is once again the direct beneficiary.

Danny Woodhead (RB – BAL)
We start with a pair of Dannys, neither of whom we should be surprised to see on this list. Woodhead went down on a reception attempt and immediately took himself out of the game with a hamstring injury. It’s still unclear how much time he will miss, but we can safely rule him out for at least Week 2, and probably longer. Buck Allen actually led the Ravens in carries and he should be the 1b to Terrance West’s 1a going forward.

David Johnson (RB – ARI)
This one hurts. DJ left the game with a sprained wrist of currently unknown severity. He could miss a few weeks, or he could wind up on IR. More should be known in the next few days. There is no clear backup. Andre Ellington and Kerwynn Williams will form a committee and if week one was any indication, this team is lost without David Johnson. Carson Palmer looks all sorts of done. Larry Fitzgerald cannot carry this team by himself. This is a huge loss for everyone.

Allen Robinson (WR – JAX)
ARob tore his ACL on Sunday. He will obviously miss the season. This brings Allen Hurns back into our lives. It also may open up the door for Keelan Cole to make a splash. With Blake Bortles under center, Leonard Fournette is the entire offense. There’s not much here for fantasy.

Kevin White (WR – CHI)
Oh, Kevin White is hurt? I’m shocked. I saw a great tweet on Kevin White: “It’s too bad that Kevin White can’t stay healthy enough to prove that he was never a great prospect in the first place.” His fractured scapula will end his season. The Bears are running out of wide receivers. Josh Bellamy appears to be next in line. It could be Deonte Thompson. But this is another situation to avoid.
