Fantasy Football Injury News
Check out the latest news and notes around the NFL.
Christian Watson (hamstring) not practicing Thursday
Christian Watson (hamstring) is not participating at Green Bay’s practice on Thursday.
Watson will miss Green Bay’s practice because of the same hamstring injury that has left him sidelined for the first two weeks of the season. He participated in some drills during Wednesday’s practice, so it’s unclear if the team is trying to play it safe by giving him the day off on Thursday or if his recovery isn’t progressing the way they had hoped. Either way, his status for Week 3 is uncertain as of now, and both Romeo Doubs and Jayden Reed will get more work if Watson is out against the Saints.
David Montgomery (thigh) not practicing Thursday
David Montgomery (thigh) will not be participating in practice on Thursday.
Montgomery is working on recovering from a thigh injury he sustained last week and won’t practice on Thursday. There’s no official word on his status for Week 3 yet, but it looks like he’s trending towards not playing against Atlanta. If that’s the case, rookie Jahmyr Gibbs and Craig Reynolds will both get more work in his absence.
Anthony Richardson (concussion) won’t practice on Thursday
Anthony Richardson (concussion) won’t practice for the Colts on Thursday.
Richardson is still going through the league’s concussion protocols and won’t practice on Thursday. It’s unclear when he’s expected to be back, and it’s looking like he might miss Indianapolis’ game on Sunday. If that’s the case, Gardner Minshew will be the next guy up for the Colts, which is tough for some of their fantasy options in an already-tough matchup against the Ravens.
Joe Burrow (calf) considered day-to-day
Joe Burrow (calf) is considered day-to-day for right now, according to HC Zac Taylor.
Burrow re-aggravated his calf injury during Sunday’s loss to the Ravens, and HC Zac Taylor says that the team is taking his recovery on a day-to-day timeline for the time being. He also noted that the star QB is unlikely to log a full practice on Thursday ahead of their Week 3 matchup against the Rams. Fantasy managers should continue to keep tabs on Burrow’s status for Monday night, as his absence would have major fantasy implications for players like Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, and Joe Mixon.
