QB - WAS - IR
Week 7 Outlook
Washington Football Team QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip) opted to forego surgery and will instead attempt to rehab the hip injury he suffered in Week 1, per Ian Rapoport.
Fitzpatrick's Week 1 injury has thrust Taylor Heinicke into the starting quarterback role for Washington. While many expected Fitzpatrick to undergo season-ending surgery on his hip, the veteran quarterback opted to attempt rehabilitation instead. This means Fitzpatrick could return in November if the hip rehab goes according to the plan of several doctors and medical officials he sought out. For now, it's best only to start Antonio Gibson and Terry McLaurin as Heinicke adjusts to his new starting role.
WFT QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, who is being placed on injured reserve today, is expected to miss 6-8 weeks with the hip injury he suffered in Week 1.
Taylor Heinicke is now the football team’s starting QB. An MRI confirmed that Fitzpatrick suffered a hip subluxation in Week 1 against the Chargers. The good news is that the injury isn’t season-ending. He'll miss at six to eight games while on IR. Taylor Heinicke will face the Giants on Thursday Night Football in Week 2. In the meantime, the concern turns to the fantasy production of Antonio Gibson and Terry McLaurin. That’s something we will watch closely Thursday night and into the coming weeks.
