Monday Injury Rounds: Week 13

Thoughts on Week 11 injuries to Greg Olsen, C.J. Beathard, Paxton Lynch, and others, with updates on Aaron Rodgers, David Johnson, Devonta Freeman, and more

NOTE: This column is a living document through Tuesday morning. I'll be updating as needed after team press conferences, imaging reports, Monday Night Football injuries, etc. Major changes to the content will be noted in red. 

Scroll to the bottom of this article for a quick look table of the week's most pressing injury situations and a review of players on injured reserve / PUP / NFI.


Footballguys will have close and detailed coverage of all injuries this season. Here's a look at my expected schedule. I will do my best to stick to this. Work and family responsibilities may sometimes cause brief delays.

Monday Injury Rounds: Posted Sunday night, updated through Tuesday AM. Detailed analysis of the week's injuries with table for quick review. Offensive injuries will be live Sunday night. Critical defensive and offensive line injuries will be added throughout the day on Monday. I'll be updating with news and analysis through Tuesday.

Wednesday and Thursday Injury Expectations: Posted late Wednesday and Thursday evening. Analysis of the practice participation report with a table including my projection of each injured player's likely game status. Will include discussion of any major breaking injury news.

Sunday Gameday Expectations: Posted by Saturday afternoon, updated through Sunday morning inactives. Will include individual player blurbs with detailed thoughts on the week's injury news and my speculation on player availability and limitations. Will include table highlighting each day's practice participation, official game status, and my availability expectation.

I'll also be contributing to our waiver wire podcast (Tuesday release), our live Sunday morning pregame show (10 ET Sunday on YouTube), and plan at least one weekly Periscope Q&A (shortly before Monday Night Football) with additional shows if/when possible. As always, I will be retweeting key pieces of news and my own reaction and analysis, so make sure you're following @JeneBramel and checking my timeline on Twitter throughout the week.


INJURY ROUNDS

Greg Olsen | Foot soreness | Week-to-Week

Olsen told reporters he felt soreness in his surgically-repaired foot in the first half, tried to warm up without success after halftime, and was ultimately shut down for the day. After the game, Ron Rivera told reporters x-rays on Olsen's foot were negative. Olsen said he felt capable of coming back but wasn't "quite exactly where it needed to be to play in the NFL." Though fixed with a surgical screw, Olsen's bone hasn't yet fully healed and won't be fully healed for many weeks. Still, players are frequently cleared to play within 12 weeks of this surgery. Soreness is expected but caution is still required. The Panthers will send Olsen for an MRI but don't expect to find a season-ending setback. Expect Olsen to be limited in practice this week. Carolina has already shown caution with Olsen and will continue to do so. There's a chance Olsen will play in Week 13 but expect him to be a game-time decision and limited if active.

***Monday Update: Olsen will have his foot imaged and re-examined by his surgeon today. There's still optimism Olsen will return quickly but the results of today's evaluation will provide more information. I'll update when more is reported.

***Monday Update: Olsen's re-evaluation was reassuring. Ian Rapoport tweeted Olsen's foot was "deemed okay." The Panthers have yet to say whether Olsen will practice this week.

Matthew Stafford | Right low ankle sprain | Day-to-Day | Week 13 Return

Stafford returned to the game after rolling his right ankle. He may be limited in practice this week but Stafford routinely plays through pain. Barring a surprise, expect Stafford to start in Week 13.

C.J. Beathard | Left Knee contusion / HIp strain | DAy-to-Day

Video review suggests Beathard suffered a hyperextension of his left knee but the mechanism was obscured at the moment of impact. Beathard told reporters he didn't think he injured any knee ligaments and Kyle Shanahan described the injury as a bruise. The 49ers plan to image Beathard's knee on Monday. While an ACL injury is unlikely, it's too soon to rule out a multiple week injury. I'll update with more after Beathard's MRI results are reported.

Paxton Lynch | Right ankle injury | Awaiting Information

Though it's been described as an ankle injury, Lynch's specific injury remains unclear. Lynch came up hobbling after a rollout pass and did not want to bear weight on his right leg. It wasn't an obvious mechanism for an Achilles injury, but the non-contact nature of his injury is concerning. Lynch left the locker room in a walking boot, but there has been no indication of a long-term injury from the Broncos and Lynch told reporters he was hopeful to play in Week 13. It's also possible something occurred on the play before Lynch left the game but the camera moved away from Lynch before any injury was shown. Lynch will likely have an MRI on Monday to better define his injury.

***Monday Update: Lynch reportedly has a high ankle sprain. I'll confirm with All-22 replays later this week but it's likely the injury occurred before the final play. Lynch is expected to be out 2-4 weeks.

Mike Williams | Knee contusion | Week-to-Week | Week 14+ Return

The Chargers were worried about Williams' knee ligaments but his MRI was reassuring. Ian Rapoport reported Williams injury as a bone bruise that would keep him out in Week 13. It's not expected to be a season-ending injury but Los Angeles will know more after observing and rehabbing Williams through this week.

Others of Note: Damien Williams injury was suspicious for a shoulder dislocation but he remained in pain after the medical staff attended to him on the field. He left the locker room in a sling and will likely miss multiple weeks. ***Monday Update: Ian Rapoport and Adam Schefter both tweeted Williams dislocated his shoulder, will have an MRI on Monday, and is likely to miss at least 2-3 weeks. Doug Martin, Amari Cooper, Coby Fleener, Ryan Kelly, Zack Martin, Josh Sitton, Telvin Smith, and Desmond Trufant each suffered concussions on Sunday and should be considered day-to-day as they recover and progress through the return-to-play protocol.

***Monday Update: Multiple reports note Cooper also suffered an ankle sprain. Television replays of Cooper's injury are suspicious for a high ankle sprain. Rehabbing a concussion and high ankle sprain is a tough ask in one week. Expect Cooper to miss this week's game.


FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENTS

Aaron Rodgers | Right clavicle fracture | Week 15 Return

Rodgers was shown throwing on camera during the Sunday night football television broadcast. Said to be throwing the ball over 50 yards, Rodgers' throwing motion looked fluid and unrestricted. That's reassuring and not unexpected. Though the location and specifics of Rodgers' fracture played a role in his decision to have surgery, the plate fixation of his broken collarbone stabilized his injury a little sooner than without surgery. Rodgers looks to be throwing without pain six weeks after his injury. If imaging studies in the next 1-2 weeks show enough healing to safely clear Rodgers for contact, he'll be ready to return when first eligible in Week 15.

David Johnson | Wrist fracture / dislocation | Week-to-Week

Bruce Arians continues to throw cold water on the possible return of Johnson (and quarterback Carson Palmer). Early last week, Arians told reporters that none of the players currently on injured reserve were making sufficient progress to be designated to return. While regaining appropriate strength and range of motion can be difficult to project following surgical fixation of wrist injuries, there are still five weeks left in the regular season and it's too soon to declare a player who's been out of a cast for just one week incapable of returning. The trend is clearly concerning for Johnson but wait until Arizona confirms Johnson is out for the season before reacting to Arians' comments. The Cardinals improved to 5-6 last week but remain well back in the playoff race and face a tough test at home against the Rams next week.

Jameis Winston | Right AC sprain / Deltoid contusion | Week-to-Week | Week 13+ Return

Winston continues to make progress in his recovery from a frequently aggravated Week 6 shoulder sprain. Winston had an orthobiologic injection to relieve inflammation and (hopefully) speed healing 2-3 weeks ago. Ian Rapoport reported Sunday morning that Winston's return is "coming" and likely soon. It's now been nearly a month since the Buccaneers shut Winston down to heal. The next step in Winston's recovery is gaining clearance to throw. Tampa Bay didn't do that leading up to Week 7, 8, or 9. If Winston is able to throw without pain or limitation in range of motion, clearance for contact will come soon afterward. It's possible Winston will meet those goals in Week 13.

***Monday Update: Dirk Koetter told reporters Winston will be cleared to practice on Wednesday if he has no shoulder soreness after rehab on Monday. If Winston continues to progress without a setback in practice, it's likely he'll play in Week 13.

Devonta Freeman | Concussion | Day-to-Day | Week 13+ Return

After Freeman returned to a limited practice last Thursday, there was optimism about a possible Week 12 return. However, after 2-3 weeks of slow advancement through the return-to-play protocol, it made little sense for the Falcons to accelerate Freeman's progress from individual football-related activity to contact practice to a request for clearance to play in 48 hours. While a Week 12 return was too optimistic, the return to padded individual drills was an important step. That represents the last stage of exercise before a player can be cleared for contact. If Freeman remains without symptoms through the weekend, expect him to continue individual drills early this week in anticipation of a full practice and -- hopefully -- clearance by an independent neurologist to play in Week 13. If Dan Quinn doesn't update Freeman's status on Monday, we'll have a good idea about Atlanta's plans by Thursday afternoon.

Others of Note: Sterling Shepard continued to have migraine symptoms with exercise last week and was unable to play on Thanksgiving. He remains day-to-day. JuJu Smith-Schuster tweeted he'd "be back soon" but it's not yet known whether his hamstring strain will keep him out multiple weeks.
