Monday Injury Rounds: Week 15

Thoughts on Week 14 injuries to Carson Wentz, Kelvin Benjamin, and others, with updates on Aaron Rodgers, Zach Ertz, Robert Woods, 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

Carson Wentz | Left ACL tear (suspected) | Awaiting information

Wentz suffered a left knee injury and was quickly ruled out. Not long after, Adam Schefter reported the team had concern for a torn ACL. Though the timeline was simple and straightforward, the video was decidedly not. Almost always, we see clear evidence of a non-contact injury with a planted foot and the toes pointed outward and a rotational mechanism stressing the knee. It's rare to see an airborne injury to the ACL.

Unfortunately, the physical exam is rarely misleading with ACL injuries. Wentz will have an MRI on Monday to look for associated injuries. Also, unfortunately, Wentz may not have an isolated ACL injury. While the video replays didn't show a clear ACL mechanism, video of Wentz walking off the field seems to show some laxity on the outside of his left knee. That could mean an associated LCL injury. If that's severe enough to require reconstruction, it's a concern. While an isolated ACL injury could be rehabbed quickly enough to give Wentz a chance to return by Week 1 in 2018, concurrent LCL reconstruction and rehab will require a longer rehab -- possibly 9-12 months -- and definitely put the start of 2018 in doubt. It would also raise the possibility of other injuries to the back outside part of the knee and those complicate rehab.

I'll update with more after the results of Wentz's MRI are reported.

Sunday Night Update: Ian Rapoport tweeted the "Eagles believe Wentz injured his ACL but initial tests don't definitively show a complete tear." I sincerely hope we learn that Wentz has a stable knee and can return much more quickly than expected. But Rapoport's tweet doesn't make much sense. The Eagles wouldn't be suspicious of an ACL injury on exam if Wentz's knee was stable. So, whether Wentz has a partial tear or not -- and I'm not aware of any manual exam that can reliably tell the difference -- an unstable knee with an ACL injury requires surgery.

Alvin Kamara | Concussion | Day-to-Day
Tevin Coleman | Concussion | Day-to-Day
Joe Mixon | Concussion | Day-to-Day

Kamara and Coleman left the Thursday night game with concussions. They have the benefit of an extra three days to successfully progress through the return-to-play protocol. We'll have a good idea of their Week 15 status on Wednesday. Joe Mixon did not realistically have a chance to play in Week 14 after his Monday night concussion. He did not practice last week and will need to be cleared for individual work on Wednesday to be considered likely to play this week.

Marcus Mariota | left knee injury | Day-to-Day

Mariota had his left leg turned around awkwardly while sliding at the end of a run. He did not leave the game and told reporters after the game he did not believe his injury was serious. There was no obvious mechanism of injury but the slow twist about the knee can sometimes cause meniscus damage. Mariota's comments are reassuring but watch for news of an MRI on Monday.

Kelvin Benjamin | Aggravated meniscus injury | Awaiting Information

Benjamin chose to rest after suffering a meniscus injury rather than pursuing surgical intervention. After a full week of practice without recurrent pain or swelling, Benjamin looked ready to return. After a good start to his Week 14 return, Benjamin aggravated his knee injury on the deep snow-covered field in Buffalo. He tried to return but was too hobbled to continue. If Benjamin feels okay this week, he could return this season. More likely, he'll choose not to risk further injury and have his meniscus addressed surgically soon.

Others of Note: Greg Olsen returned after reportedly rolling his right foot/ankle. Amari Cooper aggravated a high ankle sprain that hadn't fully healed and could miss 3-4 weeks. Mike Davis injured his ribs and will undergo further evaluation on Monday. Josh McCown fractured his left hand and will likely miss the rest of the season. Tom Savage and Nathan Peterman suffered concussions and are day-to-day.


FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENTS

Aaron Rodgers | Right clavicle fracture | Day-to-Day | Week 15 Return

The Packers have willed their way to a 7-6 record and Rodgers is eligible to return next week. If an imaging study shows appropriate healing, Rodgers will be cleared for contact. There will be no conditioning concerns and Rodgers has been throwing without difficulty for nearly a month. While there are no guarantees the imaging study will be reassuring, it looks probable Rodgers will return this week.

Zach Ertz | Concussion | Day-to-Day | Week 15+ Return

Ertz continued to experience a "dull headache" after returning to individual drills on Thursday and the Eagles were not comfortable sending him for clearance. While it was reassuring to see Ertz cleared for individual drills, the continued symptoms a week after sustaining the concussion are now concerning. Hopefully, Ertz will be cleared to do more by mid-week. If not, this could stretch into a multiple-week absence.

Robert Woods | Left shoulder injury | Day-to-Day | Week 15 Return

Woods was able to return to limited practices last week and multiple reports suggest he'll increase his practice work. If he's cleared for contact early this week, he should be able to play without limitation in Week 15. He should have no conditioning concerns and be ready for his pre-injury workload.

Others of Note: Jordan Reed has yet to return to practice and may consider injured reserve with Washington well out of playoff contention. Tyrod Taylor continues to recover from a patellar tendon contusion. Adrian Peterson has yet to return to practice with a neck injury.
