We scour the news around the NFL to bring you what matters most to you and your dynasty team: the most current news on players, both superstars and the relative unknowns, and analysis to decipher the respective situations. These are many of the major stories and not meant to be an exhaustive look at all the recent happenings around the league.
Late in the fourth quarter, James Conner went down with a leg injury. He was replaced by Jaylen Samuels, a swiss-army-knife rookie. Former Chargers team doctor, Dr. David Chao, MD tweeted, “By video, appears to be a high ankle sprain. Hoping for mild but still can hamper him.” Dr. Chao followed that tweet up with, “Hoping/expecting a mild high ankle sprain (but need to wait to see about overnight swelling) with only a short absence. Not all high ankle sprains lead to 6 weeks out” and “The fact that the video clearly showed high ankle injury does not preclude #JamesConner from playing next week. Different levels of severity and his seems to be mild.” Coach Tomlin says it is just a bruise, but we are going with the doctor’s analysis. So, there is optimism that Conner will be back in the lineup soon. In the meantime, consider Samuels a stash in all leagues. Stevan Ridley is a decent speculative play, too.
