Injury Expectations | Midweek Update | Week 9 - Footballguys

A review of the early week practice participation reports


***Melvin Gordon III was participating in individual drills on Wednesday. There's no official word on his status this week. Expect the team to see how Gordon responded to Wednesday's workout and decide whether he's ready to continue practicing. If he's doing as much or more by the end of the week, he should be able to see a reasonable workload this week.

***Dalvin Cook managed a limited Wednesday practice after saying he didn't want "to do anything stupid" on Monday. We're back to where Cook was two weeks ago when he tested his hamstring in an early week practice. If Cook is cleared to do more than rehab later this week, we may see him return. It's still more likely Cook rests this week, increases his conditioning through the bye week, and returns full strength in Week 11.

***A.J. Green minimized his toe injury in the locker room after Sunday's game. Since then, he's been seen in a walking boot in the Cincinnati locker room and has been sent for additional imaging studies. That's not ideal but also isn't clear evidence of a multiple-week injury. There's still a good chance he can play next week but watch for any news of concern through the week.
