Monday Injury Rounds: Week 11 - Footballguys

Reviewing the latest on A.J. Green, Rob Gronkowski, and Chris Carson. Analysis of new injuries to Cooper Kupp and Joe Flacco.

NOTE: During the regular season, 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.

Midweek Injury Expectations: Posted Wednesday night. 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 be contributing to our waiver wire podcast (Tuesday release) and our live Sunday morning pregame show (10 ET Sunday on YouTube). I will also be retweeting key pieces of news and my own reaction and analysis, so make sure you're following me @JeneBramel and checking my timeline on Twitter throughout the week.


INJURY ROUNDS

Cooper Kupp | Left ACL tear | Out for season

The mechanism of Kupp's knee injury was classic for an ACL tear. Sean McVay and Kupp's teammates were uniformly worried about Kupp's status after the game. Though it's the same knee Kupp suffered an MCL sprain in October, the injuries are mostly unrelated. Kupp's Sunday injury would likely have occurred regardless of his previous injury. It is possible that Kupp's MCL injury was aggravated yesterday, as ACL tears sometimes stress the MCL and meniscus, too. Expect the Rams to confirm an ACL tear -- and an end to Kupp's season -- on Monday.

Monday Update: The Rams confirmed Kupp tore his ACL.

Joe Flacco | Hip injury | Week-to-Week | Doubtful Week 11

Baltimore had an eventful bye week. By mid-week, multiple reports had Flacco using crutches to bear weight and visiting specialists to discuss options after a Week 9 hip injury. There were no specifics provided on the injury Flacco played through last week and every possible return timetable was reported -- from season-ending surgery to no games missed. The crutches aren't a good prognostic sign for his Week 11 availability. Monday's team press conference may provide more information.

Others of note:

***James Conner suffered a concussion in Thursday night's game. He'll have the benefit of an extra half-week to progress through the return to play protocol. His Wednesday practice participation will better define his Week 11 status.

***Marvin Jones Jr hyperextended his right knee attempting a catch down the sideline. There were reports he tried to re-enter the game but was held out. I'll update tomorrow with any reports of concern.

Monday Update: Adam Schefter is reporting Jones suffered a bone bruise but no ligament damage. Recovery depends on the location and severity of the bruise. Schefter's tweet notes Jones is "considered day-to-day." That's an excellent sign for a shorter-term injury but it's too soon to expect Jones to play this week.

***DeVante Parker has a left shoulder injury. The injury mechanism wasn't clear but he left the locker room in a sling. The Dolphins have a bye in Week 11 but the most likely possibilities here will likely require more than one week of rehab.

Monday Update: Per Tom Pelissero, Parker was diagnosed with a sprained AC joint and is considered week-to-week. That's arguably a best case scenario and gives him a chance to be ready after the bye week.

Offensive line and defensive notes:

***New Orleans tackle Terron Armstead injured his right shoulder pancaking a Cincinnati defender into the turf and did not return. There was no clear mechanism of injury but Armstead did not return.

***Denzel Perryman suffered a knee injury and will likely miss multiple weeks. Monday Update: Perryman has an LCL sprain and hamstring injury that will require surgery. He will not return this year. Surgery involving that ligament and portion of the knee is tricky. Perryman may return for training camp but a full recovery is not assured.

***Philadelphia ended Sunday night's game without its top three cornerbacks. Ronald Darby suffered a knee injury (Monday Update: Darby's injury has been confirmed an ACL tear). Both Sidney Jones and Jalen Mills may not be ready next week either.

***Miami cornerback Bobby McCain left with a concussion for the second time in two weeks. He will undoubtedly require multiple weeks to navigate the return to play protocol.


Follow-up Appointments

A.J. Green | Right foot injury | Week-to-Week | Week 13+ Return

Last week, Adam Schefter reported Green would rehab for two weeks then have another evaluation to determine whether he was healthy enough to return to football-related activity. That strongly suggested a plantar plate injury -- as discussed in last Monday's column here -- and an extended absence. A Sunday morning report from Ian Rapoport raised a glimmer of hope that Green could play as soon as this week, arguing that Green was a tough and quick healer and has "a chance" to play.

Schefter quickly followed up by reinforcing his earlier report, citing sources telling him Green would not likely return until December. Given the reporting on Green's injury, non-weight bearing status on crutches, and in-person visit with Dr. Robert Anderson, Schefter's reports will prove more accurate than Rapoport's. While the floundering Bengals would love to have Green back for the next two weeks' divisional matchups (at BAL, vs CLE), Week 13 is likely the most optimistic early return date.

Rob Gronkowski | Back / ankle injuries | Week-to-Week | Week 12 Return

The Patriots allowed Gronkowski to travel to Tennessee last weekend but kept him inactive. Traveling rather than intensive rehab at home is a strong sign Gronkowski is nearing a return and New England chose caution over risking aggravation. Expect Gronkowski to return after the Patriots' Week 11 bye. Hopefully, a month of rest and rehab will have Gronkowski near full recovery and at full strength for the rest of November and December.

Chris Carson | Hip / Groin strain | Week-to-Week | Questionable Week 11

After Sunday's game, Pete Carroll told reporters Carson may have been healthier coming into Week 10 than he was when the Seahawks put him on the active roster in Week 9. Seattle chose to limit Carson's practice reps and rest him this week with the short turnaround to Thursday's home game against Green Bay in mind. If that's accurate, Carson will be practicing on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Others of note:

***Stefon Diggs is likely to return from a rib injury this week. I'll update if Mike Zimmer's Monday press conference is more pessimistic than expected.

***Rex Burkhead has been designated to return from a Week 3 neck injury. He's first eligible to return in Week 13 and should be ready to return immediately.

***Sammy Watkins missed last week's game with a minor foot injury. Multiple reports suggest Watkins' absence was precautionary. His limited Friday practice looks optimistic.

***Keke Coutee confirmed his most recent hamstring strain affects his left leg. That means it's not an aggravation of his early season hamstring strain. But Coutee also told reporters he would not play at less than full strength. If Coutee is not practicing on Wednesday, prepare for another week or two of rehab. Also watch for details on D'Onta Foreman's practice participation. He may be moved to the active roster in time to play this week.

Offensive line and defensive notes:

***Miami offensive tackles Laremy Tunsil (ankle / knee) and Ja'Wuan James will have two weeks to continue rehabbing injuries through the Week 11 bye. Neither recovered well enough to play last week.

***Deion Jones was designated to return this week by the Falcons. He is eligible to return in Week 11. The Atlanta defense has struggled to handle running backs and tight ends without him.
