Monday Injury Rounds: Week 17 - Footballguys

Projecting availability on Todd Gurley, James Conner, and Odell Beckham in Week 17. Detailed table reviewing injuries at every position.

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.


Week 16 injuries of note

***Marcus Mariota aggravated an ongoing nerve issue in his elbow and did not return. Grip strength will be an issue this week. The Titans have allowed Mariota to play at full strength at times this season. In a must win situation in Week 17, they may do so again.

***Demaryius Thomas ruptured his left Achilles. He faces another grueling offseason rehab to return in time for the start of the 2019 season.

***Dante Pettis sprained his left MCL yesterday. The Niners will further evaluate his injury. Most MCL injuries do not require surgical repair but Pettis won't play in Week 17.
