Week 8 Injury Report: Monday

by Daniel Hall

Week 8 Injuries: Monday

Antonio Brown WR Pittsburgh Steelers: So everything that I’m reading out of Pittsburgh is that Brown’s injury is not serious and should be fine coming out of the bye in week 9. You can use this sentence as the pause for your deep sigh of relief. However, AB is undoubtedly a huge part of your fantasy team and that’s why any injury news regarding a player of this caliber is worth discussing. Lots of people handcuff their top RB’s in Fantasy and I think a player of AB’s caliber is worth having a backup plan around as well. Monitor his practice reports this week even though he is on a bye.

Hunter Henry TE San Diego Chargers: The Chargers put Rookie TE Hunter Henry on concussion protocol this week. Hate seeing that for the breakout young TE out of Arkansas. No one is as disappointed as me hearing this news. I’ve been singing Hunter’s praises all season. Hunter reported the symptoms of a concussion after the game prompting his entry into the protocol this week. Continue to monitor Henry’s progress through the week as he will be questionable.

Delanie Walker TE Tennessee Titans: Arguably the best Titans pass catcher, Delanie Walker, is dealing with a chest injury. Walker has been a TE1 in a season without many true ones at that position. If you have Walker on your team continue to monitor his practice report this week and if he cannot go make sure to check out our Waiver report at Nohuddleffb.com for a last second replacement.

Tevin Coleman RB Atlanta Falcons: Tevin Coleman has been a part of a two-headed monster in Atlanta this season with Devonte Freeman. This week half of the Hydra may have to miss with a hamstring injury. The main part of Coleman game is his sub 4.4 speed. An injury to the hamstring for Coleman is basically kryptonite. If Coleman cannot go Freeman becomes a must-start in all formats. Continue to monitor him through the week. 

Here are other notable injuries we are monitoring throughout the week. Their status will become clearer as the weekend approaches and No Huddle will send out a complete updated report as this week’s practices come to a close this weekend
