NFL INJURIES from WEEK 13

Here’s a roundup of the most notable NFL injuries to monitor before Week 14.

Arizona Cardinals

  • WR Marquise Brown

Brown did not return versus the Steelers due to a heel injury. His week 14 status remained undetermined.

Atlanta Falcons

  • CB AJ Terell

Head coach Arthur Smith confirmed that cornerback A.J. Terrell is in the concussion protocol after leaving early in Sunday’s game. Terrell will have to clear the protocol to play in next Sunday’s home game against the Buccaneers.

Cleveland Browns

  • WR Amari Copper

Cooper was injured in the second quarter while trying to catch a pass from quarterback Joe Flacco. He was taken to the locker room shortly after and ruled out with what the team called a head injury. Cooper’s injury is the latest blow to a Browns offense decimated by injuries.

Green Bay Packers

  • WR Christian Watson

Watson suffered what looked to be a hamstring injury late in the fourth quarter in Week 13. There is hope that it was only a cramp that Watson was dealing with. He was seen walking around the field after the game, exchanging pleasantries. Some reports believe Watson is likely to miss one or two weeks, depending on the severity of this strain. 

Houston Texans

  • WR Tank Dell

Dell suffered a season-ending fractured left fibula, sources confirmed to ESPN.

Jacksonville Jaguars

  • QB Trevor Lawrence
  • WR Christian Kirk

Kirk left the game during the first quarter of Monday Night Football. He will likely miss the remainder of the regular season after Ian Rapoport reported he will require core muscle surgery. Recovery is typically eight weeks.

Lawrence got his ankle stepped on and rolled up late in the game Monday and needed a lot of help to get to the locker room. He was not carted off; however, his status for Week 14 at the Browns is in doubt. However, it appears he avoided a severe injury.

Los Angeles Rams

  • WR Puka Nacua
  • TE Tyler Higbee

Nacua injured his shoulder in Sunday’s victory over the Browns. He has an AC joint sprain but is expected to play against the Ravens in Week 14, coach Sean McVay said Monday.

Higbee injured his neck against the Browns and is considered day-to-day, McVay said.

Miami Dolphins

  • OT Terron Armstead
  • OT Robert Hunt
  • LB Jerome Baker

A trio of Dolphins’ starters left Sunday against the Washington Commanders because of injuries. Linebacker Jerome Baker, offensive linemen Terron Armstead, and Robert Hunt all sustained injuries that sidelined them for the remainder of the game.

McDaniel said Armstead, who has dealt with multiple lower-extremity injuries this season, was “available” to return. McDaniel said that Hunt aggravated a previous hamstring injury late in the third quarter but not to the same severity. ESPN’s Adam Schefter provided a somewhat positive update on Baker’s health, reporting that the former Ohio State Buckeye suffered an MCL injury that’s considered week-to-week.

New England Patriots

  • RB Rhamondre Stevenson

Stevenson had to be helped off the field with a right ankle injury late in the first quarter of Sunday’s loss. The Patriots playmaker will undergo an MRI on his ankle this week, per a source. The belief is that Stevenson suffered a sprain after initial X-rays, but the MRI will confirm the diagnosis. Initial X-rays on Stevenson’s ankle were negative, but the team is unsure how much time he could miss.

New Orleans Saints

  • QB Derek Carr

Carr is in the concussion protocol after sustaining his second concussion in three weeks, according to Saints coach Dennis Allen. Allen said that Carr’s shoulder appears to be okay after the Lions game but that Carr is also being evaluated for a rib injury. 

Philadelphia Eagles

  • RB D’Andre Swift

Swift took a huge hit, was slow to get up, and eventually made his way to the medical tent and the locker room. His Week 14 status remains undetermined.

Pittsburgh Steelers

  • QB Kenny Pickett

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin said QB Kenny Pickett underwent surgery on his high ankle sprain this morning and is out Thursday night vs. the Patriots. Tomlin said QB Mitch Trubisky will start vs. the Patriots, but he didn’t want to place a time estimate on how much time Kenny Pickett would miss beyond this week.

Tennessee Titans

  • RB Derek Henry
  • DT Jeffery Simmons

Henry, who left Sunday’s game in the fourth quarter to be checked for a concussion, is in concussion protocol, leaving his status for Monday night’s game at Miami in question. Per Mike Vrabel, Simmons is expected to miss “a couple of weeks” due to a knee injury.

Washington Commanders

  • RB Brian Robinson

Robinson suffered a hamstring injury in the first half against the Dolphins and was ruled out for the remainder of the game. Stay tuned for Washington’s practice report to see an updated status on the severity of the injury.
