NFL Week 2 Injury Report

Richard Sherman, CB

Team: San Francisco 49ers

Injury: Leg

Status: IR-Possible return in week 4

The news of Sherman’s injury is a huge blow to the 49ers who are dealing with numerous injuries, especially on offense. Sherman’s injury also comes as a surprise, considering he played 74 out of 78 snaps in the week 1 loss against the Cardinals.

Even stranger, Sherman was effective on Sunday, allowing just one catch all day and his name wasn’t mentioned on any post-game injury report.

Per Mike Garafolo, Sherman hurt his leg, but details of the injury are still unclear. The 32 year old will be sidelined for, at the least, the 49ers’ next 3 games.

Le’Veon Bell, RB

Team: New York Jets

Injury: Hamstring

Status: IR-Possible return in week 4

Bell suffered the hamstring injury in the first half of the Jets’ week 1 loss against the Bills. He attempted to play through it, but only managed to pick up 14 rushing yards in the game.

Bell will sit out the next 4 weeks. Until then, veteran RB Frank Gore will have to pick up the slack.

Michael Thomas, WR

Team: New Orleans Saints

Injury: High Ankle Sprain

Status: Doubtful

Thomas suffered a high ankle sprain in week 1 as the Saints cruised past Tom Brady and the Bucs. What initially seemed like an insignificant injury has become serious quickly.

It now looks likely that Thomas will end up on the 3 week injured reserve. Apart from the Saints, this injury is also terrible news for fantasy owners who drafted the pre-season consensus top WR.
