Week 7 is in the rearview window. Let’s take a look at the injuries going into Week 8.
Austin Ekeler played through an ankle injury on Sunday and was limited. He will likely miss some time during practice to rest. Since he did play through the injury, it would track that he would play on DNF against the Bears, but we will see. Josh Kelley could again see more work than usual either way.
Roschon Johnson looks like he’ll be cleared from his concussion this week ahead of a matchup with the Chargers. D’Onta Foreman is coming off a three touchdown game, but Johnson was ahead of him before his injury.
Miles Sanders had the bye to rest his shoulder, but we can’t be sure he’ll be back this week against the Texans. If he can’t play, Chuba Hubbard will take the lead again.
Aaron Jones appeared to still be on a snap count last week against the Broncos as AJ Dillon had one of his better games. We’ll see if he continues to be limited in practice. The Packers take on the Vikings in Week 8.
David Montgomery is dealing with a rib injury that could keep him out this week against the Raiders on Monday night. Jahmyr Gibbs would be the lead back again if Montgomery is out.
Jerome Ford has an ankle injury, but there have been no reports on the extent of the injury yet. It didn’t look great, so I’d be looking to add Kareem Hunt if he is available.
Bijan Robinson barely saw the field last week due to a bad headache. He says he will play this week against the Titans.
Deebo Samuel is likely out until after the 49ers Week 9 bye with a fractured shoulder.
Christian Watson is dealing with a knee injury, but it sounds like he has a decent shot at playing this week against the Vikings.
DK Metcalf missed last week with a hip injury. His status for this week against the Browns is still up in the air, but it doesn’t sound like a long term injury.
Tank Dell practiced on Monday and looks like he is close to being cleared of his concussion. He should be able to go this week against the Panthers.
