Unfortunately, injuries are part of Football and pretty much every week, players go down. This week was no different. At times, some of the injuries are minor, while at others it can impact a player for multiple weeks, and even for the entire season.

Fantasy owners who lost players that are expected to miss significant time, adjustments need to be made, and the waiver wire will be your best friend.

With that said, let’s take a look at some of this week’s injuries and the impact of the injury.

Cooper Kupp – Rams: Kupp went down on a non-contact play and the worst was instantly feared. He left Sunday’s game and never returned. On Monday, an MRI confirmed that he tore his ACL and will miss the remainder of the season. This is a tough loss for the Rams and fantasy owners who depended on Kupp. Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods should see an increase in usage, and Josh Reynolds should see more playing time moving forward. Wishing Kupp a speedy and healthy recovery.

Marvin Jones – Lions: Jones exited Sunday’s game with a need injury and was unable to get back in the game. On Monday, an MRI revealed no damage to his ACL and MCL, but did show that he suffered a bone bruise. He is considered day to day with the injury. The Lions will be on a short week following this week’s matchup against the Panthers, as they play on Thanksgiving, so they could elect to rest Jones this week. We should know more regarding his status at some point later this week. Kenny Golladay and T.J. Jones will likely work as the top two wide outs should Jones miss any time.

Martavis Bryant – Raiders: Bryant exited Sunday’s game with a knee injury and never returned. Initial reports suggest a potential tear in his PCL, but there have been no further reports confirming it. We should know more regarding the severity once the test results are in.

Jakeem Grant – Dolphins: Grant was seen with a noticeable limp on Sunday against the Packers and was ultimately carted off the field. It was feared that he tore his Achilles, but tests on Monday revealed that was not the case. He is still expected to miss time with the injury, but it appears he avoided a season-ending injury at this time.
