  • New Orleans Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/30/16DBJimmy PruittKneeQUESTIONABLEPruitt (knee) was waived/injured by the Saints on Monday, WWL's Kristian Garic reports.

    Pruitt suffered a torn patellar tendon during the Saints' third preseason game Friday versus the Steelers. Provided he clears waivers, he's likely destined for New Orleans' injured reserve list.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/27/16TEMichael HoomanawanuiLegQUESTIONABLEHoomanawanui was forced out of Friday's matchup with the Steelers due to a left leg injury, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.

    It is unclear how the injury was sustained, but the 28-year-old was unable to put any weight on his left leg as trainers helped him off the field. Hoomanawanui currently projects as the third tight end on the Saints' depth chart. Expect an update on his status when the team releases more information.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/27/16RBDaniel LascoConcussionQUESTIONABLELasco is currently in the league's concussion protocol following Friday's preseason game against the Steelers, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.

    Lasco was given just one rush attempt during Friday's third preseason game, accounting for four yards, and claimed to be fine after sustaining the head injury in the fourth quarter on a receiving play. If the injury lingers, Lasco could be in danger of not making the 53-man roster.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/27/16RBMarcus MurphyConcussionQUESTIONABLEMurphy sustained a concussion in Friday's preseason game against the Steelers, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.

    Murphy is currently competing for a spot on the 53-man roster and this injury could pose problems for that manifesting. However, he saw 12 offensive snaps Friday before sustaining the concussion and seemed to be on track to remain on the roster.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/24/16WRVincent BrownCalfQUESTIONABLEThe Saints released Brown (calf) with an injury settlement Thursday, removing him from injured reserve, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Brown joined the Saints in May, adding a veteran presence to a receiving corps lacking in experience. However, he failed his pre-training camp physical due to a strained calf, which will bring his brief tenure in New Orleans to a close. The severity of the injury will likely determine when he receives a chance with another organization.

    (Updated 07/30/2016)
    08/15/16DLSheldon RankinsLower LegOUTRankins, who was carted off during Monday's practice, will have surgery to repair a fractured fibula and is expected to miss six weeks, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

    Rankins' injury is a tough blow to the Saints' defense, which aded him with the 12th overall pick in this year's draft to beef up its front line. Furthermore, the Louisville product was impressive to this point in camp, even intercepting Tom Brady during joint practices with the Patriots last week. With Rankins now sidelined going into the regular season, Nick Fairley, John Jenkins and fellow rookie David Onyemata should see more reps at defensive tackle.

    (Updated 08/15/2016)
    08/04/16RBAustin JohnsonKneeQUESTIONABLEJohnson injured his knee during Thursday's practice, Nick Underhill of The Advocate reports.

    Johnson underwent an MRI on Thursday after injuring his knee and the results of that haven't yet been released, leaving him without a timetable for return. Since joining the Saints in 2014, the fullback has played in 17 games, totaling just 31 yards rushing and one touchdown. A bulk of his snaps come on special teams, where he played 39 percent of the teams snaps last year. His lack of offensive production renders him irrelevant in nearly all fantasy formats this season.

    (Updated 08/04/2016)
    05/16/16LBTony StewardBackPROBABLESteward has been placed on injured reserve due to a back injury suffered in Sunday's win over Houston, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    Starter Nigel Bradham may not be able to make it back from his ankle injury this week. If that doesn't happen, the Bills would be down their top two guys at the inside linebacker spot next to Preston Brown.

    (Updated 12/10/2015)
    04/08/16DLCameron JordanBackPROBABLEJordan (back) practiced without limitations Thursday, Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Jordan underwent back surgery in February and wasn't expected to rejoin the team until training camp. However, Jordan was much farther ahead in his recovery than expected and was able to return to the practice field in full for the team's OTAs on Thursday. Jordan is coming off a 10-sack Pro Bowl season and with the back injury finally behind him, he'll have the chance to improve on his numbers.

    Chicago Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/28/16LBJonathan AndersonShoulderQUESTIONABLEAnderson suffered a shoulder injury during Saturday's preseason loss to the Chiefs, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Signed by the Bears as an undrafted free agent in May of 2015, Anderson was a resident of the practice squad for the first five games before receiving a promotion to the active roster In Week 6. He earned three starts along the way, compiling 36 tackles (30 solo), two passes defended, and one interception, while logging 30 percent of the defensive snaps and 32 percent of the special teams snaps. Currently, the severity of Anderson's shoulder injury is unknown, but he serves as a depth inside linebacker when healthy.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/27/16DBDeon BushHeadQUESTIONABLEBush is dealing with a head and neck injury and will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    The exact severity of the rookie's injury remains unclear, but the Bears are likely playing it safe by resting him. Bush is expected to provide added depth to the secondary this season.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/27/16QBBrian HoyerRibsPROBABLEHoyer is dealing with sore ribs after taking a hard hit in Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs, NFL Network's Stacey Dales reports.

    Hoyer actually returned to the game for Chicago's final six offensive snaps, after No. 3 quarterback Connor Shaw suffered a broken leg. X-rays on Hoyer's ribs come back negative, suggesting he should be fine to serve as Jay Cutler's top backup Week 1 against the Texans. With Cutler unlikely to play in the final preseason game, David Fales could get an extended look under center, after failing to get a snap in the past two exhibitions.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/27/16DBTracy PorterConcussionQUESTIONABLEPorter left Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs to be evaluated for a concussion, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Porter appeared to suffer a concussion when a teammate's leg collided with his helmet. He previously missed time due to concussions in 2012 and 2013, but he hasn't had any reported the past few years. If Porter were to miss time in the regular season, Chicago's thin group of cornerbacks would be ripe for the picking. Fellow starter Kyle Fuller (knee) is already uncertain for the start of the season, and the team's depth mostly consists of young players that were either late-round picks or undrafted.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/21/16LBLeonard FloydHamstringPROBABLEFloyd (hamstring) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Floyd's NFL career hasn't jump started the way he or the Bears would have preferred. Chicago has witnessed its top pick from April's draft go down twice due to injury and the regular season is yet kickoff. Fortunately for the Bears, Floyd's hamstring issue does not appear to be long-term and he should be back to 100 percent in the near future.

    (Updated 08/23/2016)
    08/19/16DBKyle FullerKneeQUESTIONABLEFuller (knee) underwent arthroscopic surgery this week and he is expected to miss several weeks, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The Bears didn't specify which knee Fuller had scoped this week, but this is concerning news nonetheless for a player that's had a history of knee issues. The ominous "several weeks" timetable puts his status for Week 1 in question, which would leave the Bears down one of their starting corners for the opener against the Texans. If Fuller is unable to play in the opener, De'Vante Bausby or Deiondre' Hall would have to step up at the right corner spot.

    (Updated 08/18/2016)
    08/19/16DBJacoby GlennConcussionQUESTIONABLEGlenn will miss the remainder of Thursday's game after being diagnosed with a concussion.

    The second-year corner out of Central Florida was taken to the locker room during Thursday's game to be evaluated for a possible concussion. The team's medical staff confirmed that he does indeed have a concussion, which will end his night. He got the start Thursday so the coaching staff could get an extended look at him in game action, but Glenn is more likely to end up as a fringe roster player when the Bears make their final cut-downs.

    (Updated 08/18/2016)
    08/19/16WRDeonte ThompsonLower LegQUESTIONABLEThompson missed practice Saturday with an ankle "problem", Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

    Thompson left Thursday's preseason game with a walking boot on his left foot, and this report clarifies that he's dealing specifically with an ankle injury. He's currently in line to return kickoffs for the Bears while also playing in a reserve role at wide receiver. He'll need to heal up in three weeks to be available for Week 1.

    (Updated 08/21/2016)
    08/18/16TEBen BrauneckerAnklePROBABLEBraunecker worked out on the side of practice on Thursday as he recovers from an ankle injury, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Braunecker is an undrafted rookie who faces an uphill battle to make Chicago's roster, as he's buried on the depth chart. The sooner he can return to action the better, and it appears he's nearing a return now that he's been able to at least work out on the side. Rob Housler and Gannon Sinclair will likely continue to see extra reps as long as Braunecker is out.

    (Updated 08/18/2016)
    08/13/16TEZach MillerConcussionPROBABLEMiller (concussion) was cleared from the NFL's concussion protocol, allowing him to return to practice Monday.

    Though cleared from the recent issue, Miller does have a lengthy injury record that includes multiple concussion. Poor health made it tough for him to hold significant roles in the past, but he's now locked in as Chicago's top tight end for however long he can stay on the field. With Matt Forte no longer in Chicago, the 31-year-old Miller may become Jay Cutler's favorite security blanket when nothing is open downfield.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/12/16DBDeAndre Houston-CarsonNeckQUESTIONABLEHouston-Carson suffered a neck injury in Thursday's preseason game, the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The severity of the injury isn't clear, but it sounds like he could be sidelined awhile.

    (Updated 08/12/2016)
    08/12/16WREddie RoyalConcussionPROBABLERoyal (concussion) was cleared from the NFL's concussion protocol. allowing him to return to practice Monday.

    With Zach Miller (concussion) also cleared for Monday's practice, Jay CUtler should have his full complement of weapons at the beginning of the season. Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White will gobble up the vast majority of outside receiver snaps, leaving Royal to work primarily as the slot man in three-wide sets.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/11/16DLGreg ScruggsChestPROBABLEScruggs will not play in Thursday's preseason opener due to a bruised lung, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    It is unclear when Scruggs sustained this injury, but it is severe enough to keep him out of action in the preseason opener. The 25-year-old tight end currently projects as the fourth tight end on the Bears depth chart, so he is competing for a roster spot.

    (Updated 08/11/2016)
    07/29/16DLEgo FergusonSuspensionSUSPENDFerguson has been handed a four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago reports.

    After notching three tackles in four games, Ferguson was placed on season-ending injured reserve in October due to a nagging knee injury. Thus, his ban won't kick in until he's healthy enough to take the field during the 2016 campaign.

    (Updated 11/12/2015)
    04/08/16DLCornelius WashingtonQuadricepsPROBABLEWashington (knee) did some work on the side of practice on Thursday, Brad Biggs the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Washington was injured during last Thursday's preseason game and hasn't practiced since. The injury was never disclosed but appeared to be serious. His work on the side of practice is an encouraging sign that the fourth-year defensive lineman will be able to return to practice soon.
