  • Seattle Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/31/16RBThomas RawlsAnkleQUESTIONABLERawls' teammate Christine Michael has looked fantastic this preseason.

    Rawls was great last year as a rookie and is ostensibly still the team's starting back. But given he's returning from an ankle injury and Michael has looked so good this preseason, there has to be some concern about the potential for a timeshare on early downs.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/31/16DLJarran ReedToeQUESTIONABLEReed (toe) will not play in the Seahawks' final preseason game on Thursday.

    Reed has been sidelined since suffering a toe injury during Seattle's second preseason tilt. However, he's expected to be ready for the team's regular season opener against the Dolphins.

    (Updated 08/31/2016)
    08/28/16WRTanner McEvoyGroinQUESTIONABLEMcEvoy (groin) has a chance to play in the Seahawks' preseason finale on Thursday.

    McEvoy suffered the groin injury in Seattle's third preseason contest. Already a long shot to make the roster, McEvoy is all but assured to be waived or placed on injured reserve if he's unable to lace up for Thursday's tilt.

    (Updated 08/31/2016)
    08/24/16DLTavaris BarnesUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEBarnes was signed by the Seahawks on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Barnes spent the 2015 season in New Orleans with the Saints where he notched five tackles (three solo) in 12 contests. At this point he's a bit of a longshot to make Seattle's final roster.

    (Updated 04/28/2016)
    08/24/16DBStanley Jean-BaptisteShoulderQUESTIONABLEJean-Baptiste (shoulder) has been placed on the Seahawks' waived/injured list.

    Jean-Baptiste, signed onto Seattle's practice squad in December, reportedly injured his shoulder during Saturday's preseason opener against Kansas City. As for the Seahawks, this move creates space for the return of DT Tony McDaniels.

    (Updated 08/16/2016)
    08/19/16TENick VannettAnkleQUESTIONABLEVannett (ankle) has yet to start running and could still be a week away from a return to field, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

    Vannett suffered the ankle injury during the second week of the preseason and has been sidelined ever since. He's yet to start running, which seems to indicate he's still a ways off from a potential return. He's expected to be out for at least another week, so Vannett should be considered questionable for the team's regular season opener versus the Dolphins on Sept. 11. Even when healthy, Vannett is only a depth option behind the likes of Jimmy Graham and Luke Wilson.

    (Updated 08/31/2016)
    08/19/16LBK.J. WrightUndisclosedPROBABLEWright went back to Seattle's locker room with an undisclosed injury during Thursday's preseason game against the Vikings, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

    The extent of Wright's injury has yet to be determined, but the team's training staff removed him from the game and took him back to the locker room after he was shaken up in the second quarter of Thursday's tilt. A further update on Wright's injury figures to be made available after halftime.

    (Updated 08/18/2016)
    08/16/16DLJordan HillGroinQUESTIONABLEThe Seahawks announced a several of roster moves on Tuesday, according to the Everett Herald. The team placed defensive tackle Jordan Hill on injured reserve with a calf injury. In a corresponding move, Seattle signed defensive back Steven Terrell off the practice squad to fill Hill's roster spot. Defensive tackle Jimmy Staten was also signed to the practice squad.
    08/16/16LBMike MorganGroinPROBABLEMorgan will be available for Thursday's preseason matchup with the Vikings, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    Morgan saw a specialist for a groin injury earlier in the week, but as expected, it's nothing too serious. He's expected to be available for Thursday's outing with the Vikings, which means he should be over the injury moving forward. Morgan currently projects to take on a starter's role during the upcoming season and he doesn't appear to be in danger of missing Week 1.

    (Updated 08/17/2016)
    08/10/16TEJimmy GrahamKneeQUESTIONABLEAlthough he said Graham (knee) has been a full participant at recent practices, head coach Pete Carroll acknowledged that he won't have a good idea about the tight end's Week 1 availability until the final days leading up to the game, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    Graham was activated from the PUP list Aug. 10 and returned to team work at practice last Wednesday. He'll conclude the preseason without any appearances, with everything suggesting that he's truly questionable for Week 1 against the Dolphins. Even if he plays, Graham probably won't be ready for a full starter's complement of snaps, perhaps being limited to passing downs and red zone work. Luke Willson figures to pick up the slack, with Nick Vannett (ankle) and/or Brandon Williams possibly chipping in.

    (Updated 08/31/2016)
    08/04/16DBKam ChancellorGroinPROBABLEChancellor (groin) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Cowboys. Defensive coordinator Kris Richard said Tuesday, "He should be (available), and hopefully he will be, but it's still up in the air. He's had a few good days of practice, but we'll see."

    Chancellor returned to practice on Tuesday after nursing a groin injury over the weekend, which kept him out of last Thursday's game against the Vikings. The Seahawks will likely exercise extreme caution when determining if their Pro Bowl safety will take the field on Thursday, with a decision likely to be made that morning. If he is held out, look for Kelcie McCray and Tyvis Powell to see increased reps.

    (Updated 08/24/2016)
    08/04/16DLFrank ClarkCalfPROBABLEClark sat out Thursday's practice due to a calf injury, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    Short of being confirmed as a calf injury, little is known about the severity of Clark's injury and as such he's without a return timetable. He played in 15 games for the Seahawks in what was his rookie year in 2015, totaling three sacks, two passes defensed, and 16 tackles. Montese Overton figures to see some added reps as long as Clark is sidelined.

    (Updated 08/04/2016)
    08/04/16LBBrock CoyleObliquePROBABLECoyle was held out of Thursday's practice due to an oblique injury, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    It's unclear how severe Coyle's injury is and he's currently without a timetable to return. He's likely competing for a role off the bench and on special teams once again. In 2015, he played just 1.5 percent of Seattle's defensive snaps, but 36.8 percent of the team's special teams snaps. Look for Steve Longa to see extra reps while Coyle is out.

    Atlanta Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/26/16DLAdrian ClaybornShoulderPROBABLEClayborn (shoulder) is expected back for Week 1, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

    Clayborn was scheduled for an MRI on Friday, after injuring his shoulder during Thursday's preseason game against the Dolphins. He's expected to start at left defensive end, but he may lose a lot of snaps to Brooks Reed and/or Dwight Freeney.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/26/16WRJustin HardyAnkleQUESTIONABLEHardy suffered an ankle injury in Thursday's preseason matchup with the Dolphins and will not return to the game.

    The Falcons would rather be safe than sorry as they give the wideout the rest of the night off. Hardy will join Julio Jones on the sidelines for the remainder of the game, who also suffered some sort of ankle injury on Thursday night. The severity of the injury is still unknown, but expect more clarity on the matter once the team releases information in the next couple of days.

    (Updated 08/25/2016)
    08/26/16WRJulio JonesAnklePROBABLEHead coach Dan Quinn said Monday that Jones (ankle) will return to practice either Wednesday or next Monday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

    Jones said he would have kept playing in Thursday's preseason game against the Dolphins if it had been a regular-season contest. There's been no cause to doubt his downplaying of the injury, as the Falcons have confirmed that they expect him back in short order. Even if he does return Wednesday, the veteran wideout won't play in Thursday's preseason finale. It sounds as if he'll get in a full week of practice in preparation for Week 1 against the Bucs.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/26/16DBKeanu NealKneeQUESTIONABLENeal (torso) injured his knee in Thursday's preseason loss to the Dolphins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Neal is dealing with his second injury of the preseason. First it was a torso strain that kept him out of the team's first preseason game and now his knee injury. Despite being dinged up a bit, the rookie did tell teammates that he didn't think the injury was serious and he expects to play in the teams Week 1 matchup with Tampa Bay.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/26/16RBBrandon WildsKneePROBABLEWilds (knee) is doubtful to play in the Falcons' preseason finale Thursday, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

    Wilds went down in the team's third preseason contest last Thursday and was unable to return. Expect his status to be confirmed before kickoff.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/25/16KMatt BryantUndisclosedPROBABLEBryant (undisclosed) did not practice Monday due to muscle tightness, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.

    Bryant was held out of Thursday's preseason game due to an undisclosed injury and has now missed the team's past two practices. It's unclear if the muscle tightness spurred the absence, and he's currently without a timetable for return.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/25/16LBDwight FreeneyBackQUESTIONABLEFreeney (back) returned to practice on Monday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

    Freeney has been dealing with a back strain throughout the preseason, which kept him off the field for Thursday's preseason loss to the Dolphins. While he did return to practice, it seems unlikely the coaching will risk the chance of the injury becoming worse and will keep the veteran on the sidelines for Thursday's preseason finale against the Jaguars.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/19/16DLVic BeasleyShoulderPROBABLEBeasley has a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder, but he's still expected to play in Atlanta's third preseason game, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

    Beasley missed Thursday's preseason game against the Browns, and while he may end up sitting out another exhibition, this doesn't sound like a threat to his Week 1 availability. Selected eighth overall in the 2015 NFL Draft, Beasley had just 20 tackles and four sacks while working in a part-time role as a rookie. He's expected to start and take on a considerable snap count this season, working as a hybrid linebacker/defensive end, with his role mostly focused on getting after the quarterback.

    (Updated 08/19/2016)
    08/12/16DBKemal IshmaelShoulderPROBABLEIshmael (shoulder) took part in 11-on-11 drills Monday for the first time since injuring his shoulder, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.

    Ishmael hadn't practiced in full since injuring his shoulder in the Falcons' preseason opener. His return is an encouraging sign for the safety, who's expected to start for Atlanta after playing rotationally in 2015.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/10/16RBTerron WardAnklePROBABLEWard (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's preseason matchup with the Dolphins.

    Ward hasn't played so far this preseason and it's unclear if he'll be able to return for the team's final go before the regular season, next Thursday against the Jaguars. He's expected to be the team's No. 3 option at running back, behind Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, but his lengthy absence will again open the door Gus Johnson to take a shot at that role with added game snaps on Thursday.

    (Updated 08/25/2016)
    07/29/16DBJalen CollinsSuspensionSUSPENDCollins tallied 17 total tackles in 16 games during his rookie year with the Falcons.

    Collins was limited to rotational work, only seeing the field on 28.6 percent of the total defensive snaps. He'll likely earn more playing time in the coming years, but the Falcons have a pretty young core of secondary players, meaning it won't be easy for Collins to ascend the ranks.
