Fantasy Football Week 10 Injury Report: Patrick Mahomes back, Matthew Stafford inactive

Week 10 is shaping up as one where we'll see plenty of big names passing like ships in the night. While we have the welcome returns of superstars like Patrick Mahomes and Alvin Kamara to action, we'll also see the likes of Jacoby Brissett, T.Y. Hilton, James Conner and Adam Thielen sit out. Additionally, several other notable Fantasy pieces will be trying to prove they're capable of suiting up with their injuries later in the morning when pregame warmups unfold. With plenty of news brewing, let's jump right into the latest as of early Sunday morning:

Week 10 Injuries
Week 10 Preview
Injury Report Update
Quarterback injuries
KC Kansas City • #15
Age: 24 • Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Not listed
Mahomes does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's Week 10 battle against the Titans after missing two games with a knee injury. Mahomes was able to practice all week and reportedly will not have any limitations with is mobility or any other aspect of his play after having attempted his full range of throws over the three sessions of prep for Tennessee. His return naturally boosts the overall fantasy outlook for all of Kansas City's skill-position players, particularly Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins and Travis Kelce.
DET Detroit • #9
Age: 31 • Experience: 11 year
Injury
Back
Stafford is inactive Sunday against the Bears, as he deals with fractures in his back, according to reports. Stafford reportedly pushed to play, but doctors wouldn't clear him to play. Stafford turned in three limited practices this past week, and it's not clear what the long-term ramifications of this injury are. Jeff Driskel will start in Stafford's place, and this injury certainly downgrades everyone on the Lions offense against a tough matchup.
BAL Baltimore • #8
Age: 22 • Experience: 2 yrs.
Injury
Illness
Jackson is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, but he was able to work back to a full practice Friday and received a positive report from coach John Harbaugh following that session. Additionally, early Sunday morning reports indicate he's expected to play. Robert Griffin would step in as the starter against Cincinnati should Jackson unexpectedly suffer a setback.
IND Indianapolis • #7
Age: 26 • Experience: 4 yrs.
Injury
Knee
Brissett will not play in Week 10 against the Dolphins despite practicing in limited fashion all week. Veteran Brian Hoyer, who threw for 168 yards and three touchdowns in emergency duty against the Steelers in Week 9, will man a Colts offense that will also be missing T.Y. Hilton (calf) versus Miami.
CAR Carolina • #1
Age: 30 • Experience: 9 yrs.
Injury
Foot
Newton was placed on injured reserve this past week, paving the way for Kyle Allen to remain the starter for the remainder of the season. Newton's Lisfranc injury has reportedly been very resistant to treatment, putting his overall future in at least some doubt.
Running back injuries
NYJ N.Y. Jets • #26
Age: 27 • Experience: 6 yrs.
Injury
Knee
Bell is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants after managing just limited Thursday and Friday practices this week. However, as announced by Bell himself via his Twitter account Saturday night and confirmed by a follow-up report, the star back is fully expected to play. If there were to be an unexpected setback, Ty Montgomery and Bilal Powell would be the top two backfield options for Gang Green.
NO New Orleans • #41
Age: 24 • Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Knee/Ankle
Kamara will return to action against the Falcons in Week 10 after missing the last two games prior to New Orleans' Week 9 bye with knee and ankle injuries. Kamara's return will naturally affect the workload of Latavius Murray, who notched a pair of 100-yard efforts in Kamara's stead. However, coach Sean Payton went on record as saying Murray will retain a "significant" role despite Kamara's return.
PIT Pittsburgh • #30
Age: 24 • Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Shoulder
Conner will not play in Sunday's Week 10 interconference battle against the Rams after missing practice all week. With Benny Snell (knee) also out against Los Angeles, Jaylen Samuels and Trey Edmunds, who served as an effective receiving (Samuels) and running (Edmunds) tandem in the Week 9 win against the Colts, will once again handle the backfield work for Pittsburgh.
ARI Arizona • #29
Age: 23 • Experience: 2 yrs.
Injury
Hamstring
Edmonds will not play in Sunday's Week 10 tilt against the Buccaneers after missing practice all week. However, Arizona remains well-stocked at running back, considering Kenyan Drake exceeded the 100-yard mark in his first game with the Cardinals in Week 9 against an elite 49ers defense, while David Johnson is set to return from his ankle injury against Tampa as well.
SF San Francisco • #31
Age: 27 • Experience: 5 yrs.
Injury
Knee
Mostert is questionable for Monday night's Week 10 divisional showdown versus the Seahawks. Mostert was able to turn in three limited practices this past week, and if he were to sit against Seattle, Jeff Wilson, Jr. would serve as the third back behind Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida.
ATL Atlanta • #25
Age: 24 • Experience: 2 yrs.
Injury
Concussion
Smith was placed on injured reserve this past week. His projected absence the rest of the way will open the door for Brian Hill and Kenjon Barner to serve as the primary backups behind Devonta Freeman.
Wide receiver injuries
MIN Minnesota • #19
Age: 29 • Experience: 6 yrs.
Injury
Hamstring
Thielen will miss Sunday night's showdown against the Cowboys after missing practice all week. Thielen was unable to make it out of the first quarter in Week 9 against the Chiefs after trying to play through the injury. Stefon Diggs will naturally become the primary target for quarterback Kirk Cousins, but impressive rookie Bisi Johnson and Laquon Treadwell should also see extra opportunities in the passing game.
IND Indianapolis • #13
Age: 29 • Experience: 8 yrs.
Injury
Calf
Thielen is active for Sunday's Week 9 battle against the Chiefs after practicing in limited fashion all week. That doesn't come as much of a surprise, as he was expected to play if he could get through pre-game workouts. Stefon Diggs turned in a 143-yard performance in Thielen's absence against the Redskins in Week 8, but considering he'd also eclipsed the century mark in three of the four games prior with Thielen by his side for most of them, Diggs' Fantasy outlook remains solid against Kansas City.
IND Indianapolis • #13
Age: 29 • Experience: 8 yrs.
Injury
Calf
Hilton will not play in Week 10 against the Dolphins, as expected. Zach Pascal, who brought in five of six targets for 76 yards and a touchdown versus the Steelers in Week 9 as the No. 1 receiver in Hilton's stead, will fill that role once again Sunday, with Chester Rogers once again bumping up to the No. 2 role.
DAL Dallas • #19
Age: 25 • Experience: 5 yrs.
Injury
Knee
Cooper is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Vikings after sandwiching a pair of limited practices around a missed session Thursday. As per early Sunday morning reports, Cooper is expected to suit up for the conference showdown.
CIN Cincinnati • #18
Age: 31 • Experience: 9 yrs.
Injury
Ankle
Green is out for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Ravens after missing practice all week. The news on Green has been trending downward this week, as he experienced swelling in his ankle after he put in some on-field work during Cincinnati's bye week. Tyler Boyd, Auden Tate and Alex Erickson are in line to serve as the top three receiver options for rookie quarterback Ryan Finley in his first NFL start.
BAL Baltimore • #15
Age: 22 • Experience: Rookie
Injury
Ankle/Thigh
Brown is questionable for Sunday's Week 10 battle against the Bengals after turning in a limited practice Friday following full Wednesday and Thursday sessions. As per early Sunday morning reports, Brown is expected to play.
IND Indianapolis • #15
Age: 22 • Experience: Rookie
Injury
Hand
Campbell will not play in Sunday's conference showdown against the Dolphins. Campbell regularly slots into the No. 4 receiver role, but with T.Y Hilton (calf) also out Sunday, undrafted rookie Ashton Dulin could serve as the third receiver versus Miami.
LAR L.A. Rams • #12
Age: 26 • Experience: 6 yrs.
Injury
Concussion
Cooks will not play in Sunday's interconference battle versus the Steelers. Cook has been meeting with multiple specialists about his history of head injuries, and his return date is undetermined. Josh Reynolds, who filled in effectively for Cooper Kupp over two separate stints during the 2018 season, will start alongside Kupp and Robert Woods against Pittsburgh.
TEN Tennessee • #84
Age: 24 • Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Hip
Davis is doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Chiefs after missing practice all week. With Davis looking unlikely to play, Tennessee's top three receiver options against Kansas City could well be Adam Humphries, A.J. Brown and Tajae Sharpe.
SEA Seattle • #10
Age: 28 • Experience: 4 yrs.
Injury
Not listed
Gordon is healthy and could play in Monday night's game against the 49ers, although that has not been officially confirmed by the team. Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf, Jaron Brown and David Moore have been serving as the top four wideout options for Russell Wilson, and it remains to be seen where Gordon would initially slot in behind starters Lockett and Metcalf when he does play.
PIT Pittsburgh • #19
Age: 22 • Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Foot
Smith-Schuster is questionable for Sunday's Week 10 battle against the Rams after suffering a foot injury in Friday's practice. Smith-Schuster's availability may come down to pregame warmups, and if he's unable to suit up, rookie Diontae Johnson and quarterback Mason Rudolph's college battery mate James Washington would serve as the top two wideout options for Pittsburgh against Los Angeles.
NYG N.Y. Giants • #87
Age: 26 • Experience: 4 yrs.
Injury
Concussion
Shepard will remain out for the Week 10 intra-city showdown with the Jets. Shepard appeared to have cleared concussion protocol ahead of last Monday night's game against the Cowboys before suffering a setback and missing the game. With tight end Evan Engram (foot) out against the Jets as well, Golden Tate, Darius Slayton, Cody Latimer and Bennie Fowler should slot in as the top four wideout targets for Daniel Jones.
NYJ N.Y. Jets • #18
Age: 31 • Experience: 10 yrs.
Injury
Hamstring
Thomas is questionable for Sunday's Week 10 matchup against the Giants after practicing in limited fashion all week. Thomas was able to play through the injury against the Dolphins in Week 9 and log 54 snaps, and without any reported setbacks this past week, he's expected to take the field.
Tight end injuries
SF San Francisco • #85
Age: 26 • Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Knee/Ankle
Kittle is doubtful for Monday night's divisional showdown against the Seahawks after missing practice all week. Ross Dwelley, who caught a touchdown against the Cardinals in San Francisco's Week 9 win, would serve as the top tight end for Jimmy Garoppolo if Kittle misses as is looking more likely.
NYG N.Y. Giants • #88
Age: 25 • Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Foot
Engram will miss Sunday's matchup against the Jets. Engram missed practice all week, and in his absence, Rhett Ellison will man the No. 1 tight end role for the Giants. Additionally, with wideout Sterling Shepard (concussion) also out for Sunday's contest, receivers Golden Tate and Darius Slayton as well as running back Saquon Barkley could all see extra targets.
TEN Tennessee • #82
Age: 35 • Experience: 14 yrs.
Injury
Ankle
Walker will miss a third straight game in Week 10 against the Chiefs after once again missing practice all week. Jonnu Smith will once again serve as the top option at the position for Ryan Tannehill against a Kansas City defense that's yielded the third-most receptions (58) to tight ends this season.
NYJ N.Y. Jets • #89
Age: 23 • Experience: 2 yrs.
Injury
Hamstring
Herndon is listed as questionable to make his 2019 debut against the Giants on Sunday, and as per early Sunday morning reports, he's expected to play. If Herndon makes good on that prognosis, he'll eat into the snaps of veteran Ryan Griffin.
CLE Cleveland • #83
Age: 24 • Experience: 3 yrs.
Injury
Knee
Seals-Jones is questionable for Sunday's Week 10 tilt against the Bills after missing practice all week. Seals-Jones' status will reportedly be decided in pregame warmups, with Demetrius Harris and Pharaoh Brown set to serve as the top two tight ends for Baker Mayfield should Seals-Jones sit.
GB Green Bay • #85
Age: 25 • Experience: 2 yrs.
Injury
Knee
Tonyan is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Panthers after finishing off the week with a missed Friday practice. Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis will handle tight end duties for Green Bay.
Kicker injuries
SF San Francisco • #9
Age: 36 • Experience: 15 yrs.
Injury
Quadriceps
Gould is doubtful for Monday night's divisional matchup against the Seahawks after missing practice all week. Chase McLaughlin, who helped fill in for the Chargers' Michael Badgley during the latter's absence with a groin injury earlier in the season and went 6-for-9 on field-goal attempts, is set to fill in for Gould if the veteran sits.
