After an action-packed Week 1, we're set for a big Week 2 that unsurprisingly has a notably larger injury report than that of the season's opening slate of games. However, the majority of concerns are found within the wide receiver position, as key Fantasy players at quarterback, running back and tight end are healthy for the most part. There are a couple of big names already ruled out, however, so without let's dive into the health outlook as of early Sunday morning:

Jacobs (toe) will not play in Sunday's AFC clash against the Steelers after missing practice all week. In his absence, offseason signee Kenyan Drake, who handled six carries and five targets in Week 1 versus the Ravens, will step into the lead-back role, while Peyton Barber and undrafted rookie Trey Ragas will serve as complementary options.

Swift (groin) is questionable for Monday night's NFC North clash against the Packers but managed to finish the week with a full practice Saturday. It appears Swift is trending toward suiting up, and Saturday beat writer reports confirm that likelihood as well. Were Swift to suffer a setback before the final kickoff of the Week 2 slate, Jamaal Williams would step into a much bigger role against his old Green Bay teammates.

If Brown, who turned in a 6-69-1 line in the opener, sits out, fellow wideout Sammy Watkins and tight end Mark Andrews would be slated to see bigger passing game roles, while second-year man Devin Duvernay (groin) would also bump up to No. 2 wideout duties if he was able to suit up.
