That’s Going to Leave a Mark – Week 13 Injury Report

Playoffs are right around the corner. Who can you count on being back in time? Should you consider playing them during your playoffs? Can we expect Nissan Stadium to be out of the concussion protocol? @JohnnyBGoodeDFF answers these questions and more!

Derek Carr – Concussion, 1-2 Weeks

Carr enters the concussion protocol. Likely miss at least one week.

Trevor Lawrence – Ankle Sprain, Week to Week

Lawrence is living proof that sometimes you just need to “walk it off!” This looked far worse than it actually turned out to be, and Lawrence has a legitimate chance to suit up Week 14. He may be slightly limited with regard to his mobility for a week or two. After avoiding catastrophic injury, he should be back under center.

Kenny Pickett – High Ankle Sprain, 2-3 Weeks

Undergoing the “tight rope” procedure, Pickett is slated to miss “a couple of weeks.” The goal for the team is no later than Week 18. Normally, this is when I mention that most teams with Pickett likely aren’t depending on him for the playoffs, but in this QB landscape managers are lucky to have a second QB to play. Make alternative plans for the playoffs if you can.

Derrick Henry – Head, Week to Week

Henry somehow avoided a concussion on this play. No word how the field at Nissan Stadium is taking the hit this week yet. Expect Henry back in Week 14 without limitations.

Brian Robinson – Hamstring, 2-3 Weeks

At this point in the season, we have to consider how these players are eased back in, and would we start these players in a win-or-go-home game? Brian Robinson stands to miss at least a week or two, putting him back right in the middle of your playoffs. When he returns, he is likely to initially show some decrease in fantasy production. It’s smart to make alternative plans if possible.

Rhamondre Stevenson – High Ankle Sprain, 3-5 Weeks

Stevenson is likely out for the duration of your fantasy playoffs after falling victim to the hip-drop tackle. With the season lost, it will be surprising if he’s not shut down for the rest of the season. Zeke Elliot suddenly becomes a potential playoff starting option.

Amari Cooper – Concussion, 1-2 Weeks

Most NFL players this season have missed at least 1 week. We’ve seen some linger, such as Treylon Burks. As long as Cooper can progress as “normal” through the protocol, expect him back Week 15.

Christian Kirk – Core Injury, Likely Season Ending

Seeming to be a sports hernia, this will likely sideline Kirk for at least one month. Usually, a player could return from this, but this late in the season, Jacksonville may just shut him down to prepare for 2024.

Puca Nacua – AC sprain, Week to Week

Likely a Grade I sprain, Nacua should be back Week 14. These injuries are a pain tolerance/swelling issue.

Christian Watson – Hamstring, 3-4 Weeks

Ladies and gentlemen, Generation Z’s Will Fuller. Jokes aside, and I can’t take full credit for that one, Christian Watson is no stranger to hamstring strains. At this point, this should be somewhat concerning for the young WR. If he can’t stay healthy, his dynasty stock will inevitably plummet. Watson likely won’t be back for any fantasy-relevant games. Green Bay has legitimate playoff hopes, so they may be conservative with their #1 WR.
