Monday Morning Trainer’s Room: Jameis Winston and Dez Bryant Highlight the NFL Week 9 Injury Report

Luckily, it was another slow week from an injury perspective.

Injuries are a part of the game, but for fantasy football, they’re a major part of the game. One player gets hurt and your whole roster could crumble if you don’t have a backup plan. We’re here to update you on the most fantasy-relevant injuries and how their team plans to move forward.

The Bucs were toast when Jameis Winston was “eating W’s” during his pregame speech, and they were officially done when Ryan Fitzpatrick was forced to start the second half after Winston was knocked out of the game with a shoulder injury. The quarterback has been fighting through a nagging shoulder injury throughout the season, but it looks like he re-aggravated it during the game. However, while on the sideline, Winston started a fight with Marshon Lattimore which could get his star receiver suspended. Overall, it was a shitty day for the Bucs and hopefully Winston is back for next week’s game.

Dez Bryant had the perfect matchup today against a below-average Chiefs secondary, but he was unable to do significant damage (six catches for 73 yards), as he left the game in the fourth quarter and did not return. According to @ProFootballDoc, it looked minor on film, but high ankle sprains are always tough to diagnose right away. If severe, Bryant could be out 4-6 weeks. We’ll keep you updated.

The jokes just make themselves at this point.

Cold Tub:

  • Terrance Williams had a monster game vs the Chiefs, but suffered a high ankle sprain. His status is unknown for next week
  • 49ers starting safety Jaquiski Tartt is done for the season with a fractured forearm
