Week 4 Injury Report

Happy Saturday evening everyone. Here are this week's players to monitor with @fantasydocs.

Kareem Hunt

Kareem Hunt has a groin strain which is not like a hamstring strain. Once it heals there is a much lower risk of reinjury. Also encouraging that he logged a limited practice Friday. I would think he would suit up this weekend but worth having a backup plan. With Mixon a late addition to the injury report picking GIovani off the waivers would be a pro move.

Joe Mixon
Late additions to the injury report are never good but Mixon has a history of playing through injuries and he practiced all week. The designation is a chest injury which is likely a rib bruise which can typically be played through. I think he starts but you should have Gio as a plug and play in case.
Terry Mclaurin
Scary Terry suffered a thigh injury yesterday in practice and officially did not play today but took part in exercises with atc’s off to the side. He likely had a quad contusion and the DNP Friday is concerning. He's a gametime decision and I think he sits this week.
 
Julio Jones
Julio logged a limited practice friday and still has 2 more days until Monday. I expect him to play Monday but season long he concerns me. He is ageless but time comes for everyone and it seems like Ridley is exploding. Hamstrings also have a tendency to flare up and recur within the same season especially in older players. I would be trying to move Julio on his next blow up game.
 
Davante Adams
Pretty much the same story as Julio aside from a lower season long risk based on age and I wouldn't try and trade Adams. He practiced in pads friday and is on track to light up the Falcons with them giving up the second most yards to wide receivers.
 
Calvin Ridley
RIdley is having that glow up of a season and currently is the overall WR1. I think he suits up this weekend with him practicing friday. It seems like he has a low ankle sprain which wouldn't concern me season long. Fire him up with confidence.
 
Deandre Hopkins
Any other player and missing the last 3 practices would be a high chance of sitting. But Dhop has only missed 2 games in his career and as mentioned above low ankle sprains can be played through. Luckily he's got an early game so if he is a sit then you can plug isabella, russell gage(who should definitely play) or anthony miller who showed a great rapport with Foles.
