Week 2 fantasy football injury report

This week’s key game-time decisions: WR Kadarius Toney, WR Allen Lazard, WR Michael Pittman Jr., TE George Kittle, WR Mike Evans, RB Leonard Fournette, WR Russell Gage, WR Julio Jones, RB Mark Ingram, RB Alvin Kamara, RB D’Andre Swift

ARIZONA CARDINALS 
WR Rondale Moore
(hamstring) has been ruled out again. TE Zach Ertz (calf) practiced Thursday and Friday and is good to go.

ATLANTA FALCONS 
RB Damien Williams (ribs) has been ruled out.

BALTIMORE RAVENS 
OT Ronnie Stanley (ankle) drew a doubtful outlook and was limited Friday. RB J.K. Dobbins (knee) practiced all week and appears good to go despite a questionable tag.

BUFFALO BILLS – Monday night
No injuries of fantasy relevance.

CAROLINA PANTHERS
No injuries of fantasy relevance.

CHICAGO BEARS 
WR Velus Jones (hamstring) is doubtful and didn’t practice Friday.

CINCINNATI BENGALS 
WR Tee Higgins
(concussion) managed a full practice in Friday, which is a great sign for his Week 2 status after leaving the opener with a concussion. TE Hayden Hurst (groin) practiced fully all week and is good to go.

CLEVELAND BROWNS
No injuries of fantasy relevance.

DALLAS COWBOYS
QB Dak Prescott (thumb) and WR Michael Gallup (knee) are out this week. Prescott is expected to miss three to four weeks. Gallup is week-to-week. WR James Washington (foot) is on IR and out at least two more weeks with a broken foot.

DENVER BRONCOS
WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) continues to be among the walking wounded and has been ruled out in Week 2.

DETROIT LIONS
RB D’Andre Swift (ankle) didn’t do anything until a limited practice Friday. He’s questionable, and it could go either way.

GREEN BAY PACKERS 
WR Allen Lazard (ankle) was limited in practice all week and has been listed as questionable. There is a positive feeling on him this week, though. Consider him on the plus side of questionable.

HOUSTON TEXANS 
No injuries of fantasy relevance.

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS 
LB Shaquille Leonard (back) and WR Alec Pierce (concussion) have been ruled out this week. WR Michael Pittman Jr. (quadriceps) was limited Wednesday and didn’t practice at all Thursday and Friday. He’s questionable, but that’s not a promising picture to paint.

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS 
No injuries of fantasy relevance.

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS – played Thursday night
No injuries of fantasy relevance.

LAS VEGAS RAIDERS 
No injuries of fantasy relevance.

LOS ANGELES CHARGERS – played Thursday night
WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) was out for Week 2. QB Justin Herbert (ribs) suffered a fracture to rib cartilage in the Thursday game and is day to day. He has time to recover for Week 3.

LOS ANGELES RAMS 
WR Van Jefferson (knee) is out. RB Kyren Williams (ankle) suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 1 and is expected to be out four to six weeks.

MIAMI DOLPHINS 
RB Salvon Ahmed (heel) was limited all week and draws a questionable tag.

MINNESOTA VIKINGS – Monday night
No injuries of fantasy relevance.

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS 
QB Mac Jones (back, illness) had a back ailment in Week 1, and he was tagged with an illness Thursday but came off the report Friday.

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS 
RB Mark Ingram (ankle), RB Alvin Kamara (rib), WR Tre’Quan Smith (shoulder) and QB Jameis Winston (back) are all questionable. They were all limited Friday, but this feels like a roster charade game.

NEW YORK GIANTS 
WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) was limited Thursday and Friday and has been deemed questionable. WR Wan’Dale Robinson (knee) was ruled out.

NEW YORK JETS 
QB Zach Wilson (knee) will be out once again this week.

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES – Monday night
No injuries of fantasy relevance.

PITTSBURGH STEELERS 
LB T.J. Watt (pectoral) will miss a month of action. He tore the muscle itself and not the tendon, which would have ended his season. If everything goes well, Watt could be back in four to six weeks. RB Najee Harris (foot) is good to go after some limited action early in the week.

SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS 
TE George Kittle (groin) finished with a limited session in Friday and is a true game-time decision. Err on the side of caution and have someone ready again.

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS
RB Kenneth Walker (abdomen) managed a full session in Friday and is good to go.

TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS
WR Chris Godwin (hamstring) has been ruled out. OT Donovan Smith (elbow) is doubtful, and that’s bad news for QB Tom Brady’s blind side. They stopped throwing the ball late in the Week 1 game to keep him upright. OT Tristan Wirfs (abdomen) is questionable. WR Mike Evans (calf), RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring), WR Russell Gage (hamstring), WR Julio Jones (knee), WR Breshad Perriman (knee) – in what feels like half the team – are questionable. They were all limited Friday, but none of them truly feel in danger of missing.

TENNESSEE TITANS – Monday night
No injuries of fantasy relevance.

WASHINGTON COMMANDERS
No injuries of fantasy relevance.
