NFL Week 2 Injury Report

NFL Week 2 Injury Report: Aaron Rodgers questionable vs. Vikings 9/16/18

Some big names find themselves on the injury report for Week 2 of the NFL season. Here’s a look at the latest news regarding the biggest injuries.

Rodgers questionable

The Green Bay Packers are once again dealing with an injury to their star quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. He suffered a sprained knee last Sunday and was able to play through it to beat the Bears, but is listed as questionable for today’s home game with the Minnesota Vikings at 1PM ET. According to oddsmakers at BetNow.eu, the Packers are still listed as a 1-point favorite at home against the Vikings. Rodgers has been limited most of the week in practice, but did go through Saturday’s practice. Most reports believe Rodgers will attempt to play, but his mobility is unknown. Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone last year against the Vikings and missed most of the season.

Big Ben expected to play

The Pittsburgh Steelers are already without Le’Veon Bell for another week due to his holdout. Now the team has quarterback Ben Roethlisberger questionable to play due to an elbow injury he suffered last week at Cleveland. Oddsmakers are listing the Steelers as a 5-point favorite at home against the Kansas City Chiefs for today’s 1PM ET contest. Big Ben was able to practice in full on Friday after missing most of the week, so expectations are that he will play today. Big Ben threw for 335 yards and a touchdown last week on the road in a tie with Cleveland.

Mariota questionable

Another quarterback that is dealing with an injury is Tennessee QB Marcus Mariota, who is also dealing with an elbow injury. The Titans are getting set to host the Houston Texans today at 1PM ET. Oddsmakers are listing the Titans as a 3-point underdog at home against the Texans. Mariota was able to practice on Wednesday, but then was limited on Thursday and Friday. It’s hard to know if that was just to keep the elbow rested, or if he was physically unable to practice. Signs also point toward Mariota playing, and the Titans will need him after already losing tight end Delanie Walker to the IR with an ankle injury and tackle Taylor Lewan for this game with a concussion.
