NFL Week 2 Injury Report
The NFL season enters into the thick of Week 2 today. What are the key injuries for today’s big games? Here’s a breakdown of who is out.
One game featuring a few key injuries is the San Diego Chargers hosting the Jacksonville Jaguars at 4:25PM ET. According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Chargers are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -3 points against the Jags. The over/under total is listed at 47.5 points. San Diego will be going into action without Keenan Allen, who suffered a torn ACL last week. The Chargers were a much lesser team last season after Allen got hurt, and the loss of him last week was certainly felt as the Chargers blew a 24-3 lead. The Jags will be without Chris Ivory in the backfield. He continues to battle an illness that left him out last week. The Jags had just 48 rushing yards last week in a loss to the Packers.
Another game with plenty of injuries has the Denver Broncos hosting the Indianapolis Colts at 4:25PM ET. Oddsmakers have the Broncos as a 6-point favorite at home. Denver didn’t have a ton of offense last week, but that could change as the Colts are dealing with a ton of injuries in the secondary. Vontae Davis is out with an ankle injury while Patrick Robinson is doubtful due to a concussion and Darius Butler is questionable with an ankle injury. Antonio Cromartie is also questionable with a hamstring injury. That should open up the passing game for the Broncos.
The New England Patriots are set to host the Miami Dolphins today at 1PM ET. Oddsmakers like the Patriots as a 6.5-point favorite against Miami today, but New England could be without Rob Gronkowski once again. Gronk is listed as questionable with a hamstring injury. Despite him missing last week’s game, the Patriots still beat the Cardinals on the road. Tom Brady continues to be suspended while defensive end Rob Ninkovich is also out for three more games. Miami comes into the game mostly healthy outside of receiver DeVante Parker, who is questionable with a hamstring injury.
