NFL Week 4 Injury Report
Will some big names be back on the field for Week 4 of the NFL season? Here’s a look at the latest Injury Report for the key players.
McCoy to return?
After having to sit out last week with a rib injury, the Buffalo Bills could be getting running back LeSean McCoy back today. According to oddsmakers at BetNow.eu, the Bills are listed as a 9.5-point underdog at Green Bay today at 1PM ET. McCoy could give life to a Buffalo run game that hasn’t been stellar, as rookie QB Josh Allen is the current leading rusher. McCoy has just 61 yards on 16 carries thus far, but still has the potential to breakout. McCoy indicated during the middle of the week that he anticipated playing this week, but coaches wouldn’t go that far. He is a game-time decision as of now.
Jeffery to make debut?
The Eagles got back quarterback Carson Wentz last week and are anticipating getting Jay Ajayi back in the backfield today. However, the team was also hopeful to have Alshon Jeffery make his season debut this week as well The receiver had surgery for a torn rotator cuff in the offseason and was on track to play until suffering a virus mid-week that has him questionable for today’s 1PM ET kickoff at Tennessee. Oddsmakers are listing the Eagles as a 3.5-point favorite on the road. Jeffery had 57 catches for 789 yards and nine touchdowns last season and had three catches for 73 yards and a TD in the Super Bowl win. His presence would give another weapon to the Philly offense in need of some playmakers right now.
The Houston Texans could be without star receiver DeAndre Hopkins today due to multiple injuries. Hopkins is dealing with a thumb, ankle and hamstring issue that has caused him to miss some practice this week and earn a questionable tag for the Texans’ 1PM ET game at Indianapolis. Oddsmakers are listing Houston as a 1-point underdog against the Colts for today. The Texans are 0-3 on the season and in need of a win. Hopkins has caught 20 passes for 274 yards and a touchdown. As of late Saturday night, indications were that Hopkins would suit up for the game, but he will likely need to be cleared pregame.
