Gameday Injuries: Week 11
Gameday Injuries: Week 11

This column is meant to offer our best predictions on what players will/will not play, as of 8 AM ET on Sunday. For the official active/inactive reports, please see our Latest NFL Player News.

The Week 11 injury report is actually light in some areas where it's recently been bursting at the seams, as both the quarterback and running back positions have by and large avoided major medical mishaps. However, the one notable quarterback absence is expected to produce the highly anticipated starting debut of one of the most electrifying rookies of the 2018 draft class. There's still a good amount of walking wounded among receivers as well, so let's dive into the overall early Sunday morning outlook heading into Week 11:

QUARTERBACKS

The one quarterback sporting an injury designation heading into Week 11 is a notable one, as Joe Flacco (hip) carries a doubtful tag and failed to practice all week. Early Sunday reports confirm Flacco is not expected to play, and that Lamar Jackson and not Robert Griffin III will be under center for his first career start versus the Bengals. A separate Sunday report indicates that Flacco won't need surgery for his injury but could well miss the Week 12 game against the Raiders as well. Meanwhile, the landing spot for Jackson in his NFL debut as a starter could be a soft one versus Cincinnati, considering they're tied with the Falcons for second-most fantasy points per game allowed to quarterbacks in standard scoring formats (27.78).
