SUMMARY

  • Justin Fields
  • PJ Walker
  • Joe Mixon
  • Leonard Fournette

Let’s get to it.

1. Justin Fields

UPDATE 2: Fields (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Jets.

UPDATE: Fields has revealed to reporters that he has a separated shoulder as well as partially torn ligaments in his non-throwing shoulder.

Fields is expected to return to practice today, according to head coach Matt Eberflus.

Fields suffered a shoulder injury in last week’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons but played through it.

Following the game, it was discovered that Fields had a dislocated non-throwing shoulder. That report was later debunked.

If Fields is unable to play against the New York Jets in Week 12, backup Trevor Siemian will get the start. That is something no one wants to see.

2. PJ Walker

UPDATE 2: Walker (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Broncos.

UPDATE: Sam Darnold has been named the Panthers’ starting quarterback for Week 12.

Baker Mayfield took over at quarterback for the Panthers in Week 11 while PJ Walker was out with an ankle sprain, and boy, was he bad.

We don’t know what path the Panthers will take at quarterback, but according to head coach Steve Wilks, we’ll learn more about Walker’s status during Wednesday’s practice.

We’ll know how Walker’s week off has helped his ankle at that point.

3. Joe Mixon

UPDATE 2: Coach Zac Taylor noted Friday that Mixon (concussion) won’t play Sunday against the Titans, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals’ official site reports.

UPDATE: Mixon suffered a concussion during last week’s victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers and did not return.

Mixon didn’t do much before leaving after scoring five touchdowns in his previous game.

Even so, there has to be some concern about his availability in Week 12 against a hot Tennessee Titans team.

To play, Mixon will obviously have to go through the NFL concussion protocol.

We’ll provide more information as practices continue this week.

If Mixon is unable to play, Samaje Perine will receive the majority of the reps against an elite Titans run defense.

4. Leonard Fournette

UPDATE: Fournette (hip) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Browns, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers’ official site reports.

We’ll learn more about the severity of Fournette’s hip injury when the Bucs return to practice on Wednesday, but with the bye week in Week 11, Fournette’s status is in doubt.

According to Deepak Chona, a medical professional, depending on the type of hip injury, players are usually out for no more than one week.

According to the Buccaneers’ most recent practice report, Fournette was a limited participant today.

Fournette is expected to play in Week 12, according to all reports, but his continued practice participation should be monitored.
