NFL Week 12 Final Injury Report: Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) will be a game-time decision, according to reports
We’re entering Week 12 of the 2021 NFL season, and injuries are once again a factor in some of the big games next weekend. There are fewer games this Sunday due to three Thanksgiving games, but there are still a bunch of injury updates to watch out for before the weekend.
As teams submit their final injury reports for the week, let this be central so you know who’s in, who’s out and whose condition can still be maintained before the game even starts. Below you’ll find every injury report and breakdown of what it all means for Week 12.
- Titan: WR AJ Brown (chest), OG Nate Davis (concussion), LB Rashaan Evans (ankle), LB David Long Jr. (hamstring) RB Jeremy McNichols (concussion) DT Tear Tart (ankle) RA; OLB Ola Adeniyi (hamstring), LB Jayon Brown (quad), CB Greg Mabin (ankle), TE Geoff Swaim (concussion), CB Elijah Molden (groin) CAN QUESTIONS
- Patriots: P Jake Bailey (knee), DT Christian Barmore (knee), LB Ja’Whaun Bentley (rib), CV Trent Brown (calf), RB Damien Harris (ancient), TE Hunter Henry (ancient), LB Dont’a Hightower (ankle), TE Jonnu Smith (shoulder), RB Rhamondre Stevenson (knee) HAVE QUESTIONS
Titans has seven excluded or problematic starters to play on Sunday. Injuries are on the rise for the AFC No 1 seed, and the biggest name on their injury report this week has to be Brown, who has been ruled out with a chest injury. He hasn’t practiced all week, and his absence will be enhanced with Julio Jones still on IR. This Titans team lost to the Jets earlier this season when they were without Brown and Jones, and now Ryan Tannehill do not have Derrick Henry to work off.
The Patriots have a total of nine players listed as problematic, but all nine were at least involved in Friday’s training. New England are on a winning streak largely due to their home games, and it’s worth noting that both Harris and Stevenson are facing injuries. The same goes for tight end, as both Henry and Smith are week-long limiters with neck and shoulder injuries, respectively.
Cordarrelle Patterson is active after he was restricted throughout the past week with an ankle injury. Jones dropped Friday in real terms – never a good sign. He’s important to Atlanta’s coverage in midfield, which could be a problem against Dan Arnold, who was heavily involved for Last Jags.
Teams used their top full-backs against Kyle Pitts when split late in the game, so what Jags has to do without Griffin could lead to rookie’s first big performance in weeks.
The Panthers’ injury report will be mild in Week 12, as Miller is the only player assigned an injury.
As for the Dolphins, Campbell and Shaheen didn’t practice all week, and were eliminated. Williams attempted to make it on Wednesday, but sat out on Thursday and Friday, and was also disqualified. Jones is the only player on the questionable list for Miami, and he has been in limited training all week.
Ebron’s absence means there’s more to the rookie tight finish Pat Freiermuth against Cincinnati. Haden used DNP-LP-LP this week. Most important, TJ Watt will return to the field for this match after returning to full training on Friday. Watt missed the team’s Week 11 game after sustaining an injury against Detroit in Week 10.
If there’s any place where the Bengals can overcome trauma, it’s likely in a wide pick-up, where they have considerable depth.
Brown will miss another game for the Buccaneers as he continues to deal with an ankle injury sustained with the Eagles. Marpet hasn’t worked out all week with an abdominal injury, but has yet to be ruled out. Keep an eye out for White, as he has practiced two out of three sessions this week, but as a limited participant.
The Colts have two stars listed as problematic, but Nelson and Leonard both entered full practice on Friday, which bodes well for them starting this Sunday.
Miles Sanders and Boston Scott will probably handle most of the rush work in Howard’s absence, despite the return rookie Kenneth Gainwell can integrate into the dribble, as he did earlier in the season.
The Giants need a bad win, but they could be missing some key players up front. Shepard has been ruled out, but Toney is suspected with a quadriceps injury after not training for a whole week, and Barkley has an ankle problem after only participating in limited participation all week.
- Jet plane: RB Michael Carter (ankle) RA; DL Folorunso Fatukasi (leg), WR Corey Davis (groin), DL John Franklin-Myers (hip), DL Shaq Lawson (wrist), LB CJ Mosley (shoulder), DL Nathan Shepherd (elbow) HAVE QUESTIONS
- Texans: DL Jordan Jenkins (knee) RA; WR Davion Davis (sick), DB Lonnie Johnson Jr. (sick), DL Jonathan Greenard (leg), WR Nico Collins (hip) QUESTION
The Jets will not have their young star back this Sunday, as Carter has been ruled out because of his ankle injury. He’s not the only starter that could be sidelined, as Davis is under question with a groin injury, as are Lawson and Mosley on the defensive side.
It seems like some kind of error is going on in Houston, as Davis and Johnson both have medical problems.
- Charger: S Alohi Gilman (quadricep), CB Asante Samuel Jr. (concussion) RA; OG Matt Feiler (ankle), DB Trey Marshall (ankle/hip) HAS QUESTIONS
- Broncos: S Kareem Jackson (neck), OT Bobby Massie (ankle) DOUBLE; RB Mike Boone (hip), DE Shelby Harris (ankle), WR Tyrie Cleveland (hamstring) QUESTIONABLE
Chargers without Samuel Jr in the subgroup will be harmed. He hasn’t trained for a week due to a concussion. The Broncos did not rule out any players on Friday, but Jackson and Massie both missed training on Friday and are highly suspicious.
- Vikings: OG Wyatt Davis (ankle) RA; CB Bashaud Breeland (groin) CAN QUESTIONS
- 49ers: RB JaMycal Hasty (ankle), DL Maurice Hurst (calf) RA; RB Elijah Mitchell (rib/finger) DOUBTFUL
Breeland was also named questionable last week and ended up playing 88% of the shots against the Packers. He can definitely help Minnesota against Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk.
Hasty will miss another game while Mitchell is in doubt. It looks like the 49ers can once again rely on Jeff Wilson Jr. and Samuel in the running game.
- Rams: CB Dont’e Deayon (thigh), WR Ben Skowronek (return) QUESTIONS
- Packers: OT David Bakhtiari (knee), WR Malik Taylor (abdomen) RA; CB Kevin King (hips/knees) DOUBLE; LB Rashan Gary (elbow), RB Aaron Jones (knee), WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) HAVE QUESTIONS
The Rams are relatively healthy after their goodbye week. As for the Packers, Aaron Rodgers hasn’t trained all week due to a toe injury, but he was not assigned to play. It looks like this is something he will have to deal with for the rest of the season, so expect to see his name on the injury report every day from here on out. Jones, who has limited participation all week, will be the time decision maker for Sunday’s game, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. If Jones is absent, the Packers’ running game will rely on AJ Dillon back in sophomore year, who amassed a total of 97 yards in his debut.
- Brown: WR Anthony Schwartz (concussion) RA; CB Troy Hill (neck), WR Donovan Pe People’s-Jones (groin) HAS QUESTIONS
- Ravens: WR Miles Boykin (finger), OT Cedric Ogbuehi (thigh) RA; CB Anthony Averett (thigh), WR Marquise Brown (thigh), DE Calais Campbell (concussion), CV Patrick Mekari (ankle), FB Patrick Ricard (hip/leg), CB Jimmy Smith (neck), CB Chris Westry (thigh), DT Brandon Williams (shoulder), CB Tavon Young (leg/knee), TE Nick Boyle (knee) HAS QUESTIONS
Pe People-Jones is once again suspected of playing with a groin injury, as he missed the game against the Lions last week. Baker Mayfield is still listed with shoulder, foot and knee injuries. He didn’t practice on Wednesday, but was fully engaged on Thursday and Friday. The Browns expect Kareem Hunt and Jack Conklin to play once both players are activated on Saturday.
Raven has 10 players listed as problematic for Sunday, but quarterback Lamar Jackson is not one of them. He is listed on the injury report with his illness, but still participates in full training all week. His top expansion opportunity, Brown, has been limited all week because of a problem in his thigh, and on the other side of the ball, Campbell hasn’t trained at all because of the concussion.
Seattle Seahawks Football Team (PICK) at Washington Football Team
- Seahawks: CB Tre Brown (knee), T Jamarco Jones (back), G Damien Lewis (elbow), RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring), RB Travis Homer (calf), OUT
- Football team: CV Sam Cosmi (hip), C Tyler Lawson (knee) RA; TE Ricky Seals-Jones (hip) DOUBTFUL; WR Adam Humphries (hips), WR Curtis Samuel (groin) QUESTIONS
The Washington football team is expected to have two key players back for Monday night’s home game against Seattle Seahawks Football Team. Receiver Curtis Samuel and tight ending Logan Thomas Washington coach Ron Rivera is expected to be in the squad after missing significant time through injury. Rivera said that both players will be limited to one point in the game against Seattle.
