InjuryMVS or Allison still uncertain

Davante Adams is OUT for Sunday vs. Oakland, Matt LaFleur says. Won’t divulge status of MVS or Allison yet. (Matt Schneidman on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Adams isn’t ready to return from his toe injury while Marquez Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee) and Geronimo Allison (concussion) are still up in the air. Allen Lazard could be a thing this week if all three of Green Bay’s wideouts sit against the Raiders. He received 5 targets last week against the Lions.

InjuryDislocated kneecap, but not significant additional damage

The MRI has confirmed the #Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes suffered a dislocated kneecap, but not significant additional damage, sources tell me and @JamesPalmerTV. He’ll seek additional opinions to be sure. The plan is for him to return this season after a brief absence. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: This sounds like the best-case scenario for Mahomes. Assuming additional opinions don’t stray, Mahomes is likely to miss a few weeks with Matt Moore holding the fort down until Mahomes returns. The Chiefs have a bye in Week 12. Adam Schefter suggests Mahomes is likely to miss three games.

Marquise Brown misses practice Friday

InjuryBrown headed for Inactive list

Not sure what Marquise Brown and Patrick Onwuasor will be listed at on final injury report tonight, but they haven’t been on field since Oct. 6. Harbaugh said if they don’t practice this week, they likely won’t play. So Ravens probably without both again Sunday. (Jeff Zrebiec on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: This will be the second straight week Brown has missed with his ankle injury. The Ravens used a heavy dose of Lamar Jackson in the running game last week to beat the Bengals. If he does decide to pass against the Seahawks, TE Mark Andrews should be his favorite target. Miles Boykin, Willie Snead and Chris Moore will be the top three wideouts if you’re interested.

InjuryConcussion

WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) not going to be cleared this week given situation, per sources. Out Sunday vs. Arizona. Even next week uncertain. Been practicing w/non-contact jersey but a lot to be taken into consideration considering he suffered 2 concussions in four-week span (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: The Giants will likely roll with Golden Tate, Darius Slayton and Cody Latimer as their top three wideouts in a good matchup against the Cardinals, even with Patrick Peterson back on the field. Tate figures to run the majority of his routes from the slot.
