Injury MRI today to determine how much time he’ll miss

From @GMFB: Washington Football Team QB Ryan Fitzpatrick suffered a hip subluxation, knocking him out several weeks and likely meaning a stint on IR. He’ll have an MRI today to determine how much time he’ll miss. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Fitzmagic left in the second quarter giving way to Taylor Heinicke (11-15, 122-1-0). We can expect Heinicke to get the start in the next few games (NYG, @BUF, @ATL, NO) with the possibility of him becoming the permanent starter if Fitz is out for the year.

Injury 6-72 line on 7 targets in Week 1

#Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy has a high ankle sprain, source said. X-rays negative. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Jeudy was taken to the locker room on a cart but it appears he escaped a season-ending injury. He posted a 6-72 line on 7 targets before exiting. He’ll likely miss multiple weeks. Expect Tim Patrick and KJ Hamler to pick up the slack.

Saquon Barkley’s role still a question mark

Injury Eased in?

#Giants RB Saquon Barkley will play today vs. the #Broncos, fully cleared by doctors following a strong week, sources say. That said, Barkley – recovering from a torn ACL – will be eased in and used sparingly. He’ll get snaps, but the team won’t put him at risk so early. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Not exactly what Barkley owners want to hear but at the same time we’ve seen instances in the past where these “limited role” tweets don’t actually come true. Unless you have a true viable RB1 option, it’s probably OK to keep Barkley in your lineup.

Odell Beckham Jr. a gametime decision

Injury Signs point to him playing

Odell Beckham Jr. looked good at practice this week but didn’t take full reps, and hasn’t had any contact all summer – which is why Browns want to see how he feels pre-game today before making any decisions on his status vs. the Chiefs, per source. It will be about how OBJ feels. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: We’ve been under the assumption this week that OBJ will be out there in a late-game against the Chiefs. It’s likely that will be the case, but there is still some doubt about his availability. Ian Rapoport is reporting he’s expected to play. OBJ owners should have a plan B in place just in case.
