NFL Week 1 Injury Notes

  • 49ers WR Deebo Samuel was placed on IR over the weekend (he has a chance to return after Week 3). While he won’t play, the rest of the team will despite concerns that the wildfires, orange sky, and air quality in California could postpone the 49ers-Cardinals game.
  • Washington will be without top cornerback Kendall Fuller (knee injury) vs Philadelphia. Ronald Darby will likely be tasked with covering Desean Jackson.
  • Bears running back David Montgomery is expected to play against the Lions, per NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport. Montgomery had been dealing with a groin injury.
  • Mike Williams appears likely to play, Rapoport adds. The wideout is dealing with a shoulder injury and as of Saturday night, was expected to sit out.
  • The Ravens may be without cornerback Jimmy Smith for the game against the Browns. The 32-year-old is reportedly having back spasms and is considered questionable.
  • Eagles tackle Lane Johnson is dealing with an ankle injury and was designated questionable to play entering the day, though Mike Garafolo of NFL Network is reporting that Johnson will try to suit up. Philadelphia will be without several players against Washington, including Mile Sanders.
  • Patriots wideout N’Keal Harry is good to go for the team’s Week 1 matchup against the Dolphins. Harry caught just 12 passes during his rookie season, though without Mohamed Sanu in town, the second-year pro is likely to see a bigger role.
  • Mike Evans is expected to play but be on a pitch count, as we previously passed along.
