On the finish of the Steelers’ Sunday night time loss to the Chargers, Conner suffered a decrease leg harm. He limped off the sector with help and went to the locker room, showing to be in lots of ache and failing to return to the sport.

In accordance with ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin mentioned that Conner suffered a decrease leg contusion. It is unclear precisely what the extent of the harm is and the way lengthy it would preserve Conner out. However on the very least, his standing for Week 14 towards the Raiders is questionable at finest.

If Conner cannot play, rookie Jaylen Samuels would be the subsequent man up at RB for the Steelers. Samuels caught a TD after Conner left the sport final week, so he can have some upside if he sees a excessive quantity of touches. That, plus his twin eligibility at RB/TE for Yahoo leagues makes him an intriguing goal on the waiver wire forward of Week 14. Stevan Ridley is also concerned, however Samuels figures to have probably the most worth.

A.J. Inexperienced harm replace

In his first recreation again with the Bengals since Week 8, Inexperienced appeared to worsen the toe harm that had bothered him for a majority of the previous month. He was carted off the sector in seen ache after struggling a non-contact setback

Given the character of the harm and the truth that the Bengals aren’t wanting more likely to make a playoff push, this harm may finish Inexperienced’s season. With Inexperienced out, Tyler Boyd will resume his position because the No. 1 receiver in Cincinnati. He has carried out effectively this season, so he ought to proceed to provide as a WR2, particularly if he continues to get garbage-time alternatives within the coming weeks.

Greg Olsen harm information

In accordance with ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Olsen suffered a ruptured plantar fascia harm towards the Buccaneers and limped off the sector. The foot harm will finish Olsen’s season and can proceed to deliver questions concerning the long-term well being of his foot after struggling main accidents to it in consecutive seasons.

Rather than Olsen, Ian Thomas will step up as the highest TE in Carolina. Whereas Thomas has some upside, he is arduous to suggest trusting in Week 14, even in an honest matchup with the Browns. Try our Week 14 TE rankings to seek out out who you ought to be counting on instead of Olsen this week.

Matt Breida harm replace

Breida served because the No. 2 again for the 49ers of their matchup towards the Seahawks. This was a shock, as Jeff Wilson Jr. noticed a majority of the snaps and motion, and it wasn’t precisely clear why this was the case. Nonetheless, in accordance with Eric Department of the San Francisco Chronicle, Breida aggravated an ankle harm in pregame warmups and appeared to worsen it additional throughout the recreation, leaving for good early within the third quarter.

Breida has been coping with ankle accidents for a lot of the season and at this level, it is unclear when and if he’ll get again to full energy. He has continued to play by accidents all through the season, but it surely’s simply so tough to belief him due to his balky ankle. Shifting ahead, Breida needs to be handled as a high-risk RB2 — offered that he may even get well from this ankle harm forward of Week 14.

If Breida misses time, Wilson would be the new lead again in San Francisco and needs to be added in all fantasy codecs. Alfred Morris, who has been inactive in current weeks, can even have a bit extra of a task within the backfield, however Wilson would possible be the true workhorse. That is one thing we did not count on to be writing at any level this season.

Chris Carson harm information

Carson dislocated his finger within the Seahawks’ blowout win over the 49ers final week. In accordance with John Boyle of Seahawks.com, Pete Carroll mentioned that Carson “needs to be OK,” however on the identical time, it’s arduous to belief Carroll to present an correct depiction of that, as he tends to be optimistic about gamers coming back from accidents.

Even when Carson would not miss time, plainly Rashaad Penny will begin to see an even bigger workload for the Seahawks. He outperformed Carson on Sunday and had a pleasant TD run that showcased his burst and athleticism. Penny will most likely work extra towards a good cut up with Carson earlier than the first-rounder takes over the lead-back position.

All that mentioned, Carson homeowners ought to look to handcuff him with Penny in the event that they have not already carried out so. Penny might be a strong RB2 if he sees extra quantity, which appears possible if Carson misses time. However once more, it is arduous to belief Pete Carroll to present Penny touches, as Mike Davis may see extra motion if Carson is damage. We’ll (hopefully) know extra concerning the full extent of Carson’s harm later within the week.
