NFL Week 10 injuries: Josh Allen, Kyler Murray and Matthew Stafford questionable for breakthrough games

The second half of the 2022 NFL regular season began Thursday night when the Panthers were able to hold off the Falcons at home, and we now have a full slate of Sunday games on deck for Week 10. That includes an international affair between the Seahawks and Buccaneers for the history books. For the first time, a regular season game will be played in Munich. Of course, it will be an early Sunday morning date, just like the rest of the slate.

As is the case every week, with a new group of matches comes a new collection of injuries for us to track. This week in particular, several quarterbacks have their status up in the air, so all eyes will be on them. As the teams wrap up the week of training, they’ve released their final injury reports and rolled out game statuses for Week 10. Below, you can find each of those reports and a breakdown of some of the biggest ones. wounds.

Seahawks at Buccaneers (-2.5), in Munich

Seattle is in good shape for this international face-to-face. Goodwin is officially listed as doubtful, but he was able to practice fully on Friday, which is an encouraging sign of his availability. Meanwhile, Gillaspia was the only other player listed on the final injury report and was ruled out after not training all week.

Brate is the only player listed on the Bucs’ final injury report to have made the trip to Germany. He’s been a full participant throughout the week, so it looks like he has a good chance of playing. Despite being listed as questionable all week, wide Mike Evans (ribs, ankle) does not carry a designation. It should also be noted that safety Antoine Winfield Jr. has approved the concussion protocol and will play.

The Vikings have had a minor injury report all season, but Tomlinson being out again is their first major player to miss a game in weeks. Starting center Garrett Bradbury (ankle) was a full participant on Friday after being restricted on Thursday. He did not receive an injury designation.

After missing the first two practices of the week, Allen returned to the field Friday in a limited capacity and was officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against Minnesota. Sean McDermott told reporters earlier on Friday that Allen’s status is really “hour to hour”, so it looks like he’s a real game call.

The promising news for Detroit is that running back D’Andre Swift not only does not carry an injury designation for this game, but he was able to practice fully for the first time in weeks on Friday. Meanwhile, Reynolds hasn’t been on the pitch at all this week, so it’s no surprise to see him already ruled out.

Jenkins being limited to Friday practice is something to watch for the Bears. He’s been the team’s best offensive lineman this year, a force in the running game. If he can’t go, Michael Schofield should start. No Vildor is going to cause the Bears any problems in nickel defense, especially if Johnson can’t play. Johnson is arguably the best cornerback on the team.

  • Broncos: TE Andrew Beck (hamstring), OLB Baron Browning (hamstring), WR KJ Hamler (hamstring) OUT; T Cameron Fleming (quad), S Justin Simmons (knee), CB Darius Phillips (ill), LB Nik Bonitto (ill), WR Kendall Hinton (ill) DOUBTFUL
  • Titans: LB Zach Cunningham (elbow), OLB Bud Dupree (hip), S Amani Hooker (shoulder), DE Jeffery Simmons (ankle), DB Josh Thompson (knee) OUT; CB Kristian Fulton (hamstring), DT Kevin Strong (ankle), QB Ryan Tannehill (ankle) DOUBTFUL

Hamler and Beck both suffered hamstring injuries in practice for the Broncos this week, which head coach Nathaniel Hackett will assess at the end of the bye week. Jonathon Cooper and Jacob Martin were the only outside linebackers on the Broncos’ roster who got to practice Friday, which could leave Denver starved at the job if Bonitto can’t get there this week.

The Titans have four defensive starters on this one, but the major status for Sunday’s game is Tannehill. The quarterback was limited in Friday practice. Head coach Mike Vrabel did not commit to Tannehill, but said the quarterback was “making progress.” If Tannehill misses his third game in a row, Malik Willis will start.

  • jaguars: S Rayshawn Jenkins (concussion) DOUBTFUL
  • Chiefs: WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen) OUT; RB Jerick McKinnon (shoulder, knee, hamstrings) DOUBTFUL

Jacksonville continues to be one of the healthiest teams in the NFL. Only Jenkins carries a designation entering Week 10 and he was restricted to practice on Friday. Tight end Evan Engram was listed on the injury report with a back injury, but has been training hard and is ready for Sunday.

Hardman hasn’t practiced at all this week due to an abdominal injury and will be sidelined in Kansas City’s Week 10 game against the Jags. Meanwhile, McKinnon was downgraded to a limited participant in Friday’s practice after being a full participant the previous two days. The pass catcher faces an array of injuries and is now officially questionable.

The bye week wasn’t enough for the Browns to get Njoku healthy and ready to play this game against Miami. This is the second game Njoku has missed due to an ankle injury he suffered against the Ravens in Week 7. With him sidelined, Harrison Bryant and Pharaoh Brown will be the best ends tight from the club. Meanwhile, Owusu-Koramoah will also miss their second game in a row.

Armstead did not participate in practice on Friday and was listed as questionable, but that has been normal on the injury report this year. He hasn’t usually trained more than once a week this year as she struggles with a toe injury, but he has played eight games. Jackson could also be in line to play his first game since Week 1, but he was limited on Friday.

Houston could get its two best wide receivers back in Week 10. Cooks and Collins were able to practice on a limited basis this week and are officially listed as questionable. Reeves-Maybin was also promoted to full participant on Friday, which bodes well for his playing prospects.

Golladay hasn’t played since Week 4 but is expected to be available Sunday against Houston. Golladay, who has largely disappointed since arriving in New York, has been confined throughout the week and is officially listed as questionable. Flott and Ximines have also been restricted all week. As for Neal, it’s the second game in a row he’s missed due to his knee injury.

None of the excluded players have trained this week, including Lattimore. As New Orleans continues to deal with a slew of injuries, they got an encouraging sign from Jarvis Landry. The veteran receiver does not carry an injury designation and is in line to play Sunday.

Jackson and Witherspoon didn’t train all week and have since been ruled out for Week 10. Dotson appeared on injury report Friday as a limited participant with an abdominal injury and is now listed as doubtful. Meanwhile, pass thrower TJ Watt told reporters he expects to play sunday and does not plan to be on any sort of instant count.

The major development for the Colts is Jonathan Taylor (ankle), who participated fully in practice Friday and did not receive an injury designation. Jackson will be out, so Zack Moss, and maybe Jordan Wilkins, will spell Taylor against the Raiders. Kylen Granson will be the only tight end if Alie-Cox — who was restricted on Friday — can’t go. Paye hasn’t practiced all week, so it will be a game-time decision.

The Raiders only have Perryman on the injury report, and he was restricted in Friday practice. Las Vegas will be without Darren Waller (hamstring) and Hunter Renfrow (oblique) as both players were placed on injured/reserve on Thursday.

Elliott may be questionable for the Cowboys, but he’s expected to play based on praise from Jerry Jones and Mike McCarthy. Dalton Schultz (knee), Micah Parsons (shoulder) and Michael Gallup (chest) were also cleared to play this week.

The Packers have three starters in Doubs, Campbell and Stokes, but have other starters who have not received injury designations. Allen Lazard (shoulder) and Sammy Watkins (knee) are available at wide receiver, Aaron Jones (ankle) will play, and Jon Runyan (knee) and Elgton Jenkins (knee) will play. Bakhtiari was restricted on Friday, so his status for Sunday will be monitored.

  • Cardinals: G Max Garcia (shoulder), C Rodney Hudson (knee) OUT; CB Byron Murphy (back), QB Kyler Murray (hamstring), LB Dennis Gardeck (ankle), T DJ Humphries (back), CB Christian Matthew (hamstring), WR Greg Dortch (groin) DOUBTFUL
  • Rams: RB Malcolm Brown (hamstring), LB Travin Howard (hip) OUT; NT Greg Gaines (elbow), G Alaric Jackson (knee) DOUBTFUL; C Brian Allen (knee), CB Robert Rochell (illness), QB Matthew Stafford (concussion) DOUBTFUL

The Cardinals have a monster injury list, starting with Murray — which is a game-time decision. Murray has been limited the past two days with a hamstring injury suffered last week. Murray’s mobility is limited, but he can stay in the pocket and play – according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury. The Cardinals will also be monitoring the status of Murphy, who hasn’t practiced all week but was still listed as questionable.

Stafford is the player to watch for the Rams as he will need to clear concussion protocol in order to play. Otherwise, John Wolford will start for Los Angeles. Los Angeles is getting reinforcements with right guard Coleman Shelton and running back Kyren Williams both active for Sunday’s game.

Allen is still ‘week-to-week’ with his injury, having not played since Week 7 – when he recorded just 22 snaps (he played 45 all year). Williams is still out with his ankle injury, missing his third game in a row. he hasn’t been placed on injured reserve, so that will be something to watch in Week 11. Joey Bosa hasn’t been activated from injured reserve, but there’s hope that it is available on Sunday. DeAndre Carter and Josh Palmer are the two best options at wide receiver this week. If Pipkins can’t go, both starting tackles (Rashawn Slater and Pipkins) will be out for Los Angeles.

Nick Bosa is the only starter expected to play on the 49ers defensive line. Javon Kinlaw could be activated by next week and Ebukam is doubtful for Sunday’s game. Drake Jackson could see more snaps, per head coach Kyle Shanahan. Deebo Samuel was not on the injury report.

  • Commanders: N / A
  • Eagles: N / A
