This NFL season has been a rough one for many teams, with key players and starters suffering from injuries in each week so far. This includes star quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who tore his Achilles in his first game with the New York Jets earlier this season, as well as star running back Nick Chubb, who suffered a season-ending knee injury. At no surprise, Week 11 saw some similar results.
NFL Week 11 Injuries:
Derek Carr, New Orleans Saints
Thankfully for the Saints, they have a Bye week in Week 11 so Carr will be able to rest after he faced a shoulder injury and concussion last week. Carr has 2,231 yards on the season with 10 touchdowns, 4 interceptions, and a QBR of 50.8. But with these injuries, it is not looking promising for him in Week 12.
DeShaun Watson, Cleveland Browns
Watson left Sundays game in a walking boot, despite playing through his ankle injury, and apparently, his starting status is not questionable. Watson led his team to a shocking victory in Baltimore on Sunday, gaining 37 yards on eight carries and throwing for 213 yards and a touchdown.
Garrett Wilson, New York Jets
In a scary moment for the Jets, Garett Wilson exited the field with an elbow injury. Thankfully, he returned to the field wearing a sleeve and it does not appear that this will impact his game.
Taylor Heinicke, Atlanta Falcons
Heinicke was not playing his best football on Sunday leading up to his fourth quarter exit with a hamstring injury. He had just 55 yards passing leading up to his injury. When the Falcons return from their bye week, it is likely that Desmond Ridder will be at quarterback.
Alexander Mattison, Minnesota Vikings
Mattison was not having the best day of his career, posting 24 yards on eight carries before leaving the game with a concussion. Ty Chandler took over and put up 45 yards on 15 carries and a touchdown.
