NFL Week 4 Injuries: Andy Dalton starts for Saints vs. Vikings, Zach Wilson returns for Jets vs. Steelers

Week 4 is at the forefront of the ongoing NFL conversation, mostly with Tua Tagovailoa’s brief hospitalization Thursday night after coming out of a Dolphins loss with head and neck injuries. Miami isn’t the only team uncertain under the center heading into the weekend. Some clubs are far healthier than others, and quite a few big names remain in doubt to wear on Sunday. rice field.

The Saints will be understaffed, at least at some capacity. The biggest absence will likely come in the center, where Winston is recovering more slowly than expected from lingering problems. On track to make his first start. He is expected to suit up, but could enter the pitch count alongside Mark Ingram.

The Vikings are much healthier and star running back Dalvin Cooke (Shoulders) is off the report after returning to full practice. Starting defenders Eric Kendricks (toes) and Harrison Smith (concussion) are ready too.

Former 49ers third-rounder Trey Salmon is set to make his debut as the Eagles’ 2nd/3rd RB in Scott’s absence, behind Miles Sanders and Kenny Gainwell.

Jared Goff lacks some of his best weapons at home, with Jamal Williams set to take charge of RB1 duties and DJ Chark alongside Josh Reynolds with St. Brown at his side. We plan to step up our activities. Tight end TJ Hockenson also has the potential to target additional looks in his game when he passes.

Giants Bears (-3)

  • Bear: to be decided
  • Giants: WR Kadarius Tony (hamstring), WR Wandale Robinson (knee), DE Leonard Williams (knee) OUT

New York’s receiving team will once again be without 2021 first-round pick Tony, who didn’t make an appearance in Week 3. Cowboys last week.

  • Titans: to be decided
  • Colts: S Justin Blackmon (ankle) OUT; DT DeForest Buckner (shoulder), LB Shaquille Leonard (back), QUESTIONABLE

Against Derrick, Henry & Co, the Colts’ defense could be without some key starters if Buckner doesn’t fit. The star’s interior defender didn’t practice leading up to the game. Leonard, meanwhile, could make his linebacker debut in 2022 after missing the first three games while recovering from back surgery. , coach Frank Reich revealed that it’s not 100% either way.

The biggest news here is the exclusion of Zach Wilson from the Jets report. This is because the QB is completely free from the knee surgery that kept him out in his first three games. He will make his debut in 2022, replacing backup Joe Flacco.

  • invoice: WR Jake Kumerow (ankle), DT Jordan Phillips (hamstring), CB Christian Benford (hand) out; WR Gabe Davis (ankle), TE Dawson Knox (back/hip), C Mitch Morse (elbow), OL Justin Murray (foot), DT Ed Oliver (ankle), CB Dane Jackson (neck), S Jordan Poyer (foot) questionable
  • Ravens: to be decided

After missing Week 3, Davis told reporters he would return to the field despite the questionable tag and serve as Josh Allen’s WR2 vs. Stefon Diggs. Both Morse and Oliver are precarious in the trenches. participated as a match time decision.

  • Cardinal: WR AJ Green (hamstring), DL Rashard Lawrence (hand), LB Ezekiel Turner (ankle) OUT; WR Marquise Brown (foot), WR Londale Moore (hamstring), C Rodney Hudson (knee), DE JJ Watt (calf) ), LB Xaben Collins (shoulder)
  • Panthers: RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh), WR Laviska Chenault Jr. (hamstring), DE Marquis Haynes (knee), CB Stanley Thomas-Oliver (Achilles tendon)

The Cardinals are still missing DeAndre Hopkins due to suspension, so this could be claiming the bottom of the receiver depth chart. With Green out and both Brown and Moore banged, reserve Greg Dorch got to see another barrage of targets from Kyler Murray, along with tight end Zach Aerts. Running back James Conner (knee) is also good.

Baker Mayfield will have a strong supporting cast at best, and McCaffrey “wants” to play despite practicing in a limited manner only once this week. Chenault, who appeared in the week, is a gametime decision.

Stay tuned for analysis.

  • Patriot: QB Mack Jones (ankle) QUESTIONABLE
  • Packer: to be decided

All indications are that veteran backup Brian Hoyer will start at QB, despite Mac Jones’ attendance at practice Friday. Jones’ ankle sprain has been classified as “severe” by multiple reports, and the sophomore starter did not show much mobility during his limited return to the field.
