Injury report roundup: J.J. Watt questionable

Print

Giants wideout Odell Beckham Jr. will miss another day of practice with a hamstring issue.

Not much has changed since Thursday, although Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is keeping the possibility of Beckham playing against the Eagles on Monday alive. On Saturday, Beckham was listed as questionable on the Giants' injury report.

The team will switch up their practice schedule this week and go through a full practice on Sunday, which gives him one more opportunity to work out this week before game day.

Rueben Randle will practice for a second straight day, which provides Eli Manning and offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo with at least some peace of mind. If Beckham cannot go, Dwayne Harris would likely elevate to the No. 2 role.

"He's coming along," Coughlin said, via The Bergen Record.

With Victor Cruz's calf injury continuing to linger, the team will also keep the possibility of a receiver signing open. Hakeem Nicks and Wes Welker worked out with the club two weeks ago.

Here are other injuries we're keeping tabs on Friday and Saturday:

1. Ben Roethlisberger is out for the Steelers, according to NFL Media's Aditi Kinkhabwala.

2. J.J. Watt was added to the Texans' injury report on Saturday with an illness and is questionable to play against the Jaguars.

3. Andrew Luck (shoulder) is officially questionable for Sunday's game versus the Patriots. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports Luck will play, however. A source told Rapoport that Luck could have played last Thursday against the Texans if needed.

4. Sammy Watkins, Tyrod Taylor and Percy Harvin are questionable for the Bills. LeSean McCoy is probable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Rapoport reports EJ Manuel will get the start Sunday for the injured Taylor. McCoy is also slated to play Sunday, Rapoport reports.

5. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said "we don't know" when asked about linebacker Bobby Wagner (pec) suiting up against the Panthers. Wagner is listed as questionable for Sunday.

Carroll also told reporters Marshawn Lynch will "play a lot" on Sunday.

6. Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and cornerback Aqib Talib returned to practice. Juwan Thompson, DeMarcus Ware and Evan Mathis remain sidelined. Ware was ruled out while Talib and Mathis are questionable.

7. Bears wide receivers Alshon Jeffery (hamstring), Eddie Royal (ankle) and tight end Martellus Bennett (quad) are questionable against the Lions. Bennett was injured during Thursday's practice, coach John Fox told reporters. Per Rapoport, Jeffery is slated to return Sunday. Bennett is also expected to play, a source told Rapoport.

8. Browns have ruled out Joe Haden (concussion) and Tashaun Gipson (ankle) against the Broncos.

9. Redskins coach Jay Gruden said wide receiver DeSean Jackson (hamstring) went through individual drills Friday. He was downgraded to out on Saturday and won't play. He didn't make the trip to face the Jets.

Gruden announced left tackle Trent Williams is in the concussion protocol and will not play Sunday.

10. Panthers defensive end Jared Allen (back), linebacker A.J. Klein (concussion) and offensive tackle Daryl Williams (knee) are out for Sunday's game.

Luke Kuechly is not expected to play every snap in his return from a concussion.

Defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks and linebacker Paul Posluszny are probable. Marqise Lee and Bernard Pierce are out.
