NFL Week 6 injuries: Rob Gronkowski, Lavonte David out for Bucs’ game vs. Eagles; Kyler Murray limited
The NFL regular season is flying by, as we are already in Week 6. There are several intriguing matchups this week, as Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens play host to Justin Herbert and the red-hot Los Angeles Chargers, Aaron Rodgers gets his first crack at rookie Justin Fields and the Arizona Cardinals look to remain undefeated against Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns.
Injuries are unfortunately a part of the game of football, and some teams have been hit worse than others. Below, we will examine all midweek injury reports and break down the final injury report for “Thursday Night Football.” If you have a question about a player’s status, this is the place to be. All odds come courtesy of Caesars Sportsbook.
Gronkowski is still dealing with his internal/rib issues, and he will miss a third straight game. He’s not the only starter the Buccaneers will be without on Thursday, as David and Winfield have also been ruled out. Gronk and David did not practice all week, while Winfield was listed as limited in all sessions. The Bucs have a couple of other starters listed as questionable, but Jensen and Pierre-Paul were full participants in practice on Wednesday, which bodes well for them potentially suiting up.
Johnson won’t play due to a personal matter, but the Eagles will also be without tight end Dallas Goedert, who was placed on the COVID-19 list earlier this week.
Tua Tagovailoa returned to practice Wednesday but his status for Week 6 is still unclear. Jacoby Brissett (hamstring) was limited along with corner Byron Jones (Achilles) and tight end Adam Shaheen (knee). Xavien Howard (shoulder, groin) and DeVante Parker (shoulder, hamstring) did not practice.
The Jaguars were without receiver Marvin Jones on Wednesday, but the team noted that it was for non-injury reasons. That left linebacker Myles Jack (back) as the only player missing due to injury. Offensive linemen
