Week 7 Injury Updates & Videos

By Jared Smola | Updated on Fri, 19 Apr 2024 . 1:27 PM EDT

Heading into week seven of the 2020 NFL season there were a ton of injuries to keep track of.

Thursday nights game saw a couple injuries that bear monitoring. The New York Giants Devonta Freeman suffered an ankle injury of unknown severity, possibly a high-ankle sprain. Eagles DeSean Jackson suffered a significant ankle injury similar to teammate Dallas Goedert, likely a combination of non-displaced ankle fracture as well as high ankle sprain, and should likely miss at least six weeks. However there is some good news, and that Jalen Reagor is expected to be activated off IR and should play in week eight.

Several of the consensus top 20 running backs were injured in some capacity, and Miles Sanders, Mark Ingram, Joe Mixon and Aaron Jones were all added to that list over the past week.Aaron Jones suffered a calf injury late in the week and was inactive for Sunday’s game.

In the early games Dak Prescott’s replacement, current Dallas Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton suffered a head injury secondary to a dirty hit that knocked him out of the game. He was diagnosed with a concussion.

Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock appeared to have suffered a knee injury, however this was only a minor concern and he didn’t miss any time.

Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay sustained a concussion.

The San Francisco 49ers ran all over the New England Patriots, but 49ers got even more injured in the process. Losing Deebo Samuel to a hamstring strain for a couple weeks, as well as fill in running back Jeff Wilson Jr., shortly after scoring his third touchdown of the day, suffered a high-ankle sprain, and is likely going to short term IR. On the opposite side of the ball Patriots’ wide receivers Julian Edelman and N’Keal Harry both struggled, Edelman with a knee injury, and Harry appear to have sustained a concussion.

The most significant injury of the day belonged to Odell Beckham Jr., who unfortunately suffered a season-ending torn ACL after trying to track down an opposing defender who just intercepted a pass.

Jaguars wide receiver Dede Westbrook appears to also have sustained a torn ACL. The Jets finally got to active stud rookie Denzel Mims after suffering double-hamstring strains early in camp, but were without Jamison Crowder due to a groin injury and then Breshad Perriman sustained a concussion.

The Steelers Diontae Johnson, who has struggled with injuries, was targeted 15 times, scoring two touchdowns but unfortunately suffered what appears to be a minor ankle injury.

The Chargers Virgil Green in the middle of catching a touchdown pass suffered an ankle injury and possible fracture.

The Sunday night game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Seattle Seahawks was a shootout. Unfortunately many of the running backs in this game sustained injuries. Kenyan Drake suffered a high-ankle sprain and is likely out at least 3 to 4 weeks, and will go to temporary IR. It’s Chase Edmonds time.

Three of the four Seattle Seahawks running backs sustained injuries. Stud Chris Carson sustained a mild midfoot sprain, commonly described as a LisFranc, that should keep them out at least two weeks, possibly longer. His back up Carlos Hyde sustained a hamstring injury, and third string running back Travis Homer sustained a knee injury. Both Hyde and Homer are questionable for week eight.

In the Monday night game, the Los Angeles Rams were without tight end Tyler Higbee who is dealing with a hand injury. Running back Darrell Henderson was also dealing with a thigh injury, but played well and Robert Woods a groin injury but managed to play. Bears stud wide receiver Allen Robinson was being evaluated for a concussion at the end of the game.
