Mike Wallace Injury Updates

Eagles WR Mike Wallace was carted off the field in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Bucs with an ankle injury. He's done for the day. That leaves Philly with WRs Nelson Agholor, Shelton Gibson, Kamar Aiken and DeAndre Carter. Not ideal.

Ravens WR Mike Wallace (concussion) is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Dolphins. It'd be a surprise if he was cleared 4 days after suffering the head injury, but Wallace was listed as a limited participant in all 3 practices this week. WR Breshad Perriman (concussion) is also listed as questionable but put in a full practice on Wednesday. WR Michael Campanaro (shoulder) didn't practice all week and is listed as doubtful. We'll find out the statuses of all 3 guys by 7 pm ET tomorrow.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco (back) remains sidelined. We're now 4 weeks into what the team originally called a 1-week injury. OC Marty Mornhinweg gave a rambling, useless response when asked on Wednesday about Flacco's timetable for return. We've still heard nothing to suggest that he won't be ready for the season opener, but such an extended absence with a back injury for a 32-year-old QB is a concern. Flacco isn't worth drafting outside of 2-QB leagues. And if he's not back on the field by the end of August, we'll have to start pushing WRs Jeremy Maclin and Mike Wallace down the WR rankings.

The Ravens have signed WR Jeremy Maclin to a 2-year deal. A cap casualty in Kansas City, Maclin joins a Ravens squad that's missing a whopping 345 targets from a year ago. He figures to compete with Mike Wallace for the target lead this year -- although Breshad Perriman could also have a say in that battle if he takes a step forward. Maclin endured a disappointing, injury-stricken 2016 campaign but posted an 87-1,088-8 line the previous year. He's still only 29. And he has experience in Ravens OC Marty Mornhinweg's system, playing for Mornhinweg in Philadelphia for his first 4 NFL seasons. Maclin averaged 65 catches, 863 yards and 6.5 TDs across those years.

ESPN reports that Ravens WR Breshad Perriman suffered a partially torn ACL in his left knee. He'll reportedly see Dr. James Andrews on Monday to see if the injury will require season-ending surgery. A PCL injury in his right knee cost Perriman his entire rookie season. A pair of tattered knees isn't a great way to start your pro career. We'll see about the final prognosis, but you certainly shouldn't draft Perriman right now. If he misses the season, Mike Wallace, Kamar Aiken, Steve Smith and whoever wins the starting TE spot get at least a slight fantasy boost. Baltimore's training camp will be among the most interesting to watch.

The Ravens signed WR Mike Wallace to a 2-year deal worth $11.5 million, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Now 29, Wallace is coming off a disappointing year in Minnesota that produced a 39-473-2 line. But he’s always proven durable, while he should mesh well with Joe Flacco’s deep ball accuracy. Wallace also provides insurance for Steve Smith and Breshad Perriman, who both return from injuries.

According to the Miami Herald, the deep ball connection between Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill and WR Mike Wallace has been “comparable” to their 2013 showing. The duo hooked up on just 6 of 36 targets that traveled 20+ yards downfield last year. A lack of progress is discouraging, but remember that Wallace recently returned from a minor hamstring injury. We’re also a month away from Week 1, so there’s time to improve. Wallace looks like a low-end WR2 in fantasy.

Dolphins WR Mike Wallace returned to practice on Monday. Wallace missed time with a hamstring injury, but it was never considered serious. Miami simply played it safe with their top playmaker. The 28-year-old is a prime bounce-back candidate in new OC Bill Lazor’s offense.

Dolphins WR Mike Wallace has been sidelined this week with a hamstring injury.  Wallace described it as "tight," but beat writer Armando Salguero reports that Wallace will be out "at least until next week."  As always, we'll keep a close eye on his status.  Hamstrings are tricky, especially for speed guys like Wallace.

Dolphins insider Barry Jackson confirms that WR Mike Wallace (hamstring) is expected to play against the Chargers this weekend.  Wallace popped up on the injury report on Thursday but was able to put in a limited practice on Friday.  Despite the 4:05 pm ET kickoff, we'd feel comfortable getting Wallace into fantasy lineups as a boom-or-bust play.

Dolphins WR Mike Wallace was added to Thursday's injury report with a hamstring.  It's unclear when the injury occurred, or even if there is one.  Miami might just be limiting Wallace's practice reps.  We'll have an update tomorrow.  Wallace has a plus matchup this weekend against San Diego's 29th-ranked WR defense.

Dolphins WR Mike Wallace (groin) is listed as questionable on the Week 3 injury report.  He put in full practices on Wednesday and Thursday but was limited on Friday.  It's worth noting that Wallace battled a groin issue in August.  But there's no been indication that he's in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Falcons.  It's a 4:05 pm ET start, but we'd feel comfortable keeping Wallace in fantasy lineups.  

Dolphins WR Mike Wallace returned to the field Wednesday after missing more than a week with a groin injury.  He promptly caught his 1st long TD from QB Ryan Tannehill all camp.  Wallace said he expects to play in Friday's game against Jacksonville.

Dolphins WR Mike Wallace remains sidelined with his bum groin.  It's not believed to be a serious injury, but Wallace has been out 10 days now.  He missed the Hall of Fame Game and seems unlikely to play in Miami's 2nd exhibition.  It's becoming a concern considering Wallace is learning a new offense.  He was off to a slow start even before the injury.  We just nudged Wallace down our WR rankings.

Steelers WR Mike Wallace (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns.  His injury isn't serious, but he has little reason to play through it in a meaningless finale.  Wallace finishes the 2012 season with 64 catches, 838 yards, and 8 TDs.  The catches, yards, and yards-per-catch average are all well down from 2011.  Wallace is a free-agent this offseason and is unlikely to return to Pittsburgh.  Meanwhile, Emmanuel Sanders will start this weekend and is a WR3 candidate in fantasy.

Steelers WR Mike Wallace (hip) did not practice on Wednesday.  While the injury isn't serious, Wallace has little reason to push himself to play in a meaningless season finale.  Look for Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders to start out wide against Cleveland on Sunday.

12:45pm EST 12/24/12

Steelers WR Mike Wallace suffered a hip strain on Sunday.  It sounds like a relatively minor injury, but Wallace might be held out of Pittsburgh's meaningless season finale against the Browns.  If that's the case, the impending free-agent has likely played his last game in a Steelers uniform.  Emmanuel Sanders will move into the starting lineup and be a viable WR3 in fantasy if Wallace sits out.

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin announced that QB Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder, ribs) will start against the Chargers this weekend.  “He has been above the line in all areas,” Tomlin said after Thursday's practice. “Really, the only question we can’t answer is taking a hit. Obviously that will be answered in the stadium on Sunday. I am extremely comfortable with his ability to work the field both vertically and horizontally. He has great velocity on his ball. We’re ready to go.”  Besides Big Ben still needing to take a hit, the fact that he's returning from an injury to his throwing shoulder makes him an extremely risky fantasy start.  We'd leave him on the bench 1 more week.  Roethlisberger's return is good news for WRs Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown though.

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin revealed that WR Mike Wallace suffered a knee injury in Sunday's game against the Ravens.  Wallace never exited that one though.  And while Tomlin said Wallace might be limited in practice this week, he confirmed that he should play against the Chargers on Sunday.  It sounds like a minor issue, but we'll keep an eye on him.  Wallace has gone cold over the past 3 games but will be worth sticking with in fantasy if QB Ben Roethlisberger returns this week.
