Mohamed Sanu Injury Updates

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) is not listed on the final injury report. He only got in limited practices on Wednesday and Friday, though, so he’s clearly at less than 100%. That makes Sanu a shaky Week 9 fantasy play.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) missed practice on Thursday after putting in a limited workout on Wednesday. Sanu played through this hip injury in Week 7, but the fact that he's missing time after the Week 8 bye is a serious concern. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu exited in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Bucs with hip injury. He was on the injury report this week with a hip, although it's unclear if this is related. We'll update Sanu's status when we learn more.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) is not listed on the final Week 7 injury report. He’ll play in Sunday night’s plus matchup against the Patriots. Sanu has averaged 7 targets in 3 full games this season and is in the WR3 discussion this week.

ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports that Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with his hamstring injury. Atlanta has a Week 5 bye, so Sanu figures to miss a game or 2. He averaged a healthy 7 targets per game over the first 3, so his absence will create extra opportunities for guys like WR Taylor Gabriel and TE Austin Hooper.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu is out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Bills with a hamstring injury. With WR Julio Jones also out, Atlanta is down to Taylor Gabriel and Justin Hardy as the top 2 WRs.

Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) is out for Sunday's game against the Saints. We don't have any details on the injury or know whether he'll be available for the playoffs. Gabriel's absence leaves Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu, Justin Hardy and Aldrick Robinson as Atlanta's top 4 WRs.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) put in a full practice on Friday and isn’t listed on the final Week 15 injury report. He’ll play against the 49ers on Sunday and figures to serve as Atlanta’s #1 WR with Julio Jones out. The groin issue adds some risk, but Sanu is certainly in the WR3 discussion.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu will be playing with a separated shoulder today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Sanu suffered the injury last week. He didn't practice on Wednesday but put in a limited workout on Thursday and was a full participant on Friday. We'll see how big a factor the shoulder is against the Panthers today, but Sanu is an extremely shaky fantasy starter.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu is not listed on the Week4 injury report. He’s good to go for Sunday’s game against the Panthers after leaving last week with a shoulder injury. Sanu has seen just 9 targets over the past 2 weeks and is a poor fantasy play.

ESPN's Ed Werder hears that Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) is expected to play against the Panthers this weekend. He was knocked out of Monday night's game shortly before halftime. We still don't have any specifics on his injury. We'll track his status throughout the week.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu suffered a shoulder injury in the 2nd quarter of Monday night's game against the Saints and will not return. He finishes with 3 catches on 4 targets for 31 yards. We should get an update on Sanu after the game or on Tuesday.

Falcons WRs Julio Jones (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Raiders. He put in a full practice on Friday and was removed from the final injury report, so that ankle shouldn’t be much of an issue. Mohamed Sanu (ankle) is also active and is in the WR3 discussion.

Falcons WRs Julio Jones (ankle) and Mohamed Sanu (ankle) were both full participants in Friday's practice and removed from the team's final injury report. They're good to go for this weekend's game against a Raiders secondary that just allowed 423 yards and 4 TDs. Jones is a high-end WR1, as usual, and Sanu is in the WR3 mix.

Bengals WR Marvin Jones worked with the 1st-team offense on Wednesday for the 1st time this offseason, per insider Paul Dehner.  Jones and A.J. Green were on the outside with Mohamed Sanu in the slot in 3-WR sets.  Jones got off to a rough start this summer, missing time with minor injuries and getting called out by HC Marvin Lewis.  But he's come on lately and is still our bet to win Cincinnati's #2 WR job.  Jones is an intriguing late-round flier in fantasy drafts.

Bengals WR Marvin Jones put in only limited workouts when the Bengals opened OTAs Tuesday. "I'm good. I just have to clear the physical," Jones said afterward, per ESPN.com. Sounds good, but Jones failed the physical last week that would have cleared him for full practice. It's only noteworthy in May because he missed all of last season with foot and ankle injuries. Jones will need to prove this summer that he's all the way back and that we can count on him to stay on the field. More likely, however, he'll remain a late-round option in your fantasy football draft with sizable injury risk. Iffy status for Jones could help the outlooks for TE Tyler Eifert, WR Mohamed Sanu and even RB Giovani Bernard by potentially leaving targets on the field.

NFL insider Albert Breer passes along word that Bengals WR A.J. Green is dealing with ligament damage under his big toe. Breer says the injury is “lingering” and notes that the team will be “careful” with their young star. Green’s highly unlikely to suit up vs. Baltimore, but we’ll have official word by 12pm EST on Sunday. Mohamed Sanu looks poised to see 8+ targets for the 4th straight game.

The Bengals have placed WR Marvin Jones on IR, ending his 2014 season.  He played in exactly 0 games this year, missing the first 3 with a broken foot and the last 2 with an ankle injury.  We still don't know the extent of the ankle injury and whether he'll need surgery, but Jones should be back to 100% for the offseason program.  He'll have a battle on his hands with Mohamed Sanu for #2 WR duties.  Jones is still worth stashing in dynasty leagues.

Bengals insider Geoff Hobson hears that the team "may think about surgery" for WR Marvin Jones' ankle.  Jones injured the ankle in practice a couple weeks ago and has yet to get back on the field.  We haven't heard any details, but it's obviously more than a minor injury.  Jones is only worth stashing in deep fantasy leagues at this point.  Mohamed Sanu's stock continues to rise in the meantime.

The Bengals have ruled WR Marvin Jones out for Sunday's game against the Panthers with his ankle sprain.  Jones had been listed as questionable but missed practice all week.  No fantasy owners should have been planning on using him.  This confirmation of his status boosts the upside for WR Mohamed Sanu a bit, as the Bengals also seem likely to be without WR A.J. Green.  RB Giovani Bernard also only looks better as a receiver given all the injuries.  And an offense likely to go run-heavy might even pump some fantasy value into #2 RB Jeremy Hill in a positive rushing matchup.
