Week 13 Major Injuries Report from Sunday

This Sunday unlike Week 12 was not light at all in terms of of major injuries to key fantasy players. The injuries started from very early in day with Matt Forte going down and continued through Sunday Night Football with Kevin Smith. The following are the important players that suffered major injuries in Week 13 and their fantasy implications:

Matt Forte- the early prognosis from Sunday on the injury that forced him out of the game is that a suffered a Grade 2 MCL knee sprain with a timetable of 2-4 weeks, but more will be known after the MRI on Monday. Marion Barber is the pickup for Week 14 if he is still available.

Kyle Orton- was hurt in the very first play with the Chiefs after he replaced Tyler Palko. According to Chris Mortensen, Orton's finger injury on his throwing hand has been diagnosed as a dislocated right index finger. If he can play through the injury, he could start for Kansas City going forward.

Andre Johnson- injured his left hamstring, not the right one that required surgery early in the season. Johnson is scheduled for a MRI on Monday, but early signs are that it is not as severe as the previous injury. Expectations are that he will at least miss Week 14.

Nate Washington- injured his ankle during the game, but there has been no update on his condition. Even before the injury, Damian Williams was already seeing increased targets and stands to benefit from any absence with Lavellle Hawkins.

James Starks- was carted off the field in the second quarter with an ankle injury. There has been no update on his status.

Kevin Smith- left the game during the third quarter after aggravating his high ankle sprain. Smith's status is expected to by updated during coach Jim Schwartz's Monday press conference.

A fantasy sport (also known as rotisserie, roto, or owner simulation) is a game where participants act as owners to build a team that competes against other fantasy owners based on the statistics generated by the real individual players or teams of a professional sport. Probably the most common variant converts statistical performance into points that are compiled and totaled according to a roster selected by a manager that makes up a fantasy team.
