IDP Injury Report: Thanksgiving Games
London Fletcher, WAS (ankle): After tweaking his ankle in the earlygoings of last week’s game versus the Eagles, Fletcher has sat out of practice this week. He will test it for the first time during pregame warmups on Thanksgiving Day, and will have to overcome a very short week in order to prevent his 234 game streak of consecutive games from snapping.
Brandon Meriweather, WAS (knee): Brandon Meriweather made his presence known in a big way last Sunday, but that is all IDP owners will see out of the aggressive safety this season. He tore his ACL late in the game and will miss the rest of the season.
Jay Ratliff, DAL (groin): Ratliff is only a play in deep leagues with DT designations, but he should be a go on Thursday despite being held out of practice on Tuesday for precautionary reasons.
Louis Delmas, DET (knee): After being held out from action once again last week, Louis Delmas returned to practice and should play this Thursday barring a setback. He is listed as “questionable” on the injury report.
Johnathan Joseph, HOU (hamstring): Joseph has been battling lower body injuries all season, and suffered a hamstring injury against the Jaguars. He did not run during Tuesday’s practice, and will be a game-time decision versus the Lions this week.
Chandler Jones, NE (ankle): Jones exited early in Sunday’s blowout versus the Colts with an ankle injury. Though the team did not practice on Monday, the team indicated that if they had, Jones would not have been well enough to give it a go. Consider his status in doubt this week despite the injury report ruling him “questionable.”
Patrick Chung, NE (shoulder): Chung was inactive last week despite indications that he could have been healthy enough to give it a go. His status again remains something of an unknown aside from him appearing “questionable” on the injury report. Chung owners should have insurance for him by now, and would be advised to continue with that alternative this week.
