Is it going, Everybody? Not at the student Doc here.
Talk few injuries.
Let some people trickle in here having a disagreement with the lead.
May complaining about the rules that have been in place since July.
Don't you hate those kinds of people? And they need me right now.
He his beef is that he thought we were kidding when we said that the playoff system works the way that it does, because what we do is we take the previous week score and we use We use that score plus the current weak score.
Uh, had a playoff scores, and he's just now becoming aware of the situation.
And so that's what I'm dealing with right now.
But that's not why I'm here.
I'll talk about some injuries.
So first of all, obviously, um, Delmon Cook, What's going on? We don't cook.
Here's the deal.
My dogs panting in the corner to have got a lot going on right now.
The first thing that I saw Fallon Cook is that he took the handoff.
Um, they ripped his reign.
They ripped, ripped his right, um, ball from his right hand which could be a labouring tear.
They essentially it looks like what could have happened is that he tore apart his labor and potentially just located a shoulder.
It also looks like what potentially could have happened is he fell in the left shoulder and has an A C issue because of that.
So we we've yet to get any type of any type of update.
I haven't seen anything, at least so that's essentially what we're looking at right now.
Um, so right now, as I'm watching who's in right now, it's still Madison.
So he's not coming back.
This probably is not.
Let's not looking good for cooks returns me.
That's not good.
If he dislocated his shoulder, depending on the severity, he could miss another cup a couple of weeks or the whole season.
It just depends how bad it is.
I'm just watching the Xavier Rhodes is temper tantrum.
It depends if that's actually what happened, so we just have to stand by.
You could potentially be with that Dalek.
OK, k, I could potentially be with that down cook for the rest of the playoffs.
Good thing we have Alexander Madison.
Because you cuff.
We discuss cuffing a number of times.
At least I'm discussed coming a handcuffing your studs a couple of times.
So those are the matters those best the way that you get through stuff like that.
Hopefully you have Alexander Madison.
This is not looking good for cooks.
You wish you sort of hope for the best.
Um, you you hope for the best, but I'm just This isn't looking good.
Hopefully you can come back to it.
That just adds to the issues that they have with feeling dealing, being out.
It adds, Now that digs is a little bit thinking, being that banged up this well, we don't really know what's going on with that man a lot going on for the Vikings who are staying afloat in the playoff picture.
But how many more of these can I take? You know, you hate you hate to, uh, you need to pour it on for them.
But I forgot to introduce you to my sweater since I had so much going on is my, um, holiday sweater.
Generally s just means and festive.
So let's talk more about injuries here.
Adam Baylin could potentially come back next week.
I was just talking on a podcast earlier and saying that, um, T y Hilton is a wild card to me.
If I have him on my invention, I somehow make it to the fantasy championships.
Um, maybe if you need, like, a Hail Mary play, maybe if you need if you need, I don't know, like, uh, adore throw that's gonna get you two touchdowns and 100 yards and those were the That's when I would use to help.
But I'm not using him Even if he comes back in a couple weeks just to hear if you're still, I guess this week 13.
Yeah, you're back in week 15.
I don't want to use them.
I don't trust him that calf injuries.
Obviously continuing to hammer him, you have to hit the reset button.
He's at least you know, got pushed back at least 50% in terms of the tissue healing times.
After he reinjured it, he wasn't ready to come back.
So that's what happens.
Unfortunately, you seem the same thing with that I'm feeling in his hamstring.
This is his third concussion that's do***ented that I've seen.
So he's definitely a candidate to be out next week.
And considering how Finn tight end is, that obviously hurts.
You can just, you know, it's tough to feel the tight, and there are a ton of streamers.
But those options were really, really bad.
So that's sort of the situation with with Olson.
So prepare to be without Olson this week.
Golden taste should be back.
He don't come from what I've seen, he doesn't have a concussion.
Ah, concussion issue, Um, as courageous soccer cousins to get picked off.
Digs, huh? Golden Tate doesn't have concussion, a concussion history.
So, um, you know, he could be back this week.
Evan Ingram, Eman Ingram.
I don't know if he even came back to practice.
I think he did come back to practice.
He's touch and go.
I've talked about how those foot injuries are.
So, um, you are so iffy because there's so much somebody ligament.
So many joints bones in the foot that it's difficult to know exactly what it too weak.
Speaking of another due this week to week, uh, nothing's really changed for mass Stafford.
He, uh, he's considered We tweak again.
Now that they put Jeff Driskel on i R.
It's really difficult to imagine that staffers gonna be back and effective for you down the fantasy playoffs down the street of stress here.
I don't see it happening.
I don't see him coming back.
I just I think it's weird they haven't put him on I r yet continued considering as vertebral fractures.
That's all of them.
Another dude coming back to practice this week is next water.
It says jelly af I'm sure, sure, earlier.
So if you like it, um ah, super M c l spring.
I think this is week four.
I think this is yeah, relatively certain this is week four.
So he's got a chance, considering he's had this issue before.
And, uh, and the the Falcons are just out of the playoffs is completely I wouldn't be surprised necessarily if he gives us another week, but, you know, check back in with me this week so that you know exactly what's going on with this practice.
Updates that stuff like that.
Ah, lot of people are freaking out about Julio Jones but he's fine.
I think he just sort of got banged up a little bit in that a c joint when you landed awkwardly on it.
Those were painful.
But considering it didn't dislocate or anything like that, then you know, even even, ah, Cutter said that he's probably gonna be back this week.
And then if it wasn't a quick turnaround, um, that he would have played, which I mentioned on the fancy free gist podcast.
We got Julio Ingram. Hooper.
You saw the Monte Freeman come back.
Am I missing the boat on any of these big injuries? I don't think so.
So we saw and I did want to talk about a little bit about these concussions and sort of everything that goes down with them.
Um, when Chris Carson just a minute, just our last earlier in the first half got hit in the head.
What I was saying on Twitter is that just because those you know, they're not ruled as a concussion, it does not mean that he does not have a brain injury because it's all on a spectrum.
I thought that was sort of an interesting situation there, but Obviously, he came back in, so he's doing all right.
Um, who else here doing this off the cuff here, as is that Carson or Penny? Penny just stumbles in vans, and I have him on my badge.
Still not entirely sure I want to do with him.
But if you have any injury questions just dropping down in the comments, let me look at my list.
Here we talk. Okay.
Um, another do that.
I wanted to talk about that.
I talked about fading last week.
Uh, is that hurts? And Szaggars is in a situation where his hamstring sore.
He didn't look like himself.
He didn't have two touchdowns, and I guess he was overthrown.
He dropped another one.
But it is a game of inches.
Like I said, it's corny cliche.
That is when a player is suffering from a hamstring injury or any type of men treat all it really does make them miss that step, that my dog's gonna bark just a second least.
I think it shows up.
I'll let the dog park you can.
No, he's not barking way.
Have warned on super light.
Um, but you saw Earth miss a step.
You saw him like a sudden drop that end zone past, and it's not that he wasn't himself, but, um, he wasn't himself, and these injuries will do that.
I do expect him to sort of take it easy this week, and hopefully he can come back and produce the same the way that we expect.
But it's not always Garrity, and considering that you probably don't have a lot of other options, that's just something you're gonna have to roll with.
Another situation we can talk about is the situation with situation of Darryl Williams, Damian Williams and that message back the old Kansas City, Uh, General Williams was out with a hamstring injury.
We know that anywhere from zero through weeks is what you're dealing with when a player interest there hamstring.
And considering that he's sort of the third option on that team behind Damian Williams, LaShawn McCoy, it's not so much of move immediately.
It's not something that next us immediately in this, Damian Williams has ruled out again.
That's such a muddle backfield that it might be time for Darwin Thompson to actually start taking some touch is taking on a bigger role in the offense.
LaShawn McCoy is LaShawn McCoy, but he's just he's like 31 32.
I don't think it's necessarily the dude to take all the carriers and touches in that backfield.
And Damian Williams, especially PS.
Cartilage damage could still be out again.
And so the missile.
Shawn McCoy and Darwin Thompson then I'm definitely trying to take the upside with Darwin.
Darwin Thompson this week said somebody to consider for your waiver wires tomorrow night.
I mean, he was okay.
James Connor has a chance to come back this week.
So this is another.
This would be, like the second or third week or moved out after the last injury.
Um, I don't I'm not necessarily trusting James Connor down the stretch here.
That injuries obviously, um, is obviously a lot more, Um, serious.
Then I think they wanted to let on in the first place, considering he reinjured.
And that doesn't help. That sets him back.
And now that apparently the Steelers are in playoff contention, who saw that coming third string quarterback? No Jews.
You know James Connor, and they're sitting here, you know, looking at a playoff spot, potentially if they went out, I think that they could actually trying to bring Connor back in Week 15.
If it's not this week, just because every game matters, you want your best players on the field for them.
And so those air some.
That's something to consider when a team doesn't have anything to play for, like the Falcons and Julio Jones that you saw, you really start to wonder why you're gonna activate these players in the first place.
I think you did see that with Falcons on Thursday, the Thanksgiving game.
But the Steelers were on the opposite boto, where every game matters every point matters, so I wouldn't be surprised if they necessarily if they didn't bring James cornerback instead of wedding abreast.
Um, so pick up Darwin Thompson.
Hopefully, you already had a Dallas Carter.
If you're is Akers owner, um, Delon Cook situational Dalvin Cook, he's still not back on the field.
I don't know what's going on unnecessarily.
Yeah, that's still Madison out there.
So those are some things that you need to look at.
You need tohave Alexander Madison on the roster.
If you still have fab leftover, he's 100% fab.
Dude, if you Yeah, he's still sitting on the bench not doing anything.
And I have a gun in your reports about it.
So, um so those are the things you have to worry about? Pretty concerned about Alan Cook at this point.
Hopefully, it's just a one.
A two week injury.
But this definitely can be something that sets him out for the rest of the season.
You're in good shape. You have Alexander Madison.
I'm not wonder seconds.
Uh, certain that will give him the full workload.
I mean, there he goes, catching another screen past, but that could be the case.
You have Damian Williams.
Wait until the middle of the week for me to talk about what is practice statuses.
See what Darryl Williams status is.
These are all things like I said, injury things that are super important to keep track of as your as the season starts to rule into the playoffs.
But again, if you have any other injury questions or anything like that, follow me on Twitter at F s student Doc, follow me.
You scored that touchdown.
That was not digs.
That's not what I needed.
Um, follow me on Twitter.
That's my central hug.
Um, and if you like, I said, if you have any questions, you can drop him down in the comments.
Um, so far in the tracking my accuracy, I think I'm sitting like 73 74%.
You guys are curious.
That's also up on my Twitter page.
I'm always down to answer questions.
I'm always down to, you know, answer any dams on specific players or anything like that.
So just let me know Whatever questions you have, I try to be as transparent as I can be, obviously, because I'm keeping track of my own accuracy.
But it looks like the Vikings just scored on Seahawks, so this might be a better game than anticipated.
Now that's certainly up.
My end up being a bigger shootout than we anticipated.
So do you have any questions of if you missed any of the injury stuff that I talked about? Any of the dudes that I talked about? Send me and direct message? Um, we'll announce later out of the student again and let me know what you think
