CLEVELAND BROWNS @ BALTIMORE RAVENS

Browns tight end David Njoku injured his ankle in the third quarter and did not return. He was seen leaving the stadium in a walking boot, but likely just for precaution. I believe he is dealing with a Grade 1 sprain, with the return-to-play timeline being typically one to three weeks.

TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS @ CAROLINA PANTHERS

Buccaneers wide receiver Russell Gage suffered a hamstring strain in the fourth quarter. The Grade 1 strain return-to-play timeline is typically one to three weeks. 

Panthers running back Chuba Hubbard suffered an ankle sprain, but it is considered minor. He could have come back into the game if needed. I do not expect him to miss Week 8.

NEW YORK JETS @ DENVER BRONCOS

Jets superstar rookie running back Breece Hall suffered potentially a serious knee injury in the second quarter. I fear he tore his ACL and will miss the remainder of the season. Wide receiver Corey Davis suffered a knee injury in the second quarter. I believe he is dealing with an MCL sprain, which has a Grade 1 return-to-play timeline of one to two weeks and a Grade 2 timeline of two to four weeks. 

Broncos running back Mike Boone suffered a foot injury in the second quarter. X-rays were negative, but he could miss time.

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS @ LOS ANGELES CHARGERS

Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf suffered potentially a serious knee injury in the first quarter. I fear that he suffered a torn ACL, which would end his season. The hope is that he escaped with just an MCL sprain. 

Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams suffered a potentially serious ankle injury in the fourth quarter. I believe he suffered a high-ankle sprain at minimum. The hope is that he did not sustain a fracture to the fibula as well. The average return-to-play timeline is four to six weeks. If this is a Grade 2 sprain, then he could miss six to 12 weeks.
