This injury tracker report will bridge the gap between our early week in-depth injury report and our Friday practice & status report. We'll track all key fantasy player injuries and provide information from the teams and practice reports. Be sure you check out our Priority News often during the week as all breaking player news will be posted there. Please note that teams playing on Monday night don't release injury reports until after Thursday practice and teams in the west often report their injuries late.
