Week 10 Fantasy Football Injury Updates: Ben Roethlisberger, Teddy Bridgewater, Josh McCown, Jordan Cameron

Teddy Bridgewater

Teddy Bridgewater

As we look ahead to Week 10, we have another full slate of fantasy-relevant injuries. Four teams are on bye, but there are still plenty of players battling a variety of injuries. Below you won’t find the names of any quarterbacks or tight ends that have put in full practices and have a Probable tag — Peyton Manning, Travis Kelce, Julius Thomas, to name a few. These guys are fully expected to be on the field, so start them as you normally would. Please also check out the running back and wide receiver (early games, later games) injury updates before setting your lineup.

Teams on bye: Atlanta, Indianapolis, San Diego, San Francisco

Note: All games are at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday unless otherwise noted.

Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cleveland Browns

Questionable – Foot

All reports out of Pittsburgh are that Roethlisberger will not play on Sunday. The Questionable tag may just be a bit of gamesmanship. Roethlisberger hurt his foot last week, but fortunately he avoided a serious injury. The Steelers have a bye in Week 11, so the team will likely have him rest this week and through the bye, and he'll be good to go in Week 12. Antonio Brown owners have to suffer through another week with Landry Jones (but Martavis Bryant owners should be happy).

Questionable – Concussion
After suffering a scary-looking hit last Sunday against the Rams, Bridgewater entered the concussion protocol. Reports were that he hasn't gained final clearance as of Friday, but he did practice in full. Be sure to monitor the inactives to see if he does play. With a touch matchup, Bridgewater is on the QB2 radar, but he does need to be cleared to return to the field first.

Josh McCown, QB, Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers

Questionable – Ribs

The Browns have said that if McCown is able to play (and is active), he will be the starting quarterback. However, all reports are that Johnny Manziel will get the start today. McCown suffered a rib injury in Week 8 and missed last week’s game. The Browns play at 1 p.m. ET, so fantasy owners counting on McCown will know early on if he’s a go and be able to adjust if necessary.

Jordan Cameron, TE, Miami Dolphins at Philadelphia Eagles

Probable – Hamstring
Cameron was on the injury report for last week’s game, and he ended up playing (if you consider one reception for six yards playing). He put in a full practice on Friday and will be active on Sunday. However, there are better options at tight end this week. He hasn't had more than 35 receiving yards since Week 2 or more than three catches since Week 1. And he has just one touchdown on the year. Cameron is barely on the TE2 radar.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Dallas Cowboys

Questionable – Shoulder

Even though ASJ has been given the Questionable tag (again), it doesn't look like he will take the field (again). He has been practicing, but the reports out of Tampa Bay are that he hasn't been cleared for contact. Don't count on having him in your lineup for Week 10. It is a possibility, but it doesn't look good. Seferian-Jenkins is still worth holding on to, because he will have value once he gets back on the field.

Larry Donnell, TE, New York Giants vs. New England Patriots (Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET)

Out – Neck

Donnell missed last week’s game after suffering a neck injury in Week 8. He was spotted running at practice on Wednesday, but he has already been ruled out for Week 10. The Giants have a bye in Week 11, and Donnell should return to game action in Week 12. With many tight ends struggling, try and keep Donnell on your roster through the bye in two-TE leagues.
