When it comes to betting on football there is no piece of information as crucial as the injury report. The injury report lists in detail the players that are banged up heading into the week. One player could make all the difference on the field as teams can suffer a super setback without a pivotal player on the field.
Week 14 is no exception as several players are on the mend and it affects the early game between the Denver Broncos and the Oakland Raiders. Darren McFadden is injured for the Raiders and he will be needed for this game. Despite reports to the contrary, McFadden, who was limited in practices last week due to his injured ankle, was inactive on Sunday after being listed as questionable to play on Friday. He is listed as day-to-day but if he plays it could make all the difference.
Injury reports list important info, like the fact that Michael Vick will never play under center again for the Eagles, at least this year. Vick didn’t practice last week due to his ongoing recovery from a concussion, and he was inactive on Sunday as expected after being listed as out on Friday. Eagles head coach Andy Reid said on Monday that quarterback Vick is in Stage 4 of the NFL’s concussion protocol system and is showing signs of improvement; however, Reid made it clear that QB Nick Foles will start even when Vick is cleared to return.
One of the biggest play makers in the NFL could be out again. Percy Harvin was unable to practice Thursday or Friday last week due to his injured ankle, and he was inactive on Sunday after being listed as doubtful to play on Friday. He will be another day-to-day player.
When handicapping all the games for an NFL Sunday, the injury list should become your top priority.
