The 2023 NFL season’s sixth week hasn’t been great. Apart from a few terribly timed errors and overall careless play, this week’s offensive output has only resulted in 43.4% of red zone possessions being converted into touchdowns. That is the lowest total for any one week since 2014. The Giants, Saints, and Seahawks all suffered heartbreaking defeats on Sunday as a result of their struggles in the red zone.
Check out the list of some of the most well-known NFL injured players compiled and curated by igamingmi.com, a website for all things related to gambling in Michigan:
Justin Fields – Chicago Bears
Fields was inconsistent early against the Vikings and left the game in the third quarter due to a dislocated thumb, but he was hoping to build on a recent hot streak that included eight throwing touchdowns in his previous two games. The quarterback is unlikely to play in Week 7 when they go against the Las Vegas Raiders, according to head coach Matt Eberflus’ statement. Regarding Fields’ potential return date to the field, Eberflus did not provide a timeline.
According to NFL Media, Fields won’t need surgery anytime soon. Instead, his goal is to return to the field as soon as possible by using rehabilitation to get back to normal. Should Fields need surgery, his absence would probably be long.
Trevor Lawrence – Jacksonville Jaguars
Lawrence led the Jaguars to a 37-20 victory against the Colts with two touchdown passes, but he was deemed unlikely to return due to a knee injury that forced him to leave the game late. NFL Media reports that while he is scheduled for an MRI, it is thought that there isn’t a serious injury. It’s hoped that Lawrence will be OK for the team’s game against the Saints.
Ryan Tannehill – Tennessee Titans
For the fourth game this season, Tannehill failed to lead the Titans to more than 16 points, and his already difficult year took a worse turn on Sunday morning in London when he was carried off with a late ankle injury. Malik Willis, a second-year backup, replaced Tannehill against the Ravens and completed 4 of 5 passes; he could be used again in the next few weeks.
Jimmy Garoppolo – Las Vegas Raiders
After throwing 22 passes against his old teammates, the Patriots, the often-injured Raiders signal-caller left the game before halftime to get his back examined. It was then said that he is unlikely to return, and another former Patriot, Brian Hoyer, took his position. Earlier this year, Garoppolo had a concussion that kept him out of action. He was sent to a hospital for further care and supervision.
Baker Mayfield – Tampa Bay Buccaneers
In a crushing Week 6 loss, Tampa Bay had almost no answer for the Lions. Mayfield labored (19 of 37, 206 yards, 1 INT) and eventually sustained a thumb injury. According to coach Bruce Arians, he didn’t lose any time, and the X-rays came back negative, but the ailment will need to be watched going ahead.
