NFL Week 11 injury roundup: Ravens lose Flacco and Forsett for the season
The Ravens lost two key offensive players for the rest of the season during Sunday’s win over the Rams. Starting running back Justin Forsett exited early on with a broken arm and quarterback Joe Flacco suffered a torn ACL. Flacco remained in the game, however, and led Baltimore to a comeback victory.
That wasn’t all for Week 11 injuries. Here are some others:
Justin Forsett | RB, Ravens
Broken arm, will not return
Forsett left the game in an air cast in the first quarter, after four carries for 26 yards. Buck Allen replaced him at tailback.
Devonta Freeman | RB, Falcons
Concussion, did not return
Falcons running back Devonta Freeman made helmet-to-helmet contact with a Colts defender after a two-yard run in the first quarter and was taken off the field to be evaluated for a head injury. He was replaced by backup Tevin Coleman.
Teddy Bridgewater | QB, Vikings
Bridgewater was driven into the ground late in the first half and left with just over a minute left to have his left shoulder examined. He returned for a hail mary before the half.
Darrelle Revis | CB, Jets
Concussion, did not return
The star corner left in the second half after a knee to the head and was diagnosed with a concussion, head coach Todd Bowles told reporters after the game.
Zach Ertz | TE, Eagles
Head, did not return
Ertz was evaluated for a concussion after attempting to hurdle a defender, flipping in mid-air, and landing on his neck/head.
Johnathan Joseph | CB, Texans
The game broadcast showed Joseph being led off to the locker room during the second quarter to have his knee examined. The team announced he is questionable to return.
Alfred Morris | RB, Redskins
Ribs, did not return
Matt Jones took over at running back in the first quarter.
Nick Mangold | C, Jets
Hand, did not return
Head coach Todd Bowles said that Mangold had “severe lacerations” between two fingers on his snapping hand. Mangold has also missed time during the year due to a neck injury.
Vontae Davis | CB, Colts
Hamstring, did not return
The Colts are locked in a tight battle late with the Atlanta Falcons.
Frank Gore | RB, Colts
Quad contusion, returned
He returned after just under 10 minutes.
Glenn Dorsey | DE, 49ers
Knee, will not return
Dorsey was taken off the field on a cart and eventually ruled out for the rest of the game with a knee injury.
Micah Hyde | S, Packers
Hyde was carted off in the first quarter with a hip injury. He also returns punts for Green Bay and was replaced by Randall Cobb in that role.
Charcandrick West | RB, Chiefs
West, the primary running back for Kansas City now that Jamaal Charles is out for the season with a torn ACL, exited with a hamstring injury. Spencer Ware took the majority of the carries after West left and scored on a 52-yard touchdown run.
