NFL Week 11 injury roundup: A.J. Green, T.J. Yeldon go down
The Jaguars offense was hit hard by injuries in Week 11’s game against the Lions.
Tight end Marcedes Lewis (calf) and running back T.J. Yeldon (ankle) were both ruled out for the game, as was left guard Patrick Omameh.
Yeldon’s workload has decreased in his second NFL season and he has struggled to break off long runs. He is averaging 3.6 yards per carry and his longest run of the year is 16 yards. Lewis is the team’s second tight end, behind Julius Thomas.
The biggest injury of the day was to Bengals receiver A.J. Green, who was carted off with a hamstring issue.
A full list of injuries we’re tracking is below.
A.J. Green, Bengals — Hamstring, out
Green is far and away the Bengals’ top receiver. He has 66 catches for 964 yards in nine games this season. No other Cincinnati pass-catcher has more than 34 catches or 387 yards.
Giovani Bernard, Bengals — Knee, out
Bernard tore his ACL in the Bengals' loss to the Bills, according to NFL Network.
T.J. Yeldon, Jaguars — Ankle, out
Yeldon’s injury means more carries for Chris Ivory and Denard Robinson.
Morris Claiborne, Cowboys — Pelvis, out
Claiborne injured his pelvis against the Ravens and will be re-elevated in three weeks.
Marcedes Lewis, Jaguars — Calf, out
Lewis has 18 catches for 153 yards and a touchdown this season.
LeSean McCoy, Bills — Thumb, out
McCoy dislocated his thumb and could not return to the game because the training staff was unable to pop it back into place. McCoy will need surgery to repair the injury but is expected to play next week against the Jaguars.
Leonard Floyd, Bears — Neck, out
Floyd was carted off from the field after suffering a neck injury.
Josh Sitton, Bears — Ankle, out
Sitton, an All-Pro left guard, had his lower leg stepped on by Jason Pierre-Paul.
Zach Miller, Bears — Foot, out
Miller broke his foot on Sunday and will be out for the remainder of the season. Previously used primarily as a blocker, Miller has emerged as a top receiving option for Jay Cutler.
