Nick Bosa Out For Remainder Of Wild Card Affair

  • Sun, January 16, 2022

San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa (concussion) won't return to Sunday's Wild Card matchup versus Dallas. The 24-year-old came down hard on his head in the first half but appeared to have a chance to make it back. However, he was eventually downgraded after failing to pass subsequent concussion testing. Bosa would go on to finish with three total tackles, and if the Niners make it past the Cowboys, he should be considered questionable for the Divisional round.

Nick Bosa Exits Sunday's Game Against Cowboys

  • Sun, January 16, 2022

San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Nick Bosa (neck/head) exited Sunday's game versus Dallas. While looking to pick up a sack in the second quarter, he came down hard on his head. He did make his way back to the locker room before the end of the first half, though he did give the crowd a thumbs-up, a possible sign he will see the field in the second half. Nonetheless, Bosa should still be considered questionable to return, and if he doesn't make it back, Dak Prescott could substantially benefit.

Tristan Wirfs Has A Sprained Ankle

  • Sun, January 16, 2022

Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive tackle Tristan Wirfs (ankle) was ruled out of Sunday's postseason win over the Eagles. He sustained an injury in the first half that didn't look too good and was ruled out for the remainder of the game. Fortunately, he's been diagnosed with a sprained ankle, which is good news considering he's widely considered one of the best linemen in the league. Nonetheless, an absence during the Divisional round could impact the play of Tom Brady and others, so hopefully, the Bucs will have the All-Pro back, even if he isn't 100 percent.

Jalen Hurts Unsure If He'll Need Surgery

  • Sun, January 16, 2022

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (foot) had 258 yards and a touchdown on 23-for-43 passing while adding eight carries for 39 yards during the Wild Card round loss to the Buccaneers. He also threw two interceptions, and even worse, he was observed wearing a walking boot during a post-game interview. The 23-year-old stated he's been dealing with the undisclosed ailment for quite some time, and he isn't sure if he will have to undergo surgery during the offseason. Nonetheless, despite his efficient play this year, Hurts doesn't have a firm grasp on the team's starting job for the 2021-22 campaign, so this is undoubtedly a situation to monitor moving ahead as if it could impact his draft stock.

Lane Johnson Injured Against Buccaneers

  • Sun, January 16, 2022

Philadelphia Eagles Pro Bowl right tackle Lane Johnson (knee) suffered a knee injury in Sunday's wild-card game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and was listed as questionable to return. Johnson was able to practice on a limited basis this week with his knee injury, but he aggravated it in the blowout loss to the Buccaneers and wasn't able to return to the game. Jordan Mailata took over on the right side of Philly's offensive line to close out the wild-card contest. With Johnson's help, the Eagles had the best rushing offense in the NFL during the regular season, but they were completely shut down by Tampa's strong defensive front on Sunday. It didn't help that the Bucs jumped out to a big score early and never looked back.

Greg Ward Injures Back Against Tampa Bay

  • Sun, January 16, 2022

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Greg Ward (back) injured his back in Sunday's wild-card game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and has been ruled out for the rest of the game. Ward didn't see a single target in the game before leaving, and with the Eagles down big and likely to lose to Tampa, Ward will finish his 2021 season with just seven receptions on 11 targets for 95 yards and three touchdowns in 18 games played. In a run-first offense, Ward didn't have much of a chance to put up numbers behind receivers DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins and Jalen Reagor. In his three NFL seasons, Ward has produced 88 catches for 768 yards and 10 touchdowns on 130 targets over 40 games played.

Tristan Wirfs Ruled Out For Rest Of Game

  • Sun, January 16, 2022

After trying to return for one offensive series, Tampa Bay Buccaneers right tackle Tristan Wirfs (ankle) has been ruled out for the rest of the wild-card game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Wirfs hobbled to the locker room on the first offensive series of the game and didn't look right when he tried to return. Pro Bowl center Ryan Jensen was shaken up in the first half as well, but he was able to return. In a 31-0 blowout at the start of the fourth quarter, keeping Wirfs in at less than 100% made zero sense. There's a good chance that the Bucs could start pulling other starters, including quarterback Tom Brady, before the end of the game. Brady has already been sacked four times, which could be an issue in the Divisional Round if Wirfs is unable to play.

Tristan Wirfs Questionable To Return Sunday

  • Sun, January 16, 2022

Tampa Bay Buccaneers right tackle Tristan Wirfs (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's wild-card game against the Philadelphia Eagles after he hobbled off into the locker room during the team's first offensive drive in the first quarter. Tampa went right down and scored on their first drive of the game, with running back Ke'Shawn Vaughn carrying three times for 22 yards. However, it was Giovani Bernard, who was just activated from Injured Reserve on Saturday, that scored the first touchdown of the game on a goal-line plunge. Bernard also caught two of three targets for 15 yards on the first drive. With Leonard Fournette (hamstring) and Ronald Jones II (ankle) out, Vaughn and Bernard will split the backfield on Sunday, but losing Wirfs for the rest of the game won't help Tampa's cause on the ground.

James Conner Will Play Monday Night

  • Sun, January 16, 2022

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer said on Sunday that Arizona Cardinals running back James Conner (ribs) will play in Monday night's wild-card game against the Los Angeles Rams. Conner missed practice on Thursday and Friday before returning to a limited session on Saturday, but head coach Kliff Kingsbury said earlier in the week that Conner would be a game-time decision this week. The 26-year-old was the RB5 in fantasy scoring during the regular season, thanks to 18 total touchdowns, but he'll be in a timeshare with Chase Edmonds in Arizona's backfield against a tough Rams defense on the road on Monday night. In two games against LA this year, Conner had 31 carries for 81 yards (2.61 yards per carry) and four rushing TDs, adding 11 receptions for 110 yards, but Edmonds missed the second game against the Rams.
