Most NFL teams are hit by the injury bug week to week, but the big question is which players on the injury report will suit up and take the field on Sunday?
The New England Patriots have struggled mightily in the passing attack with injuries to key receivers such as Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski. While Amendola's status is a bit more bleak for Week 3 (doubtful, groin), Gronkowski's status is still up in the air (questionable, back/forearm), per ESPN.com.
A team like the Denver Broncos has been playing at a high level this season, but they haven't even been at full strength on defense with an injury to Champ Bailey (questionable, foot) who hasn't played this season. Linebacker Shaun Phillips (questionable, back) is also among the walking wounded in Denver, per ESPN.com.
Reggie Bush got off to a stunning start to his Detroit Lions career in Week 1. Injuries have been a concern for Bush throughout his career, and this week is no different as he isn't expected to play but is still listed as questionable with a knee injury, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Each of these players' absence will not only have a staggering effect on their respective squads, but fantasy owners must get the low down on each in order to avoid getting a big fat zero in the box score.
Aside from the players mentioned, there are other marquee names listed on injury reports that fans must keep an eye on in order to know who is healthy enough to play and who isn't—which can also help provide a better insight as to how particular matchups between teams will go.
