NFL inactives tracker Week 11: De'Von Achane Dolphins, Justin Fields, Matthew Stafford to return
Ravens win 34-20, Bengals lose Burrow and Ravens' Andrews. Browns' Thompson-Robinson in, Watson out. Dolphins' Achane returns. Fields, Stafford, Allen updates.
The Baltimore Ravens improved to 8-3, dropping the Cincinnati Bengals to 5-5 after a 34-20 win during "Thursday Night Football" to kick off Week 11 in the NFL. This game brought two significant pieces of injury news. Ravens tight end Mark Andrews is done for the season with an ankle injury, and the Bengals lost Joe Burrow for the year with a torn ligament in his wrist. The NFL is investigating why Burrow was not on the pre-game injury report.
The Cleveland Browns will turn back to Dorian Thompson-Robinson at quarterback against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday after the news that Deshaun Watson's season is over with a fracture in his throwing shoulder. The Miami Dolphins received some good news on Saturday. Running back De'Von Achane, who has missed four weeks with a knee injury, has been activated off injured reserve and will play Sunday versus the Las Vegas Raiders.
Justin Fields (thumb) is expected to start for the Chicago Bears after missing four games when they face the Detroit Lions. "It's not 100 percent, but it feels good. There's still a little bit of healing left, but it's stable," Fields said. In other thumb injury news, Matthew Stafford went through a full practice Thursday and is expected to start against the Seattle Seahawks. He injured it Oct. 29 against the Dallas Cowboys, but thanks to the Rams' bye week he only missed one game.
Keenan Allen will play for the Los Angeles Chargers when they take on the Green Bay Packers, but he will suit up while dealing with an AC joint sprain in his left shoulder. The 31-year-old wide receiver suffered the injury during a tackle in the fourth quarter of their Week 10 loss to the Lions.
The rest of the Week 11 NFL injury report is as follows: Justin Jefferson will not take the field for Sunday night's game against the Denver Broncos. "I'm the main person that's going to make the decision," the wide receiver told reporters. He has been out since he sustained a hamstring injury Oct. 8. RB Alexander Mattison (concussion) is questionable.
