Week 14 NFL injuries: Hilton, Stafford questionable while Gordon, Conner among running backs sidelined – CBS Sports

It’s the Fantasy playoffs for most people, so Week 14 is the worst time to not have key players available. And while several running backs will take a seat due to injuries, there’s a prominent name at quarterback and at wide receiver who is in danger of missing action this week.

Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton was unable to practice early in the week due to a shoulder injury, but he was able to earn a questionable tag on Friday after getting in a limited session. Eric Ebron (back, illness) is good to go, so Hilton is the only major part of the offense at the skill positions who could be unavailable. The Colts are also down Dontrelle Inman (shoulder) at receiver, so if Hilton can’t go, the snaps at receiver would go to Chester Rogers, Ryan Grant, Zach Pascal and Daurice Fountain.

The Lions have several injury concerns for Week 14, the biggest being the status of quarterback Matthew Stafford. After a week of limited practices due to a back injury, Stafford was listed as questionable on the team’s final injury report. Matt Cassel would start at quarterback if Stafford can’t go. That’s not the only injury concern for the Lions, as Kerryon Johnson (knee) remains out and three pass-catchers join Stafford and Darius Slay (ankle) as questionable to play.
