As we head into Week 10 of the 2022 NFL season, the injuries are piling up and each team is dealing with a different level of health. This week, the Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots and New York Jets are all on byes, giving their banged-up players a chance to rest and heal.
The biggest news this week is whether Bills quarterback Josh Allen will be able to play on Sunday against the Vikings. Allen is confident he can suit up and on Wednesday, head coach Sean McDermott said his star QB is considered “day-to-day” as he deals with an elbow injury.
Week 10 kicks off on Thursday night when the Falcons and Panthers go at it for the second time in three weeks. Five players have already been ruled out between the two teams. Let’s take a look at the Week 10 injury report.
