NFL Betting Injury Update: Week 17

Down to the final week of the regular season, some coaches have tough decisions to make regarding NFL injuries. Teams headed for the playoffs must decide who to rest and who to start, while teams out of the playoffs don’t want to risk long-term injury. Here’s a look at this week’s NFL injury report.

Adrian Peterson was lost for the remainder of the season with a torn ACL, and Minnesota hopes that the injury won’t linger into next season. Quarterback Christian Ponder suffered a head injury last week but is currently considered probable to play. The Vikings are a 1-point favorite at home against Chicago this week at BetOnline.

With the AFC North still up for grabs if Baltimore loses, Ben Roethlisberger (ankle) may try and play against the Browns, though he is currently considered questionable. Colt McCoy (head) is currently considered doubtful for Cleveland, and would be replaced by Seneca Wallace if he can’t play. No line is currently available on this game as bookmakers wait for updates on each quarterback’s status.

Both of Miami’s top two running backs, Reggie Bush (leg) and Daniel Thomas (knee) are currently considered questionable for their matchup against the New York Jets this week. Miami is currently a 1.5-point favorite at home at 5Dimes.

St. Louis could be without both of its top quarterbacks as Sam Bradford (ankle) is currently considered doubtful and A.J. Feeley (thumb) is currently considered questionable. Recently-signed backup Kellen Clemens was very ineffective against Pittsburgh last week, and Tom Brandstater has never taken a snap in an NFL game. St. Louis is a 10.5-point underdog at home against San Francisco at TopBet.

The Oakland Raiders may get a little healthier this week in their regular season finale at home against San Diego. Michael Huff (hamstring) and Taiwan Jones (hamstring) are currently considered probable, and Darren McFadden (foot) and Jacoby Ford (foot) are currently considered questionable. McFadden doesn’t seem likely to play, but Ford did participate at practice Wednesday. Oakland is a 3-point favorite at BetOnline.

Dallas’s Tony Romo (hand) is expected to play as he is currently considered probable and the swelling has reduced. Dallas is a 3-point underdog on the road against the New York Giants at Bovada.
