Dalvin Cook | Right high ankle sprain | Day-to-Day | Questionable Week 3
Cook labored through the second half after his right ankle was twisted in the pile and then again at the end of a carry. The second injury suggested a lower-grade high ankle sprain. Cook's foot was not stuck in the turf at the moment of injury, which likely saved him from a more serious sprain.
Still, high ankle injuries can be difficult to assess in the first hours after the injury. Mike Zimmer did not sound concerned after the game but developing swelling and stiffness over the next 24 hours will be critical to Cook's Week 3 availability. If there's any concern on Monday, expect the team to schedule an MRI to better define the injury.
Diontae Johnson | Right knee injury | Day-to-Day | Questionable Week 3
Johnson injured his right knee on the final play of the game. The only video of the injury was the live television angle and the view of the injury was obscured by a teammate. Johnson was helped off the field but no replays of the injury were shown. Mike Tomlin had no updates on Johnson after the game.
The injury will hopefully prove to be minor. I'll provide more specific analysis after more details are reported.
Monday Update: Johnson reportedly did not suffer a serious injury. No specific diagnosis was reported and he is considered day-to-day and questionable for Week 3.
Carson Wentz | Right ankle injury | Awaiting MRI | Questionable Week 3
Wentz had his right foot and ankle violently rolled underneath him on a mid-fourth quarter play and could not return. The injury is not a high ankle sprain but the force applied was significant enough to worry about a multiple-week injury.
