Carson Wentz | Fractured right fourth finger | Out Week 7 | Target Week 12+
Wentz finished Thursday night's game despite a fracture in the ring finger on his throwing hand. He's scheduled to see an orthopedic hand specialist early this week to discuss next steps.
The location and severity of the fracture will determine whether surgery is necessary and Wentz's ability to grip and throw the ball will determine his return. The Commanders have not ruled Wentz out for Week 7 yet. However, surgery is likely. Expect a multiple-week absence.
Monday update: Wentz had surgery today. Early estimates have him missing 4-6 weeks.
Marquise Brown | Left foot injury | Out Week 7 | Target Week 14+
Video of Brown's injury is worrisome for a Lisfranc injury or toe sprain. Brown left the locker room in a walking boot and told reporters x-rays were negative. That's reassuring against a fracture in either joint but sprains can also require multiple weeks of rehab.
Brown suffered a Lisfranc injury to the same foot in college and had the screw removed in 2020.
Hopefully, Brown's MRI result will be more reassuring than the video appears but prepare for an extended absence. There's very little chance Brown will play on Thursday night.
Monday update: Brown is seeking additional opinions on his foot injury. Ian Rapoport reports Brown has a "non-surgical fracture" in his foot and could miss at least six weeks. Brown likely won't return until Week 14 after the Cardinals' bye week.
