Cooper Kupp | Right ankle injury | Week-to-Week | Out Week 11
The live television angle and single replay did not clearly show Kupp's injury. The Rams announced Kupp's injury as an ankle injury. After the game, Sean McVay said it "didn't look good and didn't sound good."
The most likely injury lies along the spectrum of a high ankle sprain -- from a mid-grade ligament injury to a higher-grade injury with a fibular fracture. It's very likely a multiple-week injury. Whether his initial timetable will be set at 2-4 weeks or 4-6+ weeks will depend on the structures involved. The Rams will know more after a Monday MRI.
Monday update: X-rays reportedly did not reveal a fracture. Adam Schefter tweeted a source told him Kupp suffered a high ankle sprain and the prognosis "doesn't sound good." While that doesn't mean Kupp will require surgery or has a season-ending injury, it suggests a higher-grade injury and closer to the 4-6 week recovery timeframe.
Jerry Jeudy | Left ankle injury | Day-to-day | Questionable Week 11
Jeudy injured his left ankle on the game's first play and did not return. The Broncos initially said medical staff was focused on the back of Jeudy's foot and ankle, which raised suspicion for an Achilles' injury. After the game, Jeudy was immobilized in a walking boot but said he was hopeful the injury was a low ankle sprain.
Consider Jeudy questionable at best unless the team reports reassuring imaging results and clears him to return to practice quickly.
Monday update: The Broncos consider Jeudy day-to-day. The injury continues to be described in odd ways. Ian Rapoport said it was more a "muscle thing" in the back of the ankle while those around the team continue to report the injury as a low ankle sprain. Until the diagnostic reports make more sense, it's best to consider Jeudy questionable to play this week.
Leonard Fournette | Hip contusion | Day-to-day | Bye Week 11
Todd Bowles told reporters Fournette suffered a "hip pointer" and did not return. Fournette will get two weeks to recover through the Buccaneers' Week 11 bye. His post-bye usage may depend as much on the coaching staff's approach to Rachaad White's snaps as Sunday's injury.
Zach Ertz | Left knee injury | Season-ending injury
Ertz was carted off with a knee injury and did not return. He was seen wearing a brace in the locker room. Kliff Kingsbury said the team didn't know the severity of Ertz's injury. He will be evaluated further on Monday.
Monday update: Adam Schefter tweeted Sunday night the Cardinals believed Ertz's ACL was "intact." Unfortunately, Ian Rapoport is reporting Ertz has a season-ending knee injury.

Follow Up Appointments
Kyler Murray | Hamstring strain | Day-to-day | Questionable Week 11
Murray was able to practice with limitations last week but was not healthy enough to protect himself inside and outside the pocket. The Cardinals chose to rest Murray rather than risk aggravating his hamstring strain.
The strain is likely low grade, and there's no indication a late-week aggravation was the reason he was inactive on Sunday. He has a good chance to return this week.
Mark Andrews | Shoulder sprain | Day-to-Day | Questionable Week 11
The Ravens held Andrews out last Monday night, preferring to give him three full weeks to recover from a shoulder sprain. If the medical staff is comfortable clearing him for contact in practice this week, he'll return to play. Andrews will need to prove his range of motion is close to normal and that he can take contact with minimal pain.
He's likely closer to probable than doubtful.
JaMarr Chase | Hip avulsion fracture | Week-to-week | Out Week 11 | Target Week 14+
The Bengals elected to keep Chase on the active roster rather than use injured reserve. The most optimistic recovery estimates are in the 3-4 week range. While Chase reportedly isn't dealing with significant pain or limited range of motion, the medical staff will need to see enough healing on imaging studies to clear him to play.
There's some chance Chase will be cleared to play in Week 11 -- four weeks after Cincinnati shut him down -- but expect the Bengals to remain cautious. Wednesday's practice participation will be informative.
Monday update: Chase remains on crutches and has not been cleared for weight-bearing activities. That puts him at least two weeks from returning to practice. He may not be ready until Week 14.
Ezekiel Elliott | Right knee sprain | Day-to-day | Questionable Week 11
Despite continued optimism from Jerry Jones, the Cowboys decided it was best to allow Elliott to rest another week. The full week of limited workouts last week suggests Elliott is close, and he should return soon.
