With the fantasy football Week 1 games getting ready to start, it is time to check on injuries. With a number of star quality players banged up heading into the 2012 NFL season, here are the players that had question marks by their names heading into the new season:
The Carolina Panthers' running back tweeted Sunday morning that he won't play in the first game of the season, due to an injured ankle. While Stewart hopes to return in Week 2, DeAngelo Williams should receive most of the carries in the Week 1 game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Arizona Cardinals running back didn't start preseason and was only added to the roster late into training camp. Now, it looks like Wells won't play the Cardinals' opening game as the starter. Second-year player Ryan Williams will get the start, while Wells will play limited reps with an injured hamstring.
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is active for fantasy football owners the first time since tearing his ACL in 2011. There is a strong chance he won't get the start, but the Vikings expect him to get 10-15 carries in the game, and against a defense like the Jacksonville Jaguars, that might be enough to make him a solid start.
Despite an injured back in training camp, Marshawn Lynch expects to play the Seattle Seahawks opening game against the Arizona Cardinals. The only alternative is a rookie, so Seattle needs him to stay healthy. The injury was back spasms, so Lynch will play until Seattle decides otherwise.
