Here’s a list of the inactive players in the NFL for Week 8, including LeSean McCoy and Julian Edelman.
In Week 8, injuries start piling up in the NFL. A full 16 game season does a lot of damage to your body and around the eighth week, it starts adding up. Several NFL stars will be inactive in Week 8. Here’s a list of them.
The Buffalo Bills will be without star running back LeSean McCoy thanks to a hamstring injury. McCoy tried to get healthy in time for Sunday’s game, but it turns out he will be inactive. The Bills will miss him, as he is currently fourth in the league in rushing and has been a huge reason for their recent turnaround. Meanwhile, the New England Patriots will have Julian Edelman due to a foot injury which he has battled through all season. They will, however, be without wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell.
Running back Doug Martin is out due to a hamstring issue he believes he has had since Week 2. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have to replace him as they take on the Oakland Raiders. Expect his backup Jacquizz Rogers to get a brunt of the carries. He’s been doing a solid job replacing Martin so far.
The Seattle Seahawks will not have the leader of their defense Kam Chancellor. Chancellor is out due to a groin injury. They will also be without Thomas Rawls, Luke Wilson, and Michael Bennett. Seattle squares off against the New Orleans Saints, who will be without Sterling Moore, Jake Lampman, and Stephone Anthony.
Meanwhile, the New York Jets will be without Geno Smith, Nick Mangold, and Christian Hackenberg. Bryce Petty will be the backup quarterback behind Ryan Fitzpatrick. They will face the Cleveland Browns, who are without quarterback Cody Kessler and offensive lineman Jonathan Cooper.
