Brandon LaFell injury: WR sports walking boot Monday, fantasy prospects in doubt

Al Bello

Brandon LaFell was spotted wearing a walking boot on Monday, putting his playing status for the Panthers' Week 14 matchup against the Falcons in question. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brandon LaFell was spotted wearing a walking boot on his right foot Monday, according to the Charlotte Observer. The Carolina Panthers wide receiver sprained his foot during Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He also underwent an MRI on Monday, but there is no word yet on the extent of the injury.

More should be revealed on LaFell's status for Week 14 against the Atlanta Falcons when practice reports are released beginning Wednesday. He was very quiet Sunday, catching just two passes for 14 yards off four targets despite playing most of the game.

Fantasy Impact: LaFell had caught touchdowns in his two preceding games, so hopefully Sunday's outing is just a fluke and he can continue to be a solid fantasy option through the end of the regular season. That assumes he is healthy, of course.

If LaFell is healthy this week, he will have a difficult matchup against a Falcons secondary that has given up just 11 passing touchdowns this season with 16 interceptions.
