Week 12 a little strange regarding injuries. New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski looked like he might have been the best first-round pick back in fantasy drafts, but now his fantasy owners look like they're going to miss him for a couple weeks. Even though he hasn't been ruled out, his fantasy owners will need to hit the waiver wire.
Besides that, there weren't a lot of impact injuries from this week. Here are some of the other injuries from this past week and injuries before Week 12.
Injuries from Week 12
Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers
What: Possible concussion
Analysis: He has a good chance to play on Sunday.
Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington, Arizona Cardinals
What: Johnson has a knee injury and had limp on Monday; Ellington has turf toe
Analysis: They are probably not going to play this week, so it's time to add David Johnson almost everywhere.
Ahmad Bradshaw, Indianapolis Colts
What: Wrist surgery, out for the year
Analysis: The Colts may give several carries to Dan Herron, so he's worth a look in deep leagues.
Karlos Williams, Buffalo Bills
What: Shoulder injury
Analysis: He should be ready for Week 13.
Allen Hurns, Jacksonville Jaguars
Analysis: He could miss time, so that would mean more Marqise Lee for owners in deep leagues.
Rishard Matthews, Miami Dolphins
What: Has a chest injury
Analysis: Likely out this week, DeVante Parker is a nice pickup.
Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots
What: Knee bruise, week-to-week
Analysis: His owners should plan on not having; Scott Chandler should be added in most leagues.
Jimmy Graham, Seattle Seahawks
What: Torn patella tendon
Analysis: He's out for the season, so expect guys like Doug Baldwin to step up and Luke Wilson is a solid pickup.

Injuries before Week 9
Sam Bradford, Philadelphia Eagles
What: Grade II AC joint sprain in non-throwing shoulder
Analysis: He has a good chance to play on Sunday against the New England Patriots.
Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos
What: Foot injury, out Week 12
Analysis: Brock Osweiler will likely start for the rest of the season
Marshawn Lynch, Seattle Seahawks
What: Abdomen injury, seeing a specialist
Analysis: Thomas Rawls for the win.
Charcandrick West, Kansas City Chiefs
What: Hamstring strain
Analysis: Spencer Ware looked great, but West could return this week.
Ryan Mathews, Philadelphia Eagles
Analysis: He's still not cleared, so there should be more snaps for DeMarco Murray and Darren Sproles.
Devonta Freeman, Atlanta Falcons
Analysis: He has a good chance to play in Week 13, but keep Tevin Coleman on your roster.
Carlos Hyde, San Francisco 49ers
What: Foot fracture
Analysis: Could miss more time; Shaun Draughn is the starter and has some value in 10-team leagues.
Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola, New England Patriots
What: Foot surgery for Edelman; Amendola should return from a knee injury this week
Analysis: Amendola could be back this week.
Eddie Royal, Chicago Bears
What: Knee injury
Analysis: He's probably out again; Royal can't stay healthy.
Leonard Hankerson, Atlanta Falcons
What: Hamstring, week-to-week
Analysis: He could come back this week, but will likely be limited.
Zach Ertz, Philadelphia Eagles
Analysis: He's likely out again this week after missing Thanksgiving; Brent Celek is in play for all leagues.
Larry Donnell, New York Giants
What: Neck strain
Analysis: Did not play in Week 12; could be out for the season.
