NFL Week 13 Injuries: Updates on Keenan Allen, Jayden Reed, and more

The Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks were supposed to play a great game on Thursday, but nobody anticipated that it would end up being the highest-scoring prime-time game of 2023 and just the fifth NFL game ever to end without a punt.

With 3 touchdowns and 299 yards passing, Dak Prescott led the Cowboys to a 41-35 victory.

Up until that point in the evening, prime-time games had averaged a total of 40.1 points this season. Up until Thursday, the over/under had been surpassed in the majority of prime-time games this season—76%, the highest percentage this century.

The Cowboys’ winning run at home now stands at 14 games. Dallas won’t play again until an NFC East rematch at AT&T Stadium on December 10, following back-to-back Thursday games. The Eagles, who triumphed 28-23 in Philadelphia on November 5, were the only team to defeat the Cowboys in the previous seven games.

At Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday, the Eagles (10-1) take on the resurgent San Francisco 49ers (8-3) in a pivotal game. Right tackle Lane Johnson, who was sidelined by a groin injury during last week’s victory over the Buffalo Bills, is expected to return for Philadelphia. Dallas Goedert, an Eagles tight end, will miss the game against Dallas due to a broken forearm, but he appeared to be improving this week.

Other receivers who are vital to their teams’ success, such as Los Angeles Chargers star Keenan Allen, Cincinnati Bengals veteran Tee Higgins, and Green Bay Packers rookie Jayden Reed, could be limited by different injuries but seem likely to try.

Keenan Allen, WR, Los Angeles Chargers

Injury: Thigh

This week, Allen missed two practice days, but he made a comeback on Friday. With 97 receptions, he leads the NFL in receptions and hasn’t missed a game this season. Although he is officially listed as questionable, the veteran made it seem very likely that he would play against the New England Patriots on Sunday after Friday’s practice.

Jayden Reed, WR, Green Bay Packers

Injury: Chest

For the most part of the week, Reed’s situation didn’t seem good. Coach Matt LaFleur stated that although Reed missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday, there was still a chance he could play if he returned on Friday. Reed was classified as questionable even though he did practice on Friday. He was struck hard in the midsection two weeks ago, which caused his initial injury, but he has recovered and continued to be productive. Despite the lack of a true wide receiver in the Packers’ lineup, Reed has been the most productive player thus far this season.

Tee Higgins, WR, Cincinnati Bengals

Injury: Hamstring

Despite being limited during practice on Thursday, Higgins stated that he will play on Monday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Despite the loss of quarterback Joe Burrow for the season, he stated that he wanted to be completely healthy before coming back to help the team possibly earn a postseason berth. The previous three games, Higgins has not played.

Breece Hall, RB, New York Jets

Injury: Hamstring

Despite having a questionable rating, Hall is anticipated to play after practicing extensively on Friday. Although Dalvin Cook “should be fine,” coach Robert Saleh says, backups Dalvin Cook (shoulder) and Israel Abanikanda (illness) are also doubtful.

— Rich Cimini

Fletcher Cox, DT, Philadelphia Eagles

Injury: Groin

Cox hasn’t practised all week, yet he is still listed as questionable. Even if he plays, young defensive tackles Jordan Davis and Jalen Carter should get the most of the work. Due to the injury to his hamstring, linebacker Zach Cunningham will make the Eagles more exposed up the middle.
