Welcome back to the RotoHeat Injury Report! The current designations and what they mean are below:
Doubtful: Likely not playing
Out: Not playing
COVID: Out for at least a week or two due to either testing positive COVID, or being in close contact with someone with COVID.
IR: On Injured Reserve. Some of these players may return later in the year. If a player tests positive for COVID, they can be on this list or three weeks and then return. There is also the IR-Return list, where if the players have the designation they can return after their team has played eight games.
PUP: Physically Unable to Perform. These players will be out the first six weeks of the season, and then there is a five week window for the player to start practicing. Once they start practicing teams have three weeks to activate the player or keep him with this designation for the rest of the year.
For a full list of players on injured reserve by team, please see this fantastic, sortable list.

With the understanding that leagues vary, we will try to only list potentially fantasy relevant players. Kickers, punters and offensive linemen will not be listed here. Let’s get to the lists!
