Wild NFL knockouts have come and gone. Now there are four teams left and, aside from the Captain, the favorites to win have all fallen to weaker opponents. The Rams and 49ers teams will play in NFC while the captains and Bengal team compete to determine the winner in the AFC.
We’ll dive into the previous section for these matches, but I wanted to quickly examine some of the notable injuries that occurred last week. While it’s no big deal, there are a few guys to keep in mind as they head into the weekend in terms of health.
Mathiew began what could be the most important week of his NFL career stuck in concussion protocol. When speaking to reports on Monday, head coach Andy Reid confirmed that Mathieu suffered a concussion but was physically feeling fine while attending the AFC title match against the Bengals.
Mathieu was just seven minutes after KC’s stunning win on Sunday night before he was knocked out by a concussion during the Bills’ first drive. Teammate Jarran Reed accidentally lunged at him on the head. His presence was missed when Josh Allen arrived in town on secondary KC. Daniel Sorensen will re-fill it if Mathieu can’t go. This will be bad news for the chiefs as Sorensen has been badly beaten by the chiefs in several major plays. I wouldn’t bet he keeps it together in a game as important as this one. The Chief is currently 7 points favorite at WynnBET Sportsbook to wrap up the Bengals’ Cinderella story before they attend the Super Bowl.
While the San Francisco 49ers celebrated a big win over the Packers in the Division Round, the team almost suffered a huge loss to get there. Left-ball superstar Trent Williams appeared to suffer a serious ankle injury in the third inning of Sunday’s game. While he was taped and returned to action, he was seen on crutches after the game. The good news is that an X-ray of the ankle has come back negative. Considering he only missed one snap during the entire ordeal, crutches may be more of a way for him to rest his ankle than a requirement for mobility. While we will continue to monitor this situation, it looks like Williams will be very good to take on the Rams this weekend.
