8:03 PM ET. Many NFL teams emerged from Week 1 relatively unscathed from an injury standpoint.
O’Brien said “There’s a chance” they could both play in Week 2 against the Jaguars, but Howard seems like he has a better chance than Coutee.
Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox was limited at practice to start the week with a toe injury.
There were a few players added to the injury report to watch as the week goes on: left tackle David Bakhtiari, cornerback Kevin King, center Corey Linsley, linebacker Blake Martinez and receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling.
Pro Bowl wide receiver Mike Evans has also recovered from, as head coach Bruce Arians described it, being “Way under the weather.” It limited his ability to make much of an impact last week, but he’s not on the injury report this week.
Can free safety Jimmie Ward play through a broken finger with a large wrap on his right hand? Ward suffered the injury last week and missed Week 1, but he was on the field for practice this week, albeit with a blue no-contact jersey on.
Carroll said there’s a chance he could make his NFL debut against the Steelers after missing all preseason and Week 1 with a sprained ankle.
