Tony Pollard - Fantasy Football Rankings, Draft Sleepers, NFL Injury News

Below you will find our fantasy football injuries roundup for running backs as of January 25th, heading into the third week of playoff action.

There have been new developments surrounding the injury statuses of various NFL running backs, including Christian McCaffrey, Tony Pollard, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

The NFL playoffs are in full force, which means that DFS and gambling continue to be quite popular methods for football fans to satisfy their fantasy craving. These are some key running back injuries that managers will want to check on throughout the days leading up to the Conference Championships. Let's look at the updates for some running backs and see whether they may play this weekend.

Christian McCaffrey Injury Update

McCaffrey (calf contusion) is being evaluated on a day-to-day basis. While he should play against the Eagles this week, his participation in practice is still worth monitoring on Wednesday. Regardless of whether McCaffrey is 100 percent on Sunday, Elijah Mitchell should continue to see meaningful touches out of the backfield.


Tony Pollard Injury Update

Pollard (ankle, fibula) suffered a brutal leg injury on Sunday night and underwent surgery on Tuesday. The 25-year-old required a tightrope procedure to correct his high-ankle sprain, and he'll also work on rehabbing a fibula fracture. The latter issue won't require any surgery or casting since the fibula is non-weight-bearing. Pollard is scheduled to hit free agency this offseason but has been rumored as a priority re-signing for the Cowboys. It remains to be seen how much his injury impacts negotiations.


Clyde Edwards-Helaire Injury Update

Edwards-Helaire (ankle) was designated to return last week but was never officially activated from injured reserve. With that said, he has made significant progress and continues to inch closer to playing. There's a strong possibility that his return to the 53-man roster could be imminent after the Chiefs cut Chris Lammons.
