This is not a 'for sure' -- just a caution for those trying to trade for Metcalf right now, or for those starting him...and need to have a backup plan just in case. We have no inside info here, we're just speculating/worrying...watch for news on this from Seattle, and updates from us.
You don't have to go sell him off based on this, but we want you to know something on our radar...
From Ross Jacobs: DK Metcalf popped up on the injury report Thursday with a foot injury. His practice was limited.
If it was a fracture a report would already have come out that the x-rays were positive. Since that hasn't happened this could be a number of things, but the two most likely are turf toe or a sprained foot (a Lisfranc injury). Both of these are common injuries and neither is good, although a Lisfranc would be significantly worse. If it's turf toe DK might can play in week 4 but could be limited.
Turf toe is the injury Antonio Gibson dealt with at the end of 2020. If it's a Lisfranc injury then DK is in trouble because these type injuries take a long time to heal and are nearly impossible to play with. He could lose the entire year to it like Eagles G Isaac Seumalo just did against the Cowboys.
This is significant news and should be monitored closely.
