NFL Week 9 Final Injury Report: Kyler Murray True Game-Time Decision

Almost at the halfway point of the NFL season, there's an abundance of injury news to cover. The biggest is the Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry is out indefinitely after undergoing surgery for a foot injury he suffered in Week 8. The Green Bay Packers are without quarterback Aaron Rodgers for their Week 9 game against the Kansas City Chiefs after Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19. Davante Adams was back at practice after missing last week because of a positive COVID-19 test so there is somewhat positive news for the Packers.

Dak Prescott is set to return for the Dallas Cowboys after missing last week's game with a calf injury. Tyrod Taylor was named the starter for the Houston Texans after missing the previous six weeks with a hamstring injury. Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey has been officially activated off injured reserve and he will take the field for the first time since Week 2.
