Good news, NFL-loving friends! For the first time since the start of the 2016 season, our weekly injury report is light on big-name quarterbacks. Other than Big Ben, in fact, most of the game's most important signal-callers are relatively healthy. Now, if they can just stay that way, maybe the games will actually be entertaining moving forward.
Here are the 10 biggest injuries that will shape your favorite team -- and your fantasy squad -- In Week 7.
When the Steelers face the Patriots in the biggest game of Week 7, they'll be without their starting quarterback. Roethlisberger suffered a torn meniscus in Pittsburgh's surprising loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. Despite playing through pain in the second half, Roethlisberger required surgery on his left knee Monday. There is no timetable for his return, although the Steelers reportedly aren't concerned with Roethlisberger's long-term availability.

Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Giants (hip)
While Beckham made it back on the field to reel in a game-winning 66-yard score against the Ravens in Week 6, he told reporters after the game that the hip pointer he suffered during the game "was bad." In fact, Beckham told Giants WR Roger Lewis to be ready to take his place on the final drive. Keep an eye on Beckham's status this week; as long as he's healthy, he should be set for a big game against the Rams this Sunday.
Hyde was in and out of San Francisco's Week 6 loss to the Bills after suffering a shoulder injury in the first half, missing a crucial 4th-and-1 play in Buffalo territory in the third quarter before the game got out of hand. He was spotted in a sling during Tuesday's practice. 49ers coach Chip Kelly told reporters he's unsure about Hyde's status: "They said he had a shoulder and was out. I don't know exactly [the] long-term prognosis of it."

Michael Bennett, DE, Seahawks (knee)
Bennett was the victim of a scary-looking cut block to the right knee against the Falcons, but it appears that he avoided serious injury, according to coach Pete Carroll. "I don’t know enough about that one yet," Carroll said. "He’s had all of the checkups, and there’s not any big findings, so that’s good. But he did get whacked on his knee pretty good. He sounded OK when they communicated with him last night. And the evaluations were nothing serious."

Jordan Reed, TE, Redskins (concussion)
Reed remains in the concussion protocol after first reporting symptoms during practice last week. He missed Washington's Game 6 win against the Eagles and was scheduled to meet with an independent doctor early this week. Coach Jay Gruden said that he hoped to have another update on Reed's status by Wednesday. The Redskins TE has suffered at least six concussions in his NFL career.

Terrell Suggs, LB, Ravens (biceps)
Suggs reportedly suffered a torn biceps during Baltimore's last-minute loss to the Giants in Week 6, but all indications are that the Ravens LB plans to play through the pain if at all possible. "We don't know," Suggs said, after being asked how serious the injury is. "I ain't no doctor. We're going to get it looked at, but you know who I am and what I represent. I'm going to get it looked at and make sure everything is all right."

Russell Okung, LT, Broncos (concussion)
Okung entered the NFL's concussion protocol after Denver's Thursday night loss to the Chargers. He reportedly was taken to a hospital after the game because of his concussion. On Monday, Okung was back at Broncos practice, although he reportedly did not participate.

Terrelle Pryor, WR, Browns (hamstring)
Pryor is dealing with a right hamstring injury that originally sprang up last offseason, but he told reporters this week that he'll do everything he can to play against the Bengals on Sunday. Coach Hue Jackson sounded relatively optimistic as well: "We'll will see how he goes through the week,'' said Jackson. "Hopefully, that's not a big issue, but we'll work on that.'' The 0-6 Browns will certainly need Pryor.
Damarious Randall, CB, Packers (groin)
Randall aggravated a groin injury against the Cowboys on Sunday and was unable to come back into the game. Randall missed Week 5 with a similar injury, and his absence in Week 7 would put the Packers in a precarious situation. CBs Sam Shields and Quinten Rollins are both dealing with injuries of their own, meaning Green Bay might be without its top three corners against the Bears.
Johnson played all but one defensive snap for Houston on Sunday, but he was noticeably limping after the game and is out indefinitely, according to coach Bill O'Brien. Johnson reportedly broke his foot against the Colts in Week 6, although the team has yet to confirm the severity of his injury. Like the Packers, the Texans could be without their top three cornerbacks if Johnson misses Week 7 against the Broncos on Monday night.
