Oh no.

Running back Austin Ekeler was helped off the field, eventually being put on the cart, with an apparent hamstring injury against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

As of right now, I’d put his chances of returning to this game at zero percent as he looked unable to even put pressure on his left leg. At one point, he was having too much trouble even getting on the cart and the training staff needed to lay him back down on the ground.

We’ll continue to update this with more info, but things are not looking good for RB1.
