World Cup 2022 injury list: Mané, Son, Varane, others in final squads, but James ruled out
Sadio Mané, Heung-Min Son, Raphaël Varane and several other injured stars have been or will be named in their countries' World Cup squads despite injuries that threatened to keep them out of Qatar. They are, to varying degrees, still questionable for the 2022 tournament, which kicks off Nov. 20, but they will be there.

Other prominent players, however, are stuck on an injury list that seems to grow by the day. Argentina lost Giovani Lo Celso, and Mexico lost Jesús "Tecatito" Corona. N'Golo Kante and Paul Pogba have long since been ruled out. Reece James joined them on Thursday.

They have all been done in by this World Cup's unprecedented timing, smack-dab in the middle of club seasons. And others could yet join them on the sidelines.

Below is an incomplete list of the most notable players who've been ruled out for the 2022 World Cup, followed by a list of those who haven't been ruled out but remain doubtful. Both will be updated as the roster deadline (Nov. 14) and kickoff (Nov. 20) approach.
