First, the players who ARE active today:
Jaguars QB Todd Bouman (who will get the start; Trent Edwards will be the backup); Titans QB Vince Young (see below); Chargers TE Antonio Gates; Ravens TE Todd Heap; Titans WR Kenny Britt (who got into a bar altercation late this week).
David Garrard, QB, Jaguars: This will be the first time since the season finale in 2007 that Garrard won't start at QB for Jacksonville. He suffered a concussion last week against the Titans, and he's not going to play this week.
Chris Chambers, WR, Chiefs: He's been dealing with a finger injury, but coach Todd Haley has said that wasn't the reason he was inactive last week (and probably the same reason he's been deactivated today). Mainly, he hasn't been very good. Chambers, by the way, wasn't on the injury report this week.
Vince Young (active), QB, Titans: He was a gameday decision after sustaining a high ankle sprain last week. He tried to work out this morning, but apparently, it didn't go well enough for him to get the start. Kerry Collins will be the signal caller today.
Johnathan Joseph, CB, Bengals: This is a big loss for the Bengals. Joseph, who's been dealing with a bad forearm, is one of the best young corners in the NFL. This news should make Falcons WR Roddy White a happy boy.
Malcom Floyd, WR, Chargers: It's unfortunate for Floyd that he's dealing with a hamstring issue. The Patriots, the team San Diego is playing today, is succeptible in its pass defense. This could have been a big day for him.
Tom Zbikowski, FS, Ravens: It's a good thing Ed Reed will make his season debut today.
Aaron Maybin, LB, Bills: He's been a disaster this year, playing 13 or fewer snaps in four of Buffalo's five games this year. As coach Chan Gailey says, Maybin is simply struggling to make plays. Which is not good for a 2009 first-round draft pick.
