Week 12 injury news and analysis, part III

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Panthers at Browns

Both sides have big quarterback questions this week. The Panthers have three of their signal-callers on the injury report – including Tony Pike, probable with a right shoulder, and Brian St. Pierre, probable with a right shoulder – but Jimmy Clausen, who has shaken off the effects of a concussion, is the one who will get the starting nod.

You might think the probable status of RB Jonathan Williams would be good news for Carolina, but you’d be wrong (I’m not saying it’s bad news, but it’s kind of meh news). He’s been extremely ineffective this year, and in his absence, Mike Goodson has been very impressive.

Meanwhile, Cleveland QB Colt McCoy is doubtful with an ankle injury, meaning Jake Delhomme, who hasn’t started a game since the season-opener, will face off against his old team. WR Joshua Cribbs, who broke four of his toes two weeks ago, is questionable. He might be on the active roster, but don’t look for him to get too involved with the offense.

Chiefs at Seahawks


Kansas City would feel much better about its prospects to beat Seattle on the road if WR Dexter McCluster and TE Tony Moeaki – both of whom are questionable – can play. McCluster has missed the past four games with a high ankle sprain, but it seems likely he’ll return this week. Moeaki, coming off a concussion two weeks ago, also should play.

The big question for the Seahawks is whether WR Mike Williams (questionable, foot) will play. All week, Seattle has prepared like he wouldn’t play, and as of Friday, he was still in a walking boot. But he’ll also be a gametime decision, so if Williams can look OK in pregame warmups, there’s a chance he might be out there when the game starts.

Dolphins at Raiders


No matter who’s quarterbacking Miami – and indications are pointing toward Chad Henne – the Dolphins will suffer without standout WR Brandon Marshall, who was downgraded today from doubtful to out with a hamstring. Henne, thought to be lost for the season two short weeks ago, likely will get the start in place of former third-stringer Tyler Thigpen.

For Oakland, TE Zach Miller is questionable but probably will play. As will CB Nnamdi Asomugha, G Robert Gallery and WR Darrius Heyward-Bey – all of whom are listed as probable.
