Week 12 injury news and analysis, part II

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Vikings at Redskins

Two of Minnesota’s top receivers, Sidney Rice and Bernard Berrian, are questionable. It looks like Rice will play, while Berrian will be a gametime decision. Rice returned last week to play in his first game this season, and he didn’t appear to have any complications with his hip. Meanwhile, Berrian has missed the past two weeks with a bad groin, and he missed practice Thursday (he was limited Wednesday and Friday).

Washington will be without RBs Ryan Torain and Clinton Portis – the former is out this week, and the latter was placed on IR this week – so Keiland Williams will get the start and will be backed up by James Davis.

Making matters (potentially) worse, No. 1 WR Santana Moss is questionable with a knee injury. Coach Mike Shanahan held him out of practice Thursday and then said he felt better Friday. He’ll still be a game-time decision, though.

Eagles at Bears

The big loss to Philadelphia is that CB Asante Samuel, who originally was listed as questionable, has been downgraded to out for Sunday’s game. Samuel was trying to shake off a sprained MCL, and earlier in the week, he talked about trying to play. But he missed all three practices this week and was ruled out today. Look for Joselio Hanson to take his place in the starting lineup.

The Bears have nobody listed on their injury report. Which seems kind of amazing. But true.

Packers at Falcons


Atlanta DE John Abraham, after missing last week with a groin injury, is questionable this week. If he doesn’t play, the Falcons should be OK in the run defense game (Atlanta ranks sixth in the NFL, while Green Bay’s running game is No. 21), but Abraham’s pass-rushing ability surely would help against Packers QB Aaron Rodgers. Abraham, in his 11th season, is having a solid year, recording eight sacks.

Of the nine Packers on the injury, seven – including WR Donald Driver, LB Clay Matthews and CB Charles Woodson – are probable. Green Bay is a little beat up, though, in the secondary. Atari Bigby is out, and S Anthony Smith is doubtful with an ankle.

Buccaneers at Ravens

G Chris Chester, who missed last week with a bad case of cellulitis, is questionable and still could play. One reason Baltimore might not need to rush him back: Tony Moll was adequate while replacing Chester at right guard last week. Although Chester didn’t practice at all this week, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said that wouldn’t necessarily preclude him from playing if he’s healthy enough.

Backup S Tom Zbikowski is listed as questionable with a heel, but with Ed Reed healthy, his absence isn’t as big a deal.

Tampa Bay should be relatively healthy. Four of the five players listed on the injury are probable (DE Kyle Moore is definitely out).

Week 11 injury report analysis Part IV

Posted by Andy Benoit

Cardinals @ Chiefs

Three running backs are questionable for the Cardinals: Beanie Wells (knee), Jason Wright (head) and LaRod Stephens-Howling (hamstring). Defensive backs Greg Toler (foot) and Kerry Rhodes (hand) are also questionable. If they don’t play, then Matt Cassel will just have to find someone else to pick on through the air.

Cassel won’t have TE Tony Moeaki to rely on; the upstart rookie is out after suffering a concussion against Denver. LG Brian Waters also left the Broncos game (groin); his status for Sunday is up in the air. Same goes for RG Ryan Lilja (foot) Starting safety Jon McGraw (knee) remains out, and his backup, Donald Washington (who was a whipping boy last week) is questionable with a calf injury.

Falcons @ Rams

Rookie OLB Sean Weatherspoon (knee) finally had a full week of practice. He’s questionable after missing the past four games. Pass-rushing demon John Abraham, who is playing at a Pro Bowl level this season, is also questionable with a groin. This is not a primetime game, though, so maybe it doesn’t matter if Abraham plays or not. If he does play, he’ll go up against Rams rookie LT Roger Saffold, who practiced all week despite a sore ankle.

Rams wideout Danario Alexander will probably wait one more week to return from his knee injury, though he’s at least listed as questionable.

Buccaneers @ 49ers

The only Buc expected to be out of the lineup is DE Kyle Moore (shoulder). DT Ryan Sims may join him, but neither is a difference-maker individually. Regardless of who plays, Tampa will have trouble with the downhill style of Frank Gore (who, by the way, is probable with a foot).

Niners LT Joe Staley (who is as average as his first name) is out with a fibula. Thus, they’ll rely on sluggish veteran Tony Wragge.
