POSITION:                                                  BACKUP IN CASE:

Runningbacks:

 

Arian Foster (Knee - missed practice Thursday) Ben Tate

Jonathan Stewart (Ankle - no practice all week) DeAngelo Williams         

  Status:  OUT!! he tweeted early this morning good luck to teamate DeAngelo

Trent Richardson (Knee - limited practices)        Brandon Jackson

  Status:  Active - it'll be interesting to see how big of a role he'll have on this offense

Reshard Mendenhall (ACL - full participant all week) Isaac Redmon (Hip) Jonathan Dwyer

  Status:TBD - On Friday, he went from a practicing promise to a doubtful status

Marshawn Lynch (Back Spasms - practiced Tues missed rest) Robert Turbin

  Status:TBD - it's sounding positive going into the early games

 

Wide Receivers:

 

Stevie Johnson (Groin - missed practice Thursday) David Nelson

  Status:  Active  - They'll need their star receiver in a game against a great D

Justin Blackmon (Ankle - practiced in full Thursday) Mike Thomas

Denarius Moore (Foot - practiced in full Thursday)   Rod Streater

Tight Ends:

 

Jermichael Finley (Thigh - practiced in full all week)  D.J. Williams

  Status: TBD - sounds promising

Owen Daniels (Flu - limited in practice Thursday)   Garrett Graham

  Status:  Active  - Look for a bounce back season from this underrated player

Dustin Keller (Hamstring - did not practice Thursday) Jeff Cumberland

  Status:  Active - On a team with few recieving threats they'll need a Sanchez favorite 

 

Who's NOT playing today:

 

Brandon Flowers CB Kansas City Chiefs - Hello Matt Ryan to Julio Jones!

Jabari Greer CB New Orleans Saints - RG3 deep ball potential just increased

Daryl Smith LB Jacksonville Jaguars - Just watch Toby Gerhart have a solid day

Lions DBs Chris Houston / Louis Delmas - 2 starters out for Detroit secondary?  Yipes

Lamar Miller RB Miami Dolphins - just marinate on this rookie for now, he's buried

Pat Angerer LB Indianapolis Colts - no surprise here he's expected to miss a month

Delone Carter RB Indianapolis Colts - interesting how rookie Vick Ballard has passed him
