Macon TelegraphNovember 24, 2012 

POSITION:                                                  BACKUP IN CASE:



 Alex Smith (Concussion)                     Colin Kapernick

   Status:  OUT!  Roll with the speedy Nevada QB this week against the shaky Saints D

Michael Vick (Concussion)                    Nick Foles

   Status: OUT!  Nick Foles looked average against the Cowboys and atrocious againstSKins

Blaine Gabbert (Shoulder - needs surgery)Chad Henne

   Status: OUT!  Gabbert was placed on injured reserve so look to Henne for the rest o year 

Byron Leftwich (Shoulder/ Cracked Ribs) Charlie Batch

   Status: OUT!  He broke ribs Sunday night so look to Charlie Batch as the new leader

Jay Cutler (Concussion)                         Jason Campbell

    Status: Active!  He'll get the start in a key divisional game and boost the offense

New Starters: Ryan Lindley / Brady Quinn



Darren McFadden (high ankle sprain)                          Marcel Reece

  Status: OUT!  Marcel Reece almost got 100 yards receiving and rushing last week

Willis McGahee (Torn Knee - Injured Reserve)               Ronnie Hillman

   Status: OUT!  Don't count out Lance Ball either in an unclear new backfield situation

LeSean McCoy (Concussion)       Bryce Brown

  Status:OUT!  Monday night will be a skeleton crew for the Eagles.  Former No.1 recruit Bryce Brown takes over against a Panthers D that struggles to stop the run

Darren Sproles (Hand - missed practice Thursday)                     Mark Ingram

  Status:   Late Game- TBD!

Fred Jackson (Concussion)             C.J. Spiler

   Status: ACTIVE!  but on a snap count, there may be better options

 New Starters: Jalen Parmalee / Chris Wells / James Starks

Isaac Redman = Active!

Wide Receivers:


Julio Jones (Hamstring - this one will be a true game time decision)Harry Douglas

  Status: Active!  But he'll be pretty limited so don't expect too much

Dwayne Bowe (Ribs- no practice all week!)                                    Steve Breaston

   Status: ACTIVE!  Start as you normally would

Donnie Avery (Hip Injury - missed practice early is now limited)      T.Y. Hilton

  Status: ACTIVE!  T.Y. Hilton has had big games in two of the last three games though

Antonio Brown (Knee Swelling)                                                     Emmanuel Sanders

   Status: OUT!  Jerricho Cotchery will miss this too which really hurts Charlie Batch

Percy Harvin ( Shoulder - missed practice all week)                        Jerome Simpson

    Status: OUT!  did not travel with the team so get him out of your lineups

Danny Amendola (Shoulder - very limited)                                             Chris Givens

    Status: LATE game - TBD

Andrew Hawkins (Knee - no practice all week)                                       Mohammed Sanu

    Status: OUT!  You might want to consider another Bengal receiver with this matchup but not Armon Binns as he'll miss this one too


Tight Ends:


Dennis Pitta (Concussion - did not practice Thursday)                    Ed Dickson

  Status:  OUT!  get ready to have a backup plan if you're starting him

 Coby Fleener (Shoulder)                                                            Dwayne Allen

   Status: OUT!  This one was close but it looks like his college teammate misses another


Who's NOT playing today:

 Richard Seymour DT (Raiders) - Seymour provides a good veteran presence when healthy

Jerricho Cotchery WR (Steelers) - Cotchery will miss the game as will Antonio Brown yikes!

Eric Wright CB (Buccaneers) - He reinjured an Achilles and could miss a month!
