Who's NOT playing today:

Garrett Graham (TE - Texans) Concussion will make James Casey Daniel's backup

Cedric Peerman (RB- Bengals) Brian Leonard will be the Law Firm's backup

Mike Nugent (K - Bengals) Josh Brown might play only a week with Nugents ankle issue

Tim Jennings (CB- Bears) The Bears lose a key piece as this corner really has a good year

Brian Urlacher (LB - Bears) Sounds like he could return in times for the playoffs

Earl Bennett (WR - Bears) The poor Bears are beat up but Alshon Jeffrey is back at least

William Moore (S - Falcons) The best safety in football this year isn't going to go

Ed Dickson (TE - Ravens) Ed could not have had a more injury and disappointing year

James Anderson (LB- Panthers) The Panthers are hurting with Lafell missing time too

Donald Butler (LB- Chargers) San Diego's best linebacker is sitting for this game

Rashard Mendenhall (RB - Steelers) This once first round pick is a healthy scratch on gameday
