POSITION: BACKUP IN CASE:
Quarterbacks: - John Skelton will miss a week or two with a low ankle sprain - if you are in a massive league look for Kevin Kolb's availability
Jonathan Stewart (Ankle - missed practice all week) Mike Tolbert
Never miss a local story.
Status: Inactive! The short turnaround hurt JStews come back from a nagging ankle
Ahmad Bradshaw (Neck - this one will keep him out a while) Andre Brown
Status: interesting to see the first rounder take a backseat last week in favor of Brown
Steven Jackson (Groin - absent all week) Daryl Richardson
Status: Active! When healthy he keeps Richardson on the bench. "When....." that is
Reshard Mendenhall (ACL - full participant all week) Isaac Redmon (Hip) Jonathan Dwyer
Status: OUT! Strange to take 1st team reps for two weeks and then be ruled out
Mikell Leshoure (Knee - strained MCL) Kevin Smith
Status: No typo here, early reports are that Kevin Smith may take a back seat
Hakeem Nicks (Back - ) Ramses Barden
Status: Nicks was declared out on Wednesday
Pierre Garcon (Shoulder - practiced in full Thursday) Aldrick Robinson
Status: OUT!! This shoulder injury looks to be a lingering malady. Deploy Hankerson!
Calvin Johnson (Ankle - missed practice Thursday) Titus Young
Status: He returned to practice and just looks to be resting as the top option
Austin Collie (Concussion - practiced all week) Lavon Brazill
Status: ACTIVE! Welcome back from his gazilion concussions. Goodbye Donnie Avery.
Jeremy Maclin (Hip Injury - missed practice early is now limited) Damarius Johnson
Status: OUT! With Riley Cooper suffering too, Damarius Johnson and Avant will pick up slack
Jermichael Finley (Thigh - practiced in full all week) D.J. Williams
Antonio Gates (Ribs - limited in practice Thursday) Randy McMichael
Status: TBD! Late game alert
Dustin Keller (Hamstring - did not practice Thursday) Jeff Cumberland
Status: OUT! This year all Keller has contributed is a 7 yard pass. Ouch
Who's NOT playing today:
Tony Scheffler(Lions) Detroit uses plenty of two tight end sets. Will Heller? or more Titus?
Kevin Boss (Chiefs) Another Inactive Tight End. Doubt you owned him unless deep league
Dwight Freeney (Colts) the dreaded high ankle sprain
Erin Henderson (Vikings) - The Vikings lose their middle linebacker. Lots of running room for Gore!
Rashad Jennings (Jaguars) - another week without MoJo's backup - Montel Owens is your man
Leon Hall (Bengals) - Cincy loses a starting cornerback. Reassuring news for RG3
