15 things to know about the Week Two Injury Report

The NFL releases the league’s injury report on Friday evening.  We’ve already updated you on some of the biggest injury news of the day from Byron Leftwich to Kevin Kolb to Shawne Merriman, but inevitably things slip through the cracks.

Thus, we present the Friday night injury report roundup:

1. Giants wideout Hakeem Nicks (ankle) and defensive end Osi Umenyiora are both questionable.  Umenyiora’s status looks shakier.

2. Falcons starting wide receiver Michael Jenkins (shoulder) remains out.  Matt Ryan really needs someone else other than Roddy White to step up.

3. Bills punter Brian Moorman is questionable with a back injury after being limited in Friday’s practice.  Safety Jairus Byrd is back.  We’ll know Moorman’s playing unless the Bills sign someone.

4. Charles Woodson is probable for the Packers.  The most concerning injury for Green Bay appears to be rookie defensive end Mike Neal, who is questionable with a rib injury.  But he sounds more doubtful, according to coach Mike McCarthy.  Green Bay needs Neal to step up with their defensive line depth problems.

5. The Cowboys left no doubt that starting offensive linemen Kyle Kosier and Marc Colombo will return.  They are both listed as probable.  Linebacker Sean Lee is out with a hamstring injury.

6. Jake Delhomme is officially doubtful to play because of his ankle injury.  Linebacker D’Qwell Jackson is out again, but is making progress.  Defensive tackle Shaun Rogers is questionable, but looks ready to go.


7. Patriots wideout Julian Edelman is questionable with a knee injury
after working in a limited fashion at practice all week.  The Patriots
are pretty deep at wideout, so don’t need to rush him back.

8. Not all questionable players are created equal.  Lions safety Louis
Delmas (groin, biceps) should be ready to roll.  Linebacker DeAndre Levy
(groin) is a lot less certain. Defensive end Cliff Avril (knee, finger)
is out.  This is a defense that does not have the depth to withstand
many injuries.

9. Steelers nose tackle Casey Hampton is out.  That should make Chris
Johnson very happy.  Steelers tackle Max Starks is also out, as
expected.

10. Titans defensive linemen Tony Brown (knee) and William Hayes (knee) are both questionable. 

11. Seahawks wideout Mike Williams is probable despite a thigh injury that kept him out of practice earlier in the week. 

12. The Broncos will be without tackle Ryan Harris (ankle) again.
Laurence Maroney (thigh) will miss his first game in Denver.  Guard
Chris Kuper (knee, ankle) and Wesley Woodyard (hamstring) are both
questionable.  Fantasy alert: Eddie Royal should play.

13. Rams running back Steven Jackson and wide receiver Laurent Robinson
are both probable despite missing practice earlier in the week. 

14. The Raiders are a little banged up. Wideout Chaz Schilens remains
out and guard Robert Gallery is doubtful with a hamstring injury. 
Running back Michael Bush
(thumb), safety Hiram Eugene (hamstring), cornerback Chris Johnson (neck), and defensive end Richard Seymour
(hamstring) are all questionable.

15. We don’t actually have another point.  15 just sounded better than 14.  Thanks for making it this far.  You are a diehard and we like you better than the rest.

    ugh! great…. the Bills best player is injured?

    15. Bills RB C.J. Spiller is questionable because he is pissed off that the Bills drafted him

    15. Revis will use his fake hamstring injury as an excuse for getting roasted by Moss this week.

    GASP…..an entire post without a mention of the Vikings…….will wonders ever cease?

    ————————————————–
    Awesome! I was just thinking same thing. This way if he gets burned by Moss he can claim hammy issues, if he does well (not likely) he can claim he is a beast. He’s got both bases covered that way with all the smack-talk the Yets provide to media.

    Tom Brady is listed as probable with a right shoulder injury. I’m concerned that it could keep him out for the big game against the Jets, this Sunday at Giants Stadium. I hope he will be able to play and do well.

    Maroney will miss 1st game in denver. as a Patriots fan, I am shocked.

    FYI
    Brady has been listed like that (right shoulder-Probable) every day and every year for at least the past 8 or 9 years… maybe more.
    It’s the norm.

    15. Haynesworth’s “injury” is only an excuse so they don’t have to keep him active as they wait and pray for an injury to another DT in the hope that it increases his trade value.

  10. ohandsixteenforever says: Sep 17, 2010 9:59 PM

    Almost every link to Seattle’s Mike Williams goes to Tampa Bay’s Mike Williams. I’m not sure why this bothers me but it does.

  11. BradyGazelle says: Sep 17, 2010 10:05 PM

    Yeah – Brady is hardly ever listed as injured, so it is a bit concering – but I’m sure he will play this week at Giants Stadium.

  12. 8man says: Sep 17, 2010 10:22 PM

    I’m questionable for the Patriots-Jets game. It’s not being shown locally.
    I’ll have to find a way to stay sober enough after the 1pm games to make it to a local bar to watch it…..

  13. You're An Idiot says: Sep 17, 2010 10:26 PM

    15. Dirty Sanchise’s psyche after the Pats get a lead of any kind. Carson Palmer is about the only USC QB to have a backbone.

    Guys—
    Look at this link about Tom’s shoulder… it reads in part….
    http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/20630697/
    “Brady was on the field during the time the media was allowed to view practice, but the team later reported that had he “limited participation.” Patriots coach Bill Belichick was not available for comment.
    For several seasons the two-time Super Bowl MVP has been a regular on the weekly injury report with the shoulder problem, which is believed to date to the 2002 season.”
    Again guys this a the norm and he WILL be playing Sunday… Bank on it!
    Yea the link is afew years old but it points to fact that Brady has been listed like this since 2002.
    It’s Cronic just like Rex Ryan’s big mouth!

  15. hardhitter47 says: Sep 17, 2010 10:29 PM

    awww…shucks

  17. Schatt Maub says: Sep 17, 2010 10:41 PM

    15. Brett Favre’s crank is doubtful.

  18. hotchick says: Sep 17, 2010 10:49 PM

    Really… We are missing the humor in the posts expressing concern over Brady’s shoulder, even with the assist of mentioning the game against the Jets is at Giants stadium?

  19. Schatt Maub says: Sep 17, 2010 11:13 PM

    15. Lapbandasaurus Rex’s incisors are questionable on account of he tried to eat concrete.

    LOL They are being sarcastic Patstransplant. Everybody knows the Brady deal. That is the joke.
    Relax

  21. I♥Patriots says: Sep 18, 2010 12:40 AM

    Are you guys serious about the Brady injury? God, I hope not. He is listed on every injury report as Probable – Right Shoulder and has been for years.

  22. BP says: Sep 18, 2010 12:53 AM

    Brady is on the injury report every week so they don’t ever have to report his real injuries.

  23. patpatriotagain says: Sep 18, 2010 1:47 AM

    the most concerning injury for the packers is ummm RYAN GRANT?

  24. DynastyDays says: Sep 18, 2010 8:14 AM

    15. Cowboys Offensive Coordinator is questionable…….at his job!!!!!

    The only chance the Pats have is to roll the dice on that lizard formula of yours Doc.
    If Brady can regrow that shoulder and not get distracted hunting Spider-Man then the Pats will have a chance.
