9 things to know about the Wild Card injury report

1. The Saints already ruled tight end Jimmy Graham (ankle), safety Malcom Jenkins (knee), linebacker Danny Clark (hamstring), and defensive tackle Tony Hargrove (knee).

Jenkins was the best player in the Saints secondary this year, which is saying a lot considering their solid starting corners.  The Saints could be vulnerable to big plays.  Graham brought a new dimension to the team, but the Saints can survive because . . .

2. Tight ends Jeremy Shockey and David Thomas are probable.  Wideout Marques Colston is also probable after having knee surgery last week.  The Saints are playing without Pierre Thomas and Chris Ivory, so the figure to throw even more than usual.

3. The Seahawks are fully healthy.  (That sound you hear is Packers fans muttering under their collective breath.)

4. The Jets list three players as questionable: safety James Ihedigbo (knee, ankle), defensive end Trevor Pryce (hip), and tackle Damien Woody (knee).   Woody is tentatively expected to return to the starting lineup at right tackle.

5. The Colts list 11 guys as questionable.  Some are sure to play like wideout Reggie Wayne.  Others like running back Dominic Rhodes (hip) is tentatively expected to play.  Here are the guys that didn’t practice at all this week:  tackle Ryan Diem (back), cornerback Kelvin Hayden (neck), defensive tackle Antonio Johnson (chest), guard Jamey Richard (concussion), linebacker Clint Session (elbow), and guard Jaimie Thomas (ankle, back).

6.  Every Raven participated in at least a portion of practice this week.  Haloti Ngata, Terrell Suggs, and Ed Reed all missed some practice this week, but they are expected to start despite being listed as questionable.

7. The Chiefs are basically healthy.  Dwayne Bowe was taken off the injury report.  (That sound you hear is Colts fans muttering under their collective breath.)

8. As we mentioned earlier, Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins is expected to play despite being listed as questionable.  Packers safety Atari Bigby (groin),  running back Korey Hall (knee),  and Frank Zombo (knee) are all out.

9. Eagles guard Max Jean-Gilles (ankle) and linebacker Stewart Bradley (elbow) are game-time decisions.  Jean-Gilles missed practice all week.

    Like 8 starters on injured reserve, but other than that Seattle is fully healthy.

    They already ruled them what Greg ? Out ? Active ? Do you even reread the drivel you write to check for mistakes ?

    “Like 8 starters on injured reserve, but other than that Seattle is fully healthy.”

    Yeah ? The Pats currently have about 8 starters on IR as well. Maybe if your personnel department had done their job well you’d have more depth on your team.

    Thanks for letting us know why the Graham injury doesn’t matter:

    “Graham brought a new dimension to the team, but the Saints can survive because . . .”

    Unbelievable. Typos are one thing but when you forget to finish your thought.

    You are just incompetent. It’s a disgrace. You should be embarrassed.

    The author of this thread must have been drunk or high when he wrote it. It has so many mistakes that they are not worth repeating.

    What do Colts fans care about Dwayne Bowe’s status?

  13. favrelous says: Jan 8, 2011 12:11 AM

    Can Aaron Rodgers make it out of the Wild Card round? Not unless favre is the starter.

    It’s a blog, not a master’s thesis, quit busting the guys bells. Besides, you got what he was trying to say.
