I’m back to break down the injury report after Florio pinch-hit for me last week during my daughter’s first night back from the hospital.
Remember, the big injury stories go in the rumor mill. This post is for all the other smaller fun stuff you may have missed.
1. The Falcons list Roddy White (thigh) as questionable, but they did that most of last year too. He’s expected to play. Backup running back Jason Snelling (concussion) is out, which means more work for rookie Jacquizz Rodgers.
2. Atlanta should be able to break out of their passing funk, especially with safety Kam Chancellor (quad) doubtful to play.
3. The Bengals are as healthy as any team. Linebacker Dontay Moch (foot) is their only player that will miss Sunday’s game.
4. Good news for the Bears: Panthers starting cornerback Chris Gamble is doubtful following a concussion.
5. Wideout Earl Bennett (chest) and tackle Gabe Carimi (knee) remain out. Safety Chris Harris (hamstring) is listed as questionable, but Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times says Harris will be out a few more weeks.
10. The Chargers will play without starters Antonio Gates (foot) and Quentin Jammer (hamstring). Wideouts Vincent Jackson (abdomen) and Malcom Floyd (groin) should play. Running back Ryan Mathews is ready to roll.
12. TE Aaron Hernandez (knee), T Sebastian Vollmer (back), and DE Mike Wright (concussion) are all out for the Patriots again. Albert Haynesworth (back) is among the questionable players, but hasn’t practiced all week. Safety Patrick Chung (hand) may return.
13. The Saints will be without two offensive line starters: C Olin Kreutz (knee) and T Zach Strief (knee). Marques Colston is expected to return from his collarbone injury. Jonathan Vilma (questionable, knee) is less certain.
14. Aaron Kampman (knee) remains out for the Jaguars. He hasn’t played all year.
15. Cardinals RB Beanie Wells (hamstring) expressed optimism all week that he’d play. He’s questionable, but looks likely to suit up.
20. The Rams list Danny Amendola (elbow) as questionable, but no one expects him to play.
