Highlights of the Wednesday injury report


Rosenthal does a fairly good job (I can’t give him to big of a compliment or he’ll get soft) with the things to know about the Friday injury report, especially when the number in the title actually matches the number in the body of the article.

But the injury watch begins on Wednesday, when the first clear indications emerge as to the men who may miss the next game.

Here’s a summary of the players with widely recognizable names who did or didn’t practice on Wednesday, the first full-blown day of the work week in preparation for Sunday.

For the Cardinals, quarterback Kevin Kolb didn’t miss practice.  He participated on a limited basis with turf toe.  Running back Beanie Wells (knee) and tight end Todd Heap (hamstring) were among the Cardinals who didn’t practice.

Bills receiver Stevie Johnson did not practice, due to a shoulder injury.

Panthers tight end Jeremy Shockey (ribs) did not practice.

Lions running back Jahvid Best (concussion) did not practice; quarterback Matthew Stafford (finger) fully participated.

Bengals receiver A.J. Green (knee) did not practice, along with cornerback Nate Clements (knee) and cornerback Pacman Jones (groin), among others.

Cowboys receiver Miles Austin (hamstring) did not practice.  Dallas running back Felix Jones (ankle) practiced on a limited basis.

Redskins linebacker London Fletcher (ankle) and safety LaRon Landry (Achilles) were among the players who did not practice.

The Browns continue to practice without running back Peyton Hillis (hamstring) and running back Montarrio Hardesty (calf).  Receiver Mohamed Massaquoi (concussion) practiced on a limited basis.

Players missing practice for the Raiders included receiver Jacoby Ford (foot), kicker Sebastian Janikowski (left hamstring), running back Darren McFadden (foot), and defensive lineman Richard Seymour (knee).

Defensive end Julius Peppers (knee) skipped practice in Chicago.  Running back Matt Forte (shoulder) and receiver Devin Hester (ankle) practiced on a limited basis.

Buccaneers defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth (knee) missed practice.  (Get used to it, Raheem.)

Falcons receiver Julio Jones missed practice, due to the hamstring injury he aggravated on Sunday.

For the Eagles, tackle King Dunlap (concussion), receiver Jeremy Maclin (shoulder, hamstring), cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle), and quarterback Michael Vick (ribs) did not practice.

Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw again missed practice, with a foot injury.

Another report will be issued Thursday.  The out/doubtful/questionable/probable labels will be applied on Friday.

    Haynesworth: Injured back while bending down to pick up imaginary pen dropped in front of short skirted waitress, Boizao All U Can Eat Steakhouse.

    Turf Toe is tendinitis in the toe. It generally occurs in the big toe and, as silly as the name sounds, is very painful. It makes planting the foot very difficult which removes the ability to cut and/or to throw the ball.

    Peyton Hillis should be ashamed of himself. I hope no-one gives him a whiff in the offseason.
