We handle the biggest injury stories throughout the day in the rumor mill.

The rest goes right here, in Enrico Palazzo’s favorite running segment about the Friday injury report.

Injuries already covered today: Miles Austin, Josh Freeman, Adrian Peterson, Von Miller, Ahmad Bradshaw, and Kevin Smith.   

1. Julio Jones (hamstring) and Michael Turner (groin) are both officially questionable for the Falcons, but they are good bets to play after practicing Friday.  Cornerback Brent Grimes (knee) is out as expected.

2. The Ravens will be without cornerback Chris Carr (back).  Ray Lewis (foot) is a gametime decision for now, but he didn’t practice at all this week.

3. The Browns are still missing starting safety T.J. Ward (foot, finger). Backup running back Montario Hardesty (calf) is questionable.

4. Bucs defensive end Michael Bennett (groin) is out again, so Da’Quan Bowers should make another start.  Josh Freeman (shoulder) and defensive tackle Brian Price (ankle) are both gametime decisions.

5. The Bengals defense could be short a few starters. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap (hamstring) is doubtful. Cornerback Nate Clements (hamstring, questionable) has a better chance to play, but he didn’t practice Friday.

6. LaMarr Woodley (hamstring) is definitely back for the Steelers. He’s probable. Inside linebacker Larry Foote (hamstring) is questionable.

7. The Broncos listed Von Miller (thumb) and wideout Eddie Royal (toe) as questionable after they returned for a limited practice on Friday.

8. The Packers lost three starters to injury on Thanksgiving and they aren’t ready to face the Giants. Linebackers Desmond Bishop (calf), and A.J. Hawk (calf), plus offensive linemen Chad Clifton (hamstring, back) and Josh Sitton (knee) are all out. Clifton has been out a while, but the other injuries are all new.

9. Colts running back Joseph Addai (hamstring) didn’t practice at all Friday after practicing fully the two days before.

10. The Patriots list tackle Sebastian Vollmer (back, foot) as out and linebacker Brandon Spikes (knee) as doubtful. The entire rest of the team is questionable.  Or close to it.

11. The Jets will be without key defensive lineman Mike Devito (knee).  LaDainian Tomlinson is ready to roll.

12. Redskins safety LaRon Landry (groin) is out. Defensive tackle Stephen Bowen (knee) and linebacker London Fletcher (ankle) are both questionable. They were limited in practice Friday.

13. Oakland is still missing most of their best speed players.  Wideout Jacoby Ford (foot), running back Taiwan Jones (hamstring), running back Darren McFadden (foot), and wide receiver Denarius Moore (foot) are all out. The team lists linebacker Rolando McClain (ankle) as questionable even though he didn’t practice all week and was arrested on Thursday.

14. Sam Bradford (ankle) missed practice early in the week before returning Friday for limited work. He had some sort of setback with his ankle. He’s questionable. Defensive end Chris Long (ankle) is also questionable, but says that he’s playing.

15. Braylon Edwards (knee) is doubtful. This is turning into a lost season for him.

16. Tennessee will be without linebacker Barrett Ruud (groin) this week against Buffalo.

17. The Lions officially listed safety Louis Delmas (knee) and cornerback Chris Houston (knee) as doubtful for Sunday night. Don’t be surprised if they are downgraded Saturday. Running back Kevin Smith (ankle) is questionable.

18. The Saints welcome linebacker Jonathan Vilma (knee) back to the mix after a lengthy absence.  He’s probable.

    Good call letting Braylon go in favor of Plaxico.

    Love the joke at #10. Never gets old!

    Oakland has by far the most injuries, yet they keep on winning! “Just Win Baby”!!! I hope they can pull on off against a resurgent Miami team!!

    “Good call letting Braylon go in favor of Plaxico.”

    Not his fault he got hurt and has a checkdown king for a quarterback.

    When Kaepernick is ready, look out.

    You claimed all this week that troy had a concussion even though he was asymptomatic sunday night and has passed every concussion test since…no mention that he’s fully healthy and ready to go?

    Sorry, but I think the Giants and Rams can lay claim to the title “Most Injured” this year.

    I am a die hard life long 49ers fan and also a season ticket holder. even I had to chuckle at trbowman’s post above…. first of all, what on earth have you seen out of kaepernick to make you think he will be any good? Secondly, Edwards has been injured most of the year, which is why the “lost season” comment was made, and even when he has managed to get in the field he gets no seperation, and drops balls which should be caught as he did against the giants in the end zone. these are the reasons he finds himself on the bench more and more, and has very little to do with Alex Smith. When he cant beat out kyle williams or ted ginn fir playing time…. well there is a problem.

    The Giants had a couple dbs go out,OSI was out,tuck,boley,bradshaw,nicks,manningham but that was it.all them didn’t miss extended time.the rams stink anyway but Sam BUSTford was out & the backup did a better job. The Raiders had the most injuries this yr by far. J Campbell,Matt Shaughnessy,Hiram Eugene,Ricky Brown ALL DONE FOR THE SEASON.starters & backups..not to mention our starting cb Chris Johnson who hadn’t played yet. Mcfadden 5 games, Jacoby Ford 5 games, D Moore 2 games, our best players have.missed games. We haven’t played ONE GAME with our whole team playing yet. Yet were 7-4, they’ll be back soon & when they get back watch out NFL

    Exactly…. in fact when anyone can’t beat out Ginn for playing time there’s a problem. He’s a speed threat for sure, but he rarely makes the play. Unfortunately for Bray Bray, rarely is more than he has accomplished himself.

    I believe trbowman is a Bills fan BTW which explains his desire to always talk smack on everyone to mask his deep seeded frustration and pain

  14. spfinne says: Dec 3, 2011 12:17 AM

    makes perfect sense to me goldrush. agreed

  15. jessethegreat says: Dec 3, 2011 1:20 AM

    Not a fan of any of the injured team this year, but Kansas City has more starters injured than either the Giants, Raiders, or Bills. Starting TE, Starting QB, Startig HB, Starting FS etc.

    A Few things here. First of all Carson Palmer has not looked very good and has probably 3-4 years left tops. Typical raiders front office there. Second, the Raiders barely beat the Chicago Bears without Jay Cutler AT home. I don’t think the NFL is overly worried

  17. jsalis13 says: Dec 3, 2011 2:28 AM

    Oh, and Lance Kendricks went down early, Bradford was out, Jackson was out, then williams went down after Jackson, and Danny Ammendola-the guy who was Bradford’s security blanket and catylist of Mcdaniels offense- don;t think he’s played a single snap this season

  18. onewinningpick says: Dec 3, 2011 3:04 AM

    @r8der4lyfe (i can’t believe you made me type that).

    The giants for sure have way more injuries then the Raiders this year. They had I think 7-8 guys on IR by the third PRESEASON game. Guys placed on IR so far this season: Terrell Thomas, Bruce Johnson, Adam Koets, Chad Jones, Marvin Austin, Brian Witherspoon, Clint Sintim, Sage Rosenfels, Jonathan Goff, Domenik Hixon, Justin Tryon, Michael Coe, Michael Clayton, and Will Beatty. All on IR, 14 players, starters and fill-in guys. That list doesn’t even include the myriad starters that have missed significant time this year. Tuck, Osi, Boley, the whole offensive line, etc.
