6 things to know about the Wild Card injury report

We’ve already covered the biggest injury news in the Rumor Mill.

The rest goes right here, in the weekly injury report post that needs to take it down a notch.

1. The following players were already written about Friday: Lance Moore, Jonathan Vilma, Jake Ballard, Stephen Nicholas, and Maurkice Pouncey.

2. The Bengals will likely be without safety Taylor Mays (hamstring) and linebacker Dontay Moch (illness). They are both doubtful. The rest of the Bengals team is healthy.

3. The Texans are as healthy as they have been in a while. Cornerback Jason Allen (back), linebacker Bryan Braman (neck), and safety Troy Nolan (ankle) are questionable. All three practiced during the week. Allen should be out there. Andre Johnson and T.J. Yates are ready to roll.

4. Lions safety Chris Harris (back) is doubtful. Louis Delmas (knee) is back in the mix for Detroit.

5. Even though multiple Pittsburgh reporters said Maurkice Pouncey was out for Sunday with his ankle injury, Pouncey is listed as questionable.  Cornerback Cortez Allen (shoulder) and running back Mewelde Moore (knee) are out.

Steelers linebacker Lamarr Woodley (hamstring) is listed as probable and will start.

6. Brian Dawkins (neck) is officially out for the Broncos, as expected.  Running back Spencer Larsen (knee) is doubtful, while safety David Bruton (achilles) and cornerback Jonathan Wilhite (illness) are questionable.

    If only Schaub and Mario were healthy..

    Swapping Harris for Delmas should be HUGE for the Lions secondary, and man do they need that boost for tomorrow night…

    Eagles vs Broncos for the Super Bowl?

  5. doob187 says: Jan 6, 2012 7:47 PM

    Ricky deserves a ring almost as much as Marino, I agree. Let’s go Ravens!!

    Bathroom Ben’s injury is listed as “embellish”, meaning it’s only a GRADE ONE ankle sprain but he will be limping and grimacing when the cameras are on him. Let’s all say a prayer for this warrior.

    Ricky deserves a ring? Isn’t this the guy who quit on his team to smoke a bunch of dope…if that’s the case, then Rae Carruth deserves a ring.

    @steelerhypocrite

    You forgot the Jet’s injury report for their game.

    Ricky Williams still plays?

  11. danielwold says: Jan 6, 2012 9:19 PM

    dope is what cops use a term for drugs. the guy likes to toke it up. big deal

  12. bleed4philly says: Jan 6, 2012 9:21 PM

    No Dawkins = No Chance

  13. 69finfan says: Jan 6, 2012 9:25 PM

    I too wish the Fins were in the playoffs, maybe next year. Ricky was/is a good running back and during his good days with the Fins I loved Ricky, weed or no weed but deserving of a SB ring almost as much as Marino? Cmon man.

    Eagles vs Broncos for the Superbowl maybe next year. You need to leave the crack alone and I am not talking about the crack your wife is sniffing when the plumber comes over.

  15. tooz72 says: Jan 6, 2012 9:51 PM

    then Jets will sign Carruth in 8-10 years

    If Ricky Williams deserves a ring, then so does LT, Shaun Alexander, priest Holmes, Clinton portis, Thomas jones, Curtis Martin, and on and on and on…

    Man, the lions will be screwed without Chris Harris!

    Just kidding, both the team and the player are overrated.
