We cover all of the biggest injury stories throughout the day on Friday, but feel free to use this as a one-stop shop to catch up on those posts and any other names worth mentioning that we’ll throw in here every Friday.

Falcons at Redskins

Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garçon isn’t 100 percent yet, but he’s probable for Sunday’s game. Safety Brandon Meriweather is out after last week’s collision with wide receiver Aldrick Robinson, who is probable after suffering a concussion. Falcons safety William Moore is questionable while wide receiver Julio Jones is probable with a hand injury that may or may not have limited him last weekend.

Ravens at Chiefs

The Ravens have just two players on their injury report — tackle Jah Reid is questionable and wide receiver Torrey Smith is probably — while the Chiefs will be without defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey, running back Peyton Hillis and wide receiver Devon Wylie. Linebacker Derrick Johnson and safety Kendrick Lewis are questionable with cornerback Brandon Flowers probable.

Bills at 49ers

Buffalo will be without tackle Cordy Glenn and guard Kraig Urbik and safety Jairus Byrd is questionable. Running back Brandon Jacobs says he’s ready to play, but the 49ers are giving him just a 50/50 shot. Cornerback Carlos Rogers and defensive tackle Isaac Sopoaga are also questionable.

Bears at Jaguars

Bears running back Matt Forte and defensive end Julius Peppers are both probable, but wide receiver Earl Bennett is questionable. Wide receiver Laurent Robinson will miss the game for the Jags after his second concussion is as many weeks and linebacker Daryl Smith will be on the sideline as well.

Browns at Giants

The Browns will likely be without doubtful wide receivers Mohamed Massaquoi and Travis Benjamin, but Josh Cribbs should be in the lineup after getting a probable designation. The Giants have ruled out wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, safety Kenny Phillips, cornerback Jayron Hosley, defensive tackle Rocky Bernard and wide receiver Ramses Barden. Tackle David Diehl and linebacker Keith Rivers, who both missed last week’s game, are doubtful.

Broncos at Patriots

Denver crosses the country without any serious injury concerns. New England will welcome them without wide receiver Julian Edelman and safety Steve Gregory. The man to watch will be tight end Aaron Hernandez, who is questionable after returning to practice on Thursday after missing the last two games with a sprained ankle.

Packers at Colts

Wide receiver Greg Jennings is out for the Packers. The Colts will try to stop the other Packer wideouts without the services of cornerbacks Vontae Davis and Justin King. Linebacker Pat Angerer, guard Joe Reitz and guard Seth Olsen are also out for Indy. Linebacker Dwight Freeney is questionable, which was pretty much his self-assessment as well.

Dolphins at Bengals

The big news in Miami was the appearance of quarterback Ryan Tannehill on the injury report with a thumb injury and the news that cornerback Richard Marshall won’t play because of his back. Running back Reggie Bush is probable. The Bengals should get corners Leon Hall and Nate Clements back, although Jason Allen and Dre Kirkpatrick remain doubtful.

Eagles at Steelers

Linebacker Akeem Jordan has been ruled out for Philly while tackle King Dunlap is questionable. It looks like the Steelers will have linebacker James Harrison, running back Rashard Mendenhall and safety Troy Polamalu back in the lineup as all are probable for the game.

Seahawks at Panthers

The Seahawks will go without guard John Moffitt and defensive tackle Jaye Howard. The Panthers listed linebacker Jon Beason and cornerback Chris Gamble as doubtful and coach Ron Rivera has already discussed how the team will deal with their absence.

Titans at Vikings

Matt Hasselbeck starts at quarterback for the Titans with Jake Locker out. Wide receiver Kenny Britt is questionable after suffering a setback in his return from an ankle injury. The Vikings will be without safeties Mistral Raymond and Andrew Sendejo and linebacker Erin Henderson is questionable after missing the last two games with a concussion.

Chargers at Saints

Kicker Nate Kaeding and cornerback Shareece Wright are both out again this week for San Diego. Wide receiver Lance Moore has been ruled out for the Saints along with running back Travaris Cadet, defensive end Turk McBride and linebacker David Hawthorne. Safety Roman Harper is questionable.

    They should add a bruised ego to the raiders injury report. All that summer trash talk only to show what a disgrace they are. Top D line ha ha ha what a joke, Oakland A’s should ban you from using their field.

    Broncos without injury concerns? They have lost 2 of their starting offensive linemen (one for the year last week). They’ve lost 2 starting defensive linemen for the year. They’ve lost they’re best linebacker for 9 weeks to rampant stupidity.

    How can this be of no concern?
