We cover all of the biggest injury stories throughout the week and 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.

Bills at Cardinals

The Bills are without defensive end Mark Anderson this week and they are without tackle Cordy Glenn and guard Kraig Urbik for the second straight game. Guard Chad Rinehart and center Eric Wood are both questionable, so the offensive line could be a trouble spot for Buffalo this weekend. Defensive end Mario Williams is listed as probable this week after his absence from the report caused an issue for Buffalo last week. Cardinals running back Anthony Sherman is doubtful, but it looks like they will have LaRod Stephens-Howling and William Powell in the lineup. Defensive end Darnell Dockett is questionable and quarterback John Skelton is probable.

Bengals at Browns

Wide receiver A.J. Green is probable for the Bengals, as are cornerbacks Adam Jones and Terence Newman. Rookie corner Dre Kirkpatrick is questionable after his first two full practices of the year. Wide receivers Mohamed Massaquoi and Jordan Norwood are out for the Browns while Travis Benjamin is doubtful. Brandon Weeden’s ego might not be his only problem this weekend.

Cowboys at Ravens

Defensive tackle Jay Ratliff appears set for his first game of the year after being listed as probable while linebacker Anthony Spencer is questionable. Punter Brian Moorman is out, so Chris Jones will likely need to land on the right side of questionable for the Cowboys to avoid a roster move. Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata is one of two probable Ravens.

Lions at Eagles

Safety Louis Delmas is questionable as he attempts to make his 2012 debut and defensive end Cliff Avril is also questionable for the Lions. The Eagles have no serious injury issues this week.

Colts at Jets

Running back Donald Brown and linebacker Robert Mathis will each miss this game after picking up injuries in the win over the Packers. Cornerback Vontae Davis is doubtful after missing that game. The Jets expect to have tight end Dustin Keller, wide receiver Stephen Hill and center Nick Mangold are all expected to play, but the team might not have defensive tackle Sione Pouha.

Chiefs at Buccaneers

The Chiefs have ruled out quarterback Matt Cassel, running back Peyton Hillis and defensive end Glenn Dorsey. Buccaneers defensive tackle Roy Miller is questionable with a back issue.

Vikings at Redskins

Vikings wide receiver Jerome Simpson is questionable after experiencing weakness in his legs last week and running back Adrian Peterson is probable with his ankle sprain. Quarterback Robert Griffin III is expected to play after practicing all week without any setbacks in his recovery from a concussion. He and wide receiver Pierre Garçon are listed as questionable.

Patriots at Seahawks

On the big injury report of life, you could argue that we’re all questionable. Or Patriots coach Bill Belichick could, anyway. The Patriots have their normal clutch of questionable players. Among the biggest names — tight end Rob Gronkowski, linebacker Dont’a Hightower, wide receivers Wes Welker and Julian Edelman — is tight end Aaron Hernandez who Belichick said could be a game-time decision on Sunday. Guard John Moffitt is out for the Seahawks, but running back Marshawn Lynch appears good to go after being listed as probable.

Giants at 49ers

The Giants will be without safety Kenny Phillips, defensive tackle Rocky Bernard and running back Andre Brown. Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is questionable after missing the last three games, a designation he shares with tackle David Diehl and cornerback Corey Webster. The 49ers will have quarterback Alex Smith, who is listed as probable after spraining his finger last week. Running back Brandon Jacobs is questionable but he is absolutely, positively not frustrated about that. Unless it’s one of the days he is frustrated by that.

Raiders at Falcons

The Raiders return from the bye week relatively healthy, although tackle Khalif Barnes and cornerback Shawntae Spencer remain out. Defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux and linebacker Stephen Nicholas are questionable for the home team.

Rams at Dolphins

The Rams knew that wide receiver Danny Amendola and tackle Rodger Saffold would be out long before Friday and the rest of the team is in good shape otherwise heading into Miami. The Dolphins will be missing cornerback Richard Marshall and running back Daniel Thomas this weekend, but running back Reggie Bush is probable after dancing on and off the injury report this week.

Packers at Texans

Wide receiver Greg Jennings is down again for the Packers. Their other injured starters, tight end Jermichael Finley and defensive tackle B.J. Raji, are questionable. Texans safety Quintin Demps is out and the rest of the team’s injury report is made up of probable players you’ll likely be seeing on Sunday night.

    How is that Peyton Hillis pickup working out for the Chiefs?
