Over the course of the week, there are a lot of posts about the most prominent injured players but we know that you might not see all of them and that some others may fall through the cracks. As a result, we’ll comb through all the injury reports every Friday afternoon so that there’s one stop for all the news from every team playing on Sunday. So, without further delay, the injury report roundup for Week Nine of the 2014 season.
Jaguars at Bengals
The Jaguars ruled out cornerback Will Blackmon (finger) and defensive end Andre Branch (groin) and linebacker Dekoda Watson (hamstring) is questionable. Cincinnati expects to have wide receiver A.J. Green (toe, questionable) back in the lineup, but they won’t have running back Giovani Bernard (hip) or linebacker Vontaze Burfict (knee). Cornerback Darqueze Dennard (hamstring), linebacker Rey Maualuga (hamstring) and guard Kevin Zeitler (calf) all drew the doubtful tag, which is actually a step forward for Maualuga after he missed multiple games.
Buccaneers at Browns
The Buccaneers don’t expect to have tackle Anthony Collins (foot, doubtful) and running back Doug Martin (ankle, doubtful). They definitely won’t have kick returner Trindon Holliday (hamstring) or linebacker Brandon Magee (knee), but it could go either way with defensive end Michael Johnson (hand, questionable). The Browns ruled out tight end Jordan Cameron (concussion) and defensive end Phil Taylor (knee) will miss another game. Wide receiver Rodney Smith (hamstring) is questionable.
Cardinals at Cowboys
Safety Tony Jefferson (concussion) is questionable for the Cardinals, while cornerback Patrick Peterson (concussion) is probable. Running back Stepfan Taylor (calf) has been ruled out and tight end Troy Niklas (ankle) is questionable. The Cowboys will let us know if quarterback Tony Romo (back, questionable) is playing on Sunday behind an offensive line that could be without guard Ronald Leary (groin, questionable). Tackle Doug Free (foot) will miss another week.
Eagles at Texans
The Eagles expect center Jason Kelce (sports hernia surgery, probable), running back Darren Sproles (knee, probable) and guard Todd Herremans (biceps, probable) to be in the lineup. Safety Nate Allen (hamstring, questionable) will wait to have his fate determined over the weekend. The Texans listed linebacker Jadeveon Clowney (illness) as questionable, although coach Bill O’Brien’s tone was doubtful while discussing Clowney’s availability. Linebacker Brian Cushing (knee) is also questionable after missing last week’s game.
Jets at Chiefs
The already skeletal Jets cornerback corps should be without Darrin Walls (calf, knee) after the team listed him as doubtful. Quarterback Geno Smith (shoulder) is questionable on the injury report, but the team has moved on to Michael Vick either way. Chiefs coach Andy Reid said safety Eric Berry (ankle, probable) will play for the first time since Week Two. So will quarterback Alex Smith (shoulder, probable), but wide receiver Donnie Avery (groin), cornerback Jamell Fleming (hamstring), linebacker Josh Martin (hamstring, knee) and cornerback Christopher Owens (knee) are all out.
Chargers at Dolphins
Linebacker Manti Te’o (foot), cornerback Jason Verrett (shoulder) and running back Ryan Mathews (knee) are all out, although Mathews did practice on Friday. Safety Jahleel Addae (concussion) is doubtful and linebacker Jerry Attaochu (hamstring) is questionable after missing the last two games. The Dolphins are holding out hope for guard Daryn Colledge (illness, back) and linebacker Koa Misi (ankle) after listing each of them as questionable, but tight end Dion Sims (toe) won’t play.
Redskins at Vikings
As you’ve likely heard, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III (ankle, probable) is expected to return to the starting lineup. Cornerback Bashaud Breeland (knee) is questionable after getting hurt at Friday’s practice. Tight end Kyle Rudolph (sports hernia surgery) remains out for the Vikings, cornerback Jabari Price (hamstring) is questionable and everyone else on the 53-man roster is healthy enough to play.
Rams at 49ers
The Rams won’t be taking defensive tackle Aaron Donald (shoulder), linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar (toe), cornerback Janoris Jenkins (knee) or safety Rodney McLeod (knee) with them to St. Louis. Cornerback Trumaine Johnson (knee, probable) is expected to play for the first time this year. Toe injuries have left 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis and cornerback Tramaine Brock questionable to play in the NFC West matchup.
Broncos at Patriots
Safety Quinton Carter (hamstring), tight end Virgil Green (calf) and linebacker Steven Johnson (ankle) are all questionable for the Broncos, who will play without running back Montee Ball (groin) again this week. Running back Ronnie Hillman (shoulder, probable) looks good to go, however. Defensive end Chandler Jones (hip) is out for New England. Defensive lineman Dominique Easley (knee), safety Nate Ebner (finger), tackle Cameron Fleming (finger) and wide receiver Matt Slater (shoulder) have been listed as questionable.
Raiders at Seahawks
The Raiders don’t expect cornerback Carlos Rogers (knee, doubtful) to play. If he doesn’t, he’ll join tight end David Ausberry (foot), wide receiver Vincent Brown (hamstring), cornerback Chimdi Chekwa (hamstring) and cornerback Keith McGill (groin) on the sideline. The Seahawks ruled out defensive tackle Jordan Hill (ankle), safety Jeron Johnson (concussion), cornerback Byron Maxwell (calf), tight end Zach Miller (ankle), linebacker Malcolm Smith (groin) and linebacker Bobby Wagner (toe). Questionable tags were placed on safety Kam Chancellor (groin), tackle Russell Okung (calf), center Stephen Schilling (knee) and center Max Unger (foot), which could make for a lot of street clothes if game-time calls go the wrong way.
Ravens at Steelers
Baltimore will roll into Pittsburgh without wide receiver Michael Campanaro (thigh) and cornerback Jimmy Smith (foot). They’ll hold off on decisions about defensive end Chris Canty (wrist), tight end Owen Daniels (knee) and guard Marshal Yanda (knee) after listing them as questionable. Cornerback Ike Taylor (forearm) and safety Ross Ventrone (hamstring) were ruled out by the Steelers, whose injury report is otherwise comprised of probable players.
