Week Four injury report roundup


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.

Ravens at Bills

Ravens running back Ray Rice (hip) is questionable, but sounded optimistic about playing if there were no setbacks. Several other Ravens are questionable, including defensive tackle Chris Canty (thigh) and linebacker Arthur Brown (chest). The Bills will play another week without cornerbacks Stephon Gilmore (wrist) and Ron Brooks (foot) again this week, but are holding out hope for safety Jairus Byrd (foot) and cornerback Leodis McKelvin (hamstring).

Bengals at Browns

Doubtful is the word of the week in the Bengals secondary. Cornerback Leon Hall, safety Reggie Nelson and cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick are all listed that way with hamstring injuries. All the better, then, that cornerback Terence Newman (knee) is probable. The Browns are without quarterback Brandon Weeden (thumb), linebacker Quentin Groves (ankle) and defensive lineman Billy Winn (quadriceps). Linebacker Jabaal Sheard (knee) is doubtful, opening the door for Barkevious Mingo to start, while defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin (calf) is probable.

Bears at Lions

Bears cornerback Charles Tillman (knee/groin) is questionable for the second straight week. The Lions look like they’ll be down two wide receivers with Nate Burleson (arm) out and Patrick Edwards (ankle) doubtful. Defensive end Ziggy Ansah (abdomen) is questionable for the Lions. So are tackles Jason Fox and Corey Hilliard, both of whom have groin injuries.

Seahawks at Texans

The Seahawks are ailing on the offensive line with center Max Unger (arm) and tackle Breno Giacomini (knee) both listed as doubtful. Cornerback Brandon Browner (hamstring) and defensive end Red Bryant (back) are both questionable. For the Texans, wide receiver Andre Johnson (shin) is expected to start and left tackle Duane Brown (toe) will be a game-time decision. Cornerbacks Jonathan Joseph (toe) and Kareem Jackson (illness) are also questionable.

Colts at Jaguars

The Colts will head to Florida without running back Ahmad Bradshaw (neck), defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois (groin) and safety LaRon Landry (ankle). Wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (toe) didn’t practice Friday, but he’s probable. The Jaguars won’t have two wide receivers — Mike Brown (back) and Stephen Burton (concussion) — and two defensive backs — Dwayne Gratz (ankle) and Dwight Lowery (concussion) — on Sunday. Tight end Marcedes Lewis (calf) is set to play for the first time this season and quarterback Blaine Gabbert (thumb) will be back under center.

Giants at Chiefs

Eli Manning may have to deliver the ball quickly behind an offensive line that’s missing center David Baas (neck) and guard Chris Snee (hip). Cornerback Corey Webster (hip) will miss his second straight game while safety Cooper Taylor (shoulder) and linebacker Jacquian Williams (knee) are questionable. Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce (knee) is out, while guard Jeff Allen (groin), cornerback Brandon Flowers (knee) and tight end Anthony Fasano (ankle/knee) are questionable.

Steelers vs. Vikings (in London)

Steelers Running back Le’Veon Bell (foot) is on track to make his NFL debut after being listed as probable. Defensive end Brett Keisel (hamstring) and tight end Heath Miller (knee) are also probable. The Vikings will be missing cornerback Chris Cook (groin) and safety Jamarca Sanford (hamstring) from their secondary while Matt Cassel takes over at quarterback for Christian Ponder (rib).

Cardinals at Buccaneers

Defensive tackle Dan Williams will miss a second straight game while away from the Cardinals following the death of his father and linebacker Kevin Minter (hamstring) will miss the game as well. Safety Rashad Johnson is questionable after losing part of a finger in last week’s game. Mike Glennon’s first start for the Buccaneers could be impacted negatively if questionable wide receivers Vincent Jackson (rib) and Mike Williams (hamstring) can’t play. Cornerback Michael Adams (knee), offensive lineman Gabe Carimi (illness), tight end Tom Crabtree (ankle) and defensive tackle Derek Landri (knee) are all out.

Jets at Titans

The Jets ruled out running back Chris Ivory and cornerback Dee Milliner with hamstring injuries. Rookie tackle Oday Aboushi is also out with a knee injury and a slew of Jets, including tight end Kellen Winslow (knee) and defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson (shoulder), are probable. Running back Shonn Greene (knee) and defensive tackle Sammie Hill (ankle) are out for the Titans, while wide receiver Kenny Britt (neck/ribs) and tight end Delanie Walker (toe) are both questionable.

Eagles at Broncos

Safety Patrick Chung (shoulder) is doubtful after missing practice all week, but the only other Eagle on the injury report is probable tackle Jason Peters (finger). Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey (foot) is questionable once again for the Broncos, a designation he shares with safety Duke Ihenacho (ankle) and tight end Joel Dreessen (knee).

Redskins at Raiders

Tight ends Fred Davis (ankle) and Jordan Reed (thigh) are questionable for the Redskins, as are kicker Kai Forbath (groin), linebacker Brandon Jenkins (ankle) and cornerback Jerome Murphy (non-football related). The Raiders won’t have safety Tyvon Branch (ankle) or left tackle Menelik Watson (knee) on Sunday, but they’re waiting to make a call on quarterback Terrelle Pryor (concussion).

Cowboys at Chargers 

The Cowboys will play without wide receiver Miles Austin (hamstring), but wide receiver Dwayne Harris (hip) expects to play after being listed as questionable. Cornerback Morris Claiborne (shoulder) and defensive end DeMarcus Ware (neck) are listed as probable. Wide receiver Malcom Floyd (neck) remains out for the Chargers, who may also be shorthanded on the offensive line. Guard Jeromey Clary (clavicle) and guard Chad Rinehart (toe) are doubtful and tackle King Dunlap (concussion) is questionable. Cornerback Shareece Wright (hamstring) is also questionable.

Patriots at Falcons

Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola (groin) and tight end Rob Gronkowski (back, forearm) are questionable again this week and there are conflicting reports about their chances of being on the field. Wide receiver Matt Slater (wrist) is out and right tackle Sebastian Vollmer (foot) is questionable after missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday. Running back Steven Jackson (hamstring) is out for the second straight week and the Falcons listed wide receiver Roddy White (ankle), left tackle Sam Baker (knee, ankle), cornerback Asante Samuel (thigh) and wide receiver Julio Jones (knee) as questionable.
