Week Six injury report roundup

AP

Week Six kicked off on Thursday with an Eagles win and it continues with 12 more games on Sunday, which means that the 24 teams in those games submitted their final injury reports of the week on Friday.

Questionable players are uncertain to play, doubtful players are unlikely to play and out should be self-explanatory. Players who are on active rosters and don’t appear below should be considered healthy enough to play barring any announcements on Saturday. The teams playing on Monday night won’t release their injury reports until Saturday and are not listed here.

With that housekeeping out of the way, here are all the injury reports for Sunday.

  1. So the Patriots didn’t even list Brady as questionable during the week that he revealed he has an injured shoulder? USed to be that Brady was questionable every single week, just because Belichick.

  2. The Chargers sure got their revenge on the Eli Giants. All those Giants injuries were suffered during that game. Manning hasn’t besten them in 4 tries after spurning them in 2004. When you break with NFL protocol as a number 1 draft pick and threaten the competitive balance by refusing to go to the team that earned the right to draft you, well we see what happens. Two championships that deserve asterisks and THIS SEASON.

  3. The Packers are missing their best CB and starting safety, maybe their other starting CB, possibly both starting OTs, 2 LBs (Thomas was a starter), and a starting RB.

    If I had to choose between losing a starting RB or top CB, I’d lose the RB. It’s a passing league. In the Packers case, they lose both.

    Still should be a win, but stranger things have happened.

  4. Everybody listed for the Arizona Cardinals will all play according to Bruce Arians. Now that AZ will F-I-N-A-L-L-Y have a good solid offensive line capable or protecting Palmer and opening up holes for Adrian Peterson & the RB’s with both speedster WRs w/ elite speed John Brown & JJ Nelson both fully 110% healthy and off the injury report for the first time all year after dealing with upper leg soft tissue ( Brown had a severely pulled quad/Nelson had badly pulled hamstring affecting their ability run n take the top off a defense, especially affecting John Brown’s abilities who is a borderline elite caliber receiver fully healthy) injuries… Against a very bad Tampa pass defense this weekend with both John Brown (4.31 40) & JJ Nelson (4.26 40) able to run 100% healthy those two could have a VERY BIG Game along with 6″3 Jaron Brown (4.40), Larry Fitzgerald with Andre Ellington and TE’s Jermaine Gresham/Troy Niklas working underneath.
    With QB Carson Palmer able to enjoy good/solid pass protection in front of him now that his line is healthy I think ARI will get the run game going with Adrian Peterson now that they can run block, get him going a bit forcing Tampa to respect the run which will greatly help the line in pass pro as well & also will open up the passing game, esp play action & thats where John Brown, JJ Nelson and Jaron Brown all with elite speed become so dangerous and come into play. Palmer ranks 2nd in passing-yards despite having not been protected, now that he will have solid/avg protection with a solid run game I’d bet money Arizona passing game really gets going with Palmer, John Brown, JJ Nelson, Larry Fitzgerald all having very big games w/ AP carrying the ball 17-20 times for 85-100yds. With the game in PHX and ARI coming in very pissed off, especially their defense which is still a top notch Defense that has played exceptional in every game but 1 which was the game in PHI which they were a top 8 ranked D overall going into that game, w/ the Defense primed for a huge game along with DE Robert Nkimdiche finally 100% healthy I’d be willing to bet money both AZ’s Defense & Offense has a big game playing very well at home, I think AZ wins this game something like 27-17.

    How many Super-Bowl Trophies has old Phil won with the Chargers?? O, thats right, ZERO!!!! I am pretty sure Eli Manning with his 2 Super Bowl Trophies/Wins (along with a Super-Bowl MVP Honor and several post season trips ) is secure in his decision knowing he made the right to choice in going to the biggest media market in the country to one of the most successful franchises in the NFL over going to San Diego which was one of the smallest media markets in the NFL and one of the worst run least successful franchises in the NFL, All you have to is look at Rivers career and extremely limited post season trips to realize how piss poor and badly managed that franchise is!!! The Chargers haven’t been able to build a successful roster around Rivers during the vast majority of his time w/ the Chargers & they haven’t been able to win games or several divisional titles/post season trips despite having a borderline ( Rivers is right below that elite top 3-5 QB Tier) elite QB, that tells u a ton about the Chargers franchise and its ownership & how badly managed that franchise truly is.

    I am not fully sold on the Packers rookie 2nd round pick 6″3 CB Kevin King anyway. King has shown potential and I love that he is hard hitting physical corner not afraid to wax somebodies back & tackle, but he has some SERIOUS issues in pass coverage this year ranking 87th of 113CBs with a 45.3 overall grade. Most rookie corners rank low via PFF in year 1 so he could get better, but its some of his technique issues and how he has gotten beat that make me question him. He could be a bust or he could become a good cornerback, I definitely don’t see him becoming an elite top corner but I could see him being a good corner.
    Knowing that Green-Bay needed Defensive-Back help I thought GB should of drafted the other top DB out of U-DUB in 5ft”10/200pd Safety/Slot Cornerback Budda Baker. Budda Baker is a beast, he can play FS/SCB or even SS, he is like a heat seeking missile when he comes down hill on people, he hits extremely hard, excels versus the run but is even better in pass coverage. He can play Free-Safety and then in Nickel play slot cornerback , possessing elite speed/quickness/explosivness he is like a mix of Earl Thomas & Tyrann Mathieu. Budda Baker has the ability to excel as a single high Free Safety in the middle of the field like Thomas but he can also com down in the box close to the line of scrimmage and excel, he plays slot CB at an extremely high level w/ rare coverage skills, Budda Baker is a beast and was an absolute steal at the top of round 2, he is the DB the Pack should of drafted. Mark my words, Budda Baker will be a Pro-Bowl/All-Pro S/CB Several Times over very soon, the only reason he hasnt played a lot is because he has 3 of the best Safety’s in the NFL in front of him in All-Pro S/CB Tyrann Mathieu, SS Tyvon Branch playing at an Elite All-Pro Level ranked as the 5th best Safety in the NFL w/ an 89.4 overall grade & FS Antoine Bethea is playing at a Pro-Bowl extremely high level as well as one of the best pass covering FS’s in the NFL this season w/ an overall grade of 84.9 …. The Cardinals are loaded at safety thats the only reason he doesn’t get more snaps as the kid is a beast, though now that we are getting closer to mid season with Baker now really understanding the defense n playing much faster I think his snaps will go way up. The Packers should of taken Budda Baker, he is going to be not only an All-Pro S/CB becoming one of the top safeties in the NFL but he is going to be FAR better than King will be over the long haul.
