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 first injury report roundup of the 2014 season.
Chargers at Bills
Running back Ryan Mathews (knee) and linebacker Melvin Ingram (hamstring) have been ruled out for the Chargers, who also may not have linebacker Jerry Attaochu (hamstring) after he missed practice all week. Attaochu is questionable, as are wide receiver Keenan Allen (groin) and safety Jahleel Addae (hamstring). The Bills will be shorthanded at linebacker as well. Randell Johnson (knee) has been ruled out and Keith Rivers (groin) is unlikely to play.
Titans at Bengals
The Titans don’t have many injury issues on the 53-man roster. Cornerback Jason McCourty (groin) is questionable after a week of limited practices, but the other three players on the report are probable. The Bengals listed linebacker Vontaze Burfict as doubtful, but two concussions in two weeks may make that a hopeful designation. Guard Kevin Zeitler (calf) is also doubtful, but things are looking good for wide receiver A.J. Green (toe) after a full practice on Friday.
Ravens at Browns
Ravens defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan (knee) is doubtful and running back Bernard Pierce is questionable after coming down with a thigh injury during the week. Guard Paul McQuistan (ankle) is questionable and the only player on the Browns injury report.
Packers at Lions

Raiders at Patriots
Raiders linebacker Sio Moore (ankle) won’t play and running back Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is questionable after having surgery less than two weeks ago. Defensive end Antonio Smith (back) was added to the injury report on Friday and he’s listed as questionable as well. Running back Shane Vereen (shoulder) and linebacker Jamie Collins (thigh) are the biggest names among six questionable Patriots while tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee) and wide receiver Julian Edelman (back) are probable.
Vikings at Saints
Linebacker Chad Greenway is questionable to play with a broken hand and the Vikings are also waiting to see if wide receiver Rodney Smith (hamstring) and linebacker Brandon Watts (knee) will play. The Saints have ruled out running back Mark Ingram (hand), linebacker David Hawthorne (ankle), fullback Erik Lorig (ankle) and safety Marcus Ball (hamstring).
Texans at Giants
Texans running back Arian Foster (hamstring) was limited in practice on Friday and is questionable for Sunday. The same is true for safety D.J. Swearinger (elbow). The Giants ruled out linebackers Jon Beason (foot) and Devon Kennard (hamstring) while listing punter Steve Weatherford (ankle) as questionable.
Redskins at Eagles
Wide receiver DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is questionable for his first return to Philadelphia since being released by the Eagles. If he doesn’t play, he’ll join tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring), linebacker Akeem Jordan (knee) and cornerback Tracy Porter (hamstring) on the sideline. Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks (calf) won’t play and safety Earl Wolff (knee) is questionable after missing Friday’s practice.
Cowboys at Rams
Defensive end Anthony Spencer (knee) returned to practice for the Cowboys this week, but he’s out for Sunday. So is linebacker Justin Durant (groin) and Rolando McClain (groin) may join him after getting a doubtful tag. Quarterback Shaun Hill (thigh) is questionable for the Rams, who will make their quarterback call over the weekend. Wide receiver Tavon Austin (knee) is questionable.
49ers at Cardinals
Tight end Vernon Davis (ankle, knee), cornerback Tramaine Brock (toe) and tackle Anthony Davis (hamstring) are all questionable for the 49ers.

Chiefs at Dolphins
Safety Eric Berry (ankle) and running back De’Anthony Thomas (hamstring) are out for the Chiefs and running back Jamaal Charles (ankle) is questionable after practicing the last two days. The Dolphins won’t have guard Shelley Smith (knee) or linebacker Koa Misi (ankle). Tight end Charles Clay (knee) is listed as questionable.
Broncos at Seahawks
Linebacker Danny Trevathan (knee) is questionable to make his first appearance of the 2014 season, which would be a quicker than expected return from injury for the 2013 starter. Cornerback Tharold Simon (knee) remains out for Seattle while linebacker Bruce Irvin (rib) missed practice the last two days and is listed as questionable.
Steelers at Panthers
Running back Dri Archer (knee) is doubtful for Pittsburgh and guard Ramon Foster (ankle) is questionable. Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams (quad), wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery (quad) and wide receiver Jason Avant (quad) are all questionable for the Panthers.
