18 things to know about the Week Two injury report


We post about the biggest injury news in the rumor mill.  Everything else we collect in North America’s longest running injury report recap below.

1. Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington looks ready for a breakout season, but he may not suit up this week. He’s questionable with a calf injury after missing practice all week.

2. Redskins safety LaRon Landry (hamstring) and linebacker Brian Orakpo (ankle) were both limited in practice all week. They are questionable. Landry’s replacement Reed Doughty struggled against the Giants.

3. Baltimore will be short three key players. Starting rookie cornerback Jimmy Smith and nickel corner Chris Carr are out. Guard Ben Grubbs is doubtful.

4. Safety Chris Hope is doubtful for the Titans. That ends a long consecutive starts streak. Defensive end William Hayes (shoulder) and wide receiver Damian Williams (hamstring).

5. Marion Barber is doubtful for the Bears. Safety Chris Harris and Lance Louis are doubtful.

6. The Saints will be without wideout Marques Colston. Safety Roman Harper, cornerback Tracy Porter, and wideout Lance Moore are all questionable.

7. Tackle Tony Pashos is out for the Browns.  Cleveland’s offensive line should be the strength of the team, but they struggled in the opener.

8. The Colts will be without their defensive leader.  Linebacker Gary Brackett is out. So is backup linebacker Ernie Sims.

9. Cowboys wideout Dez Bryant (thigh) is officially questionable, but didn’t practice all week.

10. 49ers wideout Michael Crabtree (feet) and safety Dashon Goldson (knee) are both questionable.  Crabtree just can’t seem to shake this injury.

11. The Packers will likely be without cornerback Tramon Williams.  He’s questionable after missing practice all week following his shoulder injury suffered against the Saints.

12. The Panthers will be without starting right tackle Jeff Otah after he suffered a concussion last week.

13. Even though Texas receiver Kevin Walter didn’t practice all week, the team lists him as questionable.  Jacoby Jones is expected to start for Walter.

14. Jaguars receiver Jason Hill likely won’t be able to back up his trash talk. He’s doubtful; so is tight end Marcedes Lewis.  The team is still without Aaron Kampman.

15. Jets receiver Santonio Holmes (knee, quadriceps) is officially questionable after being limited in practice Thursday and Friday.

16.  Lions receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) and safety Louis Delmas (hip) are both questionable, but they have a good chance to play after returning to practice Friday.

17. Patriots defensive end Mike Wright is out with a concussion.  Tackle Sebastian Vollmer should return after missing last week.

18.  Vince Young is officially questionable after finally returning to practice Friday in a limited fashion.  We’d still guess he’s inactive Sunday.

Thanks for making it this far.  You win.
