We cover all of the biggest injury stories throughout the day on Friday, but feel free to use this as a one-stop shop to catch up on those posts and any other names worth mentioning that we’ll throw in here every Friday.

Panthers at Falcons

Linebacker Jon Beason is questionable for the Panthers and the team has already said that they won’t be moving Luke Kuechly to the middle in the event Beason can’t play on Sunday. Linebacker Thomas Davis is also questionable and guard Mike Pollak is out. For the Falcons, wide receiver Julio Jones is probable while cornerback Christopher Owens is the most notable of the four Falcons listed as out this week.

Bengals at Jaguars

The Bengals have issues at cornerback. Dre Kirkpatrick is still out and Jason Allen and Nate Clements are both doubtful. Leon Hall missed practice all week with a hamstring injury, but is listed as probable. Linebacker Daryl Smith is out for the Jags and they should get running back Rashad Jennings is likely to make his return to the lineup after being listed as probable.

Dolphins at Cardinals

Running back Reggie Bush and cornerback Richard Marshall are listed as questionable, but the expectation is that each of them will play this week. The news isn’t quite so good for Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett. He’s doubtful because of a hamstring injury and tight end Todd Heap and running back LaRod Stephens-Howling both earned the same designation.

Vikings at Lions

Both quarterbacks are probable after dealing with injuries this week. Linebacker Erin Henderson is out again for the Vikings thanks to a concussion, but defensive end Jared Allen is probable. Lions defensive tackle Corey Williams will miss the game after having knee surgery this week, running back Mikel Leshoure is questionable and safety Louis Delmas is doubtful as he makes an extended recovery from his own knee surgery.

Patriots at Bills

The Patriots will be without wide receiver Julian Edelman and tight end Aaron Hernandez. Tight end Rob Gronkowski, guard Logan Mankins and tackle Sebastian Vollmer are all questionable. The Bills hope to have running backs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller, although both are listed as questionable following limited practice participation this week.

Saints at Packers

Defensive end Turk McBride, linebacker David Hawthorne and linebacker Jonathan Casillas are all out for the Saints. Wide receiver Greg Jennings is probable for the Packers, as is running back James Starks.

Raiders at Broncos

Oakland has ruled out tackle Khalif Barnes and cornerback Shawntae Spencer for a second straight game. Running back Darren McFadden is probable after being slowed by a shoulder injury this week and wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, while eager to get back on the field, is doubtful thanks to the blow to the head and neck he took in last week’s win against the Steelers. The Broncos are fairly healthy with the exception of safety Quinton Carter, who is out, and guard Chris Kuper, listed as doubtful.

Chargers at Chiefs

Chargers cornerback Shareece Wright is out again this week while tackle Jared Gaither has climbed the ladder to questionable while dealing with his ever-present back injury. Kicker Nate Kaeding is also listed as questionable, but he’s not going to Kansas City and Nick Novak will kick. The Chiefs offense could be in a tough way. Tight end Kevin Boss is out, running back Peyton Hillis is doubtful and three wideouts — Dwayne Bowe, Steve Breaston and Dexter McCluster — are all questionable.

49ers at Jets

The 49ers continue to list running back Brandon Jacobs and wide receiver Ted Ginn as questionable, just as they have before they’ve missed the team’s other games this season. Cornerback Darrelle Revis is out (and will be until his triumphant return for the Super Bowl) and wide receiver Stephen Hill is listed as doubtful, although you can go ahead and downgrade him based on Rex Ryan’s assessment of his chances of playing. Tight end Dustin Keller and linebacker Bryan Thomas, who have each missed the last two games, are questionable.

Seahawks at Rams

Seattle listed guard John Moffitt as doubtful and linebacker LeRoy Hill is questionable. The Rams will have another game-time decision with running back Steven Jackson and rookie defensive tackle Michael Brockers could make his regular season debut after missing the first three games with an ankle injury.

Titans at Texans

Tennessee wide receiver Kenny Britt and tight end Jared Cook are both questionable, although Cook was the only one to practice at all this week. The Texans listed wide receiver Lestar Jean as out and they have a slew of players, including quarterback Matt Schaub and running back Arian Foster, as probable.

Redskins at Buccaneers

Cornerback Cedric Griffin is out for the Redskins while wide receiver Pierre Garçon and tackle Trent Williams have both been listed as questionable. The Buccaneers will be without cornerback Anthony Gaitor, but are otherwise injury free.

Giants at Eagles

The Giants won’t have tackle David Diehl again this week and cornerback Jayron Hosley and linebacker Keith Rivers have also been ruled out. Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is doubtful and likely to miss a second straight game. Demetress Bell will start at left tackle for the Eagles in place of King Dunlap, but wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and defensive end Trent Cole are both probable for the game.

  1. Belichick is pulling another one of his might play, might not play games with the Bills. I swear, everytime Buffalo and New England play one or two of their players mysteriously become injured, even though they made it all the way through their last game un-injured. I think he does it to confuse the Bills coaching staff and make them plan for other players that probably won’t be playing. I understand that its just part of the game, but why can’t Belichick just play straight up, without tricks or cheating? If any game that I want Buffalo to walk away with a W this year, its this game. I fu-king hate the Patriots their as-ho-e of a coach and stuck up owner.

  2. It’s not called cheating, EJ. It’s called deceiving.

    Nothing dirty about it, or Bill. And Kraft isn’t stuck up.

    This is all coming from a longtime Colts and Giants fan (also a Broncos fan but that’s just cause of Peyton).

    In other news, who else can’t wait for Eagles vs Giants? Demetress Bell is gonna get burned every 3rd play.

  3. ^Being a fan of three teams is just cowardly IMO. Pick one and stick with them. Being a fan of just players is even worse.

    Also, isn’t Leon Hall listed as Questionable? That’s what it says on NFL.com, ESPN.com, and every single website I’ve looked at. Yet here you list him as Probable?

  4. If the Eagles have another game like the last, its over for Reid. Bad draft choices, bad game plans, insufficent depth. Where is Bill Cowher when you need him.
