Week 16 injury report roundup


All 32 teams play on either Saturday or Sunday, which means that all 32 teams submitted their final injury reports of the week on Friday.

As we do every week, we’ve gone through all of them to pull out the information you need to know before kickoff. So, without any further ado, here’s your Week 16 injury report roundup.

Falcons at Lions

Safety William Moore (hamstring) and wide receiver Roddy White (knee) are both questionable for the Falcons. The Lions aren’t likely to have tight end Brandon Pettigrew, who is doubtful due to an ankle injury. Safety Louis Delmas is absolutely not injury prone, but he is questionable with the knee injury that’s bothered him all season.

Raiders at Panthers

Knee and hamstring issues will keep Raiders defensive tackle Richard Seymour out for another week. Safety Tyvon Branch (neck, ankle) and wide receiver Juron Criner (hip) are questionable. Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart (ankle) is also questionable while center Geoff Hangartner is doubtful with a foot injury.

Saints at Cowboys

Fullback Jed Collins (knee, toe) won’t go for the Saints. Running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) and cornerback Patrick Robinson (groin) are questionable. Running back Pierre Thomas, who popped up on the injury report Thursday with a knee injury, is probable. The Cowboys remain without defensive tackle Jay Ratliff (groin) and they have a pair of questionable players in linebacker Ernie Sims (concussion) and wide receiver Kevin Ogletree (illness).

Titans at Packers

Center Kevin Matthews (ankle) won’t play for the Titans. Wide receivers Kendall Wright (rib) and Damian Williams (hamstring) are questionable. The Packers ruled out tight end Tom Crabtree (hamstring), wide receiver Jordy Nelson (hamstring), running back James Starks (knee), defensive end C.J. Wilson (knee) and safety Charles Woodson (collarbone). Running back Alex Green is questionable because of a concussion.

Vikings at Texans

The Vikings head to Houston in good health with defensive end Brian Robison (shoulder) listed as the only player less than probable. A healthy Texans team will be waiting for them. Cornerback Alan Ball (foot) is out, but linebacker Brooks Reed (groin) is probable to make his return and every other player on the injury report joins him with that likely to play designation.

Patriots at Jaguars

As always, the Patriots’ injury report is a statement about the very nature of injury reports as they list 19 players as questionable and no player with another designation. Among them are tight end Rob Gronkowski (forearm), defensive end Chandler Jones (ankle) and wide receiver Wes Welker (ankle). Running backs Rashad Jennings (concussion) and Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) are out once more for Jacksonville, while cornerbacks Aaron Ross (calf) and Dwight Lowery (foot) are questionable.

Colts at Chiefs

The Colts ruled out running back Delone Carter (ankle), linebacker Kavell Conner (hamstring), center Samson Satele (ankle) and safety Tom Zbikowski (knee). Center A.Q. Shipley, who would replace Satele, is questionable with a knee injury and tackle Winston Justice has the same designation thanks to a biceps injury. Chiefs tight end Tony Moeaki (head) is doubtful and tackle Branden Albert (back) is questionable.

Bills at Dolphins

The Bills are hopeful they’ll get center Eric Wood (knee) back in the lineup this week. He’s listed as questionable, as is Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline (back). Defensive tackle Randy Starks is also questionable after missing practice all week for reasons not related to an injury and unknown to us. Wide receiver Davone Bess (back) and linebacker Koa Misi (ankle) are out for the second straight week.

Chargers at Jets

Defensive tackle Aubrayo Franklin (knee) is doubtful for the Chargers while linebacker DeMorrio Williams (ankle) is questionable. Jets tight end Dustin Keller (ankle) is likely to miss another game after being listed as doubtful. Wide receiver Braylon Edwards (hamstring), wide receiver Mardy Gilyard (illness), defensive tackle Sione Pouha (back), linebacker Ricky Sapp (ankle), wide receiver Chaz Schilens (calf, knee) and linebacker Bryan Thomas (chest) are all questionable, while quarterback Mark Sanchez’s wounded pride is nowhere to be found on the injury report.

Redskins at Eagles

Quarterback Robert Griffin III (knee) is expected to start for the Redskins, who listed tackle Tyler Polumbus (head) and defensive end Stephen Bowen (biceps) as questionable. Running back Stanley Havili (hamstring) is out and running back Chris Polk (toe) is doubtful. The Eagles do expect to have LeSean McCoy back in the starting lineup in his return from a concussion.

Bengals at Steelers

The Bengals listed cornerbacks Adam Jones (hamstring) and Dre Kirkpatrick (head) as questionable. Cornerback Ike Taylor (ankle) will miss another game for the Steelers and it looks like tackle Mike Adams, doubtful with an ankle injury, is going to be out as well.

Rams at Buccaneers

Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan (thigh) is questionable, as is Buccaneers cornerback LeQuan Lewis (knee). Tampa defensive end Aaron Morgan (shoulder) is doubtful, which wraps up a brief injury report ahead of this matchup.

Browns at Broncos

The Browns ruled out wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi (knee), tight end Jordan Cameron (head) and safety Tashaun Gipson (foot). Broncos guard Chris Kuper (head, ankle) is doubtful for the game.

Bears at Cardinals

Bears defensive tackle Henry Melton (clavicle) is doubtful after missing last week’s game. Wide receiver Earl Bennett (concussion) and cornerback Tim Jennings (shoulder) are both questionable. Wide receiver Early Doucet (concussion) and guard Mike Gibson (calf) are out for Arizona. Left tackle Nate Potter is questionable with an ankle injury.

Giants at Ravens

Center David Baas (hip, shoulder), tight end Travis Beckum (knee), running back Ahmad Bradshaw (knee, foot), safety Kenny Phillips (knee), safety Tyler Sash (hamstring), guard Chris Snee (hip) and defensive end Justin Tuck (shoulder) are all questionable for the Giants. Reports are more optimistic on Bradshaw than they are on Tuck, who missed practice all week. Cornerback Prince Amukamara (hamstring) is probable after missing last week’s game. Safety Bernard Pollard (chest) is likely to miss his second straight game while guard Marshal Yanda (ankle) and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (ankle) are better bets to return to action after getting questionable tags. Wide receiver Torrey Smith and running back Bernard Pierce are also questionable pending the results of their baseline concussion tests.

49ers at Seahawks

49ers coach Jim Harbaugh says defensive tackle Justin Smith is questionable with an elbow injury, but the injury report says he’s doubtful. Linebacker Clark Haggans (shoulder) is also doubtful. Wide receiver Mario Manningham (shoulder) is questionable. Wide receiver Sidney Rice (knee), cornerback Walter Thurmond (hamstring) and cornerback Marcus Trufant (hamstring) will all be game-time decisions for Seattle.
