Week Five injury report roundup


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.

Saints at Bears

Defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley (calf), safety Roman Harper (knee), running back Mark Ingram (toe), wide receiver Lance Moore (hand) and defensive tackle Tyrunn Walker (knee) are all out for New Orleans. Cornerback Keenan Lewis (hip) is questionable, giving him a chance at being in the lineup to slow down probable Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall (foot). Cornerback Charles Tillman (groin, knee) is listed as questionable once again this week.

Patriots at Bengals

The Patriots ruled running back Stevan Ridley (knee) out and special teams ace Matt Slater (wrist) is doubtful. Tight end Rob Gronkowski (back, forearm) and wide receiver Danny Amendola (groin) are questionable again this week. So are eight other Patriots, including wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins (shoulder) and linebacker Jerod Mayo (ankle). Cornerbacks Leon Hall (hamstring) and Brandon Ghee (thigh) are doubtful for the Bengals and cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring) is questionable, making it helpful that safety Reggie Nelson (hamstring) is likely to play. Defensive end Michael Johnson is questionable and awaits clearance after a concussion.

Lions at Packers

Wide receiver Calvin Johnson (knee) is questionable, but he practiced for the Lions on Friday after missing Wednesday and Thursday. Cornerback Chris Houston (hamstring) and safety Glover Quin (ankle) are also questionable. The Packers ruled out cornerback Casey Hayward (hamstring) and running back James Starks (knee) early in the week. Guard Greg Van Roten (foot) is also out, but tight end Jermichael Finley (concussion) and linebacker Clay Matthews (hamstring) are on track to be in the lineup.

Seahawks at Colts

The Seahawks won’t have tackle Breno Giacomini (knee) or running back Spencer Ware (ankle) and cornerback Jeremy Lane (hamstring) is doubtful. Center Max Unger (arm) is questionable after missing last week’s game and defensive end Michael Bennett (back) is probable after suffering an injury that appeared more serious last weekend. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw (neck), running back Stanley Havili (ankle), defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois (groin), safety LaRon Landry (ankle) and linebacker Bjoern Werner (foot) have been ruled out by the Colts.

Ravens at Dolphins

Wide receiver Jacoby Jones (knee) is questionable for the Ravens as he tries to make his return from the injury he suffered in Week One. Cornerback Lardarius Webb (thigh) and wide receiver Marlon Brown (thigh) are also questionable after getting dinged last weekend. Defensive end Terrence Cody (knee) and center Ryan Jensen (foot) are both doubtful. The Dolphins ruled CB Dimitri Patterson (groin) out while defensive end Cameron Wake (knee) is questionable after missing last week’s game. Wide receiver Brandon Gibson (ankle) is also questionable and defensive tackle Paul Soliai (knee) and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (knee) are probable.

Eagles at Giants

The Eagles have just three players on their injury report and safety Patrick Chung (shoulder), who is questionable, is the only one listed as questionable or higher. The Giants don’t have such good luck on the injury front. Center David Baas (neck), cornerback Jayron Hosley (hamstring), defensive tackle Linval Joseph (ankle, knee), tight end Adrien Robinson (foot) and cornerback Aaron Ross (back) are all out while cornerback Corey Webster (groin) is doubtful. Defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins (knee, Achilles) and wide receiver Louis Murphy (ankle) are questionable.

Jaguars at Rams

The Jaguars have been shorthanded at full strength this season but they’ll be without wide receiver Mike Brown (back), wide receiver Stephen Burton (concussion), cornerback Dwayne Gratz (ankle), tight end Marcedes Lewis (calf), safety Dwight Lowery (concussion) and defensive end Jeremy Mincey (concussion). Wide receiver Cecil Shorts (groin) is questionable, but the expectation is that he’ll be in the lineup. The Rams will be without tackle Rodger Saffold (knee) again this week and both cornerback Cortland Finnegan (thigh) and defensive end Williams Hayes (knee) are doubtful.

Chiefs at Titans

First overall pick Eric Fisher will miss a game for the first time since the Chiefs drafted him because of a concussion. Tight end Travis Kelce (knee) is also out and tight end Anthony Fasano (knee, ankle) is questionable after missing last week’s game. Cornerback Brandon Flowers (knee), who also missed Week Four, is also questionable. You’ve likely heard that Titans quarterback Jake Locker (hip, knee) will miss the game, but running back Shonn Greene (knee) and defensive tackle Sammie Lee Hill (ankle) are also out for Tennessee. Linebacker Patrick Bailey (hamstring), defensive end Ropati Pitoitua (shoulder), tackle David Stewart (calf) and cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson (hamstring) are all questionable.

Panthers at Cardinals

The Panthers won’t have defensive tackle Dwan Edwards (hamstring), safety Quintin Mikell (ankle) and cornerback D.J. Moore (knee). Defensive end Greg Hardy (illness) is probable after missing practice a couple of days this week. The Cardinals have five questionable players — linebacker Jasper Brinkley (groin), guard Daryn Colledge (shin), defensive tackle Darnell Dockett (groin), safety Rashad Johnson (finger) and linebacker Kevin Minter (hamstring) — and defensive end Ronald Talley (wrist) is probable.

Broncos at Cowboys

Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey (foot) is questionable to make his first appearance of the 2013 season. Seven Broncos are probable, including linebacker Danny Trevathan (knee) and guard Chris Kuper (ankle). Wide receiver Miles Austin (hamstring) is on track to miss a second straight game for the Cowboys after being listed as doubtful. Linebacker Justin Durant (groin) is also doubtful while wide receiver Dwayne Harris (hip) and defensive end George Selvie (concussion) are questionable.

Texans at 49ers 

It’s another week of game-time decisions for Texans tackle Duane Brown (toe) and wide receiver Andre Johnson (shin). Johnson was the only one to play last weekend. Guard Brandon Brooks (toe) and linebacker Tim Dobbins (hamstring) are out and the Texans listed 17 players as probable. The 49ers could only manage 12 probable players to go with questionable cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha (knee). Linebacker Patrick Willis (groin) missed last week’s game and is the most prominent of those probables as a result.

Chargers at Raiders

The Chargers will be missing tackle King Dunlap (concussion) again this week and guard Chad Rinehart (toe) will likely join him on the inactive list after being listed as doubtful. Guard Jeromey Clary (collarbone) and guard Rich Ohrnberger (groin) are listed as questionable along with cornerback Johnny Patrick (chest) and cornerback Shareece Wright (hamstring). The Raiders are definitely playing without safety Tyvon Branch (ankle) and probably playing without running back Darren McFadden (hamstring) and center Stefan Wiesniewski (knee) after they were listed as doubtful. Defensive tackle Stacy McGee (shoulder), guard Lucas Nix (ankle), tackle Tony Pashos (groin), running back Marcel Reece (knee) and tackle Menelik Watson (knee) are all questionable, but quarterback Terrelle Pryor is slated to start after recovering from a concussion.
