Week Seven 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.

Ravens at Steelers

The Ravens ruled out linebacker Josh Bynes (finger) while center Ryan Jensen (foot) and wide receiver Brandon Stokely (thigh) are both doubtful to play. Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (elbow), linebacker Courtney Upshaw (foot) and cornerback Lardarius Webb (thigh) are all questionable. Rookie wide receiver Markus Wheaton (finger) and tight end Richard Gordon (toe) are out for the Steelers while linebacker Jarvis Jones is questionable after being diagnosed with a concussion.

Buccaneers at Falcons

Buccaneers running back Jeff Demps (groin) and guard Carl Nicks (foot surgery related to MRSA infection) are out. Cornerback Michael Adams (knee), defensive end Da’Quan Bowers (toe) and wide receiver Mike Williams (hamstring) are all questionable. Tackle Sam Baker (knee), tight end Chase Coffman (knee), running back Steven Jackson (hamstring) and wide receiver Roddy White (hamstring, ankle) are all out for Atlanta. It will be the first time that White’s missed a game in his career.

Rams at Panthers

The Rams ruled out running back Benny Cunningham (ankle) and listed cornerback Cortland Finnegan (thigh) as doubtful. The Panthers remain without cornerback D.J. Moore (knee) and defensive tackle Dwan Edwards’ return practice from a hamstring injury couldn’t lift him above a doubtful designation.

Bengals at Lions

Center Kyle Cook (shoulder), cornerback Terence Newman (abdomen) and defensive tackle Devon Still (back) are probable and comprise the entire Bengals injury report. Tight end Tony Scheffler (concussion) remains out for the Lions and tackle Jason Fox (knee) is doubtful. Running backs Joique Bell (rib) and Theo Riddick (concussion) are both questionable.

Chargers at Jaguars

The Chargers will travel to Florida having already ruled out guard Chad Rinehart (toe). Linebacker Donald Butler (groin) is doubtful and wide receiver Eddie Royal (toe) is questionable. Jaguars wide receivers Justin Blackmon (hamstring) and wide receiver Cecil Shorts (SC joint) are questionable, but both say they’ll be in the lineup. Wide receiver Stephen Burton (concussion), quarterback Blaine Gabbert (hamstring), defensive end Jeremy Mincey (concussion) and wide receiver Ace Sanders (concussion) will all miss the game.

Bills at Dolphins

The only player out for Buffalo is quarterback E.J. Manuel (knee). His replacement Thad Lewis (foot) is probable, as are wide receiver Stevie Johnson (back) and running back C.J. Spiller (knee). The Dolphins listed linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (shoulder) as doubtful and wide receiver Brandon Gibson (hip) and cornerback Dimitri Patterson (groin) as questionable.

Patriots at Jets

Tight end Rob Gronkowski (forearm, back) is questionable, but he’s been cleared to make his regular season debut. Wide receiver Danny Amendola (concussion), defensive tackle Tommy Kelly (knee) and running back Leon Washington (ankle) are out while cornerback Aqib Talib (hip) is doubtful after missing most of the week of practice. Wide receiver Santonio Holmes (hamstring) is out as is wide receiver Greg Salas (knee), who was signed off the Eagles practice squad this week. Cornerback Dee Milliner (hamstring) is probable to return after missing the last three games.

Cowboys at Eagles

There’s not much chance that the Cowboys will have running back DeMarco Murray (knee) or defensive end DeMarcus Ware (thigh) after being listed as doubtful. Running back Lance Dunbar (hamstring) and linebacker DeVonte Holloman (neck) are out while wide receiver Miles Austin (hamstring) is probable after missing practice the last two days. The Eagles listed quarterback Michael Vick (hamstring) as questionable, although Vick has already ruled himself out. Safety Patrick Chung (shoulder) is doubtful.

Bears at Redskins

Tight end Martellus Bennett (knee) and cornerback Charles Tillman (knee) are questionable for the Bears’ trip to Washington. The Redskins are relatively healthy as well with cornerback David Amerson (concussion) the only player listed at anything other than probable. Amerson is questionable.

49ers at Titans

The 49ers left the status of wide receiver Jon Baldwin (illness), defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey (hamstring), defensive tackle Ray McDonald (biceps), cornerback Carlos Rogers (knee) and defensive tackle Justin Smith (shoulder) up in the air by listing them as questionable. Wide receiver Quinton Patton (foot) will miss another game. The Titans are down a pair of linebackers — Moise Fokou (knee) and Zaviar Gooden (hamstring) — and they will make their decision about a quarterback this weekend after listing Jake Locker (hip, knee) as questionable. Running back Shonn Greene (knee) is also questionable after missing the last five games.

Browns at Packers

Browns running back Willis McGahee (knee) is probable, as is linebacker Jabaal Sheard (knee). Defensive end Billy Winn remains out with a quadriceps injury. Almost a fifth of the Packers roster is listed on the injury report. Linebacker Brad Jones (hamstring), linebacker Clay Matthews (thumb), linebacker Nick Perry (foot), running back James Starks (knee) and tight end Ryan Taylor (knee) are all out while cornerback Jarrett Bush (hamstring), cornerback Casey Hayward (hamstring), wide receiver James Jones (knee) and defensive end Mike Neal (shoulder) are questionable.

Texans at Chiefs

Case Keenum will start at quarterback for the Texans with Matt Schaub (ankle, foot) out of the lineup. Linebacker Tim Dobbins (hamstring) is also out and the Texans listed 15 players as probable. The Chiefs have a slew of probables as well, including cornerback Brandon Flowers (knee) and tackle Branden Albert (knee, elbow), and safety Kendrick Lewis (ankle) is questionable.

Broncos at Colts

Tackle Orlando Franklin (ankle) is doubtful to play for the Broncos. Linebacker Wesley Woodyard (neck) is questionable after missing last week while defensive end Robert Ayers (shoulder) is probable to return after missing it as well. Colts linebacker Bjoern Werner is still out with a foot injury, but safety LaRon Landry (ankle) is expected to make his return. Linebacker Jerrell Freeman (concussion) is also probable, but cornerback Darius Butler (groin) and linebacker Kelvin Sheppard (hamstring) are questionable.
