Week 11 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. So, without further delay, the injury report roundup for Week 11 of the 2014 season.

Falcons at Panthers

Wide receiver Harry Douglas (foot), wide receiver Devin Hester (ankle) and cornerback Josh Wilson (ankle) are all questionable for the Falcons, who ruled out tackle Jonathan Scott (hamstring). The Panthers ruled out defensive tackle Star Lotulelei (ankle) and are making plans that don’t include left guard Amini Silatolu (knee, doubtful). Cornerback Bene’ Benwikere (ankle), defensive end Charles Johnson (not injury related) and tight end Brandon Williams (foot) are all questionable and Johnson is expected to play.

Vikings at Bears

Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph (sports hernia surgery, probable) is expected back in the lineup after more than a month on the shelf. Defensive end Scott Crichton (hip) and tackle Mike Harris (ankle) are both questionable. Tackle Eben Britton (illness), defensive end Trevor Scott (knee) and linebacker Darryl Sharpton (hamstring) are all out for the Bears and tackle Jordan Mills (ribs, doubtful) is also headed in that direction. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall (ankle) and tight end Martellus Bennett (ribs) are both probable to play.

Texans at Browns

The Texans listed running back Arian Foster (groin) as questionable, although reports out of Houston indicate he’ll miss the game. Cornerback Kareem Jackson (knee) is definitely out, but it looks like linebackers Jadeveon Clowney (knee, probable) and Brian Cushing (knee, probable) will play. Browns tight end Jordan Cameron (concussion) is out again and safety Johnson Bademosi (concussion) will join him on the sideline. Safety Tashaun Gipson (concussion) may join them after being listed as questionable.

Seahawks at Chiefs

The Seahawks hope to get linebacker Bobby Wagner (toe) back next week and it looks like they’ll have to wait for cornerback Marcus Burley (hamstring), guard James Carpenter (ankle) and linebacker Brock Coyle (glute) after listing them as doubtful. Cornerback Jeremy Lane (groin), running back Marshawn Lynch (calf) and tight end Luke Willson (ankle), although Lynch’s return to practice on Friday bodes well for his availability. Chiefs wide receiver Donnie Avery (groin), cornerback Jamell Fleming (hamstring) and wide receiver A.J. Jenkins (shoulder) are all out for Sunday’s game. Cornerbacks Phillip Gaines (ankle, quadricep) and Christopher Owens (knee) and tight end Anthony Fasano (knee) are all questionable.

Bengals at Saints

Running back Giovani Bernard (hip) and linebacker Vontaze Burfict (knee) are out again for the Bengals and it looks like right tackle Andre Smith (ankle, doubtful) will join them on the sideline. Linebacker Rey Maualuga (hamstring) and cornerback Terence Newman (knee) are questionable and cornerback Leon Hall (concussion) is probable to return. Cornerback Keenan Lewis (knee) is questionable for New Orleans after a limited practice on Friday. Linebacker Curtis Lofton (ankle) and wide receiver Robert Meachem (ankle) are also questionable, while running backs Khiry Robinson (arm), Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) and Edwin Baker (concussion) have all been ruled out.

49ers at Giants

The 49ers have ruled out defensive back Jimmie Ward (foot) and defensive tackle Ian Williams (fibula) and cornerback Tramaine Brock (hamstring) is questionable despite reports that he’ll miss at least this week. Wide receiver Bruce Ellington (ankle) and linebacker Dan Skuta (ankle) are both questionable.

The Rams ruled out cornerback Marcus Roberson (ankle) and listed linebacker Daren Bates (groin), cornerback Lamarcus Joyner (groin) and wide receiver Damian Williams (hamstring) as questionable.

Buccaneers at Redskins

Tampa will play without running back Doug Martin (ankle) for another week and they’ll play the waiting game with defensive end Michael Johnson (hand), tight end Luke Stocker (hip) and cornerback Alterraun Verner (hamstring) all listed as questionable. The Redskins return from their bye week in good shape with tight end Logan Paulsen (foot, hamstring, questionable) the only player that isn’t 100 percent expected to play.

Raiders at Chargers

Oakland will have to go without tight end David Ausberry (foot), safety Jonathan Dowling (back), guard Gabe Jackson (knee) and cornerback Carlos Rogers (knee) this week. Defensive end Justin Tuck (neck) is questionable. The Chargers look a bit healthier with running back Ryan Mathews (knee) and linebackers Manti Te’o (foot) and Jeremiah Attaochu (hamstring) all probable. Cornerback Jason Verrett (shoulder) remains out, though, and safety Jahleel Addae (concussion) is questionable after returning to practice on Thursday.

Lions at Cardinals

The Lions will wait to make a call on running back Reggie Bush’s (ankle) status, but they sent some signals about sitting him down throughout the week. Defensive tackle Nick Fairley (knee) and guard Larry Warford (knee) are both out, but it looks like tight end Eric Ebron (hamstring, probable) will return. Defensive tackle Ed Stinson (toe) is out for the Cardinals and linebacker Desmond Bishop (hamstring) is questionable.

Eagles at Packers

Quarterback Nick Foles (collarbone, out) is the only player on the Eagles’ active roster listed as anything but probable for Sunday’s game. Packers guards T.J. Lang (ankle) and Josh Sitton (toe) are both probable as well, but tight end Brandon Bostick (hip) won’t play.

Patriots at Colts

The Patriots listed defensive end Dominique Easley (knee), safety Nate Ebner (finger), tackle Cameron Fleming (finger) and guard Ryan Wendell (knee) as questionable and defensive end Chandler Jones (hip) is the only player that definitely won’t play.
