Notable Week 6 Injury Updates

Sunday, Oct 12, 2008 at 12:00 pm ET

Arizona - Anquan Boldin is out, so Steve Breaston should see more looks during what is expected to be a shoot-out.

Atlanta - Roddy White is listed as questionable for Week 6, which doesn't help the Falcons. If he can't go, Michael Jenkins becomes a bit more popular.

Baltimore - Willis McGahee's knee injury didn't prevent him from fully participating in Friday's practice which is good news for owners. He gets to face a Colts defense that should expect 20+ carries.

Carolina - While you probably weren't planning on starting him anyway, WR D.J. Hackett is listed as doubtful this week. The offensive line could be missing several key players which makes this an interesting scenario to watch.

Chicago - It doesn't look like WR Brandon Lloyd will be taking the field today, but Tillman and Harris will be full participants on the Defense as the Bears try and contain Turner and company.

Cincinnati - What a bad situation for the Bengals. Carson Palmer missed practice on Friday and will not be the starter again. This doesn't bode well for Houshmandzadeh and Johnson owners. Shayne Graham didn't practice on Thursday or Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at the New York Jets. The Bengals signed Dave Rayner on Saturday.

Cleveland - It's a tough matchup against the Giants, but it becomes even tougher without TE Kellen Winslow who is still in the hospital for an undisclosed illness. Donte' Stallworth will finally suit up, but if Edwards can't make it as a viable fantasy option, why would Stallworth?

Dallas - Jason Witten fully practiced and will be a "GO" today. Terence Newman and Roy Williams will not be on the field, which is good news for Kurt Warner and Larry Fitzgerald owners.

Denver - Watch the Injury Report for game-time decisions regarding Bronco players. Eddie Royal was limited in Friday's practice but could still make the start. Brandon Stokley's value goes up if Royal can't play. Tony Scheffler is out along with Selvin Young. There's still plenty of yards and points to go around with Cutler as the field general, so Denver is still a great play.

Detroit - Kitna is out, which means Dan Orlovsky is in. There hasn't been much good news out of Detroit lately and that trend will continue this week. Williams and Johnson are listed as questionable, but both will likely start.

Green Bay - Even without Al Harris or Atari Bigby, the Packers D should be close to 100% against a strong Seattle running offense. Aaron Rodgers hasn't had a full day of practice all week, but is expected to start. He was hurt last week and look what he produced!

Houston - Chris Taylor is out. Slaton and Green will be the ball carriers this week.

Indianapolis - Anthony Gonzalez was a full participant in Friday's practice, but he remains an iffy option for fantasy owners.

Jacksonville - Matt Jones should get more looks this week as WR Mike Walker is definitely out.

Miami - The warm weather in Miami must mean healthy players. Nothing to analyze here!

Minnesota - Sidney Rice and Bernard Berrian are both listed as questionable and had limited practice on Friday. Keep an eye on them with particular attention on Berrian. If he's cleared to play, he's got a fantastic matchup this week.

New England - LaMont Jordan is listed as doubtful and Maroney is questionable. Regardless of whether either takes the field, they probably shouldn't be in your lineup.

New Orleans - If you've been holding onto Marques Colston, this is the week where he can finally make a contribution. Jeremy Shockey is not expected to suit up this week, but is looking better and better to be back next week.

New York Giants - It looks like all the relevant offensive starters will be on the field, including Burress who is fresh off his 2 game suspension. The D is at close to 100% and should produce fine in all leagues.

New York Jets - Laveranues Coles may be listed as questionable, but feel confident starting him.

Oakland - I'm not sure if McFadden will suit up. If he doesn't, that will boost Justin Fargas's value a bit.

Philadelphia - The biggest news is that Brian Westbrook is definitely out. Correll Buckhalter will start in his place. Reggie Brown is out as well, so Hank Baskett should see more targets from McNabb. Kevin Curtis might see the field this week, however your expectations should be limited this week.

St. Louis - Wide receivers Drew Bennett and Dane Looker are not expected to start today.

San Diego - Chris Chambers is not expected to start, so Vincent Jackson's value should go up this week if Rivers continues slinging the ball. Tomlinson will be pounding the ball today.

San Francisco - All offensive starters will be on the field.

Seattle - Matt Hasselbeck is not expected to play. Seneca Wallace, his backup, is also not expected to play which puts Charlie Frye (yes - that Charlie Frye of the Browns) behind center. Deion Branch saw a little action last week but will not be playing today. Maurice Morris should be back which means that Julius Jones owners should expect to see fewer carries.

Tampa Bay - Brian Griese missed Friday's practice, so Jeff Garcia will most likely get the nod today. While Joey Galloway continues to recover from his foot injury, Antonio Bryant will continue to get the targets.

Washington - All around, this is a pretty healthy team. Jason Taylor and Shawn Springs are both expected to start. No notable offensive injuries to report.
