Fantasy Football: Week 11 Injury Report
Quarterbacks Kevin Kolb (ARI)--The Cardinals consider Kevin Kolb questionable for this week's matchup with the Falcons after he was unable to practice on Thursday. Kolb continues to deal with a rib injury he sustained over a month ago and appears to be on the right track back to the starting lineup if the Cardinals are now considering him questionable rather than doubtful. Jay Cutler (CHI)--The Bears will likely be without Jay Cutler in this week's game against the 49ers after he sustained a concussion in Week 10. Although the Bears have ye tot officially rule him out for Week 11, he has yet to practice which means we should expect to see Jason Campbell taking the snaps come Monday. Mark Sanchez (NYJ)–The Jets will have Mark Sanchez under center on Sunday, despite the fact that he has been dealing with a lower back injury for most of the season. He was a full participant in practice on Thursday and will be listed as probable on the team’s official injury report. Michael Vick (PHI)--After failing to practice all week, the Eagles will likely be without Michael Vick when they take on the Redskins on Sunday. Vick suffered a concussion is last week's loss to the Cowboys and has yet to pass all the tests needed to return to game action, so consider his doubtful at this point. Ben Roethlisberger (PIT)--The Steelers have already ruled Ben Roethlisberger out for Sunday's game against the Ravens after sustaining a life-threatening shoulder injury last week. The team will be extra cautious with Roethlisberger and his recovery due to the severity of the injury and there has yet to be a timetable set for his return. Alex Smith (SF)--After being a limited participant in practice on Thursday, Alex Smith will likely be considered questionable for Monday night's game against the Bears. Smith sustained a concussion in the first half of last week's game and will get an extra day of practice to try and get on the field for this NFC showdown, so be sure to keep an eye on his situation if you need to play him. Running Backs Ray Rice (BAL)--It appears Ray Rice's toe injury is not as serious as originally expected after he was able to be a full participant in practice on Thursday. Rice injured the toe in last week's win over the Raiders and will be considered probable on the team's official injury report. Trent Richardson (CLE)--The Browns will likely have their rookie running back on the field on Sunday after he was able to be a full participant in practice on Thursday. Richardson is dealing with chest, rib and finger injuries, but none appear to be serious enough to keep him out of the lineup when the Browns take on the Cowboys on Sunday. DeMarco Murray (DAL)–After missing practice all week it is unlikely that DeMarco Murray will be on the field when the Cowboys take on the Browns. Murray missed the team’s last four games with the same foot injury and it does not appear like it is getting any better, so he may miss even more time moving forward. Ben Tate (HOU)–The Texans are hopeful that Ben Tate will be ready to go for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars, but he has yet to practice this week. Tate is dealing with a hamstring injury that has given him trouble for most of the season and will be considered questionable once the team’s official injury report is released. Donald Brown (IND)--For the second day in a row Donald Brown was unable to practice and will be considered questionable on the team's official injury report. Brown is dealing with the same knee injury that has given in trouble for most of the season and will need to practice on Friday if he want to play against the Patriots on Sunday. Darren Sproles (NO)–After being a full participant in practice on Thursday the Saints expect to have Darren Sproles back in the starting lineup when they take on the Raiders. Sproles suffered a broken hand just over two weeks ago, but has found a way to deal with the pain and appears to be on track to play Sunday despite early reports of him expecting to miss more time. Darren McFadden (OAK)–The Raiders will likely be without Darren McFadden on Sunday after he suffered a high ankle sprain in a Week 9 loss to the Buccaneers. He has yet to practice this week and if he doesn't on Friday, he should be listed as doubtful for Week 11 against the Saints. Marcel Reece (OAK)--It appears the Raiders will have Marcel Reece's services on Sunday after he was able to fully participate in practice for the second straight day on Thursday. Reece is dealing with a hamstring injury but it does not appear to be serious enough for him to miss any time. Rashard Mendenhall (PIT)–After fully participating in practice on Thursday, the Steelers will likely list Rashard Mendenhall as probable for this week’s game against the Ravens. Mendenhall appears to be over the Achilles' injury that has held him out the last few weeks so expect ot see him take back the lead-back role for the Steelers on Sunday. Ryan Mathews (SD)--The Chargers may be without the services of Ryan Mathews on Sunday after he failed to practice for the second straight day on Thursday. Mathews is dealing with a neck issue and will likely be listed as questionable on the team's official injury report. Frank Gore (SF)--After fully participating in practice on Thursday it appears Frank Gore will be ready to go for Monday night's game against the Bears. Gore is dealing with both a rib and wrist injury, but both injuries don't appears to be serious at this point. Wide Receivers Julio Jones (ATL)--After missing practice for the second straight day, the Falcons may be without Julio Jones when they take on the Cardinals on Sunday. Jones has been dealing with an ankle injury following last week's loss to the Saints and will be considered questionable on the Falcons official injury report. Torrey Smith (BAL)--The Ravens expected to have Torrey Smith for this week's game against the Steelers despite limiting him in practice this week. Smith is dealing with a chest injury but it does not appear to be serious considering the fact he was able to practice without suffering any setbacks. Alshon Jeffery (CHI)–The Bears held rookie Alshon was limited practice on Thursday and is considered questionable for Monday’s game against the 49ers. Jeffery suffered a hand injury in Week 5 and has yet to return to game action since the injured occurred. Calvin Johnson (DET)–After being limited in practice on Thursday the Lions consider Calvin Johnson to be questionable for this week’s game against the Packers. Johnson is dealing with a minor knee injury that he sustained in the team’s Week 7 loss to the Bears, but it does not appear to be too serious. Titus Young (DET)–Although Titus Young was limited in practice on Thursday, he is expected to play against the Packers on Sunday. Young is dealing with a knee injury that has been troubling him over the last month of the season but it does not appear to be serious. Greg Jennings (GB)--As expected, Greg Jennings was held out of practice with week and will not play against the Lions on Sunday. Jennings continues to recover from abdominal surgery while nursing a groin injury, but from what is coming from the Packers coaching staff, it appears he is on the right track in his rehab. Jordy Nelson (GB)--Despite being limited in practice on Thursday the Packers expect to have Jordy Nelson on the field when they take on the Lions. Nelson is still dealing with both hamstring and foot injuries that forced him to miss time, but unless he suffers a setback, he will play on Sunday. Brandon Lloyd (NE)–Although Brandon Lloyd was a limited participant in practice on Thursday, the Patriots expect to have him on the field on Sunday when they take on the Colts. Lloyd is dealing with a minor knee injury and should be listed as probable once the team’s official injury report is released. Wes Welker (NE)–After missing practice again on Thursday, the Patriots may be without Wes Welker for Sunday's game against the Colts. He is currently dealing with a nagging ankle injury that has forced him onto the injury report the last few weeks, but it’s nothing that should be considered too serious. Jeremy Maclin (PHI)--The Expect expect to have Jeremy Maclin for Sunday's game against the Redskins after being a full participant in practice on Thursday. Maclin is dealing with a back injury, but unless he suffers a setback, expect him to play come Sunday. Antonio Brown (PIT)–The Steelers will likely be without Antonio Brown on Sunday after he failed to practice once again on Thursday. Brown suffered an ankle injury that forced him out of the Steelers Week 9 win over the Giants and may be out past this week’s game. Pierre Garcon (WAS)--For the first time in over a month, the Redskins may be with the services on Pierre Garcon on Sunday when they take on the Eagles. Garcon has missed most of the season with a foot injury and will likely be considered questionable on the team's official injury report. Tight Ends Tony Gonzalez (ATL)--Despite dealing with a shoulder injury, Tony Gonzalez was able to be a full participant in practice on Thursday and is considered probable for this week's game against the Saints. Gonzalez injured his shoulder in last week's loss to the Saints but it does not appear to be anything serious.

Daniel's is dealing with a back and a thumb injury, both of which appear to be minor at this point. Aaron Hernandez (NE)–The Patriots hope to have Aaron Hernandez on the field on Sunday after he was able to be a limited participant in practice on Thursday. Hernandez has been dealing with an ankle injury for most of the season and will need to step it up at practice if he wants to play this week. Rob Gronkowski (NE)--Despite being limited in practice over the last few days, the Patriots consider Rob Gronkowski probable for this week's game against the Colts. Gronkowski is still dealing with the same hip injury that has been bothering him for most of the season, but it doesn't appear to be serious at this point.
