Fantasy Football: Week 12 Injury Report
Quarterbacks Kevin Kolb (ARI)–The Cardinals consider Kevin Kolb questionable for this week’s matchup with the Rams after he was limited 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. Matt Ryan (ATL)--Despite dealing with a finger injury he sustained in last week's win over the Cardinals, Matt Ryan was able to fully participate in practice on Thursday. The injury was never considered serious, but this clears up any questions fantasy owners may have had about his status for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. Jay Cutler (CHI)–After being a limited participant in practice on Thursday, the Bears are hopeful that Jay Cutler will be able to return to Bears starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Cutler missed last week's game due to a concussion, but has passed all of his tests, so as long as there aren't any setbacks, he should be a go for Sunday. Michael Vick (PHI)–After failing to practice all week, the Eagles will likely be without Michael Vick when they take on the Panthers on Monday night. Vick suffered a concussion in the Eagles Week 10 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 consider Ben Roethlisberger doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Browns after sustaining a life-threatening shoulder and rib injury in Week 10. 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. Running Backs LaRod Stephens-Howling (ARI)--After being limited in practice for most of the week the Cardinals will likely consider LaRod Stephens-Howling questionable for this week's game against the Rams. Stephens-Howling is dealing with a rib injury he sustained in last week's loss to the Falcons, but the injury does not appear to be serious enough to keep him out of action. Michael Turner (ATL)--The Falcons are hopeful that Michael Tuner will be able to play on Sunday after being limited in practice this week. Turner is dealing with a groin injury and will likely be listed as questionable on the Falcons official injury report later on today. Fred Jackson (BUF)--The Bills expect to have Fred Jackson in their backfield on Sunday when they take on the Colts after he was able to fully participate in practice on Thursday. Jackson missed last week's game due to a concussion but was cleared to resume football activities so expect him to split carries with C.J. Spiller come Sunday. C.J. Spiller (BUF)--After fully participating in practice on Thursday, the Bills will likely listed C.J. Spiller as probable for this weekend's game against the Colts. Spiller is still dealing with a shoulder injury he sustained in the early weeks of the season, but it does not appear to be anything to worry about if you are a fantasy owner. 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 Steelers on Sunday. 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 Bills on Sunday. Adrian Peterson (MIN)--The Vikings will be with the services of Adrian Peterson for Week 12 after he was a full participant in practice this week. Peterson is dealing with a minor ankle injury, but it won't be enough to keep him off the field against the Bears 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 49ers. Sproles suffered a broken hand just over three weeks ago, but has found a way to deal with the pain and appears to be on track to play Sunday despite early reports that he would miss six weeks. Ahmad Bradshaw (NYG)--Despite the fact that he has yet to practice this week, the Giants are hopeful that Ahmad Bradshaw will be able to play on Sunday. Bradshaw is dealing with a lingering foot injury, but it has yet to bother him enough for him to miss any time, so be sure to check his status later prior to game 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 12 against the Bengals. 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. LeSean McCoy (PHI)--There is a good chance that the Eagles will be without the services of LeSean McCoy in Week 12 after he has yet to be cleared to resume football activities. McCoy suffered a concussion in last week's blowout loss to the Redskins and unless some drastic changes with his injury, he won't be on the field come Monday night. Frank Gore (SF)–After fully participating in practice on Thursday it appears Frank Gore will be ready to go for Sunday's showdown with the Saints. Gore is dealing with both a rib and wrist injury, but both injuries don’t appears to be serious at this point. Steven Jackson (STL)--Despite being a limited participant in practice on Thursday, the Rams expect to have Steven Jackson in their backfield when they take on the Cardinals on Sunday. Jackson is dealing with a minor foot injury, but it doesn't appear to be anything to worry about at this point. Wide Receivers Julio Jones (ATL)–The Falcons will likely have Julio Jones in the starting lineup on Sunday when they take on the Buccaneers after he was able to practice on Thursday. He was limited in practice for the second straight week, but considering he played last week, he should be able to play this week as well. Steve Smith (CAR)--The Panthers may be without the services of Steve Smith on Sunday after he was unable to practice on Thursday. This week's game isn't until Monday night, so there is still a chance that he practices either today or Saturday, so be sure to following this situation closely the next few days. Alshon Jeffery (CHI)–After injuring his knee in Monday's loss to the 49ers, the Bears have ruled out Alshon Jeffery for Week 12. Jeffery was playing in his first game in a month, but it didn't last long before he found himself on the sideline once again. Brandon Marshall (CHI)--The Bears are hopeful that they will have Brandon Marshall on the field on Sunday, after he was limited in practice throughout the week. Marshall is dealing with a shoulder injury and will likely be listed as questionable on the team's official injury report when it is released. Demaryious Thomas (DEN)--The Broncos expect to have Demaryious Thomas on the field on Sunday when they take on teh Chiefs after he was able to fully participate in practice on Thursday. Thomas has been dealing with a knee injury since last week's win over the Chargers, but it does not appear to be serious enough for him to miss any time. Greg Jennings (GB)–For the first time in almost a month, Greg Jennings was a limited participant in practice this week making him questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers. Jennings has been recovering from abdominal surgery and appears to be on the right track back from his rehab, so monitor his status closely as we get closer to Sunday. Donnie Avery (IND)--The Colts expect to have Donnie Avery on the field on Sunday after he was able to full participate in practice on Thursday. Avery suffered a head injury in last week's loss to the Colts, but is showing no concussion-like symptoms, making it likely that he will play in Week 12. Dwayne Bowe (KC)--Although Dwayne Bowe is dealing with both neck and back injuries, the Chiefs expect him to lineup as the team's No. 1 wide receiver on Sunday. Bowe sustained both injuries in last week's loss to the Bengals, a game in which he failed to record a reception, but the injuries do not appear to be anything to worry about if you are a fantasy owner. Percy Harvin (MIN)--Although the Vikings are coming off of a bye week in which Percy Harvin was able to rest his injured ankle, it does not appear he will be able to return to the field on Sunday. Harvin has yet to practice this week and if he doesn't practice on Friday, expect to see him listed as doubtful on the team's official injury report. Darrius Heyward-Bey (OAK)--After being a limited participant in practice on Thursday, the Raiders will likely consider Darrius Heyward-Bey as questionable on the team's official injury report. Heyward-Bey is currently dealing with a minor hamstring injury and if he is able to practice in full on Friday he should be a go for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Antonio Brown (PIT)–The Steelers will likely consider Antonio Brown questionable for this week's game against the Browns after he was able to be a limited participant in practice on Thursday. Brown is still dealing with an ankle in jury he sustained three weeks ago and unless he suffers a setback, there is a chance he plays in Week 12. Danny Amendola (STL)--The Rams will likely be without the services of Danny Amendola in this week's game against the Cardinals after he was spotted wearing a walking boot earlier in the week. Amendola is dealing with a foot injury and has yet to practice this week making it unlikely he plays in Week 12. Tight Ends Brandon Myers (OAK)–The Raiders expect to have Brandon Myers on the field on Sunday when they take on the Bengals despite being a limited participant in practice on Thursday. Myers is dealing with a shoulder injury, but it does not appear to be serious enough for him to miss any time. Brent Celek (PHI)--Despite being taken out of last week's game against the Redskins with a head injury, the Eagles expect to have Brent Celek on the field for Monday night's game against the Panthers. Be sure to check his status before setting fantasy lineups on Sunday to get a more definitive answer on his status for Week 12.
