Fantasy Football Injury News, Week 6: Calvin Johnson, Brett Favre Headline Injury Report

Here are the team by team injury reports for Week 6 of the NFL season.

Atlanta Falcons At Philadelphia Eagles

Much has been made of the mismatch this week between Eagles backup LT King Dunlap and Falcons DE John Abraham, but it may not even end up happening. Abraham is listed as questionable with a back injury and has been limited in practice all week. LB Sean Weatherspoon hasn't practiced all week and is also listed as questionable.

The Eagles will be without two starters this week with DT Brodrick Bunkley and OT Jason Peters. Michael Vick will likely dress for this game, but Kevin Kolb is the starter.

Baltimore Ravens At New England Patriots

Haloti Ngata is listed as questionable with a knee injury while Ray Rice has also been nursing a knee injury. Rice is listed as probable and will play. Ngata also expects to play.

For the Pats, only Fred Taylor is out for this one.

Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers

Both Seneca Wallace and Jake Delhomme are doubtful so rookie Colt McCoy gets the first start of his career and it comes against the Steelers in Pittsburgh. Anyone want to bet that McCoy is on the injury report next week? Just to make things worse for McCoy, the Browns #1 RB Peyton Hillis is questionable with a thigh injury.

The Steelers are fully healthy and have Ben Roethlisberger back. Sorry Browns.

Dallas Cowboys at Minnesota Vikings

WR Dez Bryant is questionable with rib and ankle injuries. He will be the dreaded "game time decision."

For the Vikings all eyes are on Brett Favre who was limited all week in practice and is listed as questionable with tendinitis in his elbow. Could Brett Favre's streak of 289 regular season starts end? Don't bet on it.

Detroit Lions at New York Giants

The Lions could be without WR Calvin Johnson who is questionable with shoulder and knee injuries. Johnson reportedly could not raise his arm above his shoulder even as late as Friday, so his status is clearly in doubt. He's a game time decision. QB Matthew Stafford was back in walk-throughs this week but won't play this weekend.

The Giants will be without Matthias Kiwanuka again. A tricky injury for them may also be to kicker Lawrence Tynes, who is listed as questionable with an ankle injury he suffered in practice this week. Tynes feels that he will play and the Giants haven't made a move for another kicker as of yet.

Kansas City Chiefs At Houston Texans

The Texans are beat up heading into this game with almost every "star" on the team listed on the injury report. LB Brian Cushing (knee), TE Owen Daniels (hamstring), RB Arian Foster (knee), WR Andre Johnson (ankle), LB DeMeco Ryans (groin), & DE Mario Williams (shoulder) are all listed. All are expected to play.

Miami Dolphins At Green Bay Packers

The Packers are coming into this game seriously beat up. TE Jermichael Finley is out. Plus, LB Clay Matthews is doubtful with a hamstring injury. The one bit of good news they've had this week is that it seem QB Aaron Rodgers will play after suffering a concussion last week.

New Orleans Saints At Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Saints will be without RB Pierre Thomas for another week. Reggie Bush is still out and CB Tracy Porter will also not play.

Tampa's leading receiver, rookie Mike Williams is questionable with a foot injury. Bucs coach Raheem Morris is positive about his chances to play but will have to make a game time decision.

"He looked good. He went out there, he ran a couple of routes. But you're talking about a receiver. You're talking about the delicacy of a foot. You're talking about a speed, skill position and being able to go out there and be 100 percent. He's a tough guy, he's got a lot of will, he wants to play and he's young. That's part of our football team. I've still got to list his status, though."

The Bucs will also be without starting center Jeff Faine.

New York Jets At Denver Broncos

Darrelle Revis is out this week as that hamstring continues to bother him. Although the Jets defense does look to get a boost with the return of LB Calvin Pace.

Brian Dawkins will be out this weekend which should be a blow to the Broncos defense. Their offense is also hurting with RB Knowshon Moreno and WR Demaryius Thomas listed a questionable. Moreno, who has missed 3 straight games, looks like he will return this weekend.

Oakland Raiders At San Francisco 49ers

QB Bruce Gradkowski will not play this weekend which means Jason Campbell gets the start for Oakland. RB Darren McFadden is still nursing a hamstring injury and is listed as questionable. He's a game time decision.

San Diego Chargers At St. Louis Rams

Both teams look generally ready to go here. LB Larry English will be out again for the Chargers.

Seattle Seahawks at Chicago Bears

Lance Briggs is questionable with an ankle injury.

Indianapolis Colts At Washington Redskins

The Colts once again have a completely beat up RB & WR corps. At this point they don't seem to have even one healthy back.

RB Joseph Addai (neck), RB Donald Brown (hamstring), WR Austin Collie (foot), WR Pierre Garcon (hamstring), WR Anthony Gonzalez (ankle), RB Mike Hart (hip) are all listed as questionable.

For the Redskins, Clinton Portis is out.
