NFL Injury Report: Time To Check Your Fantasy Football Lineup

It's Saturday, which means all teams playing on Sunday have released their final injury reports. You'll want to check these out and set your fantasy lineups accordingly.

Arizona Cardinals at St. Louis Rams

The big one here is RB Beanie Wells, who is listed as questionable with a knee bruise or sprain depending on who you believe. Wells hasn't practiced all week but Cardinals' coach Ken Whisenhunt said Wells might contribute "a few plays" on Sunday. Either way, he shouldn't be anywhere near your lineup. Wells' understudy RB Tim Hightower is probably a sure start this week. With Derrick Anderson at QB and Beanie Wells on the bench, Hightower may very well be the entire Arizona offense this Sunday.

The Rams have no notable injuries to report.

Atlanta Falcons At Pittsburgh Steelers

Another game, another major fantasy option out. Falcons' WR Michael Jenkins is officially OUT for Sunday with a shoulder injury.

For the Steelers, Byron Leftwich is out so Dennis Dixon gets the start at QB. The fantasy impact is minimal, because you shouldn't be starting either one.

Carolina Panthers at New York Giants

The Panthers will be without starting RT Jeff Otah, which certainly won't help them against the Giants' pass rush. Not that you would have started Matt Moore anyway...

The Giants may be without CB Aaron Ross who is listed as doubtful with a foot injury, but that shouldn't have a major impact. The Giants defense is still probably a strong play against the Panthers.

Cincinnati Bengals vs New England Patriots

The Bengals have no fantasy injuries of note.

The Patriots will be without T Nick Kaczur. WR Julian Edelman is listed as questionable with a foot injury and Laurence Maroney is questionable with a thigh. Right now, Fred Taylor is slated to start at RB. He might be a flex option. Sit Maroney.

Cleveland Browns vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

DT Shaun Rogers is questionable, which could weaken the Browns defense against the run. Could mean good things for Bucs RB Cadillac Williams.

QB Josh Freeman will play Sunday for the Bucs but is suffering from an injured right thumb. The only fantasy play of note that might be affected is TE Kellen Winslow, but probably not to any great degree.

Denver Broncos at Jacksonville Jaguars

Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno is probable with a hamstring. He's expected to split carries with Correll Buckhalter, which probably doesn't make either more than a flex start.

Detroit Lions At Chicago Bears

No real fantasy injuries of note

Green Bay Packers At Philadelphia Eagles

No new injuries of note here. It's probably just worth keeping in mind that the Packers will be without starting CB Al Harris and starting S Atari Bigby for 6 weeks. Nickel corner Brandon Underwood is also out. 

Indianapolis Colts At Houston Texans

Colts WR Anthony Gonzalez is questionable with a back injury.

For the Texans, TE Owen Daniels will play but is battling a a knee injury. RB Steve Slaton is probable with a toe.

MIami Dolphins At Buffalo Bills

Brandon Marshall is probable with an ankle. He was added to the injury list late in the week and the injury doesn't appear to be anything to worry about. Still, against a good Bills secondary it may be worth watching,

The Bills are down three LBs this week. Could mean good things for Miami RBs.

Oakland Raiders At Tennessee Titans

RB Michael Bush was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable with a thumb. Darren McFadden is favored to get the start in Oakland.

San Francisco 49ers At Seattle Seahawks

Nothing of note

Dallas Cowboys At Washington Redskins

The Cowboys will be without starting offensive lineman Marc Colombo & Kyle Kosier. An already good Redskins defense should be a stronger start as a result.

For the Redskins, QB Donovan McNabb is listed as questionable with an ankle even though he's guaranteed that he'll play. Still, he's not at 100% against a good Dallas defense with limited weapons at WR. Is he even a start in a 12 team league with one QB slot?

Baltimore Ravens at New York Jets

LB Calvin Pace is out, which could hurt the Jets Defense a bit.

San Diego Chargers At Kansas City Chiefs

Chargers LB Shawne Merriman is not considered likely to play, but the Chargers Defense is still probably a strong start against the Chiefs.
