Colts WR Anthony Gonzalez Out For The Year

The Indianapolis Colts placed former first round pick WR Anthony Gonzalez on injured reserve today with a ligament injury in his left knee. This is the second straight year Gonzalez will finish the season on IR. On the Colts’ friday injury report had Gonzalez listed as questionable, meaning he supposedly had a 50-50 chance of playing. Shows how much you can trust NFL injury reports.

Gonzalez is one of five players the Colts have left home as they traveled to Philadelphia for today’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Running backs Mike Hart and Joseph Addai were also left in Indy. WR Austin Collie has traveled with the team, but is still listed as questionable who apparently means he could do anything from play to be placed on IR.

The Colts injury situation is only exacerbated by the ridiculous position they’ve been put in by the NFL’s schedule makers. After playing on Monday night, they have to travel to the east coast on a short week to play a team coming off their bye.


NFL Week 9 Fantasy Football Injury News: Matt Hasselbeck and Chris Wells' Odd Injury

Philly get their fantasy stars back, Beanie Wells has the oddest injury of the week, who isn't injured in the Colts backfield, and a QB change in Seattle.

Arizona Cardinals At Minnesota Vikings

The oddest injury of the week has to be to Cardinal's RB Beanie Wells, who had an allergic reaction to a lubricant that was injected into his knee. They inject lubricant into knees? Insert your "tin man" jokes here. He's currently listed as questionable, but told reporters that he will play this weekend.

There's lots of problems with Vikings WR Percy Harvin. For one, he's listed as questionable with a sprained ankle. It should be noted though that he suffered the injury early in last week's game and still continued playing and was productive. He also reportedly had a heated argument with Vikings coach Brad Childress, who apparently questioned his effort during Friday's practice. Will there be any disciplinary effect from that? So far, it doesn't seem so.

Chicago Bears At Buffalo Bills

Buffalo will be without starting LB Andra Davis, who tore a labrum, will that help the Bears feeble running game?

Indianapolis Colts At Philadelphia Eagles

This game is all about who is returning for the Eagles. They'll be getting back fantasy stars Michael Vick & DeSean Jackson as well pro bowl LT Jason Peters, just in time to face another pro bowler in Dwight Freeney.

For Indy Anthony Gonzalez, Austin Collie, & Mike Hart are all questionable while Joseph Addai is doubtful with a neck injury.

Kansas City Chiefs At Oakland Raiders

Dexter McCluster is questionable again with an ankle injury

The Raiders are a bit beat up with WR Louis Murphy questionable and all pro CB Nnamdi Asomugha listed as doutbful with an ankle injury. TE Zach Miller is also doubtful for this one.

Miami Dolphins At Baltimore Ravens

No fantasy injuries of note

New England Patriots At Cleveland Browns

No Fred Taylor again this week for the Pats. Deion Branch is considered questionable.

New Orleans Saints At Carolina Panthers

Still no Pierre Thomas or Reggie Bush for the Saints, but nothing new for them.

For the Panthers, RB DeAngelo Williams is doubtful with a foot injury

New York Giants At Seattle Seahawks

Matt Hasslbeck will not be able to go for Seattle, neither will WR Golden Tate. That means Charlie Whitehurst starts at QB and he will have WR Mike Williams ready to go this week.

New York Jets At Detroit Lions

No fantasy injuries of note

San Diego Chargers At Houston Texans

Nate Kaeding is still out for San Diego while WR Malcom Floyd and TE Antonio Gates are both questionable.

TE Owen Daniels is questionable for the Texans, but he's been almost all year.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers At Atlanta Falcons

There's two beat up fullbacks in this game. Atlanta's Ovie Mughelli is questionable and Tampa's Earnest Graham is out.

Dallas Cowboys At Green Bay Packers (Sunday Night)

Obviously Tony Romo is out for Dallas. Green Bay will be without WR Donald Driver.
