We break down the Wednesday practice participation report for week 10 of the 2011 NFL season. For more on fantasy football, check out Fake Teams.

The NFL enters week ten of the 2011 season with its first Thursday Night Football game on NFL Network. The Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers will square off in a huge AFC West matchup. Due to the early matchup, Wednesday marks the release of final injury report for the week. The rest of the league is issuing out their practice day one participation reports, with Monday Night Football joining the fun on Thursday.

Here are the pertinent fantasy performers on the final injury report for Raiders-Chargers. The rest of the practice participation reports are further down:

Out: RB Darren McFadden
Doubtful: WR Malcom Floyd
Questionable: K Sebastian Janikowski
Probable: QB Carson Palmer, RB Ryan Mathews

This week's first practice participation reports do not include a ton of surprises. The most notable inclusion as a DNP was Hakeem Nicks. The Giants wide receiver was expected to practice but was a late scratch. Nicks says he is feeling good and is happy with where he is at right now. Whether that means he will play on Sunday remains to be seen. Thursday and Friday reports will tell us a lot more.

We are starting to get more DNPs that are not injury related as veterans get a but more preference. At this point in the season, while practice is valuable, for veterans getting rested and 100% for Sunday is a bit more important. As the season rolls on we'll see more and more of this.
