Week 15 NFL Injury Report, Wednesday: Adrian Peterson Likely In, Matt Forte Likely Out

We break down the Wednesday practice participation report for week 15 of the 2011 NFL season, including final injury reports for Thursday's Jaguars-Falcons game. For more on fantasy football, check out Fake Teams.

Week 15 of the 2011 NFL season gets going Thursday evening with the Atlanta Falcons hosting the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday Night Football. The start of Week 15 also means fantasy football playoffs are in full swing for virtually every league out there. Injuries are all the more significant as you enter one and done territory with the playoffs.

Thursday Night Football actually has virtually no real question marks for fantasy football purposes. For the Jaguars, Maurice Jones-Drew is listed as probable, but he basically spends the entire season as probable. He will play on Thursday so there is nothing about which you really need to be concerned.

The Falcons have many of their skill position players set at probable as well, but again, probable players almost always play. Tony Gonzalez, Julio Jones, Harry Douglas and Michael Turner are all going to play on Thursday. Listing them is gamesmanship more than anything else.

Here are the pertinent players from the final injury reports for Thursday Night Football:

Questionable: K Josh Scobee
Probable: RB Maurice Jones-Drew, RB Michael Turner, WR Julio Jones, WR Harry Douglas, TE Tony Gonzalez, K Matt Bryant

Sunday teams released their first injury reports of the week. The most notable information is that Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is expected to play on Sunday, in spite of only a limited workout on Wednesday. On the other hand, Bears RB Matt Forte is almost assuredly out given what he told the media on Wednesday. Lions running back Kevin Smith remains a question mark as he sat out the team portion of practice. He did some individual work and apparently looked fine, but he remains a question mark. We'll keep an eye on him the rest of the week.
