We break down the Wednesday practice participation report for week 14 of the 2011 NFL season, including final injury reports for Thursday's Steelers-Browns game. For more on fantasy football, check out Fake Teams.

Week 14 of the 2011 NFL season gets going Thursday evening with the Pittsburgh Steelers hosting the Cleveland Browns on Thursday Night Football. The start of Week 14 also means the start of fantasy football playoffs. Injuries are all the more significant as you enter one and done territory with the playoffs.

Thursday night's game does not feature a ton of injury question marks, but there are some problems. Browns running back Peyton Hillis is questionable for the game with a hip issue. He's not a good start even if healthy, but if he is a guy you are counting on this week, odds are good that he will play. He took some first team reps, which is always big. If he is a last minute scratch, Montario Hardesty would get the start.

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

Out: WR Emmanuel Sanders
Questionable: RB Peyton Hillis
Probable: QB Ben Roethlisberger, RB Montario Hardesty, RB Rashard Mendenhall, TE Heath Miller

The Sunday NFL participants released their Wednesday practice report and we have a whole host of DNPs. Kevin Smith is one of the bigger question marks of the week. Smith sat out last Wednesday as well, but this week he is coming off an aggravation of his ankle injury. Maurice Morris would get the start if Smith is a no-go for Sunday.
