NFC West injury report: Mario Manningham, Early Doucet on mend

Karl Walter

There weren't many major injuries Week 15 in the NFC West, but a pair of wide receivers are working their way back into action after missing some time.

The NFC West was remarkably unscathed in Week 15, with Clark Haggans of the San Francisco 49ers one of the few players forced out of a game due to injury.

The backup outside linebacker had to leave Sunday night's win over the New England Patriots with a shoulder injury and did not return. Fellow backup linebacker Tavares Gooden has a rib injury and is also missing time, leaving the team somewhat short at linebacker. Wide receiver Mario Manningham has been out for the past two games with a shoulder injury, but he's listed as questionable for next week's game.

The Seattle Seahawks were able to get out of their meeting with the Buffalo Bills in Toronto relatively easily, but they still retain some injuries in their secondary from earlier in the year: Marcus Trufant has missed the last three weeks with a hamstring injury, and Walter Thurmond was unable to go on Sunday, also with a hamstring injury. Richard Sherman and Jeremy Lane have handled themselves just fine as the team's cornerbacks, so their return isn't of the utmost importance.

The Arizona Cardinals are fairly dinged up from past weeks, with Early Doucet highlighting a list of injured players. He missed Sunday's victory over the Detroit Lions with a concussion, and is questionable going forward. Ronald Talley, James Snyder, and Dan Williams also sat Sunday.

Tight end Mike McNeill had to sit for the St. Louis Rams in their loss to the Minnesota Vikings, and his return going forward is questionable.
