Week 2 Players in the News


Quarterback

QB Kyle Boller (BAL) is out this week with his injured toe (although he's listed on the injury report with a "foot" injury). We've heard he will miss anywhere from 3-8 weeks. It is likely that his return will be based upon the play of Anthony Wright. If Wright plays well, there will be no need to rush Boller back onto the field. [Wed Sep 14, 8:49 PM]

QB Kordell Stewart (BAL) was signed by the Ravens to backup Anthony Wright and the injured Kyle Boller. [Wed Sep 14, 8:10 PM]

QB Anthony Wright (BAL) will start in place of the injured Kyle Boller. We've heard that Boller will miss from 3-8 weeks with his injured toe. Wright should be available in most leagues, so if you are desperate for a starting QB he could help you out for at least a few weeks and maybe longer according to coach Billick. "Anthony Wright is our starting quarterback, and he will be our starting quarterback until circumstances change," Billick said. "That's the only approach we can take. Anthony Wright is our starting quarterback, and Kyle will be in a boot watching the game this weekend. That's about as far as we're going to go forward with it." [Wed Sep 14, 8:52 PM]

QB Jake Delhomme (CAR) did not practice on Friday due to an undisclosed infection, but he is expected to be fine and play this weekend. [Fri Sep 16, 10:14 PM]

QB Chris Weinke (CAR) was added to the injury report as probable. He practiced again on Friday and is expected to play this Sunday despite his injured back. [Fri Sep 16, 10:33 PM]

QB Todd Collins (KC) practiced on Wednesday and is close to being able to return as the team’s backup QB. [Wed Sep 14, 8:50 PM]

QB Gus Frerotte (MIA) said an X-ray on his right hand was negative and that he had only a bruise on his right index finger after banging it on a helmet Sunday against Denver. [Thu Sep 15, 0:09 AM]

QB Tom Brady (NE) practiced as normal on Friday and will start as normal on Sunday. [Fri Sep 16, 10:09 PM]

QB Tom Brady (NE) practiced again on Thursday and will start as normal this weekend. [Thu Sep 15, 9:46 PM]

QB Tom Brady (NE) is listed on the official injury report as probable with a “right shoulder”, but there is nothing to worry about. He practiced on Wednesday and will start as usual on Sunday. [Wed Sep 14, 8:50 PM]

QB Kerry Collins (OAK) practiced again on Friday and is expected to play this Sunday despite his bruised thumb. [Fri Sep 16, 10:12 PM]

QB Kerry Collins (OAK) is expected to play this weekend despite an injured right thumb. [Wed Sep 14, 11:45 PM]

QB Donovan McNabb (PHI) has been upgraded to probable on the injury report. He practiced again on Friday and is expected to start this Sunday. He'll wear a slightly different pair of shoulder pads. "We have a little protective reinforcement in there for him and he's getting used to that," head coach Andy Reid said. "He seems to be able to do everything. I was being a little cautious with him yesterday and he didn't want any part of that. He felt good and went out and made all the throws. I was not sure how he was going to do with the deep ball yesterday, but I think he answered that. He threw the ball well." Reid sounded confident McNabb would not be changing his normal style: "He has full movement to run. I don't necessarily want him to get hit there again, but if needed, he will run."

[Fri Sep 16, 10:23 PM]

QB Donovan McNabb (PHI) was able to practice on Thursday and seems on track to start this weekend despite his chest contusion. ``If you ask me, there's no doubt about it. I'll be out there,'' McNabb said. ``It's just being able to see how your body reacts to an up-tempo practice.'' The key will be how he's feeling Friday morning after Thursday's work. ``It's a slow process,'' McNabb said. ``I wanted to get out there and test it out to see actually how it would feel. It will be interesting to see the reaction after tomorrow, how the body will react to it.'' [Thu Sep 15, 9:54 PM]

QB Donovan McNabb (PHI) did not practice Wednesday and he's listed as questionable on the injury report. He sounded pretty confident he would play Sunday however. "Nothing would ever stop me from getting back on that field," McNabb said. Coach Andy Reid said he would see how McNabb heals this week and will make a decision in a few days. Koy Detmer and Mike McMahon split snaps with the first team offense Wednesday and Reid would not say which one would start if McNabb was unable to go. McMahon is more athletic but Detmer has much more experience in that system.

[Wed Sep 14, 3:38 PM]

QB Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) will be a game time decision. He practiced Friday and looked good. "He knew that he needed to practice today in order to play on Sunday, and he did," offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt said. "He did fine. He got all the reps. He saw some things out there, which he needed to see. The timing was just a little bit off. He still had a little residual soreness. But he took all the snaps today (Friday)." It's a little interesting as coach Cowher had a team spokesman tell the media that Roethlisberger would be a game time decision. The team stated that Roethlisberger would not be available to the media Saturday. Roethlisberger sounds confident in Maddox but clearly thinks he'll be there. "Obviously, Tommy can handle this team," Roethlisberger told The Tribune-Review on Thursday, "but I'm going to make sure that I'm out there." Bill Cowher makes that decision however and he's saying it will Sunday before he makes that call.

[Sat Sep 17, 9:20 PM]

QB Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) practiced Friday which is a good sign as the Steelers are one of those teams that puts a strong emphasis on the "practice Friday to play on Sunday" idea. "I'll be ready by Sunday. I'm just trying to take care of myself and make sure I'm healthy," Roethlisberger told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. [Fri Sep 16, 10:16 PM]

QB Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) was downgraded to questionable on Thursday’s injury report after not being able to complete practice with the team. The team is calling his injury a "bone bruise". "He worked a little bit today, not as much as I'd hoped he would," coach Bill Cowher said of Roethlisberger after practice. "It was not really any kind of setback. He does have a bone bruise and it just has not responded as quickly as I'd hoped, and his status is day-to-day." [Thu Sep 15, 8:47 PM]

QB Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) rested his sore knee on Wednesday but is fully expected to start as usual this weekend. [Wed Sep 14, 8:52 PM]

QB Matt Hasselbeck (SEA) has been limited in practice this week with a sore arm but looks to be good to go for Sunday. Said coach Mike Holmgren, "His arm's sore, so we just backed him off. He'll play Sunday." [Fri Sep 16, 11:12 PM]

QB Mark Brunell (WAS) has been named the team’s starting QB in place of Patrick Ramsey. This move has nothing to do with Ramsey’s neck injury (he’s not even on the injury report). [Wed Sep 14, 8:50 PM]

QB Patrick Ramsey (WAS) addressed media reports suggesting that he had asked to be traded: "I'm not leading anybody to believe anything. Coach Gibbs and I have talked and what was said is between us. I haven't specifically told Coach that I want a trade." [Thu Sep 15, 0:26 AM]

Running Back

RB J.J. Arrington (ARI) is still battling the flu. His status will be determined Sunday morning to see if he can go. Marcel Shipp would start if Arrington can't go. [Sat Sep 17, 9:35 PM]

RB Cedric Benson (CHI) will be more involved this week according to coach Lovie Smith. We'd like to get him more involved," said Smith. "We haven't decided exactly when (he will play). But the plan was to bring him along. We got him into the second half last week and we would like to get him in earlier this week. Each day he gets a little bit better learning our offense. We feel better about him and the plan is to get him more reps this week." [Fri Sep 16, 10:28 PM]

RB Lee Suggs (CLE) practiced again on Friday. His injured ankle is improving, and there is a chance he could see the field on Sunday although he is still listed as questionable. If he does play, it will likely be nothing more than spot duty behind Reuben Droughns. [Fri Sep 16, 10:29 PM]

RB Mike Anderson (DEN) has been upgraded to probable on the injury report. He practiced fully on Friday and is expected to play this Sunday with his injured ribs. According to a Foxsports.com report, he "ran without pain Friday, showing little indication he had sore ribs". "He had a lot of reps in practice today and looked pretty good out there," Denver coach Mike Shanahan said. "So unless there's a setback, he should be ready to go." Anderson wore a flak jacket-type protector to minimize further damage to his ribs. Shanahan said he did not think the injury would keep Anderson from going full speed. [Fri Sep 16, 10:08 PM]

RB Mike Anderson (DEN) did not practice on Thursday as he was attending a funeral. He hopes to be able to participate in Friday’s session despite his injured ribs. How his body reacts on Friday will determine whether or not he will play this weekend. Most folks close to the situation think he'll start. [Thu Sep 15, 10:16 PM]

RB Mike Anderson (DEN) did very light work with this scout team on Wednesday. His status for this weekend is in doubt due to his injured ribs. Coach Mike Shanahan sounded optimistic after Wednesday's practice: "He looked pretty good. Hopefully there's no setback," Shanahan said, "but our plan is to try to practice him on Friday, and we'll wait and see how he does." [Wed Sep 14, 11:12 PM]

RB Larry Johnson (KC) was cited Monday for domestic abuse assault. He posted bond and was released. Chiefs coach Dick Vermeil said the incident will not affect Johnson's standing with the team. There have also been eyewitness reports from employees of the bar where the incident occurrd that reportedly would clear Johnson of any wrongdoing. This may have long term implications, but will not affect him this week. [Wed Sep 14, 4:10 PM]

RB Tony Richardson (KC) has improved and looks like he'll see playing time Sunday. [Sat Sep 17, 9:39 PM]

RB Willie Parker (PIT) was endorsed Wednesday by Duce Staley: "If he's out there running and he's doing what he's doing, and putting up great numbers and we're winning, without a doubt - leave him in there," Staley said of Parker. "And Jerome will tell you the same thing. You got to understand we went through the same thing last year. I got hurt and Jerome went in, and we didn't miss a beat. So, here we go again. Willie comes in and we don't miss a beat." Staley would prefer to move into the lineup slowly, as opposed to jumping in feet first and being the featured back right away. "I have to be patient," said Staley. [Thu Sep 15, 9:40 AM]

RB Willie Parker (PIT) will get the start again this weekend as Duce Staley and Jerome Bettis are still hobbled with injuries. If he continues to shine, it would not be unreasonable to see Parker continue as the starter even after Staley and Bettis return. Remember that HC Bill Cowher had no problem keeping Tommy Maddox on the bench while Ben Roethlisberger prospered. [Wed Sep 14, 8:54 PM]

RB Duce Staley (PIT) practiced again Friday but remains questionable. If he does play, he'll back up Willie Parker. [Fri Sep 16, 10:17 PM]

RB Duce Staley (PIT) returned to practice on Thursday but remains iffy for this weekend. His status will likely boil down to how his knee responds on Friday morning. If he is fine, then he could be available for action on Sunday. Even if he does make it to the field, Staley will play second fiddle to Willie Parker. [Thu Sep 15, 8:48 PM]

RB Duce Staley (PIT) said Wednesday that he was fine with Willie Parker staying on the field: "If he's out there running and he's doing what he's doing, and putting up great numbers and we're winning, without a doubt - leave him in there," Staley said of Parker. "And Jerome will tell you the same thing. You got to understand we went through the same thing last year. I got hurt and Jerome went in, and we didn't miss a beat. So, here we go again. Willie comes in and we don't miss a beat." Staley would prefer to move into the lineup slowly, as opposed to jumping in feet first and being the featured back right away. "I have to be patient," said Staley. [Thu Sep 15, 9:41 AM]

RB Duce Staley (PIT) did not practice on Wednesday. Officially, it is 50/50 that he'll play this weekend, but he'll likely sit again since Fast Willie Parker had such an outstanding opening game. [Wed Sep 14, 8:55 PM]
