Week 11 Early Injury Report


Quarterback

QB Charlie Batch - PIT

Batch broke his throwing hand during the game vs. Cleveland and was sidelined for the second half. He'll likely miss a couple of weeks according to coach Bill Cowher. Tommy Maddox finished the game for Pittsburgh - stay tuned. The team is hoping to have Ben Roethlisberger ready for this week's game but his status is still uncertain. We'll stay on that one for you this week.

QB Kyle Boller - BAL

Boller suffered a minor hand injury during a brutal afternoon vs. the Jaguars (4 sacks) - his hand was mashed while sandwiched between DE Bobby McCray and DB Terry Cousin. The injury is not considered serious at this time.

QB Jay Fiedler - NYJ

Fiedler missed the game on Sunday due to his ongoing shoulder woes (he was listed as out on Friday). He is said to be a couple of weeks away from returning to the lineup due to his dislocated shoulder.

QB Jeff Garcia - DET

Garcia did not play on Sunday due to his ongoing struggle with a leg injury. Joey Harrington had a solid afternoon in Garcia's absence.

QB Rex Grossman - CHI

Grossman missed another game on Sunday, as expected (ankle, out on Friday). The team expects to keep Kyle Orton in the lineup even when Grossman is able to get back on the field.

QB Kelly Holcomb - BUF

Holcomb was knocked out of the game on Sunday due to a concussion - the severity of the injury is being evaluated further. His backup, J.P. Losman, played well in relief of Holcomb, tossing 2 TDs and leading the Bills to a victory.

QB Ben Roethlisberger - PIT

Roethlisberger missed another game on Sunday due to his injured/scoped knee. Backup Charlie Batch broke his throwing hand on Sunday, forcing Tommy Maddox back into action. The team hopes that Roethlisberger can resume his starting role for the next game.

QB Alex Smith - SF

Smith was inactive again on Sunday due to his knee injury (he was listed as questionable on Friday).

QB Vinny Testaverde - NYJ

Testaverde was active but did not play on Sunday after being listed as probable due to his sore Achilles on Friday.


Running Back

RB B.J. Askew - NYJ

Askew was inactive on Sunday after being listed as probable on Friday despite his injured hamstring.

RB Cedric Benson - CHI

Benson suffered an ugly-looking knee injury during the game on Sunday. He was able to stand and walk after being carted off the field, though, which was a good sign. Said Benson "It (the replay of his injury) made me cringe as much as everybody else. It didnít look too good, but Iíve been blessed with some flexibility, and Iím just thankful that Iím able to stand here right now."

The Bears received relatively good news when the MRI results indicated that the injury is a MCL sprain, and may keep Benson sidelined for 3-6 weeks. No other ligament damage was detected.

RB Derrick Blaylock - NYJ

Blaylock missed the game on Sunday due to his injured ankle (he was listed as out on Friday's injury report).

RB Domanick Davis - HOU

Davis missed the game on Sunday due to his injured knee (he was listed as questionable on Friday).

RB Corey Dillon - NE

Dillon started the game as expected but lasted only one play on Sunday before exiting the game due to a calf injury. FB Heath Evans was pressed into service to relieve the injured Dillon, and did a decent job. The severity of the calf injury isn't currently known, but it could cost Dillon some significant time - stay tuned for the injury report on Wednesday but as usual with New England, they'll be as vague as possible. Said Dillon after the game "I just have to get healthy. I'm just now getting halfway over the ankle, then for something else to come up and set me back is tough. It's been a tough week. I'm not able to do what I should be doing and I'm more frustrated with that than anything. It's going to take me to get 100 percent healthy, because right now I'm not."

On a peronal note for Dillon, his father passed away last week and Dillon missed some practices to tend to family matters and the funeral.

RB Kevin Faulk - NE

Faulk remains sidelined due to his foot injury (he was listed as out on Friday).
