Week 16 Early Injury Report


Quarterback

QB Marc Bulger - STL

Bulger was once again sidelined due to his injured right shoulder. It doesn't look like he's going to make it back this year, as he stated last week that the shoulder isn't near to 100% healthy, and there are only 2 meaningless games left for the team. Jamie Martin took back over under center this past Sunday when rookie Ryan Fitzpatrick struggled vs. Philadelphia.

QB Jay Fiedler - NYJ

Fiedler is done for the season after having surgery to repair his injured shoulder.

QB Gus Frerotte - MIA

Frerotte aggravated his index finger injury on his throwing hand during the game on Sunday - the severity of the re-injury isn't currently known. Sage Rosenfels will fill in for Frerotte if the injury is serious. "I just keep hurting it and it just won't heal while we're still in season." said Frerotte after the game.

QB Byron Leftwich - JAX

Leftwich's ankle injury cost him another game on Sunday, as expected (listed as out on Friday).

QB J.P. Losman - BUF

Losman's shoulder injury kept him on the sidelines this past week (he was listed as questionable to play on Friday's injury report).

QB Josh McCown - ARI

McCown was suffering from the flu when called on to sub for Warner, and could only stay in the game briefly - he should be ready to start next week, hopefully, as Warner is lost for the season due to the knee injury he suffered on Sunday.

QB Chris Simms - TB

Simms aggravated his sprained left thumb (he throws left handed) during the game on Sunday - he had to switch to holding his right hand to the top side when he's under center because receiving the snap in his left hand was causing him problems with the digit. He'll be evaluated further this week to make sure his throwing hand (left) is functional - right now, the team expects him to go during week 16.

QB Kurt Warner - ARI

Warner injured the MCL in his right knee and is out for the season. Right now, we expect Josh McCown to step in for the final 2 games of the season, but coach Green hasn't been reluctant to give McCown the quick hook if he struggles.


Running Back

RB Rich Alexis - JAX

Alexis' sore groin kept him out of the game on Sunday (he was listed as doubtful on Friday).

RB Kevan Barlow - SF

Barlow missed the game on Sunday as expected (knee, out on Friday's injury report).

RB Chris Brown - TEN

Brown suffered a shoulder injury during the game on Sunday - the severity of the injury isn't currently known. Brown will be evaluated further as the week goes along. The team will probably list him as "questionable" on Wednesday's injury report, as that's Tennessee's all-purpose injury designation for anything less than a season-ending injury.

RB Ronnie Brown - MIA

Brown tweaked his left knee during the game on Sunday, and seemed to be slowed by the injury. He was spelled by Ricky Williams, who handled the extra work with no problem. After the game, Brown said that the injury was minor.

RB Domanick Davis - HOU

Davis was unable to play on Sunday due to his injured knee. His status for the next game will be evaluated as the week goes along. In Davis' absence, Jonathan Wells helped power the team to a rare victory with some strong running.

RB Stephen Davis - CAR

Davis was placed on IR due to problems with his surgically repaired knee, and will not play for the Panthers again this season.

RB Heath Evans - NE

Evans' sore shoulder sidelined him again on Sunday.

RB Travis Henry - TEN

Henry was unable to play on Sunday due to his injured ankle (he was listed as questionable to play on Friday's injury report).

RB Brad Hoover - CAR

Hoover reported aggravating a right calf injury during the game on Sunday, but didn't think it would become a serious problem for him. He'll be evaluated further as the week goes along.

RB Steven Jackson - STL

Jackson suffered a hip pointer during the game on Sunday, and gave way to Marshall Faulk/Arlen Harris later in the game - Jackson will be evaluated further as the week goes along. The injury isn't considered serious at this time.

RB Bryan Johnson - CHI

Johnson's bad back kept him out of the game on Sunday (listed as out on Friday).

RB Kyle Johnson - DEN

Johnson suffered a mild concussion during the game on Saturday, but he's expected to be fine for the next game. He'll be evaluated further as the week goes along.

RB Greg Jones - JAX

RB Kevin Jones - DET

Jones was inactive on Sunday due to his injured elbow (he was listed as questionable to play on Friday's injury report).

RB Lamont Jordan - OAK

There are reports that LaMont Jordan suffered a toe injury early during the game on Sunday, but he had his best game of the year rushing the football despite the reported problem with the toe. Stay tuned as the team evaluates his status this week.

RB Curtis Martin - NYJ

Martin is done for the season after having surgery to remove bone chips embedded in his knee cartilage and to clean up loose bodies in his knee.

RB Willis McGahee - BUF

McGahee banged up his left arm and shoulder during the game on Saturday, but stayed in the action - he'll be evaluated further this week.

Smith was sidelined on Sunday due to his injured hamstring (he was listed as questionable to play on Friday's injury report).

RB LaDainian Tomlinson - SD

Tomlinson aggravated his injured ribs during the game on Sunday, and finished the day watching from the sidelines as Michael Turner played well in relief of Tomlinson. Initially, the team is downplaying the aggravation and seem to believe Tomlinson will be able to play during week 16.

RB Ricky Williams - MIA

Williams tweaked an ankle during the game on Sunday, but stayed in the action and was productive.

RB Shaud Williams - BUF

Williams got the wind knocked out late in the game on Saturday, but wasn't seriously injured.

Drummond was inactive on Sunday due to his injured knee (he was listed as questionable to play on Friday's injury report).

WR Joe Horn - NO

Horn tweaked his previously injured hamstring during the game on Sunday, but coach Haslett indicated after the game that Horn is O.K. Keep an eye on his practice status this week - the same hamstring was injured earlier this year and cost Horn most of 4 games.

WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh - CIN

Houshmandzadeh injured his ankle/foot during the game vs. Detroit - at first glance, the injury doesn't look too serious, and Houshmandzadeh is vowing to play in next week's contest.

WR Brandon Lloyd - SF

Lloyd suffered a sprained neck during the game on Sunday - his status for the next game is not currently known.

WR Muhsin Muhammad - CHI

Muhammad limped off the field during the Sunday night game, with some sort of leg injury - the Chicago press is calling the problem cramps, caused by the cold weather.
