Week 2 Early Injury Report


Quarterback

QB Kyle Boller - BAL

Kyle Boller suffered an foot/ankle injury during the game Sunday night, and had to be helped off the field. Anthony Wright took over for the hobbled player. The severity of the injury is being determined, but it didn't look minor in the moments after the injury. After the game, Coach Billick characterized the injury as "severe turf toe" on the right foot. Boller said the injury was concerning because the injury happened on his "plant foot" - there is no timetable for Boller's return at this point.

QB Jeff Garcia - DET

Garcia missed the game on Sunday as expected (leg/ankle, out).

QB Rex Grossman - CHI

QB Rex Grossman missed the game on Sunday as expected, due to his ankle injury.

QB Matt Hasselbeck - SEA

QB Patrick Ramsey - WAS

Ramsey was clotheslined during the game on Sunday, and was knocked out of the game with what was later diagnosed as a neck strain -- no word as of Sunday night whether he'll play in next weeek's game.


Running Back

RB Mike Anderson - DEN

RB Jerome Bettis - PIT

Bettis missed the game on Sunday as expected, (calf, out on Friday).

RB James Hodgins - ARI

Hodgins, the teams' starting FB, tore an ACL during the game vs. the Giants and is lost for the season. FB Obafemi Ayanbedejo stepped into Hodgins' role during the game and is the likely new starting FB in Arizona.

RB Jamal Lewis - BAL

Lewis broke a finger on his left hand during the game on Sunday night, but does not expect the injury to keep him out of the team's next game vs. Tennessee.

RB Mewelde Moore - MIN

Moore suffered a minor injury during a special teams play when he was leg-whipped. The player insisted the injury was "nothing" after the game.

RB Dominic Rhodes - IND

Rhodes missed the game on Sunday due to a foot injury (doubtful on Friday's injury report).

RB Alan Ricard - BAL

Although Ricard did not appear on the injury report, the Baltimore Sun indicated on Monday that his lack of playing time was due to the calf injury that limited Ricard during pre-season.

RB Tony Richardson - KC

Richardson left the game vs. the Jets with what is currently being described as a mild knee sprain. The injury will be evaluated further as the week progresses.

RB Cory Schlesinger - DET

Schlesinger missed the game on Sunday as expected (broken leg, out).

RB Duce Staley - PIT

Staley missed the game on Sunday due to his injured/repaired knee, as expected (doubtful on Friday's injury report). Willie Parker gained over 200 yards in his first NFL start, and is expected to be the starter again next week, too.

RB Lee Suggs - CLE

Suggs missed the game on Sunday after being listed as doubtful on Friday (injured ankle).

RB Kenny Watson - CIN

WR Devard Darling - BAL

Darling missed the game on Sunday night, as expected (quadriceps, out on Friday's injury report).

WR Robert Ferguson - GB

Ferguson was sidelined for chunks of the game vs. Detroit due to leg cramps. He figures to become a starter for the Packers now that Javon Walker is feared lost for the season.

WR Az-zahir Hakim - NO

Hakim aggravated his hamstring injury on Sunday and was forced to the sidelines. He has struggled to stay on the field during recent weeks due to the ongoing hamstring problem.

WR Cortez Hankton - JAX

Hankton was inactive for the game on Sunday due to his ankle injury (out on Friday's injury report). He had surgery on the ankle last Friday, and is expected to be sidelined for several weeks.

WR Vincent Jackson - SD

Jacobs was listed as questionable on Friday due to a toe injury, and was inactive for the game vs. Chicago.

WR Chad Johnson - CIN

Chad Johnson was briefly sidelined by leg cramps during the game, but returned to action after receiving fluids intravenously.

WR Johnnie Morton - SF

Morton suffered a concussion during the game vs. the Rams. He expects to play next week, but concussions are tricky -- sometimes it takes days for the after-effects to show up. If you have Morton on your roster, check his status later in the week. Coach Nolan indicated after the game that he expects Morton back for next week's game.

WR Terrence Murphy - GB

Murphy was inactive on Sunday after being listed as probable on Friday's injury report (knee).

WR Jamaar Taylor - NYG

Taylor was inactive on Sunday due to his injured groin (doubtful on Friday's injury report).

WR Javon Walker - GB

Javon Walker landed awkwardly while making a catch in the game vs. Detroit and twisted his left leg. The severity of the injury looks very grave as of Sunday night, when coach Sherman revealed that Walker had an ACL injury -- it may be that Walker has played his last snap of 2005. He is definitely out for many weeks, at the minimum.

WR Javon Walker - GB

On Monday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that the injury is a torn ACL (an MRI is scheduled to determine the full extent of the damage) and that Walker is lost for the season (up to 12 months). The team confirmed on Monday that surgery will be required after the swelling subsides, and an 8-12 month rehabilitation will then follow.


Tight End

TE Mark Bruener - HOU

TE Dallas Clark - IND

Clark missed the Sunday night game due to after-effects of a concussion (questionable on Friday's injury report).

TE Ernie Conwell - NO

Conwell was sidelined in the third quarter after he was sanwiched by 2 Panthers while going for the ball. He was helped off the field and didn't get back in the game. He definitely suffered a dislocated jaw, but seemed OK after the game. Conwell may have also suffered a slight concussion on the hit. His status will be updated later in the week.

TE Tim Euhus - BUF

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

TE Shad Meier - NO

Meier was sidelined on Sunday due to his bad knee (out on Friday's injury report).

TE Aaron Shea - CLE

Shea was listed as questionable on Friday due to his injured shoulder, and was inactive for the game on Sunday.

TE Jeremy Shockey - NYG

Shockey tweaked his ankle during the game vs. Arizona - the injury is considered minor as of Sunday night.


Kicker

PK John Hall - WAS

Hall strained his quadriceps muscle on his final kick of the game -- he may not be available for the Redskins' next game. The team refused to speculate when Hall would return. Said head trainer Bubba Tyer ""It's not good, We know from his history with it that it's not good." A similar injury ruined Halls' 2004 campaign.

PK Jason Hanson - DET

PK Jason Hanson injured himself on a kickoff during the first half. Hanson visibly limped after grasping at the back of his leg after the kick. Thereafter, Hanson converted a short extra point and a very short (21-yard) field goal, but the team was clearly taking it easy with him during the game. He'll be evaluated further as the week goes along -- Hanson owners will want to keep an eye on his status on the late-week injury reports issued by the NFL.
