Week 5 Early Injury Report


Quarterback

QB Kyle Boller - BAL

Boller was sidelined on Sunday, as expected (foot injury, out).

QB Daunte Culpepper - MIN

According to the Star-Tribune, Culpepper has been playing through a nagging right knee injury that is bothering his mechanics and mobility (Culpepper was not on the injury report last week).

QB Jay Fiedler - NYJ

Fiedler missed the game on Sunday, as expected (shoulder, out). His dislocated shoulder was strapped down and stiffened with a metal brace during the game on Sunday.

QB Jeff Garcia - DET

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

QB Donovan McNabb - PHI

McNabb started and played well despite his array of injuries - his 3rd straight 300+ passing yard performance in a row.

QB Chad Pennington - NYJ

Pennington was sidelined on Sunday, as expected (right shoulder, out).

QB Michael Vick - ATL

Vick was knocked out of the game with a sprained right knee ligament and did not return to action as the Falcons had a big lead. Sunday, coach Jim Mora said the injury "was not serious. I don't think we need to worry about it". He'll have an MRI Monday and Vick said he expects to be ready for next week. "I feel fine. I just tweaked it a little bit. I'm going to get an MRI and find out what the deal is, but it feels good," said Vick.

He tried to get back in the game: "I was trying to, but we were taking precautions, you know. We wanted to go get the x-rays and make sure everything was all right. We already had a good cushion, a nice lead, so we made the decision just to keep me on the sideline."

On Monday, a MRI confirmed the knee is not damaged - Vick looks to be ok and is expected to practice as usual this week - he will start vs New England, unless he suffers some sort of setback that is not expected.

QB Kurt Warner - ARI

Warner was inactive on Sunday, as expected (groin, out on Friday's injury report).


Running Back

RB B.J. Askew - NYJ

Askew was out on Sunday as expected (ankle).

RB Kevin Faulk - NE

Faulk missed the game on Sunday due to his foot injury, as expected (out on Friday). ESPN reported that the injury is actually a broken leg and that Faulk may be out for 8 weeks (the Patriots are typically very closed-mouthed about injuries, so no confirmation from the team on this yet).

RB James Jackson - ARI

Jackson was inactive on Sunday due to his injured hamstring (questionable on Friday's injury report).

RB Edgerrin James - IND

James played through a stomach ailment on Sunday "My stomach was hurting all day," he said. "It was a rough one." The condition is not considered serious at this time.

RB Kevin Jones - DET

Jones missed time during the game on Sunday due to being poked in the left eye. The injury is not considered serious as of Monday morning - he should start and play as usual this week. Hopefully his cornea wasn't scratched in the incident.

RB Curtis Martin - NYJ

Martin appeared to tweak the right knee that he sprained in week 1 this past Sunday, and sat out a few downs before returning to action. He stated after the game that he was "fine", but 13/30/0 is far from our definition of "fine". The injury seems minor, though. Much of Martin's woes can be attributed to a strong Raven defense that didn't respect the pass.

RB Willis McGahee - BUF

McGahee was spotted icing his shoulder after the game on Sunday, but no official word about an injury has been heard. Keep an eye on his status on the injury reports later this week - we don't think it's a big deal, but it bears noting.

RB James Mungro - IND

Mungro missed the game on Sunday, as expected (knee, out on Friday).

RB Dominic Rhodes - IND

Rhodes missed the game on Sunday due to his injured shoulder (doubtful on Friday).

RB Cory Schlesinger - DET

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

RB Darren Sproles - SD

Sproles injured his foot/ankle during the win over the Patriots. He'll be evaluated further as the week goes along.

RB Aaron Stecker - NO

Stecker missed the game again this week due to his bum ankle (questionable on Friday's injury report).

RB Cadillac Williams - TB

Williams started play on Sunday despite his sore foot, but was knocked out of the contest in the early going with a hamstring injury that sidelined him for the majority of the game. The severity of the pull is under evaluation as of Sunday night, but initial indications are that the injury is mild. "Everything is OK. He had a mild hamstring." said Coach Gruden after the game. Williams stated "I felt something tweak. Those were tough yards. Every Sunday won't be perfect."

Gruden said the strong play of Michael Pittman was also a factor: "And the fact that Pittman was playing pretty well ... we chose to go another route today." Williams wanted to return to the game but it was the coach's call to keep him out. Said Williams, "I couldn't force my will on the coaches".

RB Moe Williams - MIN

Williams was sidelined on Sunday due to his injured knee (questionable on Friday's injury report).

Engram broke 2 ribs during the early going on Sunday, but stayed in the game for most of the contest, grabbing 106 yards worth of passes before exiting in the second half. He'll be treated and evaluated further as the week goes along.

WR Joey Galloway - TB

Galloway was briefly sidelined during the game due to leg cramps - the condition isn't considered serious.

WR Cortez Hankton - JAX

Hankton continues to miss games due to his ongoing rehabilitation of an ankle injury/surgery (out on Friday's injury report).

Offensive Line

T Jonas Jennings (shoulder) missed the game on Sunday after being listed as doubtful on Friday's injury report.

OL San Francisco 49ers - SF

C Jeremy Newberry was taken to the locker room for an x-ray of his leg (fibula) - results of the examination were not immediately available.

OL Cincinnati Bengals - CIN

C Eric Ghiaciuc missed the game on Sunday due to lingering effects from a stomach illness (probable on Friday). It was unfortunate for the team that Ghiaciuc was sidelined, as starting C Rich Braham and his backup Larry Moore both suffered knee injuries during the game and were unable to continue play. Obviously, the Bengals are now perilously thin at center - G Eric Steinbach had to fill in at the position to finish the game on Sunday. Braham returned to the sidelines despite his left knee injury, and expects to play next week. Moore, however, had to be carted off the field and was on crutches after the game - his knee injury appears serious.

But I'm OK now. I've got a little headache now, but it makes it a little easier when you win."

I don't know if that means on the football field, but as long as I can run after Little Man (Harrison's son), that's what's important."

Stay tuned, but it's clear Peterson is in the doghouse - he was told not to come to the team hotel during preparations for the game vs. the Rams...
