Week 9 Early Injury Report


Quarterback

QB Marc Bulger - STL

Bulger missed another game on Sunday due to his injured shoulder (doubtful on Friday's injury report). With a bye-week ahead in which to heal up, the team hopes Bulger can go in their next game.

QB Daunte Culpepper - MIN

Culpepper suffered another right knee injury on Sunday (he injured the knee originally during the season opener) Said coach Tice Sunday, "The quarterback doesn't appear to be in good shape. I'm not a doctor, but the initial tests are not good. It doesn't appear that it's going to be anything that we as Vikings will want to hear. Things happen that are devastating. This certainly, if it's as serious as it appears, is devastating to our football team."

Today, the team confirmed that Culpepper is lost for the season -- damage to the ACL, MCL and PCL was detected by an MRI, although the full extent of the damage isn't yet clear according to coach Tice "Well have to wait a couple of weeks for the swelling to go down and get prepared for surgery in the next few weeks. Its discouraging to us based on everything that has transpired to this point in the season."

If all three ligaments are severly damaged, Culpepper could be in for a very extended rehabilitation time-frame, but it is too early to say anything substantive regarding time-frame for a return to the field.

QB Trent Dilfer - CLE

Trent Dilfer reported memory loss after the game vs. Houston "I honestly don't remember that play (a sack). "I got my bell rung (on the sack). I know I was trying to get the ball out. I knew we couldn't take a sack." - obviously, Dilfer suffered some sort of head trauma - the team will evaluate him further as the week goes along.

QB Ken Dorsey - SF

Dorsey was knocked out of the game on Sunday by an ankle injury - Cody Pickett finished the game at QB while also playing on special teams. Dorsey was in a protective boot after the game and is doubtful to play in the next contest.

QB Rex Grossman - CHI

Grossman continues to be sidelined by his leg/ankle injuries.

QB Donovan McNabb - PHI

McNabb continues to play through his groin injury, but he is obviously struggling to be effective - he's been getting off to very poor starts for most of the first half of games during the last few weeks. This week he had 11 incompletions and an interception thrown over his first 12 passes during the first half.

QB Steve McNair - TEN

McNair briefly left the game on Sunday due to back spasms, but returned to action without missing any offensive snaps.

QB Alex Smith - SF

Smith missed the game on Sunday due to his injured ankle (questionable on Friday's injury report). His backup Ken Dorsey was also knocked out of the game, so QB/Special Teamer Cody Pickett finished the game under center on Sunday.


Running Back

RB Stephen Davis - CAR

Davis was sidelined briefly due to tweaking his knee, but he returned to action and seemed fine despite the scare (he was hit on his surgically repaired knee).

RB Corey Dillon - NE

Dillon, pressed back into service due to Patrick Pass' hamstring injury, said he was "Banged up, as usual." after the game. His sore ankle seemed to hold up to the pounding he took after relieving Pass on Sunday.

RB Kevin Faulk - NE

Faulk continues to be sidelined by his foot injury (out on Friday's injury report).

RB Troy Fleming - TEN

Fleming missed another game on Sunday due to hi injured ankle (questionable on Friday's injury report).

RB Chris Hetherington - SF

Hetherington is questionable to play next week due to a pulled hamstring suffered on Sunday.

RB Priest Holmes - KC

Holmes suffered a head injury during the game (the team is calling it a mild head trauma - it looked like a slight concussion, although the team insists that Holmes never lost consciousness) - he did not return to action on Sunday but is expected to be OK for the team's next game.

RB Terry Jackson - SF

Jackson is questionable to play next week due to hip and knee injuries suffered during the game on Sunday.

RB Julius Jones - DAL

Jones remains sidelined due to his bum ankle (questionable on Friday's injury report), and may be sitting himself out of the lineup. Marion Barber the III has been impressive in his chances, and coach Parcells has been generous with heaping praise on Barber. Jones owners should be feeling nervous about this developing situation...

RB Thomas Jones - CHI

Jones suffered bruised ribs near the end of the game vs. Detroit. He was taped up but stayed on the sidelines - the injury does not appear very serious at this time, though.

RB Lamont Jordan - OAK

Jordan tweaked his left ankle early in the game, took a short rest on the sidelines, and then returned to action. The injury is not considered serious at this time.

RB Harold Morrow - ARI

Morrow missed the game on Sunday due to his injured ankle, despite being listed probable on Friday's injury report.

RB Damien Nash - TEN

Nash missed the game on Sunday due to his injured hamstring (questionable on Friday's injury report).

RB Patrick Pass - NE

Pass was forced out of the game by a very painful hamstring injury - he had started the game and was running well at the time of his injury. The severity of the pull has not been determined yet, but it didn't look minor at the moment the injury occurred.

RB Andrew Pinnock - SD

Pinnock suffered a shoulder and a calf injury during the game on Sunday - the severity of the injuries aren't currently known.

RB Paul Smith - DET

Smith suffered and ankle sprain during the game on Sunday - the severity of the sprain isn't currently known. He'll be evaluated further as the swelling goes down.

RB Lee Suggs - CLE

Sugg's injured thumb is keeping him on the sidelines - he was listed as out again on Friday.

RB Fred Taylor - JAX

Taylor had a big day in spite of the bone bruise in his ankle, but he admitted after the game that he wasn't 100%. "There were some cuts out there that I could have made that I couldn't really get to because of my ankle."


Wide Receiver

WR Otis Amey - SF

Amey missed the game on Sunday due to his injured ankle (doubtful on Friday's injury report).

WR Arnaz Battle - SF

Bennett missed another game on Sunday as he continues to rehab his thumb after corrective surgery (out on Friday's injury report).

WR Bernard Berrian - CHI

Berrian missed the game on Sunday due to his injured right thumb, as expected (out on Friday's injury report). He had surgery to correct a tendon problem with the digit, and is expected to miss 5-7 weeks. He may be headed for IR, but the injury to Mark Bradley on Sunday may change Berrian's status. In any case, Berrian won't be playing for several weeks.

WR Anquan Boldin - ARI

Boldin twisted his right knee during the third quarter on Sunday and did not return to action - the injury is to the same knee he injured during training camp last year. Boldin had surgery on a torn meniscus and missed the first six games due to the procedure/rehab. A MRI is scheduled for today to further diagnose the injury. Said coach Green "It's probably a menicus. Hopefully, it's not a bad tear.".

WR Mark Bradley - CHI

Bradley suffered a right knee injury on Sunday - he'll be evaluated further on Monday as the swelling goes down. Right now, the team is calling it a "sprain", but that's just a preliminary diagnosis, subject to revision.

WR Troy Brown - NE

Brown missed the game on Sunday due to his injured foot (questionable on Friday's injury report).

WR Isaac Bruce - STL

Bruce remained on the sidelines this week thanks to his ongoing turf toe injury (doubtful on Friday). The team hopes to have him back in the lineup after their upcoming bye-week.

WR Tyrone Calico - TEN

Calico injured his right calf during the game on Sunday and watched the second half in street clothes. The Titans are down to 2 healthy WRs right now, rookies Roydell Williams and Courtney Roby. It's getting very ugly among the Titan receiving corps as the injuries mount ever higher (Drew Bennett and Brandon Jones were inactive on Sunday due to their injuries.)

WR Patrick Crayton - DAL

Crayton missed the game on Sunday due to his injured ankle, as expected (out on Friday's injury report).

WR Chad Johnson - CIN

Johnson tweaked a shoulder during the game on Sunday, but returned to action and didn't show any ill effects from the incident.

WR Brandon Jones - TEN

Jones missed the game on Sunday due to his injured knee. The Titans are down to 2 healthy receivers right now, rookies Roydell Williams and Courtney Roby.

WR Terrell Owens - PHI

Owens, though not listed on the post-game injury report, was seen limping after the game and he had one of his hamstrings checked by trainers. Keep an eye on this one.

WR Samie Parker - KC

WR David Tyree - NYG

TE David Martin - GB
