Week 4: Injury Updates

QB Carson Palmer (CIN): Palmer did not start this weekend due to a sore elbow, which was somewhat of a surprise. And now it appears that his injury might be serious.

QB Aaron Rodgers (GB): Rodgers sprained his shoulder scrambling (which he does way too much). He did throw a TD after hurting his shoulder, but also said that it was very painful. I expect him to play on Sunday.

RB Brian Westbrook (PHI): Westbrook did not play last night against the Bears. He was a game-time decision, though, so he may be ready to go this week against the Redskins. If not, Correll Buckhalter will likely start in his place.

RB Darren McFadden (OAK): Despite what McFadden says, his toe is clearly bothering him. For the second straight game, Michael Bush seemed like the better option at RB. I have never been very high on McFadden, and his lingering toe injury makes me like him even less.

RB Willis McGahee (BAL): McGahee had an eye injury coming into the game, then injured his chest, but returned only to leave again with an unspecified injury. Le’Ron McClain carried the load for the rest of the game, putting up 63 yards and a TD on 16 carries. Even if McGahee is healthy, it is safe to say that McClain will get some touches and likely the goal line carries.

RB Rashard Mendenhall (PIT): Rookie RB Rashard Mendenhall broke a bone in his shoulder on MNF and is out for the season. The Steelers expect Willie Parker to be back next week, but if he is not 100% healthy, add RB Mewelde Moore.

WR Anquan Boldin (ARI): Boldin was knocked unconscious towards the end of the game on Sunday. What initially looked like a much worse injury may end up being a concussion. It is unclear whether he will be ready for next week.
