Week 8: Monday Injury Updates

Here is some info on guys who got injured this weekend. Other than Reggie Bush, there were not any big-names that went down.

QB Tony Romo (DAL): Romo (finger) did not play this weekend, despite reports that he would. Advice: Brad Johnson looked awful, so the Cowboys may try to hurry Romo back into the lineup. Until he is back, TO, Roy Williams, and Witten all drop in value.

QB Brodie Croyle (KC): Croyle (knee) will miss the rest of the year. Advice: Damon Huard will step in for Croyle, which actually bumps up the value of guys like TE Tony Gonzalez and WR Dwayne Bowe. However, keep an eye on Huard, who apparently injured his thumb during the game.

RB Reggie Bush (NO): Bush (knee) will miss 4-6 weeks with a torn miniscus. Advice: With Bush out, look for RB Deuce McAllister and RB Pierre Thomas to get more reps.

RB Steven Jackson (STL): Jackson (thigh) was injured during the game against the Cowboys, although he still put up 160 yards. Advice: It sounds like it is just a thigh bruise, although we will have to await the results of the MRI. I suspect he will be fine.

RB Laurence Maroney (NE): Maroney (shoulder) was placed on IR. Advice: Maroney will miss the rest of the season, meaning LaMont Jordan and Sammy Morris will continue to be the featured backs in NE. Make sure Maroney is not in your lineup tonight against the Broncos (hopefully you are not desperate enough to need him anyway).

WR Marques Colston (NO): Colston (thumb) played for the first time since week 1 but did not have a catch. Advice: Colston dropped a few balls, so it seems like his thumb is not 100% healthy and/or he is a little rusty. But do not worry. He should be back to normal soon enough.

TE Jeremy Shockey (NO): Shockey (sports hernia) played for the first time in a few weeks, but may have aggravated his injury. Advice: Shockey played well, but it is unclear if he will be ready to play again next week. Check back for status updates.
