Week 12: Monday Injury Report

QB Tony Romo (DAL): Romo (finger) saw his first action since breaking his finger about a month ago. Advice: Romo looked rusty, but was able to lead the Cowboys to a win over the Redskins. I think he might have to deal with his finger for the rest of the season, although he should start to get used to it — and thus become more effective — as the season goes on.

QB Kyle Orton (CHI): Orton (ankle) started against the Packers but was benched late in the game when it was out of reach. Advice: Orton was clearly limited by his ankle injry, and was seen hobbling around on the field. I do not expect him to return to form any time soon, so keep him on your bench for now.

RB Clinton Portis (WAS): Portis (knee) was surprisingly active against the Cowboys. Advice: Portis is one of the toughtest guys in the NFL and often plays through injuries, but I was surprised to see him out there on SNF. I have not seen any reports that indicate whether he aggracated his MCL sprain, though, so expect him to be ready to go next week.

RB Willis McGahee (BAL): McGahee (ankle) reaggravated his ankle injury this past weekend. Advice: McGahee has been struggling with injuries all year, which makes his backups — RB Ray Rice and RB Le’Ron McClaim — valuable commodities in most leagues. It is not clear how serious this injury is, but if McGahee misses any time or is limited, expect Rice to step in and perform pretty well.

RB Earnest Graham (TB): Graham (ankle) is expected to miss the remainder of the season. Advice: With Graham out, RB Warrick Dunn will take over as the main RB in Tampa Bay. Also, RB Cadillac Williams, who was recently removed from the PUP list, could see a few carries down the road.

RB Brandon Jacobs (NYG): Jacobs (knee) missed the second half of the Giants game with a sore knee. Advice: Jacobs is expected to have a “precautionary” MRI, but his injury is not expected to be serious. Check back for updates, though.

WR Donald Driver (GB): Driver (knee) hobbled off the field against the Bears, but later returned to the game. Advice: Coach Mike McCarthy said that Driver had an assortment of ailments, but none seem to serious, so expect him to be in the lineup next week against New Orleans.
