Week 15: injury Update

Here are some key injuries as you head into the final stretch of the season:

QB Gus Frerotte: Frerotte (back) missed the second half against the Lions. Advice: Frerotte’s status for this weekend is unclear. If he cannot go, QB Tavaris Jackson will start in his place. I would avoid both.

RB Marion Barber: Barber (toe, calf) missed last week’s game against Pittsburgh and his status for this week is unclear. Advice: It came out recently that it was Barber’s calf, not his toe, was what kept him out of the Pittsburgh game. And now Cowboy’s owner Jerry Jones is calling Barber out in the media for not playing. Plus, RB Tashard Choice played surprisingly well against a very tough defense. This will be interesting to watch.

RB Brandon Jacobs: Jacobs (knee) is expected to be active this week. Advice: Jacobs injured his knee against the Eagles, but it is not considered serious and he should be ready to go in week 15.

RB Frank Gore: Gore (ankle) missed some time last week but should be ready this week. Advice: Do not worry, but you might want to grab RB Deshaun Foster just in case.

RB Willie Parker: Parker (knee, shoulder) was active against Dallas. Advice: Parker got 15 touches, but RB Mewelde Moore got 9 and RB Gary Russell got 4.  The Steelers are going to stick with Parker, but it is clear that the other guys are going to be involved, as well.

RB Peyton Hillis: Hillis (hamstring) is on IR and will miss the rest of the year. Advice: As quickly as he rose to fantasy stardom, he has disappeared. Now RB Tatum Bell will get his shot in the Denver backfield.

WR Matt Jomes: Jones is not injured, but he has (finally) been suspended by the NFL for the last three games of the year. Advice: He is done. Cut him.
