Week 15: Injury Updates

QB Jeff Garcia: Garcia is questionable and may not start. If he cannot go, QB Luke McCown would get the start. I do not recommend either of them against the Falcons. UPDATE 12/15/08: Garcia has been ruled out. QB Brian Griese will get the start.

QB Gus Frerotte: Frerotte (back) is doubtful. If he cannot go, QB Tavaris Jackson will get the start. Avoid him. Even against the Cardinals.

QB Matt Hasselbeck: Hasselbeck is out this week. QB Seneca Wallace will get another start. If you are desperate, he might do well against the Rams.

RB Brandon Jacobs: Jacobs (knee) is out this week. Look for RB Ahmad Bradshaw and RB Derrick Ward to get more work. Both have a pretty good matchup against the Cowboys.

UPDATE 12/15/08: RB Reggie Bush: Bush (knee) will undergo an MRI on his knee and may miss the rest of the season. With Bush out, expect RB Pierre Thomas to get more carries and perform pretty well.

RB Fred Taylor: Taylor (hand) is on IR. RB Maurice Jones-Drew will get all the carries.

RB Frank Gore: Gore (ankle) will not play this weekend. RB Deshaun Foster will get the start.

RB Marion Barber: Barber (toe) is listed as probable this week. But even if he does play, he will likely split carries with RB Tashard Choice, who looked good last week against Pittsburgh.

RB Ray Rice: Rice (shin) is doubtful. So look for RB Willis McGahee and RB Le’Ron McClain to get more work.

RB LenDale White: White missed two straight practices this week. His status for the game against the Texans is unclear. If he cannot go, expect RB Chris Johnson to have a big game.

RB Joseph Addai: Addai (shoulder) is questionable this week. I expect RB Dominic Rhodes, who has been playing well, to get more work. He has a very good matchup. UPDATE 12/15/08: Addai plans to dress for the game, but I expect Rhodes to get nearly all the carries, still.

    Yeah, sorry. I wrote that post at about 1 in the morning on Saturday night, just trying to give anyone who reads an update. Bush clearly played Thursday. Sorry for the confusion.
