Week 1 Injury Report

So, it’s finally here. Week 1 of the NFL season. Which means it is time to stop bragging about how sweet your team is and try to figure out how to win your week 1 matchup. Hopefully you are not dealing with any injured players, but just in case you are, here is a rundown of who is injured and whether you can expect them to play.

QB Kurt Warner (ARI): Warner (hip) is old and has a crazy wife, but he will play in week 1.

QB Carson Palmer (CIN): Palmer (ankle) will play in week 1.

QB Kyle Orton (DEN): Orton (finger) is expected to start in week 1.

QB Matt Cassel (KC): Cassel’s (knee) status for week 1 is still unclear.

QB Matt Schaub (HOU): Schaub (ankle) will be in the lineup in week 1.

RB Maurice Jones-Drew (JAX): MJD (shin) has missed practice and his status for week 1 is unclear. But until we hear otherwise, I think he will be in the lineup. His touches may be limited though. So expect rookie RB Rashad Jennings and RB/FB Greg Jones to get some extra work.

RB Jonathan Stewart (CAR): Stewart’s (achilles) status for week 1 is in doubt. RB DeAngelo Williams should benefit greatly from this. Also, rookie RB Mike Goodson could get some extra work.

RB Brian Westbrook (PHI): Westbrook (knee, ankle) had 2 offseason surgeries, but is expected to be in the lineup in week 1.

RB Pierre Thomas (NO): Thomas’ (knee) status for week 1 is in doubt. Grab RB Mike Bell if he is available in your league. He should do well against DET.

RB Clinton Portis (WAS): Portis (ribs) is back at practice and will start at RB in week 1.

RB Reggie Bush (NO): Bush (knee) should play in week 1, but he is not 100%.

RB Knowshon Moreno (DEN): Moreno (knee) is on schedule to play in week 1. But I do not expect him to get a full load quite yet.

RB Beanie Wells (ARI): Wells (ankle) seems to be fully-recoverd from his ankle injury, but RB Tim Hightower is the starter as of now.

RB Marshawn Lynch (BUF): Lynch (suspension) will miss the first 3 games. RB Fred Jackson should see a majority of the touches in his absence.

RB Fred Jackson (BUF): Jackson (wrist) should be ready to go. RB Xavier Omon would get some touches if Jackson is not 100% healthy.

WR Greg Jennings (GB): Jennings (concussion) is ready to go in week 1.

WR Anquan Boldin (ARI): Boldin (hamstring) has missed practices recently, but I think he will be ready for week 1.

WR Terrell Owens (BUF): Owens’ (toe) is supposed to be ready and should be on the field this weekend.

WR Antonio Bryant (TB): Bryant (knee) is expected to be ready for week 1.

WR Donnie Avery (STL): Avery (foot) should be available for the week 1 game.

WR Chaz Schilens (OAK): Schilens (foot) will miss the first couple weeks of the season.

WR Nate Washington (TEN): Washington (hamstring) is expected to miss a week or 2.

WR Mike Sims-Walker (JAX): Sims-Walker (aknle) finally got on the field in the JAX preseason finale (and caught a TD). His status in the lineup is unclear, but he should be healthy enough to play.

WR Steve Breaston (ARI): Breaston (knee) is expected to be ready for week 1.

WR Michael Crabtree (SF): I have yet to confirm this, but I believe Crabtree must have hit his head very hard. Because the sh!t this guy is pulling is insane.

Did I miss anyone? I hope not. Post a comment if you have a question about a player that is not listed here and I will get back to you with an update…
