It's game day in Week 5 of the 2012 NFL season, and there is an abundance of injury situations worth monitoring. 

The injury bug has stung the New York Giants receiving corps, and Drew Brees will be without one of his favorite slot options against the San Diego Chargers.  

As is the case in every matchup in the NFL, injuries will certainly play a factor today. 

To stay in touch with it all, here you'll get the latest news on every injury along with each team's inactive list when it's released. 


Note: List of inactives are courtesy of 


Hakeem Nicks, WR, New York Giants

Status: OUT

This news broke earlier this week by a multitude of New York Giants reporters, but he isn't the only wideout who won't play for the G-Men. 

Nicks is still dealing with feet and knee injuries. 


Ramses Barden, WR, New York Giants

Status: OUT

According to, the 6'6'' Barden won't play against the Cleveland Browns due to a concussion he suffered against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4. 


Lance Moore, WR, New Orleans Saints

Status: OUT

New Orleans Saints beat writer Mike Triplett disseminated this news via Twitter. Moore won't play against Norv Turner's group due to a hamstring injury. 


Greg Jennings, WR, Green Bay Packers 

Status: OUT 

Like Nicks, Jennings was ruled out earlier this week by the Packers. His groin injury is still nagging him. Luckily for Green Bay, they face a rather porous Colts secondary. 


Kenny Britt, WR, Tennessee Titans 

Status: Questionable

Britt didn't practice all week, but the team hopes he can get on the field for the battle against the Vikings in Minnesota. Usually, when guys can't go during the week, it's a bad sign for Sunday.
