It is already Week 11 of the 2012 regular season, and we are heading into the home-stretch of what has been an amazing season of NFL football.
There are many top superstars coming into Week 11 that are banged up, and fantasy-football owners must start formulating backup plans for the potential inactives and stars on bye weeks.
We have all the news you need for your fantasy team or your favorite NFL squad, so keep it here for all the latest updates as they break.
Jay Cutler, QB, Chicago Bears
After suffering a concussion in Week 10, Chicago Bears star QB Jay Cutler will not be under center for the team’s Monday night meeting with the San Francisco 49ers. Jason Campbell will start in his place, according to the Bears' official Twitter.
Owen Daniels, TE, Houston Texans
Daniels is dealing with a back/hip injury that cost him the team's win over the Chicago Bears. He's practiced some this week and is making progress, as noted by Fox Houston's Mark Berman, and will be considered a game-time decision on Sunday.
Fred Jackson, RB, Buffalo Bills
With the Buffalo Bills on a short week—playing the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night Football—star running back Fred Jackson’s concussion will not allow him to play, according to the Bills official Twitter account.
Alex Smith, QB, San Francisco 49ers
According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, Smith will not play Monday night after failing to gain clearance from a neurologist.
Jordy Nelson, WR, Green Bay Packers
After leaving the Green Bay Packers Week 9 game with an injured ankle and capitalizing on the Week 10 bye, star wide receiver Jordy Nelson returned to practice Monday and looks good to start Sunday’s matchup against the Detroit Lions, according to Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Michael Vick, QB, Philadelphia Eagles
Unfortunately for Vick, he has still yet to recover very much at all from his concussion and will indeed ride the pine in Week 11 when the Eagles take on the NFC East rival Washington Redskins. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport broke the news.
Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Pittsburgh Steelers
On Friday, the Baltimore Ravens' official Twitter confirmed the worst for the Pittsburgh QB, who is suffering from a rib injury in addition to an ailing shoulder. Steelers WR Antonio Brown will also miss the Sunday night AFC North battle.
