Jake Delhomme (Cleveland Browns) Status - Out

Delhomme re-aggravated his ankle sprain last week. Colt McCoy is the guy for the Browns today.

Seneca Wallace (Cleveland Browns) Status - Out

Wallace sprained his ankle last week and will not play today. See above.

Matthew Stafford (Detroit Lions) Status - Questionable

Stafford is listed as questionable, but is likely two weeks away from returning. Look elsewhere this week.

Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers) Status - Probable

Rodgers was iffy for this week after suffering a concussion in overtime against Washington, but it looks like he'll be playing today. The Dolphins secondary isn't spectacular, so trust him as usual.

Brett Favre (Minnesota Vikings) Status - Questionable

Favre is listed as a game-time decision today against the Cowboys. While he hasn't been great this season, we like his situation with Randy Moss involved. If he plays, feel comfortable with Favre.

Tom Brady (New England Patriots) Status - Probable

Brady is playing this week. Don't worry about it.

Drew Brees (New Orleans Saints) Status - Probable

Brees will be playing as usual. With the uncertainty in the Saints running game, don't consider benching Brees, despite a sub-par start to the season.

Michael Vick (Philadelphia Eagles) Status - Questionable

Vick's ribs are reportedly feeling better, but Kevin Kolb is starting today. Vick could suit up, but don't expect much out of him at all. Don't start him.

Donovan McNabb (Washington Redskins) Status - Questionable

He's listed as questionable with a hamstring injury, but he'll be playing against the Colts.


Running Backs

Ray Rice (Baltimore Ravens) Status - Probable

Rice looked fully recovered from his knee injury last week, so feel comfortable starting him against New England today.

Peyton Hillis (Cleveland Browns) Status - Questionable

Hillis is questionable with a thigh injury this week, but, playing against the Steelers, it's not a great matchup to begin with. Look elsewhere for production this week.

Knowshon Moreno (Denver Broncos) Status - Questionable

Moreno practiced on Thursday and Friday, and could be playing today against the Jets. Stay tuned for updates.

Jahvid Best (Detroit Lions) Status - Probable

Best played last week, and should be fine to play again this week.

Arian Foster (Houston Texans) Status - Probable

Foster wasn't great last week, but, despite a minor knee injury, he'll be good to go against the Chiefs.

Joseph Addai (Indianapolis Colts) Status - Questionable

Addai has a neck injury, but he's expected to play against the Redskins. While he's still not completely healthy, he may not be as productive today as you'd like from a running back. Use him with caution.

Donald Brown (Indianapolis Colts) Status - Out

Brown didn't travel with the team to Washington.

Maurice Jones-Drew (Jacksonville Jaguars) Status - Probable

MJD is fine. Use him.

Fred Taylor (New England Patriots) Status - Out

Taylor is out for today's game against the Ravens with a toe injury.

Pierre Thomas (New Orleans Saints) Status - Out

Pierre Thomas isn't playing this week with his ankle injury. Look to Ladell Betts or Chris Ivory as the primary replacements.

Darren McFadden (Oakland Raiders) Status - Questionable

McFadden might be ready to play today, but don't be surprised to see him used as the backup to Michael Bush.

LeSean McCoy (Philadelphia Eagles) Status - Probable

McCoy's rib still isn't 100 percent, but, with the way he looked last week, don't be too worried about him.

Ryan Mathews (San Diego Chargers) Status - Probable

Mathews will play today, and he's expected to get more carries than Mike Tolbert. Tolbert still has flex value, though.

Chris Johnson (Tennessee Titans) Status - Probable

He'll play Monday night.

Clinton Portis (Washington Redskins) Status - Out

Yep, still out.

Wide Receivers

Dez Bryant (Dallas Cowboys) Status - Questionable

He's listed as questionable, but don't be surprised to see him in the lineup against the Vikings. However, since he's still the No. 3 receiver, temper your expectations.

Demaryius Thomas (Denver Broncos) Status - Questionable

Thomas is listed as questionable with a concussion, but since he hasn't been a giant part of the Broncos passing attack on a consistent basis, don't expect much from him today.

Calvin Johnson (Detroit Lions) Status - Questionable

Johnson is said to be a game-time decision with a shoulder and a knee injury. Stay tuned.

Donald Driver (Green Bay Packers) Status - Probable

Don't expect the quad injury to keep Driver out of action today.

Andre Johnson (Houston Texans) Status - Probable

Johnson's ankle looked much better last week, so expect him to be fine again today.

Jacoby Jones (Houston Texans) Status - Questionable

Jones still isn't completely healthy, and, as the Texans' No. 3 receiver, doesn't have great value to begin with.

Austin Collie (Indianapolis Colts) Status - Questionable

Collie's foot is listed as questionable again, but since he played last week, expect him to be fine to play today.

Pierre Garcon (Indianapolis Colts) Status - Questionable

Garcon played last week, and should be playing today.

Marques Colston (New Orleans Saints) Status - Probable

He'll play against Tampa.

Legedu Naanee (San Diego Chargers) Status - Doubtful

Naanee hasn't been particularly productive to this point anyway, and he isn't expected to play.

Mike Williams (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) Status - Questionable

Listed as questionable, but in a huge game for the Bucs against the Saints, expect him to be out there.
