Read on for the full injury report, updated live as news breaks throughout Sunday morning.
Jake Delhomme (Cleveland Browns) Status – Doubtful
Delhomme has battled ankle issues just about all season long, and he isn’t expected to be ready to go against the Saints.
Seneca Wallace (Cleveland Browns) Status – Out
Wallace, also battling an ankle injury, will miss his second straight game.
David Garrard (Jacksonville Jaguars) Status – Out
Garrard suffered a concussion against Tennessee and will not play against KC on Sunday.
Trent Edwards (Jacksonville Jaguars) Status – Questionable
Edwards injured his thumb against the Titans, and it’s uncertain as to whether or not he’ll start.
Brett Favre (Minnesota Vikings) Status – Probable
#4 has ankle and elbow issues, but do you really think he’s going to miss this game at Lambeau? Me neither.
Tom Brady (New England Patriots) Status – Probable
Brady is listed as having a shoulder injury. He’ll play.
Drew Brees (New Orleans Saints) Status – Probable
We all know about Brees’ knee. We also all know that it won’t be enough to keep him out of action.
Jason Campbell (Oakland Raiders) Status – Questionable
Campbell injured his knee against the 49ers. Still no word on his true status.
Bruce Gradkowski (Oakland Raiders) Status – Questionable
Gradkowski has dinged up his throwing shoulder on more than one occasion this season, and I’d be surprised if he’s able to play against Denver.
Michael Vick (Philadelphia Eagles) Status – Questionable
Even if Vick is ready to play, Kevin Kolb is allegedly still the guy for the Eagles this week.
Vince Young (Tennessee Titans) Status – Questionable
Young has injuries to an ankle and a knee, and I wouldn’t expect him to go Sunday.
Kerry Collins (Tennessee Titans) Status – Probable
Amazing how many teams have injuries to two quarterbacks, isn’t it? He’ll start if Young can’t.
Ray Rice (Baltimore Ravens) Status – Probable
Rice, despite the ankle injury, has played in all six games thus far. Don’t expect that to change.
Peyton Hillis (Cleveland Browns) Status – Probable
Hillis played last week despite the thigh injury.
Pierre Thomas (New Orleans Saints) Status – Out
Thomas’ ankle still isn’t ready to go.
Julius Jones (New Orleans Saints) Status – Probable
Not sure how many carries he’ll see, but Jones is expected to play against Cleveland.
Darren McFadden (Oakland Raiders) Status – Questionable
He’s missed two straight games, but he’s apparently “70/30″ for playing Sunday.
LeSean McCoy (Philadelphia Eagles) Status – Probable
The rib hasn’t kept McCoy out of a game thus far.
Ryan Mathews (San Diego Chargers) Status – Probable
Mathews practiced fully Friday, and, with all the injuries in the Chargers’ passing attack, Mathews and Mike Tolbert could see lots of action against the Pats.
Chris Johnson (Tennessee Titans) Status – Probable
Steve Breaston (Arizona Cardinals) Status – Questionable
His status for Sunday is still uncertain.
Early Doucet (Arizona Cardinals) Status – Questionable
With a groin injury, we’re still not sure he’ll play.
Derrick Mason (Baltimore Ravens) Status – Probable
Despite ankle and finger issues, Mason practiced fully on Friday and is expected to play.
Steve Smith (Carolina Panthers) Status – Probable
Smith is reportedly ready to play, but with the uncertainty revolving around the Panthers’ QB situation, temper your expectations.
Joshua Cribbs (Cleveland Browns) Status – Probable
Cribbs was one of James Harrison’s victims last Sunday, but he’s expected to play.
Mohamed Massaquoi (Cleveland Browns) Status – Out
Massaquoi, Harrison’s other victim, wasn’t so lucky. He won’t play against the Saints.
Dez Bryant (Dallas Cowboys) Status – Probable
Bryant’s seemingly interminable ankle injury isn’t expected to keep him out of Monday night’s must-win against the Giants.
Eddie Royal (Denver Broncos) Status – Questionable
Royal was limited in Friday’s practice with a groin injury.
Donald Driver (Green Bay Packers) Status – Probable
Driver has an injured quad, but he’ll play.
Mike Sims-Walker (Jacksonville Jaguars) Status – Probable
He’ll likely play against the Chiefs despite an injured shoulder.
Percy Harvin (Minnesota Vikings) Status – Probable
Harvin’s hamstring isn’t expected to keep him out.
Julian Edelman (New England Patriots) Status – Questionable
Edelman is questionable against the Chargers with a concussion. His fantasy value is quite “questionable” as it is, anyway.
Hakeem Nicks (New York Giants) Status – Questionable
Nicks’ hamstring kept him out of practice Friday, but he’s expected to play against the Cowboys.
DeSean Jackson (Philadelphia Eagles) Status – Out
Jackson’s concussion as a result of the vicious hit by Dunta Robinson will keep him out this week.
Malcom Floyd (San Diego Chargers) Status – Doubtful
Floyd is one of several key cogs in the Chargers’ passing attack that likely won’t play.
Legedu Naanee (San Diego Chargers) Status – Doubtful
Naanee, too, is doubtful with a hamstring issue.
Buster Davis (San Diego Chargers) Status – Probable
His ribs might be hurt, but he kind of has to play, right?
Mardy Gilyard (St. Louis Rams) Status – Doubtful
The rookie’s hamstring likely means he’ll miss the game in Tampa.
Justin Gage (Tennessee Titans) Status – Doubtful
Awful lot of hamstring injuries for receivers going around these days. Value of Kenny Britt and Nate Washington rises if Gage is out.
Shawn Nelson (Buffalo Bills) Status – Probable
You probably aren’t depending on a Bills tight end to carry you in fantasy but if you are…lucky you, he’s probably playing.
Dante Rosario (Carolina Panthers) Status – Probable
Antonio Gates (San Diego Chargers) Status – Questionable
If Gates, Floyd, and Naanee are all out, Philip Rivers might not even bother to show up to play the Patriots.
Vernon Davis (San Francisco 49ers) Status – Probable
Expect Alex Smith’s favorite target to be in action against the Panthers.
Bo Scaife (Tennessee Titans) Status – Questionable
Scaife’s fantasy value is limited, but he did score against the Jags.
Chris Cooley (Washington Redskins) Status – Questionable
Cooley suffered a concussion against the Colts. Keep an eye on his status.
