The injury bug has yet to take its bye week.
In fact, there is a good chance it will never do so at all this season.
Week 9 features a number of huge matchups across the league, but also features a number of stars sitting on the sidelines.
No team is more severely damaged than the New York Football Giants.
Big Blue lists star wide receiver Hakeem Nicks and star running back Ahmad Bradshaw as doubtful for their game with the Patriots.
The Giants are bummed, but have to play on; fantasy owners are livid.
This year's Madden-cursed star, Peyton Hillis, is also out this week and possibly even next. So far this year there has only been one consistent thing with Hills: He's consistently not playing.
There are several more players who have already been ruled out this week. Those names include: Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson, Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb, Cowboys running back Felix Jones, Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss, Saints running back Mark Ingram, Raiders running back Darren McFadden, Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham, Lions running back Jahvid Best and Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.
Other potential players to go M.I.A. this week include Jets wide receiver Plaxico Burress, Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas, Chargers duo of running back Ryan Mathews and wide receiver Malcom Floyd, Rams quarterback Sam Bradford, Patriots running back Kevin Faulk and Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski.
All in all, there are a lot of points sitting on the sideline this week.
That simply means that somebody else has to step up. In most cases, that question has a definitive answer—but for some it is still a mystery.
