S Ed Reed (Probable-Chest) The Ravens' Ed Reed is expected to be good to go after a much needed upcoming bye week. If the Ravens get any more disabled, their locker room will start to look like an early bird buffet at Denny's.
DE Mario Williams (Probable-Wrist) Mario Williams is expected to fully recover from pain in his wrist after the upcoming bye week. The pain is said to stem from counting all that money while laughing to the bank. Williams was supposed to be a defensive monster, instead he has basically been a green light for every running back. The Bills rank dead last in the NFL against defending the run. They are giving up more yards per carry than the expansion Cleveland Browns in 1999 and the expansion Houston Texans in 2002. That's right. You could probably find better guys to play defense outside your local Home Depot.
QB Cam Newton (Probable) Cam Newton is expected to play despite suffering from a severe case of 'career going into the toilet.' Its a disease originated by former Seahawks QB Rick Mirer.
QB Jay Cutler (Questionable-Ribs) Jay Cutler is suffering from bruised ribs after the Lions' Ndamukong Suh delivered his weekly cheap shot. The Bears coaching staff thought Cutler's pain was a lot worse due to the look on his face, until they realized that Cutler always looks like that. Cutler shares the same haircut as Johnny Lawrence in the Karate Kid and always looks like he is either about to cry or punch his dog.
RB DeMarco Murray (Out-Foot) The Cowboys are hoping DeMarco Murray can practice at some point this week but it does not look good. Look for Murray to be out another week or two with back-up running back Felix Jones getting the bulk of the carries, despite being nicked up himself.
WR Nate Burleson (Out for the season-Broken Leg) Lions fans are so worried about Calvin Johnson suffering an injury from the 'Madden Curse', that they decided to sacrifice Burleson in an effort to appease the EA Sports gods.
Green Bay Packers
WR Greg Jennings (Questionable-Private Parts) Nothing new here.
QB Blaine Gabbert (Doubtful-Shoulder) Blaine Gabbert suffered a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder on Sunday. Jaguars fans rejoiced….all three of them.
RB Maurice Jones-Drew (Out-Foot) Maurice Jones-Drew went down early Sunday with a foot injury. This will result in the star running back missing at least a game or two. It will also solidify that no other Jaguars player will be represented in fantasy football for the remainder of 2012.
New Orleans Saints
TE Jimmy Graham (Inactive-Ankle) The Saints plan to test out Jimmy Graham's ankle but have no time table set for his return. This will obviously have no effect on quarterback Drew Brees' throwing all over the field like a modern day version of Techmo Bowl, but I wanted Jimmy to know that us football fans care.
San Francisco 49ers
RB Frank Gore (Questionable-Ribs) Frank Gore said he endured "the worst pain of his life" when he injured his ribs during Thursday's win over Seattle. However, he expects to be ready for this Sunday's game against division rival, Arizona. Keep an eye on this, fantasy owners.
TE Fred Davis (Out for the season- Torn Achilles tendon) Fred Davis underwent surgery on Monday and is to expect a recovery time of six months. This is awful news for the Redskins but fantastic news for Davis. This way he can sit at home and watch all of the paternity test episodes on Maury without having to be bothered to go to practice. So Davis, enjoy all of the break-dancing and the "You are NOT the father" phrases.
