Chiefs at Texans
Houston has a huge injury report (a cool 18 players are on it today), though exactly half of them are listed as questionable. After missing last week’s game, WR Jacoby Jones (calf) practiced Friday on a limited basis, and it’s expected that he’ll play. DE Mario Williams missed Wednesday and Thursday as well, and he’s also listed as questionable with a shoulder.
Kansas City WR Chris Chambers (finger) was added to the list Friday, and he’s questionable to play. S Kendrick Lewis (hamstring), OT Ryan O’Callaghan (groin) and DE Tyson Jackson (knee) also are questionable, though all had full participation in Friday’s practice.
Lions at Giants
Two big question marks in this game. The first is whether Detroit WR Calvin Johnson will play. You’ll recall that Johnson hurt himself late in the Lions blowout last week of the Rams, and coach Jim Schwartz has taken some criticism this week about why Johnson was even in the game at the time.
Johnson practiced Friday and he appears to be getting close to health. He’s a gametime decision, but it seems likely that he’ll play.
The second big question mark is whether starting QB Matthew Stafford will return from his right shoulder injury and play for the first time since Week 1. He’s listed as questionable, but it sounds like Schwartz will continue to use backup Shaun Hill for at least another week.
For the Giants, C Shaun O’Hara (ankle), LB Keith Bulluck (toe) and K Lawrence Tynes (ankle) are questionable. But the Giants signed free agent K Shayne Graham today, so it doesn’t sound like Tynes will play, especially after a fruitless Saturday morning at practice.
Falcons at Eagles
Two of Atlanta’s more important defensive players are questionable for Sunday. DE John Abraham, who has been having a standout year thus far, is 50-50 to play with a back injury. He was limited in practice all week. Meanwhile, rookie LB Sean Weatherspoon didn’t practice all week with a sprained right knee.
LT Jason Peters will be out this week after his left knee sprain. Which is unfortunate for Philadelphia, because, as the 49ers showed last week, Peters’ backup, King Dunlap, is easily overwhelmed. Dunlap looked absolutely terrible, and the Eagles have to hope they can get something out of Peters.
Eagles WR Riley Cooper missed last week’s game after suffering a concussion, but he was cleared to practice last Wednesday. He was limited Wednesday, sat out Thursday and was a full participant Friday. He’s questionable, as is QB Michael Vick. But Kevin Kolb will start at QB, so unless he’s injured, don’t expect to see Vick.
Seahawks at Bears
The biggest loss for the Bears would be LB Lance Briggs – who’s questionable because of an ankle injury. He didn’t practice all week, and coach Lovie Smith, during his Friday news conference, didn’t sound optimistic that Briggs could play.
LG Roberto Garza is out because of a knee injury, and because of that, Chicago will shift T Chris Williams to his spot. S Major Wright is also out with a hamstring injury.
Seattle G Chester Pitts is listed as questionable, but he won’t play. He’s still recovering from microfracture surgery. Obviously, the Seahawks still think Pitts will help them; otherwise they wouldn’t have kept him on their 53-man roster for this long.
