NFL Player Report: Redskins and the Rest

The most complete report on who's in and out of the lineup, who's coming back, who's playing well, and who's in a slump. Here's news on the Redskins, their upcoming opponents, the rest of the NFC East, and around the NFL.

Redskins:

Rogers, Carlos (Washington Redskins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Carlos Rogers was held out of Sunday's game against the 49ers after aggravating the ankle he had sprained the previous week. Rogers should return as the nickel back this week at the N.Y. Giants.

Salave'a, Joe (Washington Redskins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DT Joe Salave'a gutted it out against San Francisco, starting despite an extremely painful plantar fascia, in part because fellow DTs Cedric Killings (ankle) and Aki Jones (hamstring) were hurt even worse. Salave'a, who didn't practice last week, was limping badly on Monday, but is expected to remain in the lineup in New York.

Griffin, Cornelius (Washington Redskins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DT Cornelius Griffin will likely miss at least one practice this week after straining a hip flexor against the 49ers. Coach Joe Gibbs is hopeful that Griffin, who has missed just five games in his six seasons, will be ready to face his old team this Sunday.

Taylor, Sean (Washington Redskins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
FS Sean Taylor, who came within three yards of his first touchdown after picking off the fifth pass of his career, was limping around on Monday with an ailing ankle and might miss some practice time this week.

Moss, Santana (Washington Redskins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Santana Moss has 38 catches, 743 yards (19.6 average) and five touchdowns through six games, putting him on pace for the greatest season by a receiver for a franchise that has employed Hall of Fame wideouts Charley Taylor and Bobby Mitchell as well as standouts Art Monk, Gary Clark, Ricky Sanders, Charlie Brown and Henry Ellard.

Division:

Nguyen, Dat (Dallas Cowboys) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Dat Nguyen missed his third straight game with a "stinger". But coach Bill Parcells he will be ready for the Cardinals game. Of course, the Cowboys thought Nguyen would be ready for the Seahawks. He practiced all last week and was upgraded to probable. But in the end, Parcells didn't feel Nguyen was mentally ready to play, so he held him out.

Jones, Julius (Dallas Cowboys) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Julius Jones missed his second straight game with a sprained ankle. The Cowboys could hold Jones out another week. With a bye Nov. 6, it will give him that much more time to be 100 percent for the Eagles game to start the second half of the season.

Price, Peerless (Dallas Cowboys) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Peerless Price saw his first significant playing time of the season in Sunday's game. The wide receiver caught one pass for 19 yards, returned five punts and picked up 9 yards on a reverse in the Cowboys' only touchdown drive. Parcells said he role will increase in the coming weeks. "It was important to get the timing back," Price said. "Returning punts was new because I hadn't done it in a while."

Johnson, Al (Dallas Cowboys) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
OC Al Johnson took the blame for what was the fifth fumbled snap exchange of the season between him and quarterback Drew Bledsoe in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Johnson said the ball was wet because of the rain and it just slipped out of his hands on the snap.

Burress, Plaxico (New York Giants) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Plaxico Burress was having his right shoulder checked out after injuring it in the final two minutes of Sunday's game, coach Tom Coughlin said. "He came out and went back in and finished the game. But, we're running all the tests on that," Coughlin said Monday. "He's sore today."

Toomer, Amani (New York Giants) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Amani Toomer showed his poise and experience in the final play that won the game. "I went in motion (from his slot position), then planted the cornerback on the sideline and cut across," he said. "I saw the middle linebacker (Al Wilson) was dropped deep, so I went in front of him. Eli threw the perfect pass; only I could catch it or it would be incomplete."

Emmons, Carlos (New York Giants) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Carlos Emmons was awaiting the results of an MRI on Monday after leaving Sunday's game with a pectoral injury. Coach Tom Coughlin said, "We are waiting to see," when asked if the muscle was torn. Coughlin said the injury happened when Emmons extended to make a tackle, missed and had his arms "ripped through."

Toomer, Amani (New York Giants) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Amani Toomer caught a season-high eight catches Sunday, including the game winner in the final seconds of the game. It was his first game with more than four receptions all season as he has taken a supporting roll to WR Plaxico Burress and TE Jeremy Shockey. "It was hard, but it's hard to be upset when you're winning," Toomer said of his diminished role. "Our team was winning, we were doing well. Plax was having great success and you can't really be upset about somebody else doing well. You just wait for the flow of the offense, and hopefully now that I've made some plays, and we've both made plays together, I think that's how the whole team wanted to use us both together with Shockey and Tiki (Barber) as well."

Tuck, Justin (New York Giants) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Justin Tuck continues to receive increased playing time, something coach Tom Coughlin said has simply been earned and helps keep the entire line fresh. "We like to play -- we like to try and stay fresh and he was able to come in and make a couple of hard plays and provide solid pass rush," Coughlin said. "We do want to continue to try to utilize him."

Barber, Tiki (New York Giants) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Tiki Barber (19 carries, 86 yards), said Sunday's game was one of just a handful of comebacks that stuck in his mind as special. "You don't forget games like this one," he said. "We seem to be on a roll, and Elisha (Manning; he is always formal) is just playing out of sight."

Diehl, Dave (New York Giants) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LG David Diehl, who has started every game since becoming the team's fifth round pick in 2003, smiled happily and explained that he was 2-1 this weekend. Huh? "I'm from Chicago," he said, "and I went to (the University of) Illinois, so my college got killed by Penn State (63-10), but my White Sox won the first game of the World Series, and now this amazing comeback."

Manning, Eli (New York Giants) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Eli Manning has been praised for his poise in leading the Giants from 13 points down in the fourth quarter to win Sunday's game. "He certainly is a guy who keeps pretty much everything in perspective and when he comes to the sideline, he has good information," coach Tom Coughlin said. "He does have the ability to, as I said last week, to put some of the bad things behind him and go onto the next play and make the next play the most important play. I think he can pass that onto his teammates in critical situations where the pressure is on to have to perform in order to win. His teammates can take strength from the fact that he is poised, he is calm, and he is under control."

France, Todd (Philadelphia Eagles) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
K Todd France has made 6 of 7 field goal attempts since replacing injured David Akers. But with Akers expected to return sometime in the next couple of weeks, his days as an Eagles probably are numbered.

731 Akers, David (Philadelphia Eagles) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
K David Akers, who has missed the last three games with a torn hamstring, could return either this week against Denver or next week against Washington, according to head coach Andy Reid.

4062 Moats, Ryan (Philadelphia Eagles) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Ryan Moats, who was activated for the first time Sunday and returned kickoffs, suffered a concussion in the game. While he'll probably be healthy enough to play this week, it's uncertain whether he will. He fumbled both of his kickoff return attempts.

 

Upcoming Opponents:

Griese, Brian (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Brian Griese was placed on injured reserve with a torn ligament in his left knee. He will have surgery later this week.

Bolden, Juran (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Juran Bolden is nursing a separated shoulder and is likely to be questionable for Sunday's game at San Francisco.

Shepherd, Edell (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Edell Shepherd was arrested following the Bucs' win over Miami two weeks ago for battery on a law enforcement officer and operating an unregistered vehicle. Team officials say they are still gathering information about the incident and plan no sanctions at this time.

Abdullah, Hazma (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
S Hazma Abdullah was re-signed to the Bucs practice squad, reuniting all the Bucs' 2005 draft picks with the team.

Woodson, Charles (Oakland Raiders) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Charles Woodson suffered a broken left fibula and S Derrick Gibson a dislocated left wrist. Woodson will not need surgery. Gibson had surgery Monday morning to insert pins in his wrist.

Both will be out at least six to eight weeks, and Norv Turner said Monday their progress will be monitored. If they don't appear to be recovering in time for the final two to four games, they could be put on injured reserve.

"It completely changes what we're doing," Turner said. "But our guys certainly stepped up yesterday."

Jarrod Cooper, a special teams player who rarely plays on defense, was forced into action as a safety in the "Wolverine" alignment which was designed for Woodson.

"I can't even tell you how much we're going to miss Charles Woodson and Derrick Gibson," Cooper said. "I can't even express that. But everybody gets paid. Just step up and do the job, that's all we're asking."

Gibson, Derrick (Oakland Raiders) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
S Derrick Gibson a dislocated left wrist and CB Charles Woodson suffered a broken left fibula. Woodson will not need surgery. Gibson had surgery Monday morning to insert pins in his wrist.

Both will be out at least six to eight weeks, and Norv Turner said Monday their progress will be monitored. If they don't appear to be recovering in time for the final two to four games, they could be put on injured reserve.

"It completely changes what we're doing," Turner said. "But our guys certainly stepped up yesterday."

Jarrod Cooper, a special teams player who rarely plays on defense, was forced into action as a safety in the "Wolverine" alignment which was designed for Woodson.

"I can't even tell you how much we're going to miss Charles Woodson and Derrick Gibson," Cooper said. "I can't even express that. But everybody gets paid. Just step up and do the job, that's all we're asking."

Janikowski, Sebastian (Oakland Raiders) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
K Sebastian Janikowski had a field goal and four extra points and has 587 points, passing Marcus Allen for fifth on the Raiders' all-time scoring list.

Anderson, Courtney (Oakland Raiders) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
TE Courtney Anderson, for the second time this season, was not the intended target of a single pass. After catching 5 passes for a career-high 100 yards in a Week 3 loss to Philadelphia, Anderson has 4 catches for 46 yards in his last three games. He had two penalties against Buffalo (one illegal motion, one holding penalty).

Foschi, John Paul (Oakland Raiders) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
FB John Paul Foschi, a converted tight end inactive since a Week 2 knee injury against Kansas City, caught the first two passes of his career for 11 yards on checkdowns from QB Kerry Collins.

Sapp, Warren (Oakland Raiders) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DT Warren Sapp had his second sack of the season and several pressures of Buffalo quarterback Kelly Holcomb. He was awarded one of three game balls, along with defensive tackle Ted Washington and safety Renaldo Hill, and Norv Turner said it was his best game as a Raider.

Last Opponent:

Hicks, Maurice (San Francisco 49ers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
KR Maurice Hicks had plenty of chances Sunday, but he was unable to break any kind of long returns. He had eight kickoff returns for a lowly 16.6-yard average. The 49ers' average starting point after kickoffs was the 27-yard line.

Lloyd, Brandon (San Francisco 49ers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Brandon Lloyd is the team's leading receiver with 19 catches for 369 yards and three touchdowns. Last year through the first six games, tight end Eric Johnson had 45 catches for 484 yards. In fact, Lloyd's numbers would have ranked him fourth last year through six games.

Lee, Andy (San Francisco 49ers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
P Andy Lee, whose 96 punts last year were just one of the team record for a season, has attempted 36 punts through six games. He is on pace to equal the number of punts he had last year.

Smith, Alex (San Francisco 49ers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Alex Smith had a rough time, but he showed some improvement over his first NFL starting assignment. Against the Colts, Smith had five turnovers with four interceptions and one lost fumble. On Sunday, he had one interception and one lost fumble against the Redskins. Despite 47 fewer passing attempts this season than Tim Rattay, Smith has been sacked 12 times this season. Rattay was sacked 10 times before getting traded to the Buccaneers last week.

Gore, Frank (San Francisco 49ers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Frank Gore has been the 49ers' best rookie, and he could be setting himself up for a solid second half of the season. Gore gained 89 yards on nine carries with a 72-yard TD run late in the game. Gore is getting nearly half the touches as starter Kevan Barlow, gaining 198 yards on 34 carries for a 5.8 average.

 

Fantasy/General:

Baxter, Gary (Cleveland Browns) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Gary Baxter had surgery on Monday to repair a torn pectoral muscle, and will be lost for the season. The team's biggest free agent-signing started five games in Cleveland after starting 46 in a row for Baltimore. Baxter signed a six-year, $30 million contract with the Browns in the off-season. The deal included a $10.5 million signing bonus. Leigh Bodden figures to replace Baxter.

Johnson, Kevin (Detroit Lions) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Kevin Johnson, who leads the Lions injury-depleted receiving corps with 17 receptions for 133 yards, has been lost for the season with a ruptured right Achilles tendon. Johnson was injured in the Lions' game Sunday at Cleveland and will require surgery to repair the damage.

Green, Ahman (Green Bay Packers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Ahman Green will miss the remainder of the 2005 campaign because of a ruptured tendon in his right quadriceps. Green sustained the injury with about eight minutes left in the fourth quarter of the 23-20 loss at Minnesota on Sunday. He will undergo surgery later this week. Green is the fourth player on offense -- and the second running back -- the 1-5 Packers have lost to a season-ending injury. The four-time Pro Bowl halfback started Sunday's game at less than 100 percent. He had strained the same tendon in the quad and suffered a bruised right knee during the Oct. 3 defeat at Carolina. Green missed the next game before the Packers had the bye on the schedule. "This (injury) is significant enough to keep him out the rest of the season," head coach Mike Sherman said. "My understanding is that he'll be ready to go next year."

Moss, Randy (Oakland Raiders) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Randy Moss, who suffered a bruised ribs, a groin strain and a pelvic bruise the previous week against San Diego, was listed as "doubtful" all week before playing on Sunday. Only in rare instances have Raiders players listed as "doubtful" ended up playing on Sunday.

"Wednesday, I would have said he was very, very doubtful," coach Norv Turner said. "I thought Friday there was a chance, but Saturday morning I would have said no. He went out Sunday morning and said he was excited about the way he felt, so we plotted out a plan how we'd use him."

Moss may not be full strength against Tennessee this Sunday, but sitting out the second half against Buffalo while the Raiders ran the ball and worked the clock prevented further injury.

"Randy is no worse than he was," Turner said. "I think each day he'll continue getting better."

 

Short, Brandon (Carolina Panthers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Jason Short missed Sunday's game with a high ankle sprain. He'll likely be sidelined for at least a couple of more weeks.

Maynard, Brad (Chicago Bears) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
P Brad Maynard, questionable for the game with a strained right calf, kicked seven times for a mediocre 35.9-yard net average, but two of his punts were downed inside the Ravens' 10-yard line.

Peppers, Julius (Carolina Panthers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Julius Peppers did not practice on Monday because of a broken bone in his hand, but said he will practice Wednesday, and said there's no way the injury will keep him out Sunday. Peppers said he broke the bone in the middle finger near the base of the hand.

Foster, DeShaun (Carolina Panthers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB DeShaun Foster did not practice again Monday. He has missed the last two weeks of work because of a knee injury.

Smith, Steve (Carolina Panthers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Steve Smith is hoping to continue his torrid pace after the bye week. Smith has 39 receptions for 596 yards and seven touchdowns through six games and could be headed to his second Pro Bowl, but his first as a receiver. Smith made it as a return man as a rookie in 2001.

Morgan, Dan (Carolina Panthers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Dan Morgan was back at practice on Monday wearing a shoulder harness to protect his dislocated shoulder. Morgan hopes to play Sunday against the Vikings.

Morris, Sammy (Miami Dolphins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Sammy Morris continues to receive snaps as a third-down back, even with Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown on the same roster. Morris played for five snaps in last Friday's 30-20 loss to Kansas City.

McDougle, Stockar (Miami Dolphins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RT Stockar McDougle was benched in favor of Vernon Carey for the Chiefs game because of his penchant for penalties. McDougle committed five infractions, two of which were declined, the previous game against Tampa Bay.

Carter, Kevin (Miami Dolphins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Kevin Carter suffered a calf injury against Kansas City and failed to log a tackle.

Bell, Yeremiah (Miami Dolphins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
Yeremiah Bell failed to do an effective job helping Miami contain TE Tony Gonzalez, who finished with seven catches for 67 yards.

Taylor, Jason (Miami Dolphins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Jason Taylor reportedly is playing with a left heel injury (plantar fasciitis). He missed two days of practice but still played against Kansas City, finishing with seven tackles. "It's still attached, and I made it through," said Taylor, who was injured in an October 16 game at Tampa Bay. "It's painful, but it'll be all right. We talked about it all week whether playing would hurt it worse. Of course, having a Friday night game threw us a curve ball, but I'll rest it and we'll see how it is next week. It'll be fine."

Seymour, Richard (New England Patriots) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Richard Seymour, who missed the last two games before the bye week, wants to suit up after the bye. "I expect to be there," Seymour said. "Definitely."

Davis, Andre (New England Patriots) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Andre' Davis, who was re-signed on Oct. 19, could take over the No. 3 receiver spot from Troy Brown, who is nursing a foot injury. Brown missed the Patriots' last game before the bye week.

Davis, Don (New England Patriots) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Don Davis could see time at safety, given the injuries to Rodney Harrison, Guss Scott and James Sanders. Harrison and Scott are out for the year.

Poole, Tyrone (New England Patriots) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Tyrone Poole was on crutches last week, his rehabbing of an ankle injury having hit a snag. Poole, who hasn't played since Week 1, had been practicing and had sounded confident that he could return soon. However, coach Bill Belichick told a radio interviewer that Poole hadn't made the necessary progress and that the team's medical staff felt that the injury needed "time to quiet down."

Dilfer, Trent (Cleveland Browns) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Trent Dilfer has struggled since throwing for 336 yards against Green Bay. In the past three weeks, Dilfer has thrown for 218, 147 and 73 yards. He has accounted for eight turnovers in those three games (two fumbles, six interceptions). And his rating for those three games has been 51.18 -- with a low of 22.4 Sunday against Detroit. Coach Romeo Crennel said he has not thought of removing Dilfer for rookie Charlie Frye, but he added that the offense has to improve. "We haven't executed very well for the last three games," Crennel said. "We have to try to get that fixed."

Droughns, Reuben (Cleveland Browns) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Reuben Droughns had the first 100-yard game by a Browns back this season when he ran 19 times for 100 yards against Detroit. Most of Droughns' yards came in the first half, though, as Droughns ran for 83 yards in the first two periods.

Parker, Willie (Pittsburgh Steelers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Willie Parker, with 539 yards rushing, is more than halfway to becoming the Steelers' first 1,000-yard rusher since Jerome Bettis ran for 1,072 yards in 2001. If he keeps it up, he would become the first back other than Bettis to gain 1,000 yards since Barry Foster set the team record with 1,690 in 1992.

Wilson, Cedrick (Pittsburgh Steelers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Cedrick Wilson, the Steelers' lone UFA signing this year, did not have a catch Sunday, and has only two receptions in his past three games, for 33 yards. He also has a broken bone and a torn ligament in his right wrist.

Hope, Chris (Pittsburgh Steelers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
S Chris Hope ended Carson Palmer's streak of 169 passes without an interception. His second interception of the season and one fumble recovery are two more turnovers than he produced in 2004, his first season as a starter.

Miller, Heath (Pittsburgh Steelers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
TE Heath Miller has 16 receptions and scored four touchdowns, second among receivers in both categories to Hines Ward, who has 21 and five.

James, Edgerrin (Indianapolis Colts) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Edgerrin James has taken over the NFL rushing lead after his 139-yard performance at Houston Sunday. James now has 801 yards on 163 carries and has scored seven touchdowns. He is averaging 4.9 yards per carry this season. James also leads the league in yards from scrimmage (973) and is tied for third in total touchdowns with eight.

Mathis, Robert (Indianapolis Colts) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Robert Mathis continues to lead the league in sacks. Mathis has netted eight sacks this season and set a franchise-record with his seventh-straight game with a sack.

June, Cato (Indianapolis Colts) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Cato June remains the NFL leader with five interceptions this season. June did not have an interception in the Colts' win over Houston.

Sanders, Bob (Indianapolis Colts) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
S Bob Sanders was able to return to Sunday's game after suffering a wrist/forearm injury midway through the second quarter. The injury was first thought to be related to a strained bicep he initially incurred at San Francisco three weeks ago.

Jefferson, Joseph (Indianapolis Colts) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
S Joseph Jefferson appears to be very close to returning to playing for the Colts. Jefferson incurred a turf toe injury in the season-opener at Baltimore and has not played since. He could have played at Houston on Sunday, but was held out.

Tripplett, Larry (Indianapolis Colts) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DT Larry Tripplett may be available for the Patriots' game in two weeks. Tripplett has been bothered by a high ankle sprain and has been held out of practice.

Bailey, Champ (Denver Broncos) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Champ Bailey allowed a touchdown and was called for three penalties against the Giants. But he felt that Burress got away with a good deal of pushing and shoving during the game and was only called for one offensive penalty. And on the play Burress was called for offensive pass interference, safety John Lynch was also flagged for pass interference and the penalties canceled each other out.

"It was very frustrating," Bailey said. "That's the way it goes sometimes. We're in their backyard so things are definitely going to go their way more than ours."

Broncos coach Mike Shanahan said he disagreed with some of the calls against Bailey, but he was adamant that those calls weren't what cost the Broncos a win.

"There's not one call in that game that was a deciding factor," Shanahan said. "There wasn't. You lose a game like that, you can go back to 10 plays on offense and 10 on defense."

The best news for Bailey was that he got through the game with no more problems to his hamstring. Bailey missed two games and was pulled in the third quarter against New England because of his injured left hamstring.

"I held up pretty decent," Bailey said.

Bailey will likely be matched up against Philadelphia's Terrell Owens this week.

Rogers, Shaun (Detroit Lions) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DT Shaun Rogers has a strained MCL in his right knee and will probably be on a week-to-week basis, Lions coach Steve Mariucci said Monday. Rogers was hurt in the 13-10 victory Sunday at Cleveland. He was sore Monday, and there is doubt regarding how soon he might be able to return to practice.

Bly, Dre (Detroit Lions) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Dre' Bly could be facing surgery to repair damage done to his right wrist in the Lions' game Sunday at Cleveland. Bly had bones dislocated and left the game in the second half. The surgery -- if necessary -- probably would not be season-ending, but would require him to play with his right hand in a cast of some sort. Bly, a two-time Pro Bowler, had four interceptions in the last three games.

Garcia, Jeff (Detroit Lions) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Jeff Garcia said he had some soreness, but nothing extreme or severe after playing Sunday in the Lions' 13-10 victory at Cleveland. It was Garcia's first appearance since suffering a broken left fibula and badly sprained left ankle in the Sept. 2 preseason finale at Buffalo.

Backus, Jeff (Detroit Lions) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LT Jeff Backus, who played in the Lions' 13-10 victory Sunday at Cleveland despite a sprained ankle, was feeling considerable discomfort in the ankle Monday, but he apparently did no additional damage. Backus did not practice last week until Friday, and he might be facing the same situation this week, but it appears he will try to play in the game against Chicago next Sunday.

Oben, Roman (San Diego Chargers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LT Roman Oben signed a contract extension which goes through the 2008 season.

Flanagan, Mike (Green Bay Packers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
OC Mike Flanagan is slated to return to practice Wednesday after recovering from Oct. 5 surgery to repair a sports hernia. "Hopefully, he'll be ready to go this week. (But) no guarantee on that," head coach Mike Sherman said of Flanagan's status for Sunday. Scott Wells started in Flanagan's place the last two games.

Collins, Nick (Green Bay Packers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
FS Nick Collins will be questionable for the game Sunday because of a bruised left quadriceps. He underwent an MRI on Monday afternoon. The starter missed most of the second half with the injury. Fellow rookie Marviel Underwood replaced Collins.

Jenkins, Cullen (Green Bay Packers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DT Cullen Jenkins also is a question mark for the next game because of a strained calf, which he sustained late in the fourth quarter. Sherman said Jenkins will be "limited" in practice this week. Corey Williams would be the logical choice to replace Jenkins in the starting lineup.

Thomas, Robert (Green Bay Packers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
OLB Robert Thomas, the starter on the weak side, suffered a shoulder "stinger" early in the fourth quarter but returned to finish the game.

Horton, Jason (Green Bay Packers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Jason Horton injured his shoulder in the game, and the backup underwent an MRI on Monday.

Leach, Vonta (Green Bay Packers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
FB Vonta Leach sustained a shoulder "stinger" early in the fourth quarter, but later returned to complete the game.

Ross, Oliver (Arizona Cardinals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
OT Oliver Ross is at least another week away from returning from a broken right hand that's caused him to miss three games. Fred Wakefield has replaced him in the starting lineup.

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Josh McCown suffered a bruised left hand and a sprained left ankle, but he finished the game and is expected to play Sunday in Dallas.

Warfield, Eric (Kansas City Chiefs) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Eric Warfield, who was told just prior to kickoff in Miami that he would make his first start since returning from his four-game league suspension, played well enough in the absence of injured replacement starter Dexter McCleon that he will start again Sunday in San Diego, coach Dick Vermeil said Monday.

Parker, Samie (Kansas City Chiefs) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Samie Parker, a starter in just his second NFL season, is expected to miss a second straight game this week in San Diego. Parker has a knee injury the Chiefs think will heal without surgery, but he was securing a second opinion on Monday after he missed the Miami game.

McGee, Terrence (Buffalo Bills) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB/KR Terrence McGee injured his right leg in the second half of Sunday's game against Oakland. His status for this week's game at New England will be updated on Wednesday, coach Mike Mularkey said, but he felt the NFL's leading kick returner would be fine to play.

Villarrial, Chris (Buffalo Bills) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
OG Chris Villarrial suffered a minor concussion against the Raiders, but should be fine for this weekend's game at New England.

Thomas, Dontarrious (Minnesota Vikings) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Dontarrious Thomas, whom the Vikings use in their nickel defense, hopes to return Sunday after missing the Green Bay game because of a bruised right shoulder.

Burleson, Nate (Minnesota Vikings) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Nate Burleson, who caught three passes Sunday after missing three games because of a sprained left knee, said he received treatment Monday and felt "pretty good."

Smoot, Fred (Minnesota Vikings) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Fred Smoot did such a good job on Packers receiver Donald Driver in the second half Sunday that it wouldn't be surprising to see Smoot assigned to more No. 1 receivers regardless of where they line up. Driver had six receptions in the first half and only two in the second with Smoot on him.

Williams, Moe (Minnesota Vikings) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------

Young, Brian (New Orleans Saints) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DT Brian Young sustained a plantar fascia injury to his foot during Sunday's game with the Rams, but returned by the end of the contest. He will be questionable for this week.

Horn, Joe (New Orleans Saints) (10/24/2005)

Meier, Shad (New Orleans Saints) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
TE Shad Meier, who had knee surgery in early August, was sidelined for the seventh consecutive game and his return is uncertain.

Bulger, Marc (St. Louis Rams) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Marc Bulger threw for the first time Monday since injuring his shoulder Oct. 17 against the Colts and felt "pretty good," according to interim coach Joe Vitt. Bulger has a chance to play Sunday against Jacksonville.

Terrell, Claude (St. Louis Rams) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LG Claude Terrell spent Sunday night in the hospital after suffering a sprained neck against the Saints Sunday. An MRI was negative, but Terrell was "stiff and sore" Monday, according to interim coach Joe Vitt.

Johnson, Chris (St. Louis Rams) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------

Holt, Torry (St. Louis Rams) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------

Reed, Ed (Baltimore Ravens) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
SS Ed Reed is walking around with a protective boot and is considered doubtful to play against the Steelers. He has a high ankle sprain. He would be replaced by Chad Williams.

Lewis, Ray (Baltimore Ravens) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Ray Lewis is not expected to play against the Steelers because of a low hamstring injury. He would be replaced by Bart Scott.

Scott, Bart (Baltimore Ravens) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Bart Scott could start in place of Ray Lewis, who has a low hamstring injury.

Clayton, Mark (Baltimore Ravens) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Mark Clayton has the best chance to start of the Ravens' injured players. He has a sprained ankle.

Weaver, Anthony (Baltimore Ravens) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Anthony Weaver likely will miss another game with a toe injury.

Taylor, Chester (Baltimore Ravens) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Chester Taylor got fewer opportunities, despite being the Ravens' most effective running back. He had two carries -- both in the first half -- and gained 21 yards.

Wiegert, Zach (Houston Texans) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RG Zach Wiegert will not practice Wednesday because of his high ankle sprain.

Davis, Domanick (Houston Texans) (10/24/2005)

RB Domanick Davis sprained his wrist and will be limited in practice Wednesday.

Brown, Ceandris (Houston Texans) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB C.C. Brown missed a start because of a knee injury, but did see limited action. He should be full-go in practice this week.

Taylor, Fred (Jacksonville Jaguars) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Fred Taylor, who sat out the Pittsburgh game before the bye week with a sprained ankle, said he'll be ready to return for the game in St. Louis Sunday.

Williams, Mo (Jacksonville Jaguars) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RT Mo Williams, who suffered a calf injury late in the Pittsburgh game and said he couldn't have returned if the game had gone into overtime, will return to play in St. Louis, according to coach Jack Del Rio.

McNair, Steve (Tennessee Titans) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Steve McNair is expected back on the practice field Wednesday, and coach Jeff Fisher said he expects the veteran quarterback to return to the huddle against Oakland on Sunday. McNair didn't travel to Arizona with the team, as he rehabilitated his lower back and saved himself two cross-country flights.

Volek, Billy (Tennessee Titans) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Billy Volek started in place of Steve McNair (back) in Arizona, but didn't finish the game because of a concussion he suffered on a sack and a strip by linebacker Karlos Dansby. Coach Jeff Fisher reported that Volek was fine on Monday.

Jones, Brandon (Tennessee Titans) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Brandon Jones suffered a right knee injury in Arizona and the Titans categorized test results as "positive." But his status for Sunday's game against Oakland is in doubt.

Brown, Chris (Tennessee Titans) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Chris Brown was knocked out of the game for the second time this season on a hit that left him with numbness in his right hand and forced a costly fumble. Coach Jeff Fisher said the feeling was returning, and that the injury was to the brachial plexus, a network of nerves that runs down the arm.

Williams, Madieu (Cincinnati Bengals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
FS Madieu Williams' season might be over. The second-year Bengals safety, one of the team's surest tacklers, is out of the Green Bay game Sunday because of a shoulder injury. It will be the fourth game he has missed this season after injuring the shoulder during a non-contact Friday practice before the Houston game. Asked if Williams' injury were season-ending, coach Marvin Lewis said, "Possibly. Well, we've been playing without him for most of the year. Obviously, he is a good player for us. But we've been playing without him, and we'll move on." In Williams' absence, Kevin Kaesviharn has moved to free safety, and Ifeanyi Ohalete plays strong safety. Ohalete missed a tackle on Willie Parker's 37-yard touchdown run Sunday for the Steelers.

Ghiaciuc, Eric (Cincinnati Bengals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
OC Eric Ghiaciuc (ankle) is questionable for the Packers on Sunday.

Pollack, David (Cincinnati Bengals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB David Pollack (sprained knee) is questionable for the Packers.

Palmer, Carson (Cincinnati Bengals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Carson Palmer has a bruised left shoulder and was listed as probable for Green Bay. "It's nothing serious, just a little sore from the game," said Palmer.

Ratliff, Keiwan (Cincinnati Bengals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Keiwan Ratliff (hip pointer) is probable.

Stewart, Tony (Cincinnati Bengals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
TE Tony Stewart (back) is probable.

Muhammad, Muhsin (Chicago Bears) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Muhsin Muhammad did not lead the Bears in receiving yardage Sunday for the first time this season. Muhammad, who was frequently doubled, had season lows of three catches and 39 yards.

Bradley, Mark (Chicago Bears) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Mark Bradley had the most productive day of his rookie season with four catches for 37 yards. His numbers could have been much better, but he was overthrown on a couple deep balls after he had beaten the coverage.

Benson, Cedric (Chicago Bears) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Cedric Benson continues to be an afterthought in the Bears' offense. The fourth overall pick in the 2005 draft had two carries for six yards.

Wade, Bobby (Chicago Bears) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Bobby Wade, the NFL's leading punt returner with a 14.7-yard average entering the game, had three returns for 34 yards, an 11.3-yard average.

Mitchell, Jeff (Carolina Panthers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
OC Jeff Mitchell is one of Carolina's five offensive linemen to start all six games this season. The Panthers have suffered no injuries on the offensive line this year.

McIntosh, Damion (Miami Dolphins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LT Damion McIntosh committed two of his team's four penalties against Kansas City.

Samuel, Asante (New England Patriots) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Asante Samuel has only one interception in his last 26 regular-season games.

McGinest, Willie (New England Patriots) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
OLB Willie McGinest has a team-high 2.5 sacks.

Dwight, Tim (New England Patriots) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Tim Dwight and TE Daniel Graham are tied for the team lead with two touchdown catches each, even though they have combined for just 15 receptions.

Graham, Daniel (New England Patriots) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
TE Daniel Graham and WR Tim Dwight are tied for the team lead with two touchdown catches each, even though they have combined for just 15 receptions.

Cribbs, Joshua (Cleveland Browns) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
KR Joshua Cribbs became the fifth rookie in Browns history to return a kickoff for a touchdown. Cribbs' 90-yard return was the only touchdown the Browns had against Detroit.

Bryant, Antonio (Cleveland Browns) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Antonio Bryant lamented a key drop of a third-down pass in the fourth period that may have moved the Browns at least into position to tie the game. But Bryant has had key drops the past two weeks, and he'll never be considered a top-level receiver.

Roye, Orpheus (Cleveland Browns) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Orpheus Roye recovered a fumble in the loss to Detroit, giving the Browns a streak of 19 games in a row with a takeaway. That number ties for the league high.

Northcutt, Dennis (Cleveland Browns) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Dennis Northcutt had 27 yards in punt returns, giving him 1,570 in his career. That figure is the highest in Browns history.

von Oelhoffen, Kimo (Pittsburgh Steelers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Kimo von Oelhoffen sacked QB Chris Palmer and tipped a pass that turned into an interception for Aaron Smith. At 34, von Oelhoffen is still playing at the top of his game.

Manning, Peyton (Indianapolis Colts) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Peyton Manning is second in the league in pass completion percentage (68.1) and third in passing efficiency (98.3) through the first seven weeks of the season.

Wayne, Reggie (Indianapolis Colts) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Reggie Wayne has caught 22 passes over the past three weeks. Wayne is currently tied for the team receiving lead with WR Marvin Harrison, each with 37 receptions.

Foster, George (Denver Broncos) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
OT George Foster took a damaging holding penalty against Giants DE Michael Strahan in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss. That penalty wiped out an 11-yard run and moved the Broncos back, and Jason Elam missed a 49-yard field goal a few plays later that would have given Denver a nine-point lead.

Watts, Darius (Denver Broncos) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Darius Watts was deactivated against the Giants, in part because he doesn't play special teams. Watts has fallen far down the depth chart and it will be tough for him to get back into the rotation at wide receiver.

Devoe, Todd (Denver Broncos) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Todd Devoe was active instead of Darius Watts against the Giants. Devoe was a longshot in training camp that made the team and the coaches are happy with how he works and plays special teams.

Walls, Lenny (Denver Broncos) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Lenny Walls suffered a groin injury against the Giants. The Broncos won't know until later in the week if he will play against Philadelphia.

Brown, Courtney (Denver Broncos) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Courtney Brown is playing well despite the elbow brace he continues to wear. Brown dislocated his elbow early in training camp. Brown said his elbow injury hasn't affected his play.

Tomlinson, LaDainian (San Diego Chargers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB LaDainian Tomlinson couldn't recall when he was bottled up the way he was in Philadelphia, rushing for a career-low 7 yards on 17 carries. "Off the top of my head, I really don't know," he said. "I will say it's been a while since it's been like that."

Neal, Lorenzo (San Diego Chargers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
FB Lorenzo Neal said the Chargers' knack for losing leads in the fourth quarter of all four losses is giving the team a reputation it doesn't embrace. "What I see is that teams are now saying that they know who we are and we just have to learn to finish," he said.

Florence, Drayton (San Diego Chargers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Drayton Florence is anticipating playing on Sunday. He has missed the past two games with an ankle sprain.

Merriman, Shawne (San Diego Chargers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Shawne Merriman had his first NFL start in Philadelphia and did nothing to hurt his cause of holding on to it over Ben Leber.

Davis, Sammy (San Diego Chargers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Sammy Davis (bruised ribs) will likely have his practice time compromised this week and could miss Sunday's game. If Davis and Drayton Florence are ailing, Jamar Fletcher would start.

Brees, Drew (San Diego Chargers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Drew Brees had to face a number of blitzes, and it showed in his completion percentage as he often just dumped the ball on hot reads before the receivers had turned to look. But the offensive line had trouble with protections; it gave up only two sacks, but Brees was pressured into one interception because of the rush.

Moore, Langston (Arizona Cardinals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DT Langston Moore replaced the injured Calvin Pace in the team's five-man front. Moore played fairly well, making three tackles.

Arrington, J.J. (Arizona Cardinals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB J.J. Arrington showed the big-play ability that prompted the team to take him in the second round of last April's draft. Arrington had a 32-yard run and nearly broke it for a touchdown. However, he finished with 30 yards.

Boldin, Anquan (Arizona Cardinals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Anquan Boldin didn't catch a pass last week for first time in 32 NFL games. "It was nothing they did. We were prepared," Boldin said. "It was just the mistakes that we made, whether it be route-running or protections or whatever."

Tynes, Lawrence (Kansas City Chiefs) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
K Lawrence Tynes, who kicked the two longest field goals of his short NFL career from 51 and 52 yards against Miami, credited the weather and the playing field at Dolphins Stadium with an assist on his career night.

Kicking in heat and humidity is something Tynes had gotten used to at Troy State in Alabama.

"In college, our punter's dad nicknamed us "The Swamp Kickers," so I'm used to this kind of weather," Tynes said.

"And I was kicking on the best field I've ever played on, bar none. It's a fairly new surface from what Olindo (Mare, the Miami kicker) was telling me. The ball set up well on the field, and the plant was good. It was like hitting from the fairway."

Tynes has mad a nice recovery from the days late in training camp when his preseason misses had coach Dick Vermeil threatening to find another kicker. But instead of being worried, Tynes made a statement designed to bolster his own confidence.

"I said I was going to be one of the best kickers in the NFL, and I believe that," Tynes repeated after his three field goal night against Miami raised his conversion rate to 12 of 14 field goals this year. "I'm not going to back down from what I said."

Holmes, Priest (Kansas City Chiefs) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Priest Holmes matched his season-long run of 35 yards when he went that distance for a third-quarter touchdown that countered a 65-yard TD run by Miami's Ronnie Brown just 41 seconds earlier.

Gonzalez, Tony (Kansas City Chiefs) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
TE Tony Gonzalez, after being limited to just five catches in his previous three games, had his best game this year with a seven-catch, 67-yard effort against Miami. Gonzalez, however, is still looking for his first trip to the end zone.

Green, Trent (Kansas City Chiefs) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Trent Green started hot in hitting 7 of his first 9 passes for 95 yards against Miami. Included in that run was a 50-yard bomb to Chris Horn as part of a first-series touchdown drive in which Green hit four straight passes for 69 yards. But Green then battled a 1-of-7 slump before rallying later to complete 20 of 34 throws for 289 yards while spreading the ball around to nine different receivers.

 

Holcomb, Kelly (Buffalo Bills) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Kelly Holcomb is now 6-10 as a starting quarterback in the NFL after his personal three-game win streak was snapped with Sunday's loss at Oakland. His passer rating was 110.0, the fifth time he's gone over the 100 mark.

Reed, Josh (Buffalo Bills) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Josh Reed's fifth career TD catch against Oakland was his third on the road.

Shelton, Daimon (Buffalo Bills) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
FB Daimon Shelton's run on fourth-and-goal at the Raiders 1-yard line was his first carry in five seasons. The last time he ran the ball was a one-yard run while playing for Jacksonville at Indianapolis on Sept. 25, 2000. Shelton was stopped for no gain on Sunday.

Lindell, Rian (Buffalo Bills) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
K Rian Lindell has moved to 132nd place on the NFL's all-time scoring list with 514 points. He passed Tommy McDonald (510) and Mark Clayton (510) on Sunday with a field goal and two PATS.

Schobel, Aaron (Buffalo Bills) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Aaron Schobel's sack against the Raiders was his third of the season, giving him 37.5 for his Bills career. He needs one to tie Darryl Talley for fifth on the club's all-time list.

Hackett, D.J. (Seattle Seahawks) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR D.J. Hackett was banged up during the game Sunday, but he should return after the bye week.

Edinger, Paul (Minnesota Vikings) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
K Paul Edinger's 56-yard field goal as time ran out Sunday was the second-longest game-winning field goal in NFL history, behind only Tom Dempsey's 63-yarder for New Orleans in 1970.

Fason, Ciatrick (Minnesota Vikings) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
Ciatrick Fason was active on Sunday, and would have been used in third-and-1 situations if the Vikings had had any.

Booker, Fred (New Orleans Saints) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Fred Booker, a first-year player, was signed from the practice squad to take Allen's spot on the 53-man roster.

Thompson, Dominique (St. Louis Rams) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Dominique Thompson was the team's fourth receiver Sunday with Tory Holt and Isaac Bruce out. An un-drafted free agent, Thompson had a reception for 13 yards, his first NFL catch.

Williams, Chad (Baltimore Ravens) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
SS Chad Williams is expected to start with Ed Reed recovering from a high ankle sprain.

Wright, Anthony (Baltimore Ravens) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Anthony Wright didn't throw an interception in a game for the first time this season. He seemed more conservative with his throws, tossing the ball out of bounds when no one was open.

Peterson, Mike (Jacksonville Jaguars) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Mike Peterson leads the team with 69 tackles, including 34 solo tackles, after the first six games. He also has two interceptions.

Smith, Jimmy (Jacksonville Jaguars) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Jimmy Smith tops the team with 23 receptions after six games and has 404 yards and four touchdowns.

Wilford, Ernest (Jacksonville Jaguars) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Ernest Wilford has just nine catches, but two are for touchdowns.

Mathis, Rashean (Jacksonville Jaguars) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Rashean Mathis is tied for the team lead in interceptions with Mike Peterson with two.

Calico, Tyrone (Tennessee Titans) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Tyrone Calico led the Titans with six catches in Arizona, but managed only 51 yards, and didn't go get one deep ball that seemed like he could have pursued harder.

Rogers, Carlos (Washington Redskins) (10/24/2005)

CB Carlos Rogers was held out of Sunday's game against the 49ers after aggravating the ankle he had sprained the previous week. Rogers should return as the nickel back this week at the N.Y. Giants.

Salave'a, Joe (Washington Redskins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DT Joe Salave'a gutted it out against San Francisco, starting despite an extremely painful plantar fascia, in part because fellow DTs Cedric Killings (ankle) and Aki Jones (hamstring) were hurt even worse. Salave'a, who didn't practice last week, was limping badly on Monday, but is expected to remain in the lineup in New York.

Griffin, Cornelius (Washington Redskins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DT Cornelius Griffin will likely miss at least one practice this week after straining a hip flexor against the 49ers. Coach Joe Gibbs is hopeful that Griffin, who has missed just five games in his six seasons, will be ready to face his old team this Sunday.

Taylor, Sean (Washington Redskins) (10/24/2005)

FS Sean Taylor, who came within three yards of his first touchdown after picking off the fifth pass of his career, was limping around on Monday with an ailing ankle and might miss some practice time this week.

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Santana Moss has 38 catches, 743 yards (19.6 average) and five touchdowns through six games, putting him on pace for the greatest season by a receiver for a franchise that has employed Hall of Fame wideouts Charley Taylor and Bobby Mitchell as well as standouts Art Monk, Gary Clark, Ricky Sanders, Charlie Brown and Henry Ellard.

LB Dat Nguyen missed his third straight game with a "stinger". But coach Bill Parcells he will be ready for the Cardinals game. Of course, the Cowboys thought Nguyen would be ready for the Seahawks. He practiced all last week and was upgraded to probable. But in the end, Parcells didn't feel Nguyen was mentally ready to play, so he held him out.

Jones, Julius (Dallas Cowboys) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Julius Jones missed his second straight game with a sprained ankle. The Cowboys could hold Jones out another week. With a bye Nov. 6, it will give him that much more time to be 100 percent for the Eagles game to start the second half of the season.

Price, Peerless (Dallas Cowboys) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Peerless Price saw his first significant playing time of the season in Sunday's game. The wide receiver caught one pass for 19 yards, returned five punts and picked up 9 yards on a reverse in the Cowboys' only touchdown drive. Parcells said he role will increase in the coming weeks. "It was important to get the timing back," Price said. "Returning punts was new because I hadn't done it in a while."

Johnson, Al (Dallas Cowboys) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
OC Al Johnson took the blame for what was the fifth fumbled snap exchange of the season between him and quarterback Drew Bledsoe in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Johnson said the ball was wet because of the rain and it just slipped out of his hands on the snap.

Burress, Plaxico (New York Giants) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Plaxico Burress was having his right shoulder checked out after injuring it in the final two minutes of Sunday's game, coach Tom Coughlin said. "He came out and went back in and finished the game. But, we're running all the tests on that," Coughlin said Monday. "He's sore today."

Toomer, Amani (New York Giants) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Amani Toomer showed his poise and experience in the final play that won the game. "I went in motion (from his slot position), then planted the cornerback on the sideline and cut across," he said. "I saw the middle linebacker (Al Wilson) was dropped deep, so I went in front of him. Eli threw the perfect pass; only I could catch it or it would be incomplete."

Emmons, Carlos (New York Giants) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Carlos Emmons was awaiting the results of an MRI on Monday after leaving Sunday's game with a pectoral injury. Coach Tom Coughlin said, "We are waiting to see," when asked if the muscle was torn. Coughlin said the injury happened when Emmons extended to make a tackle, missed and had his arms "ripped through."

Toomer, Amani (New York Giants) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Amani Toomer caught a season-high eight catches Sunday, including the game winner in the final seconds of the game. It was his first game with more than four receptions all season as he has taken a supporting roll to WR Plaxico Burress and TE Jeremy Shockey. "It was hard, but it's hard to be upset when you're winning," Toomer said of his diminished role. "Our team was winning, we were doing well. Plax was having great success and you can't really be upset about somebody else doing well. You just wait for the flow of the offense, and hopefully now that I've made some plays, and we've both made plays together, I think that's how the whole team wanted to use us both together with Shockey and Tiki (Barber) as well."

Tuck, Justin (New York Giants) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Justin Tuck continues to receive increased playing time, something coach Tom Coughlin said has simply been earned and helps keep the entire line fresh. "We like to play -- we like to try and stay fresh and he was able to come in and make a couple of hard plays and provide solid pass rush," Coughlin said. "We do want to continue to try to utilize him."

Barber, Tiki (New York Giants) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Tiki Barber (19 carries, 86 yards), said Sunday's game was one of just a handful of comebacks that stuck in his mind as special. "You don't forget games like this one," he said. "We seem to be on a roll, and Elisha (Manning; he is always formal) is just playing out of sight."

Diehl, Dave (New York Giants) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LG David Diehl, who has started every game since becoming the team's fifth round pick in 2003, smiled happily and explained that he was 2-1 this weekend. Huh? "I'm from Chicago," he said, "and I went to (the University of) Illinois, so my college got killed by Penn State (63-10), but my White Sox won the first game of the World Series, and now this amazing comeback."

Manning, Eli (New York Giants) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Eli Manning has been praised for his poise in leading the Giants from 13 points down in the fourth quarter to win Sunday's game. "He certainly is a guy who keeps pretty much everything in perspective and when he comes to the sideline, he has good information," coach Tom Coughlin said. "He does have the ability to, as I said last week, to put some of the bad things behind him and go onto the next play and make the next play the most important play. I think he can pass that onto his teammates in critical situations where the pressure is on to have to perform in order to win. His teammates can take strength from the fact that he is poised, he is calm, and he is under control."

France, Todd (Philadelphia Eagles) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
K Todd France has made 6 of 7 field goal attempts since replacing injured David Akers. But with Akers expected to return sometime in the next couple of weeks, his days as an Eagles probably are numbered.

731 Akers, David (Philadelphia Eagles) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
K David Akers, who has missed the last three games with a torn hamstring, could return either this week against Denver or next week against Washington, according to head coach Andy Reid.

4062 Moats, Ryan (Philadelphia Eagles) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Ryan Moats, who was activated for the first time Sunday and returned kickoffs, suffered a concussion in the game. While he'll probably be healthy enough to play this week, it's uncertain whether he will. He fumbled both of his kickoff return attempts.

 

Upcoming Opponents:

Griese, Brian (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Brian Griese was placed on injured reserve with a torn ligament in his left knee. He will have surgery later this week.

Bolden, Juran (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Juran Bolden is nursing a separated shoulder and is likely to be questionable for Sunday's game at San Francisco.

Shepherd, Edell (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Edell Shepherd was arrested following the Bucs' win over Miami two weeks ago for battery on a law enforcement officer and operating an unregistered vehicle. Team officials say they are still gathering information about the incident and plan no sanctions at this time.

Abdullah, Hazma (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
S Hazma Abdullah was re-signed to the Bucs practice squad, reuniting all the Bucs' 2005 draft picks with the team.

Woodson, Charles (Oakland Raiders) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Charles Woodson suffered a broken left fibula and S Derrick Gibson a dislocated left wrist. Woodson will not need surgery. Gibson had surgery Monday morning to insert pins in his wrist.

Both will be out at least six to eight weeks, and Norv Turner said Monday their progress will be monitored. If they don't appear to be recovering in time for the final two to four games, they could be put on injured reserve.

"It completely changes what we're doing," Turner said. "But our guys certainly stepped up yesterday."

Jarrod Cooper, a special teams player who rarely plays on defense, was forced into action as a safety in the "Wolverine" alignment which was designed for Woodson.

"I can't even tell you how much we're going to miss Charles Woodson and Derrick Gibson," Cooper said. "I can't even express that. But everybody gets paid. Just step up and do the job, that's all we're asking."

Gibson, Derrick (Oakland Raiders) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
S Derrick Gibson a dislocated left wrist and CB Charles Woodson suffered a broken left fibula. Woodson will not need surgery. Gibson had surgery Monday morning to insert pins in his wrist.

Both will be out at least six to eight weeks, and Norv Turner said Monday their progress will be monitored. If they don't appear to be recovering in time for the final two to four games, they could be put on injured reserve.

"It completely changes what we're doing," Turner said. "But our guys certainly stepped up yesterday."

Jarrod Cooper, a special teams player who rarely plays on defense, was forced into action as a safety in the "Wolverine" alignment which was designed for Woodson.

"I can't even tell you how much we're going to miss Charles Woodson and Derrick Gibson," Cooper said. "I can't even express that. But everybody gets paid. Just step up and do the job, that's all we're asking."

Janikowski, Sebastian (Oakland Raiders) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
K Sebastian Janikowski had a field goal and four extra points and has 587 points, passing Marcus Allen for fifth on the Raiders' all-time scoring list.

Anderson, Courtney (Oakland Raiders) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
TE Courtney Anderson, for the second time this season, was not the intended target of a single pass. After catching 5 passes for a career-high 100 yards in a Week 3 loss to Philadelphia, Anderson has 4 catches for 46 yards in his last three games. He had two penalties against Buffalo (one illegal motion, one holding penalty).

Foschi, John Paul (Oakland Raiders) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
FB John Paul Foschi, a converted tight end inactive since a Week 2 knee injury against Kansas City, caught the first two passes of his career for 11 yards on checkdowns from QB Kerry Collins.

Sapp, Warren (Oakland Raiders) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DT Warren Sapp had his second sack of the season and several pressures of Buffalo quarterback Kelly Holcomb. He was awarded one of three game balls, along with defensive tackle Ted Washington and safety Renaldo Hill, and Norv Turner said it was his best game as a Raider.

Last Opponent:

Hicks, Maurice (San Francisco 49ers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
KR Maurice Hicks had plenty of chances Sunday, but he was unable to break any kind of long returns. He had eight kickoff returns for a lowly 16.6-yard average. The 49ers' average starting point after kickoffs was the 27-yard line.

Lloyd, Brandon (San Francisco 49ers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Brandon Lloyd is the team's leading receiver with 19 catches for 369 yards and three touchdowns. Last year through the first six games, tight end Eric Johnson had 45 catches for 484 yards. In fact, Lloyd's numbers would have ranked him fourth last year through six games.

Lee, Andy (San Francisco 49ers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
P Andy Lee, whose 96 punts last year were just one of the team record for a season, has attempted 36 punts through six games. He is on pace to equal the number of punts he had last year.

Smith, Alex (San Francisco 49ers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Alex Smith had a rough time, but he showed some improvement over his first NFL starting assignment. Against the Colts, Smith had five turnovers with four interceptions and one lost fumble. On Sunday, he had one interception and one lost fumble against the Redskins. Despite 47 fewer passing attempts this season than Tim Rattay, Smith has been sacked 12 times this season. Rattay was sacked 10 times before getting traded to the Buccaneers last week.

Gore, Frank (San Francisco 49ers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Frank Gore has been the 49ers' best rookie, and he could be setting himself up for a solid second half of the season. Gore gained 89 yards on nine carries with a 72-yard TD run late in the game. Gore is getting nearly half the touches as starter Kevan Barlow, gaining 198 yards on 34 carries for a 5.8 average.

 

Fantasy/General:

Baxter, Gary (Cleveland Browns) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Gary Baxter had surgery on Monday to repair a torn pectoral muscle, and will be lost for the season. The team's biggest free agent-signing started five games in Cleveland after starting 46 in a row for Baltimore. Baxter signed a six-year, $30 million contract with the Browns in the off-season. The deal included a $10.5 million signing bonus. Leigh Bodden figures to replace Baxter.

Johnson, Kevin (Detroit Lions) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Kevin Johnson, who leads the Lions injury-depleted receiving corps with 17 receptions for 133 yards, has been lost for the season with a ruptured right Achilles tendon. Johnson was injured in the Lions' game Sunday at Cleveland and will require surgery to repair the damage.

Green, Ahman (Green Bay Packers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Ahman Green will miss the remainder of the 2005 campaign because of a ruptured tendon in his right quadriceps. Green sustained the injury with about eight minutes left in the fourth quarter of the 23-20 loss at Minnesota on Sunday. He will undergo surgery later this week. Green is the fourth player on offense -- and the second running back -- the 1-5 Packers have lost to a season-ending injury. The four-time Pro Bowl halfback started Sunday's game at less than 100 percent. He had strained the same tendon in the quad and suffered a bruised right knee during the Oct. 3 defeat at Carolina. Green missed the next game before the Packers had the bye on the schedule. "This (injury) is significant enough to keep him out the rest of the season," head coach Mike Sherman said. "My understanding is that he'll be ready to go next year."

Moss, Randy (Oakland Raiders) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Randy Moss, who suffered a bruised ribs, a groin strain and a pelvic bruise the previous week against San Diego, was listed as "doubtful" all week before playing on Sunday. Only in rare instances have Raiders players listed as "doubtful" ended up playing on Sunday.

"Wednesday, I would have said he was very, very doubtful," coach Norv Turner said. "I thought Friday there was a chance, but Saturday morning I would have said no. He went out Sunday morning and said he was excited about the way he felt, so we plotted out a plan how we'd use him."

Moss may not be full strength against Tennessee this Sunday, but sitting out the second half against Buffalo while the Raiders ran the ball and worked the clock prevented further injury.

"Randy is no worse than he was," Turner said. "I think each day he'll continue getting better."

 

Short, Brandon (Carolina Panthers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Jason Short missed Sunday's game with a high ankle sprain. He'll likely be sidelined for at least a couple of more weeks.

Maynard, Brad (Chicago Bears) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
P Brad Maynard, questionable for the game with a strained right calf, kicked seven times for a mediocre 35.9-yard net average, but two of his punts were downed inside the Ravens' 10-yard line.

Peppers, Julius (Carolina Panthers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Julius Peppers did not practice on Monday because of a broken bone in his hand, but said he will practice Wednesday, and said there's no way the injury will keep him out Sunday. Peppers said he broke the bone in the middle finger near the base of the hand.

Foster, DeShaun (Carolina Panthers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB DeShaun Foster did not practice again Monday. He has missed the last two weeks of work because of a knee injury.

Smith, Steve (Carolina Panthers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Steve Smith is hoping to continue his torrid pace after the bye week. Smith has 39 receptions for 596 yards and seven touchdowns through six games and could be headed to his second Pro Bowl, but his first as a receiver. Smith made it as a return man as a rookie in 2001.

Morgan, Dan (Carolina Panthers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Dan Morgan was back at practice on Monday wearing a shoulder harness to protect his dislocated shoulder. Morgan hopes to play Sunday against the Vikings.

Morris, Sammy (Miami Dolphins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Sammy Morris continues to receive snaps as a third-down back, even with Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown on the same roster. Morris played for five snaps in last Friday's 30-20 loss to Kansas City.

McDougle, Stockar (Miami Dolphins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RT Stockar McDougle was benched in favor of Vernon Carey for the Chiefs game because of his penchant for penalties. McDougle committed five infractions, two of which were declined, the previous game against Tampa Bay.

Carter, Kevin (Miami Dolphins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Kevin Carter suffered a calf injury against Kansas City and failed to log a tackle.

Bell, Yeremiah (Miami Dolphins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
Yeremiah Bell failed to do an effective job helping Miami contain TE Tony Gonzalez, who finished with seven catches for 67 yards.

Taylor, Jason (Miami Dolphins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Jason Taylor reportedly is playing with a left heel injury (plantar fasciitis). He missed two days of practice but still played against Kansas City, finishing with seven tackles. "It's still attached, and I made it through," said Taylor, who was injured in an October 16 game at Tampa Bay. "It's painful, but it'll be all right. We talked about it all week whether playing would hurt it worse. Of course, having a Friday night game threw us a curve ball, but I'll rest it and we'll see how it is next week. It'll be fine."

Seymour, Richard (New England Patriots) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Richard Seymour, who missed the last two games before the bye week, wants to suit up after the bye. "I expect to be there," Seymour said. "Definitely."

Davis, Andre (New England Patriots) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Andre' Davis, who was re-signed on Oct. 19, could take over the No. 3 receiver spot from Troy Brown, who is nursing a foot injury. Brown missed the Patriots' last game before the bye week.

Davis, Don (New England Patriots) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Don Davis could see time at safety, given the injuries to Rodney Harrison, Guss Scott and James Sanders. Harrison and Scott are out for the year.

Poole, Tyrone (New England Patriots) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Tyrone Poole was on crutches last week, his rehabbing of an ankle injury having hit a snag. Poole, who hasn't played since Week 1, had been practicing and had sounded confident that he could return soon. However, coach Bill Belichick told a radio interviewer that Poole hadn't made the necessary progress and that the team's medical staff felt that the injury needed "time to quiet down."

Dilfer, Trent (Cleveland Browns) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Trent Dilfer has struggled since throwing for 336 yards against Green Bay. In the past three weeks, Dilfer has thrown for 218, 147 and 73 yards. He has accounted for eight turnovers in those three games (two fumbles, six interceptions). And his rating for those three games has been 51.18 -- with a low of 22.4 Sunday against Detroit. Coach Romeo Crennel said he has not thought of removing Dilfer for rookie Charlie Frye, but he added that the offense has to improve. "We haven't executed very well for the last three games," Crennel said. "We have to try to get that fixed."

Droughns, Reuben (Cleveland Browns) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Reuben Droughns had the first 100-yard game by a Browns back this season when he ran 19 times for 100 yards against Detroit. Most of Droughns' yards came in the first half, though, as Droughns ran for 83 yards in the first two periods.

Parker, Willie (Pittsburgh Steelers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Willie Parker, with 539 yards rushing, is more than halfway to becoming the Steelers' first 1,000-yard rusher since Jerome Bettis ran for 1,072 yards in 2001. If he keeps it up, he would become the first back other than Bettis to gain 1,000 yards since Barry Foster set the team record with 1,690 in 1992.

Wilson, Cedrick (Pittsburgh Steelers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Cedrick Wilson, the Steelers' lone UFA signing this year, did not have a catch Sunday, and has only two receptions in his past three games, for 33 yards. He also has a broken bone and a torn ligament in his right wrist.

Hope, Chris (Pittsburgh Steelers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
S Chris Hope ended Carson Palmer's streak of 169 passes without an interception. His second interception of the season and one fumble recovery are two more turnovers than he produced in 2004, his first season as a starter.

Miller, Heath (Pittsburgh Steelers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
TE Heath Miller has 16 receptions and scored four touchdowns, second among receivers in both categories to Hines Ward, who has 21 and five.

James, Edgerrin (Indianapolis Colts) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Edgerrin James has taken over the NFL rushing lead after his 139-yard performance at Houston Sunday. James now has 801 yards on 163 carries and has scored seven touchdowns. He is averaging 4.9 yards per carry this season. James also leads the league in yards from scrimmage (973) and is tied for third in total touchdowns with eight.

Mathis, Robert (Indianapolis Colts) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Robert Mathis continues to lead the league in sacks. Mathis has netted eight sacks this season and set a franchise-record with his seventh-straight game with a sack.

June, Cato (Indianapolis Colts) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Cato June remains the NFL leader with five interceptions this season. June did not have an interception in the Colts' win over Houston.

Sanders, Bob (Indianapolis Colts) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
S Bob Sanders was able to return to Sunday's game after suffering a wrist/forearm injury midway through the second quarter. The injury was first thought to be related to a strained bicep he initially incurred at San Francisco three weeks ago.

Jefferson, Joseph (Indianapolis Colts) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
S Joseph Jefferson appears to be very close to returning to playing for the Colts. Jefferson incurred a turf toe injury in the season-opener at Baltimore and has not played since. He could have played at Houston on Sunday, but was held out.

Tripplett, Larry (Indianapolis Colts) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DT Larry Tripplett may be available for the Patriots' game in two weeks. Tripplett has been bothered by a high ankle sprain and has been held out of practice.

Bailey, Champ (Denver Broncos) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Champ Bailey allowed a touchdown and was called for three penalties against the Giants. But he felt that Burress got away with a good deal of pushing and shoving during the game and was only called for one offensive penalty. And on the play Burress was called for offensive pass interference, safety John Lynch was also flagged for pass interference and the penalties canceled each other out.

"It was very frustrating," Bailey said. "That's the way it goes sometimes. We're in their backyard so things are definitely going to go their way more than ours."

Broncos coach Mike Shanahan said he disagreed with some of the calls against Bailey, but he was adamant that those calls weren't what cost the Broncos a win.

"There's not one call in that game that was a deciding factor," Shanahan said. "There wasn't. You lose a game like that, you can go back to 10 plays on offense and 10 on defense."

The best news for Bailey was that he got through the game with no more problems to his hamstring. Bailey missed two games and was pulled in the third quarter against New England because of his injured left hamstring.

"I held up pretty decent," Bailey said.

Bailey will likely be matched up against Philadelphia's Terrell Owens this week.

Rogers, Shaun (Detroit Lions) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DT Shaun Rogers has a strained MCL in his right knee and will probably be on a week-to-week basis, Lions coach Steve Mariucci said Monday. Rogers was hurt in the 13-10 victory Sunday at Cleveland. He was sore Monday, and there is doubt regarding how soon he might be able to return to practice.

Bly, Dre (Detroit Lions) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Dre' Bly could be facing surgery to repair damage done to his right wrist in the Lions' game Sunday at Cleveland. Bly had bones dislocated and left the game in the second half. The surgery -- if necessary -- probably would not be season-ending, but would require him to play with his right hand in a cast of some sort. Bly, a two-time Pro Bowler, had four interceptions in the last three games.

Garcia, Jeff (Detroit Lions) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Jeff Garcia said he had some soreness, but nothing extreme or severe after playing Sunday in the Lions' 13-10 victory at Cleveland. It was Garcia's first appearance since suffering a broken left fibula and badly sprained left ankle in the Sept. 2 preseason finale at Buffalo.

Backus, Jeff (Detroit Lions) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LT Jeff Backus, who played in the Lions' 13-10 victory Sunday at Cleveland despite a sprained ankle, was feeling considerable discomfort in the ankle Monday, but he apparently did no additional damage. Backus did not practice last week until Friday, and he might be facing the same situation this week, but it appears he will try to play in the game against Chicago next Sunday.

Oben, Roman (San Diego Chargers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LT Roman Oben signed a contract extension which goes through the 2008 season.

Flanagan, Mike (Green Bay Packers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
OC Mike Flanagan is slated to return to practice Wednesday after recovering from Oct. 5 surgery to repair a sports hernia. "Hopefully, he'll be ready to go this week. (But) no guarantee on that," head coach Mike Sherman said of Flanagan's status for Sunday. Scott Wells started in Flanagan's place the last two games.

Collins, Nick (Green Bay Packers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
FS Nick Collins will be questionable for the game Sunday because of a bruised left quadriceps. He underwent an MRI on Monday afternoon. The starter missed most of the second half with the injury. Fellow rookie Marviel Underwood replaced Collins.

Jenkins, Cullen (Green Bay Packers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DT Cullen Jenkins also is a question mark for the next game because of a strained calf, which he sustained late in the fourth quarter. Sherman said Jenkins will be "limited" in practice this week. Corey Williams would be the logical choice to replace Jenkins in the starting lineup.

Thomas, Robert (Green Bay Packers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
OLB Robert Thomas, the starter on the weak side, suffered a shoulder "stinger" early in the fourth quarter but returned to finish the game.

Horton, Jason (Green Bay Packers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Jason Horton injured his shoulder in the game, and the backup underwent an MRI on Monday.

Leach, Vonta (Green Bay Packers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
FB Vonta Leach sustained a shoulder "stinger" early in the fourth quarter, but later returned to complete the game.

Ross, Oliver (Arizona Cardinals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
OT Oliver Ross is at least another week away from returning from a broken right hand that's caused him to miss three games. Fred Wakefield has replaced him in the starting lineup.

Okeafor, Chike (Arizona Cardinals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Chike Okeafor played his best game of the season, finishing with two sacks.

McCown, Josh (Arizona Cardinals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Josh McCown suffered a bruised left hand and a sprained left ankle, but he finished the game and is expected to play Sunday in Dallas.

Warfield, Eric (Kansas City Chiefs) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Eric Warfield, who was told just prior to kickoff in Miami that he would make his first start since returning from his four-game league suspension, played well enough in the absence of injured replacement starter Dexter McCleon that he will start again Sunday in San Diego, coach Dick Vermeil said Monday.

Parker, Samie (Kansas City Chiefs) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Samie Parker, a starter in just his second NFL season, is expected to miss a second straight game this week in San Diego. Parker has a knee injury the Chiefs think will heal without surgery, but he was securing a second opinion on Monday after he missed the Miami game.

McGee, Terrence (Buffalo Bills) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB/KR Terrence McGee injured his right leg in the second half of Sunday's game against Oakland. His status for this week's game at New England will be updated on Wednesday, coach Mike Mularkey said, but he felt the NFL's leading kick returner would be fine to play.

Villarrial, Chris (Buffalo Bills) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
OG Chris Villarrial suffered a minor concussion against the Raiders, but should be fine for this weekend's game at New England.

Dyson, Andre (Seattle Seahawks) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Andre Dyson is expected to return from a hamstring injury after the bye week.

Jurevicius, Joe (Seattle Seahawks) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------

Thomas, Dontarrious (Minnesota Vikings) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Dontarrious Thomas, whom the Vikings use in their nickel defense, hopes to return Sunday after missing the Green Bay game because of a bruised right shoulder.

Burleson, Nate (Minnesota Vikings) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Nate Burleson, who caught three passes Sunday after missing three games because of a sprained left knee, said he received treatment Monday and felt "pretty good."

Smoot, Fred (Minnesota Vikings) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Fred Smoot did such a good job on Packers receiver Donald Driver in the second half Sunday that it wouldn't be surprising to see Smoot assigned to more No. 1 receivers regardless of where they line up. Driver had six receptions in the first half and only two in the second with Smoot on him.

Williams, Moe (Minnesota Vikings) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------

Young, Brian (New Orleans Saints) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DT Brian Young sustained a plantar fascia injury to his foot during Sunday's game with the Rams, but returned by the end of the contest. He will be questionable for this week.

Horn, Joe (New Orleans Saints) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------
SLB James Allen was placed on injured reserve Saturday after being bothered most of the season by hamstring and knee injuries.

Meier, Shad (New Orleans Saints) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
TE Shad Meier, who had knee surgery in early August, was sidelined for the seventh consecutive game and his return is uncertain.

Bulger, Marc (St. Louis Rams) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Marc Bulger threw for the first time Monday since injuring his shoulder Oct. 17 against the Colts and felt "pretty good," according to interim coach Joe Vitt. Bulger has a chance to play Sunday against Jacksonville.

Terrell, Claude (St. Louis Rams) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LG Claude Terrell spent Sunday night in the hospital after suffering a sprained neck against the Saints Sunday. An MRI was negative, but Terrell was "stiff and sore" Monday, according to interim coach Joe Vitt.

Johnson, Chris (St. Louis Rams) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------

Holt, Torry (St. Louis Rams) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Torry Holt has more than a bruised knee, as was originally announced. Holt has a sprained PCL, and missed Sunday's game. His status for next week is unknown.

Reed, Ed (Baltimore Ravens) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
SS Ed Reed is walking around with a protective boot and is considered doubtful to play against the Steelers. He has a high ankle sprain. He would be replaced by Chad Williams.

Lewis, Ray (Baltimore Ravens) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Ray Lewis is not expected to play against the Steelers because of a low hamstring injury. He would be replaced by Bart Scott.

Scott, Bart (Baltimore Ravens) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Bart Scott could start in place of Ray Lewis, who has a low hamstring injury.

Clayton, Mark (Baltimore Ravens) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Mark Clayton has the best chance to start of the Ravens' injured players. He has a sprained ankle.

Weaver, Anthony (Baltimore Ravens) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Anthony Weaver likely will miss another game with a toe injury.

Taylor, Chester (Baltimore Ravens) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Chester Taylor got fewer opportunities, despite being the Ravens' most effective running back. He had two carries -- both in the first half -- and gained 21 yards.

Wiegert, Zach (Houston Texans) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RG Zach Wiegert will not practice Wednesday because of his high ankle sprain.

Davis, Domanick (Houston Texans) (10/24/2005)

RB Domanick Davis sprained his wrist and will be limited in practice Wednesday.

Babin, Jason (Houston Texans) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------

Brown, Ceandris (Houston Texans) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB C.C. Brown missed a start because of a knee injury, but did see limited action. He should be full-go in practice this week.

Taylor, Fred (Jacksonville Jaguars) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Fred Taylor, who sat out the Pittsburgh game before the bye week with a sprained ankle, said he'll be ready to return for the game in St. Louis Sunday.

Williams, Mo (Jacksonville Jaguars) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RT Mo Williams, who suffered a calf injury late in the Pittsburgh game and said he couldn't have returned if the game had gone into overtime, will return to play in St. Louis, according to coach Jack Del Rio.

McNair, Steve (Tennessee Titans) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Steve McNair is expected back on the practice field Wednesday, and coach Jeff Fisher said he expects the veteran quarterback to return to the huddle against Oakland on Sunday. McNair didn't travel to Arizona with the team, as he rehabilitated his lower back and saved himself two cross-country flights.

Volek, Billy (Tennessee Titans) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Billy Volek started in place of Steve McNair (back) in Arizona, but didn't finish the game because of a concussion he suffered on a sack and a strip by linebacker Karlos Dansby. Coach Jeff Fisher reported that Volek was fine on Monday.

Jones, Brandon (Tennessee Titans) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Brandon Jones suffered a right knee injury in Arizona and the Titans categorized test results as "positive." But his status for Sunday's game against Oakland is in doubt.

Brown, Chris (Tennessee Titans) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Chris Brown was knocked out of the game for the second time this season on a hit that left him with numbness in his right hand and forced a costly fumble. Coach Jeff Fisher said the feeling was returning, and that the injury was to the brachial plexus, a network of nerves that runs down the arm.

Williams, Madieu (Cincinnati Bengals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
FS Madieu Williams' season might be over. The second-year Bengals safety, one of the team's surest tacklers, is out of the Green Bay game Sunday because of a shoulder injury. It will be the fourth game he has missed this season after injuring the shoulder during a non-contact Friday practice before the Houston game. Asked if Williams' injury were season-ending, coach Marvin Lewis said, "Possibly. Well, we've been playing without him for most of the year. Obviously, he is a good player for us. But we've been playing without him, and we'll move on." In Williams' absence, Kevin Kaesviharn has moved to free safety, and Ifeanyi Ohalete plays strong safety. Ohalete missed a tackle on Willie Parker's 37-yard touchdown run Sunday for the Steelers.

Ghiaciuc, Eric (Cincinnati Bengals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
OC Eric Ghiaciuc (ankle) is questionable for the Packers on Sunday.

Pollack, David (Cincinnati Bengals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB David Pollack (sprained knee) is questionable for the Packers.

Palmer, Carson (Cincinnati Bengals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Carson Palmer has a bruised left shoulder and was listed as probable for Green Bay. "It's nothing serious, just a little sore from the game," said Palmer.

Ratliff, Keiwan (Cincinnati Bengals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Keiwan Ratliff (hip pointer) is probable.

Stewart, Tony (Cincinnati Bengals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
TE Tony Stewart (back) is probable.

Muhammad, Muhsin (Chicago Bears) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Muhsin Muhammad did not lead the Bears in receiving yardage Sunday for the first time this season. Muhammad, who was frequently doubled, had season lows of three catches and 39 yards.

Bradley, Mark (Chicago Bears) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Mark Bradley had the most productive day of his rookie season with four catches for 37 yards. His numbers could have been much better, but he was overthrown on a couple deep balls after he had beaten the coverage.

Benson, Cedric (Chicago Bears) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Cedric Benson continues to be an afterthought in the Bears' offense. The fourth overall pick in the 2005 draft had two carries for six yards.

Wade, Bobby (Chicago Bears) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Bobby Wade, the NFL's leading punt returner with a 14.7-yard average entering the game, had three returns for 34 yards, an 11.3-yard average.

Mitchell, Jeff (Carolina Panthers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
OC Jeff Mitchell is one of Carolina's five offensive linemen to start all six games this season. The Panthers have suffered no injuries on the offensive line this year.

McIntosh, Damion (Miami Dolphins) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LT Damion McIntosh committed two of his team's four penalties against Kansas City.

Samuel, Asante (New England Patriots) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------
OLB Willie McGinest has a team-high 2.5 sacks.

Dwight, Tim (New England Patriots) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Tim Dwight and TE Daniel Graham are tied for the team lead with two touchdown catches each, even though they have combined for just 15 receptions.

Graham, Daniel (New England Patriots) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
TE Daniel Graham and WR Tim Dwight are tied for the team lead with two touchdown catches each, even though they have combined for just 15 receptions.

Cribbs, Joshua (Cleveland Browns) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
KR Joshua Cribbs became the fifth rookie in Browns history to return a kickoff for a touchdown. Cribbs' 90-yard return was the only touchdown the Browns had against Detroit.

Bryant, Antonio (Cleveland Browns) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Antonio Bryant lamented a key drop of a third-down pass in the fourth period that may have moved the Browns at least into position to tie the game. But Bryant has had key drops the past two weeks, and he'll never be considered a top-level receiver.

Roye, Orpheus (Cleveland Browns) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Orpheus Roye recovered a fumble in the loss to Detroit, giving the Browns a streak of 19 games in a row with a takeaway. That number ties for the league high.

Northcutt, Dennis (Cleveland Browns) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Dennis Northcutt had 27 yards in punt returns, giving him 1,570 in his career. That figure is the highest in Browns history.

von Oelhoffen, Kimo (Pittsburgh Steelers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Kimo von Oelhoffen sacked QB Chris Palmer and tipped a pass that turned into an interception for Aaron Smith. At 34, von Oelhoffen is still playing at the top of his game.

Manning, Peyton (Indianapolis Colts) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Peyton Manning is second in the league in pass completion percentage (68.1) and third in passing efficiency (98.3) through the first seven weeks of the season.

Wayne, Reggie (Indianapolis Colts) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Reggie Wayne has caught 22 passes over the past three weeks. Wayne is currently tied for the team receiving lead with WR Marvin Harrison, each with 37 receptions.

Foster, George (Denver Broncos) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
OT George Foster took a damaging holding penalty against Giants DE Michael Strahan in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss. That penalty wiped out an 11-yard run and moved the Broncos back, and Jason Elam missed a 49-yard field goal a few plays later that would have given Denver a nine-point lead.

Watts, Darius (Denver Broncos) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Darius Watts was deactivated against the Giants, in part because he doesn't play special teams. Watts has fallen far down the depth chart and it will be tough for him to get back into the rotation at wide receiver.

Devoe, Todd (Denver Broncos) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Todd Devoe was active instead of Darius Watts against the Giants. Devoe was a longshot in training camp that made the team and the coaches are happy with how he works and plays special teams.

Walls, Lenny (Denver Broncos) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Lenny Walls suffered a groin injury against the Giants. The Broncos won't know until later in the week if he will play against Philadelphia.

Brown, Courtney (Denver Broncos) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Courtney Brown is playing well despite the elbow brace he continues to wear. Brown dislocated his elbow early in training camp. Brown said his elbow injury hasn't affected his play.

Tomlinson, LaDainian (San Diego Chargers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB LaDainian Tomlinson couldn't recall when he was bottled up the way he was in Philadelphia, rushing for a career-low 7 yards on 17 carries. "Off the top of my head, I really don't know," he said. "I will say it's been a while since it's been like that."

Neal, Lorenzo (San Diego Chargers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
FB Lorenzo Neal said the Chargers' knack for losing leads in the fourth quarter of all four losses is giving the team a reputation it doesn't embrace. "What I see is that teams are now saying that they know who we are and we just have to learn to finish," he said.

Florence, Drayton (San Diego Chargers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Drayton Florence is anticipating playing on Sunday. He has missed the past two games with an ankle sprain.

Merriman, Shawne (San Diego Chargers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Shawne Merriman had his first NFL start in Philadelphia and did nothing to hurt his cause of holding on to it over Ben Leber.

Davis, Sammy (San Diego Chargers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Sammy Davis (bruised ribs) will likely have his practice time compromised this week and could miss Sunday's game. If Davis and Drayton Florence are ailing, Jamar Fletcher would start.

Brees, Drew (San Diego Chargers) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Drew Brees had to face a number of blitzes, and it showed in his completion percentage as he often just dumped the ball on hot reads before the receivers had turned to look. But the offensive line had trouble with protections; it gave up only two sacks, but Brees was pressured into one interception because of the rush.

Moore, Langston (Arizona Cardinals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DT Langston Moore replaced the injured Calvin Pace in the team's five-man front. Moore played fairly well, making three tackles.

Arrington, J.J. (Arizona Cardinals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB J.J. Arrington showed the big-play ability that prompted the team to take him in the second round of last April's draft. Arrington had a 32-yard run and nearly broke it for a touchdown. However, he finished with 30 yards.

Boldin, Anquan (Arizona Cardinals) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Anquan Boldin didn't catch a pass last week for first time in 32 NFL games. "It was nothing they did. We were prepared," Boldin said. "It was just the mistakes that we made, whether it be route-running or protections or whatever."

Tynes, Lawrence (Kansas City Chiefs) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
K Lawrence Tynes, who kicked the two longest field goals of his short NFL career from 51 and 52 yards against Miami, credited the weather and the playing field at Dolphins Stadium with an assist on his career night.

Kicking in heat and humidity is something Tynes had gotten used to at Troy State in Alabama.

"In college, our punter's dad nicknamed us "The Swamp Kickers," so I'm used to this kind of weather," Tynes said.

"And I was kicking on the best field I've ever played on, bar none. It's a fairly new surface from what Olindo (Mare, the Miami kicker) was telling me. The ball set up well on the field, and the plant was good. It was like hitting from the fairway."

Tynes has mad a nice recovery from the days late in training camp when his preseason misses had coach Dick Vermeil threatening to find another kicker. But instead of being worried, Tynes made a statement designed to bolster his own confidence.

"I said I was going to be one of the best kickers in the NFL, and I believe that," Tynes repeated after his three field goal night against Miami raised his conversion rate to 12 of 14 field goals this year. "I'm not going to back down from what I said."

Holmes, Priest (Kansas City Chiefs) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
RB Priest Holmes matched his season-long run of 35 yards when he went that distance for a third-quarter touchdown that countered a 65-yard TD run by Miami's Ronnie Brown just 41 seconds earlier.

Gonzalez, Tony (Kansas City Chiefs) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
TE Tony Gonzalez, after being limited to just five catches in his previous three games, had his best game this year with a seven-catch, 67-yard effort against Miami. Gonzalez, however, is still looking for his first trip to the end zone.

Green, Trent (Kansas City Chiefs) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Trent Green started hot in hitting 7 of his first 9 passes for 95 yards against Miami. Included in that run was a 50-yard bomb to Chris Horn as part of a first-series touchdown drive in which Green hit four straight passes for 69 yards. But Green then battled a 1-of-7 slump before rallying later to complete 20 of 34 throws for 289 yards while spreading the ball around to nine different receivers.

 

Holcomb, Kelly (Buffalo Bills) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Kelly Holcomb is now 6-10 as a starting quarterback in the NFL after his personal three-game win streak was snapped with Sunday's loss at Oakland. His passer rating was 110.0, the fifth time he's gone over the 100 mark.

Reed, Josh (Buffalo Bills) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Josh Reed's fifth career TD catch against Oakland was his third on the road.

Shelton, Daimon (Buffalo Bills) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
FB Daimon Shelton's run on fourth-and-goal at the Raiders 1-yard line was his first carry in five seasons. The last time he ran the ball was a one-yard run while playing for Jacksonville at Indianapolis on Sept. 25, 2000. Shelton was stopped for no gain on Sunday.

Lindell, Rian (Buffalo Bills) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
K Rian Lindell has moved to 132nd place on the NFL's all-time scoring list with 514 points. He passed Tommy McDonald (510) and Mark Clayton (510) on Sunday with a field goal and two PATS.

Schobel, Aaron (Buffalo Bills) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
DE Aaron Schobel's sack against the Raiders was his third of the season, giving him 37.5 for his Bills career. He needs one to tie Darryl Talley for fifth on the club's all-time list.

Hackett, D.J. (Seattle Seahawks) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR D.J. Hackett was banged up during the game Sunday, but he should return after the bye week.

Edinger, Paul (Minnesota Vikings) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
K Paul Edinger's 56-yard field goal as time ran out Sunday was the second-longest game-winning field goal in NFL history, behind only Tom Dempsey's 63-yarder for New Orleans in 1970.

Fason, Ciatrick (Minnesota Vikings) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
Ciatrick Fason was active on Sunday, and would have been used in third-and-1 situations if the Vikings had had any.

Booker, Fred (New Orleans Saints) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Fred Booker, a first-year player, was signed from the practice squad to take Allen's spot on the 53-man roster.

Thompson, Dominique (St. Louis Rams) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Dominique Thompson was the team's fourth receiver Sunday with Tory Holt and Isaac Bruce out. An un-drafted free agent, Thompson had a reception for 13 yards, his first NFL catch.

Williams, Chad (Baltimore Ravens) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
SS Chad Williams is expected to start with Ed Reed recovering from a high ankle sprain.

Wright, Anthony (Baltimore Ravens) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
QB Anthony Wright didn't throw an interception in a game for the first time this season. He seemed more conservative with his throws, tossing the ball out of bounds when no one was open.

Peterson, Mike (Jacksonville Jaguars) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
LB Mike Peterson leads the team with 69 tackles, including 34 solo tackles, after the first six games. He also has two interceptions.

Smith, Jimmy (Jacksonville Jaguars) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Jimmy Smith tops the team with 23 receptions after six games and has 404 yards and four touchdowns.

Wilford, Ernest (Jacksonville Jaguars) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Ernest Wilford has just nine catches, but two are for touchdowns.

Mathis, Rashean (Jacksonville Jaguars) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
CB Rashean Mathis is tied for the team lead in interceptions with Mike Peterson with two.

Calico, Tyrone (Tennessee Titans) (10/24/2005)

----------------------------------------------------------
WR Tyrone Calico led the Titans with six catches in Arizona, but managed only 51 yards, and didn't go get one deep ball that seemed like he could have pursued harder.
