MASH Unit: Offensive Players Injury Report

<b>QB:</b> <br><br> Miami Dolphins<br> QB A.J. Feeley's status for Sunday's game against Buffalo is unknown because of a rib injury.

Dolphins coach Dave Wannstedt said he would know more about Feeley's status by Wednesday's practice.

RB:

Minnesota Vikings
RB Michael Bennett (knee) won't play at New Orleans.

Minnesota Vikings
RB Moe Williams, who suited up Sunday but didn't play because of a calf injury, should be able to play at New Orleans. As long as rookie RB Mewelde Moore stays healthy, Williams' role will be as a third-down back who can pass protect.

Detroit Lions
RB Kevin Jones is moving into the second phase of his recovery from the high ankle sprain he suffered Sept. 26 against Philadelphia. He is expected to begin jogging this week, but it appears likely he will miss the game Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.

Denver Broncos
RB Tatum Bell was Reuben Droughns' backup on Sunday. He only got two carries for five yards. With Droughns establishing himself as a threat at tailback and Griffin likely to still see playing time, Bell will have a tough time making a major contribution as a rookie.

Denver Broncos
RB Garrison Hearst seems to be an odd man out of the Broncos running game. Hearst didn't play on Sunday even with Quentin Griffin out with an injury, and he could find himself inactive on game days when Griffin is healthy.

Miami Dolphins
RB Travis Minor could be active for the first time in four games Sunday at Buffalo. Minor hasn't played since a season-opening loss to Tennessee because of a sprained ankle.

WR:

Baltimore Ravens
WR Travis Taylor said he will "definitely" play for the Oct. 24 game against Buffalo. He has missed the past four games with a groin injury.

Kansas City Chiefs
WR Eddie Kennison, who missed the Chiefs' last two games with a hamstring injury, returned to practice for the first time in three weeks Monday when the Chiefs concluded their bye-week break and began preparations for Jacksonville.

Minnesota Vikings
WR Keenan Howry injured his right shoulder against Houston and could miss several weeks. His value is as a sure-handed punt returner. He isn't flashy, but he has never even come close to dropping a punt.

Detroit Lions
WR Roy Williams is being listed as day-to-day after suffering a sprained ankle in the Lions' 17-10 win Sunday at Atlanta. There was immediate concern that the injury might have been a high ankle sprain but an ultrasound examination revealed it to be a routine ankle sprain. A high ankle sprain generally means a longer recovery period. Williams leads Lions receivers with 20 receptions for 295 yards and four touchdowns.

Indianapolis Colts
WR-KR Brad Pyatt sprained his right ankle on the opening kickoff Sunday and did not play the rest of the game. Pyatt underwent an MRI Sunday, which was negative.

St. Louis Rams
WR Isaac Bruce suffered what was described as a mild concussion by coach Mike Martz late in the fourth quarter and tried to force his way onto the field in overtime. Afterward, Bruce said, "I don't have a concussion. I just got a little ... but I'm fine. I've got nothing. I'm ready to go." He caught six passes for 78 yards and had his four-game streak of 100-yard games broken.

Baltimore Ravens
WR Travis Taylor was sidelined for his fourth straight game with a groin injury. He is expected to return after next week's bye.

TE:

Baltimore Ravens
TE Todd Heap said he would be questionable for the Oct. 24 game against Buffalo. He has missed the past three games with a sprained ankle and has yet to run on it.

Kansas City Chiefs
TE Tony Gonzalez was pulled out of Monday's practice with a sore foot. He'll likely play against Jacksonville.

Philadelphia Eagles
TE L.J. Smith, who had 10 catches in the Eagles' first three games, didn't have a reception in the Eagles' last game against the Bears. He was playing with a shoulder contusion, which is much better after the bye-week rest.

Indianapolis Colts
TE Marcus Pollard did not play against the Raiders due to a bruised bone in his left knee. Pollard's availability for the Colts' Oct. 24 home game with Jacksonville will be determined later.

Baltimore Ravens
TE Todd Heap is expected to return after next week's bye. He has missed the past three games with a sprained ankle.

PK:

Indianapolis Colts
PK Mike Vanderjagt expects to be fine for Indianapolis' game with Jacksonville. Vanderjagt was held out of the Oakland game with a grade one hamstring strain

Miami Dolphins
K Olindo Mare's status for Sunday's game against Buffalo is unknown because of a strained calf. Dolphins coach Dave Wannstedt said he would know more about Mare's status by Wednesday's practice.
