Matt Hasselbeck (Seahawks)
QB Matt Hasselbeck hopes to return from an elbow injury Sunday. The team
plans for Hasselbeck to start against the Falcons if his elbow improves.
Ken Dorsey (49ers)
QB Ken Dorsey will be back in the starting lineup for the 49ers'
regular-season finale against the Patriots. The 49ers on Sunday got
their first look at rookie Cody Pickett, who entered the game early in
the third quarter when Dorsey left the game with laceration on the
middle finger of his throwing hand.
John Navarre (Cardinals)
QB John Navarre still isn't throwing well after suffering a fractured
finger against Detroit three weeks ago. It's doubtful Navarre will be
active Sunday against Tampa Bay.
Josh McCown (Cardinals)
QB Josh McCown was limping after the game with an apparent injury to his
right leg. It's not expected to cause him to miss any time.
Brian Griese (Buccaneers)
QB Brian Griese has a right hip strain, is not expected to practice
until later this week and might not be able to play Sunday. Chris Simms
will step in if Griese is out. "We'll see the significance of the
injury. Obviously, if (Griese) is hurt, he can't play and Chris would be
the guy who would go," coach Jon Gruden said. "But I don't want to
speculate any further. We'll see how Brian feels here in the next couple
Michael Vick (Falcons)
QB Michael Vick is expected to play Sunday at Seattle after sitting out
the loss at New Orleans because of a sprained left shoulder.
"Absolutely. As I stand here today, it's my firm belief that he'll
play," coach Jim Mora said. "Something would have to transpire with his
shoulder that I don't foresee right now for him to stay off the field."
Billy Volek (Titans)
QB Billy Volek (bruised knee) could be limited early in the week with a
left knee contusion. But he's expected to start his eighth game of the
year in the Titans' season finale. "He has a significant bruise, but
there is really no damage," coach Jeff Fisher. "He does have some
swelling. He will be sore for a couple of days. We'll try and get him on
the practice field as soon as we can."
Byron Leftwich (Jaguars)
QB Byron Leftwich was obviously affected by the mild concussion he
suffered on the team's second series Sunday, coach Jack Del Rio said,
but he didn't second guess himself for waiting until late in the fourth
period to pull him for David Garrard. "Byron is our guy," he said and
added that it would have shown a lack of confidence in Leftwich to pull
him earlier. Del Rio said Leftwich passed tests that he was given by the
doctors Monday and he hopes he'll be able to play in Oakland although
he'll update his condition on Wednesday. Against Houston, Leftwich
completed only 6 of 14 passes for 35 yards and had one interception and
a 20.5 quarterback rating.
Carson Palmer (Bengals)
QB Carson Palmer will play Sunday at Philadelphia if he is healthy
enough, and Palmer said Monday that he expects to practice at least by
Thursday if not Wednesday. Palmer was listed as questionable for the
game against the Eagles, who took a 13-1 record into the Monday night
game at St. Louis.
