11/16 Player News

Redskins RB Ryan Torain(hamstring) will be visiting the doctor about this injury. He was expected to start last nights game before feeling some tightness and rookie Keiland Williams carried the load. Williams would be a RB2 in PPR leagues against the Titans if Torain were to sit out this week. Right now it doesn’t look good for the oft-injured Torain to go in Week 11. Stay Tuned.

Bears WR Johnny Knox(flu,ankle) practiced Tuesday and should be fine for this weeks game.

Chiefs rookie TE Tony Moeaki suffered a concussion during Sunday’s blow out loss to the Broncos. Stay tuned to us as we will monitor his test results to see if he can play this week.

Giants receiver Steve Smith(torn pectoral muscle) is expected to be out until early December, opening the door for Mario Manningham to have some big games during that stretch. 2nd year man Ramses Barden suffered a left foot injury during Sunday’s loss to the Cowboys and has been placed on IR. In a response move, they resigned WR Derek Hagans who will split #3 receiver duties with rookie Duke Calhoun.

Steelers cut K Jeff Reed today and signed former Redskin Kicker Shane Suisham. Reed, who missed a chip shot field goal Sunday against the Patriots has struggled all season.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that he expects WR Hines Ward(concussion) to play this week. Ward left Sunday’s loss early and ended his 186 consecutive game streak with at least one reception. It looks like he’ll start a new streak Sunday.

Cards RB Beanie Wells(knee) who was inactive Sunday, is believed to have healed up during the week off and is expected to return Week 11.

Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey(hamstring) is in serious danger of missing this weeks game. The bye week apparently didn’t help the injury heal and you should make other arrangements if he was someone you are relying on. His absense would allow week 9 Raider hero Jacoby Ford to draw another start.

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews(ankle) is still not 100% after the bye week and remains questionable for Sunday’s game.

Chargers WR Malcom Floyd(hamstring) returned to practice Monday and appears to be ready to go this week after missing the past few games. With Floyd returning as well as Vincent Jackson in week 12, Seyi Arijotutu and Patrick Crayton appear to have only one “valuable” week left in them so take advantage in week 11.

Antonio Gates(toe) still is not sure if he’ll play this week so stay tuned and be prepared to find another option in case he can’t go.

Bills rookie CJ Spiller(hamstring) is considered out indefinitely and Fred Jackson‘s value goes way up. Jackson posted 170 total yards and two touchdowns in Sunday’s win vs. the Lions.

Panthers QB Jimmy Clausen suffered a concussion Sunday and his week 11 status is up in the air. Fellow rookie QB Tony Pike would be next in line to start if Clausen can’t go.

Colts RB Joseph Addai(neck) is expected to return this week, but he’ll have to appear in practice at least once to guarantee. Addai’s return would be big  for the Colts especially since Donald Brown hasn’t shown anything.

Jets WR Jericho Cotchery(groin) is expected to miss at least two weeks after suffering a groin tear in Sunday’s come from behind win over the Browns.

Seahawks QB Matt Hasselback(wrist) is expected to start Sunday against the Saints.

The Saints are hoping to get Pierre Thomas(ankle) back on the practice field some time this week, but that remains very iffy. It’s more likely that we’ll see Thomas return to the field in Week 12 rather than this week. We’ll keep you posted on his status. Reggie Bush(leg) says he fully expects to play this week after missing the last eight weeks. I wouldn’t expect a huge workload from Bush even if he returns and Thomas does not as they will likely work him back into the mix slowly. Bush isn’t more than a flex starter at best for his first game back.
