Quarterback

1. Philip Rivers SD at STL
2. Peyton Manning IND at WAS
3. (prev. 13.) *Aaron Rodgers GB vs. MIA
Note: At minimum Rodgers (concussion) will miss some practice time this week. Matt Flynn is the backup if Rodgers can't play.
Update: Cleared by the team doctor and by an independent neurologist; he's very optimistic that he'll play. *** SUNDAY ACTIVE ***
4. Tom Brady NE vs. BAL
5. (prev. 8. *Jay Cutler CHI vs. SEA
Note: (Concussion) Cleared to begin practicing on Wednesday. If Cutler can't go, Caleb Hanie is probably ahead of Todd Collins after Collins' putrid performance against Carolina.
Update: No longer on the injury list. Minor upgrade here.
6. Eli Manning NYG vs. DET
7. Kyle Orton DEN vs. NYJ
8. Tony Romo DAL at MIN
9. Joe Flacco BAL at NE

14. *Ben Roethlisberger PIT vs. CLE
15. *Brett Favre MIN vs. DAL
Note: Frequently was holding his sore elbow late in Monday night's game.
Update: (Elbow) Limited Thursday, theoretically a game-time decision, though I'd be stunned if he doesn't play.
16. Josh Freeman TB vs. NO
17. *Donovan McNabb WAS vs. IND
Note: Tweaked his knee against the Packers but said that he'd be fine going forward.
18. *Kevin Kolb PHI vs. ATL
Note: Kolb played well against the Niners, but Michael Vick will get the start if healthy.
Update: Kolb took all the reps on Friday, though Vick could dress as the backup this week.
19. (prev. 24.) Chad Henne MIA at GB
20. Shaun Hill DET at NYG
Note: Matthew Stafford expected to be out this week again.
21. (prev. 27.) David Garrard JAC vs. TEN
Update: Has played much better recently, plus I like the matchup, so I'm giving him a modest upgrade.
22. Matt Ryan ATL at PHI
23. Matt Cassel KC at HOU
Note: Hurt by a couple of Dwayne Bowe drops against the Colts.
24. *Alex Smith SF vs. OAK
Note: Very nearly benched in favor of David Carr in the fourth quarter against Philly.

26. Sam Bradford STL vs. SD
Note: Had his worst performance of the year after losing Mark Clayton to an injury.
27. *Bruce Gradkowski OAK at SF
Note: Injured shoulder early in the win over the Chargers. He's still expected to start ahead of Jason Campbell.
Update: It now "looks like" Campbell and not Gradkowski will start.
28. *Colt McCoy CLE at PIT
Note: Making his NFL debut with both Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace hurt.

14. Matt Forte CHI vs. SEA
15. *LeSean McCoy PHI vs. ATL
Note: Ran well despite a cracked rib last week.
Update: Full participation in Thursday's practice, should play this week. Harrison coming aboard is a nice hedge for the Eagles, though.
16. (prev. 13.) *Ryan Mathews SD at STL
Note: Clearly was the better back against the Raiders last week, even though he didn't get the goal line love.
Update: Didn't practice on Wednesday but returned on Thursday.
17. *Michael Bush OAK at SF
Update: Even if McFadden plays, Bush will be the starter this week.

25. Marshawn Lynch SEA at CHI

31. Brandon Jacobs NYG vs. DET
32. *Brandon Jackson GB vs. MIA
33. *Chris Ivory NO at TB

35. (prev. 38.) *Knowshon Moreno DEN vs. NYJ

Update: Will make all three practices this week - looks like a good bet to play.
36. Cadillac Williams TB vs. NO
37. *Darren McFadden OAK at SF
Note: Sat out last week with the sore hamstring. His status for Week 6 hasn't yet been revealed.

Update: Likely to serve as a third-down back.
47. Chester Taylor CHI vs. SEA
48. (prev. 59.) *Mike Bell PHI vs. ATL
Update: Traded to the Browns, where he's "a better fit because of his downhill running style." Pardon the awful pun about Bell, but that explanation from Mangini rings a little hollow. Even still, the trade helps both backs, perhaps Bell more this week because of Hillis' injury.

52. Danny Woodhead NE vs. BAL
54. Kevin Smith DET at NYG
55. Darren Sproles SD at STL

66. Toby Gerhart MIN vs. DAL
67. Brian Westbrook SF vs. OAK
69. *James Davis CLE at PIT
Update: More time on the field with Harrison gone, or simply changing who he's third-string behind with Bell?
68. *Donald Brown IND at WAS
Note: (Hamstring) Participated in a "light practice" on Monday, but isn't yet a guarantee to play this week.
Update: Limited in Thursday's practice. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - DIDN'T TRAVEL WITH THE TEAM. ***
53. LeGarrette Blount TB vs. NO
*** SUNDAY INACTIVE ***.
49. (prev. 61.) *Jerome Harrison CLE at PIT
Update: Traded to the Eagles. I don't expect a huge difference for him this week, but suffice to say the trade can't possibly make him less valuable. *** SUNDAY INACTIVE ***
70. (prev. 37.) *Pierre Thomas NO at TB
Note: (Ankle) sat out again last week, and the signing of Julius Jones doesn't bode very well.
Update: Didn't practice Thursday - looking less likely to play again this week.
71. *Fred Taylor NE vs. BAL
Note: (Toe) Not on the field for Tuesday's practice.
Update: Still not practicing.

16. *Danny Amendola STL vs. SD
Note: Much bigger workload with Mark Clayton out for the year.
17. Steven Smith NYG vs. DET
18. Greg Jennings GB vs. MIA
Note: Thirsting for targets right now, though the injury to Finley should change that a little bit.

Note: Missed most of the second half with a sore shoulder and wouldn't have been able to practice on Monday had the Lions practiced.
