Last updated November 14. * = check status (not necessarily injury status)

Note: Thursday Game - BAL at ATL

Quarterback

1. Eli Manning NYG vs. DAL
2. Peyton Manning IND vs. CIN
3. *Michael Vick PHI at WAS
4. Ryan Fitzpatrick BUF vs. DET
5. *Matt Schaub HOU at JAC
Note: Took a shot to the "lower gut" Sunday but x-rays checked out fine. Love the matchup, but the production hasn't really been there this year, perhaps because the running game has been going so good.
Update: (Ribs) Limited in practice Wednesday. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - OFFICIALLY A GO FOR SUNDAY. ***
6. Ben Roethlisberger PIT vs. NE
Note: Slow night on Monday, plus he lost two more offensive linemen with injuries.
Update: Starting left tackle Max Starks is out for the season.
7. David Garrard JAC vs. HOU
Note: Added job security with the team's release of Todd Bouman.
8. (prev. 18.) Joe Flacco BAL at ATL
Update: I agree with the sentiment that he deserves to be higher - the Falcons have been vulnerable to top receivers, too, so Flacco-to-Boldin seems pretty attractive this week.
9. Kyle Orton DEN vs. KC
10. Matt Ryan ATL vs. BAL
11. *Donovan McNabb WAS vs. PHI
Note: What effect if any will the shenanigans at the end of the Detroit game have here?
Update: (Hamstring) Improved over the bye week. Disputed account of his knowledge of the playbook. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - OFFICIALLY QUESTIONABLE, BUT PRACTICED SATURDAY. ***
12. Mark Sanchez NYJ at CLE
13. (prev. 21.) *Shaun Hill DET at BUF
Update: Matthew Stafford is out indefinitely, perhaps out for the year. Hill looks good to start. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - OFFICIALLY THE STARTER. ***
14. Tom Brady NE at PIT
Update: (Sprained Foot) Didn't practice Wednesday, limited practice Thursday.
15. Jay Cutler CHI vs. MIN
Note: Sacked just once by the Bills last week.
16. Josh Freeman TB vs. CAR
17. Brett Favre MIN at CHI
Update: (Foot) Sat out Wednesday's practice.
18. Carson Palmer CIN at IND
Update: Rested a sore shoulder both Wednesday and Thursday. Says he'll practice Friday and play Sunday. ***SUNDAY UPDATE - ACTIVE, BUT TOOK A PAIN-KILLING INJECTION BEFORE GAME. ***
19. *Vince Young TEN at MIA
Note: No update yet on Young's ankle. It's still possible that it's Kerry Collins and not Young that gets this start.
Update: Practiced Thursday after sitting out Wednesday. The plan is for Young to get most of the first-team snaps Friday, which suggests that he'll be able to go. ***SUNDAY UPDATE - COLLINS TO START, YOUNG WILL BE THE #2. ***
20. Jon Kitna DAL at NYG
21. Chad Pennington MIA vs. TEN
Update: Named the starter ahead of Chad Henne.
22. (prev. 26.) *Matt Hasselbeck SEA at AZ
Note: (Concussion) Had a good session Monday, hopes to get cleared to play Wednesday. Otherwise, it's Charlie Whitehurst again, as the team released Zac Robinson.
Update: Hasselbeck has been cleared to practice.
23. Matt Cassel KC at DEN
24. *Derek Anderson AZ vs. SEA
25. Sam Bradford STL at SF
26. Colt McCoy CLE vs. NYJ
Note: Both Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace could return to practice this week, but how can Mangini replace McCoy at this point?
Update: Not yet confirmed as the starter, but "heading in that direction."
27. *Troy Smith SF vs. STL
Note: Taking first-team snaps at practice, while Alex Smith hasn't been able to practice yet.
*** SUNDAY UPDATE - OFFICIALLY THE STARTER. ***
28. *Jimmy Clausen CAR at TB
Note: Matt Moore is out for the season, so either Clausen or Tony Pike will get the nod.
Update: Clausen will get the start.

Running Back

1. Adrian Peterson MIN at CHI
2. Maurice Jones-Drew JAC vs. HOU
3. Arian Foster HOU at JAC
4. Chris Johnson TEN at MIA

8. Ray Rice BAL at ATL
9. Ahmad Bradshaw NYG vs. DAL
10. Cedric Benson CIN at IND
11. LeSean McCoy PHI at WAS
12. Jamaal Charles KC at DEN
Note: Somebody please explain Todd Haley to me. It's one thing to try to preserve Charles, it's entirely a different thing to not put yourself in the best position to win. Charles' usage against the Raiders was inexcusable.
Update: Apparently sidelined multiple times with undisclosed injuries last week, but he's not on the injury report this week.
13. Steven Jackson STL at SF
14. (prev. 17.) Peyton Hillis CLE vs. NYJ
15. LeGarrette Blount TB vs. CAR

18. Fred Jackson BUF vs. DET
19. LaDainian Tomlinson NYJ at CLE

23. Matt Forte CHI vs. MIN
Note: Lost the goal line carries to Chester Taylor.
24. BenJarvus Green-Ellis NE at PIT
25. (prev. 30.) *Mike Goodson CAR at TB

26. (prev. 22.) Marshawn Lynch SEA at AZ
Update: (Thigh) Limited in Wednesday's practice. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - LISTED AS PROBABLE. ***
27. Shonn Greene NYJ at CLE
Update: Talk of "adding balance" in the backfield from Rex Ryan suggests that Greene could get more carries soon.
28. *Donald Brown IND vs. CIN
Note: Started with both Addai and Hart out last week, but James got the goal line carries.
29. *Felix Jones DAL at NYG
Note: Barely used after the Cowboys fell behind big against the Packers.

45. Cadillac Williams TB vs. CAR
46. Javon Ringer TEN at MIA

48. Derrick Ward HOU at JAC
49. Correll Buckhalter DEN vs. KC
50. Toby Gerhart MIN at CHI
51. *Anthony Dixon SF vs. STL
52. *Andre Brown CAR at TB
Note: Claimed off waivers from the Colts, which speaks volumes about the health of the other Panthers running backs.
53. Bernard Scott CIN at IND
54. Kenneth Darby STL at SF
55. Mike Bell CLE vs. NYJ
56. Eldra Buckley PHI at WAS
58. Leon Washington SEA at AZ

Update: Sat out practice Thursday, not looking good for this week. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - OFFICIALLY DOUBTFUL FOR MONDAY NIGHT ***

Update: Held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - OUT AGAIN. ***

Wide Receiver

1. *Hakeem Nicks NYG vs. DAL
Note: Rolled his ankle late but later downplayed the injury.
Update: Not on the initial injury report.
2. Reggie Wayne IND vs. CIN
3. Larry Fitzgerald AZ vs. SEA
4. *Andre Johnson HOU at JAC
Note: (Ankle) Very modest game last week - looks like the ankle will be an issue all season long.
Update: Precautionary MRI Monday, did not practice Thursday. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - ACTIVE THIS WEEK DESPITE LIMITED PRACTICE WEEK. ***
5. *Roddy White ATL vs. BAL
Note: (Knee) Didn't practice Monday or Tuesday, yet says he'll play Thursday. By the way, why are two teams that played Sunday playing the Thursday night game, and not SF-STL, or two other of the six teams that were on bye last week? Silly scheduling.
Update: Active Thursday night, but hurting. I'm treating the same as Antonio Gates - if he's playing, I'm starting him.
6. Terrell Owens CIN at IND
7. Brandon Lloyd DEN vs. KC
8. Anquan Boldin BAL at ATL
9. *Calvin Johnson DET at BUF
Note: Had a big reception against the Giants with Stanton at the helm, so all isn't necessarily lost if both Stafford and Hill have to sit this one out.
Update: Looks like Hill will start.
10. *Percy Harvin MIN at CHI
Note: Huge yardage game despite the high-profile ankle injury last week.
Update: Sat out practice the last two days with a migraine. Given his history with injuries, including migraines, there's no downgrade here. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - ACTIVE DESPITE MIGRAINES. ***

15. (prev. 19.) Steve Johnson BUF vs. DET
16. Dwayne Bowe KC at DEN

47. Brian Hartline MIA vs. TEN
48. Deon Butler SEA at AZ

50. T.J. Houshmandzadeh BAL at ATL
51. Nate Burleson DET at BUF
