Last updated December 19. * = check status (not necessarily injury status)

Thursday Game: San Francisco at San Diego

Quarterback

1. Michael Vick PHI at NYG
Note: Took a lot of hits against the Cowboys last week but still plugged away.
2. Peyton Manning IND vs. JAC
3. Tom Brady NE vs. GB
Note: Snow? What snow?
4. Drew Brees NO at BAL
5. Philip Rivers SD vs. SF
6. Matt Schaub HOU at TEN
7. Jon Kitna DAL vs. WAS
8. Joe Flacco BAL vs. NO
11. *Carson Palmer CIN vs. CLE
Note: Palmer last week played as if he was secretly a double agent.
12. Matt Ryan ATL at SEA
13. Eli Manning NYG vs. PHI
Note: The Vikings' ineptitude on offense obscured that Manning had a pretty awful game.
15. *Ben Roethlisberger PIT vs. NYJ
Note: Big Ben suffered a minor ankle injury against the Bengals last week that might impact his ability to scramble.
16. Kerry Collins TEN vs. HOU
9. Josh Freeman TB vs. DET
Update: Modest downgrade merely because the Bucs don't throw that often, regardless of the matchup.
17. Jason Campbell OAK vs. DEN
Note: Campbell played through a stinger injury after briefly leaving against Jacksonville last week.
20. Ryan Fitzpatrick BUF at MIA
21. Sam Bradford STL vs. KC
22. *Drew Stanton DET at TB
Note: The team won despite the QB's efforts, part I.
23. *Matt Hasselbeck SEA vs. ATL
Note: Hasselbeck has been really hurt by the complete dissolution of his receiving corps.
18. David Garrard JAC at IND
Update: Limited in Thursday's practice with a hamstring injury. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - THE JAGUARS ARE CONCERNED ENOUGH ABOUT GARRARD'S INJURY THAT THEY SIGNED A THIRD QB, THOUGH GARRARD PROBABLY WILL STILL START. ***
10. Jay Cutler CHI at MIN
Update: Downgrading because of the outdoor game, and the likelihood that this could be a ground-and-pound game.
24. *Chad Henne MIA vs. BUF
Note: The team won despite the QB's efforts, part II.
25. Mark Sanchez NYJ at PIT
29. *Matt Cassel KC at STL
Note: We're not certain yet whether Cassel will be able to return from his appendectomy this week. The alternatives in Brodie Croyle and Tyler Palko are pretty grisly.
Update: Cassel has been limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday. The hunch here is he'll play, but he's far from a sure thing. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - GAME-TIME DECISION, BUT PRACTICED FRIDAY. ***
26. Alex Smith SF at SD
27. *Jake Delhomme CLE at CIN
Note: We're operating under the assumption that Colt McCoy can't go until told otherwise.
Update: McCoy will return this week and health-permitting will start for the remainder of the season.
14. Donovan McNabb WAS at DAL
***SUNDAY UPDATE - REX GROSSMAN STARTS. THERE'S NOT ENOUGH SNARK IN THIS WORLD TO COMMENT. ***
28. * Matt Flynn GB at NE
Note: (Concussion) The Packers will take the high side of caution this week with Aaron Rodgers (concussion). If Rodgers plays, I'll adjust accordingly - but be aware it's the Sunday night game. You'll have little recourse if you leave him in there and then he can't go.
Update: Rodgers hasn't practiced yet and probably won't practice Friday. It's looking increasingly grim. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - FLYNN WILL START. ***
19. *Kyle Orton DEN at OAK
Note: That's two huge duds in a row. The season is lost - might we see Tim Tebow this week? If so, it'll be in relief, as Orton will get the start.
Update: Orton has missed practice this week with sore ribs. It's looking closer to a Tim Tebow start. ***SUNDAY UPDATE - TEBOW WILL START. ***
30. *Tarvaris Jackson MIN vs. CHI
Note: Brett Favre's streak finally ended, with a whimper. He doesn't have nerve damage in the shoulder and hasn't been put on IR, but I'd be surprised if he plays, now that the streak is over. Meanwhile, Jackson has a turf toe injury. We might see Joe Webb start this game.
Update: Jackson goes to the IR, and Webb will probably start. Note that Webb qualifies as a WR in Yahoo leagues, at least for now. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - WEBB WILL START. ***
31. *John Skelton AZ at CAR
Note: Skelton will remain the starter this meek.
32. *Jimmy Clausen CAR vs. AZ
Note: Coach John Fox said that Clausen will get the start again.

Running Back

1. Maurice Jones-Drew JAC at IND
Update: (Knee) Didn't practice Thursday. Not alarming yet - this has happened frequently before - but watch carefully Friday, obviously.
2. Arian Foster HOU at TEN
Update: Limited Thursday with a hip injury. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - LISTED AS PROBABLE. ***
3. Peyton Hillis CLE at CIN
4. Darren McFadden OAK vs. DEN

10. Brandon Jacobs NYG vs. PHI
11. Steven Jackson STL vs. KC
12. Ray Rice BAL vs. NO
13. Knowshon Moreno DEN at OAK
14. *Ahmad Bradshaw NYG vs. PHI
Note: Bradshaw had his left wrist wrapped at the end of the game.
15. Adrian Peterson MIN vs. CHI
Note: Last week became the worst-case scenario for Peterson. It might not be better this week.
Update: (Knee, Ankle) Held out of Thursday's practice. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - OFFICIALLY QUESTIONABLE, RETURNED TO PRACTICE SATURDAY AFTER SITTING OUT THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. ***
16. BenJarvus Green-Ellis NE vs. GB
17. LeGarrette Blount TB vs. DET
18. Ronnie Brown MIA vs. BUF
Note: Time for a rare good week?

31. *Jahvid Best DET at TB
20. Felix Jones DAL vs. WAS
21. Rashard Mendenhall PIT vs. NYJ

Note: He was on my bench all over the place last week, too.
Update: Full practice Thursday. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - FULL PRACTICE FRIDAY, LISTED AS QUESTIONABLE. ***
23. Fred Jackson BUF at MIA
24. *Mike Tolbert SD vs. SF
25. Tim Hightower AZ at CAR
26. Cedric Benson CIN vs. CLE
36. *Ryan Mathews SD vs. SF
Update: Getting the start Thursday night, though it's still a timeshare with Tolbert. Still, I have a good feeling about him. 27. Brian Westbrook SF at SD
28. *Mike Goodson CAR vs. AZ
30. Marshawn Lynch SEA vs. ATL
32. *Tashard Choice DAL vs. WAS
33. Donald Brown IND vs. JAC
35. Rashad Jennings JAC at IND
Note: Three straight weeks with a touchdown.
37. *Brandon Jackson GB at NE
38. Danny Woodhead NE vs. GB
29. Maurice Morris DET at TB

40. Ricky Williams MIA vs. BUF
41. LaDainian Tomlinson NYJ at PIT

22. *Vincent Jackson SD vs. SF
Update: Big move up with Floyd out.
9. Santonio Holmes NYJ at PIT
10. Calvin Johnson DET at TB

12. Larry Fitzgerald AZ at CAR
6. DeSean Jackson PHI at NYG
Update: (Foot) Did not practice Thursday. *** SUNDAY UPDATE - LIMITED PRACTICE FRIDAY, BUT WILL PLAY. ***
13. Pierre Garcon IND vs. JAC

24. Brandon Lloyd DEN at OAK
Note: Lloyd's value is plummeting right along with Kyle Orton's.

30. Steve Johnson BUF at MIA
