Alas, injuries are an unfortunate part of football, and they do tend to have an impact on our pretend game. Here are some notable injury updates, and how they may affect your decision making process this week.

 

 

 

 

 

Quarterbacks:

 

Jason Campbell (CLE): Out

Campbell (concussion) has still not returned to practice and his status for Sunday has yet to be determined. Stay far away from this mess.

Jay Cutler (CHI): Out

Cutler (high ankle sprain) is eyeing a return on Monday night against the Cowboys, but has yet to practice this week. Stay tuned.

Peyton Manning (DEN): Probable

Peyton (right ankle) did not practice Wednesday as has become the custom, but will no doubt be suiting up again this Sunday against the Titans.

Palmer (right elbow) was limited in practice Wednesday after playing the previous couple of games with a right hand issue. He should be okay, but his status is unclear at the moment.

Christian Ponder (MIN): Questionable

Ponder (concussion) was concussed against the Bears and is very unlikely to play this Sunday.

Aaron Rodgers (GB): Out

Rodgers (fractured collarbone) has not yet been ruled out for this Sunday and did practice Wednesday on a limited basis. However, it still does not look good. We will know more later in the week.

Chris Ivory (NYJ): Probable

Ivory (ankle) practiced fully Wednesday and is expected to play this week.
