2012 W11 Injury Report & Notes - Thurs
Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (right shoulder) missed practice again Thursday. Roethlisberger has been ruled out for Week 11 with rib and shoulder injuries. Byron Leftwich should get the start, but is not a good fantasy option against the Ravens. Roethlisberger owners should have a solid backup plan for the foreseeable future as the injury has been referred to as "rare and dangerous." Ben is unsure when he will return.
Bears QB Jay Cutler (concussion) missed practice Thursday. Cutler is very iffy for Week 11. Jason Campbell is not a good option against a tough 49ers defense.
Eagles QB Michael Vick (concussion) missed practice again Thursday. Vick's concussion has been termed "significant," but there is no guarantee Vick will get the job back once he is eventually cleared. Rookie Nick Foles steps in as the starter and has a nice matchup this week against the Redskins.
Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert (left shoulder) took full practice reps again Thursday. Gabbert should be fine for a bad matchup with the Texans.
Cardinals QB Kevin Kolb (ribs) missed practice again Thursday. John Skelton figures to get another start and is a decent desperation option against the Falcons, who figure to jump out to a lead on the Cards.
Browns QB Brandon Weeden (groin, thigh) took full practice reps again Thursday. Weeden will be fine for a bad matchup with the Cowboys.
Chiefs QB Brady Quinn (head) took full practice reps again Thursday. Despite Quinn's return, it appears that Matt Cassel will get another start. He's not a fantasy option, but he's better for Dwayne Bowe than Quinn is.
Jets QB Mark Sanchez (back) took full practice reps again Thursday. Sanchez has a so-so matchup with the Rams.
Jets QB Tim Tebow (ribs) took full practice reps again Thursday.
Texans QB T.J. Yates (right elbow) took full practice reps again Thursday.
