Week 10 NFL Injury Update

Knowshon Moreno was sent to the IR today due to a torn ACL. With Willis McGahee’s constant hammy issues of late, bump up Lance Ball on your list of players whose value rises this week. 

Matt Cassel was said to need surgery on his hand but is still expected to play per Coach Todd Haley. Sounds to me like Haley is playing mind games so expect Cassel to miss time. Jackie Battle and Dexter McCluster should see each of their reps jump as the Chiefs will be forced to rely on the run game to carry them.

Michael Vick was confirmed as having two broken ribs yesterday but still played through it. He should be able to play next week barring any further irritation to the injury.

Stevie Johnson suffered a shoulder injury but it is not considered serious. Based on his play for the rest of the game and the reps he missed I would say it isn’t as minor as Gailey is saying. Still, he will play through it but it may be wise to make sure you have a solid reserve in case Johnson re-injures himself next week. 

The answer to Jackie Battle’s disappearance was answered today after the announcement he suffered a concussion on Sunday. Given the NFL’s super sensitivity to the issue of late, Battle will have to be cleared to play if he passes testing. 

Not that he is on your roster, but Leonard Hankerson was placed on the IR today after tearing his labrum on Sunday. Gaffney is now the only Redskin receiver worth watching. 

Peyton Hillis has been ruled out already for Week 11 by coaches. Given the in-house issues with this team and Holmgren, don’t expect Hillis to do this team any favors by playing hurt. He will be free to test the market after the season and has his future to worry about.

LaDanian Tomlinson injured his knee last night and will have tests done today. At his age, this is a big deal if it is an ACL issue. Joe McKnight will most likely be next in line to spell Greene.
