Week 5 Injury Updates


Some quick injury roundups from around the Web, courtesy of's aggregator:

Eli Manning practiced on Friday and looked fine, according to Coach Tom Coughlin. He's listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision.

Matt Hasselbeck is probably for Sunday, but he has a horrible matchup in his first game back from a rib injury. Keep him on your bench.

Willie Parker is out for Sunday's game against Detroit with turf toe. Parker's targeted return is Week 6, according to reports, but this may a lost season with how well Rashard Mendenhall is running.

Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Kansas City. Williams hurt his ribs in last week's loss to Denver.

Correll Buckhalter is out for Sunday's game against New England. That means Knowshon Moreno will get the bulk of the work.

The Rams could be without starting wide receivers in Donnie Avery and Keenan Burton, both listed as questionable. Remember the Rams are already without Laurent Robinson, who is done for the season.

Jerricho Cotchery missed practice on Friday, and Jets Coach Rex Ryan said it's no certainty he will play Monday night against Miami.

"...but [Hasselbeck] has a horrible matchup in his first game back from a rib injury. Keep him on your bench." Gene, you're crazy. He's going up against the Jags who are tied for last place (31st) in passing defense. Hasselbeck has a great matchup this week. Start 'em if you got 'em.

I hate being right all the time. Hasselbeck exploded this week. Gene, you better check yourself before you wreck yourself.
