Fantasy injury report: Week 10

The following is a list of injured players for Week 10 (November 11-12) and the fantasy implications of all the major injuries:

Arizona Cardinals
Out: S Aaron Francisco (knee); Questionable: S Adrian Wilson (heel); Probable: T Elton Brown (knee), LB Karlos Dansby (knee), T Mike Gandy (calf), CB Eric Green (hamstring), QB Kurt Warner (left elbow).

Fantasy take: Warner will start in Week 10 and is a viable fantasy option against Detroit. Dansby also appears set to return for IDP owners, but Wilson's status is uncertain so be sure to monitor him over the weekend.

Atlanta Falcons
Doubtful: QB Byron Leftwich (ankle); Questionable: RB Jerious Norwood (ankle); Probable: TE Alge Crumpler (knee, ankle), LB Stephen Nicholas (ankle).

Fantasy take: Joey Harrington will start in the absence of Leftwich, who is out at least one more week. Norwood is listed as questionable for Week 10. His absence would increase the value of Warrick Dunn, who is now off the injury report. Crumpler is listed as probable and should start against Carolina, so he's worth a look for desperate owners.

Baltimore Ravens
Out: CB Samari Rolle (illness), TE Daniel Wilcox (foot); Questionable: CB Chris McAlister (knee), CB David Pittman (head), S Ed Reed (head), S Gerome Sapp (thigh), LB Terrell Suggs (knee); Probable: LB Prescott Burgess (thigh), WR Yamon Figurs (knee), TE Todd Heap (thigh).

Fantasy take: The Ravens have a number of injuries on defense, so keep tabs on the status of Suggs, McAlister and Reed. The absence of Rolle and the possible absence of McAlister makes the Cincinnati wide receivers even more attractive. Heap practiced on Friday and is listed as probable for Week 10. Willis McGahee (head) was removed from the injury report and will start against Cincinnati.

Buffalo Bills
Out: TE Matt Murphy (calf), TE Derek Schouman (ankle); Questionable: LB John DiGiorgio (head), QB Trent Edwards (right wrist), WR Roscoe Parrish (thigh), WR Josh Reed (back), DE Aaron Schobel (illness); Probable: LB Leon Joe (back), CB Ashton Youboty (ankle).

Fantasy take: J.P. Losman will start in Week 10 with Edwards at less than 100 percent. Losman is a nice sleeper against a bad Miami team.

Carolina Panthers
Out: QB David Carr (concussion); Questionable: WR Keary Colbert (foot), C Justin Hartwig (thumb), QB Vinny Testaverde (Achilles); Probable: DE Otis Grigsby (thigh), T Jordan Gross (ankle).

Fantasy take: Testaverde was unable to practice on Friday, so undrafted rookie Matt Moore might start against Atlanta.

Chicago Bears
Out: G Ruben Brown (shoulder); Doubtful: S Brandon McGowan (elbow), CB Nathan Vasher (groin), LB Rod Wilson (neck); Questionable: DT Tommie Harris (knee).

Fantasy take:Devin Hester (illness) was removed from the injury report, which is fantastic news for the value of the Chicago defense/special teams unit.

Cincinnati Bengals
Out: T Willie Anderson (knee), LB Ahmad Brooks (groin), LB Caleb Miller (back); Doubtful: S Herana-Daze Jones (knee), TE Reggie Kelly (knee), LB Anthony Schlegel (back), DT John Thornton (neck); Probable: WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh (knee), LB Rashad Jeanty (knee), WR Chad Johnson (neck), CB Deltha O'Neal (knee).

Fantasy take: Houshmandzadeh and Johnson are listed as probable and will start in Week 10.

Cleveland Browns
Out: G Seth McKinney (shoulder); Doubtful: LB D'Qwell Jackson (ankle); Questionable: LB Antwan Peek (knee), G Eric Steinbach (back); Probable: CB Leigh Bodden (back).

Fantasy take: The Browns have some injuries on defense, but this unit warrants no fantasy consideration in Week 10.

Dallas Cowboys
Out: WR Terry Glenn (knee); Questionable: WR Isaiah Stanback (shoulder); Probable: CB Anthony Henry (ankle), S Pat Watkins (ankle).

Fantasy take: Patrick Crayton will continue to start in Glenn's absence.

Denver Broncos
Out: WR Javon Walker (knee); Questionable: K Jason Elam (right calf), RB Travis Henry (knee), S John Lynch (neck); Full practice: QB Jay Cutler (ankle), DE Elvis Dumervil (knee), DE John Engelberger (shoulder), WR Glenn Martinez (ribs), CB Karl Paymah (knee), RB Cecil Sapp (calf), LB D.J. Williams (finger).

Fantasy take: Henry will be a game-time decision for Week 10, so Selvin Young has a chance to see an increased role in Kansas City. Brandon Stokley will continue to start in the absence of Walker, who could return in Week 11. Cutler practiced and appears set to the start. Elam is listed as questionable, so fantasy owners should look for healthier alternatives.

Detroit Lions
Doubtful: T Jonathan Scott (hand), DE Dewayne White (elbow); Probable: RB Jon Bradley (ankle), QB Jon Kitna (left shoulder).

Fantasy take: Kitna returned to practice late in the week and should be fine to start in Arizona.

Green Bay Packers
Out: CB Will Blackmon (foot), S Nick Collins (knee), TE Bubba Franks (knee); Questionable: LB Tracy White (ankle); Probable: T Chad Clifton (knee), G Junius Coston (ankle), RB Ryan Grant (concussion), CB Al Harris (back), WR Ruvell Martin (back), T Tony Moll (neck), DT Ryan Pickett (knee), LB Brady Poppinga (shoulder), WR Koren Robinson (knee), S Aaron Rouse (shoulder), DT Corey Williams (knee), CB Charles Woodson (foot).

Fantasy take: Donald Lee will continue to see more work with Franks out. Grant put in a full practice and will start in Week 10, but he has a tough matchup against Minnesota. Harris, Pickett, Poppinga, Rouse, Williams and Woodson are all probable, so the Green Bay defense looks like a nice option.

Indianapolis Colts
Out: S Matt Giordano (hamstring), WR Anthony Gonzalez (hand); Questionable: DT Raheem Brock (neck), TE Dallas Clark (concussion), T Daniel Federkeil (concussion), LB Tyjuan Hagler (neck), WR Marvin Harrison (knee), CB Marlin Jackson (foot), LB Freddy Keiaho (ear), T Tony Ugoh (neck).

Fantasy take: Clark was limited in Friday's practice, so be sure to monitor his status all weekend. Ben Utecht would see more work if Clark is out. Gonzalez is expected to miss a few weeks, and it appears that Harrison will be a gametime decision. Aaron Moorehead could be in line for more opportunities in Week 10.

Jacksonville Jaguars
Out: K Josh Scobee (right quadriceps); Questionable: QB David Garrard (ankle), DE Brent Hawkins (hamstring), C Dennis Norman (shoulder); Probable: TE Greg Estandia (foot), TE Marcedes Lewis (knee).

Fantasy take: Garrard was limited in Friday's practice but has a chance to start in Week 10. Quinn Gray would start again if Garrard is unavailable.

Kansas City Chiefs
Out: RB Larry Johnson (foot), T Will Svitek (foot); Probable: TE Jason Dunn (eye), LB Keyaron Fox (hamstring), WR Eddie Kennison (hamstring), T Damion McIntosh (illness).

Fantasy take: Johnson is out for Week 10, so look for Priest Holmes to start and Kolby Smith to see some carries. Holmes is a borderline No. 2 or 3 fantasy back. Kennison is expected to return against Denver, so look for Samie Parker to move back to the slot.

Miami Dolphins
Out: LB Zach Thomas (migraine), S Travares Tillman (knee); Probable: DT Keith Traylor (ankle).

Fantasy take: The Dolphins have some injuries on defense, but this unit has little fantasy value overall.

Minnesota Vikings
Questionable: DE Ray Edwards (foot), QB Kelly Holcomb (neck), QB Tarvaris Jackson (concussion), WR Sidney Rice (hamstring); Probable: T Ryan Cook (shoulder), T Bryant McKinnie (knee), WR Bobby Wade (knee), CB Antoine Winfield (hamstring).

Fantasy take: Jackson will start if he's active, otherwise Brooks Bollinger will be under center in Week 10. Rice was limited in Friday's practice, so his status is uncertain. His value is limited to larger fantasy formats.

New Orleans Saints
Out: DE Charles Grant (ankle), LB Scott Shanle (hamstring), DT Brian Young (knee), CB Usama Young (hamstring); Questionable: RB Reggie Bush (knee).

Fantasy take: Bush was limited in Friday's practice with what has been called a "bone bruise," so he could be a gametime decision. Aaron Stecker and Pierre Thomas would see more work if Bush is out.

New York Giants
Out: WR Steve Smith (shoulder, hamstring); Doubtful: RB Derrick Ward (ankle, groin); Questionable: WR Plaxico Burress (ankle).

Fantasy take: Reuben Droughns would see more carries behind Brandon Jacobs if Ward is out. Burress missed a lot of practice this week, but he's still expected to start against Dallas.

Oakland Raiders
Out: LB Sam Williams (shoulder); Doubtful: C Jake Grove (knee); Questionable: CB Nnamdi Asomugha (knee), WR Jerry Porter (knee), CB Fabian Washington (calf); Probable: DT Warren Sapp (knee), DT Gerard Warren (quadriceps).

Fantasy take: Tim Dwight and rookie Johnnie Lee Higgins would see more work if Porter is out. The Raiders have some injuries on defense, but this unit still warrants fantasy consideration in leagues with 12-plus teams. The possible absence of Asomugha and Washington would be great news for Chicago's wide receivers.

Philadelphia Eagles
Probable: WR Jason Avant (groin), C Jon Dorenbos (abdomen), CB William James (foot), WR Greg Lewis (chest), T Jon Runyan (glute), CB Lito Sheppard (knee), TE L.J. Smith (back) .

Fantasy take: Reggie Brown (neck) and Brian Westbrook (shoulder) were removed from the injury report and will start in Washington.

Pittsburgh Steelers
Out: S Ryan Clark (spleen), TE Jerame Tuman (back); Probable: WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring), LB Clint Kriewaldt (calf), RB Willie Parker (knee), QB Ben Roethlisberger (hip), RB Gary Russell (player decision).

Fantasy take: Roethlisberger, Parker and Holmes all put in a full practice on Friday and will start in Week 10.

San Diego Chargers
Out: DE Luis Castillo (ankle), C Nick Hardwick (foot); Doubtful: CB Quentin Jammer (hamstring); Questionable: LB Marques Harris (toe).

Fantasy take: The loss of Castillo is good news for Joseph Addai, and the potential absence of Jammer makes the Indianapolis wide receivers even more attractive. The Chargers have some injuries on defense, so fantasy owners should start this unit with extreme caution.

San Francisco 49ers
Questionable: RB Frank Gore (ankle), T Kwame Harris (back), CB Walt Harris (knee), S Keith Lewis (hamstring).

Fantasy take: Gore was limited in Friday's practice and could be a gametime decision, so fantasy owners should add Michael Robinson or Maurice Hicks as insurance.

Seattle Seahawks
Out: LB Will Herring (hamstring), T Ray Willis (knee); Doubtful: LB LeRoy Hill (hamstring); Questionable: RB Shaun Alexander (knee), DE Baraka Atkins (ankle), WR Deion Branch (foot), DE Patrick Kerney (oblique), LB Niko Koutouvides (hamstring), TE Marcus Pollard (knee).

Fantasy take: Alexander did little at practice all week, so Maurice Morris could start and see more work in Week 10. Branch's status remains uncertain, so Bobby Engram and D.J. Hackett could see more work at wide receiver. Will Heller will continue to start until Pollard can return to action.

St. Louis Rams
Out: G Richie Incognito (knee), TE Aaron Walker (shoulder); Questionable: WR Dante Hall (ankle), C Brett Romberg (ankle); Probable: RB Steven Jackson (back).

Fantasy take: Jackson is expected to start in Week 10, barring setbacks. He'll return behind an offensive line that will be without Incognito.

Tennessee Titans
Out: RB Ahmard Hall (forearm); Questionable: RB Chris Brown (ankle), DT Albert Haynesworth (hamstring), DE Travis LaBoy (concussion); Probable: G Benji Olson (back), RB LenDale White (toe).

Fantasy take: White put in a full practice on Friday and will start in Week 10. Brown is questionable to face Jacksonville, so Chris Henry could be active again in his absence.

Washington Redskins
Out: G Randy Thomas (triceps); Questionable: WR Santana Moss (heel); Probable: DT Cornelius Griffin (back), WR Antwaan Randle El (hamstring), CB Fred Smoot (hamstring), LB Marcus Washington (hamstring).

Fantasy take: Moss missed Friday's practice, so be sure to keep tabs on his status. Randle El is listed as probable and would have more fantasy value if Moss is out.
