Week 2 Fantasy Injuries

The Counselor is IN:

Here are the Week 1 fantasy injuries and my commentary. When a player is placed on Injured Reserve for the season, I will mention it that week but not every week afterwards.

No significant fantasy injuries.

WR Laurent Robinson started last week's game. He is now listed as questionable with a hamstring. Pulling a hammy when you finally get a chance to start sticks for Robinson. This Illinois State product could be a deep sleeper if he can stay healthy. Keep an eye on him.

QB Steve McNair pulled his groin muscle Monday night is questionable with it. Kyle Boller took over and he has been practicing with the first team. I would not expect to see McNair play this weekend.

WR Mark Clayton is probable with a toe injury. He only practiced in limited form. It might be better to bench Clayton this week.

TE Todd Heap is probable with an elbow injury. He practiced fully on Wednesday. Heap will play and should be started.

TE Kevin Everett
has a fractured spine. The doctors are hopeful that Everett will be able to walk again.

WR Josh Reed is probable with a thigh contusion. He did not practice again on Wednesday.

No significant fantasy injuries.

TE Greg Olson is listed as Questionable for his left knee. He did not practice on Wednesday. Olson should not be your primary TE until he proves himself and stays healthy.

WR Muhsin Muhammad is probable for this weekend. He played last weekend but only caught one ball. He should play again this weekend but will slightly better results.

WR Antonio Chapman is out with a Hamstring injury. He was released from their Bengals this week.

WR TJ Houshmandzadeh is listed as probable. He practiced fully on Thursday. He will play unless there is a set back.

K Shayne Graham is listed as probable. He practiced fully on Thursday. I would still give this another week if you have a good backup kicker. If not, start Graham and hope he does not re-injure himself. Stop making tackles Shayne- you are a kicker.

No significant fantasy injuries. Of course that is assuming they have significant fantasy players on the Browns.

WR Terry Glenn is out for Sunday's game. He had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Thursday and he hopes to play later this season.

No significant fantasy injuries.

RB Kevin Jones
is listed as questionable with a foot injury. He was limited in practice on Thursday. I would not start Kevin at this time until we know he is back and ready to run.

RB T.J. Duckett is listed as questionable. It does appear that he will actually be out 2 to 4 weeks.

WR Greg Jennings
is listed as questionable with a hamstring. He fully practiced on Thursday and should be ready to start this weekend.

RB Vernand Morency has a knee injury and is listed as questionable. He is the back up running back. He also missed all of practice on Thursday.

No significant fantasy injuries.

No significant fantasy injuries.

Kicker Josh Scobee
is out with a strained quadriceps muscle. He will miss at least three weeks and possibly up to six week.

WR Eddie Kennison is out with a hamstring injury. It is possible he will be back in a couple of weeks but hamstrings are tricky injuries.

RB Jesse Chatman is questionable with a bruised left knee. He missed practice again on Thursday. He is not a starter at this time.

RB Chester Taylor is questionable with bruised oblique muscle. He was at practice on Thursday but he did not participate in practice.

WR Robert Ferguson
is listed as probable for an ankle injury. He has practiced fully this week.

QB Tom Brady
is probable with a shoulder injury and missed part of practice on Thursday. There is no chance that he will not start on Sunday. Start him unless you hear he is not going to play.

WR Randy Moss is probable and limited in practice on Thursday. Moss will play this weekend. There is nothing new to Moss not practicing but coming to play on Sunday.

No significant fantasy injuries.

Kicker Lawerence Tynes
is injured with a calf strain. He was out from practice on Thursday. If he stays injured, the Giants may pick up another kicker pretty quickly. Keep an eye on this situation.

QB Eli Manning has a bruised right shoulder and he is questionable. He did some light practicing on Thursday. I would keep him on the bench this week and see how he is next week.

RB Brandon Jacobs has a sprained MCL and is out for three to five weeks.

RB Thomas Jones
is probable and did not fully participate in practice on Thursday. If you have a good back up, bench Jones. Otherwise keep a close eye on this injury.

QB Chad Pennington is questionable with an ankle injury. It is being reported that he will not start Sunday but they will go with Kellen Clemens.

QB Josh McCown
is listed as probable with a hand and an ankle injury. He practiced fully on Thursday. He should be starting this weekend.

TE L.J. Smith
is listed as probable with a groin injury but he has practiced all week. He is expected to start on Sunday but he is not 100%.

No significant fantasy injuries.

TE Antonio Gates
is probable with a back injury. He did not practice on Wednesday.

No significant fantasy injuries.

WR D.J. Hackett is out with a high ankle sprain. So much for his sleeper status.

WR Drew Bennett
is probable and he practiced on Wednesday.

RB Carnell Williams
is questionable with bruised ribs. He should be starting on Sunday. At this time, he is not a starting fantasy back.

No significant fantasy injuries.

QB Jason Campbell
is listed as probable for his left knee. He should be close to 100 percent and will start this weekend.

RB Clinton Portis is probable for his bruised ribs. Last week it was an ankle and this week it is ribs. He is a ball of injuries just waiting to happen.

That is all the fantasy injuries for this week.
