Week 11 got underway last night with the Titans and Colts squaring off on Thursday Night Football. Hopefully your fantasy week got off to a good start, but regardless of how you did last night make sure to get your lineup locked in for this weekend. One of the biggest parts of getting things lined up correctly is being up to date on the latest injury status of your players. Each Friday we run things down to let you know what to expect based on practice reports so far this week. Players with a “green light” designation are battling injury but can be played as normal this week.


Peyton Manning-Denver Broncos: Manning will play through his ankle injury and is a must start if you own him. The biggest fear for the Broncos’ fans and Manning’s owners is that he’ll complicate his injury by playing through it against a tough Chiefs defense.

Aaron Rodgers-Green Bay Packers: Rodgers is trying to work his way back for week 12, but is out for week 11.

Jay Cutler-Chicago Bears: Cutler has ben ruled out this week and never practiced at all since his ankle injury. He’s week-to-week but looks to be out for multiple weeks leaving Josh McCown as the Bears starter against the Ravens.

Jason Campbell-Cleveland Browns: Green Light (ribs)

Terrelle Pryor-Oakland Raiders: Pryor was back in practice, but he was only limited and still split work with Matt McGloin. It looks like a week to avoid Pryor since he’ll be limited even if he does get the start.

Christian Ponder-Minnesota Vikings: Ponder is questionable but has been practicing and hopes to start this week for Minnesota.

Running Back

Darren McFadden-Oakland Raiders: Run DMc doesn’t look like he’ll be playing and is officially doubtful for Sunday. It looks like Rashad Jennings will get a heavy workload once again with McFadden sidelined.

Marshawn Lynch-Seattle Seahawks: Green Light (Probable)

Zac Stacy-St. Louis Rams: Green Light (ankle)

Ben Tate-Houston Texans: Green Light (ribs)

Shane Vereen-New England Patriots: Vereen is going to step up his practice regiment this week as he tries to get back from his injury sustained in week 1.

DeAngelo Williams-Carolina Panthers: Green Light (quad)

Maurice Jones-Drew-Jacksonville Jaguars: Green Light (knee)

Chris Ivory-New York Jets: Green Light (knee)

Fred Jackson-Buffalo Bills: Green Light (knee)

Rashard Mendenhall-Arizona Cardinals: Green Light (toe)

Steven Jackson-Atlanta Falcons: Green Light (toe)

Brandon Jacobs-New York Giants: Jacobs is expected to be a gametime decision with a hamstring injury, but he’s clearly behind Andre Brown and won’t play much even if he is active.

Wide Receiver

Calvin Johnson-Detroit Lions: Megatron missed practice Wednesday and Thursday with an undisclosed injury, but he claims he’ll be ready to roll on Sunday. After a surprise inactive in week 5, owners will be cautious, but I think he’ll play against Pittsburgh.

Victor Cruz-New York Giants: Green Light (neck)

DeSean Jackson-Philadelphia Eagles: Green Light (ankle)

Vincent Jackson-Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Green Light (knee)

Eric Decker-Denver Broncos: Green Light (toe)

Percy Harvin-Seattle Seahawks: Harvin has been back at practice and practiced fully Thursday. He should start week 11 against his former team, but if you can try to wait until after his bye in week 12 since he’ll be a much more known commodity.

Riley Cooper-Philadelphia Eagles: Green Light (knee)

Cecil Shorts-Jacksonville Jaguars: Green Light (groin)

Mike Wallace-Miami Dolphins: Wallace had a limited practice Thursday with a hamstring issue. His status for Sunday is still up in the air at this point.

Nate Burleson-Detroit Lions: Burleson is back in practice but is not expected to play this week. Detroit is waiting for a full recovery and apparently Burleson isn’t there yet.

Stephen Hill-New York Jets: Green Light (foot)

Harry Douglas-Atlanta Falcons: Douglas has joined he rest of the Falcons receiving corps with injuries. He’s questionable with a knee issue for Sunday, so check back on him after today’s practice to see if he is going to end up a gametime decision for Sunday.

Dexter McCluster-Kansas City Chiefs: McCluster is questionable but is expected to play for the Chiefs this week in their Mile High showdown against the Broncos.

Roddy White-Atlanta Falcons: White will play but still shouldn’t be in your starting lineup since he’s shown nothing this season.

Stevie Johnson-Buffalo Bills: It doesn’t look like Johnson will play this week joining Robert Woods on the sidelines and leaving the Bills in trouble at wide receiver.

Andre Roberts-Arizona Cardinals: Green Light (knee) 

Tight End

Jimmy Graham-New Orleans Saints: Green Light (foot)

Rob Gronkowski-New England Patriots: Green Light (hamstring)

Vernon Davis-San Francisco 49ers: Davis hasn’t been given clearance yet for Sunday’s game, but most people expect him to be cleared in time for Sunday.

Martellus Bennett-Chicago Bears: Green Light (ankle)

Jermaine Gresham-Cincinnati Bengals: Green Light (groin)

Kyle Rudolph-Minnesota Vikings: out indefinitely.
