LestersLegends Injury Report
It’s time to take a look around the league and see what’s happening on the injury front.
Tom Brady – Yikes. At least it’s not the same one that cost New England their Perfect Season. It did cost him to miss a Preseason game. Naturally, you’re not going to get much info for the Pats, but I think he’ll be fine.
Ronnie Brown - Now’s he’s dealing with a sprained thumb. Hopefully this isn’t a sign of things to come for Ronnie.
Plaxico Burress - Don’t be alarmed when you see Plax missed tonight’s game. He proved himself last year.
Glenn Dorsey - Kansas City’s prized rookie made his debut after being shelved with a sprained knee.
Marvin Harrison – Marvelous Marvin caught a pair of passes vs. Atlanta. I don’t think he’ll have much of an issue getting on page with Manning when he returns.
T.J. Houshmandzadeh - A sore hamstring kept Housh out of a second preseason game.
Tarvaris Jackson – The Vikes QB lands on the Injury Report with a sprained MCL suffered in their game against Baltimore over the weekend. He’ll miss the all-important third preseason game vs. Pittsburgh (where the starters typically play into the 3rd quarter), but should be able to go in a tune-up game against Dallas. Ultimately they may decide to hold him out until the Season Opener. Unless you’re in a DEEP league or a two-QB league, you won’t be using T-Jack Week 1 anyway, but he could start off a little rusty against a tough Packer D.
Chad Johnson – Ocho Cinco hurt his shoulder while attempting to make a catch vs. Detroit. Ocho will likely take the next week off. There’s no need to risk further injury in a meaningless game.
Larry Johnson - LJ got some more work in rushing for 61 yards on 14 carries. That has to be a little relief for LJ owners (myself included).
Rudi Johnson – This is a who’s who of Bengal players. Rudi missed a second game as well with hamstring concerns. My guess is the Bengals are being cautious so their season doesn’t unravel before it starts.
Peyton Manning - Manning is a couple of weeks away from returning to practice. He’s never missed a start so I wouldn’t be too worried if I were a Manning owner.
Deuce McAllister – Deuce made his return Saturday vs. Houston. He carried the ball 4 times for 16 yards and caught a pair of passes for another ten. It was good sign for the Saints.
Hines Ward – He hurt his ankle against the Bills last week. He’s tough. He’ll be fine.
