The following is a list of injured players for Week 17 (Dec. 29-30) and all the fantasy implications:
Fantasy take: Brady is listed as probable (as always) and will start in Week 17. Watson is listed as questionable and could miss another week.
Doubtful: LB Marcus Wilkins (shoulder); Questionable: CB David Irons (hamstring), WR Michael Jenkins (quadriceps), S Lawyer Milloy (hip); Probable: DE Jamaal Anderson (knee), DT Tim Anderson (knee), CB Antoine Harris (knee), WR Joe Horn (foot), CB Chris Houston (knee), QB Byron Leftwich (team decision).
Out: QB Kyle Boller (head), TE Todd Heap (thigh), WR Demetrius Williams, RB Willis McGahee (chest), S Gerome Sapp (thigh), TE Quinn Sypniewski (head), TE Daniel Wilcox (thigh); Questionable: LB Ray Lewis (back), RB Mike Anderson (thigh), WR Mark Clayton (back), T Jonathan Ogden (thigh); Probable: OT Jonathan Ogden (hamstring), LB Edgar Jones (foot).
Fantasy take: With McGahee out and Anderson limited in Friday's practice, RB Musa Smith will start in Week 17. QB Troy Smith will start in the absence of Boller. Heap, Sypniewski and Wilcox are all on the injury report, so the Ravens could be thin at tight end. TE Lee Vickers will see more work as a result. Clayton was also limited but is expected to start against Pittsburgh.
Fantasy take: Testaverde missed Friday's practice, but rookie QB Matt Moore is slated to start in Week 17.
Out: RB De De Dorsey (ankle), C Eric Ghiaciuc (foot), S Madieu Williams (thigh), RB Rudi Johnson (hamstring); Doubtful: S Dexter Jackson (calf); Questionable: T Willie Anderson (hamstring); Probable: WR Glenn Holt (back), WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh (ankle), LB Dhani Jones (shoulder).
Fantasy take: Johnson and Dorsey are both out, so RB Kenny Watson should see a prominent role in Week 17. Houshmandzadeh put in a full practice and will start in Miami.
Questionable: WR Joe Jurevicius (knee), LB Antwan Peek (ankle), DE Orpheus Roye (knee); Probable: DE Robaire Smith (neck), DE Shaun Smith (biceps), TE Kellen Winslow (knee).
Fantasy take: Owens is out for Week 17, so WRs Patrick Crayton and Glenn could start. WR Sam Hurd will also see some work in Washington.
Fantasy take: Cutler was active in Friday's practice and will start in Week 17. Walker could start again if Stokley misses the final week of the season.
Out: RB Kevin Jones (knee); Questionable: RB Tatum Bell (foot), WR Troy Walters (concussion); Probable: T Damien Woody (shoulder), CB Fernando Bryant (illness).
Green Bay Packers
Out: FB Korey Hall (hip); Doubtful: QB Aaron Rodgers (hamstring), CB Charles Woodson (toe); Questionable: WR Greg Jennings (ankle), DT Ryan Pickett (groin); Probable: TE Bubba Franks (knee), WR Koren Robinson (knee), CB Jarrett Bush, T Chad Clifton (shoulder), G Junius Coston (ankle), CB Al Harris (heel), T Mark Tauscher (ankle).
Doubtful: DE Anthony Weaver (shoulder); Questionable: LB Danny Clark (groin), QB Matt Schaub (left shoulder); Probable: S Michael Boulware (player decision), K Kris Brown (left foot), RB Jameel Cook (illness), RB Ron Dayne (ankle), WR Andre Johnson (knee), DT Travis Johnson (illness), LB DeMeco Ryans (knee), T Eric Winston (back).
Out: DT Raheem Brock (rib), T Ryan Diem (knee); Questionable: CB Antoine Bethea (knee), WR Anthony Gonzalez (foot), WR Marvin Harrison (knee), CB Tim Jennings (concussion), DE Robert Mathis (knee), DB Keiwan Ratliff (hamstring), DT Quinn Pitcock (groin), TE Ben Utecht (shoulder); Probable: DE Josh Thomas (illness), RB Luke Lawton (illness), DB Kelvin Hayden.
Fantasy take: RB Joseph Addai is not on the injury report, but he could be limited or rested for the postseason. Harrison put in full work in Friday's practice and could start in Week 17. Still, he could see limited work and is not a viable option for fantasy footballers. Gonzalez also missed practice and could be held out against Tennessee. DB Bob Sanders (team decision) was removed from the injury report.
Kansas City Chiefs
Out: WR Eddie Kennison (ribs); Questionable: LB Donnie Edwards (hamstring), LB Napoleon Harris (knee); Probable: LB Napoleon Harris (knee), T Damion McIntosh (ankle), QB Brodie Croyle (right hand).
Fantasy take: RB Larry Johnson is out for Week 17, so RB Kolby Smith will start in New York. Kennison is also out, so WR Samie Parker could see another start. Croyle returned to full work and will start, but he has minimal value.
Out: DT Keith Traylor (ankle); Questionable: CB Travis Daniels (ankle), DE Jason Taylor (foot); Probable: DT Vonnie Holliday (knee), S Jereme Perry (ankle), LB Joey Porter (shoulder), T L.J. Shelton (ankle).
New York Jets
Questionable: C Nick Mangold (player decision), TE Chris Baker (back), QB Kellen Clemens (rib), TE James Dearth (foot), DE Shaun Ellis (shoulder), G Brandon Moore (neck), DT Dewayne Robertson (knee), WR Brad Smith (back); Full practice: WR Jerricho Cotchery (finger), WR Justin McCareins (thigh).
Fantasy take: Cotchery put in a full practice and will start in Week 17. Clemens will start against Kansas City if he's able, but he was limited in Thursday's practice.
Fantasy take: McCown put in full work in Friday's practice, but rookie QB JaMarcus Russell will start against San Diego. WR Jerry Porter (team decision), DT Warren Sapp (team decision), T Barry Sims (team decision) all returned to practice and will be active against San Diego.
Out: TE L.J. Smith (knee); Doubtful: S Brian Dawkins (foot), CB Lito Sheppard (knee); Probable: RB Brian Westbrook (knee), LB Omar Gaither (quadriceps), G Shawn Andrews (knee), CB Sheldon Brown (shin, ankle).
Fantasy take: Westbrook missed Friday's practice but is expected to start in Week 17. Smith is out against Buffalo, so TEs Matt Schobel and Brent Celek will see more work in his absence. The possible loss of Dawkins and Sheppard is good news for Buffalo's wide receivers.
Fantasy take: Roethlisberger was limited in Friday's practice, and reports indicate that he will miss Week 17. Veteran QB Charlie Batch will start in his absence.
San Diego Chargers
Out: RB Lorenzo Neal (fibula); Doubtful: LB Marques Harris (hand); Probable: K Nate Kaeding (fibula), LB Shawne Merriman (knee), DT Jamal Williams (ankle), DE Luis Castillo (ankle), LB Brandon Siler (shoulder).
San Francisco 49ers
Out: QB Trent Dilfer (concussion), QB Shaun Hill (back); Doubtful: WR Jason Hill (groin), CB Shawntae Spencer (quadriceps); Questionable: CB Marcus Hudson (knee), RB Michael Robinson (shoulder), LB Derek Smith (shoulder); Probable: WR Arnaz Battle (ankle), RB Frank Gore (ankle), LB Jeff Ulbrich (ankle).
Fantasy take: QB Chris Weinke will start with Dilfer and Hill listed as out. Gore was active in Friday's practice and will start in Cleveland. Battle was limited, so keep tabs on his status at gametime.
Fantasy take: Branch could miss Week 17, so WR D.J. Hackett has a chance to start in Atlanta. Alexander is listed as probable, but his time could be limited if he's rested for the postseason.
Questionable: LB Gilbert Gardner (calf), CB Nick Harper (groin), C Kevin Mawae (calf), G Benji Olson (team decision); Probable: DE Antwan Odom (ankle), DT Albert Haynesworth (hamstring), LB David Thornton (knee), RB LenDale White (knee).
Fantasy take: Haynesworth and White put in a full practice on Friday and should be active in Week 17.
