The following is a list of injured players for Week 8 and the fantasy implications of all the major injuries:
Fantasy take: DeShaun Foster (toe) has been taken off the injury report and will start in Week 8. Carr will be active, but Vinny Testaverde has been named the starter against Indianapolis.
Doubtful: S Brandon McGowan (elbow); Questionable: CB Nathan Vasher (groin), DT Darwin Walker (knee); Probable: DE Alex Brown (back).
Fantasy take: Rudi Johnson missed Friday's practice and reports out of Cincinnati suggest he could miss Week 8, so be sure to keep tabs on his status throughout the weekend. Kenny Watson would start in his absence. Chad Johnson should be fine to face Pittsburgh. The Bengals are riddled with injuries on defense, which is good news for Pittsburgh's offensive skill position players.
Questionable: TE Darnell Dinkins (hand), RB Jamal Lewis (foot); Probable: WR Joe Jurevicius (knee), CB Kenny Wright (player decision).
Fantasy take: Lewis was limited in Friday's practice, so his status for Week 8 remains uncertain. He could be a gametime decision. Jason Wright would start and share carries with Jerome Harrison if Lewis were inactive.
Doubtful: S Idrees Bashir (ribs), DE Kalimba Edwards (knee); Probable: WR Troy Walters (quadriceps), CB Fernando Bryant (ankle), S Gerald Alexander (quadriceps).
**Green Bay Packers**
Out: CB Will Blackmon (foot), TE Bubba Franks (knee), DT Justin Harrell (ankle); Doubtful: CB Frank Walker (knee); Questionable: T Junius Coston (ankle), DE Cullen Jenkins (ankle), WR Ruvell Martin (back); Probable: CB Al Harris (back), DE Mike Montgomery (knee), RB Vernand Morency (knee), C Scott Wells (eye), CB Charles Woodson (foot), RB DeShawn Wynn (neck).
Fantasy take: Donald Lee will see more work with Franks out. Wynn practiced late in the week and will start in Week 8, so he's a decent sleeper against a porous Denver run defense. Harris and Woodson should both be active, which is good news for the value of the Green Bay defense.
Fantasy take: Schaub is listed as probable but could be a gametime decision, so Sage Rosenfels could make his first start of the season. Johnson was limited in Friday's practice and is still not expected to return in Week 8. Green is listed as probable, but the matchup against the Chargers is not attractive. Brown should be fine to kick in San Diego.
Questionable: TE Bryan Fletcher (leg), CB Matt Giordano (hamstring), WR Marvin Harrison (knee), LB Freddy Keiaho (head), T Tony Ugoh (shoulder), LB Victor Worsley (foot).
Fantasy take: Harrison missed Friday's practice, so be sure to keep tabs on his status at gametime. If he is inactive, look for Anthony Gonzalez and Dallas Clark to see more work in the pass attack.
Out: QB David Garrard (ankle), K Josh Scobee (right quadriceps); Questionable: DE Reggie Hayward (hamstring), RB Maurice Jones-Drew (knee), DT Tony McDaniel (wrist), DT Marcus Stroud (ankle), CB Brian Williams (hamstring); Probable: LB Daryl Smith (hip), TE George Wrighster (head).
Out: DT Vonnie Holliday (ankle), TE David Martin (groin), LB Zach Thomas (neck), S Travares Tillman (knee); Probable: S Courtney Bryan (quadriceps), DT Keith Traylor (illness), LB Abraham Wright (knee).
Fantasy take: Morris could miss several more weeks, so Kevin Faulk now has fantasy relevance behind Laurence Maroney. Kyle Brady will see more work if Watson is out for a second consecutive week.
Fantasy take: Burress missed Friday's practice but should still start in Week 8. Ward's status is in doubt, so be sure to check the NFL.com inactives list this weekend. Reuben Droughns would see more work behind Brandon Jacobs if Ward is inactive.
**New York Jets**
Out: LB Jonathan Vilma (knee); Questionable: TE Chris Baker (back), WR Laveranues Coles (calf), DT Dewayne Robertson (knee); Probable: QB Chad Pennington (ankle), WR Justin McCareins (calf), TE Jason Pociask (back), CB Hank Poteat (chest), TE Sean Ryan (knee), S Eric Smith (thigh).
Fantasy take: McCown returned to practice this week, but it appears that Daunte Culpepper will start in Week 8.
Fantasy take: Sheppard and Spikes should both be active in Week 8, and that's good news for the value of the Philadelphia defense. Smith practiced without issues on Friday, but he's still a risk for fantasy owners.
Fantasy take: Davis is now third on the depth chart after the acquisition of Chris Chambers, so he has little fantasy value.
Fantasy take: Gore was limited in Friday's practice, but he is expected to start in Week 8. Still, fantasy owners who have Gore might want to add Michael Robinson as insurance. Jackson missed another practice, so look for Ashley Lelie to start against New Orleans. Smith is expected to return this week, but he's a risk for fantasy owners.
Fantasy take: Pittman remains out, so Earnest Graham will start against Jacksonville. Smith is listed as doubtful, so Jerramy Stevens could be in line for more work. Ike Hilliard and Maurice Stovall will see more work if Clayton is inactive.
Fantasy take: Young returned to full practice and should start in Week 8. LenDale White would see an increase in value if Brown is out for a second consecutive week. Roydell Williams will continue to see more opportunities if Jones is limited or out. Simon announced his retirement from the NFL this week.
