Hey fantasy fanatics! Who’s ready for week 11? How are your teams shapin’ up? Let’s take a look at the important injuries for Week 11 and who we all need to keep an eye on heading into Sunday.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green will be a game time decision for Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens. Green injured his knee catching a touchdown pass during the game against Pittsburgh last Sunday. If you have someone to replace Green, I’d suggest doing so. Since they are playing the Ravens, there may not be a lot of opportunities for Green to get you the fantasy points needed for your team.

Running back Peyton Hillis, Cleveland Browns, has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, causing him to miss his fifth consecutive game due to a hamstring injury.
Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub injured his foot this past week and will sit out for a significant amount of time. Schaub may be out for the rest of the season, depending on whether or not he’ll have to have surgery.
Steve Johnson, Buffalo Bills wide receiver, did not practice on Wednesday due to a shoulder injury he received during the game against the Dallas Cowboys last week. His status is uncertain for Sunday’s game. Watch to see if he can practice on Thursday before deciding whether or not to keep him.
New York Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson will not play in Thursday’s game against the Denver Broncos due to a MCL sprain.
Running back Willis McGahee, Denver Broncos, is still uncertain about his return to the field for Thursday’s game against the New York Jets. The Broncos also lost running back Knowshon Moreno to a torn ACL and was put on the IR.
Matt Cassel, quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs, suffered a hand injury in week 10 and has had surgery on his throwing hand. Cassel will be out for some time but hopes to return before the end of the season.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Leonard Hankerson is out for the season due to an injury in his hip.
Quarterback Michael Vick, for the Philadelphia Eagles, sustained a few cracked ribs after week 10’s game. I wouldn’t expect him to play this week, but it is Vick so who knows! Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin also had a rough day on Sunday, suffering from a shoulder and hamstring injury. He did not practice on Wednesday.
Ahmad Bradshaw, running back for the New York Giants, did not practice on Wednesday. There has been a lot of speculation of the reason Bradshaw has missed two games is because of a cracked bone in his foot.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb has had limited practice this week after injuring his right foot. His status for Sunday’s game against San Fransisco 49ers is still doubtful.
Frank Gore, running back for the San Fransisco 49ers, came out of Sunday’s game with only a bruised knee and is expected to be fine for the game against the Arizona Cardinals in week 11.
The Seattle Seahawks are hoping to see the return of their wide receiver Sidney Rice this Sunday against the St. Louis Rams.
