NFL Injuries: Quarterbacks Down

Down to the final two weeks of the season, many NFL teams still fighting for a playoff spot or playoff positioning must overcome injuries down the stretch. Here is the NFL injury report heading into Week 16.

Both starting quarterbacks may be out when St. Louis visits Pittsburgh this week as Ben Roethlisberger (ankle) and Sam Bradford (ankle) are both currently considered doubtful. With Pittsburgh’s playoff hopes depending on the health of Roethlisberger and St. Louis’ future hopes depending on Bradford, it wouldn’t be surprising to see both players miss Sunday even if their condition improves. Pittsburgh is currently a 17-point favorite at home at 5Dimes.

After losing breakout star DeMarco Murray (ankle) in the running game, Dallas couldn’t afford this week’s injury to Felix Jones. Jones has rushed for 100 yards in back-to-back weeks, but is currently considered questionable for this Saturday’s game against Philadelphia with tightness in his hamstring. Dallas is currently a 1.5-point favorite at BetOnline.

Still in the hunt for a first-round bye, the Houston Texans will once again be without Andre Johnson (hamstring) this Thursday against Indianapolis as he is out with the same injury that has kept him out for each of the last three weeks. Indianapolis, coming fresh off their first win of the season last week, will likely be without tight end Dallas Clark as he is currently considered doubtful with a neck injury. Indianapolis is a 6.5-point home underdog at Bovada.

Losers of their third straight last week, the Oakland Raiders just can’t get healthy. Darren McFadden (foot) appears to be lost for the season at this point, and star wide receiver Jacoby Ford (foot) is considered doubtful to play this Saturday in Kansas City. Oakland’s passing defense struggled badly against Calvin Johnson last week and will miss free safety Michael Huff (hamstring) who is also considered doubtful. Oakland is a 1.5-point underdog at TopBet.

Josh McCown is set to take over at quarterback for the Chicago Bears on Christmas Day Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Caleb Hanie is not injured, but has been very ineffective for the Bears in leading the team to four straight losses with nine interceptions to just three touchdown passes. Chicago is a 13-point road underdog at BetOnline.
