UPDATES: WR Percy Harvin and TE Aaron Hernandez are OUT.
As you all know things can change before Sunday kickoff so be sure to check back as we will be updating Injury status throughout the weekend and then every 10 minutes starting at 11:30 Sunday morning up until the 1pm kickoffs.
The depth at the RB position took another hit in week 9 as RUN DMCwas grounded with a high ankle sprain. Backup Mike Goodson is dealing with the same injury so the Silver & Black will turn to a dynamic duo of Marcel Reece and Taiwan Jones against Baltimore. Mcfadden has been one of the bigger injury risks during his early career (missed 19 games over first four seasons) and his production over the first half of the season has been mediocre at best. Fragile Felix has been mediocre at best in relief of Demarco Murray but will get another start in week 10 against Philly in the battle of coaches on the hot seay. Phil Tanner could be a deep sleeper worthy rostering especially in TD heavy leagues as he could be the short-term goal line back. Darren Sproles has been ruled out for the crucial game against the undefeated Atlanta Falcons. The Saints will employ a 3 headed monster of Pierre Thomas, Mark Ingram and Chris Ivory.
At the WR position, the Packers will use the bye week to rest Jordy Nelson and Greg Jennings. Percy Harvin (ankle) is listed as doubtful but the Vikes are holding out hope he can go against Detroit as they look to halt a 3 game losing streak. Steve Johnson (thigh) and Hakeem Nicks (knee) returned to practice and both are expected to play this week. Securing Domenik Hixon might be a smart move for Nicks owners.
