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.

We will then check back in with updates starting at 3pm for the late games.

The QB position took a major hit with four signal callers (Vick, Big Ben, Alex Smith and Jay Cutler) knocked out in week 10. The Steelers offense has floundered the past 2 weeks under Charlie Batch / Byron Leftwich but Big Ben has been ruled out which means all members of the Steeler receiving corps are flex plays at best without Ben under center.  Mike Vick will miss his 3rd straight game on Sunday Night but Nick Foles is not a recommended play behind an injury riddled O-line against a solid Cowboy pass defense The depth at the RB position takes a major hit as injuries have many owners scrambling to waiver wires.

Fantasy owners could welcome back two early round picks as Demarco Murray and RUN DMC have returned to practice and appear in line to suit up for week 13. Both RBs could be eased back into action so Felix Jones and Marcel Reece should maintain fantasy relevance in the short term. MJD will also remain sidelined and backup Rashad Jennings will replace Jalen Parmelee (placed on IR) – no Jags RB is more than a low end flex play despite the favorable week 13 matchup.

At the WR position,  Percy Harvin is dealing with a severe ankle sprain and is a major question mark  for the crucial NFC North matchup in Lambeau. Dallas’ Miles Austin is dealing with multiple injuries and owners should consider their alternatives since Austin is a game time decison and has a Sunday night kickoff.  One positive note is that veteran Greg Jennings (groin surgery) is expected back after putting in a full week of practive. He could be eased back into action but is a potential WR3 option against a mediocre Minnesota secondary.
