2011 IDP Infirmary: Week 5

Written By: Eric Olinger

In the immortal words of Freddy Mercury, “Another One Bites the Dust”! Another week and another big name player going down with an injury.

Kerry Rhodes- FS- Arizona Cardinals- OUT
Broken foot. Out indefinitely. Next man up on the depth chart is Rashad Johnson

Julius Peppers- DE- Chicago Bears- Probable
Peppers tweaked his knee in the Monday night game versus Detroit, but only missed a series and finished the game. There shouldn’t be anything to worry about.

Mario Williams- OLB- Houston Texans- Injured Reserve
Torn Pectoral muscle. He was placed on IR Monday and will miss the rest of the season. A complete boom or bust player in Houston’s 3-4 D, he will be replaced by Brooks Reed and Connor Barwin.

Justin Tuck- DE- NY Giants- Questionable
Still having issues with his neck and groin. One of the true bright spots for the G-Men is the emergence of Jason Pierre-Paul and the healthy return of Osi Umenyiora. There isn’t a nuge need to rush Justin Tuck back before he is ready. Expect him to sit another week

Michael Griffin- FS- Tennessee Titans

Elbow- HE had an X-ray taken Monday and despite supposed torn ligaments, he isn’t expected to miss any time after the Week 6 Bye.

LeRoy Hill- WLB- Seattle Seahawks
Hamstring- Slight strain but expected to be fine coming out of the Bye week

***NOTE: Please use a different display name than "Anonymous" when asking advice questions. It gets difficult to discern who I am answering when multiple people post under the same name.

Also, when asking for weekly matchup advice please mention the weekly opponent for each player you are listing. This helps me answer questions more quickly.
In addition, always list your scoring system as my advice will differ depending on the type of system being used.

Lastly, please don't duplicate the same exact post on other pages. We get notified of all comments that are posted and we will make sure to answer questions as quickly as we can. Posting the same question multiple times on different pages just slows the whole process down for everyone.
