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
