Another week, another slate of injuries. Let’s take a look at what the Week 2 injury report holds for your fantasy lineup.

Red indicates out, orange indicates questionable.

Arizona:

Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring): Fitz has been limited all week with a hamstring injury he apparently suffered in practice. This is one to watch heading into Sunday’s game against Detroit.

Andre Roberts (quad): Roberts has been limited in practice with a quad injury and is officially listed as questionable. Keep an eye on the his and Fitzgerald’s status, this could turn into a big game for Michael Floyd.

Rashard Mendenhall (hamstring): Mendenhall has been limited in practice this week, also having caught the outbreak of leg injuries in the Cards’ locker room. He was questionable last week too but this is one to check before starting him on Sunday.

Rob Housler (ankle):Housler missed the opener and is likely to miss this week’s affair with the Lions as he continues to deal with an ankle injury.

Atlanta:

Julio Jones (knee): Jones returned to practice on Thursday after missing Wednesday’s workout. He was limited and officially listed as questionable but is expected to play on Sunday.

Roddy White (ankle): White has missed practice all week after playing through an ankle sprain on Sunday. He’s expected to play through it once again but his touches will likely be limited once again.

Baltimore:

Jacoby Jones (knee): Jones will miss four-to-six weeks with a sprained MCL.

Bernard Pierce (thigh): Pierce was limited in practice with a thigh injury but is expected to play against the Browns on Sunday.

Cleveland:

Travis Benjamin (thigh): Benjamin was limited in practice with a thigh injury and is questionable heading into Sunday’s game against the Ravens.

Josh Gordon (suspension): Gordon is suspended through Week 2 but will be eligible to return in Week 3.

Dallas:

Dez Bryant (foot): Bryant had a full practice on Thursday and should be good to go against Kansas City.

Tony Romo (ribs): Romo had a full practice on Thursday and is fully expected to play on Sunday.

Lance Dunbar (foot): After missing the season opener, Dunbar is back in full practice and is expected to play on Sunday. Could be a sleeper.

Detroit:

Reggie Bush (groin, finger): Bush is a bit banged up as per usual but had a full practice and is good to go for Sunday.

Green Bay:

Jermichael Finley (toe): Finley was limited in practice this week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against Washington. Keep an eye on his status heading into the weekend.

Houston:

Arian Foster (calf): Foster had a full practice and is fully expected to play on Sunday.

Ben Tate (shoulder): Tate had a full practice and is fully expected to go against the Titans.

Owen Daniels (back, groin): Daniels has been limited in practice with groin and back injuries. He’s questionable heading into Sunday’s contest against the Titans so check his status before starting him.

Indianapolis:

Dwayne Allen (hip): Allen hasn’t practiced at all this week after sustaining a hip injury on Sunday and his status for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins is up in the air. Coby Fleener would get the start if he’s out.

Jacksonville:

Blaine Gabbert (hand): Gabbert is out of Sunday’s game against Oakland leaving Chad Henne as the Week 2 starter.

Marcedes Lewis (calf): Lewis hasn’t practiced all week and is increasingly questionable to go on Sunday against the Raiders.

Cecil Shorts (groin): Shorts was limited in practice with a groin injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game but is likely to go against Oakland.

Kansas City:

Jamaal Charles (quad): Charles finally participated in practice on Thursday and is likely to go on Sunday but make sure to check his status before the game.

New England:

Danny Amendola (groin): Amendola will not play on Thursday against the Jets and could be out until Week 4.

Shane Vereen (wrist): Vereen is out until Week 11 after undergoing wrist surgery.

Brandon Bolden (knee): Bolden will be a gametime decision after being limited all week in practice with a knee injury.

Leon Washington (thigh): Washington will be a gametime decision after he was limited in practice all week with a thigh injury. If both of them sit out, LeGarrette Blount is the breakout star of the night.

Rob Gronkowski (forearm): Gronk will miss Week 2 against the Jets but has not been ruled out for Week 3.

Zach Sudfeld (hamstring): Sudfeld is questionable against the Jets after being limited in practice by a hammy injury. He’ll be a gametime call.

New York Giants:

Da’Rel Scott (knee): Scott appears to be good to go after leaving Wednesday’s practice with a knee injury.

New York Jets:

Mark Sanchez (shoulder): Sanchez will likely miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury, leaving Brady Quinn as the team’s only veteran backup.

Jeremy Kerley (concussion): Kerley is out for Thursday’s game against the Pats which means Clyde Gates or Ben Obamanu could get some extra looks.

Pittsburgh:

Le’Veon Bell (foot): Bell is out for Monday’s game against the Bengals with a foot sprain.

Heath Miller (knee): Miller finally returned to practice on Thursday, although he was limited. He’s listed as questionable for Monday’s game and should be avoided.

Seattle:

Sidney Rice (knee): Rice was limited in practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the 49ers so check back on his status over the weekend.

San Francisco:

LaMichael James (knee): James is out for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks.

St. Louis:

Daryl Richardson (foot): DRich was limited in practice but is expected to play against the Falcons.

Tennessee:

Shonn Greene (knee): Greene hasn’t practiced all week and his status for Sunday’s game against the Texans is up in the air. I’d avoid him this week, and most weeks.
