Injuries to monitor through the weekend

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

There aren't as many big time fantasy players questionable because of injury this week, which is great news. LaDainian Tomlinson and Adrian Peterson, two players we featured last week, each played and played well during Week Three. What will Week Four have in store?

Here is a look at a few banged up players that will have a big affect on your fantasy team this weekend.

WR Joey Galloway- Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Injury: foot
Status: day-to-day

Galloway missed his first game of the season last week with a bum foot, but as we Bears fans know, it didn't affect the Bucs aerial attack one bit. Galloway didn't participate in practice on Thursday, and it's still unknown if he'll play Sunday against the Packers. With Brian Griese in for Jeff Garcia at quarterback, it appears John Gruden will be ordering for the pass more often. That means more chances for Galloway to rack up yards and touchdowns. Pay attention the rest of the week to see if he's going to play. If he is, put him in your lineup.

RB Brian Westbrook- Philadelphia Eagles
Injury: ankle
Status: day-to-day
Prognosis: "He has been diagnosed with an ankle strain, the MRI was negative."

From the team that burned the Bears last week to the player who hopes to do it this week. Brian Westbrook is unlikely to practice all week, but is expected to play on Sunday. Though he's one of the league's best backs, he's not a great start this week. The Bears D is stout against the run.

OT Jammal Brown- New Orleans Saints
Injury: groin
Status: day-to-day

Though Brown isn't eligible for fantasy football, he still has a big affect on Drew Brees and Reggie Bush. Brown left last week during the second quarter, and his status is uncertain for Week Four. He practiced on a limited basis on Thursday.
