Injuries to monitor through the weekend

Kellen Winslow
Injury: Illness
Status: Questionable
Prognosis: "He did not practice Thursday, but there is a good chance he could practice on Friday."

Winslow's injury has been top notch blog fodder the last two weeks. But all kidding aside, fantasy owners need to know if one of the game's best tight ends will be on the field this weekend. Winslow practiced Friday so there is a chance he goes. Even so, he doesn't look like very good start at Washington. Scour the waiver wire to find a suitable one week replacement.

Willie Parker
Injury: Knee
Status: Doubtful
Prognosis: "He suffered a setback to his knee injury in practice with a sprained MCL."

If rookie Rashard Mendenhall was healthy, Parker would certainly have been scratched by now. But it's possible Parker could try to play against Cincinnati, after resting last week during Pittsburgh's bye. Still, it would seem to take a miracle to get Parker on the field this weekend. Expect Mewelde Moore to get the start at running back for the Steelers.

Calvin Johnson
Injury: Head
Status: Questionable
Prognosis: "He is dealing with a head injury."

The departure of Roy (E.) Williams means great things for CJ fantasy owners. Johnson has progressed so well in his second season that he made Williams expendable. Johnson enters this week's game against a weak Texans' secondary a little nicked up. But if he plays on Sunday, and he should, start him.
