Injuries to monitor through the weekend

Jason Witten
Injury: Ribs
Status: Questionable

Witten has only missed one game his entire career. Consider it a mix of toughness and good luck. But no one is sure what to make of a rib injury that limited him to only one catch last week against Tampa Bay. Witten probably shouldn't be playing, but he may try to go with Dallas facing division rival New York.

Without Tony Romo, Dallas needs all the offensive firepower they can get. But because they're without Romo, Witten doesn't look like a strong start this week, even if he does play. Brad Johnson just can't stretch the field.

Steven Jackson
Injury: Thigh
Status: Questionable

A game-time decision by coach Jim Haslett to sit Jackson last week proved consequential in many fantasy leagues. If you were lucky enough to have Jackson out of your starting lineup, the week of rest can be considered a blessing. Jackson is still limited in practice but is taking more reps than last week. Expect him to play against the Cardinals on Sunday.

Santana Moss
Injury: Hamstring
Status: Questionable

A hamstring injury has kept Moss off the practice field the last two days. The Redskins are going to need him this week against the Steelers, though, so expect him to play. Moss has become a must start every week in fantasy.
