Typically during injury/practice reports, I just chart out everything as an informational post. This keeps you guys in the loop, providing an idea of how our guys (and opponents) are working through the week.
However, this week, I wanted to go through some things.
- One has to wonder how serious Corey Mays' ankle injury is. Since the week against the Cowboys, Mays has been listed as either doubtful or out. He's listed this week as doubtful with a nagging ankle injury he suffered a few weeks back against the Browns. He hasn't been active since.
- If anyone thought Houshmandzadeh would take off a week because of injury, then they don't know Houshmandzadeh. Since 2005, Houshmandzadeh has missed four games -- two in 2005 with a hand injury, two in 2006 with an ankle injury.
- However, speaking of wide receivers, with Houshmandzadeh dealing with an ankle problem, they've lost Caldwell for perhaps a month. Jerome Simpson is doubtful with an ankle injury and Antonio Chatman is probable with the same injury.
- In fact, the Bengals have three receivers with bum ankles.
