Injury and Player Reports 11/4

Chris Simms was placed on the IR ending the QB's season. Looks like Gradkowski will take over for the remainder of the year. If he can figure out how to run this offense a bit more effectively he might be a possible fantasy pick-up. Right now he's a spot start at best.

Culpepper may also be headed to the IR, leaving it up to Harrington to be the Dolphins QB for the rest of the season. I would take Harrington over Culpepper as a fantasy player. The Dolphins are more than likely going to be playing from behind most of the games which gives Harrington the opportunity to air the ball out. This was obviously the case when he threw for a franchise record 62 attempts

Other injury news around the league:

Santana Moss ruled himself OUT for this sundays game

"It will be Mike Bell, not Tatum (turf toes), that likely see the majority of carries against the Steelers Sunday, the Denver Post reports." (Yahoo Sports) Tatum Bell has practiced, but it is uncertain how much he will play since he isn't 100%.

Plaxico Burress hasnt practiced all week and is unlikely to start. This pretty much kills me as I have to find another starting WR by tomorrow for my league. I had to find another replacement and I went with Kennison. My other option is Jenkins, but then I have to find someone to drop. Anyhow, Burress will be a gametime decision in this one, but it doesnt sound promising he will play.

Byron Leftwich is once again ruled OUT for this Sundays game. Gerrard will be the starter.

Bush returned to practice Thursday after taking Wednesday off. He's still listed as questionable, but he has said he is going to play. That means very little for Bush owners. He has been pretty limited, and Duece will continue to take the majority of the carries. I'd assume he will take more than usual due to Bush's injury.

I think thats about it, I have another article already written that should be posted tomorrow. Its all about Priest Holmes! Should be a good read, I made my GF read it lol.
