Fantasy Final Countdown chat, noon ET

Be sure to stop by and check out my live chat, starting this Sunday at noon EST here on NFL.com!

Bucs RB Ward to start with Williams, Graham injured

Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris announced that RB Derrick Ward will start Sunday against the Giants, his former team, while Cadillac Williams (knee) and Earnest Graham (hamstring) nurse injuries. Williams and Graham both are listed as questionable on the team’s injury report.

Roundup: Are Eagles ready for ‘Vick-cat’?

Injuries have forced Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg to add a few more pages to the playbook this season. Last weekend against the Saints, the Eagles ran the Wildcat offense nine times. This week, versatile QB Michael Vick is eligible to play, but how many snaps will he take?

Four Colts starting defenders questionable vs. Cards

Four Colts defenders — LB Gary Brackett (knee), DE Dwight Freeney (back), CB Kelvin Hayden (hamstring) and LB Clint Session (ankle) — are listed as questionable on the team’s injury report for Sunday night’s game against the Cardinals.

Patriots WRs Moss, Welker questionable vs. Falcons

One week after facing the Jets without Wes Welker, the Patriots could be without Welker and fellow WR Randy Moss, who was held out of Friday’s practice with a back injury. Welker, who’s nursing a knee injury, also missed practice Friday, and his status for Sunday’s meeting with the Falcons is expected to be a game-time decision.

Redskins RB Portis misses practice; now questionable

Check out my fantasy spin on the news and notes from the most pressing injuries around the league, including LaDainian Tomlinson and Randy Moss.

Browns RB Lewis doubtful to play vs. Ravens

Browns RB Jamal Lewis is doubtful to play Sunday against the Ravens because of a hamstring injury that has kept him from practicing all week. If Lewis can’t play, the rushing duties are expected to be shared by Jerome Harrison and James Davis, the latter of whom is listed as probable with a shoulder injury.

Rams rookie OT Smith doubtful vs. Packers

Rams rookie RT Jason Smith is doubtful to play against the Packers on Sunday because of a knee injury. The No. 2 overall draft pick started in the Rams’ first two games.

Redskins RB Portis questionable vs. Lions

Redskins RB Clinton Portis is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Lions because of an ankle injury. Portis was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday, but he sat out today’s session.

Jets CBs Sheppard, Strickland ruled out vs. Titans

Jets CBs Lito Sheppard (quadricep) and Donald Strickland (ankle) have been ruled out of Sunday’s matchup with the Titans. Both suffered injuries against the Patriots last week.

Vikings rookie WR Harvin dealing with severe migraines

Vikings WR Percy Harvin has been held out of practice for the past two days because of severe migraine headaches, according to a source with knowledge of the situation, and he is listed as questionable to play in Sunday’s home game against the 49ers.

Week 3: Random thoughts and worthless predictions

Steve Wyche gives his thoughts and predictions for Week 3.

Fines passed out to two Texans, one Eagle

NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports that Texans WRs Andre Johnson and Jacoby Jones and Eagles CB Sheldon Brown were fined by the league for various infractions.

Make Choice your selection as handcuff to Barber

Tashard Choice is a great handcuff option for Marion Barber and should be added to your fantasy team if you have the Cowboys’ starting running back.

Revis: I’m not going to trash talk

Jets CB Darrelle Revis checked in via team cam today to chat with Kara Henderson on NFL Network’s Around The League.
