Teams have released their latest Week 6 injury reports. Here’s a look at the developments among notable names through Thursday.

  • Giants QB Eli Manning (foot) again was a limited participant in practice Thursday, as he continues to recover from plantar fasciitis in his right heel. Manning started last week against the Raiders and is expected to be a go Sunday at New Orleans. Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw (ankle, foot), who injured himself against Oakland, has been held out of practice all week. After being limited Wednesday, TE Kevin Boss (ankle) fully practiced Thursday.
  • Lions QB Matthew Stafford (knee), who missed last week’s loss to the Steelers, was a limited participant Wednesday but was held out of practice Thursday. WR Calvin Johnson (knee) has been held out all week after injuring himself during the first quarter against the Steelers.
  • Bengals QB Carson Palmer (left thumb) fully participated in practice for the second consecutive day. DT Tank Johnson (foot) was a limited participant after completing a full practice the previous day.
  • Steelers S Troy Polamalu (knee), who hasn’t played since being injured in Week 1, has been a full participant in practice all week. So has RB Willie Parker (toe), who was sidelined the previous two weeks. LB James Farrior (elbow) was back at full participation after sitting out the previous day.
  • Panthers WR Steve Smith (knee) was a limited participant. RB Jonathan Stewart (achilles) didn’t practice Wednesday but was back at full participation Thursday.
  • Saints RB Pierre Thomas (hamstring) has been a limited participant in practice this week. Thomas missed the first two games this season but has been impressive since his return. RB Mike Bell (knee), who has missed the last two games after starting the season in place of Thomas, has been a full participant this week.
  • Seahawks WR Nate Burleson (back), who had a big game against the Jaguars last weekend, has been a limited participant in practice this week.
