Week 12 injury report: Big name RBs questionable

Teams have released their official Friday injury reports for Week 12. Here’s a look at some of the notable names:

  • Bengals RB Cedric Benson (hip) returned to take part in a limited portion of practice on Friday and is officially questionable for Sunday against the Browns, although a good sign is that coach Marvin Lewis said Benson is ready to play. LB Keith Rivers (calf) is also questionable.
  • The Vikings have RB Adrian Peterson (ankle, illness) and CB Antoine Winfield (foot) listed as questionable, while starting RG Anthony Herrera (concussion) missed practice all week and is doubtful. Vikings coach Brad Childress indicated he believes Peterson will be fine to face the Bears.
  • The Steelers won’t have S Troy Polamalu (knee) for the second consecutive game against the Ravens. Ben Roethlisberger (head) is listed as questionable, but may decide sit out as a precaution. DE Travis Kirschke is also questionable.
  • RB Julius Jones (chest), who missed last week’s game, is questionable for the Seahawks. Coach Jim Mora revealed Friday that Jones is still in pain and will be a game-time decision.
  • Chargers DE Luis Castillo (calf) missed practice all week and is officially doubtful, while LB Shawne Merriman (foot) and C Nick Hardwick (ankle) are both questionable. Merriman was also held out of practice this week.
  • LB Ray Lewis (foot) and S Ed Reed (illness, foot) are both questionable for the Ravens.
  • Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (Achilles) is listed as questionable, as usual, but he took part in full practice on Thursday and Friday.
