Week 13 injuries: DeAngelo sits, Benson practices

Teams have released their practice participation reports for Wednesday. Here’s what’s happening with some of the notable injuries:

  • Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle), QB Jake Delhomme (right finger) and RB Jonathan Stewart (Achilles) did not practice on Wednesday. Delhomme is expected to miss Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay, with Matt Moore starting in his place. Williams was injured last week but did return to play in the game.
  • The Saints had 14 players who were listed as limited on Wednesday. Among them: RB Pierre Thomas (wrist), RB Mike Bell (knee/neck), RB Reggie Bush (knee), LB Jonathan Vilma (knee), LB Scott Fujita (knee), TE Jeremy Shockey (elbow), CB Jabari Greer (groin), and CB Chris McAlister (knee). CB Randall Gay (hamstring), CB Tracy Porter (knee), and WR Lance Moore (ankle/hamstring), and LB Marvin Mitchell (hamstring) missed practice.
  • Rams RB Steven Jackson (back) did not practice, although that was to be expected after he played last Sunday despite missing practice all week with back spasms. The Rams also held out C Jason Brown (knee) and T Jason Smith (concussion) from Wednesday’s workout, while James Laurinaitis (shoulder) and G Richie Incognito (foot) were limited.
  • Seahawks RB Julius Jones (chest), who has missed the previous two games, fully practiced on Wednesday, which bodes well for his chances to play against the 49ers.
  • Cardinals QB Kurt Warner (head) fully participated after missing last week’s game in Tennessee with a concussion.
  • Chargers LB Shawne Merriman (foot), who played sparingly against the Chiefs last week, sat out on Wednesday.
  • Redskins DT Albert Haynesworth (ankle) was limited in practice as he tries to return after missing the last two games. FB Mike Sellers (ankle) was also limited while CB DeAngelo Hall (knee), who missed last week’s game, did not practice. RB Clinton Portis (concussion) has already been ruled out.
  • Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew (knee) didn’t practice, although that has become the norm with Jacksonville’s leading rusher on Wednesdays. Meanwhile, WR Mike Sims-Walker (knee) and LB Justin Durant (head) were both listed as limited in practice.
  • Texans RB Steve Slaton (neck) and LB DeMeco Ryans (ankle) were both limited, while LB Brian Cushing (foot) and OT Duane Brown (knee) sat out. Cushing, who’s been hampered by the foot for most of the season, was given a day of rest.
  • The Bears had four players sit out: LB Lance Briggs (knee), DE Alex Brown (calf), T Orlando Pace (groin), and CB Charles Tillman (concussion).
