Monday Infirmary Report

A one-liner (mostly) look at the latest injury updates from around the league in Week 15:

  • Saints coach Sean Payton said tests on the injured left knee of CB Jabari Greer came back negative, but didn’t elaborate on his status, while KR Courtney Roby has been cleared by doctors to return to the field.
  • Ravens coach John Harbaugh is optimistic TE Todd Heap will return, as soon as this week, after missing the last two games with a hamstring injury.
  • Lions coach Jim Schwartz won’t say who is his starter at quarterback, but did reveal QB Drew Stanton played through a separated left shoulder.
  • Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt opened his news conference Monday by saying LB Joey Porter suffered a triceps injury against the Panthers and is awaiting an MRI exam. Early Doucet, who sustained a hip flexor injury, is also scheduled for testing, according to The Arizona Republic.
  • Jets QB Mark Sanchez had an MRI exam on his right shoulder Monday, but is expected to be fine to play against the Bears.
  • While there’s still no official word on the leg injury suffered by Browns CB Eric Wright, coach Eric Mangini said Wright won’t play again this season.
  • The Steelers expect TE Heath Miller, who has missed the last two games with a concussion, to play Thursday night against the Panthers.
  • Eagles coach Andy Reid re-confirmed that FS Nate Allen ruptured the patellar tendon in his right knee and will undergo season-ending surgery.
  • A non-update of sorts from Packers coach Mike McCarthy, who said he’ll know more about the status of concussed QB Aaron Rodgers later in the week.
  • Texans RB Arian Foster sat out the final 10 minutes against the Titans due to a muscle spasm in his glute, and not his sore ankle.
  • The Vikings have placed LG Steve Hutchinson (broken hand) on injured reserve, per Judd Zulgad of the Star Tribune.
  • Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said CB Marcus Trufant is “feeling better” after lower back stiffness caused him to miss much of Sunday’s game, but will most likely sit out practice on Wednesday.
