Fantasy Football Injury Report: Brian Westbrook, Carson Palmer Out

InGameNow .Contributor IISeptember 28, 2008

Do *not* play these tier one fantasy football players. They are not playing in NFL Week Four and SI.com is reporting that the big names Brain Westbrook and Carson Palmer will indeed not play:

Justin Fargas RB OAK
Joey Galloway WR TB
Donte Stallworth WR CLE
Devin Hester WR CHI
James Jones WR GB
L.J. Smith TE PHI
Redskins DST: With Jason Taylor, Fred Smoot, and others are out.

And the big guns:

Brian Westbrook, RB PHI

Westbrook is going to be a game-time decision, but sources tell me that the gameplan is going to be built the same way whether he plays or not. If Westbrook plays, he’ll get a few carries, but they’re more focused on getting him in space where he doesnt have to make as many cuts and won’t have 300-pound men falling on him.

And that’s a big “if.” Correll Buckhalter is going to get more of the carries, if not all of them, so if you handcuffed, that’s the way to go.

 

Carson Palmer QB CIN

Palmer is still expected to play, but there’s enough concern about his elbow that I’m downgrading him. We’ll know soon if he’s ready to go in what should be a fantasy barnburner.
