From an Insider Article. I'm sure its on the NFL injury report as well (which gets updated), i'm just not going to track it down right now.

http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/insider/columns/story?columnist=clayton_john&id=2666114

Levi Jones (starting LT) and Deltha O'Neal (starting CB) are both not going to play. It's being reported starting S Dexter Jackson also is likely to not play (but is currently listed as Questionable). Willie Anderson, Housh, and Rudi Johnson all practiced and will play.

This is in addition to already reported out starting C Rich Braham, starting OG Bobbie Williams, starting LB Brian Simmons and #4 WR Kelley Washington.

This means that the starting LT, OG, and C are out. 3 of 5 O-line positions. They'll have Whitworth starting at LT, a rookie but with a few games under his belt already.

If the defensive line has a good day we might actually get something going on defense.

Deltha O'Neal, Dexter Jackson, and Simmons helps the offense I suspect. That's two of their better defensive players (Simmons and O'Neal) and 3 total starters out.

But honestly I our offense didn't need the help.

I'm feeling optomistic (but I felt optomistic about the Steelers as well so, yeah).

Oh and it was reported that Joe Horn, Fred Thomas, and Nate Lawrie all practiced and therefore can be expected to play. Horn and Thomas got upgraded to Probable, Lawrie is still listed as questionable.

Only Conwell is out

We need Fred Thomas in a big way, I hope his bad hammy don't slow him down!

I don't but into people playing and not playing, how many times do the backups play as well as the starters? Sometimes even better. We thought the first Tampa game was going to be an easy win cause of the rookie guards, we barely beat them

Uh, usually the backups play a lot worse. Which is why they are backups. That Tampa had an ok first game vs us is a fluke. They preformed poorly afterwards including in our 31-14 blowout of them. :dunno:

Carolina played with a patchwork line against us as I recall.

any team can have a coming out party so lets just wait and see which team shows up.
