Mid-week news

Here's a look at how the injury front is shaping up prior to Week 4.

Issac Bruce, WR, St. Louis. Bruce has a painful turf toe injury and is doubtful this week. Get Kevin Curtis in your lineup.

Cade McCown, QB, Arizona. McCown will start in place of injured Kurt Warner this week, but is not a decent play.

Jerome Pathon, WR, Atlanta. The veteran wideout signed with Atlanta Wednesday. He's not worth picking up.

Steve McNair, QB, Tennessee. No surprise here for the oft-injured McNair. McNair sat out practice Wednesday with a sore foot. It's doubtful that will keep him out this weekend.

Drew Bennett, WR, Tennessee. Bennett also sat out practice Wednesday with a sore foot. He should play Sunday.

Brooks Bollinger, QB, N.Y. Jets. Bollinger will get the start against Baltimore with Chad Pennington and Jay Fiedler out. Newly-signed Vinny Testaverde will be the backup. Bollinger will be making his first career start against the Ravens. Sit all of your Jets this weekend.

Amos Zereoue
, RB, New England. Kevin Faulk is banged up, so the Pats signed Zereoue, releasing wide receiver Andre Davis. Davis won't be out of work long.

Jason Hanson
, PK, Detroit. Hanson has a sore hamstring. We saw what happened with Philadelphia's David Akers when he had a sore hammy. Keep an eye on the situation.

Donovan McNabb, QB, Philadelphia. Tests confirm that McNabb does have a sports hernia. This is a painful injury that will eventually require surgery to repair. He's going to play through it, or at least try to. Trade McNabb now if you can.
