Week 3 follow up

Here's a breakdown on Week 3 injuries that will affect fantasy football owners:

Chad Pennington
, QB, New York Jets. It appears Pennington's season is over thanks to a torn rotator cuff. With backup Jay Fiedler also hurting, the Jets are looking at signing Vinny Testaverde.

Kurt Warner
, QB, Arizona. Warner suffered a groin injury in the second quarter of the Cardinals' loss at Seattle, putting Josh McCown at QB. McCown was 10-of-23 the rest of the way for 97 yards with an interception. If Warner is out an extended time, the value of wide receivers Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin will take a hit.

David Akers, PK, Philadelphia. After gutting it out Sunday with his hamstring injury, Akers will be on the bench this week and probably for the next several weeks. He'll be replaced by untested Todd France for now.

Desmond Clark, TE, Chicago. Clark left the Bears game with Cincinnati with a neck injury. With the way QB Kyle Orton is struggling though, Clark hasn't been a solid play this season.

Arnaz Battle, WR, San Francisco. Battle had another good week with six catches against Dallas for 68 yards and a touchdown. But he injured his hamstring and is questionable to play next week.

Travis Henry, RB, Tennessee. Reports are surfacing that Henry will be suspended by the league for four weeks for a positive test for a banned substance.

Donovan McNabb, QB, Philadelphia. McNabb may have a sports hernia. Keep an eye on this situation. It may require surgery.
