Mid-week news

Michael Vick, QB, Atlanta. Vick practiced more Wednesday than he did at any point last week, when he was on the bench with a knee injury. He remains questionable.

Carolina running backs. Stephen Davis (knee), DeShaun Foster (knee) and Brad Hoover (shoulder) are questionable to play this week. All sat out practice Wednesday. Pick up Nick Goings.

Thomas Jones, RB, Chicago. It's looking more likely the Cedric Benson will make his first career start as Jones battles a knee injury.

Rudi Johnson, RB, Cincinnati. Johnson didn't practice Wednesday because of a sore knee but is expected to play Sunday against Tennessee.

Braylon Edwards, WR, Lee Suggs, RB, Cleveland. Both are out this week.

Julius Jones, RB, Dallas. Jones was limited Wednesday with an ankle injury but has vowed to play.

Roy Williams, WR, Detroit. Williams (quad) didn't practice Wednesday.

Andre Johnson, WR, Houston. Johnson was limited in practice Wednesday because of a knee injury.

Joe Horn, WR, New Orleans. Horn was able to practice Wednesday. Keep and eye on his sore hamstring before you put him back in the lineup.

Hines Ward, WR, Steelers. Ward (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Antwaan Randle El, WR, Steelers. Randle El (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers. Roethlisberger (knee) did not practice Wednesday. It appears Charlie Batch will replace him Sunday.
