Monday wrap

Ahman Green, RB, Green Bay. The injuries continue to mount for the Packers. Green, their workhorse running back, is out for the season after tearing a tendon in his thigh. Tony Fisher will be the primary ballcarrier now.

Robert Ferguson, WR, Green Bay. Ferguson will miss at least a month with a torn lateral cruciate ligament. Antonio Chatman moves into the starting lineup opposite Donald Driver.

Trent Dilfer, WB, Cleveland. After a hot start, Trent Dilfer has begun playing like, well, Trent Dilfer. At 2-4, the Browns may take a look at rookie Charlie Frye at QB.

Jose Cortez, PK, Dallas. After missing a critical field goal attempt Sunday, Jose Cortez was fired by head coach Bill Parcells. The Cowboys signed Shaun Suisham, who was in training camp with the Steelers, to take Cortez' place.

Jeff Garcia, QB, Detroit. Garcia will continue as Detroit's starting quarterback.

Steve McNair, QB, Tennessee. McNair sat Sunday's game at Arizona, but is expected to return to practice this week. Keep an eye on the situation. Backup Billy Volek left Sunday's game with a concussion.

Kevin Johnson, WR, Detroit. Johnson suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon and is out for the season.

Chris Simms, QB, Tampa Bay. With starter Brian Griese out for the season, Simms gets his first start of the season this week against San Francisco. Talk about having good luck.
