Week 4 follow-up

Michael Vick, QB, Atlanta - An MRI Monday revealed no structural damage to Vick's sprained right knee. Vick is expected to start next week against New England.

Roland Williams, TE, St. Louis - Williams dislocated his right knee Sunday and will likely miss the rest of the season.

J.P. Losman, QB, Buffalo - Despite his struggles, Losman will likely remain the team's starter this week. It wouldn't hurt to pick up backup Kelly Holcomb, though.

Carnell Williams, RB, Tampa Bay - It doesn't appear his hamstring problem is serious – Williams wanted to return to play against the Lions in the third quarter but was overrruled by the team's medical staff – but you'd better have backup Michael Pittman ready to go.

Quentin Griffin, RB, Denver - From penthouse to outhouse, the Broncos starting running back last season was released Monday so that the team could sign safety Curome Cox.

Michael Bennett, RB, Minnesota - The trade of Bennett to the Cardinals is looking more and more likely. The Vikings reportedly only want a sixth-round pick in return for their former starter. Hold on to him for now, evern though he's lost his job permanently to Mewelde Moore.

Bobby Engram, WR, Seattle - Engram played three quarters with cracked ribs Sunday. Engram finished the game with nine catches for 106 yards, but you can expect him to be questionable until the ribs are healed.

Issac Bruce, WR, St. Louis. Bruce was out this week with turf toe and is expected to miss at least one more game with the painful injury. Kevin Curtis started in his place.
