Week 7 Tuesday roundup

Brian Griese, QB, Tampa Bay. It appears Griese's season is over with a torn ACL and MCL. Chris Simms will be the Bucs starter, but Tampa Bay also traded for Tim Rattay, who could push Simms if he doesn't play well.

Marc Bulger, QB, St. Louis. Bulger injured his shoulder and did not return to Monday night's loss to Indianapolis. His status is uncertain at this point. Veteran Jamie Martin would replace him.

Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers. As expected, Roethlisberger will be back when the Steelers play Cincinnati. The new backup, however, is Charlie Batch, as Tommy Maddox has been demoted.

Drew Bennett, WR, Tennessee. Bennett is out indefinitely after having surgery to repair a dislocated thumb.

Jamal Lewis, RB, Baltimore. Despie backup Chester Taylor's better numbers, Lewis remains the team's starting running back.

Kevin Jones, RB, Detroit. Jones injured his shoulder Sunday against Carolina and will wear a harness to protect the injury this week.
