Mid-week news

Joey Harrington, QB, Detroit. It's official, Harrington will start this week in place of injured Jeff Garcia.

Marc Bulger, QB, St. Louis. Bulger will start Sunday against Seattle.

Torry Holt, WR, St. Louis. Holt should be back this week against Seattle.

Issac Bruce, WR, St. Louis. Bruce has practiced all week but remains questionable to play Sunday.

Michael Clayton, WR, Tampa Bay. Clayton is out this week with a knee injury. Ike Hilliard will start.

Robert Ferguson, WR, Green Bay. Ferguson has yet to practice this week and could still be a week away from returning.

Priest Holmes, RB, Kansas City. Forget the Terrell Owens debacle. The news that will really have fantasy owners reeling this week is that Priest Holmes is done for the season because of a lump found on his spine while he was being checked over after suffering a concussion. Larry Johnson owners are rejoicing.

Julius Jones, RB, Dallas. Jones should be back this week after not having played since Oct. 9. Whether he regains his starting job by himself or shares carries remains to be seen.

Anquan Boldin, WR, Arizona. Boldin is out again this week with his bone bruise in his knee.

Thomas Jones, RB, Chicago. Don't count on Jones this week. His ribs are still bothering him and the team would like to take a look at Cedric Benson.

Lee Suggs, RB, Cleveland. Suggs was back from his thumb injury Wednesday. He remains questionable this week.

Roy Williams, WR, Detroit. Williams got just three plays in his "return" last week, but should see more playing time this week with Mike Williams likely out.

Samko Gado, RB, Green Bay. With Tony Fisher out this week with a rib injury, Gado will get his first career start this week.

Domanick Davis, RB, Houston. Davis took part in practice Wednesday despite his sore knee and should play Sunday.

Fred Taylor, RB, Jacksonville. Don't expect Taylor to play this week because of a very sore ankle. Greg Jones will start in his place.

Mewelde Moore, RB, Minnesota. Moore practiced Wednesday despite a wrist injury. He should play Sunday.
