Week 10 Monday wrap

Cedric Benson, RB, Chicago. With Thomas Jones already hurting, Benson got his first NFL start Sunday. But he lasted just over a quarter before spraining his MCL, an injury that could cost him the rest of the season. Third-stringer Adrian Peterson had a 100-yard game in his place and could be the starter next week.

Leron McCoy, QR, Arizona. With Anquan Boldin and Bryant Johnson out, McCoy got extensive playing time and made the most of it with six catches for 70 yards. Boldin may be back this week, though, so temper that enthusiasm.

Charlie Batch, QB, Pittsburgh. Batch, starting in place of injured Ben Roethlisberger, suffered a broken bone in his throwing hand Sunday night. Roethlisberger could be back this week at Baltimore, though. If not, Tommy Maddox starts for the Steelers at Baltimore.

Kelly Holcomb, QB, Buffalo. Holcomb suffered a concussion in the team's 14-3 win over Kansas City. J.P. Losman, who began the season as the team's starter, replaced him and played well, throwing a pair of TD passes to Lee Evans. Losman will likely start again this week against San Diego.

Ernest Wilford, WR, Jacksonville. Wilford suffered a sprained shoulder in the fourth quarter of the team's win over Baltimore.

Dante Hall, WR/KR, Kansas City. Hall suffered a bruised left knee against Buffalo. If he's unable to play Sunday, bump the KDC defense down a notch.

Corey Dillon, RB, New England. Dillon lasted two plays against Miami before leaving with a tight calf. That's not a good sign for Dillon owners. New England is typically tough to get injury information out of.

Jay Fiedler, QB, Jets. Fiedler is a week or two away from returning from a dislocated throwing shoulder. Given the Jets' QB situation, he could be the starter when he returns.

Samkon Gado, RB, Green Bay. I told you to pick up Gado last week. If you missed out on getting him, it may be too late after he scored three touchdowns against Atlanta.
