Tuesday news and notes

Brian Westbrook, RB, Philadelphia. Bad news for the playoffs. Westbrook is done for the season after suffering a Lis Franc injury. This is a tough injury to recover from and will hurt Westbrook's long-term value. Ryan Moats will now be the starting running back.

Erron Kinney, TE, Tennessee. Kinney, the Titans' leading receiver, is out Sunday with a knee injury.

All of the Colts. Tony Dungy isn't saying whether he will pull his stars once the Colts clinch home field advantage for the playoffs. That could come as soon as this week with a win over Jacksonville. All the more reason to root for a Colts' loss, especially with the playoffs now here.

Matt Bryant, PK, Tampa Bay. Bryant's status is still up in the air, giving Todd France another week.

Donald Driver, WR, Green Bay. Driver is limited by a hip injury.

Neil Rackers, PK, Arizona. Rackers sought a second opinion on his torn calf, but it doesn't look good for the player who had been the NFL's Most Valuable Kicker this season.
